The less you know, the more you grow?

Just as the further you go out of your comfort zone, the more you grow, the more different your interlocutor is from you, the more you grow.

When you learn more about people who aren’t like you by interacting with them, you see more of the human experience, and that provides valuable lessons for you.

Even when you get to know that someone more and they become less of a stranger, they still hold valuable lessons for you. It’s not a diminishing return.

So, along with experiences that take you out of your comfort zone, go out of your way to talk to people different from you. I guarantee you will grow.

I want to say the less you know about someone, the more you grow, but I don’t think it’s true.

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.
