Injustices and discrepancies
When you have an in group, it’s very easy for injustices to perpetuate as people just don’t recognise them for what they are.
As an outsider, and one that can speak Japanese at that, I’m taking it as my personal mission here in Japan to point out the injustices I see.
Well, injustices or discrepancies, in a manner that stimulates dialogue so people can think for themselves on the matter.
I may not be able to change people, I accept that, but my hope is that by starting a conversation, I can change their views to be more inclusive.
As an outsider, it’s basically in the job description.
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.
