A description of the experience

Corpus Hermeticum – Hermes Trismegistus  - Poimandres section 24

The Ascent of the Soul

To this Poimandres replied:  At first, when your physical body is dissolved, you surrender the body to change and the form it used to have vanishes.  Your Ethos [character] now devoid of power, is abandoned to the personal Daimon.  The body’s senses return to their respective sources, becoming absorbed in the astral energies, passion and desire withdraw to the irrational nature.
