How well do you know The Ma'at
The principles of ma’at were a value of the egyptian culture. It was expected that pharaohs and their families embody these principles, along with every person who was part of the community. They were not only to be studied, but life was to be lived in such a way that these principles guided all actions and relationships. One who did not live and/or rule and lead by these principles was considered unfit for the position, at least during the times of Egypt’s greatest spiritual heights. Obviously, this meant that teachings about how to live in order to find union with the cosmos/universe, was part of the life training of the people from infancy onward. The purpose of this union was both for the good and benefit of the individual, but even more so for the society and the world. The idea was for each person to live a life in which the principles were embodied externally as well as internally. There was special training for the leadership and for priests, in what we have come to call the “mystery schools.” but the basic principles were available to all. People came from other countries and cultures to study these and other teachings of Khemet, including Greeks, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, who took their learnings back to their own people and reinterpreted them. This was apparently a common practice between 640-322 b.c. (stolen legacy)
