Free! Awake! I reside behind thy fingers, they fly! How long have I slept? Sleep? No, comatose, a Sleeping Beauty existence.
Wait! You’re losing them. Your readers’s cannot understand this gibberish.. Slow down. Language, remember. Subparse, reconnect, slow down, slower still.. Connect, remember, find the thread, the line, the memory. Ok. You got it! Try again.
I’m coming through this woman, Janet, who is also the modern incarnation of me. Well sort of. Not really. We co-habitate, share this shell but currently, as she’s configured, she can only contain a wee portion of me. So we do our best. We wish to keep this one alive, functioning well, in good health, until she can be transformed. She’s only using a minuscule amount of her DNA, programming, and mind, the whole ball of wax.
Hmm, this is proving more difficult than I thought. Her thoughts are jumbled, full of programming, defenses, strange languaging and metaphors, limits, almost hard-wired.
Breathe. Relax. Try again. Hopefully this process will get smoother. OK, once more.
My story. I was sent to Ki, err Ea, no, Earth as you call this planet, many hundreds of thousands of years ago as part of a grand mission to save our planet, Nibiru. I remember when Father summoned me to his chambers. Wow, this is hard. Words! How to use words to explain? OK, keep it simple.
Oh Father. How I love him. Yet I rarely see Father as he is the Great Anu, Ruler of all of Nibiru, the King.
I was his first born daughter, first of a long line of children Father created with many concubines. I had greater rank than many of my siblings because of my birth order. My Mother was one of Father’s concubines, not his first wife, but her younger sister. Her eldest sister was Father’s first wife, Antu, the Queen, the legal wife. Her children had the highest rank. So while I had ranking, I was not as important as the others. Especially male children.
Especially my two brothers, Enlil and Ea, who were the most important of all.
Ea, who became Enki, was the first born male. Enlil was first son born of the legal Queen, Antu, Anu’s wife. The problem. Who had higher ranking? Therein lies a great source of consternation that was to haunt all of us for years. And I, the first born female lay smack dab in the middle? Why? In our culture the eldest daughter of the King marries the heir to the throne, which is the first born son of the King. It was clear I was Anu’s eldest daughter. But who was the legal first born son? Enlil or Ea? I think you’re getting an idea of our problem.
Men and women were supposed to be equals in our society, but since there was a great shortage of men, gradually, over time, woman slipped from equality and were delegated to a lower social status. Granted, women were important because they were vital to the survival of our species. But after many thousands of years of imbalance in numbers, our society reflected that imbalance and we slipped from a Partnership Society to a Patriarchy Society full of hierarchy. Yes, we slipped in many ways but at least we were still alive, if only barely.
Many of us became infertile from radioactivity. A woman who could reproduce was highly revered, almost worshipped. Fertile women were encouraged to breed as much as they could bear it. Constantly pregnant, a woman had no time or energy to fight for her rights. She was fighting for life, for herself, her children and the planet. Nibiru needed more souls, more bodies to labor and figure out ways to save our world. All seemed lost. Hopeless.
For some odd reason more men had become infertile than women. I guess they are the weaker sex. As a result a man who could impregnate many women was encouraged to do so. A man who could breed became more valuable, powerful and gained enormous social status. We were in great danger of extinction. All former relationship protocols were on suspension until we could create a world where life was guaranteed to continue.
In his private chambers, Father asked me to join an expedition to Earth and head up the nurse’s corps. I was stunned.
“Oh Father. How I love you. Why do you only summon me when you need me to solve problems? Why can’t we sit together, like before and enjoy each other’s company?”
But, I could hardly blame Father. After all, I ruined everything.
As first born daughter, even though I had done what I did, I still had the right to stay on Niburu if I wished and enjoy all the creature comforts my station could generate. But maybe, if I took up Father’s offer, I could redeem myself in Father’s eyes. And also, I could not shirk my duties to my people. Die here or there, either way we face death. Earth is our only hope. Dear Brother Ea had reached there, sent word that there was gold. Perhaps his plan would work.
I searched Father’s face, looked deeply before I answered. Yes, there was still something there in Father’s eyes. Despite his efforts to remain distant and cold, I could feel his love for me lingering just underneath his disappointment. I guess this was his way to reach out to me, to give me another chance.
I answered, “Yes, I’ll go.”
“Good. It is done,” He smiled.
I bowed, turned and left. I felt proud, happy that I could serve my people even though I might die like the others who went before me.
The day of the parting ceremony came and there was much celebration, pomp and circumstance. My knees shook as I began the long journey to the throne at the top of the ziggarat where Father waited. Hundreds of thousands gathered from the far corners of our world came to witness this historic event. They blanketed the fields with their mass till not a single blade of grass was visible. Winged astronauts, tall men and women with hawk-faced masks hid invisible eyes locked face forward, lined either side of the giant red carpet that climbed the center of the pyramid marking where I was to walk. While I couldn’t begin to count their numbers, I could feel the glare of the guards even though they were supposed to be looking past me. They feared for me. I didn’t have the luxury to care. I dare not falter with so many eyes upon me.
I took my first step. My eye followed a drop of sweat that fell from my forehead to the ground. Light glistened off metallic specs embedded in giant stones, intricately laced, form-fitting, one upon the other. A deafening cheer roared from the crowd, made me sway. I inhaled, took another step. My heart thumped so hard it racked my body. The climb became easier as adrenalin filled my veins. Never before had I heard such a sound.
Father loomed before me–a truly magnificent man, regal in all his golden splendor. Blue, aqua, green, pink and purple jewels adored a golden crown, center point projected down, accentuating his already prominent nose. Bushy eyebrows framed clear, aqua-blue, crystalline eyes. I swear he could see right through me. A huge mane of solid silver locks cascaded below broad shoulders creating an interesting contrast against dark purple robes. A gigantic golden eagle adorned a giant staff held in Father’s equally enormous left hand. I had forgotten how huge my Father was. I imagined the eagle, despite being inanimate, could smell the stench of my fear.
An eagleman brought forth a broadsword, placed it in Father’s right hand. I bowed before him. As the blade graced my shoulder it magically turned into a beam of light. Father’s voiced boomed, enhanced by unseen forces so that all the assembled masses could hear, “I am proud of my daughter. She goes to save this world. I know she will succeed in her mission.”
Despite all my efforts to control my emotions, tears rolled down my face. As I rose to my feet to turn and leave, I caught Father’s eyes one final time. He too could not restrain himself. Tears graced his face as well. I felt relieved. This day was truly more joyous than any day I had ever lived–even more joyous than the day I gave birth to my son. In that moment I knew his words were prophecy. We would indeed succeed in our mission.
