Knowledge has been an oscillating pendulum over the centuries. Great concepts of mankind shine forth like supernova from the heavens, but gradually fade and disappear. One of mankind’s innate gifts, however, is the ability to revise and conserve knowledge, which becomes an inspiration to new and advanced wisdom.
One such example is humanity’s revived interest in, and study of, ancient Egyptian Religion and Mysteries. But how much do we really know about the roots of Egyptian spirituality and its mysteries which date back at least 5000 years? Author Earle de Motte uses his knowledge, acquired over many years of study and research, to shed light on this fascinating subject in his book, Egyptian Religion and Mysteries.
His book informs its readers that, unlike the other great empires of Greece and Rome in classical times and Christendom in the Middle Ages, the Egyptian state had fewer dissident sub-groups within its imperial boundaries, tribes who resisted oppression and whose inclination was to retain something of their previous religious beliefs. The highly-developed spiritual consciousness of the Ancient Egyptians influenced the evolution of a Religion of State that ensured maximum and loyal participation by the people in general, together with a system of Gnosis by initiation and the raising of consciousness among the few who were ready for such instruction and experience. This book explores aspects of Egypt’s Religion and Mysteries in detail.
Divided into several chapters, Egyptian Religion and Mysteries provides in-depth discussions on significant topics such as Egyptian Spirituality, the Akhenaten Heresy and its Impact on Religious and Mystical Thought, the Soul and Its Journey in Egyptian Metaphysics, Secrets of the Book of the Dead, Egyptian Mysteries as the Prototype of Ancient Mystery Schools, the Wisdom of the Egyptian Sages from Ancient Egypt to the Hermetic Mystics of Alexandria, the Heart as the Spiritual Self and the Monitor of Morality in Human Behaviour, and so much more.
In Egyptian Religion and Mysteries, de Motte has written an informative and enlightening book that provides the reader with a better understanding of Egyptian Religion and a solid grasp of the Egyptian Mysteries. This book will surely appeal to religious scholars, students of mysticism, and anyone fascinated by the life and beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians.
