Alalu Strikes Gold!

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER…

History is made as ousted daredevil King surmounts impossible odds and lands the life-saving mineral on our planet

As the spaceship-borne, Earth-bound  Alalu sped through space, he was obscured by  the giant planet Jupiter, the Solar System’s largest – it is 1300 times Earth’s size and over 160 times the size of Nibiru, the planet of the Old Testament gods.

“The giant KISHAR, Foremost of the Firm Planets, its size was overwhelming,”    Alalu was later to recall as documented by Enki, the most famous Anunnaki.

The Anunnaki, the race that dwells on Nibiru,   styled Jupiter (KISHAR) as “Foremost of the Firm Planets” and Saturn (ANSHAR) as “Foremost Prince of the Heavens”. In other words, they regarded Saturn as more expansive than Jupiter. How so?  

Well, although Jupiter is 130 times larger than Saturn, the latter occupies a larger space slot because of its picturesque rings, which extend from 6,630 to 120,700 km above its equator.  It is only when rings are not taken into account that Jupiter, which also has rings but are not as pronounced as those of Saturn, upholds its status as the largest planet. Indeed, Jupiter is the largest of firm planets given that the rings are primarily composed of chunks of ice (Saturn’s) and dust (Jupiter’s) and therefore do not constitute firm land. 

Using his powerful, state-of-the-art on-board telescope, Alalu also noted the following about Jupiter: “Swirling storms obscured its face, coloured spots they moved about. A host beyond counting, some slowly, the celestial god encircled. Troublesome were their ways, back and forth they were surging. KISHAR itself a spell was casting, divine lightning it was thrusting.”

What Alalu observed half- a-million years ago modern science came to know only relatively recently – in the 20th century in the main. Alalu talks of  Jupiter’s countless host – its moons. At the last count, Jupiter had 64 moons and many more almost certainly await discovery given that the known moons were not “discovered” at once but over a long period of time.  Alalu also makes mention of Jupiter’s swirling storms. The worldwide web’s most informative encyclopaedia, Wikipedia, says, “Jupiter has powerful storms always accompanied by lightning strikes”, exactly as Alalu put it.  As for coloured spots which were always moving about, we know that Jupiter is awash with red, white and brown spots which indeed are in constant motion like a whirlwind.  

It was not until Jupiter cleared the way that the Sun hove back in view. Alalu winced: the dreaded Asteroid Belt now lurked. “The Hammered Bracelet ahead was beckoning, to demolish it was awaiting”, Alalu reflected with  surging anxiety. Would he survive the ordeal?

The Asteroid Belt was where Anunnaki astronauts came to die. Its gold-endowed boulders were a weapon unto themselves. For a time, no gold prospecting Nibiru team returned home: everybody perished in this unforgiving Iron Curtain of chain-linked rocks.   “Of rocks and boulders was it together hammered, like orphans with no mother,” relates Enki in Zechariah Sitchin’s The Lost Book of  Enki. “Surging back and forth, a bygone destiny they followed … Nibiru’s probing chariots like preying lions they devoured.

The precious gold needed for surviving they refused to dislodge.” (In our day, however, the asteroids are now well-spaced out and spaceships of all sizes can pass through the asteroid barricade with ease.)

The moment the “ferocious boulders” loomed, Alalu’s pilots  pressed a button on the spaceship’s control  panel and unleashed a blitz of “death-dealing missiles”. It worked: Alalu saw a clear path ahead of him through which he coursed at maximum speed. Soon he spied “a red-brown planet on its circuit” – Mars. Then “snow-hued Earth appeared, the seventh in the celestial count. Toward the planet Alalu set his course, to a destination most inviting.”   

Alalu was transfixed by Earth’s ineffable  beauty. It was white at the poles and blue and brown in between, its white clouds swirling alluringly. Without wasting time, he deployed a highly sophisticated device called The Beam That Penetrates to detect the presence of and calibrate gold deposits. He couldn’t believe the readings. “Gold, much gold, the beam has indicated,” he gushed aloud to his pilots.  Gold on Earth abounded both in its seas and somewhere in its crust, particularly in what he called the “dark-hued lands”, that is, the African region. But it was not in Africa that he landed; it was on a marshland of  today’s Iraq, on the edge of the  Persian Gulf. Alalu actually landed awkwardly, in a near-crash but without any danger to his party  or substantial damage to the rocket ship, such was his skill as a pilot.    

