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

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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