New Babylon Rises as Beltane Blossoms Bloom at Mardukite Borsippa HQ

Each year, since the inception of the modern Mardukite movement, our organization continues to observe the culturally-hybrid gate-festival of May’s Eve, Beltane or Bealtaine. For over a decade, beginning in 2009, hundreds of practitioners from around the globe have unified and synchronized their “meditations” “workings” and “directed intentions” to not only the acknowledgment of support toward the ancient legacy we represent, but also its continuation.

In 2020, the primary intention emphasized relocation of a more permanent U.S. HQ from the original Mardukite Babylonia site to elsewhere within San Luis Valley — our HQ is intended not only for our research library, but also the publishing office of the Joshua Free Imprint, a counseling center and future chapel for The Founding Church of Mardukite Zuism & Systemology Society. (Additionally, elsewhere in the world, David Zibert placed intentions on collaborating for a French-Canadian branch of the Mardukite Chamberlains, a Mardukite Zuist Temple and Systemological Society. He has been consistently providing French translations of our material for several years.)

HAPPY BELTANE from
Mardukite Borsippa HQ
San Luis Valley

Here we are a year later and the May Blossoms are blooming here on the Apricot tree for Beltane over at the new Mardukite Borsippa HQ.

Apricot trees are one of many species that blossom around the end of April, providing natural philosophers and other more earth-oriented folk with observably indicating Beltane and the turning of the Wheel of the Year. This festival was once an annual staple of other mystical traditions and religions throughout ancient Europe, made especially popular by the Celtic Druids.

The May Pole, long reduced academically to little more than a phallic symbol, actually is representative of the World Tree, or else the Gateway between all Worlds — all Universes.

Beltane 2021 also commemorates six months or turning point since Samhain 2021 and the completed realization of the Mardukite Academy of Systemology — a grand unification of all work by Joshua Free since 1995 into a precise methodology of study and practice traversing three “Grades” — referred to as the “Master Grades” composed of:
–“The Route of Magick and Mysticism” (Grade I, Route A)
–“The Route of Druidism and the Dragon Legacy” (Grade I, Route D)
–“The Route of Mesopotamian Mystery Tradition” (Grade-II) and finally
–“The Route of Mardukite Systemology” (Grade III).

In order to ensure proper duplication of understanding intended by this unification of work — and proper preparation for future higher “Wizard Grades” (IV, V, VI, VII) — Joshua Free candidly and concisely delivered an unrehearsed 48-lecture series live and in person at Borsippa HQ to solidly establish the core of the Mardukite Academy. This series of now legendary lectures, along with all of its supportive materials, is officially known and distributed now as The Complete Mardukite Master Course, available in its entirety for the first time today — in recognition of Beltane 2021 — in both AUDIO and TRANSCRIPT format.

The Way Into The Future: A Handbook for Humanity by Joshua Free
The Way Into the Future: A Handbook for Humanity by Joshua Free

Discover The Secret to Being Human… and The Way Into The Future!

Following a year of uncertainty in the world, the ongoing developments of the underground ‘New Thought’ Systemology division of the Mardukites (made up of a continuing group of dedicated Alumni and Chamberlains) continues to push forward and point THE WAY INTO THE FUTURE!

It’s not every day that someone develops a new spiritual science, then alone an applied spiritual technology that demonstrates THE WAY INTO THE FUTURE!

Here are the answers to what has held Humanity back from achieving its ultimate goals and unlocking the true power of the Spirit and the highest state of Knowing and Being! “The Way Into The Future: A Handbook For Humanity” illuminates a Pathway leading to a true spiritual evolution and the attainment of Planet Earth’s true “metahuman” destiny.

“The Way Into The Future: A Handbook For Humanity” begins with a brief survey of the most ancient writings—the Arcane Tablets—which have shaped Human consciousness for thousands of years. Then it continues by taking a Seeker on an amazing journey of concise, practical and effective spiritual technologies; the product of a decade of underground research and discovery by Joshua Free and the Systemology Society, and which are now publicly visible for the first time!

The Way Into The Future: A Handbook for Humanity by Joshua Free contains excerpts from: Tablets of Destiny, Crystal Clear, Power of Zu and Systemology: The Original Thesis.

