Tested not simply talked about
First you need a clear understanding of what the problem is. This can be a very hard thing to figure out at the best of times.
The best way of finding out what the problem is, is to take action. It’s to put your ideas into practice to see whether your assumptions are just assumptions, or whether they carry some weight.
Once you have a clear understanding, your next actions are made much more obvious.
At this point though, it’s easy to speculate, and to hypothesize and just leave it there.
Once again, action is necessary. You now have new assumptions that need to be tested, not simply talked about.
And that’s how you push forward. Conjecture and assumption can only get you so far. Action takes you to the next step.
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.
