How Come the Lord Did Not Tell You Not to Sin?

3 04 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

I remember one day I was talking to this individual who had converted to Christianity not too long ago. Like most new converts, this individual was very zealous and all they wanted to talk about how “good God has been” to them.  Now, I was happy that this individual had changed their life because I knew them prior to their conversion and they needed religion in a bad way.  But, in a relatively short time after this individual had converted, I noticed that they had become a borderline fanatic.

As I listened to them go on and on and start every sentence with, “The Lord told me…” I noticed that they were dressed differently than usual. Instead of the normal street clothes they were now donning conservative wear. Their hair was processed and their skin was covered in acne. When I asked about their relationship with their spouse, they told me that they were having problems but they were going to fix their problems through the power of prayer.

Then, this individual invited me to attend a church revival with them because there was this guest preacher who was exorcising demons. They had told me that this was the second time this preacher had come to the city and the last time, “the Lord really blessed because this guy was on fire.” This individual also told me that the last time this preacher came they brought another preacher with them who was from the Dominican Republic, who had the power of healing. So, this revival was going to focus primarily on healing and exorcising demons.

Looking at this individual with a ‘gas face (skepticism).’ I told them as politely as I could. “No thank you,” but you know these religious zealots cannot take “No” for an answer and they asked again. Again, I declined, a second and third time, but then they said something that should not have struck a nerve but it did, which was.

“Ok. You just don’t want any healing. God could really bless you if you just attend.”

WTH?  That was it. I did not want to go off but I had no choice and asked, “Why doesn’t the Lord tell you to love yourself by eating nutritious food and stop putting a host of chemicals in your body? Why doesn’t the Lord tell you how to manage your anger and watch what you say so that you can stop offending your spouse and others? Why doesn’t the Lord tell you to respect people regardless if they believe and instead of trying to force people to accept what you believe, that you should instead live by example? I am just curious why the Lord never tells you this.”

Instead of answering my questions, they claimed that they had to leave so that they could get a good seat for church service.

Now, I knew this individual was not going to answer my questions because that is how most religious zealots are. They always claim that the “Lord” told them to do something and that you should follow whatever they say, but when you put personal responsibility back on them. They immediately shift it to the devil and claim that it was “the Lord’s” doing.  It is interesting that “the Lord” never tells these people about vanity, greed, envy, sloth, wrath, lust, and gluttony, which is what most religious individuals (especially in the United States) suffer from.

I mean, isn’t it bizarre that the Lord speaks to these people and gives them all sorts of insight but never says, “Thou Shalt Not Get Cosmetic Surgery. Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Husband or Wife. Thou Shalt Not… (You get the point).”

Isn’t it interesting that the Lord talks to these people but never tells them how to avoid being overtaken by vanity, greed, envy, sloth, wrath, lust, and gluttony.  Better yet, how is it that these people are able to hear messages from the Lord telling them to do “his Will” in spreading the gospel, but not hear the Lord telling them not to offend others, have extramarital affairs, steal money, use drugs, etc.?

I propose that it was never the Lord talking to these people in the first place. If you look closely you will see that most of the religious leaders and most of the adherents who follow in their footsteps, are afflicted by three or more of the Seven Deadly Sins (vanity, greed, envy, sloth, wrath, lust, and gluttony).  The reason most adherents are not taught about the seven deadly sins is because they are not bible based.  In fact, the concept is said to be created by Evagrius of Pont, an Egyptian monk around 300AD. Evagrius compiled the list as a the “evil thoughts” that plague humanity, which circulated throughout Christendom. Although the Church denounced the sins and branded Evagrius a heretic, it was Dante’s Divine Comedy, which popular the sins as major transgressions against God that required the sinner confess and ask for repentance.

Now, the reason the Seven Deadly Sins were rejected was because it put a monkey wrench in the whole salvation scheme that claimed that Jesus died and washed away one’s sin.  According to theory, if Jesus died and washed away one’s sin, then the Seven Deadly Sin should not exist. If these concepts were allowed to flourish, salvation would have been put back in the hands of the individual.  The reason the Church banned the Seven Deadly Sins was because they could not profit from it. By banning this list and declaring Evagrius a heretic, the Church (and future Church leaders) could always claim that they are the mouthpiece of God.

Family. God exists within you and God is not going to give someone a message about you without telling you about it. This reminds me of a funny story.  My brother had helped this lady out one time by giving her a ride home from church, helping to carry things into her house, etc. Just to be nice. Apparently, this lady misinterpreted his kind gestures and told my brother, “The Lord said that you were going to be my husband.” To which, my brother replied, “Well, the Lord did not mention that to me” and that was the last time he talked to her. (Laugh).

Like I said, God exists within you and God is not going to give someone a message about you without telling you about it. This whole notion that the Lord is talking to people, is a manipulation and perversion of a metaphysical concept. The Lord talks to all of us but you need to know which Lord is talking to you.

Here are some more people who claimed that the Lord told them to do “His Will.”

By the way, should I mention that the “Lord” according to these religious zealots claimed to have told them to bomb churches.  This same “Lord” in history also told similar people to massacre the Amerindians and enslave the Africans because they did not worship Jesus.  The interesting thing is that even after they converted to Christianity, the “Lord” told them to continue to persecute the Native Americans and Black Americans. Oh, I forgot to mention that the “Lord” also told these men in Europe and the Americas to murder women and children because they were witches.

