Written with grace and punctuated with humor, THE PATH reveals fascinating parallels between Twelve-Step program philosophy, Gurdjieff's concept of man's hypnotic sleep, Robert Monroe's out-of-body experiences and the path of the Toltec warrior as described by New Age phenomenon Carlos Castañeda.
Esmeralda Arana illustrates how your modern-day person with a busy lifestyle can walk the Warrior's path and lead a life of balance and serenity. By giving an extensive account of her experiences with lucid dreaming, she also provides instruction on how to expand one's perceptual horizons and develop latent psychic abilities. Arana teaches us how to alter perception of the self in order to transform into a spiritually evolved person and overcome common problems such as addiction, depression and obesity. She shows us how, through understanding the nature of perception, we can all control and mold our personal realities and free the mind from negative influences. Arana emphasizes that diet and physical exercise are important and often neglected components of a solid spiritual foundation and urges the reader to explore activities such as yoga and the internal forms of the martial arts. This is an invaluble guide for anyone reaching for higher spiritual truths.From the Author:
Carlos Castaneda’s books describe a set of teachings that lead to the awakening of a staggering set of perceptual abilities lying dormant in each of us. These abilities include, but are not limited to clairvoyance, telepathy and telekinesis and are referred to in Yogic literature as the Siddhis. All esoteric paths including the Warrior’s Way (Castaneda), the Fourth Way (GI Gurdjieff), Theosophy (Rudolf Steiner, HP Blavatsky) and those of the Taoist, the Sufi and the Yogin, converge upon knowledge of and activation of the chakra system. All of these paths include a philosophical side and a "doing" side. The philosophy results in a vanquishing of the "false mind" or the negative side of the ego. The "doing" side results in the energizing of the chakra system with a concomitant development of the Siddhis. It is the "doing" side of all of these paths that provides one with the ability to have direct experience of suprasensible realms. It is direct experience that leads to true knowledge. The philosophy without the "doing" results in belief systems alone. Lucid dreaming is part of the "doing" side of the Warrior’s Way, while Yoga exercises are part of the "doing" side of the Yogin’s path.
Most people find the esoteric literature difficult to grasp and impossible to apply practically. My aim is to present a simple and straightforward path that your modern person with a busy lifestyle can understand and practice with ease. I provide a bit of philosophy and a bit of "doing".It is my direct experience that following this path results in a life of peace, serenity, balance and most of all, true magic.
