Reply To: Teachings of Temple of Aset Lesson 9 Discussion Forum



“What teachings did you learn in this lesson do you need to reflect on more or start or start to to apply or work more diligently on implementing on your personality, mentally, emotionally, metaphysically, or otherwise to emulate human Lady Aset on her path?”

The above question is readily answered in that I need to work more diligently on being as relentless as human Lady Aset in the pursuit of “Djed n-a ren-a k?,” while there is still time to do so in this very lifetime. This should be the driving force in the spiritual aspirant’s life vs. “aba n ab” (pursuing one’s heart’s desires). Personally, this would mean stepping up the intensity of the metaphysical aspects through increased meditation and, in particular, focusing on “arat sekhem,” the serpent life force that resides within. This raising of the Taffy Shepsy would be in control of the mental and emotional aspects of the personality, that so often can derail the best of intentions in one’s spiritual growth.

Being relentless also means that if one does get derailed in their spiritual aspiration, not to give up but, rather, act with “an chen” (not stopping) and getting back on the spiritual track without harshly judging oneself. Mistakes along the way are inevitable. What I have gained from the profound teaching of the Scriptures of Aset and Ra is that, as part of the Creation of Ra, our worldly personality is also part of the illusion which must be shattered.

This is why I keep referring to the quote from verses 80-81: “ankh za demu tu her ren-f.” (“There is life to one who affirms their personality’s name.”) This, of course, is not the name given at the hour of worldly birth, or even the spiritual name given as an aspirant, but our true name beyond time and space that must be revealed to attain Nehast (Enlightenment).
