In General The draw of the dojo.... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #26 New 02-20-2010 08:11 PM
I am taking a break from my usla rambings on about my strugle and trifuns throw aikido. I like to take a mint to share a insite I had last night as the moon drifeted in the sky and the clock tick on, but no sleep came.

The dojo has a almost majical mist that darw me back, even if I do not think I want to be there. I have had a few times when my day has just not gone as planed I toy with the idea of not going to class, some gut felling takes over and I find my body there in the oh so familyer place. I sometimes have to find a few mint to find my brin it dose not alway come for the ride. Inevtable I pratice and I end up feeling better and more connceted. I may not always feel conected to the other people but in general. I don't know what it it is but the dojo or mabby we give up a part of us to the unvers to the dojo so it can give it back. mabby I am more connceted to the people then I like to amite( I am scared the dont like me, and not sure they relly want to conncet to me).

Just a thought pattern I thought I would share....

Interesting. I agree. I have been passionate about several hobbies, including music and flying, but nothing has engaged me so completely as Aikido. When I'm at the dojo I never find myself wishing I were anywhere else. There are days I can't go to class, and when I'm not there, I miss it. I've never felt terribly connected to people in other areas of life, but my experience with people around Aikido is very different.
