Maya, Glamour and Illusion
What is the difference between glamour and illusion? What is the difference in the way that illusion and glamour keep us from the truth?
A tip or two picked up here and rightly incorporated may save as many as a half dozen lives on the way to liberation. Even saving ﬁve years of wasted time should warrant some attention. Then every once in a while a person takes the dark path and throws away approximately 1000 lifetimes and the pralaya between creations. When the Dark Brother chooses his path he does so in full awareness making a deﬁnite decision, so if you or anyone you know still has even the slightest desire to help your brother or sister then you have not committed the unpardonable sin.
We know that Hitler was greatly deceived. Was he fooled by all three deceptions, two of them or just one? Pick the deception that you think caused him the greatest problem and tell us why this is so.
As we enter into areas of new understanding we enter into the possibility of inner joy through learning which can actually veriﬁed by the soul, On the other hand, we also approach a ﬁeld where there can be inner resistance and some new terms which may seem complicated at ﬁrst, but later will make all things clearer.
When I started teaching here I considered the most important thing I could share with the group. The answer was easy. That is anything I could do to enhance and clarify the soul contact of others would be a valuable service. Actually presenting a teaching that may stimulate that contact is the difﬁcult part.
The three deceptions are not that complicated. It is important, however, that you understand them well enough so you can explain them in your own words without quoting some other teaching.
The ﬁrst is Maya and you must pass through this deception before you can go on to the second which is glamour. Then you must pass through glamour before you can unravel deception.
Maya is distortion caused by the pull of matter, which matter has a magnetic pull on us in a direction away from the Christ consciousness. All the carnal sins mentioned in the scriptures are associated with this ﬁrst deception and the commandments given to us (the Ten Commandments, for instance) through prophets are for the purpose of giving us the discipline over Maya so we can center our consciousness on the next step.
The most important function of the churches of the world is to teach infant seekers the discipline to control their physical impulses so they are directed toward an intelligent end.
Now the churches a are not very intelligent teachers because their ministers only have a vague idea of the true course they are supposed to be presenting, but the wise student will also learn directly from the scriptures where the church directs their attention. Thus the good students learn their lessons and eventually graduate despite the clumsy teachers
Those who overcome Maya have basically learned to direct their physical impulses and appetites toward a constructive and harmless end. Among other things they learn the correct use of sexual energy, diet, taking good care of the body and the management of some stress.
The second obstacle: Glamour. Glamour could be deﬁned as an emotional energy used by the ego to inﬂate a feeling of self-importance we have about a thought process or activity we are engaged in.
Let us say, for instance, that we as members of this group started feeling an inflated importance merely because we are fortunate enough to be here. Maybe we discuss philosophy with outsiders or new members and we automatically feel superior because of our special knowledge. This is a glamour and I am happy to say that if the group is displaying any glamour as of late it is the “glamour of being on the lowest rung of the ladder.”
Your postings remind me of a parable of Jesus:
And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them, When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him; And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Luke 14:7-11
It sounds like most of you deserve to be exalted for your humility.
Keep vigilant though there is the glamour of false humility, but I do not detect that among you.
The third deception is illusion and is the most difﬁcult to grasp because only more advanced humanity are even able to reach this deception and have power to analyze it and destroy it. Much that has been pinpointed by the group as an illusion is really a glamour. An illusion is an incorrect idea or premise at the foundation of a belief system and can trap some very intelligent people.
An illusion held by fundamentalists Christians is that God made the earth in six days and the age of the earth is around 6000 years. If you go to their web pages you will see some extremely intelligent reasoning beginning with and using this premise. They even have an interesting explanation as to how light from galaxies 13 billion light years away got here in less than six thousand years. This illusion they are in colors every piece of science that is presented to them so they cannot see the truth of many things in certain areas.
Take them away from their illusion and place them in a situation non-religious or non scientiﬁc like business and they do just as well as the next guy. This is because their illusion does not usually carry over to business and here they allow themselves to use common sense.
The average Creationist is attracted to their illusion because of glamour which sustains the mark of the Beast. To unravel this illusion they must dispel the fog of glamour and eventually see the illusion which is the foundation of their problem.
To believe only in the Brotherhood of Light and not the Dark Brothers is to believe you can clap with one hand.
Just as the appearance of Christ, Buddha and other teachers is evidence of a Brotherhood of Light so too is the appearance of Hitler, Stalin and Nero evidence of the Dark ones.
Dark Brothers have deﬁnitely appeared in history and when they have died they did not go into extinction. They went unto their own place with their own kind and continue to work on the side of selﬁshness.
