We are entering the year 18,005 in the Nyarzirian Calendar on March 19th, 2017. In Ninzuwu, the word for New Year’s is “Zuho,” which also means divinity. Similar to western custom, it is not uncommon for a person to make a personal resolution during this time. Zuho represents divinity, as initiation is eternal. I am always motivated during Zuho and inspired to “master,” in lack of a better word, an aspect of the Art of Ninzuwu in the coming year.
It is quite evident that after undergoing an initiation in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow, a new candidate has many paths that open before them. Perhaps they can undergo training as a Ninzuwu Priest/Priestess by initiating themselves into the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan, or maybe become attuned to the Seven Ghost Dragons. I refuse to waste time tinkering with the admiration of knowledge without applying it. Here are a few suggestions that some may find useful in getting the best in the upcoming year ahead.
Remembering the Dreams of the Crow. One good way to start off the Zuho (New Year) is by memorizing the initiatory incantations found in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow. In this sacred text it mentions the importance of memory:
“I have copied these words faithfully as my Father instructed. They must be remembered for all that which is remembered is alive. If a thing is not remembered it cannot be put into operation. Long before my father and I returned to the land, we learned of fools who read their incantations from books. They were deceived by spirits of the grave and promised many things which never came to pass. The knowledge you possess is the knowledge you remember. If it has not been remembered then it is borrowed, and will be taken away, then searched for again and again. “
For those who have been initiated into the current of the Ivory Tablets, Zuho is a great time to finish the second half of the rite by remembering the appropriate portions of the text.
Learning Ame-no-Ukihashi. Out of all the paths that the Art of Ninzuwu offers, Ame-no-Ukihashi remains to be one of the most obscure. This esoteric martial art encompasses a complete lifestyle and understanding of nature that exists in a world of its own. Ame-no-Ukihashi connects the mind, body, and spirit. It breathes a divine connection in all things. Perhaps, Zuho will mark a time of training in this sacred art.
Incorporating the Nyarzirian Calendar into our Daily Lives. The basic elements of the Nyarzirian Calendar is found in the Yi Jing Apocrypha of Genghis Khan. However, to truly understand this calendar we have to observe its motions in our day-to-day lives. Know Thyself.
Learning the Ninzuwu Alphabet. Working with a letter a day keeps the negativity away! This is a really great way to gain an understanding of how the Art of Ninzuwu works without the words.
Making Ninzuwu a Part of Your Social Networking Life. The internet plays a huge role in today’s society and how people relate to one another. Perhaps, joining the Ninzuwu Community on Facebook and making and effort to discuss some of your experiences is a great way to meat others and gain an understanding of how the path really works.
There are many things that we can do to cultivate our path in the Art of Ninzuwu by just keeping things simple. Every day presents a new opportunity to cultivate our inner being. Zuho
