Minnows

Minnows. Small fish. Or, people who have the potential to come from nowhere and take everything. In many sports, NZ is a minnow. Cricket being one of them (maybe not so much recently).

Something about minnows gets me excited. The potential for an upset is always good TV. Like Japan against South Africa at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Not only does it give the minnow instant status, it also downplays the status of the loser, and I think that’s something that should happen more often (but then they wouldn’t be minnows).

Well, I mean that every once in a while, it’s good to be put in your place. It keeps you on your toes and stops you from being complacent.

For minnows, it gives them a sliver of hope too. So, minnows. Keep doing what you’re doing.

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.