Carefully selected by Mardukite Publications Officer, James Thomas, this collection of eighteen critical articles, lecture transcripts and reference chapters by Joshua Free is sure to be not only a treasured part of your personal collection, but also the perfect introduction to the Pathway for friends and loved ones.

  • Wisdom From The Clay
  • Fundamentals of Existence from the Tablets of Destiny
  • The “Beta-Awareness Test”
  • Self-Analysis
  • The “Standard Model” of Systemology
  • Scales and Degrees
  • An Introduction to Kenostic Processing
  • Understanding Patterns and Cycles
  • Subjective Processing
  • Self-Directing Will and Objective Processing
  • Introducing “Systemology 1-8-0”

  • The Meaning of Life
  • Fragmentation and Imprint Handling
  • Mardukite Creeds, Arcane Tablets, Glossary and More!

Drawing from nearly half-a-million words that comprise the complete body of current Systemology literature developed by Joshua Free, now is the time to shine clear light on your own path as you discover… The Way Into The Future!

Mardukite Research into Grade-IV Systemology Continues at Babylon Outpost at Borsippa HQ

Against all odds and in the face of the ever-changing shape of the world, the advanced secret work — to extend upper-level Mardukite Systemology through Grade-IV and beyond — continues through winter at the “Babylon Outpost” (newly relocated to Mardukite Borsippa HQ from the former Babylon R&D site 11 miles away).

(Founding Church of Mardukite Zuism & Systemology Society)

October 2020 marked the year anniversary of the public inception of the Mardukite Academy & Systemology Society — previously operating only in the underground with membership composed of long-standing Mardukite Alumni. This marks one year since the publication of the original Grade-III Mardukite Systemology text by Joshua Free: THE TABLETS OF DESTINY and its companion, CRYSTAL CLEAR — now commemorated with the release of the first official Grade-IV textbook: METAHUMAN DESTINATIONS: PILOTING THE COURSE TO HOMO NOVUS.

The former Mardukite Research Organization (now the Mardukite Academy & Systemology Society) began a migration of its operations to the San Luis Valley (Colorado) in 2017 with acquisition of the original 5-acre R&D site named “Mardukite Babylon” (and later referred to as “Eridu” being our first established presence in “SLV,” now that the main HQ has been relocated).

Joshua Free delivers a 48-lecture “Master Course” to the Mardukite Academy commemorating completion of the “Master Grades” and founding of Borsippa HQ… and they are now all available on CD!

By the age of 25, Joshua Free had already written the Draconomicon and Sorcerer’s Handbook, Druid’s Handbook, Elvenomicon (formerly “Book of Elven-Faerie”) and The Great Magickal Arcanum among countless other unpublished notebooks…

If we consider the early teenage work that began in 1995 with the Draconomicon, then 2020 actually marks Joshua Free’s Silver Anniversary — 25 years active in the esoteric underground and New Age community.

Joshua Free first launched “Mardukite Ministries” (Mardukite Zuism) underground at age 26 — then dedicated the next decade of his life to the “Mardukite Research Organization.”

The work of the “Mardukite Chamberlains” is now collected in total within the Master Edition volume released in 2020NECRONOMICON: THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI LEGACY.

The ongoing quest continues with the new work presented to the Mardukite Academy and the relentless research and discovery pursuits of the Systemology Society to help carry humanity to new heights in the 2020’s.
STAY TUNED.

Mardukite Master Course Grades I-III Hardcover Library Completed

The forthcoming (October 31 2020) arrival of Joshua Free’s commemorative hardcover Master Edition of THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM: A MASTER COURSE IN MAGICK FOR MODERN WIZARDS completes the much anticipated esoteric library collection for the NexGen Truth Seeker of “Mardukite Master Course” (Grade-I through Grade-III) materials.

The most comprehensive single source underground course in magick and metaphysics for both novice and adept alike arrives on October 31 and available in an unlimited hardcover edition for the very first time. In THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM, prolific mystic writer, Joshua Free has developed a revolutionary literary contribution presented in a uniquely non-linear structure, which naturally adapts and evolves to a seeker’s needs. Initiate yourself and gain clear understanding of the harmonic unification of ‘secret knowledge’ known by many labels throughout the ages: magick, occult, esoteric, pseudo-scientific and now, even quantum. This special Master Edition of THE GREAT MAGICAL ARCANUM includes bonus material including the complete text of the SORCERER’S HANDBOOK.

