[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:14:53 am »
I've noticed there's an increase in Kemetics on the pimp my altar Livejournal. Some beautiful shrines on there.

But at the end of the day they're not there to display pretty knick knacks, they're there for a reason, and even the most boring cluttered shrine will serve it's purpose to it's owner! :)

Phew! Thank you so much, your answers have really cleared up a few things in my mind. I like being able to question things and then find proof that they are real. Some people may see my questioning as a lack of faith but I think to have doubts...and then find the proof that I longed for only makes my faith stronger.

I'm also glad that the RPD is only a confirmation of what I probably already know. I was dreading getting the proverbial smack round the head and the Nisut saying "no you can't have Yinepu, he's far too cool for you...here's Mr Bean instead!" lol

I've been looking at the names thread and thinking about a few things recently. I thought it best to come straight out and ask. Please don't feel that I am one of those trolls here to attack the HoN. I am here to learn and true knowledge can only come from questioning, I feel.

So....part of me is desperate to go through the beginners course, the RPD and naming. The rational side of me is saying why can't I do it myself? I am in conflict because on the one hand I'd like confirmation of my beliefs from someone else so I kno it's not just me choosing as I please.....on the other I'm not sure how I feel about being told through someone else. If the Netjer want me surely they will tell me themselves?

I'd like to know what sort of thinking process you went through before you were divined. What was the ceremony like? You don't have to give details but how accurate was everything? Do Netjer prefer you going through the RPD or is it only necessary if you intend to join the house? What things came up that you were expecting/did not expect? Was anything said that no one could have possibly known except Netjer?

Forgive me for my paranoia. I have had bad experiences with religious organisations before and like to tread cautiously before giving my all.

What a wonderful topic! I am only a newbie but I shall try to add to the discussion

Purification #3 - Good grief I hope I don't pass over anytime soon. I don't think I can honestly say "I harbour no enemies". I'm terrible for holding grudges. One in particular springs to mind. I met a girl in my third year of university. She was a pain in the backside but bubbly and chatty so we sort of became friends. As the year progressed she became more annoying. She would flirt with my long-term boyfriend, scream at me if I sat next to him in the car, turn up at his room at random hours of the night. Then she started to encrouach onto me hobbies. She would take over and push me out of the activited that are centred around my hobby. (theres lots more to it but I could go on forever!)

I spoke to some friends on a different forum (without using her name) about how to deal with her. She's not the sort of person that you can say "hey, you're really bugging me" to. Somehow she saw what I wrote and realised I was talking about her. She sent me text saying htat I was insecure and how I was bringing negativity around her all the time. I was relieved to be rid of her but now I'm constantly angry at myself and her for making me feel bad for so long. Then I feel guilty that it might be my fault, despite that fact that all my friends say her behaviour was wrong. Sigh, this will be a hard one to shake off

Purification #4: In my book, killing is only acceptable if in defence of yourself or your loved ones (this means countrymen too). However it doesn't cover those in armed forces fighting a war they started and are enjoying killing the 'enemy'. I think anytime where someone kills and feels some kind of satisfaction from it is murder. This could also include capital punishment. How many people have sat watching someones execution and felt glad? I'm still stuck on the euthanasia part. I don't agree with suicide but if someone is in severe pain with no hope of recovery then surely it's cruel to keep them alive?
