Be an opener of doors

Be an opener of doors.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think this short, simple sentence holds an immensely powerful direction for life.
And what's more, it's one of the few sayings which can be almost universally applied.

Every player in the great game of this universe has his role to play, and every role contributes to the rolling forth of the universe and the eventual goal it has.
But I feel that as each person progresses, he/she will find that more and more he appreciates and feels the importance of Opening Doors rather than closing them or guarding them.

It is not a trivial game. While many doors are easy and fun to open, many are difficult even to find, and more difficult yet to open, and opening them may be accompanied by trouble, fear, pain...

But each opened door is a step forward, and when the last door is open, the Universe is Holy and Done.

Beautiful. I'll look for a door or two to open today. Thanks, Eolake!
