Once the wheels are set in motion

When you’ve signed up for something, but then regret having done so, or simply don’t want to do it, it can obviously be really tough to truly enjoy the experience. But it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once the wheels are set in motion, you really shouldn’t fight it, doing so only makes the experience worse. Look for the positives in the experience and embrace them, and try to make the most of it. Otherwise your deemed-to-be-miserable experience turns out to be one.

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.
