Use today for tomorrow

I’ve started swimming again after a break of 6 weeks, thanks to everyone’s new best friend the pool was closed. When I start back, it takes at least two months to get back to a comfortable pace for me. Until that point, I keep telling myself that today’s practice is to make it easier for tomorrow’s.

But isn’t everything like that? I think that’s what it means to be on a do, a way or path. Constantly working towards making things easier for yourself. At least that’s how I see it.

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.
