In the Egyptian Cosmology, Maåt, (a beautiful winged woman who balances the deceased's heart against a feather after the journey in the Duat) "does not judge: she is consciousness itself and also the individual consciousness that each person carries in her heart - for she is both the motivating force and the goal of life. She is invoked on all occasions; she is omnipresent. Maåt moves and directs existence and Maåt is its ultimate treasure."
"Maåt is Cosmic consciousness, the ultimate goal of creation and of every creature, the immortal fruit of a constant acquisition. Maåt is the greatest treasure that a being might wish for." from Egyptian Mysteries, by Lucy Lamy. (Thames on Hudson Press)
RUBY-THROATED SPIRIT is a sister temple to the Ministry's PER ANKH (House of Life) location in Kingston, NY.
