Recitations from Our Sacred Scriptures

 Introduction to Series One

In this first series of Anu Universe-City Recitations, we present selected verses from Nine Sacred Texts that illuminate Our Spiritual Horizon. These are texts that could well have the power to lead us back to having a more holistic relationship with ourselves, with our environment, and with the aim and purpose of our creator.

During this inaugural journey to enlightenment, we elect to begin at the beginning; or, at least as close to the beginning as our spiritual body of knowledge takes us. And so we choose our first verses of recitation to come from the oldest written spiritual scriptures we have today. It, or rather they, represent the many verses of insightful and enduring pearls of wisdom that were written on the walls of temples and pyramids, on tombs and coffins, and on papyrus scrolls in the Nile Valley. The arrogant Europeans who 'discovered' them in the 18th century called them "The Egyptian Book of the Dead" However, the honorable people who wrote and lived this wisdom called their writings, Metu (Mdu) Neter (Ntr), which translates to mean - The Writings of God.

From this survey of the wisdom of the ancients, we might better understand the madness we are surrounded by in this modern world; and, through their insights, maybe we might find a way out of this distorted reality. Some believe, and it is quite possible, these wise teachings act as a portal that leads to a spiritual zone of safety, a place where each of us can find a sactuary of peace and tranquility, for momemts, if not minutes or hours each day.

But before we begin, it is important to make clear that those early European scholars, through their words and presumptions, did effectively taint most of our opinions about ancient peoples and their beliefs. For example, after giving us their cultural spin, these same political, religious and intellectual leaders did purposefully infused into the Christian doctrine and articles of faith the notion that the early so-called Egyptians were polytheists. It is a label for those people that has stuck, even in spite of the fact that some of their most noted scholars -- men like E.A. Wallis Budge, Gerald Massey and others -- subsequently recanted, stating categorically that the people of Kemet (or Egypt) were unquestionably MONOTHEISTIC!!! That they believed in ONE SUPREME GOD. 

Yet, by that time the psychological damage had been done. This in fact is the origin of how we today have come to the unquestioned belief that our early fore-parents, the so-called Egyptians, were heathens or idolitors, rather than wise, sagacious, spiritual being. And, it is also why most of us didn't want to "look back", or even search for any wisdom our fore-parents might have passed along for our benefit.

Well, from my readings of just some of their writings it is clear that the ancients were a loving, caring people who knew the 'time and the season,' and wanted to leave for enduring generations, wisdom that might help us, in this day, raise ourselves up after living in darkness and mental death for a very long time. Again, they had insights into 'the time and the seasons' of man's sojourn, and the horrors we would have to endure. 

During this series of recitations of our sacred scriptures, we plan to read what we feel are most important insights related to the hu+man resurrection process. Furthermore, to put things into a rational context, we end each session with a brief commentary, where we give further explanation and meaning to the verses read. In these sessions we not only show our appreciation for our parent's recorded spiritual revelations, we also establish continuity of wisdom from the earliest scriptures found, to those that found their way into later spiritual texts all around the planet. And, because of its vital contribution to these later sacred texts, we begin by introducing the first spiritual literature we have; literature from a melanic Afrikan people who called themselves - Kmtu, which itself translates to mean - Black people.

As a result of their combined insights, over the coming weeks and months, each of us will soon be better able to appreciate the philosophical principles and core myths that underlies what wider swatch of people believe and subsequently hold as 'absolute truth.'

Upcoming Recitation Series

The second series in this on-going journey towards tomorrow begins September '07. At that point, we continue our survey of some of the most sacred books of hu+manity. More importantly, like in the first series, we seek to understand these sacred works in a modern and socially relevant light.

Realize that this ancient and profound knowledge is crucial to our fundamental understanding. Moreover, it could help us begin to answer the three most profound questions of existence including: Who are we? What is our purpose on this plane of existence? And, what should we be doing to make that purpose realizable?

Finally, if registration levels warrant, we plan in the second or future series to present these readings daily, or at least several times a week. As you might expect, there is a trememdous amount of information to cover, and even reading from them every day would require several years to cover the principle scriptures, and there undoubtedly would be more...

You are lovingly invited to join us for the continuation of this insightful voyage into a tomorrow that empowers us all.


Hetepu (peace be with you),
Your Brother in Truth,


Im' Nur
