Recently encountered some vicious misconceptions about Urianism, being peddled online as facts, and realized that this misinformation needed to be addressed.
ANU & THE ANUNNAKI:
There are those who believe we worship the ancient Mesopotamian High God, Anu, and/or the Anunnaki (gods of Mesopotamia/Sumer/Babylon). This is a complete misunderstanding of our teachings and a misstatement, either of ignorance or bad intent.
Our view of God is based on the idea that the Supreme Spirit was hinted at or revealed in almost every culture from the beginning... We look at God like looking at a great diamond, with innumerable facets, each facet a face or idea about The Most High. Anu among the Hurrians, Hittites, Babylonians, and Assyrians, or AN among the Sumerians, is seen as merely one facet of a far greater truth, one mask of eternity. In Canaan, EL or EL ELYON, among the Israelites, Yahweh/YHVH, among the Greeks and Romans, Uranus (Ur's Anu) or Hypsistos, Aton or Amen among the Egyptians, Tai Di or Jade Emperor or Shangdi among the ancient Chinese, Allah among the Muslims... etcetera and etcetera...
Each is an idea about a highest being, a high father; though among the Sumerians we also see Nammu (not to be confused with the Babylonian, Tiamat), as a feminine face of the creator. Even among the most primitive tribes of humanity, there has been a consistent idea about a supreme spirit, a Great Spirit or First Father or Mother. The One and Most High God has always been with us, as an idea.
More than this, however, historically it is my belief and the Urian teaching that An/Anu is the root idea of later Near East concepts of Ahura Mazda (Zoroastrian), El among the Canaanites and Jews, and Yahweh among the Israelites, and maybe even be the root of the Greco-Roman, Uranus (Ur-Anu/Ur-On-Noos). This is why we often make the statement, "Ur'ians," for Abraham came from the city of Ur, within Mesopotamia, and we "believe" and were taught by Uriel that he (Abraham) was a worshiper of the Mesopotamian god, An/Anu.
AN means Heaven or Highest, while Anu means The High One or Heavenly One. This god was known, in those days, as being associated with or a parallel of the Canaanite god, EL. We believe this explains the Biblical story of why Abraham found Melchizedek, the king priest of the Canaanite city of Salem, a compatriot, giving a tithe to the priest king from the spoils of Sodom and Gomorrah... because both worshiped the same god, The Highest God.
In conclusion, we view notions of AN or Anu as mere faces of The Supreme Being, or masks; and, ultimately, An/Anu are ideas about God.
Yet, it must be said that every mask or aspect of the Supreme Being has its specific energy or angle, representing one view of The One God. An/Anu, like EL, is experienced as a kindly grandfather, often seen in visions as the archetypical idea of the Hermit (Tarot reference), or a Gandalf like character, very wise and patient... In contrast, Yahweh was very much a passionate and masculine entity, more of a stern dad idea.
In this same way, we see that every true prophet and saint is a facet/face of Immanuel (God With Us), with Yeshua as primary among those. God keeps reaching out to us through humans that are anointed (christ'ed) to bear God's words, even as God forever speaks to us within, through his/it/her Spirit of Wisdom.
Paganism, Other Gods (Anunnaki)?
Certainly, as monotheists, we do not worship the Anunnaki, as in many gods or lesser deities. We are not pagans. Indeed, if you study mythology from culture to culture, there is a tendency in those stories to push aside, supplant, or simply ignore the High One, relegating the First Parent to obscurity... And due to a pattern, we must conclude that this mythological aspect is intentional -- something wants The High One out of the way. Indeed, is it any different today? Certainly humanity, and its rulers (seen and unseen) are ever trying to push God out of the way, replace him/it/her with their vain idols of sensualism, superficiality, and materialism, and unto these sacrificing millions of unborn babies.
Among the Israelites (Jews), however, this tendency was subverted, so that the "gods" were replaced with the idea of angels, and those angels who opposed God and the good were classified as fallen angels and demons. In this, Judaism was successful, in a sense, of saving the High One from being supplanted by lesser entities, at least within their religious teachings.
In short, we see "the gods" as fallen angels, related to The Watchers, the fallen of the book of Enoch. Our holistic/wholistic or universal approach to monotheism, including the embrace of the mystical and theurgical ideas within monotheism, does lend itself to the brand of paganism and New Ageism... But mystical and theurgical practices have always been part of monotheism (prayer is itself like casting a spell).
The founder is not from China, as one rumor states. The originator, who taught Raethan and myself, passed on in 2019. We have always sought to keep this fact unknown, though hinted at frequently over the years, and I have deliberately chosen to go against and break this personal rule. The Scribe is merely her student, however pivotal to what has become Urianism. Each of us, a trio of persons, have played our role, and carry on as best we can.
