Lucky escapes keep you in check

Today I was driving to the pool and I took one corner slightly too fast for driving on snow. It just so happened that where I rode was covered in black ice, and my car started sliding out of control. I ended up doing an unintentional 90° turn, but thankfully there was no-one around, and I ended up in a carpark. If it had been any other stretch of road with other cars and no carpark to break my fall, things could have turned out much worse. Nothing like a lucky escape to keep you in check. I will definitely be more careful from now on.

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.
