Meaning Of MaghrebPlace Name Variations: Maghreb, Maghrite, Maghribe, Westmoreland...
People Name Variations: Maghrebi, Magarba, Mograbians, Westmoringas... 1. In 1886, Reclus states that Maghreb is an Arabic word meaning "western land." (1)
Maghreb is ma + ghreb. Another Arabic word, El-Gharb (el + gharb), means " the west." (2)
Maghreb and El-Gharb are used to refer to Morocco. 2. Writing in the late 1700's Volney said within the last fifty or sixty years, the peasants of Tunis, Algiers, and Morocco who went to Egypt and Syria to fight in their wars, referred to themselves under the common name of Magarba and Mograbians (Men of the West). (3)
Thus, the Maghgreb, "the Western Land" and El-Gharb, "the west," have been used to refer to an area much larger than Mauritania/Morocco. Mauretania actually did once cover a much larger area than present-day Morocco. (See previous message). 3. In1898, the natives of Morocco were referring to Morocco as "Maghrib el Aksa," an Arabic phrase which means 'the furthest west." (4) What is considered to be the west or the western land varies according to a person's geographical location and varies according to a person's awareness of surrounding lands. This has happened to many groups of people on many occasions. In UC#823, we learned how the definition of the "north abyss" changed several times. 4. As stated in recent messages, words properly used as identifiers, carry multiple, non-contradictory meanings as a whole and in their root components, just as water has meaning and so does hydrogen and oxygen, which brings greater understanding to what water is fundamentally, primordially, primitively, originally.
So now we look at one of the components of Maghreb.
Magh comes from Makh and means the plain, level, balance, meadow, mid-way and the place of fulfillment Magh pertains to the level of the equinox which is equal, which is mid-way, thus there are two Maghs which are places of balancing fulfillment just as there are two equinoxes - two turning points where everything flips. (5) What is that fulfillment? Clearly in the wild, wild western lands of the world it is fulfillment of upheaval into darkness and now is the time of the fulfillment of Earth into a wiser wonderful eastern land.
MoroccoPlace Name Variations: Maracco, Marocco, Morocco, Maroksh, Maraksh, Marrakesh, Marrakush...
People Name Variations:Maruecos, Marrocos... Maracco is the correct spelling. Morocco is incorrect per Morse. (6)
Marocco is the correct spelling per Taylor. (7) In 1819, Morse said Arabs, or the Moors of the early nineteenth century, call Maracco, Maroksh. (8)
1. Morocco is a Spanish corruption derived from the city of Maraksh, Marrakesh, or Marrakush, the capital, which means 'the adorned' city. In the sixteenth century, Spaniards called the inhabitants of Marakesh by the name of Maruecos or Marrocos, a name afterwards extended to denote the whole nation. (9) 2. In Babylonian legend the person presiding over the creation of mankind was a woman named Omoroca. This is the Great Mother who at first was Mother-Earth. (10) Once we combine understandings from this message and the previous message plus understandings Of Het-Heru/Hathor-Nut, we remember the horizon as representative of the equinoxes. Twice each day there is upheaval and fulfillment as the Sun travels above and below the horizon (the daily equator). Het-Heru, the Great Mother, gives birth to the Sun at morning and swallows/reconceives the Sun at night. Thus Het-Heru is giving birth to mankind as Omoroca is said to do.
This dual event takes place at many other intervals such as twice yearly when the Sun crosses Earth's equator and takes place twice every Great Year at the midway point when certain constellations cross the celestial equator.
The transition from the Piscean Age into the Aquarian Age is the time of the equinox when Great Mother of The Waters gives birth to renewing humanity and everything flips again like a switch in the night that transforms blackness into light.
