A young shepherd boy ran up a very high mountain on self exile. He sought to escape being punished for some mishap and ridiculed for his natural in-capacities. He founded a self sustaining primitive village up on the mountain top and aimed to avenge the injustice he suffered. The rarity in this isolated hidden community and the circumstances that accommodate its continued existence gave their inherited rash quest to be forcibly acknowledged a familiarity.
The struggles of a young maiden in these circumstances despite her popular natural good looks, made her appreciate that physical attributes doesn’t speak best of all. This very distant descendant of the founding father of the mountain top village had sets about imparting this and other laudable lessons to her son.
Her recounted tale of a journey through time and it myth, relating with the people that constitute the wholesome story of the entire region, brought her face to face with the same experiences she had only heard of in tales.
She encounters the difference in diverse people and their clashing believes. She learns dominance is allowed and influence deliberate, and growth flourishes only in hospitable settings. Her narration proves that with literacy comes with harsh discernment and this can subsequently hurt the knowledgeable candidate. This makes a simple favour become cruel, it makes good food poisonous and culture archaically crude in its established nature.
The intricacies of faith emerges from her experiences. She discovers that the blindness strict diligence to these faiths produces only spawns selfishness and not civility. Religion prospers when it is unflinching, steady and sure. The stupidities of illiterate disciplines feed its course and develops it to an enviable height.
She learns that resisted change still has considerable impact, since change naturally behaves like physical pressure, which steadily alters the state of all the elements outside its immediate presence. Pressure sucks all elements in or out of its place of domain, inevitably scattering the particles of all other elements.
She sees life thriving on relationships and how wealth, health and peace spell dominance and are the faces of the war that ensued on the lands beneath her mountain home. Her situation highlighted to her she was wrong to expect anything in life and right to expect anything too. This is because people will only strife for their own good always and can be unfair if it doesn’t concern them. People struggle over trivial issues they never ever fully accomplish and this continues as the sun declares hope is about yet again, as it rotates every single short night away.
She saw life as a promise, a loan and the meaning for it. Life is announced and recede back into the void it emerged from when the loan is paid, to the abyss it returns to, to reconcile with the evil it speculates with. She learnt evil would be punished, no matter how long it takes and nothing is truly free, since nothing goes for nothing. It must always be purchased and bought. Someone pays a price, tangible or not, knowingly or otherwise. Not even freedom is completely free.
And finally, not all things noble are sensible or every sacrifice reasonable to all. The choices and options not made or picked are missed out forever.
