Perhaps it is the grounding that is ultimately sought after and not so much the elevation or means to arrive on top. As the view can become a-skewed even from the balanced point.
Not to discredit the journey and truths discovered amidst the rise. All is necessary and par for the course. But to dig deeper and really appreciate the quest brings with it a clearer clarity. One from the core that could easily be requiring an alignment from the earth’s mantle on a physical realm.
There’s much to be said and appreciated with grounding alignment. A tranquil peace that provides a strong sense of stability ensuring balance and strength and with that comes a resounding wellness.
