|Maat was the rule of law and moral justice among the ancient Kemet people, and the divine cosmological order within their mythology, astronomy, and astrophysical studies.|
Kemet is the name the native African people of the country now known as Egypt called themselves in their surviving writings. Many scholars refer to the people as "kmt" or Kemet. The surviving artifacts of the Kemet viziers and scribes evidence that Kemet rule of law was “Maat,” contained at least in part in observing the 42 Laws of Maat.
The Goddess Maat as the Cosmological Origin of Kemet Rule of Law
Heliopolis-era creation stories from the Kemet people report that in the beginning Atum emerged from the Isfet (chaos) of Nu (primordial waters). Atum created the god Shu (personification of air/cool dryness) and goddess Tefnut (personification of moisture) from Nu. Shu is depicted in the Kemet iconography as an ostrich feather.
Under Kemet cosmology, Maat is designed to avert chaos (Isfet) and maintain truth (Maat). The symbol for truth, justice, balance, and order is the Goddess Maat. The iconography for Maat in the hieroglyphs depict the single ostrich feather (Shu), worn atop Goddess Maat’s head.
During the reign of Pharaoh Menes, around 2925 B.C.E., after the unification of upper and lower Kemet, archaeological finds evidence administration of the 42 Laws of Maat among the Kemet people as deduced from Kemet coffin texts or funerary papyri dating from this period.
The Duat, the Hall of Two Truths, and the Weighing the Ka (Heart)
|Photo: Plate 3 of the Papyrus of Ani. 42 Laws of Maat, or 42 Negative Confessions, or 42 Admonition to Goddess Maat|
The duat (underworld as the place for judgment) is where the popular Kemet funerary scene of the Hall of Two Truths is depicted in the various versions of the “Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Papyrus of Ani,” edited by E.A. Wallis Budge. A closer interpretation of the title from the Kemet language is said to be “Book of Coming Forth by Day.” The Budge translation was a funerary text written for the "coming forth" of Kemet scribe Ani.
In Chapter 30B of The Papyrus of Ani entitled “Chapter for Not Letting Ani’s Heart Create Opposition Against Him, in the Gods’ Domain,” we see the deceased scribe standing before his own heart/soul (ka) on the scale of Maat. On the opposite scale is the Goddess Maat’s feather of truth (Shu). The head of the Goddess Maat is depicted atop the scales of justice. Thoth, also known by other names such as Tehuti, stands holding a tablet and a writing tool to record the results from the scales. The ibis-headed Thoth is the patron saint of Maat scribes and priests.

Please tell us why you feel there is no God?Delete
There us no one single entity known as God.. God is you. God is me. God is my brother. God is my sister. God is every person and everything. Each and every living entity on this earth, in the universe, in the cosmos, in existence is a part of a Universal force that creates the One-The all-The everythingness.Delete
You, as part of this everythingness, solely have the power and will to make things happen-to manifest within your life. It is your will and yours alone that realize successes and failures. If you say and believe that it will, then it will. If you say and believe that it won't then it won't. Only you have the ultimate power to create the existence that is your life. There is no person sitting up in the clouds pulling strings to make things happen for you.

