Those moments made me feel so small and helpless. The mountains around me towered over blocking out the warmth from the sunset. Seeing mountains from above is a really beautiful experience, but seeing them from below is a grand event.
Physically insignificant at the base of such grandeur, I felt my consciousness expand - for lack of a better word. Even though I saw the earth towering over me, I felt like the metaphysical parts of my being were given new life, strength, and a slightly more concrete understanding of why.
We carry that with us wherever we go, and I can only pray it never leaves me.
Thank you, friend.
