Master Djwal Khul's Statement's on Glamour

Glamour

http://www.esoteric-philosophy.net/glamour.html
Summary: A collection of statements by the Tibetan.


"Glamour has oft been regarded as a curious attempt of what are called the 'black forces' to deceive and hoodwink well-meaning aspirants. Many fine people are almost flattered when they are 'up against' some aspect of glamour, feeling that their demonstration of discipline has been so good that the black forces are interested sufficiently, to attempt to hinder their fine work, by submerging them in clouds of glamour. Nothing could be further from the truth. That idea is itself part of the glamour of the present time, and has its roots in human pride and satisfaction. . . . It is illusion on the astral plane." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 20/1)

"In the process of dissipating glamour, the way of the greatest potency, is to realise the necessity to act purely as a channel for the energy of the soul.. If the disciple can make right alignment and consequent contact with his soul, the results show as increased light. This light pours down and irradiates not only the mind, but the brain consciousness as well. He sees the situation more clearly: he realises the facts of the case against his 'vain imaginings'; and so the 'light shines upon his way'. He is not yet able to see truly in the larger sweeps of consciousness; the group glamour and, of course, the world glamour remain to him as yet a binding and bewildering mystery, but his own immediate way begins to clear, and he stands relatively free from the fog of his ancient and distorting emotional miasmas. Alignment, contact with his soul, and then steadfastness, are keynotes to success." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 36/7).

"Upon the Probationary Path there comes the swing, consciously registered, between the pairs of opposites, until the middle way is sighted and emerges. This activity produces the glamour of the pairs of opposites, which is of a dense and foggy nature, sometimes coloured with joy and bliss, and sometimes coloured with gloom and depression, as the disciple swings back and forth between dualities. This condition persists just as long as the emphasis is laid upon feeling -- which feeling will run the gamut between a potent joyfulness, as the man seeks to identify himself with the object of his devotion or aspiration, or fails to do so, and therefore succumbs to the blackest despair and sense of failure. All this is, however, astral in nature, and sensuous in quality, and is not of the soul at all. Aspirants remain for many years, and sometimes for many lives, imprisoned by this glamour. Release from the world of feeling, and the polarising of the disciple in the world of the illumined mind, will dissipate this glamour, which is part of the great heresy of separateness." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 79).

"The battlefield (for the man who is nearing accepted discipleship, or who is upon the path of discipleship, in the academic sense) is primarily that of glamour. That is the major problem, and its solution is imminent and urgent for all disciples and senior aspirants. It will be apparent, therefore, to you why emphasis has been put, during the Aryan age, upon the study of Raja Yoga, and the cultivation of submission to its discipline. Only though Raja Yoga can a man stand steady in the light, and only through illumination and the achievement of clear vision, can the fogs and miasmas of glamour be finally dissipated. . . . Therefore, I would counsel you to pay more attention to your meditation, cultivating ever the ability to reflect and to assume the attitude of reflection -- held steady throughout the day." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 80/1).

"A deep distrust of one's reactions to life circumstances, when such reactions awaken and call forth criticism, separativeness or pride, is of value. The qualities enumerated above are definitely breeders of glamour. They are occultly 'the glamorous characteristics'. Ponder on this. If a man can free himself from these characteristics, he is well on the way to the relinquinshing and the dissipation of all glamour. I am choosing my word with care in and effort to arrest your attention." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 82).

"Self-pity is one of the major glamours of the advanced and sensitive man." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 111).

"Glamour . . . veils and hides the truth behind the fogs and mists of feeling and emotional reaction; it is of unique and terrible potency, owing to the strength pf human nature to identify itself with the astral nature, and to the vital nature of conscious and sentient response itself. . . . . Glamour can only be dissipated by the inflow of clear, directed light; this is true of the life of the individual, or of humanity as a whole." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 241).

