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.

 





What is Kemetic Spirituality (Kamitic Spirituality, Kemeticism or Ancient Egyptian Spirituality)?

25 02 2018

Before explaining what Kemetic (also sometimes spelled Kamitic, Khamitic or Ancient Egyptian) spirituality is, it is important first to understand a little bit about the Kemetic people and their way of life.

Kamitic Map Copyright Derric Moore 2012

For starters, according to the Kemetic texts, wall art and legends, the indigenous Kemetic people consisted of a numerous tribal people who migrated from a southern land known as Kush (Ancient Nubia the modern day Ethiopia and Sudan region).  Thousands of years ago, these ancient people settled alongside the Nile River and built an agrarian culture that revolved around the annual inundation of the great river.

Pyramid structure in Ancient KushLike most indigenous cultures from around the world, the Kemetic people studied nature and developed their spirituality thereafter. The Kemetic people relied upon a bartering system for goods and services. In fact, gold was not even valued by the Kemetic people as it is today, until after it was conquered by the Romans.  This bartering system depended on the annual flooding of the Nile to make the desert soil fertile, great importance was placed on ensuring that the waters of the Nile overflowed.  Without a monetary system, if the Nile flooded it produced fertile lands, which in turn yielded a successful harvest, that allowed everyone within the country to reap the benefits. However, if the Nile did not flood and the harvest was not good, then famine reached into the homes of both the rich and the poor.

To ensure that the Nile always flooded so that they were always prosperous, early Kemetic people began making ritualistic gestures accompanied by words for a successful harvest. If the following year the harvest was a success, then the ritualistic gestures and the spoken phrases were recorded and repeated to influence next year’s harvest. If the harvest was not a success after performing a ritualistic gesture and words, then that ritual was abandoned. In time, the Kemetic people had developed three methods of ensuring that they had a successful harvest and they were: 1) Making offerings to the Nile; 2) Ingesting magical potions and inscriptions; and. 3) Petitioning their ancestors whom they believed could influence the lives of living.

Kemetic Ritual courtesy of Wikipedia.orgSince Kemet was basically an oasis that relied upon bartering, a sort of quid pro quo philosophy developed and the most abundant offerings were incense and resins.  But, because incense and resins were so prized, only the king could afford to make these offerings for the successful inundation of the Nile. In time, it became the sole responsibility of the king to perform these rituals all over the country, to ensure that all of the Kemetic citizens could prosper.   Thereby transforming the king from an ordinary man into God’s representative on earth. Basically, the Kemetic king was seen as a mediator between the spirit world and the physical world symbolized by the leopard pelt, which was also a symbol of balance and self-control or Maa. Soon it became too much for the king to perform all of these rituals and eventually it was delegated to other members of royalty and the priesthood.

In a relatively short time, the Kemetic priesthood evolved and became so powerful that they were able to challenge the king’s authority because aside from performing rituals for the Nile that ensured that everyone was prosperous. The Kemetic priesthood worked as scribes, carpenters, metalworkers, physicians and artisans that provided a host of spiritual services to the people mainly because majority of the Kemetic people were illiterate.  To service their people, the Kemetic priesthood opened its’ membership to both both men and women, a celebratory feat that is still not seen in Judaism, Christianity and Islam because of sexism.  Some of the most famous Kemetic priestesses were Queen Ahmose Nefertari, Hatshepsut’s grandmother, the priestess Tamut and there are many others who held high positions in the priesthood in the Amun spiritual tradition.

Queen Ahmose Nefertari

In fact, through the Kemetic priesthood one could elevate their social status from an illiterate farmer to a high nobleman within the community.  There are numerous accounts of common people with special skills having a change in social status because they used their skills to improve the lives of others because the priesthood allowed people to hone their talents.   It was through the priesthood that various spiritual practices were developed and beliefs were shared with other cultures that the Kemetic people encountered. Because spiritual rituals permeated every aspect of the Kemetic peoples’ life, the Kemetic people were described as being the most religious people in the ancient world.

