How Pertinent is the Egyptian Book of the Dead to Today’s World View?
Date: 2/11/2020 6:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Byron Gorrell
Synopsis: The Egyptian Book of the Dead was in vogue between 1500 B.C. and 500 B.C. Containing dozens of “speeches” or “spells," the tome’s primary intent was to ease the passing of the dead into the afterlife. Created by numerous priests over 1000 years, no two books were alike, providing detailed descriptions of Egyptian gods, pitfalls to avoid and what the afterlife journey would be like. So what threads are woven through the book and what lessons may be gained? What does such an ancient and eclectic volume have to offer Humanity at large and Freemasonry in particular today?

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
