Hermopolis prayerbook

satdeshret:

I want a show about AE that isn’t about the Ptolemaic era or Akhenaten’s reign.

I want a show about Egypt that shows them as conquerers. As the great empire it was, not at it’s end.

I want one that’s historically accurate and maybe follows a kickass general or something.

I will probably never get that, though.

I once sent you a link to 1966 movie “Pharaoh” with english subtitles.
It’s not about greatest time in Egyptian history, but anyway it’s not Aekhnaten’s or Ptolemaic. And done with high level of historical accuracy.
I reccommend you watching this one.

Hermes
Biblical sacrifice, the idea of which we have become more or less accustomed to, is basically a negative gesture: it deprives us – and we willingly accept this deprivation – of something we reserve for God without his having a need or use for it. In Mesopotamia, on the other hand, sacrifice, offerings to the gods, were positive actions: what was given to them, they needed.

Yesterday as I was trying to have a conversation with Djehuty…

hellslittleexile:

YEAH JUST LET ME CLEAR THAT UP


I wasn’t actually saying that seriously. I’ve had little conversation with him so far, but as far as he’s expressed, as long as it’s in jest he doesn’t mind? I could ask him directly about it if its that big a deal, but I didn’t get the vibe from him that it was.

BUT YEAH IM NOT THAT STUPID TO CALL HIM THAT SERIOUSLY.

And I mean I guess? What he said to me was that he wanted to work on balancing my emotional side with my logical side, as I get a little caught up in the latter. He didn’t bring it up again, and it seemed kind of joking? I think he was joking. I really hope he was joking.

Balancing emotions and logic seems like a thing he totally may want to do. =)

me: *after some conversation* so do you accept me as a… follower or whatever the hell you wanna call it

djehuty: yeah yeah but nevermind that you have to stop being so idealistic because you have a choice to make

me: that… doesn’t answer my question but okay ill bite. what choice?

djehuty: between stagnation and moving forward, beyond your disability

me: disability?

djehuty: y’know, your victim complex

There’s a reason I sometimes refer to him as a feathery asshole.  But he also has this habit of pointing out things in yourself that you don’t want to admit and he’ll make you work on those bits of yourself. Like for me it’s the fact that I will hold grudges over the dumbest things.

idk man while i like his snark and sarcastic stuff idk what he means there cause i dunno the full story

he definitely points stuff out to me i do not like, like my jealousy and envy complex (which stems from feeling worthless)

i hope he is being helpful but idk by the way please don’t call him a “little *****” cause that won’t go over well with him

Bolding mine.

Really calling Him rude names wouldn’t benefit the relationship…
Lord of Terror really needs more respect from followers and potential followers … =)
He may be sarcastic and very bitter. But it’s better never make him angry. Because he really may be vengeful, again, I point out to the stories of Naneferka-Ptah and Khamuas. =)

To be fair I only call him a feathery asshole when I’m being silly with him. And he knows that if he told me to stop I would. I’ve never called him names in seriousness, so I mean…… Yeah

Yes, but also you are in established relationship =)
He knows you well and you know him…
And for newcomers, I would recommend to avoid giving to deities nicknames that may sound rude… it’s easy to step into a mistake.

if you have any pics of deir el-medina can you post them (and is it permissible to save them to my own computer if i do not share them)?

Most of my photos from Deir-el-Medina are in this gallery

How do you integrate the monstrous parts of yourself into your life without being overcome?  How do you embrace your entire soul to make it whole?

I use spiritual alchemy. Solve-and-coagula principle.
To transform the parts of myself that I don’t like, into something new and giving me spiritual growth. I don’t think that I need to accept all of my flaws, some of them, I learn to deal with, some of them, I try to overcome…
