Learn by Doing, Learn by Living

It’s not very often that we are impacted by the way someone lives rather than what they say. Too often we use words to try and convince people to act a certain way, yet we all know that actions speak louder than words. If you really want to make a change for the better, you do have to live that change otherwise you risk not getting through to people. Be the change that you want to see in the world, right?

It also helps to live in someone else’s shoes, even for a short while, as by comparing different lifestyles we can see firsthand what we like and dislike, and we can choose the option that is best for us. We can talk to the people we aspire to live like, as well, and even try living in their way, as that’s much better than diving head-first into a situation we think we might like.

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.
