Reading “Initiation into Egyptian Yoga and Neterian Spirituality Workbook” (23-34)
Smai Taui (Tawi) is the union of the two lands: the higher and lower self. The lower aspects of the human are related to egoism, ignorance, and worldliness, while the higher aspects relate to that which is good to the human heart. The higher and lower self leads to non-duality, a singular consciousness—the qualifications of an aspirant. The initiate must desire to advance spiritually and seek out others who are advanced spiritually. One must put forth their effort to move away from ignorance and illusion and towards true wisdom. Although one can achieve universal consciousness without a qualified leader, suffering and reincarnations can still occur. However, special instructions from a spiritual guide are advisable. The ego can be tricky because it is egotistical, and there is a desire to fulfill basic desires with worldly pleasures. The beginning of this process involves inner purification.