Life for members of the Kemetic priesthood was busy because the Kemetic priesthood was a business that focused on performing spiritual rituals the people. However, the average Kemetic citizen only venerated their ancestors and celebrated local and national spirits during their festivals. In other words, the basis of Kemetic spirituality revolved around the veneration of their ancestors. For the most part, the only time the average Kemetic citizen petitioned the higher spirits, divinities or so-called gods and goddesses, is for emergency purposes such as for a successful harvest and healthy cattle.  Again, the Kemetic people focused on group prosperity and not on individual, which allowed their society to exist for thousands of years. As a result, every western system such as western religion, western government, western science, western financial structure, etc. has been inspired by the Kemetic society and has desperately tried to imitate their success.  All of these western systems that were inspired by the Kemetic culture have failed miserably to mimic the Kemetic success because western scholars focused on treasures of Kemet because their tombs were full of valuables. Instead of on the Kemetic concept of Knowledge of Self.

Consequently, many of us live in a country that may be rich in Kemetic symbolism but it is not the bearer of the Kemetic Light.

In fact, many of us do not live in an agrarian society with strong and loving rulers. We do not have a trustworthy clergy and other professionals who are concerned about our health and wellbeing. Since our contemporary society is based upon a monetary system, which places values on technological gadgets and the possession of things like shoes, clothes, a new car, home, etc. Prosperity is not based upon ethics, morality of the services that one provides other citizens but the collection of material things. In this western society, religion is not used as a means of ensuring that everyone within the country is prosperous, but instead used to incite fear in its citizens of a tyrannical deity.  In order to ensure social obedience to the wealthy ruling class and dominance over the masses’ physical and mental potential. In place of an appreciation for nature and respect for all living beings, is the exploitation of the natural resources and the manipulation and maltreatment of all human beings, especially people of color.

The rising interest in Kemetic spirituality is to return back to the days before the rise of monotheistic religions – particularly Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Since the inception of these three main western religions, which were tasked with bringing peace to all of humanity. There have been countless atrocities such as the enslavement of people of color, brutality against women and numerous wars waged in the “name of God,” who supposedly is bringing peace on earth.

Oset (Aset, Auset or Isis in Greek) and the Virgin Mary

Before the rise of these Abrahamic religions, life on earth was relatively peaceful and simple, and since most of these religions borrowed concepts and principles from the Kemetic religions and spiritual traditions. Most see Kemetic spirituality as a purer form of these religions minus the religious dogma, religious fear and guilt about God, and religious social control.

All practitioners of Kemetic spirituality strive to live their lives according to the Kemetic concept Ma’at or Maa. Maa is the Kemetic word for balance, order, truth, righteousness, etc.  The concepts of Maa can be found all throughout the Kemetic literature because it is very similar to the Chinese Tao.  But unlike Taoism whose philosophies and practices have been preserved over the ages in books and secured in Chinese culture for hundreds of years, the books about Maa have been destroyed by looters and lost in the sands of times.

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Since there are no clear concise Kemetic text explaining in detail their beliefs and practices, adherents of Kemetic spirituality have interpreted the practice of the philosophy as they desire. Most followers can be grouped into two categories: Kemetic Reconstructionists and Kemetic Shamans.

Hru (Heru, Hrw or Horus) Leading the Way and Jesus leading the Way

Kemetic Reconstructionists (KR) are usually individuals who focused on reconstructing the Kamitic/Kemetic religion of old. As a result, most KRs rely heavily on the Kemetic spiritual texts such as the Pert em Hru (so-called Egyptian Book of the Dead), the Pyramid Texts, the 42 Laws of Ma’at (the model for Moses’ Ten Commandments), etc. Most KRs may have one shrine will a host of Kemetic icons on it to demonstrate balance, which in this sense is very similar to the original Roman Catholic religion prior to the Council of Nicaea.  The various divinities are seen as archetypes and/or emissaries of God similar to how the various saints are viewed in Catholicism.

