Dear Mom, The Reason I Don’t Go To Church…

13 09 2014

Dear Mom,

I have wanted to have this conversation with you for the longest time but, I kept deferring it because I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.  But when you came over to my house and saw my shrine, I figured the time was right for me to tell you the reason why I don’t go to church.

As you know, you raised me to be a thinking man. Well, I have done just that, and I thought about a lot of things that I have been taught when I was younger, which led me to discover a branch of philosophy called metaphysics. Metaphysics basically means beyond the physical, which in this case deals with looking at things and events from a more profound perspective.

Well, it was through metaphysics that I discovered that the human mind is composed of three parts called the conscious, subconscious and superconscious. The conscious mind is the part of our mind that makes decisions on what we want to do, so if you want to get a drink of water for example, then you simply make a decision and go get it. The subconscious is the part of the mind that governs all of our autonomous body functions, like the digestion of our food, the regulation of our heartbeat, the pumping of oxygen through our bloodstream, etc., and all our memories.  I will discuss the superconscious here later.

Usually when things are going well in our life, it is because we consciously make a decision to do something like what we want to eat, what we want to do, etc. and our subconscious is on board.  For instance, you want something to drink, the subconscious part of our being stimulates our body to get up and get something to drink and so on. When it comes to more serious issues like going to school, finishing a task, etc., the same applies. The conscious part of our being says, “I want to go school, finish this project, “etc. and the subconscious, which governs our body complies with our conscious mind’s will.

But there are times when the subconscious refuses to follow the commands given to it by the conscious. For example, when it comes to dieting, creating a constructive habit like exercising or breaking a destructive habit like overeating or late eating, and so on. These are prime examples of the subconscious refusing to follow the conscious’ commands. You see, the subconscious can only do what it has seen or learned from others. This means if a child grew up in a household hearing their parents argue over money. Then most likely, out of habit when the child grows up he or she is going to do the same thing rather they realize it or not. You see the subconscious will tell the child to do these things because it stores all of our memories based upon good and bad feelings, and this is where all of our problems begin. It is how our subconscious classifies or categorizes good and bad experiences based upon how we feel.

The good thing about our subconscious classifying good and bad based upon pleasure and pain is that when we feel fire we know to move our hand, which is good. So usually any time we get a sense that we are in danger, our subconscious gives us the motivation to get out of harm’s way, which is great.  The bad thing is that whenever we feel bad or depressed, our subconscious interprets this as danger as well and wants us to get out of harm’s way.  It wants us to feel good by any means, so it will tell us to overeat, indulge in sweets, have a drink, take some drugs, explore a sexual perversion, etc. to make us feel better. All because the subconscious lacks the ability to reason and make decisions, because remember, this is the function of the conscious part of our mind. This is the reason when we hear of people doing something that doesn’t make sense, it is because they were acting or better said reacting and responding to their subconscious emotions. As grand dad used to say, “They didn’t think.”

This means metaphysically speaking that most of the people who are suffering from some ailment, illness and having some problem in their life, it is because they are under the influence of their subconscious, which has made them slaves to their emotions. To be more specific we could call it habits and addictions.  So, when a person can’t control their anger it is because they are in the habit of acting out and flying off on the handle. An individual that overeats, overdrinks, etc. has basically developed a habit of using these behaviors as vices. So, the question that comes to mind of course is how do you stop it? How do you break a destructive habit? Well, the only way to break a destructive habit is by replacing it with a constructive habit, and here enters the superconscious.

The superconscious mind is the intuitive part of our being. It is the part that speaks to us and tells us that we probably shouldn’t engage in a particular behavior or should turn down another path to avoid an accident. The superconscious is the divine spark that exists within us all and whenever we make a decision to do something and stick to it. It is this part of our being that gives us the power to overcome any destructive habit we have partaken in.  It is the true problem solver in our life that gives us solutions to whatever troubles us through our dreams, hunches, visions, prophecies and even messages from others. So basically, in order to break a subconscious destructive habit, we simply need to replace it with a constructive superconscious habit.

