Book Report Assignment for Pages 36-38 of EM Vol. 3 The Priests and Priestesses of Ancient Egypt

Continuing with the theme of following Truth we covered the aspect of “Cognitive Dissonance”- meaning a person is unable to face the truth that conflicts with previously held notions. Sebai compared this to the ancient teaching of stopping the ears against the words of right and wrong. I find this to be a prevalent issue in today’s society, especially in light of the injustice of forced inoculations, jab or job mentality, lock downs, etc.

There was discussion during this meeting about accommodation/assimilation and integration which led to the topic of compelling Aryu which is a significant feature in cognitive dissonance. The strength of one’s will power must be allowed to gain the edge to help overcome the Aryu. Believing in one’s existence as a particular person living in a certain country, following its discordant beliefs and manipulations; or just going along with what everyone else is doing so as to “fit in or comply” is also cognitive dissonance, not wanting to accept the real truth of situations so as to be comfortable. In our Sage Amenemopet reviews we have discussed the liability of being too comfortable.

There needs to be a certain level of maturity to gain the understanding of higher truth otherwise one becomes stuck in the cycle horizontal movement, believing in their “feelings, senses, handed down beliefs” rather than moving upwards vertically with righteousness and Absolute Truth, in their spiritual evolution. As Sage Amenemopet shares “Sau mdj hi tu er Neberdjer” – keeping aware of Neberdjer with deliberate effort. This deliberate effort implies one needs to apply oneself to overcome cognitive dissonance. Certainly, this sounds easier said than done. However, we have resources available for us to use. We know that integral Shedy practice is key. Staying close the the Neteru through devotion and right action. Keeping good association and of course Rech/Wisdom by listening, reflecting and meditating on the teachings being brought forth from the Sages through Sebai Maa and Seba Dja. If one applies themselves with this deliberate effort, utilizing the implements available to know their true Self then this allows greater understanding, and movement towards the revered West is imminent.

Dua to the Neteru, Hemu and ALL.
