Can You See the Light from Here?

The dawn breaks...

The water, the air, and of course, the light. You live in the best of all worlds. You are eternal.

I was walking around heaven one day when I heard The Voice call to me. “Lou,” It said, “I have a job for you.” Again? I thought. I was beginning to get tired of constantly being bothered with It’s staggeringly silly requests. I’m getting old. I want to retire. But, no! On it goes. What now? I headed toward The Office.

The Gatekeeper told me to wait a second. Then, he said, “It will see you now.” In I went. Before I could say a word, It bellowed, “Boy, do I have a good one for you this time. You get to be the star for a while. Haven’t you been wanting that? Haven’t you been wanting to ‘go out on your own’ and ‘be your own boss?’ Here’s your chance.” It was on to me. Yikes.

“What did you have in mind, High One?”

“I just created a new game and you get to be the Bad Guy.”

“Bad Guy? Is it safe?”

“Well, let’s put it this way. Once you make an initial appearance, you get to retire. The players will make up all kinds of stuff about you, but you don’t have to be there. You’ll still get the credit without any of the work. They’ll do it for you. Sound good?”

“So, what’s the game?” I asked.

“Lou, you’re smart, attractive, clever. Here’s what I want you to do. I want you to go down to the new planet Earth and simple show yourself to the new humans I have created. They’re still half asleep. You will wake them up, get their brains working, activate their consciousness. That’s all you‘ll have to do. Believe me, they can take over after that.”

“Will they know who I am?”

“Sort of. They’ll get the Lou part right.”

The actual name of the character in this little story is Lucid. The world ended up calling him Lucifer.*  Unfortunately, instead of seeing him as the Light Bearer he actually is, they saw him as the Lord of Evil, God's enemy, humanity's enemy. But the Creator knew he was necessary.

When Lucid entered the Garden of Eden as the Serpent, ancient symbol of wisdom, he was simply doing what The Voice had asked him to do: awaken the sleeping consciousness of the humans, stir up the Kundalini energy, as it were. He was indeed a bringer of light. But the lights went out fast.

The world knew him not. He was declared the Archenemy, the Diabolical, the Uncontrollable. The Scapegoat, the Horned One, the Stealer of Souls.

In fact, Lucifer as Devil, Evil One, Beelzebub, never existed. He is a product of the frightened mind. He is as unreal as this story. Lucid, however, is still among us. Subtle, hidden, but here. He has only to be sincerely called.

Awakening can be scary.

*The word Lucifer is the old Latin word for the planet Venus, the Bringer of the Dawn. It appears only once in the Bible--in the Book of Isaiah, an old Hebrew book. The Latin language had not been created when Isaiah was written. In fact, it would be hundreds of years before Latin was an established language. So, how did a Latin word turn up in an old Hebrew text? Placed there, perhaps, by later Christian editors? Probably. At any rate, the word should not be in the text. Actually, the passage is referring to the King of Babylon or Persia, one of the two. Not the devil.
