Goddess Ma'at

At Ma’at we honor the goddesses that inspire us.

The goddess Ma’at represents truth, integrity, and balance.

– “Ma’at bound all things together in an indestructible unity:
the universe, the natural world, the state, and the individual
were all seen as parts of the wider order generated by
Ma’at!” crystal link

She maintained a vital role in the mortuary rituals of Egypt
where she weighed the hearts of the deceased. This mortuary
role evolved over the decades into the principle of ma’at, the
desired right attitude, which remained the ethical and moral
foundation of the Egyptian people. (152)

MA’AT IS CONSIDERED MORE OF A CONCEPT THAN A GODDESS. ONE WORSHIPED THE GODDESS MA’AT BY LIVING A LIFE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE HIGHEST PRINCIPLES OF JUSTICE, ORDER & HARMONY.

Ma’at was the model for human behavior, in conformity with the will of the gods, the universal order evident in the heavens, cosmic balance upon the earth, the mirror of celestial beauty.
Awareness of the cosmic order was evident early in Egypt; priest-astronomers charted the heavens and noted that the Egyptian myths of a golden age included a period when Ma’at was ruler of earth. She was sometimes said to have withdrawn to the heavens because she was grieved by the wicked behavior of humanity. Ma’at could still be thought of as living with an individual like his or her good angel and accompanying that person into the afterlife. Eventually “joining Ma’at” became a euphemism for dying. (160)

One worshiped the goddess Ma’at by living a life in accordance with the highest principles of justice, order, and harmony keeping in mind one’s neighbors and the earth one had been given to tend.
