African Spiritual Science: The Ausar principle simplified
Ausar is a really simple principle or universal law
Ausar is a universal principle. On a Natual level, it is the cycle of life, death, and regeneration. Another way to think of this principle is the principle of natural order. Nature was ancient Africans first teacher.
Ausar as a principle is so complex that it doesn't fit neatly into a hierarchy of Neters.
We see one example of the Ausar principle represented in nature as vegetation that dies and is reborn anew each spring. Auset is mother nature or the container for the seed, Ausar is all that is natural and cyclical, Heru is what is born new or regenerated from the seed or potential within Ausar. Heru "reveals the face of his father." In other words, we can only know what is in the seed based on the fruit it produces.
Ausar, Auset, and Heru is also one of many trinities within African spiritual science. The Trinity was a framework in which to understand how nature worked at an abstract level. More on that another time. Just be aware that the Trinity was not something to be worshiped. It was a part of the African spiritual science.
The Ausar principle is present in us every day. Another natural example of the Ausar principle is how we humans operate at a cellular level. Often times when we bathe we wash off dead skin cells. In the place of the old cells are new ones "reborn." According to modern science, our bodies turn over, on a cellular level, every seven years from cells dying and new cells regenerating. In the midst of this complete death of our cells, our body regenerates completely every seven years we live! We are examples of the cycle of the Ausar principle. We are magnificent beings!
The Ausar principle is represented as a metaphor on other levels. For example, there are times in life when we can go through difficulties. Psychologically those difficulties can have a major effect on our state of mind.
However, when we come through the difficulty often times it forces us to gain a new perspective on life. This changes our state of mind and our actions.
In this instance, the new action is caused by the birth of a new perspective. With the change, the old perspective "died." Through the process of changing our perspective we had to be broken down mentally (decomposition) and the new perspective being born (Heru).
For the ancient Egyptians, everything in the universe was part of this cycle of birth, death, and regeneration. Because everything is energy in another form AND energy cannot be destroyed then nothing really dies (first law of thermodynamics). It only changes form. Therefore, life and death were only two sides of the same coin. One did not exist without the other. It is only a cycle of change.
It is a universal principle. Be it a thought, a physical body, a plant, or a star. They all go through this very common process.
This very common process became part of biblical scriptures through the mythology of ancient Egypt. How would you state the idea of two sides of the same coin back in ancient times?
How about, John 10:30, "I and the father are one."
Heru made this statement in the Book of coming forth by day (Book of the Dead to Egyptologist). This statement was recognizing an idea very common to Africans and their spiritual science. Heru is the principle of perpetual renewal or regeneration, not a god. He is the son/child in the Trinity. The child in all Ancient African trinities represented the ability of a phenomenon to perpetuate itself.
Within the ancient African cosmology noting dies and or goes into non-existence, only changes form. Therefore, the old form becomes the father of the new form from its death. "I and the father are one." They are two sides of the same coin.
The principle is truly universal. Don't get stuck thinking of the Ausar principle as a person or even a mythological individual. The myths of Egypt were simply a way to express these universal concepts in story form rather than mathematical formulas.
Even the origin of the word myth is from the Egyptian Muthoi which means wise saying. These sayings are expressing what we would call today mathematical formulas. They are expressing the interplay of numerology at that foundation of the Ancient Kemetic science.
This basic fact about the personages in the myths like Ausar, Auset, and Heru are completely missed by so many Kemetic teachers. The ancients were expressing pure mathematics. Unlike Greek myths based in entertainment because of their ignorance, Kemetic myth is based on mathematical formulas or as we say today, universal law.
people get lost in the mythological aspects of the principle and lose the perspective on it being a NTR or universal law of NaTuRe. This is so with all the "gods" of ancient Egypt. The myth is NOT the message. It expresses deeper concepts in a different way.
The early Egyptologist looked at the ancient Africans as primitive and unsophisticated in their philosophy and assumed they were worshiping nature.
This erroneous idea was not corrected until the 1950's when Egyptologist R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz corrected this error and realized they were a principle of nature (Mathematics). He connected what they myths were truly about.
Unfortunately, the erroneous interpretation has so much steam behind it people still believe the Egyptians were polytheistic.
The truth is they were quite sophisticated. The Ausar principle is a universal law, not a god. The mythological figure is a "Muthoi" or wise saying at its foundation.
These Mutoi are what became many of the personages in the bible. Based on his part in myth and cultural rituals, Ausar was known as, "the Krst" and "The Good Shepard" loooong before there was a bible. Heru was known as the "prince of peace." These nicknames are part of our biblical heritage as they were ascribed to Jesus.
Catholic priests as "Good Shepards?"
I touched on a few of many biblical connections that originated in African science. You now have facts that can be researched further and verified. Yes, Christianity can be fact-checked.
