You might be wrong

I’ve been using this one path to get to and from the pool on my bike for a few years now. The other day, I saw an older guy biking in the same direction, but he kept on going straight, and I went over the bridge, as per usual.

Well, about 3 or 4 minutes later, I notice he was just ahead of me. How strange? I thought. I could swear my way was quicker. But obviously I was wrong! I didn’t take into account the traffic light that I always wait at.

That was a bit of a wake up call in the sense that it helps to try alternative routes every once in a while, even when you’re certain or them, because you never know, you might be wrong.

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.
