A summit is not only a point that is higher than others. Every summit, of whatever nature, is a living centre of pure energies.
Such a summit also exists in all human beings: their spirit. This is why when they pray for help, they must first seek to reach this summit within themselves.
And once they have reached it, they contact the centre of energies governing everything.
You may say there is a huge, even insurmountable distance separating you from this summit within you, your spirit.
Of course, but you are able to reach it through thought. Thought is like a rope that you thrust up towards this point on high that you wish to reach.
And even if this summit is still far away, at least you are ‘tied on’ and unlikely to fall.
