Gate 5: The Gate of Fixed Rhythms
This gate encourages you to trust your Inner Authority so you can catch the right moment for action. Learn to be patient. Then you will learn to identify precisely the right moment for action. At times it will seem impossible because the desire to initiate something is pulling you apart at the seams, and having to wait is just excruciating. Relax. You actually know how to wait: It is an inherent part of your nature. Wait and let everything happen. What’s more, those with Gate 5 have a need for a fixed life rhythm. You need to live in your own established flow because it brings harmony and coherence to your daily life. You tend to live by a schedule or adhere to certain daily plans. You may even observe rituals that fill your life with calm, whether it be an obligatory morning cup of coffee or a few pages of a book.
