Walwalag Sisters Image
THE" WALWALAG SISTERS "ARE TWO POWERFUL SPIRIT BEINGS OF THE ABORIGINE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA. THEY ARE CONSIDERED THE ANCESTORS OF ALL OF THE ABORIGINE TRIBES OF AUSTRALIA. ACCORDING TO MYTH, THESE TWO MYTHIC WOMEN WANDERED THE CONTINENT DOMESTICATING PLANTS INTO EDIBLE FOODSTUFF, EVOLVING LANGUAGE FOR EACH TERRITORY, AND NAMING ALL THE LAND'S CREATURES. IT WAS THE "WAWALAG SISTERS "WHO INTRODUCED THE CYCLES OF NATURE...GROWTH AND DECAY.

IN A STORY OF PRIMAL ORIGINS TOLD BY THE ABORIGINALS IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA,, THE TWO SISTERS ARE THE DAUGHTERS OF
" DJANNGAWUL," THE ABORIGINAL FOUNDER DEITIES. THE SISTERS HAD TO LEAVE HOME BECAUSE THEY WERE HAVING INTIMATE RELATIONS WITH THE MEN OF THE SAME TRIBE. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY HAD BROKEN THE INCEST TABOO. AFTER TRAVELING NORTH FOR A LONG WHILE, THE SISTERS CAME TO LIVE AT A WATER POOL--A SACRED PLACE--WHERE THEY ANGER THE GIANT RAINBOW-SNAKE "YURLUNGUR" SO THAT THE CREATURE CONTINUALLY SWALLOWS AND DISGORGES THEM. THEIR REBIRTH IS USED AS A SYMBOL IN BOY-TO-MAN CEREMONIES.

THIS MYTH IS REVEALED IN THE RITES WHERE WOMEN AND UNINITIATED BOYS PLAY THE ROLES OF THE SISTERS, WHILE THE MEN ACT THE PART OF THE PYTHON.

Goddess Mademoiselle Charlotte

Goddess Mademoiselle Charlotte Image
MADEMOISELLE CHARLOTTE is the Vodoun Goddess of white women. Her appearance is that of a Caucasian woman of western European descent and she speaks French. Mademoiselle Charlotte is a late Vodoun Goddess, appearing in the pantheon only after African people were brought as slaves to Haiti and other Caribbean islands. She represents the white women settlers, and she is very particular in her likes and dislikes. Mademoiselle Charlotte is fond of sweet beverages, especially if they are pink, and she appears only rarely in Vodoun rituals, as her whims dictate.

Persephone Daughter Of Demeter And Zeus  

Posted by Stella Clark

Persephone Daughter Of Demeter And Zeus Image
Persephone was the daughter of Demeter and Zeus. She loved the springtime, flowers, and running outdoors with her friends. One day, while she was picking lilies and violet, she heard a deafening roar, and the Earth opened up. Hades reached and abducted her, bringing her into the Underworld. The Earth closed up behind them. Demeter, who heard the cries of her daughter, searched everywhere, but could not find her. Finally, on Hecate's advice, she consulted with Helios, a Sun God who reputedly saw all things. He told Demeter that, with Zeus's permission, Hades had taken Persephone to the Underworld, to make her his wife.

Demeter then went to Zeus and pled for Persephone's return, but Zeus wouldn't hear of it. In despair, Demeter left Olympus and, disguised as an old woman, wandered about the Earth until she eventually retired to her temple at Eleusis preparing to take revenge on the Gods and mankind by preventing all crops from growing for a year.

Zeus had no choice but to listen to her demands after this. He sent Iris (daughter of Thaumus and a messenger of the Gods) and Moirae (the fates; daughters of Zeus) to plead with her, but Demeter wouldn't listen. When the Earth continued to die, Zeus gave in and sent Hermes to the Kingdom of Hades where he obtained Hades promise that Persephone would be returned. But, Hades 'really' didn't want to return her so he gave her a pomegrante to eat. This became the symbol of their marriage, and she was bound to him.

Persephone was returned to her mother, who upon discovering that Persephone had eaten in the Underworld, knew that her daughter was going to have to return to Hades. She once again threatened to prevent the crops from growing if this were the case. Rhea (the Earth) suggests a compromise. Persephone was to spend two-thirds of the year with her mother and the remaining portion with Hades in the Underworld. Demeter agreed and every year that Persephone returns to Earth, she brings the spring with her.

