The mountains will always be there
There is a world where all is peaceful. There is a world of forgiveness and understanding. There is a world that is both unrelenting and testing, some might call it tough love. There is a world that you can escape to if you just let yourself. There is a world where surrender is the only choice, but ultimately, it’s about love.
To know that this world exists, to know that you can always enter this world if you so desire, to know that no matter what, no one can take that world away from you, that is a superpower.
So when you’re feeling down, or when something big happens and you struggle to let your emotions out, you know where to go. The mountains will always be there.
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.
