It is one of the most fundamental things the magickian might do indicative of his craft, yet remains among the least elaborated topics in all of the published works on modern magickal practice. Why are we doing this and where does this practice come from? It is pivotally important that we both ask and answer this fundamental question as beneath its surface lies the very heart of our innermost magickal assumptions. […]

It takes time to dig out the truth and then more time to make it accessible to people so things are happening as fast as they can happen.”
The old Ningishzidda Rising thread has been reposted within Abrahadabra Forums. Non-members can read a preview below. [Members can skip this intro and read the article now]
It’s headed by a massive article commissioned by m1thr0s 729 and written by Izi Ningishzidda, intended as an update and facelift to the older and hopelessly outdated old thread header. m1thr0s had created that information way back in 2001, detailing the few known attributes of this significant deity. After years of study and digging through the stacks, this academic information now forms the core of our knowledge about Ningishzidda, who he is, who his family is, and why it might make any difference to occultists and especially Thelemites. We have always known he directly relates to Abrahadabra in some very unusual ways, but those coincidences and synergy kept rolling in long after m1thr0s discovered the name matched Abrahadabra’s numeration in the Qabbala of the Nine Chambers. Feel free to join in the conversation if you are a member of The Abrahadabra Institute!
One of the very first tasks m1thr0s set me upon is the research into the Lo Shu Square and its nine elements. While at the large downtown Memphis library, I set about some extracurricular activity on one of our favorite subjects, the god Ningishzidda. The results of that journey lead me to some pretty amazing stuff, and after some time, he tasked me on creating a large replacement article for the old “Ningishzidda Rising” thread he had started a long time ago. I can’t imagine a more volatile and charismatic godform, especially one that has personally touched so many of the lives of my comrades or rivals in magick – many times in disturbing and violent ways. I first came across his name when m1thr0s[…]
The caduceus is centered at the lip of the beaker so that liquid seems to pour from the top of the caduceus. With their scorpion tails, twining ophidian bodies, eagle taloned hind feet, the dangerous and divinely crowned creature supports and upholds the double twined serpents who represent Ningishzidda. In the Enûma Eliš, the Babylonian creation epic, Tiamat is said to have “clothed the raging lion-dragons with fearsomeness”. The winged lion dragon is considered to be so powerful as to be unrivalled in battle, hence its name also became a noun used to describe ultimate rulers. Similar in shape to the Mushussu, the Usumgallu would probably safely be considered a variant of the Mushussu, but it does have wings. The scorpion’s stinger is borrowed from another denizen of the Mesopotamian plains to form a malicious tail, while its hind feet and wings are taken from a raptor.
The style of the dragons became corrupted over time so that the gates of Babalon have a composite between the Mushussu and Usumgallu as the serpentine guardians, while lions, more realistically interpreted, are also present.It is important to note that the Babylonian times came thousands of years after the Sumerians peak and they must be taken in light of this passage of time and the great differences between the Sumerian and Semitic tribes, and even between Assyria and Babylon. Babylon did not worship Ningishzidda or his son Ninazu, known to them as Tispak, in the same way the Sumerians, Assyrians and Elamites did. [read more…]

m1thr0s [July 17, 2013 – 4:52 am]: It used to bug me more than it does now. I used to say things like *those who call us *thelemites* are liable to catch a brick across their teeth!* because i really cannot condone the whole *simon-says* approach to Completion. it creates unnecessary obstacles…more useless cliques shoving their embarrassing brand of self-righteousness at the rest of us…some very hard-working people who can never seem to get a word in edgewise for all the carnival hype surrounding the latest esoteric *fad* etc. But like I said – it’s a numbers game and these things will be the way they are whether it upsets me personally or not. best to take it all in stride and keep on pumping out the jams…
GratefulGuest [July 17, 2013 – 11:40 am]: I think I understand what you mean. I do apologize if appropriate here. I find this website as really practical. I certainly have found working with this formula of TwinStar to be very very beneficial to myself personally. I definitely see how this has a very sustainable significance and long trajectory for the elevation of humanity. I did a tarot reading for myself recently and…
GratefulGuest [July 17, 2013 – 11:43 am]: …it was more than anything indicicative of the The Hermit. Connecting with AI via this web portal is great for me, as I am in this phase of sort of Hermitting and percolating over these and other concepts on a very individualized basis. I do entirely understand what you are referring to with things often being perceived or treated as a sort of “fad”. As things such TwinStar, and other…
