I am ONE with this.

Indifference could mean lack of attention or understanding
Not yet ready to receive it
Perhaps at a later time
Or not ever.

When the sense of the experience feels like a shutting door
It could mean a No
This is not right for me
Or the stirring of fear that blocks the path to the yes.
