TTOA Lesson 7 Reading Assignment

Which Hieroglyphic term covered in this lesson was most captivating to you personally and why?

The last part of verse 50 and most of 51 captured my attention in this lesson “atef-a mut-a ren-a amun – set m khat-a” meaning “father mine, mother mine name mine hidden it in body mine” and contextually translated as “it was spoken by may father and my mother, my name and it was hidden in my constitution, my very being itself”. Ra is now saying his “true name (essence)” is hidden within his body. The hieroglyph of “amun” I found to be very powerful and the essential word in this verse. I understand this as that there is more, beyond Ra’s body (creation) that is hidden and must be discovered. Aset is showing us the way to that discovery, but it is up to us to activate the desire, intensity and endurance that she exampled for us to access the same goal.
