"Divine Law Enforcement. Sphere 5 of the Tree represents that aspect of Spirit from which Divine Law is "enforced."
5- The 5th Faculty on the Tree of Life represents HeruKhuti, or divine justice. This faculty establishes justice in the world, *not by revenge or destruction, but instead by re-establishing the laws governing existence (MAAT). Divine justice within our being consists of making peace, balance and harmony gets achieved and restoring everything to god's divine order.
In the Kamitic tradition, the deity represented by this Sphere is known as Herukhuti. In the Yoruba, he is known as Ogun. The wrath of God (punishment) is exercised through this faculty, as is the love of God in its protective aspect. There is a balancing logic at work here. There is no law without means of enforcement, therefore Herukhuti is needed to complement Maat."
"# the Heart Chakra corresponds to The Ab, corresponding to Spheres 6, 5, and 4, which mediates between the divine divisions of the spirit above, and the mundane divisions below. It is interesting that we associate the heart with the qualities of Maat (Sphere 4), namely love, truth, generosity, sharing, etc., also of Herukhuti (Sphere 5), namely the "heart" of the warrior and athlete, namely bravery and the willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice, and of Heru (Sphere 6), namely the courage and indomitable will of the leader, who by example can "give heart" to his followers"
Ra Un Nefer Amen (author of Metu Neter Vol. 1)
I've traced the symbolism and myths of this newly discovered planet ERIS back to Kemet
ERIS and XENA - Athena
Neith in Kemet and Ath-enna or Athene in North Africa.
Athena was derived in large part from the Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) Goddess
Neith (notice that the two names share the same sounds in a different order).
Neith (Naita) Nu/Nuit, the Universe Nu, Nut, or Nuith
In Egyptian mythology, Nuit was the sky goddess.
She is the daughter of Shu and Tefnut and was one of the Ennead *5th member of the Tree of Life.
"Neith before me,
Neith at my right hand,
Neith behind me,
Neith at my left hand.
Neith within me,
Neith help me speak my truth."
ERIS, THE NEWEST PLANET (Awareness)
*very quickly the greek version then on to KMT
Along with the elevation to Planethood of 2003 UB313 (formerly known as Xena) now comes an official name: Eris, named after the Greek goddess that set off the Trojan war by throwing the golden apple into the circle of goddesses that would ultimately be for the fairest of them all.
SEE: But Eris is NOT a troublemaker (Chaos) as they make her out to be, nor the goddess of strife and discord, or Discordia.
NEITH = HERUKHUTI
Creator Goddess of Sais, mother of Sobek, "Lady of bows and arrows."
Neith (or Nuit, the feminine of Nu considered in its positive aspect) in his other half. He was the Spiritual Sun, the "Sun of Righteousness," whose son is the Sun. For "When the One becomes two, the three-fold appears."
Neith was the Virgin-Mother, "anterior to all the gods, without form or sex, who gave birth to itself and without fecundation." An ancient stele declares her to be Neut, "the luminous, who has engendered the gods." For the primordial substance is luminous -- the garment of light covering the darkness. So Neith of Sais was a weaver and made the universe of warp and woof as a mother weaves her children's garments.
In the Stanzas of Dzyan, "Father-Mother spin a web whose upper end is fastened to Spirit, the light of the one Darkness, and the lower one to Matter ...; and this web is the Universe spun out of the two substances made in one, which is Swabhavat." (S.D., I, 83). And we, too, having the same power to think and act, weave the web of our own world which often becomes an inscrutable net of fate instead of a vesture of light. Being connected with water, Neith was found on the prow of Egyptian vessels. Another form of her name is Naus (Latin navis, boat), hence the boat became a symbol of the container or vehicle of the sun. Neith is found in the oldest period at Abydos, to which Mariette Bey assigns the date of 7000 B.C.
Neith and Isis are interchangeable and we may find a hint as to the mission of Madame Blavatsky in the title of her first great work, "Isis Un-veiled," by referring to the famous inscription in the temple of Neith at Sais: "I am all that has been, and is, and shall be, and my peplum no mortal has withdrawn." Although a rent in the veil that conceals the arcane truths of the ancient Wisdom-Religion was made, mortal eyes are so blinded by false ideas, prejudice and selfishness, that they cannot see through it nor accept the ideas presented.
