Aspirant Howard

Egyptian Mysteries Level 1, Lesson 20, Reading Assignment

1. Akhus are enlightened beings

2. Question: How should a spiritual aspirant think about the diet of the initiates as espoused by the temple of Aset and is it a realistic goal to be achieved?
Answer: According to this lesson’s reading, Plutarch, a student of the mysteries of Isis, reported that the initiates followed a strict diet made up of vegetables and fruits and abstained from particular kinds of food as well as indulgence of the carnal appetite. The end and aim is the attainment of the knowledge of the First and Chief Being, who alone is the object of the understanding of the mind; and this knowledge the goddesses invites us to pursue. The first qualification for serious aspiration is that you are convinced that you are an immortal being who is somehow mixed up with a temporal form (body). I believe that becoming one with Aset is possible. I am already Asar.