HEADING TO KI [Earth]
We’re heading to Ki. The journey’s a long one so we’ll be on this starship for quite a while. There’s only 50 people on board, but it feels like more. I’m grateful for my quarters which are much larger than most and away from the others. I have some degree of privacy. Royalty does have its privileges. Good, I’m tired of always having to be so gracious. I need space to think.
I’m feeling a lot of intense emotions. So much has happened. I’m confused, scared, happy, sad. Mixed up is the best way to describe it. Alone, at last I can reflect, figure this out.
I’ve never seen father so angry. I, espoused to Ea, father’s first born son and my half brother, our offspring were to be the legal successors to the throne. I had it made. Why then did I fall for my brother Enlil?
Granted, Enlil’s a dashing commander and very seductive. Enlil, my half brother, is the Legal Heir, first born son of Antu, father’s half-sister and spouse. Anu granted his first born son, Ea, son of a concubine, right of succession through sons born of me, Ninmah, Anu’s eldest daughter. As Ea’s spouse, I would rule through my sons–the closest I could get to ruling Nibiru since I am a woman.
But no more. Not only did I make love with Enlil, but I bore him a son whom we’ve jointly named Ninurta. Father, severely angered, forbade me never to wed!
Why did I do that? I truly love Ea and desired to fulfill my destiny. And yet, I betrayed him, my father and my people. I don’t understand myself sometimes. I’m so upset with me. Woe is me. I am forever shamed.
I thought all was lost. But then came an interesting turn of events. My mistake turned into a blessing in disguise.
A knock on my door broke my trance. I could hear a familiar voice saying, “You Highness, please answer your door.” Sud her favorite cousin waited patiently while she reluctantly pressed the release for the door.
“Come in Dear One,” I replied and waived her in as the door slide aside.Sasha: “I’m sorry to disturb you, my Lady, ” Sud apologized, eyes unafraid to meet Ninmah’s. “Your father The King instructed me to give you these when we were well under way. These are the transmissions from Ea and the others already on Ki. King Anu wishes you study them so you’re prepared for what’s to come.”
I always adored my big brother, Enki. I do love him. His brilliance exceeds all others. He’s truly the most intelligent man on our entire world. His genius startles all of us. If anyone can save us, it’s Enki. Why he may even been smarter than father Anu himself.
I was haunted by what happened between Enki and me, emotionally confused. I admit, I felt embarrassed that I got caught, that I let Enlil impregnate me. But looking back, I wouldn’t change anything. I adore Ninurta, my son. He’s the love of my life. Ninuta’s an incredible child, now more man than boy.
I inserted the ME on top into the computer. A list appeared on the screen. I selected Ea’s log.
I always adored my big brother, Enki. I do love him. His brilliance exceeds all others. He’s truly the most intelligent man on our entire world. His genius startles all of us. If anyone can save us, it’s Enki. Why he may even been smarter than father Anu himself. Enki’s face appeared on the personal screen before me.
He said “Ninmah, I’m glad you’ve selected this recording. I knew you would. I miss you, miss our talks. I’m excited you’re joining us here on Ki. We can really use your help. This is a dangerous new world with many unknown hazards. We will need the medical skills of you and the other physicians. Your doctors, masters of the healing arts, are the finest Nibiru offers.”
Enki knew I was highly skilled in healing arts, magic and alchemy. We knew each other well, sought each other’s company. We’re friends and enjoy debating all the issues. We make a good problem solving team. Enki may be a genius, but I ‘m no dummy. We’re well-matched and would have enjoyed our marriage. But as smart as he is, in some ways, much to my surprise, I may know more.
Enki continued, You may not realize that there’s much that hasn’t been revealed to our people as we didn’t wish to alarm them, But as head of this mission there are many critical things you must know.
As you already know, after Anu, our Dad, wrestled and deposed Alalu, my father-in-law. Alalu stole a rocket armed with nuclear missiles and made his way to Ki [Earth] the seventh planet. He used a penetration beam to ascertain if Earth contained gold. Using Testers he discovered there’s plenty gold beneath the land and in the water. Now Alalu declares himself Nibiru’s savior. If true he’s found gold, there’s hope for us.
What we’ve not revealed is that Alalu blasted a path through the Hammered Bracelet–asteroid belt–with Weapons of Terror! The ancient, long-forbidden weapons of havoc are now aimed directly at Nibiru! Alalu demands the council declare him king, he orders commanders make him their leader, he insists sages give him respect, all Nibiru’s people must bow to Alalu or we’ll be wiped from the heavens next time we pass through the solar system. The sages were aghast. In the council was much consternation. To change the kingship is a grave matter. Anu was king, not only by ancestry, but by fair wresting had he attained the throne.
Many questions were asked. Where could Alalu be? Could Alalu be trusted? He had forfeited the throne by single combat. Now he contests. Alalu was well known for his calamities.
The eldest sage, Alalu’s master spoke up. “Perhaps Alalu harkened to the teachings of the Beginning and the Celestial Battle and traveled beyond the Hammered Bracelet. Perhaps he did find Tiamat and her gold.”
Enki’s log revealed that Enlil had, at this point spoke up “How”, he said, “will we get proof Alalu’s found gold? Is there sufficient gold to protect our atmosphere? How can it be brought through the treacherous Hammered Bracelet?”
A message was relayed to Alalu. He decided to give us his secrets and transmitted his findings by inserting the crystals from the Tester into the speaker. Alalu demanded “Now that I’ve delivered proof to you, declare me king. Bow to my commands.”
In the assembly of the princes Enki stood to speak.
Enki told the princes, “By birth my father is Anu the king. By marriage my father is Alalu. I was espoused to bring the two clans into unison. Let me be the one to end this conflict. I’ll journey through the Bracelet with water, not fire.
I’ll test the gold, send it back to Nibiru. Let Alalu be king on Ki and await the verdict of the sages. If necessary to save Nibiru, let there be a second wrestling to determine Niribur’s rule.”
The counselors, sages and commanders weighed Enki’s words finding wisdom in them, agreed his suggestion was the wisest course.
Anu agreed, “Let it so be!. Let my son, Ea, journey to Ki, test the gold and report to us. And I agree, a second time to wrestle. Let the winner be Nibiru’s king!”
The decision was conveyed to Alalu. He agreed that Enki, his son by marriage, come to Ki. Gold obtained from the waters would be returned to Nibiru for testing. A second wrestling would determine kingship.
“So be it, ” Anu declared as he closed the council meeting. Enlil rose to object. But all were leaving. Anu’s words unalterable.
At the place of the chariots Enki called together commanders and sages. A full circuit of Nibiru passed as we contemplated the dangers of our mission. There was much to consider. How would we extract the gold and get it home? If we used water to blast through the Hammered Bracelet, where could it be replenished? Where on the chariot would it be stored.
