1) I would describe my knowledge of religion and philosophy as traditional and fundamental.

3) My most important need is to accomplish the three levels of aspirants.
4) I started my spiritual journey in spirituality as a Muslim believing that there is only one god who name was Allah. I tried to follow the myths and rituals but always felt something missing. I would pray and go through the motions, listening to the sermons, but once I left the mosque there was an emptiness. I then started studying Afrocentric literature and going to meetings. I heard everyone speak from Dr. Ben to Dr. Anthony Browder, those meetings were uplifting but still my spirit was missing something. Then I became involved in the Kemet Organization but could not grasps the concept of the gods and goddesses. I was so confused. I fell back into society until I picked up the book The Kemetic Tree of Life. It sparked a light off in my mind and everything started to come together. I started understanding the concept of the gods and goddesses. I’m still in the learning stages but now I can see a path to what I’ve been searching for, through Shetaut Neter and the Shedy disciplines, and authentic spiritual path.
