HOLY GRAIL IN THE
LIGHT OF TRUTH
List Of Lucifer's "Accomplishments"
The only reason it is now possible for us to survey so clearly
Lucifer's "accomplishments" is because his objectives and
tactics have been exposed for the first time in the Message
brought down from the Holy Grail: "IN
THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE" by Abd-ru-shin.
1). Enticing man into
one-sided over-cultivation of his intellect (the frontal part of
the brain). This disrupted the perfect balance, which originally existed
between the frontal part of the brain (the intellectual brain) and the
back part of the brain (the intuitive brain). The resulting suppression
and stunted development of the intuitive brain (the cerebellum) makes it
much more difficult for a man of today to comprehend all things spiritual,
because only the back brain has a direct connection with the
spirit-core within man. (For a full explanation read chapter "Intuitive Perception" from
The Grail Message).
"From the very beginning, however, mankind's greatest guilt
has lain in placing this intellect, which can only produce what is
incomplete and without life, on a high pedestal, and virtually dancing
around it in worship. It was given a place that should have been
reserved for the spirit alone.
action is entirely opposed to the ordinances of the Creator and thus to
nature, because these are anchored in what takes place in nature.
Therefore nothing can lead to a true goal either, but everything must
fail at the point where the harvest is due to set in. lt cannot be
otherwise, but is a natural happening that is to be expected.
in purely technical science, in all industry, is it different.
This has reached great heights through the intellect, and will even
advance much further in the future! This fact, however, serves to prove
the truth of my explanations. Technical science in all its
aspects is and will always remain purely earthly, lifeless. Now since
the intellect likewise belongs to all that is earthly, it is able to
develop brilliantly in the technical sciences, and can accomplish really
great things. Here it stands in its right place, in its real
wherever anything "living", thus purely human, has to be
considered as well, the intellect by its nature is not adequate, and
must therefore fail if it is not then guided by the spirit! For
spirit alone is life. Success of a specific kind can always be achieved
only by the activity of the homogeneous kind. The earthly intellect will
therefore never be able to do spiritual work! For this reason placing
the intellect above life has become the grave offence of this
Contrary to the creative, thus wholly natural ordinance, man
has therewith directly reversed his task, and has, so to speak,
turned it upside down by yielding the supreme place that belongs to the
living spirit to the intellect, which comes in the second and purely
earthly place. Through this it is again quite natural for man now to be
obliged painfully to seek from below upwards, whereby the superimposed
intellect, with its limited capacity to comprehend, obstructs any
broader view, instead of his being able to look down from above through
he wishes to awaken he is compelled first to 'transpose the lights'. To
put the intellect, which is now above, in the place given to it by
nature, and restore the spirit to the supreme position. This necessary
transposition is no longer so easy for the man of today. -
change of order that men introduced in bygone times, so incisively
directed against the Will of the Creator, thus against the Laws of
Nature, was the actual 'fall of man', the consequences of which
cannot be more terrible; for in due course it developed into 'inherited
sin', because the elevation of the intellect to the position of sole
ruler again brought in its wake the natural consequence that, in the
course of time, such one-sided cultivation and activity also
strengthened the brain one-sidedly, so that only the part which has to
do the work of the intellect grew bigger, and the other part was bound
to become stunted. Thereby the part that has become stunted through
neglect can only operate today as an unreliable dream-brain, even then
being still under the powerful influence of the so-called day-brain,
which activates the intellect.
the part of the brain which should form the bridge to the spirit, or
rather the bridge from the spirit to everything earthly, is thereby
paralysed; a connection is broken, or at least very much loosened,
whereby man has cut off for himself all spiritual activity, and with it
also the possibility of 'animating', spiritualising and inspiring his
parts of the brain should have been developed absolutely equally,
for joint harmonious activity, like everything in the body. The
spirit leading and the intellect carrying out here an earth. It is
obvious that because of this all the activity of the body too, and even
the body itself, can never be what it should be. For naturally what has
taken place affects everything! Because the most essential factor for
all earthly things is thereby missing!
is easy to understand that the cutting off was simultaneously linked
with the withdrawal and estrangement from the Divine. Indeed, there was
no longer any way to lt.
