Sumer: the Garden of the Goddess in Eden
[See also The Garden of Eden, Paradise: in Sumer!]
The relationship drama of the goddess of love
It is clear from the Sumerian mythology that it is a relationship drama between MAN and WOMAN that takes its course. The story begins when the young woman realises that her tree is occupied by strange beings of power. She is no ordinary woman, however, but the goddess of love, Inanna (from Sumerian Nin = goddess and AnNa = from heaven).
In the Tree of Life: Power through Robbery
The beings that occupy the tree are truly terrifying: the SNAKE, which cannot be tamed, nests in the roots, the trunk is inhabited by LILITH, the dark maiden, and above all - enthroned in the crown of the tree is the lion eagle. It was the heraldic animal of Sumerian rulers and unites in its form the two most dangerous predators of the air and the earth, namely the eagle and the lion. All three creatures are associated with drive and power.
