There was once a man who lived beside a mountain. For many years, he would look at its peak and ask himself, “How can I get to the top?”.

One day he summoned the courage and the energy to set out. Once he was on the road, he realized that what he thought was the summit was nothing but a low peak, with a whole range of peaks rising above and beyond it. It was then that he realised that the correct question to ask wasn’t how to get to the summit, but what the true summit was.

In life, we will seldom start out asking the correct questions of ourselves, of others or of God. Only by setting out in search of an answer will we find the right questions to ask.