Finally this in turn had the disadvantage that already for
thousands of years, owing to the ever-increasing hereditary factor,
every child's body that is born brings with it to the earth the frontal
intellectual brain so large that, from the outset and because of this
condition, each child is again readily submitted to the intellect the
moment this brain develops its full activity. The gulf between the two
parts of the brain has now grown so wide, and their functions so
proportionately unequal, that with the majority of all mankind an
improvement can no longer be achieved without catastrophe.
intellectual man of today is no longer a normal human being,
but lacks any development of the principal part of his brain that
belongs to the complete human being, because he has allowed it to become
stunted for thousands of years. Without exception, every intellectual
has only a crippled
normal brain! Therefore brain-cripples have been ruling the
earth for thousands of years; they regard the normal human being as an
enemy and seek to subjugate him. In their crippled condition they
imagine that they accomplish a great deal, and they do not know that the
normal human being is in a position to achieve ten times as much,
producing works of a permanent nature which are more perfect
than the present efforts! The way is open to every really serious seeker
to acquire this ability!
intellectual, however, will no longer so easily become able to grasp
something that belongs to the activity of this stunted part of his
brain! He is simply incapable of it, even if he should desire it;
and solely because of his voluntary restriction he ridicules everything
that he is unable to attain, and which owing to his really retarded,
not normal brain will never at any time be understood by him
therein lies the most terrible part of the curse of this unnatural
aberration. The harmonious co-operation of both parts of the human brain
that absolutely belongs to a normal human being, is definitely
impossible for the present-day intellectuals, who are called
be a materialist is really no recommendation, but evidence of a stunted
the unnatural brain has hitherto ruled on this earth; and finally
its activity must obviously also bring about the inevitable collapse in
all things, since everything, no matter what it wishes to produce,
naturally contains discord and ill-health even from the very start,
owing to the stunting.
Nothing of this can now be changed any more, but one must
calmly let the naturally developing collapse come about. Then,
however, will be the day of resurrection for the spirit, and also for a
new life! The slave of the intellect, who has held the reins for
thousands of years, will thus be disposed of for ever! Never again will
he be able to arise, because the evidence and his own experience will
finally compel him voluntarily to submit at last, ill and spiritually
impoverished, to that which he was unable to grasp. Never again
will he be given the opportunity to oppose the spirit, either by
scoffing or by the semblance of right through imposing force, such as
was also used towards the Son of God, Who had to fight against
there would still have been time to avert such misery. But now it is too
late; for in the meantime the loosened connection between the two parts
of the brain can no longer be bridged." (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF
TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE", chapter "Once Upon a Time..." - Listen to the
entire chapter in MP3, 1:01:32)

unfolding of his spirit, which strives of its own accord to tread the
path upwards as soon as it is not fettered or earthbound by
main evil, however, remains the one-sided and too greatly cultivated
intellect which, puffed up, lolls about on a ruler's throne that it is
not entitled to.
It resembles an animal that renders very good service
only when controlled, but which in any event has a harmful effect as soon as
it is allowed to be independent.

is the same with every person and his intellect. And since the intellect
not only remained dependent upon the habitation assigned to it, i. e.,
upon the particular human body, but enforced complete freedom of
movement for itself, which is without limit an earth, the whole
of mankind had to accommodate themselves to its volition.
Nowhere are they safe from it, it lurks dangerously
everywhere, ready to apply its sharp claws or destructive teeth wherever
a person appears who is not willing to submit to it!
is how it looks on earth today! The animal at first so tenderly
cared for has grown to an immense strength, it cannot again be compelled
by any man to give useful service! And so it now creates sad
havoc, in which you are already partly involved, and which will become
even worse because you are incapable of commanding the beast to stop!

easily have controlled the animal if they had only trained it aright

peace-loving earthly citizens!

limit to it, divesting it of its power and leading it again on paths
where it can only work beneficially!

MESSAGE", chapter "The Primordial Spiritual Planes
2). Distorting the real
purpose of the Mission of Jesus Christ. Once again,
Abd-ru-shin, as the only one who is able to expose Lucifer's
tactics, explains the nature of this tragic distortion of
Christ's Mission and how it was carefully orchestrated by Lucifer,
who succeeded in engaging the help of the church:
of the Son of God lay in His Word, in bringing the Truth from
Luminous Heights, in order to show mankind their way to the Light! This
had been closed to them up till then, because their spiritual
development had previously made it impossible for them to walk on that road!
right choice of bait is the main thing for each catch.
as this was intended for human souls, a plan based on their
weaknesses was skilfully devised. The lure had to correspond to the
main weakness! And this main weakness of the souls was love of ease, the
indolence of their spirit!
church knew very well that it was bound to achieve great success as soon
as it showed much leniency towards this weakness, and did not
require it to be overcome!
