Spiritual Gateways

Spiritual gateways--doors open to the spirit realm where unclean and familiar spirits masquerading as The Spirit, God, angels, Jesus . . . and they are many and everywhere.  Many don't take enough care to avoid them or even actively mess around with them not realizing the subtle but very real danger.

Could you please explain how just visiting a Zen meditation garden is a gateway to the spirit world? I have a local one that is part of the city parks and recs I love to visit for its calm beauty, however I am not a Buddhist, but a Christian. I just love to especially sit quietly and watch the water falls, ducks and koi on the pond, to get away from the business of city life.
