Ancient Egypt: Maat Principles

"Egypt" comes from the Greek word "Aegyptos" which means "Black". The ancient Egyptians called their land "Kemet" which means "Black". It is the root of our words "chemistry" and "alchemy". Egyptologists have focused primarily on the wonders of the pyramids and temple. The students of Kemet have rediscovered the mind, heart, and soul of the people that allowed their high civilization to last thousands of years and inspire all parts of the world -- down to the modern day.

The Kemetists focus on the 42 Principles of Maat which is a very profound understanding of how to maintain harmony with the cosmos and nature and in society. They provide guidelines for the behavior of the pharoah to the average person. The principles are documented in a number of books including Maat: The Moral Ideal in Ancient Egypt by Maulana Karenga and The Egyptian Philosophers: Ancient African Voices From Imhotep to Akhenaten by Molefi Kete Asante.

The basic principles are shown further below. However, these books draw on The Declarations of Innocence of The Book of Coming Forth By Day, The Declarations of Virtues, and The Book of Khunanpu which are the central moral texts of ancient Egypt. Karenga summarizes Maat as three ideals: 1. the ideal of knowledge including a love of science 2. the moral ideal of truth, justice, and rectitude 3. the metaphysical ideal of love and the knowled  ge of Being which is at the beginning of all being. Maat is a philosophical, moral, and metaphycial ideal as well as an ecological one.

These researchers are rediscovering in Maat the guidelines that the modern world forgot and must now adopt to raise our consciousness, become enlightened, and restore justice and balance. Ra-Teir-Eir, in his choice of Ambassador Micca of the Olmecs may have been directing the attention of the world back to these ancient principles which got corrupted by the Illuminati because the Olmecs carried Egyptian culture to the Americas. The first step might be to rediscover the Prinrciples of Maat which made culture of Egypt so stable and enlightened for so long.

The Egyptian Sun God Ra is closely associated with the Egyptian Goddess Ma'at (Maat)!
