I enjoyed your post and it makes a lot of sense to me.
Lucifer is a french word in 2 parts Luc = light and fer = iron
There is a lot of confusion and non sense
to mix up everything together as I have seen done
with Lucifer "the bringer of light" with Satan "the prince of darkness"
Both IMHO are inside us not outside. But of course it is more easy
for people to find a scapegoat for the problems in the world that
to look at themselves in the mirror. Each and everyone of our thought
has a vibration and a effect on the whole. Meaning each time you
have a thought of anger or fear or negative you contribute to the problem
in the world. On the contrary if your thoughts tend toward self-acceptance, tolerance, love, faith, trust then you are part of the solution.
So we are all alternatively our own Lightbearer or Prince of Darkness.
Like Mrs Fix It on TV says it is that simple (too simple to sale it and make big money out of it, that the point -:) that being said "positive and negatives people or forces can be found everywhere and freemasonry is no exception and as human beings are constantly evolving a judgement passed today could be totally obsolete tomorrow. That is why I spare my energy for more rewarding endeavours.
