The Set Course of the Stars

moon2Those who choose to change the path of men so as to make them walk in the way of darkness, shall perish in the same darkness. We will not permit any from among the sons of men to change the course that has been set for others by the Living Spirit.

If a man or a woman wishes to abide by the tenets of another covenant, already sanctioned by Aten, and already permitted by those appointed by the Divine One, then that man or woman should never be hindered from making that decision. None shall chastise another for doing that which he or she is being called to do by the urging of the Divine Mother.

Respect for the Religion of Light

sun-handThe Religion of Light is never treated as some cheap trinket which one would pick up in a novelty shop. It is not a game to be played like children in school. It is not something one puts away in a closet at the end of the day like a coat or a pair of shoes.

The Religion of Light and all that it entails is to be respected and honoured in one’s speech, in one’s actions and in one’s day to day living. Practising the Religion of Light and living the Religion is one and the same. The two can not be separated. The Religion of Light is lived every minute, every hour, every day throughout one’s entire lifetime. Those who claim to be devotees of Aten, yet at the same time show disrespect toward the Religion through their speech or actions, by mixing forms of falsehood with revelations of Truth, have no place in the halls of the Holy Temple.

Practising Compassion and Tolerance With All Peoples

One of the central teachings of the Temple of Aten is “Do No Harm.” One can not practice compassion without tolerance. This is a quality practised by the the devotees of Aten and Akhenaten. In the words of their mouth and in the movement of their hands, devotees have compassion and loving-kindness towards all peoples, all nations and tongues, and all those who practice foreign religions and to all those who hold to ideals not similar to Atenism.

The compassion and tolerance of devotees of the Religion of Light, does not cause them to set aside caution concerning the adoption of various teachings or ideals which are false. Being children of the Light, they are aware of the dangers of speaking and acting out of the truth that has been revealed to them by Aten through Akhenaten and other servants. The worshippers of the One God are well aware of how one can become spiritually unclean by touching that which is false. They know that the Divine Barque will pass them by if they have become unclean due to accepting false teachings.

A Bounty of Food Awaits the One Who Truly Seeks It

pomegranate-fruit-grapesThere is never enough time in the day, nay in the entire lifetime of a man, to read and study the writings of the sons of men so as to gain perfect knowledge. Truly, it is a hobby for some to read, and yet for some men it is to gain a perspective of others on any given subject. None should be chastised for such; unfortunately, however, it is a crutch for many other men and women. These latter ones will never gain the truth, and they will never gain the divine state if they do not abandon that which is false. It is because the latter choose to base their faith on the theories of the sons of men rather than upon the golden gems of truths flowing forth like blessed milk and honey from the hand of the Lord above the Horizon.