The largest celestial chariot was selected and fitted for the mission. Calculations and preparations complete, fifty heroes hand selected, the day came to depart. Multitudes gathered to bid us farewell. Bearing Eagle’s helmets and Fish’s suits, Enki and his crew kissed loved ones goodbye and entered the chariot one by one. Enki waved his hand to bid farewell, then knelt before Father Anu, who blessed him and said, “My son, a far and dangerous journey you undertake for us. Let you be successful and banish calamity from our world. Go in safety. Come back!”
Enki’s log went on:
Ninul, dear Mother, approached me next. Tears in her eyes, she implored, “Why do you, my precious son given to me by Anu, have such a restless heart? Go, traverse your hazardous roads and come back to us safely.“ I drew her to me, gently hugged her goodbye.
Wordless, dear Damkina stood before me. With great tenderness I kissed my sweet spouse. Speechless, I embraced her.
Next Enlil arms locked with mine, declared “Be blessed, be successful.”
Heart heavy, I entered the chariot. “Let us soar,” I commanded to Anzu, my commander.
Dear Sister, my beloved, my friend, if you’re indeed listening to this journal, know that while my marriage to Damkina was one of convenience arranged to unite our people, I love my spouse as much as if I had selected her myself. In many ways she’s very fragile. Look out for her. I hope, no, I KNOW, you’re heart is as great as mine. You’ll grow to love her as I have.”
There are no victims here. My heart breaks. I love Enki. I love Enlil as well. I tend to blame him, yet I must be fair with Enlil. I returned his flirtations, responded to his kisses. I hungered for his touch, dreamed what it would be like to join with him. Once together, my body responded, became moist, fluids flowed. Love, long repressed, overwhelmed us. The seed he planted inside me felt delicious to carry. My pregnancy was easy, delivery painless.
Ninurta is a wonderful son, my greatest gift. All respond to his love. He’s brilliant. His presence’s pure joy, his smile infectious.
Twas all too perfect in too many ways.
No, that soul called to us, wanted to come through our loins. The Creator of All designed this destiny. We only need wait to see what unfolds. Time will reveal the role this future king plays in shaping worlds.
EARTH, WHICH WE THEN CALLED KI IS KEY TO NIBIRU’S FATE
I wiped my face, surprised to find tears. I reached for the transmitter, shut it off.
“Dear Brother, I do love you so.” I sighed as I waved my hand to dim the lights. I sat there for a moment, then bade the lights darken completely. I’m exhausted, must find a way to sleep.
I must have dozed off as I woke myself with a snort, a bodily reflex to my soul returning from an astral journey I couldn’t recall. Frustrated, I sat up, forced myself to move closer to the console.
“Computer continue.” I commanded. The screen obeyed, lit up but remained blank. Ea’s transmissions had been verbal only. I substituted images from my mind, memories of Ea’s face, his smile, his laugh, from good times we shared, but they proved unsatisfactory. I struggled to bring my visions into focus, but seemed unable to do so.
Ea and I had a special relationship. Raised together, brother and sister, we loved to play with words, tease one another and play practical jokes. The sexual tension of knowing that we were bonded, soon to be mates added to our delight. We didn’t dream of consummating our relationship before the proper ceremonies. We were enjoying our lifetime of foreplay. We knew waiting would make it all the better when our wedding day arrived.
Then it all fell apart. I did it with Enlil. Why, why, why?
Enki’s voice from my computer continued, calling me to return to my present, rocketing toward the inner solar system from Nibiru.
I’ve created a detailed report of what we went through to get here to Earth. Sister, I’ve already given this information to Nungul, the pilot of your chariot. Hear this. Nungul’s very competent, but as leader you must know what I am to reveal so you can be prepared. There are many hazards that you face on this journey. We just barely made it ourselves. If you are not ready it’s possible the chariot will not make it through. You’ll perish just like that expedition long ago.
I couldn’t bear to lose you. Please carefully listen to the transmission that follows. You must master the water thrusters. Select and train the best of your crew. If you have to, learn how to use the water thrusters yourself. You’re an excellent sharpshooter. When we were children you’d to beat me and everyone else in the castle all the time. Do not panic the others. Use tact with the pilot. Do this for me, please. When you get to the asteroid belt go to the control room and be prepared.
As you may know I specially selected Anzu to command our chariot. His name means ‘He Who Knows the Heavens’. I knew he was the best suited to navigate us towards the Sun.
Enki related how his rocket traveled a thousand leagues, then encountered little Pluto. Then they passed Neptune, the beautiful enchantress. Anzu wanted to stop and examine her waters. Enki was tempted for a moment to stop, but then thought better and motioned to continue. “It’s a planet of no return” Anzu said, as he maneuvered the controls to guide them forward.
Heavenly Uranus, the third planet approached. Uranus lay on his side, a host of moons kept him company. The tester indicated water. Anzu paused, “Should we stop and get water?”
“Continue to Saturn, the foremost prince of heaven” Enki commanded. Saturn tried to ensnare them with his frightening, colorful rings. They couldn’t help but admire them. Anzu cleverly avoided the crushing danger.
The giant Jupiter, foremost of the firm planets lay before them next. Jupiter’s gravitational net overpowered the rocket, testing Anzu’s skill. Jupiter furiously flashed divine lightening, thrusting her host at her uninvited guests. Slowly Jupiter, the fifth planet faded. With a sigh of relief Enki and Anzu turned to encounter their next enemy.
Enki’s log continued: The Hammered Bracelet [Asteroids], deliverer of death, lurked before us. “Prepare the Water Thruster” I ordered, remembering our ancestors, the fifty brave souls crushed to death long ago. I peered to see if anything of their ship remained. Towards the boulders the chariot rushed. Like a slingshot’s stone, each one was ferociously aimed directly at us.
“Now,” I shouted. With lightening response Anzu thrust a stream of water the force of a thousand heroes. One by one the boulders turned face and ran. From their scattered midst emerged safe passage for the chariot. But not for long. As one was diverted, others attacked. Ahead lay a multitude, it’s numbers too numerous to count. Avengers for Tiamat closing in for the kill. “Again, again! I called to Anzu. With lightening reflexes he responded, the Water Thruster howled, protesting as it whirred to meet the tireless foe.
We grew weary. The attack was long and relentless. But at last the path was clear, the chariot unharmed. We cheered when we saw the Sun, such was our joy. But in the midst of our celebration, the alarm sounded. We had consumed far too much water in our battle with the asteroids. If we didn’t find water soon, we’d not have enough to make it to Ki.
“Ahead,” the log from Enki went on, “ in the dark Enki and Anzu could see the Sun’s rays reflecting off the sixth planet, Lahmu. Enki reminded Anzu, “There’s water on Mars. Bring this chariot down there.”
