Moshe says:

"There are a thousand and one gates leading into the orchard of mystical truth. Every human being has his own gate. We must never make the mistake of wanting to enter the orchard by any gate but our own. To do this is dangerous for the one who enters and also for those who are already there."

Moshe means that everyone has their own path in life and truth. Following someone else's path is dangerous to the person and to the person he or she follows. Truth must be sought by the individual.
