You shrink back from the narrow way, which is laborious.

The narrow and the broad way.

And he likes to cover the laborious way joyfully; he pays no attention to the exhausting things, for he constantly receives power from above, and for that reason he also securely reaches his aim. Read more:

The narrow and the broad way.

19. September 1955. B.D. NR. 6359.

The way, which you go on earth, can for you be splendid, comfortable and rich in pleasure but also laborious and difficult, and mostly you choose the easy, level way and enjoy everything, what this way offers you of joys and pleasures. You shrink back from the narrow way, which is laborious, and you do not ask for the aim of the way, which you have walked along. It is enough for you being able for the moment to enjoy the splendours, which the broad way promises you, but you do not think of, where it leads. But again and again narrow ways branch off from it, and always messengers stand at these turn-offs, who call and admonish you, to go those ways, which indeed are not level, but require an ascent, why you must apply power to overcome the ascent. But the messengers also promise you a magnificent aim; they assure it to you, that you do not take the hardships of the way in vain upon yourselves, that the aim will richly reward you for all hardship, for all renunciations, which this narrow way demanded from you. Again and again you have the opportunity, to exchange the broad way, for again and again you meet these messengers, who warn you to continue your way, and seek to entice you onto that way, which leads upwards. You must listen to them; you must seriously think things over, that you are in a danger, when you unwaveringly further pursue that way, which can never lead upwards, because is demands no efforts from you, when it seemingly goes along level, but always leads more and more downwards, to the depth. You must become alarming yourselves, when your earth life always brings you fulfilment of your desires, for you must admit to yourselves that they are always only worldly joys, which you desire and create for yourselves - joys, which pass like dream products, of which nothing valuable remains for you, rather leave in you more likely a feeling of emptiness and of uneasiness, when you seriously take yourselves to task. The street, which you walk, is certainly hemmed in by hedges rich in flowers, and you feel comfortable in such area, but it is nothing genuine; they are just simulations and covers, which are to hide from you what lies behind them, and you would get a fright, if you could see through and discover the mire, which these flowery hedges are just to cover. But the ways, which lead upwards, require the overcoming of unevenness, and it is not easy to cover such ways, but on top a marvellous aim is in prospect for the walker; he sees a light radiating above him, which incomparable agreeably pours over him and which lets him forget all hardship. And the walker knows, that this is not a blinding light; he knows it, that the true home expects him, which will then offer him all splendours. And he likes to cover the laborious way joyfully; he pays no attention to the exhausting things, for he constantly receives power from above, and for that reason he also securely reaches his aim. He returns into the father house, to be and to remain happy for ever.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6359.
