The Library of Khem follow the Path of Truth, a monotheistic religion and strict philosophical system wherein ones born Caste determines the Path to greatest honor within the divine tapestry of cosmic unfoldment. Though not all of the People hold this faith in their hearts they certainly make a good show of it as heresy is often punished. The Path of Truth is maintained by the People's Glorious Library. The most dramatic of their beliefs is that all of humanity shares a single soul marking the struggles of all greater than the profits of any individual. The most revered being in the path of truth is the Hermetica whom thrice born brought the Tablets of Truth and spread knowledge to the sapient races. The Hermetica is also given credit for teaching the people of Khem architecture, engineering, agriculture, writing and so on. Even today he is seen as the spirit of knowledge within us and given praise when creation is wrought. Next in line of worship is Gaia who through the Ozians, Khemists learned they were all a part of. Gaia (as the planet and all on it) is viewed reverently by those on the Path of Truth as many try to breathe as one with her, especially among the Servile. Gaia worship is of course closely linked to the worship of Ta (the sun), Bringer of Dawn, Flame of Truth, Heart of the Path. Ta is seen as the source of all life by those of Khemist faith.
Laws of Truth
The Law of Stillness:
Take time to be silent, to just BE. Meditate for 30 minutes twice a day. Practice non-judgment.
The Law of Karma:
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind.
The Law of Least Resistance:
Accept people, situations, and events as they occur. Take responsibility for your situation and for all events seen as problems. Relinquish the need to defend your point of view. The universe finds the path let it control you, take time and breath. Then just flow in the situation and the outcome will turn out for the best.
The Law of Detachment:
Allow yourself and others the freedom to be who they are. Do not force solutions—allow solutions to be emergent. You will get better results if you pay attention to the signs left by the One.
The Law of Dharma:
Seek your higher Self. Discover your unique talents. Ask yourself how you are best suited to serve humanity. Using your unique talents and serving others brings unlimited bliss and abundance.
The Law of Tapestry:
You are a shining drop on the spiders net, shine in your glorious place and know the web gives your beauty form. Do not work against your place in life as it is yours to make come to life. Resist not the wisdom of Gaia and Ta, resist not those taken with the spirit of the Hermetica, resist not Seperation for you are part of the whole and the whole of you.
Dakhma,(Inglish: “tower of silence”), Khemish funerary tower erected on a hill for the disposal of the dead according to the Khemist rites. Such towers are about 25 feet (8 m) high, built of brick or stone, and contain gratings on which the corpses are exposed. After vultures have picked the bones clean, they fall into a pit below, thereby fulfilling the injunction that a corpse must not suffer contact with either fire or earth.