Just because people don't see God as a father time figure doesn't mean they are Atheist.....It means that God is in us and creation as us......We seem thru history to need a person or idle to worship....There are plenty of Messianic Figures that we've learned from however, we're all divine agents that need to look within and not without.....Delete
It is all illusion. I agree with Nessie D. "God" is in everything, and in you. There is no particular deity, though. I look at it from a philosophical and scientific viewpoint. Ancient humans could not understand the concept of "god", so it was explained as if to a child. Prehistoric humans and so-called primitive people's were/are probably closers to the truth. Nature and science prove that there is energy and substance everywhere. The big bang was the beginning of that energy in this universe. That bang could have come from another universe that was dying. Simply put, a bunch of bubbles, or universes, exist. When one becomes too expansive it pops, as it bumps into another bubble. Or something like that. We are all made of stardust!Delete
Wow! Beautiful people.. Love to see so much beauty..Delete
Whites think they ARE God so they refuse to acknowledge any higher beings or Creator. Sickness. We taught them everything they know and they used it to make themselves rich, steal our land, defile nature and rape all of our women worldwide. They are paying for it as we speak.Delete
Your right all African are not black as of now. But for years after the creation of man they were all black, evil white men murdered them then took their land. Then they made the natives work their land and build their houses. Then to add insult to injury they created a taxation and forced them to pay for something that was already theirs. The history of white me is nothing but evil and if you check out these spiritual laws they broke them all,After they stole a few and called them 10 commandments. How does it feel to be workers of satanDelete
Good luck with that theory and I'll see you at your weigh-inDelete
Good to see if am not alone in my thoughts.I can see how the bible was clearly manipulated by Europeans to enslave people's minds. All this stuff is Africa, whether true or false was stolen and a white savior was created. They want us to believe that none whites, especially Africans were and still are savages and the white man civilized black people. How convenient that is. Our history was stolen, suppressed so that we wouldn't have knowledge.Delete
there is that what we know and what we think we know and what we dont know. Maat is merely principals based on the neters or nature. god is a word created by man in trying to understand what he couldnt. none of these gods or goddesses were to be understood in the humanistic way as dieties..they were merely forces of nature and alchemy and other principals involving all aspects of the sun, the heavens and earth and man and that relationship. Its all in you and me..all that we need if only we would not be afraid to see. ASEDelete
An African heritage maybe. A black heritage absolutely not. All Africans are not blacks and Egyptians have never said that they were blacks, whites or yellow. It is also to be noted that Egypt has been ruled by Native Egyptians, Nubians, Greeks, Romans, Assyrians... Their ancient beliefs can't be a legacy for black skin nor white skin. It's a legacy of all people that lived in Egypt or ruled the territory.ReplyDelete
Some africans have said why do blacks want to claim a nation that never claimed us? Are we that desperate or don't have anything better to do? Our future and place in the world don't depend on egyptian pyramids. We have lived all over the continent in our own right and don't need approval from the proselytizers of egyptian, greek or roman temples and gods to be a deserving human race. It's what we do in today's world that matters. Our ancestors from the sahara to the kalahari did what mattered to them and don't need our approval or european and asian approval for their human worth. Koreans and Japanese are sending rockets into space without having built a great wall, a sphinx, a taj mahal or a coliseum. Whatever egyptians were and did is good for history but is irrelevant for our livelihood. Why do we need to beg them to have a black skin? So that we can boast like europeans that their ancestors built temples and are the only one to have civilisation? If they did so what? It's important for Africans to deal with families, socio-economic issues, build our own roads, cars, computers... rather than wasting time in things like our ancestors built pyramids, egyptians were blacks... If we have been building all those things why is the entire black race in Africa begging for donations, chinese to build roads, indians to manage business, white to own mines, oil production... The egypt stuff is irrelevant compared to the socio-economic problems we are facing worldwide. No amount of ancient gods, pyramids and temples will solve our issues.

You are obviously not African, or you have no knowledge of who you are (which is sad). Your ancestors made you who you are. Though KMT was a creation of my BLACK African ancestors and were all BLACK dynasties for over 3,000 years (until the Greek and Roman invasions aka Ptolemaic Period), tit was only a child of other African civilizations.Delete
Actually the entire black race in Africa is not poor impoverished &/begging. That's only in certain areas, the vast majority of the continent is doing well & if you do a little research you'll find that at least 4 of the richest women in the world are Africans still living in AfricaDelete

