Book Report Assignment Pgs. 34-35 “What does it mean to live by Truth? What does it mean to face the truth?” of EM Vol. 3 The Priests and Priestesses of Ancient Egypt

How very timely to review these two very important pages that contained numerous genuine examples of “truth.” The very first line states, “A successful Neterian aspirant must learn the art of living by truth.” The “art” of living by truth is being in alignment with Maat principles, living an ethically conscious life by upholding truth, pursuing the profound meaning of the purpose of life through integral practice of Shedy. In today’s society, it is extremely hard to find truth. One needs to be vigilant and use their discerning principle and critical thinking to truly examine what is being shared by media, family, friends, authority figures etc. So how does one go about living by truth?

Sebai Maa shared a precept of Maat “I have not stopped-up my ears against the words of right and wrong.” He has allowed the truth to flow to those with ears that are willing to listen and heed the truth, that at times is not very comfortable to hear, through the newly created Signal Discussion groups. But that is the first step, listening as the teachings of the Temple of Aset disclose to us.

Another example Sebai Maa shared was “Living by truth simply means adopting a way of life that is predicated upon the idea that reality is good, and delusion is not.” By using our discerning principle, we once again enforce how we can determine what is reality and what is delusion. Delusion is allowing our thoughts, feelings, desires to impel/compel our decisions, then Ego has full reign and is quite content in that role. Delusion was another topic in the Discussion group that was impressed upon us. So, deep reflection is also necessary. When something is abidingly true then that is reality. That is where one has reflected upon the abiding reality and is capable of living by that truth.

The term “sug-mit” translated to “foolish silly” can be applied as an example of those with complexes of the mind that believe in their worldly appearance, attainments, or perceptions by others. If one does not realize “WHO” they truly are, their Divine Nature then they seek approval of others to fulfill them. When one realizes the “truth” of their Divine Nature, that is all there is to be known, then one can be content and be of assistance to humanity despite the degradation around them.
