Why do things end? Undeniably, we don’t know why. We even don’t know whether it will end in happiness or sadness. We keep on rocking our boats and doesn’t even know how it will end. We are always afraid of the circumstances may come because we think that after all of these, everything will end. Nevertheless, we still believe that we are predestined in something else’s new, right?
Why should we know our boundaries? Because our heart knows the vastness our life wants to achieve, but it is limited. They said, “the sky is not the limit”. In fact, we are the limit. What matters most is to focus on what really matters. We should believe in ourselves because our limitations are those of what we impose on ourselves.
Life has its boundaries and sometimes our hearts don’t care about it. Just don’t let yourself captive by doubts. There’s no barrier or boundaries set in a heart of a person that loves their self and all God’s creations though life will inevitably end. You just need to sit still, long enough, in any spot on the woods or on the mountains—where you will find great beginnings which may be not or may be greater than endings. You will start to see hope when you cease to understand it.
Come, let our new beginnings spark.
After days of rain, we decided to treat ourselves a kind of witnessing one of God’s creation. We started our trek around 8:00 in the morning and had all our energy turned on. We were so thankful for the good weather and had a conversation about how we missed trekking.
The amazing views on our way to the peak astounded us. Suddenly, we felt like being away from the city for the meantime was refreshing.
We were in the mountains and they were in us. We were speechless by its beauty. Every view was worthy and it wallops in our mind. It was so peaceful and comforting like your soul was talking to one of the mountains like they already knew each other for a long time.
The sunlight was smiling at us, ready to tickle our skin whilst the wind lips the trees. The vastness of all reminds us how little we were, why life has its boundaries.
After hours of trek, we’d finally reached the boundary. The boundaries of the world which shifting forever from day to night, a joy to sorrow and love to hate. Who can say at what moment we may suddenly cross over border from one place of existence to another? Enthusiasm was upon us when we’d emplaced out feet on the peak—making every nerves quiver and filling every pore and cells of us.
Summit left us feeling renewed and more positive than we had been for weeks. Turned ourselves outward to experience the world and inward to relish the pleasures gaves us.
Mago (Boundary Climb) was another perfect experience. We thought boundaries may be a safety net because it leads us to the right path.
On our way back, the weather changed because it has its own way of showing us that the sky and mountain were happy of witnessing happy trekkers who loves all about it, and it cries.
“How will I know who I can become if I don’t give myself the chance to try new things, to push myself beyond my natural boundaries? Who might I be if I am away from the things that I currently use to define myself?”