"Persephone is the goddess of the unconscious, of intuition and mystery. Her Underworld journey acquaints her with death and suffering. Symbolically, the myth is teaching us about the process of individuation, the process of coming into wholeness within the self and the life, death, and rebirth cycle that is inherent in all transformational processes. "

"Prayer to Persephone" Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, and daughter of Demeter, give leave for me to speak. I, too, have been to the land of the dead, and now I live. Ensure that my perceptions are not limite merely to what I hear, see, touch, and taste; but extend into the other realms."Make my intuition accurate and true as I deal with life"and all its permutations. Help my spirit find its path in life as I fulfill my destiny.

She wanders during Lent disguised as a woman, visiting houses and doing housework; at night strands of fleece are laid beside the stoves for her.

One prayer involves going to the fields at dawn in August with jars filled with hemp oil, which is poured out after each invocation, and finally, the jar is shattered on the ground.

Goddess Hina  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Hina Image
Hina was one of the great ancestral goddesses of Hawaii and is most revered for the sacred story of her journey into the Moon. The tale goes that Hina left the heavens and took on a human husband because she loved the Hawaiian Islands which were known as the "Ring of Fire" due to all the volcanic activity. Hina had many children and spent many happy years on Earth. But then, her husband began to get increasingly hateful and demanding of her...and she began to realize that not even her children did anything to help her. Hina was left to take care of everything...including supporting the family by making and selling the most beautiful tapas (decorative cloth).

Eventually, Hina could take no more from her worthless family and made the decision to leave. Now, it is told, that Hina possessed the ability to cast a rainbow at her will and that she alone had the ability to walk on them. So, she cast a rainbow and began to climb back home, to the heavens...but, alas, the further she walked, the hotter the Sun became, and she had left home without any provisions...and when her thirst became so great that she couldn't bear it anymore, she was forced to return to her Earthly abode.

She was exhausted when she arrived and found no welcome from her family. Her husband beat her unmercifully because she had not prepared his dinner while her sons stood there hurling insults at the goddess. Defeated, she dragged herself into the bedroom and collapsed onto her bed...but not before she packed herself a bag.

The next morning she arose long before the Sun rose, retrieved her bag, filled a water skin, and quietly exited the house. Her husband, sensing something was amiss, awoke, and chased after her, quickly catching up. Hina cast a rainbow at the first object she saw in the night sky; it was the setting Moon on the western horizon. She struggled to step up onto the rainbow, but pushed herself, knowing that her husband would catch her in a moment.

At the point, the Gods saw the danger that Hina was facing and moved the Moon closer to Her. Now Hina realized that she was receiving assistance from above and breathed a sigh of relief....knowing that now her husband could not catch her; he could not climb the rainbow. But, just when she thought she was safe, she lost her footing, fell, and began sliding back down the rainbow. Her husband caught her foot and began pulling on her.

Hina, in a desperate attempt to survive, flipped over on her back and kicked her husband in the face...and then she cast a thunder clap which was so long and loud that her husband had no choice but to let her go so he could cover his ears. Once free of his grasp, Hina regained her footing and eventually made it to the Moon safely. Once there, she began to forget about her dreadful earth family as she sat up a new, happier home for herself, continuing to make her beautiful tapas which always gave her such joy. And from time to time, she would send thunder and lightening down to the Earth...for her own amusement.

And that, my friends, is how the Moon became female. The people of the Islands call her "The Woman in the Moon" and say that when it rains, it is because Hina is spreading Joy and Happiness; when it storms, she is reliving the morning she escaped from her husband and family.

Ninurta  

Posted by Stella Clark

Ninurta Cover
Ninurta in Sumerian and Akkadian mythology was the god of Lagash, identified with Ningirsu with whom he may always have been identical. In older transliteration the name is rendered Ninib and in early commentary he was sometimes portrayed as a solar deity. In Nippur, Ninurta was worshiped as part of a triad of deities including his father, Enlil and his mother, Ninlil. In variant mythology, his mother is said to be the deity Ninhursag. Ninurta often appears holding a bow and arrow, a sickle sword, or a mace named Sharur: Sharur is capable of speech in the Sumerian legend "Deeds and Exploits of Ninurta" and can take the form of a winged lion and may represent an archetype for the later Shedu. In another legend, Ninurta battles a birdlike monster called Imdugud; a Babylonian version relates how the monster Anz^u steals the Tablets of Destiny which Enlil requires to maintain his rule. Ninurta slays each of the monsters later known as the "Slain Heroes", and despoils them of valuable items, and finally Anz^u is killed by Ninurta who delivers the Tablet to his father, Enlil. The consort of Ninurta was Ugallu in Nippur and Bau when he was called Ningirsu.

