“Your mountain is the block between you and
the life you want to live. Facing it is also the
only path to your freedom and becoming.
You are here because a trigger showed you
to your wound, and your wound will show
you to your path, and your path will show
you to your destiny.
When you arrive at this breaking point—the foot of the
mountain, the heat of the fire, the night that finally wakes
you—you are at the crux of the breakdown, and if you are
willing to do the work, you will find that it is the entry-
way to the breakthrough you have spent your entire life
Your old self can no longer sustain the life you are trying
to lead; it is time for reinvention and rebirth.
You must release your old self into the fire of your vision
and be willing to think in a way you have never even tried
before. You must mourn the loss of your younger self, the
person who has gotten you this far but who is no longer
equipped to carry you onward. You must envision and
become one with your future self, the hero of your life
that is going to lead you from here. The task in front of
you is silent, simple, and monumental. It is a feat most
do not ever get to the point of attempting. You must now
learn agility, resilience, and self-understanding. You must
change completely, never to be the same again.
The mountain that stands in front of you is the calling
of your life, your purpose for being here, and your path
finally made clear. One day, this mountain will be behind
you, but who you become in the process of getting over it
will stay with you always.
In the end, it is not the mountain that you must master,

‘I’ve wandered far
pain, suffering, and scars
who I am
and how I think.
I no longer feel like myself..
I no longer recognize who I am.
“I need to find myself, again.”
~the youthful inexperienced mind
No, I don’t need to find myself again.
And I don’t need to go looking either.
Because ‘I’ won’t be there.
I won’t be fooled into those jedi mind tricks anymore.
Finding myself again- leads to empty short lived happiness that yields the same results.
Now I understand, it’s not about ‘finding myself again’, it never was.
It’s about TRANSFORMING MYSELF, daily. It’s about doing all we can to help one another- both man and nature.
The greatest leaders have become great by learning to be the greatest followers of Truth- who is God Himself.’
