This is Part 2 of my review on The Alabaster Girl. Click here to read Part 1 which focused on the nature of men and women.
The modern Western world is bereft of many things today: Happiness, beauty, culture, wisdom, strength among other factors.
Where have they gone?
How do we get them back??
These are not easy questions. But we can start making a difference by looking inwardly and seeing where we are at in life.
Finding fulfillment and purpose in life should be the foundation for any man’s life. Yet so many men veer off course, with few ever reaching the finish line:
How many men stand on a balcony and wonder what happened?
How many men cast blame? Why has the world not provided a man with what he wanted? He wanted adventure and he got two weeks’ vacation. He wanted a mission and he got a lawn that needs mowing. He wanted a purpose and he got a cubicle. He wanted a mighty steed and he got a minivan. He wanted a castle and he got a mortgage. He wanted a battle to fight and he got televised sports. He wanted wisdom and he got talking heads on TV. He wanted treasure and he got endless debt.
He wanted every part of his life to be wonderful, and here he is… standing on a balcony, in bleak, ruminating hesitation.
This is perhaps the most quoted piece of text in The Alabaster Girl. It so profoundly sums up the life of the modern male today. Fortunately it encourages those who read it to pursue a fulfilling life at all costs. Never settle. Always chase what it is you desire.
So what happens if we’re not on the right path? Ask yourself this question:
“Is this what I want my life to look like? At this age in my life, is this where I wanted to be?” If the answer is no, then we must renounce everything, immediately and with great force. We must remove everything that holds us down in any way.
That’s a bold recommendation.
There’s a lot of bullshit in the world that gets in our way. It clouds are vision and drains our energy. Before we know it were trapped in a storm of negativity with no way out. This is why you must always be conscious of your state.
Beauty is a rarity these days. We don’t see it in art, music, film or culture. We surely don’t see it in many women:
There’s a difference between hot women and beautiful women. Hot women are everywhere; they abound. They are beautified, not beautiful. Beautiful women, on the other hand, are rare and a real mystery. Hotness speaks to our impulses. Beauty speaks to our imagination.
Why do we so shun beauty today if it’s something we all desire so bad? I’m truly without an answer.
for it is beauty that is missing from this earth and from our hearts. Beauty is the only thing that will save this broken-down old world, the only thing that can recreate the spirit of aliveness in all of us again, in both men and women.
All beautiful things must end. Otherwise they are not beautiful.
Although Zan got his start in the PUA industry, this is not a ‘Game’ book. This book is beyond game. It’s about becoming a true seducer through a profound love of women.
In fact, Game seems too banal for Zan. It comes across as artificial–lines, tricks routines etc. are tools for getting laid. Yet, the approach Zan takes for bedding women is about truly loving women and having them reciprocate:
one can never be a seducer of women if one is not seduced by women.
Take this answer he gave in a Reddit AMA (Which is a superb read):
I am never overtly sexual with a woman (which might come across as rude or crass), but I am always sexual. Everything I say to her is a subtle reminder to both of us that, “Hey, you are a woman and I am a man. And that is a good thing.” I never mask my sexual desire, or hide my intentions in any way. If I like her, I will say it.
Though the book consists in large parts of lofty monologues about a variety of topics, there is still a lot of great dialogue in regards to ‘spitting game’. This is perhaps my favorite from the book:
“I have two bottles of champagne at home… “
“Oh yeah? “
“Yeah. One to drink and one to pour all over your body.”
I’m definitely stealing that line!
Throughout the novel, the protagonist is always wooing women. Complimenting them to feel truly beautiful. He throws in a lot of ‘cocky-funny’ too, but not because it’s good game, but because he truly gets a kick out of doing so.
As pointed out in Part 1 femininity is, for the most part, dead in the Western world. Beauty is also for the most part gone from the modern world. Masculinity, however, is an interesting case.
The whole earth is out of balance, cloaked in an aggressive masculine energy, a systematic obliteration of the feminine. It is a dark and cataclysmic energy, bereft of any of the beautiful components of masculine energy— empathy, generosity, charm— and devoid of the countervailing saving grace and healing of the female spirit.
The goal was equality but we didn’t get it. We got sameness. Men are more like women. Women are more like men. Same, but not equal at all. A complete and utter loss of the beauty of polarity. So women lose and men lose. We all lose.
True masculinity has been lost. We must seek out this energy if we ever truly wish to be a seducer of women.
At the individual level, we must embrace our masculine aura unapologetically:
Our masculine edge, our sexual energy, should be the first thing that enters a room when we arrive. It should never be suppressed. Ever. We have dialed it down all our lives. No more. This has to stop. The world needs men who are fully presenting their sexual energy to the world. Who are proud again to be men.
As for the culture war going on, Zan suggests you step aside:
Let the militant, frothing men and women on both sides yell and scream and throw rocks at each other and leave the rest of us alone.
Seek out beautiful and feminine women wherever they are and shun such negativity.
The Alabaster Girl forced me to do a multi-part review–that’s saying something. There’s so much profound wisdom, witty dialogue, and true love for women and beauty in this book that even these two reviews don’t do it justice.
The story is quite lengthy. At times, Zan seems to be dragging on with his monologues, though in the end you’ll come to appreciate this. For any man looking to see the world in a different light, I highly recommend this book.
