What gives you joy?

If you’re not doing what gives you joy, what are you doing?

Sure not everything we do should give us complete joy, we still have bills to pay and mouths that need feeding, but if there is a total lack of doing things that give you joy, you’re doing the wrong thing.

At the very least you should be moving to a posture that allows you to do the things that give you joy as often as possible.

Now, if you’re unsure of what exactly it is that gives you joy, don’t sit there wondering. Get out there and explore the world, at the very least you’ll discover what doesn’t give you joy. That puts you right on the way to discovering what does, and discovering more of what you need to be doing.

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.
