Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 184, reading no. 121.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 198 – 199.  DK talks about an ancient prayer and it’s importance in dissipating the 3 aspects of glamor (suspicion, self-pity, and criticism).  The prayer is “Lead us, O Lord, from darkness to light; from the unreal to the real; from death to immortality.”  The first sentence refers to the mind as it becomes illumined by the light of the intuition (it is brought about by the means of the Technique of the Presence which eventually produces the Transfiguration of the personality into a center of radiant light upon the mental plane. The second sentence relates to the astral plane and its all-encompassing glamours, which embody the unreal and present them to the prisoners of the astral plane, leading them to mistake them for the Reality. This imprisonment by glamour can be ended by the activity of the Technique of Light, used in group formation for the dissipation of glamour and for the emergence in the consciousness of men of a clear conception and recognition of the nature of Reality. This dissipation can be carried forward by disciples in all parts of the planet, aided by the world aspirants; it will, however, be primarily the work of those whose ray focus makes astral living the line of least resistance (primarily those with a ray 6 personality or astral vehicle), aided by aspirants and disciples upon the second and fourth rays.  The work is instituted by the group formation of the ray six types, and when they have adopted the Technique of Light in service of the race, their work will be completed by second ray disciples. DK specifies that the work of dissipating glamour is carried forward by those who come into manifestation along the lines of energy embodied by the second, fourth and sixth rays, and points out that frequently disciples will undertake tasks for which they are not particularly fitted and whose rays do not aid them in accomplishment, which can then prevent that accomplishment. The meditation itself was on the ancient glamor of hatred, based on the great heresy on separateness.  This meeting was held on September 10, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 183, reading no. 120.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 197 – 198. DK continues his discussion on the light of the soul as it dissipates glamour in the three worlds and how it concerns the astral plane, and a service to be rendered that is vital and timely (ridding the world of the individual and the world glamor which holds humanity in thrall).  The new era which will open up before mankind war will be distinguished by its mental polarization and freedom from glamour; then illusion will for a time control until the intuition is more fully developed. The second characteristic of the new era will be the scientific approach to the entire problem of glamour which will then be scientifically dissipated by the use of the illumined minds of groups, working in unison for just that purpose.  Groups will eventually be formed of those who are working at the dissipation of glamor in their individual lives and who also capable of the special objective of ridding the astral plane of its significant glamors for humanity. They will work unitedly on some major phase of world glamour by the power of their individual illumined minds; unitedly they will turn the searchlight of the mind, upon the mists and fogs of Earth. The meditation itself was on the glamor of hatred.  This meeting was held on August 27, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 182, reading no. 119.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 195 – 197.  On a higher turn of the spiral, the intuition is the expression of the threefold Spiritual Triad. Of this higher experience, the active life of the three worlds is a distorted expression but constitutes also the training ground in which capacity to live the initiate life of intuitional perception and to serve the Plan is slowly developed. The rules for the Technique of Light have been adequately laid down in the Raja Yoga system of Patanjali, of which the five stages of Concentration (Leo), Meditation (Virgo), Contemplation (Libra), Illumination (Scorpio), and Inspiration (Sagittarius) are illustrative (Esoteric Astrology, pages 228-229).  These, in their turn, must be paralleled by a following of the Five Rules (Nijama) and the Five Commandments (Yama). I would ask you to study these (see Light of the Soul, Book II, pages 184-190). These rules and commandments produce the psychic sensitivity of which hierarchical contact, illumination, service and discipline are descriptive. What concerns us is how this light is recognized, appropriated and used in order to dispel glamour. The esotericist knows that in every atom of his body is to be found a point of light; he knows the nature of the soul is light. For eons, he walks by the light within his vehicles (the light within the atomic substance of his body), guided by the light of matter. Later he discovers the light of the soul and still later learns to fuse and blend soul light and material light, so he can shine forth as a Light bearer with the purified light of matter and the light of the soul blended and focused.  The meditation itself was on the glamor of suspicion.  This meeting was held on August 13, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 181, reading no. 118.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 194 – 195.  Michael reviewed the three techniques DK has been talking about, each related to each other, and each releasing the disciple into newer states of awareness.  The Technique of the Presence, the highest of the techniques, enables the intuition to flow in and to supersede the activity of the rationalizing mind, dispelling illusion.  The Technique of Light, the one we mostly focus on in these meetings, is more closely related to the mind and the method where the illumination flows from the soul (whose nature is light) to irradiate life, circumstances and events (revealing the cause and the meaning of the experience). And the Technique of Indifference neutralizes the hold of sub-stance over the life or spirit, functioning in the 3 worlds, for soul is the evidence of life. And then Michael began his discussion about how students and aspirants who have made progress in soul contact have taken one of the first important steps towards the comprehension of light and its uses. However, they must be careful not to confuse the light which they can bring to bear on life, circumstance, events with that of  intuition. The light that expresses itself in the three worlds and reveals form concerns the soul light, the illuminating the mind and it brings about revelation of the world of forms in which that life is immersed. The intuition is not concerned with anything in the three worlds of human experience.  Rather, it is only concerned with the perceptions of the Spiritual Triad and with the world of ideas. The intuition is to the world of meaning what the mind is to the three worlds of experience. Intuition produces understanding, just as the light of soul produces knowledge through the medium of experience. The five senses bring physical plane knowledge; psychic sensitivity brings a knowledge of the astral plane; the mind brings intellectual perception, but all three are aspects of the light of knowledge (coming from the soul) as it informs its vehicles of expression in lower three environments where the soul chooses to imprison itself for purposes of development.  The meditation itself was on the glamor of suspicion.  This meeting was held on July 30, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 180, reading no. 117.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 192  – 194.   Michael continued his discussion of the techniques of indifference, light, and presence, and how there is really no line of demarcation between them, only a constant overlapping of the techniques.  Just as the result of the innate reaction to environment produces an apparatus needed to contact that environment, so the unfoldment of the powers which these techniques serve produces modes of contact with soul and spiritual environments. Each of these techniques is related to a new environment; each of them eventually develops power in the initiate or disciple which can be used in the service of humanity and in higher spheres of divine activity; each is related to the other techniques and releases the disciple into a conscious relationship with a new environment, new states of awareness and new fields of service. The Technique of the Presence enables the intuition to flow in and supersede the activity of the rational mind, dispelling illusion.  The Technique of Light is the method of illumination from the soul (whose nature is light) and can irradiate not only ideals but life, circumstances and events, revealing the cause and the meaning of the experience. When the power of the disciple to illumine is grasped, he has taken the first step towards dispelling glamour; and so this technique becomes effective on the astral plane and eventually brings about the dissipation and the disappearance of that plane.  The Technique of Indifference neutralizes the hold of sub-stance over the life or spirit functioning in the 3 worlds.  The meditation itself was on the glamor of manipulation of emotion and thought.  This meeting was held on July 9, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 179, reading no. 116.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 190  – 192 the beginning of the section titled Technique of Light. This section expands on the medium of Light and the ajna center as the projecting agent. The Keynote being: In that Light shall we see LIGHT.” The stratum of light reveals a still greater Light in which we live. This progression of greater lights is necessary in order to become efficient cooperators with the Plan. The advancement from one light to the next higher Light takes the individual from the World of Phenomena to the World of Meaning, then the World of Significance, to the World of Being and into the World of Causes. This progression – these stages of advancement can be misunderstood as linear and separate when in fact there are no lines of demarcation and this cyclical development is merging and blending and fusing  on a trajectory from the darkness of the 18 lower planes, to the soul plane, then into the Spiritual Triad, on to the Monadic realm and finally into the Logoic realm of Causes. The three stages outlined by the Tibetan delineate the three lights that are blended in the Technique of Light given later in the formulas for the Dissipation of Glamour: 1) Light of Knowledge 2) Light of  Wisdom and 3) Light of Intuition. These put out the lesser lights. We are endeavoring to find the lighted center within ourselves and through a lengthy process make ourselves “sufficient” to enter into the higher realms and serve the Plan. In looking at the horoscope the Sun Sign represents the light of the personality. The rising sign represents the light of the Soul and the point opposite the Sun Sign represents the light of the Monad. The meditation itself was on the glamor of emotional obsession. This meeting was held on June 18, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 178, reading no. 115.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 188  – 190 continuing the discussion on how the revelations of science are as divine as those of religion, but both have been prostituted to meet human needs.  They are group endeavors, although they may be focused through one man or woman.  These come in 2 ways:  a person may be so close to the Hierarchy that he is imbued with conscious divinity and can receive the message direct from the central divine Source.  Or revelation can come via groups like scientific investigators searching for light on certain world problems.  The route which the revelation then follows is the same in both cases, and illusion overtakes both forms of revelation.  However, surprisingly there is a little less illusion gathered around the revelations of science than has gathered around the revelations of spiritual truths. One reason lies in the fact that the last great spiritual revelation, given by the Christ, was given two thousand years ago, and the development of man’s mind and his responsiveness to truth has grown greatly since then.  Today, as humanity awaits the revelation which will embody the thoughts and dreams and constructive goal of the New Age, the demand comes for the first time from a large group of intuitively inclined people.  This group is now so large and its focus is now so real and its demand so loud that it is succeeding in focusing the massed intent of the people. Therefore, whatever revelation may emerge in the immediate future will be better “protected by the spirit of understanding” than any previous one.  The disciple and initiate work from above downwards; from a vantage point of exterior direction—energy and forces are directed from the higher planes into the world of phenomena and produce definite effects upon the substance of the lower planes. It is for this reason that the Technique of the Presence must always be used prior to all other techniques.  The meditation itself was on the glamor of emotional obsession.  This meeting was held on June 4, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 177, reading no. 114.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 186  – 188 continuing the discussion on how group intuition dispels world illusion with an emphasis on raw love of power that seeks to preserve materialistic prerogatives of the few at the expense of the welfare of others. Master DK tells us that so great has been the illusion that men talk of the power of churches, those known for amassing money and teaching their adherents to do the same, of corrupt churches and mismanaged churches.  There are simple parishioners who have no ability for theological discussions, but they do believe that God is love—just simply that—that there is a way which leads to peace and light, and that if they deny their own material desires they are pleasing God. There are wise and good men within the theological systems who spend their time in loving their fellowmen, and this they do because they love Christ and all for which He stands; they are not interested in building great churches and in gathering together the money needed for their support.  Their focus is in gathering those who form the true Church upon the inner spiritual plane and in helping them to walk in the light; the illusion of power or superiority does not taint them. After the world crisis is over, Churchmen everywhere will not rest until they can discover how to penetrate through the illusion of doctrine and dogma which engulfs them, and find their way back to Christ and His simple message which has in it the power to save the world, if recognized and practiced.  Much of the true revelation since the time of Christ has come to the world along the line of science. The presentation, for instance, of material substance (scientifically proven) as essentially only a form of energy was as great a revelation as any given by the Christ or the Buddha. It completely revolutionized men’s thinking and related energy to force, form to life, and man to God and held the secret of transformation, transmutation and transfiguration. The revelations of science when basic and fundamental are as divine as those of religion and go a long way in dispelling the Great Illusion.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the selfish love of power to the extent of stealing or negating the will or power of others.   This meeting was held on March 19, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 176, reading no. 113.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 184  – 186 emphasizing how group intuition dispels world illusion.  Today the world is full of illusion, many of them veiled under the form of idealism (full of wishful thinking and planning). The question is if this wishful thinking is enough of the essential dynamic livingness which will carry it down into physical demonstration and factual expression that truly meets human need? The two greatest revealing Agents (Buddha and the Christ) who have ever come to Earth within the range of modern history made the following simple revelations to humanity:  the cause of all human suffering is desire and personal selfishness (give up desire and you will be free); the way of liberation leads to illumination; it profits a man nothing to gain the whole world and lose his soul; every human being is a Son of God; and the way of liberation is the way of love and sacrifice.  The lives of these Revealers were symbolic representations of what they taught and an extension of their central themes (they lived what they taught). Their contribution was an integral part of the general revelation of the ages which led men from the primitive state of human existence to the complex state of modern civilization. This general revelation can be called the Revelation of the Path which leads out of form to the Center of all life. One of the major tasks of the Hierarchy is to find those who are sensitive to revelation and whose minds are trained so that they can formulate the emerging truths in such a way that they reach the ears of the world thinkers with true clarity.  Revelations from the past along religious impulse have changed so much over time, the illusion has deepened and grown so much that the Buddha and Christ would not recognize the fundamental and simple truths they revealed.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the blind, violent emotional reaction to conspiratorial, fantastical, kama-manasic thinking.   This meeting was held on March 12, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 175, reading no. 112.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 183  – 184.  We continue with the discussion on revelations, and in their descent how they become distorted, causing illusion and glamor, and the subsequent disappearance as a revelation and the emergence of it as a doctrine.  But in this process, humanity has still been helped and led forward, and the intuitives continue to work and that which is to be revealed never ceases.  The Technique of the Presence underlies both primary revelations (with a long cycle, emanating from Shamballa) and secondary revelations (with shorter time cycles, emanating from the Hierarchy).  An example of one of the smaller, secondary points of revelation was The Secret Doctrine.  Madame Blavatsky was the “penetrating, sensing, appropriating intuitive.”  The revelation she conveyed followed the accustomed routine of all secondary revelation, where in the minds of men it was veiled by illusion and clouded by glamor, then formed into a concrete, rigid doctrine leaving no room for further revelation.  But if they are correct in that rigid approach, then evolutionary revelation is ended and the plight of humanity is hard indeed.  The hope of the world and the dispelling of illusion lies in the development of intuitives and their conscious training that parallels their intuitive response and their effort to precipitate their intuition into the world of human thought, so there can be a steady development of the human mind.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the blind, violent emotional reaction to conspiratorial, fantastical, kama-manasic thinking.   This meeting was held on March 5, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 174, reading no. 111.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 182 – 183.  Beginning with a review of the previous steps of the evocation of tension, achieving fusion with the soul, holding the mind steady in the light of the soul (the 3 preliminary stages), then the stages of sustained effort to sense the Presence throughout the Universe in all forms, ascertaining and understanding the higher purpose of this evolutionary cycle, and working with some world problem to help humanity. Then Michael and Tuija began their discussion of the last 3 stages: preparation for the revelation, presentation of the revelation (the imparted truth and precipitation into the world of illusion where it undergoes a fiery ordeal), and the succumbing of the revelation to the prevailing illusion (its descent into the world of glamour, disappearance as a revelation and emergence as a doctrine).  But in the meantime, Humanity has been helped and led forward in this work as the intuitives continue to work and the inflow of that which is to be revealed never ceases.