Constant Positive Reset

On the theme of Uketamo from yesterday, never forget, every single moment is a new one. Every single moment is a new chance to push forward.

Our past experience often plays heavily on our current decisions, and there is a recency bias there too. You decided not to go out yesterday, thinking it wouldn’t be fun. But it seems everyone else had fun and you missed out. Today though, is a different day with different possibilities. But judging on yesterday, you’d probably go out, right?

By the same token, something bad happening doesn’t need to be repeated. When we get in a funk, we think it’s because we’re in a funk. But it doesn’t have to be that way. One bad thing does not have to lead to another. Each moment deserves respect, and that means you need to look at it in a positive light.

Don’t simply be in a state of constant reset, but in a state of constant positive reset.

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.
