Lilith, Lilitu... Eat your Apples!
Non-Conformity, Free Will, Independence, Sexuality, Rebellion, Justice, Magicks, Night, Winds and Storms, Owls.
Royal, Divine status. Symbolised by serpentine crown and ring. Holder of the ring and rod of power, she is one of the original gods.
Lilith, she was made from the same earth equally, just as Adam. Her purpose apparently was for his wife, but being made of the same earth Lilith refused to lay with him or beneath him, thus he refused to acknowledge her presence and her equality. Adam did not leave Lilith, with God casting her out by angels.No! Lilith left of her own accord, she was the epitomy of the first Free Will. When both God and Adam insisted they both lay together, in Lilith's refusal she reveals Gods secret name and leaves Eden to the Reed Sea (Red Sea) and becomes independent in her own right. Obviously preferring solitude and eternal name calling and damnation through history far more preferable to her then prison paradise. Hence why she has become demonised after this time.. For we are not to know that, if they are to succeed and life stays the same. Remarkably, her story in the bible is reminiscent of the mythos of Isis revealing Ra's secret name. Another example of why ancient texts are also more preferable for true mythos. Because Adam is left all alone in the Garden of Eden, he did complain to God the only company he had was animals (thats what happens when you mistreat your wife, you are left all alone, see the bible does teach you something!). Thus, Eve was created from Adams rib unlike Lilith who was from the same clay mould. Take from this what you must, but this explains theyr is more than one race here, literally.
The female embodiment of the devil, she can be portrayed as the serpent who offered Eve the apple from the tree of knowledge. The inherent 'evil' that is found in woman (but never man, think about that girls). But luckily, that is just one story and that story is very debatable and easily contested if we look deeper and into more ancient texts and even contemporary interpretations. Theyr is only one kind of people who demoralise her, those who are afraid of theyr Gods higher authority. Lilith, the Goddess of Love and War, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, the Creatrix of divine and sacred feminine. Her Spirit is great and was once known as Isis, Ishtar, Asherah, Anath. Akin to Aphrodite, in Her wildness and search for Justice, She is known as Kali.
I have an interpretation of my own that adds another light upon Lilith for those who call her child killer or goddess of abortions. For a woman, a mother to become pregnant and ready to bear childe, sometimes it does not work and not all is quite right with unborn childe or mothers life, so the unborn baby will naturally abort and miscarry. Lilith is the Goddess mother who takes care of these mothers and unborn children. An angel of the unbirthed and undead. Making her so very needed for females and babies, not the other way around.
Lilith is found throughout history, in Gilagamesh and the Huluppu tree, Babylonian, Syrian, Aramic, Persian, Kabbalistic, European folklores and mythos. In the hebrew texts (isaiah 34:14) Lilith is referred to as the 'Liliths'. Ponder that peoples! Our true history is right in our faces if one looks.
Who's that there?
Take a good look.
Lilith? Who is that?
Adam's wife, his first. Beware of her.
Her beauty's one boast is her dangerous hair.
When Lilith winds it tight around young men
She doesn't soon let go of them again.
(1992 Greenberg translation, lines 4206–4211)
After Mephistopheles offers this warning to Faust, he then, quite ironically, encourages Faust to dance with "the Pretty Witch". Lilith and Faust engage in a short dialogue, where Lilith recounts the days spent in Eden.
Faust: [dancing with the young witch]
A lovely dream I dreamt one day
I saw a green-leaved apple tree,
Two apples swayed upon a stem,
So tempting! I climbed up for them.
The Pretty Witch:
Ever since the days of Eden
Apples have been man's desire.
How overjoyed I am to think, sir,
Apples grow, too, in my garden.
(1992 Greenberg translation, lines 4216 – 4223)
