History
Origin myths among the Hausa claim that their founder, Bayajidda, came from the east in an effort to escape his father. He eventually came to Gaya, where he employed some blacksmiths to fashion a knife for him. With his knife he proceeded to Daura where he freed the people from the oppresive nature of a sacred snake who guarded their well and prevented them from getting water six days out of the week. The queen of Daura gave herself in marriage to Bayajidda to show her appreciation. She gave birth to seven healthy sons, each of whom ruled the seven city states that make up Hausaland.

By Drusilla Dunjee Houston, 1926 [Edited]

This is a pioneering, long-lost, work of Afrocentric history. Drusilla Dunjee Houston, (1876-1941) was a teacher, journalist and self-taught historian. Houston undertook a life-long quest to discover African history from an African-American perspective. However, at the time that Houston wrote, history was viewed through a Eurocentric perspective.

CHAPTER II. OLD ETHIOPIA–ITS PEOPLE.

The Greeks looked to old Ethiopia and called the Upper Nile the common cradle of mankind. Toward the rich luxury of this region they looked for the “Garden of Eden.” From these people of the Upper Nile arose the oldest traditions and rites and from them sprang the first colonies and arts of antiquity. The Greeks also said that Egyptians derived their civilization and religion from Ethiopia. “Egyptian religion was not an original conception, for three thousand years ago she had lost all true sense of its real meaning among even the priesthood.” Continue reading

Alive In Death

sam-mosher-lois-greenfield-1995Alive in Death
By Sekhemu, 2006

The words “death” and “the dead” are used in the old scriptures to refer to living humanity in earthly embodiment. We scurrying mortals are the “dead” of the bible and other sacred books, but it is past our prerogative to read a meaning into their books other than the one they intended; or to read out of them a meaning consistently deposited therein. It is perhaps the cardinal item of the whole theological corpus, the real “lost key” to a correct reading of the subterranean meaning in esoteric literature. In ancient theology “death” means our life on earth.

Be the figure apt or be it considered unthinkable- as it will be at first by many- the texts of scripture will yield their cryptic meaning on no other terms. And the Bible is a sealed book mostly because of those words, “death” and “the dead” have not been read as covers of a far profounder sense than the superficial one. Continue reading

Auset and HeruDecember 25th Unwrapped
By Kwasi Imhotep

Many of us have been raised to believe, as an article of the Christian religion, that Jesus Christ was born on December 25th, or Christmas day. But, not many of us are aware of the ancient Kemetic (Egyptian) origins of the December 25th religious festival, or what it truly represents, and the fact that it has nothing to do with the Christian religion, or Christmas. In fact, December 25th, is not, nor has it ever been, the birthday of the Christian god, Jesus Christ!

The verifiable historical facts surrounding the 25th. of December are as follows: Continue reading

Beast of Ego

Fine Art - pixiportWhat is Ego?
By Metaphysics (2008)

“I live, yet not I, but the inner Christ [HERU = heart consciousness] – the eternal Logos – liveth in me. ” (Gal 2:20).

“This blog photo recalls an old Zen story, about a lion who was brought up by sheep and who thought he was a sheep until an old lion captured him and took him to a pond, where he showed him his own reflection. Many of us are like this lion-the image we have of ourselves comes not from our own direct experience, but from the opinions of others. A ‘personality’ imposed from the outside replaces the individuality that could have grown from within. We become just another sheep in the herd, unable to move freely, and unconscious of our own true identity.” -Zen Tarot

The first thing to be understood is what ego is. Continue reading

Isfet Unveiled

By Metaphysics (2009)
[Edited]

What’s isfet?

Isfet is a form of destructive chaos, uncreation, un-naming. It is personified in Apep (Apophis), the great serpent that tries to devour the sunboat while it is travelling in the underworld at night. As such, the great serpent which we all, Names and humans alike, fight each day. It is imbalance or impurity, destructive power, and worse – it’s “uncreation”. How isfet manifests in each person’s life will be different, but many people can identify the sort of turmoil that leaves them feeling undone, as if their sense of self is being stripped away and destroyed, their sense of identity: that is isfet. Isfet acts counter to ma’at. Continue reading
