This is a good detailed rendition of this section of the scripture and the wisdom presented in the lecture.
Some additional insight may be gained from your statement:
“Aset rejected Remteju, the path of lower mysteries. “
There is another word for this that is used mostly in the eastern traditions such as Hinduism. The term is “renunciation”. She renounced the path of humans, gods, and sages. To renounce means to “reject, abandon, forsake, leave, refuse, repudiate, disown, quit, etc.”
The relinquishment is born of knowledge and reflection and not just empty disgust, or disappointment, however. She reflected deeply on these issues as reasoned that those other paths are little compared to the majesty of knowing the transcendental nature of Ra. Thus an avid aspirant should try to understand and follow the path laid out by Aset but not blindly but rather thoughtfully and with full volition.
Capacity to exercise true volition comes when there is sufficient maturity in the personality, here defined, as sufficient self-control and ability to resist the impelling or compelling impetus from aryu stored in the unconscious. If there is ability to resist acting on impulses or compelling pressures from the unconscious then there will be sufficient capacity to reason, free from those influences, and make a decision that is based on truth instead of personal distorted mind pressured by desires or fears or ignorance, etc.
Such a person who can make decisions on this basis may be considered a true human being and not a slave to sentimental attachments or emotions and desires. Aset was such a person when she arrived at the beginning of this teaching and hers is the example par-excellence of the idea to be exemplified and followed to reach the desired goal of discovering the Divine Name.