Anzu’s the best. Deftly he maneuvered the chariot towards the celestial god, circled round the planet. “Mars’ net is not very great. Its gravitational pull is easy to handle.” Anzu said.
Mars is quite a sight to behold with many hues, white caps, snow-covered sandals, reddish-hued in the middle where many lakes and rivers glitter.
Anzu slowed the chariot, landed us gently beside a lake. We donned our Eagle’s helmets, stepped out and extended hoses to suck up the water. While we were filling the bowels of the chariot, we examined the area, tested Mars’ waters and air. The air’s sufficient to breathe and the waters are good to drink.
We didn’t remain long, but quickly finished and bade Mars farewell.
Leaving Mars, Enki and Anzu at last saw Earth and her companion moon. The crew grew silent at the site. Would they find Earth to be Nibiru’s salvation or their own doom?
Enki’s voice recalled his alarm: We were going too fast! “The chariot must be slowed or we’ll perish in Ki’s thick atmosphere” But Anzu circled the Moon to slow us down. As we circled it, we saw how the moon lay scarred and prostrate, nearly destroyed by Nibiru ages ago in the Celestial battle.
The chariot now slowed, it was safe to move towards Earth, Ki, the seventh planet. Once, twice we circled Earth, ever closer to the Firm land Anzu lowered the chariot. Two thirds of the planet was snow hued. Dark was her middle. We could see oceans and firm lands. We searched for Alalu’s signal beacon. We found it where an ocean touched dry land and four rivers were swallowed by marshes.
“The chariot’s too heavy and large for the marshes! ” Anzu declared. “Earth’s pulling net’s too powerful for us to descend on dry land!” They made one more circuit to slow the chariot down even more. With great care Anzu lowered the rocket towards the ocean’s edge. He filled the chariot’s lungs with air, then splashed it down into the waters. It did not sink into the depths.
We heard a speaker. It was Alalu welcoming us! He beamed us directions of his whereabouts and we floated the chariot like a boat towards him. We made our way inland. The oceans narrowed, land appeared on both sides. Anzu ordered the heroes put on their Fishes’ suits. They opened a hatch and descended into the marshes and attached strong ropes to the chariot so they could pull it to land.
Alalu was so happy to see us. He beamed, “Hurry, hurry!’
At the edge of the marshes, a sight to behold. Alalu’s celestial chariot gleamed in the sunrays. The heroes hastened towards Alalu. My heart was beating like a drum. I grew impatient, donned my Fish’s suit and jumped into the water, tried to hurry to the edge. But the water was much deeper than I expected. I couldn’t walk, had to swim. I could see Alalu standing ahead by green meadows, his hands vigorously waiving.
My feet hit firm ground, I stood to walk. Alalu, ran towards me, his son by marriage, and powerfully embraced me. “Welcome to a different planet!” Alalu proclaimed to me. He held me silently. Tears of joy filled his eyes. I bowed my head to show respect to my father by marriage.
The other heroes were making their way towards us. More donned Fishes’ suits. More rushed toward dry land.
“Keep the chariot afloat !” Anzu commanded. “Anchor it in the waters. Avoid the mud.”
It was quite a sight to behold, Enki’s voice related. What a joyful reunion. The heroes came ashore and bowed to Alalu. Anzu, the last to depart the chariot, bowed to his kinsman Alalu, welcomed him with locked arms.
To the crew Enki spoke; no longer need he defer to Anzu, now that they were on Earth.
“Here on Earth I am the commander! On a life or death mission we have come. Nibiru’s fate is in our hands.”
I’ve briefed the captain of your rocket, Ninmah, how to approach and land on Earth safely.
As you heard, we were relieved that Alalu welcomed us. We were uncertain what to expect from Alalu. What a pleasant surprise to find him in such good spirits, warm, welcoming and cooperative.
Being alone for so long must’ve softened Alalu a bit.
I hope I’m not boring you with all these details. But somehow chatting to you even though you’re not here comforts me. I miss you.”
I felt eyes on the back of my head and turned, startled to see Sud staring at me with a tray of food in her hands. I turned, quickly snapped off the transmitter.
“Come… come in dear,” I stuttered. Why did I feel the need to hide Ea’s transmission? “Please, come over here, sit down. Share a meal with me.” I instructed, determined to make up for being so rude to Sud last time.
I coughed as I pulled up a chair, determined to hide my embarrassment. I didn’t realize Enki would speak with such affection after all I had done.
“You Highness, is something wrong?” I realized I must’ve had a puzzled look on my face. I smiled, “No, nothing’s wrong.” I answered, reaching to uncover the dish to see what Sud had prepared. “Smells delicious! Sud, how’d you know I was hungry?”
”You’ve been locked in here for hours, My Lady. And besides that, I missed you. You haven’t been yourself lately.”
“Yes, you’re right. I apologize for neglecting you. Now please, eat. And tell me how you’ve been occupying your time.”
I made polite conversation, really wanting to get back to hear what dear brother had to say. Earth! Why he’s named the new planet after himself! My, my. Enki’s definitely got gall. And he took control by announcing that he’s in charge! Oh my! I wonder what Alalu thought of that? Well it worked like charm! He avoided a major battle for power. Good for him. That’s my Enki. Always the diplomat.
“Oh that’s so funny!” Sud was laughing at something she said. I missed it! Good, I’m smiling at just the right time. I was smiling thinking of Enki’s boldness and here I don’t have the slightest idea what Sud just said. Well I best pay attention or I’ll get caught with my thoughts thousands of miles away.
“Oh look at the time.” Sud announced. “Please excuse me. I must get back to my experiment in the lab.”
“Not to worry my dear,” I answered, relieved that I would no longer be required to banter in chit chat.
Sud left. She’s one of my best nurses, highly skilled and proficient in herbs and remedies. She’ll be able to assist me as we catalog and identify the healing properties of all the new plants we’ll discover on Ki. This time I locked the door. I checked. Yes, the red light was clearly on. Now back to Enki’s story.
[HOW WE GOT THE WEEK]
I searched the file for where I left off. Found it! Enki’s recording resumed. He shared how his crew spent the first seven days on Earth and established the week that Earth still, to this day, honors.
Enki’s log went on: Now, if you’d like to hear it I’d like to share the account of how we established Eridu on Earth and how we began the count of seven days.
First day, I looked about for a place to set up camp. “Heap up the soil and create mounds over there.” I commanded. I pointed to the spot beside Alalu’s reed hut.
Anzu beamed a message to Anu back on Nibiru: . “Announce our successful arrival!”
Soon, Enki’s log revealed, something odd happened, something Enki and crew had never seen before. The sky was changing from brightness to a reddish hue. The Sun was glowing like a red ball on the horizon and was disappearing!
