Embrace the now

Shit happens. Big shit, small shit, it happens. You have no control over what happens. You have no control of what happened. The only thing you have control of is the now, and no matter how you got there or where you’re going, you have to embrace the now. Sure earlier decisions may have meant you are not where you could have been, and you’re also not going where you previously would have wanted to go, but that stuff doesn’t matter right now. Embrace the now, don’t let regrets from the past or anxiety for the future get in your way. If you do, then future you will regret you having regret in the past or anxiety about the future affecting your experience. That’s why it’s important to embrace the now.

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.
