The Opening Of the Way by De Lubicz, Isha Schwaller
Isha Schwaller de Lubicz and her husband wrote several works on Egyptology in which they deviate from mainstream thought and propose a view that is more similar to Taoist, Buddhist, or Gnostic thought. They hold the view that the ancient Egyptians possessed an all-around advanced way of thinking of a more intuitive character, rather than supporting the traditional view mainstream Egyptology holds of them as a collection of primitives who performed monumental architectural feats simply to appease Isha Schwaller de Lubicz and her husband wrote several works on Egyptology in which they deviate from mainstream thought and propose a view that is more similar to Taoist, Buddhist, or Gnostic thought.
They hold the view that the ancient Egyptians possessed an all-around advanced way of thinking of a more intuitive character, rather than supporting the traditional view mainstream Egyptology holds of them as a collection of primitives who performed monumental architectural feats simply to appease the massive egos of Pharaohs who believed themselves to be gods. The author however, is far from being any blind devotee to Classicism and she instead presents a logical yet wonderfully fluid description of how the ancients or at least those of the priesthood may have thought as well as how we can internalize and benefit from those same ideas today.
In addition to having spent years on-site at Luxor with her husband, studying the Egyptian temples and hieroglpyhs, the author has incredible familiarity with Taoist, Christian, Gnostic, and Kabbalistic studies.
All of these subjects mix together in her description of concepts that could otherwise be very obscure.
The Opening of the Way: A Practical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of Ancient Egypt
This work is not however, full of detailed openning of Egyptian culture, ritual or daily life for that, reading through her fiction work Her-Bak or her husband’s books would more than suffice. Though it is implied that ancient Egyptian religious devotees held to the ways of thinking she discusses, she doesn’t slip into wild speculation and unproveable statements about the minds of the ancient Egyptians. Instead she puts forth a blended work of concepts, recommendations for meditative reflection, and profoundly simple and powerful words of wisdom gained as result of over a decade of on-site study of Luxor in addition to all those other occidental and oriental studies.
You could view this as a non-scientific work of mysticism, but isga the author’s writing style and means of presenting ideas is almost identical to a piece of Taoist literature and is probably best read with a similar attitude. As with her husband’s works and those of other esoteric French philosophers like Baudrillardthis author’s works requires reading at a slower pace, d nowhere near as frustratingly complicated to read as those other authors.
Though this is an esoteric work full of profound ideas, she never tries to lose you in the depths of complicated thoughts. She seems to be quite mindful of how her thoughts sound siha her readers, anticipating the potential complications and gracefully bringing the reader to the necessary complimenting thoughts that help cement the concept.
While it’s not essential to do so before reading this book, you might appreciate it more so if you read Rene Descartes short work Discourse on Schwakler. Isha Schwaller de Lubicz’s discussion of the “automaton” and also of various bodily functional systems tje, respiration, lymphatic, digestion, etc. May 16, Michael Kelly rated it did not like it.
The Opening Of the Way
Only the second book I have abandoned reading in the last five years, I usually finish a schealler at any cost, but dear Gods, I can’t abide another sentence of this tedious drivel.
I had actually looked forward to this. I read ‘Her-Bak’ and ‘Serpent in the Sky’ years ago and although they were a bit dry, I gained a lot from them.
Despite the title, there are only passing references to Egypt. I had expected a book which would refer to actual Egyptian myths and beliefs. This, however, includes chapters Only the second book I have abandoned reading in the last five years, I usually finish a book at any cost, but dear Gods, I can’t abide another sentence of this tedious drivel. This, however, includes chapters on Karma and Reincarnation. Ancient Egypt was opneing highly stratified society, but I find no references to Karma per se in their myths.
Add to the fact that you can’t read a paragraph without starting to snore.
I don’t know whether the author or the translator is to blame, but this is the most boring, repetitive, colourless drivel it has ever been my misfortune to inflict upon my brain. Jan 05, Alexander Kennedy rated it openng was amazing Shelves: This is a very good spiritual guide book that explains the different aspects of the Self and how to establish harmony in yourself.
The book is excellent at relating the material to various different religious traditions. I feel like my meditation practices have improved as a result of reading this book.
