Ta-Merri Glorious Light Meditation

Translation of the Hieroglyphic text of the Glorious Light Meditation
(from the book "Glorious Light Meditation" by Dr. Muata Ashby)


"Whosoever shall recite the words, here written,
with conscious awareness of Djehuty {mind with clear and keen intellect}
shall perform the rituals of sevenfold purification over 3 days {the seven psychospiritual centers}
which are to be performed in the Divine presence,
when this book is being read {studied, recited, remembered} (1)
And they shall make their position in a circle which is beyond them,
And their two eyes shall be focused upon themselves,
All their members shall be composed [relaxed, motionless]
And their steps shall not carry them away [from the place of meditation] (2)
Whoever among men shall recite [these] words
Shall visualize themselves as RA
On the day of his birth
And their awareness shall not become contracted
And his house shall never fall into decay
But shall endure in truth and righteousness
For eternity



INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE HIEROGLYPHIC TEXT

(1) -- Posture and Focus of Attention

Posture is one of the main components of the meditation practice. The text prescribes
a sitting position within a circle. Then it instructs that there should be a focusing of
the mind between the eyebrows. This area is also known as the sixth energy-consciousness
center. All members of the body, the arms, legs, etc. Should be motionless.

Posture: Be seated in a comfortable posture. You may create a circle figure in which to sit or
simply visualize that you are seated within a circle. See yourself at the center of the circle
which comprises the Sundisk of Ra, and see yourself as the source of all that is. The place you
use for meditation should be clean and free from drafts, dimly lit (preferably use a candle to
symbolize the innerlight. Incense may be used also. Use a mat, sitting comfortably with back
straight. This special area should be used only for meditation and you should practice at the
same time daily.

[Meditation postures: cross legged, half or full lotus sitting position;]


Introduction to the Seven-fold Cleansing; the Serpent Power and the Teaching of the Life Force:
(pg. 124)

The concept of the Serpent Power, a Life Force contained in the subtle body of a human being that
operates through the nervous system of the subtle spine and which has seven primary foci of energy
consciousness comes down through Ancient Kamitan history from the Great Sphinx to the teaching of
the Asarian Resurrection and is iconographically expressed central shaft of the balance scales of
Maat, in the pillar of Asar and in the Caduceus of Djehuti by the divinities Asar (his backbone)
and the two serpent goddesses Aset and Nebthet. The movement of the Serpent Power/Life Force is
described by the special text (see book "The Serpent" by Muata Ashby). The Sefekh Ba Ra (energy
centers) or "seven souls of Ra" wherein Life Force energy and consciousness are transformed from
subtle to gross energy for use by the body are seven in number.



Continuation of the Translated text of the Glorious Light Meditation

The words of power of the scripture and the
chant are a special protection {against
unrighteousness and negativity}. Through the
words of power "Nuk Hekau" { I am the Divinity
of the Word} the divinity purifies in the two
months of Ra {phenomenal/transcendental} gods
and goddesses such that "Nuk Ra Akhu" {I am Ra's
Glorious Spirit [Light]}. As Ra, I move in the
evening and the day as a shining Spirit {living
(in light) and not in death (darkness). Enemies
of the light {Unrigheousness, darkness, ignorance,
vices, etc} fall because Nuk Ba Ra Hekau {I am the
soul of Ra, the Divine Word, that transforms (into
the Shining Spirit [The Glorious Light])



INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE HIEROGLYPHIC TEXT

(2) -- Words of power

The papyrus instructs that after having read and recited the story one should assume a specific posture
and adopt a specific visualization. The story of the papyrus (Destruction of Humankind) is as follows:

Ra (Supreme being) created the world and human beings.
After many years they became arrogant and spoke evilly
about him. They forgot about his greatness and about their
own origins. Ra decided to punish them for their egoism and
sinful behaviour and so he sent out his eye of destruction ['death star', causing the 'flood'...KwameD's emphasis]
in the form of Hetheru to kill all sinners. He then recalled
his eye before it could kill all human beings and then he
retreated to heaven where he traverses in the form of the
sun and installed his vicar to watch over the world during
the night in the form of the moon.

