    If yu need a God, yu need a Goddess….Now, that being a fact, what’s, wrong with God RA? What’s wrong with Goddess Isis or Goddess Hathor? If, in fact, yu believe in God and the Goddess or the Diety, what’s wrong with the original ones? ---His highest Honor, Yosef ben Yochannan

    If yu wish to walk in the majestic ways of the ancients, one of the first steps taken must be to reconsider yor conception of Deitess. There are many enlightened initiates who mistakenly believe that the attributes of "God"-namely, the “Sun,” could hardly be, in all actuality, the immortal God of the universe. I’m not saying they deny God, they jus happen to have been persuaded by a different set of information which unfortunately directs them to imagine, formulate and conceive of “Gods” not included in their ancestors unbroken ancient history of more than 100,000 years.

    Our dear Brotha Akhenaten was not faced with that misinterpretation of Deitess. And in fact if we study the Hymn that our Brotha wrote to the Solar Deitess, we can glean from it one of the best descriptions of the ancient Deitess. He says:

    Thou appearest beautifully on the horizon of heaven,
    Thou living Aton, the beginning of life!
    When thou art risen on the eastern horizon,
    Thou hast filled every land with thy beauty.
    Thou art gracious, great, glistening, and high over every land;
    Thy rays encompass the lands to the limit of all that thou hast made:
    As thou art Re, thou reachest to the end of them;
    (Thou) subduest them (for) thy beloved son.
    Though thou art far away, thy rays are on earth;
    Though thou art in their faces, no one knows thy going.
    When thou settest in the western horizon,
    The land is in darkness, in the manner of death.
    They sleep in a room, with heads wrapped up,
    Nor sees one eye the other.

    All their goods which are under their heads might be stolen,
    (But) they would not perceive (it).
    Every lion is come forth from his den;
    All creeping things, they sting.

    Darkness is a shroud, and the earth is in stillness,
    For he who made them rests in his horizon.
    At daybreak, when thou arisest on the horizon,
    When thou shinest as the Aton by day,
    Thou drivest away the darkness and givest thy rays.
    The Two Lands are in festivity every day,
    Awake and standing upon (their) feet,
    For thou hast raised them up.
    Washing their bodies, taking (their) clothing,
    Their arms are (raised) in praise at thy appearance.
    All the world, they do their work.
    All beasts are content with their pasturage;
    Trees and plants are flourishing.
    The birds which fly from their nests,
    Their wings are (stretched out) in praise to thy ka.
    All beasts spring upon (their) feeet.
    Whatever flies and alights,
    They live when thou hast risen (for) them.
    The ships are sailing north and south as well,
    For every way is open at thy appearance.
    The fish in the river dart before thy face;

    Thy rays are in the midst of the great green sea.
    Creator of seed in women,
    Thou who makest fluid into man,
    Who maintainest the son in the womb of his mother,
    Who soothest him with that which stills his weeping,
    Thou nurse (even) in the womb,
    Who givest breath to sustain all that he has made!
    When he descends from the womb to breathe
    On the day when he is born,
    Thou openest his mouth completely,
    Thou suppliest his necessities.
    When the chick in the egg speaks within the shell,
    Thou givest him breath within it to maintain him.
    When thou hast made him his fulfillment within the egg, to break it,
    He comes forth from the egg to speak at his completed (time);
    He walks upon his legs when he comes forth from it.
    How manifold it is, what thou hast made!
    They are hidden from the face (of man).
    O (solar) god, like whom there is no other!
    Thou didst create the world according to thy desire,
    Whilst thou wert alone: All men, cattle, and wild beasts,
    Whatever is on earth, going upon (its) feet,
    And what is on high, flying with its wings.
    The countries of (…)and Nubia, the land of Egypt,
    Thou settest every man in his place,
    Thou suppliest their necessities:

    Everyone has his food, and his time of life is reckoned.
    Their tongues are separate in speech,
    And their natures as well;
    Their skins are distinguished,
    As thou distinguishest the foreign peoples.
    Thou makest a Nile in the underworld,
    Thou bringest forth as thou desirest
    To maintain the people (of Egypt)
    According as thou madest them for thyself,
    The lord of all of them, wearying (himself) with them,
    The lord of every land, rising for them,

    The Aton of the day, great of majesty.
    All distant foreign countries, thou makest their life (also),
    For thou hast set a Nile in heaven,
    That it may descend for them and make waves upon the mountains,
    Like the great green sea,
    To water their fields in their towns.
    How effective they are, thy plans, O lord of eternity!
    The Nile in heaven, it is for the foreign peoples
    And for the beasts of every desert that go upon (their) feet;
    (While the true) Nile comes from the underworld for Egypt.
    Thy rays suckle every meadow.
    When thou risest, they live, they grow for thee.