How does this work?

Well, remember that time when I was ill? As you will recall, I was ill for several months, which meant that subconsciously my mind was in the habit of being sick. Consequently, I began to have ill thoughts along with feeling ill. As you can imagine, it is hard to pick yourself up and get back on the horse when you feel ill and everything around you seems so bleak. It is sort of like trying to stay optimistic and tell yourself that you will get better around 20 people who believe and will verbally say that you won’t get better. Yes, talk about developing will power.

Well, the remedy is to imagine how you would live if you were never ill.  In other words, what would you do if you weren’t ill? What are all the things that you would do if you never were ill at all? One of the things I imagined that I could do when my body was ill was running and dancing, because remember I could barely walk a few steps back then.  When you imagine this on a continuous basis and begin to act on faith of this prayer request. Healing is right around the corner. I remember when I sent forth my real prayer request and kept it in mind, one day I found myself dancing to some music that I liked and running down the stairs.  Now, this is not something that someone told me that works. It is something I know for a fact that works because I have used it several times on two different occasions and it worked for me.

Part of the reason why it worked is because the subconscious is very impressionable and will believe anything if it is convincing enough. This means that most people whose prayers go unanswered is not because God doesn’t approve of their request, but simply because most people don’t believe that their request will be fulfilled in the first place. They simply don’t have any faith, and regardless of what anyone says, “Seeing is believing”.  Most people will only believe that they are blessed after they are blessed. They will believe that they are healthy, after they are healed. They will believe they are prosperous after they get money and prosperity, which is all wrong.

You are supposed to see it first and believe it. Imagine being healthy and you will be healthy. Imagine being prosperous and you will be prosperous. Imagine being successful and you will be successful and so on, because the Divine works specifically through our superconscious mind. But, sometimes it is hard to keep your mind focused on your objective. Imagine having faith you will be healthy and your doctor tells you otherwise or some people you encounter aren’t encouraging. It is hard because the last thing you want to hear is what you can’t do from people who don’t have any faith in the superconscious, the divine spark of God within you or simply no faith in God.

Colosseum & Mega Churches

Mega Churches

The last place an individual that is sincerely praying to better their life wants to be is around a bunch of people who are believing and telling them that the reason they are ill, having problems controlling their anger or overcoming any destructive habit, etc. is because they have sinned, cursed, the wretched of the earth, etc.  Frankly, I didn’t need anyone theorizing to me why they think I got ill.  It wasn’t important because I just wanted to be healed, but the most negative, depressive and pessimistic people in our community are church going people. This is the reason our communities have at least ten churches within a mile radius, meanwhile poverty and crime are steady on the rise. Everyone it seems wants to be a pastor and wants to fight over who is right and wrong, but it is clear they have no spiritual power.  Going to church has simply become an empty tradition where people just go every Sunday or numerous days of the week, out of (subconscious) habit.

So, when you are trying to overcome an illness or some other destructive thing occurring in your life. You don’t want to hear about the drama going on in the choir, the kitchen, the drama between Deacon so-and-so and Missionary or Usher So-and-So, etc. You need to truly worship the God within you, which means keeping your mind stayed on your superconscious request and avoiding as many distractions as you possibly can. Including negative churchgoing folks. Yes, it is hard to live righteously.

Thankfully, Africans and other non-Westerners like the Native Americans, Chinese, etc. developed cultural ways and practices to help us focus and overcome this little dilemma, by tapping into the superconscious and utilizing it like a sixth sense. Understanding that one of the best ways to impress an idea or thought on our mind was by using symbols, various non-Western cultures created elaborate myths and legends full of archetypes. For instance, metaphysically speaking the subconscious was symbolized as the evil or bad part of humanity and the superconscious was seen as the good part.  Almost every non-Western culture has a version of this concept.  In fact, there is an old Cherokee story where a grandfather was sitting by the fire with his grandchildren and trying to teach them the difference between good and bad. The grandfather tells his grandchildren, “There is a good wolf and a bad wolf living inside each of us. The good wolf is love, compassion, courage, generosity, fortitude, discipline, laughter and every worthy virtue a human being is capable of. The bad wolf is anger, hatred, laziness, jealousy, envy, greed, sloth and other vices a human being is capable of. In each and every one of us, these two wolves are engaged in a fierce battle.”

