A great overview of Khemitian Philosophies and the legacy of Akhenaton
on 11 October 2010
In common with Stephen Mehler, I also studied under the direct tutelage of Hakim Awayan - an eccentric but totally endearing indigenous oral tradition wisdom keeper who lived by the Sphinx - for several years until he sadly passed away in 2008. I'm really pleased that Stephen has been published as he has proved an invaluable source of corroboration for my notes from conversations with Hakim, which initially inspired me to develop my Egyptian Alchemy healing system (Reyad Sekh Em). Hakim explained to me that the ancient Egyptians called their land Khemit (pronounced Khempt but spelled in various ways due to the non-use of vowels in heiroglyhics)and referred to themselves as Khemitians or Soufs (with existing Sufis being connected to this lineage). Hence the very word 'Philosophy', widely attributed to the Greeks, is in itself proof that the Greeks themselves were attributing their 'knowledge' to the Egyptians as 'Philo-souf' meant exactly that. Indeed the Greek word for wisdom is derived from this same source word. Fascinating stuff, and for me Stephen helped to confirm some of my interpretations of Hakim's teachings as well as adding his own researched and intuited extrapolations. Stephen's earlier book - the Land of Osiris - was recommended to me by Hakim even though he wasn't a fan of the written word, being an oral traditionalist! Well done Stephen, I can't wait for your next book and I look forward to adding my own book(s) into the melting pot.
I'd also recommend interested parties to read some of the books by Moustafa Gadalla who helped me to understand the bigger picture and UK readers should be sure to obtain Lorraine Evans's book 'The Kingdom of the Ark' as she details and defends her hypothesis that one of Akhenaton's daughters actually made it to Britain, with her husband and entourage, in circa 1450 BC and may have founded the Scottish and/or Irish dynasties. Again much of the material Hakim discussed with me would substantiate this amazing claim ...
