There was a group of men gathered around a pile of very heavy rocks which they had great difficulty lifting alone. Then one said, "by the faith of Jesus Christ!!" And amazingly, he lifted the rock onto a strong foundation.'
The next man, a bodybuilder, trusted in his weight training and health shakes and he lifted another rock.
The next man thought about his faith in Allah and how Muhammad lifted a rock into a cornerstone of the Ka'ba and with that thought he heaved another stone into position. Then next man summoned the strength of Shango and moved another block. This went on among the group until they stepped back and realized they had built a pyramid. 

Then they built a flour mill, then a hospital, then a bank to help their people prosper, then a school- where they taught their children the science of cooperation, understanding, patience, respect and how to draw on their true power; their inner strength.

A Note on the Path

Ma’at is the pathway to realign one's spirit with the creator - the individual Ba (Soul) with the universal Ba.

"Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth."Say not, "I have found the path of the soul (the essence)." Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path." For the soul walks upon all paths
The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.The soul unfolds itself like a lotus of countless petals."
 ~Khalil Gibran

You will free yourself when you learn to be neutral and follow the instructions of your heart without letting things disturb you. This is the way of Maat.*
