the black woman is god! to merely respect the great black woman is a trivial thing; indeed she is to be worshiped as a living goddess! we are to wait on the black queen as a servant, to kiss her feet, to bow in her presence. we are to love and adore her more than life. for she is life! she is creation, and she is love, history most african cultures, including that of ancient kemet are matrilineal. this means that ones identity is through his or her mother. the mother, the black queen, is the creator, the life force, the sustainer and the producer of life and ones identity. “you know that in our country there were even matriarchal societies where women were the most important element. on the bijagos islands they had queens. they were not queens because they were the daughters of kings. they had queens succeeding queens. the religious leaders were women too, ” —amilcar cabral, return to the source, 1973 in kemet, rulers were often pictured with their mothers and ruled equally with their queens. “it is said to be the custom among the nubians, when a king dies and leaves a son, and also a nephew, the son of his sister, that the latter reigns after his uncle, instead of the son, ” –abu salih, the armenian the black queen in ancient kemet shared civic duties with her male counterpart. from the african perspective the feminine energy is glorious and vital! in both the bible (exodus) and the quran (sura), it is spoken that shortly after being led out of egypt, the israelites constructed and began worshiping a ‘golden calf’. upon further inspection, it is obvious that this ‘golden-calf’ is in fact the kemetan cow goddess hetheru (see below). after spending so many years in kemet and observing the complex practices, culture and spiritual system of the egyptians (a system thousands of years in the making, with roots from the nubian people of kush — the egyptians were children and a colony of the kushites), it would be thought that moses would understand that the kemetans were not ‘idol worshipers’. that the image of the cow goddess only symbolically represents the nourishing and life-giving energy; the same energy in the black woman, the same energy that is an aspect of the all-encompassing transcendental god (neberdjer). so the israelites were in fact emulating a kemetian practice; the practice of devotional veneration to both the black woman, and to god! it has now been undisputably proven that the human race originated in africa. we now know that all humans can trace their roots to a family in africa. we know that the first mother is an african woman. the beautiful black queen is the original woman, the mother and creator of us all. goddesses aset: she is the feminine energy of the divine (father-mother-son) trinity (asar-aset-heru). she embodies powerful aspects of the feminine energy: love, wisdom, healing and nurturing. after being dismembered by set who represents uncontrolled passions and worldly desires, the many pieces of asar’s body were scattered across the globe. aset now embarked a long quest of devotional love in which she successfully found and collected the pieces of asars body. with this energy of love and healing she healed his body. after this resurrection, aset becomes impregnated by the spirit of asar. she gives virgin-birth to the prototype hero heru: the conqueror of the lower (wordly) self. heru attains divine-consciousness (identification with the higher self) and defeats set (ignorance) by doing battle with maat(truth, justice, righteousness). aset was said to have been a darkskinned child and was called khnemet-ankhetí (the living lady of love). ttere are statues throughout europe, especially greece, depicting aset as the prototype madonna. in these statues, she can be seen holding and suckling the baby heru. the mary-jesus relationship and personalities are based on this black madonna prototype. nebethet: the sister of asar and aset. she represents nature and death. she represents the illusion of the physical world. nebethet represents the lower nature, and the mortal life: that which lives and dies. her sister aset is the complimentary aspect of existence: enlightenment, the transcendental and immortal reality of the divine and the spirit; the true essence, that which is eternal and abiding. the path of the aspirant is to become heru (as mortals, to become aware of our eternal essence, to identify with the divine, the immortal sustaining spirit that lives in and supports all of nature and creation). to become one with heru is to eventually become one with with asar (pure consciousness, pure spirit). while asar’s union with aset (cosmic consciousness and wisdom) produced heru, his drunken union with nebethet (nature) produced anpu (inipu). so to become asar is to attain a transcendental consciousness that knows both the spirit (aset) and nature (nebethet).
