When the Student is Ready, A Spirit (Not a Teacher) Will Appear

2 06 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Many of us have heard that the saying that “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” but I have found this not to be the case. First, the reason many of us believe that a teacher will appear when we are “ready” is because we live in a society that: 1) discourages spiritual education and, 2) focuses entirely on the physical sciences.  What I mean by discourages spiritual education and focuses on physical science is that once we enter the western education system as children.  We are discouraged from communicating with our ancestors and spirits, by fearing what we cannot physically assess with our five physical senses.  We are taught to think logically and to only entertain abstract and illogical thought in a religious setting.

So many of us (myself included) go all over the world (it seems) looking for a teacher and pledging our lives to individuals whom we think will teach us.  It is only after we have experienced some hardships due to us idolizing spiritual teachers that it becomes apparent. That our universe is composed of a spiritual and physical reality, which means everything that we physically see came into existence from spiritual reality. Therefore, the only reason why a teacher will appear “when the student is ready” is because the student ignored all of the spiritual signs that came in the beginning.

Most of us living in the West miss these signs because we live a society where Christianity is the major religion of influence.  Therefore, when something unplanned happens to us we are taught and trained to label it as a bad experience and blame it on the devil based upon our lower mind perspective.

What do I mean when I say a lower mind perspective?

Well, our mind is composed of three parts and they are the Superconscious, Conscious and subconscious mind. The Superconscious is responsible for governing all of the intuitive aspects of our mind, while the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories, emotions and the mental faculties needed to physically survive. The Conscious mind is simply the part of our being commonly called our soul, which is used to decide the part of our mind (Superconscious or subconscious) that is going to dominate our life.

For this reason, the Superconscious is personified as our Osar and symbolized as KAMTA on the Maa Aankh, and the subconscious is personified as Set and symbolized as TASETT.  While, the Conscious is symbolized as Hru (Horus), but the evolution of our consciousness is symbolized as the four solar discs surrounding the Maa Aankh.

Our Kemetic ancestors chose to symbolize the Superconscious as the dark fertile lands of the southern region of Kemet to remind us that like fertile soil.  The Superconscious yields unlimited potential and possibilities.  It gives us a more holistic perspective that allows us to see into the future.  Hence the reason, Osar is able to teach his people spiritual laws, introduce new sciences and lay the foundations for building a prosperous civilization.  All conflicts are resolved in a peaceful manner because everyone is seen as being part of the collective or a member of the same family. Therefore, what affects one individual will eventually have a domino effect and affect everyone.

The arid and red desert of the northern region was chosen to symbolize the subconscious to remind us that because the subconscious is responsible for governing all of our personal memories and emotions to help us to physically survive.  It gives us a very narrow, limited and selfish perspective about life.  As illustrated in the legend, after Set usurps the throne, he leads to civilization on a spiraling path to its demise because he offers no new solutions to the problems we face. All conflicts are resolved from a selfish perspective which creates more conflict that results in violent outcomes.

TASETT – the Lower Kemet/lower self/subconscious – sahu part of our being. TASETT also represents the SAHU, KHAB, KHABIT & KA Divisions of the Spirit

Let me give you a real-life example of a Setian perspective. I remember the first time I began to see these two perspectives was years ago when I was a kid in high school. In the mid-1980s when crack cocaine hit the streets of Detroit. People all over the city were dying due to their addiction to the drug, while kids all over the city were dying due to the rising homicide violence related to the drug. All of the high schools and eventually elementary schools installed metal detectors.  There were kids being shot and killed at school all over the city. I will never forget that as the city plunged to its demise, there was a summit held to discuss the issues with other officials in the metropolitan area.  When asked what could be done and if other communities could assist. There were officials outside of the City of Detroit in the more affluent neighborhoods that refused to help because they categorized the problem as an “urban problem.”  The only advice that was offered was Nancy Reagan’s slogan “Just Say No to Drugs!” while the Regan administration said, “Yes to Mass Incarceration.”

Image result for nancy reagan say no to drugs

This was the first time I  officially saw racism and classism at work because it did not take a genius to know that “urban problem” was code for a “Black problem.” My suspicions were confirmed when the U.S. government passed draconian laws imprisoning all people of color for possession of crack cocaine regardless if they were addicted or had plans to distribute, whereas individuals carrying a larger quantity of powder cocaine received less severe punishments and sentencing. Later when I got older and learned about Kemetic thinking, that is when I realized that this selfish perspective was classic Setian thinking because today’s “urban problem” exists all over the country and now, the more affluent people are suffering from opioid addictions as well.

The more Osarian approach to the problem would have been to recognize that people of all ethnicities use illicit drugs as a form of escape because they do not know how to cope with situations from a more sensible manner. America’s drug problems are not an “urban” problem, a Black or Brown problem but a “societal” problem affecting everyone within the country.  It is a continually growing problem because there are no spiritual institutions in place that help people to cope with these matters.

