Ma'at in everyday life
« on: August 02, 2020, 08:52:42 am »
So the oracle talked a lot about doing Ma'at to pacify and appease the eye. And while I do have one idea, writing to imprisoned antifa, I don't really have other ideas for bringing Ma'at into my everyday life. I was wondering if we could swap ideas.

For me doing Ma’at is to share my love and joy with everyone I interact with throughout the day. Sometimes I feel we get caught up in grand gestures (which is still good!) that we forget about the little things.

If I didn’t have my little I would have joined with the BLM protests, but instead I pray for their health and safety

And that's a very good approach.
We always want to to the big things, but wanting to do big things, can keep us from doing things at all.
Little things add up...offer your seat in the train, offer to help someone with something, make someone laugh when they have a bad day...etc.
Sometimes what we think of as a little gesture can mean the world to someone

Yes. I love the little things.  I agree.

I like this essay by an independent Kemetic as an illustration of ma'at: Shopping Cart Theology.

I was thinking about joining/supporting a fact checking group, start/continue studying about social issues, these kind of things. I really like your idea, btw.

But as Karriaina said, the little things also matter. Paying attention to our words and actions feels like a good way to start.
