Family: 👉@europe_treasures | @tesori_italiani⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 The Colossal Statue of Akhenaten is not an isolated example of statues of this Pharaoh. Multiple statues have been discovered that were all located within the court yard of the temple of Aten, Gempaatan, Karnak. Four of these are on display in the Egyptian Museum of Cairo, a further two at Luxor Museum, one in The Louvre Museum, one in Munich Museum and the rest are stored in Karnak and Cairo’s Museums. The statues were created during Akhenaten’s reign (1372 – 1355 B.C.) in the 18th Dynasty (1550 – 1295 B.C.) and are of approximately 5 metres in height. The Pharaoh is represented wearing a Khat headdress which is surrounded by the Sekhmety. His face has slanting eyes, a long nose, thick lips, sunken cheeks and a drooping chin with a false beard attached. The Pharaoh’s arms are crossed over his chest whilst holding the Heka and the Nekhekh. He is also represented with a thin neck, narrow shoulders with a fleshy chest and an unfit abdomen. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛

Khufu (aka Cheops) ruled during the Old Kingdom and was the second pharaoh of the fourth dynasty of kings. He succeeded his father, Pharaoh Snefru, and ruled from 2589 BC to 2566 BC, although this is a general estimation as far too little is known about this famous pharaoh.Thousands of years after his reign, Khufu is widely believed to have been a cruel king to the Egyptian people. However, there is not a lot of evidence to support this. Rumors have existed for millennia that the king forced people as slaves to build his pyramid (The Great Pyramid of Giza) but there is evidence to suggest that the laborers not only called themselves “friends of Khufu” but they were also paid for their work.Also known as the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the great pyramid is Khufu’s best known legacy. It remains today as one of the seven wonders of the world.The Great Pyramid at Giza took approximately 20 years to build. It stood 480 feet tall.The pyramid’s architect, Hemiunu, doubled as Khufu’s vizier, which made Hemiunu the second most powerful man in Egypt at the time

TEXTILE is one of the specialties of Oaxaca. Today I spent the day with a family owned business that produces their own wool and then products. I learned the entire process from the raw wool. Then the ancient cleaning, brushing then dying processes with indigo, turmeric, marigold flowers, pomegranates, moss and more. Then the art of weaving the different designs into the product. Such an amazing process. Truly a labor of love. All this takes place on a beautiful ranch where they work outside in the beautiful Mexican country side. I am super excited to share some of these products with you. Coming soon to our shop and site. #handmade#ancient#traditions#oaxaca#mexico#wool#cotton#rugs#pillows#textiles#mercadodeartesanias#cocostradingposttravel

The Hidden Science
The Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed by the Gnostics: it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry. Magism was the Science of Abraham and Orpheus, of Confucius and Zoroaster. It was the dogmas of this Science that were engraven on the tables of stone by Enoch and Trismegistus.
Moses purified and re-veiled them, for that is the meaning of the word reveal. He covered them with a new veil, when he made of the Holy Kabbalah the heritage of the people of Israel, and the inviolable Secret of its priests. The Mysteries of Thebes and Eleusis preserved among the nations some symbols of it, already altered, and the mysterious key whereof was lost among the instruments of an ever-growing superstition.

The Blazing Star
Measure a corner of the Creation, and multiply that space in proportional progression, and the entire Infinite will multiply its circles filled with universes, which will pass in proportional segments between the ideal and elongating branches of your Compass. Now suppose that from any point whatever of the Infinite above you a hand holds another Compass or a Square, the lines of the Celestial triangle will necessarily meet those of the Compass of Science, to form the Mysterious Star of Solomon.
All hypotheses scientifically probable are the last gleams of the twilight of knowledge, or its last shadows. Faith begins where Reason sinks exhausted. Beyond the human Reason is the Divine Reason, to our feebleness the great Absurdity, the Infinite Absurd, which confounds us and which we believe. For the Master, the Compass of Faith is above the Square of Reason; but both rest upon the Holy Scriptures and combine to form the Blazing Star of Truth.

The Lost Word
It was the remembrance of this scientific and religious absolute, of this doctrine that is summed up in a word, of this Word, in fine, alternately lost and found again, that was transmitted to the Elect of all the Ancient Initiations: it was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, the Alchemists, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their rites, of their signs more or less conventional, and, above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power.
The Hermetic Science of the early Christian ages, cultivated also by Geber, Alfarabius, and others of the Arabs, studied by the Chiefs of the Templars, and embodied in certain symbols of the higher Degrees of Freemasonry, may be accurately defined as the Kabbalah in active realization, or the Magic of Works. It has 3 analogous Degrees, Spiritual, Philosophical, and Physical realization.

How do we know that the symbolic woman named #BabylontheGreat, described in the Bible book of Revelation, pictures all false religion? Consider the evidence:
She could not be a literal woman because the imagery in Revelation is in the form of “signs,” or symbols.—Revelation 1:1.
Babylon the Great sits on waters, which represent “peoples and crowds and nations.” (Revelation 17:1, 5, 15) A literal woman cannot do that. False religion, however, gets its support from its huge membership.
This symbolic woman is a “great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.” In other words, she is organized and has international influence.—Revelation 17:18.
A spiritual harlot, Babylon the Great forms alliances with “the kings of the earth.” Moreover, these mourn her destruction. (Revelation 17:1, 2; 18:9) So she cannot be a political entity.
The #commercial leaders also mourn her destruction. (Revelation 18:15) Hence, she cannot be a secular commercial power.
The Bible describes the blending of the worship of God with a love for the world as spiritual adultery. (James 4:4) Babylon the Great fits that profile. Also, she promotes spiritism, a religious practice.—Revelation 18:23.
The #ancient city of Babylon, after which Babylon the Great is named, was a profoundly religious city.—Isaiah 47:1, 12, 13;Jeremiah 50:1, 2, 38.
Thus, we can say with confidence that Babylon the Great pictures the combined false #religions of the world.
“These are some good questions to ask till one decides on the song, one’s true song: What has happened to my soul-voice? What are the buried bones of my life? In what condition is my relationship to the instinctual Self? When was the last time I ran free? How do I make life come alive again?...
Like dry bones we so often start out in a desert. We feel disenfranchise, alienated, not connected to even a cactus clump. The ancients called the desert the place of divine revelation...
A desert is a place where life is very condensed. The roots of living things hold on to that last tear of water and the flower hoards it’s moisture by only appearing in early morning and late afternoon. Life in the desert is small but brilliant and most of what occurs goes on underground.” An excerpt from Women who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés

El prestigioso egiptólogo Zahi Hawass ha afirmado rotundamente durante una conferencia en la universidad de Palermo que sabe “dónde está la tumba perdida de Cleopatra”. Si definitivamente sale a la luz la tumba de la última reina de Egipto, una de las mujeres más famosas de la historia, podría ser el descubrimiento del siglo, un hallazgo “más importante aún que la tumba de Tutankamón”, en palabras de Hawass.
El egiptólogo, que lleva años dedicado a buscar la tumba de Cleopatra, asegura que todos los indicios le conducen a un ambiente subterráneo situado a varios metros de profundidad, excavado en el terreno a la sombra de las imponentes ruinas del templo Taposiris Magna, un lugar funerario a casi 30 kilómetros de Alejandría. Asimismo, cree que la zona estaría inundada por culpa del lago que hay en las cercanías del derruido templo.
Obviamente, el egiptólogo no ha revelado las coordenadas precisas de la tumba, aunque tiene claro que está a un paso de sacarla a la luz: “Estoy muy próximo. Creo haberla encontrado. Estoy en el buen camino. Tengo grandes esperanzas de dar con ella pronto”.
