Dalina (pronounced duh-lee-nuh) was amazed at the size of it. She had been hiking towards it for what must have been 3 or 4 hours and with each step, the size of the mountain grew in size. However, in this little-by-little pace of hers, she hadn’t really realized how large it had gotten. She only knew that it was getting larger because of they way her vision perceived such an enormous feat of nature like a mountain.
The green that spotted the sides of the mountain sometimes made Dalina stop and just soak it all up. She had never seen a mountain covered in so much green. She was always accustomed to imagining mountains that were mostly barren. That is, not barren, but that they were more likely to not have any green-growth on them. The mountains that she usually saw were mountains that were born out of the fractal nature of the universe. The rock-covered sides of the mountain made it quite easy to notice how the mountain had taken many years to grow in size and shape to the way it was.
Eventually, Dalina made it to the foot of the mountain and began making her way up. As she ascended the mountain, she reflected on her journey at its current point. She was getting to climb a mountain, bustling with green, and had water! Another thing that she was not used to picturing when she thought of mountains. This particular mountain must have had water somewhere near the top or at least higher than where she was because she was able to see water trickling down the mountain. It was almost as if there was enough water to consider it a stream! She thought that this was pretty cool. She had never heard of a stream being on a mountain before.
She continued her way up the mountain, following the ‘stream’ now, because she was interested to see just where it was that this water was coming from. She knew that it had to be somewhere up the mountain because it hadn’t rained in the area in the last 24 hours and she didn’t think the rain from over a day ago would still be trickling down the mountain.
On her way up the mountain, she encountered a number of interesting things. Of those interesting things, she thought that finding a bird’s nest was the most notable. Like the water, she had never seen a bird’s nest on a mountain before. Well, to be more specific, the nest was in a tree that was growing off the side of the mountain, but still, nothing she had seen before. This trip to and up the mountain was proving very momentous, indeed.
On her way up, she also was able to notice some of the tracks of various animals that must have made a similar journey to hers. She wasn’t quite sure which animals made the trek, but she knew that the prints she was looking at weren’t the making of human feet. She wondered if she might be so lucky as to see some of these animals on her journey. Regardless, she felt fortunate to be able to make it up the mountain. She was aware of many people, years and years before her time, who tried to make it up this mountain.
The people who didn’t make it up the mountain were often ones who considered themselves to be in great shape. And while their physical shape appeared to be at its peak, there was a component of their mental fitness they were forgetting – positivity. When a journey as grand as this one, it was important, as society later found it through the years, to have a positive outlook on one’s journey. It was important to carry positive thoughts with one as one continued up a mountain as big as this one.
The positivity was important for several reasons. When one is sending out positive thoughts about things around them, those things prosper. When one is thinking positive thoughts, those positive thoughts contribute greatly to the stamina and strength of the one who holds those thoughts. That is, when one things good things, one’s system (the body) is able to do more than it would if one was thinking negative thoughts. Many people before Dalina’s time had thought this to be true, but until it came to pass that a critical number of people understood this principle, then, and only then, did it have a reverberating effect on those around them.
Dalina continued to climb the mountain and follow the stream up the mountain, thinking her positive thoughts. She wasn’t sure when she was going to get to the source of the water streaming down the side of the mountain, but she did know she would get there. She knew she was bound to make it – especially with her positive outlook.
