All that strikes us as being "beautiful" - harmoniously juxtaposed forms - in the world is the work of the deity Het Heru. In human life this natural intelligence manifests itself as an artistic expression, social grace, charm, artistic as well as scientific invention, pleasure seeking, etc.

Het Heru has its seat in the gonads. Its Kamitic name is an indication of this fact. Het Heru literally means "house" (het) of Heru. Heru corresponds to those "solar" metabolic phase factors responsible for the virilization and masculinization of the adult male of the species. I.e., the metaphysical forces behind the production of androgen. In the Yoruba traditions, Heru is Shango, the patron of kings, who wears pants with exaggerated crotches to show that he "out-mans" all other men. With Het Heru, the emphasis is not on the hot gonadal expression of Heru, but on the cool, peaceful, joyous, refined charming, sexual arousal and seductive behavior that stimulates the production of estrogen and the female reproductive system.

Concealed from the knowledge of the majority of people is the fact that the sexual arousal is an expression of the arousal of the life force - Ra. In fact, during the earliest times in Kamitic history, Het Heru was considered the principal female counterpart of the "deity" Ra, and therefore the mother of the deities. Her dominion over the imagination is the rational for this association. The sensations of joy, pleasure (or negative feelings) are expressions of the arousal of the life force, and the images that form the content of the visualization or daydreams (dhyana) are the spiritual moulds (bodies of the deities, and energized thought forms - the "elementals" of European occultism) that guide the physical forces to the realization of their goals.

In her role as the imaginative faculty she is Nebt-Het, the Lordess of the House. This house, of course, is the spirit. This can be easily understood from the fact that all spiritual must be carried out through the concentration on images in a state of trance. Images + aroused life-force (Ra) + trance (mediumistic or waking) = spiritual realization (mundane or spiritual). Whoever remembers this formula, observes Maat, follows Tehuti, identifies with Ausar will achieve all his needs in heaven and on earth. 

In her role as the imagination she is also the "Eye (utchat) of Heru". That is, the eye of the will, or simply, our ability to visualize what we want to achieve. When the Kamitic texts say that the deities whose bodies are composed of light nourish themselves on the celestial light supplied to them by the Eye of Heru, they are referring to the subtle luminous matter out of which our images are formed.

The Deity Het-Heru


Het-Heru, Het-Hert, or Hathor is an ancient goddess of Egypt who was worshiped as a cow-deity. Here is an explanation of the deity Het-Heru from the Isis Moon website.

"The name "Hathor" is the Greek corruption of the variants Het-Hert ("the House Above") and Het-Heru ("the House of Horus"). Both terms refer to her as a sky goddess. The priests of Heliopolis often referred to her as Ra's consort, the mother of Shu and Tefnut. Like Isis, Hathor was considered by many to be the goddess "par excellence" and held the attributes of most of the other goddesses at one time or another.

Like Isis and Mut, Hathor was a manifestation of the "Great Mother" archetype; a sort of cosmic Yin. She had so very many manifestations that eventually seven important ones were selected and widely worshiped as the "Seven Hathors": Hathor of Thebes, Heliopolis, Aphroditopolis, Sinai, Momemphis, Herakleopolis, and Keset.

The Greeks identified her with Aphrodite, and this is not too far off, as she represented, in the texts, everything true, good, and beautiful in all forms of woman; mother, wife, sister, and daughter; also the patron of artists of every kind, and of joyful things, festivals, and happiness.

The star Sirius (called by the Egyptians Sepdet) was sacred to her. The Goddess Hathor is the Mistress of Love and Beauty. She is the Goddess of Gold, and turquoise is sacred to her. She inspires love in people's hearts, and is the patron of women's beauty rituals. From her arises the fertility and fecundity of the Earth and Life itself.

She is generally said to be the daughter of Ra, and is easily his equal in power. Her myths and aspects have been conflated with other Goddesses over time: As the Divine Cow, she takes Nuit's place as the sky Goddess, and gives birth to Ra each morning. As Sekhmet, she represents the fiery burning rays of the Sun that can cause the crops to grow as well as the deserts to spread.

As Het-heru (her Egyptian name), she is allied with Horus in his form as Ra-Harakty. ("Het-heru" literally means "house of Horus", another name for the sky.) She and Isis are often given similar forms and functions, and can frequently be mistaken for or substituted for each other. As Uatchet, she becomes the spitting cobra that sends out the fiery solar rays to destroy evildoers. Again as the Divine Cow, she is considered the Mother of all the pharaohs.

In ancient Egypt, Hathor was the principal Goddess of several Nome cities. Her best known shrine was at Denderah (Ta-en-tarert), where a late Kingdom representation of the Zodiacal constellations has been found. She also had major shrines at Diospolis Parva (Het), Aphroditopolis of Uatchet (Tchebut), Cusae (Qesi), and Aphroditopolis of Mayten (Tchep-ahet) in Upper Egypt, and at Apis (Nut-ent-Hap) in Lower Egypt.

Originally the mother of Heru (in later times Aset [Isis] and Asar [Osiris] become the parents of Heru and Het Heret becomes combined with Aset [Isis]). In later times after Aset becomes the mother of Heru, Het Heret becomes the consort of Heru. Het Heret is shown as a cow arching over the sky or as a naked woman arching over the sky.

"Het Heru helps towards your fulfillment of being God on earth. She is an energy that deals with inner peace, harmony and joy.