The “Lord” that these people worship is very violent and when he cannot get his way. He pouts, has a temper-tantrum and destroys whatever is in his midst because the Lord that most of these people are talking about is Satan. What the monk Evagrius was trying to convey to his ignorant Christian brethren is that we have two Lords: God and the devil, and they both exist within. The Seven Deadly Sins are the “evil thoughts” that lead to Satan.

No. Satan worshipers are not black robed people who meet on a Saturday night at 12 o’clock midnight and chant or read the bible verses backwards. Then, they disrobe and have a massive orgy and do all sorts of drugs. Nope, that’s the Greeks and Hollywood has been fascinated by this image because it models itself after the Greek city Athens, but these are real Satanic worshipers. The word Satan means Adversary and it was derived from the Kemetic Set-an, which refers to one’s lower self or ego. Thus, true Satan worshipers are worshipers of their Ego.    True salvation comes from self-control and self-discipline, and if these people would have listened to traditional African healers, priests and priestess. They would have explained to them that they have been worshiping the devil all along. This is the reason there is so much evil in the world and most of it is being committed by so-called God fearing individuals.

The real Lord that most of these people are worshiping is the Lord of Chaos, known in the Kemetic tradition as Set.  According to Kemetic legend, Set was so wild and uncontrollable that in order for Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus) to defeat him, Hru had to castrate him.  Does it now make sense why our society has literally gone to hell in a gasoline basket with dynamite? Can you see how most of these people who are claiming that the Lord is talking to them are really listening to Set based upon their egotistical, prideful, selfish, lustful, vengeful, gluttonous, greedy and narcissistic behavior? Yes, it is Set who is ruling the world but there is nothing to fear. Unlike the religious fanatics who are bracing for the end of the world because they believe the devil is some physical impish red man running around with a pitchfork challenging God, so they believe they are helpless.

We know that the true devil is our lower self and the way to stop the devil is to simply deny him power. In other words, stop listening and following your ego and learn to follow your Higher Self.  This is what the battle between battle between Hru and Set is all about. Stop giving into your Set (Ego)! Fight him! Stop worshiping Jesus and BE JESUS by telling Set,

“Get ye behind me Set-an!” 

The obvious question is how do you know when it is the Lord (your Higher Self) speaking and not the Lord of Chaos? Well, when Set is talking to you, the Lord of Chaos usually is going to cater to your anxieties, fears, worries and guilt.  Think about that. Everything that you are afraid of, worried about, get anxious about, etc., this is what the devil preys upon.  In fact, every time you try to do what is Right, it is Set who whispers in your ear to do what is Easy by robbing, stealing, cheating, manipulating, exploiting, abusing and taking advantage of others emotionally, financially, physically, sexually, etc.  Proof of this can be seen in all of the cases of the corrupted public and religious official. Not only that Family. Your Set does not want you to embrace your divinity. Your Set wants you to believe you are powerless and that God has abandon you. Your Set preys upon using your fears.

Thankfully, we have a Higher Self or Osar.  When your Higher Self or Osar tells you to do something.  It is usually what you do not want to do but is the Right thing to do.  Your Higher Self or Osar encourages you to do what is Right instead of what is Easy. The cool thing about following your Osar is that the more you listen to your Higher Self, the louder this voice becomes and the stronger you become spiritually. To the point that no one or no thing will be able to sway and take advantage of you ever again. Not only that, you can generate your own prosperity and blessings instead of falling for these scams.

Understand. The true power of God is within and to use it requires self-control and self-discipline. If something or someone tells you differently, note that this is not Osar or the Lord speaking.  it is Set.

Don’t Forget the Real Reason for the Easter Season

28 03 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Good Friday and Easter are right around the corner. What’s funny about this season is that so-called spiritual people talk about the pagan roots of Easter mentioning how eggs and the cute little bunnies correspond to pagan deities.  But they fail to see the real pagan aspect of this holiday, so let me explain.

Have you ever wondered why the Christian holiday Easter changes dates?  According to the early Christian writers, the death and resurrection of their savior occurred around the Jewish Passover, which is celebrated on the first full moon following the Spring Equinox.  That means “Good” Friday Jesus died and Sunday rose again.

Now, since we’re not pagan and do not believe in worshiping people (or things) who allegedly died for our sins, but understanding the spiritual significance of celestial events. During Spring Equinox, the rays of the sun shine on the earth’s equator making the days and night almost equal.  However, we see Spring Equinox as the return of life, light and warmth from the dark and cold winter. During this time, the days start to become longer and warmer and the nights shorter as we move towards Summer.  The grass begins to grow, trees begin to bud, the birds are chirping, etc. because Spring or Fruitfulness is in the air, hence the reason pre-Christians used rabbits and eggs to symbolize the return of life and festivity from the dreary and cold winter.

Spring or Fertility signifies the return of Life from a presumably metaphorical death.

Metaphorically speaking, we are talking about the Superconscious.

