Wisdom Wednesday - Gates

I read this online quote a few days ago and thought it was worth sharing.


"Think of yourself as a city. You have four magical gates: the Gate of Seeing, the Gate of Listening, the Gate of Imagining and the Gate of Speaking.
Magical gates, because an Infinite G‑d enters your finite city through these gates. An infinite G‑d who cannot be squeezed within any place or boxed within any definition, but chooses to dress neatly in a wisdom called Torah—and these are your gates by which wisdom may enter.
That is why all the world competes to storm those gates. They want you to see the ugliness they see, hear the cacophony they hear, imagine the nonsense they imagine and speak without end. And then, you will desire all they desire and no room will be left in your city for that Infinite G‑d.
You only need master those gates and the city is yours."
(from Maamar Shoftim 5729)
As I meditated on this writing, I thought of the Scripture in the graphic above.   Yeshua said the gate to Life is narrow.  Here is the passage in the *Tree of Life version:

 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.  How narrow is the gate and difficult the way 
that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”

 Something to meditate on, Gail-Friends.
