(Richard Enos) In trying to reconcile the very polarized opinions about Lucifer–as the bringer of light and wisdom on the one hand, as the embodiment of pure evil and licentiousness on the other hand–it becomes important to envisage our reality as multi-layered, through which something that appears very real at one level is determined at a higher level to be an illusion, albeit a purposeful one. Ultimately, in spiritual discourse, there is only one truth that binds all traditions at their root–the fact that at the highest level of perception, we are all one. To attempt to construct a spiritual cosmology that does not spring from this fundamental truth is where much of the confusion and contradiction starts.

Western Religions Grounded In Duality
While Eastern spiritual traditions are rooted in the idea that duality–yin and yang–is the immanent vehicle for movement around the wheel of karma, Western religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism seem to have devolved into a belief system where duality is still present in the highest order of reality. There seems to be this odd notion, for example, that the one true God created everything, but somehow part of his creation has slipped from his grasp; that forces of evil–call them Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, whatever–have established some kind of ‘independent reality’ outside of the gates of the Kingdom of God (i.e. ‘everything’), and thus portrays the fight between Good and Evil as ubiquitous across all levels of reality. Where there are hints about a full return to unity, it is only seen as occurring once God has somehow, through fierce opposition, eviscerated all evil from the highest realms of universal reality.
There is a notion in Christianity that if we are judged to have been ‘good’ in this life we will go to enjoy paradise in Heaven for all of time, and if we are judged to be ‘evil’ we will go to suffer in the fires of Hell for eternity. This notion could generously be termed a gross oversimplification. But it is more so an egregious departure from the fundamental tenet of the self-evident ‘unity’ of God from which mature spiritual discourse emerges. In the end, it has existed and been maintained to serve as one of several tools of control for the Roman Catholic Church. Fortunately, this simplistic notion of ‘Heaven’ has increasingly lost favor among today’s spiritual seekers in deference to more comprehensive cosmologies that better recognize the impeccably designed experience of ‘life’ that has been conceived and manifested by the universal intelligence some call ‘God’.
Human Evolution Through Densities
The desire to ‘return to Heaven’ that some of us sense intuitively is connected to a much longer and more elaborate journey than Christian dogma would have us believe, involving many incarnations through which we learn and grow in order to move up an octave of ‘densities’. Hidden-Hand explains the process here in terms of what happens after the Planetary Logos has been created:
The planetary Energy begins to become aware of Itself (the 1st Density of awareness is ‘Consciousness’), and the Planetary Logos begins to create other downward steps within Itself, and the internal make up of the planet begins to form; as the raw elements of air and fire combine to ‘work on’ the Waters and Earth, thus arising conscious awareness of their ‘being’, and the process of ‘evolution’ begins, forming the 2nd Density.
2nd Density beings begin to become aware of themselves, as being ‘separate’, and thus begin to evolve toward the 3rd Density of self-conscious-awareness, (the lowest Density into which a ‘human soul’ can incarnate).
Humans in turn (or the Souls incarnated within them), seek to ‘return to the Light’ and Love, from which they came, as they begin the journey of progression, from 3rd Density up to the 8th Density, and the return to The Infinite One-ness.
As we reach higher densities it is natural for us as individual souls to begin to return into the consciousness ‘groups’ from which we came. Hence once we approach 6th Density, each of us will have likely begun to assimilate our individual ‘identity’ with other souls that we see as part of ‘us,’ like Hidden-Hand and his ‘group soul’ named Lucifer.
Lucifer’s Role In Human Evolution
Lucifer’s role has been to stoke human beings to evolve from the 3rd Density to the 4th Density, which some have called ‘Ascension’. As described in an earlier installment, the inhabitants of Earth were living in a paradise but there was no possibility for evolution because there was a significant lack of duality (i.e. good and evil) and therefore no real freedom of choice. Humanity’s decision to partake of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil via Lucifer’s temptation set humanity on a course of evolution into 4th density which has been widely prophesied to be about to occur at this very time in our history:
Questioner: Is it the end-times, as described in the book of revelations?
Hidden-Hand: Yes. Not just described in the Book of Revelations, but also in the prophesies of virtually every religion, spiritual philosophy, and mystery tradition throughout history. This time is now at hand.
To use your own example however: Revelation 14:14-16:
’14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.’
The ‘earth’ is indeed ripe for Harvest. The question is, who will be ready? And will the Harvest be Positive, or Negative?
The ‘Harvest’ described here by Hidden-Hand is likened to the ‘Day of Judgment,’ whereby at the chosen hour the wheat shall be separated from the chaff, meaning the good from the bad. The good will ‘Ascend’ to a higher density, and enjoy the fruits of their efforts to evolve. However the idea is given more nuance in Hidden-Hand’s description of the Harvest, especially since he asks whether it will be positive or negative.
During this Ascension, there will be a three way split for those Souls inhabiting Earth. Those of the predominantly Negative Polarity, will accompany us as we Graduate through the Negative (or Service to Self) Harvest. We (Lucifer) will Create a new 4th Density Earth, based on the Negative Self Service Polarity. We must ‘work off’ our own part of the Negative Karmic effect incurred from all the Negativity created on this planet. Once we have done so, we will be released to once again assume our place as Sixth Density Guardians and Teachers of Wisdom throughout the Galaxy.
