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.

"The function of Seth as lord of foreign countries may be as old as
the myth of the conflict and reconciliation of Horus and Seth.
Seth is the other one opposite Horus, the royal god of Egypt. 4)
It was already pointed out that the pharaoh Sekhemib of the 2nd
dynasty may have taken the Seth name of Peribsen because his
power extended beyond the confines of Egypt, as appears from his
epithet "conqueror of Asia" ( [words that couldn't be transcribed]).
In this connection, though, one might also think of a more
historical explanation of this function of Seth. The Egyptian Hathor
was brought into relation with foreign countries. She is "mistress of
Byblos" 5) and since the M.K. was worshipped abroad in a temple
on the Sinai. 6)" (Te Velde, Seth, God of Confusion, page 110)

 Distant mining towns were centers of worship of Hethert, "Mistress of Turquoise".  "The temple at Serabit el-Khadim was a state foundation dedicated to Hathor, Lady of Mefkat.  It was used by Egyptian turquoise-mining expeditions during the Middle and New Kingdoms" (Geraldine Pinch, Votive Offering to Hathor, page 38).

Paheri's 18th Dynasty tomb at El-Kab has a relatively lengthy prayer for offerings. Lichtheim describes it, the "back wall of the main hall of his tomb was given the shape of a round-topped stela with a niche in its center. The niche was filled by three seated statues, and the surface of the stela was inscribed in horizontal lines with a text that begins in the rounded top and continues on the right and left sides of the niche. This is a mortuary text consisting of four parts: (1) the traditional prayer for offerings..."((Ancient Egyptian Literature: Volume II: The New Kingdom, by Miriam Lichtheim, (University of California Press 2006), page 16)

Part of that prayer has the following:
"Hathor, mistress of the desert (foreign lands)
Strong of heart among the gods;
(And) Ptah-Sokar, lord of Shetyt (the Secret Chamber)"

With this information, I could take to the web and hunt photos. Bruce Allardice has the most legible photo, while Osirisnet has a line image with the glyphs). Between the two, I was able to make out the hieroglyphs:

There's quite a few of us "Set-kids" out here, RexiBeck!  Set may be about the 'tough love', but he's also about being proud of us when we overcome our challenges!

Em hotep, Rev. Maretemheqat and everyone else!

Thank you so much for exploring this worthy topic, sure to benefit all of us.

I give gratitude to Set for helping me to find the magic within myself when a loved one died.  His loud call was unmistakable, and I soon found myself growing stronger.  He's always there, encouraging me to be brave (even though
sometimes I'm not very brave, :) )

I give thanks to Hethert for all the beauty and joy in my life.  I am thankful for good music.  I am thankful for the sources of culture in my life, blessings to all the artists who are responsible for its creation. I am thankful for all the love in my life, a good partner with whom I've grown over the years, who fully supports (and shares!) my interests (and is a good cook), and for good friends and laughter.

I give thanks to Ptah-Sokar-Wesir for helping me to find peace within myself.  Okay, I don't always succeed, :), but that is part of the learning process.  Also, I'm grateful to Him for enjoying my own creative efforts. 

I give thanks to Djehuty for my curiousity (or is it Set that encourages my curiousity?)  Maybe they both do.  I am grateful for all the benefits I've had from scientific discoveries and scientific invention. I'm sure without some medical advancements, I'd have died nearly twenty years ago of that stone-filled gallbladder. (May Ma'at guide those inventors to create wise products that help and not hurt our fragile ecosystem!)

I give thanks to Heru-Wer for the material benefits I've had through out the years.  Although I'm not rich, I'm certainly well off compared to many in the world.

I find I am happier when I take time to consider all that I'm grateful for.  Gratitude can be a form of Heka that opens the gateway to receive more good things (not that I'm looking to the Netjeru with "gimme-gimme-gimme" on my mind, well I _TRY_ not to, don't always succeed :) )  I think all the Netjeru (just like people), respond well to gratitude.

Senebty, everyone!


Nekhtet, Rexibeck and Slade!
