We’ve heard so many times that in order to be fully alive and free we need to engage in struggle. And the lie that these pedlars of religious, spiritual and self-improvement schemes have tried to sell to us is that optimal living is available only to a select few, to those willing to sacrifice their own happiness in return for some enlightened, heavenly future.
The Narrow Path invites you to stop trying so damn hard, and take some much-needed rest.
The problem with so much of religious and spiritual living is that it involves an internal war, setting the good parts of ourselves against the bad. And there is no better recipe for pain and dis-ease than war. The Narrow Path invites you to go beyond internal conflict and become whole.
Much of what you read online and in the spiritual and self-help aisles of book shops will ask you to go somewhere. If it’s not some place (like church) or state of mind (like peace) then it will be to go and become some other person: someone who is better, stronger, more self-actualised, more determined, more unstoppable. It will tell you that who you are now isn’t good enough, that you need to be someone who isn’t you.
The Narrow Path invites you to stop this self-rejection and become your own best friend.
