Perspective changes everything

How we view something depends entirely on how we were brought up and what we were led to believe from a young age. Different points of view can allow us to experience things in different ways. This is why our minds get blown when we see people doing things in a way we had never even thought feasible.

By exposing ourselves to different cultures and different people, we begin to see and sometimes experience the world through a different set of eyes. We get another view of the world that is just as real as ours, but with the advantage of being from someone who has been brought up to believe something entirely different to what we have. This can only add to the human experience.

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.
