Advent of Lucifer Day 22: Blood

Half gods are worshiped in wine and flowers. Real gods require blood.– Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God Blood Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer Blood is the ultimate expression of life force. Your blood is the ultimate expression of you – it contains your whole story. Where you’ve been, where you’re going. Your DNA. Your health, past, present, and future.Taste a drop of someone’s blood and you might learn how they will die, if you speak the language. We use it to seal the most solemn of pacts because blood always comes at a price. Blood isn’t merely transactional, however, and it isn’t really just about…

Advent of Lucifer Day 21: Lacrimosa

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. — Washington Irving Lacrimosa Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer We have much to mourn. Our planet’s biosphere is dying because of the actions of a few human beings, and those human beings have trained class slaves to be complicit. Capitalism is in decline and many of us are being crushed to death even as we seek escape. People we know feel depressed and disordered when these are perfectly rational responses…

Advent of Lucifer Day 20: The Artist

Go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. — Bob Ross The Artist Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer What could bring us closer to divinity than the act of creation? God was made in our image, for we are creators and ever have been. From the first crude cave paintings, human beings have sought to externalize information and emotions. Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, art is an expression of human DNA,and creation is your birthright. We’ve talked about why art is important, but we haven’t discussed why it’s important for you, the artist, to create. Most people think they aren’t, or can’t be…

Advent of Lucifer Day 19: Little Ones

Little one gotta heed my warning Devil is kind He come in early morning Devil is fine He go by many names Devil is kind We gonna go home to the flames Devil is fine — Zeal & Ardor, Devil is Fine Little Ones Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer Most of us have come to have small, dependent things in our care. Whether they be children, pets, plants,or wild animals we steward. While we are nourished by our little loves, caring for them can be stressful at the best of times, and this anxiety is only compounded by our certain knowledge of the mindless destruction and terror in…

Advent of Lucifer Day 18: Beauty

Desire for beauty will endure and undermine the desire for truth. ― Richard O. Prum, The Evolution of Beauty: How Darwin’s Forgotten Theory of Mate Choice Shapes the Animal World—And Us Beauty Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer Luciferians and Satanists are in a state of aesthetic crisis, though many of them don’t realize it. We are building no monuments, no stained glass, no great paintings. There are two poles in our aesthetic world: First is the rock bottom, cheap, wrinkle-robed, mass produced Halloween decoration aesthetic. Don’t get us wrong, we love the kitsch of Halloween. Adore it, even. But what started as irreverence eventually, lazily, became fused with…

Advent of Lucifer Day 17: Innocence

The knowledge that makes us cherish innocence makes innocence unattainable. — Irving Howe Innocence Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer Innocence is an abstract concept. There can be no human innocence, as human morality is far too fluid and changes from one social group to another – what makes a person saintly to one group might make them monstrous to another. Diversity and experience – both valuable human qualities – preclude the existence of objective innocence among human beings. Innocence presumes exclusion from a moral community; in order to be truly innocent, one cannot participate in morality at all. Obviously, this is not a realistic model for people who…

Advent of Lucifer Day 16: The Cryptid

Some are born mad, some achieve madness, and some have madness thrust upon ’em. ― Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls The Cryptid Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer If you’ve found yourself reading half way into a series of miniaturized sermons on Luciferianism during an event called the Advent of Lucifer, there’s a good chance you’re a bit of a weirdo by conventional cultural standards. The good news is that novelty seeking is associated with better health and happiness. This might seem unintuitive in a society that actively punishes deviation from a small handful of acceptable personality models for tax cattle, but hear me out: having…

Advent of Lucifer Day 15: Sacred Rage

Of course we did it to ourselves; we had always been intellectually lazy, and the less asked of us, the less we had to say. We all lived for money, and that is what we died for. — William Vollmann, Carbon Ideologies Sacred Rage Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer We have a lot to be mad about, and make no mistake, insensate rage is a perfectly appropriate response to most of it. Of course, American capitalism treats people like livestock and you are neither allowed to interfere with the tax cattle, or with those extracting wealth from them. Our grandchildren will wonder that the least of us allowed…

Advent of Lucifer Day 14: They/Them

Some people are born in the mountains, while others are born by the sea. Some people are happy to live in the place they were born, while others must make a journey to reach the climate in which they can flourish and grow. Between the ocean and the mountains is a wild forest. That is where I want to make my home. ― Maia Kobabe, Gender Queer They/Them Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer To be Luciferian is to often find yourself feeling neither fish nor fowl. We don’t tend to fit neatly into political camps. Christians frequently seem unable to be reasonable about us or our beliefs, and…

Advent of Lucifer Day 13: The Stranger

“I don’t know why people are so keen to put the details of their private life in public; they forget that invisibility is a superpower.” ― Banksy The Stranger Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer We are outsiders. We belong to a super minority religion, one of the last ones it is socially acceptable and encouraged to hate. Our heroes are the main antagonists in some of the most pervasive, hateful, and arbitrary stories ever told. To live openly is to alienate and self-isolate into oblivion. To lie feels disingenuous, a betrayal of our values which are, if anything, more socially intelligent and empathetic than the very people who…
