22. I Am the Gate - the Emptiness

Beloved Bhakti, Love. Your letter. You write me that without me you cannot pass through the gate and with me you will not pass through the gate. Oh! I know that. But you need not do either. You need not pass through the gate with me or not with me. Because, I AM THE GATE. Bhakti, I am NO-ONE - so how can you be with me or not with me? And, ONE who is NO-ONE only can be the gate. The Gate means the emptiness. Because the Gate is nothing but the space to pass through. Pass through me - not with me - and know. I appear to be some-one only from without. But deeper you penetrate me the less you will find me. And, in the end: NO-ONE. (To, Ma Yoga Bhakti, New York, U.S.A.) 19-4-71