The First Divine Trinity

However, overall the central theme in most KRs practice is the Kemetic Asar (Osiris), Aset (Isis) and Hru (Horus) who are viewed as the first and original divine trinity.  In fact, most KRs view Hru (Heru, Hrw or Horus in Greek) as the original prototype or avatar of Jesus who was born of virgin birth, identified by a star in the east, adorned by three kings, a teacher at 12 years of age, performed miracles, baptized at 30, crucified, rose from the dead, etc. 3000 years before the birth of Jesus. Some KRs worship Hru similar to the way Christians worship Jesus with the distinction being that the Kemetic hero is not seen as the literal savior of humanity, but rather as a divine energy that exists within everyone and can be used to help humanity save themselves. Consequently, a lot of KR practices revolve around meditation and meditative practices that focus on merging with the God-Self within.

Kamitic Shamans or Kemetic Shamans are usually individuals who use the Kemetic philosophy as the core of their spiritual tradition and combine it with influences from other spiritual paths (usually traditional African beliefs and practices) because Kemet is recognized as the cradle of traditional African spirituality.

Unlike KRs, Kemetic Shamans only believe in worshiping God who may be called Neter – the Supreme Being – or Nebertcher – the Lord of Everything; and working with a host of spirits such as their ancestors and divinities from other pantheons.  Most Kemetic Shamans are very eclectic and their altar reflects their spirituality. However, their main focus is achieving and maintaining balance in their life, and helping others to accomplish the same feat.

This is because Kemetic Shaman believe that the reason they are here is to perfect themselves by mimicking the Creator, who is the epitome of balance or Maa. In other words, most KS believe that when we have an illness, problem, etc. in our life, the physical problem reflects a spiritual imbalance. To live in balance is to live perfectly, and although one may not achieve perfection in life, one can still attempt. From this perspective, evil is anything done excessively, while good is anything that is done in moderation.  For this reason, it is not uncommon to find a host of other divinities on a Kemetic Shamans altar because they are all seen as forces working towards attaining and maintaining balance in an individual’s life.

 

Another thing to keep in mind is that most Kemetic Shamans are practical spiritual practitioners that focus on tangible results.  In order to achieve such goals, they are usually led by the Spirit, which could be the spirit of an enlightened ancestor, a spirit guide or a personal spirit guardian. Consequently, most of the KS beliefs and practices were not be found in a book. Most of their beliefs and practices are due to them communicating with their primary spirit and trial-and-error. When most KS speak about a subject it is because they have a had a personal experience with the subject they are speaking of. For instance, most KS would not advise that someone engage in a practice that they have not done themselves.

Because they are practical spiritual practitioners that are led by the Spirit, there are no spiritual rules, no religious dogma, no guidelines, etc. that the KS follow, except the ones that they establish for themselves. If something works they use it but, if something does not feel right, they abandon it.

On Monotheistic and Polytheistic Beliefs

It should be noted that Jews, Christians and Muslims will be quick to claim that adherents of Kemetic spirituality are idolaters because they have a narrow view of God.  This is because western religious beliefs is based upon the acceptance of an individual’s opinionated perception regardless if it is right or wrong.  The ambiguity within western religions is the main reason religion has created more division and authored wars among its followers and other faiths.  This is the reason women have been and are still persecuted in western religions because of the misunderstanding of Divine Feminine principle.

In Kemetic spirituality, God is understood to be the Creator of All Things, which means the essence of God exists in everyone regardless of their color, race, ethnicity, sex, and beliefs. This means that there is not just one way to understand who and what God is. In fact, knowing God is not based solely upon beliefs, but upon experiencing God for oneself. Since God is too abstract for our human mind to truly comprehend, Kemetic adherents believe that God has created numerous divinities, which all represent different facets of the Divine.   In other words, the so-called gods and goddesses are actually different aspects of the Divine who is the Source of Everything. That being said, Kemetic adherents do not worship idols, they simply focus on knowing all of the attributes of their Creator who they are mimicking since they are Children of God.

