Meld the mysterious into sensations of Mercury’s mystical cosmos,
Stand in awe at the creation of stars in the spiraling Orion Galaxy
Ascending and descending, the spirit knows the secrets of creation;
Like is known by like as the Creators are known by the creation.
I am Dumuzid, the shepherd, a god
Uniquely child of Heaven and of Earth
The consort of the goddess, Inanna
Fifth king of Bad-tibira, my re-birth.
Again the formless firmament did breathe
As fresh and salt of Chaos waters merged
Eternal Thought created All from One
Holy spiritual beings did emerge.
Anunnaki were council to the gods
An, Enlil, Ninhursag, the Queen
As Shepherd, I have lived in both the worlds
The Tablets of Destiny, I have seen.
From the point of Emanation, to Wisdom, to Understanding
Can we balance our higher knowledge with eternity’s concept?
Ezekiel’s chariot, from amber clouds turned as wheels within wheels.
Existing in the worlds of the Divine, Spirit, Psyche and Physical, WE.
Nammu gave An a son named, Enki
Nammu and Enki created man from clay
Adamu, first of the black-headed ones
“Let us make man in OUR image” they say.
Let’s create Ninti, lady of the rib.
Inana planted the Huluppu tree
Within the roots, a serpent made its nest
In the trunk the dark maid Lilith you’ll see.
“When the kingship of Heaven was lowered
The kingship was in Enki’s Eridu”
The beings of Heaven and Earth emerged
And Inana’s Houses of Heaven grew.
“And the sons of god saw…daughters of man
They bare children unto them…mighty men”
Dumuzid observed many temples built
To Inana, daughter of goddess, Suen.
Sumerian (ca. 6000BC – 3000BC)
In Southern Mesopotamia (Iraq) about 6000B.C. the sag-giga “the black-headed people” settled in “city-states”. There they developed year round agriculture, surplus food, and division of labor, temples and record keeping which led to writing. This was the “Cradle of Civilization”.
These are parts of an epic poem of the worlds empires and belief systems that I am working on.
