Just came back from a trip to Shizuoka prefecture and was fortunate enough to see it- Mount Fuji in its stunning beauty. It was not my first time seeing it, but there was something special about it this time. It was glowing with a thin ring of clouds by the top. I remembered receiving a file from Sensei with a picture of Fuji and the words "Be as strong as the Mount Fuji". And sometimes I just feel I'm totally there and there are days (like today) when I feel it's impossible and will never happen. That that karma of mine is unbreakable. But then I tell myself: "If you quit now, you'll carry it around in your next existence." I don't want to.
