Negative effect of glamour
Other Names: Dependence on glamourization
Nature: Glamour is the emotional aspect of duality which deludes, deceives, and creates false values and wrong desires. It entails wishing for apparent necessities with concomitant worries, anxieties, and cares. The emotions are deluded into cravings which, on a worldwide scale, can be thought of as 'the sum total of human ignorance, fear, and greed'. It is the result of the negative emotional focus of humanity and can be dissipated by the clear, inclusive thinking of those in whom the soul principle is awakening. It is 'illumined thinking' which helps to dissipate glamour.
Claim: Glamour refers to the world of emotional being and of desire, in which all forms dwell. It is this glamour which colours all our lives and produces false values, wrong desires, needless so-called necessities, our worries, anxieties and cares; but glamour is age-old, and has us in so close a grip that there seems little we can do. The wish life of people has been wrongly oriented and human desire has been turned outward to the material plane, thus producing the world of glamour in which we all habitually struggle. It is by far the most potent of our delusions or mistaken orientations.
