My Current Read : "The Opening of the Way - A Practical Guide to the Wisdom Teachings of Ancient Egypt" by Isha Schwaller de Lubicz

An interesting, complex and enlightening read infused with esoteric knowledge (which makes a lot of sense once explained) such as alchemy and astrology. Highly recommended.

From the back cover:
"...In our present era, research into human nature has taken a biological, chemical, and mechanical direction that offers few helpful answers to questions about how life ought to be lived. The nervous imbalance caused by this analytical mentality cannot tolerate silence or stillness - essential elements of intuition and spiritual experience.
The author helps us recognize that it is by the path of silence and meditation that we understand our relationship to the universe. She introduces us to states of subtle energy that enable us to rise above the "animal man" and offers an overview of the human body that shows how the organs and bloodstream are connected to sources of vital energy. If we apply this knowledge correctly, we can gain awareness of the harmony that governs the human organism and how it is related to corresponding functions in the universe. Above all, The Opening of the Way guides us to the intelligence of the heart, which is our key to self-mastery and our connection to higher consciousness."
