How Enki Became “The Devil”

Benson C Saili

THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER

 

And why Adam and Eve were expelled from the Middle East and repatriated to Africa

 

Ninmah and Ningishzidda were ushered into the presence of Enlil,  the principal Jehovah/Yahweh of the Old Testament, with the youthful Ningishzidda affecting a hang-dog expression whilst Ninmah typically put a brave face on the affair. An irate Enlil got to the point straight off.
 

“Can you two confirm that Enki did nothing else to the Lulus  other than give them the ability to reproduce, that he did not confer on them a  lifespan approximating ours?”

 

“Mm… my Lord,” Ningishzidda answered rather falteringly, “the prototypes were indeed given the ability to procreate,  but they were genetically allowed a life expectancy only a fraction ours: they can only live for 70,000 Earth years at most, which is nothing my Lord compared to the million Earth years we are capable of living.”

 

“You should understand,  my brother,” Ninmah weighed in,  “that what Enki did, what we did under his guidance, was purely in the interests of Nibiru and for the sake of the toiling Anunnaki miners. There simply was no other way to proliferate the human race.”

 

“That’s balderdash!” Enlil exploded. “I received not so much as a murmur of protestation from the Birth Mothers! They were dutifully resigned to the task!” Then again turning to the Sergeant-at-Arms, Enlil hollered,  “Get the Lulus in here.”Adam and Eve shuffled in, looking timid and woebegone. Adam was stark naked whereas Eve was clothed.

 

“Take off the lass’s clothes,” Enlil ordered the Sergeant-At-Arms. “The Lulu’s are an inferior species; they are not entitled to the dignity of clothing. How on Earth could they be equal to us when we created them?  My decree reverses completely their recognition, unilaterally, by Enki that they occupy the same station as we do in life’s pecking order.”   

 

Looking fixedly and contemptuously at the couple, Enlil said,  “Because of Enki, you guys now have become like us in that you will now be able to produce after your kind. But do you know what that entails Adam? Your wife  will experience excruciating labour pains! Child bearing could kill her! You guys have become like us because again owing to Enki, you now reason like grown humanoids.

 

You now have attained to such  intellectual maturity as  to know the difference between what is right and what is wrong, what is moral and what is amoral, meaning you are no longer the quasi-animal you used to be before Enki sophisticated you.

 

If that’s the case, then you should be capable of independent and responsible existence. I’m ordering your expulsion not only from Eridu but from the Edin as a whole: you will be taken back to the Abzu, from whence you originated,  to fend for yourselves.

 

I’m sure you will be able to provide for your wife and the children that may come along Adam through the gathering of wild fruits and the trapping of small game.  Off you go!”

 

Adam  and his wife looked imploringly at Enki before they made their exit. Then turning to his step brother, Enlil said:  “As for you Enki, you will remain under house arrest here at Eridu till I have ascertained from King Anu as to what sort of crime you should be charged for. Meanwhile, you are forbidden access to your shem so that you do not escape either to Mars or the Moon. 

 

To that effect, I’m ordering that Eridu be out of bounds and that it be tightly guarded. For I don’t want you to somehow spirit the Lulus on board and have them taken to Nibiru to acquire a lengthened lifespan. You are as slippery Enki as a snake. Now get out of here!”

 

It was Ningishzidda and Ninmah who were to travel with Adam and Eve back to the Abzu, or Africa. Before they got aboard the sky chamber, Ningishzidda provided the tear-sodden couple with coverings improvised from snake hides that hung on the walls of Enki’s mansion as decorative trophies.     

 

“GOD IS THE DEVIL AND THE DEVIL IS OUR MAKER”

 

The above account is a paraphrase of Sumerian accounts, which include titbits from The Lost Book of Enki, itself based on the same Sumerian records. In the Bible, the incident is recorded in GENESIS 3:14-24.  The  Genesis version verges on fiction.

 

In it, there is a literal serpent, when the serpent (NAHASH in the original Hebrew) was actually Enki as we have already gathered. Eve’s child-bearing travails are multiplied when at the time Eve had never experienced child birth at all. The Tree of Life is literalised when again  this stands for a spacecraft.  

 

Adam is condemned to tilling the land when at the time agriculture had not yet been introduced to mankind. Adam and Eve are also rendered subject to death, when death was inevitable even for the Anunnaki themselves.