“WELCOME TO EARTH, I AM SERPENT… OH GOD!”

How long did Alalu take to reach Earth? Let us consider the question in relation to our own, unmanned space probes as rough benchmarks.

In 1977, NASA launched Voyager 1 to go and investigate the outer planets and beyond. Voyager 1 crossed Pluto’s orbit in 1989, that is, after 12 years. Another interplanetary space probe, New Horizons, was launched in 2006 and overflew Pluto in 2015, that is, in 9 years’ time.  This gives us an average of an Earth-to-Pluto journey of 10.5 years. But Alalu’s journey was inter-stellar, whereby the commonest mode of  propulsion is warp drive,  and therefore the best comparison should be another interstellar flight. What immediately comes to mind in this regard is the secret journey to and from planet Serpo, which was the subject of our Zeta Series.

Serpo is a planet in the Zeta Reticuli star system, about 40 light years away. It is inhabited by a technologically highly advanced but extremely humble serpentine race known as the Ebens.    In 1965, a team comprising of  12 Americans travelled to Serpo and returned in 1978. The journey back home lasted 7 months.  Since Sirius is only 8.7 light years away, Alalu would have taken just under two months to travel from there to Earth or even  quicker if the Sirians of the day had better flight technology than the Ebens presently have.  

Alalu was awed by the environment in which he had landed. It was rich with vegetation and fruit-bearing trees. He thought it felt like an orchard: half-a-million years ago, Iraq was not the desert it is today.   The lush vegetation, however, did not stagger him: it more or less matched the Wolfen planet’s own.

As he tried to cup some water from a pond, he heard a hissing sound and saw a scaly, slithering creature by the poolside. He was already armed with a weapon, which killed by death rays and this he directed at the creature. It died instantly. On examining it closely, he found that it had “a long body like a rope, without hands or feet; fierce eyes were in its small head, out of its mouth a long tongue was sticking”.   Apparently, this was the first time in his life Alalu had seen a snake. Was it the “orchard’s guardian” or the “water’s master”? he wondered to himself. Such cogitation clearly suggests that the Anunnaki too were a shade superstitious.  

Alalu’s killing of the snake on his first day on the planet had eternal ramifications:  from then on, man became the serpent’s worst enemy (snake bites account for 100,000 human deaths every year). Just how do you kill the first sign of life that welcomes you in a new environment? Of course Alalu did so in preemptive defence but he should have been more patient than rash.  The snake was as curious about him as he was about it: it probably had never seen something of his form.

“NIBIRU’S FATE IN MY HANDS”

Alalu was soon fetched by his most trusted confidante who he had long sent to Earth to study its flora and fauna. This was Alalim, his Master Geneticist. Following weeks of acclimatising to the planet, which was going through an Ice Age, Alalu and his team went to work immediately. They set about confirming the presence of gold in the marshlands using an instrument called a Tester.

“Into deeper waters he waded, the Tester into the waters he inserted,” narrates Enki. “Then Alalu’s heartbeat stopped: there is gold in the waters, the Tester was telling! … A cry of triumph from Alalu’s throat emanated: Nibiru’s fate in his hands now was!”

Rushing back into his rocket ship, he turned on a sophisticated orbit detector and communication device and immediately established a link with the Nasa of the Wolfen World in Sirius.

“On another world I am, the gold of salvation I have found,”     he ecstatically and magisterially announced. “The fate of Nibiru is in my hands. To my conditions you must give heed.”

To his listeners, Alalu’s announcement was as alarming as it was exhilarating. The news that he was on a planet in the planetary system of Buida did not exactly surprise King Anu. It was no secret that he had long dispatched Alalim, his fiercest loyalist, there and if  he wanted a veritable place of refuge, that was the most obvious direction to head. Indeed, the Sirian space centre’s engineers confirmed that Alalu’s words were indeed being beamed from well beyond Sirius.

Voice analysis experts also put paid to the thesis that the communicant was possibly an Alien simply playing mind games with the people of Sirius: it was Alalu all right. The displaced King was not only chilling out on snow-hued Earth; he had struck potentially incalculable finds of gold so he said – the precious metal that was so  desperately needed to repair Nibiru’s diminishing atmosphere.

