Becoming Holy

Today, while doing the mail route I listened to "The Autobiography of Malcolm X." One of the things that I found amazing was the speed of his conversion to Islam. Here is a quote that I think expresses to some degree why his conversion was so fast: "The old tradition says that if a man loves God he can become holy in twenty years; but if he hates God he can do the same work in two years." [Robert Bly, Pg. 48, The Little Book on the Shadow]
