Sacred spaces, high mountains, mystical vortexes, and interdimensional gateways

There are said to be many sacred and special places upon this Earth. These places can change us, if we allow ourselves to be inwardly moved and touched by the splendour of God's artwork in his creating of them.

Even so, although these types of things can help us, they are not really necessary, or are they?

This article will address further this interesting question.

What's so special about being on a high mountain?

"Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, James and John, and led them up a high mountain to be alone."

Jesus Christ often retreated to a high mountain to pray, and to be alone.

The above verse come from Saint Matthew's gospel, chapter, 17, verse 1.

Why did he do this? Why did even he need to be alone at times?

Did the mountain have a mystical spiritual presence of itself, perhaps being a gateway or a portal into the higher worlds? Can these types of sacred places really help to open our heart up more deeply and profoundly to love?

Can mountains be actually planetary vortex's where the veils between the worlds are perhaps thinner?

If so, can they act as an inter-dimensional gateway providing a bridge for us to cross and to enter into the higher worlds?

Are these types of connective spaces created there to be available there for only those who can be aware enough to be spiritually aware of them, and so these people can actually have a mystical spiritual experience by visiting such a high and sacred mountain?

Perhaps this is the answer to these types of questions.

Love exists everywhere, but in the rarity of the air, and its vibrational frequency aligned to the atmospheric highness of a certain ceremonialness that is created when a person is removed from the everyday clutter of life, we find this stillness, and so it sets us apart for a while, from our normal pace of living.

God himself is always available to you anywhere, and everywhere.

God exists wherever you are, but it is true that certain environmental conditions can help to align you to your heart more easily, and so help to break down the hold on you that your mind has in cementing you to your day to day issues.

These side-tracking happenings tend to negativise the spirit.

This is because the spirit's input is largely being ignored when we live only from day to day, only focussing on problems, and on what we think that we must do next instead of our sitting silently close to God on spiritual ground, so that the portal into heaven stays closer to us, and so that we can hear and see our next step, as it comes into our heart, without us ignoring it, because of the business of our own minds.

Growing a high mountain on our own little island. Can it be done?

Poetry: Mountains within Life's Oceans on our island.

Subtitle: Islands can grow high mountains in God's ocean

I'm surrounded by life, & yet I'm not yet fully, all fully alive.
My higher consciousness has not yet truly yet all arrived.
Dreams of a newer life flow unconsciously fast past me,
but I'm still stuck fast in the gleam of my own daydreams.

In each life there are so many wide treacherous rivers to ford.
We must cross over each one of them one by one, all in accord.
Our island presents us with its reality key not just for our fun.
It's ours if we have begun to expand within God's son in our sun.

Our island will grow high mountains reaching high into our sky,
but only if we become more aware of who we are before we die.
Islands within a stream are all connected together by its flow,
know your place within God's ocean to grow past what you know.

Consciousness gives new birth to an older truth, now come alive.
New wisdom emerges from its beginning youth now not held so aloof.
Our island within God's consciousness stream, now starts to gleam,
as we meet God again by our knowing, we're far more than we seem.

God's stream of living spirit recreates you within him, as a mini him.
This happens only if your soul grows higher within him, now matured.
Although no person really ever lives all alone in life, only on their own,
we do stay as isolated islands, if God's love remains from us obscured.

"Great things are done when men and mountains meet."

This quote is from the English poet, William Blake, (1757 to 1827).

Most of this poet's work had spiritual connections, and mystical undertones them.

In terms of love, this is what I think that he meant here:

Whenever love meets love genuinely so, great works of love can be performed.

Is the valley already within the mountains, or does the mountain emerge from the valley?

Senryu: About mountains and valleys

High mountains reveal,
we must accept life's shadows,
to leave our valleys.

"Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain."

The above quote is from the American president, Richard M. Nixon, (1913 to 1994).

There is indeed a very real reason why there are both valleys, and mountains in our lives.

Our role here on the Earth is only ever one to be our own true selves

We are not put on this earth to be an angel in disguise.

We need pray in church all day long. We do not need he go into the wilderness, the desert, or to climb up a high mountains in order for us to be alone.

We are here to try to understand life better. When we do this our own life will be better.

The truth behind all of this is, that we should all only ever strive, to be who we really are.

If we are angels, be an angel. If we find ourselves as a human, be a human. And then at the same time, we can try to understand our human role through the service of that role to other life, other humans, and to God. Maybe, we might even get the chance to provide service, and love to an angel. Who really ever knows?

Life is not meant to be a matter of working out what you are not. Work out what you are, and love it, and go on from there.

There is never one moment in your life where the connection to God is disconnected.

Maybe this connection to God seems to be disrupted sometimes, by some of our thoughts, and feelings, or by our ego, but really at all times, our connection to God, is always still there, even if it's been placed into the background, for now.

Being up a high mountain just helps us to see through the fog of our mind's daily living at times, so it can help, but strictly speaking it is not really necessary at all. It is though a rather nice thing to do, so why not do it. After all even Jesus Christ did this, and he spent time in deserts as well.

I thought it might be, although the similar one on the south Cornish coast has always held an interest for me. (What I particularly like about both sites is that the tides come in and cut the isles off from the mainland.)

I think Jesus went up into the mountain to get away from the crowds that constantly surrounded him looking for healing, food or words of comfort. We all need our times of solitude when we can 'go into the silence'. Another good post. Blessings.

Thought provoking Spirited.
Through mindfulness one can rise higher without seeking refuge in mountains It is sort of our attitude decides our altitude! Some Indian mystics meditated in the mountains around Himalayas and came back with insightful knowledge and awareness. Few still practice a moderate form of detachment renouncing family attachments when they have discharged their family obligations. Day to day family responsibilities can be a hindrance to spiritual life but some can stretch a minute into an hour through strict discipline - siva
