Categories: Egyptology, philosophy of law, history of religions Unlike ancient Rome, Egypt did not transmit any legal system to us, but rather an idea of justice our modern minds can hardly understand. In the ancient Egyptian world, almost all the texts and inscriptions speak of justice. All the texts of wisdom teach that one has to conform to Maat, an obscure and omnipresent concept that Egyptologists have translated into the expression "Goddess of Truth and Justice." Egyptian justice is so different from ours that Egyptologists and historians of religions believe they have not yet fully understood its meaning. They regret this fact because understanding Maat would be a gateway to a deeper understanding of the ancient Egyptian world. As for lawyers, they have limited themselves to the Greco-Roman sources on the philosophy of Justice and the discoveries of Egyptologists in this philosophical field remain thoroughly ignored. Thanks to her experience in ancient history of law and her ability to understand ancient symbols, the author provides Egyptology with the missing pieces that were needed to form a coherent image of Maat. Once revealed, Maat sheds a new and unexpected light on the whole of Egyptian civilization. As a bridge between traditionally separate fields of academic research, this book is a useful and groundbreaking contribution to Egyptology, the history of religions and the modern philosophy of law.

How to unlock the secrets, enigmas, and mysteries of Ancient Egypt and other old civilizations I realized while I was researching Maat, the ancient goddess of justice, how hard it was for Egyptologists to understand most of the ancient Egyptian artifacts only with their conscious mind. Our modern mental structure bars us from entering and comprehending the logic of ancient peoples. The difference in understanding the world is why so many aspects of ancient cultures remain enigmatic and strange, even for the most intelligent modern scholars. The ancient people possessed a much better sense of the energies of life and nature than modern man does. These ancients explored the laws and properties of the intangible world and its action upon the material world. They gained valuable knowledge that has been preserved in their archeological remains as well as in their archaic legal systems. This type of knowledge was often rendered in symbolic dream-like language and images that modern scholars are not trained to understand. Moreover, even when this knowledge is rendered in remarkably clear language, how can one fully understand what one has never experienced? It is when we dream that we come closer to the mental universe of ancient peoples. While dreaming, modern man becomes like the ancients-aware and concerned about life-energy, a capacity modern man has now lost in his waking state. Through learning a unique technique to decipher their dreams, modern scholars would be enabled to understand more fully and perfectly how ancient people perceived the world around them differently. In this book, you will find an explanation of the technique I teach in my workshops, which is based on more than 20 years of personal research of ancient legal systems and the connections between dreams and reality. My approach is completely different from and much more practical than other techniques regarding dreams. This teaching would be of great help and benefit to all scholars and intelligent people who endeavor to advance our understanding of the ancient Egyptian civilization and of other ancient worlds.