THE TRUTH AGAINST THE WORLD…. Present goals of the Mardukite Movement at the dawn of a new decade include “clarity”—the culmination, discernment and reorganization of the research and discovery that has led to new realizations for Truth; what the truth of the world is and the nature and illusion of systems intertwined to form our reality within this physical universe.

  • Other anthology titles in the Mardukite Master Course for Grade-I through Grade-III:
  • MERLYN’S COMPLETE BOOK OF DRUIDISM (The Druid’s Handbook, Draconomicon, Elvenomicon, Pantheisticon, Pheryllt Researches)
  • NECRONOMICON: THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI LEGACY (Necronomicon/The Complete Anunnaki Bible, Gates of the Necronomicon/Sumerian Legacy/Necronomicon Revelations, Anunnaki Grimoire/Practical Babylonian Magic/Book of Marduk/Maqlu Ritual Book, Anunnaki Tarot)
  • THE SYSTEMOLOGY HANDBOOK (Mardukite Zuism Introduction, Tablets of Destiny, Crystal Clear, The Original Thesis, Power of Zu, Reality Engineering Archives, &tc.)

The single most purpose of the Mardukite Master Course is to ensure, certify and provide professional qualifications for “mastering” an understanding of the materials in the same way that an artist “masters” their craft. The complete Mardukite Master Course spans three Grades of knowledge and is given only to those Seekers that first properly worked through all three Grades, and may then be rightfully considered Masters of this knowledge. Extents of such “mastery” should prove readily obvious (objectively), lending to increased qualities of Self-Actualization, personal leadership and the certainty to manage and instruct Mardukite Groups!

MardukiteMaster Course by Joshua Free

Mardukite Master Course includes materials from over 30 books by Joshua Free delivered in 3,600 pages across four hardcover volumes.

Anunnaki Bible New Standard Zuist Edition sets “new standard” for future of Mesopotamian Neopaganism

Now commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Complete Anunnaki Bible, Joshua Free and the Mardukite Chamberlains look to shape the face of modern history again with a “New Standard Zuist Edition” of the ANUNNAKI BIBLE to plot the future of the “Zuism” movement and set a “new standard” for the future of Mesopotamian Neopaganism and beyond!

Here is the ancient Sumerian Anunnaki origins of all known religious systems on the planet today.

Here is the cuneiform tablet origin of the Judeo-Christian, Hermetic and Zoroastrian texts; records that predate better-known scriptures of the “Holy Bible” by 2,000 years or more!

Here is the “original” Anunnaki Bible-separating “prehistory” from “history”-collecting the most ancient writings on the planet from Babylonian sources in Mesopotamia. Here is the recovery and incorporation of wisdom from the Ancient Near East into a modern tradition of Babylonian Neopaganism known for over a decade as Mardukite Zuism.

Here is the New Standard Zuist Edition of the classic text by world renowned Joshua Free; an abridged version of “The Complete Anunnaki Bible” edited for the Church of Mardukite Zuism.

Now, more than a decade since the “Mardukite Core” materials by Joshua Free began circulating in the underground, a new edition of the cornerstone volume has arrived, uncovering ancient cuneiform scriptures from the heart of Mesopotamia and revealing the near-prehistoric legacy of the Sumerians and Babylonians as never before.

The purpose of the “NSZE” version of the ANUNNAKI BIBLE is to simplify a new futurist presentation of the original cuneiform tablet translations from The Complete Anunnaki Bible–the result of over half-of-a-decade of intensive explorations by the Mardukite Research Organization (Mardukite Chamberlains/Council of Nabu) from 2008-2015.

For the first time in the modern history, humanity can access this collection of the most concise cunieform scripture translations available–composing, themselves, the most ancient “Bible” known to mankind; and one that went on to inspire the religious and spiritual systems on the planet Earth for thousands of years thereafter.

