    Strive for abstention
    And "right intention" (1)

    As in a noble mind wrought
    With "right thought" (2)

    Be careful to teach
    Employed with "right speech" (3)

    Let wits never desert
    Instilling "right effort" (4)

    With whole not by fraction
    Applying "right acton" (5)

    Receiving by giving
    Through "right living" (6)

    Unfeared mortality
    With "right reality" (7)

    Never doubting but commanding
    Assured "right understanding" (8)

    Never to foolishness succumb
    Adhering to "right wisdom" (9)

    For a bygone people
    Numbers played a major role
    Every aspect under digit control
    As 9 parts even divided one's soul

    Back then, even the much maligned 13
    Wasn't deemed obscene
    But rather denoted Re-Birth
    It was only later when other men
    Changed its worth

    These are the Nine Principles of Right
    Many embraced and met
    A living, daily reminder not to forget
    And today, many civilizations
    Are patterned after
    The spirituality....Of ancient Kemet.

    the righteousness is assigned the righteous...

    ...and, like us, they must be forever vigilant...on guard against satan's workshop, and workers. they must be grounded in right, with their foundation solid. SHARE your LIGHT. TEACH the ways of RIGHT. i hear you.
