Doing things a new way

If something clearly isn’t working the way it should, we shouldn’t really lambast the people trying to do things another way. People doing things in new ways understand that they have to take responsibility when things don’t exactly turn out as planned, but when has something ever gone exactly to plan?

For me it’s more exciting and perhaps only a little less likely to succeed to constantly try things in a new way. As long as you’ve got your bases covered, and take responsibility when things go south, what’s wrong with trying a new way of living?

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
