approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Pamela's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Pamela Courson comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Pamela Courson - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Pamela Courson" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Pamela a little better. This page describes the disguise Courson wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
She is a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant, accepting, non-judgmental approach towards life. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere Pamela Courson is often receding and withdrawn for she is not an aggressive, forceful person, and she intensely dislikes conflict. In fact Pamela tends to be somewhat passive, to wait, watch, observe, feel and know much - but to act little. Letting things resolve or work themselves out in their own way, rather than directing or forcing her will upon them is often Courson's way of dealing with problems.
Pamela Courson may have a deeply religious or spiritual feeling about life, not in the orthodox sense necessarily, but an intuitive sense of the immensity and underlying oneness of all life, which makes so many human aspirations seem rather unimportant. She needs peaceful surroundings in order to flourish, and periods of quiet solitude are essential for Courson's emotional balance and well-being.
Pamela Courson is also very compassionate and cannot tolerate seeing any fellow creature suffer - be it human, animal, or even plant! As a child Pamela Courson probably cried very easily and became quite upset whenever others were hurt, physically or emotionally. The world of Courson's imagination and fantasy was also very real to Courson, a place to escape to when the outside world became too harsh, demanding, or simply uninteresting.
Because she is very giving and forgiving, people sense Courson's sympathetic nature and gravitate toward her when in need. Often Courson will continue to give to people even when she realizes they are taking advantage of her or becoming overly dependent upon her. Pamela Courson overlooks and makes excuses for other people's weaknesses, and for her own as well. Discrimination and self-discipline are not Courson's strong points.
Though she may be as intelligent as anyone else, she does not really have a rational, logical approach toward life, and trying to reach Pamela through logical arguments is often futile. Her feelings, intuition, and heart, not her head, lead her, which may infuriate or bewilder Courson's more rational friends. Pamela Courson certainly recognizes that there is much more to life than can be explained intellectually and categorized into neat little boxes, and Pamela Courson has an open, receptive attitude toward such areas as psychic phenomena, telepathy, parapsychology, etc. She is not as structured and rigid in her attitudes as many people are, which enables Pamela Courson to see many different points of view and to accept all of them as valid. This can lead to vagueness, uncertainty, and confusion on her part - or to a very flexible and holistic way of approaching any issue.
She is assertive and bold. Pamela Courson is willing to be the first person to speak up and make her position known, and to strike out on her own if necessary. Pamela generally gets along better with men than with women because her approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. She can be a bit too forceful. However, Pamela Courson's boldness is her calling card, and most people feel that she can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
Courson may well have been discouraged from freely expressing herself. Moreover, she may be seriously inhibited by an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line.
She is charming and friendly to everyone, but may prefer more superficial and frequently changing relationships with people rather than steady and lasting friendships. Some of her meetings with others could come about suddenly.
