The more you have to grow

“If you’re down, all that it means is that you can jump back higher than before.”

For interview practice I asked a student of mine someone they admire and why. His answer was his grandmother, simply because she said this to him when he was disappointed in himself and feeling down. This was a great lesson for him, and I think it can be a lesson for all of us too.

The lower you go, the more you have to gain. And the more you have to grow.

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.