Recognising this aright, it built for earthen a broad and
easy road that was ostensibly to lead to the Light, and displayed it
enticingly to these earthmen who would prefer to give one-tenth of the
fruits of their labour, go on their knees and murmur prayers by the
hundred, rather than exert themselves spiritually for even one
Therefore the church took the spiritual effort away from men,
also pardoning all their sins if they were obedient outwardly and in the
earthly sense, and carried out what the church required of them
in mundane ways!
Whether in the way of church attendance, confessions, in the
number of prayers, in tributes or in donations and bequests, no matter
what, the church was satisfied. They left the believers under a
delusion that everything they did for the church would also
secure them a place in Heaven.
if the church could allot these places!
However, the achievements and the allegiance of all believers
links them only with their church, not with their God! Neither
the church nor its servants can take away from or even forgive a human
soul one particle of its guilt! Just as little are they permitted to
canonise a soul, and thereby interfere in God's perfect eternal
Primordial Laws of Creation, which are immutable!
can men presume to vote and also to decide on matters that rest
in the Omnipotence, the Justice and the Omniscience of God! How dare
earthmen try to make their fellow-men believe such things! And it is no
less sacrilegious for earthmen credulously to accept such claims, which
so plainly carry within them only a dishonouring of the Sublimity of
Anything so incredible can only be possible with thoughtless
people of herd mentality, who by such action brand themselves with the
mark of the greatest spiritual indolence; for the most simple reflection
must enable anyone instantly and easily to realise that such
presumptions cannot even be explained by human conceit or arrogance, but
contain grave blasphemies!
reciprocal effect must be terrible!"
"What does a man give to his God by obedience to the church!
He does not have with it a single, natural intuitive urge, which
alone can help him to ascend.
say to you that men can in truth only serve God with just that
which did not come to life through the churches: With their
own thinking and independent investigation! Everyone must
journey alone through the mills, through the mechanism of the
Divine Laws in Creation. And therefore it is necessary for every man
himself to become acquainted at the right time with the nature and
function of the mills.
this is just what many a church has persistently withheld, so that the
believers could not develop the necessary personal reflection and
intuitive perception. Thereby they robbed man of that staff which alone
can guide him safely and direct him towards the Light, and tried instead
to force upon every man an interpretation, the acceptance of which was
bound to bring benefit only to the church. Benefit, influence and
Human souls can serve their Creator only by the activity
of their own spirit! Thereby, however, in the first place they are
also simultaneously serving themselves. Only that human spirit
which stands bright and alert in this Creation, aware of its Laws and
adapting itself to them in thought and deed, is pleasing to God, because
it is then fulfilling the purpose of existence, which every human spirit
has in this Creation!
this never lies in the observances that the churches demand of their
believers! For these lack naturalness and free conviction, knowledge, as
the main requisite of true service to God! There is a lack of
vigour and joy in helping all creatures to advance, in letting their
souls exult in the happiness of knowing that they can contribute to the
beauty of this Creation as a part of it, and thereby thank and
honour the Creator!"
"Enticed by the sanctioned indolence of the spirit, endless
multitudes have allowed themselves to be drawn into the fold of the
church, which lulls them to sleep! They believed the wicked delusion of
a cheap atonement for their sins, and as the spiritually indolent masses
grew so did the earthly influence, with the final goal of earthly power!
The people did not see that the false view and teaching obscured and
defiled the Sacred Justice of Almighty God; they saw only the thus
simulated broad and easy road to the Light, which in reality does not
exist at all! Through its arbitrary, illusory forgiveness it leads to
Darkness and destruction!
self-glorification of all the churches, which is hostile to God,
separates their believers from God instead of leading them to Him. The
doctrines were false! But the people should easily have found this out
themselves, for they clearly contradict the simplest sense of
justice! And therefore the church believers are just as guilty as
the churches themselves!" (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE", chapter "Indolence of the Spirit" - Read the entire chapter.)
