P.E.A.C.E and Blessings…
…the following is the Kamitic Story of Ausar as told and explained by (SUS) Ra Un Nefer Amen in his Metu Neter Volume II…
When Ausar became King of Kamit, the men he came to rule were in a savage state. They were nomadic tribes in constant warfare against each other. They were wholly given over to evil and sinful behavior.
This is symbolic of the state of the lower part of the being when not guided by the indwelling divinity because it is restricted to the subconscious life of the person. Individuals and nations are doomed to evil experiences.
Ausar brought civilization and spirituality to the people, enabling them thus, to achieve prosperity. He gave them a body of laws to regulate their conduct, settled their disputes justly, and instructed them in the science of spiritual development. He shared the rulership of the land with the Queen Mother Auset, who domesticated wild barley and wheat.
Along with Ausar, who taught men the art of agriculture – the tilling of the soil, cultivaton of grains, and of fruit trees – they also laid the material foundatios for the development and growth of civilization. Brothers no longer lifted their hands against each other. There was prosperity and peace throughout the land of Kamit. Having civilized Kamit, he turned the government of his native land to Auset, and traveled around the world to spread the same instructions.
When the indwelling intelligence comes to the foreground it brings order to the life of the individual, resulting in a prosperous, healthy, and successful life. Thus we can see that in the Kamitic value system, success in life comes from allowing the indwelling divinity to rule ones life. Education, talents, etc. can only play supportive and subordinate roles. As the central faculty of the Sahu, Auset (the persona) shares in the government of the life of the individual and nations because of her devotion to following Ausar – the divine Self.
The similarity of religious concepts and symbols around the world is explained as the spreading of the Ausarian religion – historically documented as the oldest in the world.
Ausar induced people to accept his teachings, not by force of arms, but the use of persuasive lectures, spiritual hymns and music. Wherever he went he brought peace and learning to the people.
Thousands of years before Islam and Christianity, who spread their religions by the sword, the Kamau believed in the peaceful dissemination of their spiritual system. This was done not only for the sake of peace and respect for the dignity of men. It was due to the realization that to defile men is to defile the Supreme Being who is the indwelling Self in each person. Besides, religion being what it is, cannot be disseminated otherwise. Not to understand that is not to understand religion.
While he was away, Auset ruled the land so expertly, that her brother Set who was consumed with jealousy over Ausar’s success, was unable to realize his main desire. He sought in vain to stir up rebellion in the kingdom, so he plotted to overcome Ausar by deception – his chief characteristic – with the help of 72 followers.
As Auset represents the personality that is devoted to following Ausar (God in manifestation), it cannot be overcome by the forces of evil.
When Ausar returned from his mission, he was greeted with a royal feast. Set came with his 72 conspirators, supposedly to honor Ausar and to make merry.
That the conspirators of Set numbered 72 was an allusion to the fact that Set’s main weapon was deception, which is a negative expression of the intellect – the 8th sphere Sebek – Sebek, who was Set’s main lieutenant and strategist corresponds to the planet Mercury which, in the Canaanite Kabala rules over 72 spirits called the Shemhamphoras.
Set brought a funerary chest in the shape of a man which was so beautiful that everyone at the feast desired it for themselves. When everyone was in a joyous state from beer drinking, Set stated that he would give the chest to anyone whose body fit the chest perfectly. They all tried it for size, but no one could fill it out perfectly.
This part of the story is a reference to Set’s reliance on alcohol and other drugs to facilitate his deceptive acts. His deception masterpiece in regards to this method is to criminalize the use of drugs he cannot control, and to make Sahu Man, who will believe anything, treat the enslaved through alcohol as an ill person.
He came last to Ausar and asked him if he would try it, knowing all along that it would fit the King, as he had made the chest to the exact dimensions of his body. Ausar entered the chest and his body fit it in every part. Before he could get up, the followers of Set jumped quickly to close the lid of the chest and nailed it down and soldered it fast with lead.
Setians make careful study of those they would attack and conquer.
Needless to say, the King died immediately of suffocation.
An allusion to the relationship of the breath to the working of the indwelling divinity. As it is awakened through special breathing procedures – slow, deep rhythmical breathing – its range of function is affected by irregular and shallow breathing.
