Your part in the journey
Everyone is equal precisely because we are at different points along our journey. Those who are ahead, look to them for advice. Those who are behind, look to lift them up.
Never be dejected for not being far along in your journey. Focus your actions on getting to where we want to be. You will get there in due time.
Never treat people as lesser. We too were where they are now sometime in the past. We too were able to benefit from the advice of those ahead of us.
Know your position, but know it is mobile. Know we are all moving one way or another.
Give yourself and others the space they need to move along their path. Everything is a process.
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.
