Excerpt About Mountain Metaphor
The second mountain is the same mountain as the first, but is seen without the dualistic point of view. When we see the second mountain, our heart is unified. We don’t have two loves. We have only one love— because there is only one reality. This points again to the juxtaposition of the two terms “divine” and “eros.” The first represents the spiritual world and the second represents this world, but divine eros combines them. When we see their reality, we recognize that they are inseparable. They are not only inseparable, they are one. When we see the spirit completely for what it is, we know that what is called the spiritual universe is nothing but the true underlying condition of this world.
