In ancient Egypt, there was no word for religion, they understood Heka as the driving force that brought everything into existence and that underlied everything, in the physical and metaphysical sense.

“He” means “knot” which unites and connects the intelligible and physical world and “Ka” the driving force and energy that unites these apparent opposites.  The Egyptians considered that Heka for example was also present in symbols which were physical representations of timeless values.

Today it might often be misunderstood as magic in a supernatural way, but we can experience Heka in a small way, the energy that we generate by putting a timeless idea into a constant practice. For example the idea to make the immediate world around us a little bit more beautiful and just through our daily actions and interactions.
