Em Hotep Emiti!

We haven't met before but I'm happy to celebrate your return :)
As someone who is "newer" (idk if I count as new anymore haha), it's always nice to see the paths of those before us.

Welcome Back!

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Prayers for emotional relief
« on: February 25, 2020, 07:54:32 am »

Hello family,

I have been lurking quite a bit since Wesir's Mysteries (which I resolved myself to not doing >:o), and this is because my emotions have not been playing fair recently. I have dealt with trauma and depressive feelings in the past which I think I handled well, however I can't seem to shake this funk that I'm in now. There's no reason I can find within myself and my life is currently considerably easier than it's been the past 12 months... all this to say, I would really, greatly appreciate some prayers.

Thank you to everyone who has been checking on/checking in with me.
I love you all, and wish you well <3

Tasedjebbast hit the nail on the head I think!

This is definitely a topic for discussion, and I hope to get more clarity from talking about it with more people and hearing more perspectives.

I hope I haven't made you more anxious! If I have, I apologize!

Em Hotep Setjezusenu!

If I may restate and summarize; I think the jist of what has been said is that while Ma'at is good, it is because order, justice, accountability etc is often correlated with what we find to be good(at this time). Think of how old our Netjer are. They have been around while and  what is morally good has changed quite a bit over the time humans have been on earth. So some things that are done to uphold Ma'at may be beyond our comprehension or somewhat misaligned with western thoughts of  what "goodness" is.

To offer some perspective, think of other cultures where justice is seen as a necessary evil. To wish justice into the world is akin to wishing a bad thing upon someone. In that mindset Ma'at would not be be good, but evil. This (in my opinion) is why people say Netjer can transcend or be above our ideas of what is good and evil. What we think of as good and evil changes every other half century!

However, many of us perceive Ma'at and Netjer to be good and do good. In fact, I feel as though we should challenge our ideas of what we think good and evil are in general. It is always a good idea to remember that these simple perceptions are based in Human thought and not necessarily a characteristic of Her/Them. Some things that are done in the name of balance may not be what we perceive to be good but ultimately uphold Ma'at and perpetuate this world.

I don't view Ma'at as the low bar, but as the highest bar. Upholding Ma'at is equivalent with supporting all of creation. It is fairly easy to conform to be good person in the way that society defines but that is only one side of the balance. It is easy to accept the things we like about ourselves and the ones that are socially acceptable, but can we also be accountable for all the negative effects we create as well?
This is why we always strive to uphold Ma'at but ultimately it is She who maintains and balances life, because we will never be able to see the full picture.

I hope this helps?!

I have been back and forth on my faith for the longest. As per always, the answer was somewhere in between.
Multiple things brought me to the house, but what brought me to Netjer? I'd have say my love of animals and nature have guided me through all my religious research. At first, I toyed around (in my head of course) with the idea of paganism, always feeling that there was some Night themed deity at the edge of my mind.  But when I went researching various religions with their various lords and gods I just kept coming back to Egypt and Ancient Egyptian Religion. Even my love of Greko-Roman mythos eventually brought me to Ancient Egypt.
So it is hard for me to say a single thing, feeling, event or deity brought me to the Netjer but I do know Khonsu, Nut and Yinepu were involved.

P.S- Your carving working made me forget myself with joy while at work. Truly incredible.

I have been writing poetry for many years now, and I have always been fond of the night sky. When I was going through mental troubles I always found the night to be calming and comfortable- I still prefer night to day. I like to think on those quiet nights when I felt like I was losing it, it was Nut's  quiet reassurance that gave me the strength to live another day.

It's fortunate you posted this! In the beginner chat I asked Nisut (AUS) about how I have made meditation an everyday practice for me and some oddities that happened during them- I had no idea it could be incorporated this way, so I am very interested in anything you come up with :)
