Prophets climb mountains – Paulo Coelho
The Lord often has his prophets climb mountains to converse with Him.
I always wondered why
He did that, and now I know the answer: when we are on high, we can see everything else as small
. Our glory and sadness lose their importance.
Whatever we conquered or lost remains there below.
From the heights of the mountain, you see how large the world is, and how wide its horizons.
