Maharaj Charan Singh Explains
The previous Master used to love using the words of other mystics to explain Sant Mat. When we see that other saints have given the same teachings, he said, it reassures us of their indisputable truth. Here he is elaborating on verses from the Bible, from the Gospel of St Matthew.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.(Matthew 7:13)
What he [Jesus] means to say is that the way back to the Father is very narrow and difficult; but the gate to destruction is wide and is always open. It is very easy to fall prey to temptation, to sensual pleasures, but very difficult to withdraw your consciousness back to the eye centre, and to knock at and open that door, and get admission into your house.
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.(Matthew 7:14)
He says that the path is very narrow. It is extremely difficult to enter that path because the wind of karma and temptation is always blowing. … So he says, the way leading to destruction is very, very wide and easy. But the way back to the Father, which gives us everlasting life, is most difficult for us to follow. However, the reward is great.
He says: “Few there be that find it.” Do not think that everybody will be able to walk on this razor’s edge, that everybody will be able to seek the Lord.
