Therapy & Cure By S. D. Lucifer
Excerpts from the Introduction:
Mr. Woody Allen,
is a play for your consideration as possible movie
material. It is offered to the entertainment world
as one small step for mankind, a point of light at
the end of Plato's cave.
know you like New York but look what happened on
September 11, 2001. A boost in consciousness for
the species is becoming essential, before its level
of ignorance reaches a critical mass and New York
becomes a cinder in the sad eye of radioactive history.
Mankind is at stake here Woody, and God's Therapy
& Cure By S. D. Lucifer reflects a consciousness
that promises to change the face of the planet once
its seeded into movie theaters, potentially resolving
the ignorance of Homo sapiens by mutating the species."
God's Therapy & Cure By S. D. Lucifer we go beyond
the existential. The play begins with God's existential
position; a profound symbolism depicting the absurd
and pathetic condition of Homo sapiens symbolized
as General Peti, unconsciously played by God.
is a play within a humorous and therapeutic context,
offering genuine resolution in a nutshell, not only
for the audience but for God. You put it beautifully
when you said, Woody, that you were "two with
nature" (in a humorous sense). This is the basic
sin of Homo sapiens as well as God, the resolution
of which is the focus of the play." [pages
and Eve and their descendants had to suffer such
outrageous afflictions which were not just for Cosmic
Entertainment, but due to God's therapeutic process,
which was a little rough in the beginning. A benevolent,
sane god, just does not inflict such terror and suffering,
which was also His own agony (thoughts) while undergoing
Therapy by Lucifer. Yet never forget that it all
has Entertainment value for the Cosmic Play; intensity
of emotion with mental entanglement and derangement
was all simply missing from the Garden of Eden as
a kind of Perfection Paralysis. The early treatment
was a little gross, with manic-depressive overtones."
loss of self identity is God's fear in confronting
the Void, the very Emptiness holding up the illusory
edifice of Himself. No wonder Kali (the Great Goddess
disguised), in the Play, is so frightening. Union
with Her means utter annihilation of self, an apparent
stripping of all Form, but also the Great birth of
Suchness, Original Face. Yet this unveiling is nothing
more than a fundamental principle at the core of
everything created. Even atoms unite in the flame
of love, each separate entity dissolving into the
other to reveal a new being or whole or higher principle,
yet preserving original identity within the higher
whole (a molecule in this case). And so it is with
Homo sapiens that seek a deeper Self, struggling
for birth as Homo novus. One such mutant form in
history was Jesus Christ, and the message was love.
But to Know Christ is to be Christ (or Buddha, et
al, as that consciousness), to mutate, not to imitate.
(or Shakti, the Great Goddess in disguise), as a
more advanced god, in the Play (though not necessarily
in history), in Heaven's Dungeon, is the Feminine
Principle, a receptive function hidden in God that
is repressed due to his own Patriarchal or Male Principle
domination and distortion, a function of an early
but vulnerable exuberance of His Identity. The wedding
symbolizes the reconnection to this hidden Feminine
Principle of reception and incorporation for the
deeper Realization of the Void and His cure. Emptiness
(beyond the idea of nothingness) is greatly feared,
yet on the other side, or within, is the Eye of Everything
manifesting as Suchness, the Gushing forth of Love,
the Perfume of Spirit unveiled as Existence Itself.
in this Realization (which is only implied in the
play as the union with Kali), Realizes he is Part
and Whole simultaneously, and now Creates (performs
His Role as God) without separation (sin), and the
guilt hidden behind a defensive perfectionism that
was due to His exclusive identification of Himself
as God. He is now Knowingly the Suchness of things
Created, not just the Ideal Form or the projection
of the Subtle-mental constriction.
is also the Realization of the new Being, Homo novus,
which is a more aware and integral consciousness
than the former Homo sapiens. So, as the actors (Angels)
proclaim in the last lines, "Thank God!"
("And Shakti too!"). [Pages 53-54]
I think the entertainment sense of it almost demands
a musical and perhaps I should write to Mel Brooks
but I wanted to give you first shot as your humor
is not quite as gross.

