Question Our Answers

"It is often more important to question our answers than to answer our questions.  The process of questioning and holding a question within ourselves becomes part of the light on the path to discovery, softening and opening us to new realizations.  When we trust ourselves enough to begin to question tradition and authority, we begin the process of direct discovery.  It has been said that the highest learning comes in four parts: One part is learned from teachers; another part from fellow students; a third part for self-study and practice; and the final part come mysteriously, silently, in the due course of time.  Inquiry and questioning can free us from the rigid, mechanical life of strict adherence to one belief, and can move us into the joy of continuous learning."
-  Ganga White, Yoga Beyond Belief, p.11
