As Eccentric as Lucifer: Mother Nature’s alter ego
I once told someone that I thought I was Lucifer incarnate and she told me ‘ c’mon don’t flatter yourself ‘. Exactly dude.. Lucifer is so eccentric that Being Him is a compliment.
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.
The power Lucifer has over mankind is their ignorance of Him. The evil, nothing more nothing less. While in fact He is very beautiful. Hold your sanity for a while. Beauty cum divinity cum etherialism cum eccentric. Lucifer’s etherialism makes him the epitome of eccentricity.
Lucifer has a God Complex. He had a God complex ever since his creation. Created the most beautiful angel you surely can’t blame him for the God complex. Lucifer is the most beautiful being God ever created. “Yeah it’s hearsay. I’m here saying it, brother.” Ain’t no element of perhaps involved here.
‘The Lord had created all of the angels except for one who would surpass all the other angels in brilliance, splendor and authority. This angel would be appointed over a third of the angelic hosts and would lead in praise and worship of the God head. He would stand closest to the throne and authority clothed in shimmering colour and wings like no other. The cherub was exquisite in beauty and his name would be called Lucifer. The son of the bright morning star.
God’s heavenly creations were complete, Lucifer and all the sons of God worshipped and shouted for joy upon the sea of glass and glistening throne of God.
God spoke calling forth His crown cherub and chief archangel:
” Lucifer, thy bright and morning star, it is you who have been elected over a third of the stars of heaven as your brethren, be not wise in your own wisdom Lucifer and do not be taken over by your exceeding beauty for you are my creation, created under my authority. Come and take your position at my left hand side of power.”
Marcion the heretic said God was responsible for evil. Mainstream Christians absolved the almighty of responsibility by blaming all their wrong on the Prince of darkness and man. But, in a strange way, Marcion had a better handle on the situation than the more conventional followers of the church, for Lucifer is merely one of the faces of a large force. “Evil is a by-product, a component of creation.” When God gave Lucifer all that power and Free will was he tempting Lucifer to rebel?
You see, for the world to be neutral & harmonious, each force must have its equal. Good & evil. I believe God knew about this but he didn’t want the responsibility of creating evil. That’s why he pushed Lucifer by giving him a God complex then telling him to postulate before Adam, a being that excretes Urea.
The head of days thought a time to create for himself his most magnificent creation. He would create an expansive space, time, dimension for which this new creation would dwell. In this fine night world, he filled it with the first spark of light , then stars, planets and one with rich vegetation and essential life.
The angels stood in awe and wonder as God breathed life into his new creation which was unlike any other creature he created before.
He was created in the likeness of God, a spirit being enclosed with flesh.
The four of the presence stood positioned on high watched along with all the heavenly hosts. God instructed Lucifer and a third under his command to depart to earth. He would send Michael with further instructions at a later time.
However, Lucifer was unsure and uneasy about this new creation. Seeds of contempt began to enter him.
The angels and the heavenly hosts rejoiced with great exhilaration at the new creation of mankind.
In heaven unbeknownst to Lucifer, God had declared that the angels would serve this new creation. The angels bowed in acknowledgement of God’s declaration in that they would serve mankind and watch over them.
Amidst the celebrations in heaven, Michael was sent to deliver this message to Lucifer.
Upon arrival, Michael greeted his brethren Lucifer and decreed what the Lord God had commanded. Lucifer raged with anger as he saw it unfitting that the most magnificent angel of heaven would have to serve a creature that was created lower than himself.
Michael rebuked Lucifer for his poor judgement against the command of the Lord but Lucifer lashed back.:
“If it displeases Him, then I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s and I will sit upon the Mount of Congregation in the sides of the North.”
Michael shocked by his brother’s reasoning departed back to heaven.
Michael reported all that had taken place before the throne of God as Lucifer and those under Him made their arrival. Lucifer entered the throne of God as the angelic hosts muttered amongst themselves.
The head of days spoke:
“Lucifer, thou wicked and unappreciative cherub what is this that thou have suffuced to obey my command.?”
“I am Lucifer, the bright and morning star. It is beneath me to serve that inferior being that you call man. I shall not obey your decree nor will my angels with me.”
The Lord replied:
“Lucifer, you have taken a great task upon yourself. You have elected yourself to be just as I am and you have vowed to ascend above my throne in heaven. Make genuine of your foolish threat by taking down your shielded wings and let us speak face to face.”
Humiliated and powerless, Lucifer responded:
“If it is man you want me to serve, then I would rather serve myself.”
The Lord’s judgement came firmly:
“Lucifer, thou wicked and ungrateful cherub, you were holy but now you are stripped off your holiness. You have made a gross error in your freedom and have vowed to ascend above your creator. For this I will cast you from my presence granting you a segment of time to reign and for the rest to the challenge of my authority. Thereupon you will be cast into the lake of fire for all eternity.”
God commanded Michael and the heavenly hosts to expell Lucifer and his rebel angels who wish to follow him. There was a war in heaven and the faithful angels of light fought the …………………. Yada yada yada.
At least he ain’t a hypocrite. He never hid his contempt of mankind from God. This contempt costed him his Holiness.
Lucifer is perhaps the being with the highest level of conviction ever. To rebel against your creator requires very deep conviction and balls.
