CHARM OF MAKING: - This is said to be most powerful of all charms and abilities in occult realms by those who have named it, at least. The truth is that much like many practitioners who devise esoteric concepts designers and embellishers or refiners of this concept would like us to believe they are all powerful. It reminds me of something I read in Morning of Magicians when authors were meeting with immortal Fulcanelli. They talked about Georges Gurdjieff and his apparent process of dance that incorporates Mudra/Mutra brain lobe integration and disciplines of breath and centeredness to keep mind so busy that nothing but truth penetrates consciousness after a while. A regimen of dance and flexibility with a consciousness of marvel of our earthly muscular superstructure was a part of it as well. Gurdjieff claims he learned these things in a secluded paradise in mountain valleys of Tibet where people live to 300 years of age. At age of 87 (or so) Gurdjieff himself was in a confrontation with a car. He lost! Included in his injuries was a broken pelvis and no one thought he'd recover. He did! Then he died a year or so afterwards. At time Pauwels and Bergier were talking with Fulcanelli they asked him what he thought of Gurdjieff and his fame. Fulcanelli remarked something to effect that Georges was a very good man and then said. 'If he knows so much why does he teach and not just create?'
This is what those whose Grimoires are full of decrees would like us to think they can do. Having met them and lived with them, I am not convinced. However, it would seem some truly adept people can (on occasion) make manifest certain realities of a miraculous sort. When someone heals with laying on of hands, there is no charm of making ritual, but that does not mean they haven't acclimated and trained themselves through some similar process or haven't been given such a talent innately. We can't say for sure that ritual isn't part of miracles but we can say there is no absolute necessity of good being associated with said miracles. In final analysis I am inclined to disregard psychopompous nature of power seekers and proselytes who play with things they use and abuse for personal gain.
When acts are for good of all and brotherhood they can more frequently be seen as coherent inputs from natural forces. As Law of Magi states - 'Right Thought = Right Action'. Here is a little miracle that I know is possible yet most would say is pure hogwash and fantasy of 'savage' mind that can't be trusted because they are often drunk and illiterate. Would you imagine yourself able to enjoy drinking if your people had been treated way they have been? Who defines what value it is to write when person can't 'communicate' with their soul?

In 1950, Jean was Dance Artist in Residence for University of Colorado Arts Festival, so Campbells returned again for summer intensive. This time they would drive out from New York, so that afterward they could travel to New Mexico for magnificent Gallup Indian Festival. Also 1950 would be first summer that Jean brought a dance troupe to Colorado summer program; bringing car would allow them to transport some of company to Denver.
