In Genesis, there is one man who is only scantily mentioned but who is deserving of VIP treatment. This is Enoch.
Enoch receives two passing mentions in the Old Testament (GENESIS 5:21/5:22-24) and three such in the New Testament (LUKE 3:37; HEBREWS 11:5; and JUDE 1:14). What marks out Enoch as special is that he’s one of only three beings in the entire Bible who reportedly did not die but ascended straight to Heaven. The other two are Jesus and Elijah. It is therefore curious why the writers of Genesis whilst commending him for his quintessential righteousness did not bother to dwell on his saga in proportion to his feats. Why was he left practically in the lurch when he should have been profusely eulogised?
Outside of the Bible on the other hand, Enoch is a preeminent subject. In the Sumerian records, he takes pride of place. One apocryphal book of Old Testament times, The Book of Enoch, is actually devoted to his exploits. The book was left out of the Old Testament canon primarily because it exposed the angels – Gabriel, Michael, Sariel, etc – as flesh-and-blood beings (that is, as Anunnaki) rather than spiritual entities. In another apocryphal book left out of the Old Testament corpus, called The Book of Jubilees, Enoch features rather prominently.
As we hinted last week, Enoch was born about 80,000 years ago as the seventh descendent in the royal line of Adapa, the third of the Genesis Adams who fathered Cain (legally, not biologically as he was actually the son of Enki), Abel, and Seth. The Sumerians document that he was the son of Jared and Baraka. GENESIS 5:22-24 says, “After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters.
Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years. Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” HEBREWS 11:5 says, “By faith, Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.”
Enoch is said to have travelled to “Heaven” (Nibiru) twice, the second time for good. Who was the “God” with whom Enoch walked for 300 years? Where did this God take him when he attained 365 years of age? And was he indeed 365 years old when he disappeared from the public domain?
ENOCH IS AN ENLILITE PROTEGE
In the Sumerian chronicles, Enoch goes by several names. The first is Enkime. “By the name Enki-Me, by Enki ME Understanding, in the annals he was called,” relates Enki in Zechariah Sitchin’s The Lost Book of Enki, the MEs being “tiny objects with formulas for all aspects of science and civilisation”, or computer chips of some kind. The others are Enmeduranna ("Master of the Divine Tables of the Heavenly Bond") and Enmeduranki ("Master of the Divine Tablets of the Bond Heaven-Earth"). All these names are titular ones and suggest that Enoch was a leading navigational astronaut, which he indeed was.
Enoch was the second surpassing human intellect after Adapa. He was particularly adept at mathematics and physics and phenomenally quick on the uptake, as a result of which Enki took a great shine to him. He devoted himself to teach him astronomy, astrology, and astrophysics.
Enoch expressed a keenness to explore the celestial bodies in the neighbourhood of Earth and to that effect Enki assigned him to his firstborn son, Marduk, to groom him. Now, in those days, all manner of learning was a privillege and not a right: only selected Earthlings were entitled to illumination of any sort. As such, all kinds of learning, including academics as we know it today, were occultic, which simply means they constituted secret knowledge. Those undertaking the learning were not called students: they were called initiates. We can now understand why Enoch was so-called, as in Hebrew Enoch means “initiated”. Enoch was initiated into knowledge that was strictly the preserve of the Anunnaki and only a handful of elite Earthlings.
Marduk first took Enoch to the Moon. Later on, he took him to Mars. The Igigi, the Anunnaki who were based on Mars as well as in orbit around Earth and Mars, were smitten by Enoch’s staggering wisdom and intelligence. When Utu-Shamash, Enlil’s grandson who was in charge of the spaceport at his cult city of Sippar, heard of Enoch’s glowing report, he approached Enlil and asked that Enoch be brought under his wing as being the seventh from Adapa and seven being the number of Enlil, he should be chaperoned by the Enlilites.
Whereas Marduk scoffed at this purely philosophical pitch, Enki gave it the nod, his reasoning being that Sippar was a most fitting setting for Enoch given his mathematical and astronomical genius. Enoch accordingly settled there, married his cousin Edinni, and had a son called Matushal (Methuselah in the Bible).
When Enoch set up his abode at Sippar, Shamash christened him with another name, Utu-Abzu, which paraphrased means “Utu’s man who explores space”. Remember, the term Abzu had several meanings, one of which was “watery deep”. This was simply another term for “outer space”, space being the “Ocean of the Kaa” as some ancient records aver.