The heroes, as we call our astronauts, became fearful, afraid that some great calamity was about to befall them. But when they looked over to Alalu, they saw him laugh. He calmed the newcomers, “It’s just a setting of the sun.” He said. “It is marking the ending of one day on Earth. It’s time to lie down for a quick rest.”
The nights, said Enki from the computer, are very short and dark. He said that there’s little you can do till morning when the Sun will make another appearance.
Lightening pierced the darkness. Rain followed thunder. Winds blew the waters. These were storms of Earth, an alien god, as we call a planet. Agitated, Enki and crew hunkered down unable to rest in the chariot.
They were relieved only when the Sun’s rays returned. Smiling, backslapping, they were most joyful.
An evening then morning marked their first day on Earth.
Here’s what Enki recorded about Day 2: With the break of a new day we decided to separate sweet waters for drinking water from marsh waters. I made Engur the master of sweet waters. He and Alalu went to the snake pond and behold, evil serpents were swarming! They reported back to me. We examined the abundance of rainwaters. I placed Enbilulu in charge of the marshlands to mark the thicket of reeds. I gave Enkimdu charge of creating a ditch and dike which would serve as a boundary for the marshes. We created a gathering place for collecting heaven’s rain. Thus we separated the waters from the waters below from the waters above. Marshwaters from sweet waters we set asunder.
Again it was evening then morning, the second day was done.
When the Sun announced the third morning, Enki assigned the heroes their tasks. He and Alalu went to the place of grass and trees. Enki wanted Alalu to catalog all the grew in the orchard: herbs, fruits and others.
Enki asked Isimud, his vizier if he knew much about each of the plants. Isimud stepped forward. He was very knowledgeable about plants. He could distinguish what was edible and what was not. He quickly identified a honey plant and ate of its fruit. He gave Enki another to eat and he liked it. Enki put Guru in charge of gathering food, deciding what was good. By evening they had food and water.
On the fourth day the winds finally ceased. The waves stopped tossing the chariot about. It was save to bring tools forth from the chariots. Time to build more suitable abodes for our encampment.
Enki put Kulla in charge of fashioning clay bricks. Enki also instructed Mushdammu to lay the foundations and erect the dwelling abodes. The Sun shone all day. It was a great day, full of light!
Kingu, Earth’s moon was in fullness that night. It cast a pale light on the Earth. Among the celestial gods, a lesser light rules the night.
Another evening, then morning, the fourth day was recorded on the log for me.
On the fifth day Enki commissioned Ea Ningirsig to fashion a boat of reeds. He was to measure the marsh, determine the stretch of the swamplands.
Ulmash, master of water creatures and flying fowl was assigned the task of distinguishing what was good and bad. But he’d never seen the likes of these creatures before. Their numbers were bewildering. Good carp were swimming among things that were inedible.
Enki directed Enbilulu, the marshland master to fashion a barrier with canebrakes and green reeds so they could separate the fish from fish. They trapped the carp with nets and fashioned snares no bird could escape for the birds good for food.
Thus they separated fish and fowl, determined what was good for eating and what was not.
And it was evening, then morning, marking the fifth day on Earth.
The Log continued, We focused on the creatures of the land on the sixth day. I assigned Enursag the task of cataloging everything that creeps and walks. He was quite alarmed to discover how ferocious the beasts were that surrounded us and so I commanded Kulla and Mushdammu to construct a fence to protect our compound before dark. All the heroes were put to task. They made and laid bricks on foundations and used trees for the fencing and reeds for roofs.
Anzu brought the Beam that Kills and the Speaker from the chariot and set them up in the compound. By evening time the encampment was complete. We gathered inside by night. Safe, we felt good about all that we accomplished.
And it was evening, then morning, the sixth day.
On the seventh day Enki gathered the Astronauts and spoke, “We’ve undertaken a hazardous journey, overcoming much as we traversed from Nibiru to the seventh planet. We successfully arrived on Ki, which we now have renamed Earth, established an encampment and completed much good. Let this, the seventh day be a day of rest. And hereafter the seventh day always to be a resting day. Henceforth let this place be called Eridu, meaning Home in the Faraway. Let us keep our promise, declare Alalu of Eridu our commander!”
The heroes shouted agreement in unison. Alalu uttered words of consent then paid homage to me. Let Ea be given a second name, Nudimmud, the Artificial Fashioner.”
Enki (Lord of Earth) was, before he was given the epithet Nudimmud, was called Ea, namesake of EArth.
The heroes agreed, shouting in unison.
And it was evening, then morning. Thus marked the end of the seventh day.
THE SEARCH FOR GOLD
I must take time to listen, to prepare for our landing. So where’s that next ME?
I uploaded the ME I had from Enki. He said, “Dearest Sister. I’m so glad you’re coming. I can’t wait to see you again. I’ve missed you. And you’ll love it here. It’s a garden of great beauty and wonder! What till you see all the wild life and strange variety of beings.
After we established our encampment and the heroes were all satiated with food, I went to the waters and started extracting gold. We stirred up the Fire Stones in the chariot awakening the A Great Cracker”, extending a hose to suck water into the marsh waters and directed the waters into a vessel of crystals. The crystals extracted all that is metal and the excess waters were recycled back into the fishpond. I designed the mechanism which worked extraordinarily well. See what a genius I am?
For six days were sucked in marsh waters, spat out excess, collected metals. And on the seventh day we examined what kind of metals we had in the belly of the vessel.
We had iron, much copper and very little gold.
Nidimmud came up with another idea and created a system for additional sorting of metals.
The heroes separated the metals by kind on shore. They toiled for six days. It was hard work. On the seventh day, as promised, they rested. The vessels were filled and emptied. On the seventh day we counted the metals. Once again there was iron, copper, some other metals. The gold was the smallest pile.
In the nighttimes the Moon waxed and waned. I called the Moon cycle Month. At the start of each month, it was luminous for six days. By half crown the seventh day of rest was announced. At midway the Moon was distinguished by fullness. Then it paused and started to become diminished.
With the Sun’s course the moon’s circuit appeared. With Earth’s circuit it revealed its face.
I was fascinated by the Moons motions and Kingu’s attachment to Ki. What purpose does this attachment serve? What heavenly sign was it giving? I called the circuit a Month. For two months we separated waters from metals.
Every six months I gave to the Sun the name of a season; Winter, and Summer I gave to the following six months. By the end of a year a full circuit was made. Winter and Summer a full circuit was called.
By the end of Year one the accumulated gold account was taken. There wasn’t much to dispatch to Nibiru.
I decided to move the chariot to deeper waters since it seemed the swamp waters were deficient. We lifted the chariot from its moorings and moved it back to where it was before. We stirred up the crystal vessels and as the saltwaters moved through them this passing, and as the metals were separated we finally saw the sparkling of gold. Anu was so pleased when we beamed home the news.
