[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: So Netjeru in our daily life?

Em Hotep,

Earthquakes in mythology are said to be Geb laughing. Not too sure about typhoons

Em Hotep,

This is my opinion

I would say Nut, separates the physical seen world from the spiritual unseen world and Geb gives the physical world form. I see Asar being lush nature and because of His death, nature changed from being constant to having seasons. Set is the harshness of nature, weather and natural disasters. Aset is gestation and birth of plants and animals and Nebethet is physical death. Khonsu and Ra are bonded as they are the Eyes of Atum, that light up the darkness.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Does Apep have any modern relevance?
« on: January 18, 2015, 05:35:35 am »
Em Hotep,

I see A-pep as a personified force, rather than an actual being, a lot like Ma'at being moral order. I see A-pep as literal nothingness, which is hard to think about since in our world, there is always something. I see Nun as the personified pool of the unknown, the space outside our world/ solar system. We know there is something but we are not sure of its nature.

I think A-pep will always have relevance. I think creation is like a pane of glass. A-pep wants to destroy the glass so it turns back into sand. The large cracks are fixed or maintained by the Netjeru, the small cracks are fixed or maintained by humans. By maintaining or fixing the spread of the small cracks, makes it easier to fix or maintain the larger ones. We work together to stop the glass from shattering.

Too much order causes oppression, too much chaos causes anarchy, we need to find stability between the two, making sure the scale doesn't tip too far in one direction so that it falls over and A-pep takes over.

Em Hotep,

I don't have the money to buy books unfortunately, so my studies are completely internet based. I will have to start saving money. Thank you for trying though.

Em Hotep,

I am wanting a copy of the 42 Purifications for my personal practice and was checking to see if Budge translated the names on the right lines. I found that Khemi which he has put as Overthrower, doesn;t translate well into the dictionary I looked in, it says that 'xmy' means sandfly. I am checking on here to see if I am right or just missing something

Em Hotep,

I am using Budge's translation, but I know his words are sometimes wrong, so I have been double checking them against Mark Vygus Dictionary and where the word for overthrow is "skhr"

http://www.sacred-texts.com/egy/efl/efl06.htm this is the translation I am using

Working on a version of the 42 Purifications and the word is 'Khemi', is mentioned to be word for 'over-thrower' but I wanted to check myself, I can not find anything concrete, the closest transliteration I can find is 'xmy' which means 'sandfly'

Any help will be must appreciated

Em Hotep,

I have worked with Bast for a long time, she would show me an image of a rainbow python with ram horns. The only thing I found was related to the Aboriginal God. Still trying to work out what it means, it has being with me for a while. I just did a quick search for you and found this, (hope it is useful and you haven't seen it before)

For my study notes, wondering what the Kemetic word for prayer is?

Thank you

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: The "Eye of Heru" concept
« on: January 08, 2015, 04:17:27 am »
Em Hotep,

I only have limited access to literature, so from Samuel Mercer's translation of the Pyramid Texts

Utterance 29

To say: O N., I have come, I have brought to thee the eye of Horus, that thou mayest equip thy face with it, that it may purify thee, that its odour may (come) to thee. The odour of the eye of Horus is for N.; it drives away thy sweat. It defends thee against the violence (?) of the arm of Set...


From this I have a few theories, on what it may mean (obviously this is an outdated translation but it is all I have to work with at the moment)

Equip thy face with it -This may indicate that the deceased is blind, so Heru offers his eye as the means of sight within the Duat
That is may purify thee- Cleanse the decease in some way, possibly of past transgressions
That its odour may (come) to thee- I have seen extracts of other versions that label 'odour' as 'perfume'.
It drives away thy sweat- nervousness? the need to be confident and assertive, possibly to pass through the gates, or simply the heat of the place, causing the king to sweat and smell, which could be considered not particularly kingly
defends against the violence of the arm of Set- may mean the violent arm of Set, the odour of the eye is a protective substance that drives away anything 'negative'.

Going to follow this thread, seems very interesting

Doing some research on Nut. Does Nut means sky?

 I thought that was 'pt'.