"There is nothing on the entire
earth that has dared to oppose
Christ and His Word more
than the church has done from the very beginning!
Nothing could be more
dangerous! Through the very pretence of wanting to serve God, the effect
for mankind was dreadful! Lucifer could not have had a better helper in
his hostile work against God. Here his subtle prompting of the earthly
intellect had achieved its greatest triumph! It had produced a
misleading falsification of all that should actually have come
into existence as willed by God! The pretence at genuineness was
successful. What was most valuable and should have led to God, he
had turned in the opposite direction through those who represented
themselves as, and very often considered themselves to be, God's
servants; he let it become an obstacle that was bound to hinder mankind
from advancing joyfully towards the longed-for Light! A move unequalled
in its audacity." (Abd-ru-shin)
"It is understandable
if disciples place first and foremost all that is personal about their
teacher and master, especially when this master was so abruptly and
brutally torn from their midst and, although utterly innocent, exposed
to the most terrible suffering and coarsest mockery, and finally put to
the most agonising death!
Such events would be
deeply engraved on the souls of those who had come to know their teacher
in the most ideal way while they lived together, and would quite
naturally cause them to place the personal element foremost in
everything they remembered. But the sacred Mission
The suffering thereby
wrought upon this great Bringer of Truth by mankind stands entirely on
However, what was
quite understandable and natural with the disciples resulted in many great errors in the later
religion! The essence of
the Divine Message receded far into the background before the personal
cult of the Bringer of Truth, which Christ never intended!
For this reason
mistakes are now evident in the Christian religion which will lead to
the danger of a breakdown unless the errors are recognised in time and,
through open confession, are courageously set right.
It cannot be expected
otherwise than that the smallest amount of serious progress must make
all these gaps visible! But then it is decidedly better not to avoid
them, but to tackle them boldly. Why should not this purification be
instituted by the leadership itself, freshly and cheerfully, with a free
upward gaze towards the Supreme Godhead? Great numbers of men would feel
as if freed from a pressure, which they
had indeed perceived but never really recognised as such, and
would gratefully follow a call leading them into the light of joyful
In following the
habit of those who blindly subject themselves to an unlimited
control of their intellect, and who thereby severely diminish their
ability to comprehend, they placed the same value on Christ's earth
life as on His Mission. His family relationships and all the earthly
events received even greater attention than the main purpose of His
Coming, which consisted of bringing enlightenment to the matured human
spirits about all the real
happenings in Creation, wherein alone they would find the
Will of God, which is woven into it and thus made available to them!
It was the bringing
of this Truth, up till then still unknown, which quite by itself necessitated Christ's coming
upon the earth. Nothing else! For without truly recognising the Will of
God in Creation no man can find the road of ascent to the Luminous
Realm, much less walk upon it!
Instead of simply
accepting these facts as such, becoming absorbed in the Message and living
accordingly, as the Bringer of Truth repeatedly and emphatically
demanded, the founders of the Christian religions and churches created
a personal cult as the
principal foundation, which forced them to make the suffering of Christ
mean something entirely different from what it really was!
They needed it for this cult! Finally, in the
course of further development, this quite naturally produced one great
error after another, which became obstacles for a great number of
people, preventing them as yet from properly recognising the right
This wrong structure, based on lack of objectivity, alone brought about the
distortion of all the happenings, it being inevitable that
factual impartiality was bound to cease from the moment when the
principal cult became purely personal! Thus the urge developed to anchor
the Mission of the Son of God mainly in His life on earth. Indeed this became a

sharply rejected the personal attitude taken towards Him! In every word
and every action he continually pointed to God the Father, Whose Will He
fulfilled and in Whose Power He stood and acted. He explained how
mankind should henceforth learn to look up to God the Father, but He never spoke of Himself in
His words dealing with this point were not heeded, it became inevitable
in the end that Christ's suffering on
earth was supposed to be regarded as necessary
and as ordained by God, and it was even declared to be part of His
main task in coming to
earth. According to this view He came from the Luminous Heights only in
order to suffer here on earth!

