The gravity of the situation
Never let the gravity of the situation get to you. The situation is what it is, things might not be as normal as they usually are, but the gravity of the situation has no standing on how you should feel. If you’re able to accept the situation for what it is, it means you can also in a sense forget about the gravity of the situation, and focus on what you are there to do.
Often the added pressure that comes along with the gravity of the situation is just excess baggage. It’s unnecessary to think about and only makes you do a worse job. Focus on being in the moment. Focus on what the moment can bring, and on what you can bring to the moment. Not the situation.
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.
