Auset’s Star ~ Humanity’s Mystery
By Malaika Mutere, February 23, 2015
SOPDET/SEPDET (Kemetic/ancient Egyptian) or SOTHIS/SIRIUS (Greek), brightest of all fixed stars, was regarded as the most important star in the sky in Kemet (ancient Egypt) forming the astronomical foundation of their religious system, delineating the rhythms and cycles by which they lived, and establishing its mysterious connection with humanity. Thus Sopdet (meaning “she who is sharp”) is said to be the cradle of human knowledge. Over twenty times brighter than our sun and twice as massive, its brilliant white color is tinged with blue and purple. All the colors of the rainbow sparkle from Sopdet (Sirius) when observed low on the horizon during certain atmospheric conditions.
Some mysteries regard Sopdet as the true light and original source of all life including our sun – “shadow” of the great star – which illuminates the illusory physical world; whereas the great star, Sopdet, keeps the true spiritual world alive. Sopdet has crossed from the east bank of the Milky Way where it resided some 100,000 years ago to the west bank of the celestial Nile River where it currently rests. Continue reading
Tehuti ~ Re-Membering Heaven
December 22, 2013 [Edited]
This post represents Hermes Trismegistus’ words to Asclepius regarding Egypt as a copy of Heaven; refinery/matrix of mankind; and as a prophetic mystery symbolized by the divine feminine and masculine union (Ubuntu)…
Hermes Trismegistus (thrice majestic/magi-king) is the Greek syncretism of their god Hermes (messenger) with the original Egyptian god Tehuti/Thoth. TEHUTI – word-magician, scribe, messenger, and beloved consort of goddess Ma’at who represents truth, balance and heavenly order – is said to be the wisest of the Egyptian Gods. It was Tehuti who helped Auset/Isis resurrect Ausar/Osiris, and who drove the poison out from Heru/Horus (posthumously-conceived son of Ausar and Auset) during his deadly battle against evil uncle Set. (Set – god of the desert, foreigners, disorder, and violence – had murdered, dis-membered, and scattered pieces of his brother Ausar’s body in his bid to usurp the Egyptian throne.)
In this excerpt, Tehuti troubles the waters of the “most sacred River” Nile which flows like the Milky Way from humanity’s cradle to its flowering in Egypt. The Source of the Nile – at the organic cradle of human Continue reading
Neter Tehuti (NTR THT)
Appearance: Tehuti is portrayed as a man with the head of an Ibis wearing a crown of the full and crescent moon of the Sun; usually writing.
Western gods: Thot, Hermes
Symbols: Ibis, pen & tablet or papyrus (writing implements), Full and crescent moon, Baboon.
Principle: Resonance – (word/sound/power)

Tehuti’s powers are concerned with the recording of ‘facts’ or ‘data’ for a cosmic memory that when necessary may reveal its ancient wisdom to whoever calls for it. His energy is said to break through mental barriers; it allows information to become known and secrets or ‘lost’ or ‘forgotten’ ideas to be revealed.
Tehuti assists in the discovery of ‘lost knowledge’ but he communicates more directly with the mind in such a way as is said to ease mental confusion. Continue reading
NTRW from the Book of Doors: Tepi-Aui-Un
By Temple of MAAT-TEHUTI
The NTR of NTRW: NTR NTRW is an expression of the absolute. The symbol for NTR was believed by Wallis Budge to be an axe. We now believe it to be a flag or pennant. It’s the standard that’s placed in front of or on top of the temple to signify the NTR. Two modern day spiritual systems use flags in ways that are similar to their use in KMT. In Tibet the prayer flag has a mantra written on it. When the wind blows the vibration of the spiritual energy is activated which extends the divinity’s blessing to the surrounding area. In Voudon tradition flags are designed according to the direction of the spirits. The flags develop and collect psychic power in them.
In KMT the pole of the flag is symbolically related to the tree. The Tree of Life is the Tree of Nut that restores life and energy to both NTR and people. The tree is also in contact with both heaven and earth. Every part of a tree works to sustain life. Its roots absorb nutrients from the earth, its leaves absorb nutrients from the air, and all energy is transformed into the sap that nourishes itself and other forms of life. The cloth of the flag is made of a natural material that represents the crossing of cosmic coordinates. The flag is activated by Shu-Tefnut the NTRW of air.
(Note: modern day scientific data informs us that magnetism and gravity not air are the two forces that separate Earth-Geb from Nut-Cosmos. Shu and Tefnut should also be considered the twin NTRW of magnetism and gravity.) Continue reading
The Universe Has Three Souls
Notes on Translating Akan Culture (1)
By Phil Bartle, Journal of Religion in Africa, Volume XIV, Number 2, 1982, pp 85-114
Behind each of these three physical elements of the individual there are a series of spiritual personalities or identities which can be seen as parts of increasingly general categories. Behind the flesh and blood is a blood spirit or matrilineal ghost; behind the semen and cleansing fluids is a morality spirit or personality spirit; behind the breath and anima is a destiny soul. Each of these have individual and communal or shared elements, so let us discuss them in turn:
The body belongs to its lineage: so does its “ghost” (saman). When a chief pours a libation on the ancestral stool(s), he is praying to his matrilineal ancestors (Nananom Nsamanfo) and asking them, and, indirectly, God to bring good luck. The word “ghost” is a very poor translation. I prefer to think of saman as “blood spirit” rather than either ghost or soul, because it is different from the other two spirit Continue reading
Peace: “The ultimate Why behind all actions. The emotional /pleasure factor in life.” (Amen, Metu Neter, Volume 1, p. 96)
- Peace is governed by Amen ( 0) which sits above the Paut Neteru (Tree of Life) and corresponds to our learned ability to control our feelings; see the discussion of an Ausar for a description of the kind of person who can obtain Peace at this level. This kind of Peace is everlasting and does not depend on having or not having any thing.
- Peace is also governed by Geb which is the last branch of the Paut Neteru (Tree of Life). This kind of Peace is obtained through the gratification of the senses–an exhilarating workout, a great meal, satisfying sexual relations, etc. This kind of Peace is transient.
- True Peace is obtained by finding the fulcrum points to balance both the Peace available through Amen and the Peace available through Geb. Peace is therefore a dynamic process.
Self/Identity: “What man thinks He is” (Amen, Metu Neter, Volume 1, p. 96). We have an identity we share with others and we have a unique identity. Continue reading
Review by Bonnie Cehovet
“The Book Of Doors” is based on the concepts of the universal language of the symbols of Egypt, and on the archetypal nature of Egyptian deities. Two keys comprise the system behind this deck: the alchemical text known as the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus (which describes the transmutation of primal elements to pure gold), and the numerical system of Pythagorus (specifically the magic square that provides the basis of the numbering for the Neteru). Continue reading
