the central mountain


"The Centre where the many became one... could be found everywhere and in everything..."
--Secrets of the Samurai, Ratti/Westbrook


"Black Elk said, 'At one moment in my dream I saw myself in the central mountain of the world, and the central mountain of the world was Harney Peak in South Dakota.' And then he added immediately, 'But the central mountain is everywhere.' " -- Joseph Campbell, mythologist
