We can change the culture

If humans have created something, it means we have the ability to change it, or at least to start over.

When you live in two cultures, it becomes obvious that culture is something that humans have made.

This means that culture can be changed.

The culture of long hours in the office, allocation of only short holidays, and (unwarranted) unwavering loyalty to the boss that is so common in Japan can be changed.

The number of so-called ‘black companies’ here too, that can also be changed.

I’m not saying that it’s easy, I’m saying that it’s possible. Just like the brave blossoms, more people just need to believe 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.

Tim.
