Patience

Patience is a virtue. I think that is true. People really respect you when you are patient, and they reciprocate by being patient back. I’d rather someone give me the time I need to do something than have someone put pressure on me which in turn just makes things take much longer, and may not be the best quality either.

The problem with patience is when people try to take advantage of you. It can be hard to get them to stop, and sometimes it can be hard to know when they’ve gone too far. You have to be careful and stern in your words, and it helps to have set boundaries so that you can react when necessary.

Patience is a virtue, but never take advantage of it because it won’t reciprocate.

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.

Tim.
