Re: what does religion say about ki?
There are many paths up Mount Fuji, but only one summit.
It can be difficult to tell a person about the other routes, particularly if they have found the only track. But if the paths all end in the same place, perhaps we can learn from all of them?
Besides, if ki is "real", it must have been a part of creation, no?
But then again, most of my family would probably disagree with that, so I guess I'll either meet them somewhere along the way, or burn for a very long time...
