The mother of all books is Egyptian Yoga Volume One. If you are coming from Christianity it will give you a better understanding. These describes me perfectly. I am coming out of Christianity and I am new to all these terms and thought processes.
In my home I have a alter. I have a candle burning during mediation, I have incense burning, I am facing the East, and I have the water. In the book it had a picture and an Ankh. Should I have these items also? Should I use Charka stones?
When will I know that I am correctly meditating? Normally I just feel a sense of peace and I am sometimes drained afterwards.
When referring to the Kemetic Diet, is this the same as a vegan diet? Is this something a person has to gradually work themselves into or should it be simply quit eating meats because this is a religion and that’s one of the requirements.
When I started learning about Kemetic Egyptian people referred to it as spirituality? Is that a misconception?

Culture of self-importance. The reality of greed, excess, and culture of synthetic fabrications.
The three most important aspects that allow society to function are civilization, religion, and philosophy.
African culture does not denigrate the female imagine. African culture there is a balance between the male and female in all areas even spirituality and ruling. Both are seen as equals.

Culture is a mass and shows who you are and where you come from.

Culture is manufactured reality so you can relate to the world.
Once you know transcending culture then you know your higher self.

All roads lead to Kemet.
B. Most important and why
That we have turned into a culture of self-importance and greed. For me this was important because it touched a personal nerve. I have always been accustom to wearing name brand items and buying high end jewelry. Since I started studying Kemet, I have stopped my shopping sprees and concentrated more on my connecting emotionally with others, giving, and getting to know myself.
African culture does not denigrate the female imagine. African culture there is a balance between the male and female in areas is spirituality and ruling. Both are seen as equals. I thought this was important because before I started studying Kemet, I attending church regularly and even studied Theology. During those times it was often mentioned that the husband was the head of the house and the wife should obey anything the husband said.
It’s important to have an understanding of your culture. I think this is very important because if you do not know your culture you can allow other people’s expectations and desires for you to control your lifestyle. Meaning they basically decide how you are supposed to live, and what your beliefs systems should be. In addition your traditions.
The one human you spoke of who is responsible for creating everyone is this the same one person other religions speak of using different names?
