and beyond its house a world,
and beyond its world a heaven."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tomb filled with gold jewelry, coins unearthed in Greece
I am often fascinated by the ancients. Holding on to treasures to take with them to the next life. And many other rituals of their time. Strong, deep beliefs, those that life often hinged on. It is amazing to read of these discoveries in our world today. Enjoy a moment of reflection on a time when life was distinctly different, however...very similar.
With spirit, old and new...~j
PS. not completely unrelated is a book I have recently finished, Magic into Science, the Story of Paracelsus by Henry M Pachter. Fascinating! A curious and contradictory figure of the Renaissance period, physician, scientist, healer and alchemist...just in case anyone is interested in this kind of historical information on medicine & psychiatry ;-)
