“My experience within esoteric science has conveyed to me how our egotistical nature consistently wants to place the cart before the horse. We want to know about cosmology before we even have an accurate worldview. We want to know about the nature of Lucifer before we have come to an accurate understanding of our own self. This is an essential element of Lucifer, which is to offer advanced knowledge to beings that are not yet fully capable of assimilating it and by doing so become enslaved to the source of this information.
The value of Lucifer becomes far more relevant when we investigate the meaning of this archetype as it relates to us from a personal and visceral level. We must train ourselves to view Lucifer not as a separate entity to be feared and/or worshiped, but as an element of our self to fully comprehend.”

One of the most important concept within our mythologies is the fall of mankind. This can be viewed as our descent into the material realm, the emergence of our Ego, and our self-inflicted violation of the soul.

“The mysteries and themes contained with Jung’s Liber Novus are no less than spiritual treasures. It begins with a quote from Isaiah regarding the birth of a child who shall be known as Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. The origins of this child are as humble and dismissive as the origins of Alchemy, which is a practice of finding that which is most precious in places where one would least expect it. In this instance, it is within the darkness of our inner self within the landscape of our own dreams and visions.”

“THE YEARS OF WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. It began at that time and the latter details hardly matter anymore. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than one life. Everything else later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything, was then.” – Carl Gustav Jung, 1957 Continue reading “Liber Novus: A Modern Foundation Stone”
