Union is cemented by matrimonial union of Anu and Orion Queen
The name Anu means “One who is of Heaven” or simply “The Heavenly One”. It is important, though, that we bear in mind that in antiquity, the term Heaven was not overloaded with the ethereal connotations it is in our day. It did not fundamentally mean the spiritual place we’re supposed to go to after we die: that was a secondary concept. Heaven in antiquity largely referred to the Sirius and Orion star systems, these being the places where the “gods”, the scientifically and technologically advanced Anunnaki, originated.
Heaven was the place not of spiritual gods but of flesh-and-blood gods. In fact, it was not to Heaven the ancients looked forward to go when they died. Rather, they wished to join their ancestors in a subterranean world right here on Earth. Although they said their gods (the Anunnaki) came from Heaven, they themselves were of the belief they came from the underworld and it was there they were to return upon their demise. It was the advent of religion, a Anunnaki blindfold, that propagandised the focus on the
When they directly ruled Earth, the Anunnaki were passed off as gods by primitive mankind owing to the seemingly supernatural things they did, such as flying aircraft, and their extraordinary longevity, both of which seemed like miracles to our forbearers. The planet Nibiru was also considered to be Heaven in that every time the Sirian King Anu came to visit Earth, he came by way of Nibiru, which is a virtual global spaceship. The Anunnaki actually used to promise mankind that if they were tame and obedient, they would be taken to Nibiru physically or proceed there after they died and not to the underworld, which was now span as an infernal known as Hell. Those who were physically taken to Nibiru at one time or the other included Adam, Enoch, Jacob, and Elijah. Enoch went there twice and never returned after his second foray. Elijah is actually being awaited by the Jews even as we speak.
OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN
Anu was the “Our Father Who art in Heaven” in what is called “The Lord’s Prayer”. (It was not Jesus’s prayer though; it was put in his mouth by the gospel writers. The prayer was lifted straight from what ancient Egyptians called “The Maxims of Anu”, precepts which are preserved on a papyrus archived in a Cairo museum.) He was the third ruler of Sirius under male rule and the 22nd overarching ruler of Nibiru. Initially, Anu had one senior wife (Antu) and five concubines, who had their own quarters in a wing of the palace called the House of Concubines. He would over time sire over 80 children.
Anu’s Cabinet is said to have included the following: Chief Chamberlain; three Commanders in charge of the Rocket ships; two Commanders of the Weapons; a Minister of the Purse; two Chief Justices; two Masters of Written Knowledge; two Chief Scribes; and five Assistant Scribes. Defence and “Star Wars” seemed to be of paramount importance: of the 11-man Cabinet (excluding the 7 scribes) five were military men! The palace itself, which was located in what was called the “Pure Place”, was protected by two awesome weapon systems, overseen by two princes going by the titles Commanders of the Weapons.
Besides a Cabinet setup, there was a Council of Counsellors (Advisors) as well as what the Sumerians called an “Assembly of the Gods”. This was a form of Kgotla forum at which it was mandatory for everybody present – hundreds of people from all walks of life – to voice a view. It was held in the Throne Room of the palace and was meant to mobilise opinion from the common herd.
When Anu came to power in Sirius, he appointed his eldest son by Antu as ruler of Nibiru. The name of this son was AN-EN, meaning “Crown Prince”. His titular name, however, was ENE-EL-ILE, which meant “Lord of Abundant Clarity”. This was the title given to the commander of exploratory space flights as well as the international space station. In Sumerian, ENE-EL-ILE was abbreviated to ENLIL. Enlil, who when he later administered planet Earth was also known as Jehovah or Yahweh, had served in the global air force as well as star ship pilot and was highly esteemed as a disciplined and efficient administrator. However, Enlil was not allowed to rule Nibiru as King: he was to do so only as Viceroy, that is, Nibiru’s ruler on behalf of Anu.
Entrusting rule of Nibiru to Enlil was both strategic and precautionary on the part of Anu. It was strategic because Enlil was his own flesh and blood. It was precautionary because being so far afield, it would be difficult for Enlil to plot the ouster of his father as was commonplace those days.
