Ain’t No Mountain High.
Mountain climbing teaches one to truly appreciate the meaning of life. Its purpose is not to conquer the mountain itself, but it’s about conquering the self.
Also, one of the many invaluable lessons that I learnt from mountain climbing is on making the most of the landscape around you. Naturally for many, the main objective of mountain climbing is to reach the top, and I must say, that the experience when you reach the summit is oh, so, awesome! What was once only a dream, a distant vision, is now part of your life. However, as you climb, the view changes, and there is nothing wrong with stopping and then to enjoy the vista.
With each metre you climb, you can see a little further. So take time to discover things you have never noticed before! Feel the breeze! Listen to the rustling leaves! Smell the morning dew! Recite Surah Ar-Rahman and ask yourselves, “Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, do you deny?”
I am terribly itching to climb another mountain. Somehow, I wished this passion was ignited earlier or that I have more means to go round the world to mountain trek often. Nevertheless, Mount Tahan next, anyone?
Life is Awesome!