Overall, Kemetic spirituality is becoming increasingly popular because it actually delivers what it promises, which is an improved relationship with the Divine that allows one to see God within themselves. In other words, it delivers true peace of mind.

The Metaphysical Understanding behind the Black Panther film

20 02 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

Ok. The reviews are in and Black Panther is making millions. By now, I am sure you have heard every critic and review available from the far right to the far left, but I have not heard anyone mention the metaphysical and spiritual significance of this film, so let me give my take on it.

For the record, after seeing the Black Panther in Captain America’s Civil War; I was stoked to see the Black Panther movie mainly because I like so many of us, was tired of seeing every Black hero portrayed as a bald headed man who just wants super strength. When BP made his appearance he was cool because his fighting style was unmatched. He reminded me of Blade another Black anti-hero whose skills were unmatched.

Of course, after the movie came out. There were all type of critics and reviews. Now, I am not going to spend a lot of time speaking about the obvious.  As you already know, the film was about the African born prince T’Challa who becomes the Black Panther, and the American born African N’Jadaka aka Erik Killmonger who becomes the Golden Jaguar.  That right there should be enough for you to see the blatant symbolism in this film. As many within my circle have clearly pointed out, T’Challa’s attitude and disposition is passive. He represents those idealistic Africans who come to the United States and are not familiar with systematic racism. While, Killmonger represents not only Africans descendants born in the United States, but symbolic of his mask every indigenous person such as the Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, and the Africans in South Africa, whose lives have been disrupted by systematic racism.

Another interesting thing that should be noted is that I am amazed of how many people dressed up for this movie and wore African attire, as if it were a costume. I mean I find it interesting that all it took for ppl to appreciate their African heritage was to see a fictional movie about Africa.Again, just stating the obvious.

Now, on to the esoterics because we are spiritually minded and we use everything for our empowerment.

So, the mineral used to power their suit and technology was called vibranium, which alludes to a mineral that vibrates. Whenever the Wakadans harnessed this energy they never used drills or mining tools but it was sort of like they channeled it and used visualizations to shape it.  This other thing about this mysterious metal was that it gave them a sort of dark purplish aura.  This is all reminiscent of the dark energy that I call KAMTA.

Remember, KAMTA is what the Kemetic people called the southern region of Kemet.  Most people believe that the Kemetic people called this region the Black Land (Kam – Black, Ta – Land) because of the annual inundation of the Nile River. But what most people forget is that the Kemetic people were the descendants of Kush, which means their ancestors dwelled in the Black Lands. In other words, the Black Lands is a metaphor referring to the nature of the spirit world that exists underground. This is clearly a plug to Afrikan spirituality which is largely based upon one’s relationship with their ancestors (and other spirits) who dwell beneath us and whose shoulders we stand upon. In fact, the imagery of the BP ancestral land should have strongly resonated with anyone familiar with Afrikan spirituality.

Copyright Marvel Studios 2018.It should be noted that the Black Lands, which is where the old black panthers resided were in the spirit world or ancestral land that T’Challa had to visit. Those familiar with the Kemetic shaman perspective of the Story of Osar will easily see in this case that T’Challa symbolizes Hru (Heru, Horus) communicating with the dead Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris).  Remember, Osar is called the Lord of the Underworld or the Lord of the Ancestral Realm, which is another reference to the Superconscious or the realm beyond our normal, habitual subconscious. It should be noted that Warriors Falls is reddish in color to symbolize hostility, which reminded me of TASETT – the Red Lands.