guilt, there remained only one explanation: He must have
taken the sins of others upon Himself in order to redeem them from those

foundation thus established?" (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE
GRAIL MESSAGE", chapter "Father, Forgive Them, For They Know Not What
"Neither was the
death on the cross a necessary sacrifice, but a murder, a
dastardly crime! Every other explanation is a misinterpretation which
either has its origin in ignorance or is meant as an excuse. Christ
certainly did not come to this earth with the intention of letting
Himself be crucified; neither does redemption lie in the crucifixion!
Christ was crucified because of His teaching, as a troublesome
Bringer of Truth!
It was not His death
on the cross that could and should bring redemption, but the Truth
He gave to mankind in His Word!
The Truth, however,
was irksome to the religious leaders and heads of the temples of that
time. It was an annoyance because it severely undermined their
influence. It would be exactly the same today in many places!
Mankind has not changed in this respect. The teachers of that time
took their standing, it is true, on the good old traditions as do those
of today, but through those who practised and interpreted them these
traditions had become nothing but rigid and empty forms, wholly wanting
in life, the same as may often be observed today!"
"His violent death,
in the form at the time used by the Romans to execute people, was not in
itself the redemption, nor did it bring redemption. It atoned for
none of mankind's guilt, liberated them from nothing, but
burdened them still more with a dastardly murder!
If still here and
there a cult has arisen which sees in this murder a necessary and
principal part of the Son of God's Work of Redemption, this only
distracts man's attention from the greater value which alone could bring
this redemption. It diverts him from the true mission of the
Saviour, from that which necessitated His coming from the Divine Sphere
to the earth!
The purpose of His
Mission, however, was not to suffer death on the cross, but to bring
the Truth into the maze of dogmatic rigidity and emptiness which
debase the human spirit, and to explain the relations between God, the
Creation and mankind as they actually are!

which covered up the reality, had feebly to fall away of their own
accord. Not till then could man see clearly before him the way leading
Redemption lies solely in the
bringing of this Truth and the consequent liberation from errors!
It is redemption from obscured

false state!" (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE",

you wish for, thus even making conditions about it!
presumption wherever you look! Nothing else!" (Abd-ru-shin,
"IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE", chapter "How the Message
Should Be Absorbed".)
"The human spirit
should at last get accustomed to the thought that it must bestir
itself most energetically to obtain grace and forgiveness and
thus fulfil the duty it has slothfully neglected! It must pull itself
together and work on itself if it would not fall into the darkness of
the damned!" (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE",
chapter "I Am the Lord Thy God!")
"You have been most
seriously poisoned and endangered by the false representation of the
Love of God, which you sought to divest of all vigour, all power and
clarity, enveloping it instead in an unhealthy weakness and harmful
indulgence, which was bound to plunge you all together into spiritual
indolence and thus into ruin.
Beware of the fatal
distortion of the concept of the Holy Love of God! You therewith fall
into a slumber which at first is pleasant, but which becomes the sleep
True love does
not lie in indulgence, and in a kindness that is expected to forgive
everything. This is wrong, and acts like a drug that only lulls the
spirits into lassitude and weakness, finally bringing on complete
paralysis and enforcing eternal death, since an awakening at the right
time is then impossible.
Only the severe
coolness of Divine Purity can penetrate the lassitude, and pave the way
for the true Love that leads to your spirits. Purity is severe, It knows
neither extenuation nor excuse. Therefore It will probably appear
ruthless to many a person who only too willingly tries to deceive
himself. But actually It only hurts where something is not in order.
Weakness brings harm
to yourselves as well as to those whom you imagine you are pleasing by
it. In time you will be judged by a Higher One with the kind of
justice that has become strange to you for a long time through
yourselves, for you have withdrawn from it.
It is the Divine
justice, unchangeable from eternity to eternity, and independent of
the opinions of men, free of their partiality, of their hate and their
malice, their power. It is Almighty, for it is of God!
Unless you devote
all your strength to severing yourselves from the old, you will
not learn to comprehend this justice either. But you will then likewise
not be able to become new within! And only the new man, who
stands in the Word of Life and strives towards the Light, will receive
the help that he needs to pass through the judgment of God."

