Climbing mountain


We are all travelers climbing the mountain of clarity via our own path. The path is unique to each of us because we are unique individuals.

Many times we are hindered from our climb by the 5 hindrances as described in the video below. They are namely - 

1) Sensual desires 
2) Ill will / aversion 
3) Dullness / heaviness  
4) Restlessness and 
5) Skeptical doubt



The Blue Mountains


Everyone who aspire to reach the peak will gather different experiences along the way. We cannot ask other travelers and expect to get the same experiences as them, nor extrapolate what the path (truth) would look like.

Our views when we reached the peak may also vary.


Live the present moment


We often lament on the past opportunities that we have missed but forget to look at the present (or future) where our next opportunity lies.

We fail to accept our current situation and live on hope. 

We become reactive instead of proactive.


Ask ourselves - why so?

  1. When we reached the peak but it was too cloudy and nothing much to see so we have to come down. Sianz!

    1. Can we blame that on bad luck e.g reached the peak at the wrong timing?

      Or maybe we haven't reached the peak yet? The cloud blurred our vision?
