Reply To: Teachings of Temple of Aset Lesson 1 Discussion Forum #2



In this posting there is a movement toward deep reflection, and in some ways, it is similar to a journal entry. You have even shared an “Update on Music Scene,” touching on some of your past disappointments with the music industry. There is a hint of pain in the tone of this posting.

In your statement:

“faith in the illusion is possibly frustration due to inability to manifest teachings in a practical reality.”

My suggestion to the above quote is not to try and fit the teachings into a practical “reality,” but fit what is practical into the teachings. The purpose of the Myth is to transcend the mundane and move one beyond the limitations of the world.

Another statement that caught my attention:

“true value leads one to the spiritual process—the rose blooms and releases fragrance even if no one is around
the chantress sings even if no one is in the room,
cds are available for purchase even if there is no one to buy
events are produced even if there is no one in attendance
this is what I am, not what I do.”

In your very poetic way, you have twice made the assertion “this is what I am, not what I do.” Though it may be in your worldly nature to sing as a chantress, due to lifetimes of past ariyu, it is NOT what you are. As an aspirant with The Temple of Aset we are to understand or to “Inner-stand,” to put it in your words, and embrace (quoting Sebai Maa) “that you are nothing less than Neter an Ren.” Lady Aset became became Goddess Aset because she understood that She was much more than Her earthly identity. She never stopped asking Ra His true name until She realized Her true nature as a Goddess—Her birthright. The Temple of Aset Meditation is a key part of creating one’s own Taffy Shepsy. The Scriptures have given us the Hekau (words of power) to realize our true Divine nature:

Chant “Djed n-a Ren-a k” until there are no more illusions.
