There lived one mystic who was also an excellent painter. He would make the canvas come alive with the stroke of his brush. His paintings held deep hidden spiritual messages, but not everybody could understand his masterpieces, just like the words of the wise sages.
Once he painted a human heart with a beautiful door. The painting was so magnificent that it could cast a magical spell on the onlooker to believe that the painting was in fact depicting their own heart. However, the door shown in the painting was closed. Everybody who saw the painting could not resist noticing the closed door. Not only this, when the painting was examined closely, the door was also without any visible handle.
One critic approached the mystic painter and pointed this out. He asked the wise one, “The door of the heart is closed and it doesn’t even have any has any handle. How one can open the heart to God?”