Remember, the Superconscious is the deep part of our being that Ralph Emerson called the oversoul and claimed that all of our power comes from. Napoleon Hill called it the Infinite Intelligence, and our Kemetic ancestors called it the BA.  The Superconscous is the basis of all western religious beliefs but due to a lack of metaphysical understanding, spiritual concepts were interpreted literally. When Jesus speaks of his Father in Heaven, he is not referring to a Deity but his Superconscious in the deepest part of our being.  Jesus even teaches his disciples to talk to their Superconscious by saying, “Our Father who art in Heaven…”

From the Kemetic perspective, Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris) is the Lord of the Underworld, the spirit of fertility (symbolized by his green features) and the personification of our Superconscious.  Meaning Osar symbolizes the hidden force responsible for rebirth.  The return of Spring signifies Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus) defeating Set and restoring the throne of Osar or the return of fertility but spiritually speaking. This celestial event is a reminder that to overcome our Set (Ego and destructive subconscious habits), we must consciously (symbolized as Hru) connect with our Osar (Superconscious). Remember, according to the Story of Osar, Hru fought Set and was unable to defeat his more experienced adversary at war, until he consciously took a back seat and allowed Osar to take over. In other words, salvation is not given. The only one who can save us is US.

Remember, we did not incarnate to this planet just to be a child who needs to be constantly saved from everything. We came here to develop our divine power so that we can save ourselves.  We are Children of the Most High and eventually we have to grow up because we incarnated here to be a god and goddess. So, leave the “saving” for the true pagans who want to worship men because they are afraid to be a god and goddess.

Hru Osar and Set

It is great to purchase new things for children, but remember the real reason for the Easter season and Celebrate that you Know about Osar!





What Does It Really Mean to be a God on Earth?

21 03 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know, the other day I was watching the 1984 comedy Ghostbusters on Netflix, about three parapsychology professors who created a business removing ghosts.  In the climax of the movie, the Ghostbusters are trying to defeat the main antagonist Zuul, who is said to be a demigod of destruction and chaos. Before Zuul shoots lightning out at the Ghostbusters, Zuul asks “Are you a god?”  to which one of the Ghostbusters (Ray) responds “No.” Immediately afterwards, Zuul sends bolts of lightning to the Ghostbusters nearly pushing them off the ledge of the skyscraper.  Thus, prompting Winston to say, “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god. You say Yes!”

Aside from the fact that it was Winston (of all people) who tells Ray to tell a demigod that he is something that he is not, this made me wonder why didn’t Ray answer that he was a god. Then, it came to me that it was because in Christianity (and Islam) we are taught that whenever we are in a bind. To call out to God for help because we are God’s humble and pitiful creatures that need saving.

Where did this idea that human beings are lowly creatures that need saving come from? Well, remember the biblical story about the Children of Israel and how they fled Egypt. If you grew up in the west, you have read and heard this story numerous times.  We are captivated by the Exodus story because the Children of Israel are depicted as the underdog against the mighty Egyptian army. We are told according to biblical accounts that the Children of Israel cried out to God to save them and the Lord parted the Red Sea, thus allowing the Children of Israel to pass and drowning the Egyptian army.

Now, never mind the fact that the Exodus story is a complete fabrication because there is no historical proof that the Kemetic people had slaves, no archaeological evidence that slave labor existed or was used to build edifices, and there was no massive exodus. In fact, as I mentioned in Why God Does Not Answer Your Prayers, the word pharaoh is not a title given to the Egyptian rulers, but was the name of one of foreign dictators when the Hyskos ruled Kemet. In other words, he was not even Kemetic but Semitic meaning this was a Semitic king who was being harsh to other Semitic people.

But, the real surprise is that according to Jewish writers this is not a true account of how the Exodus story occurred. According to Jewish scholars (particularly Kabbalist) when the Children of Israel stood before the Red Sea with the encroaching army on their heels, they cried out to God to save them, and God replied, “Why are you calling me?”

In other words, God was telling the Children of Israel, “You are made in my image, so use your divine powers to get out of the mess you are in.” And, through the Children of Israel’s power, they parted the Red Sea, not God.

Again, the story is completely fictional and it was created to teach very valuable lessons to young Jewish children who were feeling pitied. But, imagine if you were taught like Jewish children, that God does not save you but God has empowered you to save yourself? Imagine if you were taught that you can do whatever is humanly possible because you were made in the image of God? Imagine if you were taught that by working together with your own people you can create miracles; how different your life would be?  Could you imagine the impact this truth would have upon your life?

Yes, it would have been astronomical and this is why we need to understand that spirituality is psychological.  The main reason many of us are not able to accomplish our goals in life is because we have been taught to believe that our savior exists outside of us.  In other words, we have been taught to be totally dependent upon others outside of us even if they do not share our best interests because we are not worthy.

Therefore, correct this flaw by ridding yourself of this destructive belief about your divinity. Instead of asking for God (and others) to pity you, remind yourself that you are an exceptional human being made in the image of the Divine. In other words, remind yourself that you are Child of Osar, a Hru (hero, Hrw, Heru, Horus). The only one who can save you is you by aligning yourself with your Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris, or Higher Self within).

When you align yourself with your Osar, all types of new ideas, thoughts, miracles, etc. occur because remember, your Osar (Higher Self is your Superconscious). If you will recall, this is the part of our being that is responsible for making magick and miracles occur according to all the great inventors, scientists, mathematicians, etc., which our Kemetic ancestors created an elaborate culture based upon.

