Turn on the light. And keep it on.

We can’t do anything with the dark, but we can turn on the light.

I realise this may contradict the title of this blog, and I’m not sure who said this, but it’s true. It’s an eternal battle, but by labeling it and understanding it exists, and accepting it for what it is, just like anything else that exists, we can choose how we react to it.

Knowledge of its existence means that we also have a responsibility to do everything we can to prevent it. This means looking after yourself physically and mentally.

Turn on the light. And keep it 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.
