(Note that this class is now lesson 2 of Freedom Practice – The first minute or two of the video has been changed, but the main content is the same as it has been in the previous versions of the Freedom Practice.)
Everyone has two ways of knowing things. One way is through intellectual understanding, and the other way is through direct experience.
Take the example of someone wanting to know what a strawberry tastes like, but they have never tasted one. If we tried to explain what a strawberry tastes like – it’s sweet, tart, juicy, etc., we could talk for a long time, but would they know what it tastes like from the description? Of course not. They need to taste a strawberry to know what it tastes like.
