What is the message?
What do you remember from stories of old? What do you remember from Brothers Grimm? What do you remember from the stories of your childhood? The message. The facts can be all made up if the message itself is strong enough. Humans have been passing on stories since we’ve been able to, and the main thing in stories is the message. It’s that message that really has an impact on people, and the story is the way that message is portrayed. So when they’re telling us to sell people on the story, they’re telling us to sell people on the message behind the story. What is your message? What is the story? Use 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.
