Immediate Benefit

I have had many people come to me and say, “I have heard these words over and over and over again; however, when they were coupled with a metaphor, suddenly the decisive experience of opening intelligence came home to me. It came home to me, and that was it.” We start to realize that there is a whole other outlook on life, a whole other way to understand life, a whole other way to be. We may be a little bit tentative about this at first, but because it is so convincing in terms of its immediate benefit to us, we, although tentative, go right ahead anyway. Plus, we see in our friends a change; we see a dramatic change, a dramatic glow.
