Excerpt from The Interior of the Kingdom

From the thirteen provinces of Japan the Buddhists view the mountain of Fusji-san. Not to climb the mountain once in a lifetime is considered a breach of Japanese duty to the ancient gods. On the top of the mountain the pilgrims from the different provinces meet. Here their white vestments are stamped and sealed by the priests. The mountain towers aloft 12,000 feet, but to view and admire it at a distance will not secure priestly benediction: the pilgrims must climb every inch of the way.

In the Beatitudes we have the real mountain of God. It is the mountain of benediction and blessing. To secure its blessings it must be climbed. Many view it and admire it at a distance, but they are too much attached to the cosmetic attractions of the valley to begin to climb. But the spiritual climber alone enjoys its blessing. 'Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon that have I given unto you.' Mountain climbing is irksome, it is real soul-work, but it is the only way to the mountain top.
