Woke up this morning drinking coffee watching the Eastern sun come up from the seas.  Something I had not done in a thousand years.  I looked around my horizon all appeared as usual  and the skies above nothing had changed since yesterday.

I remember as a child in the autumn season.  Me and my family would travel to lands of my Grandfather Abram, who lived a couple miles north of the city UR on the Tigris river.  We would go to help him deliver his cattle to the markets in the city of  Mari a couple of hundred miles to his north.  At the time the city of Mara,  besides Babylon, was one of the wealthiest cities in the ancient lands on the Tigris.  Merchants from around the world would come to Mara to trade and sell their goods.

Each morning before we journeied we would perform our morning abulations purifying our bodies with water a symbolic bath.  If we were pressed for time he would get a silver chalice with spring water and sprinkle it on our heads.

He would then lead us in a prayer to all the family to guard our days journeys from marauding lords that crossed the land.  Prayer is always good for the soul and the lands that you cross.

Prayer Request 1730 BC

I am Hammurabi (use your name), noble king. 1 have not been careless or negligent toward humankind, granted to my care by the god Enlil, and with whose shepherding the god Marduk charged me. 1 have sought for them peaceful places, 1 removed serious difficulties, 1 spread light over them. With the mighty weapon which the gods Zababa and Ishtar bestowed upon me, with the wisdom which the god Ea allotted to me, with the ability which the god Marduk gave me, 1 annihilated enemies everywhere, 1 put an end to wars, 1 enhanced the weHbeing of the land, 1 made the people of aH settlements lie in safe pastures, 1 did not tolerate anyone intimidating them. The great gods having chosen me, 1 am indeed the shepherd who brings peace, who scepter is just. My benevolent shade is spread over my city, 1 held the people of the lands of Sumer and Akkad safely on my lap. They prospered under my protective spirit, 1 maintained them in peace, with my skillful wisdom 1 sheltered them.

ln order that the mighty not wrong the weak, to provide just ways for the waif and the widow, 1 have inscribed my precious pronouncements upon my stela and set it up being of the people and provided just ways for the land.”

May he say thus, and may he pray for me with his whole heart before the gods Marduk, my lord, and Zarpanitu, my lady. May the protective spirits, the gods who enter the Esagil temple, and the very brickwork of the Esagil temple, make my daily portents auspicious before the gods Marduk, my lord, and Zarpanitu, my lady.

May any king who will appear in the land in the future. at any time, observe the pronouncements of justice that 1 inscribed upon my stela. May he not alter the judgments that 1 rendered and the verdicts that 1 gave, nor remove my engraved image. If that man has discernment, and is capable of providing just ways for his land, may he heed the pronouncements 1 have inscribed upon my stela, may that stela reveal for him the traditions, the proper conduct, the judgments of the land that 1 rendered, the verdicts of the land that 1 gave and may he, too, provide just ways for aU humankind in his care. May he render their judgments, may he give their verdicts, may he eradicate the wicked and the evil from his land, may he enhance the weUbeing of his people.

May the goddess Ninlil, the great mother, whose utterance is honored in the Ekur temple, the mistress who makes my portents auspicious, denounce his case before the god Enlil at the place of litigation and verdict: may she indu ce the divine king Enlil to prono un ce the destruction of his land,
the obliteration of his people,52 and the spilling

May the god Ea, the great prince, whose destinies take precedence, the sage among the gods, all-knowing, who lengthens the days of my life, deprive him of all understanding and wisdom, and may he lead him into confusion: may he dam up his rivers at the source: may he not allow any life-sustaining grain in his land.

May the god Shamash, the great judge of heaven and earth, who provides just ways for all living creatures, the lord, my trust, overturn his kingship: may he not render his judgments, may he confuse his path and undermine the morale of his army: when divination is per- night for him. and make his enemy triumph over him.

May the goddess Ishtar, mistress of battle and warfare, who bares my weapon, my benevolent protective spirit. who loves my reign, curse his kingship with her angry heart and great fury; may she turn his auspicious omens into calamities; may she smash his weapon on the field of war and battle, plunge him into confusion and rebellion, strike down his warriors, drench the earth with their blood, make a heap of the corpses of his soldiers upon the plain, and may she show his soldiers no mercy; as for him, may she deliver him into the hand of his enemies, and may she lead him bound captive to the land of his enemy.

May the god Nergal, the mighty one among the gods, the irresistible onslaught, who enables me to achieve my triumphs, burn his people with his great overpowering weapon like a raging fire in a reed thicket; may he have him beaten with his mighty weapon, and shatter his limbs like like those of a clay figuure.

May the goddess Nintu, august mistress of the lands, the mother. my creator, deprive him of an heir and give him no offspring;may she not allow a human child to be born among his people.

May the goddess Ninkarrak, daughter of the god Anu, who pro- formed for him, may he provide an inauspicious omen portending the uprooting of the foundations of his kingship and the obliteration of his land; may the malevolent word of the god Shamash swiftly overtake him, may he uproot him from among the living ab over and make his ghost thirst for water below in the nether world.

