What you get is... enormous. You are opening yourself to consciously navigate realms of reality more subtle than, and to some extent separate from, physical reality. It's the start of the Neophyte's opening from Malkuth to the inner realms of the entire rest of the Tree of Life, starting a journey that continues at deeper levels as you go.

To accept a genuinely new piece of data is at a minimum, a subtle chipping away of some illusion about our universe. If something isn't a genuinely new piece of data, then it's easy to smile and accept it into our existing framework, pain free. I think that's why it's been said (serious paraphrasing follows) that one sign of the division between the personal and the collective realms of our imagination is that once we get beyond the personal, and into the collective, there can be an accompanying feeling of otherness, shame, embarrassment, the hot sting of realizing our own limitations, etc.
Kind of like when you're in therapy, or talking to a trusted friend, and you realize another perspective that changes the context of your own self-image. There's a bit of a pang of pain there.
