I have been traing mostly constelnly for about 2 years. I spent last ten monts traing on and off. I have meat many people as a reslt of tring at two and half diffrent places. I say more then anywhere else I have meat some of the best peopl in my life , at the core the most genune, even if I have not always goten them and I may never get some. So many though are pure of sprit and I feel safe . What dose it mean to be safe? I use this word to mean I felt like at lest most of the time I could be whom I was. I was not going to be judged infact I found more peope that I was open to there view and they were open to ine. Inotere words there was no two people just one mind mixing and that there was a diffrence it was ok. Everything was ok. There a sence of peace that persuces form that. Porhaps it just my dojos but I belice aikido lends its self to encouraging ones true nature and people feel relxed. This cause us to explore peoae and to find what we are rely at our core and in the process grow closer to the world then jsut the phsical relm that we use to lurn. What is safe to you what dose it feel like and why do that is safe?
