I am going to suddenly stop lurking to come comment...

I am getting the wadjet on my wrist at some point, but what I am currently most excited about is the plan for my back piece I am getting in honor of my Father, Sobek-Ra. I have narrowed it down to 3 artists with the help of my partner (who is also a tattoo artist), and I just have to start saving. It is going to be huge though, so it is some years off because of the very great expense of it. I am sure it will be money well-spent, though.

I just wanted to add that you are by far not the only shark lover here. I have an intense love of sharks (and have been following this thread for a while). I have so many shark things that I own... I wish I had any suggestions. Other than I also love reptiles, including alligators and crocodiles, for similar reasons. So that may be one reason why I have always been drawn to Sobek. But that isn't really much of a correlation. The Nit suggestion made me curious, though.

I work at a reptile rescue. I work with all kinds of reptiles, and hope to one day be trained in dealing with alligators and crocodiles and caimans. But for now I am very happy working with all the lizards and turtles/tortoises and snakes.

I'm sure I said it in the beginner's introduction, but em hotep, and I am very excited to meet you. Maybe we will catch each other in chat.

It just occurred to me, I replied directly to the invitation for classes. It said recieved, so I did not think anything of it til now, but do you think that was good enough? I am hoping it went through.

Yes! Thank you, Zemity and Taji, that is just what I was thinking, and it is a relief to hear. Though I am still somewhat anxious to ask more questions about it. I had been thinking... what if our Ka is broken? Because I do not personally believe we could exist without each other, but we are definitely independent. It is all so complicated, but I very much appreciate your insight. I will certainly continue to explore this. In the case of what you said, though, maybe I do not disagree as much as I had thought.

I suppose, then, perhaps I am getting ahead of myself.

Thank you very much. That is good to know, then. There is only one point I am conflicted on, and I would love to become Shemsu, but I do not know if it is going to be a point of too much contention...

I just have a lot of questions about the Ka specifically. I have had people tell me that this may not be the place for me, if I am going to question that. Of course, they were people who either left KO or were never in it in the first place, hence my asking directly.

I believe it makes sense that we have only one Ba, and that we only get one RPD... but for my existence to make sense, I cannot see how having only one, whole Ka makes sense. I am an alter in a dissociative identity disordered system, and though I do not believe we are separate people... we are still individual people. I am the same person as my sisters and brothers, but at the same time I am not. I suppose the question I should be asking is: is there a compromise or an explanation that could satisfy my experiences? In what rudimentary  work I have done with the Netjeru so far, they seem to identify me as different from when one of my sisters does work also... What could that mean?

This is one of the reasons I wanted to learn, but also one of the reasons I have been too nervous to put in my application before. I wish to understand this, but... the one thing I cannot accept is that I am merely some kind of delusion. I am not. So is there another way of looking at the Ka, or perhaps something I do not yet understand?

I apologize for the slew of questions. I appreciate everyone who reads this.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Disagreements?

I was just tentatively wondering while I wait for the beginners' class... how does the community at large (and I suppose, moreover, its leaders) handle disagreements? By that I mean... what if I go through the beginners' course and come out disagreeing with or having a different understanding of one or two ideas? The way I must understand the world, the way I experience it... is very different. And that has been a fear of mine since before I put my application in: that there would be no room for me or my questioning things, when all was said and done.

So I thought, instead of reading blog posts about people's problems with the orthodoxy, I would just ask you all. You all seem very laid-back, so I hope to get a straight answer.... If I, personally, wind up with a different understanding of something than the Nisut has, what will that mean for me, ultimately? How welcome are different perspectives or debates?

I want to learn so badly, but I suppose I am just afraid of becoming very excited and attached to this community, only to be told I do not belong because my view of the world is bound to be different on a couple of points. So I wanted to ask now and stop being afraid of asking, rather than just avoid the subject until it was a problem.

If the question is too general, I may elaborate, but it is complicated, and I am not sure how to go about asking this in the most efficient way possible.

I made it in! Thank you all for your support. I will try to be at the next Tuesday night chat, so long as I do not get called in to work.

And I have a soft spot for terrestrial turtles and tortoises too. Nothing against aquatic turtles, but I love their little feet and how they stomp around.

Thank you so much for all your kind words. I think I feel more confident about the application, in that case... and I am glad I am not the only one who thinks my turtles are cute.