The founder is not intent on conquering the world. Raethan and myself will be far from this world (having passed on) before Urianism is ever fully realized or any of its political-social goals are achieved. We have not profited from this, we have spent a great deal of money, and have known hate and rejection and mockery for our efforts, not fame or accolades, and neither have we sought this. Our hope is for an epic future for humankind.
Did the founder, do we ourselves, suffer from schizophrenia? This was said outright by one hateful person. Yet, perhaps so. All three of us have experienced paranormal sights, sounds, and sensations, powerful visions and lucid dreams over the years. We have also all wrestled with anxieties, depression, loneliness, and feelings of alienation from family and society. In modern terms, most of the prophets, saints, and visionaries of the past, would be classified as schizophrenic or mentally ill in some fashion... certainly delusional by modern secular standards.
Does the founder, or triune, suffer from Aspergers? No. Yet, given that my beloved nephew killed himself, because of Aspergers Syndrome, and the persecution he was getting from his local community in the form of bullying, the utter hate the critic expressed toward people with this syndrome was personally very offensive. Moreover, their complete contempt toward those with mental illnesses in general, was rather telling of their character.
One accuser critiqued our ideas on science as, in summary, ridiculous. Our firm belief is that science and spirituality do not need to be alienated from each other, but that they need to be comingled. We believe that the spiritual, the metaphysical, the paranormal should be studied scientifically, that altered states of consciousness through the use of etheogens/ethnogens and controlled near-death experiences, might open vistas of truth and levels of reality to humanity that will, in future days, enable humankind to achieve monumental progress. Alternative medicine and spiritualized agriculture (See: Findhorn Experiment) are also ideas that we embrace.
Yet, this said, we are not opposed to hard science, normative medical treatments and studies, but simply believe that the powers of the mind and spirit offer another avenue of exploration. Our main concern or focus, is that of helping humanity to leave earth, explore and colonize the stellar frontiers, and even access something called, "hyperspace," and other levels of existence in general.
I recommend looking into the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan... Indeed, even Nicolas Tesla believed he was in communication with otherworldly entities.
Reasons for this:
>Paranormal phenomenon has measurable and well documented effects, detectable with various devices.
>The existence of otherworldly craft (UFOs, UAPs, etc) are now known and verified by government sources.
>Altered states, meditative states, the power thereof, can be attested from times immemorial, by masters across the globe, and their powerful effects on mental and physical health cannot be denied.
>In India many miraculous acts are frequently achieved by masters of meditation, from slowing the aging process, to going without eating or drinking for very long periods of time. This would tend to indicate validity and tangibility, that should not be ignored.
>The use of etheogens is rooted in the most ancient traditions of humankind, and should not be cast away, but rather approached in a sacred and scientific way, to find the optimal methodology for use, and push the boundaries of human consciousness to the utmost.
>Government and academic studies have found valid incidents of telepathy, remote viewing, and other psychic phenomenon.
The critic targeted our teachings on the Maion (My-On), which is rooted in a very ancient idea, called The Divine Spark. The idea postulates that other than just physical atomic and subatomic particles, there is a spiritual particle, or a divine spark, that is trans-universal, trapped in this universe in the moment of creation. That is, the concept that a sum of extra-universal divine substance was embedded in and entered into our universe at the moment of realization (Big Bang?), and from this all living spirits derive the core of their consciousness (the immortal part of self). The 'ma' attaches itself to an ion within the brain, during the conception/fetal stage of development.
The critic who inspired this post, mentioned a completely fabricated idea about kids being taken from parents, which has never been in our teachings, so I'm not sure where he got it from... Indeed, we are forcefully opposed to the abuse of children in any way. Yet, our teachings do address the idea that, in The Kingdom, orphans would be celebrated, privileged, because they would be raised as Children of the Most High, children of The Kingdom, given the finest education and training, counseled and guided and encouraged to the highest levels of achievement. This is an almost Platonic ideal, like unto the Guardians of the Republic, and I cannot imagine how it could be seen as evil to encourage orphans to be uplifted in such a way by society(?). It is absolutely necessary, as well, in a nation that outlaws most abortions, to have some constructive and positive way to deal with the expanded needs of a much larger orphan population.
Not going to say we don't have some pretty strange and non-traditional views and ideas, and I'm well aware that the whole of our teachings will offend most people for one reason or another, but there seems no need to lie or exaggerate in order to achieve the goal of bashing us.
