Luciferianism is a living philosophy that values and honors the dynamic principles essential to the characteristics of Lucifer. The name Lucifer can be translated as “Light Bearer”, lux=light and fero= to bear. Lucifer also denotes Venus, as the morning and evening star. There is plenty of material that can provide historical data concerning Lucifer; this document is geared towards Luciferic Principles and Light.
Luciferians are those who seek the light of occult knowledge from within the embodiment of that which brings the light. By so doing, Luciferians work to attain their own higher intelligence, illumination and/or enlightenment. As Lucifer is the embodiment of knowledge, he represents that which brings light to the mind of humanity to advance the intellectual evolution of our species. By him do we actively pursue our own evolution to higher understanding and higher levels of becoming.
Luciferianism is intellectual progress and freedom. A Luciferian may or may not believe in and/or worship Lucifer as a spiritual being, deity or father god. A Luciferian may be purely philosophical regarding the principles symbolically embodied in Lucifer as knowledge, wisdom, and light. Regardless of personal belief, all Luciferians advocate intellectual individualization over mass conformity, and are thereby free to choose that which works best for them.
Luciferianism is essentially the way of light and knowledge that leads one to that which is termed the Higher Self. Within each Luciferian is a relentless urge to know, dare, will and keep silent. The world is our laboratory and life is the experiment. Through self-knowledge, self-betterment and self-mastery, one experiences greater awareness, reflecting from within the Self, as an aware being interacting with the environment.
Lucifer is presented by Christian dogma as the devil, and a beautiful angel cast down from the heavens to the earth. As there is light in all knowledge, we can extract relevant information even from Christianity. To say Lucifer was cast from the heavens implies that there existed an intelligent being that came to earth and propagated human illumination. That essentially we are all heavenly beings, for earth is itself a heavenly body. The devil represents to many non-luciferians a negative connotation, but to the Luciferian the devil idea is a force inherent in us all, and is a source of personal power and growth. In this respect Lucifer is an impersonal force that is focused on evolutionary consciousness, which involves the mastery of all the emotions involved with growing. .
Lucifer is known as the Angel of Light as well as the Prince of Darkness. Often Luciferianism is associated with Satanism. While it is true that they posses a mutual link, Satanism and Luciferianism represent different stages of intellectual development toward Self-Knowledge and Self-Attainment. Satanism is the initial defiance against mass conformity and towards intellectual freedom by way of rebellion, selfishness and self-indulgence. As most all Satanists have in some way been negatively influence by Christianity, they seek to secure a position within the forces of its opposition.
However, as one begins to develop intellectually, Satanism and its carnality does not satisfy the hunger for true knowledge. And thus the initiate may advance to eat of the fruit of knowledge that can be gained through Luciferic Illumination; the body of knowledge that illuminates the mind and manifests the Higher Self. In this way does one advance their own intellectual self-awareness and alter their understanding of reality within the self and the world about. The pleasures of the flesh remain a part of being human, and no true Luciferian would deprive themselves or others of that which arouses the senses. Heightened awareness of one’s self and one’s environment leads toward Self-Mastery and Self-Sovereignty. It is the path of the Self-Ruling, that the Luciferian illuminates.
Knowledge is power. The Knowledge afforded by the Luciferic light is the way that leads toward the discovery of one’s true Self. It is a life long journey that continually awakens the individual’s personal power as a conscious living force; a living force that possesses the powers of a god, to create and destroy. It is the ability to build, to tear down and to rebuild again.... to higher standards. The powers of creation and destruction are focused internally inasmuch as they are focused externally. It is the Magnum Opus, it is the operation of manifestation, and it is the Aracanum of Light.
Luciferians are in the world but not of it. They are Self-Aware conscious beings that can exist beyond the clan-mind and its cultural and social restraints. For such restraints repress the individual and inhibit self-development. Cultural systems that are built upon false security and false superiority harbor the weak, such systems are threatened by individualization and therefore shun it. It is the conditioning by such systems that prevents people from finding individual light, for it instills the fear of being alone in the world. A Luciferian realizes their own isolation and is able walk alone, but is never lonely.