From the back cover:
Act I of the play, not realizing he is God, and suffering
from amnesia and other psychiatric problems, General
Peti is confined to what he thinks is a military
mental ward, in therapy with Dr. Fag, alias Lucifer
Fag attempts various means, some questionable, in
order to recover God's memory. We learn not only that
god is missing in action but that the Earth play,
full of war and greed, has become melodramatic and
needs better scripts, requiring a mutation in species
(from Homo sapiens to Homo novus); like Lucifer engineered
in the Garden of Eden Play. In addition, Dr. Fag
suggests, he wants better press, his own play, and
historical clarification of his role.
Peti's memory seems to flash on and off regarding
his identity as God in a variety of dreams with which
Dr. Fag attempts analysis. Dr. Fag's apparent assistant,
the Nurse, increasingly reveals that Dr. Fag's therapy
is limited, and she begins to have a more assertive
role in the process. We discover the Nurse is actually
the Great Goddess who assumes a variety of roles
in the play as Nurse, Kali, and Shakti (also has
played roles as Eve and the Great Mother), and takes
over this Dream Play, becoming instrumental in God's
We learn in Act II
that God's Therapy takes place in Heaven's dungeon,
at the Academy of Gods in the Celestial City. General
Ignorance has taken command of Heaven, and the purpose
of recovering God's memory and power is to overthrow
General Ignorance from Heaven's Throne so we can
all have better quality of Play on Earth.

prepare you to understand the creative power, the experiential bliss,
the love and freedom that is at the center of yourself and the
universe. It is called transcendence or enlightenment and other names
known for centuries. It is the Source which has no beginning or end,
and which words and symbols can only point. It is beyond description,
logic, or belief but can be experienced.
The Birth of Homo novus, the author writes:
in the final stage-state of Realization, is Consciousness in Its
purest Condition beyond all conditions. It is This that is Love
without an opposite, Beauty without an object, good without evil,
Truth as It is, Life beyond death, the Freedom beyond all
confinement, and the Unknown within the Known."
Once a person has
made contact with the Source they are not the same. Nothing can be as
it was because now you Know, and you Know absolutely, not
conditionally, relatively, or with belief and ideation.
But most people
are victims of cultural beliefs and conditioning. Even the most
rudimentary examination of the lives around you, or your own life,

presently trapped in a morass of suffering; beliefs that determine

potential for joy is hidden. Homo sapiens must evolve or suffer the
consequences of an outmoded consciousness, the results of which are
appearing more acutely in the environment.
extended perceptual faculties are available to those who enter deeply
and beyond the guilt and fear created by belief systems imposed by
society. It is possible to Know the Source in yourself that has no
limitation and creates the freedom that is Homo novus, a new being,
and a consciousness beyond Homo sapienss' obsessive and compulsive
ego-maniacal demonstration. Homo novus, the identity that is the
Realization of your gift, is unique yet paradoxically and intimately
related to others beyond ego separateness - the experience of Oneness
does not mean sameness.
Know the Source, the dim consciousness of present level belief
systems, currently ruling and determining experience, will seem like
products of the Dark Ages. While the limitations or problems of these
old beliefs may persist, the individual who has Known the Source can
more consciously choose or not choose to operate those beliefs, and
create other beliefs to experience - problems become opportunities.