May the god Sîn, my creator, whose oracular decision prevails among the gods, deprive him of the crown and throne of kingship, and impose upon him an onerous punishment, a great penalty for him, which will not depart from his body; may he conclude every day, month, and year of his reign with groaning and mourning; may he unveil before him a con tender for the kingship; may he decree for him a life that is no better than death.

May the god Adad, lord of abundance, the canal-inspector of heaven and earth, my helper, deprive him of the benefits of rain from heaven and flood from the springs, and may he obliterate his land through destitution and famine; may he roar fiercely over his city, and may he turn his land into the abandoned hills left by flood.

May the god Zababa, the great warrior, the firstborn son of the Ekur temple, who travels at my right side, smash his weapon upon the field of battle; may he turn day into motes my cause in the Ekur temple, cause a grievous malady to break out upon his limbs, an evil demonic disease, a serious carbuncle which cannot be soothed, which a physician cannot diagnose, which he cannot ease with bandages, which, like the bite of death, cannot be expunged;56 may he bewail his lost virility until his life cornes to an end.

May the great gods of heaven and earth, aU the Anunnaku deities together, the protective spirit of the temple, the very brickwork of the Ebabbar temple, curse that one, his seed, his land, his troops, his people, and his army with a terrible curse.

May the god Enlil, who se command cannot be countermanded, curse him, and may these curses swiftly overtake him.

Over the years as the seasons past by my window panes.  I had heard of another God that a human son was born, of a  mistress, and he become lord of all deities, King of Kings.

Then I remembered parts of my Grandfathers prayer;may she not allow a human child to be born among his people.the gods Marduk, my lord, and Zarpanitu, my lady.

I came to realize as I became a man it is easier to just put my Father on speed dial and talk to him directly.

  1. I am smiling and hope you now see that the many “gods” I named by name, never meant I worshipped them. Words are swords of spiritual fetter. Freedom and wisdom can only be obtained once we understand and know the construction of the letter.
    You are a creationist. I am a constructivist. So you’ve spoken such things into existence, I work my skill set to retroactivate the forge of the L. Progressive steps, try and test, higher stakes best the behest.

    1. I am not constructing anything but destructing the present. Try and tested steps to go to a higher stake is folly it has already been tried. Life is in its own containment purely by mathematical constraints.

      1. It is divine and contrite for nothing matters at all, except for the chance to experience it. The love it, laud it, live it, lament it, learn it, laugh and light up the limits for the next lot of life seekers. Whatever way anyone makes is theirs to take. Whatever the stakes were theirs to place, not our place to judge but try to show the lessons between the lines.

      2. Nothing is divine that is an abstract word that has no absolute attached to it. Structurally you cannot put a body to it. We judge opinions from the past by putting a face to it by history which is my realm. History determines absolutes abject to the success or failure of such endeavors. The rise and fall of men’s opinions can be viewed easily enough watching the rise an fall of new opinions. Nations and families rise and fall on opinions of the Gods that are in control. Like watching the walking dead. Access the damage done to just the Nations around the world in the last couple of years when an abstract word, opinion, stood up . America is falling as is much of the Western world. America will never regain her luster but be put in chains till opinions die out. This will take several generations to succeed. Absolutes are freedom opinions enslave one.

      3. Although elliptical orbits are elastic to some degree within boundaries. They are still structurally sound . Situation you have 3 houses; One will be built out of straw, the second house is built out of sticks, the third one was made out of bricks. Lessons from the past resolve which one you will build to last. Therefore lessons from the past indeed judge the present. History always judges the soundness of ones decisions. It has its own court of Law.

      4. Yes. Thus it is important to remember history and maintain the integrity of the records. However history is often written by the victors and thereby the records cannot be taken as indomitable and universal law as a blanket catch all.
        Remember the past, and give in the present, when we live completely and whole heartedly in the here and now, the unknowable unforeseeable future reveals the rewards you left for yourself

      5. Then you are expounding an utopian idea that only resides in the cornes of history. To live in the here and now is meaningless. One becomes a slave to the here and now and nothing gets resolved.

      6. But the present is where your power lies. For you can only do and be and enact any change in the present, the tools before you to wield. Your body is here and now, but the heart and the mind may take turns living in the future and the past. But only as you are, when you bring all parts of yourself whole as one, working in unity towards a direct and single goal,… unified in body spirit and soul upon the throne of your own in your core of all you have ever known… The mastery of the self to manifest the future you envision, understand the reason for the grievance and reflect back to the past, heal and reframe/reshape the source of that pain. Leave yourself a sign in your mind to recognise the light of your life… return to the present, smile, and express graciousness. Embrace your loved ones, give thanks, eat and be merry for all the gifts of existence are there and yours for the taking. All that you can do has been done, keep the fire burning in your heart with a song on your lips, and a hand to hold will squeeze and remind you you’re not alone.

      7. Then you have resolved the situation of the 3 houses from lessons from the past to the present. It supports my hypothesis that the past can change the present in anyone’s life with a structural soundness to withstand the gale force that bracket the window panes of our citadels.
