Book Report Assignment Pgs. 1-34 of EM Vol. 3 The Priests and Priestesses of Ancient Egypt

With these beginning factful pages, we are taken along a historical journey with timelines of known dynasties, origins of the first populace and carbon dating statistics of important monuments of the Ancient Egyptians. We also learned of the significance of the religion and philosophy in their lives and how it influenced other emerging subsequent religions. The teachings were held sacred, and the Sages, Priests and Priestesses shared only to those who were deemed qualified to understand and abide in them. Sebai Maa shared examples how many Greek knowledge seekers came to Ancient Egypt to learn and returned to their country with what they had absorbed.

In the Introduction section the question of “Who is Qualified to be Taught the Teachings?” is posed. This inquiry is key to the study of understanding human personalities and psychology that prospective clergy should employ. Sebai Maa shared a formula per se to assist in discerning that qualification. There needs to be a sufficient level of maturity, not just in age but in demeanor and intellectual capacity. Cognitive dissonance of one’s life experience, reflection, humility, assimilation, and accommodation of the teachings are all part of the process of the formula of evaluation. There will be personalities that learn of the teachings and seem so full of Shemsu Udja at first, but they cannot sustain it for many reasons but mostly due to Aryu, egoistic notions of duality as the abiding truth etc. They seek for knowledge and truth but living and abiding by that truth escapes them. There was discussion in the meeting about these individuals and how to interact with them and it brought back for me the teaching of Sage Amenemopet of the how the heated person is like a tree growing inside. It yearns for the sun but it cannot gain it fully as it is constricted. But a cool person is like a tree growing in a lush garden, accepting the sun, rain, nourishment to its roots in the soil so it flourishes.

Chap. 4 Vs. 9, 10 and 11
(9) As for the heated person in the temple, they are like a tree growing {indoors}:
A moment lasts its growth of {shoots) . Its end comes about in the woodshed;

(10) It is floated far from its place. The flame is its burial shroud.

The truly silent, who keeps apart, he is like a tree grown in a meadow. It greens, it doubles its yield,

(11) It stands in front, of its lord. Its fruit is sweet, its shade delightful, its end comes in the garden.

So, individuals who reject the truth are to be left alone and “let God.”