Neith (Nit) —creation goddess whose symbol was a shield with crossed arrows; representing Lower Egypt, she wore the red crown; mythical inventor of weaving, she was linked with mummy bandages; said to be a consort to Set and mother of Sobek; sometimes she was depicted as a sexless being, associated with the lake of Nun, the primordial waters of chaos before creation; her name means “primeval waters,” “one who is,” or “she who saw Atum’s birth”
a creator goddess, Worshiped at Sais, Nit has creation, war, and weaving influences. She also serves a protective funerary role, sometimes taking the place that Nebthet serves in Wesir's funerary preparation. Nit is also sought out for wisdom in myth, during the contendings of Heru (Horus) and Set, where she adjudicates that the throne of Wesir go to his son and Heir, Heru-Sa-Aset.
At all times, Nit was understood to be mysterious and abstract; in the late story called "The Contendings of Heru and Set," the other Names defer to "Nit the Great's" wisdom in resolving the conflict. Nit's city, Saw (G/R Sais), became a cosmopolitan center and capital of Kemet during the Late Period and during the Third Intermediate Period when Saite kings ruled, Nit's role as national Netjer flourished.
In these times and into Ptolmaic-Roman times She is considered to be the wife of Khnum, a creator-Name from extreme southern Kemet, and the temple of Khnum and Nit at Esna contains many depictions of Nit along with the lates-fish sacred to Her cult.
The Egyptians believed her to be an ancient and wise goddess, to whom the other gods came if they could not resolve their own disputes.
Nit was probably linked with the crown of Lower Egypt due to the similarities between her name, and the name of the crown - nt
Associations to a beetle
There are certain signs that in the Predynastic days she was associated with the large click beetle, which was common in the Nile valley. Her symbol then consisted of two beetles depicted head to head over two crossed arrows. It is unknown why Nit was linked to this animal, later this symbol was interpreted as a shield and from the 1st Dynasty the sign of a tied pair of bows linked her with the name 'Mistress of the Bow'.
"For I have looked on you as Heru looked on Aset,
I have looked on you as the Snake looked on the Scorpion,
I have looked on you as Sobk looked on Nit,
I have looked on you as Set looked on the Two who are reconciled."
"that I may protect you, even as Nu protected these four goddesses on the day when they protected the throne, namely Aset, Nebt-Het, Nit, and Serqet-hetu..."
Nit in Myth
The myth tells of her intervention when Aset (Gr: Isis) and Nebt-Het (Gr: Nephtys) are forced to work in a weaving house by Set. Through the negotiations of Djehuty (Gr: Thoth), Nit agreed to let her own weavers take their places so that Aset and Nebt-Het could be freed from Set´s imprisonment . In this capacity she also carried a weaver's shuttle as a symbol and was sometimes known as "She Who Saw Tem's Birth"
In another myth, the 'Contendings of Heru and Set' she is called upon by the other gods to judge in the conflict between the two deities about who should inherit the throne of Egypt, because of her great wisdom. Here she is called the "eldest, the Mother of the gods, who shone on the first face". What is really implied with this, more than that she was regarded as being older than all the gods, we cannot be sure of, since much mythological material about her might have been lost to us.
It's important not to just get upset at the Verdict, but to do something about the problems, the inner core problem (Social Paradigm), to find real solutions.
*These next blogs I will share some on solutions
2012 represents Universal Consciousness (WE) and awakening to a collective awareness of equality and a Oneness of all people
and how the internet plays a part in this...and why i continue to Brand Kemet and KMT (Metaphysics)
bringing a higher and deeper awareness; of peace, love, equality, abundance, etc for all people,
true brotherhood and sisterhood awareness, mother and father relations, parent and child relations, and so on ...off spring
awareness, no matter what color, culture, sexual orientation, etc.
It's important to offer real solutions, not just getting upset, rebelling, smashing windows and protest....
many talk about the likes of MLK, Malcolm X, and even Ghandi (the three were shot)
and how much has changed? On many levels a lot, and then again, a lot hasn't.
And yes, thank god for these men, yes, non-violence, but that doesn't mean just sit idly by
We must protect our homes, family....and our rights
We have to begin at the beginning, the whole system is flawed ... Prison is producing more criminals and more injustice (is that what jails are set up for?)
on a conscious level, yes, we have made strides, but an even deeper newer paradigm is needed....
I believe our ancient culture provide solutions for everyone. KMT
it's up to us, all of us
we have to participate, in a collective awareness
it' still hard to be accepted, the majority of African Americans still deal with many discrepancies, stereotyped character and behavior....I believe that's whats factoring into Oscars injustice. and why so many are upset.
it happens all the time, but this time it was caught on tape for the whole world to see, so it's more than this particular case
There can be no Justice (HERUKHUTI) without Harmony (MA"AT) and no Harmony without Justice, Morality, and Balance
We could bust down window stores and protest all we want, but nothing will change, unless we do... it's about changing our paradigms
a paradigm shift
the system and the judicial system are just so messed up, I had to go to court yesterday for someone else and the way i was treated was just unbelievable.
