"Taking refuge is a subtle and important concept. When we sincerely take refuge in a "higher power," it is an implicit recognition that we need help. More than that, it is the recognition that help is available. This is the beginning of developing real faith - not blind faith, but faith based on our own experience. It is opening to the realization that things are not the way we think they are, and that someone is there to help us - someone who knows what is to be known."
