“Those who know God have experienced the fact of his presence; such God-knowing mortals hold in their personal experience the only positive proof of the existence of the living God which one human being can offer to another.” [UB 24:06]
Thought Adjuster: “You notice that when you revisit a nugget of truth, more of its shining facets come to the fore, adding to your mental clarity and the scope of your enlightenment. It is because your experiential bank account has accrued over time, provided that you ‘invested’ your time wisely to yield valuable dividends in secured currencies of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
“Indeed, your hands-on experiences shape who you ARE at any given moment. Your experiential reality outweighs by far any hearsay. Ponder this for a moment, as it may become an agent of positive change in your life.
“To give blind allegiance to hearsay places you at high risk of circulating unfounded rumors and harmful gossip—as was done toward Jesus. His close associates testified to His outstanding character and were granted access to the inner Kingdom of Heaven, unlike His detractors who remained stuck in spiritual limbo.
“Once you ‘personally’ experience the Divine, you will be a ‘living rebuttal’ of His ‘inexperienced’ detractors. Deep down, they will envy ‘what you have,’ while you will have no ground whatsoever to covet ‘what they don’t have.’ Those who get a taste of the Divine are irresistibly driven to encourage others to initiate their own rewarding quest. Such is the snowball effect of Love in Action.
“As well those who are Spirit-driven are at very low risk to become spiritually lazy, as their lives become ever more thrilling through personal truth revelations and the divine orchestration of meaningful connections. Why would they choose to revert to their old unfulfilling ways? Who would rather eat blend cafeteria fare while having unlimited access to five-star dining?”
