“Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything – even mountains, rivers, plants and trees – should be your teacher.”

   ~ Morihei Ueshiba


“What if all of creation was put here not only for our pleasure and enjoyment, but for our learning and personal growth? Every detail of life on the mountainside has a pattern, and a purpose, and is part of a bigger plan. How do the snowcapped peaks relate to the rest of the world in the lowlands?
The snow that melts and collects into streams which turn into rivers bringing life and rejuvenation to all in the meadows, moraines and valleys below, eventually evaporates, and when the conditions are just right, turns once again into falling snow. There are myriad lessons not only in this cycle but in every snowflake within the cycle.
Study. Learn. Discern.
