“Many Paths to the Top”

Picture hiking up a great and formidable mountain. Then take note of the numerous routes that can be traveled to its venerable peak. Some routes up are smooth and direct. Others, more jagged and circuitous. Still some paths to the top are exceedingly difficult and maybe even borderline daunting to the novice hiker. Yet, all routes end at the same majestic peak. Here’s the catch though: You don’t know that there exist alternative routes up until you arrive at the mountain top and see other hikers emerge from divergent trails. It is only then when you realize that all paths lead to the same breathtaking pinnacle of oneness. Our differing spiritual faiths are those paths and the mountain top is the God/Goddess that they all lead too. There is no correct way to IT. There is not only one savior. All faiths equally ascend to the same exalted peak of peace and stillness.
