There is no one where you are. All the noise people bring is far below, drowned out by the wind perhaps, or simply the height--either way, it's blissful. Without the constant chatter, you find remarkable clarity. Not only can you see farther, you can envision farther, too. You can imagine ALL the possibilities--the things that seemed dim and foreign in the shadow of eath-bound humanity, a shadow you managed to escape. At least, for a brief window. Because that's what human experience equates to, unfortunately.
We have to eat, sleep, find companionship...we simply can't stay on our mountain, regardless of how badly we may want to. But that kind of experience is life changing; it not only alters your mind, it alters your body...and, your soul. You're never the same again. And that's a good thing.
But the point of reaching that kind of peak isn't to linger on the magnificence, it's to take it with you. You've glimpsed something most humans haven't. How can you give that back? What good can you make of that life-altering albeit brief moment where you were as close to God as any human can be while still standing on Earth?
Though the end result of climbing a mountain, whether literal or figurative, appears to just be making it to the top--the real result is what you do with it once you've climbed back down. I wish you the best of luck as you ascend whatever mountain is before you. You will get to the top, and when you do, enjoy every moment. On your way back down, find ways to bring that bliss, that peace, that overall asceneded experience to the rest of humanity. It's your destiny. If it wasn't, you wouldn't have made it to the top, or, back down again.
Until next time, dearest readers....
