As I ponder within my thoughts before I begin to write. My thoughts bring me reminiscing as I pause away from the present moments. I often ponder on being complete because who can define what really matters in life. Can a person single handily be complete by the one whom crosses your path or do many single handily inspire you to fill life with some sense of belonging? To journey through life with a sense of belonging is a fundamental part of who we are.

I travel through time as I begin to write; my thoughts begin to travel forward with an essence of belonging. Perhaps it might otherwise be daydreaming or dreadful memories that I find myself pulled into without recognizing at times what stands in plain view. Staying present in the moment can at times be harder than it looks. Countless times I’ve found myself caught in a daydream or reminiscing. Hanging on to one of the things I tell myself at times I don’t really need.

A person can climb a mountain through time travelling only with thought. But to get there, you’ll need a guide or sense of direction to find some mastery. Mastery at best requires people or things around us to accomplish great things. While we journey through life or perhaps walk through great mountain terrains, our thoughts, experience, emotions derive from within. We may begin to externally seek things out that we ponder on or when we long for some sense of enlightenment. But also to remember and acknowledge we all have limitations we set forth. Not everything can be given freely and not everything can be taken.

Fears that derive from within may carry merit when we can acknowledge why we may feel this way and then place this knowledge towards better use. But also understand within ourselves that sometimes facing fears and emotions head on can be the hardest task at hand.

As you may begin reminisce through time with memories, travel forward with an essence of belonging you may find yourself standing at the bottom of a mountain. While staring at a mountains path that may be unknown, a person can begin to admire its beauty from within and the external factors at hand. While gazing at this mountain with a sense of sight, you can begin to carry insight. Is this mountain a fresh view for your eyes or is it one you attempted long ago? Does your heart race for the adventure with excitement or does it race with fears one may feel inside?

Who will stand next to you while travelling upwards towards this mountains terrain or perhaps one may choose to stand alone the distance at hand? Does your heart crave to pave way with others while traveling through the unknown or does one willfully create action within that you can call your own? As you may begin to pave way new journeys, new memories or perhaps old memories to guide you through, you begin taking the experience at hand travelling uphill through the mountains terrain. You readily take a stance and face the terrains head on. Barreling forth ahead only to find that your thoughts can be self-guided. Are you self-guided or do the pieces at hand provide insight and guild you?

Setting sight on everything within your path, you begin to set forth the journey at hand. Motioning forward any direction you can go, carrying pieces of this mountains terrain as you continue to go. All the while you feel the breeze, smelling the crisp air as you travel far. The gentle leaves move within the trees and whisper subtle as can be, the stream ahead may fill your thirst as your internal insight sets in motion. Follow the light as it settles upon you, build a fire all around you. The ground beneath you carry’s your feet to travel far; the air you breathe becomes your friend by far.

Perhaps you traveled far with another. You may find you’ve discovered shared experience best at hand. As you walk through the mighty terrains building lasting memories, will it become your journey you’ve come to embrace or perhaps withstand …?
