Different roles for the same thing
While of course I want everyone to read everything I write when I write something, I accept that this is quite a lofty goal.
I’m currently writing a long form essay on Dewasanzan.com and I have a specific audience in mind, those wanting to learn about Japanese culture, and religion in particular, but I accept that they’re not going to want to read the whole article.
And that’s fine, because the article has a secondary (well, probably primary) goal of bringing the existence of the Dewa Sanzan into their consciousness. At this stage, that’s actually not that easy to do.
That’s one big reason why creating content is so important. In the current age awareness and attention are in short supply. That’s why I feel so privileged to introduce the Dewa Sanzan to people, and it’s what I want to continue doing.
Because I feel that you have something that can benefit the world, it’s your obligation to do it.
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.