It is dangerous to think we can stay positive by avoiding discussions about negative energies and people. He who denies the existence of a truth on the negative side creates a vacuum that draws the darkness unto him. Darkness is always dispelled by shining light upon it. When we discuss the Dark Brothers in the light of day and shine the light of truth upon them we destroy their power.
If one overcomes Maya that does not mean he ceases to enjoy good food, sex and rock and roll. But it does mean that he is the master of this energy and the energy is not the master of him.
If there were some purpose to abstain from sex for three years, fast for a week or change diet for then one who has overcome Maya could do this. If there is no reason to abstain then he would be privileged to enjoy the pleasures of the ﬂesh as much as the next guy as long as the principle of harmlessness is followed.
A person may have basically overcome Maya on one life and then slip back into its trap in another. Cigarettes are an example of one of the most powerful forces of Maya. If you can quit smoking after having the habit for years the rest of Maya should be downhill for you.
The solving of illusion holds the key to placing Maya and glamour in their right place and not the other way around.
It is true that Hitler manipulated the forces of Maya and glamour to further his purposes, but that does not mean he was deceived by them.
Hitler was a strict vegetarian, did not smoke, and believed in sexual purity, solid family relationships. He was a master of Maya as well as mayhem.
It is true he had a great temper and strong solar plexus activity, but so too do the advanced brothers of light have powerful forces to deal with in all the lower centers. Thus this is not a sign that Hitler had glamours.
His followers had tremendous glamour and Hitler consciously manipulated glamour among his people, but many of the glamours that affect the regular guy had little pull on him.
That leaves one deception left illusion. What illusion caused Hitler to ﬁght against the Jews? What illusion caused him to start the War?
I will say this. Hitler’s self-deception was founded in the various philosophies which he adopted. Some were from the Bible, some were directly revealed from the Dark Brothers, some from esoteric writings, some from Nietzche and some from his own reﬂection.
Hitler did not hate the Jews on a personal level so much as he intellectually concluded that the Jewish race as a whole was evil and the earth would be much better off without them. To him it was like killing a cancer to save the body.
Some of the Aryan Nations groups have a philosophy toward the Jews very similar to Hitler’s and even think of him as a hero right up there with Jesus.
They believe that the deadly wound of the Beast that was healed when Hitler made war on the Jews and lost.
All this is great illusion, but illusion is logical to those caught in it and the only way to expose it is to understand it.
Again I ask -what Philosophy could Hitler possibly have had that would have made him think the Jews were the Satan of the World?
Hint: Revelations 3:9
Some may question the use of Hitler as an example of illusion but Hitler is a great example of a dangerous illusion. A good illusion is more dangerous than glamour for the masses never understand it.
A reader asked, “What good does it do us on this list to expose the illusion Hitler was under? In what way are we going to be better for understanding Hitler’s illusion?”
Answer: To my knowledge the principle of illusion has never been explained so average seekers can understand it, yet it is the ﬁnal block to full soul contact. If I can lead just one person to greater contact then that produces a tremendous beneﬁt because each person who reaches this level inﬂuences many people for good.
“Are there other examples not quite as outrageous as Hitler that we might be able to understand just as well?”
Answer: The advantage of using Hitler is that all in the group are somewhat familiar with him and we all agree he was a bad guy who was deceived. If I were to use either Bill Clinton or Newt Gingrich as an example of illusion then I would get half the list irritated at me and many would close their minds. The problem is that any illusion we unravel will strike a nerve in about half the people so it is best to use an example that we all at least agree to be against.
To ﬁnd an example of illusion that creates great harm to illustrate its dangers and identify its reality you have to pick on a person of fairly high evolution who furthered the cause of the left hand path and there are not many who are well known that we can choose from. Someone like Jimmy Swaggart, for example, was deceived mostly by glamour and would not be a good example. Many who you may think to be examples of illusion are merely examples of Maya and glamour.
“Where is all this leading us to?”
This is leading to an understanding what glamour and illusion are and the difference between the two so the seekers can begin to unravel the deception in their own lives and open the door to greater inﬂow of soul energy and receive greater understanding. This is crucial to our totally eliminating the mark of the Beast in our lives.
I was asked about soulless people.
I believe that what some of you are calling soulless people are in two categories:
(1) Those who have rejected the soul and thus receive little or no spiritual energy in their lives. These people are usually of the very selﬁsh type.
(2) Those who have taken too many drugs, have a great illness or accident and thus the soul energy withdraws a large portion of consciousness. The person’s soul still exists, but the higher self has withdrawn to its own plane.