Since most of us are creatures of habit, meaning we are strongly influenced by the subconscious (lower self) part of our being, it is best to surround our self with images that remind us of our divinity. This will help us because the problem that most of us have about our divinity is not that do not know we are made in the image of God.  It is that when we get in a pinch, we forget we were created to be gods and goddesses.  When we have obstacles and problems that force us to tap into our divine power, this is the setting sun moment illustrated on the Maa Aankh as the Ra Atum moment and on the Kongo dikenga (or Kongo Cross) as Luvemba.  It indicates that we are at a pivotal moment in our life where the dying of the old and rebirth of the new occurs.

In other words, the only way to be reborn is to face your fears but if you keep crying for someone (or some thing) to save you as Christian storytellers have suggested. We will never be truly saved or delivered.  The only way we can be saved is by always keeping in mind that we are made in the image of the Divine, which means God will always have your back.

What it means to be a god or goddess on earth is someone who has no fear and invokes the power of God within to change situations at will.  They are proactive, not reactive and en route to becoming immortal.

Therefore, instead of crying out to God (and others) to save us, it is best to repeat “There is no one coming to save you Hru because God sent you.”

What if A Black Hole is Within You?

9 03 2018

Did you know that a black hole is is a very mysterious phenomenon that exists in the universe. Although some would think that the term black signifies that it is empty space. The blackness of a black hole refers to the great amount of matter packed into a very small area.

In other words, think of a star like the Sun squeezed into a sphere whose diameter is about the size of Detroit, Michigan. The result is a very powerful gravitational force that not even light can escape.

In fact, a black hole is the most powerful phenomenon that exists in the universe, which leads one to believe that when the ancient philosophers were talking about God, maybe they were speaking about a Black Hole.

When biblical writers wrote that God said, “Let us make man in our own image.” Could it be that the forces of the Black Hole were speaking about creating your Superconscious or Higher Self personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek)?

There is only one way to find out. Tap into your Godliness and discover God for yourself.

 





Why is the Devil Winning?

25 07 2014

Hetep (Peace) Family.

You know, part of the reason why it is so difficult for so many of us to move on with our lives and take control of our future is because we are stuck in the past. We are constantly spending time going over why something happened or it occurred. The lower division of our spirit called in Kamta the sahu (or the subconscious part of our being) makes us want to know why a thing occurred. It forces us to seek a “logical” explanation, so that it will not occur again.  It is sort of like the first time we touched something hot. It was our sahu that remembers the pain and reminds us so that we do not burn ourselves again.

But, there are something that can’t be explained by logic alone. For instance, a lot of people still ask the question why were some of the Native Americans in the Caribbean, North and South America defeated the way they were? Why did slavery occur? Really, because we are a spiritual minded people even when we don’t want to be, what we really want to know is why did God allow genocide and slavery to occur? In fact, let’s go a little bit deeper, why does God allow evil to exist? I mean really, why does God allow terrorists to bomb churches with four little girls or bomb mosques and other religious sites?

Many of us have struggled with these questions for a while now and the traditional means has not provided a good explanation. In fact, no matter how much information we learn, nothing seems to give us solace so that it will never occur again.

osar

Well, I have found that the best way to deal with issues in our past where a logical explanation is not sufficient is to lean upon the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek) for understanding and peace of mind.  In the Story, after Ra the grandfather of all things gives Osar the enlightenment he wanted to build a peaceful nation, and after Osar successfully unifies his people and builds a prosperous civilization. He is brutally murdered by his brother Set who usurps the throne.  (Osar by the way is associated with our ba or higher self, which is the explanation as to how and why Osar built a prosperous civilization. Set on the other hand, is associated with our sahu. This is the reason our past haunts us because it is Set who knows the weaknesses of our mind likes to torment us with it. Keep this in mind because we will come back to it shortly.)

Hru

Now, Hru (Heru or Horus in Greek), the hero of the story engages his evil uncle Set on the battlefield, but his victories are not consistent and most of them end in stalemates. In one epic battle, Set manages to get close enough to our hero and is able to gouge out his eye.  Hru I imagine, battered, blinded in one eye and hard to see out of the other, flees and finds his father’s old vizier Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti or Thoth).  Through magical means Djahuti repairs Hru’s eye perfectly.  As a result, today people from all walks of life happily adorn their bodies and themselves with this Eye of Hru because they understand that it is a symbol of protection but, why and how?

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

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

Well, the magic and the power of the Eye of Hru (also called the Left Eye of Hru) is based upon how we interpret the first parts of the Story. For one we have to understand that the Story is alluding to the concept that Hru only one eye or one perspective, which was based solely upon what he could physically see. This corresponds to the Eye of Ra, hence logic.

