In my morning meditation today, I focused on the idea of “mountain”, and tried to allow some of a mountain’s qualities to reside in consciousness. A mountain is tall, just as I am, and just as every present moment is. Each moment of existence, like a mountain, reaches to a considerable height, and is substantial and demanding, like a mountain. A mountain is also massive. Like the present moment, a mountain is large in comparison with what is “typical” or “usual”. There is nothing typical about the size of a mountain, or about the size, the greatness, of any moment in life.
