In The Desert Of Seth

By G. B. Marian

Glossary: Ma’at

The act of treating others with dignity and respect, and the social, political and spiritual harmony that can result from doing so. The Gods have already established Ma’at between each other, which is how Creation is able to exist in the first place. It’s up to human beings to establish Ma’at at our own level, however, and we must uphold it not only in relation to other humans, but in relation to animals and the Earth as well. Doing so will greatly increase our chances of survival; not doing so will greatly increase our chances of driving ourselves into extinction.

    A good deity to appeal to for help in matters of social justice by the sounds. I also really enjoy the concept you guys have of “opening the mouth, of something in order to instill it’s sacred qualities. In a similar way I have done this sort of “potentiation” with a number of objects which I believe deepen my capacity to heal myself and those around me, such as my musical instruments. Thank you for sharing!
