This second book by leading world Egyptologist Stephen Mehler is as fundamental as his first book The Land of Osiris. This one is also based in many aspects on analysis of long discussions Mehler had with Abd'El Hakim Awyan, a keeper of oral tradition of the indigenous people of Egypt. In the book Mehler discloses ways that brought ancient people to different religions known today as ancient Egyptian religion, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. He shows that from the pre-historic period to the beginning of the dynastic one Khemitians (the original name of Egyptians) followed pure spiritual practices when people were looking for fusing of their thoughts and the ascension of their spirit. Then Mehler gives a detailed explanation of the appearance of first churches and priests. He accounts for ways and methods, which those priests used to turn people to new ideas when main aspects of nature and spirit became transformed to notions of gods. A very subtle analysis! Mehler could puzzle out very difficult events that took place in Egypt around 1500 BC, which allowed him to present us persons who decided to resuscitate prehistoric spiritual Khemitian traditions. That dramatic period of ancient Egypt resulted in the migration of 12 tribes of Khemitians to a new land known today as Israel. Mehler uncovers those events to the smallest detail, which so far have been unknown even for researchers.
The reader will learn names of top scientists who have studied that time and see a long line of historical persons, pictures of their statues and mummies. The reader will learn that the Rosicrucian Order also originated in Egypt at that time. What was its goal? Who were its leaders and members? At least the reader will learn the name of the true author of Shakespeare plays who also was a member of the Order. This second book by S. Mehler would be of great benefit to those who are interested in archaeology, Egyptology, ancient history and early religions and those who understand that spiritual practice is much more important than more modern religion concepts that lead only to separation of people.
