"Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering." Don Miguel Ruiz

One of the two lions of god Aker
One of the two lions of god Aker, who was closely associated with the journey of the sun through the realms of the underworld.
Aker appears as a pair of twin lions, one named Duaj (meaning “yesterday”) and the other Sefer (meaning “tomorrow”). Aker was thus often titled “He who’s looking forward and behind”. Detail of a wall painting from the tomb of Inherkhau (TT359). New Kingdom, 20th Dynasty, ca. 1189-1077 BC. Deir el-Medina, West Thebes.