Those of the predominantly Positive Polarity (Love and Light) will Ascend to a beautiful new 4th Density Earth, where you will begin to work upon your learning and demonstrating of Love and Compassion. It will be a very beautiful and “Golden” Age. The 4th Density begins to open you up to your True Powers as a unique individualized aspect of The One Infinite Creator. You will perform works and wonders of the like that the one you call “Jesus” promised you would do “and even greater things than these”. It will be a very magical time for you.
For the majority of Humans on the earth who could be considered shall we say “luke warm”, they will experience a period of (what will feel ‘ecstatic’) zero-point time, where you feel totally at One with The Creator, giving you an encouraging reminder and glimpse of who you really are, before the veil of forgetfulness once again descends upon you, and you will be transported to another 3rd Density planet (a kind of ‘Earth Replica’), to continue working upon yourselves and learning that life here is all about making choices.
You will remain “quarantined” incarnating in 3rd Density matter until the time of the next Harvest; in which time you will need to have proved yourselves that you have learned how to be more Positive Beings, focused more upon being of Service to others, rather than seeking only to Serve yourself.
While the whole purpose of this exercise on the part of Lucifer is to help as much of humanity have a positive ascension to the 4th density, Hidden-Hand tells us that for Lucifer to be successful in their particular mandate with Yahweh, they must bring humans along with them to a new 4th density Earth as part of a ‘Negative Harvest’. Along with Lucifer, those humans will have to go through the arduous process of working off their karma in the 4th density in order to move over to the positive or service-to-others orientation. There is no other way to ascend to the 5th Density, because the energy in the 5th density makes it impossible for a predominantly service-to-self orientation to exist. This process of working off negative karma in 4th density is probably the closest thing to ‘Hell’ in this cosmology.
The main issue here, though, is the human group in-between. Hidden-Hands tells us that in order to positively ascend, human beings must be at least 51% positive, meaning that a little over half the time their thoughts, words, and actions need to be in the service of others. In order to negatively ascend, human beings must be a full 95% service-to-self oriented, meaning that almost all of their thoughts, words and actions must be selfish. That leaves the middle group, that sits between 5% and 51% positive. Hidden-Hand notes that ‘you may be surprised how many people on the planet are nowhere near reaching 51% Positive.’
The biggest challenge in what Hidden-Hand calls ‘the game,’ which is the elaborate path of evolution up through the densities that all souls in this universe have signed up for, is to motivate souls to make the effort to move up the ascension ladder, while at the same time not infringing on any soul’s free will. Souls are prone to inertia if the circumstances created are not conducive, as we saw in the Garden of Eden. But is the extent of the cruelty, horror, and evil we see in our world today–something that we can directly attribute to Lucifer–really necessary to that end? I hope to discuss this in the next part of this conversation.
Stillness Commentary on this Article
(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Lucifer is arguably one of the most hated and reviled characters in history. Lucifer is cited as the reason Eve ate the apple. Lucifer is worshiped by the dark occult, and is the antagonist of major religions. But as those who have walked far on their path toward truth and knowledge realize, there’s always more to the story.
Lucifer etymologically breaks down into two words: light bearer. Light, symbolically is associated with knowledge, wisdom, and truth. Bearer simply refers to one who holds or carries. Thus, the literal meaning of the term Lucifer is one who holds true knowledge, and shares it with others. It also means one who holds knowledge, as a kind of steward.
Given this meaning, anyone who holds or transmits true knowledge, is embodying the Lucifer archetype. But what the definition doesn’t speak to is what kind of knowledge.
Generally, knowledge is amoral—it isn’t good or bad. It’s how knowledge is used in life that determines if something is good or bad, right or wrong.
The dark Luciferian cults of this world, populated by elite power players and immoral individuals, seek knowledge and use it against the people, to maintain their power. This knowledge encompasses a wide range of topics, particularly, true psychology, law, and science.
The term occult refers to things that are hidden. Dark Luciferian’s are also called dark occultists because they hide information from the general population so they can use it against them. They worship a dark version of Lucifer, the archetype, not the mythical figure, organizing their dark religion around a concept of darkness symbolized by a black sun wreathed in flame, not unlike the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings films.
As the following well researched and articulated article describes, pouring through the contemporary and historical usages of the Lucifer concept is quite the adventure. As you’ll discover, it’s not so easy to blindly paint the idea of Lucifer as totally bad. That being said, the article and my introduction here is not an attempt to convert people into worshiping Lucifer.
Consider that the pure version of the archetype is that of a light-bearer, one who holds and shares true knowledge. There are some who act within the definition of Lucifer, but who aren’t evil or bad. Thus, this exploration of the Lucifer archetype serves as a good exercise for contending with personal prejudice.
Generally speaking, when we encounter things in life that we find reprehensible or bad, we avoid them. We avoid learning about them because we rest our conclusions on whatever we do know, usually marked by intense negative emotions. But from a truth seeking and ethical perspective, we should look deeper than surface level assessments. Sometimes your first impression of something is wrong, and if you didn’t look beyond it, you’d have missed something big.
As such, while I agree that the dark Lucifer concept is arguably bad and has been used to do negative things in this world, learning about it and the grander concept helps provide me greater knowledge. And with knowledge comes power, specifically, the power to be more moral because I’ve integrated my shadow.
So while it might seem strange to review these concepts, know that in the act of learning about these things, you provide yourself the knowledge you need to make moral choices.
In this sense, moral action doesn’t take place in ignorance. A true moral choice comes from understanding why something is bad or wrong, and choosing to do otherwise despite any temptations.
In other words, one cannot be truly moral if they do not spend time understanding the shadow as well as the light.
