no need to move mountains…

we may come to our meditation practice with the intention to move mountains, but something else happens. something more subtle, not so dramatic, but nevertheless miraculous.

we begin to see that the mountains are just mountains. not something to overcome. just as the valleys, the rivers, and the oceans are also not something to overcome or conquer. the mountains are the path. the valleys are the path. the rivers and oceans are the path. and we have a capacity to allow them to be just that, mountains, valleys, rivers and oceans. we begin to see all as part of the path.

they are our teachers and friends in disguise. teaching us how to open our hearts, how to be present with our minds, how to be patient with time, how to be persistent and courageous in our compassion, and how to let go into the flow and balance of life.