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the blind, violent emotional reaction to the manipulative, conspiratorial thinking.  This meeting was held on February 19, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 173, reading no. 110.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 181 – 182.  Beginning with a review of current events in the United States in relation to glamour and illusion, Michael noted again the strong glamor pervading Humanity at this time for ordinary humanity, the glamor of blind emotional reaction to manipulative, conspiratorial theory.  Michael reminded us that we are dealing with both Glamour and illusion and must look for a Light that is a greater light than the Light of the Soul. He referenced a previously recorded set of commentaries to be found on makara: Angel of the Presence on Makara http://www.makara.us/portal/?page_id=344 and offered some comments. The Light is like a radiant sun representing the Angel of the Presence. This Light, a triple light, dispels illusion and can only be known through long preparation and meditation. This agent of reception will unlock some door in science or religion or psychology. The light brings something from the higher realms that is the result of the triple light of the Intuition focused on a problem revealing a significant expansion from a seed of truth already given. Michael offered the example of the breaking up of materialism that resulted from Einstein’s tuning in and receiving some knowledge of time and space that descended as the ideas and theories of relativity – a great impersonal truth revealed to the race. These adventures into a new Light bring in ideas that move humanity along and are the result of intuitive attainment, purely impersonal and only applicable to humanity in a broad sense. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the blind, violent emotional reaction to the manipulative, conspiratorial thinking.  This meeting was held on February 12, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 172, reading no. 109.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 179 – 181.  There is a strong glamor pervading Humanity at this time for ordinary humanity, the glamor of blind emotional reaction to manipulative, conspiratorial theory.  There’s enough logic in the mind that can be twisted so they will be believed, leading to separative and dangerous action on the physical plane.  Three things we must learn to do: 1) evoke a stafe of tension between the personality and soul, 2) achieve a state of fusion with the soul, and 3) learn to hold the mind stead in the light of the soul with focused, immovable will.  This happens when the personal self has done its utmost to achieve the desired tension. The Eastern disciple seeks silent places and mysticism, but the Western disciple must move forward into spiritual discipline, occultism, and training of Raja Yoga and Agni Yoga.  This leads to higher levels of awareness. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the blind, emotional reaction to the manipulative, conspiratorial thinking.  This meeting was held on February 5, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 171, reading no. 108. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 177 – 179.  The discussion was on the crisis of the field of human apprehension, and how how thinkers can begin to register accurately what the intuitives convey to them.  The masses, however, are just beginning to use their lower mind and illusion is still a necessary stage for them so they can develop discrimination – they must be taught the significance of illusion and trained to see and choose the kernel of truth in any presentation.  The world intuitives must learn to use, control, and understand the faculty of spiritual perception. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on twisted suspicion leading to distorted conspiracy theories.  This meeting was held on January 22, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 170, reading no. 107. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 175 – 177.  We resumed our work on the Technique of the Presence. The lower use of the mind and its processes of unfoldment have produced illusion.  Illusion is frequently misinterpreted and misapplied mental perception of truth.  We misunderstand, accompanied by a distorting passion which takes us further from the truth. To avoid illusion the right idea has to be presented by Hierarchy at the right time and in the right place and be reasonably understood by Humanity.  The theme of the Technique of the Presence is concerned with (1)  the process of revelation (to gauge the unfoldment of human consciousness, to judge what is the next needed revelation, and to ascertain what obstructions and preconceived ideas that might hamper our understanding of the new revelation); (2), the fact of the Presence; (3) the reaction of the world intuitives to the revelation and the form they present it to the world; (4) the response of thinking world to the presented truth.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the self-rightous glamour of violence.  This meeting was held on January 15, 2021.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 169, reading no. 106. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 174 – 175. The group aligned, then sounded the second stanza of the Great Invocation. We continued in the section, “The Technique of the Presence”. The second primary factor through which human awareness has unfolded is called “imposed revelation” of that which is not immediately apparent. These revelations are revealed through the intuition. Training to contact the intuition begins with learning to use the abstract mind. Humanity has evolved through both gradual mental unfoldment and a wisely imparted series of revelations. Individuality leads to mental development, while initiation leads to apprehending spiritual values. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of lying and cynical manipulation for personal advantage. This meeting was held on December 11, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 168, reading no. 105. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 172 – 174. The group aligned, then sounded the second stanza of the Great Invocation. We began a new section, “The Technique of the Presence”. In studying this, we must keep in mind the existence of Intuition, the fact of Illusion, and the overshadowing Presence. The reference to the “Angel” may refer to as much of the Solar Angel as can be “found” on the mental plane. Illusion relates to the whole process of revelation, while glamour is related to the distortion of that which has been revealed. Human awareness has unfolded due to two primary factors. The first factor is the evolving human mind. The intellect reveals Becoming, while the intuition reveals Being. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of blind, rebellious idealism exacerbated by cynical manipulation.  This meeting was held on December 4, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 167, reading no. 104. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 171 – 172. The group aligned, then sounded the second stanza of the Great Invocation. Illusion, glamour and maya must be overcome first in the individual, then in nations, and finally in the world. We must gain facility in moving with ease in both directions – from top to bottom and from bottom to top. The three techniques for dispelling, dissipating and dispersing distortions of reality are summarized. The Technique of the Presence is related to the Yoga of Synthesis and movement from the 3rd to the 4th initiation. The Technique of Light is related to Raja Yoga and to the 2nd initiation. The Technique of Indifference is related to Karma Yoga and the 1st initiation. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of blind, rebellious idealism exacerbated by cynical manipulation. This meeting was held on November 27, 2020.

The group aligned, then sounded the second stanza of the Great Invocation. Michael briefly reviewed some aspects of the last reading. The signposts of dissipating glamour and dispelling illusion indicate the way to go, but does not reveal the goal. The Aquarian Age will be that of knowledge rather than belief. Learning the lessons of the present world conditions are not small demands.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 162, reading no. 102. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 167 – 170.  Michael discussed the ordered and regulated procedure of the disciple expressing both Christ Consciousness and the Buddhic principle (both potencies must be developed), and how it was initiated upon the astral plane by the Buddha and on the mental plane by Christ.  It indicated the approaching maturity of humanity, and has been slowly gathering momentum since.  It has reached a point of intensive usefulness as the channel of communication between Shamballa and the Hierarchy has been opened and enlarged, and the contact between both and humanity has been more firmly established.  The success of this esoteric communication is not dependent on the esoteric knowledge of the few; rather it will be dependent on the tendency of the many who aspire toward spiritual realities, who seek a new and better way of life for all, and who desire the food of the whole and right human relations.   The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Devious and Constant Manipulation.   This meeting was held on October 9, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 161, reading no. 101. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 167 – 168.  Michael began with the second stanza of the Great Invocation from Externalization of the Hierarchy, p248-250, released to Humanity in 1940 during the darkness of WW II.  Then he began discussing glamor and how substance is regenerated under the magnetic power of love.  Venus is so important in dispelling glamor, as well as Ray 5 because the quality of the 5th Ray Lord is the most luminous.  When the personality has reached a point of purification, dedication, and illumination then the attractive power of love and understanding can function.  When Christ Consciousness can be expressed through substance, then illumination of the personality takes place (called Glorification).  When the embodied Buddhic principle is consummated in the disciple and his integrated personality is expresses the principle of love (both these potencies are necessary – light and love), then we find radiant expression in the transfigured disciple.  It takes the fusing of Light and Love in reality (not just an expression we use).  Venus is closely connected to the Earth, and the power of Love is transmitted to Earth and illuminates substance.  When done, the Ray 3 personality of the Earth blends with its Ray 2 Soul.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Devious and Constant Manipulation.   This meeting was held on October 2, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 160, reading no. 100. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 166 – 167. Michael briefly reviewed the conflict now occurring between the Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of the Presence, and means by which we can help. The symbol of all manifestation is a point within a circle. The fundamental glamour and illusion that was written about for this book still remain. The potential for dissipating and dispelling these distortions is centered within the two Avatars of the Buddha and the Christ. The work of these two Avatars is concentrated through the world disciples and their initiates, and will inevitably shatter illusion and dispel glamour. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Devious and Constant Manipulation.   This meeting was held on September 25, 2020.

Michael briefly reviewed some of the work being done by those seeing the conflict between the spiritual ideal and its material opponent. There are three spiritual energies that will lead to a clearer comprehension. These energies include the intuition which will dispel world illusion, illumination that will dissipate world glamour, and inspiration that will devitalize the attractive power of maya. New life is being released into the planet. Constructive undertakings demonstrating spiritual values must be done individually and by nations as wholes. We must also present to the world the truths taught by the Buddha (the Lord of Light enunciating the Four Noble Truths) and the Christ (the Lord of Love showing a love for the whole). We should use renunciation and sacrificial will in our lives of service. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Devious and Constant Manipulation.   This meeting was held on September 18, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 158, reading no. 98.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 163 – 164. When this book was written, Germany had focused itself in the most potent aspect of emotional glamour, Japan with maya, and Italy with illusion. The conflict between the spiritual ideal and its material opponent appeared simultaneously, just like occurred four million years ago. We must restore the lost balance individually and on a planetary scale. There is work being done by those who see this conflict, some of the work being discussed by Michael. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Lying, even Pathological Lying.  This meeting was held on September 11, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 157, reading no. 97.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 161 – 163, beginning Section Three, The Ending of Glamour.  Michael briefly reviewed that initiation prepares an applicant for the revelation of the PRESENCE. The most concentrated expressions of glamour include greed, selfishness, aggression and materialism, and every nation is tainted with this universal condition. Awareness of the threefold nature underlying the realized dualism of the conflict merges into a stronger awareness of that dualism by aspirants, disciples and initiates of the world. Orthodox religion has been preoccupied with the Dweller on the Threshold rather than the fact of the Angel. Because of the balance being adjusted by humanitarian attitudes, many are abandoning orthodox religion. The spiritual revolution is a balancing process. The methods of reestablishing spiritual contact can bring in the new world era and its cultural order. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Pathological Selfishness.   This meeting was held on September 4, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 156, reading no. 96.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 159 – 160. In a brief review, Michael asks: What will it mean to sacrifice the Personality for the Soul? One meaning of the Angel absorbing the Dweller may be that of the personality Ray becoming the sub-ray of the soul Ray. The Angel “coming to Earth” is that of infusing the personality. All true aspirants have taken the first initiation. Today, Humanity is the Dweller and the Hierarchy is the Angel. On this planet we are cultivating the second aspect of divinity. Identification as the personality is itself also a glamour. Astrologically, the Sun and Moon are blockages to higher energies. Soul energy can strengthen personality rebellion. The Angel reveals the personality for what it is, and it is not pleasant. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Personal Superiority.  This meeting was held on August 28,  2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 155, reading no. 95. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 157 – 159. Michael briefly reviewed the rays to be governing Humanity during the coming Age of Aquarius. This all relates to how we are to overcome the Dweller on the Threshold. At the close of each spiritual cycle, Humanity produces its own Dweller, making certain initiations available to advanced humanity. Our current Dweller is related to Scorpio and Mercury. What is coming is a synchronization that will produce scientific magic. The Aryan race is maturing, and sufficiently developed to step upon the Paths of Discipleship and Initiation. Scientific fusion between Soul and personality is never more possible than now. Our major problem is whether the Dweller will be sacrificed with love and understanding to the Angel. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Personality. This meeting was held on August 21,  2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 154, reading no. 94. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 156 – 157. Michael discussed the rays governing Humanity and conditioning the present world problem – of the ending Age of Pisces: Soul (Ray 2), Personality (Ray 3), Mental (Ray 5), Astral (Ray 6), and Physical (Ray 7). He presented a hypothesis that the Monadic ray of Humanity is Ray 1. Note that the same soul and personality rays are operative in the planet and Humanity. This helps us understand the changes that must occur. Ray 4 forms the basic personality ray of the creative hierarchy of human monads. The Aquarian Age presents different rays for humanity: Personality (Ray 5), Mental (Ray 4), and the same astral and physical rays. These are the energies humanity has been, and will work with. This discussion also covered major and minor incarnations of humanity. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Devious and Constant Manipulation.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 153, reading no. 93. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 155 – 156. Michael briefly reviewed the switch between the positive and negative Dweller, through the light of the Soul. Astrologically, the positive Dweller is controlled by the influences of Leo, Gemini controls the balancing stage, and the negative Dweller is controlled by Sagittarius. One’s soul ray affects karma, times and seasons, and conditions the influence of the Angel upon the Dweller. The personality ray controls the Dweller until the soul ray slowly begins to take control. Our five controlling energies (physical-emotional-mental-personality-soul) also govern the relation between the Dweller and the Angel. Perhaps at the next meeting we can share our thoughts regarding a formula of going from Dweller to Angel: “Lead us from X to Y”. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of Dictatorship, Rulership and Wide Control. This meeting was held on August 7,  2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 152, reading no. 92. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 154 – 155. Michael briefly reviewed the Dweller as an integrated unity. When one’s life is reoriented under conscious soul impression, the Dweller takes form. Our problem is to make this a fact in our experience. The Dweller begins to form when one is controlled to a great extent by mental influence and is spiritually inclined. There are mainly three stages whereby the Dweller is controlled and mastered. The stage where the Dweller controls when the personality dominates. The stage where the Dweller or the personality is urged in two directions. The stage where the Dweller consciously seeks cooperation of the soul, perhaps the position of the true disciple. We must learn to steady the Dweller by holding the mind steady in the light. The soul is not the personality, nor the soul on its own plane. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of mindless devotion. This meeting was held on July 31,  2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 151, reading no. 91. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 152 – 154. The focus in this reading concerns the contrast between the Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of the Presence. The Angel of the Presence is a projection of the Solar Angel from the Buddhic plane into the causal body on the higher Mental plane. One of those we meet at the cusp of the seventh house (ruled by Saturn) is the Dweller. The Presence is the Monad. The Dweller embodies our hindrances and its limitations to spiritual contact and realization. We live in a period of transition into the Hall of Wisdom, indicating that the first initiation has been taken by humanity. Soul fusion is the issue, which lies entirely in our own hands. In this fusion, the ray of the personality becomes a sub-ray of the soul. The Dweller constitutes the sum-total of the lower nature, essentially the personality. The battle with the personality depends upon the its ray. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of fear. This meeting was held on July 24,  2020.

