Smartphones

Simultaneously the most convenient and inconvenient things on the planet.

It’s obvious why they’re convenient. Instant information in the Information Age. Instant communication.

What’s less obvious is why they’re inconvenient.

Put simply, they don’t work on your schedule. They buzz and vibrate at the oddest of times. They remind you of things you don’t really need to be reminded off.

Smartphones come with an innate warning.

Don’t use me too much. Don’t let me control your life. Turn off all notifications. Check things on your own time.

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.
