Drumroll, please…

I’m a daughter of Bast, beloved of Seshat-Nit-Nebthet.

*clap track*

Is there anybody surprised?  No?  Didn’t think so. Smile with tongue out

I promise to make a more head-type post like I’m accustomed to (and we knew that that was coming too) but for now I’d just like to rejoice.

I also had some messages from my Akhu and there were generally good tidings.  I am happy to have some communication from them and look forward to developing my relationship with them more.  I’m also going to have to look into those other aspects of Seshat as I have no experience and little knowledge of these other netjeru.

NEKHTET!  Thank you to Rev. Siuda!

ante-rational thought

with one comment

I wanted to expand further on some of the ideas that I explored in an earlier post on ante-rational henotheism.  Wim van den Dungen has another article on his website about this form of cognition that I would like to work out and summarize here.  I apologize if I make any mistake or not explain clearly the ideas presented here, since although I’ve had some philosophical training, I haven’t tackled epistemology in depth.  Yet. 😉

A devotional journal

leave a comment »

As part of my spiritual growth, I decided to create a blog to map out some of my thoughts and keep notes that I can search later on.  The thing is, with all the research I do, I don’t often set aside a time to write digestible essays/write-ups (is that redundant?) and hence my fallible memory will end up forgetting certain details.  This is ungood.  An online blog is preferable to a written one because 1.) I will never lose it, 2.) I type much faster than I write, 3.) I’m completely anal about cleanliness and would hate to ruin a perfectly good journal by my writing in it, 4.) SEARCH FUNCTION, 5.) this might actually help others with their own spiritual path, in which case…yay!

Although Bast is my primary goddess (and she will eventually get her own post with all the due glory that will require), I would like to dedicate this blog to Seshat.  She is a goddess who excels at record keeping, writing, architecture, wisdom/knowledge, measuring, history, recording, etc.  Basically, she is, at least in my experience, a pretty bad ass librarian type with great taste in clothing (leopard print dress?  Nice).  I’ve asked her to come hang out with me while I do some research work before, and with her help, have come across things in their time for which I give her due honor.


To you Seshat, I offer this your Eye of Heru, that it may sustain you in Maat.
