Egyptian Valley of the Kings – Those who must descend into Hell.

In the last post, I posited that the pyramids were the earliest renditions of what would later be known as Kabbala’s Tree of Life. This is the traditional Way of the King or Way of Passion/Kundalini. The earliest known myth that maps out this spiritual progression, which promotes the shedding of ego by the animus-based personality, is the Sumerian myth of Gilgamesh. There were 2 more pyramids built on the Giza plateau during the 4th dynasy. Then, pyramid building petered out. The first king of the 18th dynasty, Ahmose I, built the very last royal pyramid during what is known as the Middle Kingdom.

The Egyptian New Kingdom was marked by a very different means of burial. The oldest known burial in the Valley of the Kings is KV-20. This is also the very first time that The Egyptian Book of the Dead is painted on the walls of a tomb. There is much confusion as to who built this tomb because two different kings have their sarcophaguses here. According to Zahi Hawass for National Geographic, the pharaoh who built this tomb was Hatshepsut. She donated a sarcophagus to her father Tuthmosis I, and was buried beside her father. She most likely did this as a reminder to all through eternity of her rightful claim to the throne. Later, it seems that her son and grandson moved Tuthmosis I out of KV-20 and into KV-38. They then added more offerings to their grandfather’s tomb.

If it is true that Hatshepsut built the first rock cut tomb in the Valley of the Kings, complete with the first know rendition of the Book of the Dead, then this is a monumental change in the religion of Egypt. Instead of the king being shot up into the heavens and falling to earth, the new philosophy requires the king to go down into hell and fight the demon serpent Apophis through the night and be resurrected in the morning with the rising sun. This down first philosophy matches the anima-based philosophy of the Way of Light or the Way of Grace. The philosophy of the Egyptian Book of the Dead matches the water to wine system of spiritual development, which is the natural spiritual development system of a woman or anima-based personality.

What is interesting is that even though the later pharaohs hacked Hatshepsut’s name off most of the monuments and thus out of the historical record, they did not demolish this new spiritual philosophy. As time goes on, this philosophy was expanded and later it was extended to all those who could afford a “proper” burial. Burial in a tomb with scriptures was no longer reserved for the king.
