020 The Yogic Way—Understanding as the Root of the Path

<p>Prejudice and fear alone prevent the person entering into foreign domains of knowledge. The cocoon of the familiar is a prison of contempt. Wisdom is born from understanding; understanding is born from knowledge; knowledge is born from entering into the unfamiliar in a spirit of openness and with a willingness to learn. This is an &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2018/03/23/020-understanding-root-path/">020 The Yogic Way—Understanding as the Root of the Path</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

019 The Yogic Way—Anchoring in Bodhicitta

<p>Being anchored in bodhicitta is the only true insurance. It is the only uncorrupted thing you can hold. It is at once the path and the telos, the reality of causation and the freedom of its cessation. It is at once emptiness and phenomena, morality and transcendence, compassion and wisdom. Parting from it ensures being &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2018/02/07/019-anchoring-bodhicitta/">019 The Yogic Way—Anchoring in Bodhicitta</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

018 The Yogic Way—The Balance of Emptiness

<p>When imbalance is experienced, the common error is to attempt to create or construct balance. And these attempts of control are endless and fruitless. The art of balance is ruthlessly simple: hold nothing. The mind that abandons holding itself dissolves the cause of imbalance. It co-emerges into the emptiness of appearance and so everything is &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2018/01/19/018-balance-of-emptiness/">018 The Yogic Way—The Balance of Emptiness</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

017 The Yogic Way—Relinquishing 08.01.2018, 03:15
017 The Yogic Way—Relinquishing

<p>To recognise the reality of emptiness, one has to find the thing to be relinquished. It cannot be found in any text, philosophy or teaching. It is the grip itself, the part of you that holds the mind and holds the body. Do not look for an ego, a self, an essence, a false consciousness. &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2018/01/08/017-relinquishing/">017 The Yogic Way—Relinquishing</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

016 The Yogic Way—Perseverance and Patience

<p>The loftiest goals are actualised on the wings of perseverance and patience. With those two attributes any goal – worldly or spiritual – can be attained. Patience is the sky and space around the jumbo jet, perseverance is the engine power. Without the sky there is no possibility of moving forward, without the power there &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2017/12/11/016-perserverance-patience/">016 The Yogic Way—Perseverance and Patience</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

015 The Yogic Way—Truth 01.12.2017, 01:00
015 The Yogic Way—Truth

<p>Being true is a verb not a logical statement. Truth is living, porous, manifest. The search for truth is the search for refreshing water in a desert. A necessity which is nonetheless hard to find. Truth is distinct from inclination, instinct, habit, language. It is hard enough to encounter that few persist. Those that do &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2017/12/01/015-truth/">015 The Yogic Way—Truth</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

014 The Yogic Way—The Jewel of Simplicity 21.11.2017, 02:08
014 The Yogic Way—The Jewel of Simplicity

<p>Simplicity is synonymous with clarity, elegance and precision. A tamed, concentrated mind always expresses itself in this way. Complexity is never ignored or covered up. It is seen clearly, directly, precisely. But nothing much is done with it – it is not grasped by the mind and turned into a complex conceptual-symbolic order. It is &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2017/11/21/014-jewel-simplicity/">014 The Yogic Way—The Jewel of Simplicity</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

013 The Yogic Way—Mere Belief 17.11.2017, 01:26
013 The Yogic Way—Mere Belief

<p>There is nothing quite so dangerous on the spiritual path as abiding in mere belief. Such a danger lurks in every tradition and on every path. Abiding in mere belief is always a choice. One does not know, so one chooses to cross the gap with mere belief - usually built out of the currents &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2017/11/17/013-mere-belief/">013 The Yogic Way—Mere Belief</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>

012 The Yogic Way—Compassion 13.11.2017, 02:54
012 The Yogic Way—Compassion

<p>True compassion arises out of the mirror-wisdom, the seat of Truth. Those who act compassionately before such an attainment are indeed acting. They are mistaking their sentiments and affections for compassion, disguising their attachments and aversions as altruism. The world is filled with compassion actors, but is almost entirely bereft of the genuinely compassionate......

011 The Yogic Way—Will 10.11.2017, 02:08
011 The Yogic Way—Will

<p>Such a truth [that yogic life entails immense will] goes deeply against common opinion, which associates spiritual life with passivity, and meekness, and the surrender of ambition. It mistakes the silence of the heart and the serenity of samadhi for the dissolution of will. But in truth, the will becomes devastating, potent and intoxicatingly intense &#91;...&#93;</p><br><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au/2017/11/10/011-will/">011 The Yogic Way—Will</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://aretehouse.com.au">Arete House</a>.</p><br>
