Caught in yes or no

The mind is like a corn maze. At every intersection, there is a left or right - a yes or no. Yes creates no, like right creates left. What we seem to be seeking as yoga folk is a higher perspective. However, running through the corn maze of the mind generally only produces lefts or rights. To see the maze, you have to climb out of it and view it from above. From that vantage point, you can see what kind of game it is we’ve been playing. This would be the difference between philosophy only - the maze, and philosophy plus practise - climbing up.