This edition of the Anunnaki Bible presents a “new standard” for officially incorporating a solid modern religious tradition of “Mardukite Zuism” philosophy and its Systemology of applied spiritual technology for the future. The full text of “Mardukite Zuism: A Brief Introduction” supplements the most critical tablets from the Mardukite Archives, provided in a new chronological format never before seen!

Great care was taken in selecting and arranging the most critical elements of ancient Mesopotamian literature to present this universally workable edition (once exclusively a “Mardukite” version of these materials). In doing so, this special ANUNNAKI BIBLE NSZE applies equally to all modern factions, revival/reconstruction efforts, historical or academic pursuits and Mesopotamian Neopaganism. To aid study and research, a Seeker may still refer to The Complete Anunnaki Bible for supplemental commentary.

The Mardukite “Anunnaki Bible: Cuneiform Scriptures (New Standard Zuist Edition)” represents concise historic archaeological foundations for a new generation of Chamberlains, Mardukite Ministers, Zuist Priests and Priestesses, and other Systemologists around the world. With this special premiere hardcover keepsake edition available as a the perfect personal companion for the years to come–you won’t want to miss it!

Deep Roots of Modern Mesopotamian Neopaganism; Origins of Mardukite Zuism from 2008 Publications

While the efforts of “Mardukite Zuism” have become public over the past year, many are unaware that origins of this brand of “Mesopotamian Neopaganism” were first presented officially in 2009, embedded within various works by Joshua Free. Even this vision, along with the premise for “NexGen Systemology” were all presented quite blatantly to those within his inner circle, starting in 2008. In fact, if one were to investigate some of the more advanced applications and suggestions for the “Crystal Dawn” presented in the 1990’s while still writing as “Merlyn Stone” (and contained within the appendix of the most recent edition of The Sorcerer’s Handbook), one will eventually realize that this was the planned direction of things all along… and now realized in 2020 as the result of a quarter-of-a-century underground journey culminated by this 25th Silver Anniversary of the Joshua Free’s public presentations and underground involvement.

As with any tradition, system, methodology or brand of new age NewSpeak, the “Mardukites” and its “Systemology” has come up against its share of scrutiny, biased reviews and blatant attacks over the past 12 years–and we have survived, working now–right this moment–to secure a permanent foundation for the organization and headquarters only 11 miles southwest of our existing Mardukite Babylon Ancient Astronomy Primitive Reserch Center and Preserve. More new on this is expected to unfold very soon and progressively through the next several years.

MARDUKITE ZUISM & SYSTEMOLOGY IS HERE TO STAY!

It is important for us to make note of this, because those who are otherwise unfamiliar with our work may simply be googling or looking at news articles, which at the time of writing this blog are all focused around the events and politics surrounding “Icelandic Zuism” and the “Zuist Church of Iceland” of which we, as the Church of Mardukite Zuism, have no official ties with–in fact there have been no communications at all between the two groups. Perhaps the only thing that associates the two together is that they are bother referred to as “Zuism” or “Zuist” traditions and emphasize an interest in Mesopotamian Neopaganism; although, as we would expect, the Icelandic Zuists are essentially a neo-Sumerian interpretation of a potential modern Anunnaki religion in contrast to our Mardukite Babylonian one. In either case, there is much evidence to suggest that the Icelandic Zuist tradition does not have much longer to go as an official organization–its leadership already usurped once and most of its focus on the national “tax” laws regarding religion in Iceland. Most of the information to be found outside of “Mardukite Zuism” including popular pdfs on “Zuist Doctrines” &tc. are actually not issued by the Zuist Churches and instead have been developed by independent practitioners that work to support their own denominations of “Zuism.”

When we look back through the contents of the Mardukite Esoteric Library by Joshua Free, it is easy to find early traces of real substance on which the latest developments of “Mardukite Zuism” and Systemology have all stemmed from… some dating back to the original writings collected for the Mardukite Research Organization (Mardukite Chamberlains) in 2009 and which appeared in the introductory material for the original Anunnaki Bible by Joshua Free, particularly as found in the anthology known as “NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE” or “THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI BIBLE” published by the Joshua Free Imprint.

This was most recently added to the 900+ page hardcover Master Edition anthology titled “NECRONOMICON: THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI LEGACY.”

