Em hotep,

We're also currently discussing the 42 Purifications at the weekly Thursday Fellowship discussion group. We just discussed this particular one a few days ago :)

So... I'll try to continue this.

Purification #34
Hail You-Who-Leaves-Nothing-Out, coming forth from Djedu, I do not revile authority.

(in another edition I have of the purifications it is said to be "O thou who lets none survive, who came forth from Busiris, I have not reviled (the king).")

I confess I don't know who is this confession talking to, maybe to Wesir himself (Not leaving nothing out... of the duat?), but the meaning of this is very clear to me: Respect those who you must respect and follow the laws you should follow - all in Ma'at.

From here, a possibility:

Quote
Assessor God 35 (human-headed)
O Temsep who came forth from Busiris
Spell 125 (Assessor God 35)
O Thou Who Lets None Survive who came forth from Busiris, I have not reviled [the King].

Could Temsep be the deity in question? Or is that a title for another?

I will continue these shortly. I only go to the next one when Netjer inspires me. This whole forum post is a very personal prayer that has encompassed years for me as I continue to commune with god, and I expect to continue for a few more or when Netjer chooses for me to complete it.

Purification #34
Hail You-Who-Leaves-Nothing-Out, coming forth from Djedu, I do not revile the Nisut.

As Lord of Judgement, Wesir is the Netjer who leaves nothing out. He judges all the dead. He is the first of all Nisuts and the one all Nisuts strive to be like. This purification also calls upon Wesir as the Lord of Djedu (also known as Busiris in the Western Delta). This was one of the many burial places of Wesir, but a major cult center like Abdju. However Djedu is most closely linked to Nedit, the place where it is said Wesir drowned.

It is hard for those of us in Western civilization to understand monarchy or spiritual dominion. Asian religions are quite comfortable in the idea of the teacher ruler or guru. A teacher that has dominion over you in some way. However, in our culture not only is this an alien feature but very anathema. We see such rulership as something which cannot be allowed for us to feel fully independent.

Hemet teaches that she would consider this purification as protecting oneself from badmouthing anyone in authority. However, she goes on to say that we are to speak up in the face of abuses of power. To not do so would violate principles of Ma’at in themselves. However, if we think of this purification as protecting ourselves from those times where we have bucked those in authority because they didn’t do what we wanted or expected them to do, is not a reason to use heka against them. Remember from other purifications that speech is powerful, and even saying it to someone; you never thing it would get back to them and it does happen.

This purification teaches me that elders, authority figures, teachers, and parents all require respect as they give it. Cursing and viciousness only brings darkness to one’s own heart and slowly rots us from within. Sometimes even in the face of great suffering, compassion (even in its wrathful form) may be what is needed.

This purification calls on Wesir - who knows all our imperfections and will leave nothing from judgement, even those things we wish were forgotten – to respect those whom we place in authority and to speak out against injustices those in authority have made. For sometimes failure to speak out can be more harmful.

“Wesir, Lord of Djedu, Judge for whom all things are clear.
May my tongue never curse your office.
May my speech always speak of its’ praises.
May my tongue never be silent in the face of oppression and abuses of power.
May I speak out.
When I come and kneel before during my journey,
may all I have said and done, all I have not done or said, be expected and true.
May I be vindicated in the Hall of the Ma’ati, the place of Two Truths, and find home in the Field of Reeds.”
Son of Wesir | Heri-sesheta

"O my heart which I had from my mother,
Do not rise up agianst me as a witness in the presence of the Lord of Things;
Do not bring up anything agianst me in the presence of the Great God, Lord of the West."
