    The Pert Em Heru is a book of the journey of the soul of man. We don’t have to be convinced that the events in this book are THE actual experiences that await us after death to gain valuable spiritual insight from this book. In fact, if we think carefully we will find that a lot of what we will read therein is pertinent to our present life.

    On his journey Ani comes to several gates. These gates are the crossroads—the moments of truth where the character is tested. At each gate Ani is able to make a negative confession: I have not done this or that. Just when he may start thinking he’s the cat’s pajamas the two headed lion meets him and says hold on. You haven’t passed MY test yet.

    Sometimes our own lives seem to follow the same path. A path of tests. Just when we start to think we aren’t so bad and everybody likes us, a thought, a word, a failure, a disappointment of some kind occurs that leaves us feeling like a waste of good skin that crawled into the gene pool while the life guard wasn’t looking. At this time we may feel tempted to concede to depression and feelings of ultimate worthlessness. But this is the time to reaffirm all the knowledge we have gained—our connection to the ALL and our place in God’s creative plan.

    Everyday we stand in the hall of Ma’at. Despite what others may think of us, good or bad, our hearts are weighed in the scale of our own justice. In that hour we are Tehuti, recording onto our subconscious the verdicts. A heavy heart brings heavy judgements. And in that hour we are Ammit, devouring our own heart from withine with recriminations and negative self—assessments. Yet in the morning we rise up, reincarnated in the flesh of rekindled hope and new insights, new resolves to walk a better path.

    Sister River ... thanks for sharing! I've not read any of this yet, but i see the name Ani mentioned above, and this information regarding him / her as well ... so i will read that and come back with more questions i'm sure!

    Ani is male or female?

    While i'm preparing to read, can you (or anyone) tell us more about Ani?

    :heart:
