Mountain of Fortitude

Updated: Aug 21

Ugly lies.

Vacant promises.

Torn-up relationships.


Life’s a confusing mess of lies!


It’s like a magician’s maze, just when you think you’ve found the true way out, another ugly path opens up. And you’re back to where you started – no where!


But a mountain brings back sanity to your life.

It’s like meditation, when you’re on top of one – breathe in the fresh life-air, and breathe out the stifled – bad air.


There’s something about mountains that sticks with me. If it’s not the sheer size, it’s the resilience that oozes out of its pores.


A mountain, when you climb one, whispers to you like a living-breathing being.

 

In its own mysterious manner, it narrates that age-old story of bravery, of always holding one’s head high, even when the cobwebs of life-circumstance try to pull you down.


A mountain to me is coolest example of eternal timelessness.


Just when you think that you’re just climbing one physically, the internal struggle-climb takes you towards a higher state of mind – where the constant wheel of thoughts takes rest, and the creative life-force pervades.

Climb one, and sit in silence.


Shout at it if you want to!


Listen in deep meditative silence to what it echoes back.


It’ll gently whisper the secret mystery of what life is made of – fortitude , resilience & unperturbed individuality under all conditions!
