    The Ancient Egypt Online link should take you to the website, not a blackhole!


    Thanks to Caelia for pointing that out to me :-[

    The Pyramid Texts Online is an incredible source. While I do question some of the translations, they do provide groundwork for wording certain steps in your own rituals:

    It's an adjective for the word Kemet, which is what the Ancient Egyptians called their land. It means "Black Land" in reference to the silt from the Nile. The word is used to describe the practices of those from Ancient Egypt. If I recall correctly, the word started showing up in the '70s.

    Re: Kemetic Resources

    I happened upon the actual scroll of the Papyrus of Ani, which amazed me since Budge cut it up. It doesn't appear to be translated, but for those inclined to practice their linguistic skills you'll have a heyday with it:

    For those who want more translation practice and to get some idea about birthing rituals (ok, that part is debatable), here's a link to the Westcar Papyrus.

    In my stroll across the internet I found a link to a bunch of Egyptian videos. This site is chocked full of info, but I was really drawn to this video. Robert Brier is very notable for his Egyptological research on mummies, so when I saw they had a video on the site I had to share:

    Caelia...this is more of a question than anything, but...

    I found this on FB--is it reasonably legit historical? Or is it modern UPG of some sort?

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    It's a more "modernized" with some of the negative confessions outright inaccurate. Lemme see if I can find a link to better convey. I'm not liking the googlemancy results because it's Budge, but it's a starting point until I can find the Faulkner translation).

    ADD: I should really look at the links more closely. Here you go.