The fact that Ra, in this case, symbolizes the Creator and is Osar’s and Set’s grandfather could mean the farther one gets away from the Light or the Source, the easier it becomes to lose your way.  Another point that I want to bring out is that because Ra is the grandfather of both Osar and Set, means that the Creator is not bias and doesn’t see the world as we do in black and white, right and left, correct and incorrect. It is all relative to the Creator because to the Divine they are all two sides of the same coin. A while ago, it was put to me this way, that the same life energy that fills your lungs also fills the lungs of our enemies, which means the Divine stays out of the whole matter. One can say that the Divine sees the fight between Osar and Set as sibling rivalry. Think about that the next time you wonder why God allows certain injustices to occur, that the Divine has no say so in the matter.

scale-of-justice

This is because from a spiritual perspective, both good and evil are needed to justify the other’s existence, hence the whole good and evil dichotomy is actually a cycle where one experiences highs and lows. Note this is why Osar sought Ra in the first place because his people were wild and out (the low). Then Osar introduced to them the Maa and they became civilized (the high). Next, Set usurps the throne and forces the people back into a world of ignorance (another low). I am highlighting this part so that you can reflect back on your life and see the high and low periods in your life.  Note when you are in the highs or at the low points, because this is you life pattern. For instance, I have noticed that I usually get a lot of material blessings around February and March, which is my annual zenith. I can’t explain it, I just know that that is when one of them usually occurs and I have a second one as well. It is like I get a sudden burst of blessings then they wane like the waning moon. So chart your annual cycle. You can also chant your monthly, weekly and daily cycles as well. The monthly cycles are relatively easy because this is when most of us get a paycheck. Notice your energy level. Take note if things are exciting or chaotic because of bills. As with the weekly cycle, note how your energy is come Monday. Do you really feel blue on this Moon-day or is it because everyone say you do? Does Wednesday feel like a hump day, can you really see Npu at the crossroad of the week? Are you really looking forward to Nebhet’s Friday, and if so why? Really take a look and see how your energy level is during the day, week, month and year. See how it cycles or oscillates like a serpent or sin and cosine wave.

sincos

Now, if you have completed the above exercises, you will be able to really appreciate our hero in the Story. Part of the reason Hru exists is to escape that high and low energy cycle from above. In esoteric circles this is called transcending your horoscope.  Note using money as an example, we all love when we get some money, but don’t you hate when you don’t have enough money or the money you need to get the things that you want? Of course, because we all hate the lows. Wouldn’t it be great to not have any lows at all? I mean for instance, wouldn’t it be great to have the money you want to take care of your needs all year around and not have to live paycheck to paycheck? Sure it does.

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

Have you ever asked yourself why you have these lows? I means why is it so difficult for you to save money or keep enough money so that you don’t live paycheck to paycheck?  Have you ever noticed that when you try to save money there is a part of you that fights your decision and wants you to spend all of your money on the things you want? Notice also that every time you try to save your money, something always comes up unexpected? This is where Djahuti comes into the Story and reveals to Hru (by repairing his eye) that our universe was built upon the foundation of Maa.

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Maa is Divine Balance, Order, Justice and the Absolute Truth.

This means nothing unexpected happens. It might not have been planned but nothing happens by chance.  That’s right. There is no such thing as coincidences in the traditional African worldview. Everything is based upon cause and effect regardless if you can see or understand it or not. The trick of Set is to convince us that our universe has no order and that everything is based upon what we physically see, but this is an illusion.  This is the reason Set rules over the desert region of  TASETT on the Maa Aankh, which is full of mirages or explained in the Christian lore as the lord of the earth and flesh.  Another interesting point is that the Right Eye of Ra corresponding to Ra moment hovering over TASETT, also represents logical thinking. Meaning, this is the reason logically we are not able to defeat our enemy because we are relying upon the same resources that our enemy uses, who is older and more powerful.) This is why in order to see past the illusion, we must remember that according to the Maa Aankh and other African cosmologies, that the physical emerged out of the spiritual, hence it is our thoughts, ideas, etc. that shape our physical reality.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

That’s correct. Everything that you physically see is basically the end product, the end or final result whose origins exist in the unknown, invisible, spiritual realm called KAMTA. Set would have us to believe that grasses, plants and trees just sprout of nowhere, thanks to the Maa and Djahuti the master of science, we know that all plant growth comes from a seed. This means there is a hidden reality beyond our physical reality that makes the things that we see manifest themselves physically. Hence, Hru’s eye is repaired.

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

As you know, once Hru’s eye was repaired he defeated Set on the battlefield.  No fuss. No muss, because now he has a holistic view, hence Two Eyes are better One.

I say all that to say that evil exists to show us our weaknesses, so that we can overcome them – that is the impurities within our soul.  As to why does God allow evil to exist. The hard truth for many of us to swallow is that God has no say so in the matter because the Divine gave us all free will through Hru.  This is the reason God will never physically appear before you and physically take a cigarette out of our hand because it is harmful to your body.  Nor, will the Divine take a bottle of poison out of our hands and prevent you from ingesting it. If the Divine saved us from our own unwise decisions all the time, how would we ever learn and take responsibility for our own life? How would we know how to manipulate fire to cook our food, warm our homes, fend off invaders, etc. if we never got burned?

seth

Set the Lord of Chaos, Confusion and Disorganization brings about losses to show the limitation of the physical realm or TASETT and the problem with relying solely upon what we see, which is represented by the Ra moment (Midday Sun – Life) falling and becoming Ra Atum (Setting Sun – Death, our spiritual death or demise) on the Maa Aankh(see above).

This is why I tell people all of the time, “God is not going to save you. The Divine created you Hru!”