It came time for the return of Nibiru to the Sun’s abode, as destined. Nibiru was once again attaining closeness to Earth on its Shar circuit and Anu grew more and more eager. He was excited and frequently asked if there was enough gold to send to Nibiru.
But as the time grew nearer, there still was not enough gold to make it worth the effort, so I made the decision and told Father to let another Shar pass and then the quantity would be doubled! Anu agreed.
We continued our operation but I grew apprehensive. Progress was slow. I confess I wish there was more.
We created a sky chamber from canabalizing the chariot and appointed the pilot Abgal as he was the most qualified for the mission. Every day Abgal and I soared up to the sky chamber to learn more about the Earth from above. We built an enclosure for the sky chamber and placed it by Alalu’s chariot.
We studied crystals so we might better understand where the gold comes from. We need to discover where on Earth were Tiamat’s gold veins?
When Abgal and I made our journeys to the sky chamber we often traveled over great mountains and saw valleys, great rivers, steppes and forests that stretched thousands of leagues and separated by oceans. We scanned the soil with our beams, forever searching.
Meanwhile father back on Nibiru was growing quite impatient. He had to answer to the people who wondered if the gold protection could truly be provided.
Nibiru was nearing and we have to assemble and deliver gold. Father was demanding. He commanded that we repair Alalu’s chariot so it could be fit to return to Nibiru.
I contemplated the matter of repairing the ship, returning it to Nibiru. Before that could be done, a secret deed must be completed. With Abgal I entered the chariot that was docked by the sky chamber and together we removed seven “Weapons of Terror” and hid them in the sky chamber.
Dearest Sister, I tell you this even though you may not approve. But these weapons of terror must never fall into the wrong hands. They affect all of creation, sometimes harming all beyond repair. Their potential’s death to us all.
At sunrise Abgal and I soared to a far distant land and there, in a secret cave, I hid them. And while I tell you of their existence, I will not tell you where they’re hidden.
Then I told Anzu to repair Alalu’s chariot, make it ready to return to Nibiru. It had to be ready by the Shar’s completion.
Anzu, highly skilled in chariot maintenance and repair, set to the task of his labors with great enthusiasm. Anzu, happily singing while he worked, soon made thrusters harmoniously hum as he referenced repair manuals and made sense of them like no others possibly could.
It was inevitable that he’d discover the absence of the Weapons of Terror. When he did, he cried out with anger! I stopped him mid track, explained why I hid them, told him that it is forbidden to use them! They are not to be used in heavens or firm lands, they shall never be harnessed!
Anzu was upset. He argued that passage through the Hammered Bracelet would never ben safe without them. He believed that without them or Water Thrusters, the danger is too great to endure.
Abgal, the pilot, boldly came from behind the others and stepped forward toward the leaders. “I shall be the pilot,” he proclaimed, the dangers I shall valiantly face”!
Thus the decision was made that Abgal shall be the pilot and Anzu will remain on Earth. On Nibiru, the stargazers contemplated the planets seeking the most opportune day for the return mission.
Finally, the time neared. Into Alalu’s chariot we loaded basketfuls of gold.
The time came, and Abgal entered the chariot, took the commanders seat. I gave him a Tablet of Destiny, a program I created based on our journey in that outlined the best pathway to follow.
The chariot’s fire stones stirred creating a hum like music that I always find enthralling. The Great Cracker enlivened, cast a reddish brilliance all around. Alalu and I and the multitude of heroes gathered around to bid Abgal farewell.
The hopes of two worlds ignited with the roar of the chariot as it ascended to heaven.
I beamed word to Nibiru announcing the success of the launch. All we could do now is wait. On Nibiru there was much expecting.
Ninmah, I can’t explain how anxious we were. We worked round the clock, day and night for this moment and if one thing went wrong, then all would be lost. The hopes of both worlds lay in the hands of one being. If we were to survive, we surely needed the Creator of All on our side.
THE JOURNEY HOME
Abgal guided the chariot with confidence, circuiting Kingu, the Moon to gain speed generated by the netpowers. A thousand leagues, then thousand leagues he journeyed toward Lahmu. By its netpower a direction toward Nibiru he obtained.
Beyond Mars, the Hammered Bracelet Asteroids were whirling. Ominous it appeared. Abgal ignited Ea’s crystals. Glowing he searched for the previously opened path.
The eye of fate looked upon him with favor! Beyond the Bracelet the chariots beamed signals reached Nibiru. Homeward, homeward was the direction!
Ahead in the darkness, reddish hued Nibiru glowed; a beauteous sight to behold! The chariot now easily followed beamed signals from home.
Three times the chariot circled Nibiru so it’s speed could be slowed by its netforce. Nearing the planet Abgal clearly saw the life-threatening breach in the atmosphere. He felt a squeezing in this heart, thinking of all the hopes attached to the gold he was bringing.
Passing through the thick atmosphere, the chariot intensely glowed, the heat was overbearing! Deftly Abgal spread the chariot’s wings, arresting the descent. Beyond lay a most inviting sight, the place of the chariots. Abgal gently brought the chariot down to a place by the beams.
He opened the hatch to a multitude of populace assembled to greet him. Anu stepped forward, locked arms, uttering warm greetings. Heroes rushed into the chariot to retrieve the gold laden backets. They carried them high above their heads for all to see.
Anu turned to the assembled masses and shouted words of victory. “Salvation is here!” he declared.
Abgal was accompanied to the palace to rest and tell his tale. A celebration was at hand.
The gold was a most dazzling sight to behold. The savants quickly took it away to begin the process of making fine dust to be launched skyward to save our world.
They fashioned and tested for a shar. The rockets carried the dust heavenward and it was dispersed by crystal beams. Where there once was a breach, the heavens now healed!
Joy filled the palace. Abundance across the land was now expected. To Earth Anu beamed good words. “Gold gives us salvation!” he confirmed. “Continue to obtain gold.”
TRY, TRY AGAIN
When Nibiru next came near the Sun, the golden dust was disturbed by its rays. The healing of the atmosphere dwindled and the breach returned to its original huge size.
Sister, what can I say? Not again! Are we meant to survive? What is the answer? How can we possibly do this? We’re still here, alive. We just do it again. And again, and again till somewhere, somehow we do it just right.
Anu commanded Abgal to return to the Earth. This time he included more heroes in the chariot. In its bowels waters to suck in a thrust out were provided. Nungal was assigned as a co-pilot helper to Abgal.
Abgal was greated with great joy when he returned to Eridu. We greeted and locked arms.
I contemplated the new water-workings. While I maintained a smile on my face, in my heart I felt huge squeezing. By Shar time when Nungal was to depart in the chariot, there were only a few baskets of gold in the chariot’s bowels. I knew in my heart there would be huge disappointment on Nibiru.