TWO GREAT ROYALS TIE KNOT
When Anu became King of Sirius, his foremost aim was to declare autonomy from the Orion Queen, to whom the Sirius star system was subordinate. Anu was incensed that the Orion Queen had, so he suspected, allowed Alalu to get away scotfree with his cleverly contrived riddance of his grandfather Anan. He therefore reasoned that if the Queen could brook such a crime against his iconic grandfather, she could also condone its repeat against him by elements within the Sirian armed forces who remained loyal to Alalu.
Now, the Queen’s intelligence apparatus pervaded both the military and civil society of Sirius. So it wasn’t long before she got wind of what Anu was contemplating. The Queen had cause to be anxious about Anu’s machinations. For starters, Sirius had made great headway in military might. In fact, the technology of Sirius now surpassed even that of Orion. Second, Reptilians of the Draco star system had set up their own colony in the planetary system of Betelgeuse, a prominent star in Orion. These Reptilians were initially mercenaries King Anan had hired when he rebelled against Queen Uraki II. Their founding of their own world in Betelgeuse was part of the peace settlement between the two warring parties of the Wolfen World at the ascendancy of King Anan.
The Queen was concerned that if Anu went ahead to declare independence from Orion and the Orion army pounced, the Betelgeuse Reptilians would come to the aid of Anu and the war would be long and protracted, with untold numbers of casualties on either side. Moreover, it was possible that Anu could win the war, with the result that Orion would lose control of the prestigious and phenomenally lucrative 9th Passageway.
In order to forestall such a scenario, the Queen came up with a well-thought-through plan. Anu and herself should come together in marriage, so that there would be only one King and one Queen of the conjoined Syrian and Orion Empires. Both Anu and the Orion Queen were relatively young and were of the same generation although the Queen was slightly older: both had succeeded to the throne at roughly the same time. The matrimonial union, therefore, would not be reprehensibly out of kilter.
Soon, royal advisers from both sides met and it was out of their deliberations that the marriage was broached. When the proposition was tabled before Anu, he endorsed it wholeheartedly without realising that it was actually initiated by the Queen. For some time after Anu popped the question, the Queen even was cunning enough to play hard to get before she finally said yes. It was a very easy decision on her part since the Orion Queen never married: she was only sexually serviced by a harem of men known as the KHARIM. Anu, on the other hand, had his great wife Antu to contend with. If he married the Orion Queen, it meant Antu would have to take second place. Moreover, it also meant that Antu’s firstborn son, Enlil, would in all likelihood no longer be heir: he would be supplanted by the firstborn son of the Orion Queen.
But since Anu was King, there was no way the wishes of Antu would stand in his way, nor the feelings of his heir Enlil. To cut a long story short, King Anu and Queen Ma of Orion had two weddings, one on the SSS Word in Orion and another on the Wolfen World in Sirius. It was the most topical wedding in the already advanced and attuned worlds of the Milky Way Galaxy, attended by dignitaries from every major, friendly star system and all the colonised or subsidiary planets. The Sirian King retained his title as Anu, whereas the Orion Queen chose the official title of EKE (also rendered “EGE” or “IGI”, meaning “Creatrix”), abbreviated as KI. In the subsidiary worlds such ours, however, she was primarily addressed as KE-EA, meaning “Divine Creatrix”, also rendred as GA-EA or GA-IA, the famous “mythological” goddess of Earth during a certain era. She was also referred to as Antu since it somewhat rhymed with Anu.
The union of the two mega monarchs explains why Orion and Sirius have been the most famous star systems in the history of Earth in the last 500,000 years, with major landmarks (such as the Egyptian pyramids, for instance), astronomically aligned, primarily, with Mintaka, the throne world of Orion, and Sirius A.
ENKI APPEARS ON THE SCENE
The Orion Queen’s oldest son went by the princely title EA, also rendered AJA, AYA, or EJE. Ea originally meant “Diving Being”. In Sumerian times (about 6000 years ago), however, it would come to mean “He whose house is water”. This latter meaning had two connotations in the main. The first referred to fish (the emblem of the astrological Age of Pisces which was associated with Ea), as indeed fish reside in a body of water. The second had to do with space. The ancients referred to space as the “Ocean of the Khaa”. Khaa was a euphemism for the SSS beings, the people of Orion. It was a fitting name for space as the Orion Queen controlled the 9th Passageway, the principal galactic trade route .
