      The teaching that meditation
      has the potential to one day
      change us and our entire
      worldview, and our perception
      or who we are and what our
      environment is all about -
      suddenly and completely - may
      sound implausible if not
      impossible.

      But here's a true story
      to illustrate how I witnessed
      it happen one day in Maine.

      A young person's world
      completely and suddenly
      changed - to her utter
      amazement:

      As I stepped into a lobby
      elevator in a large office
      building, I saw two young
      girls (maybe 5 or 6) already
      on the elevator. They were
      holding onto their Mom's
      hands, looking a little
      uneasy about this enclosed
      box house they had entered
      with other people in it.

      They were silent as the
      doors closed. When the door
      opened at the 11th floor,
      it opened onto a reception
      area with lots of plants
      and flowers decorating
      the area. One of the girls
      froze in her tracks for a
      moment and then let her
      mother escort her out as
      she shouted...

      "Mom, how did they do that?"

      One Love, One Day,

      Jeff
