Out of the abyss and in front of the mountain.

The final buckets of water have filled the ravine and approaching the surface one now recognizes the need to cross, to move on, and proceed to the next destination. With fire as light, the near vicinity of the future is illuminated, and one sees that having now elevated themselves up, out and through the converse lies ahead: a mountain.

This is not a mountain of challenge though. Being circumspect was necessary before, now is a time of reflection. The process of moving oneself is balanced by the action of static observation. The action of inaction.