Racism is FEAR, and fear is just not having enough information (and also guilt), and they don't even seem to realize, Peace

Bart Police shooting in Oakland KTVU report
POLICE SHOOTING AT BART STATION - OSCAR GRANT
Whatever the Verdict: The Whole Damn System Is Guilty
There are plans for a convergence in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway at 6 pm on the day the verdict is announced. People need to be there and elsewhere to respond politically to the verdict. And the LA Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant is calling on people to gather at the courthouse (at Spring and Temple) on the day of the verdict. To be notified of the verdict, text “TRIAL” to 213-973-3434.
It was the outcry and protest of the people, in many different ways, including on January 7, 2009, that forced the system to arrest and bring murder charges against Mehserle. The law fundamentally enforces a system of inequality and exploitation, including the oppression and subjugation of Black people, and “legitimizes” violence the police use to maintain the whole set-up.
the truth is the people acted with conscience and vision when they said “we are all Oscar Grant.” Protest was needed and justified. It made a big difference. And the people’s verdict must also be heard.
a myth of the heart intelligence, not literal
Western propaganda of the Human Sacrifices of the Aztecs
Conditioning us to look on the natives as inhuman, degrading, and one of the first things I think about when i reflect on Aztec history
making us think they were savages.
I would say 80% of all African Americans have native blood and ancestors
History Of The Olmecs, Native Americans, Mayan, and their African Origins
NONE of this ever happened!...all BS, and gave reasons to lable theses wonderful spiritual people as savages
HUMAN SACRIFICE AMONG THE AZTECS? LIES
An aura of lurid fascination surrounds our interest in the Aztecs, the people who, at the beginning of the 16th century, inhabited one of the largest cities of the world: Tenochtitlan. In 1521, this metropolis was erased from the face of the Earth by the Spanish conquerors under Hernando Cortes and his Indian allies. As a justification for their destructive acts, the conquistadors generated propaganda designed to offend the sensibilities of their Christian audience: They described the Aztec practice of human sacrifice.
The only concrete evidence comes to us not from the Aztecs but from the Mayan civilization of the Yucatan. These depictions are found in the records of trials conducted during the Inquisition, between 1561 and 1565. These supposed testimonies about human sacrifice, however, were coerced from the Indians under torture and have been judged worthless as ethnographic evidence.
Along with the written accounts, many archeological finds--sculptures, frescoes, wall paintings, and pictographs--have been declared by the Spanish, their Indian converts, and later anthropologists to be connected to human sacrifice. Yet these images are in no way proof that humans were in fact sacrificed.
Until now, scientists have started from a position of believing the lies and hearsay reports and interpreting the archeological evidence accordingly. The circularity of such reasoning is obvious. There are plenty of possible interpretations of the images of hearts and even killings in these artifacts.
They could depict myths or legends. They could present narrative images--allegories, symbols, and metaphors. They could even be images of ordinary executions or murders. Human bones that appear to have been cut also do not serve as evidence of human sacrifice. In tantric Buddhism, skulls and leg bones are used to make musical instruments used in religious rituals; this is in no way connected to human sacrifice.
The heart is a symbolically important organ in more than just European cultures. In the Indian languages, as well, it is a symbol of courage and the soul. And "cutting the soul from the body," after all, is not a surgical operation. This may explain why no massive catacombs with what would have been the bones of sacrifice victims have ever been found in Mesoamerica.
After careful and systematic study of the sources, I find no sign of evidence of institutionalized mass human sacrifice among the Aztecs. The phenomenon to be studied, therefore, may be not these supposed sacrifices but the deeply rooted belief that they occurred.

Ptah, KMT, origins of Buddha (Putah or Phutah)
AFRICANS IN ASIA (Really Good) video Documentary
Buddhist Cosmology (buddha dog star*)
The concept of Buddha.
The word "Buddha" denotes not just a single religious teacher who lived in a particular epoch, but a type of person, of which there have been many instances in the course of cosmic time.
The Buddha Siddhartha, Gautama then, is simply one member in the spiritual lineage of Buddha's, which stretches back into the dim recesses of the past and forward into the distant horizons of the future.
Some European scholars have chronicled the truth, the origins of religion and culture and put it squarely in the lap of Africa as it should be. But, they are being systematically discredited along with African Scholars. Today we will look at the origin of the Buddha.