Copyright Marvel Studios 2018

The other thing that should be noted is that the black panther’s suit emulated or engulfed him with this protective black power.  Many will see this dark mysterious liquid-like energy as melanin but I understood it to be the protective powers of our ancestors/spirits who dwell in KAMTA, which is the true source of power. The purple glow or the color purple symbolizes power which is used extensively in African magickal practices for dominance.  The color purple is also used to symbolize royalty while the color gold was used to symbolize just raw power.

Another hint that T’Challa is supposed to be a warrior form of Hru is that he had to drink the crushed-up heart shape plant. This heart shape plant is a reference to the Ab (Spiritual Heart) division of the Spirit, while some may see it relating to the heart chakra.

I know that a little people focused on the fight between T’Challa and Killmonger but if we choose to see it from a higher perspective. Metaphorically we can say that the fight between T’Challa and Killmonger was really a fight between Hru and Set or the battle between Shango and Ogun, or old traditions versus new traditions. Psychologically speaking it was a battle or fight between the middle self (conscious) and lower self (subconscious and ego-self).   This same story was borrowed by the early Christian writers and portrayed as the battle between Jesus and Satan when he goes to hell but unfortunately it is interpreted literally, so many people miss it.

I am sure that there are some more clues that can be drawn but this is the gist of it.

Now, there is one thing that we should all keep in mind which is that the original story was created by Stan Lee. In other words, this is Stan Lee’s interpretation of the Afrikan/Black experience.  If you watch Stan Lee’s interview he was inspired by the actual Black Panther Party.  From a spiritual perspective, I believe that the Spirit still worked through the cast and crew so that they could make a positive and empowering film.  Yes, it is not what we wanted but name one movie that is.  I have heard all of the debates and even participated in some but overall I thought it was a good movie considering what they had to work with. If you are really interested in Black Comics then support them. The City of Detroit has a Black Comicon every summer and I am sure there are other venues that exist.  Our experience has made way for us to have thousands upon thousands of stories. So don’t be fooled into thinking that b/c of our experience we do not have the right to talk about our holocaust. Help make this a positive and empowering moment.

The Two Things That Will Hinder and Even Halt Your Spiritual Growth

1 02 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family

I have been meaning to write this post for the longest time but I guess it was not meant to be until now. I just wanted to let you know that since I have been on this journey, I have noticed that there are two things that will seriously delay your spiritual growth and they are: Intellectual Masturbation and Conspiracy Theories.

What is the purpose of spiritual development? 

First, the reason these two subjects have the ability to seriously hinder and/or stop you from achieving your spiritual goals is because most people do not understand the purpose of spiritual development. Most of us flee to spiritual development to escape western religions (Christianity, Jehovah Witness, Islam, etc.) but usually because of our disdain of those dogmatic teachings, we never try to understand why we were born into those religions in the first place. Many of us say, “Everything happens for a reason,” but fail to see the Divine reason why were placed into those religions, and therefore the purpose of spiritual development. So, let me tell you what I have learned thus far.

The purpose of spiritual development is to overcome our lower-ego-self who is personified as the devil or Set. That’s right! The devil is not some evil reddish imp running around tempting people to do evil. The devil is your lower self and the reason the devil or Set knows you so well is because he was born and raised in your subconscious mind. Everything that you do as a habit (good or bad) is governed by the subconscious part of your spirit.  Most of our habits are like programs, which were developed out of our childhood experience to help us to physically survive, but at some point, in our life.  A habit or program (good or bad) becomes outdated and is no longer useful, so it needs to be replaced.  Think of this way, an old skool rapper trying to rap using lingo from 1986?

So, we must change.

All change is not bad or evil. Everything in this physical world is temporal and dynamic, so change is necessary for new growth to take place. When a habit or program has outlived its purpose, it must be changed because if not it hinders progress and evolution, and this is where we meet our devil Set.