MYTHOLOGY AND STORYTELLING COMPRISE A LARGE PART OF THEIR CULTURE. MALINA IS THEIR SUN GODDESS. SHE HAS A BROTHER NAMED ANNINGAN, THE MOON GOD. SHE AND HER BROTHER LIVED TOGETHER AND USED TO LOVE PLAYING GAMES. BUT, WHEN THEY GREW UP AND BECAME ADULTS, THINGS CHANGED. ONE NIGHT, WHILE THEY WERE PLAYING IN THE DARK, ANNINGAN RAPED HIS SISTER. SHE FOUGHT BACK, AND DURING THE CONFLICT, A SEAL LAMP OVERTURNED WHICH COVERED HER HAND WITH BLACK GREASE...WHICH SHE COVERED HIS FACE WITH WHEN SHE ATTEMPTED TO PUSH HIM AWAY.

EVENTUALLY, SHE GOT AWAY AND RAN AS FAR AS SHE COULD UP INTO THE SKY...WHERE SHE BECAME THE SUN. ANNINGAN, WHO SHOWED NO REMORSE FOR HIS CRIME, CONTINUED CHASING HER IN THE SKY; HENCEFORTH, HE BECAME THE MOON. THIS ETERNAL RACE CONTINUES ON AND OCCASIONALLY, HE CATCHES UP TO HER AND RAPES HER AGAIN. THIS IS IS WHY WE HAVE THE SOLAR ECLIPSE.

NOW, INUIT LEGEND GOES THAT ANNINGAN TENDS TO CONCENTRATE SO MUCH ON HIS MALINA, THAT HE FORGETS TO EAT...AND AS THE DAYS GO BY, HE GETS THINNER AND THINNER...UNTIL ONCE A MONTH HE (THE MOON) DISAPPEARS FOR THREE DAYS SO THAT HE CAN EAT. BUT, HE WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO CHASE HIS SISTER. AND THIS IS HOW THE INUIT PEOPLE EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENT PHASES OF THE MOON.

Yahweh Blessed The House

Yahweh Blessed The House Image
Tetragrammaton in Phoenician (1100 BC to 300 CE), Aramaic (10th Century BC to 0) and modern Hebrew scripts. YAHWEH (y"a`we) is a modern scholarly guess as to how the name of the deity found in the archaeological record and the Hebrew Bible may be pronounced.

The name is recorded as the four Hebrew consonants: YHWH; without vowels, thus the vocalization can only be guessed at today. The Masoretic text of Judaism records the vocalization of the consonantal text using a system of points, however the vocalization of YHWH was considered inappropriate to record. The Septuagint translation of Hellenistic Judaism into Koine Greek also did not record the pronunciation of the name. Other forms are Jah, Jahve, Jahveh, Jahweh, Jehovah, Yahve, Yahveh, and Yahwe. The original name for God found in Genesis 1:1ff is Elohim. It changes from Elohim" to "YHWH Elohim", with God directly naming himself in Exodus 3:13-15. (Yahweh) in In the Hebrew Bible Yahweh is the one true God who delivered Israel from Egypt and entered into a covenant with his chosen people: "Then God spoke all these words.

He said, 'I am Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you lived as slaves. You shall have no other gods to rival me.'
" Yahweh revealed himself to Israel as a God who would not permit his people to make idols or follow gods of other nations or worship gods known by other names, "I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or My praise to idols." which is referred to as the Shema. To declare their belief that Israel's God was universal sovereign over all others as well as Israel, the more common noun "Elohim", derived from El, meaning "god," tended to replace Yahweh.

Yahweh demanded the role of the one true God in the hearts and minds of Israel, "Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is one: and you shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might." Modern biblical scholars have used source criticism to interpret different character attributes of Yahweh. The documentary hypothesis employs source criticism to interpret different character attributes as originating in four distinct source documents of the Torah. For example, anthropomorphic descriptions, visits from Yahweh and use of the personal name prior to Exodus 3 are attributed to the Jahwist source.

