Kemet 101 Lesson 1
1 of 2 Intro to the Egyptian Yoga Book Series London 2015-
A- Notes on the most important themes I heard.
1- Making the best use of the books: Neterian Yoga, Egyptian Yoga, Kemetic Philosophy and the Kemetic Diet (a must read for those who are stressed out, It has scientific knowledge for handling stress).
2- Step one how to approach the books, which books should you read first. Start with Egyptian Yoga vol.1 is the mother of all the books, it shows how Sema Tawi has been doing Egyptian Yoga for decades. In 1995 Egyptian Yoga came out and every chapter has become a book in itself. It gives you back ground work and an overall perspective. It give you information of what initiation is all about and what religions is supposed to be.
3- Egyptian Mysteries vol. 1, entry into the knowledge of understanding of what Egyptian mysteries are, what they were and supposed to be.
4- There is a three vol. set broken up into three parts, African Origins about African civilization, and how it was transferred. Vol. 2 deals with Africa Western, vol. 3 with Eastern civilization. These 3 are where you can start to get the guidance that would start leading you to the next books.
5- Step two on the nuts and bolts on what to do like tomorrow, what to do tonight or this morning to start your spiritual practice. How to start the Shedy disciplines of Kemetic spirituality. Shedy are the spiritual disciplines that a practitioner needs to follow and practices in order to enlighten their personality and to cleanse their heart, to lead to development of wisdom, this includes doing the postures and the study of the teachings, the devotional program, acting with righteousness, order and truth in life practice and are the basic disciplines.
6- Including right action and diet base on a vegetarian diet and supplements.
B. Note which one you thought was most important and why.
1. Many people think that you can gets some books and think you understand the teachings and you even fool yourself into thinking that you have evolved and have enlighten yourself, but when your tested, when life stresses you, the truth comes out. Why? This was me for many years reading and studying the books on my own and thinking I had truly learn the practice until life situations came to test me. I have also known people who claim to be enlighten and was still living the same lies and falsehood.
2. You should have guidance with your studies. Why? It’s very important for one to have a spiritual preceptor to guide you along your path because you have not develop yet in experience and understanding of the teachings and can easy lead yourself astray from understanding the wisdom teachings and proper practices.
3. Yoga is not just a physical practice as developed in the West, it supposed to be a foundation for spiritual evolution. Why? Before yoga had become a physical practice in the West it was a foundation for spiritual evolution and the Gods and Goddesses movements.
4. The four fold aspects of the personality that you have, you’re ethical conscious, you’re will aspect, your feelings, emotions and your influence. Why? To understand these separate aspects of the personality and how they function will give you more insight, control and acknowledgment of your true self and a better opportunity for improvement and developmental corrective actions in life.
5. Part of purifying means that you have to live Maat and you have to do devotion to the divine to purify your feelings, so Maat purify’ s your ethical conscious, Auset the wisdom purify your intellect and devotion purify your feelings. When you start devoting to a higher propose in life as oppose to the lower propose. Why? This is what learning, listening and practicing the wisdom teachings do serves to purify the personality and the whole self, and of course you have to add the proper foods.
6. You have to learn what virtue is and what is truly worthy to be of interest in life and then move towards that. If you cannot move towards that than you will not be able to progress on the spiritual path. Why? Maat is virtue and we have to learn to practice her virtue’s and learn our culture to find out what is worthy of our attention as we live life in society and where ever we are and engaged in. We have to move towards righteous behaviors and give up the ways of the ego that we were taught before we came into the true knowledge and wisdom teachings of the ancient Kemetic sages. Otherwise we will not purify ourselves but will remain in a dull state of living life and following the ariu and the ego.
7. No one can do anything to you that your ariu, your unconscious mind is not in line with. Why? It’s like nothing happens by chance, we either are experiencing what our ariu has brought forth from past lives or our karma and ego, be it good or not good, and these things happen to us as a part of life lessons so that we can acknowledge them and allow them to lead us into purification of the ariu, karma and ego, while striving to correct the self by living Maat through practicing with devotion to the self (Auset) and learning the correct spiritual wisdom teachings so that we can purify our ariu and change our karma while we live.