The feast was broken up in great confusion as the followers of Set fell upon the people with their weapons to take over the government. Set commanded his followers to take the chest away and dispose of it in a secret place. They hastened through the thick cover of darkness and flung it into the Nile. The Nile’s current took it to the open ocean, and it was presumed lost for ever on the bottom of the ocean.
An allusion to the fact that the indwelling intelligence is hidden away from most people in the subconscious (bottom of the ocean). This is why meditation, which is a process of taking the consciousness into the subconscious while retaining full consciousness, is essential in religious work.
So ended the world’s reign of peace, harmony and prosperity.
The indwelling intelligence builds up the spirit, mind and body of the individual from the moment of conception. Although it is restricted to managing the involuntary vegetative functions of being, it is the major influence in life during our infancy, although the dormancy of the intellectual faculties prevent it from expressing itself in the thinking of children. Yet, its influence is to be seen in their absence of evil, hate and such qualities. As children grow, their minds are taken over by the lower intellect which totally eclipses the indwelling intelligence. This is Set killing Ausar, especially if their behavior is characterized by deception. In the life of nations and the history of the world we find the same progression from innocence to wickedness.
When the bad news regarding Ausar’s fate was taken to Auset, she was stricken with great sorrow. She wept bitterly and could not be consoled. In her grief she cut off a lock of her hair, put on mourning clothes and vowed to never rest until she found the body of her beloved king and husband.
We will see in the first stage of initiation that the experiencing of genuine sorrow over the restriction of the indwelling divinity to maintaining the involuntary vegetative subconscious functions of the body and mind and the dedication of one’s self to expanding its function to ruling the external aspects of our lives, is the first requirement for [spiritual uplift]. This is important for many people deceive themselves with the conviction that they are spiritual, yet experience no remorse over their acts that keep the divinity from rising in their being.
She searched everywhere, questioned everyone she met and, when it seemed all was in vain, she met up with some children who told her that they had seen the chest floating down the Nile and entering the sea.
While the first step towards spiritual development is the experiencing of genuine sorrow over the lowly condition of the divinity within, the second evidence of spirituality is being driven to find the true spiritual way.
A reference to the psychic openness of children. Their life life force has not yet been dissipated in sexual activity and they have not yet been corrupted by social and Setian fallacies. Although they cannot clearly and fully express it, divine influence works greatly through them.
Meanwhile, Set usurped the throne of Ausar and reigned over the land of Kamit. Law and order which followed from the moral [uplift] of the people was replaced by the use of force. Everywhere men were robbed of their possessions and land, through legal unjust means. Once owners, they were now renters and wage earners. Tyranny and the law of might prevailed as the Divine Law was repealed. Everywhere the followers of Ausar – who lived by Ma’at – were persecuted.
Secularism and distorted religion replaces the true religion. Heru Ur should have opposed Set but didn’t because of his blindness.
The good Queen Mother Auset became a fugitive in her own land, she fled to conceal herself in Set’s own stronghold, the swamps and marshes of the Delta of Lower Kamit. She believed that it was the last place he would dream of ever looking for her. Seven scorpions followed her and served as her protectors.
That she concealed herself in the stronghold of Set is symbolic of the personality, although devoted to Ausar, remains trapped in the Sahu part of the Spirit. It also prophesizes that the historical followers of Ausar will develop thei resistance in Set’s cities. The seven scorpions symbolize the 7 popularly known as chakras (psychic centres).
Ra also came to her aid. Looking down from heaven and seeing her distress, he took pity on her and sent Anpu (Anubis), the son of Ausar and NebtHet, to serve as her guide and guard dog.
Anpu’s assistance refers to one of the aspects of the 8th sphere, Sebek (the intellect uplifted by Ma’at), which assists the person in her search for God within. Such an intellect also becomes the major psychic protector for the indivisual.
One day Auset requested shelter at the house of a poor woman, but was refused by the woman who was stricken with fear on seeing the scorpions accompanying her. But a scorpion managed to slip in before the woman closed the door and bit her child causing immediate death. To repair the damage, Auset uttered words of power which caused the child to come to life again, for which the mother was so grateful that she allowed Auset to stay in her house.
