The door is open.
Anybody can come in.
If you want to be alone, close the door.
This is the secret of spiritual practice.
There is inflow of karma,
there is pain
and feelings of sorrow will also come.
So will chaos, grief, helplessness and other such feelings.
What you want will also come.
What you do not want will also come.
So learn to close the door.
If it is closed, there will be
no chaos,
no problems,
no impediments.

That is the secret of spiritual practice - do not always keep the door open.
Open when need arises and keep it closed otherwise.
