Journey Within…

Journey Within…
By: Eric Gajewski

The Journey within is seemingly treacherous.  The narrow path is first seen amidst the tall forest.  Night approaches and there is no other path to take.  Few shall find this path and even fewer shall complete the journey in this life.   This narrow path is completely dark upon first entrance.  The night has fallen and the tall trees surroundest thee.  The terrors of the night tried to impede your progress with the evil suggestions. They are loudest upon first entrance scaring away the majority.  They say no man has ever finished this path turn around at once and flee back toward safety and comfort!  Then, within, the man, his own self shalst rise up against him trying to convince himself there must be an easier way.  Full of doubts, fears and anxieties a soul must press on. 

We must battle the flesh, our weaknesses and the enemy sometimes all at once.  If we stay in prayer we are safe.  If we look at the nature which surrounds us we may fall.  Over time a dim light begins to lighten the path.  We see the sun on the horizon advancing against the dark.  We become more illuminated and begin to stop looking behind us.  We begin to see all the fruits of the wars won from previous times.  With each ray of light that penetrates our soul we begin to press on with even more fervor than before.  As dawn approaches the night terrors seem to be heard less and less.  We lose ourselves and continue to press on.  

There can be no stagnation nor retreating on the narrow path.  There can be no looking towards the forest lest we faint away with terror.  Eyes down focused on one step at a time in the dark and when the sun arises to illuminate we can then begin to pick our head up and see the goal.  With each step a soul labors to fight against self love/will and the enemy.  With each step we take we are one step closer to Union with the Son.  On this path of silence and solitude the majority turn away.  For in this silence they do not like what they hear in their own heads.  On this path of solitude, they do not like what they see in the shadows in which they walk due to sin.  Only the brave and courageous press forward.  The journey within is the real world and yet the majority of Christians spend their time living in this world.  They do not want to combat; they do not want to walk this narrow path of pain and adversity.  However, the fearful shall never arrive at the End. (Apoc 21:8) Infants cannot walk.  Adults can and yet some refuse to. (Jn 11:10)
