You Don’t Have to Push It, If It’s Maa (Truth)!

30 05 2017

Hetepu (Peace and Blessings) Family.

Ok. I have had some trolls really trying to tell me about their thing.  I mean, when I tell them I follow my maa (personal truth and what works for me). They flip out and can’t respect it.  They want to tell me that their stuff is the “truth” and how everyone is going to hell. So, I want to share a little bit about what Maa means to me.

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

Maat (the Personification of Maa)

I know I do not need to tell you this but I am going to say it anyway. I love you all and I don’t care what you are in so long as it is helping you and not harming anyone. I have to say this because some people think that just because you don’t’ subscribe to Christianity or Islam that you hate Christians, Muslims, etc. And, that is farthest from the truth.

Afro – Diasporic spirituality with all of the fine trimmings put aside is based upon one principle and that is…does it work? If it works, that’s the end of the discussion. There is nothing else to be said. I have family members who were strung out and Jesus helped them to conquer their addiction. I am in full support because if that’s what they need to heal them. That’s what they need. Period.

When I was going through my spiritual dilemma, many of these religions just did not fit me. They did not help me to be happy. They did not work for me. Now, that’s not to say that it does not work at all. It just did not work for me. That’s all.

This principle is called in the Kemetic language Maa (some people call it Maat but this is the personification of Maa). Maa translates to mean balance, law, righteousness, truth, etc. but what it really means is “doing what is right versus what is easy.”

Now, that is one interpretation but Maa encompasses so much more.

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.)

In the Story of Osar, when the heir and hero of the story, Hru, has to retreat because his eye was damaged. We get a hint as Djahuti (Thoth) repairs Hru’s eye that Maa is also about holistic vision and holistic living because you have to see the whole picture in order to get the truth.

This brings me to point of this post. Although I respect your right to believe and do whatever you want. I do not appreciate anyone preaching, proselytizing and evangelizing to me what they believe especially when I did not ask what you believe.

This goes for those people who want to knock on my door Saturday morning.  For those who want to stand on the corner with their boys and religious catcall. And, these silly trolls following this blog.

I mean come on?

If it is so good…why are you pushing it off on me?

If something is good then it will show.

Take for example a good restaurant. How do you know if the food in the restaurant is good?  What are the signs? Well. You will see a line of people lined up at their door. You will see happy and satisfied customers going in and out of the restaurant. You will see people come out of the restaurant with smiles on their face. After the experience, you will hear people still comment on how good the food was at the restaurant, and so on.

You never see these people from the restaurant go door-to-door trying to make people eat their food. You don’t see these people jumping up and down on the corner proclaiming how their food will save peoples’ life. You do not see these people criticizing other restaurants. Usually they let their product speak for itself.

So, my question to those who feel they need to proselytize? If what you are doing is so good why aren’t you happy? Why aren’t you pleased or a satisfied customer? I mean, the only people I know who peddle or push something that is not good but claims it is are drug pushers.

If what you are doing is good, it will show and people will see your inner light. If not, you might need to check and see if what you are doing is a right fit.

You see the great thing about Maa is that when you have a divine connection with the Divine. When you need something in your life, it will appear. Call in synchronicity but that is how it will happen. For instance, just recently I had a dream where my wife was driving on the highway and I was on the passenger side. My wife was driving slowly and I was getting a little impatient. Then, I woke up.

It came to me that my ancestors were telling me that I need to be more patient with her because it was information overload symbolized by the highway.

That’s what it means to have a divine connection. That what it means to have a holistic perspective. This is what it means to be Maa. See how my eye was repaired through inner vision, intuition, dreams, etc.?

You see. You can argue beliefs all you want but you can’t argue experience!

So, if you feel you have to go out and convert people to your beliefs. You are really not living or exercising Maa (Truth) because that is not how Maa works. Maa is about Love and love brings on understanding…that is understanding that everyone had different needs.

Again. If it is the TRUTH. You shouldn’t have to force people to accept it because the TRUTH is like good food.

Hope that helps.

Hetep.

What is Practical Kamitic Spirituality?

18 04 2011

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

I feel like Neo talking to the Source. Like…

“DUDE…WTH are you talking about?” 

“I asked you a simple Yes or No question.

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

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

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

That’s right. I woke up (hahaha).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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