I remember watching a documentary that showed that when Canadian officials accepted that their country had a substance abuse problem.  They combatted the problem by focusing on educating people on how to cope with stressful matters using alternative treatment techniques like meditation and treatment. So that their citizens would not quickly turn to illicit drugs as an escape. As a result, the number of drug-related crimes decreased across the country. Please note that the Canadian government did not implement a perfect program because there is no one solution that is going to solve every problem. However, it should be noted that years before the U.S., they implemented a program to help ALL (not just a specific group) affected by illicit drugs versus imprisoning them.  The Canadian government simply took an “us” instead of a “them” approach to dealing with the problem.

To put it bluntly, If the U.S. had seen the crack cocaine epidemic as an issue that affected all American citizens instead of seeing it as a Black and Brown thing, the substance abuse problem it faces may not be as grand as it is today. This same selfish perspective can be seen in other US policies as well. For instance, if the U.S. had seen the erupting violence occurring in urban schools as an issue that would eventually affect the entire public school systems.  The number of school shootings we witness today would not be so common.

The thing about the Setian perspective is that it spiritually represents a childish mind state. This is the reason Set is said to be according to legend the youngest of the Kemetic divinities. Set’s youthfulness is also an allusion referring to the limited perspective that many youths live their lives from as they focus solely on the physical. For instance, those living from a Setian perspective will believe that when unplanned events occur. They are accidents, coincidences, etc. that just happens. Only individuals who have developed their consciousness to understand that we live in a cause and effect universe, know that nothing just happens. In other words, every time we have an unpleasant experience, it does not necessarily mean that it is bad. It only appears that way because our spiritual immaturity does not allow us to see the whole picture. To illustrate this, when the S*** hits the fan, we only see the physical things that occur in TASETT, which is symbolized as the Right Eye of Ra. To pass to the next stage of our development, we have to spiritually die, which is symbolized as the setting Ra Atum sun.

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Solar Eye and corresponds to literal and physical sight, hence the failure to see abstract and spiritual concepts.

So the question is what do you do when you are in this situation?

Generally speaking, simply relax and don’t fight it. The more you fight, the harder the experience will be because this is Maat’s way of restoring balance in your life. This is the reason (if you have not figured it out yet), that every time you become anxious the conditions around you become tenser. When you are rushing, that’s when things get in your way to slow you down. When you expect something to go wrong, that’s when things go wrong. These are all examples of Set manifesting himself in your life, which Maat supports because she is trying to connect you with your Osar who rests at the Amun Ra moment.

Why do we undergo this negative experience in the first place?

It is because during our lifetime while dwelling in TASETT you have acquired an impurity within your soul. This usually occurred somewhere between the Khepera and Ra moment.  The impure belief caused numerous problems in your life and manifested itself fully during the Ra and Ra Atum moment. When you surrender to your Higher Self and let it all go, it is when you meet your Osar and you are able to resolve your problem.

This means that the purpose of this experience is to purge the negative aspect out of you so that you can be receptive to the Spirit who is willing to teach you about you. which is symbolized as the Left Eye of Ra.

The Left Eye of Ra , which is associated with the Amun Ra moment on the Maa Aankh. It is also known as the Lunar Eye and corresponds to abstract and spiritual insight.

So, if you are going through a rough patch, it might be time for you to sit down, be quiet and listen to your Spirits to defeat your Set.

If Your Life Sucks It is Probably Because You Forgot You Are a God/Goddess Pt. 1

20 05 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I have been toying around with this post for a few weeks now because I was not sure how to deliver it, but the time has come to just put it out there and just say what needs to be said. So here it is…

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Our universe is composed of two realities and they are the invisible, spiritual realm and a visible, physical realm. As I have mentioned before, our Nilotic ancestors in Kemet and Kush loved to use metaphors and puns.  So, although they called the northernmost region Ta Sett – the Red Lands because of the soil was red and arid.  And, they called the southernmost region Kam Ta (KMT) – the Black Lands because the soil was black, rich and fertile. These terms are also metaphysical codes referring to the characteristics of the physical and spiritual realms.

TASETT is not just an arid land. It symbolizes the physical realm and all of its limitations. The ancient Bantu priests in Kemet chose the desert as a symbol to describe the physical realm, to remind us. That because a desert has a limited supply of water all living beings in the physical realm are in constant competition with one another. Simply put, it is about the survival of the fittest in the physical realm because it appears that there are limited resources. The limited resources in the physical realm combined with the competition to survive also convinces people that the only way to succeed in through direct action and aggression. This is the reason TASETT (the Red Lands and the physical realm) is chaotic and ruled by Set – the Lord of Confusion.

Therefore, when an individual is grounded or polarized solely in their thinking that there is only one reality and that is the physical realm.  This individual is totally controlled by their lower self or subconscious part of their being, which focuses solely on physical survival and lacks higher reasoning.  This individual is like an irate customer searching for goods that have already been sold.  When news is announced that there are only one of these goods available, they result in struggling and fighting other customers as if it were Black Friday, hence no higher reasoning.

KAMTA is not just the name for the black fertile land in the southern region of ancient Kemet. The term was not only chosen by the Kemetic people to describe the Kemetians dark complexion. It was used to remind people about the mysterious and unlimited nature of the spiritual realm. Where TASETT is limited, KAMTA is abundant. Where TASETT is actual, KAMTA is imaginary.  Survival in TASETT depends upon direct actions, physical competition, and aggression. Well, in KAMTA survival depends upon cooperation and spiritual development.

