Em hotep to the children of Netjer!

The donations raised thus far into this period for April are:

$777.82

Thank you all for continuing to support the House of Netjer. Our monthly fundraising goal is $1500.00 which will satisfy the Ministerial Services Contract to support Hemet to work four 8-hour days per week.

If you plan on donating this month, please remember to donate through the PayPal Giving Fund (https://paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/70429) or through Zelle (https://zellepay.com). Neither of these have any fees associated with donations, which means the House of Netjer receives 100% of donated funds. Regular PayPal, in contrast, does have fees that can potentially remove up to 10% of the donated amount if this is used.

Here is a breakdown of how we distribute donated funds every month:

The first $500.00 is used for general House of Netjer and minor Tawy House expenses (see the financial page at (http://www.kemet.org/finances) for details on temple fees.

The next $1,000.00 goes towards Hemet's salary in addition to $1,000.00 from the Ministerial Services Contract, which supports her to do the various tasks needed for the temple to function, such as emails/forum posts/answering questions, ritual work, pastoral counseling, divinations/RPD's, teaching, research, translations, etc.

Anything else goes into the Rollover Fund, which we use to supplement total donations when they are less than $1500.00 in any fundraising period. The current Rollover Fund balance is $186.28. For information on the Rollover Fund, please see (https://netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=23553.0)

[PUBLIC] Fundraising Announcements / Volunteer needed
« on: November 20, 2019, 02:54:19 pm »
Em hotep to the children of Netjer!

The Fundraising Committee is seeing a volunteer to assist with essential work of the Committee. This would primarily be keeping track of HoN members that are doing special projects in return for donations, as well as members that run businesses that donate a portion of their proceeds to the HoN and submitting this information to Ituiemhat for the monthly newsletter. Other duties would be assigned as needed.

Flexibility and the willingness to work with other team members are essential.

If you've been looking for a way to get involved in service to the House of Netjer, and are interested, please contact me, Tatuayinepu; or reach out to Khaiptah, Tawa'u, or Rev. Mose.  I can be reached at: anubeion2017@gmail or PM.

Senebty,

Em hotep everyone!

I'd like to begin a regular discussion thread of Ancient Egyptian wisdom texts. These have had a lot of meaning for me in my practice before and after becoming a member of Kemetic Orthodoxy, and have greatly enlarged my understanding of not only  Ancient Egyptian thought but on the understanding of the principle of Ma'at.

One of my favorites is from The Husia, by Maulana Karenga, in the Book of Kheti:

"Be skilled in speech so that you will succeed. The tongue of the man is his sword and effective speech is stronger than all fighting. None can overcome the skillful. A wise person is a school for the nobles and those who are aware of his knowledge do not attack him. No evil takes place when he is near. Truth comes to him in its essential form, shaped in the sayings of the ancestors."

This speaks of so many things for me. It tells me that the wise person begins from within, in silence, where they listen to their heart, to their truth. The wise person learns how to pay attention here, first; and the wise person listens to their ancestors. It also tells me that the wise person learns about themselves, and learns self mastery.

"Skillful" means practicing discernment on when it is best to speak, and when it is best to observe silence. It means being able to have awareness of what people are saying-and not saying-and whether their words and behavior seem to be in agreement. It means having good listening skills, really hearing what others are saying, not merely listening with the ears while forming a one's own comments. It means being patient while others speak, even if one disagrees and wants to "correct" the speaker. It also means pausing before one speaks and choosing words carefully.

"The tongue of a man is his sword"is powerful. I thought the use of the word "sword" meaningful, as it can be so many things. In this context it refers to truth, to wisdom, to experience, to the wise person who uses it to uphold Ma'at. It can also apply to one that uses their tongue, as sword, to ruthlessly cut others down in the hopes of "winning", but the extract also clearly implies that one that does that will not be victorious.

It also brings to mind what Netjer have taught me: Truth in Ma'at is a guide, a shield, and a refuge; and if I seek to uphold Ma'at in all things, I will live well and have a good death.

That's enough for me, for now. I'd love to hear from anyone that cares to comment, and hope that this thread catches on.

Thank you for reading.

Tatuayinepu