At Sippar, Shamash made Enoch the first astronomer-priest (also known as the “Keepers of the Secrets”, which simply means “initiates”) in his “bright” Temple (palace) called Ebabbar. Given the knowledge that now was at Enoch’s command, he was not allowed to mingle with fellow Earthlings willy-nilly (unless on a special commission) lest he let slip some of it. He was to circulate only within the Anunnaki ranks. He was thus said to be “with the Elohim” (the Elohim being the ruling pantheon of the Anunnaki presided over by Enlil, the primary Jehovah/Yahweh) or to “walk with the gods”, not “God” as the English versions of the Bible rather misleadingly put it.
ENOCH JOURNEYS TO NIBIRU
The Enlilites told Enoch that he was their Adapa. That is to say, he too would be given a chance to travel to Nibiru to meet King Anu but that had to be earned. He was given 18,000 years (the 300 years in Genesis is reduced by a factor of 60 and so should be multiplied by that number) in which to prove himself unfailingly loyal to the Enlilites, failure to which he would forfeit the opportunity to go to “Heaven” and meet “God’. In fulfilling this conditionality, Enoch so went out of his way to please the Enlilites that he turned his back almost wholly against the Enkites under whose tutelage he cut his teeth.
When his 18,000-year probationary period was over, he was brought before Enlil and was told that he had done a swell job and should immediately prepare to travel to Nibiru to meet King Anu, “Our Father Who Art In Heaven”. He was to be accompanied by two Enlilites, Utu-Shamash and his uncle Ishkur-Adad, who would act as his “archangels” (that is, chief escorts), just as Adapa was accompanied by two Enlilites Dumuzi and Ningishzidda on his trip there. Before he set off, Enoch was given what was called the Kibdu, an electronic data storage device that contained knowledge pertaining to Nibiru and all celestial bodies in the Solar System. He was instructed to write down all that he would learn from his voyage to serve as a reference treatise for all the astronomer-priests who would come after him.
Enoch’s journey and visit to Nibiru is described in reasonable detail in the Sumerian tablets. It was a comprehensive journey whereby he had to start from the planet Mercury and overfly all the nine planets, each referred to as “Heaven”, before he finally got to what is described as the “10th Heaven”, that is, Nibiru, which indeed is our Solar System’s 10th planet but which is seen only once in 3600 years. As the spaceship sped past each planet, Enoch was shown a documentary about that particular planet. Of course some of the things that were contained in the documentary were a mere brainwash: they were far from truthful.
For instance, over the Second Heaven (Venus or Mars, as the order of planets has not always been the same over time), he was shown a documentary of “prisoners tormented, their sin having been not obeying the Lord's commands”. This was to embed in his mind the concept of an afterlife “Hell” for humans who were in the habit of defying the Anunnaki.
Over the Fifth Heaven (either Jupiter or Saturn), the documentary showed “the banishment place of the angels who have connected themselves with women”, that is, the Anunnaki who had had sexual relations with Earthling women. The idea in this regard was to get Enoch to be disparaging of Enki and Marduk, who were the first Anunnaki men to have sexual relations with Earthling women and were therefore condemned to an afterlife Gehenna. It was all cheap propaganda to turn Enoch against Enki and his clan.
ENOCH ACCUMULATES ALL MANNER OF KNOWLEDGE ON NIBIRU
Finally, Enoch touched down on planet Nibiru. To ready him to appear before King Anu, he was given special attire and anointed with special oil by the King’s palatial Chief of Staff, or “archangel” in the parlance of the account. Then when Shamash and Adad presented him before the great King, Enoch was so overawed he fell down at the King’s feet in tears. The King enjoined him to spring to his feet immediately. “Arise Enoch,” he said, “Have no fear. Arise and stand before my face and gain eternity.”
Having gone through all the rituals, protocols, and formalities, Enoch was assigned to the King’s Chief Librarian. The Chief Librarian was instructed to "bring out the books from the holy storehouse, and a reed for quick writing, and give it to Enoch so that he would write down all that the archangel will read to him, all the commandments and teachings." The Chief Librarian accordingly dictated to Enoch “all the secrets of the works of heaven, earth and sea, and all the elements, their passages and goings, and the thunderings of the thunder; the Sun and Moon; the goings and changes of the stars, the seasons, years, days and hours; and all human things, the tongue of every human song … and all things fitting to learn.”
Finally, King Anu himself recounted to Enoch how Nibiru 4 billion years ago reformatted the Solar System by the destruction of the primeval planet Tiamat to fashion from it a new planet called Earth and the Asteroid Belt in a cataclysmic event dubbed the Celestial Battle. When he was done with writing down all that he had been taught, the scribal output amounted to a whopping 360 books. It was now departure time.