King Anu wasted no time in attending to the matter. He travelled to Nibiru and after marathon consultations with his sons Enki and Enlil, the Jehovah/Yahweh of Old Testament fame, and other sages from across the social spectrum, he got the Nibiru space centre command to send the following message to Alalu forthwith according to Enki’s records:  “Anu, the King, to you his greetings sends; of your well-being to learn he is pleased … If gold for salvation you have indeed discovered, let Nibiru be saved.”

Anu’s words were of course more opportunistic than heartfelt: Alalu was a wanted man in Sirius. People wanted him to answer for his involvement in King Anan’s death. But all that was now a thing of the past. He had struck gold and was now the saviour of planet Nibiru. The stark reality was that it was him who now called the shots.   

Alalu’s reply was blunt and unequivocal.     “If your saviour I am to be, your lives to save, convene the princes to assembly, my ancestry declare supreme. Let the commanders make me their leader, bow to my command! Let the Council pronounce me King, on the throne Anu to replace!”

Alalu wanted to be King of Sirius once more, or at the very least the autonomous King of Nibiru since the ruler of Nibiru was effectively the ruler of the entire Solar System given the supremacy of  that planet. Although the Solar System was legally a property of  the broader Sirian-Orion Empire, Anu was in a bind: he just had to negotiate with Alalu. He and the Queen had decided that they had had enough of wars and in circumstances of conflict diplomacy should take precedence over warfare.  The union of the thrones of Sirius and Orion was intended to engender lasting peace not only between the two star systems but throughout the overarching empire.   

ENKI’S MOTION IS ADOPTED

Exactly how was Alalu to be handled? He had been ejected from the kingship of Sirius yes, but he was at the same time crucial to Nibiru’s survival. Should King Anu put the welfare of the Nibirians as a whole before the glory and trappings of monarchy and hearken to Alalu’s terms? Should he voluntarily step down to make way for the man who himself had extra-legally schemed his ascendancy to the throne? Some of his advisors actually suggested so, but the penultimate opinion was left to Enki and Enlil. Enlil as heir spoke first.

“If Tiamat’s (the original planet between Mars and Jupiter of which Earth and the asteroids were a part) gold he indeed has found, proof of that is needed. Is it for protecting our atmosphere sufficient? How through the Hammered Bracelet to Nibiru can it be brought?”

These concerns were promptly relayed to Alalu. Again Alalu responded timeously.     “Alalu the words’ merit pondered,” relates Enki. “To transmit his secrets he agreed. Of his journey and its perils in truth he an account gave. Of the Tester its crystal innards he removed, from the sample its crystal heart he took out. Into the Speaker he the crystals inserted, all the findings to transmit.”

When the data that Alalu had relayed to Nibiru was analysed, it was a cinch: evidence abounded that gold was indeed aplenty on Earth. Alalu was quick to follow up on this ratification with these words: “Now that proof has been delivered, declare me King, bow to my command!”    

Enlil had already spoken so it was now Enki’s turn. Revered for his seamless knowledge and surpassing wisdom, everybody was at maximum attention when the Sage of Nibiru, the Anunnaki’s greatest intellect, spoke and to the extent where his sibling rival Enlil must have made a wry face.

Enki first traced the history of Sirius  – how the last World War arose, how the peace came to be, how the planet was united under one King, the succession polemics, how Alalu deposed and caused the death of  King Anan, the deal that Alalu and Anu cut for the sake of Sirian peace (which entailed, inter alia, Enki wedding Alalu’s daughter Damkina, with the couple’s firstborn son to be designated next in line to the Sirian-Orion  throne after Enlil), and the ouster of Alalu by Anu. Stressing that the welfare of Nibirians took precedence over anything else, Enki who was also a surpassing mineralogist,    proposed two things: one, that Alalu be formally recognised as King of Earth; and two, that he travel to Earth to formally confirm Alalu into his new status on behalf   the Sirian-Orion monarch as well as to assess the gold situation on the planet and set about excavating it if there were viable deposits.   

“Let me be the one in this conflict unity to bring,” Enki thundered before the assemblage. “Let me Anu’s emissary to Alalu be, let me be the one Alalu’s discoveries to uphold! Let me in a chariot to Earth journey. On Earth, from the waters let me the precious gold obtain; to Nibiru back it will be sent. Let Alalu be King on Earth.”

