I had the pleasure of hearing an analogy Cicely Tyson referenced regarding her life’s journey. She likened her journey to climbing up a mountain whose peak is forever unattainable or unreachable, yet she loves to continually strive to reach the top.
I found this utterly relatable, what happens along the way is always so unexpected and enlightening. Just when you think you have gotten it all figured, you find out there’s so much more to figure out and something new to learn that will benefit you in ways you cannot foresee. This has been my experience in all things, especially as a believer in Christ, my relationship with The Most High and through Him is something that I constantly strive to perfect.
As I reach each level/realm of knowledge/experience with Him, He then lets me know there is more for me to attain through Him. That is a feeling beyond explanation and one that gives me great joy; and so, STILL I RISE!
This is Gangkhar Puensum: Kangkar Punsum, alternatively, Gangkar Punsum or Gankar Punzum. It is the highest mountain in Bhutan as well as a strong candidate for the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. With an elevation of 7,570 metres (24,836 ft) and a prominence of 2,995 metres (9,826 ft), it bears a befitting name which means, "White Peak of the Three Spiritual Brothers.”
“I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something, then there's nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe that there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.” ~ Cecily Tyson
