Glamor - A World Problem - The Ending of Glamor
Our consideration of glamor is nearing its close. We have carried a consecutive theme steadily and have traced the threefold aspect of the world illusion as it appears upon the mental plane, and there conditions the intelligentsia of the world; as it appears upon the astral plane where it constitutes the glamor to which the masses of men succumb; we shall now consider the world of maya in which we, physically, live and move and have our being.

I wonder if those who read my words appreciate the importance of this entire subject or if they are aware of the wide field of service which it opens up, making practical - as it does - all human living, and indicating likewise the steps whereby Reality can be known and all veiling forms disappear. Behind these words of illusion, glamor and maya, lies TRUTH. This truth is the clear consciousness of Being, of Existence and of essential, initial Reality. That is the reason that Christ stood mute before Pilate who symbolized the human intellect; He knew that no reply could convey meaning to that veiled, inhibited mind.

Illusion is the mode whereby limited understanding and material knowledge interpret truth, veiling and hiding it behind a cloud of thought-forms. Those thought-forms become then more real than the truth they veil, and consequently control man's approach to Reality. Through illusion, he becomes aware of the apparatus of thought, of its activity, expressed in thought-form building, and of that which he succeeds in constructing and which he views as the creation of his intellect. He has, however, created a barrier between himself and that which is and, until he has [241] exhausted the resources of his intellect or has deliberately refused to utilize it, his divine intuition cannot function. It is the intuition which reveals true Being and which induces a state of spiritual perception. Then the technique of the PRESENCE becomes an established habit.

Glamor, in its turn, 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 of human nature to identify itself with the astral nature and to the vital nature of conscious and sentient response itself. As you know and have been taught, glamor 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. Illumination reveals first of all the existence of glamor; it provides the distressing contrasts with which all true aspirants wrestle and then gradually it floods the life to such an extent that eventually glamor completely vanishes. Men see things then as they are - a fašade hiding the good, the beautiful and true. The opposites are then resolved and consciousness is superseded by a condition of realization - a realization of Being for which we have no adequate term. The technique of LIGHT becomes a permanent condition.
