Question: In his Sermon On the Mount, Jesus said: “Enter through the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way leading to destruction and many are those entering through it. For small is the gate and narrow is the way leading to life and few are those finding it”. Can the ascended masters please give us, ascended master students, a current-day teaching on this? Are there specific spiritual practices or requirements that will best help us stay within and be able to pass through this narrow gate that Jesus talked about when he was on earth?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Ending the Era of Ideology.
We have already given quite a few teachings on this. It is simply that there is a difference between the outer path and the inner path. The broad way, the wide gate is what most people on earth follow through the mainstream religions. It is promised that if you follow a few outer rules, follow a few outer practices, obey the outer priesthood, then you will be saved after this lifetime. I will come and save you for you and do all the work for you.
This is the broad way that leads to destruction, because the narrow gate that leads to your ascension is the inner path of transforming your consciousness, purifying your mind from all reactionary patterns, from all wrong beliefs, from all separate selves, from all ego. Most people are not aware that this path exists, most people have not been ready for it. Of course, the mainstream religions have been so taken over by the fallen beings that this knowledge has not been widely available.
As you can see by the number of people who are interested in non-mainstream spiritual teachings, more and more people are waking up to this, but there is still a big gap between what many people are ready for and what the mainstream religions teach. Basically, the way to follow the narrow way is to follow the spiritual path as we outline it. This is not to say that this is the only way it can be done.
Mainly, it is about coming to see something in yourself and consciously choosing to rise above it. And we have of course given numerous teachings on it. I recommend that people who are interested in this, take the course: Path to Self Mastery and start with that, going from the 48th to the 96th level, and then using the other books that we have recommended after that.
