On Summits and How To Reach Them

This year each morning I've been reading THE BOOK OF AWAKENING by Mark Nepo. I've dog-eared and highlighted many a passage, and today I want to share one from last week:

... and here's the complete quote:  

"Despite all our noble efforts to reach some treasured peak -- be it a dream of wealth or love -- we carry the summit within. And it is always the effort and exhaustion -- the very  journey itself -- that opens the view which is everywhere. For the summit is not so much arrived at as we are worn open to it."  - Mark Nepo

  1. What a nice thing to do, reading that book each morning. I think we do carry the summit within. "Worn open" is such an unexpected turn of phrase. Thanks for sharing a quote that you liked! :)