Blacks were the original Egyptians, we built those pyramids, Asians and Europeans came in and pushed us south taking ov er north Egypt and taking and claiming everything we owned...Delete
thats right but we did more than build pyramids, we gave the world a reason to exist.Delete
It is division that is destroying the black race, find a way to unite and if this means bringing back history and morality through one religion, so be it.Delete
This is the issue that most people can't seem to see. Blacks don't claim kmt and say that's where we are from. But it is work that our ancestors built. I claim the land because I know who I am and where I am from. Your mind is still EuropeanizedDelete
Not true none so whatever! In an Egyptian conference help in Egypt in 1997 Dr.Diop, Dr.Van Sertima,Dr.Ben and many others had petitioned the Egyptian courts that they have undeniable proof that the Egyptians are of an darker hue, you can say Black if you would like! I'm gathering from your writing they you may be black? another thing is that you may not be of 0+ stock meaning that we are not relatives, so in this matter you are right! Not all blacks are related! Your name for example ancient symbolism that Ra(Amen) has something to do with whom you may share knowledge of, but I see you also have Xe in your name also meaning you be an offspring of Grecian breading meaning the Grecian were of mixed blood 0+ and A- meaning your thought process maybe tainted by in superior blood, Meaning this may be why your lack thereof of comprehensive information is short lived! P'S If you are black, Please remember The use of Knowledge is Kingly/Queenly!Delete
The ancient so called Egyptians who understood all what was to be understood rightly were black people but today the very black people are looked upon as nothing. The black people today don't even know that they have been brainwashed to forget their history and their credit is given to another who knew nothing now that's going against this very maat laws and u say nonsense u make me sick. Give credit to the one who deserves it otherwise ur not just, ur a theif not right, very wrong, bad for a good and Balance society . May black people get their credit and stop this nonsense for black people deserve all respect for this. Well peace and respect mother creatorDelete
why do you care then. If African American want to relate to ancient Egypt, it is their right. Egyptian were native Africans, yes a black race. It that makes you uncomfortable, grow a pair and move on with your life.Delete

Only thing important 2 know (black, African, African american) whatever u wanna be called, if ur darker than a Asian person, 2 every other race......we're niggas!

I would like to know more about this. I am mixed race. 50% African (Edo) and the rest is Armenian Indian- British .so I grew up in mixed cultures .I didn't really know my father well so don't know anything about his believes and cultures my mothers African but she is Christian and hates everything that has to do with the beliefs of her ancestors. I just know that my grandmother from my mother side practiced something different (native God and Godess of her people )but I never got to see her or meet her or understand anything about her religious practices because she was characterized by my christian mother as a which. (And don't know how but the same which lived for almost 100 years and was very fit ) just saying . I would like to know more about this and what literature u can advice on this topic. Thank youDelete
Dear Unknown, your Grandmother was a wisdom keeper, you must only ask her to show you the way in your heart and she will come forth as the wisdom of the spheres, the eternal it nature which is accessible to us all. When we accept our origins and the African origins of mankind, we open the door to much mystery and truth. Bur first Eurocentirc methodology must be put the rest, so more higher awareness may flow to our children and the world. Earth is a mighty mother, she has seen it all. I speak in metaphor as it helps access the subconscious mind so that our high consciousness may begin to lead and not follow the reptilian nature triggered in the modern world. Be well, May MAAT be honored, Eternal Mother of Truth, a pathway to our inner knowing, and unlimited bounty.Delete
they were all black, there was no whites in that areaDelete
The ancients did not speak in a language that, w/o much study, we can speak, or recognize. Our ancestors spoke in code that they understood. In the sctiptute, "God" was asked by Moses at the Burning Bush, "who shall I tell them who sent me" God told him, "tell them I AM THAT I AM". Meaning that God is EVERYTHING AND EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME. Also inDelete
the scripture God said "I am a SPIRIT and you must WORSHIP ME IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH" We are all of a spiritual nature, without which we would have no being. The scripture says that no man has seen God and lived. That is why God said "you say you LOVE me whom you've never seen, yet YOU HATE YOUR BROTHER WHOM YOU SEE EVERYDAY, YOU'RE A LAIR AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN YOU. YES!!! Research and history has shown that all people started as Black Africans, but some of our egos and mentality will not allow us to accept the TRUTH (MAAT) IF YOU ARE NOT OF THE TRUTH, THEN YOU MUST BE EVIL. Blacks,Whites different sides of the same coin. It's up to the INDIVIDUAL as to whether he/she want to live in TRUTH OR LIES AND DECEPTION, AND THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES FOR EACH!!!!!
maat is the divine balance of the u-n-i verse, past present & future if we dont acknowledge maat and live it then we cant complain about the way tings areDelete
understanding who you are and where you are from is very important that is why that's one of the first thing we as black people where denied, knowledge of self is important you don't know your a prince if you don't know your father is the king, and if they change your language you can't understand the king when he speaks. Truth, Power, and majesty comes from knowing who and where you are from. I will lay money on it that these same people that are saying the past does not matter wont there children to know of them and there journey to becoming who there are and how they got where ever they have achieved. we as BLACK People are the foundation of the world that is why we where chosen by GOD If you call him by Elijah, Yahweh, Buddha, Mohammed, Carl or Frank understand he is the Great I AM he is my God He Is my savior He is my life and I AM his chosen....................Love Ya PeaceDelete

