Religions duty of care to the faithful
Faith is one of the most important things that we have in our lives.
We all have our own personnel views of our faith as we all have our own patron God or Goddess who gives us inspiration in our lives.
Religion has been one of the main strengths of society from the very first man.
It has the power to bring together different factions and levels of a society and in so doing can bring help when needed to those…Continue

Are ancient principles relevant today.
The other day I was in a very interesting discussion with followers of the Kemetic faith on the concept of Ma at and the way we should live our lives today.
Many questions came up that made me think about the whole thing and also how we in the modern world should look at these concepts that were laid down thousands of years ago when much of what is around today never existed.
One of the questions that came up was is Ma'at …Continue

Gay marriage right or wrong?
I was talking to some of the Kemetic Federations followers today and the subject of gay marriage came up. Not surprising really as this is a hot topic in France at the moment with their parliament debating the subject.
We talked for a while on the matter and the main question that we kept on coming back to was who says that the joining in legal marriage is wrong and why is it wrong.
Well the first bit was easy for us to answer both the christian…

Delhi gang rape case moved to fast-track court
The case of five men charged with the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman in Delhi has been moved to a fast-track court for trial.
When I first heard of this horrific crime against an innocent women I was thrown into sorrow and despair to think that any human could commit such a horrific act against another.
WHY would any man think that they have any right to do this to a woman. It is a very sad fact that not only…

British Airways cross case winner Nadia Eweida 'jubilant
This headline is one that we should all have concerns about if we truly want to have a world that is equal and free from prejudice and hate.
Although we in the Kemetic faith do not have any problems with others showing the symbols of their faith the fact that this along with other cases went to the courts in a attempt to force others to accept these symbols and ideologues is some thing that we should all…

When we fail in life.
We all fail in life, the great lesson the netjar teaches us is not to despair when we do but try again and again until we do.
For the greatest achivement is not the getting there but the fact that we did not give up,

If you look into your own heart,
If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?
If we act in life with a good heart toward all then we will truly be able to do this.
For if we have acted out of the goodness of our hearts to all then we will never have to fear others for that goodness will come back to us.
Spiritual leader of the Kemetic Federation and Faith.

They must often change who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
At a first glance most of us will have a puzzled look on our faces and think what is this all about.
But then have a look at the things that the Netjar have shown us and we will begin to see what the words mean but also how they are relervent in our lives today.
A wise person is someone who sees that we have to change and grow through out our lives. This in turn will put happiness into our…

What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
These are words that many faiths share but this does not take from their true and important meaning.
As people,, fellows bothers and sisters, no matter what our faith ,sexuality ,gender or nationality to live by these words is one of the greatest steps that we can take to bring harmony to each other and the world as a whole.
So just take a second each day and think of the actions of the past day.
If you had been…

Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
An interesting statement and one that as a follower of the Kemetic faith I can totally understand as this is one of the things that we are shown by the Netjar in their teachings.
At first the meaning may not seam clear to us but if we look at it and take the time to think you can find the message.
Virtue is a important attribute in our lives we should do all we can to try to have virtue in all things…

Prayer alone will not bring a happy society
We all pray to the Gods some of us everyday others less often. It is not a set thing when we should pray but in our prayers we will almost always ask the Netjar for something.
There is nothing wrong with this and they will listen to our prayers but prayer is not a force of great power. We will never move a mountain by prayer alone.
Prayer is a way to focus the mind by praying to the Netjar they are getting us to focus…Continue

Uganda charges British producer David Cecil over gay play
In a modern world that has been forged by the fight for human rights and justice for all no matter what their race colour faith or personal relationships how can such a headline exist.
The very fact that it comes from a nation who has had to fight for its own rights only gaining freedom and equality after defeating the forces of bigotry and racism.
How can it be that in the light of these facts of history…Continue

Show tolerance, respect & forgiveness of our failings.
We all have failing. That is the way the Netjar created the world they even had failings during their time here in this world.
When we look around us we see others failing. Do we truly see our own and if we did would we change the way we judge others.
Yes I think we would. This is the key. First of all look at your own failing then you will see that the failings of others are not that different from your…Continue

To make a more peaceful world we have to develop a concern for others.
To build a more peaceful world has been the aim of humanity from the dawn of time.
Today we seam to be further than ever from this great goal. Why is that? Why do we get so near only to fail.
Well we can find part of the answer on the Kemetic teachings that answer is to show a genuine concern for others as all times.
I think that everyone can honestly say that they have shown concern…Continue
When we stop blaming others and accept responsibility true change will happen.
How many times have we said how mad some ones actions make us and that it is all the fault of this person or that person that this has happen.
True they do play a role in the problem and problem.
But the answer is not in handing out the blame to others the answer is accepting responsibility our selves.
For true change to come about we need to not only say who is to blame but…Continue

We need to relate to each other across the world in harmony and peace.
Words that are easy to say but seam so very hard to bring to reality.
Many have looked to find the path that will bring us all to this point when we all relate to each other connect with each other and recognise each other for our common humanity.
In fact there are organisation today who seek this very thing as we speak and are failing to achieve their basic goals. Could this be due to the…Continue

How can we work for a more peaceful world?
This is one of those questions that we all have asked over time. People have been asking it for as long as there has been people on this great planet of ours.
Over the centuries, we have looked to Gods to mystics to the stars in fact all over the place and yet we still have not found an answer.
Many have been so close to the answer but have been pushed aside by those whose own fortunes and powers depend and have in the…Continue

Education must be of both the brain and heart.
One of the most important roles that we as adults have is to educate our children. It has been so from the first steps of humanity. It is not only humans who have this role it is all things.
If we do not give our young a good education then they cannot grow and prosper in life.
Along with the important act of educating the mind, it is so simple for us to forget that we also have to educate the heart as well. If we…Continue

Anger is not our friend it is a destroyer of all thing good.
It would be a lie if any of us were to say that we never get angry sometime and when we look back, it is normally the silliest of things that have made us angry.
No matter how much we try in life to improve our inner and outer selves we will always have small faults after all the Netjar were not perfect when they were in this world and they would never look to us to be perfect either.
But there is a…Continue

Our children are important they are the future.
These words I think we have all heard many times and may have said them a few times as well but have you really put any real thought into them and their real meaning.
In many different parts of our world the importance of safeguarding our children is looked on in different ways. It is very much dictated by the local culture.
Yet we all have one aim and that is to try to bring up our children to be good honest…Continue
