The three truths - Veda, Yoga and Self Realization
Hi All - While watching and learning from the video series on Healing Rahu/Ketu, I recently learned from the three truths videos on Veda (4th), Yoga (8th), and Self Realization (12th). @ernst mentions that with his Rahu in the 7th, it was difficult for him to practice Yoga and feel the real benefits from it.
My Rahu is in the 8th house and relates to the realizing truth from Yoga. I do not practice Yoga. As I comprehend the video, I need help to understand if practicing Yoga will serve as a catalyst or as catalyzing process to realize my truth, or is it more metaphorical?
to learn new truths we have to approach rahu, so that means working on the yoga when Rahu is in the 8th.
From the perspective of non-dual teachings (more specifically, Rupert Spira for me) and from my own experience, one doesn't need Yoga to realize truth. One also doesn't need mantras, mudras, or any form of practice. We only need to recognize "I am aware" and "I am aware of being aware" and see that the nature of this awareness, consciousness or knowing of experience is always there, unchangeable, unperturbed and common to all regardless of particular circumstances. As Mooji beautifully puts it: "we are one in essence, unique in expression". And, this only takes a few seconds to realize that. I wish I had realized that sooner, would have saved me a lot of time, energy and money in Yoga trainings and such, in search of some truth or of my true nature. Duh! With Rahu/Neptune in the 4th, I guess I was meant to explore home outside of home, only to realize there was no trip to take in the first place.
With that being said, since our belief in being a separate entity is strong and comes with a load of unhelpful habits, it's usually easier to understand this from an intellectual point of view than to have a felt sense of our true nature and embody it. That's where Yoga can be useful: as a way to align how we feel in the body with this understanding. The trick is to find the right Yoga teacher. Rupert Spira and also his wife, Ellen Emmet, Jeff Foster, are people you can look up if interested in exploring this approach.
Hope this helps!
If Rahu is in the first, the closest moksha house is the 4th? So Veda is what they need to work on?
The closest moksha house to the 1st is the 12th house: self realization. So shouldn't that be what the individual should work on?
Likewise if Rahu is in the 5th, won’t the 4th house veda be the closest to it?
