Pharaoh Rameses II
A past life / Soul Connection of Keth's
Keth liked building Stuff, also see Sun King now he just likes taking pictures of it all.
Rameses II, the son of King Seti I, was considered to be one of the greatest Pharaohs who ever lived. Also he was the longest living pharaohs. His rule was roughly 67 years long. He had five or six main wives, including Neferati, and is said to have had more than 100 children. Ramese II is said to have been most likely Moses' nemesis in the book of Exodus (probably not). His life, which was over eighty years long ,makes him even more likely to have been the pharaoh in Exodus in Hebrew and Christian Bibles.
Ramses II was said to have to made the most temples including: The Ramesseum, Karnak, and Abu Simbel. Also his cartouche was engraved so deep into the structures and monuments that no successor could erase it.
His reign of power stretched from southward of Sudan, north to Turkey, west to Lybia, and east to Iraq. He put an end to problems between the Hittites and the Egyptians when he married a Hittite princess.
When he was buried, he was buried in the Valley of the Kings, but his body wasn't found in his tomb in 1881 with many other royal mummies in the Royal Cache Dsir el-Bahri. Recently a tomb containing possibly 50 of his sons was found. It had more than 108 rooms.
Ramesses II was also called Ramesses the Great and he lived for 96 years. It is believed that he had as many as fifty sons and fifty daughters, though only a few of them are known to us. His chief, and most likely favorite wife was Nefertari. In the seventh year of his father's (Seti I) reign, Ramesses II became co-ruler of Egypt. Ramesses II and his father began many restoration and building projects. These included the building of several temples and the restoration of other shrines and complexes throughout Egypt. He built a mortuary complex at Abydos in honor of Osiris and the famed Ramesseum. Having outlived many of his older sons, his 13th son ascended to the throne upon his death in 1298 B.C.E.
he Temple of Amun, located on the East Bank, was built by two Pharoahs: Amenhotep III (1390 - 1352 BC) and Rameses II (1279 - 1213 BC). The temple was dedicated to Amun, whose marriage to Mut was celebrated annually when the sacred procession moved by boat from Karnak to Luxor Temple. The primary function of the original temple was as a setting for the Festival of Opet, in which the cult statue of the god Amun was carried annually along an avenue of sphinxes leading from the temple of Amun at Karnak to Luxor.
Like Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple is an accretion of structures erected by succeeding kings. The principal entrance today is the Pylon of Ramesses II (c.1279-1213 B.C.E.), which is flanked by two seated statues of the king (one is behind the obelisk) and one standing statue (of an original four). The remaining obelisk of pink granite is situated in front of the easternmost seated statue. The western obelisk has stood in the Place de la Concorde in Paris since 1836. The vertical niches held flag staffs.
The pylon entranceway is suggestive of the Egyptian hieroglyph which means "horizon." In the hieroglyph, the circle of the sun is flanked by two stylized mountain shapes. Most Egyptian temples had an east-west axis so that the sun would symbolically rise and set between these pylon/mountains. Luxor Temple, however, along with Dendera has a north-south axis.
The temple of Luxor is mainly build by two kings, Amenophis III and Ramese II. Ameophis III founded the temple on the site of an older sanctuary and Ramese II added the impressive pylon with Obelisks, giant figures and a colonnaded court.
To determine the race representatives of the Egyptian gods will go far toward deciding the disputed questions as to who were the first inhabitants of Egypt and builders of the pyramids, catacombs, and sphinxes. Who were the people in so remote a period susceptible of such intellectual development as to capacitate them for such a work? As says the Duke of Argyll in his able dissertation on the original development of human faculties: "In any case we may safely assume that Man must have begun his course in some one or more of these portions of the earth, which are genial in climate, rich in natural fruits, capable of yielding the most abundant return to the very simplest act. It is under such conditions that the first establishment of the human race can easily be understood; nay, it is under such conditions only that it is conceivable at all, and as these are the conditions which would favor the first establishment, and most rapid increase of Man, so also are these the conditions under which knowledge would most rapidly accumulate, and the earliest possibilities of material civilization would arise."
And at last, and for once, we have the admission from a highly cultivated, able, eminent and popular author that such a climate as that of the country, upon which we are now treating, Africa as the land of our father, is favorable to rapid intellectual development and the advancement of progressive civilization.
And how true is this! It has long been known to the natural scientist that Africa, as a continent, excels all others in natural productions: animal, vegetable and mineral. That its fauna and flora are the most profuse and best developed of any quarter of the globe; indeed, so far from stupefying and depressing, as popularly taught in our schoolbooks, the climate and inhalations of the aroma and odors with which the atmosphere is impregnated, are exciting causes, favorable to intellectual development. No intellect is more active, nor perception more acute, than that of the native African. He is all life, all activity, all device; and, during his earliest period of propagation and progress of civilization, must have been fully equal to the requirements and demands of the times.
