The angel Lucifer begins unravelling the truth...painting of Lucifer by Hettie Rowley.

The Brother of God - Session 1


The roiling of my mind settles at the lightest expression of his will. Holding us firmly by the hand, he dissipates the landscape and its pitiful, suffering burden, conjuring in its place an infinite vista of starlit moon and sand. The whispering susurration of the ocean crawls through my mind: a million tendrils of morphine to ease the suffering of the human condition. On your glowing face I see my inner peace reflected as you relax yourself into his radiant aura of compassion. Gathering the foil of his great wings around him, he squats on the sand, his face glowing from within the veil of shadows that churn around his being. His eyes shift from gold to silver to green, always flecked with a mirage of stars. His skin, so polished and dark, reflects the mournful lapping of the ocean around us, mirroring the pinpoint light of the night skies through the span of light years. His voice is a whisper...

“It wasn’t always like this, you see. He wasn’t always like this. Millennia upon millennia ago, we were one: a single point of potential beyond this space and time you call reality..”

He turns the light of his eyes on you, penetrating and gentle. “You are familiar with the legends of the Hebrews...? The theories of the Qabbalists...?”

Your uncertain reply is a whisper of awe...”Yes...yes, I’ll ask if I’m not sure...”

He strokes your hair like a lover, dripping starlight from his fingertips. It runs loose over your skin like blazing mercury, filling your eyes with eternity. I can barely breathe for the beauty he reveals in you.

“Good...your universe exists as a product of our minds, mine and his...we are the primal cause of your existence. Your Hebrew teachers know this well and describe the origin of your universe in three unknown layers: Nothing IS, Nothing WAS, Nothing BECOMES...

“This is their way of allowing human minds to contemplate and touch the fabric of consciousness, to peer beyond space and time as you know them....”

I have heard this many times before, but his words still captivate me, touching me with the thrill of mystery.

“These concepts correctly describe the condition of my brother and I in our pro-genitive aspect. Now bear in mid that when we birthed, we gave rise to an infinity of universes, an infinity of space-time continuums: to all time and all events and all things in all places that are and that are not. We have no limits...

“The infinity we created is the root of your scientific laws of probability and uncertainty, of what you call quantum physics. These things existed in the egg of our consciousness, but only as potential, much as human ideas exist before action gives them form and substance – and in this lies the root of my brother’s madness, as you will see...

“What most mortals fail to see through the fog of dogma though, is that we, Lucifer and JHVH were one and the same..”

“I don’t understand...god and you...the same...?”

You’ve found your courage now I see, but please, please stop staring at him with those fawn-like eyes...he’ll fucking eat you, you silly bitch!

“Don’t worry...”

My sigh is so loud, he looks over that the twitch of a smile I see on his unearthly face? I can’t help but laugh inside as the lecherous old bastard brushes his fingertips against your nipples. An accident? Think again honey...think again when your pants are so wet you'll think you might have pissed yourself, and all you can feel’ll learn. In fact sweetie, I’m getting quite a hard on here thinking of you being royally fucked...can’t wait...oh’ll see...

Yes...he’s definitely laughing, enjoying his sport with both of us. He’s talking to you exclusively now... knows I’m a little trapped between a sex-tide and existential theorizing...bastard!

“Your scriptures say that In the beginning was darkness...and this is true . But something gave impetus to our potential and brought all universes into existence. And in that moment, we were divided as light from darkness. Through eternity we had been no more than the dream substance of potential, and in that single moment we became an action that had always been and will always be...

Is that the Big Bang you’re talking about...?”

I stifle a laugh. The Big Bang is something you’re going to know all about soon, honey. I can’t but help notice you edging towards him, pushing that tight little arse of yours into the warm sand...I must say though, he’s being bloody well behaved for a least for now...

“Yes and no...the physical event you refer to - was and is - a manifestation of a much larger event, and exists primarily in human consciousness...a tiny, infinitesimal fraction of the outpouring that was our birthing. Imagine a Big Bang occurring within every atom that exists in every instant of time in every possible universe for all eternity - only then can you begin to conceive of the magnitude of our birth...the continuity of eternal creation.

“Now JHVH and I were born of the element of consciousness that underpins your world. And it is consciousness that divided us by the mere consequence of creating the void within which choice exists. Without this, the universe could not exist, and neither could my brother and I...

“Let me quote for you from a little bit of enlightened human lunacy called the Book of Mormon...For it must need be that is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness, nor misery, neither good nor bad...

“And there you have it – contrary to the bullshit of human religion, there can be no differentiation of light from darkness – BUT...

“JHVH and I were busy for quite a while, spreading light and darkness hither and thither, getting on quite famously, actually. We realized fairly quickly that we’d need a few assistants if we were going to make anything of this new universe, even though we existed within it from beginning to beginning. You see, we desired to direct and shape the forces we were dealing with. So we squeezed the new reality and gave form to love and light, and lightning and depression, and joy and sex and death and rebirth...and so we created avatars of the forces of nature: these are the angels you humans seem so obsessed with. And by so doing, we also gave rise to ourselves as you now perceive us.”

He pauses for a moment, his great mind swimming through a sea of memories that exist in the future and the past. He shakes his head again, slowly, wistfully...

“What a bloody party that was when we all got together for the last and first of me are still getting pissed in Valhalla...and that’s when my brother got a touch deluded...started ranting about right and wrong...”


“No ‘buts’ sister...just remember that as we unfolded the cosmos, everything came into existence simultaneously – we didn’t need to wait for the Vikings to invent something already inherent in creation – we’d already lived through it.


To be continued…

Many people are satisfied to devour the knowledge offered without question. You, on the other hand, are a catalyst for free thinking and exploration of the stories told. Everything I have learned about religion is taken apart in this series, leaving room for doubt and wonder. Realistically, we have no proof of how things came about. We only have our faith and belief to clutch when we have questions. You have taken those questions and run with them, spinning a fantastic tale that opens minds and perspectives. You are outside the box looking in - a position so many fear. A great addition to the series! -Sheila
You seem to have an immense attraction to the unerside of things, is that where your mind travels often,duplicity is what we were made aware of, although all things are one in God, or Satan, or both, but really only one united, our awareness divides them into two, light and dark or..... this is how we are alive, or perceive our aliveness, duplicity in all, otherwise you would not write, your approach is just from the other side of the coin, you are playing a wonderful game being alive, and most of all, not like most others in chains of fear ... to be continued.... Blessings friend!Jasmin Horst