Humanity is usually unaware of the astral energy used in angry thoughts and loud words. Astral living is generally not suitable for humans, which “imperil the resident” of the human form. There followed a review of comments and questions regarding imperil and other related topics. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of fear.

Dissipation Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 149, reading no. 89. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 151 – 152. This reading includes the thoughts of irritation and “imperil” which is greatly increasing. It generates a poison located in the region of the solar plexus and stomach area, and so is a disease which is contagious to an alarming extent. Disciples must learn to live in the head and the heart in order to end this disease and to help transfer the forces of the solar plexus to the heart center. Michael then began discussing references to “imperil” found within the AAB books. Imperil is a reaction of the disciple to world evil, which is expressed in negative and unconstructive manners. It consists of the problems of worry and irritation, with five points given of why it is so dangerous. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of fear.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 148, reading no. 88. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 150 – 151. Many people are only inspired by desires of many types, yet these desires are an emotional form of maya seated in the sacral center. These people are helpless under the impulsion of the forces of maya. The problem involves bringing all chakras under soul inspiration, and them to transmute the forces of the lower centers into the energies of the centers above the diaphragm. Right control of the breath has a relationship with raising the chakric system energies. There are both legitimate and illegitimate methods for quickening the evolutionary process. Irritation is substantial and precipitates against the walls of the nervous system. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of narcissism.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 147, reading no. 87. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 148 – 150. We began a new section targeting just what maya may be. Prana, the energy of the etheric body, is the first “substance” which we encounter. Maya is primarily the aggregate of forces controlling the seven force centers. The bulk of humanity is controlled by maya. We must learn to allow the Soul to control the ancient authority of those forces. Veils we encounter on the etheric planes include impulsion, distortion (astrally), separation (mentally), and aspiration (as we approach the astral plane). Maya feeds a separative attitude and stimulates the personality. The study and understanding of motives can determine the factors inspiring daily life. What is our major activating motive? The densest forces of maya are concentrated in the sacral center. There are also emotional expressions of maya. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of racial superiority. This meeting was held on June 26, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 146, reading no. 86. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 145 -148. The glamour that the Tibetan asked the second Seed Group to work at dissipating was that of separateness. This glamour may express as hatred, active dislike, and/or voiced criticism. We are all convinced that our point of view is the correct one, but we may not realize the separativeness of our viewpoint. The Germans and the Jews have both been separative, and have regarded themselves as the chosen people. From the soul perspective, neither attitude is correct or justifiable. Racial problems are far bigger and more deeply rooted in human consciousness than any individual can perceive. Impersonal love towards all groups is important. In meditation, the quality of love expressed counts more than any analysis of conditions or technique used. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of racial superiority based on superficial prejudice and ancient relations. This meeting was held on June 19, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 145, reading no. 85. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 143 -145. Michael reviewed portions of the last reading, dealing with enlightenment. Refusing to be disturbed or distressed by outer conditions will result in no bad effects. The equanimity expressed by Libra and Venus are important at the second initiation. This reading includes a brief meditation directing soul light to the solar plexus, then by the Will, raise that light to the heart center. Focusing on the soul, whose nature is LOVE, focus all that light within the heart center, seeing it as a radiant Sun. Scorpio rules illumination, which can be defined as the antithesis of glamour. (This is limited to certain aspects of illumination). Glamour is a distortion, and with the eyes of the heart, the heart being connected to the Buddhic plane, that distortion can end and something more real can take its place. The light of the soul is like an immense searchlight, which can be turned in many directions and focused on many levels. The mind can essentially subdue the emotions through the presentations of facts. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of selfish promotion of the personality as more important than the soul. This meeting was held on Jun 12, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 144, reading no. 84. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 142 – 143. Michael began with a brief review of the four premises discussed in the last meeting. Is our light streaming forth from the heart center? The fifth premise involves letting go of all tension or strain, and learning to work with pure faith and love. This is disinterested faith. Due to ancient origin of glamour, there can be no haste in this work. But, there are elements of danger in this work. We must make the transference of energy required from the solar plexus to the heart center. We should regard any disturbance as only a temporary difficulty, as it is due to the service we are rendering. Our proper attention and refusing to be distressed or disturbed will omit this feeling of bad results. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of violence. This meeting was held on May 29, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 143, reading no. 83. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 140 – 142. Michael began by reminding us of the importance of the meditation process (5 steps outlined in From Intellect to Intuition, page 99: Concentration, Meditation, Contemplation, Illumination, and Inspiration.)  He continue by reviewing certain premises concerning light and glamour. First: The quality and major characteristic of the soul is Light. Recognized contact with the soul occurs through meditation. Two signs of contacting this higher vibration include “seeing” a light within one’s head and sensing different vibrations. Second: The major characteristic of the astral plane is glamour. It is the wilderness described in the Bible. The pairs of opposites battle in this field. Don’t be distracted by the sideshow and miss the main event. Third: The disciple’s astral body as a response apparatus must establish a relation between the soul and the astral plane. Fourth: When contact between the soul, astral body, and astral plane is made, the disciple must carry the Light from the solar plexus to the heart. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of misidentification. This meeting was held on February 21, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 142, reading no. 82. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 139 – 140. The process we are studying is a means to exchange illusion for intuition. Michael began a new section contrasting glamour and illumination. Glamour on the 2nd through 4th subplanes of the astral plane appears as a “land shrouded in a thick fog of varying densities.” Mara-Kara, the planetary cosmic evil, is centered on the astral plane. Only the light of the soul can dissipate the fogs of glamour. It reveals the hidden glamourous distortions of reality. The power of glamour is brought to an end by a steady prolonged period of concentration which is given to the dispelling of the condition. Illumination, for this purpose, is the focused distribution of light which is thrown down by the soul into the astral plane.  This involves the conscious use of light, first of all as a searchlight, scanning the astral horizon and localizing the glamour causing the trouble; and secondly as a focused distribution of light to dissipate the fog and mists found.  The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of misidentification. This meeting was held on February 7, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 141, reading no. 81. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 137 – 139. Michael briefly reviewed the first group of persons who are subject to revelation through an awakening intuition. The second group includes those on the line of the prophets. These persons are able to briefly touch the intuition to learn the immediate future, and they have the power to point out that future to the public. The third group includes the true priests—by spiritual calling and not by personal desire. The true priest loves deeply, has wisdom and an awakened intuition, and thereby receives revelation. The fourth group includes the practical mystics or occultists. They have evoked the intuition through a disciplined life, ardent aspiration, and a trained intellect. They interpret and create temporary systems of knowledge. The New Group of World Servers is a partial example of this group. Ponder in which group we might find ourselves. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of selfish partisanship. This meeting was held on January 31, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 140, reading no. 80. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 135 – 137. The focus of this reading concerns the intuition, the opposite of illusion. The intuition is used to overcome illusion. If used to overcome glamour, it may make the glamour worse. Real intuition begins on the fourth subplane of the buddhic plane as we rise in consciousness. Illusion imprisons one on the mental plane, barring out all that is higher—love, mind, etc. The intuition is the source of revelation, providing understanding of the Divine Plan. We must recall what the intuition really is—straight knowledge; it is not psychic apprehension or hunch. It has tremendous advantages if we can cultivate it. We are all trying to become souls in true expression through the personality. The first type of persons subject to revelation by intuition are on the line of the world saviors. See page 518 of Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. II for those on this line. World saviors come in on Pisces. This group includes a range of persons on the spiritual path. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of disregard for truth because desire for a certain point of view is too strong, fervent dishonest bias. This meeting was held on January 24, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 139, reading no. 79. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 134 – 135. Michael discussed how brotherhood is seeking mental form—a state experienced by early humanity but on a higher turn of the spiral. This is the immediate goal of humanity at this time. Saturn rules the first decanate of Aquarius, which we are approaching. This prepares us for a lighter and brighter time. The “cycle of necessity” in the text refers to Saturn. This presents a very dire method to achieve a very high goal. Brotherhood is waiting to precipitate under the triangle of Mercury (as the mind), Venus (as kama-manas), and the Earth (as physicality). Michael identified the Monad as the true realm of brotherhood at the moment, ruled by Jupiter, Neptune, Virgo and Pisces. One definition of “ideal” is a “temporary expression of a basic idea”. Because it is temporary, we must not cling to our present ideals, which are only partial understandings of truth. We have been given another definition of “illusion”: it is ideals, mental concepts, and formulated thoughtforms. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of narrow idealism leading to the disregard for truth, because the desire for a particular point of view is too strong. This meeting was held on January 17, 2020.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 138, reading no. 78. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 132-134. Michael continued the discussion about partiality which he began at the last meeting. The world is suffering today, probably inevitably, from the misuse of the divine faculty of touching the idea and transforming it into the ideal. Master M says to not repent, but to substitute correct action. Consider that each of us is really an idea expressed through form. Illusions must eventually disappear, and we will thereby grasp the relative value of the true and the false. People with partial vision energize thoughts which are partial in relation to the whole. The energies we pour into things strengthen the thoughtforms which are partial ideals. Consider evil as the good that should have been outlived. Illusion creates a barrier which is hard for the soul to come through. An ideal is only a means to an end, a springboard when its limitations are understood. There is a right time for an idea to manifest as an ideal. The immediate goal of humanity at this time is a renewed spiritual relationship through training in right human relations. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of captivation by emotion which distorts clear thinking. This meeting was held on November 29, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 137, reading no. 77. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 131-132. Michael began by discussing how a goal of humanity is to reveal cosmic organization without distortion. He then reviewed the definition of illusion. The realm of ideas emanates from the buddhic plane. Idealists are seldom in touch with the underlying ideas from which their misinterpretations have risen. Ideals can be both religious and non-religious. This discourse on illusion describes the story of separation, which is a great heresy of truth. Disciples must be careful of that to which they pledge themselves, which is usually only partial truth. How have we experienced and expressed partiality in our lives? Humility, being an adjusted sense of right proportion, can save us from narrowness. Throughout the ages, limited ideologies have had a sorry effect upon humanity. The problem with illusion is misinterpretation. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the glamour of disregard for truth, because desire for a certain point of view is too strong. Fervent bias. This meeting was held on November 22, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 136, reading no. 76. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 131.  Michael reviewed the fact that a mental illusion might be described as an idea, embodied in an ideal form, that then permits no scope for any other forms of the ideal.  The person gets tied to the idealism and can’t move beyond it.  We work to combat this as we work to disperse maya, dissipate glamor, and dispel illusion.  The Hierarchy is not subject to illusion, as they must be free from all incentive of illusion before they become members of the Hierarchy.  The Seven Rays are the source of ideas, and thus the Hierarchy is open and receptive-free from illusion—to the seven major groups of ideas that are the idea of God, expressed in a seven-fold manner for the need of humanity.  We need all the rays and the ideas which those rays bestow, as each has a specific contribution to make.  They work in concert, each interrelated with the other six expressions of the same divine idea.  There can be no narrowing down to just one idea, as can happen to man, being conditioned by his own soul or personality ray.  Few idealists are personally in touch with an idea given to them; they are only in touch with the human interpretation of the idea as formulated by a disciple or intuitive.  An illusion can, therefore, be defined as the consequence of an idea (translated into ideal) being regarded as the complete story, rather than part of a wider presentation. When visioned and grasped in a narrow perspective like this, it creates a distortion of the truth. Michael also fielded questions that identified the 7 Laws of the Soul as outlined in Esoteric Psychology, Vol II, beginning on page 85; and the 6 laws and principles outlined in Discipleship in the New Age, Vol II, pages 237-239. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of hiding and distorting the truth (the end justifies the means if my side can benefit).  This meeting was held on November 15, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 135, reading no. 75. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, pages 128-129. This section of the text, we study four essential contrasts: 1-between Illusion and its opposite Intuition; 2-between Glamour and its opposite Illumination; 3-between Maya and its opposite Inspiration; 4-between the Dweller on the Threshold and its opposite The Angel of the PRESENCE. In the case of illusion and intuition we must remember that intuition dispels. We are warned not to bring too much soul energy into the glamour work, rather to use the light of the fifth ray, dissipating through mentality. Maya – a chaotic emotional mess – calls for dispersion with the order of Inspiration by using an organized approach to the physical plane. The contrast of the Dweller and the Presence, a projection of the Solar Angel into the higher causal body as the Angel of the Presence introducing us to the monad suggests there is a fifth initiation process that involves the Dweller, the Angel of the Presence and the Solar Angel. These contrasts embody the traps dominating our functioning – and must be overcome. DK moves into a deeper discussion of each contrast. Illusory thoughts produce a limitation and the Intuition can be used to liberate us from inherited ideas and ideologies that limit progress with powerful conditioning of tradition and background. Modern ideas especially in Europe with a combination of the 5th and 6th rays makes the lower mind more rigid and reactive and these modern ideas are then interpreted through tradition, national “predispositions” that short-circuit the higher interpretations of symbolic higher ideas. Many people, though intelligent in a concrete manner, are still operating in the Hall of Ignorance. We are limited in our interpretations of what are dimly sensed new ideas, the Raincloud of Knowable Things, and must learn to react correctly and not be swayed by surrounding influences and field of service. Three influences, past, present and future, limit us in contacting the world of ideas, and mental illusion ties, limits and imprisons the man proving to be a disastrous conditioning factor. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of mistaken identity – racism. This meeting was held on November 8, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 134, reading no. 74. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 126-128. This section of the text, DK considers dualism and the pairs of opposites delineating the experiences and recollections that “deeply colour” the life and later confront the initiate with the major  Dweller – as a pledged disciple. The objective is understanding the great task ahead as Scorpio rules and leads to the Capricorn phase in which one goes through the pain and sacrifice, the privation in resolving the pairs of opposites. The personality and soul integrate and the Presence as a projection of the Monad lasts through all the stages of development from accepted disciple through Master. If we want to overcome that dualism it takes time being solved by understanding the principle of Oneness. The disciple is like the god, Janus, who can look in two directions at the same time looking down at the personality and at the soul. DK differentiates between the control of form, matter, versus the control of substance, which is etheric. The key is Contemplation which is Libran, and Identification, the highest form ending in the sign Pisces. We must overcome duality without negating its mayavic presence. Its form is not real. We also learn that DK uses the term disciple as quite flexible and that term can be followed up the higher levels: the Solar Angel is a disciple; the Christ is a disciple, and on it goes. For our purposes we will consider disciple in those stages up to the 5th Initiation. We must fulfill all the requirements along the way. We receive greater and greater training and will, if we persist, act as the ‘capstone of that hierarchy’ created. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of political manipulation and lying.   This meeting was held on October 25, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 133, reading no. 73. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 125-126.  In considering the questions: 1) What is the method… it is White Magic, The soul does have an intuitive content especially in the sacrifice petals. 2) What glamours are dominant in the world today and why? Partisanship, manipulation, any act for a partisan nature, fear of death and materialism that keep us riveted on our own nature. Many glamours, broadly speaking, involve thinking of the self in personal ways. 3) “Do you have any idea of what will be demanded of you?” A powerful 6th ray would attune the group to the work of dissipating glamour. “Do you have any idea of what will be demanded of you?”  Then we entered into a new section on the higher and lower glamours. Michael noted that both the Tibetan and Alice Bailey have a ‘horror’ of glamour. What are the subsidiary causes? a. The planetary material bias and materialistic fixation on the personality as if it were the primary focus. b. The glamour initiated by humanity as a whole at the beginning of the Atlantean period and aggravated by the incoming Moon Chain monads and the members of the Black Lodge 12 million years ago. c. The glamour of the individual not yet mentally polarized that are started in this life. Not many of the Tibetan’s students had reached the point of mental polarization. Materialism is such a superficial way of looking at life, believing that inner states of consciousness are the result of matter. Illusion, glamour and maya are differentiated with these results defined: conquering of illusion, dissipation of glamour and mastering of maya. Not everyone treads the Path of Initiation. Many hardships, challenges and exertions are required. Additional topics discussed: The Dweller, the Angel of the Presence and recapitulation, the symbolism of the dodecahedron, discussion of the six and the one, and the age of the forerunners. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of Partisanship – Seeing Only One’s Own preference.  This meeting was held on October 25, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 132, reading no. 72.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 123-124.  Glamors, Master DK tells us, are legion.  Several of his disciples were struggling with glamor, some left the group, failing for personality reasons (lacking group realization and were occupied with themselves).  The major task of the glamor group was to dissipate some of the universal glamor through united meditation.  The disciples went through the following stages as their mind developed intuitively:  the idea (based on intuitive perception), the ideal (based on mental formulation and distribution), the idol ( based on the concretizing tendency of physical manifestation.  From Glamour: A World Problem page 205, Michael discussed that the Path of Evolution is in fact the path of recognitions, leading to revelation.  This process of recognition, focusing, dissipation and consequent revelation goes on continually from the time a disciple treads the Path of Accepted Discipleship until the third initiation.  The clue all success in this process is, therefore, connected with meditation and the holding of the mind steady in the light.  These lights are varied (the light of matter itself, found in every atom of substance, the light of the vital or etheric vehicle – a light which is the reflection of the One Light, the light of the instinct, the light of the intellect or the light of knowledge, the light of the soul, the light of the intuition).  From light to light we pass, from revelation to revelation until we pass out of the realm of light into the realm of life which is, as yet to us, pure darkness.  It will be obvious to you that this increasing light – unfolds before the eyes – first of all the world of forms, then the world of ideals, then the nature of the soul, of ideas and of divinity.  In today’s world we see minds coming together to focus upon world problems, different disciplines sharing their insight. Minds are increasingly becoming attuned to the light of the Soul, to a more coherent light which is bringing a holistic perspective to birth in minds all over the world.   The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of always leading away from understanding Truth and Reality (hiding or distorting, fabrication of the untrue/false for personal advantage. This meeting was held on October 18, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 131, reading no. 71.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 123. In light of the current situation in the Middle East, Michael commented on the 4th Ray Glamour of Confused Combat: the first response of some people is to take things that could be worked out in a peaceful manner and instead use combat. We may see a rise in this type of glamour in the coming years with the forces of obstruction and the lower Saturnian response forming the battleground that prevents entry into the deeper possibilities of the Spiritual Triad. Michael reviewed some of the glamours of Ray 6 and completed the list of glamours for Ray 7: the glamour of magical work exalts the ego with a feeling of great power; the glamour of the relation of the opposites; the glamour of the subterranean powers, a certain pride among magicians of lower magic commanding lower intelligent forces on the path of degeneration; the glamour of that which brings together in the form of “the actor and the important one” in the bringing together; the glamour of the physical body, acting as if the physical body is the real; the glamour of the mysterious and the secret; the glamour of sex magic; and the glamour of the emerging manifested forces meaning — I have power; I have control.”  Leading from the glamours to positives that can emerge was also covered: white magic, the use of soul powers for spiritual ends; the identification of oneself with reality; right order through right magic (the will of the soul to bring forward the vision of the Plan); power to cooperate with the whole instead of the part; understanding of the Plan – the 7th Ray is very connected with the Divine Plan; the magical work of interpretation touches on the higher archetypes bringing fulfillment as the highest and the lowest meet on the dense physical plane; and manifestation of divinity. The group added instances in which we can see examples of confused combat in politics in countries around the world. In the coming years, anti-democratic forces will become even more apparent. To respond, for aspirants depth of feeling of the heart is absolutely essential, according to Master Morya. The 4th Ray will help us resolve with its harmonizing effect. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour meditation itself was on the Glamour of Confused Combat. This meeting was held on October 11, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 130, reading no. 70. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 123. Michael began the discussion with a reminder that we are now in the years of the forerunner and it is a time for testing for humanity and we must be equal to the challenge we face with all the turmoil going on right now.  There will be a New Age, but only if our glamors don’t get the best of us—we must make sure that doesn’t happen.  We have to make sure we all do our personal work, recognize our own glamors, and not let any little fault stop our progress.  Michael reminded us about the seven Directions from the Law of Repulse (Esoteric Psychology Volume II, pages 166-172) and how it works out, destroying anything that hinders us in our progress.  We must learn discipline (physical), dispassion (astral), discrimination (mental), decentralization (personality) and detachment (soul).  Michael referred again briefly to the section from Esoteric Psychology Volume II on page 39: the “Blessed One” stanza for Ray 7. Blessed Ones Commentary 13 found at http://www.makara.us/portal/?page_id=343 provides an analysis of these “few succinct and terse phrases” for the expression of Monads on Ray VII.   His main discussion was on the list from Esoteric Psychology Vol II, page 43, describing the various rays and how the individualized Spirit specifically expresses through Ray 7: initially as black magic (selfish use of magic), power to sit on the fence until selfish values emerge, disorder and chaos (misunderstanding the Plan), wrong use of speech, untruth, and sex magic (selfish perversion of soul powers).  All these lead eventually to white magic (use of soul powers for spiritual ends), identification of oneself with reality, right order through right magic, the power to cooperate with the Whole, understanding the Plan, magical work of interpretation, and manifestation of divinity.  Next session Michael will finish up by reviewing the list of glamours for Ray 7 found in Glamour: A World Problem, page 123.  The meditation itself was on partisanship (people narrow in thought, not concerned with the welfare of the whole, but rather looking only for success for a small part). This meeting was held on October 4, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 129, reading no. 69.  The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem, page 123. Mars and Neptune, as the sixth ray planets, need to be kept in mind as the 6th ray glamours are reviewed. Neptune is higher than Mars, is a sacred, synthesizing planet but can cause confusion and misguided idealism. The number 15 is also very important as we consider the 6th Ray. Esoteric Psychology page 26 in Volume One concerns the rays and cycles, and provides the idea of 150 year cycles as part of the larger cycle of 1500 years. The fading of the 6th ray presents negativity, fanaticism and sentimental response to old forms, a backward looking tendency. Mars is involved appearing as militarism and making trouble with groups. Suspicion of motives is noted as the early expression of the 6thray. Rapid reaction and confused idealism also reflect the Martian quality. Dreaminess, impracticality, longing for heaven, intense capacity to be personal, all speak to the Neptunian qualities of the 6th Ray. Libra with the middle way and the 6th ray can be dedicated to the peace movement for the good of the whole. The current global issue of climate change and the young leaders emerging with passion and idealism were discussed in relation to the positive aspects of the 6thray, connected to the will and intentness of the 6thand 1strays. Those with rapport on the emotional plane and the ability to work on that plane with 5th ray, are able to dissipate glamour with their added commitment and vision of the truth of the 6th ray. As part of the discussion of the Ray 6 glamours, Michael referred again briefly to the section from Esoteric Psychology Volume II on page 38: the “Blessed One” stanza for Ray 6. Blessed Ones Commentary 12 found at http://www.makara.us/portal/?page_id=343 provides an analysis of these “few succinct and terse phrases” for the expression of Monads on Ray VI. Michael also reviewed the names of the 6th Ray Lord, as these are instructive in understanding the glamours of the 6th ray. The names are found in Esoteric Psychology Volume I on page 80; many are Martian. The list of glamours was reviewed: the glamour of devotion; the glamour of adherence to forms and persons; the glamour of idealism; the glamour of loyalties and of creeds; the glamour of emotional response; the glamour of sentimentality; the glamour of interference; the glamour of the lower pairs of opposites; the glamour of World Saviors and Teachers; the glamour of narrow vision; and the glamour of fanaticism. Perhaps the 6th Ray glamours will be reviewed next time focusing on how these appear in our lives. The group meditated using the Formula for the Dissipation of the Glamour of Hiding of the Truth (Cover Up & Mutual Deception).   This meeting was held on September 27, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 128, reading no. 68. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem: page 122 and covered the glamours of Ray 5 (the glamour of materiality, or over-emphasis of form; the glamour of intellect; the glamour of knowledge and of definition; the glamour of assurance based on a narrow point of view; the glamour of the form which hides reality; the glamour of organization; the glamour of the outer which hides the inner). Before Michael discussed the Ray 5 glamours, he began with information from Esoteric Psychology Vol II, page 37-38 regarding the Ray 5 “Blessed One” stanza (Individualization and the Seven Ray Types); Michael has a series of commentaries on the Blessed Ones available on Makara at http://www.makara.us/portal/?page_id=343. Michael continued with EP II page 42, discussing the Ray 5 problems criticism; the energy of ignorance, the power to rationalize and destroy; mental separation; desire for knowledge; detailed analysis; intense materialism; intensification of the power to isolate; the implications of wrong emphasis; distorted views of the truth; mental devotion to form and form activity; theology – all leading to a knowledge of reality; the realization of the soul and its potentialities; power to recognize and contact the Angel of the Presence; sensitivity to Deity, light, and wisdom; spiritual and mental devotion; the power to take initiation. Michael discussed that there is a Blessed One who is the Monad (the Angel of the Presence) and one who is the extension of the Monad (the pilgrim). Ray 5 relates to Aquarius and the coming Aquarian Age; also related to the incoming Ray 7 cycle. Ray 5 relates to initiation and deals with electricity; initiation is an electrical phenomenon, related to the rod administered during initiation. In EP II, p84 can be found the progress a soul makes regarding 3 forms of electrical energy passing upward to the place of power: “Then let the soul look out upon an inner world of light divine. Let the word triumphant go forth: ‘I mastered energy for I am energy Itself. The Master and the mastered are but One.'” The meditation was on a Ray 3 glamour of a devious and continuous manipulation (dishonesty, disrespect, wanting to win at all costs). This meeting was held on September 20, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 127, reading no. 67. The reading was from Glamour: A World Problem: page 122 and covered the glamours of Ray 4: the glamour of harmony aiming at personal comfort; the glamour of war; the glamour of conflict with the objective of imposing righteousness and peace; the glamour of vague artistic perception; the glamour of psychic perception instead of intuition; the glamor of musical perception; the glamour of the pairs of opposites, in the higher sense. The pairs of opposites are ruled by the 4th Ray and Libra. The pairs of opposites are vertical with a higher value assigned to the one of the opposites on the higher vertical point. Master DK had many disciples with 4th ray glamours and 4th ray in their chart. Higher intuitive ability in the mind lead us through “concrete mindedness” to the buddhic plane where we can cultivate the intuition. The book Light on the Path by Mabel Collin’s was referenced particularly in terms of acting “as IF.” Michael had introduced this webinar with some comments on the glamour of dictatorship and the current world situation. The meditation therefore was on the glamour of dictatorship and its attendant self-centeredness and self-satisfaction. This meeting was held on September 13, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 126, reading no. 66. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem: page 121-122 and covered the glamors of Ray 3: the glamor of being busy; the glamor of cooperation with the Plan in an individual, not a group way; the glamor of good intentions (basically selfish); the glamor of he spider at the center; the galmor of “God in the machine”;  the glamor of devious and continuous manipulation; the glamor of self-importance.  Michael also made correlations to the information in “Esoteric Psychology, Vol II” pages 40 and 41 on how the individualized Spirit expresses itself through Ray 3:  Force manipulation through selfish desire; intelligent use of force with wrong motive; intense material and mental activity; the realization of energy as an end in itself; longing for glory, beauty for material objecives; submergence in illusion, glamor, and maya.  These things lead to: the manipulation of energy in order to reveal beauty and truth; the use of forces intelligently for the furtherance of the Plan; Ordered rhythmic activity in cooperation with the Whole; desire for right revelation of divinity and light; adherence to right action; the revelation of glory and good will.  The meditation was on a Ray 1 glamor, that of dictatorship.  This meeting was held on September 6, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 125, reading no. 65. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 121-122 . Although the Tibetan says the glamours for each ray are legion, he does provide us with several for each Ray. In this webinar Michael goes back through more of the Ray II glamours that had not been covered. In Esoteric PsychologyVolume II the subordination of all soul powers is mentioned on pages 40-41. Michael described in context, the ‘unholy mixture’ of thinking and feeling or kama-manas which to overcome requires abstraction and strong mental focusing not yet mental polarization. This occurs some time between the 2ndand the 3rdinitiations. Some second ray types are separative. Glamour of too complete an understanding, in the search for a vast understanding and not apply it due to a fear of impact which relates to inaction, sets up a karmic condition. There is a lot of suffering on the second ray, agonizing to the goal and eventually dissipating the glamour of self-pity. The realization of true identity liberates one from self-pity. The directives on page 660 of DINA-II are the remedy to glamour through the acquisition of the 11 qualities given with the 12th being the synthesis of the eleven. Michael continued through self-sacrifice and selfish unselfishness to complete the second ray glamour list given by DK. The meditation itself was on the glamour of self-pity. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 30, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 124, reading no. 64. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 121-122. Although the Tibetan says the glamors for each ray are legion, he does provide us with a few for each Ray. The Ray III glamors given are that of being busy, cooperation with the Plan in an individual rather than group way, active scheming, creative work without true motive, good—but selfish—intentions, the spider at the center, God in the machine, devious and continuous manipulation, and the glamor of self-importance. Ray III is an acute ray of Divine mental perception; it creates a problem for us, however, because it can accomplish its purpose without higher direction from the soul, so it can lead into retrogression until we have brought the generic Ray III personality into alignment with the generic Ray II Soul. These lists of glamors we are studying can help us determine or refine our rayological profiles when we resonate with the glamors for a certain ray. What are our pet peeves? Examining them might also help us hone in on our ray glamors. Also, in Esoteric Psychology, Vol II, pages 231-256 the trends are given for the Egoic Rays (tendency to synthesize, quality of hidden vision, urge to formulate a plan, urge to creative life, the factor of analysis, the quality to idealize, and the interplay of the great dualities). Ray III can be very manipulative, but for higher purposes, it has to have a heart (like we see with many prominent philanthropists in the world). The meditation itself was on the glamour of thinking that we always know better. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 23, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 123, reading no. 63. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 121. The glamours are so many that D.K. is picking out only a few. Whatever distorts the apprehension of reality, and which involves our desire nature, is what we can call a glamour. It largely has to do with the kama and manas together, and the inability to distinguish them separately. We have to move through this until we maintain the mind steady in the light, which is not such an easy thing to do. Michael briefly reviewed the first ray glamours, so often a problem of centralization and the misuse of power to emphasize the individual. Today’s reading was on the second ray glamours, initially providing an overview of all those listed. There is not a hard and fast line between the glamours that are causing difficulties. Everything that draws attention to the personality, and emphasizes it at the expense of the real soul will lead to glamourous difficulty. Michael presented information from EPII, page 40, regarding how we go from the initial misuse of power to something that is much more in keeping with the Plan. The focus then turned to a more detailed understanding of the ray two glamours of the love of being loved, of popularity, of personal wisdom, and of selfish responsibility. Some individuals responded to how these particular glamours have expressed in their lives. The meditation itself was on the glamour of domination. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 16, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 122, reading no. 62. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 120-121. Depression underlies a lot of the bombast seen in the dictators of the world and the enemies of democracy. The higher incoming energies can cause all kinds of glamourous reactions in the personality. We misunderstand what the energies are meant to do. The Science of the Rays, of Esoteric Astrology, of the Centers of Force, and the new Esoteric Psychology, all form the Science of the Psychological Influences. Each of these lines of study are yet in their infancy. This reading concerns the glamours of the first ray as named by the Tibetan. These glamours may display from the soul, personality, or mental levels based on one’s rayological structure. These tendencies may carry over from prior incarnation(s), astrologically, or the environment/nation of birth. Michael discussed the eleven named first ray glamours, giving examples to help describe how to recognize the glamours. These first ray glamours are about standing in the center, taking up too much space within your own field of consciousness, having your eyes more upon your personal self than upon any kind of larger picture which involves cooperation and unity, and de-emphasis of your own self-importance. In the words of Master Hilarion “Be not ambitious, but work as one who is ambitious”. The meditation itself was on the glamour of depression. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 9, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 121, reading no. 61. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 117-120. Michael stated that the Tibetan generally considers glamour as anything that inhibits the disciples’ contact and understanding with reality, including maya and illusion. There is a problem when the little self (personality) takes precedence over its field of consciousness. Michael briefly reviewed the five types of force through which we produce glamours. One’s ray quality determines the type of glamours to which one succumbs (ambient glamour) as well as those we most easily create. We must learn to distinguish between those glamours already existing to which one is attracted, and those which we create in using the bodies that are colored by ray qualities. Astrological energies may also play a part. The problem is complicated because the energies of the soul, personality, mind, emotions, and physical vehicles all contribute. One of the first steps in understanding the nature of our problems, and of our release from those problems, is learning our ray structure. The soul and personality rays are probably the major sources of our glamours. When one has hypothesized his/her ray structure, then one must consider the state of one’s glandular system, one’s point in evolution upon the Path, the points of cleavage in the personality which exist (within the physical/etheric, emotional, and mental bodies, or between any of them), and understanding one’s Path of Life through astrological indications (not compulsions). Ray Five rules the Law of Cleavages. Cleavages can be healed through meditation, and soul light and service. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personal domination over others. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 2, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 120, reading no. 60. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 116-117. Michael began by recapping the questions a struggling soul goes through, as Arjuna did, in the middle of the battle between the opposites (personality force and soul energy). As Master D.K. tells us: ”Only one clear fact remains and that is the fact of the Soul, of the immortal Identify, the Warrior behind the scenes, the Charioteer, Krishna, the Christ within. The Bhagavad Gita can be read entirely from the standpoint of the disciple’s combat with glamor and students would be well-advised so to study it.” Then Michael began a discussion on the 5 types of force that produce glamor within the man, initiated by the man himself. The forces of the dense physical nature produce a condition of maya or uncontrolled energy. The astral nature forces are the pairs of opposites that must be balanced; disciples are usually polarized in the astral body and subject to glamor due to the interplay of the opposites. The forces of the lower mental nature is colored by past activity, adding illusion to the states of maya and glamor of the physical and astral natures. The personality emerges and intensifies the other 3, eventually resulting in a synthesis, yet still subject to a more potent form of glamor. Then the Soul ray energy steadily increases it’s potency, seeking to impose its purpose and will on the personality, sweeping the man onto the Probationary Path. Michael fielded questions about the Angel of the Presence, and pointed out the table in Esoteric Astrology, p332-333 on the influence of the Zodiacal Signs on Undeveloped Man, Advanced Man, and Disciples. He also discussed the Words of Power as described in Rays and Initiations, p511-518. When used correctly, these words help to build and maintain the antahkarana and keep the channel clear for descending light from the Spiritual Triad. The meditation was on the glamor of self-love. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 26, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 119, reading no. 59. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 113-116. Michael briefly reviewed why glamours will slowly be dealt with, as most of humanity is still “Atlantean-minded”. Yet, the future is bright. The majority of humanity is generally focused in emotional selfish response, and unaware of a method of clearing the source of its bondage. In this program, we are looking specifically at glamours initiated by individuals. There are many glamours inherited from an earlier major solar system for which humanity has no control. We enter incarnation in a glamoured state. Note that these conditions offer the opportunity to understand the viewpoint of the soul, and through experience the soul gains control and a field of service. An avatar enters the world out of pure beneficence, whereas a soul needs a field of service. One cannot violate the freedom of those for which one is caring. When the soul identifies with the form rather than itself, it falls into the trap of maya, glamour, and illusion. With, or as, what are we identifying? So much of our freedom, or our imprisonment, is based on that as which we identify. When one has achieved some degree of actively functioning astral and mental forms, s/he becomes a manufacturer of glamour. The soul asks Itself a number of questions. One knows that the soul is working within oneself through a sense of responsibility that has been activated. The meditation itself was on the glamour of blind emotional reactivity. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 19, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 118, reading no. 58. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 110-113. Michael reviewed the spiral-cyclic nature of recognizing dualities and then resolving them through expressions of higher consciousness resulting in temporary unities. The freedom from the prison of the senses on the astral plane (glamour) is achieved by controlling the astral body by passing between the vertical pairs of opposites (relating to the second initiation). The control is not by suppression or repression. This is done by using the mind as a distributor of light, revealing the middle way, which dissipates glamour by its brilliance and radiance. Both the Tibetan and Bailey were horrified by glamour. The Atlantean type of consciousness is centered in the emotions. The mass of humanity today remains centered in this sentient (rather than sensory) consciousness. A statement of major importance is that “self-pity is one of the major glamours of the advanced and sensitive man.” Advanced people contribute the most to the world glamour. Truth lies beyond the world of feeling and can only be sensed in its purity when feeling is transcended and transmuted. The world is divided into three groups who are subject to certain phases of glamour: those Atlantean in their consciousness, those definitely Aryan (not the Nordic use of the term) in their consciousness, and those emerging from being subject to glamour and illusion and becoming alive to the voice of the soul. The meditation itself was on the glamour of materialism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 12, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 117, reading no. 57. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 109-110. Michael briefly reviewed why glamour first appeared in the Lemurian times. The Tibetan then continues with a history of glamour. During the Atlantean times of humanity, awareness began to emerge of the dualism between the physical nature and the astral plane, along with the “Voice of Conscience” expressing through the inner center, or soul. For glamour, the lower is over-emphasized at the expense of the higher, distracting attention from Reality. Note that even in the current root-race, there are many millions of people still expressing the Atlantean consciousness, and remain polarized in their astral bodies. The pairs of opposites can be described as “vertical” (value judgement) and/or “horizontal” (value judgement not necessary). Each racial stage establishes a temporary sense of unity when the previous cleavage is healed, followed by a growing recognition of choice as higher values emerge, and finally the conflict in consciousness as the higher duality is faced. The meditation itself was on the glamour of expansive egotism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 5, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 116, reading no. 56. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 103-108. Michael briefly reviewed the history of glamour in respect to the first five initiations, as was discussed in the last meeting. There are three groups of causes producing world glamour: Planetary, those begun by Humanity itself, and those begun by individuals themselves. The major Planetary causes, although beyond finite comprehension, include those within substance itself (that has been colored by the manifestation of an earlier solar system), and the nature of the Life of the Planetary Logos (among the “imperfect Gods”). All of our struggles are for the purpose of strengthening us for eventual liberation. Humanity has created and intensified the condition of consciousness we call the astral plane. Note the statement about how humanity has produced all its glamour—beginning in the Lemurian root-race. In that early stage, glamour only enveloped the more advanced people, but it developed very rapidly as humanity evolved emotionally and mentally. Summarizing, glamour results from the complexities of our constitution and the energies of our own soul. The meditation itself was on the glamour of the Pairs of Opposites. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 28, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 115, reading no. 55. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 103. Michael continued into the five stages involved in taking initiation. The stage for the first initiation requires resolving the dualities of the physical plane. This concerns transferring energies from the sacral center to the throat center. For the second initiation, one must learn to choose between the pairs of opposites on the astral plane by finding the “middle way”. For the third initiation, one can now use the intuition to perceive truth, and catches the first real glimpse of the Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of the Presence. The initiate of the fourth degree shows complete at-one-ment between the higher and the lower aspects of the Soul, and sees the Dweller merge into the Angel, demonstrating complete soul-infusion. At the fifth initiation, one sees the Dweller, the Angel, and the Presence merge into a divine synthesis. Michael also discussed the rays involved in the various initiations. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personality centralization. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 21, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 114, reading no. 54. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 101-103. Michael continued with the third stage in which glamour is encountered: learning to distinguish between truth and truths, knowledge and wisdom, reality and illusion. This leads to the third initiation, freeing the personality from the ancient authority of the Lunar Lords. The process develops the intuition as an infallible instrument for discernment and discrimination. One proceeds from the crises of duality to realizations of unity, which are based on the illusory sense of identification with that which is not the Self. One must rise above material identification. Three major capacities are developed as we proceed through these stages: 1) to handle force; 2) to tread the middle way between the pairs of opposites; and 3) use of the intuition (coming in more fully with the fourth degree). One then becomes aware of the Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of the Presence, and also begins to sense the Presence Itself. The meditation itself was on the glamour of selfishness. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 14, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 113, reading no. 53. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 99-101.  Michael touched on the first two stages in which glamour is encountered: 1) recognizing and valuing the material world, and 2) “the man and his forces”. These have been previously discussed in more detail. The third stage is called the “Arjuna Experience”, as each individual (and humanity itself) faces the pairs of opposites on the emotional plane, preparing to tread the Path of Discipleship. (Note the Tibetan’s instruction to battle). Most of humanity is struggling with the pairs of opposites on the physical plane prior to entering the Path of Purification. The average educated person faces the Arjuna experience which is subdivided into two classes: a) the phase of bewilderment, and b) the recognition of release from the pairs of opposites. The disciple is really the soul-in-incarnation. The meditation itself was on the glamour of cherishing personality values rather than the higher, more inclusive values of the soul. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 7, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 112, reading no. 52. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 98-99. Michael briefly reviewed several aspects of the first stage in extricating ourselves from glamour. The first stage is foundational in establishing the means of ridding ourselves of glamour. The Tibetan’s disciples DLR and DPR were placed in the group working with the dissipation of glamour due to their relative freedom from glamour, and were less prone to succumbing to it. The astrological and rayological information of these two disciples was presented. Both are identified as R1 souls and R5 personalities, but came into rapport with glamour in different ways. Venus is very important in overcoming our tendencies to glamour. We must look the energetic aspects that may put us in touch with astral reaction and misleading emotional response. The work of dissipating glamour can be best done by those who recognize it, and have struggled with it. Glamour is called a stupendous world problem. The meditation itself was on the glamour of egotism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on April 12, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 111, reading no. 51. The reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 96-98. Michael again reviewed that important statement regarding the primary cause of glamour being the sense of duality, the difficulties we face through our misidentification as our bodies, and the first of two stages of extricating ourselves from glamour. In the second stage, we become aware of the dualities between form and energy. Our initial duality is between the physical body and the etheric body. It is a stage of great difficulty for both individuals and humanity as a whole. Athletics and dancing (for instance) help to achieve control over the forces of impulsion. This initial conflict is fought out to the point of synthesis and at-one-ment of the physical and etheric forms, thus reorienting humanity to truer values and the world of reality. During this period, we experience movement, first onto the path of purification, then onto the path of discipleship. Our next battle is with the emotional pairs of opposites. The meditation itself was on the glamour of egotism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on April 5, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 110, reading no. 50. Michael reviewed an important statement regarding the primary cause of glamour being the sense of duality, and the difficulties we face through our misidentification as our bodies. Disillusionment is the release from glamour. We are in the process of developing unitive consciousness. This perception of the dual nature of all manifestation lies at the very root of all troubles humanity faces. This problem of consciousness creates our wrong perception and interpretation, leading to the misidentification whereby we are engulfed, deluded and imprisoned until we recognize the situation. Our emotions support unrealities. We are the story of the Prodigal Son. We then proceeded into the stages of extricating ourselves from glamour. The first stage occurs when the material world is recognized and realized—the glamour of materialism. This stage has two parts: first is the satisfaction of the physical instincts of the individualized man; and second concerns the pleasures of material possessions. The Tibetan has a wonderful coloristic description of the ascent of man, found in Discipleship of the New Age, Vol, I, p. 674, called The Sublimation of the Five Human Stages. The first two stages were discussed. The colors tell us where we stand. The meditation itself was on the glamour of hatred. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 29, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 109, reading no. 49. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 92-95. Completing the Section: Dweller on the Threshold the webinar began with a review of the most common rays for the physical, astral and mental vehicles found in humanity at this time, noting those exceptions found for a few of Master DK’s disciples in DINA Volumes I and II and some of the reasons DK noted the exceptions for particular disciples. If your rays are different from those noted as most common, then you may be an accepted disciple. Accepted discipleship is attained when you have a direct contact with the master. How has this been revealed? The group then considered a set of questions on page 93 each considered silently and followed by Michael’s comments: 1) When the intuition is developed, the impact or “straight knowledge” is seen and all is locked into step establishing a unity of all factors which dawns upon the consciousness. 2) Working with the Technique of Light reveals the glamours that are hiding the Light. The beam of Light eventually becomes the horn of the Unicorn. 3) The veils of the etheric plane are the forces or impulsions driving the human being until he can control the energies. Inspiration is a rhythmic breathing of divinity, breathing in the higher energies and releasing them, the rhythm works in cycles and impulses that are regulated. The 7th ray rhythmic breathing is very important in our efforts to not succumb to the chaos of maya. The rhythmic and ordered life helps restore our own energy system rather than being driven by chaotic impulse. The group continued with consideration of a new section – Causes of Glamour, Section Two: The racial and individual causes of glamour. Familiarity leads to the inability to see the distortions in which we are living for both maya and illusion as well as glamour. Illusions, misunderstandings and misinterpretations continue until emotional unity is achieved on the way to the experience of Oneness which is found in monadic awareness. The discontinuity, disillusionment, distortions are dispelled through the use of the intuition. Unsentimental love / Love-wisdom prevents the appearance of distortions and disillusionment. As occultists in training with detachment, we overcome illusions and actually achieve Disillusionment as Master DK uses the term, as the key to the release from glamour. The fundamental cause of glamour is the sense of duality. Unity is achieved in contemplation and the heart centre is involved, allowing the fusion of the subject and the object. Oneness goes even deeper though. Yet words are used loosely and we must take care not to further our misunderstandings. We on this planet are adjudicators; we always must reconcile the dualities, the great mistake of misperception, through contemplative meditation. Our very perceptions are rooted in our dweller in the body, in duality, incorrectly perceiving, wrongly seeing the phenomena that engulf and delude, causing restlessness and unhappiness. Do we actually know this experientially? Self-knowledge is the first step and leads us through a long period of untangling before glamour can be overcome. The webinar closed with the Formula for the Dissipation of the glamour of selfishness. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 22, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 108, reading no. 48. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 90-92. This new section begins a discussion on the Dweller on the Threshold. The number 108 is significant in several ways. Not all of us are currently fighting with the real Dweller, as it is faced by the third degree initiate. This is the Dweller standing open-eyed before the gate facing the Angel. Being ‘open-eyed’ involves being fully self-aware. There are several very good definitions provided for this aspect of our evolving Self. The Dweller is everything we are before real illumination, inspiration, and initiation (soul infusion), and is extremely potent. From the form side, the Dweller on the Threshold embodies many good and useful things, when properly directed. We are learning to subordinate the Third Aspect to the Second Aspect of divinity. We are just at the stage or recognizing what is the dweller in our nature, so that we can strive to resolve the pairs of opposites on the physical, emotional, and mental planes. Each of these pairs of opposites occur on different paths—purification, discipleship, and initiation. On which path are our struggles or crises occurring? In studying our rays, it is important to look at the effect we have on other people. The meditation itself was on the glamour of self-assured narrow-mindedness. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 15, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 107, reading no. 47. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 88-90. This reading completes the section on Maya. Michael reviewed the last paragraph of last week’s reading. Transmutation has to do with the physical nature, transformation with the emotional nature, and transfiguration with the mental nature. Also, Ray 1 relates to destruction, Ray 2 to purification, and Ray 3 to organization. In World War I, the conflict that was fought concerned the physical/etheric nature, and was a tremendous test and discipline. Due to this conflict, many humans entered the Probationary Path. It brought out discipline, aspiration, and a higher sense of values. Something of the fifth kingdom of nature was coming through. The effects were important in devitalizing the world maya. Interestingly, wars have been expiating (releasing and then negating) experiences for humanity. Focusing on physical disciplines and training is related to this Path, as is purification. One of the first steps in handling maya is physical coordination which, as a “right activity” on the Path of Return, also includes astral orientation, mental direction, and personality alignment. The Tibetan points to the value of memorization. The meditation itself was on the glamour of self-importance. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 8, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 106, reading no. 46. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 85-88. Michael suggests continuing study every day, at least for an hour. The glamour of egotism is one of the most difficult and is based on mistaken identity, and a mistaken self-glorification. Maya is largely an etheric condition in a battle of the pairs of opposites. There are many levels of these pairs of opposites. Michael showed, on the chart of the Egoic Lotus and the Centers, how pairs of opposites may be observed. The Tibetan considers the etheric body as the true physical, while the dense body is an automaton. Latent impulses of the personality life (not under soul control) are blended with pranic fluids, becoming potent streams of force emerging through the chakras into manifestation. We draw in the general environing prana until there is definite direction and higher control. Note that there are five types of prana. Etheric energy passes through two stages prior to the period of discipleship. Stage One blends the latent force of matter with etheric energy through physical discipline. Stage Two is the battle of the lower pairs of opposites, as one reorients towards higher values, expresses as the conflict between the vital force and the dense physical body, and is fought out in the astral nature. The meditation itself was on the glamour of egotism and self-importance. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 1, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 105, reading no. 45. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 84-85. Michael began the section “Glamour upon Etheric Levels…Maya”. Maya is also called “that unthinking emotional mess” and “the veil of impulsion”. An “old commentary” piece from Esoteric Astrology, page 20, describes that “mess” and indicates a means for its overcoming. Maya is only experienced when one has entered the spiritual Path, and is especially pertinent to the first degree. During the early stages of human evolution, it is not possible to recognize it. The forces against which we are struggling are extremely ancient, and are predominately a difficulty of the etheric body. These mayavic forces are the uncontrolled energies and undirected impulses emanating from the world of prana and the latent force of matter. One is helpless when swept into its wrong activity and a whirlpool of effects and conditions. We see this in mass consciousness, the maya of the crowd. We are being deceived about the nature of Reality due to Maya, Glamour, and Illusion. Our means to freedom is the Intuition (dispelling illusion), Illumination (dissipating glamour), and Inspiration (dispersing maya). The meditation itself was on the glamour of narcissism (and its expressions of self-love, self-obsession, lower egoism and egotism). The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on February 22, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 104, reading no. 44. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 81-84. Intuition is latent in the Spiritual Triad, and is found on the fourth subplane of the Buddhic plane. It expresses as pure reason and straight knowledge. For an initiate, the intuition is as normally active as the mind of an actively intelligent person. It is also called the Transcendental Mind. Criticism, separativeness or pride, suspicion, and self-pity are definite breeders of glamour. Freeing oneself from these three characteristics shows one is well on the way to the dissipation of all glamour. Glamour keeps one from seeing things in right proportion. Illusion is dispelled through the conscious use of the intuition, thereby coming in touch with Reality in all forms. Disidentification is a way to find this reality. The right kind of insulation and isolation (Isolated Unity) leads to right contact and relationship with the Real. We must deal with the problem of glamour through analysis, discrimination, and right thought. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personality. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on February 15, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 103, reading no. 43. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 80-81. This reading completed the fifth of the five glamours holding humanity in prison—that of the Path. We can learn the nature of these glamours by studying the three temptations faced by Jesus (or the Christ): the world, the flesh, and the devil. The glamours are all based on misidentification with the form, and are displayed through a number of self-expressions. We are reminded that suspicion, self-pity, and criticism (that dire producer of misery) are major causes of glamour. The battles that disciples face are primarily of glamour. Illumination can be achieved through Raja Yoga. With this light and vision, the fogs and miasmas of glamour is dissipated. We must remember that “glamour is not dissipated through the means of the intuition nor is illusion overcome by the use of the illumined mind”. The meditation itself was on the glamour of war. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on February 8, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 102, reading no. 42. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 79-80. This reading focused on the fourth of five glamours holding humanity in prison—that of the pairs of opposites. The reference to the “middle way” is to the vertical path (Libra) which is always rising as the point of tension continues to rise. The astral body is prominent due to our living in an astral-buddhic solar system, and so affects all. As we travel along this path, we must realize that our emotional “ups and downs” are not of the soul at all. On the “mystical path”, one may be held by this particular glamour for many years, or even lives. When speaking of the “polarized mind”, it relates to a period between the second and third degrees. It is also important to realize that the triplicity of the three aspects of divinity—spirit, soul, and body—are all equally divine, all the product of BEING. The meditation itself was on the general engulfing glamour. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on February 1, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 101, reading no. 41. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 77-79. The focus of this reading was on the third of five glamours holding humanity in prison—that of devotion. This is especially powerful in the lives of probationary disciples and those with Ray 6 souls, personalities, or emotional natures. This is due to the long Ray 6 cycle now completing, as well as the ending Piscean cycles—a double reinforcement. We are told to ponder on our devotion to causes, teachers, creeds, persons, duties, and/or responsibilities. It becomes harmful when it swings one into the rhythm of the world glamour, which is a fog of desire (which initially may appear quite beautiful). This type of devotional glamour can be particularly difficult, commencing a long imprisonment. One way to overcome this glamour is by contacting the greater Self through the higher Self, thus losing sight of the lower self. The meditation itself was on the glamour of devotion. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on January 25, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 100, reading no. 40. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 76-77. Michael discussed the second of the five glamours holding humanity in prison, being that of sentiment. This expresses as an emotional reaction, creating a sentimental understanding of the nature of love. For most people, love is a mixture of the desire to love and to be loved. Through sentiment, one seeks comfort in the interior life. Few there are that truly know the nature of love, particularly in family relationships. Affection is an astral reaction and not love. One definition for love is “the spontaneous desirelessness of the soul which asks nothing for the separated self”. The true lover must be very alert to the needs of the other. Michael read the definition for sentiment found on page 209 of The Rays and The Initiations. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personality. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on January 18, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 99, reading no. 39. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 74-76. Michael began discussing the first of the five glamours holding humanity in prison. The first is the glamour of materiality. It causes all of the present world distress, particularly with so much of the glamour having an economic basis. It is a problem of a dull perception, leading one to grasp at false treasures and values. We must learn to understand what is truly of value—that found within the soul. We must also keep in mind that not all types of possessions suit all people, as this relates to one’s place on the evolutionary ladder. The desire nature of humanity is changing as new standards for values are realized. Freedom from this glamour results in the liberation to live the life of the mind. The meditation itself was on the glamour of materialism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on January 11, 2019.