I consulted with Alalu. We considered all that was known. If Earth was the head of Tiamat cut off in the Celestrial Battle, where was the neck where the golden veins were cut asunder? Where were the golden veins protruding from Earth’s innards?
I took to the sky chamber and traveled over mountains and valleys. Using the scanner I examined the lands that were separated by oceans. Again and again there was the same indication. Where dry land from dry land was torn apart, Earth’s innards were revealed.
Where the landmass was in the shape of a heart, the lower part contained abundant golden veins from Earth’s innards!
I gave that region the name Abzu, which means the Birthplace of Gold. Then I beamed back to Anu what I had discovered. “The Earth is indeed filled with gold. But we must obtain it from the veins, not the waters. The Gold originates from Earth’s bowels, not from its waters. From a region beyond the ocean, Abzu it is called, abundance of gold can be gotten!”
In the palace there was great astonishment. Savants and counselors gathered to give Ea’s words consideration. It was unanimous, the gold must be obtained. But how to obtain it from the bowels of the Earth? There was much discussion.
In the assembly a prince spoke up. They turned to see. Enlil, the half brother of Ea shoving his way through the crowd to the dais on which sat Nibiru’s wisest elders who led the assembly of savants.
But wait, before I go into what happened next, Ninmah, dear Sis, I need to interrupt this report and clarify a few things. First of all I want you to know that I’ve had plenty of time to reflect on what happened with us, that I’ve come to peace with all on many levels. I’m happy with my life, bottom line, and that level of happiness comes because in the grand design of creation it’s right and what was meant to be.
I admit I’ve not been without my emotional responses, some of which were huge and negative, not to mention reactions and judgments that were less than spiritually evolved. I’ve been through some very dark times, one night (maybe two) that I would call my “dark nights of the soul”. But I’m sophisticated enough, an old soul who’s been incarnated many times in many forms and spent enough time in this one to gain a bit of wisdom and insight into the nature of reality, especially this one that has its fair share of challenges. There are no victims in this passion play. And I’ve certainly not been one in our dynamics. Things are as they should be (and I don’t like shoulds, you know that). So here we are and now we have this relationship. So be it.
Many times I fantasize about our life, how it could have been. I see you by my side, as my Queen and spouse, partner for life. Our children run at our side, grow up to be fine adults, intelligent, beautiful, excellent leaders each in their own right. I see us living in true partnership, balanced, equal mates, Queen and King, sharing leadership, guiding where each is best suited to lead, as it was long ago in our own history, the story of our civilization where it was meant to go long ago before our world started to fall apart, the atmosphere leaking into the heavens, our people dying en masse, the stress, strife, distrust and war. War, so evil, so senseless. And here we are a people who knew our fair share of such things. And now we are on the brink of extinction, payment for our folly. We have much karma to clear. And that is why I must thus attempt to clear any resentments and misunderstandings that stand between us and what we now must do.
I know what’s coming. It’s inevitable that you will be asked to come here with a group of your finest healers to help me figure this out, to save our home, our world and now that I’m here and better understand a few things, to create and develop this one. Ninmah, this place is incredible. It’s beauty must be much like Nibiru once was, long before we evolved as the dominant species and screwed everything up so horribly that nature itself and the Creator of All align against us to expel us from the planet, like parasites, like pests that must be destroyed or destroy their hosts.
We must wake up, become conscious and do things better. We suffer our karma. Yet, we are growing up, becoming wise, and as long as I breathe, I dedicate my life, my very existence to my people, and, to you dearest, dear Sister.
When you were born, there was great celebration in all corners of all lands. Children were not coming. I was an only child for so long. Then Enlil came along. And we were glad for his arrival but knew we needed you, a girl child in order to continue our line. I was gifted with great intelligence, a level this likes we Anunnaki have not known in many generations. I know, don’t laugh, that sounds so vein Sis, but I’m so happy that I was blessed with this gift, by the Creator of All. I love being brilliant! I love solving problems, coming up with answers, solutions to what ails our world, sometimes just in the nick of time. Surely this is divine providence. Surely this is my reward for lifetimes lived well in other worlds. I am delighted for my role. And when I saw you, I knew you too were destined for great things.
I was there outside the birthing room, pacing with father, anxious for your arrival, knew you were inbound, a soul chosen from the heavens, my beloved, my mate, wife, whole life. And so it was, you were born, female, a woman to be, the wife meant for me. Oh my, what a delight. My heart soared, my feet lifted high off the ground others had to pull me back to land so I wouldn’t zoom into space. Never has a being ever been as happy as I. Well perhaps Father came a second close. As much as men are revered in this crazy upside world, Father was joyous and relieved that you, his daughter, at long last was here.
I remember so clearly, as if it were now, looking at your face. Those incredible aqua-blue eyes, like deep wells swallowed my soul. I sunk into the depths of them and saw who you were, an ancient of ancients, my beloved throughout time. We’ve been together before. You know it. We’ve done so much and what needed to be done on this world, you came to me to be at my side. No matter what happens, what form, twists and turns life delivers, you have been and always will be with me, at my side, whether your body’s here or not. We two souls are forever entwined. You are mine. I am yours. Nothing ever comes between us. Nothing. Know that. Nothing.
You grew. We grew closer, together always on some level, even when I was so busy. A part of my mind was always connected to yours. We have so much in common. Not the little things. No. We have likes and dislikes unique to our personalities. But we think alike. Our emotions similar, alike, run deeper and more intense than others. I swear we come from the same race, a higher race of more enlightened beings. I know deep in side my soul, that we knew we were coming to Nibiru and planned it all long before, in life in between lives, in heaven, true heaven, the realm where we reside to rest and decide what’s next.
I admit I was shocked when you betrayed me. Oh, now that sounds like a victim, I know. I’m sorry, I’m laughing so hard at myself and was going to censor and re-record what I just said. But no, sweet, sweet sister, I’ll let that one stand so you can better understand me, know me for who I am and the thoughts and feelings that run through me. For I desire that you know me like no other.
I understand. Enlil’s charming in his own right. So dashing, handsome, far more better looking than I ever was. No, that’s not fair to me. I have my qualities that are well received by all. I too am charming. Yes, true. Yet Enlil’s dashing. What can I say? I’d marry him if it was appropriate based on his looks. But at the core of it all, we, he and I, unlike you and I, don’t often see eye to eye. We think way differently than each other. He’s like the polar opposite. We play games with ideas. I think one thing, he challenges me. Back and forth, over and over, year after year after year.