Ancient Indians built all kinds of crazily intricate structures and wonders while half the world were still carrying sticks and smashing rocks together
The same can be said for China, who were, along with the people of Kemet, among the first to build ships that could travel the oceans, and built small devices which used engineering complex for the day to detect earthquakes
The people of ancient Polynesia were absolute genius, in the stone age, while they had stone age technology and no knowledge of metalworking whatsoever also build ships that could travel the ocean. And were also among the first. They made their maps out of twigs because they had no paper or papyrus or anything like that. They showed the ocean currents and common weather systems such as the tradewinds.
In the stone age. Caveman times. Do you know how hard it is to build a ship that can safely travel the ocean with stoneage technology? Nearly impossible.
And there are also the ancient arabs who built some of the most impressive structures of ancient times, like the temple of kind solomon and many more
And do not get me started on Spaniards, Italians, Greeks (all technically olive and not white btw)
The people of ancient Kemet were masters of Engineering and Architecture in a time when most of the world were living in caves playing with sticks. That is impressive and worthy of praise but they are not the only people in the world who were masters of Engineering and Architecture, though they were among the first.
At the end of the day All African Americans should first take a DNA test to actually find out what you truly are..and than let your immediately family 👪 know...because of slavery black people don't really know who they are....it is nothing wrong with know your family history...ijs when you know where you come from another race will not be able to tell you who and what you are 😊ReplyDelete
PLease research and KNOW slavery as they tell you never existed the numbers are inflated and slavery began its way into school during integrationDelete
I've already taken a Gnome test at one of the Universities that I got undergraduate degrees in along with 33 other students who were predominately white the rest Oriental and Asian. My results proved my African Native American DNA...Since I was the only African American in the class I had the strongest largest amount of African blood...DNA. So that is why I got a History degree and a psychology degree to help my people free themselves from the psychological slavery they are still in.

maruexa nobody want to claim nothing. this is the reality the african history
In reply to meruexa...Until you understand the devious mind of the white race and the hatred they have against the black race or any other race, you are lost. I agree that the main focus should be here and now in shaping our communities and guiding our children for a better future, but without knowing your roots and being proud of your heritage all is for nothing. To be able to annalyze the time and the direction of those who are trying mold and enslave our children we have to know our history and theirs. History is history but it is what it is, to have your history stolen from you through conspirators that can plan thousands of years ahead of your time is a crime against you. If you don't know how can you educate your kids and your descendants about moral issues and their true heritage. Sure, the future is what we need to focus on but if you don't know who your enemy is, you will never be able to block them from stealing your children's mind.ReplyDelete

Every nationality should know who their ancestors are and where the are from, and what they stood for ..know yourself ,once you find out knowledge of self life becomes easier to understand we are all not the same, for instance..what would it be like if African people did what Europeans did enslaved Europeans and had world domination (owned the land control the world economy, and made the laws that govern the United States. I don't think it would never have happened African people were Prosperous in there own land living the way they knew best !ReplyDelete