Use of the generic title, Elohim, and descriptions of Yahweh of a more impersonal nature (for example, speaking through dreams and angels rather than personal appearances) are attributed to the Elohist source. Descriptions of Yahweh as particularly concerned with whether Judah's kings were good or bad and with centralized temple worship are attributed to the Deuteronomist[10] Passages that portray Yahweh as acting through the Aaronid priesthood and temple-based sacrificial system are described as originating with the Priestly.

Historians of the Ancient Near East describe worship of Yahweh as originating in pre-Israelite peoples of the Levant[12] Theophoric names, names of local gods similar to Yahweh, and archaeological evidence are used along with the Biblical source texts to describe pre-Israel origins of Yahweh worship, the relationship of Yahweh with local gods, and the manner in which Yahweh worship evolved into Jewish monotheism. In contrast, scholars who employ methods allowing for supernaturalism and divine inspiration continue to interpret the Biblical portrayal of Yahweh in a manner consistent with faith-based views.[13]

Worship of Yahweh alone is a central idea of historical Judaism.[14] Much of Christianity views Jesus as the human incarnation of Yahweh[15], for details see Names of God in Christianity. The importance of the divine name and the character of the "one true God" revealed as Yahweh are often contrasted with the significantly different character of rival deities known by different names in the traditional polytheistic religions.[16] Some scholars, including William G. Dever, have asserted that the Asherah was worshipped as a consort of Yahweh, until the 6th century BCE, when strict monolatry of Yahweh became prevalent in the wake of the destruction of the first temple.[17][18] However, the consort hypothesis has been subject to debate with numerous scholars publishing disagreement.[19] rather than in a divine revelation to Moses.

One theory is that Jews ceased to use the name Yahweh in the intertestamental period, replacing it with the common noun Elohim, "god", to demonstrate the universal sovereignty of Israel's God over all others. At the same time, the divine name was increasingly regarded as too sacred to be uttered, and was replaced in spoken ritual by the word Adonai ("My Lord"), or with haShem ("the Name") in everyday speech[20], see Names of God in Judaism for details.

ETYMOLOGY AND MEANING


The name is generally linked to a form of the Semitic word-stem HWH (originally HWY), meaning "being" or "becoming". Amorite personal names and Greek transcriptions of the tetragrammaton suggest that the vocalization "Yahweh" is correct, and as such should be read as having derived from a causative verbal form ("he becomes" or "he is"). On the other hand, if the name is analyzed as a (non-causative) G Stem, the verb "to be" plus the name of El, the chief god in the pantheon, could give rise to the forms "yahweh-el" ("He is El", "He shows himself as El") or the reverse, "El-yahweh" (El who shows himself).[21] Exodus 3:13-15 is the first recorded instance of God naming himself. An etymologization of the name, connecting YHWH with the root HYH, occurs when YHWH, asked by Moses for his name, provides three names: "I Am That I Am", followed by "I Am," and finally "YHWH." He states that this is his name forever and a memorial name to all generations.......... "I AM THAT I AM [...] Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you [...] YHWH God of your fathers, [...] this is my name for ever"[Exod. 3:14-15] Subsequently, God Ex 3:13-15, where God names Himself first: The form 'Jehovah' is a hybrid of YHWH and the Hebrew word for Lord, and was not God's actual name in Old Testament times.[22] From about the 6th to the 10th century A.D., it is believed that Jewish scholars used the vowel signs of the Hebrew words Adonai or Elohim as the vowels for YHWH, producing the name Jehovah (YeHoWaH), and this was adopted by Christian scholars after the Renaissance.[23] In the 19th century the eminent Hebrew scholar Wilhelm Gesenius (1786-1842) suggested "Yahweh" as the most probable vocalization, based on his study of early Greek transcriptions, theophoric names, and the reported pronunciation of the name in the Samaritan tradition.[24] As a result, in the 19th and 20th centuries biblical scholars began to use the form Yahweh and it became the conventional usage in biblical scholarship.[23]

IN THE TORAH


According to the Book of Genesis, Yahweh said to Abraham: "Go forth from your native land and from your father's home to a land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, bless you and make great your name, that it may be a blessing.'"[25] This abrupt introduction of Yahweh to Abraham signals the beginning of an integral history that extends gradually to a family, then to a people, and later still to a nation.[26] Yahweh then grants Abraham a covenant-treaty codifying these promises.[27]

