The Intrinsic Gate

Gates, as I have mentioned prior, are both a physical thing, and a metaphoric process, if you will. Each person can be, (though not all will be) a gate for others, a doorway to newer understanding, deeper resonances with the Universe. We open gates within ourselves, and serve to open gates for others, often never knowing we have done so. Some of these gates we open lead to good outcomes; others fall considerably short.


I think of spiritual guides as a kind of gateway, but I find that those without such intent, who nonetheless still open those gates for others, to be far more compelling. Perhaps it is the unplanned, unintentional aspect of these gates that intrigue me the most, I haven’t fully sorted it out yet. But many of us have met people who open their gates for us, just because that is who these people are. Welcome, they say, without words. Just with the sureness of their hearts.

Who knows what lies beyond?