The princes, the counsellors, the sages, and the commanders were wowed by Enki’s propositions: they all gave their nod. Only Enlil had reservations but there was nothing he could do as King Anu himself subscribed to them too. The message was accordingly transmitted to Alalu, who welcomed it in its entirety. Alalu particularly cooperated because the mediator was Enki, his son-in-law, and somebody who was renowned for his sense of justice and fairness and his pacifist bent overall.

Our lives are full of impatience

13th July 2022

Impatience lives within all of us; in some even more so than in others. When impatient some people will get fidgety, mumble and curse under their breath or even losing their tempers and being rude to others, whilst on the other hand others will be cool, calm and collected. Impatience comes in different packages and can stem from many sources.

We go through our daily lives with usual things like queuing at the bank, post office, government offices and other places of poor customer service that irk and irritate most of us. Unacceptable but somewhat understandable because of the insensitivity or inefficiency of others the rest have to suffer.

Taking it up to another level, specifically onto a ‘religious’ one, we come across many who show impatience with their lives because of their high expectations leading them to believe that their prayers are not being answered. For them Allah has a message: “Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, who say, when afflicted with calamity: ‘To God We belong, and to Him is our return’. They are those on whom (descend) blessings from their Lord” (2:155-157)

Sometimes we strongly pray for something and we get despaired when our prayers are ‘not answered’. But remember: ‘Allah is with those who patiently persevere’. (Quran 8:46). We have to realise and accept that the Lord is in complete control of everything – we cannot always get what we want because the Lord knows best what is good for us, accept the will of God. ‘But it may happen that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you.  And God knows and you do not know!’ (Quran 2:216)

A believer should rather ask Allah to bless him, make it easy for him and to grant him what is good in this world and in the hereafter. Be positive and look at the other blessings that you have instead. “Pray for help from God, and (wait) in patience and constancy: for the earth is God’s, to give as a heritage to such of His servants as He pleases; and the end is (best) for the righteous.” (Quran 7:128)

On the other hand, think about it, when things go wrong we go into a tailspin, start blaming ourselves, others and at the worst we begin to question why the Lord has not favoured us, yet we forget the countless other daily bounties that the Lord has blessed us with. ‘When trouble touches a man, he cries unto Us, in all postures, lying down on his side, or sitting, or standing. But when We have solved his trouble, he passes on his way as if he never had cried to Us….’ (Quran 10:12)

When the stresses of life hit us and we are faced with challenges, it is only then that some of us turn to our Lord in prayer. Unfortunately, it is human nature to forget our duty and allegiance to our Creator when things run smoothly in our lives. This is true because when the going is good we put it down to our own efforts. Nothing wrong with that but we need to realise that all that happens is through the Will of God.

‘…… when We bestow a favour upon him as from Ourselves, he says, “This has been given to me because of a certain knowledge (I have)!” Nay, but this is but a trial, but most of them understand not! (Quran 39:49)

We have become so obsessed with this material world that we have separated and compartmentalized our lives away from our faith because everything now revolves around moving up the economic ladder of life regardless of the cost to our souls.

Unfortunately many of us are impatient of the favours of our Lord we want things to happen now. We forget that the Almighty has a plan for each and every one of us, the good times, the bad times; the happy times, the sad times; the difficult times and the time of ease; and so it goes. From my school days, in physics class, I recall the saying that ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’ – I suppose so it is with life.

The question is; if we are so impatient about the ‘good’ in our life what about the bad? The Almighty asks us: ‘Do they then ask for Our penalty to be hastened on?’….yet there comes to them at length the punishment which they were promised’ (Quran 26: 204 – 206). Therefore we should balance our desires and pray for guidance, assistance and at the same time pray for peace of mind.

Impatience manifests itself into many people turning to those self-proclaimed ‘prophets’ – enough said. They promise you great wealth, worldly gains, winning of tenders and all those dazzling promises they make. Sadly many people are convinced that the ‘gospel of prosperity’ that these so-called prophets preach is the answer.