3). Derailing earthly womanhood
by substituting the goal of motherhood for that of sublime
"A heavy burden
presses upon all earthly womanhood since the delusion was spread abroad
that woman's main vocation is motherhood. Some people look upon girls
who do not marry, and also upon women whose marriages are childless,
with false pity and frequently even with hidden malicious joy. The
expression 'old maid' or 'elderly spinster', which is really an
honorable name, is frequently used with an undertone
of mockery and a pitying shrug of the shoulders, as if marriage were the
highest goal for woman on earth, indeed her absolute vocation!
That this false
opinion has gained a foothold and spread so devastatingly over thousands
of years is one of the supreme achievements of Lucifer, who in aiming at
the debasement of womanhood delivered the most crushing blow at true
"This constraint must
now be removed from womanhood on earth if they are to ascend. Only from
the ruins of the present delusion can greatness and purity arise! The
God-Willed noble womanhood could not unfold through this most
cunning of Lucifer's plots against the human spirits, all of whom
could originally have done nothing but strive towards the Light had they
unerringly followed and submitted to the guidance of the Primordial Laws
at last, you men, for you are of the spirit! Recognise and also have
the courage to accept the fact that maternal bliss, which was considered
the highest goal and most sacred destiny of earthly womanhood, is rooted
only in the animistic! Woman's most sacred vocation, however,
lies much higher, lies in the spiritual!
Not once did
the thought occur to you that everything you have praised so far was
merely meant for the earth, for life on earth, with all its
restrictions! For marriage and procreation exist only in the
gross material part of this Subsequent Creation, whereas womanhood
exists in all Creation. This fact should give you cause to consider! But
no, this was expecting too much of you!"
"When in the first
upheavals of a new epoch youth wished to flee from this unhealthy
situation which, however, they had not recognised for what it really
was, this merely indicated an inner contradiction developing quite
subconsciously, a rebellion of the spirit which had been hitherto so
suppressed. Unfortunately they slipped into something much worse, into
the idea of free companionship and thus also of companionate marriage.
Although in a different form, yet it is basically still the same
excrescence of Lucifer's idea aiming at the debasement of
womanhood. No purity could arise therefrom because the Darkness lays a
sinister spell upon everyone, holding them firmly in its grip and
oppressing them continually!
That which was false
was bound to remain, even when it appeared in a different form.
The stroke that will liberate true womanhood can now only come from on
High. Mankind themselves are unable to achieve it because they entangled
and enslaved themselves too much!
Neither laws nor new
forms can help here any longer! Salvation lies only in an understanding
of all the Primordial Laws of Creation. At last you must accept the
truth as it really is, and not as you imagined it to be because you
were so susceptible to Lucifer's promptings!
Human womanhood was
debased and dishonoured by the thought that every woman is supposed to
consider motherhood as the principal purpose of her existence. For she
was thereby degraded and bound to the animistic. Lucifer had no
need to do more than disseminate this idea, which was thus absorbed and
gradually developed into the definite belief still dominating the human
mind today, forcing it into the very direction that prevents the
spirit from soaring upwards towards Pure and Luminous Heights!
Thus the dirty fists
of the Luciferian henchmen oppress the whole of earthly womanhood. Away
with them! Free yourselves now from the clutches that hold you down! For
this belief alone has brought in its train everything which must
dishonour woman. The beautiful little cloak of sacred motherhood, the
high praise bestowed upon mother-love, can never alleviate this pressure
of the dark fists, nor make these black fists luminous!
Listen to my words!
Through this belief earthwoman was made into a mother-animal! Wake up,
you girls, you women and you men, so that you may at last recognise the
absolute horror of this idea! One of your Sacred Rights is at stake!
Lucifer could well be
proud of this achievement!
I have already stated once before that through
womanhood Lucifer sought to deliver the most crushing blow against real
humanity and, alas, he succeeded only too well!
for yourselves the thought he has sown among you with great cunning and
malice! He deceitfully flattered you with the thought that motherhood
was woman's highest task. But to attain to motherhood the earthly
instinct is needed, and it is this latter which he
wanted to place on a higher pedestal through the thought of motherhood,
so that it would become the dominant factor and force the thinking of
mankind on earth into one direction. A plan which was conceived
with admirable cunning! He played upon your feelings as carefully as a
first class artiste plays upon his instrument, dangling motherhood and
mother-love alluringly before your eyes as a shield for his intentions,
so that you were unable to recognise what was lurking in the background!
