Ah, the majestic lines of Mount Everest.
As humans we suffer from the inability to always think freely. Sometimes, names and places and what “everyone else” is doing just seems too great and we too, find ourselves walking over a statue at Angkor Wat.
With our free will comes the unique ability to decide what is great in the world we live in. What is worth our time. What invigoates and changes and transforms us into the beautiful creatures we have the potential to be.
Too often do we opt to go for what we heard was the best or the biggest or the most beautiful without taking a minute to decide for ourselves.
We live on a rapidly transforming planet that will never be the same again. With 7 billion people comes great responsibility. Mount Everest cannot be sought simply because one has the money to do it. With what natural and ancient wonders we have left, we individually must see beauty and the awesome everywhere.
We have little choice left.
To hike mindfully in the woods at the end of the city can be just as invigorating as the tallest mountain on Earth.
Anything is for you. This is your world (our) world.
Live in it wisely.
