to be able to see the mountain
To be able to see the mountain as soon as the door is opened;
To come straight to the point

開 open
門 gate
見 see
山 mountain

Y. thinks it could mean: You can see something, if you open the door. Keep the door closed and see nothing.

I agree. And aren’t these four words the essence of living (and zen)? Open the gate and you will see that it’s all right there in front of you, in fact it’s been there all along!
