What is the action?

All this knowledge we accumulate, through books, tv, YouTube, magazines, the news, and so on, we accumulate to inform us how we should, or equally importantly shouldn’t, act or behave.

So when it comes to writing or creating something, we need to think of the impacts our writing should or could have. That’s why there needs to be a practical element behind the stories we tell. There has to be something there that informs us how to act in the future.

If you can more easily ascertain exactly what action the media is or is not encouraging, then the media has done a good job of existing. If not, you need to work until it does.

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.
