Embrace yourself for the afterlife

Like the book of the dead, the Mountain of the Dead stands out as one of ancient Egypt’s mesmerizing mysteries. Both the book & the Mountain have one theme in common and that is death.

known as the mountain of the dead for ancient Egyptians used to bury their dead in the west bank of the Nile around its foothills. But is this a fair designation of the mountain?

  1. About the after”life” i wonder if it means physical existence. Which is when the soul loses direct connection to her spirit. Conscious mind veils it from the soul.


  2. If the invisible realms of spirit is really where life is cause afterall, Spirit means life, light. Without spirit there is no life. Therefore could after”life” really be physical incarnation of the soul where her spiritual reality would then be veiled by the conscious mind?