Buddha was not a name but a title meaning Enlighten One, Blessed One, or to Become awake. Over the centuries there have been several chronicled Buddha's, Gautama, Sakayanumi, and Siddhartha.
The name Siddhartha according to Barbara Walker - Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets:
...Siddhartha - the last again, not a name but a title, "Rich in Yogic Power."
These enlightened ones were Africans as attested to by Sir Williams Jones, he called them Cushites. These are excerpts from the book Anacalypsis by G. Higgins.
There was a great nation of Blacks* formerly possessed the dominion of Asia, and held the seat of empire at Sidon. These must have been the people called Cushites or Cuthites, described in Genesis; and the opinion that they were Blacks is corroborated by the translators of the Pentateuch, called the Seventy, constantly rendering the word Cush by Ethiopia. …'
The religion of Buddha, of India, is well known to have been very ancient. In the most ancient temples scattered throughout Asia, where his worship is yet continued, he is found black as jet, with the flat face, thick lips, and curly hair of the Negro.
There are two exemplars of him brooding on the face of the deep, upon a coiled serpent. To what time are we to allot this Negro ? He will be proved to have been prior to Cristna. He must have been prior to or contemporaneous with the black empire, supposed by Sir William Jones to have flourished at Sidon.
"The Buddha was said to have miraculously begotten by the Lord of Hosts and born to the Virgin Maya. [Maia, Marah, Mari, Maria]."
Again Gerald Massey and the goddesses:
"The genetrix represented as Dea Multimammia - the Diana of Ephesus, is found as a black figure, nor is the hue mystical ONLY, for the features are Negroid as were those of the black Isis in Egypt."
What does this mean? All the Goddesses, including Mary were African in origin brought to all continents by way of an African Priesthood. India is included when I speak of Africa.
There are hundreds of personality traits and
tendencies that make someone “good material” for a
successful long-term relationship. But according to
relationship experts, there is one trait that is more
important that all others. Mastering verbal intimacy
is the most important indicator of whether a person is
right for you and ready for a serious relationship.
For the person who is dating and seeking a partner to
pursue a successful relationship, there is no more
important task than determining if your current date
has the ability to share themselves verbally on a deep
and intimate level.
Psychologists emphasize “verbal” intimacy, the sharing
of our deepest fears, dreads, joys, and inner
experiences as a great way to learn about the interior
of our potential partners. They also share 3 things,
which must be present for true verbal intimacy to
begin and flourish.
#1 You must know who YOU are.
Many adults, and especially men, are complete
strangers to themselves. When asked to describe their
feelings on certain subjects, they are unable to
answer, practically unable to even understand the
question. This kind of numbness often starts in
childhood when children are told to “act like a man”
or to “stop crying” because “you’re not hurt.” These
messages tell children to ignore their inner signals.
Over many years, these individuals will become
oblivious to what they are feeling.
To be able to share yourself deeply you must know what
you’re feeling. It is vital that you understand
yourself before you have the capability to be an equal
partner in a satisfying, verbally intimate
#2 You must have a desire to know each other.
We all know certain individuals that seem fixated on
themselves. These narcissists may momentarily ask an
inane question about you and your life, but they
quickly direct the conversation back to their
accomplishments. This tendency is also often a result
of a childhood imbalance. If you grew up in a home
where no one really seemed interested in you, you may
have developed into an adult that loves to talk about
When you meet someone who has a great desire to sit
and actively listen to you talk about yourself, this
is an excellent sign that this person is geared
towards expressing verbal intimacy.
#3 You must make space for verbal intimacy.
Verbal intimacy is most likely to flourish when stress
is low, relaxation is high and the phone is off. No
one needs to be reminded about how cell phones,
pagers, and computers have made it easier for us to
carry work home and elsewhere. Time that used to be
personal time by default can now be turned into work
time. For verbal intimacy to grow, the frantic pace of
our lives must be slowed. We must make time for long
walks and quiet dinners. Sometimes we feel guilty for
making this space in our schedules, but no
relationship can become a brilliant one without a
dedication to the verbal intimacy concept.
A relationship can start without verbal intimacy. It
can continue for months and sometimes years without
either partner giving time or consideration to its
benefits. However, over time almost every relationship
will go flat, that is lose it spontaneous excitement,
unless both partners commit to enhancing their verbal intimacy.
Self Love and Self Esteem
My Declaration of Self-Esteem - "I Am Me"
In all the world there is no-one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose it.
I own everything about me; my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself - I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes, because I own all of me.
I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me and other aspects that I do not know, but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me.
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do - I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.
I own me, and therefore I can engineer me - I am me and I am okay.
The Power Of One
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, IT'S UP TO YOU!
