[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Food Offerings...A Fascinating Insight!

Religion is dead? Thats the whole point isnt it? We talk our Akhu, the Blessed Dead.We make sure they have what they need in the hereafter.We will stand before the original Risen Lord, who died so that unfortunate spirits wouldn't have to live in airless darkness!
 
Yes,I'm very happy to be part of a "dead" religion.

Emhotep.

I had an idea just now. We put (AUS) behind the Nisut's name and its good heka. Once, in Zep Tepi the Gods themselves were Nisuts. Well maybe we could put something behind thier names.But I think to differentiate them from mortals we could put a different initial
 
What if we put (Dua) behind the Kemetic name of Netjer everytime we wrote it to show that this isnt just a regular name?

I also think the letters (WSR) would be a good initial behind a deceased persons name. Or perhaps the letters in Egyptian for "True of Voice."which at the moment escapes me. I would love to know what you all think about this.

 If it were merely fashionable, it wouldn't be permanent. Your parent(s) are the Dietie's you will serve first and foremost for the rest of your life.

Emhotep,

Theres a horrific irony in that situation that something so impure should affront our Gods. I prayed about it a couple of days ago and seemed to get a sense of  "Then its up to you to give Us new places to live"

Emhotep (welcome in peace) EyesofHorus!

Welcome to the boards.

It seems we share a  background, in that I went to a Catholic Seminary but the experience was enough to put me off organized religion for years. After wards I was nominally a "pagan" because I had no other name for what I believed.

My signifigant other introduced me to Thelema,and we often read the Book of the Law to each other.
I was worshipping Nuit for some time, but came to the conclusion it was Crowleys personal revelation, What I later found out was called "personal gnosis" and I just wasn't certain if I had the time or energy to devote my life to that.(Although the Liber Legis is still  one of my most treasured books.)

Not long after, I took art class studying Ancient Egypt and fell in love with the culture. It was immensly satisfying to finally understand  Netjer,our Gods, in thier native context.

I think you will find great support here.The community is wonderful and the discussion is lively. We all arrived here from somewhere else, so there are many ways to practice and many different stories.

Emhotep,

Tamiwi, dont worry.I experimented once to see if that was true.I endured six minutes of horror, and six months of confusion not being able to recognize myself in a mirror, but my eyebrows are now as thick as they ever were.

Quote from: Satsenu
I have a not so odd, yet odd, one in my lineup. Wesir-Sokar. I know of a lot of individuals with Sokar-Wesir, but only one other person beyond myself I know that has Wesir-Sokar in their lineup.


Would that be moi by any chance? Wesir-Sokar is my Father.

Emhotep,

 As a child of Wesir,and a beloved of Aset, your art moves me so deeply. Thank you, and welcome to our community!

Emhotep Imsetra,

Adultery and the other prohibitions of the Confessions are wrong because they create Isfet,Literally it uncreates reality to do evil,tell lies etc.And one of the worst sins is to "eat ones heart out"that is to allow ones self the luxury of anger,envy hatred(even for sin)
Laughter,beauty, goodness,and everything that build up creation nourish Netjer and our own ka.And I think its a lot easier to build up rather than always fretting about the Judgment.As long as one is in this life they will give you the chance and the means to amend whatever errors you make.Though the servant is quick to sin,Netjer are swift to forgive.(to paraphrase an ancient prayer to Amun.

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: In search of a scorpion

Emhotep,

Recently I was divined,( the rite of passage you can choose to take which determine which gods are closest to you) and Aset-Serket was in my lineup.

When I met Serket it was seeing her statue as one of the four protectors of the shrine of Tutankhamen. I was immediately struck by Her beauty. I couldnt stop thinking about her for weeks.  Its debated whether her name means "She who allows the throat to breath, or she who strangles." Yes,she was called upon to heal those suffering from snake bites and scorpions. one of my favorite stories of Aset(Isis) is one where a women refused her hospitality and so the seven scorpions that followed her stung the woman's  child, and Aset healed it.
When I give massages to a friend of mine,who is in a lot of pain due to accidents I invoke Serket,I envision her golden smile and speak her lovely  name.

 I think you are on the right path.You seem to have quickly picked up what They are trying to give you.
Of course the best way to find out more is to ask Serket yourself. Make an offering to Her.You cant go wrong with that.

Emhotep,

The only one I can tell with certainty is Aset. But I get the feeling Set is never far away either.

13
Em hotep,

 Of late Ive felt so much love for Aset.Just the thought of her makes me giddy. Also Ive also got the name Wepwawet on my mind alot.But I wouldnt know how one knows if they have a  connection to a particular god.Is there some sign?

I always sympathized with his endevours.After all hes the hero of the story.The Prince! Granted though I didnt even know there was another Horus(besides sa Aset) until very recently.Dua Heru-sa Aset!

To live in a world where magic happens?!.Sometimes things are so two-dimensional.You hear a word like "magic" said so much it doesnt mean anything.The idea of Heka gives me a new perspective.I love this place!
