TEHUTI

 

TREE OF LIFE MEDITATION SYSTEM (TOLM), Pg. 119

 

Avoiding and resolving conflicts is one of the chief functions of Tehuti, the faculty of wisdom. It is the total antithesis of the intellect. While the latter derives its information from Man's worldly experiences, the wisdom faculty gets its knowledge from God dwelling in Man's spirit. In other words, for wisdom to manifest itself, we must shut down our intellectual and imaginative thought processes, in order to receive the intuition from God, dwelling within. In this state where there are no thoughts, consciousness enters into the same state of Hetep (Nirvana) as described by the ogdoad. There are, therefore, no thoughts as in the syllogistic logical process that we can follow. All that can be given are instructions leading to the shutting down of the thought processes making the mind blank, Satori which is the requirement for the functioning of the wisdom faculty. Since this faculty is not really of Man, but belongs to God dwelling in one's spirit, the procedure can be explained as the stilling of the thought processes of the intellect and the imagination, in order to receive instructions from God. It is of interest to note that the 'Hu' in Tehuti is the mantra (word of power) of the wisdom goddess Chinnamasta of Black India (Indus Kush), and of the Guru (wisdom) chakra. It operates by suppressing the formation of thought processes by cutting the mind off from the senses. This ties in with Kamitic spiritual science. 'Hu' is metaphorized as Ptah's tongue which utters the word of power that initiates the process of creation. It is also the 'deity' of the senses, in which capacity it plays the same role as the mantra Hu(ng) of the Guru chakra. In other words, to shut the mind down, it must be cut off from its ports (the senses) to the outside world. This is of course, a brief account of the process. The most important point to understand is that ultimately, the most important part of the deity's name is 'Hu,' understood not as a word with meaning, but as the word of power which leads to the manifestation of wisdom in the initiate.