Remember you cannot buy God’s favour with money, so what are you paying that prophet for – the only answer is, for his own ‘profit’? I remind them to read the Bible: “Thy money perishes with thee because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money”. (Acts 8; 20)

Think of those daily blessings that we take for granted, and which we should be grateful for to our Lord, rather start counting your blessings before counting your ‘shortages in life’;

Before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your partner – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion.
Before you complain about life – Think of someone who died too young.
Before you complain about your children – Think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you complain about the small house you live in – Think of the people who don’t have homes.
Before complaining about the distance you to drive to work – Think of someone who walks the same distance but on foot.
And when you complain about your job – Think of the unemployed who wish they had any job.
Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning others – Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. Also when you are pointing at others – one finger is ‘at’ them – but at least three of your fingers are pointing ‘back’ at you.
When depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your face and thank GOD you’re alive and still around.

As the Quran repeatedly asks: ‘…..then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny’ (Surah 55)

Don’t be impatient, trust in your Lord, that trust will never be misplaced. ‘If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraws His help from you, who is there who can help you? In Allah let believers put their trust’ (Qur’an 3:160)
Let us think of our daily Blessings.

A Begrudged Child

21st June 2022

Princess Diana was at once a child of destiny and a victim of fate

It is no secret, General Atiku, that the British monarch constitutes one of the most moneyed families on this scandalously uneven planet of the perennial haves on the one hand and the goddamn havenots (such as you and me General) on the other hand.

In terms of residences alone, the House of Windsor lays claim to some 19 homes, some official, such as Buckingham Place and Windsor Castle, for instance, and the greater majority privately owned.
Arguably the most eminent of its private residences is Sandringham House at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England.

It is at this sprawling, 8,100-hectare estate the Queen spends two months each winter, at once commemorates her father King George VI’s death and her own accession to the throne, and more often than not celebrates Christmas. King George VI and his father King George V both drew their last breath here.

A 19th century Prince of Wales, Albert Edward (who would later become King Edward VII), acquired Sandringham in 1862 and it has remained royal property ever since. On the death of King George VI in February 1952, the property passed to his successor Queen Elizabeth II, the incumbent monarch, who assigned her husband Prince Phillip its management and upkeep. The estate also houses a parish, St. Mary Magdalene Church, which the outwardly religious Queen attends every Sunday.

Albert, General, had several additional properties built on the estate the year after he acquired it, one of which was the ten-bedroomed Park House. The house was built to accommodate the overflow of guests at Sandringham House. In the 1930s, King George V leased Park House to Maurice Roche, an Irishman and a bosom friend to his second son, who at the time was Duke of York but would in future be King George VI.

Roche was the 4th Baron Fermoy, a title in the Peerage of Ireland created by Queen Victoria way back in 1856. He and his wife Ruth had three children born at Park House, the second-born of whom was Frances Ruth Roche (futuristically Frances Shand Kydd), born in January 1936.

In 1956, Frances married John Spencer, a fellow noble, and following an “uneasy spell” at Althorp, the Spencer family estate of 500 years, the couple took up residence at Park House, which would be their home for the next 19 years. On July 1, 1961, Frances, then aged 25, and John, then aged 37, welcomed into the world their thirdborn child and youngest daughter, Diana Frances Spencer.

She would, on a positive note, become Her Royal Highness Princess Diana of Wales and the most famous and popular member of the Royal family. On the flip side of the coin, she would, as you well know General, become the most tragic member of the Royal family.

GIRL CHILD WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN A BOY

If there was one thought that constantly nagged at Diana as a youngster, General, it was the “guilt” of having been born anyway. Her parents first had two daughters in succession, namely Elizabeth Sarah, born in 1955, and Cynthia Jane, born in 1957. Johnnie was displeasured, if not downright incensed, that his wife seemed incapable of producing a male child – a heir – who he desperately needed as an aristocrat.

He even took the trouble of having his wife see a series of doctors in a bid to establish whatever deficiency she possessed in her genetic make-up and whether it was possible to correct it. At the time, General, it was not known that it is the man who determines a child’s sex and not the woman.

John’s prayers, if we can call them that General, were as much answered as they were unanswered. The longed-for male heir was born on January 12, 1960. Named John after his father, he was, as per the official version of things, practically stillborn, being so piteously deformed and gravely ill that he was dead in a matter of only ten hours, a development of which Earl Spencer would in future remark thus, albeit with tongue-in-cheek: “It was a dreadful time for my parents and probably the root of their divorce because I don’t think they ever got over it.”