 

The statement “thou art dust and to dust you shall return” exposes the ignorance of the Genesis writers regarding how mankind was fashioned by Enki.  Characterising mankind as dust was a derogative term, just like some Caucasian racial bigots characterise blacks as “apes”.

 

The Anunnaki used the term, first, to stress the fact that they were the creators of mankind and to drum into us the false notion that since they did so  by animating clay, we mankind were little more than a puff of dust. Since mankind was  so benighted at the time,   they took this claptrap as gospel truth. Tragically, even “enlightened”  mankind today propagates the same spurious message from church  pulpits! 

 

So what do we learn from the incident, which Christians describe as “The Fall”? We learn that Eden (the Edin) was the abode of several “gods”, not one. One god, Enki, wanted to uplift mankind morally and intellectually and to get them to produce after their kind.

 

Another god, Enlil, took very strong exception: he had Enki detained when he learnt of what the latter had done and had Adam and Eve expelled from the Edin. Yet another god, Ningishzidda, provided Adam with coverings after Enlil had declothed him.  

 

The transcendent God, the God of the Universe and All Dimensions  Jesus introduced to mankind, was not involved whatsoever. There was no snake at all and there were no trees and fruits of knowledge and eternal life: all these were simply metaphoric terms.

 

Perhaps the most paradoxical of lessons is that our god in a physical sense, Enki, is the one who we today call the Devil; whereas our oppressor, the one who was dead-set against the advancement of mankind, the one who literary regarded us as disposable pieces of trash,  is the one we now worship as our God – Enlil, the primary Jehovah/Yahweh of the Old Testament!  Says Earth chronicles researcher Michael Tellinger: “When I say that god is the Devil and the Devil is our maker, it should be seen in this context.”          

     How true!

ENKI IS RELEASED

 

Nibiru King Anu ordered Enlil to free Enki because he had not committed any statutory crime. At the same time, he made it clear that if Enki genetically accorded mankind the same longevity as the Anunnaki, there would be serious reprisals.  

 

Choking with exasperation, Enlil told Enki he was going to do his utmost to create a wedge between his (Enki) clan and Eve’s off spring (mankind). He was going to propagandise him to mankind as the “cosmic adversary”, what we today call “The Devil” or “The Evil One”.

 

Both Enki and his clan were going to be deliberately vilified as “evil snakes” who had to be avoided at all costs as they were cunning and deceptive and led people only to perdition.    Enlil also gave Enki to understand that  he was going to see to it that he never prospered in  whatever he set out to do. “Whatever you touch, I’ll make sure it turns to dust,” he raged. “Like a snake, you will crawl and never sprint”. We find intimations of this illwill in GENESIS 3:14-15.

 

It is important to note that at the time, the word “Devil” did not have the sinister connotation it carries today. Devil is derived from the Sumerian D’EA-BEL (Diabolos in Latin). This simply meant “The (D) Lord (BEL) of Life (Ea)”.

 

This was Enki’s title in recognition of his prestige as the Anunnaki’s past master of life sciences and his surpassing  mastery of DNA, the very essence of life (Ea, literally “House of Water”, can also denote mankind in general – Enki’s creation – since 70 percent of our bodily constitution is water. The Earth is also a House of Water in that it too is 71 percent water. 

 

Hence, D’Ea-Bel could also be rendered as “Earth Lord”, which precisely is the meaning of the name Enki).   D’Ea-Bel     turned into the slur “Evil One” after Enki cognitively uplifted Adam and Eve against the wishes of Enlil. The slur assumed heightened proportions when Enki’s firstborn son Marduk, who also was referred to as D’Ea-Bel, began to work at cross-purposes with the Enlilites’ manipulative agenda for mankind.

 

The reader should also take cognizance of the fact that of the Anunnaki contingent, Enki was the only one whose ancestors evolved from a snake species. Enki was originally from Orion whereas all the other Anunnaki were originally from Sirius. The beings of Sirius evolved from a Wolfen and Leonine (lion) creature, whereas the beings of Orion evolved from a serpentine ancestor.  

 

As such, by calling Enki a snake, Enlil was simply saying, “You act just like the creature you arose from”. But Enki was far from offended because he was indeed of snake heritage. In fact, at this very juncture, Enki decided he was at some point in the future going to form a “secret society”  to confide in some ranks of mankind their true origins and to  impart to them certain  spiritual, bio-chemical, and metaphysical secrets.

