“When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior 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.” –Manly P. Hall, 33rd “The Lost Keys of Freemasonry” page 48
“Lucifer, the Light-bearer ! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! It is he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not!”- Albert Pike Morals and Dogma, p.
“…that which we see as Free Masonry today is an attempt by the HIERARCHS OF FIRE, the Lucifer Spirits, to bring us the imprisoned spirit ‘LIGHT,’ that by it we may SEE and KNOW.” –FREEMASONRY AND CATHOLICISM by Max Heindel 1865-1919
“Those who follow the path of faith or the heart, use water, and are known as the Sons of Seth, while those who follow the path of the mind and action are the Sons of Cain, who was the son of Samael, the Spirit of Fire. Today, we find the latter among the alchemists, the hermetic philosophers, the Rosicrucians, and the Freemasons.”- Manly P. Hall, 33rd , “Initiates of the Flame”
For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God PAN; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend. Gold, to the eyes of the Initiates, is Light condensed.”- Albert Pike Morals and Dogma, p.102
“And Lucifer, the one rejected by man as the devil, is the one who must through the planet Mars send man the dynamic energy which man himself must transmute from the fire of passion to the flame of spirit. He then must take the tools of the craft and cut and polish his own being into the cap stone of the Universal Temple.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg. 83
