This sentence is quoted by many for good reason. Placed at the end of Chapter 2, after you‘ve already read glorious prose about birth & the gates to the spirit world remaining open, it sent shivers through me. No good can come of that gate remaining open. I only read a few pages at a time because the writing was exquisite and would stop me in my tracks. At previous spiritual retreats I had heard of this possibility. Emezi describes it perfectly.
