More from Emmet Fox's classic The Sermon on the Mount: The Key to Success in Life.
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:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
There is only one way under the sun by which man can attain harmony, that is to say, health, prosperity, peace of mind— salvation [sobriety— physical, mental, emotional & spiritual], in the true sense of the word— and that is by bringing about a radical and permanent change for the better in his own consciousness. This is the one and only way; there is no other.
In Chapter Five of the "Big Book" it says, "We thought that we could find an easier, softer way. But we could not."
"This is the one and only way; there is no other."
Somethings are like that. That's just the way of it.
