: The esoteric way on the otherhand, is a
: closed way that opens up to a way beyond
: words. A gate. An opening that is closed
: until one opens it. A gate that leads to the
: great beyond this or that.
: [oy...now he's into 'gates.']
: What's with the 'gate' thingy, Butcho? Who
: told you there was a 'gate'? A master,
: maybe? When I find him I'm going to boil
: him in a giant vat of oil.
: There is no gate.
: You're home. You're safe.
: You can unpack now.
The question is: how much of the day do I know I am safe? Is it a more of talk or more of a walk?
And there may be things I can do to further embody that "unpacking."
No one can answer these questions unless they spend time with one of us and see if we actually embody "nothing to do."
But then we might get some clues from how stridently each of us present our views here. Does "the lady protest too much."?
