African Spiritual Science: The Ausar principle simplified

Ausar principle
Ausar is a really simple principle or universal law

Ausar is a universal principle. On a Natual level, it is the cycle of life, death, and regeneration. Nature was ancient Africans first teacher.

We see one example of the Ausar principle represented in nature as vegetation that dies and is reborn anew each spring. Auset is mother nature, Ausar is death and decomposition, Heru is what is born new or regenerated from Ausar. Ausar, Auset, and Heru is also one of many trinities within African spiritual science. The Trinity was a framework in which to understand how nature worked at an abstract level. More on that another time. Just be aware that the Trinity was not something to be worshiped. It was a part of the African spiritual science.

What is the Ausar Principle?

The Ausar principle is present in us every day. Another natural example of the Ausar principle is how we humans operate at a cellular level. Often times when we bathe we wash off dead skin cells. In the place of the old cells are new ones “reborn.” According to modern science, our bodies turn over, on a cellular level, every seven years from cells dying and new cells regenerating. In the midst of this complete death of our cells, our body regenerates completely every seven years we live! We are examples of the cycle of the Ausar principle. We are magnificent beings!

The Ausar principle is represented as a metaphor on other levels. For example, there are times is life when we can go through difficulties. Psychologically those difficulties can have a major effect on our state of mind.

However, when we come through the difficulty often times it forces us to gain a new perspective on life. This changes our state of mind and our actions.

In this instance, the new action is caused by the birth of a new perspective. With the change, the old perspective “died.” Through the process of changing our perspective we had to be broken down mentally (decomposition) and the new perspective being born (Heru).

For the ancient Egyptians, everything in the universe was part of this cycle of birth, death, and regeneration. Because everything is energy in another form AND energy cannot be destroyed then nothing really dies (first law of thermodynamics). It only changes form. Therefore, life and death were only two sides of the same coin. One did not exist without the other. It is only a cycle of change.

It is a universal principle. Be it a thought, a physical body, a plant, or a star. They all go through this very common process.

The Ausar Principle in the Bible

This very common process became part of biblical scriptures through the mythology of ancient Egypt. How would you state the idea of two sides of the same coin back in ancient times?

How about, John 10:30, “I and the father are one.”

Heru made this statement in the Book of coming forth by day (Book of the Dead to Egyptologist). This statement was recognizing an idea very common to Africans and their spiritual science. Heru is the principle of perpetual renewal or regeneration, not a god. He is the son/child in the Trinity. The child in all Ancient African trinities represented the ability of a phenomenon to perpetuate itself.

Within the ancient African cosmology noting dies and or goes into non-existence, only changes form. Therefore, the old form becomes the father of the new form from its death. “I and the father are one.” They are two sides of the same coin.

The principle is truly universal. Don’t get stuck thinking of the Ausar principle as a person or even a mythological individual. It is a principle or universal law.

people get lost in the mythological explanation of the principle and lose the perspective on it being a NTR or universal law of NaTuRe. This is so with all the “gods” of ancient Egypt. The myth is NOT the message.

The early Egyptologist looked at the ancient Africans as primitive and unsophisticated in their philosophy and assumed they were worshiping nature.

This erroneous idea was not corrected until the 1950’s when Egyptologist R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz corrected this error and realized they were a principle of nature.

Unfortunately, the erroneous interpretation has so much steam behind it people still believe the Egyptians were polytheistic.

The truth is they were quite sophisticated. The Ausar principle is a universal law, not a god.

  1. Thanks for making this principle simple to understand and grasp. You caught my attention when you said Don’t get stuck thinking of Ausar as a person or even a mythological individual. It is a principle or universal law. That summed it up for me right there!!

    1. Hey Kendall, one of the biggest issues to really understanding the Kemetic spiritual system is the personification of the Neters. The myths and stories are used to convey deeper universal truths.