    Thou makest the seasons in order to rear all that thou hast made,
    The winter to cool them,
    And the heat that they may taste thee.
    Thou hast made the distant sky in order to rise therein,
    In order to see all that thou dost make.
    Whilst thou wert alone,

    Rising in thy form as the living Aton,
    Appearing, shining, withdrawing or aproaching,
    Thou madest millions of forms of thyself alone.
    Cities, towns, fields, road, and river --
    Every eye beholds thee over against them,
    For thou art the Aton of the day over the earth....
    Thou are in my heart,
    And there is no other that knows thee
    Save thy son Nefer-kheperu-Re Wa-en-Re,

    For thou hast made him well-versed in thy plans and in thy strength.
    The world came into being by thy hand,
    According as thou hast made them.
    When thou hast risen they live,
    When thou settest they die.

    Thou art lifetime thy own self,
    For one lives (only) through thee.
    Eyes are (fixed) on beauty until thou settest.
    All work is laid aside when thou settest in the west.
    (But) when (thou) risest (again),
    [Everything is] made to flourish for the king,...
    Since thou didst found the earth
    And raise them up for thy son,
    Who came forth from thy body: the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, ... Ak-en-Aton, ... and the Chief Wife of the King ... Nefert-iti, living and youthful forever and ever.

    Here are a few parts from that Hymn (which incidentally was re-mixed in Psalm 104 )we can give further attention to:

    A) Thou hast made the distant sky in order to rise therein,

    B) Thy rays encompass the lands to the limit of all that thou hast made

    C) When thou shinest as the Aton by day,

    D) Rising in thy form as the living Aton

    E) Appearing, shining, withdrawing or aproaching

    Peep the similarities and the frequencies of how the Dietess is being described. In D we see how the Aton, to us, appears in the morn, “Rising in the form as the living Aton.” In C, we read the words “When thou shinest.” We obviously know what shines. C is complimented by B which speaks to how distant the rays shines: “ Thy rays encompass the lands to the limit of all that thou hast made.” E is interesting because it describes the Solar Dietess' orbit.

    Defining characteristics of a God is demonstrating an unchangeably eternity in its unlimited and mysterious power.

    No wonder then of all the “Gods“ worshipped throughout ancient history, there is but one that was/is virtually the common denominator to them all. The Japanese adore the sun disk as the feminine gender known as Amaterasu. Interestingly too is that Japan’s official insignia on their flag is the solar disk.

    Before the modern Persians, Iranians, gave homage to Allah, they held Mithra, the Sun God, in high esteem.

    We could go on to speak about the Romans, Greeks, Hindus, Babylonians and so on concerning virtually all walks of life who did, or still do, give worship to the Solar Deitess.

    The power of the Sun is beyond the grasp of human imagination. A single solar flare can release the energy of 100 million hydrogen bombs. Enough to fuel the North American continent for a hundred thousands years.

    One of the things the would-be initiate must overcome is that tempting feeling of reluctance to embrace the ancient belief becuz othas choose to walk in what’s most popular on this earth-at this time. Noah too attempted to persuade but the “Gods” of the times had more control ova the minds of the people. So the would-be initiate must go into deep study and query their ownselves about how serious they are about being psychologically free. About their relationship with Deitess. Becuz carrying various torches for modern religions is not freedom, no matta how militant yu may sound, no matter how expensive yor cuff links may be. No matta how hard the fish tries, it mus get its source from H20.

    Yu must know that Afrikan people were born within the context of light, literally, not figuratively. And that when yu see this ligh rise everyday, its more to the rise than vacationing. It demonstrates a convenant to the ancient people and their progeny. In a figurative sense, its the 'bat signal' in reverse. The Deitess shows yu her presence to relax yor mind, heal yor body and elevate yor spirit.

    This is the original and most ancient truth, that’s why Dr. Ben asks:

    “What’s wrong with God RA, what’s wrong with Goddess Hathor?” His point being that yu say yu wanna follow the real deities; yu say yu are a God and Goddess; yu say yor spiritual, and, Dr. Ben continues:

    “If, in fact, yu believe in God, the Goddess and the Deities,” he says, then “what’s wrong with the original ones?” In other words, how yu gon try to deny what’s right in front of yor face. Of all the “Gods” claiming eternity, there is but one still alive that’s been giving yu life since yu were born (in addition to everybody else yu know), so how can yu deny this truth?

    What is yor justification for rejecting the eternal Solar Deitess and instead reach out for persons who have either expired or neva existed in the first place? And yu should know this too: jus becuz someone has a large following, does not necessarily mean they are being guided by truth. Dont forget David Koresh in Waco.

    There is no religious organization in practiced today, in any part of the world, that can rival in time, purity or essence the complex structure of the Solar mystery. And when those continue to worship untruthful or fictious beings, the Solar Deitess is still the only one alive.