Hru Osar and Set

Hru Osar and Set

Without Set, many of us would never seek the Divine from within and learn to overcome our own shortcomings. It is only when we get really tired of Set kicking our butt from one place to the next (in the physical realm) that we will flee to Djahuti (a wise elder, a master in the field, an oracle, etc.) for some wisdom, so that we can learn how to overcome our personal enemy using both physical and spiritual means. Once you learn how to overcome your enemy, like all lessons in life, you will never be haunted again by the past.





Why Study the Maa Aankh?

28 09 2013

Hetepu (Peace) Family,

Here recently, the second edition of the Maa Aankh Volume I was released and although I wrote it.  While I was rereading it, it was amazing to me all that I had experienced, and what I survived that made me who I am today. It makes me grateful to say that I may not be where I want to be today, but I am glad that I am not where I use to be yesterday.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

Maa Aankh with Utchat

As I said before, while I was rereading it, I came across the Maa Aankh cosmogram and was taken aback by how I was blessed to make this discovery. I realized it then, but I realize it even more so today that it was truly divine inspiration that led me to discover the Maa Aankh. This is because like most people attracted to the Kamitic (Kemetic or Ancient Egyptian) sciences. The very mention of ancient Egypt brought to my mind the great pyramids, the sphinx and a host of other magnificent finds because Kamit (Kemet) is full of mystery and wonder.  So much so, that if one is not careful it is very easy to find oneself lost amongst all of the Kamitic (Kemetic mysteries) riddles that continue to exist today, thereby forgetting that the purpose of history is not just to quote facts, but also to retrieve the spiritual techniques used that made their civilization great.   Fortunately, I had several guides or “hidden hands” that led me through her maze and kept my eyes on the prize, which was to understand that the Kamitic (Kemetic) civilization stood for over 3,000 years and consisted of a series of relatively unstable periods followed by stable kingdoms, because of the Maa.

What is the Maa?

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa translates to balance, harmony, holistic, law, righteousness, and truth. It was personified as a women wearing a single ostrich feathered headdress who was called Ma’at or Maat, which meant that the Maa is flexible, practical and concerned mostly with ethics and morals.  Essentially, what it means is that everything that the Creator created is perfect because the Creator is Perfect. Therefore, everything that happens happens for a reason because everything is interdependent upon one another. We see this clearly in our ecosystem and in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the land we live off of and so on.  This means that if everything that the Creator created is perfect in the eyes of the Creator. Then, each and every one of us was created to be perfect and it is our destiny to be happy, fulfilled and to have peace.  This essentially is what Maa is all about, perfect balance, perfect harmony, etc.

Of course the question that comes to mind is “Why don’t we have a perfect life now?”

When we look at the news, we see that our society is literally plagued with all sorts of atrocities and it appears to be getting worse. It makes one question if the Creator exist why would the Creator allow so much pain and suffering to exist.

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.

According to the ancient Kamitic philosophers, the reason so many of us are not happy, fulfilled and at peace is because we live in a Cause and Effect world, but most of us are only aware of the physical effect aspect of reality.  In other words, we know that our physical world has physical laws like gravity, which makes it possible for fruit to fall off a tree. What most of us aren’t aware of are the spiritual laws that created the tree, the fruit and made it possible for the fruit to fall in the first place. This physical reality that most of us are aware of has many names but the ancient Kamitic philosophers called this reality TASETT, while the spiritual reality is referred to as KAMTA.

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.

So, in order to have a perfect life, we can’t wait for a savior to give it to us.  We have to master the spiritual laws ourselves, which are more powerful than the physical laws governing our world. We simply have to take responsibility for our own salvation.


Why Study the Maa Aankh?

What doe the Maa Aankh have to do with all of this and why should we study it? It is because the Kamitic philosopher left teachings stating that when the Creator created the universe.  The first act was to bring into existence the Rau – the Holy Spirit and Power of the Divine, which is the source of eternal joy, peace, fulfillment, etc.  Afterwards, the Maa was the first principle that was created, which brought duality into our world such as positive and negative, fire and water, aggressive and passive energies, masculine and feminine, light and dark, also called Shu and Tefnut, which are similar to the Chinese Yang and Yin.  It is because of these two forces (Shu and Tefnut), nothing can exist by itself because it would be chaotic and destructive. For example, too much fire metaphorically would be like a wildfire or an erupting volcano, while too much water is like a flood or hurricane. Both forces are needed and are interdependent upon one another, in order balance to exist or for there to be Maa. This means that everything that the Creator created is Perfect because it has within itself a dual nature, which is Maa.

Since we were created from a Perfect Creator, we therefore have two natures as well.  The first nature that most of us are aware of was created to help us to physically survive. It looks out for us, number one, numero uno, the Me and it is what we call our ego, which the Kamitic philosophers personified and called Set (the Kamitic devil that later became Set-an or Satan).  Although our Set helps us to physically survive, Set also prevents us from sharing and working well with others, because he is selfish, egotistical, stuck in the past and only concerned with the physical world. Set is the one that prevents us from tapping in the Divine Power of God or the Rau. He is the one that keeps our mind closed and keeps us from growing not only spiritually, but emotionally, mentally, financially, etc. because he only sees one part of the picture, the physical side of reality, hence the realm TASETT.

