In this Ebook I will explain Karen Blixen´s mysterious relationship with Lucifer. I will show that it has to do with the mystical experience.
In many ways Blixen´s work and life is a rebellion against the mediocre Christianity, which tried to clip her wings as a child. In her works this comes to expression in her “counter-stories”, for example when she reverses Kierkegaard´s three stages on the way to becoming a true self: the aesthetic, the ethical, and the religious.
The mystical experience is about returning to nature, which she decribes as a fall, a Luciferian movement from the religious and ethical, to the aesthetic. She claimed that the true human nature is that of an artist.
The concept of a return to nature is also the background for her depiction of herself as a witch, a concept which came to expression in her magical circle of male students, to whom she tried to transform creative energies and images. A relationship which they described as demonical, a kind of seducement into her personal Earth-Moon Kingdom.
In the book I will also describe my own mystical connection with Karen Blixen, and emphasize that her Luciferian relationship hasn´t anything to do with satanism, but with the surrender that is necessary in order to receive the mystical experience.
