    IMHO,:hearts2:

    A. the one gift that our ancestors out of antiquity put out there that can not ever be destroyed: as evidenced by the many who are emerging to "again" embrace this ancient of ancient ideologies.

    Ma'at is...the exact opposite of what "we" who now live in what is known as the Matrix (e.g better known as White Supremacy) are borne into, experience, know and practice by osmosis.

    Ma'at is...an important link in the 11 Laws. You are the tree of knowledge in good and evil with Ma'at ranking number 5 on your sequential chain or command from top 2 bottom there are:

    Amen
    Ausar
    Tehuti
    Sekher
    Ma'at*
    Herukhuti
    Heru
    Het-Heru
    Sebek
    Auset
    Geb

    Ma'at is...7 Principles -- that were also manifest, established and maintained from within the minds of our ancestors who set about embellish Ma'at many centuries ago. They are:

    Balance

    Harmony

    Justice

    Order

    Peace (Ma'at Hetep is Supreme Peace)

    Reciprocity

    Truth

    Ma'at is...42 Negative Confessions ~thoughly written and practiced by those of the Ancient Ta-Meri Culture who successfully reached into our modern culture to mentally ~~capture, express and counsel those who accept its eminently familiar truths as identified in every single facet in our lives today.

    Ma'at is...a true people of humanity created the conceptual framework known as Ma'at. Know that before the world needed saving -- this "ancient" idea existed. Maybe now that the world needs saving (e.g. here, I am not referring to the religious adjunct known as soul saving, as I am speaking wholestically.) a new true people of humanity will again restore the world to its former state of peace.

    Ma'at is...because no one is going to restore you but you...individually and collectively...! {e.g. did I just non-intentionally stick self-salvaton in there?}

    For me, I would say that Ma'at, considering the fact that it is symbolized by the Woman, overall would mean PEACE.

    Being at Peace [with self first, then with everyone else, followed by nature] would be the beginning of carrying out the Laws of Ma'at. On a deeper level, I would study the origins of Ma'at from ancient times.

    Hi Kwabena...!

    Yes "peace" is a great discription and one of the seven principles revered by these great people, our ancestors.

    Ma'at was the "rock" of Egyptian Law that held morals and ethics in place in ancient times -- 2 attributes very much missing today.

    Ma'at was digested by the Ancient Egyptians as more of a concept than a literal reference to The GODDESS. Of course the GODDESS was first and the GOD was added later when barbaric people invaded Egypt and imposed their own beliefs upon these people.

    To date this concept has never been surpassed
