Dua for the much appreciated introduction to the Kemetic word sefen-patience with the accompanying hieroglyph for the word. In addition to the phonetic spelling of the word is the icon of a face in profile with a concentrated steadfast gaze.
All of my life it has seemed that I have rushed headfirst into various pursuits, only to find dissatisfaction in the end, then on to the next endeavor. However, I have made a pointed effort not to make the same mistake in my spiritual aspiration because it is far too important to me to “get it right” in this very lifetime. Yet, at the same time I realize that if I live to be as old as my Mother at the time of her death, I have 21 years left. If I live to be as old as my Father at the time of his death even less than that. There are no guarantees that I will live to see another day of life in time and space and I have not yet reached my goal of Enlightenment. I try not to dwell in days numbered in the world of time and space but, rather, try to be concentrated and steadfast in my goal toward Nehast. If living daily with sefen and antet begag is the way to success, but life in time and space ends before fully realizing Enlightenment is one yet destined to suffer uhem ankh?
