I would like to define Luciferianism in the non-theistic sense and hopefully prompt a little discussion with it if anyone is interested.

"The significant symbol of wisdom given to us by research is what I refer to as Lucifer, the bringer of light. Everybody is searching for perception; wisdom is the child of Lucifer." - Michael Ford Michael Ford
The Chaldean astrologers, the Egyptian priests, the Indian Brahmans; they are all children of Lucifer.

-From Lucifer-Gnosis, Rudolph Steiner.
-From Lucifer-Gnosis, Rudolph Steiner.
Lucifer stands on the threshold of Dawn and Dusk. The bringer of light, symbol of Thelemic strength and divine wisdom emerges. The age of Lucifer is the uprising of what Blavatsky termed "Phosphorus", the cosmic force of illumination and light. Lucifer is the force of Air, while Satan the dual and corrupted form of the light bringer is of active fire. This duality is the changeable essence of progression and evolution. Lucifer emerges by name as the Roman "bringer of light", Lucem Fero..the carrier of the torch.

Lucifer stands as the fountain head of Astral Magick; (i.e., Astral Projection, Dream Control, etc.) Lucifer is balance in the instance of both Shadow and Light, Blood Red and Jet Black. Lucifer is the color of an awakened and enlightened mind. The Psyche which is open for magical inspiration.

Blavatsky understood the significance of balance within the individual, to ascend the individual from the beast like qualities so inherent within our subconscious. Blavatsky wrote "Thus it stands proven that Satan, or the red Fiery Dragon, the "Lord of Phosphorus" and Lucifer, or "Light bearer" is in us"

Black Magic is the focus of making the Psyche immortal, surviving Earth bound after death. Luciferic Magick is the focus of Astral projection and Holy Magick. Ascension is the primary goal, To rise towards Godhead

Aleister Crowley gave us the modern synthesis and foundation of Luciferian thought. "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love is the law, love under will". Two statements which clearly set in motion the ascension of the seeking individual towards Godhead. In his poem, "Hymn to Lucifer" Crowley presents the bringer of light in a Thelemic aspect. No longer shall man be subservient to a religion which would destroy your foundation and right of personal choice.

Dogma is also a trap which can lead towards spiritual stagnation. Growth is necessary through the freedom of an open being that through will power and focus can change take hold and run its natural course.

The Luciferian individual is at heart a predator, however balancing action and thought with compassion and tolerance when such emotions are heartfelt. A Thelemic individual is by definition free to decide the proper course of which his or her life would flow. Often, clubs, orders and other thought trapping devices will trick the individual into accepting a code and "uniformities" of like minds.

Those who awaken this individual light are blessed unto ourselves. Self-Godhood is the step towards spiritual immortality. Those who seek the platform of Adept in the Magickial Quest will inadvertently perceive the basis of the balance of light and darkness. The Angelic and the Demonic shall be united, Chaos will follow form and such is the genetic and psychic make up of the Adept.
Lucifer stands for the balance of flesh and spirit. The ego or "I", constantly changing must continue to consciously manifest in a positive manner.

As Aleister Crowley pointed out in the article entitled:
"The Initiated Interpretation of Ceremonial Magic" (Published in The Goetia): "The spirits of the Goetia are portions of the human brain. Their seals therefore represent (Mr. Spencer's projected cube) method of stimulating or regulating those particular spots (through the Eye).

(a) The names of God are vibrations calculated to establish control over the human brain. (Establishment of the functions relative to the subtle world.)
(b) Control over the brain in detail. (Rank or type of the Spirit.)
Control of one special portion (Name of the spirit)."
Control is the map of empowerment and Ascension. Once direction is assumed and confirmed, can such begin to take place in association with progression and evolution? This subtle point is based around the legend of Lucifer itself.

I hope some of you find this useful in your evolution of spirit

Interesting, I have posted this writing on several other forums and this is the only one which hasn't any replies?

Part II
Prometheus - Lucifer

Prometheus serves as a symbol for those who reject the reigning theistic orthodoxies and who criticize the temptation of men and women to deify and worship the dark unknown in an effort to appease their fears of death. Prometheus is also a symbol for those who wish to use human achievements, especially technology, to improve the human condition and are willing to shape nature in order to fulfill our needs and purposes. (Prometheus Unbound)

His is a rebellion against a cruel and unjust god that would deny humanity a rightful place at the pinnacle of created nature, just as the God of Genesis is also cruel and thoughtless in exactly the same manner, where he would essentially shackle Adam and Eve to a womb like Eden and deny them growth and potentiality, keeping them childlike slaves to answer to his whims, supernaturally indentured servants for eternity, a position that is preposterous and unacceptable because they did eat of the Tree and were thrown into the fields of time and space, out of the infant womb, and into the world of experience and being, of becoming.

Prometheus demonstrates unconditional love toward the race, and if Lucifer's motives can not easily be interpreted as love based, they are at least altruistic in the sense of pointing Adam and Eve toward the path of self-freedom, and both Prometheus and Lucifer were punished for their actions: Lucifer is cursed by God above all beasts of the field, condemned to slink eternally upon his belly and eat dust, while Prometheus, at the order of Zeus, was shackled by Hephaestus, smith of the gods, to a rocky crag high in the Caucasus mountains, crucified upon a stone where a great eagle sent daily by Zeus would tear out his liver rejuvenated during the night. He is the archetypal savior figure, like Christ, both demigods, dully punished and tortured by God for the "salvation" of man.

I must admit: I absolutely love this!


I am a bit of a stickler for having internal consistency of connection between symbol and sybolized - especially when it comes to the meaning of names for entities of a mythos and their subsequent legendary meta narratives.

The name Lucifer comes from the latin phrase lucem ferre[i] - which basically can be translated to mean Light Bearer (or Light Bringer, Bringer of Light, etc...) Yet ... the popular mythos for Lucifer as being either the equivalent of "The Devil" or Satan or one of the premier nefarious and diabolical entities from Hell is completely inconsistent to me! That just never has either fit or sat well with me at all. Now if his name was Atrumigero (based upon: atrum gero - or Bringer of the Dark) I would understand. But it's not, and so I don't.

Re-constituting who, what, and why Lucifer is with a refreshing new mythos seems well past due.

Of course, it ain't ever gonna fly with those who read/hear the name and immediate drop a load in their pants in sheer terror about being deceived into worshipping Darkness (or some such foolishness). But they are not the ones for whom his story, magickal workings, etc... would be forumalted and told anyway.


My primary concerns with such a rejuvenation attempt would be:


1. Not to become a platform from which some megalomaniac could attempt to gain notoriety from, oh, I dunno, let's say like: writing a "Luciferian Bible", sprawling on a throne in supposedly sultry poses for self-aggrandizing pictures, and cultivating followers to call and use it as a new religion so they can demand acceptance for feeding and flaunting the most selfish aspects of their base natures; and,

2. Not go the "Rainbow Bright" route by becoming infused with the sickly sweet saccharine stuff that instigates a severe case of spiritual diabetes merely from sniffing it. With oodles of sparkles, tsunamis of spangles, and oceans of rainbows shining from the adorable auras of fluffy bunny- and cute kitten- like sprites - which analogically dance and prance throughout the lore, encouraging people to close their eyes and ignore the harsh edges of life in lieu of the Feel Good vibe that the Light Bearer brings!


If you get my drifts.