The grandson asks, “Which wolf wins?”

The grandfather answered “The one you feed”

Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) the Ruler of the Superconscious and Spiritual Realm

The one culture that made extensive use of symbolism in order to impress or program the mind were the Kamitic (Ancient Egyptians).  In the Kamitic culture, the good wolf is Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) and the bad wolf is named Set (Seth, Set-an or Satan).  In the Kamitic legend, the righteous king Osar is overthrown by his envious youngest brother Set.  Set rules the kingdom with fear but is defeated only because the hero of the story Hru (Heru or Horus in Greek) relies on his Osar.  In other words, just like the Cherokee wolf proverb, Hru feeds or honors Osar instead of giving into Set.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

Set (Seth, Set-an or Satan) the Ruler of our Subconscious and the Physical Realm

I know this may seem strange, but the reason evil was personified was because many non-Western cultures understood evil to be man and woman’s ego, which is the part of our being that is excessively prideful, fights change (lazy) and lives in fear. (See Why is the Devil Winning?) So when a person wants to overcome an addiction, a negative habit, control their anger, etc. and is failing to do so, it is because they haven’t learned how to overcome their own devil. They are fighting their ego.

So, when you looked in my room and saw various statues on an altar, what you were actually seeing was a spiritual play that was designed to impress or program my subconscious and help me to overcome my own devil, my Set. I know it is not what you raised me to believe in or to do but, as I said in the beginning. I am a thinker and after considerable thought I had no choice but to practice the tradition that produces the best physical results.

So yes Mom, I still believe in God, but the reason I stopped going to church is because I have taken responsibility for my own soul and have chosen to cultivate my own spirit, in order to get the things I want out of life, instead of leaving it in the hands of another.

Hope you understand. Sincerely your loving child.





What is Practical Kamitic Spirituality?

18 04 2011

Some people have asked me what do I mean by “Practical Kamitic Spirituality?”  Well, before answering I have to say that it amazes me that whenever someone talks about Kamitic spirituality (or spirituality in general), the first thing that they want to discuss is metaphysics.  They come in talking about astrology, the stars, etc. when I ask one question like, “Do you have any peace?”

I feel like Neo talking to the Source. Like…

“DUDE…WTH are you talking about?” 

“I asked you a simple Yes or No question.

And you gave me a whole search engine of answers.”

I mean, I ain’t mad or anything becuz I use to be just like this equating knowledge/information as wisdom. It took me a “minute” to figure out that true spirituality can’t be learned from a book anyway, because books are nothing but guides. They can point you in the right direction but they can’t make you live maa (truth).

Now don’t get me wrong. Metaphysics, history, science, religion, philosophy, etc. are all dope and I use to study all of these subjects in order to help me make sense of life. The goal of course was that through studying these subjects somehow I would become more enlightened and develop a more intimate relationship with God by merging consciousness with the Divine.  I had dreamed that through these efforts I would be able to accomplish anything because I was finally one with God. Then something remarkable happened.

That’s right. I woke up (hahaha).

Fortunately I had someone who helped me to understand.  That the expansion of the mind and spirit, in order to achieve oneness with the Divine is great, but if the mystical way cannot help you to be a better husband or wife, have a healthier body, pay your bills on time, be a better friend, etc.? Then it is useless.

A practical perspective would be to use spiritual practices and techniques to attain real everyday goals as the ones mentioned earlier. If one for instance, meditated on trying to improve their behavior, finances, etc. If during the practice they happened to merge consciousness then that’s great, but if they don’t. It is still great because it was not purpose of the meditation in the first place.  Enlightenment as you can see from a practical Kamitic perspective is just a pleasant side effect like a bonus.

