from experience to wisdom

“You can only give what you yourself have experienced. If you wish to help others through the healing power of Yoga, you have to put yourself at the service of the art and then through experience gain understanding.

Remember that experience and knowledge born of experience are a million times superior to accumulated and acquired knowledge. Experienced knowledge is subjective and it is factual, whereas acquired knowledge, being objective, may leave the stain of doubts. So learn, do, re-learn, experience, and you will be able to teach with confidence, courage and clarity.” ~~BKS Iyengar, from his book, Tree of Yoga, on “The Healing Art” p. 111-112.
