If you don’t have direction, are you lost?

Yamabushido training provides direction to those who need it. It’s for those who have maybe lost their way a little bit, or for those looking for the next step in life.

But it got me thinking that if you don’t have direction, if you don’t have motion in a positive direction, are you lost? I think it’s possible to be somewhere without a specific goal in mind and not be lost, simply to just ‘be’.

This would be like a limbo I guess, not lost, yet not moving forward, although that could be argued to be moving forward simply because you’re not moving backwards… but anyway, not all who wander are lost!

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.
