In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,
“There is, in my opinion, an even more significant loss that requires consideration and serious examination. Research reveals that African people, since deep antiquity, structured their existence around a comprehensive set of Spiritual constructs that enabled them to unlock the secrets of the universe, live productive, purposeful lives and leave a legacy of excellence that is without equal in the world today. Egypt’s pyramids, among others, stand as a testament to this legacy.” — Nana Kwa Kra Kwamina
In any given moment, a person is given one choice: to do right or not to do right. Each of us, as Africans, can assess rightness by listening to our Ancestors. However, in a non-African environment, listening to our Ancestors is rarely mastered. Even so rightness or virtue itself can be mastered. This is my accomplishment, as a Sba (Philosopher) of the African Blood Siblings, an explanation of “The Law of Morality.” In the Ancient World, we were heralded as the “Blameless,” the most Just of Humankind, the favorite of the Gods! It’s this innocence, in the eyes of our Ancestors, our Siblings and our Unborn, which made and can make Africans the Superior Race on Earth.
The Parable of Sa-Asar preaches the virtues of virtue. It’s not unlike the Jesus narrative. In this Parable, Sa-Asar is the son of Asar, the son of God, borne from a human mother, who performs miracles, delivers sage advice and has insight in the afterlife and the fate of the righteous and unrighteous. The insight is more extensive however, dividing people into five categories rather than the Christian two. For instance, in Christianity, as popularly understood, Heaven is reserved for those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, righteousness notwithstanding. In the Parable of Sa-Asar, those who labour fruitlessly in life, labour fruitlessly for eternity; those who make no use of life before them, reach in vain for an eternity; those whose misdeeds outweigh their good deeds, suffer for an eternity; those whose misdeeds balance their good deeds, are made into servants for an eternity; and those whose good deeds outweigh their misdeeds become our Ancestors.
Reflecting on myself and the African Blood Siblings eternity as Ancestors is ahead of us. We labour on your behalf, we reach out to our opportunities, and our virtue is unparalleled. We need more membership and assistance in defraying our costs. Please consider this Parable and Remember that Innocence or Blamelessness is not only avoiding misdeeds but doing good deeds.
The Parable of Sa-Asar
As in “The Mystic Chapters of the Rau nu Prt M Hru” pages 306-307
By Muata Ashby
Sa-Asar was a Sage who incarnated to give spiritual teachings. One parable relates that:
A man and a woman wanted to have a child, but could not conceive so the woman, named Mehusekhe, went to a temple to sleep there in the hope that a god or goddess would come to her and tell her what to do. A spirit came to her in a dream and told her to go to the place where her husband was, and to eat from a melon vine and embrace her husband in love and that she would then conceive a child. She became pregnant and her husband, Setna, was very happy. In a dream, the spirit came to Setna and told him the child would be a boy and he is to be named “Sa-Asar,” and that he will do great wonders in the land of Egypt. When the child was born Setna named him Sa-Asar and he grew up and was always mature for his years. When Sa-Asar was a boy of 10, but already respected as an enligtened Sage, one day he and his father, were looking at two funerals. One funeral was for a rich man, who had many mourners, attendants, and offerings to the gods and goddesses. The other funeral was for a poor man, who had no one to mourn him and no offerings to the gods and goddesses to be placed in his tomb. The father exclaimed, “When my time comes, may my funeral be like the one for the rich man.” Sa-Asar looked at his father, and said “Oh no father I hope you die like the poor man.” Setna looked at Sa-Asar with surprise. Then Sa-Asar asked “Would you like me to show you the fate of these two souls?” Sa-Asar led his father to the Netherworld and his father saw that the rich man was judged by the gods and goddesses and was found to be unrighteous, having committed more evil deeds, than virtuous deeds so his fate was to suffer. The poor man had led a virtuous life so all of the offerings of the rich man were accrued to the poor man, and the poor man was led into the presence of Asar, the Supreme Self, who was seated on his throne, with the goddesses Aset and Nebethet behind him and the gods and goddesses at his sides. Setna saw the evil rich man suffering. Others were reaching up to grasp at food that was dangling over them by a rope while under them, certain gods and goddesses were digging a pit so that they could not reach high enough. Still others were twining ropes while at the other end of the rope there were donkeys eating the rope. “Tell me Sa-Asar,” Setna asked in amazement, “What is the meaning of these things I see? What happens to the people as they are judged?” Sa-Asar answered, “Those who are twining are the people who on earth labor everyday but their labors are fruitless for themselves because they do not perform the right actions, but the fruits of their actions benefit others. Those who are reaching up to get their food in vain are those who in life on earth have their life before them, but do not make use of it. Those who are found to have more misdeeds than good deeds are made to suffer. Those who have an equal amount of misdeeds and good deeds are sent to be servants of Seker-Asar. Those who are found to have more virtuous deeds than misdeeds are allowed to be among the gods and goddesses as one of them, and their ba flies up to be among the glorified spirits.”
At the end of the parable Sa-Asar explains his true identity. The name “Sa-Asar” means son of Asar (Osiris). Therefore, this teaching comes from Heru. He explains that he received permission from Asar to incarnate by placing his spirit in the vine and then becoming the soul in the womb of Mehusekhe. Thus, Sa-Asar is an “Avatar,” the sun of God incarnate, who came down to the world to provide wisdom and enlightenment.
