Shut up and drive
Don’t go too slow. Always keep momentum. Look ahead to check you’re travelling in the right direction.
Don’t stop suddenly. Slow your pace down gradually.
You may not be moving straight, but as long as you’re moving in the right direction, that’s all that matters.
You may come across some bumps. Go over them if you have to, or avoid them completely.
Don’t get caught up with the world around you. As soon as you do, you lose your direction.
The path may not be clear, but when it is, more opportunities will arise.
It may not be a good idea to drive in winter, but sometimes, it’s the only option.
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.