And he succeeded completely!
heard the alluring tune vibrating purely within you, but you
overlooked the dirty, greedily clutching hands that brought forth the
melody! The highest goal and most sacred calling! That was before your
eyes, you saw it bright and luminous! But in spite of all its brightness
it is merely the purest radiation of the animistic, not of the
spiritual! The animal is set aglow and attains its greatest
height in motherhood, becoming merged in it and yielding itself
completely to it, because the animal itself originates in the
Animistic Sphere. It attains greatness therein and becomes bright and
luminous. Man, however, possesses something still stronger which should
and must stand above the animistic if he wishes to be a complete
human being ... the spirit!
the spirit he cannot and must not remain in the animistic. He must
refrain from making the highest of his goals something which
belongs unconditionally to the Animistic Realm, and which must forever
remain there in accordance with the Primordial Laws of Creation. With
exceptional cleverness Lucifer thus laid his snare, forcing the human
spirit into the animistic and holding it captive there. This was
achieved all the more easily because man saw all the beauty and
luminosity which emanates from everything that is pure, and which is
therefore also a part of the highest animistic radiation.
motherhood is certainly sacred, and its crown mother-love, but
nevertheless this is not the highest goal of human womanhood, not
their mission in Creation! Motherhood is rooted in the animistic and is
only set aglow by a pure volition. Even if this is not always so with
human beings, it is definitely always the case with animals.
of this, however, motherhood remains within the highest radiation of the
animistic, which alone can directly coalesce with gross matter. But only
he who has thoroughly studied and absorbed the Grail Message will
understand me fully here!
What Lucifer intended with his scheming came to pass, for he knew
precisely what would be the consequences of distorting the
Divinely-instituted Primordial Laws, which he thereby achieved through
men themselves! He only gave men a false goal which was nicely suited to
their spiritual indolence and weaknesses, and all their thinking and
perceiving were adjusted accordingly, causing them inevitably to take
Lucifer only shifted the points ,
and the catastrophe of derailment was
bound to follow! Lucifer had merely flattered the physical instinct in a
deceitful manner, thereby elevating it to an immense force and
Furthermore, he knew very well that the intellectual development
of man was bound to strengthen this powerful instinct through the
corresponding effect of thoughts which may increase the pernicious
desires to fever heat. Thus man finally became completely enslaved
within, something which can never happen to an animal!
beautiful word 'motherhood' remained nothing but the deceptive shield
which Lucifer deceitfully conjured up in your imagination. However, the
strengthening of the physical instinct, which was the inevitable
consequence, was his goal. As he had plainly foreseen, it finally
developed into morbidity, enslaved the minds of all people of both
sexes, and turned for many into the baffling sphinx - the form in which
the unhealthy instinct shows itself today, and against which man so
often fights a losing battle!
of the problem, as also its solution, lie solely in this Luciferian
thought, which was thrown out to you in defiance of the Laws which the
Will of God instituted in Creation for your benefit and for the general
development. And you, you reached out for it and were caught on it like
a hungry fish on the angler's hook, just because you found pleasure in
it! As for the male sex, its effect was like a serious and incurable
truth grasp and
hold within yourselves the idea of pure, sublime womanhood, and then you
will be free from these heavy chains that caused you such unspeakable
suffering and such anguish to your souls! Through this Luciferian
thought all earthly womanhood was robbed of what is noblest, woman
became the puppet and the prey of degraded male beings and, what is
more, a lovable mother-animal even to the serious-minded man! The air
then became charged with this false belief, as the popular saying goes;
in reality it came to life and took form in the Ethereal World, hovering
around you constantly and influencing you continually until you could
not help but absorb it!
I sever this evil
connection, for it is false!
Only when she has
become truly conscious of her womanhood does woman stand at the
highest place spiritually! And her task is not primarily
dedicated to motherhood! As I have already stated motherhood exists for
your earthly body only, that is all! Yet womanhood is to be found in all
spheres, even in the Primordial Realm among the Primordial
Beings, at the highest point! But it is true womanhood
in all its sublime, unapproachable dignity!
It may seem as if I
am taking much away from you when I now say that motherhood belongs only
to the Animistic Realm. It is a keen cut that I am now forced to
make if I am to help you! Motherhood remains within the realm of
the animistic, and manifests on that plane. If this were her highest
goal, woman would be in a very sad plight!"
