“If you would ask me what to study, I would say, yourselves; and when you well have studied them; and then would ask me what to study next, I would reply, yourselves. He who knows well his lower self, knows the illusions of the world, knows of the things that pass away; and he who knows his higher self, know Allah; knows well the things that cannot pass away. Thrice blessed is the man who has made purity and love his very own; he has been ransomed from the perils of the lower self and is himself his higher self.” – Moorish Holy Koran 3:14-16
Islam is the vehicle by which Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice is administered to humanity for the purpose of eradicating negativity, low thought vibrations and everything that harms. This divine system of progress oriented principles encourages order, righteousness and balance by which all standards are to be measured. In the Egyptian system of mystic philosophy, this system is symbolically identified by Maat and Tehuti. Within the Egyptian initiation system, spiritualized education, the principle of Maat represents truth and righteousness while Tehuti represents right reasoning and is demonstrated by the rationality that is based on truth which is extracted from the knowledge of the inner self.
In the ancient Egyptian text, the Pert Em Heru, evidence of the pure science of Islam is termed the “purification of the Heart.” Further investigation of the Egyptian system and the Science of Islam reveals similarities regarding the Egyptian angelic recorders, Shai and Rennenet, and the karmic director Meskhenet and the two Quranic angelic recorders and the sentinel which are known together as the honorable recorders or the Kiraman Katibin (Surah 50:17-18).
The science of Islam and the philosophy of Maat are one and the same when viewed as a profound teaching which encompasses the entire fabric of creation as well as a highly effective system of spiritual discipline that provide the criteria for divine governance of the human kingdom. Islam, when understood as the Universal system of right thought and right action, is the orderly flow of energy which maintains the balance of the Universe. Also, Islam is the regularity which governs the planetary networks and solar systems as well as the cycles of nature and the cellular functions in the Asiatic creations of this plane of being.
Moorish Science, the primordial essence of Islam, is the natural process that maintains the flow of creation wherein there is a constant movement and balancing of the universal principles of governance. In understanding the purest form of Moorish Science and Islam, the adept must look beyond the mundane levels of ritual worship and the religious zealot’s reactionary behavior regarding God and man’s judgmental and distorted interpretation of what is divine and just.
If one were to maintain the ideals of mundane thinking and understanding, in the course of everyday life, those unwilling to look beyond the illusions of life will continue to view nature and the Universe as a chaotic conglomeration of forces that are (supposedly) unpredictable and random in nature. However, through a deep reflection on the universal principles of Moorish Science (Islam), the study, reflection and discernment of the greater realms will warrant spiritual maturity that will allow the adept to realize that there is indeed an order to the divine plan of Allah in unfoldment despite its chaotic appearance. This implies that there is a deeper understanding of the Cosmic order and with practice of the living harmony in Islam, the old time religion, with the greater order of the Microcosm, the adept will be lead to a far greater level of mental and spiritual peace (Salaam), balance and harmony. It is this peace and this balance that allows the ocean of the mind to become a clear mirror in which spirit-man is able to realize his/her oneness (ahadiyya) with Allah.
Moorish Science teaches that Islam is the personification of balance, righteousness, love, truth, peace, freedom and justice upon which Allah created the Universe. It is also understood that Islam is the essence of Allah and Allah is every thing and every unknown thing. Like the deeper aspects of Sufism regarding the essence of the heart, Maat of the Egyptian mystic education system is the judge of the heart and determines the actions of the heart to see whether the Asiatic creation has lived in accordance with Maat (Islam): love, truth, peace, freedom, justice, uprightness and in harmony with the natural creations of Allah. With an intense study, reflection and demonstration of Islam (Maat), the adept learns a way out of the illusions of sorrow, fear and pain and is lead to the path of self discovery and the source of supreme peace. However, if one chooses to act upon their own will instead of submitting to the will of Allah, then they subject themselves to be in contradiction with Islam (Maat). This level of contradiction indicates that the Asiatic creation has created contradiction within themselves, thus creating the breeding ground for negativity and self defeating impressions that lodge themselves in heart. The harboring of negative impressions in the heart creates agitation within the emotional, mental, astral and physical bodies of man which create states of hell for the Asiatic creation.
- ” Allah never made a heaven for man; He never made a hell; we are creators and we make our own. Now cease to seek for heaven in the sky; just open up the windows of the hearts, and, like a flood of light, a heaven will come and bring a boundless joy; then toil will be no cruel task.” – Moorish Holy Koran 12:9-10
However, living life according the divine principles allows the adept of Islam to retain the presence of mind during the transition of the illusion of death which will allow the spiritualized adept to not fall into the lower states of delusion and ignorance.
The spiritual education system of Moorish Science, the old time religion (Islam), initially may appear like some foreign religion, but as stated in the Holy Quran, it is the primordial spiritual system of upright since the inception of the physical plane.
- The Holy Koran Surah 30:30 “So turn your face and purpose toward the primordial religion of the upright (hanif) – the original nature in which the one creaeted all humanity. Let there be no change in this ancient, self-sustaining religion, created by the Only Being, which is the standard (qayyim) of all religions. But most among human do not understand.” – translation by Neil Douglas-Klotz author of “The Hidden Gospel”
This is the ancient system utilized by the great master Enoch (Idris) who achieved the height of wisdom and understanding in flesh: Ascension. Acting in accordance with the principles of Islam, the adept will be prepared to transcend the egoistic illusions of the brain and thereby free him/her self from the mental bondage that ties one to the illusory urges in the lower realms of time and space. In understanding the pure principles of Islam (Maat), one begins to learn how Islam works as the underlying order and truth behind the appearance of chaos and disorder in the phenomenal world. In doing this, the adept attunes his/her mind to the greater aspects of the divine mind of the inner most Self which exists at the transcendental levels being.
Through the active practice of Moorish Science, Islam – the primordial system of spiritual evolution, studying the teachings, reflecting upon the teachings and meditating upon the teachings, it is possible to consciously discover the transcendental state that is beyond the mundane states of consciousness. When there is enlightenment in the inner most regions of the heart, the higher states of conscious evolution overpowers all of the lower states and quickens the resurrection of the soul-self into the greater awareness of the infinite spirit of Allah. This unveiling of the mysteries leads to the mastery and understanding of Egyptian allegory of Heru (Higher self) and Set (Lower self) sharing one body with two heads, one of Heru and the other of Set. The union of Heru and Set is most important as it symbolizes the uniting and balancing of the Higher and Lower self within the Asiatic creation. This indicates that the adept has achieved inner harmony and peace with him/her self and the Universe. This is the act of Islam in Man. The utlimate and absolute is discovered to be the true and pure identity, and the physical consciousness is dissolved in the great and infinite ocean of Allah.
