Longjing is also called dragon well, and I'm still looking for my holy grail because it can be really hit and miss - the quality between brands varies enormously, and it can make one dragon well taste totally different from another. Blech.

James actually won a Man Booker prize for his novel, A Brief History of Seven Killings. If you like Jamaica, the 70's and drug cartels, I'd recommend that. If you like slave uprisings and a bit of witchery, I'd recommend The Book Of Night Women. If you like religious and sexual hysteria, then it's John Crow's Devil. He's also releasing a fantasy book soon - Black Leopard, Red Wolf.

These all sounds amazing!  I'll definitely have to look into them... you know, when I have some spare time!  Good luck with the tea search <3

Shu: You know how they say that if you love your job, you don't work a day in your life? Well, it's not true  :P But I do love it! I'm pretty eclectic as far as books are concerned, but my top genres are definitely, in order, horror, sci-fi, fantasy and romance. My favourite author is Marlon James... who, incidentally, doesn't write any of those genres! (Yet... he's releasing a fantasy book this year. I'm excited!) As for tea? I can't deny a good cup of Irish Breakfast, and I'm also partial to a good lapsang souchong. I'm still seeking my longjing holy grail!

I definitely know what you mean! I work in education and I love my job, but some days I am so frustrated I want to cry. It’s a balance, like most things XD

I’ve never heard of Marlon James. Recommend a book? I love new obsessions :p I think my genre preference is pretty close to yours! I might once in awhile swap fantasy and sci-if though.

Hm, I’ve never heard of longjing. Why is it a holy grail? Hard to find?

 I would love to help with this. I am currently translating a German book about Khepera.  It will probably take me awhile to be able to fill in all that information, but I will work on it!

Khepera is Father most of the time, but sometimes I will say Dad.  When I address Him directly though, it is always Father.  I find that Serqet-Aset doesn't really like the term "Aunty" so I tend to call Her by Name, or Lady/Mistress.  Djehuty likes Uncle, but when I am making offerings I tend to call Him by epithets that come to mind at the time, usually in reference to wisdom and/or the moon. 

As you can see, I tend to be very formal, heh.

Senebty,
Shu

Em hotep and Nekhtet for sending in your application!

Twenty years lurking is quite a long time.  May I ask what has finally made you decide to come out from hiding?  I feel like something momentous has to have happened to push you to join the class! 

I wish you luck, and look forward to seeing you progress along the path :)  If you have questions and/or need a friendly ear, feel free to message me!  PM or email - shukheperasankhi@gmail.com

Senebty,
Shu

Em hotep! 

Tending cattle for a living sounds like a lot of work!  I can't imagine.  Sounds like it's good though, if they're your favorite animal.  (:  I see you like to read.  What type of books?  Do you have a favorite author?

My favorite tea is jasmine, but I like anything floral.  How about you?  ^.^ 

It's very nice to meet you, and I hope you find something of value from the beginner's class.  You may seem in the IRC chats, as my daughter is taking them as well.  If you have questions, thoughts, or just want a friend, feel free to PM me.  I'm also available via email  - shukheperasankhi@gmail.com

Senebty!

If we share Beloveds we also often call each other cous/cousin.  For example, Ra'awyserqet has Serqet as a Mother, and I have Serqet as a Beloved - so I view them as a cousin.

My daughter is joining the beginner's class this time around, and potentially my partner as well.  Hopefully you'll all enjoy it!

I think I’ve been gone longer than you have; I’ve not been around since 2011. I am pleased to meet you. It’s exciting to see many new people involved in Kemetic Orthodoxy since I last participated.

Most definitely!  I was a beginner in 2011, I was divined and Named in 2012 :) So I probably never even really got to meet you or become familiar with you!  But we're both here now ^.^

Again, thank you all for the warm welcome back.

Em hotep! 

I apologize for being so late to this thread!  There are a small handful of us that call Khepera our Father, and I feel sad that none of us were able to reply to this in a timely fashion.  Everyone's answers are amazing though :) 

For me... He is forgiveness.  He is forever.  He is my daily reminder that despite everything, I can go on.  I feel His warmth and protection whenever I ask.  Quite frankly, He is the Father I needed, but never had. 

I've been away from my practices for a long while, but every once in awhile, I would call on Him, and though I felt his quiet rebuke for not being more present, I always felt that He understood, and would be waiting.

I don't have Nut in my line-up, but She was the first goddess that I felt comfortable approaching outside of my Family.  I used to spend a lot of time sitting outside at night speaking with Her.  I would take a small cup of water and some jasmine incense and offer them to Her, along with my secrets.  One thing that I have always felt about Her is that She is very understanding, but also firm.  So I guess that falls under what people have described as "grandmotherly!"

I haven't been here in a long while.  I haven't been in touch with my faith and spirituality in about two years - since my mom died.  I've lost touch with a lot of things that were once important to me.  A recent hospitalization for my mental health has pushed me to really evaluate what I'm doing and how I'm doing it.  I've made slow changes since October, and in the last week, I've felt this push at the back of my mind.  I haven't honestly thought about KO in quite some time, aside from some internal dialogue with my Father.  I didn't celebrate the the new year, and I haven't spent time in my shrine.  But Someone clearly wants me to fix this.  I'm not sure Who it is, but I intend to find out. 

Point is... I'm here, and I'm working on taking my life back, one step at a time.

« on: August 01, 2013, 01:45:45 am »
I went ahead and tried to see how I would do translating some of Khepera's epithets from the LAGG.  I haven't finished yet, but I figured I'd post what I've accomplished this evening to start with.  I don't know German at all, so I've just been trying to work with different dictionaries.  Corrections/suggestions are definitely welcome.  I typed up the Kemetic and the German, as well as my translations - keep in mind that I'm not familiar at all with how the Kemetic should be written, I just copied it straight from the page as it was shown to me.
