I pondered within my thoughts before I began to write. I questioned myself 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? Perhaps 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.

My thoughts travelled forward with an essence of belonging. Perhaps it might have otherwise been daydreaming or dreadful memories where I found myself pulled into without recognizing at times what stood in plain view. Staying in the present moments may feel at times harder to practice than suggested by others.

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. However to get there you’ll need a guide or sense of direction to build from mastery. Mastery at best requires people or things around us to accomplish great things.

While we humanly 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 pondered or when we long for a sense within our own integrity. But also to remember and acknowledge we all have limitations we set forth. Not everything can be given freely; not everything can be taken.

Fears that derive from within may carry merit when we can acknowledge why we may feel this way and place this knowledge towards positive enlightenment within ourselves.

To understand within ourselves that sometimes facing fears and emotions head on can be the hardest task at hand…

While you may pause within,  reminisce through time with memories, travel forward with an essence of belonging you may find yourself standing at the bottom of a mountain. A person can admire its beauty from within and 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 you may feel inside?

Who will stand next to you while travelling upwards towards this mountains terrain? Whereas does one choose to stand alone to embrace 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. While barreling forth ahead you may find 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 move forward 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, 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 if you traveled far with another you may find you’ve discovered shared experience.

Will your journey become one to embrace or perhaps withstand …?