Hetepu brothers and sisters who are Kemetically conscious thanks for sharing your your knowledge... meruexa and those who are in agreement with your perspective...I mean YOUR perspective with its small nuances are incorrect and disrespectful just like the whole lot of you who would rather discredit Africa's first humans...Black Human Beginnings of humankind it is evident that you don't know the facts about Akubulan (Kemet) the Land of Blacks nor would you know that the first human created in Kemet is recorded in our history as being (those Africans who know our ancestry) know PTH... PTAH was and is a Black man the first man Created by Ra an aspect of Atum our Creator and thus the offspring humans were black Asur, and his siblings. I would be remiss if I did not pay homage to all of our ancestors who paved the way to our understanding our black history. Dr. Cheik Anta Diop...Dr.Yosef BenYochannan...Dr. John Henrik Clarke to name a few and to Imohotep and Manethoes. Our historical beginnings are written on the walls (Hieroglyphics) literally one has to be a Fool not to see our beautiful many shades of black skin and features so we are there in paintings spoken of in writings on the walls but oh let us not forget European Historians of old after they emereged from the Caves and Ice Capped hills of Europe Count Volney Wallis Budge ...Homer read about us our Black ancestors history and Spiritual Moral Living in these Europoean accounts...MAAT. It wasn't until the fake white Europeans came to Kemet Lands of Blacks looking for food because of their famine in the Cold that was the freaking downfall of our Heritage living MAAT. So you can't live MAAT. unless you pay homage to the principles of Ra MAAT.says We are not to be disrespectful towards God/Goddess...so don't mix your b.s. jive into moral divine laws by saying you live MAAT because you dont. And you don't acknowledge the God/Goddess aspect of Ra who created All.YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF MAAT. As for the person who said black people kill each other it is only because the younger generation don't have knowledge of self that they do this. You see when your people enslaved us brought us to America stripped us of MAAT. And enslaved us we began to take on the social characteristics of your ancestors our ancestors slave owners that we began these behaviors that a whole new set of ills in short came to Kemet Africans had no violence within until Europeans came and assisted in breaking Ra's Law of MAAT. Hetepu Black Brothers and Sisters continue to spread our historical knowledge it's gonna spread and we the Black descendants of Kemet Land of Blacks will rise to rule again through MAAT.ReplyDelete
One question: if atum ra/God is black then who/what created the other races?Delete
Does any of this really matter?? We are all energy, the same energy. Black, white , asian and so forth. All any of this does is further divide. History or ourstory is in the past for a reason, today is today and we must make the most out of it. I , a white person (since all of this seems to be based on race), respect all and what any ancestors did has nothing to do with what I do today. All life, whether it be animals, plants, stones, the elements, should all be revered, respected and appreciated as one in ourselves. These are some of the truthful teachings from the East that open hearts and minds. I comprehend that understanding oneself is necessary, but does understanding the continent or origin and the technological feats make a difference? We are here, NOW, to make changes that further ALL people.Delete
It is true that we are to forget the past and press on toward ... (Phil. 3:13-14), but that forgetfulness has to do with forgiveness and blessing others who curse you. The other type o f forgetfulness is thAt that suggest people forget where they came from, and why things are as they are at present. Any wish one knows that the present is an effect. The Cause is in the past: history pre-history, celestial and terrestrial. We must be willing to search out Truth and "be careful not to forget" what those two histories would teach us if we are worthy to sit at the feet of The Master.Delete

because if known or not, all of the land practiced ma'at... and thats a promise.
so, it matters not a tribe and i hate to see people go and lie about things.
unless u truly go to the vatican, search through the 8 miles and find your people, you are not going to know fa sure.
all you know if you're african by design.
lets stop putting our own down for wanting whats them.
that's not righteous... that's not ma'at-ish at all
Study the past and you will get truth and knowledge that you can apply in the present time to help you succeed in the future. Without our ancestor's knowledge and facts about history, we will continue to live life based on lies and be controlled.ReplyDelete
Meruexa, I advise you to study more and you will get TRUTH and understanding that will reduce your ignorance. Black is Beautiful.