NECRONOMICON The Complete Anunnaki Legacy (2020 Master Edition) by Joshua Free

Everyone thinks they pretty much have a handle of what’s going on in existence and the topic of the Necronomicon is certainly no exception. People “believe” they know what they know about any given topic and they base that on their own perceived “experience.” They continue to validate things from within that knowledge and things continue to be real within that experience. That’s “reality.” That’s what you perceive to be “real,” meaning that your way of perceiving the world will continue to conform to your beliefs about your world, as has been proven time and time again. Energetic currents that exist within all things, whether living or not, this is what you only experience at its most condensed states here in the “physical world” of forms. Therefore, until you remove all filters in self-honesty, you cannot perceive things for what they really are, and semantics and terminology serves as a common stumbling block for the psyche.” –Joshua Free, introduction to Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.

Elsewhere in Joshua Free’s “Introduction” to the NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE or COMPLETE ANUNNAKI BIBLE (and NECRONOMICON: THE COMPLETE ANUNNAKI LEGACY) we read:

“As above; so below. As within; so without. As the Universe; so the self. Know Thyself. Heaven and Hell come from within one’s own mind. Life is a mirror – You observe what you reflect. The sciences and technologies shall darken everywhere the hopes of Men. All relationships not in a state of Agreement shall fall. Life experience is subject to belief and belief solidifies, manifests and conditions reality. Self-realization begins with detachment from all things, all systems, all beliefs, all dead memories. You are not your physical body. In a world of depersonalization, You must demonstrate your own self control and determination to regain the freedom of the Self. To be freed from the limitations of the world is to make possible the liberation of self in the individual and fusion with the All.”

NexGen A.T. Actualized Technicians (Systemology Wizards)

Whenever you affirm: “I am…” and add “something” – this is a form of “enslavement to consciousness.” The true “I-of-Self” is not restricted to any conception of “persona-personality-programming” that you have “experienced” in the surface reality or world. QED: the true “I of you” has never been “thirsty,” never been “angry”. Do you want to prove it? The next time you have this “experience,” observe it from self. The very idea that you can do this proves it is not “real.” If it was from the “I-of-you” it would not be a “thing” to be “observed” by you at all. It would be you! If you can “artificially” create experiences in your mind, what does that tell you? Self is to be found at the core of your being. It is you who is doing the “discovering” or “finding.” It is the self in-and-of self. You are “here in the kNow” and when you remove all “things” you find self. It’s as simple as that. There is nothing to be “out there” looking for at all. Only when you can see yourself from a point of “self-honesty” can you see you, or anything else for that matter, for what is “real.” –Joshua Free, introduction to Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible.

New Era of the Crystal Dawn Begins! Beltane Gate 2020 (Part Three) – Necronomicon Gates, Mardukite Zuism & Systemology

THE JOSHUA FREE IMPRINT – 2020 COLLECTION

Whether scholarly, neopagan, Druidic or following the esoteric instructions for “Necronomicon” gatework following the ancient Anunnaki tradition observed in Babylon by the original Mardukite Zuists, the annual BELTANE period has always held a special significance, particularly regarding Joshua Free’s ongoing development of the modern Mardukite Zuism movement and its evolving futurist metahuman spiritual technology known as Systemology.

NECRONOMICON The Complete Anunnaki Legacy (2020 Master Edition) by Joshua Free

THIS BLOG IS CONTINUED FROM TWO EARLIER POSTS:
Part One on mardukite.com
Part Two on necrogate.com

Modern significance of BELTANE in connection to the Anunnaki or Necronomicon regards the “North Gate” or “Celestial Gate” of the “Northern Star”—what was once most visibly aligned to DRACO and which is now seen in direct relation to the BIG DIPPER or GREAT BEAR constellation—all of which is addressed in —Mardukite Liber-R, contained in the “Necronomicon Revelations” paperback or “Gates of the Necronomicon” hardcover by Joshua Free or ; also within the hardcover omnibus anthology, “Necronomicon: The Complete Anunnaki Legacy” as excerpted here:

Grade-II Route of Mesopotamia & Grade-I Route of Druidism and Dragon Legacy

“Simon’s research into the ‘Celestial Gate’ is intriguing. He suggests that the ‘Great Bear’ constellation is the ‘astral key’ that activates the Gate from the earth perspective, when the bear ‘hangs from its tail.’ How curious—this actually happens every day! But, it is not only the event itself, but the timing or threshold that is significant—it is when the remaining ‘stars are aligned’ that the Gate is functional from our side.”