The Light of Lucifer awakens Self-Knowledge. This spectrum of light manifests a shift in consciousness within evolutionary beings. It may develop slowly or come in flashes; just as he tempted Eve, to eat of the fruit of knowledge, thus awakening in her a realization, a revelation that placed her outside of and above the animal kingdom which was the Garden of Eden. She thereby entered a higher reality, which lead to higher knowledge. The evolution of humanity continues to this day and age, and we are experiencing yet another shift in consciousness as Lucifer once again tempts the human race towards higher levels of consciousness.
A Luciferian is Intellectual Illumination, and the light of knowledge shines forth from every source, for all is the embodiment of knowledge. Therefore, Luciferians are not confined in their study or practice. For they may find their own truth in various systems of thought, picking the fruit of knowledge from here and there, and developing their own working system of thought and magick designed for their own Selves. A Luciferian understands that all knowledge attained by humankind is irrevocably the Light of Lucifer.
Lucifer’s light is also likened to the silver star, the morning star and the evening star; it is symbolic of the Luciferian as a balanced radiant being of opposing forces. The morning star, which is the planet Venus, represents the feminine qualities embodied within the masculine qualities of Lucifer; the intellect and intuition unified within as one thinking entity. As he represents light and darkness, so to does he possess masculine and feminine principles. His Light and Knowledge radiates like a star, a fixed point of conscious light hanging in the balance of influential forces. A Luciferian does what all others say cannot be done. To walk the fence, balanced between opposing forces; to experience both the positive and negative attributes of life, and thereby experience life to its fullest potential.
Be Lucifer the god of, or the principle of, light, knowledge and magick; him do we acknowledge, and him do we honor as the embodiment of our highest standards and ideals. To reveal our True-Selves, purged of all delusions and lies, to think freely without dictated beliefs, and to embark upon our own true path, can come about only, as we begin to have trust in our selves and pursue higher knowledge. By so doing we make better choices for our lives, the lives of others and the world.
The Luciferian is just to those who are just, respectful to those who are respectful, and makes others strong in time of weakness, while not tolerating the weak. Freedom does not belong to the weak, they feed off the strong who fight for it, therefore they must be eliminated. Weakness is limitation and that which holds back evolutionary advancement. One must overcome the lower self, that which is weak, and become the Higher Self, which is the strength of ones own inner truth.
It is the will of the Luciferian, to discover and build upon strong points, to strengthen them by strengthening the weaknesses that inhibit and keep us from ascending toward higher levels of Self-Manifestation. The Luciferian shall manifest that will in the world, thus enhancing the human condition in this world and preparing it for the next.
It is all in the mind, in each and every individual mind. The imagination sparks the Light that affords the Luciferian insight into his own potential. The will is the black flame, within, that fires the soul to manifest itself. It is the dark light that penetrates every living thing, that light not seen by two eyes, but one.
By way of the study and practice, of the higher arts of knowledge, does the Luciferian participate in the reality of matter and energy; raising the energy body into a radiant light that is the soul, from lead to gold; shining forth as an energy of conscious living force, thereby becoming Soular. The Soular body is the embodiment of an individual source of Light, Intelligence and Energy, penetrating every solid and intangible thing. This is the Arcanum of Light, this is the path of the Luciferian.
The Luciferian Order, Ordo Luciferi, is a dedicated body of occult knowledge; the Light and magick that is embodied within Luciferic Principles, and leads toward Intellectual Illumination. It is the Secret Science of the Self-Sovereign, a science as much as a religion. It is an ever evolving path of Self-Perfection. It is the path of Dark Light which is embodied within the Soular being, of Self-Knowledge, Self-Discipline, Self-Becoming, Self-Mastery, Self-Sovereignty and Self-Attainment.
Let the one who hath understanding seek the Light of the Higher Self.
