Going up the mountain offers an opportunity to come face-to-face with God, providing a perspective where we can see what’s important. Up there, we are invited to embrace the experience and the beauty of childlike wonder and awe. It’s a place of intimacy with and revelation of God. But the challenge as we go up the mountain is to let go of things. And it’s difficult because most of us have surrendered theophany for dopamine. We have been used to this constant consumption of “dopamine kicks”—the consumption of these things that makes us feel good.
As we go up the mountain, we need empty ourselves and allow God to lead us there. So that we can have His eyes look upon us, which is the purest, the truest, the tenderest, the most loving, and the most hope-filled.
This episode is the second part of our Lenten series on Fr. Mark Toups’s Lenten Companion.
