UPENDO: THE FOUNDATION OF LIFE


UPENDO: THE FOUNDATION OF LIFE

Should one study the composition of creation, one would find that the foundation is based on the underlying principle of UPENDO [an inadequate transliteration would be the English word love, but for cultural reasons to be discussed at another time this term is inadequate. A better equivalent is the Ancient Kemetic Metu/Word] MRY].  The greatest expression of UPENDO is to be found within the relations of NETER [God THE MOTHER & FATHER] and Humanity.  For though mankind has continuously walked contrary to the divine moral law of Maat as a result of acculturation into a de-spiritualized, vampiristic Culture, NETER, in spite of this blatant disregard of moral principles, continues to carry out the Existence of Humanity.  Thus, the greatest UPENDO is that UPENDO that is given without expectation of something in return and 'in spite of' of the actions of the recipient.

The highest earthly expression of UPENDO that is given 'in spite of' is found in a true, meaningful relationship between a woman and man.  This relationship is characterized by Complementarity, a  burning desire for one another; complete faith in each other; determination and persistence through times of harmony and travail; a knowledge in the pricelessness of each other; true reliance one upon the one another; enthusiasm for each other; inspiration by each other; and, the developing of two personalities that are pleasing to the self and each other resulting in a complementary whole. UPENDO is culminated in the spiritual, mental and physical union of the two.  It must be understood that there is a difference between making love and having sex and the difference  is that where there is a manifestation of the above mentioned  characteristics and their culmination then there is the art  of 'making love' resulting in the KHEPERA [creation] of ANKH [life] and where these are lacking there is lust and  the act of 'having sex'.                                             

It is within a true, meaningful relationship of a woman and man that these words ring true:
I.
"Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:  for love is strong as death. Jealousy is as cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it:  if a man would give all the substance of his house for love,  it would utterly be contemned." [Song of Solomon 8: 6-7]

II.

LAND OF THE SCEPTRE!

NONE SHALL CAUSE ME HARM:

NONE SHALL HARM ME!
I COME FORTH FROM THE BLACKNESS ADVANCING AND ACHIEVING!

Without true, meaningful UPENDO the relationship between a woman and a man would fail and a lack thereof, between NETER and Humanity  would cause Humanity to cease to exist as would all of creation. It is through this virtue of UPENDO that the ills of the world could be healed; however, it is certain that this will be accomplished only by the intervention of the NETER through each of us a minute expression of an aspect of the essence of the Divine. When that occurs through the renewing of our minds we shall manifest as Auset and Ausar.
