    Default The Meaning of Lucifer.

    I believe in the meaning of Lucifer holds the key of what it means to be a Luciferian.

    This is how EYE see it.

    Lucifer was both an etruscan God and a Roman God.
    In the Etruscan religion he was The God of Light. In his darker nature he was the God of Nature - a Horned God. When incorporated into the roman pantheon as a lesser god he became the God of Light, Knowledge, and Air. The symbolism of Air in Greek comes from AER. AER is not '' The Astral Plane'' but the air we breathe. The Aethyrs were supposed to be the Astral Plane which also translates into ''air'' but it was supposed to be '' the air beyond the celestial sphere'' or the stars.

    Thus Lucifer is a force of Nature fallen from Above.

    In Christianity Lucifer fell because he wanted to be God. In Merkavah Kabbalah the point is to stand before the glory of The Throne Of God ( The Merkavah) and thus in the glory of his presence dissolve into him. Lucifer sought to gain the Throne and Be God.

    The original name for Lucifer in Isaiah was actually ''Day Star'' and not the '' Morning Star''.... there was actually a King in those days with the name of Day Star. So in some parts of the occult Lucifer is seen as an honored force, a force of temptation to Man in order to test and better himself.

    In Islam Lucifer fell and became Iblis because when God created Man he wanted Lucifer to bow down before his creation. Lucifer then said '' Why should a son of fire bow down to a son of clay?'' and because he was defiant he was cast out of Heaven. Thus he told God that he hated man and would do everything to turn Man away from God.

    However, The Yezidis (sp?) consider otherwise. They view that God was testing the loyalty of the Angels. So it is said in their version of the Koran
    '' Why should a son of fire bow down to a son of clay? I am sorry my lord but I will not disobey the first commandment'' ( As in ... Thou shalt bow to no other gods before me).

    In Occultism this was not seen as a test of God but the idea that proving that God is not Infallible. In one train of thought this only proved that one could become a God or that there were multiple ones. So when Lucifer fell into the Abyss he arose as a God. In Luciferian thought a God is not born simply through ritual but through sweat, hard work and discipline.

    In another train of Thought it made Lucifer the Creator and (a) God because it created Chaos. Thus with Order and Chaos came Duality which resulted in the creation of All That Is.

    It is that '' Luciferic'' thought that really makes a foundation in Luciferianism on the concept of a quest for knowledge. This '' Luciferic'' thought has been known to change societies, stimulate growth, and various other means.

    An example of this follows into Thelema and the words of the Aeons.
    '' Allah'' being that '' God is One'' united all of the tribes in the middle east into a coherent unit and brought a kind of harmony.

    ''Anatta'' or '' No Soul/Atman'' was the concept that started Buddhism and brought about the ending of the caste system.

    It goes on and on.
    Even in Christianity,
    ''Agape'' ... the concept that no longer do you need to do an elaborate ritual to go to Heaven but all you need to do is Love Christ and love one another and you'll end up in Heaven.

    Luciferianism is thus a quest for God-hood. A quest for knowledge. A quest to break old paradigms, the discovery of new currents of energy and the liberation of others. It is also a quest for Balance. For Lucifer makes the profane something sacred and the sacred something profane all for our advancement. This is also a quest of falling into The Abyss... the dark side of ourselves... in order to arise completely self-aware.
    Those who Fall will find their Heaven
    and will always be adored.


    In Plaudo Atri Matris!

    The word Lucifer is found in only one place in the Bible -- Isaiah 14:12 -- but only in the King James and related versions: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! . . ."

    The New Revised Standard Version translates the same passage as "How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, Son of Dawn!" In other translations we find: "O shining star of the dawn!" (Moffatt) or "O morning-star, son of the dawn!" (Hebrew Bible).

    The King James Version is based on the Vulgate, the Latin translation of Jerome. Jerome translated the Hebrew helel (bright or brilliant one) as "lucifer," which was a reasonable Latin equivalent.

