This is the Papyrus Anana.
[Anana was chief scribe and king’s companion to Jentle Leti II about 1320 B. C. Behold then, words that echo down from 3,000 years, addressed directly to YOU.}
“Behold! is it not written in this roll? Read, ye who shall find in the days unborn, if your gods have given you the skill. Read, O children of the future, and learn the secrets of the past, which to you is so far away, and yet in truth so near.
“Men do not live once only and then depart hence forever; they live many times in many places, though not always in this world. That between each life there is a veil of darkness…
The doors will open at last, and show us all the chambers through which our feet wandered from the beginning.
“Our religion teaches us that we live on eternally. Now eternity having no end, can have had no beginning–it is a circle; therefore, if one be true, namely that we live on forever, it would seem that the other must be true also: namely, that we have always lived.
To men’s eyes God has many faces, and each one swears that the one he sees is the only true God. Yet they are all wrong, for all are true.
The Spirit should not be judged by the body or the god by his house.
All gods send their gift of love upon this earth, without which it would cease to be. My faith teaches me more clearly perhaps than yours, that life does not end with death, and therefore that love, being life’s soul, must endure while it endures.
The strength of the invisible tie will bind two souls together long after the world is dead.
The spirits or souls of one incarnation possibly may meet again in another incarnation, and may be drawn together as if by a magnet but for what cause neither knows.
Man comes into being many times, yet knows nothing of his past lives; except occasionally some daydream or a thought carries him back to some circumstance of a previous incarnation. He cannot, however, determine in his mind when or where the circumstance occurred only that it is something familiar. In the end, however, all of his various pasts will reveal themselves.”