“Where much has been written elsewhere concerning Samhain—October 31—when this ‘Celestial Gate’ is most accessible from the other side, it is really at the other half of the year, at Beltane—April 30—when this alignment happens shortly before midnight, a natural ceremonial time for such mystical work. If this is correct, it suggests a convergence in ‘earth-time’ with ‘heaven-time.’ Ceremonial execution would then require a delicate calculation of sun-cycles, lunar-cycles and stellar-cycles. So, now the seeker must put the ‘gate-theory’ into perspective. Not only is it something that happens “naturally” on a daily basis, it is observed (and apparently ceremonially effective) only under the most opportune times, and then too, subject to a calculation that might be mistaken. Where then, does the fear come from for ‘leaving this gate open for too long’…?”

MARDUKITE ZUISM (the spiritual tradition of Mardukite Ministries) Founded by Joshua Free in 2008

Elsewhere in Joshua Free’s Liber-R, the Lovecraftian connection is further cemented:

“A quick consolidation of Lovecraftian lore combined with Simonian and Mardukite ‘Gate’ research and lore, all point toward a the threshold time taking place during the ancient annual ‘Beltane’ festival. Popularized by the Celts and Druids, there does appear to be some ‘otherworldly’ significance here. Lovecraft explains that the time is optimal for receiving primordial knowledge via the ‘whisperer in darkness’—strangely echoing the ceremonial magician’s ‘voice in the silence,’ alluded to in various transcendental occult materials. Lovecraft writes in his prose of the same name, titled: “The Whisperer in Darkness”—
“Former experience had told him May Eve – the hideous Sabbat night of underground European legend – would probably be more fruitful than any other date, and he was not disappointed…”

The Complete Book of Marduk by Nabu (Hardcover 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition) Joshua Free Publishing Imprint

Developments of the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Organization) continued on into the years that followed the original Beltane observation and the development of “Necronomicon: The Anunnaki Bible” in 2009. The following Beltane 2010 was just as monumental for the developments of the Mardukite esoteric research library. The following is excerpted from the “Mardukite Chamberlains Chronicles” kept during their second year of research and discovery of the Grade-II Core. The full text is included in the Mardukite Master Course, of which Grade-II appears in the appendix of “Necronomicon: The Complete Anunnaki Legacy.”

ORIGINAL 2009 BROADCAST:

Mardukite Beltane (May 1) 2010 observations were synchronized with the release of two very important additions to Grade-II; GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON (Liber-50) and THE BOOK OF MARDUK BY NABU (Liber-W), which found its way into later editions of NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE as Tablet-W.

Liber-50 increases an effective working understanding of the basic nature and functions of the “Star-Gate-System” esoterically embedded beneath the structure of the ancient Mardukite Babylonian systemology. The discourse includes critical information regarding the evolution of Babylonian (and Mardukite) culture from a former “Sumerian” one. Yet, when we compare the lore to the earlier delivered Grade-I work—particularly the Liber-D Series—it is clear that Babylon is the absolute “end all” of the Seeker’s pursuits in unifying an understanding of the Human Condition across the timeline of history. In fact, in Babylon, we witness a significant turning point affecting nearly all cultural traditions, beliefs and spirituality emerging after.

Once a seeker has been “initiated” into the great “Mesopotamian Mysteries” of the Ancient School and Babylonian temple of Nabu to Marduk, only then do we find reason to believe we can tap into even higher realizations of Awareness. It is only when the Seeker has approached true understanding hidden beneath the tradition explored in Grade-II in relative Self-Honesty that there is any chance of gleaning the greatest kept secrets of Babylon—the ancient equivalent to a global conspiracy that is still very present with us today, and which becomes the primary subject of the Grade-III material of “Mardukite Systemology.”