"The highest task in
the life of woman on earth is the same as it has always been in the
higher regions - to ennoble her surroundings and ensure a continuous
flow of radiation from the Light, which only woman through the delicacy
of her intuitive perception can mediate. Ennoblement, however, is bound
to bring about ascent towards the Luminous Heights. That is spiritual
law! For this reason the existence of genuine womanhood is alone
enough irrevocably to ensure the ascent, ennoblement and continuous
purity of the entire Creation.
Lucifer knew this,
because it is contained in the Laws of Creation, and he tried to cut off
the development of this natural process with the harmful and false basic
idea which, in an enticing manner, portrayed the instinct of the
physical body and its effects as of the highest value. He thereby poured
poison into all true humanity, which thereupon unsuspectingly -
and to its own detriment - distorted the purely upward movement of the
straight paths of these Primordial Laws of Creation, so that they were
compelled to bring about a standstill and thereafter lead downwards,
thus bringing harm instead of blessing to all human spirits.
He knew what he was
doing thereby! By submerging and losing themselves in the animistic,
women on earth could not develop properly; they were bound to become
confused about themselves and their main vocation, and thus even brought
confusion into the Animistic World because they do not belong there.
principal task also here on earth, in the World of Matter, is to ennoble
her environment. Coming as she does from above, holding herself above
with her delicate intuitive perception, and thus leading upwards in
turn, she forms the anchorage of man with the Light, the support which he needs for his
work in Creation. No marriage is required to accomplish this, not even
an acquaintanceship or personal meeting! The mere existence of
woman on earth already brings about fulfilment!
Man stands in
Creation facing outward ready for battle while woman, in shielding his
back, maintains the connection with the Light, thus constituting the
core, the supply of power and the strengthening. Wherever decay is
permitted to creep into this core, however, the 'front' is also lost.
Bear this in mind at all times! Nor is it then of any avail for woman to
try and place herself at the front beside the man, where she does not
belong. Her delicate intuitive perception only hardens through such a
struggle, and thus the highest ability and power once bestowed upon her
as her own becomes exhausted, and everything must fall
It is known to
everybody, however, that even in the most remote regions of the earth
men immediately pull themselves together and try to behave in a more
respectful manner as soon as even one woman comes near them, with whom
they need not necessarily exchange a single word!
Such is the effect of
the mere presence and appearance of a woman! Even in its curtailed
expression this quite clearly reveals the mystery of woman, the power
and the sustaining force that emanate from her in accordance with the
Laws in Creation, which are not directly related to procreation on
earth. Procreation is for the most part animistic in character!
You girls and you
women, you must first of all remember that you are the bearers in
this Creation of the highest tasks, with which God has endowed you!
Neither marriage nor motherhood are your highest goal, sacred as
they are! You stand alone and firmly for yourselves as soon as you stand
"Woman can never
fulfil her vocation on earth while she has any vanity, which always
involves shamelessness, but only through that grace with which
she alone is endowed as the most beautiful spiritual
gift. Every look, every movement, every word of a woman must bear the
stamp of her nobility of soul. Therein lie her task, as well as her
power and her greatness!" (Abd-ru-shin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE

"... the intellect,
in the course of its over-cultivated development, felt urged to degrade
this coarse instinct even further until it became a sin, although it
could have remained pure, as with animals!
To reduce earthmen to
the level of an animal was much too petty a goal for the mocking
Darkness. It would have the human race on earth brought much lower
even than that, below any animal!
Human beings, who in
their gradual developments under the careful guidance of so many chosen
ones (destined and prepared for their task by the Light) had laboriously
gained control over the at first still existing yet pure animal
instincts in their bodies, were not only to sink back to that level,
despite their already awakened spirits, but were to be forced to stand
even lower than before.
men themselves under the stimulation of the Darkness, the intellect
became its willing servant. Endlessly questioning and speculating, it no
longer provides a firm foothold for the not yet strong enough spirit.
Therefore it automatically followed that men, having become dependent on their intellect, gradually turned a pure physical
instinct into one of most base and subtly calculating lust, thus
poisoning even the animal's naturalness within themselves!
Thus everything was
fundamentally tainted, and man on earth was effortlessly thrust down
lower than every other creature in the whole of Creation..." (Abd-ru-shin)
