Question for Reflection

What teaching(s) did you learn in this lesson do you need to reflect on more or start to apply or work more diligently on implementing on your personality, mentally, emotionally, metaphysically or otherwise to emulate human lady Aset on her path?

In this lesson, I was drawn to Lady Aset’s having as Sebai states “strong khak ab”. I am beginning, to ‘get it’, to experience why this is necessary in building the spiritual strength required to form my personality into the taffy shepsy, I am now more able to watch certain agitating thoughts go by like clouds by applying the wisdom philosophy and I am surprised at times that they just leave on their own! then I realized its only my ‘ego’ that enjoy holding on to them because my ‘spirit’ sure don’t. Being less distracted by them and in control of myself is more effective because I have also chosen the path of “the true name of Ra” and wish to live my life accordingly, and as a bonus, less distraction leaves me with an abundance of energy. I however understand that until I reach the goal, which is knowing of the true name of Ra, in essence, knowledge of Self, these are mere stepping stones and not victories so I’m careful not to delude myself. So, until I reach this auspicious goal, I wish to emulate Lady Aset by being vigilant and not letting the illusoriness of ‘nature’ distract me or suck me back in but to remain steadfast, to continue to increase my capacity for repudiation, to renounce the world and to relinquish worldly ideas through lady Aset’s example of strong khak ab, antet begag and anchen.
