The Lesson of Horus and Set

Those of you familiar with Egyptian mythology know that Horus defeated his uncle Set to claim the usurped throne of his father Osiris, and restore Order to the Cosmos, of which Egypt was a deliberate microcosm.

What is less well-remembered, though perhaps even more important, is the fact that it took him more than one try.

The gods themselves are capable of failure; why, then, should you be hard on yourself if you don’t fulfill your destiny in a single go?

This is the lesson of Horus, King of the Gods…and it is also the lesson of Set: for without obstacles to overcome, we would never even have a reason to seek, much less uncover, the divine grace which gives us the strength to overcome.

It is in overcoming tangible weight that our tangible portion, the body is built. It is in overcoming intangible resistance that our intangible portions, our mind and spirit, are built.

Even if it takes more than one try.

Divinity knows the difference between a retreat and a surrender.

Divinity is your birthright.

Your birthright must be fought for.

Even if it takes more than one try.

That is the Truth, and the Truth rides a motorcycle.

This is a sermon of the First and Seventh Ets.
