Let ‘em soar

‘You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink’, is only half true. If you make the horse thirsty beforehand, in a way, you have made them drink.

It’s true that whether someone learns, grows, or succeeds, or not, is entirely dependent on them. All we can do is prepare the right environment for them to have every chance of this.

But when you realise this, you realise that it’s possible to do this to yourself too. It’s possible to give yourself every chance of success, not by forcing yourself to do things, but by building the right environment for yourself to soar.

Whether you drink or not is up to you, but if you make yourself thirsty beforehand, you give yourself every chance of drinking the water.

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.