When in doubt. Go fishing. If you look deep enough you may realize; your only trying to catch yourself. Mom told little red riding hood to go deliver these biscuits to grandma. Some may say look how she messed up something so simple. I would say: What kind of woman would send her dauther through the forest with all those goodies.ReplyDelete

Hi no way out. I understand your perspective. At the same time, as a black person, when I open a nonfiction book, about, let's say chemistry, and I read the European names of scientists, it makes me Wonder about the contributions of my own race to the current state of things. I think that is why this whole matter is important.Delete
We are all part of this universe and are the ones to care about it's restoration rather than putting all our effort to try to boast and mention those ancestors for nothing, they did what is according to their understanding and knowledge was right that was their period. What matters here is not either black, yellow or white race, if you analyze well they were good and much contributing to this new and future generation. Why don't we take time to make a better world where all of us are living in harmony and solidarity ? Life is a mystery, if there were no human existence no one could testify the existence of these marvelous things and wonderful world but by observing, obviously some are underestimating others not because of the color of their skin however some from this wisdom of KEMET they have developed and created doctrines to put the world in fear and ignorance so that they won't and understand anything about this universe due to their greenness and selfishness of power and wealth of this world. Peoples are always fighting for this wealth and we can not be satisfied even our pockets won't be full.ReplyDelete
This was FOR black people BY Black people my friend and violation of the rules is what's destroying the black race with Genocide.Delete
As it pertains to white people: White Roman European Pagans had the chance to fall under the rules of Maa't in Antioch as the Hellenistic Jewish "Ten Commandments" were nothing more than borrowed scripts from the rules of Maa't.
They decided that the rules of Maa't would be a hinderance to their Roman European rule of White Imperialism and world white supremacy(Notice, they had already conquered and taken over Egypt and put Ptolemy I in charge).
They, therefore declared, "WE DON"T LIVE UNDER THE LAW< WE LIVE UNDER "Grace", as if the grace of God never existed under the Old Covenant..smh
So if you look at the rules of Maa't...the part about killing, stealing land, taking what belong to God etc..The Imperialist knew that they would never even come close to being in tolerance of those laws. They needed to create Jupiter/Zeus (Jesus) and call on his divine ability to "forgive" unlimited number of times for murder, killing, terrorizing and enslaving which gives us the alleged "blood of Jezeus for forgiveness.
Paul was a heathen Poet who often quoted Aratus which were words spoken of Jupiter that he used for Jezeus.
As a result, the world is imbalanced and headed for destruction because European Pagan Gentiles refused to follow the laws Yahuda came to not abolish, but to fulfill.
I was born white and for this I will carry the sins of my fathers before me. I am disgusted with my country, and most all of the white people therin. We are being misled by false prophets claiming to speak the words of God only to enslave our souls for their power. I am on a journey to spread the truth and change myself, and those I meet to make the world a better place, and I accept whatever punishment I may recieve for no great sin comes without punishment. I pray we all find peace within ourselves, for love is life, and peace is a tool of love. I am unworthy to speak the words of God, and I voice my repentance to ask for understanding and forgiveness, though I know it won't come without pain.ReplyDelete
You are appreciated!Delete
Anon/DR, that's hopefully just on the earthly plane for you. I am not a believer of new life carrying the sins of others before them, unless you apply and enact those same thoughts and behaviors in your own life. The beauty of life in itself is a lesson with much experience, and Knowledge & Truth are found in your life experience, from such imparts wisdom. Apply it and spread it to as many who will listen and hopefully apply it to their lives. Many will not listen or info gather for themselves, but many will. We are all human entities, The essence of the creator is within all of us. We choose to use this essence in how we see fit, sometimes for the greater good, sometimes for the worse. None of us are perfect, but we can all attempt to make the world we live in NOW a better place by having an understanding of the past, and its human errors. There definitely was chaos in the past among all humans & cultures, nobody was PERFECT. Know that MAN creates words, and those words harness power. Race is only a term with meaning because MAN has created it with Separatist intent. Many look at each other today and that's the first thing that is seen, SKIN COLOR. As I see today, the intent of the dominant powers that be is wrapped in Separatism, Greed, Power, Self-Centeredness, Dominance and Control, all of which are mental thoughts that stem from Egoism and does not really serve the greater good of ALL in a positive peaceful way. We see the path Egoism creates, so just go straight & don't travel it. The dominant ideology that governs humanity today can only be refracted when WE began to STOP practicing & teaching it. Speaking on a macro level, every culture of MAN from what I can see has contributed beauty in many forms to this domain we now reside in. Learn, discover truth, & gain wisdom to share with others. This is what every generation SHOULD do to break the cycle. Know that the essence of god cannot be compartmentalized just as consciousness can't. We reside on a bipolar plane of existence, just know every choice, thought, feeling & action has an opposite. Go with the one that feels right for you & that impacts this world in a positive way. Remember, MAN has the ability to create reality as he/she see fits. Behaviors are a manifestation of thought, and obviously thinking must change. We must do this internally, as we can see externally there are MANY influences that control how & what we think. Knowledge is learned, wisdom is earned. It's been time for TRUTH and CHANGE. Let's hit the reset button.ReplyDelete
Let's just stop the Hate. Let's Learn the TRUTH. Let's understand the Essence of God is within all. Let's not get hung-up on race, it's irrelevant & a form of separatism by the dominant powers that be. Let's acquire knowledge and gain wisdom, for that is what we must teach the coming generations. Behavior reveals true thought, Let's fix that to. Every culture of man has contributed beauty to this world in one form or another. Go within internally, examine your inner self (thoughts & actions). Change those that are egoist, biased, and goes against the greater good of humanity. I'm a firm believer we do not carry the sins of those before us unless we still think and act as they did. Man has the ability to change reality, Let's change it for the greater good, accept TRUTH, & challenge the structures that mislead from true knowledge of self & essence of God that resides within us all. PEACE my Brothers & Sisters!!!ReplyDelete

