It’s a normality

This is normal. This is also normal.

I tried this, and it felt normal, but it most definitely wasn’t normal.

Yeah, although it’ll feel normal, that’s probably not going to be normal.

What about this? I feel if more people did this, it could become normal.

There aren’t enough people saying that’s normal. I think I’ll wait until it’s normal.

Oh yeah, that sounds normal.

That’s Frank. He does abnormal things. Frank is abnormal.

We just need to wait until Frank does normal things, or for the things Frank does to become normal. Because, that’s the normal thing to do.

What’s normal? Who’s normal? Do you want to be normal?

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.
