[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: How private are you about your faith?
« on: December 26, 2015, 03:50:10 pm »
Em Hotep,

Saryt, I'm in a very similar position.

My parents are atheists, and although they know, they choose not to acknowledge it.

For everything else, with the exception of facebook where I have a separate filter for spirituality stuff which covers my paths, I don't actively show it, but I also don't hide it. My scarab often shows, I usually have an ankh somewhere on my body,  etc, but most people will usually just pass that by as part of my general oddness :-)

That said, although I don't explicitly hide it, it does seem to shock some friends when it comes up, probably for the reason that I don't feel the need to throw it around.

I remember reading about him in History classes when I was in high school, and being shown the video. His work still bring a tear to my eye, and is an inspiration for me.

Oh wow, that is totally gorgeous :-)

Sunsets and twilight are my favourite time of day.

Em Hotep, and Welcome Nikolai.

I find the versions on https://oi.uchicago.edu/research/publications/studies-ancient-oriental-civilization-saoc are a good start. They're spread across multiple volumes, and free to download.

You'll probably find some commentary by default, if only because there are multiple versions of the BotD, but I hope this helps.

Senebty,

Em Hotep,

All those that have stated they wish to stay on as Remetj have been set to Remetj. Those that requested more time, or have not stated a wish to continue have been set to guest access. If you think this is in error, please email the teachers or Hemet.

Senebty,

Em Hotep,

Scarab beetles aren't the only one.

Click beetles are associated with Nit, and are actually one of her earliest symbols, whether by itself or face to face on a standard crossed by arrows.

See the following for example: http://www.globalegyptianmuseum.org/detail.aspx?id=1000

There are other links that may be historically attested.

Also, don't discount your own links. Often how we interpret our world around us will influence how we see Netjer.

For example, due to the adult dragonfly's usually short life cycle, they were often associated with death and rebirth, so I often associate them with Ra or Wesir. :-)  This may not have occurred in history, but I personally hold the association.

I hope this helps!

Senebty,

« on: October 18, 2015, 01:17:18 pm »
Em Hotep,

As a beloved of Bast, I don't get to 'feel' her that much, whether in shrine or elsewhere. I think I connect more with Her subconsciously when I'm doing activities, especially music. It's from there where I begin to feel a true joy which I associate with her :-)

Senebty,
