Which hieroglyphic term covered in this lesson was most captivating to you personally and why?

I appreciate the Haity (weeping sisters) hieroglyphic because I am drawn to the concept of Arati and the balancing of the higher and lower self (earthly/heavenly, time and space identification/divine Saa). Haity serves as a call of remembrance, to devotion, divine love and the Divine Akhu. It is similarly an utterance of lamentation of life toils, affecting an illusory loss of divine spirit.

Sebai notes that as Arati goddesses have the power to send the call for a return of spiritual power, Nebehet (via purified body), and Aset (via purified mind/intuition). This may be employed as a formula to reestablish Saa, or divine wisdom/truth, to bring Asar (divine soul) to its rightful place, to attain Nehast. Sebai alludes, “Knowledge derived from the senses is illusory, true knowledge can only come from the understanding of the union of opposites {Hymns to Amun, p. 231}. This is the path of Asetian wisdom, via Khak ab, Anteg begag and An chen. Haity serves as a glyph that can invoke remembrance of the power within that may be cultivated/invoked to reestablish divine truth. Dua for your attention,
