“Personally I think it is better to use the yogic texts (or other lofty writings) as a tool for self enquiry to access your own truth and wisdom, than it is to accept on face value or from an intellectual perspective what you see written. Really this should result in positive and healthy transformation into and towards your fullest potential. Our minds can limit us and experiences can open us up if we choose.”, first posted on my FB page.
In addition I would say this. First and with an open mind gain a familiarity with the text, or section of the text in question. Come to some sort of a personal understanding (which will mature over time anyway). Then make that understanding a change or a part of your honest and truthful experience of it. Finally try and share it with others if you are able to.
