Narrow is the Path

A brilliant man once told his students that the way to authentic human life was narrow. But he didn’t leave his students hanging. He himself perfectly walked that path.

It’s a tough trail to traverse. The journey forces us to abandon the destructive patterns in our lives and relearn new wholesome ones. In the process, the trail sometimes seems obscured from our sensibilities and riddled with painful debris.

Yet, I’m learning that the life of which this brilliant teacher spoke isn’t simply the destination of the journey, but the journey itself. Walking the narrow path, even when it’s most painful, is true life and well worth the journey.
