This short is based on the writings of Jonathan Edwards, ‘IMAGES OR SHADOWS OF DIVINE THINGS’. He viewed almost everything in the physical world as a 'type' or a representation of something in the spiritual world.
“As mountains are not ascended without difficulty and labor, and many rocks and steep places are in the way, so men don't attain to anything eminent or of particular excellence without difficulty. It is against our natural tendency to ascend, but when we get above the clouds and winds, we will enjoy a perpetual serenity and calm. The perfect and uninterrupted calm on a high mountain is a type of the heavenly state.”
