Live and learn, in that order!

The old saying live and learn is spot on. The only way to truly learn something is to live an experience of it. To learn is to grow. Therefore, the only way to grow is to live. That means you have to put yourself into situations where you live, sometimes uncomfortable situations, but they give you the greatest chance to live, and the greatest chance to grow.

I just posted a video to my YouTube channel on my Yamabushi philosophy. It was only by making this video that I learned the importance of having a microphone at the ready whenever recording outside! I also learned from another YouTuber that voice can be edited on the computer. Live and learn I guess!

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.
