Shake off the dust of the ages Ancient One
Godpower arise and stand forth, for you have been lovingly fashioned by the Holy One
The light casts a shadow so that it can be seen by that which it is not
What’s the connection between Lucifer and the Infinite?*
The environment is the extended expression of the embodiment of the Infinite. I have often wondered, why does the Infinite not control the environment better, if you consider the environment is almost like the body of the Infinite? Why does it not have this ability? Because the Infinite is like a little baby. The baby does not deliberately put its toe or its thumb in its mouth to suck. That comes when he is older. Initially he has no control over his body. The Infinite is like a baby that cannot yet control his body’s movement… the Infinite is learning how to control its body.
Lucifer contains the shadow cast by the Infinite. Why does the Infinite cast a shadow when it is the source of light? You could say that a baby is a toddler that hasn’t yet learned to express. It’s not that the potential isn’t there, it’s just that it isn’t articulated. The Infinite, just like a baby, has to first learn to master its own body; to externalize and control it as something separate from itself. Vast parts of the Infinite remain to be mastered to express.
‘Dabalo Hoshes’ means ‘Godpower Arise’. The godpower that must arise is slumbering in the form of unarticulated potential. And the shadow cast by this unexpressed godpower is Lucifer. Lucifer is the Shadow of the Infinite, and the Infinite casts a shadow by the potential that remains to be articulated. (It still has to learn, as it were, ‘here is my mouth, here is my thumb, I put my thumb in my mouth by my own volition’.)
And that shadow must be embodied by him lest it would spill throughout Creation?
†Lucifer’s acted as the ‘container’ of the shadow of the Infinite, to be more precise. This function has now been relinquished.
