The promise of generosity

Even though I believe the best way to help others is to help yourself first, so you are then able to help them, this comes with a promise of generosity.

To be generous means to give even when you have none. It means to do things without asking, without expectation of reciprocation. To be generous means to help others, or to offer help even when people don’t know they need it.

When we’re generous, we’re making a promise to other people, showing that we respect them, that we trust them.

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.
