Three hardest words in the English language?

Sometimes people do us wrong. Sometimes people go out of their way to make our lives difficult. Sometimes they’re doing it as a means of survival, and you just happen to get caught in the crossfire. Sometimes people think you truly are to blame for their misfortune, and they do whatever they can to let you know.

Whatever the reason, we need to show compassion. We need to take the higher ground and show them that we see them. While I love you is definitely a close second, sometimes we need to stop and say ‘I forgive you’.

Don’t let the situation drag on. Don’t let them get the better of you. Just accept the situation, let them know your feelings, calmly, and then you can move on.

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.