It is through the practical approach one begins to see that there is a big difference from reading and studying truth versus living truth, hence the maa aankh. When you read and study truth what you are really doing is reading about what someone else thinks.  And, if you search the web, you will find that there are a lot of theories out there, which can be like Mr. Smith.

It is only when you really begin to live TRUTH that you realize that everything that physically exists came into existence from the Spirit.  Therefore, a thought is impressed upon the Spirit causes things to manifest from the spiritual into the physical.  This makes it possible for you to manifest miracles in your life through the Power of God regardless of what one believes and thinks. You can then propose your own theory as to how things work because it is based upon your experience, your TRUTH.

So, when I say Practical Kamitic Spirituality, I mean just that… Something that works! I am talking about knowing that Npu (Anpu/Anubis) is real because you have seen his red/black/white physical manifestation appear to you via a stranger to guide you away from danger. This is one way I knew that God hears our prayers.  This is what I mean by practical, like what has Kamitic spirituality done and continues to do.  You know, I recovered from an illness and part of the reason why this miracle occurred was because I stopped focusing on how I got it and how to overcome it. Instead I focused on what I wanted, which was to be healthy. It took a little time but in time my spirit was convinced that I was never ill. I got a job the same way and money for a project the same way.  Some would call it magic but if I have used the same procedure several times to get similar results. I think we call that science, right?

So, the time has come for us to get real and find the earthly words to express this divine logic.  It is time out for messing around because people are in need of a healing. It is time to let people know that Kamitic spirituality is real and their descendants are spread throughout the diaspora.

So, don’t get boggled down with the mystical theories.  Accept that miracles happen. In fact, believe that miracles happen and when that miracle happens in your life.  Be grateful for it. Accept it and then ask to understand it.

What is the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life?

28 05 2010

Hetepu (Peace) Family.

pyramid sunrise_754472

I have answered this question numerous times. In the beginning, I use to give a real lengthy discourse, but I am older and much wiser, and I hope this short post answers the question for you.  Now, there is a lot that has been written about the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life because the Kamitic/Kemetic people and their society mean a lot of things to different people. The Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life to me is based upon my early experiences.

You see, when I first began learning about Kamit/Kemet, I am not going to lie; I was amazed and just fascinated by all of the metaphysical principles. So much so, that I really tried to apply them to my life. What ended up happening was that I found myself participating in various study groups and attending numerous lectures where I saw the same people all the time. At the same time because my ideas and beliefs were considered so radical from my family and peers, I was somewhat ostracized. Things got a whole lot worse before they got better, but to make a long story short, looking back at all that I experienced I basically was a “metaphysical/spiritual groupie”.

The Aakhut or Right Utchat
(The Solar Eye – corresponds to the factual, logical, and rational information)

For the longest time I couldn’t understand what was going wrong. I mean I read, studied my lessons, and I tried as best I could to eat right, but I just was not growing.  I felt spiritually impotent even though my personal library consisted of over 250 books at such a young age.

Red Deshret Crown

Red Deshret Crown

I didn’t know it at the time but the reason I was not growing was because I just had like Hru, the red Deshret crown. This crown corresponds to TASETT the Red Lands, which symbolizes the physical realm and lower self. It also corresponds to the Right Solar Eye, which is based solely upon what we have learned from our family, friends (and enemies), community, etc. All of our factual information and everything we have learned about our environment, including our beliefs and ideas are associated with this crown.

