How would you get to the top of a mountain without first believing that it exists?
What makes you keep going? Why even bother? You could turn around and look back, give up, it’s too much effort. But you already know what's there. You can see it, it’s where you came from. Nothing new.
You could look up, but the top is hidden by the event horizon. You’re not allowed to see it because then it wouldn’t be worth it, there would be no need to climb anything. So it almost makes it harder by looking at your current reality of where you are in relation to where you want to be. But the top exists whether you believe it or not. It’s already there because you considered it. If you don’t continue to believe, you’ll never get there, you’ll be fixated on where you are and how hard it is. If you do, you will.
So where do you look? You look back, you look forward and you use THAT to look at your feet. That's the present, even if the ground is gravel and one step forward is three steps back, it’s still the ground. You are still moving. The top HAS to exist because you’re moving toward it. You look at your feet to ground yourself and you FEEL what it will be like when you get there. You have no idea what you’ll find there and no attachment to what that will be. But I can guarantee, it’ll be worth it. When you get to where you want to be, the view of where you came from will make sense. You’ll see why you had to go through what you went through. And instead of seeing it as the known or the familiar, you’ll see it as it is and now always was - beautiful.
Just keep going. Trust. Believe. And feel.