When the person is devoted to resurrecting the indwelling divinity, by his/her genuine experiencing of sorrow over Its restricted role, a great deal of psychic healing power is awakened. It is also an allusion to the awesome offensive powers residing in the six phenomenal chakras – psychic centres. They can only wielded with great success by those who are devoted to God.
The coffin of Ausar was taken by the waves to Byblos, a port city in southern Syria, and it was cast onto the shore. A tree sprang up and grew around it enclosing the body of Ausar in its trunk. News of this tree which grew so rapidly and of such beauty came to the king of this alien land, and he commanded that it should be cut down and its trunk brought to him. He erected it as a pillar in his house without knowing the great secret it contained within.
An allusion to the exportation of the Ausarian religion and the Tree of Life to Palestine and Syria. They received it but never fully understood the true secrets it held within. It also informs us that in seeking spiritual instruction, given Set;s dominance at home, we will have to search in foreign lands and people.
A revelation came to Auset in her dreams that she might find Ausar’s body in Byblos, so she set off towards Syria by ship. When she arrived she dressed as a commoner, and sat beside a well weeping bitterly. At the well she befriended the queens handmaiden, whose hair she braided. Into each lock she breathed a sweet and unique perfume. They went back to the palace and told their queen of this woman who had the strange power of exhaling and exuding perfume from her breath and body. The queen commanded that she should be bought immediately before her. Auset found favor in the eyes of the queen who made her the nurse to one of her sons.
The importance of dreams in those who are devoted to reawakening the ‘dead’ god within.
A reference to the spiritual powers developed by those who are devoted to the resurrection of the Ausar faculty within.
Auset refused to nurse the child, and to silence his cries for milk she put her finger into his mouth. Instead of milk, at night she caused him to be enveloped in a sacred fire which would confer immortality to the child. In the meantime, she transformed herself into a swallow and flew to where the pillar containing Ausar was kept, and uttered loud cries of sorrow, while flying around it. While she was thus engaged, the queen came by and saw the babe surrounded by the flame and snatched him from it, denying him thus of immortality.
Auset transformed herself back into human form and confessed to the queen who she was and the purpose of her mission. She then asked the king that the pillar be given to her. The king granted her request and she cut deep into the trunk and took out the chest, which she wrapped in linen and anointed it with myrrh. The empty pillar was returned to the king who erected it as a monument to Ausar, and for many centuries it was worshipped by the people of Byblos.
Imagining oneself as different creatures, persons etc. while in trance is an important practice in spiritual development. What you imagine doing in trance is taken by the spirit as reality. It is thus that powers are developed and limiting conditioning are transcended. This is why the Pert Em Hru, the Tibetan Yoga system and so on prescribe such visualizations to be practiced by the initiate. The empty pillar became the tree of life of the Canaanite, and later on, of the Jews. It was empty because they did not receive the full teachings.
Auset returned by ship with the coffin, accompanied by Maneros, the king’s first born son. While at sea, Auset could not wait to see Ausar, so she opened the chest and embraced the corpse and wept bitterly. Meanwhile , the boy Maneros had secretly stolen behind her to see what was in the chest and what was going on. She turned suddenly and the fire in her eyes caused the boy to die of fright, and he fell into the sea.
An allusion to the great psychic powers developed by the persona when it beholds and interacts with Ausar – the indwelling divine intelligence – in trance.
When Auset reached the land of Kamit she took the body and according to the Pyramid Texts number 632, 1636 and murals at Abtu (Abydos) and Philae, “she transformed into a swallow and hovered over the dead body, causing a wind with her wings, and raised the weary phallus of the silent-hearted (dead) and received his seed. Thus was Heru conceived.
Auset’s conception of Heru by no living man is the oldest documented version of immaculate conception. It is no secret that the concept of the Virgin Mary and Jesus originated in this story. This is why there were thousands – now about hundred – of Black Virgins all over Europe. They can still be found in the Vatican, and the Polish cathedral of the present Pope.