Therefore, when an individual understands the nature of this metaphysical reality called KAMTA. They know that when our thoughts are held in our conscious awareness over a period of time, they manifest our physical reality. The individual who understands the abundant nature of the spiritual realm knows that if they declare what they want. The universe will deliver their request, which is the reason KAMTA is ruled by Osar who symbolizes higher reasoning skills.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

What this means is that if you are having a lot of problems in your life, symbolized on the Maa Aankh (above) as the Ra/Midday Sun descending to Ra Atum/Sunset.  It is because you forgot you are a God or Goddess who can create his or her own reality. If you believe that our Perfect Creator is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, then you should be pleased to know that unlike the biblical deity, the Divine does not make mistakes. Everything that happens follows a Divine Plan, which means that all of your problems are stepping stones to help you to reclaim your GOD CONSCIOUSNESS back at Amun Ra moment.

Why They Discourage You From Doing Dark Energy/ Black Magick

15 04 2019

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Lately there has been a lot of talk about dark matter and dark energy since scientists have discovered that dark energy permeates all throughout the universe.  The interesting thing is that they have known about dark energy and dark matter for years but have recently decided to make it public that they are researching it. All one has to do is look at some of the most popular sci-fi movies that came out a while ago such as, The Fifth Element, Stargate, Thor: The Dark World and so on. In all of these films, the dark energy/matter is depicted as being extremely powerful and/or is the Enemy as in Dean Koontz Phantoms.

Now, according to modern science, dark energy is 68.3%  of the universe and dark matter is 27% of the universe, which is not visible unlike normal matter. What this means is that our universe is composed of 95% darkness, while light only makes up 5% of the universe.

This means in regards to spirituality and magic, that since magick is the manipulation of energy, while spirituality is basically the philosophy one adapts to help them to manipulate this universal energy effectively and safely.  Then, there is no such thing as white or black, good or evil magick because what is good for one is bad for another and vice versa.  There is no such thing as good and bad or right and wrong, either from a GOD perspective because it is all about perspective.

This also means that what we call or have been conditioned to believe in regards to white and black magick is really nonsense tainted with a dash of racism.  This begs us to ask the question, what really is dark energy and black magick? How did this nonsense that everything that is good is white and everything that is evil is black get started? Well, to answer this question we must first define what good and evil is.

Evil according to the Kemetic people is imbalance, while good to the Kemetic people is balance. From a shamanistic perspective, Osar (Asar, Osiris) was murdered by his younger brother Set because he was in a state of imbalance, signified by his naivety of his enemies. In other words, Osar was “too spiritual” and his head was way up in the clouds. But, Set is also imbalanced in the sense he lacks order, structure and it is “too physical.”  Balance comes about through Osar’s heir Hru as symbolized by the white and red Pschent crown that Hru wears, but Hru did not become good overnight. He had to fight for that balance and continue to fight to maintain it.

To see this perspective, we must remember that on the Maa Aankh, Osar is the personification of our Superconscious which is the creative and intuitive part of our being, while Set is the personification of our subconscious, which is the habitual part of our being.  This means that Osar represents the extraordinary and Set represents the norm.  Said another way, Osar symbolizes that which is different and free flowing, while Set symbolizes everything that is ordinary and in the norm.  From an energy perspective we could say that KAMTA represents the divine feminine and TASETT the divine masculine, but as I mentioned. Both of these energies were seen as being destructive in the eyes of the Kemetic people because they were not balanced. One was like hot water to the extreme, while the other was cold water to the extreme, hence Hru symbolizes the balance between the two forces or energies.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

This means in a western Christian dominated society, anything that was free flowing, out of the norm or different was and is considered evil.  Here’s another fact to chew on. Have you noticed that no matter how scientifically sound you are – meaning most of us who are on an alternative spiritual path can explain our tradition using modern science, yet we are demonized?  Does it make sense now?

Now, I am sure you are asking, “What does this have to do with magick/spirituality?” Well, everything because if you are trying to manifest a change in your life doing magick/spirituality. You are not going to get very far because of this social conditioning. Subconsciously you are going to be held back because your Set does not want you to be ostracized and seen as being different. Your Set will discourage you doing anything that is considered too extreme or too different, but the only way to advance is to step out of your comfort zone and trust your intuition, which is really what the Darkside is all about.

If you have followed my blog posts and books, you know that I was introduced to the Kemetic path by my Spirits who spoke to me when I was at a very low point. This was my first jolt away from the norm.  Since I was raised as a Christian by very devout Christian parents, I was taught not to believe in Spirits, so for the next ten or so years, I spent a lot of time deprogramming my mind and cleansing myself of useless doctrines and unproven theories that were not going to assist me in this incarnation.

Along the way, as I embraced the Kemetic philosophy and what some would call the Kemetic theology.  I encountered a number of spiritual practitioners who assisted me along the way such as Ms. Smith a Root worker, Ms. B. a Yaya (priestess) in the Palo Mayombe religion, Iya the Oshun priestess who told me that I was called to be a shaman, and Papa the little old Black Cuban man who finalized my spiritual education before I made my final descent to meet my Spirits face-to-face.