Psychic Powers

Psychic powers are any for mf mental achievement and they may or may not be related to spiritual achievement. The attainment of a college degree, for example, is a psychic power but it is done for worldly achievement (magic). The development of psychic powers for spiritual attainment require purity of heart (a mind which is free from passionate desire for worldly objects or achievements). All psychic powers, however, require some level of mental concentration in order to attain them. The ability to concentrate may be improved through practice of mental concentration exercises, meditation and practicing the virtues.

Forgiveness is a most important psychic power. The ability to forgive one's self and others for one's mistakes is essential. There will be many "failures" on the spiritual path. These are merely tests of help strengthen one's resolve and to raise consciousness and wisdom. If we take life (relative reality) so hard and forget the greater picture (absolute reality), we because preoccupied and un-forgiving. Bitterness and mental unrest become constant companions and higher spiritual evolution becomes impaired. Life becomes a constantly miserable experience in which there is always fault with something, therefore mental peace is seldom, if ever, possible.

Introspection and self analysis are good ways to discern one's motives and actions. Only you can decide if you acted on the basis of the lower self (SET, emotion, ego, body desires, guilt and fear) or if you acted out of the BA, the higher self (HERU, Maat, light, righteousness).

One of the greatest psychic powers is to be able to control one's emotions. It is said emotions are great servants but poor masters because intense emotions cloud the thinking process. Emotionally based actions usually promote detrimental results in which one becomes further embroiled in unwanted situations. These unwanted situations, when dealt with again in an emotional mammer will lead to further entanglements in the world of relative reality. Most people live in this way, acting and reacting based on their uncontrolled mental state which produces a cycle of alternating pleasurable or painful situations, both of which lead to mental agitation (unrest).

Patience is another important psychic power to develop. Patience is necessary for the task of spiritual growth, since it may take years to correct negative subconscious thought patterns learned in this life or in previous lives.


The Highest Psychic Power

Proper sublimation of the Life Force which is developed from the sexual energy center can increase the creative power if used for MAAT. When directed to the divine, psychic power can lead to union with the divine, NETER. This union may be seen in the Egyptian principles of: Heru and Set, Asar and Aset, Min and Hetheru, the Sun and the Moon as well as the East Indian deities: Krishna and Radha, Shiva and Shakti (Parvati), Ganesha and Siddhi. This union also represents the marriage of cosmic energy and earth energy (Spirit and Body). Both energies are of the same nature and differ only in their polarity. This union also represents the marriage of cosmic energy and earth energy (Spirit and Body). Both energies are of the same nature and differ only in their polarity. This, when they are united, they revert to their primordial state which is beyond polarity. The earth energy (Geb) rises from the base of the spine and reunites with heaven (Nut). When this occurs, the energy consciousness center at the crown of the head opens and one becomes anointed with the Life Force energy produced from the union of the male principle and the female principle. This is the highest psychic power, where one becomes an anointed one.

The elephant deity and faculty, "Ganesha", of Indian Hindu mythology symbolizes the awakening of sexual fire (the fire that urges us to live and endure) and spiritual ideals, and also, the opening of the way, creating auspiciousness in one's spiritual discipline. Invoking Ganesha enables one to attain peace of mind for meditation. The attainment of what Ganesha symbolizes are Siddhis or supernatural powers. Ganesha is one of the presiding deities at tantric rituals and is invoked before any spiritual or worldly undertaking. In the Egyptian system, the deity Anpu fills the role of "Opener of the Way". Geb, Min, and Asar are usually represented as the symbols of fertility and erectile power.

The Indian god Ganesha, with an erectile phallus and his consort, Siddhi who holds his penis with her right hand. Psychic powers are "given" through the sexual organs, through the development of sexual energy.