Because Set does not like constructive and positive change. Set instead would rather you make excuses and blame others for all your failures, problems and setbacks in life.  Your Set will convince you that you cannot achieve a goal because of your race, beliefs, ethnicity, etc.  In other words, Set encourages you to take the Easy road out.  For the record, I want you to understand that racism, classism, biases and all sorts of disparities are physically real and are real obstacles that have been placed before us. And, they are impossible for us to overcome if we think like a human being. However, if we think like a God and Goddess because we are Children of the Divine, anything is possible.

This is the purpose of spiritual development and this is the reason you are here. You came here to develop your God-given divine abilities and the only way you can develop them is by being put into the fire. Set is here to test you and to be the main adversary to tell you what you cannot do, so that you do it.

Understanding that spiritual development is all about fighting against your Set (ego-self) to overcome your anxieties, fears, guilt, worries, etc., which are all the negative emotions that will prevent you from being successful and achieving anything in life, means that you need to understand certain subjects can be a benefit or a hindrance.

One of the subjects that can be a huge benefit is history. History understood from a Divine, Godly or Osarian (Higher Self) perspective is a great tool that will help you to see that there have been others in similar situations as yours, that have achieved impossible feats.  This means that you can achieve the impossible as well.

For instance, learning that Vivien Thomas was a bright surgical technician, should be proof that anyone can practice medicine. Reading about Lonnie Johnson was the inventor of the Super Soaker should be inspiration that anyone can be an inventor. The stories of Katherine Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan were brilliant mathematician, and Mary Jackson was a brilliant engineer, who were highlighted in the film Hidden Colors, should be proof that anyone can do mathematics despite living in a racist society.

But, if you approach history from a humanly and Setian perspective, you will focus on what’s wrong, which will quickly lead escalate to intellectual masturbation and/or conspiracy theory.

From the film I’m Going to Get You Sucka!

Intellectual masturbation (IM) is when an individual has read and studied every book in the world. They are not historians because they do not have the intellectual and or self-discipline to devote themselves to the subject with true rigor. They simply use history to as an excuse to prove to themselves and others what they can and cannot do. You can always tell when an individual is an intellectual masturbator because they are great debaters but, they never have any substantial proof of what they are talking about.  To intellectual masturbators, Charles Drew, Vivien Thomas, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and others are seen as, flukes in history to justify their subconscious fears. Another thing about IM is that they heavy into metaphysics but again, they have no proof that any of the stuff they talk about works. They will tell you “So-and-so is a God/Goddess” but as soon they are put into a situation where they literally have to show-and-prove that they are God or Goddess.  They “be like I was just kidding” or they have a plethora excuses of how ‘da system (matrix), da man, their momma or daddy, etc.’ stopped them from succeeding. Again, spiritual development is about overcoming that social conditioning that has us being anxious and living in fear.

Most people who fall into the trap of becoming IM because they overheard an intelligent conversation regarding history and basically try to mimic others in order to sound cool. Basically, they are historical bandwagon riders. This is the reason they don’t really know history but they are masters of the rhetoric. Most of the hotep people are IM because Kemetic or Kamitic is cool to them but not cool enough for them stop being misogynistic.  Remember, spiritual development is about changing your old ways and anyone who makes 1000+1 excuses on their negative behavior is not really serious about spiritual development. For the most part, most IMs are fad chasers. These people were nowhere to be found 10 or 20 years ago. They are the ones responsible for making Consciousness a religion.  To play it safe, it is best to avoid these people because will lead you back into another dogmatic religion. If it is not one of the recognizable organized religions, then the new religion will be vegetarianism, veganism, or conservatism or some other ism. These people simply need to learn how to overcome their negative perspective and see life from both an objective and subjective perspective.

Conspiracy Theorists (CT) are the biggest group of individuals who will deter your spiritual growth. Like intellectual masturbators, CTs see what is wrong with society but take it to a paranoia level.  To them, everyone who has succeed in life is part of some clandestine group.  In fact, the entire society is ruled by some clandestine group fighting for total control against other clandestine groups. Not only that, it goes further. These clandestine groups are involved in a heavy conspiracy to prevent the world from knowing that aliens exist.

