Purity has been on my mind as of late. Aset is having me take baths instead of showers and as I soak in water mixed with salt and baking soda, a little by little my energy blocks loosen, unfurl and I am purified. I am aligned again with my souls. All my soul-parts. Yes, including my body for the body is a part of the soul.
Purification isn’t a stagnant state. It isn’t perfection. Or a moral or a value judgement.
It is renewal. It is cleansing and cleaning the body and ka, the ib and ba.
It is from a place in which everything is aligned in equal harmony, in equal balance. It is a place of power and renewal, a place of calm strength and inner knowing. A place of fierce joy and fierce pain. This is where the heart can flow and emotions pour out. For even pain is sacred. Just as much as joy is sacred. This is where our kau can flow into ourselves and into our ancestors and to our Gods.
This mirrors the sunrise and sunset, the transformation of Ra as He travels in the night to be reborn at Dawn. This is where our souls align. This is the Mystery of the transformation of Nut, who is the night sky which devours the sun-god in her watery realm and through her trials, the god emerges, whole and renewed. This is a Mystery of the Ka.
And this is how we become ourselves. Everyday.
