From deepest shadow to sunlit peak, all the qualities of being are welcomed.
The mountains offer no judgement of what is ‘right’
They simply are.
This is the beauty of nature, one tree is not better than another.
Together the trees create a forest and each one is beautiful, but lost in the whole.
From the ancient cracked oak to the fresh young sapling.
They just accept.
Sitting up here, at the eagles vantage point, one observes that for beauty to be seen, there needs to be shadow too.
This is as true for the topography of our souls as it is for the magnificence of the Alps.
Light and dark create the landscape together.
There is no opposition, indeed in reality it is this complete fusion that paints the masterpiece of beingness.
