REKHIT HENA SPERET
Etymology and Cosmology of Religion and Spirit
Ancestral Religion IS Spirituality
Excerpt from the Introduction:
"...The notion that one is ‘spiritual but not religious’ or ‘into spirituality and not religion’ or that ‘religion is different from spirituality’ is totally inaccurate and born of ignorance of the etymological and cosmological roots and origins of the terms. The terms religion and spirit come directly from the Ancestral language of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) people as documented in ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt), our civilization founded over 40,000 years ago. Our cosmology born of our ritual practices as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) interfacing with the Deities and Ancestral Spirits gave birth to the words in our primordial Ancestral language. This includes the origins of the terms religion and spirit. These root terms continue to be spoken in our contemporary Afurakani/Afuraitkainit (African) dialects today wherever we exist in the world. This is the first publication to accurately elucidate the etymology and cosmology of religion and spirit.
Religion and Spirituality are identical. It is pseudo-religion which is incongruent with spirituality.
It was and is a political ploy initiated and perpetuated by the whites and their offspring to separate religion from spirituality and misdefine both terms. This ploy is designed, on one hand, to promote the pseudo-religions with their fictional characters who never existed in any form nor of any race inlcuding: christianity and jesus, islam and allah, judaism and yahweh, hinduism and brahmin, buddhism and buddha, etc. The doctrines of these pseudo-religions are designed to enslave the minds of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) and by extension support white socio-economic and political control. On the other hand, the whites and their offspring promote alternative pseudo-‘spiritualities’ to entrap those of our people who have broken away from the established pseudo-‘religions’. New-age ‘spirituality’, ‘native’-american ‘spirituality’, kabbalism, sufism, hermeticism, wicca, gnosticism, various forms of european ‘magic’, vedanta, taoism, eastern and oriental ‘spirituality’, extraterrestrialism, drug-addict ‘spirituality’ and more are variegated expressions of these pseudo-‘spiritualities’ which serve to enslave the minds of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) as well, simply packaged in different yet related rhetoric and symbolism. The result of embracing the pseudo-religions and pseudo-spiritualities for Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) people is the rejection of our identity, our Ancestral culture, our connection with the actual Deities/Divine Spirit-Forces in Creation and the Ancestral Spirits of our direct blood-circles and thus our capacitiy to align with Divine Order – inclusive of the Divine Mandate to exterminate our enemies..."