Their is a nameless power unmade that is a sovereign with nothing above or beside her. She is nothing in and of herself; yet, from her ineffable substance all things are made, and to her all things return. From her there came into being her son who established himself under he own accord. He set her mixture into motion and he has full knowledge and discernment of everything, for this intelligence is the father of all spiritual forms and is the purest of all things. He created another mind, one that was made of fire. This being was the first made thing, composed of spirit and matter, for she/he was made as an all perfect universal animal, containing potentially within itself the idea forms of all animals. She/he is the only begotten and this cosmic being is the lord of the world and the savoir of mankind. She/he is the word, the law, and the act manifested, who incarnates into the physical plane in times of great turmoil to teach the truths that are older than the songs of birds, to preserve the life that is ever becoming.ReplyDelete
Great article. AmunRa.ReplyDelete
Though I am not African, I am a mixed native, Hispanic, American. Tracing the roots of man and the initial over turning of the Ma’at way, to the current state of which the worlds beliefs systems and trends in life. I can see the chaos brought about, indo Europeans coming from the north who stole the knowledge and manipulated it. Have only used it to kill enslave and enforce native peoples across the globe who had a virtually common belief system into a misinterpreted, and lesser evolved being, not including eradicating those who would not conform. Thus take not only the truths of Africa but the truths of the world. Now the world sits in a numb, ignorant, doomed state. I was so happy to see these comments and find the Ma’at way because it is the true way of life. Though I may not be able to fully fulfill the 42 laws, I can spread the knowledge and one day hope to be accepted in The Kemet way of life. A way for all of Africa and the world. Such harmony with the universe and everything in it can only provoke positive evolutionReplyDelete
And the altering and destruction of this truth the Ma’at truth
Is only to hinder the true architects and guides of human kind for the use of a single group that is the minority in the world and only because of their violence have the turned it to their false majority image and falsified images of our ancestors. How can we awaken the masses and the world
Oooo Am so humbled to all these stories now where are you all of you come let us unite and save our people Am a spiritual teacher I don't believe in all bible history and I have members even in government now but they are hiding...Am leader of house of disciples in Africa in two countries Zambia and congoDr and people are coming in numbers to learn...honestly speaking I was born like this I never been taught all this knowledge but it always come when I start teaching.... so please my fellow restora of our spirituality let's unite and establish ourselves be blessed allReplyDelete
In Kemetic spirituality, the gods (or NTR) weren't actual gods.They were personified aspects of the world around these ancient people. they used the NTR to tell stories and explain the things that happened in the world around them. For instance, Hru (commonly known as jesus in the bible) is representative of the sky and sun. December 24th, the birth of christ (Hru) is explained as the day the son is born. In KMT, it literally meant when the SUN was born. This is because they studied the stars extensively and knew that the 3 days before the 24th were the shortest days of light in the year. From the 24th and onward, the days start becoming longer. The word nature derives from the word NTR (netcher) because the NTR were representative of the nature of the world these ancient Africans observed.ReplyDelete