Conviction is the greatest gift man could ever possess. It takes a very high level of consciousness to actually know your purpose like Jesus & Muhammad did and selflessly pursue it with so much gusto. It is what pitches men from each other. Superior men from inferior men.
Escobar got immortalized into the 21st century popular culture not because he ran the biggest crack biz but because he had conviction of actually running such a biz.
Balls of Lucifer should be an idiom by now coz Lucifer has the biggest balls; bigger than Goliath’s. These big balls are full of conviction. Cum can’t be ethereal you see.
His conviction has made good of insisting mankind’s contemptibility. Everything Lucifer has done is to prove to God how much man is a contemptible being. From Adam and Eve to Trump through Stalin & Hitler.
He was such a pain in the ass that he actually caused God to sacrifice his own son in order to save mankind. The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.. Because of Lucifer. If that ain’t eccentric I donno what is. Lucifer is perhaps more eccentric than Jesus.
Such thoughts are called heresy but I call them eccentric. Go hang yourself with your halo you judgemental motherfucker. In the Battle between Canonical and heretics. Heresy wins because it embodies eccentricity.. Deviating from the norms. Time and again, heresy turned out to be more truthful than canons.
Conviction in chief. – Lucifer 1-0
Whether you are a Muslim/ Christian/ aethist whether you like it or not, there is a necessary evil in the world, whichever way you choose to call it; civilisation is the foundation of its spirit. I choose to call it Lucifer. Can of worms much? Lucifer turns the cogs of evolution.
The awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind. This is Lucifer’s job.
Freethinkers had sought to redeem and glorify the name Lucifer while theologians cursed him as the prince of the fallen angels. Lucifer would take on the role of an educator. “The god of the Bible doomed mankind to perpetual ignorance, and [people] would never have known Good from Evil if Lucifer had not told them how to become as wise as the gods themselves.” Regardless of whether Lucifer is conceived of as a deity or as a mere archetype, he is a representation of ultimate knowledge and exploration
Lucifer in this context is seen as one of many morning stars, a symbol of enlightenment, independence and human progression, and is often used interchangeably with similar figures from a range of ancient beliefs, such as the Greek titan Prometheus or the Jewish talmudic figure Lilith.
There is a price to be paid for every increase in consciousness. Whoever coined the phrase ignorance is bliss wasn’t mad. In your quest for knowledge, you are going according to Lucifer’s plans. Going according to his plans is akin to worshipping him.
Odin gave his eye to acquire knowledge. The cost of knowledge is evil. Lucifer’s checkmate against God. God & Lucifer are playing some serious chess. Don’t believe me, read the book of Job. Lucifer’s gambit was conquering the earth using as his pawn a fresh godly invention, an innocent pair Jehovah had planted in a garden – Adam and Eve. The Great Seducer tempted Eve with the apple of Knowledge. She could not resist the Luciferian fruit. Eve’s sin against God corrupted all mankind. Ever since that time, man has aspired to the Lord, but found himself a victim of the devil.
The root irruption of the natural order of things is man’s self-consciousness. Like trees reaching high,
men appear to grasp heaven,
while rooted in hell. These are the vagaries of nature and the vicissitudes of fate.
Evil is a byproduct of nature’s strategies for creation and is woven into our most basic biological fabric. Lucifer isn’t responsible for evil. He just exposed it by giving you knowledge.
For all eternity Lucifer’s name will be envamped to represent all of humans’ depravity while humans are the evil ones.
This argument echoes a very old one. St. Paul proposed it when he put forth the doctrine of original sin.
Thomas Hobbes ressurected this argument when he called the lot of man brutish and nasty.
Since the beginning of history, we have been blinded by evil’s ability to Don a selfless disguise.
God put in us fine qualities/ Desires, then Lucifer acts on these desires. We have failed to see that our finest qualities are often the generators of the actions we most abhor — murder, torture, genocide and war.
Nature embraces evil. If you embrace the natural arts you cease being holy. Its either you love sex too much, your gender becomes fluid, naturally become a hippie, get more susceptible to drugs, aethism.. Whatever. But once you become an artist you get messed up. By imitating nature you are imitating Lucifer. By deepening the mystery you are embodying Lucifer. Lucifer is nature’s alter ego.
Nature embodies Lucifer, art imitates nature, Life imitates art. Do you hear what am saying? She has built her reprehensible modus operandi into our psychology.
Lucifer is the dark side of cosmic fecundity, the cutting blade of the sculptor’s knife. Nature does not abhor evil, she embraces it. She uses it to build. With it she moves the human world to greater heights of organization, intricacy and power. We need to stare directly into nature’s bloody face and realize that she has saddled us with evil for a reason. And we must understand that reason to outwit her.
For Lucifer is almost everything men like Milton imagined him to be. He is ambitious, an organizer, a force reaching out vigorously to corrupt mankind. But he is not a demon separate from nature’s benevolence. He is part of the creative force itself. Lucifer, In fact is mother nature’s alter ego.
If Lucifer is this eccentric, then think of He who created Lucifer. Transcending in magnificence, creator of Lucifer, Jesus’ father. Don’t get me started on the God’s sense of humor cliché. I’ll go crazy for days in amazement.
A heretic sounds too scathing. Let’s say am the Post-idiomatic real life devil’s advocate.
