Immediate Beneficial Potency

The first short moment of introduction is the first short moment of immediate beneficial potency. In that we now have something that we have clearly identified as ourselves that we know we can count on for immediate benefit, no matter what is going on.

Beneficial Potency

As the reality of open intelligence’s beneficial potencies come clear, we have inestimable capability and activity. It may at first seem daunting that we have so much power, that we have so much capability and ability, yet the fact that it is only carried out in the moment brings it to the reality of the here-and-now. It doesn’t make it seem so huge. We have capability and ability, beneficial potency in the moment. This is demonstrated by our own discernment, insight, clarity and other skillful means in every moment.

That easier, softer way is simply based on the introduction to open intelligence and then relaxing as that perfect conduct of great benefit. That’s as simple as it gets.