8. So the Kemetic diet is the three fold health process for body, food for the body, food for the mind and food for the soul and if you don‘t have those three you will be deficient. Why? There has been designed three means to good health and in order to have good health we have to learn that there are foods for the body, the mind and the soul. We must learn all three of the means/ foods to nourish our body, mind and soul in order to be healthy and whole, so that we are not deficient. There is food for the body and knowledge for the mind and wisdom for the soul.
2 of 2- Introduction to Ancient African Civilization
A- The most important themes I heard:
1- The three most important aspects that allow society to function which are civilization, religion and philosophy. Why? This shows me the reasons society is so corrupted because it degrades its citizen in every way. The leadership do not practice civil behaviors, they teach and enforce false religion and the philosophy in which they teach the masses are built on falsehood, lust, illusions and lies, and so for these reasons alone although there are more reasons, our society has been out of harmony with Maat and unable to function in a balance way for all in a civilized way.
2- What we see here is the ignorance leader of the family, leading the family members and following blindly a culture of excess, a culture of self-important and culture of greed and so forth. Why? This is the habit of the masses who follow along blindly and are lost due to not developing themselves in life and having not yet found what it takes to know thy self-due to ignorance, so the ariu and the ego continues to control the person and the person leads the family down the wrong paths. This is what happen when people are taught and practice the wrong culture. Many families live this way. Only few people come to the realization of the ancient Egyptian spiritual sage teachings and become enlighten.
3- It’s very important for us to have an understanding of what our culture is otherwise you will be adopting some culture that is actually going to be detrimental for you, like a Coca Cola culture. Why? The leadership worldwide are not following a righteous path of living truth and most societies are practicing greed, gluttony, dishonesty, hypocrisy, selfishness, hatred, anger and lust among themselves and the larger population. So the idea of true culture is missing and people are being led astray due to false teachings, bad food and the absence of Maat as a way of government and governing society. So it important to know what culture belong to you and what culture means.
4- How is it that all humanity came from Africa? Why? Human life began in Africa.
5- Genetic studies have showed that all human being alive today come from one ancestor. Why? Because we are all one family.
6- If you are to discover who you are transcending culture that is called know thy self. Your higher self beyond culture. Why? We are Gods and Goddesses and have the power to transcend the human nature and culture to know our higher nature which is beyond culture.
7- The spirit is the higher reality.
8- Kemet is the oldest civilization in history.
9- Civilization is the art of being civil.
My question are as follows:
1. How is it that after so many years and generations that the truth of the ancient African spiritual wisdom teachings has been hidden from the masses and people for so long, how did the reality come forth again and what made it happen?
2. As the present society that we live in is going to destroy itself, then what does this all mean for a spiritual aspirants and spiritual preceptors and the rest of the population?
3. I have studied with and have known groups that claim themselves to be of the ancient African Egyptian sage teachings and have taken leadership positions and are teachings and practicing polygamy. To what extend does polygamy have to do with the ancient African Egyptian sage spiritual teachings and how true is it according to the teachings? When and why did it take effect in society? And why you don’t practice polygamy nor do you teach it?
4. I have also studied with groups and was taught by people who claim to be learnt in the ancient African Egyptian spiritual sage teachings about the use of oracles as a part and practice of the ancient African Egyptian sage religious teachings. How truthful are those practices? When did they begin and why don‘t you teach your student to practice using them? Can’t using oracles be harmful to the developmental process of the true self? Do we need oracles to communicate with God? How does oracles communicate with God?
5. I am beginning to believe and feel that it not a good idea to bring children into this world these days due to the corruption we face on earth today, due to the ruler ship and those who run the government worldwide and due to the fact that the world is a place of suffering in time and space. Plus it’s headed for destruction, so tell me why it good not to bring more children into this world although many people will still be bringing children here to suffer? Will reincarnation continue if the world is destroyed and shouldn’t we strive to not have to reincarnate again, because many people are calling themselves sages and are teachings their groups to plan and look forward to reincarnation and that their next life on earth will be better which is not possible.
