Enlil Mesopotamian Destiny – Fate
Enlil (Lord Air,) a supreme deity and chief of the Gods who granted fates and kingships, was depicted as half bird and half human. Lord Wind ruled agriculture, social conventions, hurricanes, and gentle winds. His word had ultimate authority.
As the keeper of the Mes, Enlil blows in from the east to give you an insight into dharma, your destiny. Allow the invisible winds of Enlil to enliven the fires of your divine imagination and steer you in the right direction. Just like the ancient creation myths, do not readily accept things at face value. Question authority whenever new information is presented.
When embarking on new journey, or when starting a new enterprise, the forces of nature can be chaotic. If Enlil appears ready to flood your new venture, this suggests that old thoughts and ideas must be destroyed before new possibilities can germinate and grow. There is divine timing behind all events.
According to ancient mythology recorded on cuneiform tablets unearthed in the area once known as Mesopotamia (Iran-Iraq,) chaos and darkness ruled the universe before the advent of civilization. Over time, exalted gods of nature were personified, and harmony gradually returned to our planet. An was the supreme deity of the heavens. An, the sky, and Ki, the earth, gave birth to Enlil, the executive ruler of Air.
The Sumerians occupied the southeastern region of Mesopotamia, meaning, “land between the rivers,” Tigris and the Euphrates. This fertile crescent of land, located in an arid desert, was ideal for agriculture and home to a great civilization. The Sumerians made supreme advancements in the use of language, writing, mathematics, architecture, astronomy, irrigation, and property ownership. But was Mesopotamia actually the “cradle of civilization?”
While modern technology often debunks ancient timetables and myths using sophisticated tools such as radio carbon dating, the evidence also shows human fascination with the inexplicable mysteries of nature. Evidence of advanced civilizations predating Mesopotamia by thousands of years, continue to be unearthed including; Gobekli Tepe (11,500 BCE) in Turkey, Dvārakā of the western coast of India (9000BCE), and the Clovis people’s of the Americas (13,500). Putting this into a time perspective, “There’s more time between Gobekli Tepe and the Sumerian clay tablets [etched in 3300 B.C.,] than from Sumer to today,”
Then “something happened.” Some scholars believe there was a cataclysm at the end of the Younger Dryas that destroyed all civilizations. Myths prevail that survivors of this disaster were elevated to God status as they traveled and resettled throughout the darkened world, including the lands of Mesopotamia. 
According to these tablets, the first-born son separated his parents; An laid claim to the heavens as he separated from the earth, leaving the powerful Enlil to rule the atmosphere, while his brother Enki, was charged as the keeper of the waters. The separation of elements caused personified-gods to rise from the primeval mud and prepare the earth for human activity. Slaves were also created to service the Gods who grew tired of tilling the land with Enlil’s hoe.
Each community had it’s own ruling God that was appointed by the all-powerful Enlil. From his sacred temple on the mountaintop in Nippur, he administered the Mes; decrees from the Gods that outlined social structure and duties. Admirable traits included war and destruction, implying that for better or worse, all human behavior was divinely inspired. Unable to live up to his own standards, Enlil was banished to the underworld for committing rape, which fathered the concept of good and evil. Humans stopped living in harmony with nature, overpopulation occurred, and according to the favored historical text, the Epic of Gilgamesh, a great flood destroyed civilization.
