We Walk With You

My religion has many creation myths and all of them are true.  They tell us about creation.  Atum masturbated and Ptah spoke and everything was created. The Celestial Cow as Mut or Hethert or Mehet Weret or Nit gave birth to the sun god Ra and as She spoke everything was created.  Aset spoke the Word in the Beginning as did Nit and everything was created.

The other Gods, the air in the form of Shu, moisture in the form of Tefnut; Geb and Nut in the forms of earth and sky.  Ma’at and Life in the forms of Ma’at, Tefnut and Shu.    Ra, Shu, and the Eye Goddesses gave birth to light.  Wesir, Heru Wer, Set, Aset and Nebet Het were born and thus more was created by them.

Do you not see?  One became many.  Creation cannot exist without differentiation.  There are many Netjeru for a reason.  For each job to be performed, someone must be equipped to do it.  Some of Us have the same job, yet do it differently.  To borrow a phrase: Diversity is Our Power; Unity is Our Strength.

All of nature is touched by these Gods and Goddesses.  Sunbeams are Ra, Mut, Tefnut, Bast, Sekhmet, Aset and other solar Goddesses.  The air you breathe is Shu or Aset. The earth you stand on is Geb.

Ra and His Family Devotional

Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra and His Family

by Chelsea Luellon Bolton

Ra (Re) is the ancient Egyptian God of the Sun.  He is the creator of the world, Gods and Humankind.  He is both the warmth of the sun and its fiery, scorching rays.  He is the one who travels through the sky during the day and through the Underworld at night, culminating in His defeat of the Evil Serpent.   He merges with Wesir (Osiris), the King of the Underworld and renews the afterlife and creation.

He has many forms and syncretisms with other gods.  He has many daughters who bear the title “Eye of Ra” which means they are His guardians and protectors who harness the fierce power of sun to dispose of enemies and evil forces.

Contributors can explore:

Ra as the creator of the world

Ra as the Creator of Humankind

Ra as the God of Kings

Ra as the Lord of All or Lord of the Limit

Ra and His Forms (Khepri, Ra and Atum as Morning, Noon and Night)

Ra and His Syncretisms (Amun-Ra, Atum-Ra, Khnum-Ra, Wepwawet-Ra, Sobek-Ra, Osiris-Ra, Ra Heru-akhety/Ra  Horakhty)

Relationships with Ra and His Consorts (Hathor, Sekhmet, Bast, Nephthys) and as Amun-Ra (Mut)

Relationships between Ra and His Daughters (Bast, Sekhmet, Mut,  Aset/Isis, Tefnut, Hathor, etc)

Relationships between Ra and the Celestial Cow/Mehet Weret (Forms: Neith, Hathor,  Aset/Isis, Nephthys, Nut)

Relationships between Ra and His Sons (Anubis, Wepwawet, Shu)

Updates

Here is an update about my projects.

Almost Published

Lord of Strength and Power: Ancient Hymns for Wepwawet.

At the Formatters

Holy Praise, Holy Power:  Poetry for the Holy Powers.

Works-in-Progress

I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns for Aset from the Temple of Dendera.  We’ll see what they say.  I’m still waiting.

I have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence:  An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am still waiting on some submissions. 

A third hymnal  or anthology for Aset/Isis.  I  don’t have a working title yet.

A Devotional for Ra and His Daughters:  Solar Flares and Sunbeams.

Maybe a  hymnal or devotional for  Sekhmet.  I have to check on some permissions.

Possible Future Projects

Something for Serqet.

Athena, Bibliotheca Alexandria, Books, Frigga, Goddesses, Gods, Hekate, Hera, Hestia, Orisha, Publications, Work-in-Progress, Writing

Update

I have sent the Wepwawet book, Lord of Strength and Power to the formatters!  I decided to take the Anubis section  out since  I wanted  this to be just about Wepwawet.  I can send  the Anubis material to  Bibliotheca Alexandrina and see  if  they need  it.

I have also sent another poetry book to the formatters.  This is a companion  to Divine Words, Divine Praise.  It  has poems  to Athena, Athena and  Zeus, Athena and  Poseidon, Hestia, Hela, Hekate, Frigga, Hera and Zeus, and many Orisha (Oya, Yemaya, Oshun, Osanyin, Shango, Obatala, and Nana Buruku).  I’m calling it  Holy Words, Holy Praise.  I’m hoping to come up  with a better title.  It sounds pretentious to me.

Updates on Projects

In case you missed it, I have published Magician, Mother and Queen.

I have finished and am preparing to publish another poetry book. The title of this now is Divine Words, Divine Praise:  Poetry of the Holy Powers.  I have sent it in to the formatters.

I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset from the Temple of Dendera.  We’ll see what they say.  I’m still waiting.

I have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence:  An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am still waiting on some submissions. 

I am compiling a compilation of scholarly papers I wrote in Graduate school (and afterward) about various goddesses, Orishas and a saint (Mary); and I have one other essay about women’s healing and talismanry (I know it doesn’t fit, but I have no idea where else I could publish it.  I may take it out and publish it by itself. I’m not sure.).   I’m thinking of making this into another book.  My working title is Holy Lady, Holy Queen:  Papers on the Feminine Divine.