Again as per the official version, General, John was gutted and hurriedly got into stride, this time around utterly positive that having had two daughters in succession, it would be two sons in succession. But nature, General, is seldom that predictable or orderly.

The next child was in fact a daughter, the now iconic Diana, for the third time around. Although John is recorded as having marvelled at what a “perfect physical specimen” her newly-born daughter was, he was forlorn beneath the façade, as a result of which Diana, who as a child did sense a lingering frustration on the part of her father on her account, would openly intuit that she was an unwelcome child, a “nuisance to have around”, thanks to her “failure” to be born a boy. From a very age thus, General, Diana had concluded that she was not well-fated and presciently so!

Although the heir, Charles Spencer (the future Earl Spencer) finally arrived on May 20, 1964, Diana perceived very little if any change in the way she was contemplated by her parents. In fact, both she and Charles could not desist from wondering whether had John lived, they would have been born at all. Seemingly, they came to be simply because their father was desperate for a heir and not necessarily that he wanted two more children.  With the birth of Charles, General, John called it a day as far as the process of procreation was concerned.

GODDESS OF THE HUNT

Why was Diana so named, General? Throughout her life, it was taken as an article of faith that her name derived from Lady Diana Spencer, a member of the Spencer clan who lived between 1710 and 1735, dying at a pitifully tender age of only 25. Certainly, the two namesakes turned out to have precious much in common as we shall unpack at a later stage, as if the latter-day Diana’s life was deliberately manoeuvred to more or less sync with the ancestral Diana.

It emerged, however, General, that the connection to an ancestor was actually secondary, or maybe incidental. The primary inspiration of the name was at long last disclosed by Earl Spencer on September 7, 1997, the day of Princess Diana’s burial. Delivering the elegantly crafted eulogy, Earl Spencer had this to say in relation to her naming: “It is a point to remember that of all the ironies about Diana, perhaps the greatest was this – a girl given the name of the ancient goddess of hunting was, in the end, the most hunted person of the modern age.”

It is significant, if not curious, General, that of John’s three daughters, only Diana was given the name of a goddess. Clearly, there must have been a special reason for this as aristocrats do not confer names casually: every name carries a metaphorical, symbolic, or intentional message. Typically, it honours an iconic personage or spirit or somebody lesser but who evokes memories anyway.

Elizabeth Sarah, for instance, was in all probability named after the Queen’s mother, whose decades-long inner circle included Diana’s paternal and maternal grandmothers, and an ancestor going by the name Sarah Jennings (1760-1744). Charles Spencer was named after the family’s greatest forbearer, King Charles 1 of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1625-1649. The ill-fated John was of course named after his father, who in turn was likely named after the 5th Earl Spencer, John Poyntz Spencer (1835-1910).

On occasion in occultic families, as the Spencer family latterly have been, a name, General, connotes a bad futuristic omen associated with its bearer and that was precisely the case with Diana.

THE FIRST DIANA

In its ancient rendering, the name Diana meant “The Heavenly One”, or goddess being a feminine style. The first Diana, General, was Inanna, an Anunnaki goddess whose Akkadian name was Ishtar – Esther in English. As you well know General, the Anunnaki are the Old Testament gods, Aliens from the planet Nibiru, the Solar System’s little-known planet which is seen only once in 3600 years, and who came to Earth 432,000 years ago as we comprehensively set down in the Earth Chronicles series.

The name Inanna is Sumerian, the Sumerians being the best-known civilisation of old who thrived around modern-day Iraq (called Sumer in ancient times) about 6000 years ago and who were indirectly governed by the Anunnaki. It was abbreviated from Nin-An-Ak, meaning “Lady of Heaven and Earth” or “Lady of the God of Heaven and Earth”.

She was so-called, General, not because she had particularly special godly qualities but owing to the fact that she was the earthly mistress of Anu, “Our Father Who Art In Heaven”, the King of the planet Nibiru, which humans of the day perceived as Heaven.

Anu was the father of Enlil, the principal Jehovah of the Bible. Enlil in turn had a second-born son called Nannar-Sin, the first Anunnaki to be born on Earth and who eventually became the Allah of Islam. It was Sin who fathered Inanna. Thus Inanna was Anu’s great-granddaughter but every time he visited Earth, Anu was sexually entertained by the stunningly beautiful Inanna, an act which in Anunnaki culture was not frowned upon.

