[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Subtle differences
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:25:12 am »
Em hotep,
I'm trying to get a better feeling for certain syncretized Names. Particularly the subtle differences between Bast-Mut, Hethert-Mut and Sekhmet-Mut. And also the differences between Ptah, Ptah-Sokar and Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. I was wondering if anyone that works with these Names could tell me the kind of nuances they get from Them?

Em hotep,
Wow. I just learned a lot. Like a lot, a lot. Wow. Thank you for bringing this up. This is very fascinating to me. I'm always curious about other cultures and/or religions. And especially the origins of a religion.

Em hotep,

I am very glad to see this thread. I recently started working on an Oracle deck and this is something I struggled with. In the end I decided to use apep in the deck. I did make a point of striking out both the name and the image, as to not give it more power. I think, for my own deck at least, it was a necessary decision. Nothing else is quite like it and it was really needed in my deck.  I'm still working on the deck though, so who knows.

Em hotep Gleb,

May I ask why tarot cards scare you?

While its not ancient, I'm currently working on making a Kemetic themed oracle deck. It's beginning to look like I'll be having them printed up and the whole nine yards. Anyway, sorry to derail your thread.


Em hotep,

I'm interested in this concept of "literally dead Gods"?
I thought the only God who could experience death was Wesir and that makes Him unique among the Netjeru... Is this understanding incorrect? Or is this subject a little more complicated?


Em hotep,

I get the feeling that how Netjer views would be dependent on how society views it. I don't think that entirely influences how Netjer looks at cannabis use. I think we have to look at substance use in the framework of ma'at. Does it influence your behavior negatively? We already know that the laws in your area allow for its use. Could the negative feelings you're having be lingering guilt from prohibition? I don't think Netjer would look down on substance use unless it was causing a problem in your life. I think Netjer is more tolerant than we could imagine. Humans are rather judgmental creatures. Ultimately what you do is on you. I doubt that the powers that be really care about much as far as our actions go. (It's all about compassion, but that's another thread.)

I would try to ease into if it's mostly anxiety for anxiety's sake. Nonbelievers tend to be more tolerant of believers than other believers are of each other. In general, unless you get the militant atheist types. But if your grandfather was that type you would've probably long known that. That he brought up the fact that he doesn't believe in god to you implies that he trusts you. That is a hard admission to make for most people. Especially so for older folks who grew up when that was not okay. Just start small. Point out how you love the Egyptian god [insert your favorite Netjer here], see what he says. Gauge his reaction. It should be quite telling. That should give you an idea how to proceed.

So... Your grandfather is a nonbeliever? Do you have any reason to be anxious? Or is this anxiety for anxiety's sake? It might make a difference in how you want to approach the subject.

Em hotep and welcome,
Did you enjoy the beginners class?

I wish I could do the same, but, honestly, I have a hard enough time eating as it is. But I really respect people who go that extra step to find out what happens to their food. Thank you for your input. People like you are the best examples in my opinion.

Not exactly the same but I feel as though my decision to avoid animal testing is in a similar vein. I do eat meat, so, obviously its not the same. I can't justify animal testing whereas eating meat is a bit different. But I do avoid products that have been tested on animals because of my sense of ma'at. Eating is necessary. Torturing animals is not. (I know we have issues with factory farming methods, but that's another discussion.) There is no real, good reason to test products meant for humans on other animals. But anyway. I'm not trying to harp and I understand people have numerous reasons for their decisions. But I feel like it was one decision I could make so I did.

The class is actually very interesting and kind of fun. Or it was for me at least, but I love learning new things.
