We come to really know ourselves, to know our structural patterns, the patterns of our mind. We come to know our emotional responses to certain situations. We become very familiar with the workings of the mind and we also become more and more aware of the body, the body-mind connection and our relationship with the body- mind connection.

All of this is the beginning of Self-enquiry.

When we are ready to accept whatever we find inside, the judgments fall away and we can celebrate whatever life brings. We see paradise in ordinary life.
