Why are you so busy?

These past few weeks have been hectic to say the least. I haven’t had a whole day off in a while, and I won’t for the next week at least. I think it’s taking its toll, and I really need to consider why I’m so busy. What need am I trying to address with this busyness? You know, it might be external, and I think it is. I think I feel the urge to work and work so I can get more money.

Damn, that’s superficial. That’s the problem with having so many things on your plate. I think each thing I’m dedicating to is worthwhile, but I do feel there is a bit of discretion there too. Some are definitely more worthwhile than others. And if I’m being honest, I’m doing them because other people want me to. Not because I truly want to do them.

I want to take the time to reflect on things, but I just don’t have that time. Dude! Gotta do something about this.

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.
