"Ego = Outer perception, not intuition. Endeavors to keep you anxious, worrying, fearful — weakens mental/intuitive resolve. Always wants to be in charge, twists logic and second guesses to induce uncertainty and fear. Goal is to weaken the individual and courage of convictions and induce a mental state of fear and insecurity.
Weakens the will and make susceptible to instant gratification. Institutions are created in the likeness of the ego, are to a degree an extension of the ego. Signs that your ego is driving the bus: feeling insecure, controlling, judgmental, tired, self-conscious, conventional." - By Michael Jaco, 24 Year Navy SEAL
This image of Lucifer is from Dante Alighieri's Divina Commedia, late 15th century.
Lucifer represents the angel of light with individual intellect who 'rebels' against the outside 'dark authority'. This is why he is called the 'fallen angel.' The dark and outside authority can be attributed to our flesh and fleshly desires coupled with the outside material world that attempts to take us away from the true light within each one of us.
Manley Palmer Hall 33° had written in The Lost Keys Of Freemasonry: "When The Mason learns that the Key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the Mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply this energy." (page 48)
In deciphering this image (Diego de Valadés Rhetorica Christiana 1579) below, you will clearly see the man to the right who is chained and led by Demons with their leader Yaldoboath to riches and the earthly throne of fire. Yaldoboath is the ruler of this world who is the Chief Archon who is the son of the creator God of Genesis and the demiurge of Platonism. The meaning of the name demiurge is maker which makes him the "creator of the material world."
Plato had said, "that when the great leader Jupiter drives his chariot swiftly in the heavens, he marches first, as disposing and taking care of all things, a vast host of gods and demons then follow, distributed into twelve parties, but that Vesta alone remains in the mansion of the gods."
To say that UC San Diego archaeologist Geoffrey Braswell was surprised to discover a precious jewel in Nim Li Punit in southern Belize is something of an understatement.
“It was like finding the Hope Diamond in Peoria instead of New York,” said Braswell, who led the dig that uncovered a large piece of carved jade once belonging to an ancient Maya king. “We would expect something like it in one of the big cities of the Maya world. Instead, here it was, far from the center,” he said. (more…)
A newly discovered trove of 16 engraved and otherwise modified limestone blocks, created 38,000 years ago, confirms the ancient origins of the pointillist techniques later adopted by 19th and 20th century artists such as Georges Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, and Roy Lichtenstein.
"The world is not prepared yet to understand the philosophy of Occult Sciences - let them assure themselves first of all that there are beings in an invisible world, whether 'Spirits' of the dead or Elementals; and that there are hidden powers in man, which are capable of making a God of him on earth." ~ H. P. Blavatsky
