Re: Aikido minus mysticism: a step forward

What you are hearing from several other posters, including myself, is that usually good aikido is practiced by aikido people that at least understand Ueshiba's spiritual teachings, even if they maybe don't share his beliefs.

I think that spiritual comprehension of the principles of is important to training and should not be ignored
But this is exactly my problem, you should not be concerned at all with others people's spiritual beliefs when practicing Aikido.