In the Genesis narrative, the next step of this history begins with the birth of a promised son to Abraham and his wife Sarah: "Yahweh treated Sarah as he had said, and he did what he had promised her. Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age."[28] When this son, Isaac, is grown, Abraham's servant credits Yahweh with orchestrating events to lead him to Rebekah to be Isaac's wife. Rebekah's father and brother agree: "This matter stems from Yahweh... Rebekah is at your call; take her with you and let her be a wife to your master's son, as Yahweh has spoken."[29]

When Jacob (Isaac and Rebekah's son) flees from his twin brother Esau, Yahweh appears to Jacob, saying, "I, Yahweh, am the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. The ground on which you are lying I shall give to you and your descendants."[30] After Jacob's son, Joseph, is sold as a slave in Egypt, his master notices that "Yahweh was with Joseph"[31] and takes him into his household, with the result that "Yahweh blessed the house of the Egyptian for Joseph's sake; indeed, Yahweh's blessing was on everything he owned."[32][33]

In Exodus, Yahweh initiates a covenant with Israel. His right to be Israel's God is based in his redeeming them from slavery in Egypt. The people of Israel agree to the covenant terms Yahweh gives, including the Ten Commandments:[34] I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.- Exodus 20:1-6 (WEB)[35]

In Leviticus, Yahweh indicates that these laws have an overarching purpose: to distinguish the nation of Israel and to highlight the unique identity of Yahweh. "For I am Yahweh your God. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any kind of creeping thing that moves on the earth. For I am Yahweh who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy."[36] Leviticus can be described as "the book of the holiness of Yahweh" whose fundamental requirement is, "You shall be holy to me."[37]

In Numbers, the priests are instructed to bless the nation of Israel as follows: "'Yahweh bless you, and keep you. Yahweh make his face to shine on you, and be gracious to you. Yahweh lift up his face toward you, and give you peace.' "So they shall put my name on the children of Israel; and I will bless them."[38] In Deuteronomy, Moses reviews the terms of the covenant before Israel continues on to the promised land under the leadership of Joshua.[39] Yahweh intends his commands to reveal his unique wisdom and identity to the other nations of the earth.[40] Moses writes, Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, even as Yahweh my God commanded me, that you should do so in the midst of the land where you go in to possess it.

Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who shall hear all these statutes, and say, 'Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.' For what great nation is there, that has a god so near to them, as Yahweh our God is whenever we call on him? What great nation is there, that has statutes and ordinances so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

- Deuteronomy 4:5-8 (WEB)[41]The detailed religious requirements of the covenant should not detract from the love between Israel and their redeemer, "Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is one: and you shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might."[42]

Account Of The Burning Bush


According to Exodus, Yahweh appeared to Moses in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush.[Exodus 3] Yahweh said to Moses, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob."[43] Throughout the discussion between Yahweh and Moses, Moses seems reluctant to attempt to lead Israel out of Egypt. At one point, he said to God, "Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, and tell them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you;' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' What should I tell them?"[44] God replied, "I AM WHO I AM," and he said, "You shall tell the children of Israel this: 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

Yahweh also said to Moses: You shall tell the children of Israel this, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, and this is my memorial to all generations. Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and tell them, 'Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared to me, saying, "I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt; and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, to a land flowing with milk and honey."

- Exodus 3:14-17 (WEB)[45]This introduction to "Yahweh" as the personal name of God associates the divine name with the Hebrew verb "hayah" meaning "to be".[46] "I will be what I will be" indicates "[m]y nature will become evident from my actions."[47] Later in Exodus, God frequently declares that from his actions (such as the ten plagues) Israel and Egypt "shall know that I am Yahweh."[48] Thus, as God, Yahweh is revealed by both his personal name and his mighty deeds in history rather than a list of characteristics.[49]

Goddess Uba

Goddess Uba Image
UBA is the Japanese Goddess of fidelity. She is the spirit of a pine tree in Takasago, which was paired with a pine tree across the sea in Sumiyoshi, whose spirit, Jo, became Uba's husband. The pair had a long and happy marriage, even though they were separated by the sea. In the Noh play "Takasago", Uba and Jo are seen tending to their trees, Uba with a broom and Jo with a rake. The long lives and evergreen nature of pine trees are symbolic of the longevity of their marriage. Uba's name means "old woman."