Our second nature is what many refer to as our higher self and it gives us the desire to help others, share and love one another, which is why the Kamitic philosophers called it Osar (Asar, Ausar or Greek Osiris).  Our Osar connects us to the Rau because he is concerned with the hidden spiritual reality, which is why the Kamitic philosophers named the spiritual reality KAMTA.

Osar of KAMTA (from Maa Ankh 2)

Osar of KAMTA (from Maa Ankh 2)

So, the purpose of studying the Maa Aankh is that it simplify matters by helping us to see beyond the illusions, by revealing that our worst enemy and greatest ally lies within.  This means that the only one stopping you from progressing, stopping you from receiving a blessing, stopping you from healing your body, stopping your progress is ourself or rather your Set (ego) because you are stubbornly refuse to listen to your inner awareness, your Osar.  The Maa Aankh therefore was discovered in order to  help us to become more like Osar, that is transition from being a slave of Set to being led by Osar, because the more we become like Osar. The more we master the spiritual laws and are able to manifest the fullness of the Rau in our life.

CanAnyone Study the Maa Aankh?

Everyone, needs the wisdom of the ancients, which is why when Kamit existed, it played host to a number of Greek philosophers, but just like in ancient times. There are some people today who only want to discuss the intellectual aspects of the Kamitic science and go about their business by not applying it all, while there are others that prefer not to take any responsibility for their life and instead blame their shortcomings on those surrounding them. The Maa Aankh is not meant for these individuals because it was created using Kamitic philosophy and the Kongo Cross, which makes it a living diagram.  Hence, something not meant to be taken lightly.

If however you are tired of the direction your life is going and you are ready to make a serious change in your life.  The Kamitic sciences will greatly improve your life, but know this. The road will not always be easy.  There are times when you really wish you could take the blue pill that was offered to Neo in the Matrix, and wish everything would just go away, because the road to transformation is not an easy path. In the end, though you are grateful that you stuck in there because you have matured and you find that the things that brought you down, don’t do so anymore.  You are more peaceful and happier because now you are living Maa.

Hope this helps.





Born Again For Real – The Purpose of Kemeticism

4 07 2013

Hetepu (Peace) Family. The other day I was talking to my former supervisor who is very religious and she was just telling me all about the Holy Spirit. I thought it was interesting for one because even though she knows I don’t believe everything she believes. She still identified me according to the way I live my life as being “Born Again,” which is why I titled this post this way.  But, all while she was talking I was just wondering if she even knew where this came from.  Then I got to thinking about how churches are so different now.

Musical Greats inspired by the Church

Musical Greats inspired by the Church

Let me explain real quick. Remember the music of the Motown era, Staxx and so on? Remember when those singers like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes (sorry to all music purist, I know I am jumping around…I WAS NOT born during that era, please forgive me 🙂 )  and all of them talked about their beginning or how they developed their musical talents? Do you remember what they all would say? That’s right the Church. They all gave the same answer, that they honed their singing, musical, and oratory skills in the Church. Now, if we skip to contemporary times people will not say the same thing. The response is somewhat so-so but you will hear most comment on how they came from the “secular” world and brought their talent to the Church.  Interesting isn’t it?

I mean when did the Church start getting its inspiration from the Streets? It was when they loss their Anointing or the Spirit of God, and once they loss this connection, the ability to be Spirit-led wasn’t far behind.

You see, the whole Spirit-led phenomenon that most Churches talk about today was supposed to be due to following the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.  The evidence that one is filled with the Holy Ghost is by speaking-in-tongues based upon the Day of Pentecost.  If you ask most churchgoers where this movement began, they will tell you that it all started at the Azusa Street Revival, which was started by William J. Seymour.

What they don’t tell you is that Seymour was a student of Charles Parham and when he came upon the revival he denied it and denounced the movement as being taken over by hypnotists, spiritualists and fortunetellers. (see A Catechism of Christian Doctrine…No. 3, Supplemented by Rev. Thomas L. Kinkead. Bezinger Brother, 1921 pg. 261-262). In fact, Parham’s racial views about African Americans and Mexican Americans involvement in the Pentecostal Movement is what led to the development of separate Pentecostal organizations in the United States.

Obviously, the reason most Black scholars and theologians, as well as non-Black theologians refuse to say anything about this is because they don’t want anyone to know about their African shamanistic roots and spiritualistic origins. But, the failure to acknowledge and address the African element is the reason so many people in the church are experiencing such a disconnect from the Spirit of God. It is all because the practice of speaking-in-tongues as evidence that one has the gift of the Holy Ghost is a form of spirit possession, particularly African trance possession.

Afro-Brazilian Trance Possession

Afro-Brazilian Trance Possession

This practiced survived in the Untied States because Spiritualism encouraged it by proving that there is life after death and how one could speak to spirits, thus verifying Native American and African beliefs in the otherworld.  If it had not been for Spiritualism – particularly Kardec Spiritualism – most of the indigenous practices of Native Americans and Africans throughout the Americas (Caribbean and Latin America) would have become extinct.

So, the practice of speaking in tongues or possession survived, along with other African practices such as prophesizing and shouting, which are all Spirit-led because of Spiritualism. What does this have to do with losing connection to the Spirit of God, you ask? It means that the original beliefs and practices go beyond the Azusa Street Revival. The actual theology comes from Africa.

