There is a word in the Rig Veda, Nivartadhvam. It means to “twist within” or return or retire.
We retire from the world through samadhi or transcendence.
Then we return to the world by retiring from transcendence.
This is like the analogy of dying the cloth. To dye a fabric the old way, it was dipped in the dye to soak, then hung up in the sun to bleach. That cycle was repeated until the colour was fast.
Too much time in the dye (practices) and the fabric will rot. Too much time in the sun (activity) and the dye will bleach out. But by alternating them, presence becomes fast.
But Nivartadhvam also has a deeper meaning. That is to retire from retiring.
If we stay with being a seeker and practitioner, we can get stuck in a role. We have to retire even from who we think we are to awaken.
This is why you sometimes see people wake up after they give up, after they throw away all their ideas about becoming enlightened. They retire from a role and find reality.
