Looking for the Sacred Mountain

I am in the midst of a book about a search for a mountain that is a conduit for mystic happenings. I suppose these books I read on Tibetan Buddhism are as close as I come to religion unless you count the books on Cosmology that take us to imagine the reality of different universes and dimensions and even
the reality of Non-Reality.
I never made it to Tibet (as yet), but I was in Nepal where I saw
the depth of faith in icons and ideas that have no place in the West except in New Age circles. I found my own moment of wonder not with one mountain but when we were in a tiny plane flying level with the peaks of the Himalayas from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
There the peaks were signposts to Eternity in a sight that cancelled out of pettiness of life for a world we can only conquer
physically….spiritually we are made silent in its sight.
The goal of a sacred mountain can take many forms. If I never get
back to the Himalayas I look for it every day in my own small world. Growing a mountain to believe in is an experience we should all consider.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
