Moving Mountains

If you “have faith and doubt not”, says Jesus, you can tell this mountain to move and it will move. Have faith and doubt not. Damn, that one is tricky. Faith I have, I actually have loads of it. Doubting not, there’s the rub. What does it look like, really, to never doubt? Isn’t it only fools who never doubt? Maybe that is why I keep turning up The Fool card in the tarot recently. I need that Fool’s vision and courage. I’m trying to move mountains. Kind of literally.

Recently I have received some very generous and unexpected feedback, rather randomly, from people who have worked with me in retreat at my now-on-the-market center on the mountain. They are telling me how they have moved mountains in their lives since coming. Each expressed a clear sense that it was their experience here that gave them the needed strength and vision. I give at least 50% of the credit for these results to the location in these ancient and wondrous mountains. They just get under your skin and do something to you. All I have needed to do, mostly, is get you here.

Now I am moving into town, downtown, the heart of the urban environment. Can I move the mountain with me, so that what I do still carries the power? Can it be done? Shall it be done? Only if I have faith and doubt not. Doubt… not… and move this mountain. Lord God please help me with that one.

    Seems to me you can’t ‘not’ move the mountain with you.

    What comes to mind is, “Before enlightenment – chop wood / carry water. After enlightenment – chop wood / carry water.”

    It’s an inside game, now.

    Your conscious mind has been exposed to the power and purpose of ‘the mountain’ like a piece of photographic film exposed to light.

    So you have soaked this in. The mountain archetype has, to a degree, been brought to conscious awareness.

    No worries. You cannot help but bring the mountain with you wherever you go.

    A song by Donovan (back in the day), “First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.”

    Funny how this works.
