The practice glamour, which is the name for systematic charm work, is looking at the world as an ongoing dialogue. Charm work includes anything that seeks to deal with memory or past influences, but it is not linked to the past. It is linked to ends. Purposes. Charm is a state or trait of having purpose.
There is pattern to every course of events. The cycles of nature happen reliably enough that for all practical purposes we can count on them. Everything in our world calls out to everything else. The message is a charm. A sharing and a persuasion to allow them as beings to unfold in this world.
Glamour is seeing charm in context. There is no single practice that is a charm, no single mantra or special fetish that is the one thing you need. Each act you do in a day is a statement you are making to a world.
“Charm is more than just beauty.” Proverb
“He had that nameless charm, with a strong magnetism, which can only be called, ‘It” Elinor Glyn
What is charm? A captivating demeanour. It seems like it puts other people at ease. I will offer this. Charm is a state or trait of having purpose, and we experience charm not just from something or someone having purpose, but when this purpose is at least to some degree evident. I was going to say friendly, but then I was thinking how sometimes friendly people make me suspicious. Yes. Friendly conduct can be more estranging than charming, but to charm something or someone is to put it to a purpose, use it toward an end. Not everything has the… Seek More
They say history repeats itself. The practice glamour, which is the name for systematic charm work, is you look at the world as an ongoing dialogue. We are bound by our natures to behave in certain ways. We seek food and shelter, some degree of companionship with our own species, and intellectual diversion. These among other things, but we did not invent these purposes. We are creatures of these influences or charms. They were pre-existing circumstances for us and thus exist as a fundamental part of nature. They also replicate across all beings though their literal manifestation differs from entity… Seek More
We don’t have control of charm because we don’t correctly identify what we are working with. We see feelings as “just my emotions”. We see events as accidental. We see unusual perceptions as just being imagination. We believe in coincidence? Yes, and it’s not a meaningful word, not as far as definitions go. Co-incidence. Simultaneous happening. That’s every moment of every day. If I ate breakfast, it was a coincidence. This would seem to suggest that there is no such thing as free will or choice, but our awareness and experience tell us otherwise, do they not? If there is… Seek More
Perhaps to take Glamour work back into human experience… We have all heard the term feminine charms, yes? Women these days often resent the term feminine charms, feminine wiles. It implies they are being deceptive, but in fact the opposite is true. The supposed wisdom is in fact the lie. Mostly women don’t like the old ideas about their charms, because they are related to what they now see as weaknesses, frailties. These are not weaknesses. They are strengths, realities, and vital to the survival of the species allowing the only measure of emotional health our children even have, and really… Seek More
How do we perceive illusion? Unwelcome. False. Not real. Yes. It’s typically seen as unwelcome, and judged as not real. But all of your problems are illusion, does that make them go away? No. Sound, light, sensation, vibration, resonance. All of your experience is the way something seems to be. It’s reality is an energy our bodies and natures translate in the way we judge to be illusion. You create your experience. Indeed, and we create it in dialogue. But instead of persuading, we are persuaded. Instead of speaking, we are spoken at. We are not spoken to, because we cannot be… Seek More
When it comes down to deciding between cookies or no cookies, that choice is a charm. It may seem a silly and meaningless choice, but they all echo. No cookie can become no kiss. No kiss can become no love. No love can become no hope. No hope can become no life. Cumulative choice. Yes. Glamour is cumulative choice, but even just a spark of it gets things rolling. A simple grain of sand builds a pearl. The beating of a moths wings adds strength to a tsunami, but we don’t need to sway the whole world, just our world.… Seek More
