It's through Meditation and Yoga that the mind is made aware.
It takes time and sooner or later the mind becomes ready... and then self enquiry will open up.
It's the preparation of the mind that brings about perfect peace.
The mind is like a green peach that's not ready for picking... until enough sunlight has fallen on it to create the right conditions.
Thus Meditation and Yoga open the mind to possibilities... that would not otherwise be enquired into.
Like everything else... we are only ready... when we are ready.
Dr. Paul Haider
