No "Either-Or"
February 17, 2014

I found this quote at

“Either-or thinking in critical analysis is almost always problematic, but in analyzing Kemetic thought, it is rarely, if ever, useful.”

- Maat, The Moral Ideal in Ancient Egypt, by Maulana Karenga

There is no "either-or". There is not "Left Hand Path" vs "Right Hand Path", for in truth we have two hands. One is the path of Heka (magic), and one is the path of Religion.

Religion is about Relationship. If I desire ("I desire"= MY WILL), relationship with the Gods, both hands come together. If I have decided the path of greatest happiness is the path of service (to serve the cause of Ma'at, to understand that we are not isolated beings, or as U.U.s word it "Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part."), then both hands come together.
