[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Question regarding Predestination

As the Neters are Functions rather than Persons (in the way Greek gods are ‘persons’ having ‘personalities’) the Neters via their function/characteristics most closely embodied in one’s chart color or drive one’s life.

i don’t think this is true at all?

fwiw, Gezausenu, that image of Sekhmet really spoke to me, as a former EMT and a daughter of Sekhmet-Mut.

i'd like to put something for you in my pregnancy shrine, if you wouldn't mind - would you PM me either your full name or let me know a color or gemstone or something that you'd like to represent you?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Self harm and ritual purity?

em hotep!

i don't think They blame us for things that are out of our control. do They enjoy it when we hurt ourselves? no, of course not. do They understand that sometimes it's the lesser of two evils? yes, i think They do. trying to minimize the harm you do to yourself is a good thing, but if you slip up, They get it. as regards burns and ritual purity specifically, my instinct is to think that it depends on whether the skin is broken and whether it hurts too badly for you to focus. but overall, i don't think you're going to be devoured, no.

they apparently consider themselves to be Gnostic Christians, so i don't think about them much :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Cats allowed to jump up on shrines?
« on: January 30, 2018, 04:35:39 pm »
my cat used to sit in front of my shrine all the time, but if she had jumped onto the actual shrine cloth, i would have repurified it afterwards. sometimes i hold my hedgehog over the shrine to say hello, but same deal - his feet don't touch the shrine, any more than mine do.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Yinepu
« on: November 25, 2017, 06:45:04 pm »
as i understand it, we use the spelling Yinepu here because that is likely (given the current pronunciation of coptic) how the transliteration Anpu would have been pronounced. do what makes you and Him happy, though!

I mean I don't think its required for KO. If you're practicing on your own, I can tell you for sure that Ahku veneration is optional. There are many kemetics I've talked with that don't include it as part of their practice, and that's okay! It's just a piece of the bigger picture.

beginners and above are required to have an akhu shrine, according to the bylaws. what you do there is, in general, your own business, but ancestors are a big part of our faith. this doesn't mean that you have to like specific dead people you know -- i'd be surprised if absolutely nowhere in history was there a dead person who liked you :)

AUS stands for "ankh, udja, seneb" = "life, prosperity, health" -- sort of like how Muslims put (pbuh) for "peace be upon him" after Muhammad's name.

Hemet is not one of the Netjeru -- she's the founder of our religion :)

CopticChristianity, Islam, and Judaism are the foundation for our Faith.

i'm curious as to what you mean by this? chronologically, kemetic polytheism predates all three of those, and theologically, there's not a whole lot we have in common, aside from the ancestor-related practices of the copts and egyptian muslims, which they got from kemetic polytheism, not the other way around. :)

einstein's work, supported by the michelson-morley experiment, rejected the necessity of aether.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Non-blood Akhu?
« on: May 28, 2017, 10:09:16 pm »
yes, our akhu can include people we weren't blood-related to :) we have temple akhu, and a lot of people have special relationships with kemetic akhu they met through museums, for example, and i have a rainbow fluorite angel in my akhu shrine for my queer "ancestors," as well as an ambulance for the people who died in my care as an EMT.

i don't understand, i guess -- why would you be able to undertake a rite of passage into a community before you took the class that told you what the community was all about?