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 98, reading no. 38. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 72-73. Michael discussed the second, third, and fourth recognitions that one must understand when working with glamour. The second concerns the fog enveloping humanity is a definite substantial thing, although the astral forms created are less clearly defined than those created in mental substance. Generally undetectable by most people, the astral forms are described as smothering, vague, enveloping, submerging and swaying. The third recognition is that the great energetic potency of glamour is due to a) it’s an ancient rhythm inherent in astral substance that has been created by human desire; b) it’s part of the human energy system that is part of life processes; c) it is Atlantean in nature and consciousness, being highly developed during that period, and can only be dissipated by the fifth root-race through the technique of 1) standing in spiritual being and 2) keeping the mind steady in the light. The fourth recognition is that the major glamours holding humanity in the prison of form are those of materiality, sentiment, devotion, the pairs of opposites, and the Path. These will be more fully described in a future meeting. The meditation itself was on the glamour of selfishness. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on December 14, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 97, reading no. 37. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 70-72. The Astral Plane is the major area of distortions in which humanity lives. Michael began discussing the four recognitions that must be understood by those working with glamour. The first being the world of glamours in which each human being is engulfed results from a) past wrong thinking, selfish desires, and misunderstanding the purposes of life; b) the past and present family “desire life” that shows inherited and/or demonstrated psychological tendencies; c) the totality of national desire life and illusions, showing the national characteristics and psychological traits; and d) the ancient glamours of the human race, including entrenched desires, potent aspirations, and kama-manasic forms such as money with only materialistic value. The meditation itself was on the glamour of lying. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on December 7, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 96, reading no. 36. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 69-70. Michael began reading the section specific to glamour on the astral plane. Sometimes illusion, glamour, and maya are used in a general sense, with each referring to the totality of distortions on the lower eighteen subplanes. In this period, humanity is primarily affected by emotional glamour. Michael suggests that the accepted discovery of Vulcan will facilitate release from glamour. Accepted disciples battle with both glamour and illusion. As we move into this phase of our training, are we strong enough to deal with both distortions? Both Mercury and Saturn play a role in this. Integration of personality and soul energies is consummated significantly at the third degree. Take note about what our “best self” might be. Discrimination is a psychic power found on the fourth level of the mental plane. What choice of a life theme is appropriate for this incarnation? Be aware of the choice(s) we have made. The astral body of the planet is a murky ball of seeming steam, mist, and fog. The meditation itself was on the glamour of selfishness. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on November 30, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 95, reading no. 35. Reading was from Glamour: A World Problem pages 67-68. Michael reminded us that we need to work on dissipating our own personal glamours. This reading ends the section in the book on illusion. Contemplation dispels illusion as we slip into the soul’s meditation. There are three major divisions of the meditation process to address the distortions of reality: concentration by the Aspirant relates to devitalizing maya (ruled by Leo), meditation by the Disciple relates to dissipating glamour (ruled by Virgo), and contemplation by the Initiate relates to dispelling illusion (ruled by Libra). The state of contemplation is largely unreachable for most of us. Libra is the sign of humility (an adjusted sense of right proportion) and contemplation. Our major problem is glamour rather than illusion. As we develop our minds, we must distinguish between mental focus and mental polarization. To be most effective in our work of helping humanity, we must carefully assess our motives – are they for the separated personality, or for the larger group – humanity itself. The meditation itself was on the glamour of selfish combat for the sake of personal advantage. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on November 16, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 94, reading no. 34. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 65-67. Michael stated that we are not entirely free from glamour and illusion until we take the 9th initiation and are free of the cosmic physical plane. Following a brief alignment, Michael discussed how the intuition is increasingly necessary in the dispelling of illusion. It is the intuition that dispels illusion (Technique of the Presence), the illumined mind that dissipates glamour (Technique of Light), and the right use of the breath that devitalizes maya (Technique of Indifference). The concrete mind is not enough to do this work. This indicates the need for building the antahkarana in order to access the intuition. Note how the transcendental mind, being the intuition (or pure realization), is governed by the higher part of Mercury. Michael discussed the relationships between Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. The opposite pole of illusion is the intuition – the recognition of reality that becomes possible as glamour and illusion disappear. The mind reflects the soul on the higher mental plane and the astral body reflects the intuition on the buddhic plane. We bring in buddhic impression through the use of Raja Yoga, stillness, and non-activity of the mind in a way that will reveal something closer to pure truth. The meditation itself was on the glamour of rulership, of dictatorship, and of wide control. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on Nov 9, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 93, reading no. 33. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 63-66. Michael began discussing the wrong embodiment of ideas; this is illusion through wrong discrimination where substance is concerned.  The cause is lack of esoteric training in creative activity and the cure is application of 5th ray methods, which are highly discriminative methods of the mental plane.   Michael also discussed wrong application of ideas, where a disciple might contact an idea intuitively, but the full impression has not fully worked through the mind.  This can sweep the disciple into wrong activity and wrong application of ideas.  The meditation itself was on the glamour of blatant lying and manipulation. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on Nov 2, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 92, reading no. 32. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 62-63. Michael discussed the 4th and 5th ways that illusion demonstrates, through wrong direction of ideas (introducing an idea into a context in which it does not belong) and wrong integration of an idea (contacting ideas that do not integrate into our personal field of service). In the first case, there might be some value to the ideas, but when they are misapplied, presented incorrectly or in the wrong context, illusion is strengthened.  The cause is a small and non-inclusive mind, and its cure is the training of the mind to be inclusive, well-stocked and well-developed.  In the second case, overzealousness and over-activity of the mind cause the person to seize upon an idea and try and work with, even if they don’t have the aptitude or understanding to do so.  Not all ideas contacted will fit in with the person’s field of service, and they need to discern which are appropriate and which are not.  Many good disciples demonstrate this over-zealousness and end up with no constructive objectives because they reach for too many that are inappropriate for their designated work and cannot be integrated into their life program.  This is illusion through acquisitiveness and its cause is selfishly grasping for the little self; the cure is a humble spirit.  The meditation itself was on the glamour of lying and everything that prevents truth from manifesting. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on October 26, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 91, reading no. 31. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 60-62. Michael quickly reviewed the first two of seven ways in which illusion usually demonstrates. The focus of this webinar was the third way, which is through wrong appropriation of ideas. All the problems of the world consist in the words “me” and “mine”. Taking ownership of ideas is an unjustified action of the personality. The “my” part becomes more important than the idea itself. This lower Leo phase of development needs the corrective action of Libra. The cause of this illusion is an over-estimation of personality upon the sensed idea and undue impress of personality reactions upon the sensed idea and upon all who attempt to contact the same idea. The cure for this illusion is a steady attempt to decentralize the life from the personality, and to center it in the soul which is non-possessive and group conscious. Consider the effects in one’s life of discipline, dispassion, discrimination, decentralization, detachment, and discernment. This was followed by a general summary of the first three ways in which illusion usually demonstrates. Intuition is also called the “transcendental mind”. The meditation itself was on the glamour of the divine right of kings and of leaders. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on October 19, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 90. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 59-60.  Michael began reviewing the first illusion, wrong perception of an idea and reiterating the great heresy of separateness, or the inability to perceive the unity of things.  A separative consciousness does not act in the interest of the whole.  Then he began discussing the second of the seven ways that illusion demonstrates:  wrong interpretation of a presented idea.  When our mental equipment is inadequate, and we are not able to hold the mind steady in the Light of the Soul, we receive only partial views of reality. The cause of this illusion is the over-estimation of one’s mental powers, resulting in a prideful attitude toward one’s mind. This condition may be especially prominent in ray types three and five. The cure for this illusion is developing a cautious spirit; Saturn and Ray 3 are helpful,  with true humility, balance, and an adjusted sense of right proportion.  We paused in meditation to consider our own status, to reflect on whether we indulged in overinflated mental pride (or undervalued one) and whether or not we were developing that cautious spirit.  He pointed out that the humble spirit expressed itself in our ability to talk to others and help them understand esoteric concepts.  Michael also pointed out the list of virtues and vices of the rays found in Esoteric Psychology Vol I beginning on page 200.  Then he answered several questions, including one on how to distinguish between an idea, a law, and a principle.  A Law is always true and is a formulated, sustained will of a great being; the law protects the archetype of the being.  A principle is an aspect of that being; A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, beginning on p259 lists all the principles from different levels of consciousness and explains the different ways of looking at these principles depending on our conscious status or point of view.  Another question was on the distinction between an idea, ideal, and thoughtform.  Ideas are archetypes that need to be manifested on the lower planes, and they come from the buddhic plane or higher.  Ideals are formed in the concrete mind and astral vehicle, and they give form to the perceived idea.  Thoughtforms are forms, but are abstract, leaving out the details, and are formed on the higher mental plane, so they still need to be brought down into the concrete mind and the 18 lower sub-planes.  In other words, the intuition perceives the idea, clothes it in abstract thought, and then in concrete form.  The meditation was on the glamor of the personality and things that prevent true perception of reality, like self-importance.  The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on 12 October 2018.   The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 89, reading no. 29. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 57-59. Michael began by reviewing a few of the points covered in the previous reading. The current reading begins the seven ways in which illusion usually demonstrates, which are not necessarily related to the seven rays. We reviewed a definition of “ideas”, as they come from the cosmic ethers demonstrating as archetypes, and not just from the buddhic plane. We all dwell in an atmosphere of illusion. We studied in depth the first of the seven ways that illusion demonstrates, that of wrong perceptions of ideas. We pondered upon the difference between an idea and an ideal. The cause of wrong perception is an untrained and unillumined mind. The cure for this condition is training in the technique of Raja Yoga. There are four books that the Tibetan strongly recommends be a part of a disciple’s library and study. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personalism. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on October 5, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 88. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 53-57. Michael began discussing Illusion (glamor on the mental plane).  We don’t meet illusion (and can’t therefore overcome it) until we become the thinker.  The man must be focused consciously on the mental plane (generally, people are not yet mentally focused); working with intelligent, heart-felt service; able to make soul alignment easily; and have taken the first initiation, when it becomes possible for the mind to be held steadily in the Light.  True ideas come forth from the Buddhic plane, formless impressions until the higher mind interprets them and clothes them in mental substance.  This is where distortion comes in, especially for beginners, and ideas are misinterpreted as they are processed from the soul to the brain.  They can be built with inferior material from an inadequate mind, or colored through the ray types of the vehicles of expression (soul, mental, or physical brain), creating illusion and distortion of the pure idea by the qualifying equipment of the interpreter.  DK tells us that illusion, for our purposes, can be understood to signify the reaction of the undisciplined mind to the newly contacted world of ideas.  The mind of man becomes aware of this new and undiscovered world of ideas and he seizes upon some idea and tries to make it his own.   But his mind is still self-centered and the contact feeble, so the ideas are only dimly sensed.  Thinking the experience is unique or that he’s contacted a great idea leads him further into illusion, when all he’s gotten is a small fragment of a much greater idea.  So what he attempts to materialize is inaccurate and unsuitable.  Many factors contribute to this problem including the point in evolution of the man (i.e., imperfect integration of the personality, indefiniteness of the thoughtform, wrong material attracted for building the thoughtform, a shifting focus due to the dimness of the ideal, and an unstable relationship between the senses idea and the mind).  The meditation was on the glamor of the personality.  The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on 28 Sep 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 87, reading no. 27. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 51-53. Michael led us through a discussion of the glamour of authority and the illusion of power. The illusion of power is generally a mental condition and a misperception or “great mistake”, but it can descend to the astral plane becoming blinding. We must be aware of our susceptibility to these conditions, as it is rare for any disciple to escape the effects of these errors. Success and right motive can actually attract this false sense of power. When we begin to sense soul contact, through meditation, good intentions, and right techniques, our inner powers begin to express. Integration is power. Our personalities strive to claim these inner powers for themselves, and we can lose all sense of proportion, expressing spiritual self-importance. The personality can “spoil” the service and light of the soul. Those having taken the first and second initiations are especially prone to these glamours. Michael suggested that we all search within ourselves for these particular glamours, asking if we have succeeded in being clear channels for expressing light and love. The meditation itself was on the glamour of personality. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on September 21, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 86. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” page 51. Michael led us into a presentation and discussion of the last three Rules of the Road. The rules are offered in symbolic language. We must remember that the Pilgrim referenced in these rules is our true SELF, the Monad as the Soul in incarnation traveling this path. Interpretations were provided of the symbols of Rule IV concerning wearing a hood, carrying a water pot, and carrying a staff without a crook; we need to be open and honest with our fellow travelers along the path, be willing to share, and when needed become the Good Shepherd with those who might lose their way.  Symbols of Rule V include the pot of fire, the lamp, the purse of gold, and the sealed vase; they represent solar fire, fellowship and kindness and that of setting an example by letting others see into our vulnerabilities and true heart.  The sealed vase is for our aspirations, and Michael reminded us of the four ancient veils (that of impulsion, distortion, separation, and aspiration) as described in Rays and Initiations page 196.  Symbols of Rule VI were the open ear (truly listen), the giving hand (service is never a delay in our own path), the silent tongue (gossip and criticism have no place in group work), the chastened heart (only the soul desires count and the more soul-centered we are the less we attract any unwanted lower desires), the golden voice (words of the soul and speaking to restore people to their soul), the rapid foot (being alert and ready to go where the Hierarchy needs us), and the open eye (the light of the soul).  