Participating in Divinity

When before the beauty of a sunset or a mountain, you pause and exclaim, “Ah,” you are participating in divinity.

Joseph Campbell, Ancient Hindu Text

Reverence and Respect for Life

Respect life, revere life. There is nothing more holy than life, nothing more divine than life.

– Osho

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual Point of View

The difference between a mountain and a molehill is your perspective.
– Al Neuharth
Mt. Whitney is definitely not a molehill (at 14,505 feet). But from this perspective at Trail Camp (@12,000 feet), it is difficult to perceive that it really is that tall. And for me, ten years after the backpacking trip, I can no longer recall which peak is which, from the angle I was standing at Trail Camp. It all depends on where you stand, what and how you see.

How like life! It isn’t that I sometimes see “wrong”, but that I need to look from a different angle, or perhaps from the perspective of someone else. It can make all the difference.

From where you stand - from where you sit, how tall does this look to you?
