mt everest - one of the natural seven wonders of the world - Buddhists believe a goddess lives in the mountain and she decides who summits, who doesn't, who makes it down safely, and who doesn't. She doesn't take kindly to big egos or those who try to "conquer" her. Humble respect always.
Judging from accounts of....exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns...that have been keeping us in drydock. In this state we know great torrents of delight. ~Jean Houston