Ea’s other title was ENE-EKE, meaning “Creator Prince”. ENE–EKE would over time be abbreviated as ENKI (or EN-GI). Ea was called Enki because he was at once the son of the Orion Queen and the SSS world’s master geneticist. As a geneticist, he was a virtual creator since he could mix the genes of several species to create a new species or simply tinker with the genome to get rid of certain traits and bring up new ones. It is in fact acknowledged throughout our galaxy that the SSS race, also known as the serpent race, are the best geneticists there are.
Now, in case you have forgotten what we said about the SSS people, we did underline the fact that they reproduced both sexually and asexually (without fertilisation by male gametes). This phenomenon was a carryover from their initial evolutional background as Khebs – a dragonfly-bee. We all know that bees produce either sexually or asexually. In the case of sexual reproduction, the resulting offspring is always a female. In the case of asexual reproduction, the result is always a male. The SSS people continued to reproduce that way even as humanoids, such that in the case of the Queen, all the princess were born through sexual reproduction and all the princes were born by way of asexual reproduction. As such, Enki had no father at all: only a mother. Where have we heard that before? In the Jesus story of course.
On the SSS World, princes did not succeed to the throne, being a predominantly matrilineal society. Only princesses did. Orion didn’t have kings at all. As such, Enki was not destined to rule. He would always be secondary to his sisters.
ENLIL LEAPFROGS ENKI
The marriage of King Anu and the Orion Queen was largely ceremonial. Whilst it would be consummated, it was not meant to produce new offspring. The reasons this was the case are not clear in the cosmic chronicles. The question that thus arose was, who would succeed to the joint throne once both the King and Queen passed on?
Male chauvinism seems to have rode roughshod over female assertion. There were two senior princes at the time. These were Enlil, Anu’s firstborn son, and Enki, the Queen’s firstborn son. Enki was slightly older than Enlil, but it was agreed that Enlil should be the anointed heir since he was of male parentage. But the third in line to the throne would not be Enlil’s son: it would be Enki’s son. That was how rulership of the joint Sirius and Orion kingdom would alternate.
Enlil was excited by the development, whereas Enki was wroth. He just couldn’t understand why his mother had compromised to the extent she did when Orion had been historically the mightier empire. His diminution in rank would continue to bubble in him throughout his life.
It was also decided that in order to further consolidate relations between Sirius and Orion, Enlil should marry one of the Queen’s daughters who was still single at the time. Outwardly, Enlil agreed but he said he would only marry at a much later date since he was presently too busy running the affairs of Nibiru. What he kept to himself was the fact that he believed in racial purity: under no circumstances was he going to mix Sirian blood with a woman from a serpentine race, people he looked down upon. In point of fact, the lady he had set his sights on was his half-sister Ninmah, who he was already courting but who was still too young to wed.
Anu, however, had decided that Ninmah should marry Enki and Enki was agreeable to that. Meanwhile, Enki was given the green light to take an already grown woman before Ninmah. Her name was Damkina. Damkina was the daughter of the fugitive Alalu. The Queen had decided that Alalu should be made to feel still very much part of Anunnaki royalty even if he had been ousted so that he could do his best to still continue working in the best interests of the empire wherever he was.
Operationwise though, Enki too was to be based on planet Nibiru to assist Enlil in its administration in light of his legendary wisdom and brilliance. In every setting, Enki distinguished himself as of exceptional genius. There was nothing that he didn’t know, hence his other nickname as the “Knower of Everything”. He was a brilliant engineer, a brilliant geneticist, a brilliant physician, a brilliant physicist, a brilliant architect, a brilliant teacher-philosopher. But he had one major weakness: he was a serial philanderer. Enlil on the other had was very morally upstanding.
It says a lot about Anu’s political tact that the most senior princes were stationed well away from a place where it would be comparatively easier for any of the two to seize power. Paranoia was an integral trait of the reigning monarch in Sirius those days. Moreover, since Enki and Enlil would naturally not get along, the temptation for Enlil to break away from the Sirian and Orion Empire would be automatically checked by Enki. Thus a disgruntled Enki was more of an asset than a liability to Anu.
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
