Daily reality, immediate reality

Meditative experiences that put you into the moment, such as meditation, being out in nature, and often cardiovascular exercise, take you away from your daily reality, and into your immediate reality.

I see these meditative experiences as being a ‘check in’ with your self, to make sure you’re still there and not on robotic mode. They allow you to think with your body and your surroundings, not with your head. Or as I like to put it, they take you from your daily reality to your immediate reality.

Constantly being in your immediate reality is a skill we all need to at least work towards, so that we’re not always living in our heads where overthinking can cause mental harm.

Start meditating, exercise, and go out into nature. These experiences help us discover our own immediate reality, and help bring us back down to earth.

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.
