A fair chance

New people and new experiences are the same. They both have the opportunity to teach you new things and give you new insights that can improve your life. The thing is, you have to be willing to give them a chance. This is where many people go wrong. What is a fair chance? It obviously depends on the case, but I find it really helps to give things a proper go to truly test if they are valuable or not. I guess you do risk losing some valuable time, but more often than not I’d say time spent meeting new people or in new experiences is time well spent.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
