Vaskal, still on his side and looking at the various snow crystals, wondered what these new discoveries really meant to him. He had always considered knowledge to be an important part of his time here in this life, but he never had really considered knowledge acquisition to be part of his trips up the mountain. Now that he was where he was, he was trying to figure out what other kinds of knowledge he had acquired on his times coming up the mountain. Had he gained other knowledge in coming up the mountain? How would he figure it out? What other kind of knowledge could he have gained? Weren’t these trips just for the joy of it?
Turning over on his back to look up at the sky and the falling snow, Vaskal realized that he had been learning on these trips up to the various summits. Reflecting back on some of these experiences, he began to realize the different things that he had learned. As the knowledge of these experiences began to resurface to the front of his mind, Vaskal started to stand. He walked over to near the edge of the bank and looked down over the cliff. Images of him climbing up the cliff flashed and he was suddenly transported through his memories.
In these various memories, he was shown the instances where the knowledge had floated into his mind, without him even knowing it. A rather exciting set of memories and even more so, exciting sets of knowledge that he realized was his all along. Wondering where and how these experiences came to be, Vaskal sat back down on the snow. He sat, not for the sake of sitting, but for the purpose of going deep within himself. This time, right now, was meant for reflection.
He wanted to reflect on where and how these experiences came from and just why they were happening to him. He wans’t opposed to the idea of this spiritual development through wisdom bestowed upon him, but he was unsure where it was coming from. As he sat quietly and listened to the snow falling, he allowed the various initial thoughts to float out of his head. It always took a few seconds before he was able to clear his mind of his current thoughts, but once they were gone, his mind was clear – completely. It was a skill he had perfected… through the climbing!
Of course! I learned how to clear my mind because I wanted to focus on the climbing I was doing when I was scaling the various summits! That’s a pretty important piece of wisdom that I picked up. Wow! I never realized how important that lesson was. I never realized that I had really taught it to myself. I never realized that… wow. I wonder what else I taught myself without realizing.
Vaskal saw a flash of a scene where he was standing on one of the summits, but this time, there wasn’t any snow. He couldn’t tell if this was past or future, but in this instance, it seemed that he was learning something. He focused a little harder on the scene and saw that he was holding something in his hands. Still unable to see what it was, Vaskal focused all of his energy on trying to see what he was holding in his hands. All of this effort to see what he was holding and then instantly, the scene was gone.
Then, everything went dark – Vaskal could see nothing, but he could hear a faint voice. The voice got louder and he realized, it was talking to him. Vaskal, you try and try, but you don’t realize, trying isn’t the same thing as doing. You focus all of your energy on seeing something, but you don’t realize, seeing everything. You’re so close – you’re holding the wisdom in your hands. When you come to grips with the fact that you are wisdom, everything will make sense.
