Greetings! I would like to welcome everyone to the Art of Ninzuwu blog page. If this is your first time here, please feel free to review some of our previous articles. We wish you all the best in your daily endeavors. Have a blessed day!
In just a few days, March 25th 2015, we will be celebrating the Ninzuwu New Year, which is called Zuho, the Vasuh word for “New Year.” In the Nyarzirian calendar this date corresponds to Hahun in the Sign of Amaterasu Ohkami. This will mark year 18,003 in the Ninzuwu calendar. It is the year of Tsukiyomi-no-Mikoto, also known as Istu in Ninzuwu. A year that finds its influence under the helm of Tsukiyomi-no-Mikoto, is one where recognition of the unseen becomes more apparent. Understanding of the unseen influences behind relationships, self-awareness of our own motives and instincts is the prominent energy for the year 18,003. Historically, Zuho is recorded in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow as follows:
“During his travels Xuz fell sick, due to the extreme cold, a task that is difficult for some men traveling from Zuho.”
In Zuho we are reminded of the journey of Xuz and that initiation is eternal. Adherents of Ninzuwu culture are encouraged, as always to perfect their knowledge. Use Zuho (New Year) as a time to work on one of the Nine Dreams that we may not be well-acquainted with. Perhaps, it is time for you to eter the realm of the Ninzuwu, which is only achieved by remembering the Nine Dreams. Some may want to re-initiate themselves, now that they have a deeper understanding of Ninzuwu culture.
Zuho can be celebrated even by those who are outside of Ninzuwu culture. It is said in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow that “without love there is no faith.” This means that a person cannot cultivate themselves spiritually if they have not learned the divine principle of love. Of course, such cultivation is an eternal process. Our fellowman is also a part of nature and should be respected as such. By helping to promote good will in our own lives and in deeper cultivation of the relationships that we are presently involved with, we too are celebrating Zuho.
Those outside of Ninzuwu culture can also take the opportunity to learn about some of the deeper meaning and principles of our heritage by taking the time to read some of our literature or befriending a Ninzuwu themselves. We wish everyone a blessed and prosperous New Year!