Please can anyone guide me to the ORIGINAL 42 commandments and where they are found (like, archeologically)? Because when you google this, every list presented is unlike the other! What is the ACTUAL REAL origin of these rules - ANYONE? Please feel free to email me if you know. firstname.lastname@example.org (just to be clear: HOW can we know which list is correct - hard evidence such as hieroglyphs inscriptions somewhere or actual papyrus parchments with actual archeologists/egyptologists translation) thank you so much whoever is so generous to guide me right!

May I quote a portion of your comment:
"I'm glad that I'm an American. I'm glad that I don't have to define myself by the color of my skin or eyes, the shape of my face or my " Ancient Heritage" I had no choice over in these things.
I DO HOWEVER, have a choice of what I become, How I choose to react and try be a happy person that gives out a positive energy.
This is my Ma'at.
Angel, that was beautiful. May you continue on to perfection!!
I try to reason with my friends and siblings,to try and tell them and explain that to me,there is no one single being called God...that God is in us,in the trees,in your neighbours, in ur dog...the existence of all these things in the universe and around us is what is God. The energy emitted by all these and how we react to stimuli matters. When you need and emmit positivity, then life blossoms and the opposite is true. Does this make me an aethist? I don't think so,I believe there is God,and I also believe that God manifestation is seen in everything and everyone around us.ReplyDelete
Ashe there should be no arguments about whether KMT (THE land of black) was inhabited by black skinned peoples of 3 hues or skin shades its on the hieroglyphs. There were no white people or Arabs or Chinese Japanese or Indians or any other races if you wanna calk yourselves a race there were Only Black People. The Righteous Black People Egyptians who observed the Admonitions if MAAT for Billions of years prior to the first nasty violence ways was recorded an that credit goes to an Arab invasion by the way Arabs are white Caucasians, then the White Greeks then White Romans lastly Arabs lied like they were helping the true black Africans take back their land from white romans but instead they did white Caucasians do live like devils and tricked our ancestors flipped the scripts fought against them. Now today Arabs are claiming our land not one statue or monument looks like an Arab or Caucasians those statutes are of black people with kinky Afro hair, braid, thick lips an hips all the features white people used to abhor. So stop your lying white people you stole our history and we are reclaiming it By any mean necessary. We are told this in the Hermetic Texts that MAAT will be restored through the original peoples reclaiming her principle and the Universe will back us up. Now not all black people are of our lineage this can be proved by those who helped overthrow the Sacred Kemetians sending them into that human trafficking they called slave slave trading as well as today the descendants of black skinned peoples who are not holy righteous Maatian or Smwi Twean. There's no need to argue the Sun will burn all unrighteous its shifted to do so this is a fact Caucasians you have mental illnesses you get Sun burned how is The African Continent yours it isn't logical. Arabs you stole our history and land diascreating our ancestors by diggings and squatting on their graves MAAT says Don't Disrespect The Dead!So you people don't know or observe MAAT but you can't pick and choose Black People True Egyptians would never dig up an ancestors grave we understood and understand the preparation for afterlife but wait Caucasians don't have a Soul so there's no Afterlife for you so that is impetus for your hatred of my Original Aboriginal from the Most High People.

The Ten Commandments ain't got nothing on these rules. .😁😄😆ReplyDelete
It is based on the Truth so the weight is placed on telling TRUTH in testifying, not necessarily about whether they followed 100% of the Laws. The weighing of their heart against the feather was based on their ability to tell TRUTH regarding Maats observations of their transgressions. Through her Eye they were weighed with the power of their words as their anchor. (words against actions). Many of these laws being violated is what led to the decline of their civilization. However, they were much more technologically advanced than us.ReplyDelete
