The Real Answer to Everything

42.

I joke.

Modern psychology in the West tends to assume there is an answer somewhere and that if we could just talk enough we would be able to find it.

I don’t think there is an answer.

Or at least if there was one, it would be fluid.

The thing is, even if we were to find the answer, we’d either be left with more questions, or we would be bored.

We go into the mountains in search of the answers, and while we may find the answers to today’s problems, it doesn’t really help us for tomorrow’s.

And that’s fine.

This keeps us on our toes.

This keeps us wanting more.

This keeps us moving.

Which I think is the real answer.

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.
