Kemetic Yoga of Devotion
Kemetic Yoga of Devotion is the practice of letting go of the ego or the surrender of the self. Only after the Initiate was free of egotistical binds called ‘fetters’ could she live a life of dedication to the higher principles of universal order.
Ego is a condition of the lower self defined by separation from others, and as a result the need to protect itself from others. In the shadow of the ego, there’s a sense of entitlement, specialness, selfishness and reputation that need to be defended at all costs.
This egotistical drive creates conflict with the outside world and separation between the lower and higher self.
For example, have you ever felt like you were in conflict with yourself? Have you ever engaged in self-destructive behavior? Have you ever done something that you knew was in your best interest but did it anyway? These behaviors are rooted in the ego.
Thus, before the Initiate can escape the prison of the fourth dimension, he or she must devote themselves to the surrender of the self. Only then can the Initiate escape the illusion of limitations and separation imposed by the ego.
