Immediate Benefit

The immediate benefit that is decisively experienced in open intelligence is its beneficial potency. That immediate benefit is always already present for everyone everywhere. It doesn’t matter what the data is; it can be any thought, any emotion, any sensation or any other experience. There is the opening up of it from reification—the idea that it has an independent nature—to simply opening up the intelligence that is the basis of that perception. It is opening up freedom in immediate perception, complete perceptual openness in all experience. It is the reality for everyone, and great benefit is nothing other than that. It isn’t some contrived notion; it is completely uncontrived. It is the reality of every perception, every here-and-now as it spontaneously self releases.
