Nature is in our nature
There’s something primitive about feeling the crunch of the leaves under our feet, smelling the dirt, and sensing the breeze as it flows across our face.
Whenever we go ‘out’ into nature, we are reminded that we need to do so more often. Nature is our drug, it is the reason we are alive, and it’s at the core of our being.
The ancestors survived out in nature, living off the land, and they did so with a reverence that can be easy to forget in this modern life.
This reverence must never be forgotten. Nature is in our nature, and its regenerative properties are next to nothing.
Don’t believe me? Next time you’re feeling in a funk, go ahead and take a walk in your nearest forest.
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.