It sounds funny, but CTs are serious. I used to be one of them and gave up this obsession when I learned that an old neighbor of mine was a CT. This man was bitter, unhappy, and had two failed marriages, but his home was full of video tapes, conspiracy books, surveillance equipment and built to survive a zombie apocalypse.

Who cares if there are aliens from another planet or not. Are they going to help you? Who cares if the world is flat or round, how is that knowledge going to help you and improve your quality of life? I mean unless you are a government spy harboring the blueprints for a secret weapon, the government does not really, give a damn about you. We live in a capitalistic society that focuses more on money, so to the government we are all cattle and the government has been having tabs on us.  To paraphrase Talib Kweli “You’re a fool if you don’t think the government has not already tapped your line. “

Yes, conspiracies exist and most of us play right into them without even knowing it. Speaking from experience, the reason most people get caught into CTs is because the hell, brimstone and the world coming to an end – the Book of Revelations, was heavily impressed upon their subconscious (when they were younger). They were literally beat over the head in church about doomsday and when they got older, they never overcame the fear to understand that it was B.S.  So, they spend their life trying to avoid the end of the world.

HRU (Heru, Horus)

When you really, submerge yourself into spiritual culture, you will learn that the end of the world described in the bible is an allegory referring to the end of a specific state of consciousness. Aren’t you tired of things being the way they are in this screwed up society? Why would you want to keep it? Remember, Set does not want change. When this old boy network burns down, I will see you at the campfire with some marshmallows. I am looking forward to this way of thinking coming to an end and as a true Child of God or a Hru, you should be looking forward to things coming to an end as well so that like Hru, you can reclaim your heritage.

So, don’t be deluded by these two ploys created to keep you living in fear.

Understand, we all have trauma that we have had to endure but if you continue to view your negative experience from a superficial perspective. You will never learn how to overcome it. You did not come here to be a man or woman. You came here to prove to yourself that you are a God or Goddess. You came here to master the Universal Laws. Gods and Goddesses don’t give a damn who is the president because they live their lives based upon a higher principle. Let me say this again, because I do not want people thinking that people focused on true spirituality are heartless, inconsiderate and unconcerned about current events.  We are concerned but we are here for a reason and we understand our purpose. We focus our attention on changing that which is in our immediate sphere of influence. So, if you think you can change the political state of affairs by all means do it but don’t criticize others because they think it is a waste of time. They see it as a waste of time because that is not their purpose.

The sooner you realize this, the sooner you can get into your development and start making some real changes in your life and the life of those whom you love.

How to Get Paid What You’re Worth?

27 01 2018

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

You know this is a hard pill for many of us to swallow but the facts of the matter are that we live in a capitalistic money economy society, which means in order for you to get any income.  You have to compete and work against others and be employed by someone who does not share your best interests. We all compromise our principles and standards in order to get funds in our pocket. In other words, we all sell out.

Yes, we all sell out.  We are all sell outs and if you do not think you are a sellout then you most likely you have no responsibilities and are a leach to those around you, which is worse because you have become someone else’s responsibility.

So, all need to come clean and accept that we are all sellouts and we all sellout in order to feed our family and put a roof over their heads. Now some of us sell out more than others, but essentially it is still the same.

Now, here comes the doozy, so brace yourself.

Whatever you get paid, is what your employer thinks you are worth.  In other words, if you get paid minimum wage…your employer thinks you are worth in some places only $7.50 an hour.  That means you are worth $300 a week ($7.50 X 40 hours).

Think about that. $300 a week to feed, clothe and provide shelter for you and your loved ones. This is not even including health care and other miscellaneous expenses.

Of course, if you get paid $25 an hour. Your employer thinks you are worth to their organization $1000 a week, which by the time we add all of the expenses dwindles down between $400 – $600 for your take home.