My final jolt came when I became deathly ill.  That’s when I met my Spirits whom I learned never abandoned me as a child but were ignored because I had been social conditioning to only trust and believe in what I could physically see.

The society we live in is Setian in the sense that it is not holistic and does not encourage spirituality. We have all been conditioned to accept what we physically see as a reality.  This is why many people missed the clever Kemetic puns and allegories such as the Kemetic people telling us that they were Dark Energy people. Their entire culture focused on the practical use of Dark Energy but because we live in superficial society. We only focused on the idea that the Kemetic people called themselves Kemetic because of the fertile black soil due to the inundation of the Nile.   Thankfully things are shifting and we see now that KMT or Kemet are all code words for Dark Energy, hence KAMTA.

Understand, dark energy and dark matter cannot be seen and it ties right back to KAMTA and the understanding why it is called the Black Land (matter), yet it corresponds to the hidden part of our being, which is our Superconscious personified as Osar. While TASETT symbolizes the subconscious mind, which is the known and habitual part of our being that can be seen in the light personified as Set.

I know some will disagree but proof can be seen in the fact that the southern region (particularly the Kushite region) was considered the home of the Kemetic peoples’ ancestors. It should be noted that the southern region of Kemet or Upper Kemet was larger than the northern region or lower Kemet, which is similar to 95/5 ratio of darkness/light in the universe.   Another important concept to keep in mind is that Osar (Asar, Osiris) according to legend was the ruler of KAMTA (the southern region), as signified by the white Djet crown.  It makes sense why Osar is also the Lord of the Underworld Amenta (the Hidden Land) and the Tuats – 12 Hours of Night) and why all of these mysterious lands are synonymous with one another.

The point is that our Nilotic ancestors have been telling us for the longest time that the basis of our culture centers on understanding this potent energy that exists throughout the universe and within our being.  The Kemetic people left clues on how to use this energy because the practical use of dark energy is our ancestral heritage and culture.  For other people, it may require them to explore other cultures and peoples’ traditions, but for us, as Children of Osar.  All we need to do is do it because it is our birth right.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

For instance, an example of working with this hidden Dark Energy was when my deceased grandmother helped me to make a bridge between the Kemetic Amun Ra tradition and Kongo Cross, which led to the discovery of the Maa Aankh. I like telling people this story because it is a reminder to me that I am not some mere mortal who descended from a flawed Adam and Eve creation, and was was born in sin.  But, I truly am from the Most High because I brought myself into being, and here lies the reason ‘they’ do not want you to work with black magick. It will awaken your consciousness and you will no longer be a slave.

Ring Shouting My B-Day Like A God/Goddess (How to Celebrate as a GOD/GODDESS)

Never Forget

Today, as I sit her sipping on a cup of coffee, contemplating on how, on this very day I was born.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Copyright 2019 Derric Moore

I look across the room and notice my 14 month old squatting. Before I can think, “She’s pooping,” I wonder in amazement at how she knows that naturally this is the way her body works.  When she regains her stance signaling that she is finish. I reach for the diapers, wipes and ointment, while she tries to climb on the bookshelf. Funny how she knows certain things but does not see the danger in climbing the 6 foot high shelves that could easily fall.  I see the manifestation of Npu in her as her inquisitive spirit gets into everything and runs away from Daddy as he reaches to change her diaper.  She reminds me of the child within me.  I honor you Khepera for the Beginning.

Then, I hear from my teenage niece who tells me, “Happy Birthday!” in passing. She is too busy texting to have a one-on-one real conversation.  I over hear that she does not like people messing with her things and how upset it makes her. I remember when she born and when I changed her diapers, now she is busy teenager wrapped up in her own life. It is confirmation to me that it around our adolescent age that we come into the false sense of ourselves based upon the physical things surrounding us.  However, it is necessary for us to realize our purpose. I honor you Ra for Life.

My Mom enters and sings a brief rendition of Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday song. I am positive that as she wishes me well on my birthday, she remembers the pregnancy, the childbirth, the getting up with my father in the wee hours  of the night because she hears me coughing or crying because of an earache, stomach ache, scratching from the chickenpox, etc.  I see in her heart that there are some things she wish she could have done differently. Then she reminds me that Sunday school is at 10 tomorrow, thus verifying her role as an elder. Yet, signifying the death or end of an era that has become obsolete.  There was a time when the Church was the most important and most significant institution in our community. Nowadays it is relic meant to be appreciated, studied and admired in a museum because we do not live in the days of (physical) slavery any more. My niece showed me in the previous Ra moment that there are a lot of distractions preventing us from seeing our true self that was expressed automatically in my baby. I honor you Ra Atum for Death, hence Change.