    Lucifer is not an Adversary as the word Satan (Shaiten) describes
    Lucifer is the 'Bringer of Light' in other words Lux Lucis (Lucifer) is gnosis, truth and Divine knowledge.

    Lucifer makes His debut in the Testaments as the Serpent in the Garden of Eden pointing out to Eve that God is a liar and you will not die if you eat of the fruit of knowledge, which she did and did not die.


    Lucifer is the god of progress and intellectual inquiry, not only the divine inspiration behind the spiritual enlightenment of the Gnostic and the heretic and the lover of God in all his/her forms. Through Lucifer's spirit humanity first climbed down from the trees and has represented the flow of progress ever since.

    But Lucifer may be more than a metaphor for rebellion, enlightenment and advancement - as the pure creative and motive light, Lucifer may actually be the key to life itself . . .

    The DNA within the nuclei of all cells of living creatures contains biophotons or ultra-weak proton emissions - in other words, light! A dynamic web of light constantly released and absorbed by the DNA connects cells, tissues and organs and serve as the organism's main communication network.

    Lucifer is on the move inside you and me, chattering between cell and cell, rousing the cohorts of the life-force, keeping us alive and wonderful. Every man and woman is a star - and now we know we have our own inner light.

    I thought to share this, the concept of Lucifer By Rudolf Steiner :


    "The significant symbol of wisdom given to us by research is Lucifer, the bringer of light. Everybody is searching for perception, wisdom is a child of Lucifer. The Chaldean astrologers, the Egyptian priests, the Indian Brahmans; they are all children of Lucifer. Already the first man became a child of Lucifer when the serpent taught him good and evil. What they got to know by perception was the sacred cosmic mystery. In front of it they kneeled in devotion. It was the light that showed their souls to their destiny. In devotion they received wisdom which became faith, religion. What Lucifer had brought to them, shined godlike in front of their psychic eyes. Owing to Lucifer they had God. It means to disunite heart and mind if God is considered as Lucifer's enemy. Our educated don't raise the perception of the mind to religious devotion, they paralyze the enthusiasm of the heart.

    For those who are searching for the light of the spirit Lucifer shall be a messenger. He won't talk about a faith that is alien to perception. He won't flatter into the hearts to avoid the guardian of science: he shall respect him. He won't preach piety and divine bliss but will show ways for the knowledge to change into divine sensation, into the devotion of the cosmic spirit. Lucifer knows that the radiant sun may only rise in the heart of the individual; but he also knows that only the paths of perception lead up to the mountain where the sun appears in his divine radiation. Lucifer is no devil leading the searching Faust to hell; he shall be an awaker of those who believe in knowledge who want to change into the gold of divine wisdom."
    -From Luzifer-Gnosis, Rudolph Steiner.

    Cool

    In Etruscan belief as in Stregheria (Italian craft), Lucifer is a God. In Stregheria, Lucifer is the Sun God, the "Son of Light" and is Diana's Brother. Lucifer has been considered a daemon and a Fallen Angel in other paths. The Freemasons honor and pay homage and respect to Lucifer as well.

    His brother, hmmm! I do know both Lucifer (if you see Lucifer as the Serpent) & Jesus are referred to as the MorningStar (Venus)?

    Isaiah 14:12
    King James version - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

    New International Version - How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

    Revelation 22:16
    "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
    Magus III°

    I mentioned the estruscan belief thing in my post that started this.
    ''The Gospel of Aradia'' explains the whole thing with Lucifer.

    I was trying to point that Lucifer is a force of adversity... because he destroys in order to create anew.

    Another interesting thing is the way the mormons look at Lucifer.
    Lucifer is supposed to be a dictator like figure in their belief. He didn't want to give Free-Will to man but The Heavenly Father did. Thus Lucifer caused war and rebellion. This is supposed to be the reason why Mormons are supposed to be so peaceful and be okay with polygamy... because monogamy limits the will of someone. It is also supposed to have other lessons.

    Not saying I agree with them. But just another view of Lucifer.
    Those who Fall will find their Heaven
    and will always be adored.