Being led by the Spirit, as any African Traditional and African Diaspora practitioner will tell you is great, but you have to verify what the Spirit is saying is true, and this is why the loss has occurred. There is no verification process, which means any spirit can come in and tell a person to do something. The older people in the church had ways of discerning if what the spirit was telling them was true or not (called divination), but for reasons “unknown”. Their ways were regarded as being superstitious and backwards practices from Africa, which is the reason it was not taught.

Coliseums & Mega Churches

Coliseums & Mega Churches

As is the case all throughout the world, when two cultures encounters each other, the dominant culture takes from the other elements, which it sees as being beneficial and profitable to its own, while discarding the rest.  So, now when you turn on the radio or watch TV you see all sorts of preachers talking about the Holy Ghost and being led by the Holy Spirit. You will hear all sorts of singers talking about how great the Holy Spirit is and how it is the most beautiful thing in the world. All while these peoples’ lives are in shambles, they have poor nutrition, they have low self-esteem, poor relationships, and impoverished communities but yet the Holy Spirit is wonderful.

Clearly, something is missing and that something is the African element, which the “powers that be” deemed as being superstitious and backwards.  It is because most churches do not have this element, which is the basis of the Azusa Street Revival. The reason so many people in the church have simply sold out. With no anointing or no-Spirit you got to find ways to entertain the masses. While it seems a little barbaric to create great coliseums and see gladiators physically kill each other.  If you look at most mega churches, they do resemble coliseums and they get on stage and allow their egos to have a slugfest instead. I am not here to judge anyone but really. If all of these people really had the Spirit of God within them some of the issues that exist in our society would cease, so why haven’t they? Clearly, something is wrong.

Please understand my post is not to ridicule the church. I have become a very objective individual, so I can and will listen to anyone because Absolute Truth is Absolute Truth regardless of whose mouth it comes out of.  I enjoy listening to some preachers when it is the Spirit sermonizing and not the speaker’s ego.  The purpose of this post is get you to understand that the original idea of what it means to be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost.  Didn’t come from Azusa Street but from Africans and early African Americans who wanted to be “saved” and delivered from slavery.  American Churches watered down the original purpose and in a minute we will see why.

You see, the Africans and early African Americans relying upon remnants from Africa combined with Christianity created the Spirit-led tradition that people are so happy to talk about today.  They also created a coded language that allowed them discern if what the Spirit was telling them was true or not, unlike people nowadays who just want to experience the Spirit or feel good and do nothing with it. Therefore, if you want to be truly reborn, you need to understand that it is not about listening to the Spirit. You have to learn to trust the Spirit and follow the Spirit’s guidance.  Once you do this, you will realize after you have verified that what the Spirit is telling is true. That the reason you speak-in-tongues is because all of those tongues are the ancestors who reside in the unseen spirit world.

But not every dead person is an ancestor. Some of the dead were bad people in life and they continue to be bad people in the afterlife. This is why the elders had to find a way to discern what the Spirit was saying is true.  Most of our elders did this through bibliomancy, the art of divining with a book. Although any book can be used, the book most of our elders used was the Christian bible. Are you beginning to see why it was regarded as superstitious?

Unfortunately, most of the original theology that the elders relied upon was lost because Jesus from the African and early African American perspective was seen as being a patriarchal ancestor.  Fortunately, this early African American concept was not new. It was practiced in Kamit/Kemet (Ancient Egypt) some 3,000 years ago and the patriarchal ancestor was Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek).

This is the whole reason behind the heroic Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus in Greek) fighting his evil uncle in order to reclaim his ancestor’s crown, the white crown of Kamit called the Hedjet or Crown of Osar.

So, how do you know when you have been reborn.  You will know when you are truly reborn because your Osar (the patriarch of your lineage) gives you self-pride. When you have pride in yourself, you will live a better life because your Osar will help you not to do it. Your Osar will tell you that certain things are harmful to you.  You can “try the Spirit” and it will help you in everyway. It will not cause you to humiliate yourself by altering your looks just to be accepted by the public. Most importantly, the Spirit will get you to stand up and fight in whatever way possible against injustice.  It will truly liberate you of your fears because as Jesus said, the Spirit is a Comforter. So the question that remains is why would the “powers that be” take the African element out, besides trying to disassociate itself with spiritualism? Well, remember this historical event?

Ok, maybe not. How about these historical events?

MLK a Global Force

MLK a Global Force

Do you get the picture? King was transformed by the Holy Spirit, which transcended all sorts of cultural and racial boundaries. This is why he was able to mobilize people to march on Washington, D.C.  Mind you, when I say they marched, they didn’t take buses and drive to D.C. then walked the rest of the way, like these contemporary marches. The people marched from all over the country to D.C. Regardless of what you believe about King, the fact is that he led the most powerful march in the history of the country, which is why his influence is still felt.  I believe clearly you can see it wasn’t ego driving these people who marched during the Civil Rights era…it was the Spirit.  This is the reason the religion has been watered down, because they don’t want any of us, YOU included, to be the next Martin L. King Jr.

This is why to be reborn the right way means to learn how to connect first to your Osar and this is the true purpose of Kamta.

Never Forget

So, with all of these spiritual people in our society, it is time to change the world.

Hope this helps.
