This is probably my most visited blog title…PERT EM HERU. So I want to revisit it and make addenda, hopefully I have made some personal evolution since I first wrote it. First, Pert Em Heru was the ancient book the Africans wrote and many Pharaohs were buried with. When the european disrespected the burial sites of these ancient Africans, they found these books with them, so they erroneously called them the “Books of the Dead”. The Africans called them “Pert Em Heru”…Coming forth by Day and Night. To COME FORTH means you are still evolving. To come forth by DAY and NIGHT represents BALANCE! However to move it to a metaphysical state…DAY means knowledge and NIGHT means ignorance, but night can also mean STRUGGLE. So out of ignorance and struggle, when you are exposed to knowledge…you COME FORTH! This is why existentialism is so important, because through existentialism your existence and development is completely and totally your responsibility.
So you actually have to be a MASTER OF SELF! You can’t be a master of self if you have a Pastor or leader over you. If you FOLLOW a leader your development is based on what your leader knows. If your leader is deficient on a particular subject, most likely so will you, how you come to conclusions will be how good a student of this leader you are. You must see YOURSELF as God, as a master who is in the process of BECOMING. If you think this type of thought process is blasphemy then you might as well stop reading now. If in your Bible Jesus says ” Ye are Gods, children of the most high God”. Then what will the children BECOME when they mature?
We all are in the process of BEING, which is the study of Ontology, but what are you in the process of being? Who are you becoming? To DEFINE who you are, you must go through DAY AND NIGHT. From your PRESENT ignorance and struggle…. you must seek knowledge. However many of us run from struggle, we seek least resistance. We never want the winter of our own existence, we want the days to be always sunny. When you do seek knowledge, it’s not about reading a fucking book….YOU BECOME the book!
Adam and Eve who ate from the Tree of Knowledge, HAVE BECOME like US, knowing good and evil, this is God in Genesis talking. God for some damn reason gets upset with this news and puts them out of the garden of Eden. Now why the fuck would God of the Bible have a problem with his children BECOMING like him? Unless like a REAL devil he wants ALL to remain ignorant so he can continue to RULE over them. Pert Em Heru is the human BEING through the law of cause and effect, through success and failure, through ignorance and knowledge, they are learning how to exist. They are learning how to BECOME greater than they were yesterday. They are not afraid to be a MASTER OF SELF. They have come into existence to BECOME a God!
POWER TO THE GODDAMN PEOPLE. RA FOR LIFE/MAAT FOR BALANCE
