All of this takes place in the present moment ~ which is probably why mystics go on about it so much. The present moment (itself) forms a gateway, and if you didn't know this you might spend a lot of time searching elsewhere.
Mystic Gateways are signs, elements, ways, or situations, that alert you to the here and now. A Mystic Gateway can be a very simple doorway or path that invites you into another situation, or highlights something to make you look again at where you are. Mystic Gateways allow you to pass through into almost another dimension where the everyday world is viewed in a different way. Mystic Gateways are aspects, ways, or situations, to show you much more of the present moment.
The TAO I CHING and the ELEMENTS are your gateway to an awareness of your own energy and influence in life.
The ELEMENTS form a link, or gateway, from the spiritual and symbolic realms into this world through the hexagram, that steps through this gateway to give you information and insight.
" Through Mystic Gateways you enter the
visible working of the world. This can only
happen in a situation that is built for this
very purpose ~ the present."

The Mystic Gateway
There is a lot more going on around you than you are aware of. There is a dynamic flow of energy running through the world that influences everything you see and do. The TAO I CHING will show you how to see these energies, how to use them in your everyday life, and how you can develop your own 'spirituality' and a deeper connection with the world around you. The issue centres on your awareness ~ and this can be opened.
Awareness comes about through perception, but your perception can get altered and diluted by your physical state, your emotions, thoughts, opinions, experiences and memories. Awareness embraces perception, but it's something more than your knowledge, focus, or interest, and develops into an understanding.
