Mountains, the dream readers tell us, represent obstacles to be overcome, a challenge that’s been conquered. But I think that’s an easy fit, an analysis that focuses on the conquering rather than becoming, on battling nature rather than becoming one with it.
“For nature, as we know, is at once without and within us,” Joseph Campbell writes. “Art is the mirror at the interface. So too is ritual; so also myth. These, too, bring out the grand lines of nature, and in doing so, re-establish us in our own deep truth, which is one with that of all being.” One love. One heart. Let’s get together and feel alright. Rather than seeing “nature” as something to be overcome or conquered, see it as something to become part of. That is what this Sunday Focus wants of you.
