Why everyone needs to go to the mountains

Why everyone needs to go to the mountains, or anywhere out in nature really. Mountains are particularly good not just because of the sights you see, but because they tire you.

Mountains you can climb at your own pace, which only you know is best for you. When you get to a certain stage of the climb, your focus changes to simply putting one foot in front of the other, and pushing forwards. This means your focus shifts from that of your everyday life, to that of your very existence.

It is in this stage of thinking of our existence, or not thinking of our everyday, that we gain insight into what life is really about for us. Do this on the regular, and you will never feel out of place.

There are a few rules for this of course. You have to keep quiet, you have to stop and show your appreciation to the sights around you for being the sights around you (Kami), and you have to give yourself enough time to do what you need to do.

Go to the mountains. You will not regret 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.
