Reply to Asar Djehuti-Mes Lesson # 18 Amenomopet Lecture posting #22064

The written assignment presented by Asar Djehuti-Mes on Lesson #18, the final lecture by Sebai Maa in the Sage Amenomopet Wisdom series, highlighted important points for the advanced initiate and the beginning student on the spiritual path.

First, it was made clear that it is incumbent for one to be vigilant in governing what comes forth in the way of speech because, as was stated, it is “the tongue that guides the event’s of one’s life.” Such a poignant statement further clarifies that words are a reflection of aryu spoken through the subconscious mind. Thus, the ungoverned tongue will be guided by ary impressions that are led by the ego, resulting in egoistic actions. Being cognizant of this simple truth is a powerful weapon against the cunning of the ego personality to create further entanglements of aryu, and the false notion that we are ever in control of our speech. As Sebai Maa expressed in the lecture, “human self will and or self determination are an illusion.”

The teaching of the “silent” personality by Sage Amenomopet becomes relevant, not necessarily due to no words spoken, but because of the “coolness” (ger) of such a personality. It is the “heated” personality (shemm) by contrast that is easily ignited by anger, which increases aryu on the personal level and, thereby, effects others with their angry outbursts. Therefore, it is recommended that one should avoid the heated personality, by Sage Amenomopet, lest one become infected with their shemm.

Another important point expressed in this assignment posting is the “mind riddled with blood and beer.” This is, of course, a metaphor for being in a state of dullness or stupor referred to as “setdjerau,” according to the lecture. It very neatly ties in the Myth of Hetheru and Djehuti, wherein, in Her state of ignorance, Hetheru was given “setdjert”–a concoction of blood and beer mixed with mandrake. We are as if likened to Hetheru in our ignorance of blood and beer stupor, until mandrake releases us from dullness into lucidity. Asar Djehuti-Mes writes, “Mandrake ‘spiritual practice’ removes negative ariu thereby shedding the egoism of the personality.” It is in this way, Sebai Maa explains, “rough edges are carved away,” and this is referred to as “Menching.”

In summary, in addition to the pertinent points of governing our speech, maintaining a silent personality and a perennial spiritual practice to carve away the negative aryu, Asar Djehuti-Mes makes the imperative assertion, expressed in the lecture, that we need to understand that the mind and senses are illusory. This means that any thoughts or senses we have of ourselves are all illusory. There is only Neberdjer, and it is awareness of Neberdjer that we are to be devoted. Such is a process that takes practice through Mindful Meditation of Sau Neberdjer (Awareness of Neberdjer). Once this awareness of awareness itself is mastered one continuously exists in Anrutef (Neberdjer) consciousness. An image was presented in one of the lecture PowerPoint slides of a business man in a suit with the readily recognizable head of Tutankhamun to visualize the concept of living in a state of Anrutef awareness while living in the world. Regardless of what is occurring in the world of time and space, we are the Royal personality aware of Neberdjer at all times. This assignment was, indeed, a well written and accurate representation of the teachings of Sage Amenomopet, presented by Sebai Maa’s lecture of Lesson #18.
