It takes 100 feet of snow to, overtime, form one foot of strong, blue glacier ice. That’s just amazing to me.

I heard about this incredible fact during a visit to the Meade Glacier near Skagway, Alaska, with my family earlier today. As we set foot atop this incredible block of ice forged through the centuries, I could not help but be in awe of Nature — and of these incredible blocks of ice formed over thousands of years. I had flown onto a glacier before, but the experience still grabbed me. 

As I looked around the unforgettable vastness of white and blue ice, it struck me: we are glaciers too. Spiritual glaciers.

Buddha and Christ agree on the causes of suffering and on how to achieve happiness. As Kardec would say, this is further proof of the worth of their message — and validation that God continues to reach out to us in whichever way will resonate better with each one of us so we can speed up our walk towards spiritual enlightenment and ultimate happiness.

Hundred of years go, driven by the impulse that life could be more, our forefathers left the old continent in search of a new life. They left everything they had (and were) behind. They braved vast seas, suffered long journeys, and faced uncertainty to levels few of us experience today – all for the promise of a better life.
