"Lucifer is the stairs to go down. Lucifer is also the stairs to go up."
Lucifer is only the Shadow of God; the Shadow of the Intimate Logos within ourselves; or better said, our Profound Inner Logos, the Intimate Christ, projects its Shadow within us; and that Shadow is useful, we need it…
The Christ disguises himself as Lucifer in order to serve as stairs for us and to get us out of the Abyss, carrying us to the Light.
Therefore, we must look at Lucifer from a new point of view.
The Lucifer, really, is just the Reflection of the Logos within ourselves, its Shadow, and it is useful: it gives the sexual impulse.
That impulse is rebellious in itself, and is of a luciferic type.
But, if we are capable of controlling that animal impulse, then the Sperm is transmuted into Energy, the Great Work begins, and we win a battle with Lucifer…
Whenever we manage to dominate the animal impulse, we get up a step on the Stairs of Lucifer; and in this way we go up, step by step, until reaching the top, Self-Realized and Perfect…
Consequently, Lucifer is our staircase to go up, and vice-versa, if we want to go down, we have to use the Staircase of Lucifer.
- Samael Aun Weor “The Fifth Gospel”