In addition to the mythological characters assigned the three great Kings (father and two sons) Rameses I (Ham as Jupiter Ammon); Rameses II (Mizraim as Sesotris); and Rameses III (Cush as Osiris); inseparably united as three great columns supporting an edifice as Rameses, Sesotris and Osiris: the ram, bull and dog, the auspicious conception in the ideal character of the last representation is peace, patience and friendship: the sheep for peace, ox for patience and dog for friendship.
Besides the characteristics of peace, the sheep supplies wool, horns, hide, flesh, and tallow, for food and commerce; the ox the same, besides his utility as a working animal, and the milk of cows; hence, the basis of wealth in these countries; and from his faithfulness and usefulness to man, the dog was justly entitled to a representation as one of the gods, under whose auspices the people placed themselves. Hence the account in classic history, informing us that "the Egyptians once elected a Dog for their King." We can well understand that this idea originated in an allegorical representation, in the dog of Cush as King of Egypt. What a magnificent conception in these Three One Gods of peace, patience and friendship. And this conception was born of Ethiopia, as we shall show. But this is just the point in dispute by most modern writers who pretend any acquaintance with the history of the ancient inhabitants of the valley of the Nile.
And even that masterly, popular writer whose work on natural science, the "Reign of Law," is so much admired as a most valuable contribution to sterling literature, we mean the Duke of Argyll, flounders and staggers at this point. Says his Grace the Duke: "There is a point at which the evidence of archaeology begins before the evidence of history closed. There is border land where both kinds of evidence are found together, or rather where some testimony of written documents or the inarticulate monuments of man. It was the habit of one of the most ancient nationals of the world to record all events in the form of pictorial representations. Their domestic habits, their foreign wars, their religious beliefs are thus all presented to the eye."
RAMESES II - by
I am Istnofret one of the Favourite Queens of Rameses II - I am favoured. Rameses II and I ruled, being the Queen of Love and Ramese II and I held the energy just as I did in Atlantis.
My first remembrance was a throne room. Rameses and I were holding court.
It was a very large room. There were many people there all attending the Pharaoh and his Queen.
I felt very regal and powerful. Not in the sense of abusive power but the power you feel when you are loved and respected.
The Pharaoh was giving punishment for someone who had stolen grain.
The Visor next to the pharaoh said 100 lashes and I whispered to Rameses that that was to harsh - he said 50 lashes.
I was known for my fairness and honesty and my compassion of all people.
They loved and respected both of us and it was known in the land of our strong love for one another.
The next time I remember is when we were in the bedroom and he was stroking my cheek saying; I love you and me saying and I love you - I respect you and... I respect You.
The total love and respect was equal with us.
It was a true love.
I kissed his hand and felt the love and warmth from him.
The next time was when I was dying, I had been poisoned and was lying in the bedroom, the visors and other people were there, Queen Nefrititi was there one of the other wives of Rameses.
She was behind the poisoning because she was jealous of our love.
Rameses was holding my hand and looking into my eyes, I sat up in bed and told them that although they had shortened my life on this plane of existence I would still be beside Rameses and I would make sure that he would have a very long reign, I would make sure that the power was not taken away from him and that I would still guide him with my compassion for the people.
That they could not win through power and greed because I would protect him from this.
I told them that my spirit would always protect Rameses as the love would be strong as ever between us.
That love does not die but lives on after death. You see the other Queen was jealous of the love that Rameses and I shared.
It was known thoughout the land and she wanted to have that right to be with him. And she was in the history books after Isnofret died.
Wearing a gold winged headress, black hair, white pleated dress with gold, Cleopatra's vision was to unite Egypt at all costs, to keep the energy - to keep the positive energy vibration.
To exude beauty and grace and to teach by example of beauty from within so people see the inner beauty, to shine in the dross of uncertainty, to uphold the throne of love and power through spirituality.
To facilitate between great men and bring love between them, to show them their error of their ego to meld with their power to unite and give joy to many.
The joy in their hearts regardless of their station in life.
These men were troubled by the power of the physical power, knowing that the power of love and mind far outweighed the power of the physical for many a strong man had been bought to their knees by the power of the worded uttered in joy and love when faced with the joy and love of themselves told to them by the priestess in the form of beauty, love, trust and wisdom.
He cannot deny himself the part of himself that is good, loving and kind.
In the love find happiness in himself and others for the power of the physical fades and passes with time but the power of the mind and heart lives on throughout time and space.
Beyond the physical body, it has no time, name or place for it is the ether, the energy of always and everything.
It lingers in the mountains, in the streams, in the fields, in the minds of men.
These are the thoughts of Cleopatra as she realised the burden of her life but also the greatness of her task in the betterment of a nation of the world to make it a better place for all her people, and they loved her for it.
She felt the power of all she could be but she drew on that power to help her, it was all she needed to be and say her piece to encourage the great leaders, these men to see the emptiness of their lower selves and what they had become.
She saw what men could become in the future and was sad.
She had the visions, she saw her part of the plan and knew that she had made a difference.
