Welcome to the start of an amazing adventure with always new things to learn!


[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Kemetic Hymns

I felt a need to change the translation of Schiller's words.  One day, looking at Hethert's image, the 'eye' part of it seemed to grow very bold, while the rest faded. Something like this:

Hethert was saying to me she's an Eye of Ra, and her reign isn't "mild and gentle".  So I changed the words to "fair and mighty". :)


[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Why did you choose to worship at all?

Em Hotep!

This is a great question, Anomander!

The path of the magician "who doesn't do worship" perhaps stems from the artificial division of religion and magic.  This division is not present in the Kemetic path, as it came from the monotheistic religions which began in the Roman period and afterwards.

To not do worship seems a half-path to me.  As I worship the gods, so then my soul is fed as well.  Without this circular process, I am "out of the loop".  A soul that is not fed is a soul that doesn't have the "ka-strength" to do heka (aka "magic").  At least, that's the way it feels to me.  I do not "come into being" (or as many magicians spell it "Xeper") on my own merits alone.  I have "come into being" via the mercies of the gods, via the mercies of my Akhu, via the mercies of my many Sebau (my teachers), as well as what I do via my own Will.  Understanding this gives a sense of wholeness.

I don't "deny the validity of other faith-based religions".  The hidden ground of Divinity, (who I understand to be Amun) has many manifestations, as needed for each individual.  And I would say it's not so much a matter of "faith", but "experience".  My brief time of atheism ended one night when I was looking up at the stars.  A great sense of awe came over me as I knew a Great Power had gone into their formation.  In that moment, I _felt_ that power. 

Blessings to you as you sort out "the mysteries"!


Congratulations, "Child of Jackal", :) !


I'm quite connected with Hethert, Set and Ptah, so much emotion for them. <3 :)  I'm not quite so close to Djehuty or HeruWer, but I know their influences are there.  And I feel Wepwawet taking some interest too....

You welcome, Ibi!

You may wish to check the link again, I made a large print version.  It takes two sheets, but older eyes may appreciate it.  (I know my eyes need it.)

I sent for a Unitarian/Universalist hymnbook, and I was delighted to find the words to "Hymn to Joy" by Beethoven.  I thought the Goddess-oriented words were a new-age rewording.  But no, these are the ORIGINAL words which were written for this song, by Friedrich Schiller:

"Joy, thou goddess, fair immortal..."  Although it isn't specifically Kemetic, it says "Fashion's laws, indeed, may sever but thy magic joins again..." And "from the bud she lures the flower, suns from out their orbs of light..."  I think of the Wadj scepter Hethert and other Goddesses hold, representing the flourishing aspects which they nourish.

I think the copyright is "public domain", so I'll post a scan I made.

This also includes the original German lyrics.

Em Hotep, all!

(Congratulations, Cherry and Obsidian on your RPD!)

Regarding Set and singing, I pondered that today while doing Senut.  I looked at my icons, and thought, maybe I'm getting the "Please sing" more from Hethert, after all, she is the Goddess of singing and dance.  So I starting singing.  This time I dared to sing at full voice, and felt Set smiling.  It's the courage to sing BOLDLY which pleases Set! (Tears came to my eyes, I admit!)

As for Set and the "necessary destruction", yes I do feel prods from him when it's necessary to clear out the ugly "clutter" and 'rebuild' better!

The Netjeru will let you know whether a particular icon is suitable, or not.  Perhaps a 2-dimensional image can serve better than a 3-D one.  I find studying the ancient examples very helpful, not that we are limited to ancient models, of course!  :)


It's wonderful to know about Sir Nicholas, a true hero!  Thank you for sharing his fascinating story.

Blessings to his Ka!

Em Hotep, Abigail!

As for the Ap/p, you are right about the "devour the Universe and end all of existence".  However that entails a lot of "destruction".  But yes, the entity isn't a "God". 

As a "Set-kid", I can say your perception of Set is correct! :)  Dua Set!

Em Hotep!

I've not been very adventurous with singing, but there is one song I've adapted.

"Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With Ptah as our Grandpa,
Family all are we.
Let me walk with my sibling
In perfect harmony. . ."

I wrote the lyrics out on a bristol board, so I can have them to sing by.  While the tune is easy, my memory for lyrics is not what I'd like, so this works for me.

Cat Steven's song "Morning Has Broken" always reminds me of Zep Tepi.