The words of Ra to Oset “I am KhepeRa in the morning, Ra at noon, Tmu (Ra Atum) in the evening, ” which are all references to the Moments of the Sun. More information see: https://www.1solalliance.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=133_55276&zenid=d807dd7a6fb14e88b5833ee0a37cb30c

So, why on this day was I born? I am aware of all things both past and present.  If I decide to live tomorrow and do things according to some plan. It signifies something that easily missed, which is that I was born on this day because I chose to be here at this exact moment in time. Just like my daughter was aware of certain things regarding her being, prior to being conditioned like my niece and mom.   I am aware of certain things. I am aware that I AM.

Happy Earthday Amun Ra. “Thank you for Rebirth.”

Today, I dance for you.

5 Steps to Get Through Any Spiritual Storm

19 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

In this post I am continuing to give a little insight to help those on the path because a lot of people do not talk about lows to spiritual development.  We always hear people talk about how Jesus got them through some ordeal but rarely do Kemetic people give a testimony of how they overcame an issue, which 1) gives a false impression that this path is a piece of cake, and. 2) Makes one feel who is going through an ordeal that they are weak if they are falter in any way because they are not being perfect.

So, I am here to let you know that spiritual development like any other discipline has its highs and lows. We are all here because we are trying to perfect ourselves and according to the Maa Aankh.  When we begin to experience gross losses, setbacks, lawsuits, relationship ills, problems, grave misfortunes, tragedies, unexplainable illnesses, financial woes, etc. It is an omen from the Universe that we have reached the Ra moment and that our Sun has begun to set, thus moving to the Ra Atum (Death) moment.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Although Set is the lord of chaos, confusion, calamity, storms, etc. and the ruler of TASETT (the physical realm, hence the name TA Sett), it is this particular quarter (Ra to Ra Atum) of the Maa Aankh that we see Set in his rawest form.

Courtesy of R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz who gives a different version of this passage, stating “At about noon [Ra moment], the barque of Re-Horakhty reaches the summit of a mountain where a serpent 50 cubits (26 meters) in length is found whose foremost 3 cubits are of silex. This serpent swallows in one gulp part of the stream. Seth, at the front of the boat, ‘directs his lance of fire against him, and causes him to cough up all that he had swallowed.'(_Book of the Dead_, Chapter 108, quoted in _Symbol and the Symbolic_, page 81.

But do not be discouraged. You must remember that our Creator is Perfect so there is no such thing as good versus evil. There is only planned and unplanned, which means that our Creator created Set for specific purpose and that is to be our greatest adversary. Set witnessed our birth and he created the resistance in the birth canal that we fought against to physically survive.  He created all of the opposition that exists in our life and here is just another test to prove to ourselves that we are who we say we are, a GOD/GODDESS.

Remember, you are a god/goddess and you chose to incarnate to this physical plane we call TASETT (the Red Lands). This is TASETT and it is ruled by Set meaning it is not supposed to be fair, just, equitable or equal. It is supposed to be a bad experience so that we are inspired to return home (the realm of the gods/goddesses – Amenta, which is deep within KAMTA).

Understand. You chose to be here and you chose all of your experiences that are experiencing, both the good and the bad because you came here to master your divinity, which is your ultimate objective. You may not remember making these choices because you were born to a family and grew up with friends in a community supported by a society that discourages spiritual culture.  But both Osar (Asar, Osiris, Higher Self) and Set (lower self) remember the oath you made prior to being born and they are committed to helping you fulfill your destiny.

Your Osar is committed to being a silent voice until you decide for your Osar to take a more prominent lead in your life, and your Set is committed to creating as many obstacles in your life to force you to resurrect your Osar. In other words, Set (the spiritual storms) exist to make us stronger and to help you to make through his storm, here are five suggestions that will help you:

  1. Get a journal and journalize your experience. Write down everything that is occurring. The purpose of this exercise is to help you to clear your mind.
  2. Ask yourself why is this experience occurring in your life right now?  Typically whenever something unplanned or negative occurs, we tend to point the finger at what others have done. This question is meant to hep us take responsibility of our own actions, behaviors and ultimately our life.
  3. Stick to one spiritual practice that will bring you solace.  If meditating works for you, then meditate. If prayer works for you, then just pray.  If doing one particular ritual works for you, then do that one particular ritual. Remember, there is no right or wrong because it all occurs within our mind.  Sometimes, when I am going through a storm the last thing i want to do is do any altar work so I work with my spirits mentally.
  4. Do the opposite of what you feel. When you are in the storm a lot of times your feelings will betray you because you are prone to reacting from a subconscious (sahu) level. This is the moment you should do the opposite of what you normally do. For instance, if you are in the habit of going at it alone, it may to your advantage to get with a group and vice versa.
  5. Finally, focus your attention on helping others. I know that sounds odd, but our Osar is a universal cooperative force that usually comes to the forefront whenever we are in a peaceful mind state. If you are worried about how something is going to work out, how are you going to get some money, how anything, your Osar will stay in the deep recesses of your mind because you are trying to solve the problem based upon your understanding, and not relinquishing power to infinite your Higher Self or Osar. This mental switch of relinquishing control or submitting is hard for many of us and gets easier with practice, but the simplest way for newcomers to make this switch is by focusing on helping others. For instance, volunteer to help someone free of charge. Leave some money anonymously at an aisle in a grocery store for someone. Remember, you are not trying to boost your ego, you are trying to boost your Higher Self and these are all activities that strengthen your BA (Higher Self) and weaken the influence of your sahu (lower self/ego).