F. Taylor; Eclipse Press, 2000; Paperback, 103 pages, 4.5"x5";
The title of this book comes from a well known Zen statement made by
Seigen Ishin, a Buddhist monk. He said: "Before a man studies
Zen, to him mountains are mountains and waters are waters; after he
gets an insight into the truth of Zen through the instruction of a
good master, mountains are not mountains and waters are not waters;
but after this when he really attains to the abode of rest, mountains
are once more mountains and waters are waters."
For the purpose of this book and its explication of Awareness (or
Suchness, Isness, Enlightenment, et al), the above three
mountain-steps, in a process of becoming more aware, depict three
views from three types of mountains (states of perception). And so
the title, Third Mountain View, refers to the Understanding
and state of Perception stemming from This Mountain. The subject
matter of the enclosed E-mail discussions focuses around these three
views in some form: Duality (the usual everyday unconcerned ignorance
-- 1st mountain); some "insight," maybe some
glimpse of the Real Mountain out of the corner of the eye, or
experiencing the 2nd mountain momentarily as the
realization of Emptiness, a Void or the absence of self and mountain
(Note: this seems like a logical negation of 1st mountain,
and often appears as a negative view of life to some. But what it
Reveals is the Third Mountain View, which is the affirmation
of Life). The full Third Mountain View is neither duality nor
non-duality and both. There are many ways attempting to express the Third
Mountain View, but all are just a pointing. The state of
Ignorance of the egoic self will not be dispelled by intellectual or
metaphysical knowledge. Yet the struggle to Understand What is Hidden
is an integral part of the process of Understanding. So the struggle
to climb the 2nd mountain is an important part of the
process. It represents the hunger for deliverance in the winding down
of 1st mountain illusion and trance conditions; and
sometimes, also, there are special effects or extra-ordinary views in
the 2nd mountain climb that were not seen from the 1st
But in the 3rd Mountain View, "the abode of rest"
is the Realization that we are all being Lived. It is the
Realization of Suchness and Wholeness as Being the Unity, without
separation from What Is in all distinction, as What Is. It is the
Realization of Love as It Is where there is no separation between
heart and mind, yet the Flow is from Heart through Mind as Spirit
which makes everything possible. This is a Real and Knowable state of
mind (the most real). It is the Freedom sought behind all illusion,
oppression, subtle or gross, from self or other. It is the very basis
of the motivation to climb all Mountains of any height, and the
source of all becoming.

People have lost the deeper sense of intimacy with things…have become

thought is the result of memory, and memory is a tape from the past
that appears to control both the present and the future. We have
a lot of junk tapes that control us and create junk lives. We have
this memory that creates conditions that create false identities
that limit what or who we really are. These old moldy tapes, which
are not seen as old moldy tapes, prevent the new, the flow of life,

The basic premise is that Homo sapiens are an antiquated species.
They have served their purpose as having established a base upon the
planet, being the best killers, while developing their minds as self-conscious
creatures. But this is a somewhat retarded operation at this time,
without further understanding or development beyond the fusion with
various belief systems or mental operations.
Homo sapiens represent the adolescence of the human being. It is
still a species that postures for identity and power. It is motivated
by fear, the base of its operations. Defense is its structural pose
and upon which its identity is grounded. The very structure of the
self is maintained by "defense mechanisms." All this
creates a limited and constricted consciousness; energy which is
repressed and wasted, but waiting to emerge in a more creative being.
The creative release of this energy requires a new form to contain
and mold. This is Homo novus.
The essays expose the limitation and constriction of Homo Sapienss'
consciousness within personal, social, and political realms as well
as suggest the solution, which is transcendence. Transcendence is the
mutation from Homo sapiens to Homo novus, a new being. This is a
shift in consciousness from the fused and embedded constriction of
the "mental-self" to wider more inclusive and Aware realms.
The shift is not simply an intellectual understanding, but an actual
vertical step of consciousness beyond the mental or intellectual
realms and into the heart and spaciousness of higher consciousness.
From a developmental point of view, this shift is a mutation and not
a variation of species. The shift does not create a better person or
society, but a new society altogether. The shift includes the lower
level developments of mind and intellect but begins to incorporate
what the lower mind tends to exclude (Wholeness, Intuition, Love, et al).
But in order for this shift to take place, whether in individual or
society, observation of the constricted behavior with a Seeing and
Hearing Awareness may need to begin. The essays in Radical
Consciousness are a kind of
observation from this perspective.

