The Mountains don’t seek attention. They are too huge and have stood the test of time to seek attention from lesser mortals. Unlike the seas, these silent mountains don’t hide anything – they reveal everything to you in various seasons and times. They just humbly yet strongly remind you how to let go of that ego and make you realise that you’re a part of the universe and there’s something way bigger than you can even imagine. Visit a mountain once and you’ll leave a part of you behind.
