Ego Sum: The true Luciferian philosophy
By far and large my most popular and endorsed book so far has been Luciferianism: Alter Ego, which is a bit of a step away from my usual writing, in that it is more to do with the practices of Luciferianism, rather than the hidden meanings in hermetic concepts.
I do practice at writing multiple ideas at a time, and some chapters fit nicely into one sort of book, such as my recently finished “Discovering the Divine” which is a series of essays relating to Hermeticism and theoretical science; the occult is a broad study and I do try to relate the study to scientific and rational concepts or theories, explaining the significance of symbols and words, rather than just suggesting people blindly recant a ‘spelling’.
While this was going on, I found that some of my discoveries and topics were more suited to AlterEgo, in that it was practical rather than academic concepts, since alterEgo has been published over a year now, and at one point found itself at #4 in the chart ranking of philosophy books being sold on Amazon (quite an achievement for an occult book). I knew then that there was the path that Luciferianism was shepherding me towards.
This has laid the foundation to Luciferianism: EgoSum, a follow-up book to Alter Ego. As always, the principles build on each other, and for the reader the opportunity to grow with me in their journey towards apotheosis. EgoSum, journeys yet deeper into hidden gnostic esotericism, revealing more hidden truths ever proposed by other occultists, yet with supporting evidence to show that these are true meanings.
EgoSum, is broken into two books, The Book of Darkness and The Book of Light which allows the reader to take their current place in the study, and become more holistic in their approach to Occultism. I find, being a gnostic-theistic Luciferian, many people come into the subject of Luciferian study from a dark place within themselves, which they embrace and wish to explore. Others, find themselves in the dark realms and wish to see “the light” and the illumination that Luciferianism offers; others, Lightworkers, are aware of the darker side of the Ego and fear it or reject it because of the new age influence on modern occultism and paganistic belief systems. I thought I would provide an objective book which people from any place on their path could view and explore their place, path, and destination objectively, correcting the fallacy that being holy is to be without failings, no holiness is purity, holiness is to be whole, aware of all aspects of our holistic existence. Wholeyness is more truly next to Godliness.
I also aim to redirect the concepts of the “LHP” and “RHP” from the Luciferian point of view as the really are inadequate ideals for the Luciferian philosophy. While I freely admit the LHP is probably the most recognised umbrella term for the Luciferian gnosis, LHP is inherited into Luciferianism by default aspect of the Satanism association, and many people who come in to Luciferianism from the Satanic circles, are quite shocked when they find a few Luciferians become offended when they are referred to as “Satanists”. Luciferianism does not dictate a path, Luciferianism does not dictate anything, Luciferianism will not allow itself to be explicitly categorised, as Luciferianism is the principality of absolute self and the sovereignty of your conscious existence. There are no boxes nor law to which a true Luciferian can be bound.
I am sure, like me you rage when you seek Luciferian pathology only to be posed with rules and definitions which attempt to bind you into someone else’s ideals. False guides will claim that you should be free of dogma, yet in the next line they will tell you “you must”.
Luciferianism is not LHP, it is not RHP, it is not dark, nor light. The supreme judge of what Luciferianism is, is you. The absolute law.
Even in claiming that as a definition of Luciferianism, I’m erring on misrepresenting Luciferianism; because it is the fact that it is infinitely without dogma and law, that means that any rule you apply to identifying what constitutes being “Luciferian”, means that to adhere to that law is contrary to the belief of Luciferianism. In short, as soon as I say “To be a Luciferian, one must…” I am guilty of trying to impose a dogma of Luciferianism. The point is, you are sovereign ruler of your beliefs, experience, and practice, and while we come together as a community to share ideals and teachings, none of those ideals or teachings are to be considered truth unless you choose them to be your personal truth.
If you want to revere a bearded old man, looking down with from heaven judging humanity or dance naked in the woods ate, lying to a moon Beelzebub, you can do it as a Luciferian. And so, that means that Luciferian can be, by all definitions an RHP journey. Luciferianism isn’t “Devil Worship” either, but it can be if you want to follow that direction.
Luciferianism does not dictate your religion if you have one at all. Theists, Atheists, and Agnostics can share common ground in the philosophy of Luciferianism. We do seemingly have a great interest in occult topics, particularly ones that explore the great unanswerable questions, Why are we here? How are we here? It’s the study of Science and Scripture.
The Luciferian is, if nothing else objective, and aware of his subjective influences which he ideally discards in the interest of objectivity (although this is not a requirement). He uses this court of a level playing field, where his personal interest and experience is put behind him in decisions of “Sophos”, wisdom; which is what it’s all about.
EgoSum reveals many new hermetic meanings essential for the occultists to have a broader idea of sealed knowledge. It allows you to take great leaps forward in your practice, not by repeating empty incantations, but by understanding primordial forces at play.
Stand in the light to see the dark, stand in the dark to see the light. wherever you stand, you must realise that the place you are, dictates the direction you must head and therefore which path to follow.
