Bastu Akhu

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

I was drawn to a few terms in this lesson, namely “ren a amum” and “atef – a mut a” but “mes – a n mery” which means “birthing-me of desire”, caused me to pause and ponder, so it’s my chosen hieroglyphic term for this lesson.

I was thinking about the glyph in the context of my own desires of my own heart (love and hate) which I gather is what gave birth to my own illusory existence and wondered how this relates or differ from the ‘absolute’ birthing or projecting ‘Ra’ which includes my illusory self? I am gathering that because I am essentially one with the absolute, there is no such thing as ‘separate’ hearts, there is only ‘one heart’, one true essence, which gets lost through my identification with the ego personality, which is part of the illusion, so in essence getting caught up or lost in the illusion. I also reflected on the organ of the heart and what it means metaphysically in the context of being a part of Ra’s body. Sebai, could you please augment my attempted understanding of this term? Dua.
