[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: prayer beads
« on: November 19, 2010, 01:07:06 pm »
Perhaps this will inspire you. I had a set of Goddess prayer beads for the Greek triads of Maiden, mother, and crone Goddesses. It was structured like a rosary. The first bead was a Great Goddess prayer. I then had four beads for the four elements. As it went into the necklace like loop, the first bead was the new moon, which I said a prayer for then meditated upon as I moved through the next 12 beads. I then had 9 beads separated by three Goddess beads (12 beads total in 3 sets of 1 goddess bead and 3 prayer beads). After that was the full moon, and I repeated the same process with the Mother and Crone beads. I then had a heart bead to pray for ma'at in my heart, a dark of the moon bead to remind me that the end is just the start of a new beginning, and then 4 beads for the 4 winds to cleanse my heart/mind, etc. I then returned to the Great Goddess bead and repeated that prayer. At the end, where the cross would have been on a rosary was an ankh, and with that I prayed for long life and rebirth for all those I loved and those who had passed on.

Sorry if this post is lengthy. If you want more info on it, feel free to PM me. I figure this layout can be adapted for Kemetic use (i.e. Netjer instead of the Great Goddess). Syncretisms, Aspected Gods and Gods that were worshipped in a particular locality or as a family might work well as a replacement for certain bits of the prayer layout.

I think the main idea is to make it your own, so that it does what you want it to do to connect with your gods.

And with that, I'll shut up XD

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / IRC Beginner's chat question
« on: November 09, 2010, 12:58:57 pm »
I'd like to get the IRC for beginner's chat, but I can't figure out how to get it. I usually use Yahoo, MSN, Xfire, AIM, or any combination of those, but I didn't know if there was a particular program used. If there is, how do I get to it? The email sent out about it wasn't particularly clear on what program is used and how to actually access the beginner's chat.

Anyone care to explain it in more detail? I'm entirely lost.

PS: Sorry if this isn't really religious Q&A. Hopefully it's still considered on topic.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: A Question on Temples
« on: November 06, 2010, 08:02:40 am »
In regards to Hehi's comment that we would need to be well represented, I think gathering an immense amount of people would actually transform Kemetic Orthodoxy as we know it into what Imsetra_Imsety had in mind, at least theoretically. Take this for instance: suppose we gained a million new shemsu from each the US, Britain, Sweden, Various Latin American Countries, and other European Countries. Theoretically that would be about 5 million people who show up out of nowhere, most of them with previously Christian beliefs. Even if they went through proper training and honestly wanted to become shemsu, I feel that within such a large number of people, the desire for a physical ritual space (temple) might become an overwhelming majority. In that situation, it would obviously be up to Hemet (AUS) and the priests to organize and or strictly state whether or not KO would allow another 5,000 (random guess here o.o) or more temples to be erected to be able to attend to such a mass of shemsu. In addition, the desire for group meetings and worship would probably grow very strong as well. I think in  a situation where our numbers GREATLY exceed the numbers we have now, multiple temples could become a reality. Still, I would have to say it is wholly theoretical and quite improbable. As it stands, I would suggest it is a possibility but little more than that.

Personally, as a solitary Wiccan, I still seek the company of other practitioners, but I have failed to find any I can blend well with. If public group worship within KO was available, I would be all for it, be it weekly, monthly, seasonally, or what have you. Right now with our numbers I figure that isn't a realistic possibility, and I believe that is probably why things are the way they are. Regardless, the Gods will get the style of worship that They want, and we'll just have to keep our solitary worship in our own time.

I just realized there were 8 pages to this thread. I'm sure someone must have said it earlier, so sorry if my question was a repeat.

Random question that is probably answered in another thread but...

what is fedw?

As it is confusingly explained   here, depending on how light is measured, it can be either a set of particles or a set of waves. In the same respect, there are theories in quantum physics vaguely explained here says that we take all possible routes simultaneously. So, using the same idea that nature itself has suggested, do you all believe that this is a somewhat scientific way to explain how all the creation stories can conflict and yet all be true?

The idea is that you take all routes but always end up at the same end, so it doesn't really matter how you got there. In the same way, all the creation stories result in the creation of the world.

What do you guys think about this? Make sense? Am I going in the wrong direction entirely? :)

LOL There are quite a few people who really SHOULD be sterilized IMO o.o but of course free will and rights and dignity and blah blah blah...

Point is, humans have the ability to keep it in their pants and make a conscious decision as to when they want children. Animals don't have that choice, so we have to help make that choice for them. I believe that animals are people too; but like children, the parent is responsible to do what is best for their pets as if they were children.

Thank you! I just now saw this thread and it makes it really easy to find anything and everything about a name, or to see if a name hasn't been mentioned yet :3 This is very helpful.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Let's talk about Ptah!
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:40:06 am »
From what I've gotten by reading through this thread, it seems Ptah is a lot like Calvin Coolidge was. XD

He never spoke much, but when he did he had something you needed to hear. It makes me think that sometimes only a few words need to be spoken in order to get the point across. I liked the haiku reference because it really put this concept in a realistic perspective.

So I guess I would want to talk to Ptah for help with my speech class? It's been stressing me out beyond comprehension, and to have someone at least be there when I'm working on it would be a relief.

What are the difference and what are their significance? I know they are important, I just don't know why.
