There are three things to know about climbing the Mountain. First, it is never crowded on the top of the Mountain. Second, it is very difficult to climb the Mountain, which is why it is never crowded. Third, there is, as Saints and Mystics tell us, a secret doorway at the top of the Mountain leading to a secret passageway to the inner worlds, His World. If we can climb the Mountain, we have the opportunity to knock at that secret door and gain entrance to His Divine Reality. That is the promise of spiritual scripture.mountains
Christ talks about this Mountain all the time, as do all Saints and Mystics. As we know from Biblical reference, Jesus 'ascended the mountain' several times a day. Obviously, this could not have been a physical mountain because he would have had to spend the whole of his time going to, up, down and back from the mountain. He wouldn't have had the time to do anything else. Too, he would have been physically exhausted! Just imagine the task in walking to a mountain, climbing up the thing, staying there a while, walking back down the mountain and then continuing to walk back home three times a day or more! It's logically impractical and makes no sense.
Thus, we can conclude the mountain Christ ascended was not a physical mountain but a spiritual mountain, the Mountain of Divine Consciousness which one ascends through concentration on the Word of God. As Christ said, "the kingdom of God is within you" (St. Luke 17:21). Rising 'in' to be with Him - that's Climbing the Mountain.
Returning to our first statement, it's never crowded on the Mountain. Why? Because most people are satisfied with living on the Valley Floor below at the base of the Mountain. The Mountain is there, always there, but few are they that challenge it. The Valley Floor is familiar, comfortable, secure, filled with people, things, activities, delights - you name it, it's there. It's also comfortable to be with lots of other people. Too, it is warmer and more inviting on the Valley Floor, and... the effort of the climb up the Mountain simply involves too much stress, hardship and discomfort for comfort-driven souls.
