What’s your ideal ordeal?

Put yourself out there. Make mistakes. Learn. if you don’t put yourself out there, you don’t make mistakes, you don’t learn.

Putting yourself out there can be a bit of an ordeal. I would go so far as saying if there’s no ordeal, you aren’t putting yourself out there enough.

We have the ability to put ourselves out there, and to put ourselves in an ordeal, but we don’t have to be stupid about it. We can still have some manner of control over things. We still want to have an ordeal, but it has to be a controllable ordeal. An ideal ordeal so to speak.

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.
