The 42 Oracles Of Maat

14 Abalon 3336

Dear siblings in faith,

I recently stumbled across this and thought it was very interesting. Maat was the ancient Egyptian concept of order and harmony, and also a goddess. Her principles are still followed today by Kemetics. In our faith, she could very easily be seen as a face of the Jana Lady Justina. I really like how all of these laws come down to respecting God, respecting the land, respecting those around us and respecting ourselves.

These Laws of MAAT are also known as the Declaration of Innocence. They are drawn from the “Pert Em HRU” (the Book of Coming Forth By Day) the oldest Afrikan book of holy scriptures.  With these laws our Ancient Ancestors maintained a society without policemen for thousands of years.  In the early morning say “I will not…”  In the evening say “I  have not…” This is our mental inventory.”