In the beginning of creation, the world was built on the foundation of The Divine Law of Maat/Kongo, as known by The Great Nile Valley Civilization. This Divine Law gave birth to everything we have today . "I-Vine Spheres" is a book that can help children and adults alike to begin to explore the accurate science of Creation and the complex anatomy of the Whole Spirit (Hidden Life Force/Energy/Vibes). 'I' relates to the Self (Source/Indwelling Divinity/Omnipresent/One Being/Conscience/World Soul/InI). The 'Vine' refers to the interconnection, inter-relation and inter-dependance of all things as fixed by nature within the beautiful cultivation of The I-Vine Spheres of Life. Many religions tell us we are like (made in the image of) The Almighty, but fail to fully explain/simplify what these likenesses are. This Book will show you and your children the 11 aspects of Being which are 'God/Christ like'. This book will outline a simple version of the I-Vine Spheres of Life; Paut Neteru (Cake of the Gods); Enead. The colors given to each sphere are the actual colors relating to that aspect of being or faculty of the spirit. Your children will be able to enrich and spark their inner Self, and gain connection of colors in the mind. Their are activities in this book, and your child will intuitively share with you the colors or activities they favor mostly, and allow you to learn more of your children. The Spirit is a body of Laws governing both the seen (its denser form) and unseen (less dense forms) phenomena. This I-Vine Spheres book will outline the main 11 Laws of the Spirit, and also provide a solid knowledge base and substantial food for the growth/development of impressionable minds. As well as minds that need substantial food to be successful holistically. Throughout all history and time, Afrikan people have used this reality to develop rites of passages (to know self), governments and technology. Principles, morals and astrologicial/cosmic knowledge is transferred via story telling in The Afrikan oral, visual and written traditions. This is the very foundation of the laws/institutes that continue to govern civil societies to this day. In the same way the well known '42 declarations of Maat' were practical expressions/statements/affirmations derived from the 11 main laws of our Being. We could now do better with exemplifying and teaching Divine Law/I-Vine Law, for the redemption and salvation of all people. It proven difficult for soldiers, linguistics and museum curators to explain ancient teachings/concepts of the Kamau (Ancient Egyptian) Sages, Fari (Pharaohs'), Priests, astrologers and prophets. It has been difficult for them to know what the sacred scriptures meant to the great ancient authors of the Afrikan Tradition. Misinterpretation and poor understandings come from numerous invasions, looting and the deliberate destruction of monuments. This book is corrective of such errors in interpretations about the meanings of the sacred sciences of the Whole Spirit/Vibes/Hidden Life Force. This book was inspired by a Rastafari/reggae song called '11 Laws of Maat' recorded by the author under the name Blessed Barak*. Therefore this book has strong elements of Xaymacan (Jamaica) patious and the author has thoughtfully included a dictionary in the book for those who are not so familiar with it. He is quite proud to be able to give a patious reading book to the many children of the Afrikan diaspora who have been carried beyond. Also, due to the globalisation of the Rastafari way of Life, many people of other cultures can enjoy hearing and reading the patious and Rastafari Language. *A complimentary free audio download of the song is available by e-mailing info@lionsdenfam.org (offer ends Feb 2013)
 Dreams are at the heart of a process where tangible and intangible worlds are intimately intermingled. Indeed, a dream is an intangible phenomenon occurring in a physical body that stands in an environment both material and informational (intangible). A systematic investigation of the connections between dreams and reality sheds new light on the dream process and on the functioning of the mind. This book invites you, the reader, to discover the results you can achieve through a more comprehensive and unified approach to the dream process. It gives you advice on how to carry out your own research. Reading this book will help you become better aware of the role played by your body at the meeting point between dreams and reality, between the tangible and the intangible (Chapter 1). The book describes an efficient method for observing the dream process (Chapter 2) and explains the results you can achieve with it through your own experimentation (Chapter 3). Through your personal exploration of the whole dream process you will be able to verify for yourself the reality of certain faculties of the mind which are commonly considered to be "paranormal". You will see that they can be explained rationally. Chapter 4 of the book explains how you can use the dream process to find answers to your questions, whether they regard your daily life (health, work, relationships, life guidance) or your artistic or scientific creativity. The last chapter (Chapter 5) explains why faculties today considered to be paranormal are destined to a natural collective awakening.



With this book, I invite you to observe your dreams and their connections with your reality, with a mind as neutral as possible. This is the best way to understand the meaning of your dreams. Try, then, to forget all you have ever heard about dreams, and just look at them and observe the whole dream process, and not only the dreams. Everything I assert in the book can be verified through personal experience by using the proposed method of observation. With this method everyone, even the most skeptical person, can verify the existence of unusual faculties of the mind, and learn to develop and use them.

There is no death in the Osirian religion, only decay and change, and periodic renewal; only evolution and transformation in the domain of matter and the transubstantiation into spirit. In the so-called death of Osiris it is rebirth, not death, exactly the same as in the changes of external nature. At the close of the day the solar orb went down and left the sun god staring blankly in the dark of death. Taht the moon god met him in Amenta with the eye of Horus as the light the was to illuminate the darkness of the subterranean world. from Egyptian Book of the Dead and the Mysteries of Amenta It goes unappreciated by modern Egyptologists, but it is embraced by those who savor the concept of a hidden history of humanity, and those who approach all human knowledge from the perspective of the esoteric. Gerard Massey 's massive Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World first published in 1907 and the crowning achievement of the self-taught scholar redefines the roots of Christianity via Egypt, proposing that Egyptian mythology was the basis for Jewish and Christian beliefs. Here, Cosimo proudly presents Book 4 of Ancient Egypt, in which Massey discusses the Egyptian Book of the Dead as the pre-Christian word of God, and explores the idea that Amenta, the threshold to the Egyptian underworld, is the first overt expression of a human desire for a noncorporeal afterlife. Massey goes on to connect the mystery of the mummy to the mystery of the Christ by likening the Christian dogma of physical resurrection to the Egyptian impetus for mummification. Peculiar and profound, this work will intrigue and delight readers of history, religion, and mythology. British author GERALD MASSEY (1828 1907) published works of poetry, spiritualism, Shakespearean criticism, and theology, but his best-known works are in the realm of Egyptology, including A Book of the Beginnings and The Natural Genesis.
