Zenlightened Perplexity

Before one goes through the gate

One may not be aware there is a gate

One may think there is a gate to go through and look a long time for it without finding it

One may find it and it may not open

If it opens one may go through it

As one goes through it one sees the gate one went through was the Self that went through it

No one went through a gate

There was no gate to go through

No one ever found a gate

No one ever realized there was never a gate

Even so, the perception that there is no gate is a subjective perception

There is no way of knowing except to go through it