The question that you have to ask yourself is “How much am I worth?”

This needs to be asked because a lot of people say they want to make money or they want to get more money but they don’t understand the system. This is the reason your employer may grant you a bonus or a pay raise because they know you do not know your own self-worth, so they nickel and dime you with pay raises and promotions.

And, the only reason we continue to accept the way they treat and pay us is because we do not know our worth.

Understand. I am not telling you to turn down a pay raise, advancement, promotion or whatever. I am not telling you to stop working, so pease do not call me telling me that you quit your job and you need some financial help. I want you to understand that I am not even criticizing or judging how you make your money. How you make your money is how you make it based upon what you think of yourself. I am here to ask you…

Can you make more? Are you really living up to your potential?

You see Family. I am not sure if you see it but slavery never ended. No, physical slavery does not exist in the Americas.  People can walk around without any physical chains but emotional, psychological and economical slavery continues to exist. Just like they paid for $300+ for slaves back in the day, this is what most employers are doing today. They are paying you what they think you are worth, not your potential.

Remember, “they” enslaved brilliant minds who were artisans, philosophers, healers, inventors, etc. and simply forced them to work in tobacco, cotton, sugar and rice plantations because that is what they convinced our ancestors that they were only good for.

So now we have people that want to boycott and march but for what? For the employers to give them more trinkets?

This is like a slave appealing to the Christian ethics of the slave owner and asking to give Sunday off and not to chastise them as much.

No. End slavery PERIOD and the only way to do so is by realizing your self-worth and do for self.

Once you realize that you are not a mindless machine but that you are divine being. You will stop selling out and thinking that the only way you can acquire funds if through your employer.

Wealth is not just money. Wealth can be found in family, friends, connections with others, etc., which can also increase your finances.

So, how do you realize your self-worth?

  1. First, connect with your Higher Self. When you truly understand what your Higher Self is, how all of the greatest inventors had a strong rapport with their Higher Self and what your own Higher Self can do for you. You will begin to understand what you are capable of.
  2. Second, now you should read and study history because you will see the pattern and how history repeats itself. You will find the people who made the greatest, positive impact in this world were all attuned to their Higher Self. Reading and studying history without understanding the nature of one’s Higher Self (Superconscious) is simply the repeating of a list of names, dates and facts. This is why history is so boring and does not serve us in this society. As a spiritual practitioner, we relive history by studying it and consulting our ancestors regarding it, to make better choices than they did.
  3. Finally, do whatever you want that makes you happy, brings you peace of mind and improves the quality of all life. Contrary to popular belief, Charles Darwin found that life was both completive and cooperative. Darwin never coined the racist adage “that only the strong survive” but, it was Herbert Spencer. In fact, Darwin found that the main reason humanity had managed to survive thus far, was because we did not have sharp teeth, claws and fur. Human beings developed the skill to work together, hence cooperate with one another. This is what propelled us to the top in the evolution game. This is the reason the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek) is essential to our spiritual development because all of our problems are due to the fact that we are engrossed in our lower animal nature and are being manipulated by other lower animal nature individuals. When you understand your self-worth, it becomes evident that you incarnated on the planet for a reason, which means what you provide will help yourself and others. This means there is no real competition because you are unique. The more people you help, the more you help yourself. You are not doing it for the money, but for the love because it ties into your purpose.

Remember, the Kemetic (Ancient Egyptians) were not poor people. They amassed a great wealth because they cooperated (not enslaved) with one another.

So, the next time you go to work and asked to do something that you do not like. The next time you feel that you are being taken advantage of and manipulated.  The next time you get tired of waking up and dealing with the same problems at work. Tell yourself that you are only getting paid what your employer thinks you are worth.

If you want to get paid based upon your potential, you have to do what makes you happy, brings you peace of mind and improves the quality of all life.  This is the only way the Universe will move in your favor.
