Change your perspective, change your path, change your experience

When I went to high school, everyday I would walk the same way to and from school. Well, nearly the same way. I realised that there was one small place where the path I took on the way there was always different to the one on the way back. I’m talking a very small distance, maybe 10m. I’m not sure why this happened, but I assume it was because when we walk, we’re almost always looking for the most efficient route, but naturally, even in the same location, the opinion of the most efficient route changes depending on the direction you are headed.

Same person, same place, different time, different directions, different path.

When you go through an experience, know it’s not the only way to experience the experience. If you weren’t happy the first time around, it’s OK. Change your perspective, change your path, change your experience.

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.
