The Mountains and Resolve

Mountains are where we have the best realisations. Mountains are a form of medicine. The problem is though, once you’ve had a realisation on the mountains, it’s up to you to have the resolve to do something about it. If the realisation you have on the mountain is strong enough, that resolve should come part and parcel, and if it doesn’t, either it’s not important enough, or you need to spend a little bit more time on the mountains until it is.

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.
