The Path to Life

Images hosted by Photobucket.com

"Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to death, and there are many who enter through it. But the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."
(Matthew 7:13-14)

Yes! Seek the path to life - to full living! Who says that these words of Jesus have to do with heaven and hell (as is usually interpreted)? Rather, this is an invitation to fling wide the gates of eternity here and in this moment.
Every day it is our choice which iron turnstile to push open.
Which path do I choose to walk today?

"eternity here and in this present moment"

Seems to be a recurring theme in the blogs I read regularly!

And you're right: it is a daily choice, maybe even a moment by moment choice.

Thank you for giving me a wonderful new perspective on this passage from Jesus' teachings!

"Every day it is our choice"

Thanks for reminding me of this- it is choice-

I believe all beings return to source and that returning is a matter of deciding now, here- or now, here- or now, here...

It is always "now, here"

It is our choice....now, here.
