Your unique experience brings unique insights
I find explaining one certain aspect of my life makes people go quiet because they have no idea how to respond. And I don’t blame them, it’s not an easy topic (maybe you can guess). But by talking about it, I can talk about what I learned from it, and at the same time I can show that it’s healthy to talk about these sorts of things.
It’s a pretty simple observation, but the unique experience you have in the world brings unique insights to the world.
I have had a number of experiences that I’m certain other people haven’t, at least not in the same combination, so I think I have some unique insights to give. But the problem comes when people can’t relate to them, so you have to express them in such a way that people can relate and respond to them. At least that’s what I need to work on.
I think sharing these unique experiences is extremely important, for one, our ideas are exponentially better when they’re shared, and for two, it might just help someone in need.
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.