New Era of the Crystal Dawn Begins! Beltane Gate 2020 (Part One) – Druidry, Mardukite Zuism & Systemology Archive

OVER TEN YEARS AGO the newly formed band of “Mardukite Chamberlains” (“Mardukite Research Organization”)—members of the underground “spiritual,” “occult” and “esoteric archaeology” community—received instructions during meditation for a synchronized global meditation working that would unleash a “New Age” of global consciousness on planet Earth toward the reconstruction of the “Anunnaki paradigm” in everyday life and the establishment of a “New Babylon” order in dedication to the “New Thought” principles of human potential and spiritual evolution gleaned from the most ancient tablets on the planet… and that was back in 2009…

Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism: A Master Course in Druidry for Modern Druids by Joshua Free (2020 Master Edition, 7 books in one)

Here we are in 2020 and we take a moment to look back on the legacy of Beltane both ancient and modern in this miniseries of blogposts!

“The Belteine or Beltane festival is named such after the ‘Fires of Bel’ or ‘Belinos’—most likely a remnant of Bel Marduk or known elsewhere in the Canaanite mutation of ‘Baal.’ It was actual on the dawn of an ancient Belteine when the Tuatha d’Anu arrived in Ireland and set fire to their own ships. The most commonly known tradition of May Day is the ‘May Pole’—a symbol of the ‘World Tree’ that is traditionally danced around while weaving ribbons hung from the top. ‘May Day’ is, of course, May 1st, though the festival begins the night before—on May’s Eve—with the construction of two large bonfires built side-by-side, which are then consecrated to Bel before set aflame. Ancient Celts marched their cattle in procession between these two flames as they led them out to pasture for the year. Some evening observances may be held, however this following rite is typically observed at noon.”
—from The Elven-Druid Grimoire contained in The Elvenomicon by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.

It is in many ways possible that proto-Druid and Celtic observations of “Beltane” resulted from the most significant event of the ancient nearly prehistoric legacy: the arrival of the Tuatha d’Anu (or Tuatha de Dannan) in Western Europe.

“Lore suggests that the ‘Children of the Stars’ [Tuatha d’Anu] arrived in Keltia on ‘Beltane’—May’s Eve—approximately five thousand years ago. The race or clan was socially represented by four primary ‘leaders’ or ‘warriors,’ each from a different city or capital in their ‘homelands’—wherever this might be, as the subject turns to the domain of legend…”
Druid’s Handbook by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.

“They [Tuatha d’Anu] arrived there on Beltane (May Day or May’s Eve) ‘concealed in a magical fog or mist.’ While the European mainland lay off to the East and South of Ireland, the Tuatha D’Anu arrived from the North and West of the Island, settling first in the mountains of Western Ireland. This led many to believe they were the ‘People of the North’ or that they came from somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. But, their ships, on the other hand, were said to be of a “sky-nature,” which somehow caused an uncanny solar eclipse for the first three days of their arrival…”
The Elvenomicon by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.

Beltane is an unusual festival or annual cross-quarter event that is literally called the “Fires of Bel” or “Bel-teine.” The name “Bel” for “lord” or “god” being an obvious import from the Ancient Mystery School. In Celtic and Druidic tradition, this festival stood apart from all of the others as the most supreme “Fire Festival” in Keltia, observed with a bonfire, which could only be ignited by the most esoteric means:

“Many scholars today are of the mind that the Druid’s Gem ‘no larger than an apple’ was manufactured from glass—a substance linking the item to both the Motherhood of Avalon, residing on the ‘Isle of Apples’ (alternatively, the ‘Isle of Glas’ or ‘Glastonbury’) and the Welsh alchemical Druid fire-workers—the ‘Pheryllt.’ It has been further suggested by certain scholars, notably Lady Flavia Anderson in ‘The Ancient Secret,’ that the original serpent’s eggs were spheres of clear crystal used to light the Druidic Beltane ‘needfires’ via focused sunlight.”
Druid’s Handbook by Joshua Free, also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism.

In nearly all cultures that observe it, the annual Beltane threshold on the eve of May is a bridge between worlds, a critical doorway or bridge that greatly mirrors the significances held in regard to Samhain—taking place in “earth-time” exactly opposite in the year on the eve of November. In fact, a note regarding this even appears in The Draconomicon by Joshua Free (also available in Merlyn’s Complete Book of Druidism), stating “Although these types of evocation seem typical of Samhain, esoteric lore also indicates that the Beltane Gate is actually more accessible from “our” side, at the exactly opposite “peak” of the year.”