HOW TO MUTATE
is awareness beyond thought and the self; this is the goal
to know. There is a long historical
tradition, the perennial
philosophy. It is the enlightenment factor,
It has been called Suchness, Moksha, What
is, Immortality, Kensho,
God Realization, Satori, Enlightenment,
Sahaj Samadhi, Bhava Samadhi,
Nirvana, Heaven, Tao, Void, Love, Bliss, Truth, etc.
Awareness (another word for a kind of enlightenment or
consciousness) is the very ground of being.
It is not an
epiphenomenon of matter; it may come through
the brain but not
from it. The brain does not produce it.
Rather, the brain is
produced by Awareness. The brain (among
other things) is a
material substance that can record
experiences. Thoughts, among
other things, are recordings that gradually
produce an identity
based upon unique experiences (since no two
brains occupy the
same space at the same time). This memory
accumulation (as well
as DNA configurations) is called the self.
Most of the
attachments to thought, which are both the
cause and effect of
experience, tend to define, limit, and
determine the personality
or character -- our ego identities. Hence,
belief systems of
various kinds are running the show in which
most Homo sapiens are
trapped or hypnotized. These beliefs produce
the wars and man's
social and psychological/pathological
diseases. This is the
"sleep," that is also perennial,
to which various awakened ones
attempt to point in order to help awaken
others from the
ignorance of this sleep, or ignorant
attachment to beliefs.
is the observation of the above process of thought and
memory accumulation (emotion, beliefs, etc)
by a particular
brain. This is "witnessing" the
process rather than being
attached to any particular content (of
thought, emotion, etc.).
The view from such a position
(witness) eventually allows the
observer to transcend thought. Transcending
thought is also the
transcendence of the ego-self as this self
is just a group of
thoughts and attached memories, etc. A gap
occurs, and a shift,
and something opens to other dimensions.
This is the mutation.
Reference can be made
to the particle and wave in quantum
mechanics. The more "certain" you
are of being "fixed" as a
particular identity (a particle, a discrete
material thing or
thought; where your consciousness is fused
with the idea of
yourself), the less certain you are of
momentum or the dance of
Awareness as Suchness. The more
"you" disappear as thought or
ego-self (separated and detached from the
fused identity of self)
the more Suchness appears not as a thing but
as another level of
consciousness beyond the ego-self (the wave
function in quantum
mechanics, as analogy).
The ego-self, like the brain,
is more like animated dead matter,
or a particle without any real life. It is a
pure cause and effect stuff that gives the
illusion of life with
various reactive emotional attachments
and belief systems -- this is
conditioned existence, determined and
mechanical. This is the
usual self, a conditioned robot in which
Awareness is imprisoned,
fused, or captured, and results in the
particular level of
evolutionary development that we generally
see today (which is in dire
need of mutation, expansion, or a shift out
of the fused/retarded condition).
What is the meaning of your life?
Just sincerely look and see.
Just see that your ego-life contains a kind
of dread and lacks
joy. Watch how mechanical it all is. Watch.
Observe how thoughts and
beliefs are actually determining your
experience (plus or minus). Become the
Witness. A radical awakening is at hand. A
is about to happen. This is not just another
content happening in the brain. No, this is
beyond experience and
content. It is what happens outside content
and experience. It is
Awareness in which content and experience
(similar to the space in which quantum
objects appear). You are
that Space as well as the content that
accumulates. In that Space
is creativity, the Unknown, the mystery of existence.
So it is actually quite simple to
mutate. Just shift to the
"space" domain which is more akin
to the wave function than the
particle function. You have all the
Of course it is not likely that you
will use it
as your conditioning is too overwhelming
(the quantum condition is
habitually collapsed into the known
condition of self before you generally
become conscious of the beauty and nature
of Awareness -- Samadhi,
higher realms, etc. Nevertheless,
it is always possible to mutate (the
quantum wave function is a fundamental
condition of space-consciousness)
and evolution waits your interest and
determination which is required.
When you develop the ability to
shift to higher level observations,
and do so with increased frequency and
integration with the hard-body-copy
(physical-structural form), the more you
become a Buddhi
consciousness rather than just an
ego-consciousness. This process
is the evolution of consciousness in the making.
If you understand the above
you've just saved yourself thousands of dollars in consciousness
expanding fees and very possibly have saved the world from almost
certain destruction based upon its present ignorant course of retarded
development, in terms of present political and corporate designs of
power and greed.

