Envious Gnosticism in the Bible

When English rock band Radiohead is a step up from you on the wisdom scale, you're doing it wrong.

Broke: "Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth;"

Woke: a place for everything and everything in its place

For our purposes, Gnosticism can be characterized by the desire to escape matter, into the realm of the mind. Problem: matter was always merely a kind of mind. Gnosticism is cognitive dissonance. They claim to wish to escape from mind into mind. It's a lie. Who is the father of lies, again?

Even Christians used to know that the body is sacred, not profane. The flagellants were heretics and known as heretics. Sadly Christians have become more Christian over time. Super-Christian, ultra-Christian.

If you think a mountain or a valley are wrong, you're the one that's wrong. 

The valleys and plains are already exalted, and the mountains too.
Roughness has a purpose, and crookedness too.  It would indeed be incorrect for the river to do anything but wind. 

"The grass withers, the flower fades," as it should. You may find it unpleasant, but that's not grass' screwup, that's yours. Grass that withers is better than grass that doesn't, and praise be.