Now, to get a little more real, the reason your Set is here testing you in the first place and at this exact moment is because you have some spiritual impurities that need to be burned out of your system, and this is the tempering process to do it.   The cooling part comes afterwards, so stay strong because it  is during the Ra Atum and Amun Ra moment that your spiritual guides will come to your aide. For instance, you may have some complete strangers talk to you out of the blue and give you great insight and/or gifts like money. This is where you will experience the unlimited power of KAMTA. The only way for you to know this realm is by witnessing it and this is why you are going through the storm. So, don’t fear and don’t fret, the storm never last.

Prepare yourself knowing that you will be stronger and wiser in the end.

Why We Love Amun Ra?

18 08 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

In a previous post I mentioned that Akhenaten was not a Kemetic hero and how although archeologists and historians hold this heretic king in high regards because he tried to convert the Kemetic people to his own-self tailored religion (Atenism).  It was because of the valiant efforts of the faithful adherents of the Amun Ra tradition, that Kemet was rescued from the jaws of death and return her once more to a state of glory.

If you don’t know about Amun Ra you would assume that the reason the Kemetic people returned to this spiritual path is because they simply like worshipping idols and living a polytheistic life versus Akhenaten’s monotheistic peace-one-god fearing – religion.  Don’t be fooled Family. All of the monotheistic “I come in peace” religions have brought nothing but demise, which is the reason the world is in the current spiritual state today. So, what was so special about the Amun Ra tradition? Why is it, thousands of years later people are still attracted to the Amun Ra path?  Why is it despite the demonization from the western academic community, western religious groups, not to mention the gross film industry that portrays the Kemetic people as non-black-Africans and ETs, people are still attracted to this ancient path.  What is it that is so great about the Amun Ra tradition?

Well, to understand this we must do two things:

First, realize that although archeologists and historians claim that the Kemetic people left no explanatory texts regarding the Amun Ra tradition, the remnant of the Amun Ra tradition have been found throughout Central and West Africa.

Second, we must realize that the Kemetic people did not worship gods and goddesses, but that these so-called deities are concepts used to describe an abstract quality that exists in the Universe and within our being. For instance, Osar (Osiris) is not a physical god of the underworld but symbolizes the Higher Self. Set is not some evil god of chaos but symbolizes our lower self – in particular our ego who is the culprit of most of the problems in our life. Failure to see these “gods/goddesses” as concepts within Nature and within our being will prevent you from growing spiritually because you are unable to see the correspondence between you and other living things. In other words, you see yourself as separate from everything, thus making you more competitive (aggressive) and less cooperative (interdependent).

This allows us to see a direct cultural link between the Kemetic people and traditional societies.  I found through my personal research a cultural connection between the Kemetic people and the Bantu-Kongo people of Central Africa. By making one-to-one correspondence between the Kemetic and ancient Bantu-Kongo philosophy.  I discovered the Maa Aankh, which indicates that we live in a dualistic world that is governed by Maa.

This means in a nutshell that what goes up must come down, for every right there is a left, for every cause, there is an effect.  This constant flux is what I refer to as the Shu (Kemetic Yang) and Tefnut (Kemetic Yin) of life and we can say that it manifests itself as stress and rest.  Therefore, contrary to western thinking, life is not black and white. Nature is not totally competitive, but it balances itself by having a cooperative aspect. This is the reason lions and other predators do not hunt 24/7.  We must understand that between white and black that there are a lot of shades of grey.  This means everything in life has levels.

Stress, for the record is not bad. Stress is nothing more than resistance and it is needed to help build strong muscles, which is necessary to lift weights and heavy objects. However, too much stress can cause a problem because without proper and adequate rest our muscles can be overextended and can never recuperate. If we understand that Rest/Stress are two-sides of the same coin.  For our purposes, the Rest side is symbolized as KAMTA and the Stress side is symbolized as TASETT. This means there are four probabilities in regards to mental states. Therefore:

  • We have excessive rest, which is symbolized by the Amun Ra mental state.
  • Average rest which is symbolized by the Khepera mental state.
  • Average stress which is symbolized by the Ra mental state, and.
  • Excessive stress, which is symbolized by the Ra Atum mental state.

Let’s see some working examples.

 

The Amun Ra Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Rest)

One day we feel as if we are on top of the world. Everything is going fine. We are meditating, doing rituals, studying, etc. on a regular basis. We got money in our pockets and the bills are paid. There are no worries.  No drama, which means we are at the Amun Ra mental state or what many call Nirvana or Namaste (Notice the serene look that appears on all ancient Amun Ra statues and icons). It should be noted that the reason this state is so blissful is because our awareness is internalized, hence the Sun is within KAMTA.

The Khepera Modality of Daily Living (Average Rest)

It would be great for us all to live in this mental state all the time, which is the reason so many meditation teachers spend lifetimes trying to master it, but we are thrown out of this state of bliss the more stress we become or the more we externalize our awareness.  Hence, our Sun is at the Khepera moment meaning we are more on the edge of KAMTA, then TASETT.

