Peace to the Gods and Goddesses of the foundation;

Much love goes to New York City;

And mad respect to London;

If you haven’t read An Ancient Egyptian Relation and The Mother of Exhibitionism I would suggest you read them before getting too deep into this blog post.

As we should well know, in ancient times Moses was born in Egypt. Well, Moses, according to popular tradition, was sent by the Pharaoh (the Peraa or the Horu) Amenhotep III to Ethiopia as a general in the Egyptian army.

Now as by ancient cultural rites the tribal king (chieftain) was usually also the tribal high priest, we have here a credible account to verify Numbers 12:1 where Moses married an Ethiopian, as the historical records in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia confirm it.

But the link and union between the Hebrews, the Egyptians and the Ethiopians were more than just marital.

To be sure, the actual likelihood of the real ancient Israel being in the current Israeli settlement is in itself somewhat doubtful as Egypt back then had possession of that territory.

The vanity of fleeing from one part of Egypt into another part of Egypt would have been doubled by running right back into slavery or re-conquering by their provincial rulers.

In fact, the only place in that vicinity not possessed or occupied by Egypt was Ethiopia, as the interaction between them and Egypt was more one of perpetual brotherhood never one of servanthood; and one of contest never one of conquest.

In fact, the Egyptians even used to call Ethiopia Ta Nissiy (the Apocalyptic land) and Ta Neteru (the Holy land or the land of the gods and goddesses).

All historical accounts also make clear that the original Hebrew language was a form of ancient Ge’ez (Ethiopic) based on hieroglyphs, before the Babylonian captivity, when Ezra the priest re-created a more Khaldean and Aramaic version of Hebrew for the Babylonian exiles to relearn their ancient culture and traditions.

Thus we see the possibility of finding the historical Moses opened up, or at least made closer than ever before.

Moses’ own monism would in this sense have been the result of what he learned from his father-in-law in Ethiopia: simplicity, oneness, peace, naturality and nonattachment.

The religious implications of this conversion would ultimately affect the then known world and beyond through the Aakhu-en-Aten (or Akhenaten) revolution.

The historical Moses is believed by some to have been Djehut-Mosu (or Thutmose IV), the brother of Aakhu-en-Aten.

Aakhu-en-Aten in his great religious revolution went on to dispose of the then Trinitarian cult of Ptah, Sekhmet and Min; and established a purely monistic school based on the worship of the Aten, whose hieroglyph was the sun-disc.

All this ties into what we’ve been going over so far with Hethor through the tradition of the seven Hethors.

After sending her resurrected husband alone into the Dwat (or underworld), Auset was forced to flee from the wrath of her brother Setek.

She then took on the wings of a great eagle and escaped to the bulrushes of the Nile awaiting the time her child would be delivered.

When the child was born the seven Hethors, manifestations of Hethor that foresaw future events like the fate of a child, instructed Djehuti, the god of law both in heaven and on earth, to go to Auset and say: “Come, O goddess Auset, it is good to be obedient, for there is life for him that will follow the advice of another.

“Hide the male-child Horu, for it shall come to pass that his limbs shall grow, and he shall be empowered with two-fold strength, and then he shall be lifted to the throne of his father, and shall avenge him; and his name shall be: the Prince of the Two-Lands.”

Even so, the daughter of the Amenhotep III finding the Hebrew child by the bulrushes would have immediately inspired images of this tradition, carved in stone in Egypt over four thousand years ago; for which cause the name Djehut-Mosu was quite fitting as it means child of Djehuti.

Obviously, the adult Djehut-Mosu would have in this sense been like the European missionaries who came to Africa and Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries; captivated by the beauty of their innocent simplicity.

Then after telling his father Amenhotep III of his experience and new culture Amenhotep III quickly instructed his son Amenhotep IV to accept the idea of the Aten as the central God.

Amenhotep IV’s conversion and destruction of the then priesthood under the name Aakhu-en-Aten only reinforces the legend. Thus, showing the inherent spiritualism and monism within the Afro-Asiatic soul.

Even when we return to the story of Horu, who, tired of his case getting rejected and the stubbornness of the tribunal, particularly of Ra – who to demonstrate his own ambivalence went into hiding – chose to go to his father Ausar for help.

But when the messages sent by Ausar seemed to meet the stubborn moanings of the tribunal, Ausar gathered together the hoards of hell and of the entire Dwat.

He even prepared the ancient serpent Apop, who was the most feared of the daemons, and who even Ra was powerless against, and promised Ra that if he did not grant his son the justice that he himself was denied he had an army of daemons who feared neither god nor goddess.

Indeed, all the gods would one day die, and even Ra himself would have to enter the Dwat to stand before his judgment seat, but the hoards with Ausar were already dead and therefore were immortal.

So through the militarism of Ausar in the Dwat and the seductionism of Hethor in the heavens, Ra came to the conclusion that Horu was the rightful heir to Ausar’s throne, as Ausar’s testimony took precedent over Setek’s kinship position.

In this Horu was given authority over all the kings of the earth, that is, over Egypt, and chose for Hethor to be his wifey and main chick, as she was the goddess who supported him from the beginning.

Here the Horu also represented the one who carried the key to the Dwat of his now dead father; showing the key to Ausar’s agricultural paradise, called Sekhet, was held by the Horu; who only allowed those to appear before his father’s judgment seat who he deemed worthy.

At this point their heart would stand trial before Ausar, who sat seated on the square of morality, holding in his hands the rod and the staff.

Those who passed Ausar’s judgment could enter Ausar’s paradise; those who didn’t had their heart swallowed by Ammit – a monstrous combination of crocodile, lion/leopard and hippopotamus.

And as Auset and Hethor are usually standing beside him at his judgment Hethor is also titled: Queen of the damned and Queen of the West (the West being symbolic of the Dwat).

Effectively, another good way for black women to become Goddesses is through learning and mastering third eye vision. Like the seven Hethors they should learn to read the fate of individuals and groups.

One of the most effective ways the seven Hethors would explain the fate of individuals was through their dreams. Basically, the seven Hethors would talk to someone in their dreams.

For black women to learn to interpret visions and dreams they must learn to see in the astral, and the best way to do that is through third eye vision.

Basically, the more black women learn to use their third eye the more they will learn to predict the fate of individuals and groups.

It will not come easy and there will be some mistakes at first, like learning to crawl, but over time they will get better at reading the will of God through third eye vision just like the seven Hethors.