In another version of the story, she conceived and gave birth to Heru before setting out to Syria to find Ausar. When Set heard about it he set out in persecution of the new born heir to the throne. Hearing that he was coming, Auset hid him in Buto under the protection of Uatchet. An analysis of the entire story will show that it cannot fit in coherently with the logic of the story. It is important to note it because 1) it reveals the role of the psychic powers symbolized as Uatchet and Nekhebet in the protection of the undeveloped will, and 2) It is the source of the story in which Herod, on hearing about the birth of Jesus sets out to destroy all the new born males.
She then hid the body in a secret place and hastened to Buto, in the city of Khemmis to give birth to her son Heru. Her triumph was short-lived. While she was in Buto, Set came hunting the boar at full moon in the marshy swamps of the Delta and by accident found the chest. Recognizing it, he opened it and took the body of Ausar and cut it into fourteen pieces and scattered them in various parts of the country.
The breaking of the body of Ausar symbolizes the fragmentation of consciousness by the left side of the brain which leads to a segregated view of the world. The fourteen pieces also correspond with the 14 psychic centers (chakras) of the spiritual body. The dispersion of the pieces of the body of Ausar is the origin of the religious doctrine of the Diaspora – the dispersion of the elect.
On hearing about Set’s deed, Auset set out again in search of the members of Ausar’s body, this time accompanied by her sister Nebt Het, who until then was married to Set. At length recovered all the parts except the phallus which was swallowed by the Lepidotus, Phagrus, and the Oxyrynchus fish. She buried an image of each member where it was found and erected a tomb which became a place of worship by the people in the area. The existence of the actual members, were kept secret so that Set would not resume his search for the body.
Nebt Het corresponds to the 7th sphere, the imaginative faculty which joins the persona in the search for the indwelling divinity.
The connection of the fish to the phallus has to do with the correspondence of the sexual pyschic center to the ‘water’ element. The parasympathetic division of the autonomous nervous system corresponds to the ‘water’ element and governs sexual potency. The point being made, however, is the fact that sexual potency is a key index of spiritual power. It must be nurtured, and the sexual act moderated for spiritual growth.
Set continued his tyrannical rulership over the land, unrelenting in his persecution of the followers of Ausar. The people’s worship of Ausar strengthened his spirit and caused him to appear in dreams to his son Heru who was now a grown man. He encouraged him to regain the throne to which he was the rightful heir and gave him instruction in battle.
A reference to the ancestral communication rituals which empower the deceased to assist their family members on earth, as well as the instruction received by the latter to solve their problems.
Heru gathered his army and went to confront Set. They first met in Edfu, where Set’s army slew many of the followers of Heru.
As we will see, ultimately Set will be defeated through truth, but one must be prepared to stand up to him at all costs, and by all means necessary. Without this, you cannot get him to abide by the truth. Heru was defeated because he followed his own head. Heru is our sense of freedom and independence.
But Heru and his followers, although greatly outnumbered, resumed the war. His greatest weapon was his faith in the counsel from Tehuti, whose words were God’s Words (the Metu Neter). They attacked Set again and drove him to the eastern frontier. He sought refuge at Zaru where Heru caught up with him, and the last battle of the war ensued.
His victory came from humbling himself to the intuitive guidance of the wisdom faculty which is received through perfection in meditation, or oracles, or counsel from a sage.
As we will see ultimately Set will be defeated through truth, but one must be prepared to stand up to him at all costs, and confront him with all means possible. Without this, you cannot get him to abide by the truth.
In this pitched battle that went onfor many days, Set gouged out Heru’s eye, which would have cost Heru the war had not Tehuti healed it. With his insight regained, Heru managed to castrate Set.
The eye of Heru symbolizes the visual thinking right side of the brain which governs understanding and spirituality. It is also the symbol of omniscience and omnipresence of god as shown in earlier chapters, thus it was attacked by Set. The healing of the eye by Tehuti is an allusion to the role that wisdom plays in our life. Likewise, Heru attacked Set in the seat of his uncontrolled [agression].
This was the decisive point in the war. Set was defeated, taken prisoner and condemned to death. Heru turned him over to the Queen Mother Auset for her to administer the judgement, but she refused to kill him, on the grounds that they were all family, and set him loose. Outraged, the impetuous youth (Heru) cut her head off – some say her royal diadem – which was replaced by a cow’s head or crown by Tehuti.
