Explore your boundaries with creativity

Life isn’t a support system for art. It’s the other way around.

Stephen King

I’ve been thinking about this a bit recently. I think it doesn’t really matter what medium we use, but we should put more emphasis on creating art.

Imagine if school were to simply create creators rather than obedient workers? I know this is the premise of Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk, but I for one wish there was more emphasis on creation in schools.

It’s something I try to do in my own classes, by helping students express themselves in English. But having made more things than I ever have over the past year, I think I need to make even more of a creative effort. This is not to make money, but to explore the boundaries of the mind. I feel creativity truly is the only way we can really do that.

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.
