In the dream and the dreaming…..
I am shown a map. It is a map of Japan. On the East side of Japan there is a place. It is The Gateway to freedom and enlightenment. I am the Guardian of this place.
No-one passes through – except by me.
People are annoyed that there is only one such place. It is not “where” people think it is. Nor can it be found as a physical locality, for it does not have one.
Many seek it, but it cannot be found, except through me.
People think that this Gateway is guarded by dogs or savage beasts. It is not. It is guarded by an Elephant and that Elephant is me.
Many seek this Gateway but they are all using the wrong methods. I am the Guardian of the Gateway. It is a place and yet not a place.
