A brother once shared a poetic description of our human experience that resonated deeply with me. He stated –
Perhaps mountains symbolize what humans should become… True to itself regardless of what happens around it. No weather or external change could bring down an entire mountain. A tree could be cut down, an ocean could be polluted, a lake could dry up. A mountain stays true to itself with the ebb and flow of weather cycles…governing itself with the light from the sun and moon.
We all experience moments in life that call for mountain-like stillness while also having to embrace the circumstance. Ironically, maintaining this strong stance means pushing past moments of difficulty. Perhaps this push is training to mold and define our character, values, and mindset to be better.
Continue improving yourself and be sure to have fun!