Auset’s action is an allusion to the infinite compassion and understanding of the oneness of life created by a deep devotion to awakening Ausar. It puts checks and balances on the necessary militant confrontation of battle. If evil is to be defeated, it must come about through the victory of righteousness. Tehuti gave Auset the cow’s head to show that she was merely following an instruction from above. Cows don’t lead the pack. This was another reminder to Heru. The will of Man is in need of such constant reminders to be humble.
Although Set had been defeated, Auset and Nebt Het were still grieving over the death of Ausar. In a chant Auset exclaims:
Gods and Men before the face of gods
are weeping for thee
at the same time
when they behold me
Aes! I [invoke] thee with wailing
that reaches high as heaven
Yet you do not hear my voice
I, your sister loves you more than all the earth
and you love none other more than me
It is not enough to defeat evil, God’s rulership of the life of the individual and of nations must be restored.
Auset’s chant defines what devotion to God is. One must love God more than anything else in the world. In the Auset stage of initiation devotion to God is expressed by the experiencing of sorrow for engaging in the sinful acts that prevent the indwelling Divinity from rising to the foreground of our lives.
And Nebt Het in her chant exclaims:
Overcome the sorrow in your hearts
of us, your sisters
Live before us
desiring to behold you.
Nebt Het’s chant emphasizes the joy of awakening the indwelling God. This is the theme of the Het-Heru stage of initiation.
The lamentations of the goddesses were heard by Ra, and he sent them once again Anpu, who with the assistance of Tehuti and Ra reunited the dismembered body of Ausar, wrapped in linen bandages and mummified it. Tehuti, Auset and Heru performed upon the mummy the Ceremony of the Opening of the Mouth, and Ausar was brought back to life through the gift of the eye of Heru, which Set had destroyed, but healed by Tehuti. Brought back to life, he was declared the Judge and King of the Dead, while Heru was to take his place as king of the living.
As king and judge of the underworld, meant that Ausar is to rule over the subconscious while Heru, the will is to rule over the waking state. Yet, it must be understood that the will must receive its direction from the indwelling Divinity – Ausar. This relationship is duplicated in the divine kingship throughout traditional Africa from ancient Egypt to present day African nations in which the kingship is still alive (Ashanti, Yoruba, etc.).
To understand Heru’s resurrection of Ausar by giving him his eye we must recall the role of the eye as a symbol of God’s omnipresence. As king of the external world (the waking state), Heru acts as Ausar’s means of perceiving what is going in the world. Thus He is able to direct the life of the individual, and nations. Take note that the resurrection of Ausar is the source of ‘the second coming of Christ.’
Set objected. He publicly complained, according to one account, that Heru was a bastard, and could not thus, be the legitimate heir to the throne. According to another account, he stake his claim to the throne on the basis that he was the strongest in the world. Might, he argued was the chief virtue of government. He also brought charges contesting the position of Ausar.
We see this today in secularism’s claim to be the legitimate guide to Man’s life in the world. It is a particular Setian maneuver to bring charges against others invoking laws that they themselves do not observe. It also prophesizes that the Setians will challenge the heirs of Egypt – present day Africans and African-Americans when they reclaim their Kamitic heritage.
Although Set, now emasculated, could have easily been disposed of by Heru through force, righteousness returned to the land with the return of Ausar, and Set was given his day in court. A great tribunal made up of 42 gods with Tem as leader and Tehuti as judge was assembled. As Set’s government was based on might, and pure deception where force could not be openly applied, his words were found to be untrue. It was shown that in most instances he contradicted and violated the laws he imposed on others. On the other side, Ausar and Heru had been shown to have lived by the laws they promulgated, thus they were found to be Maa Kheru (True of Word). Thus the “Great Quarrel” was settled on the basis of right over might. The night in which this great verdict was awarded is known in the Kamitic spiritual tradition as the Kerh Utchau Metut, (Night of Weighing Words).
This shows the way to victory over the powers that be. Force them to become 100% accountable to the laws and values they proclaim.
Set was sentenced to serve as the wind that propelled the boat of Ausar.
In the Kamitic tradition the wind is symbolic bot of motive force, and of the left side of the brain mental activity that gives us technological advancement. Thus Set was sentenced to broadcast the Ausarian religion around the galaxies.