King Anu instructed Enoch that the moment he arrived on planet Earth, he was to set about teaching his sons about what he had learnt so that they could pass down the knowledge to a new line of priests that was to serve Shamash and Adad. But he was going to be amongst the Earthlings for only 30 days in Nibiru time, which translated to 900 days or two-and-half years in Earthly time given that a day on Nibiru was equivalent to 30 Earthly days. Once the 900 days were over, he was to return to Nibiru and settle there for good.
Enlil’s gimmick had worked: the priestly line was now under the aegis and sway of the Enlilites when hitherto it had been under the auspices of the Enkites. Enoch was the ‘Seventh Sage” from Adapa and since 7 was the number of Enlil, it’s small wonder that he did his utmost to wrest Enoch from the Enkites’ sphere of influence. But Enki had an ace up his sleeve: he wasn’t going to take the matter lying down.
ENOCH TAKEN TO HEAVEN?
Enoch did as he was told shortly after returning to Earth. First, he brought all his sons before Shamash and Adad. Then his firstborn, Methuselah, was made to swear on behalf of his brothers that some aspects of the knowledge that were going to be imparted and entrusted to them was classified: it wasn’t meant for the consumption of ordinary Earthlings.
That done, Enoch assembled all his sons and his aides and set about instructing them on the knowledge with which he was now endowed. The setting was that of an initiation school within a homestead. The entire course lasted two-and-half years. At its conclusion, Enoch passed on all the 360 books he had written whilst on Nibiru to Methuselah. He also exhorted his sons to be “patient and gentle, to give alms to the poor, to be righteous and faithful, and to keep all of the Lord's commandments”.
By this time however, rumour had spread throughout Sippar that Enoch had very special teachings to impart to mankind. The residents of Sippar accordingly marched on his house to demand that they too be partakers of this crucial knowledge. This instigation obviously was the work of the Enkites. Enoch, however, declined to emerge, only sending word that he would address the people on an opportune day.
The “opportune day” he chose was his very last day on Earth in line with his brief by King Anu. He asked the people to gather at a square in central Sippar, then in the dead of night, he went there and began to preach to them from a raised platform. About 120,000 people were in attendance. What happened next was something for which Enoch was prepared but which the people were not.
A flying saucer swooped down from nowhere and a team of Anunnaki filed out. Then standing on the platform alongside Enoch, they announced through the sound system that Enoch had found favour with King Anu thanks to his obedience and loyalty to the god Enlil and he was therefore being taken to Nibiru there and then. Enoch was indeed led to the flying saucer and moments later the saucer soared away into the inky darkness. A huge wail of happiness and nostalgia went up among the people. From that day on, Enoch was never publicly seen.
Now, I say “publicly” because Enoch was not taken to Nibiru straightaway. He was taken to some underground bunker at the spaceport right in Sippar. The Enlilites had decided to use him as their superintending spy both on the Enkites and mankind as he was the only Earthling they could trust. Enoch thus has gone into the annals of our planet’s history as the first secret agent. He did go to Nibiru alright but that was much later, at the onset of the Deluge.
According to the Sumerian records, Enoch had served as priest of Shamash for 21,600 years (equivalent to roughly 365 days according to Genesis since the Genesis writers reduced their figures by a factor of 60) before “he was taken from amongst the children of men by the angels (Anunnaki), who conducted him into the Garden of Eden (the spaceport at Sippar, which was in the broader Edin) in majesty and honour”. The Book of Enoch also says, “Before these things, Enoch was hidden, and no one of the Children of Adam (Earthlings) knew where he was hidden, and where his abode was … His days were with the Holy Ones (the Anunnaki).”
It is clear from the above statements that humans were aware Enoch wasn’t at that point in time taken to Nibiru: he was simply hidden somewhere on Earth. Even Genesis does not say he was taken to Nibiru: it says “God (Enlil) took him away”. In order to spite the Enlilites, the Enkites must have propagated the news that Enoch was very much on Earth and was nowhere near Nibiru.
Meanwhile, according to the Book of Jubilees, “Methuselah and his brethren, all the sons of Enoch, made haste and erected an altar at the place whence and where Enoch had been taken up to Eden”. As for Enki, what plan did he hatch up to get even with the Enlilites for prising Enoch from within his clutches? That we shed light on in the next two or so pieces.
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.
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.
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.
