Ma’at is the Kemetic divine principle that represents law, order, and love. it is interesting that they put law and love together in the same principle because in their philosophical view law was not about force and punishment. Instead, it is/was the natural outcome of love which is, in the words of Ra Un Nefer Amen 1 , the expression of our oneness with each other and with God.
Unlike the 10 Commandments, the 11 laws of God are not a finite list of Dos and Donts. Instead, they are principles which the Creator set in motion so we can live a victorious life if we live by them.
Western culture has programmed us to go from pleasure to pain, pleasure to pain according to circumstances outside our control. We seek to maximize the circumstances that bring us pleasure and minimize the ones that bring us pain.
Kemetic spirituality teaches us that many of the emotions we experience are programmed reactions to circumstances. The Creator has given us the tools to deprogram and reprogram our reactions so we can instead respond in a way that is conducive to our spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health. We go from pleasure to peace to pleasure to peace. Isn’t faith enough to do all this? Don’t be afraid, to be honest. We know many people who believe very strongly that God has provided all their needs and yet they have no lasting joy or self-control because they are constantly waylayed by emotional ups and downs So we must learn to rise above emotions.
The Kemau recognized the Self as the true individual with the personality as the part of our makeup which houses our emotions and can be programmed. Society has already programmed us through the media to be “conformed to this world.” Isn’t it time for us to start programming ourselves to be “transformed by the renewing of our minds?”….Asé
