Prepare as best you can
When we had the earthquake and tsunami a few years back we all just in front of the TV for days on end. Before long, it got really tiring hearing all the bad news, and knowing nothing was really going to change, we made the brave decision to turn the tv off. It was the right decision in the end.
There’s really no point worrying about things you have no control over. It simply wastes your time, and is time that is better spent elsewhere. Of course it’s good to check up on news, but if something serious were to come, our phones will let us know.
Of course if I say this though, it looks like I’m underestimating the power of nature, but I’m truly not. I’m embracing it, and still preparing as best I can under the circumstances. A little more bad news here or there won’t change much.
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.