"Glamour is astral in character, and is far more potent at this time than illusion, owing to the enormous majority of people who function astrally always. . . . The vastness of the subject is overwhelming, and it takes time for the aspirant to learn the rules whereby he can find his way out of the worlds of glamour." (Glamour: A World Problem, p. 26)

"Every death, in all the kingdoms of nature, has to some extent this effect; it shatters and destroys substantial form, and thus serves a constructive purpose; this result is largely astral or psychic, and serves to dissipate some of the enveloping glamour. The wholesale destruction of forms which has been going on during the past few years of war has produced phenomenal changes upon the astral plane and has shattered an immense amount of the existing world glamour, and this is very, very good. These happenings should result in less opposition to the inflow of the new type of energy; it would facilitate the appearance of the ideas embodying the needed recognitions; the new concepts will now be seen, and their emergence into the realm of human thinking will be dependent upon the formulation of the new 'lanes of channels of impression' whereby the minds of men can become sensitive to hierarchical plans, and to the purposes of Shamballa." (Esoteric Healing, p. 503)

"Here are the names of some glamours:

1. The glamour of destiny. This is a glamour which indicates to the one whom it controls, that he has important work to do, and that he must speak and work as destined. This feeds a pride which has no foundation in fact.

2. The glamour of aspiration. Those thus conditioned are completely satisfied and pre-occupied with their aspiration towards the light and rest back upon the fact that they are aspirants. Such people need to move onward on to the Path of Discipleship and cease their preoccupation and satisfaction with their spiritual ambitions and goals.

3. The glamour of self-assurance or of what might be called the astral principles of the disciple. This is the belief, in plain language, that the disciple regards that his point of view is entirely right. This again feeds pride and tends to make the disciple believe himself to be an authority and infallible. It is the background of the theologian.

4. The glamour of duty. This leads to an over-emphasis of the sense of responsibility, producing lost motion and the emphasis of the non-essential.

5. The glamour of environing conditions, leading frequently to a sense of frustration, or futility or of impotence.

6. The glamour of the mind and of its efficiency, and its capacity to deal with any or every problem. This leads inevitably to isolation and loneliness.

7. The glamour of devotion, leading to an undue stimulation of the astral body. The man or woman thus glamoured sees only on idea, one person, one authority and one aspect of the truth. It feeds fanaticism and spiritual pride.

8. The glamour of desire with its reflex action upon the physical body. This leads to a constant condition of fighting and of turmoil. It negates all peace and fruitful work and must some day be brought to an end.

9. The glamour of personal ambition.

There are many other glamours, both individual and worldwide, but these will serve to indicate a general tendency." (Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. I, p. 26/7)

Me insecure, I mean you have to be kidding me lol One of my faults, is I'm too brave, sometimes I say and do things which I probably shouldn't because of that. Just totally off the mark with that one, Drekx.

 

And you know, normally, I would probably just keep going with this, but I will choose to disengage, because, you already know what my points were, you are already aware now of what you need to work on, you can choose to work on it or not. My work is done here. Any further talk is just adding to a fight, which I don't want to have. So, I will disengage from this. I am learning a bit of wisdom from that, learning when to pull back.

Comment by Drekx Omega on October 31, 2011 at 11:47pm

I will be direct with crude people and more gentle with sensitive people...you tell me I "keep failing" but these are only your perceptions of judgement.....I know that people like you and SC, and Anja too, just can't stop trying to get me to surrender to your perceptions of what I should be or do...I in contrast, am self contained....I don't need to prove anything to you, as you seem to want to prove to me...that is because you are insecure in yourself...like Anja, like SC....all you fearful and insecure types love to come to me to learn self confidence...which you lack...

 

I think you are actually very insecure and fear having your "down to earth" illusions shattered....You don't like what I represent...and you also fear I may talk down to you...which I will do, if you try to control me or Kelly S...

My talking down is not done with anger, in your case it's done with detachment...as I do not fear the outcome as to whether you will get it or not....whatever....!!