TASETT - The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

TASETT – The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

Then that’s when I met my padrino (spiritual godfather), an old black Cuban man who taught me a lot of wonderful things and helped me to understand our cultural heritage by introducing me African cosmology. Papa was an Omo Ellegua (Child of the orisha/guardian angel Ellegua), so it made sense that he magically would appear in my life like Shug Avery appeared to Celie in The Color Purple. There were a lot of things that Papa taught me but when he learned that I was reading and studying about the Kamitic/Kemetic tradition and trying to implement it into my life.  Boy he scolded me big time (laugh) and told me that it was silly to try and replicate what was done thousands of years ago, because what the Ancient Egyptians faced back then is completely different from the issues we have today. He told me instead that I should focus upon understanding the concepts and principles because the concepts and principles have a common ancestry. Then shortly after that, like Shug he disappeared only to briefly reappear to check on my progress, similar to the Kamitic/Kemetic Npu, Ellegua guides the dead because I was truly lost.

Npu Statue

At the time I didn’t really understand what Papa meant by what he had said but as the years went by it began to make more and more sense. It was like learning to speak Latin, it is a great language for referencing purposes but no one speaks Latin because it is for the most part a dead-language. Basically, everything that I had read and learned about the Kamitic/Kemetic way was good but it gave me only a one-sided perspective, a real linear, black-white viewpoint (un-holistic). This is why in the Story of Osar, Set is said to have gouged out Hru’s eye, meaning he gave Hru a limited view of things. Well, when I finally began to follow Papa’s advice, that’s when I began to get the white Hedjet crown in regards to spirituality.

White Hedjet Crown

The white Hedjet crown corresponds to KAMTA, the Black Lands, which symbolizes the spiritual realm and our higher self.

KAMTA - The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self.

The spiritual realm is accessible through nonphysical or spiritual means such as by using our intuition represented as the Left Utchat or the Lunar Eye.

The Aabit or Left Utchat
(The Lunar Eye – corresponds to abstract ideas, faith, intuition, ancestors, etc.)

 This is when I got a better view, a holistic view because I was introduced to my ancestors.

It was through my ancestors in regards to this subject matter that I acquired the double white and red Pschent crown,
which symbolizes the union of both the physical and spiritual realities, holistic view and the uniting of the higher and lower selves.

And, it was through my ancestors that I discovered the Maa Aankh, which helped me to realize that life is all about cycles.
We succeed, evolve and grow when we make a complete 360 degree revolution around the spiritual and physical realms like the sun.

So, what is the Kamitic/Kemetic Way of Life About?

It is about surrendering your will to your Higher Self or Spirit within so that it can lead and help you to enjoy life. Period.

Was Jesus Initiated in Kemet?

17 04 2010

HTP (Peace) Fam.

A lot of people would like to know was Jesus a Kamitic initiate. Well, it is not known for sure if he was or wasn’t. I wondered about this when I was growing up, which is part of the reason why I embarked upon this journey so many years ago.  You see, I remember being told when I was younger that the Egyptians were a horrible idol worshipping people that enslaved the “Chosen People” of God. But, I couldn’t for the like of me understand that if the Kamitic people were so evil, why the Daniel, the kid that had the coat of many colors, serve as a vizier? Why did the Joseph flee with Mary and Jesus to Kemet or Kamit, and stay for so long if they were enemies of God?

Then when I got older and continued my research, I wondered why was Moses according to Acts 7:20-22 educated in the ways of the Kamitic people, if the Kamitic people were so evil? It would take years for me to discover that it is because God never cursed or considered the Kamitic people to be evil. This was a gross assumption that someone made and they ran with it. It was another way of trying to promote the twisted theory that the descendants of Ham or Kam were a cursed and wicked people. People swallowed it hook and bait because the bible was interpreted literally and has been used as a world history book.

When it is understood that the bible is all about the genealogical seed of Adam and it is interpreted from that perspective of how anyone can achieve great things. It becomes easy to see why our ancestors in the Americas, kin in Caribbean (Rastafarians) and martyrs like Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad, Haile Selassie, Malcolm X, and Civil Rights leaders like Martin L. King Jr. and others were able to use the bible as a tool against racism and slavery. They understood the ancient African science of conjuring.