Babies are the only human beings on the planet that are naturally close to this mental state because babies have little to no concerns or worries in the world. However, infants do worry about when they are going to receive their next feeding and this is what throws them out of the Amun Ra mental state.  This is because any time we think about our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc. Our awareness is externalized. There are only a few people in our world who are able to walk around with a smile on their face and live totally worry free knowing all of their concerns will be addressed.

Although it would be great to live a life in bliss by walking around in Amun Ra, for most of us it is just not practical. So most of us are drawn to the Khepera mental state because we are concerned about our survival, the survival of our loved ones, etc. This naturally makes us think about out our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc.  At this mental state, most of us are able to easily retreat back to Amun Ra when things go awry. The reason most people attend church or any other religious service regularly is because the religious service is able to assist them in returning mentally to the Amun Ra mental state, which is the mindset that everything is working according to plan.  Some other activities that help us to return to the Amun Ra mental state from the Khepera moment are daily, weekly and monthly rituals; meditation and meditative exercises, which means that the reason the Kemetic people favored the Amun Ra path over Atenism is because they had tools (icons) to assist them in returning their awareness inward.

The Ra Modality of Daily Living (Average Stress) 

However, most of do not live our day-to-day life in the Khepera mental state. The society we live in forces most of us to live at the Ra mental state where we must compete and fight for everything that we want and need.  Here most of are in a competitive mind state and we fight everything.  Notice that the Ra moment is opposite of the Amun Ra moment, which means we have transitioned from the mind state of thinking our concerns will be care for to we must take of our concerns ourselves because our awareness is totally externalized. This also means that since our awareness is very externalized, it requires a lot of effort to return to our natural Amun Ra state, which is the reason many opt for the use of temporary fixes like alcohol, drugs, sex, etc.  I hope you are seeing the pattern, which is that the more externalized our awareness is the harder it is for us return to our divine state of being and the more we identify with our external environment.

The Ra Atum Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Stress) 

It should be noted that the Ra moment is a very volatile mind state because too much stress leads to Ra Atum.  So, the Ra moment signifies the start of the downwind in our life.  This is when everything (it seems) starts going awry and we have major obstacles, obstructions, problems, major setbacks, etc. occur but, this is all due to us externalizing everything.  It is important to understand that excessive stress is symbolized as Ra Atum and it signifies a drastic need for change in one’s current actions, activities and behaviors, etc. or else death.

Therefore, from a contemporary perspective we see that although King Akhenaten may not have planned for it, his Atenism religion was racing Kemet towards the Ra Atum moment or the moment of death.  This is the reason the Kemetic people returned to the Amun Ra path and Kemet was saved because it was our initial Divine mind state.

We can use the Maa Aankh in our life to see where our current actions and behaviors are leading us today and return to our initial Divine mind state as well.  For instance, if you feel as if you are on top of the world. You are feeling lucky and blessed, you are most likely around the Khepera and Amun Ra moment.  You would do well to try to maintain this mental state by balancing your awareness so that it does not become to externalized, hence having one foot in the KAMTA (spiritual realm) and TASETT (physical realm).

However, if you are experiencing some major obstructions, (e.g. the loss of a family member, health issues, etc.) this is a sign that you may be at the Ra moment and your life has taken a turn towards Ra Atum. Remember, death does not necessarily mean the end or final act but simply indicates a grave situation due to excess and extreme externalization of our awareness where you are more in TASETT than KAMTA. You are reminded that you simply need to draw your awareness (Sun) back within.

We love Amun Ra because we love basting in the power and peace of our initial Divine consciousness.

Practicing the Maa Aankh (Kamitic Righteous Living)

20 09 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family.

You know, since the conception and creation of the Maa Aankh, I have found this simple yet complex diagram to be remarkably beautiful and powerful in its ability to guide me to more profound truths. First, the Maa Aankh cosmogram is based upon the surviving Bantu-Kongo philosophies that were brought to North America via the slave trade and syncretized with Pentecostal Christianity, which has been combined with Kamitic (Ancient Egyptian) and traditional Kongo philosophy in order to restore one back to his or her glory.

You see, I learned contrary to popular belief, that early African Americans did not lose all of their cultural practices as initially thought. It appears this way only because a substantial amount of African American culture (language, beliefs, foods, etc.) has been absorbed by the greater and dominant American society.

Archaeological artifacts and historical documentation reveals that a substantial amount of African American culture survived the enslavement period primarily because of the Bantu-Kongo cosmogram known as the Dikenga, Yowa or Kongo Cross.

This is the reason generally speaking African Americans unconsciously continue to engage in similar cultural practice that have been found throughout the Afro-diaspora (especially in regards to honoring the dead), despite not having any knowledge of other African and African derived traditions.

 This is because what I discovered was that early African Americans did not lose their culture. Instead what early African Americans loss was their cultural philosophy and theology, which is the indigenous, traditional or ancestral explanation that explains the purpose behind the cultural practice. To compensate for this loss and combat the cruelty of slavery, early African Americans adopted and borrowed concepts from Protestant Christianity.  Today however, the concepts of Christianity have outlived their purpose which explains why the number of churches and temples within in our steadily declining communities, is steadily rising, but none of the problems that exist are being solved. (Hence, “Everyone believes they are called to be a preacher or some other religious leader.” In truth they are just ego-tripping.) As a result, this has inspired many (myself included) to search for an unadulterated cultural philosophy.

