Re: Poll: Should spirituality play a part in an aikido curriculum?
Are you using the above example of Ueshiba as an example of a lack of spirituality, Si? I don't see it.
I don't think it's necessary to equate spirituality wih gentleness.
BTW I'm always a bit confused by the word as well, it can be translated into Finnish with two different words one of which has more of a "mental" flavor and the other a "religious" one, so I never know quite what English speaking people mean...