 

Enki thus was the founder of secret societies. The pioneer secret society he called The Brotherhood of the Snake. Tragically, this well-meaning clandestine fraternity was over time infiltrated and adulterated by Enlilites so that it came to be vilified as a Luciferian cabal whose aim was to promoted and perpetuate evil. This Earth, My Brother …

 

THE LULUS DUTIFULLY SERVE THE KINDLY ENKI

 

Back in East Africa at Bit Shiimti, Enki built a cottage house for Adam and Eve in the surrounding grove. There, he taught them daily and cared for them like a parent would do his own children.   Meanwhile, Ningishzidda kept a close watch on Eve. He was ecstatic when he saw that she had developed a bump: the Shurrupak operation had borne fruit! Nine months later, Ninmah midwived Eve’s first offspring – a set of fraternal twins.

Since the Adamites were fruitful as per Enki’s blessings, they multiplied by geometrical progression. Within about a years’ time, East Africa was teeming with them. Relates Enki in The Lost Book of Enki: “By the time Adamu and Tiamat had other sons and daughters, the first ones were by themselves procreating! Before one shar of Nibiru had passed, the Earthlings were proliferating. With understanding were the Primitive Workers endowed, of commandments they were comprehending.”

 

Initially, the Earthlings were not deployed to work in the underground gold mines. They served in Enki’s palaces and gardens in Zimbabwe and East Africa as cooks, cleaners, launders, and gardeners. Enki, who was the most considerate of the Anunnaki, did not abuse them: they worked according to a set time table and were well-looked after.

 

Since they were well treated, they were so devoted to duty and showed no disaffection of any kind however backbreaking the travails were. “To be with the Anunnaki they were eager, for food rations they toiled well, of heat and dust they did not complain, of backbreaking they did not grumble.”

 

JEHOVAH RAIDS THE ABZU

 

When Enlil got wind of the news that the Lulus were doing a swell of a job in the Abzu sprucing up Enki’s estates, he too pegged his claim. He sent word to Enki that some of the Lulus should be shipped to the Edin forthwith to serve him too.  Enki told him point-blank that he should go get stuffed.

 

Wasn’t it he, Enlil, who had unceremoniously expelled Adam and Eve from the same Edin? If he wanted Lulus to work for him, then he should go ahead and fashion his own as Enki’s Lulus were strictly helpers in the tasks of the Abzu only. Enki’s intransigence also stemmed from his fear that Enlil, a naturally austere being, was certain to treat the Lulus not as helpers but as slaves.

 

Enlil, however, was not one to take Enki’s rebuff lying down. He sat down with his eldest son Ninurta and plotted to jet down to the Abzu and grab the Lulus by force. In the event, Enlil, who was an aeronautic engineer by training, assembled aircraft for this purpose he called the ALANI (“Highward Vehicle”), which he mounted with a detachable  “Earth Spliter”, a huge power drill capable of pulverising anything however hard.  

 

This was reinforced by Ninurta’s IMDUGUD, a combat aerial vehicle that doubled as conscription machine. The Imdugud was also known as the GIRSU, the “Great Black Machine”, which explains why Ninurta’s other title was NINGIRSU, meaning “Prince of the Great Black Machine”.

 

The huge craft had a wing span of about 75 feet. In Sumerian drawings, it is depicted as a mechanically constructed "bird," with two wing surfaces supported by cross beams and  an undercarriage pierced with  a series of round openings that must have served as air intakes for the abductees. It was  actually the inspiration for Ninurta’s emblem, which was  a heroic lion-headed bird resting on two lions or sometimes on two bulls.

 

When Enki’s personal intelligence network tipped him as to what Enlil was up to, he decided to take precautionary steps. He fashioned  a bunker from a nearby mountain and stowed the Lulus in there (at the time, they did not number more than a few dozens).   But it seemed the Lulus  misconceived Enki.

 

They thought his aim was to kind of imprison them so that they were totally shut out from the  liberty of the world. By the time Enlil and Ninurta arrived to seek them out, they desperately wanted out. Thus when Enlil set the Splitter Weapon on the mountain bunker and bored a hole through it, the Lulus made a dash for this providential exit and hailed Enlil as their saviour.

 

But their glee was short-lived as almost instantly, Ninurta’s men, fifty in all, began to herd them into the bottom fuselage of the Imdugud. It occurred to the Lulus that they had jumped from the frying pan into the fire but it was too late.  Before long, the Imdugud was air-borne and the Lulus were headed for the Edin not to work for Enlil but to slave for him. A livid Enki cursed under his breath.

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.
