Last night as we were driving along a friend observed, "Some people just don't get it." "Get what?" I asked. "Life." He answered. "What life's all about. Helping others." "That's probably most people," I agreed. The ancients had a way of saying someone died: "She finally has it." Or, "He finally has it." As though it took an entire lifetime to get it. If we think that we get it too far from the end of our lives, we're probably settling for too little. What is likely a more realistic and challenging way of speaking is to say, 'I think I'm BEGINNING to get it. That leaves plenty of room to complete the lesson.