But what kind of freedom? There are
many kinds of freedom. Those with
the greatest freedoms have merely
been able to exploit others who have
not made use of their freedom to
do the same. If freedom has meant
anything, historically, it is the
freedom to exploit others. It is
our God-given right to be free to
deprive others of liberty, who don't
know what to do with it anyway. To
coerce others into a neo-fascist
way of life is "manifest destiny,"

liberty is really only a very modern
phenomena. Individual rights are
completely absent from Roman and
Greek conceptions (and also from
Jewish, Chinese, and most other ancient
civilizations). And let's not forget
that a "Democracy" can
be a cover for a despotism that is
as brutal and tyrannical as any dictatorship,
and that a benevolent dictatorship
can give the masses more freedoms
than a Democracy that has never existed

The Absolute Solution
1. The Spiritual Mind/Quest
The hard shell of the ego has served its
purpose. The next phase, the Spiritual Quest, is the opening of this
shell to reveal Life beyond the ego-mind.
What is the nature of our inquiry? What are we
seeking? Are we looking for something beyond ourselves or are we not
in the process of discovering ourselves?
Secret & Essential Mysticism
In our understanding of mysticism we are after
the Secret, the fundamental Secret, not a few games. What is the
fundamental mystery of our existence? Essential Mysticism deals with
that fundamental problem and solves it Absolutely.
Undoing: Going Within
The true material (our reactions) are the
situational teachings. Any teaching or teacher worth anything is
going to make us aware of our "stuff" because it is this
that is covering the Divine.
To Understand either Love or Right is the only
step necessary, which is the first step. But since we have forgotten
what that step is about, methods are used to help us remember.
As groups evolve, they evolve a structure, a
morality, or a tradition. It is this tradition and structure that
becomes a barrier to change. . .Freedom does not mean that I become
more of myself, but that I have less of a self to become.
"World" and Racism: The psychology of Hell
Hell is wherever "you" are.
Myth, and Humpty Dumpty
Eros cannot ultimately be confined to the
artificial boundaries of society's myths.
Problem of Evil?
Most today are still "falling" for
the promises of the snake, the hiss of hell, and the "good"
ego life. This is perhaps a natural evolutionary phase. But it is
nothing more than a limited reality of consciousness; a dream
nightmare compared to the Reality of the Light radiating from the
Tree of Life.
"The Last Temptation of Christ": Beyond Tradition
It is not until one sees through all illusion
(good or evil), that the Crucifixion is complete, and the
Resurrection, the final Realization, is Known.
Jesus And The Samaritan Woman: Two Levels of Consciousness
Jesus did not propose another belief. He did
not suggest another ritual of translation from one belief to another.
He spoke about transformation, a transcendence from one level of
consciousness to another.
Jesus and Nicodemus: Faith and Belief
All true religions establish in some form, the
process symbolizing the return to what we are, a Self beyond the ego.
But this process is often lost within the surface beliefs of
"Lord's Prayer" (A Method of Transcendence)
True prayer or meditation is a quality of
action. It is not concerned with the results of what it will bring,
but is itself an entrance to the Kingdom, which brings Its own results.
Death & Resurrection of Jesus (The Ultimate "Let-Go")
The crucifixion is a dramatic symbolism of
"letting go" and entering a higher Life. It is out of this
transcendence, the return to the Garden, that Something Blooms all by
Itself -- Self, Love, Beauty, Truth, Freedom.
Interview With Jesus Christ
"What I represent in history or religion
is not what I am. I am not an idea, yet it is the idea, a product of
the imaginative mind that is sought: This can never be Truth.
Religions provide some instruction, some ethics or morality, but
morality is not Love."
Truth is never borrowed. It only happens
individually. It is not something that can be taught. It is not
information or dogma. No one can give it to us. We are on our own,
alone. There is no outer authority.
Freedom Beyond Myth
Myths are not only to be lived, explored, and
questioned, but to be transcended in the realization of their limitation.
". . .But when the mind looks at the
Absolute it generates paradox because the Absolute is beyond the
mind's duality -- the natural way the mind knows things at its
present level of knowing. It also tends to generate morality and
religious meaning and ritual. But the only way to Know the Absolute
is to become It, and this is a radical spiritual transformation, an
individual direct opening beyond ego-mind. This is the essential