Inanna was amongst other appellations known as the Goddess of Hunting (because of her penchant for, and skill in, waging war) and the Goddess of Love (in the sense of licentious love-making and not conventional moral love). Her other names in different parts of the world and across the ages were Irnin; Anunitu (Beloved of Anu); Aphrodite; Ashtoreth; Astarte; and Artemis, to mention only a few.

Although her celestial counterpart was the planet Venus, she was also loosely associated with the constellation Virgo as well as the moon. Once upon a time, when she was a virgin, Virgo was dedicated to her by her grandfather Jehovah-Enlil, who was Earth’s Chief Executive until circa 2024 BC. With regard to the moon, it primarily had to do with her twin brother Utu-Shamash, whose celestial counterpart was the sun: as such, Inanna’s inevitably had to be the moon. That, however, was only in a putative sense in that the operative moon god of the day was her father Sin.

Since moonlight effectively turns darkness into relative daylight, Inanna has in legends been referred to as Diana Lucifera, the latter term meaning “light-bringer”. Inanna’s association with the moon, General, partly explains why she was called the “Heavenly One” since the moon is a heavenly body, that is, a firmament-based body. It also explains why she was also known as Luna, which is Latin for moon.

A STEERED LIFE FOR GOOD OR ILL

Now, children of royals, aristocrats and other such members of high society, General, are invariably named before they are born. True, when a Prince William or Prince George comes along, the word that is put out into the public domain is that several names have been bandied about and the preferred one will “soon be announced”. That, General, is utter hogwash.

No prince, princess, or any other member of the nobility for that matter, is named at or sometime after their birth. Two names, a feminine and a masculine one, are already finalised whilst the child is in the womb, so that the name the child eventually goes by will depend on no other factor beside its gender.

Princess Diana, General, was named a full week after her birth, as if consultations of some sort with certain overarching figures had to be concluded first and foremost. Apparently, the broader outlines of her future first had to be secretly mapped out and charted in the manner of a child of destiny, though in her case she was as much a child of destiny as she was a doomed child. In her childhood reminiscences, Diana does hint at having been tipped to the effect that she was a special child and therefore had to scrupulously preserve herself.

“I always felt very different from somebody else, very detached,” she told her biographer Andrew Morton as per his 1992 book Diana Her True Story – In Her Own Words. “I knew I was going somewhere different but had no idea where. I said to my father when I was 13, ‘I know I am going to marry someone in the public eye’.” That, General, speaks volumes on the deliberately designed grooming she was subjected to in the formative years of her pilgrimage in life.

Since it was repeatedly drummed in her highly impressionable mind that there was something big in store for her along the way, Diana, General, remained chaste throughout her upbringing, if not an outright virgin to in all probability conform to the profile of the goddess Diana/Inanna before she exploded into a lecherous, loose-mannered nymphomaniac in her adult life as we underscored in the Earth Chronicles series. “By the time I got to the top of the school,” Diana said to Morton, “all my friends had boyfriends but not me because I knew somehow that I had to keep myself very tidy for whatever was coming my way.”

A DISPARAGED BIRTH?

Unusual for an aristocrat, General, Diana was born not in the rather apt precincts of a high-end hospital but within the banality of Park House itself. Whether hired midwives were on hand to help usher her into the world or it was only her dad, mum and closer womenfolk relations who did we can only speculate.

If for one reason or the other her parents were desirous that she be delivered at home, what secret rites did they perform as her mother’s waters broke, General? What incantations, if at all, did John utter over her? Was her birth an occultic one with all the attendant paraphernalia as opposed to a conventional one?

That Diana’s arrival was not a particularly cherished event, General, is evidenced by the fact that she was christened within the Sandringham Estate, at St. Mary Magdalene Church, with only well-to-do commoners in attendance, whereas the more prized child, her younger brother Charles, was christened at Westminster Abbey, in the presence of the Queen, who was designated as his principal godmother.

Anyhow, it was just as well, General, that it was in the hallowed environs of St. Mary Magdalene Church that Diana was committed to the “The Lord” as she was in a manner of speaking the Mary Magdalene of our day.

