Climb Mount Fuji
But slowly, slowly!”
In Issa's time, to climb Mount Fuji was thought to be a sacred pilgrimage and each person would climb it, or smaller replicas, in their own time, at their own pace.
In reference to current times, this haiku reminds us that there is no correct speed for which to live our life. There is no prescribed pace for which to achievement enlightenment.
We are all on our own spiritual quest with our own personal speed.
However in this world of social media and the rat race mentality it is too easy to compare yourself with others, feeling as though you are not good enough, or not going fast enough. But your personal growth is not a race, it is for you and only you to explore, climb, discover on your own terms.
So for today, stop judging yourself in terms of others and embrace your personal journey.
See if, for today, you can sit back and observe what is your pace; the pace that allows you to breathe and feel peaceful and calm?!?
