This is mystory/mystery of how a queen so loved her king that she was able to save her kingdom from a shadow ruler and give the ultimate divine gift of love to the world. I’ve personally read the story many times from many different perspectives. But it wasn’t until I was recently passing the story down by word to a family member… that I realize my own wonderfully beautiful and imaginative Kemetic drama should be written.
So here is how I’m feel’n the story:
The ancient kingdom of Kemet is ruled by royal deity. Even today, Goddess Aset is the seated queen; her Son/Sun God Heru is king; while her husband King Asar is the master of our “unseen” world. And this trinity is eternally the primary guiding ancestors of all who accept Kemetic roots.
As is the 3rd generation of Amen-Ra, 4-deities were seeded in the stars and named Aset, Asar, Nebt-het, and Set. Goddess Aset was created to be a compassionate heart-thinking and universal queen-mother to all the people of Kemet. King Asar’s wise demeanor gives him perfect attributes to be a fair and just ruler. Goddess Nebt-het was given the role of mistress of home-making… her divine purpose to protecting families and guiding wives.
But brother Set was not accepting of his role as master and guardian of the beautiful fertile lands of Kemet that border all of the magnificent Nile river. The prominent position of managing the resources of nutritious fruits, vegetables, herbs; strong healthy livestock; precious elements on earth, (gold, diamonds, healing waters), was of very little interest to Set…and he would often cast his god-sized shadow over all of the land to make his feeling known.
Set believed then and now he should rightfully be king of Kemet; fully understanding the only way to get what he wants is to destroy its sitting ruler. You see, the kingdom of Kemet is a place made of great energy made possible by the magnetic bond of the divine feminine with the masculine presence. So Set’s first attempt to take the throne was to destroy the marriage of Queen Aset and King Asar.
One day, Set invited Goddess Aset to the vast and lavish palace situated on the banks of the beautiful waters of the Nile river of which he shared with his wife Goddess Nebt-het. His objective was to lead Queen Aset into private spaces to seduce her. Afterwards, Set bragged to the people of the kingdom of having an affair with the queen.
Initially King Asar was outraged at what Set had done with his wife; but was quickly assured by the Goddess Nebt-het the lie was an attempt by her husband Set to destroy the king’s marriage…breaking the bond of divine Kemetic energy, and therefore forcing the couple to leave the throne for the good of the kingdom.
When Set found out his wife had betrayed him with the truth, Set convinced himself the Goddess Nebt-het had cheated with King Asar. In retaliation to his wife, Set made an egotistical accusation to hurt Nebt-het that he believed their son Anu, (born to be master between our seen and unseen worlds), was fathered by King Asar.
Set cast a shadow over all of the kingdom that day… so dark King Asar could not see Set approaching to attack and kill him. Set buried the king’s body far from Kemetic civilization…hoping no one from the kingdom would ever find King Asur. He followed his murderous act by seizing the throne of Kemet.
But the Goddess Nebt-het worked alongside her Sis-star Aset to find Asar’s body. And the sisterhood of divine feminine energy called on the assistance of Anu to bring the king back from the unseen world before he passed through the final gate of judgment to the next life.
With King Asar back on the throne, he showed Set brotherly love and mercy in an act of wise example to the people of Kemet. But Set was extremely embarrassed and his ego burned with rage to be forced back to duties as master of the lands. So as soon as the god of shadows was given another opportunity, Set took advantage again to destroy King Asar. This time, Set dis-membered the body of King Asar into 14-pieces after killing him. As knowledgeable guardian of all the lands of Kemet, Set was empowered to quickly and easily spread the pieces over multiple far reaching places to make it near impossible for anyone to find the body.
But the Goddesses Aset and Nebt-het came together yet again using their divine feminine energy to successfully retrieve every body piece of King Asar except one. Set had thrown the phallus of King Asar into a part of the Nile frequented by the lowest energy of females…the catfish. Out of dramatic spite and jealousy, the catfish (as expected) swallowed the phallus and refused to assist the sisterhood; so that Queen Aset was never able to retrieve her husband’s last remaining body part.
But even with only 13 of the 14-pieces of King Asar’s dis-membered murdered body, the Goddess Aset was prepared to request assistance from Anu again to bring Asar back from the unseen world before passing through the final gate of judgment.
However, out of divine heart-felt compassion to protect Kemet from Set ever becoming king, the Goddess Aset consulted Tehuti, (the most learned alchemist and wise-man of majik), for an eternally lasting solution for the kingdom. Tehuti would assist in calling on the life-force energy of the ANKH to immaculately conceive a super-sun son from the bloodline of Queen Aset and King Asar. This super-sun would inherit the throne of Kemet and King Asar would complete his journey to ultimately rule our “unseen” world…judging as master to all who pass to the next life.
On a cold morning three days after the beginning of the winter solstice, the birth of a new super-sun was evident as the world witnessed His rise high in the eastern sky for everyone on earth to see. The Queen Aset crowned her son King of Kemet “Lord of the Sky” and the people called him Heru their hero.
The Sun-God revenged his father’s death but during battle, some of the beautiful homelands by the Nile were scorched…turning it into the Sahara desert. Set continues attempts to kill King Heru; but joined by the divine femiNine trinity of Queen Aset, Goddess Nebt-het and wife Goddess Het-heru, the super-sun’s Kemetic energy is more than what Set or any enemies would every be able to destroy.
So is mystory…in coming posts, I will interpret the mystery.
Ashe! And Hotep.
