Knowledge that knowledge is not power is power.
My profile for my university job states ‘In the communication age, knowledge is power. Find your power.’ It didn’t take me too long to realise that this is actually complete rubbish.
If the greatest ideas in the world were stuck in the mind of someone without the ability to communicate them, then they’re completely useless. More importantly, if the knowledge of these ideas isn’t enacted upon and turned into real-life actions, what good are they?
Knowledge that knowledge is not power is power. Once you know this, you know that action is power. Find your power.
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.
