To understand the benefits read the post titled: "A function of poetry and a view of the 7th valley in the tale of the seh-morgh".
Clearly the strength one can derive from Love, by reciprocating it, is priceless and even Oxygen for a person who wants to make this journey of 'waking up'.
An important point to remember though is that: The true nature of everything on this planet even the Pharaoh is Goodness, Purity and Love. The only reason its not there where its not is because in this case the Pharaoh continued in his state of disturbance by suppressing his Consciousness. [This is the miracle of CREATION and a miracle of HUMAN NATURE.]
The good news is that: The process of reaching a higher state of consciousness can be troubling while it happens. But onces its reached the disturbance goes [because you correct yourself] and you become powerful and at the same time more at peace.
Interestingly after achieving a higher state of consciousness you will not be able to do certain things [that are harmful] because it will require such a heavy toll on you that you will have no choice but to avoid it.
There is in reality no choice for us but to constantly up our state of consciousness and after a while it doesn't seem that scary either.
An easier less violent way to look at this process may simply be to think of entering a 'state of wonder' and enjoy the excitement associated with it only to come out. And then to re-enter again and again.
"Awe is the salve that will heal our eyes."

2. The key interpreted: in each moment you must maintain the same level of consciousness. Whenever you go against your conscience you will again feel disturbed.
