Walking in High Places

The traveler today on an old Roman road, whether in Syria or in Britain, finds himself led along the upper levels. The highway winds about in this direction and in that, in order to maintain its original elevation. It refuses to descend into the swamps and ravines. Thus is good drainage ensured. Thereby is the stress of hill-climbing avoided, because to go down at any point makes toiling upward at another point necessary. The surrounding landscape lies open to view, with few hiding places for lurking foes more common in ancient times than now.

So with the sagacious individual on an excursion in thought. He starts out in high or spiritual altitudes, and remains there. He permits ideas of good report—healthful, normal, righteous knowing and thinking—to pour into his consciousness. In the light of such meditation, he begins to find that he is a man of strength, of courage, of resourcefulness, of character. He begins to see that truly there is no other self than spiritual man; and that the imitative mortal, his so-called baser self, is nonexistent.
