  1. From what I read in Gilgamesh and history of Sumeria, the Gods were in many ways like human beings. They worked and toiled the fields, and they ate and drank like human beings. So apparently there is a fine line between human beings and Gods, for in Gilgamesh, only one God apparently attained life everlasting. I hope I am not speaking too soon, too much. I am only trying to figure out the connections here, which are still a mystery to me. I have been thinking much on the story and also the history I have now read and other things. I love solving mysteries, and I am trying to discern the message the story holds, or the lesson as it were. It is a complex story, involved largely with birth and death. Such an intriguing mystery.

      1. And likely our own life context under which we are reading anything. I have given a lot of thought over the many years as to this issue of immortality, and I was thinking how the great rulers and kings and politicians strove to build lasting monuments (or their subjects did for them). But in the end result, over many centuries, it has been the everyday man who survived – the man who plowed the fields, the seamstress who stitched clothing in the light of the evening, the person who, though he or she might have been a victim of the powers that were, survived in all the corners of the world. THEY seem to have been the cornerstones of civilization, for today, just as thousands of years ago, they still plow the fields and work to keep the earth alive and flourishing, It is amazing that no one recognized or build monuments to them.

  2. I just read, as it were, the history of Zeus, and how he feared immortality. Gilgamesh longed for it, as did most of the humans and even the Gods, so it is interesting that at least one God feared it. Boy, it gets more interesting as I continue to read each day on the history, the myths and legends, the geography, philosophy and spirituality. I think of going to school as a youngster and teen, and how dry and meaningless some of these subjects were. As I grew into an adult and began to discover some sorts of contexts, these subjects began to come alive in many different ways, and now, in this time of my life, it seems more important and useful than at any other time. I am so glad I discovered all of this good teaching. Before, it seemed that many things of the everyday world were troubling me, and now I have a larger context in which to view them and they don’t really seem so significant after all. This story has, in one way or another, repeated itself over many lifetimes, and for all we know, we might have lived in some of those. Reading the stories of the Gods and humans, I think anything could have been possible.
