Every experience has a hidden agenda
It is really noticeable when you don’t give your all to a project, either because the project doesn’t turn out the way you expected (i.e. worse), or because it does and you wish you could have done more.
Even projects you find hard to get around to provide things to learn. If you find yourself procrastinating or not working on something you should, look past the immediate benefits or disadvantages and think of the bigger picture. The lesson may not be there in black and white, but it is there, and the only way to know what it is, is to go at it yourself.
Remember, every experience has a hidden agenda. Every experience has a way of teaching you something. You may not be able to see it in the moment, but it is there, I guarantee 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.
