Author: by Erich Neumann
Princeton University Press
The Origins and History of Consciousness draws on a full range of world mythology to show how individual consciousness undergoes the same archetypal stages of development as human consciousness as a whole. Erich Neumann was one of C.G. Jung’s most creative students and a renowned practitioner of analytical psychology in his own right.
In this influential book, Neumann shows how the stages begin and end with the symbol of the Uroboros, the tail-eating serpent. The intermediate stages are projected in the universal myths of the World Creation, Great Mother, Separation of the World Parents, Birth of the Hero, Slaying of the Dragon, Rescue of the Captive, and Transformation and Deification of the Hero.
Throughout the sequence, the Hero is the evolving ego consciousness. Featuring a foreword by Jung, this Princeton Classics edition introduces a new generation of readers to this eloquent and enduring work.

12. Awakening Osiris: A New Translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead
Author: by Normandi Ellis
The Egyptian Book of the Dead is one of the oldest and greatest classics of Western spirituality. Until now, the available translations have treated these writings as historical curiosities with little relevance to our contemporary situation. This new version, made from the hieroglyphs, approaches the Book of the Dead as a profound spiritual text capable of speaking to us today.
These writings suggest that the divine realm and the human realm are not altogether separate-they remind us that the natural world, and the substance of our lives, is fashioned from the stuff of the gods. Devoted like an Egyptian scribe to the principle of “effective utterance”, Normandi Ellis has produced a prose translation that reads like pure, diaphanous verse.
13. Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus
Author: by Ahmed Osman
Bear & Company
A reinterpretation of biblical and Egyptian history that shows Moses and the Pharaoh Akhenaten to be one and the same. Provides dramatic evidence from both archaeological and documentary sources. A radical challenge to long-established beliefs on the origin of Semitic religion.
During his reign, the Pharaoh Akhenaten was able to abolish the complex pantheon of the ancient Egyptian religion and replace it with a single god, the Aten, who had no image or form. Seizing on the striking similarities between the religious vision of this heretic pharaoh and the teachings of Moses, Sigmund Freud was the first to argue that Moses was in fact an Egyptian.
Now Ahmed Osman, using recent archaeological discoveries and historical documents, contends that Akhenaten and Moses were one and the same man. In a stunning retelling of the Exodus story, Osman details the events of Moses/Akhenaten’s life: how he was brought up by Israelite relatives, ruled Egypt for seventeen years, angered many of his subjects by replacing the traditional Egyptian pantheon with worship of the Aten, and was forced to abdicate the throne.
14. The Egyptian Book Of The Dead: The Papyrus Of Ani

“Book” is the closest term to describe this loose collection of texts consisting of different magic spells honoring the gods and goddesses. This text was written by many Egyptian magicians and priests over a period of about 1,000 years to assist a dead person through his journey to the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife.

16. The Book of the Dead: Book of Emerging Forth into the Light
Author: by SIr Wallis Budge
Surely one of the most evocative titles ascribed to an ancient text, the Egyptian Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text. Created sometime around the beginning of Egypt’s New Kingdom the text was in active use to around 50 BCE.
Written by a succession of priests over a period of approximately 1,000 years the Book of the Dead was one of a series of sacred manuals serving the needs of the spirits of the elite dead to flourish in the afterlife.
The text is not a book, as we understand it today. Rather, it is a collection of spells intended to assist a newly departed soul to navigate the perils the Egyptians associated with their Duat or afterlife.1. The Egyptian Book of the Dead is not a single book and was not written by a single person.
It is actually a collection of text written down over centuries.2. Since the texts were written over hundreds of years, different texts have different authors.3. The original text was known as pert em hru’ (according to Encyclopedia) or rw nw prt m hrw’ (according to Wikipedia) in Egyptian which literally translates into either manifested in the light’ or coming forth by day’.4.
