Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, “Did you bring joy?” The second was, “Did you find joy?”

open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one,
even as the river and the sea are one.”