It ends with he knows he is not alone because soul work is group work and that involves group travel, group initiation, and group consciousness.  Michael again suggested the importance of not only memorizing these rules, but of making each of them a part of our daily life. The meditation itself was on the Rules of the Road, thinking about the condition of the Astral Plane, and clearing out glamorous conditions. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on September 14, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 85. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 50-51. Michael led us into a presentation of the first three Rules of the Road. The rules are somewhat symbolic but also practical. Six rules are given because it is the number of form and has a direct relation with the astral plane. This road is an energy stream/life thread we have carried with us from the beginning. We should consider ourselves as average aspirants subject to the distinguishing characteristics listed. As we tread this path with others, our attitude about time must be adjusted. We must move forward together without wasting energy. Traveling alone may result in a glamour of isolation. Humility is needed. Michael suggests the importance of memorizing these rules. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour was adapted as a meditation on the glamour of disobeying these Rules assuming the group perspective meditating on the first three Rules and viewing humanity as the Pilgrim: We travel not alone moving together despite our limitations and press forward. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on September 7, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 84. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 48-50.  Michael discussed entering into group work and the group rhythm that obeys the laws of the spiritual realm.  There is a set rule of interplay, of travel, of group recognition and work of the New Group of World Servers, and as we learn to work within this, like with Full Moon or New Moon meditations, the techniques penetrate our consciousness and we automatically begin to obey the higher rhythm, eventually entering the silent places where the Masters dwell within the cosmic ethers and the realm of the Spiritual Triad.  Along this road, we revolt from the control and fall back into the glamor of needing freedom, but while we may gain freedom from the control of the personality we must recognize there is never any freedom from the Law of Service.  To stand really free is to stand in the unimpeded light of the soul, and that is intrinsically group consciousness.  From the time we can focus on the higher mental plane, group consciousness takes over, giving way eventually to the Consciousness of the Oneness.  Michael pointed out what it says in Rays and Initiations, p685-686 about looking at the initiations from the angle of liberation and attainment of freedom (freedom from control of the physical body at the 1st Initiation, freedom from control of the emotional nature at the 2nd Initiation, freedom from the 3-fold personality at the 3rd Initiation, etc.).  DK reminds us that when we are beset by uncertainty and a desire to walk free, that we need to make sure we aren’t submitting to the glamor to be freed from our group impacts.  Does our own interior satisfaction, he asks us, warrant sacrificing the group integrity?  Michael pointed out the 4 factors of occult obedience from A Treatise on White Magic, p583 (enquire the way, obey the inward impulses of the soul, pay no attention to any worldly consideration, and live a life which is an example to others). And he finished up the reading with information that the authority to which the teachers on the inner side respond is twofold: the slowly emerging realization of the “light beyond,” and the authority of the Rules of the Road.  The meditation itself concerned lying, distorting truth, and hiding truth from ourselves and others. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 31, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 83. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 43-48. Michael discussed how we need to discover where each of us stand in terms of glamour and illusion, and hence our next steps forward. By dissipating our own glamours, we help those following in our footsteps. Libra is very important to help us break free from clinging to unrealities we may attach to ideals, thereby adjusting our sense of proportion. Venus, its traditional ruler, brings in the light of the Ray 5 mind that is used in the Technique of Light for the dissipation of glamour. Kama-manas, or desire-mind, is rampant in the world today, resulting in the glamours of lying and misrepresentation. This mass glamour of authority is giving rise to Nazism and other forms of totalitarianism as ideals, for which it is essential that we avoid. The greatest sources of glamour are self-pity, criticism, suspicion, and especially FEAR. Illusion can be like a wall-builder of separativeness, preventing us from seeing the reality of unity and oneness in the diversity of manifestation. We must guard against falling under the spell of the false teacher (Busiris in the Gemini myth in the Labors of Hercules) that would control our thoughts and emotions. We accomplish this through a blend of self-reliance and group work. Note that even the soul ray can be distorted by the personality. The meditation itself concerned lying and misrepresenting the truth. The term that Michael was searching for during this webinar to describe that imposition of the glamour of Authority is: TOTALITARIAN. The group used the Formula for the Dissipation of the Glamour of Lying and Misrepresentation of the Truth. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 24, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 82. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 42-43.  Michael discussed that the average man works with forces of life on the 3 planes of human endeavor (the 18 lower sub-planes) plus the principle of life. The disciple begins to discriminate between forces and energy and begins to work with soul energy, and not just theorize about it.  And the initiate works with energy and learns to distinguish between the energy of life, energies of the soul, and the forces of the phenomenal world.  The nature of these forces and energies and their use and control must be worked out in full consciousness—theory must become fact. Through alignment the intuition is evoked and the inner activity becomes a practical part of the disciple’s life (the Technique of the Presence) and is used as a great dispelling agency.  Through alignment, the energy of the soul is evoked and awakened (the Technique of Light) and used as a great dissipating agency, carrying illumination. These 2 types of spiritual energy work differently upon forces of the personality and have to be realized in the brain consciousness as the disciple works upon the physical plane.  Only then can the light of intuition and light of the soul return to the astral plane through the conscious effort and dynamic intelligent will of the serving disciple.  Master DK tells us to “Ponder on these points for they outline your way and your service . . . .” The meditation itself concerned lying and untruth. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 3, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 81. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 38-41.  Michael began with a recapitulation of the subject of glamor, and how the analytical mind has to differentiate the distinctive phases of illusion, glamor, and maya, plus the Dweller on the Threshold.  Maya arose in Lemurian days, but there was no real glamor or illusion then; Maya is found on the Etheric Plane and the objective is to devitalize it.  Glamor arose in early Atlantean times and is found on the Astral Plane; the object is to dissipate it through meditation and holding the mind steady in the light.  Illusion arose among advanced human beings in later Atlantean days and will be the controlling factor in our Aryan race; it is found on the Mental Plane and the objective is to dispel it through contemplation of the Soul.  The Dweller on the Threshold is the physical brain consciousness of duality, with the Angel of the Presence as it’s opposite, and discrimination of the integrated personality and realization of at-one-ment end the duality.   although illusion doesn’t fully play its part and the Dweller is seldom realized until the 3rd Initiation. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on August 3, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 80. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 37-38.  The adjusted sense of right proportion of Libra allows the aspirant to see things the way they are. This along with alignment, soul contact and steadfastness are foundational to success in becoming a pure channel for the energy of the soul. Groups can be established all around the world to work on the dissipation of glamour yet must be ever vigilant to counter the ‘inevitable’ problem when the individual glamours ‘unite’ and create an opening for group glamour to enter in. Both L.T.S-K who financed the publishing of the books and I.B.S. had strong 6th Ray producing powerful glamours countered by the love energy of the group of trained observers. D.K. sets out the guide for this group and future groups to use. The group members must learn to identify the glamours before being engulfed in them.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 79. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 36-37.  Michael began with a recap of where we left off last week, discussing the experimental group of the DINA disciples, and how only that which is experimentally known becomes a true content of the equipment of the disciple.  DK discusses illusion as pre-eminently the result of the misinterpretation of ideas, but that the time is not yet right to deal with world illusion.  However, it is time to take the first steps in dissipating glamour, and hence the training of esoteric groups to enable them to plan a concerted attack on world glamour. Techniques for doing so are for the disciple to align with the soul and act purely as a channel for the energy of the soul; this pours light down and irradiates the mind and brain consciousness.  Alignment, contact with his soul, and steadfastness are the keynotes to success.  The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 20, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 78. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 35-36.  Michael started with a discussion about individuals and group learning the meaning of true self-knowledge so they could truly stand in spiritual being, free from glamour and illusion. Part of the Plan of Hierarchy involves starting small groups like the DINA Glamour group for providing the active means so world glamour could be dissipated.  DK talked about 4 members of the group fighting glamour in their individual lives, and how in an experimental group as theirs, wrestling with glamour will naturally occur because only what is experimentally known becomes a true content of the the equipment of the disciple.  DK tells the disciples to wrestle with their personal problems so they will gain facility in discernment, in clear, precise action, and in strengthened understanding. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 13, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 77. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 33-35.  Michael discussed how maya is the result of both glamour and illusion, and connotes an integrated personality and the capacity to tune in on mental illusion and astral glamour because maya is the intense activity produced when both glamour and illusion are realized on etheric levels.  Master DK describes it as “that vital unthinking emotional MESS in which the majority of human beings seem always to live.”  What constitutes the prime difficulty of any disciple is the fact that the battleground of his life involves every aspect of his nature–the whole man is involved.  Disciples are advised to watch themselves in their daily life with discrimination to distinguish between glamour, illusion, and maya.  The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on July 6, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 76. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 31-33. Michael continued to expand on the subject of illusion in relation to Master DK’s teachings, in particular the condition in which the aspirant is being controlled by potent thoughtforms that impact the life of the aspirant and tune in to mass thoughtforms of a similar nature. If the man is highly developed, the mental illusion can be built around intuition, yet the concrete mind can build an illusion that seems to be strong and clear to the person. These then have significant consequences for the masses of men. The problems with this type of illusion relate particularly to the period between the 2nd and 3rd initiations when the aspirant can “walk ever in a fog deceived by appearance.” We create and attract distortions that the Master can see. As human beings we are more likely to feel rather than see the distortions. Old mindsets must be released with the first step being recognition and following that recognition of the glamour and illusion with the development of the will-to-do. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour was used in relation to the Glamour of the Personality. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 75. Reading was from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 29-31. Michael discussed how strong mental types are subject to illusion, a condition where an aspirant is being controlled by potent thoughtforms that control the life of the aspirant and tune in to mass thoughtforms of a similar nature. If the man is highly developed, the mental illusion can be built around intuition, yet the concrete mind can build an illusion that seems to be strong and clear to the person. Other people with a more average mental development succumb to general illusion of a mass nature. These sharply indicated thoughtforms mingle with similar thoughtforms, and become channels for drawing more powerful thoughtforms. Examples of this are ancient theologies in modern garb, fixed presentations of half-truths, and exaggerated thinking of various world groups—all of which contribute to wrong concepts and thoughts. What is needed instead is people who are independent thinkers who train themselves in mental attitudes, receptivity, and response. They need to be the observer, the Soul, and it is their responsibility to become mediating interpreters of right ideas. They must dissolve, shatter, and transform illusion to limit these dogmatic thoughtforms and prepare the heart and mind for the reappearance of the Christ. The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour was used in relation to the Glamour of the Personality. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 74. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 24-29. Michael reviewed the problems for the group to work on: 1) distinguishing among maya, glamor, and illusion; 2) discovering what condition(s) induce glamor; and 3) finding out what methods are effective in ceasing bewildering or deceiving conditions. He noted each individual is responsible for addressing these problems and must learn to deal with them as an individual and as a group. Michael emphasized the importance of the 5th Ray and certain planetary influences, Venus and Mercury, in dealing with glamour. He read the lists of glamours associated with each Ray (GWP pages 120-123). Michael discussed 3 things that must be remembered: the united auras of the group determine the group’s activity and usefulness as well as the glamours of the group; each person must determine their own problem and deal with the glamours with due care, caution and right understanding; and the group must be a group of positive auras “deliberately subordinated to group work.” With continuous concerted effort, the “light that is within will shine forth with greater clarity.” The Formula for the Dissipation of Glamour was used in relation to the Glamour of the Personality. The next webinar in this series will be on June 22nd, 5 pm GMT. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 15, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 73. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 24-27. Michael continued his discussion on the Dweller on the Threshold, and discussed the 3 things Master DK outlined to his disciples: 1) define their understanding of the destruction of the dweller, devitalizing general maya, dissipating glamor, and dispelling illusion; 2) saying daily the Lord’s Prayer; and 3) participating in and keeping a record of Full Moon meditations. This enables the disciple to go forward into greater light upon the Vertical Way. After a review of the definitions of Illusion, Glamor, and Maya, the session ended with 3 more things Master DK identified as problems for the group to work on: 1) distinguishing between maya, glamor, and illusion; 2) discovering what condition(s) induce glamor; and 3) finding out what methods are effective in ceasing bewildering or deceiving conditions. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on June 8, 2018.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 72. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 22-24. The Dweller on the Threshold was discussed and the integrated combination of maya, glamor, and illusion all working together, created over many lifetimes. Our virtues can conceal our vices from us and over time can hold us back from further advancement. We must lay that well-developed personality at the altar of the Soul. Then later the Soul must be renounced for a still higher aspect, the Monad. We’re always giving way to something higher, as even the Monad must eventually be relinquished. Further reading discussed that the dissipation of much of the glamor that mankind is immersed in will largely disappear during the coming Aquarian Age. Through meditation, the thinkers of the world will begin to rid the world of this illusion. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins.

Dissipation of Glamour Initiative webinar 71. Readings from “Glamour: A World Problem” pages 19-22. The glamors of pride and egotism were discussed, and how the Black Lodge attempts to hoodwink well-meaning aspirants with untruths that are fueled by illusion on the mental plane (manas) and desire on the astral plane (kama) that create glamour. When both combine on the etheric levels, DK tells us it creates a vital unthinking emotional mess (kama-manas) that fails to separate the two and because they occur simultaneously, they corrupt each other. The webinar was led by Michael D. Robbins, with Olivia Hansen and Tuija Robbins. This meeting was held on March 23, 2018.