The Power of Zu by Joshua Free

Keys to Increasing Control of the Radiant Energy in Everyday Life

Right on the cusp of the new 2020s decade, modern Mardukite and Systemology founder Joshua Free held a special NexGen conference during the Winter Solstice (December 2019)–and for the first time in the history of the NexGen Systemology Society (NSS) even invited those with no previous experience with materials from the Mardukite Esoteric Research Library, promising to deliver an exceptionally critical introductory series of lectures that would be applicable to all individuals, attendees and Seekers, no matter what level of development and actualized Awareness they had formerly achieved. The result of this:

TABLETS OF DESTINY: USING ANCIENT WISDOM TO UNLOCK HUMAN POTENTIAL (Liber-One)

CRYSTAL CLEAR: THE SELF-ACTUALIZATION MANUAL & GUIDE TO TOTAL AWARENESS (Liber-2B)

CRYSTAL CLEAR by JOSHUA FREE (available in hardcover and paperback)


FROM THE INTRODUCTION BY REED PENN:

We are standing now at the cusp of a true “New Age” for humanity—standing in witness to the very first tears of light on the horizon of the Crystal Dawn. Sparks of clear light from a forthcoming Crystal Age peek out to awaken the first seeds and cells on Earth to a new realization, signaling the inception of a Coming Race, one that undeniably represents Human Destiny: the evolutionary future of the Human Condition.

MARDUKITE ZUISM (the spiritual tradition of Mardukite Ministries) Founded by Joshua Free in 2008

This future may be shaped in Self-Honesty only by the highest caliber “spiritual technologies” at our disposal—methods that only a small esoteric demographic of the population has kept a possession of, and which is markedly only being developed, refined and radiated into this existence by those few who are “in the know.”

Evident that our society is fast approaching a glass ceiling is everywhere—limitation of the Human Condition fixed solely to external technologies, low degrees of Awareness and faulty education; all of which have led our present state of the Human Condition toward its inevitable zero point. And the mantra that seems to be rising up from the underground voices is unmistakable: #EvolveOrDie

At every turn of our attention we are faced with more and more problems resulting from grievous errors long past by previous generations—and their vision of truth. When does the old cycle end? Where are the new solutions? How do we arrive at the next evolution of Humanity and the unfoldment of its latent potentials buried within? When do we rise up in acceptance of our own spiritual destiny and become worthy receptacles “in the know”?

NexGen A.T. Actualized Technicians (Systemology Wizards)

Mardukite Zuism—and its applied spiritual philosophy known as Systemology*—has appeared now on the scene for the 21st century, very literally, to provide the map to that “know.” Joshua Free has pointedly demonstrated this—with crystal clarity—throughout various texts providing a brand new Esoteric Research Library to support the “Mardukite Systemology” and “Mardukite Zuist” paradigm.

Crystal Clear by Joshua Free

Mardukite Systemology is based on an expert systematization of ancient wisdom into lore that we now call the “Standard Model”—or else the “Mardukite Standard ZU Model of Systemology” and a host of other names. It demonstrates an interconnectivity between Infinity at one end of a continuum with Infinity at the other end, and through each and every spectrum between and all levels and layers and degrees of potential existence. This very continuum of interconnectedness is referred to as the “ZU-line” in modern literature and spiritual philosophies of Mardukite Zuism and Mardukite Systemology. It would, in fact, be quite difficult to fully appreciate the “Standard Model” of Mardukite Systemology—or effective apply any of its philosophies and spiritual technologies—without first having a better understanding of this word we have begun tossing around—“ZU”…

COMMUNICATION AND CONTROL OF ENERGY AND POWER
The Magic of Will & Intention

by Joshua Free
Mardukite Systemology Liber-2C
FIRST EDITION PAPERBACK
Proper communication means successful manifestation of will and intention to the highest level of cause; but improper handling of control leads to becoming an effect, trapped by one’s own thought-forms, thought-habits and reactive-responses automated by the systems of the biochemical genetic organism that an individual identifies with in the space-time of this existence. And now we have the solutions!
