The theme here is rapid and easy progress.
Imagine a powerful baron rallying others around his king, pledging fealty and peace in the name of all. The king invites him to ever closer intimacy.
Progress emanates from a leader who cherishes rapport and willingness. With rising clarity, the baron, rather than abusing his influence, pledges fealty. Free of jealousy, the king showers him with gifts. These are the conditions upon which great progress depends.