Challenges in our lives

21st June 2022

Allah Almighty reminds us: ‘On no soul does Allah place a burden greater than it can bear’ (Qur’an 2:286). Also: “Be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are the patient.” [Qur’an 8: 46].

Without fail, whether we like it or not there are times in our lives when many things seem to go wrong and as mere humans we go into a panic syndrome and are left wondering; why me? Why now? What have I done to deserve this? We are all tested with adversity, hard times and pain, but these tribulations are the Almighty’s way of transforming us and help us develop spiritually.

As mere humans we all have different reactions when something good or bad happens to us, and usually our reactions depend on the strength of our religious belief and of our righteous deeds and actions.

One person may receive blessings and goodness with gratitude and accepts the bad challenges and patches in his life with perseverance and endurance. This positive attitude brings him peace of mind and happiness, causing his grief, anxiety and misery to ease. Thus, this positivity brings a balance and contentment in his life.

On the other hand another person receives blessings and goodness with arrogance and transgression; his manners degenerate and become evil; he receives this goodness and utilizes it in an unthinking and uncaring manner; it does not give him any peace of mind as his mind is always distressed, nervous and restless.

Thus when faced with loss and difficulty, due to his arrogant nature, he begins to ask why me? What have I done to deserve this and he may even damn and curse others and thinks that they are plotting his downfall.

But every now and then we should stop to ponder over the blessings both apparent and hidden from The Almighty upon us, it is only then that we will realise that our Lord has granted us abundant blessings and protected us from a number of evils; this will certainly ease our grief and anxiety and bring about a measure of happiness and contentment.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Look to those who are lower than you (those who possess less than you) and do not look to those higher than you; this will make you appreciate the bounties of Allah upon you.”

Whether we are believers or disbelievers, virtuous or sinful, most of us are to a certain degree able to adapt and condition ourselves to face adversity and remain calm during these moments of challenge, uncertainty and upheaval.

When people receive affliction with fear, discontent, sorrow and despair; their life becomes miserable, they panic and become short tempered. Such people are unable to exercise patience remain restless, stressed and cannot find contentment that could make life easier for them.

On the other hand, due to a believer’s strong faith and reliance on Allah, it makes him persevere and he emerges stronger than others in difficult situations as this reduces his fear and anxiety and that ultimately makes matters easier for him. If he is afflicted with sickness, poverty or any other affliction, he is tranquil and content and has no desire for anything which has not been decreed for him.

‘If Allah touches you with affliction, none can remove it but He; if He touches you with happiness, He has power over all things’ (Qur’an 6: 17).Therefore the believer prays to his Lord: ‘Our Lord, condemn us not if we forget or fall into error…lay not on us a burden greater than which we have the strength to bear’ (Qur’an 2:286)

However, the one who is weak in faith will be just the opposite; he becomes anxious, nervous, confused and full of fear. The anxiety and paranoia will team up against him because this person does not have the faith that could enable him to persevere during tough times, he is less likely to handle the pressures and will be left in a somewhat troubled and depressed state of mind.

It is natural that as humans we are always fearful of losing the things that we have acquired; we desire and cherish them and we are anxious to acquire more, because many of us will never reach a point where we are satisfied with the material things in life.

When certain frightening, disturbing or unsettling events occur, like emergencies or accidents we find that a person with sound faith is calm, steadfast, and able to cope with the situation and handle the hardship he is going through; such a person has conditioned himself to face afflictions and this makes his heart stronger and more steadfast, which gives him a level of tranquillity.

This shows the difference between a person who has strong belief and acts accordingly, and another who is not at this level of faith. Due to the strong belief of the true believer he is content with whatever Allah Almighty has decreed,

This life is full of ups and downs and uncertainties, but the only certain thing is that from the moment we are born we will be tested with life’s challenges throughout our entire lives, up to and to the final certainty, death. ‘Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives, or the fruits of your toil, but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere’ (Qur’an2:155).

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “How wonderful is the matter of the believer! All of his matters are good and this is the case for nobody except a believer. If he is blessed with prosperity he thanks (Allah Almighty) and that is good for him; and if he is afflicted with adversity he is patient and perseveres and that is also good for him.”

During those challenging times you have three choices: either you can let them define you, let them destroy you; or you can let them strengthen you.