Sorry Gregory, but they need to learn. Somebody needs to point it out to them. And I honestly don't even like to play this role all that much, but someone has to do it. They treat people who disagree with them like dirt, and that is an imperfection they need to rectify. They need to come off their high horses. They need to be reading this glamor blog that they post for everyone else. That's just how it is.
Comment by John Jancar on October 31, 2011 at 11:36pm

No Drekx no, and you keep failing the lesson, of learning how to respond to people properly. That's why the problems keep coming to you, okay. I don't like how you treat people here sometimes, like you are somehow above them. You're not above anybody, okay. I think you let your status go to your head, which is precisely why I said you should be reading this glamor blog that Kelly posted. And it's the truth.

 

I mean do you honestly think that's the way to respond to someone....oh I don't care about you, you mean nothing to me....I mean honestly. You need to learn better. And if you were wiser, you would see that. But you're too egotistical, and I'm sorry to say that. I really am....I would never talk that way to someone, and I'm not some great enlightened person. But to think that I am more spiritually evolved than an ET representative, is sad. Do you think this is how they want you to talk to others?

Comment by Drekx Omega on October 31, 2011 at 11:19pm

Let's face it Jancar, you have a kingsize chip on your shoulder when you see me...You resent me and keep trying your best to pull me down to your level....not working, as like my Soulmate, Kelly I don't care about you one way or the other....You're just another blogger to me.....hardly someone of important stature, aka Mr.Ed or LadyT....

So just leave us alone Jancar, go and buzz someone else...

Comment by John Jancar on October 31, 2011 at 11:09pm
But it's the truth, Kelly. And look I don't want to fight with you. I really don't. But you act like you're perfect, and somebody needs to play this role of pointing out your imperfections so you can be aware of it, and the universe is using me to do it. You can feel hurt by it, you can feel offended, I'm sorry for that, but so be it. Sometimes the truth hurts, sometimes the truth p***** you off....especially when it involves looking at a part of you that needs fixing. But it's there, and the longer you keep ignoring or denying it, the longer it's going to take to solve that issue and grow some more. Okay Kelly. Again, I don't want to fight you, I actually like you, believe it or not lol And from a higher perspective, I'm actually helping you grow right now.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

There we go criticising again, I am not allowing my blog to be used to hurt another, especially my soul mate.  Get over yourself, I don't care what you say because you haven't got the comprehension of what the blog is saying... went straight over your head, didn't it? 

You have a choice every moment of every day which wolf you will feed... if you choose to be negative, hurtful and insult others... it is not my business- however if you do that on my blogs, and I can stop it from continuing, darn straight I will delete.

Nope, not going to work here John you are perfectly capable of posting your own blog to share your feelings which in this case were to mock and hurt another person.  Not going to happen on my blogs, police yourself and not others, it's not your place to tell me what to do or think, you can do your own bashing blog without using mine.

You mistake me, I do not resent you , I leave you alone, don't I?  Except for your continued harrassment of me I don't care one way or another.  I love you as a divine soul, it doesn't mean I have to deal with insults. 

Comment by John Jancar on October 31, 2011 at 5:17pm

Freedom of speech, remember that? lol I can say whatever I want, and you have no right to delete my comments, and try to control things. Also, it was the truth what I said. Drekx does need to read that, perhaps more than anyone. And you too lol I feel this writing has come into your life, because you needed to read it.

 

Me, I've gotten it under control already, and I don't just deny that side of me, I know I'm important, and I feel everyone is important, everyone deserves recognition and respect and honor. Everyone is great and special! I don't buy into this at all, that you just have to deny it, and accept being unimportant. I believe more in what Dr. King says, it's a good instinct if you use it right!

 

By the way, I don't not like you, Kelly. In fact, I'm very fond of you, and I don't like how there is this bad blood between us. It all started after the abortion thing, and continued with my challenging of Drekx. I say, let go of your resentment, and let's be friends again. That's what I want, and I'm willing to set the past aside, and start fresh, whenever you decide to do the same.