When you understand the power of the Spirit in relation to the Soul, Kamit metaphorically and metaphysically speaking becomes a port of entry. We enter Kamit every time we close our eyes, but only a few of the biblical characters actually were initiated into it. Does it make sense now, why Moses and Jesus went to Kamit?

The Truth About Kamitic/Kemetic Spirituality: What about Jesus Part 2

11 04 2010

Hey Fam.

Interesting thing. This just came to me…Acts 17:20 “You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, we want to know what they mean.”

So, I want people to understand that true spirituality from my experience is not anti-religion and for that matter it is not anti-Christian.  Hell.  Since I have embarked upon this journey I have practiced more Christian tenets than I ever wanted to and you know the reason why? Because the true tenets or laws of Christianity aren’t Christian, they are Ancient Egyptian! (Actually they are older than that but, that’s another story).

People get this confused I think because they are so mesmerized by the Kamitic mental science. All of these scholars have come out saying that the Western religions are derived from the Kamitic religion. Then when life puts them in a situation where they have to practice what they preach like “oneness” or forgive (“not forget“) but forgive, they say, “Oh. That’s teaching from the enemy”.  They think that Jesus created this whole thing about forgiveness…umm. If you read the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis) was the first one that taught about forgiveness, she had to forgive Set for all of the evil that he had done.  Forgiveness by the way is a Kamitic concept and principle based upon Maa, which is Kamitic/Kemetic for balance, law, order, justice and righteousness. Jesus simply broke it down in terms that the people he was talking to could understand, but he didn’t invent this concept and principle.  Did the Kamitic people invent it? Probably not, remember their ancestors were from the south. The point is who cares who invented it. What’s important is that we understand it and implement it to improve our lives.

You see, the problem with principles like these is that no one explained why you are supposed to forgive. Many of us are still screwed up by the Civil Rights Movement and can’t believe that our folks didn’t strike back when the dogs, fire hydrant, spit and all sorts of other things were done to them.  I can still hear it, “Couldn’t have been me.” Right?

Well, I can’t explain it because it is something you have to experience…that is true spirituality. It can’t be theorized. When all you do is think about it, all you are doing is intellectualizing it and not applying it, which doesn’t go far.

http://1solalliance.com/instructional-giftsThis is what I mean by throwing out the baby and the bathwater.  If you accept that the origins of the Western religion comes from Kamit/Kemet, then Kamitic/Kemetic spirituality is all about getting the FULL PICTURE, the whole message straight from the horse’s mouth sort of speak. When you have confusion, setbacks, etc. it is because from the Kamitic perspective, you only got one side of the picture, one piece of the pie, one eye (which is why Hru had to flee in the Story of Osar) because Set gouged his eye out. This is illustrated on the maa aankh as being in the red or the RED LANDS, which is TASETT, the land of confusion, conflict and chaos ruled by Set. You have to focus on getting out of the a chaotic, war state because you’re at the Ra moment.

The full picture comes from traveling to the other side, to the fertile lands below, the mysterious land of our ancestors, the spiritual realm within our being, the beautiful BLACK LANDS OF KAMTA. It requires that you become receptive and you move to the Amun Ra moment.  Oh come and go with me, it is so peaceful :).

You know, I had the hardest time trying to make things work for me spiritually because I threw out everything. It wasn’t until I dragged myself to this realization (like Hru) that things began to change and I was reborn.  It wasn’t until I was reminded that the whole purpose of me embarking upon this journey was to learn how the Kamitic/Kemetic people used the same Holy Ghost that Christians talked about to build their society.
An example of what I mean by practicing Kamitic or shall we say pre-Christian tenets, I once upon a time had to bite a hole in my tongue, suck in my gut and swallow that pride in the face of my enemy, and after I did it. Surprisingly, he donated some money to me and my cause, about a $150 worth.  Now, some can call it magic, others can call it a miracle; I call it the Power of God or Rau at work because I didn’t pick and choose what principles I would follow. What would you call it?