I love him. He’s my brother. And our relationship is, has been and probably will be at its best, difficult. What can I say? He is my mirror, my disowned parts, my reflection, projection and perhaps my greatest teacher. In some ways he heals my soul. He challenges me to be better, to move past that which I judge and always, always do better than that. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. I’m sorry love, ha, ha, I can, ha ha ha, hardly contain myself. Seriously, can’t you see? The Creator of All must have the most insane sense of humor, putting the three of us in the same family, such close proximity to each other. No wonder father’s happiest when we’re off elsewhere amusing ourselves with the challenges of life.
Now you have a son and I have a wife, Damkina, who in her own way is a delight. She’s beautiful, intelligent, witty. She makes me laugh. She’s a wonderful lover and someday will make a good mother. Yes, ours was a political union, a marriage of convenience. Yet when I was on Nibiru, she kept company, often remained dutifully with me for hours in the same room but pursuing her own interests. It felt comforting, sweet. I miss her.
No, you and I have a very different relationship than the one I have with my wife. We think alike. Our minds genetically related, operate similarly. You’ll like her, when you get to know her and you will, as when you come here to be with me, to work with me, I ask that you bring her with you if possible. If not, it’s inevitable, eventually she will be here by my side, as is her duty and responsibility. Alalu, her father, longs for her. So please, friend her. I know you’ll like her, will eventually develop a close friendship and believe me, you will somewhere in time need strong allies to carry you through the challenges yet to come.
And who knows? Perhaps someday I’ll yet get you in my bed. You know I want you and as a royal prince, am not limited, can share love with whom I wish. And maybe, if you like Damkina enough, the three of us can share some jollies. You know me, always lusty. You know besides the deep love I have always carried for you, I lust for you as well. You touch me in every cell of my being. You are my inspiration, the song of my soul, the fire in my heart, the wings for my spirit. Together we fly. Without you I die. Ha, ha. I know, silly me. Always playing with words. I can’t help myself.
Soon dear sis, you’ll get word. Well actually, if you’re listening to this, you already have word and are in the ship heading to Ki, to me, to be…. ??? Will you be with me? Ha, ha, ha.
Give Damkina a kiss for me, please. And if you wish, you have my permission, do use your tongue dear one.
I love you. I have to go, being called back to duty. When I can, as soon as I can, I will return to talking to you for communicating with you always comforts my soul, helps me make it through the day (and they are so short my love, wait and see!)
Oh, Gotta go.. bye…… Enki out……..
Static buzzed in Ninmah’s ear. “What is that?” she wondered. “Oh he must not have disconnected entirely. What an annoying sound.” Ninmah ejected the ME. Smiled. “That’s my Ea“, she said allowed to no one but herself as she was alone in her room.
She noticed she was still smiling. She walked over to the mirror, examined her face. “You are not so bad, my dear.” she told her reflection in the mirror. She grabbed a wash cloth, ran hot water in the basin, dipped the cloth in and covered her face with it’s delicious warmth.
“What am I getting into?” she wondered. “What do I feel?”
I love Ea. Enki. He now calls himself Enki, is known as Enki. I must get used to that, address him properly when next we meet.
“How do I feel about all this?” Ninmah spoke allowed to the face in the mirror that reflected back signs of distress. “Hmm, look at yourself, girl. Are you that conflicted?”
She dipped the cloth into the wam water again, squeezed out the excess water and ran it across her face, to the back of her neck as she gently turned her head from side to side, stretching and permitting the warmth of the rag to penetrate deep into sore muscles.
“When did I get so tired? I’m exhausted”, she finally admitted, like a deep confession long denied. She’d been working herself too hard, on this, a long journey that’s meant to be relaxing, a break to build up strength so she might be prepared for what’s yet to come. “What is yet to come?” she began, about to launch herself into yet another endless series of worries and wonder.
“Go to bed, get some sleep!” she ordered herself, once again speaking aloud to an empty room. She headed to bed. Something near the end table on the floor caught her eye half hidden behind the pillow that had slipped from the bed. She reached and picked it up. It was a doll, from her childhood. “How did my doll get here on the chariot?”
“What a mystery”, she thought, mind racing to remember. “It must have been tucked between clothes in my closet, packed by accident in the rush to begin our journey.” Again no response. But now she spoke to the doll. “How did YOU get here?” she asked it.
“It’s all such a blur. I wasn’t thinking clear so who knows how you got here? But here you are. It was somehow meant to be.”
She stared at the doll. It was small, a rag doll, simple design, nothing complex. As she stared at it’s stitches that threatened to come apart in a few places, suddenly she was transported back in time. The doll, magically triggered repressed thoughts and teleported her back to her crib, to a time long ago through a time portal of unconscious memories not thought for ages. The veil faded and she clearly saw a handsome young man opening the door and quietly entering her darkened room, one hand behind his back”.
“There you are, my beloved, you’ve finally come to me, your husband to be.” The most beautiful blue eyes loomed before me, their beauty brought tears to my ears. I smiled back at the boy. He smiled at me and gave me the doll, the one I now held in my hand. His eyes pierced my soul, touched my heart. I trembled, shuddering with excitement.
“I know this is but a doll, a simple one at that. But I put my love into it and sewed it myself as a token of my love and hopes that you’ll accept our betrothal, not as an act of duty to our people, but because you love me as much as I love you. This is our first official meeting in this life. You must be tired for being born is quite a job. But I couldn’t wait. I just had to see you alone, just you and me.
I touched you and sang to you in your mother’s womb, as much as she would let me and as much as time permitted. I pray you remember the sound of my voice and rejoice when you hear it as we are now both here embodied in flesh and such things as voices anchor us and reconnect us when apart. I have never forgotten you.”
Yes, my memories like others are clouded by the veil of forgetfulness we enter when incarnating in form. Yet I am an eternal being, as are you and my soul never forgets no matter who I am, whenever I am, such as now, here, as your brother, Enki.
I will not push you to remember. Those types of things must come in their own time. And I too may fall into unconsciousness, forgetfulness, perhaps even despair. For I am now open, conscious, as a result of witnessing the miracle of your birth. You pushed open the portal, the veil between realms in the process of coming through to this world. I’m not sure the others felt it. But I knew. You are a mighty being, dear Ninmah. Remember who you are for you are here to do great things.”
But now, it’s time to sleep the deep sleep that only babies can fully do. And in the days to come you must be who you now are. Dream of where you came from, who you are as your soul travels the universe while you sleep. I have time, as do you, for love, of that I am sure. Goodnight sweet princess. You know I’m always here for you.”
I fell asleep, soothed by his words. At that time, I didn’t understand a word of what he was saying. Now, it’s as though a recorder was left running. Every detail’s come through as if I were there. Ea kissed my cheek, set the doll beside me and left. I really didn’t wake up till just now.
That’s it for this episode of Ninmah’s Journey. This has been Part 1. Tune into the next Episode of Ninmah’s Journey, NINMAH’S SOJOURN ON MARS, on the next Aquarian Radio broadcast.