Unfortunately, when I tried to research the traditional philosophy of the Bantu-Kongo, I discovered that because the Kongo- Angolan region was the first to encounter the Europeans.  They were also the most devastated by the Transaltantic Slave trade, imperialism and civil discord, which meant that most of the traditional Bantu-Kongo philosophies was lost (especially with the passing of the great Kongo scholar Dr. Kimbwandende Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau).

Thankfully, the Kamitic (Ancient Egyptian) Amun Ra tradition had similar beliefs as the Bantu-Kongo.

WhoAmI?

So when I combined the Kamitic beliefs with the existing Kongo Cross information that survived in North America; through channeling it led to the creation of the Maa Aankh.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The Maa Aankh like most sacred cosmograms or medicine wheels found around the world, can be interpreted a number of ways depending upon how you use it. The following are some of the most common interpretations:

From a personal perspective, since the Kamitic word “Maa” meaning balance, order, righteousness and truth, and “Aankh” means life or to swear an oath. The Maa Aankh can be translated as “To swear an oath to live truth” or “Righteous Living.” From a group or tribal perspective the Maa Aankh could be interpreted to mean the “Order of Life” or “Holistic Living.”

These different interpretations are all based upon the basic understanding of the Maa Aankh, which consists of land above and the land below symbolizing Earth surrounded by four discs.  These discs symbolize the four moments of the sun described in KiKongo as – Sunrise (Kala – Black), Midday (Tukula – Red), Sunset (Luvemba – White) and Midnight (Musoni – Yellow, when the sun is believed to be shinning on the other side). The four solar discs also symbolize man and woman’s soul and correspond exactly to the Kamitic Amun Ra divinities birth – Khepera (Creative Ra or Creative Power), life – Ra (Authoritative Ra or Overseeing Power), death – Ra Atum (Complete Ra or simply the Power of Revolution) and rebirth – Amun Ra (Hidden Ra or Hidden Power).

Thereby indicating that the Kamitic gods are not gods at all but are abstract concepts and attributes of God describing the evolution of one’s soul and consciousness.

From a metaphorical perspective the Maa Aankh provides deeper insight into the Kamitic Story of Osar when the land above is symbolized as TASETT – the Red Lands or Lower Kamit ruled by Set, and the land below is symbolized as KAMTA – the Black Lands or Upper Kamit ruled by Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek). According to legend Osar came into power when humanity was at its lowest, but he managed to uplift his people by teaching them Maa. All loved Osar but his youngest brother Set had grown increasingly jealous of Osar and eventually killed him.  Thanks to the loving devotion of Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis in Greek), Osar’s beloved wife, Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus in Greek) the heir of Osar was born, who after surviving many attempts on his life as a child. Hru grew to adulthood but after being visited in his dream by his deceased father Osar who instructed him to avenge his wrongful death. Hru challenged his evil uncle for the throne. Finally after numerous battles and litigation, Hru finally defeated his uncle and united the kingdom.  This is why he rests in the center of the Maa Aankh, wearing both crowns, indicating that everything extends and everything returns.

Again metaphorically speaking, the Story of Osar can be interpreted a number of ways. Consequently, some see the story as a metaphorical retelling of historical events, while some others may interpret it as a prophecy.  In either case, because the Story is a great story, no interpretation is incorrect because each interpretation communicates a deeper truth about the fight between good and evil.

Hru Osar and Set

However, metaphysically speaking which means going beyond the physical.  When TASETT is used to symbolize our subconscious self or the division of our being that functions on autopilot in our daily visible life, while KAMTA (since black also refers to invisible) is is used to symbolize our superconscious self or the intuitive part of our being, and Hru is conscious self.  The Story of Osar due to the Maa Aankh takes on a more profound meaning. It indicates that since Osar is the ruler of KAMTA or our intuitive superconscious memories (ancestors, spirit guides, angels, spiritual energies, hidden forces, etc.) and Set is the ruler of TASETT or our habitual, personal subconscious memories (all the conditionings, habits and learnings we have acquired in this present life time, etc.).  In other words, it is the conscious use of our subconscious that leads to our divine awakening.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

The Story of Osar therefore becomes an allegory about the constant daily fight we all must undergo between our higher, superconscious, divine self and our lower, subconscious, ego self. Meaning our salvation or spirituality is all about learning how to surrender control to our higher spirit, higher self or Osar, instead of being controlled by our lower spirit, lower self, ego or Set.

The Maa Aankh from this perspective is a visual reminder what all the great sages of humanity have told us since the time of immemorial, that the Kingdom of God is found within. In other words, peace, happiness, prosperity and power are all ethereal concepts, which mean they can’t be found externally. These attributes can only be found within by looking beyond the physical. In other words, the only one who can save you is yourself and as soon you realize this, is when you will be free.

Hope that helps.
