Re: Omoto-kyo Theology

David,

I am very glad you posted this here and got some comments. I was a bit surprised at the roar of silence your blog received at AJ. Your reinterpretation of O`Sensei`s enlightenment experience is important and is making me go back to the original with fresh eyes. The Japanese response to O`Sensei`s words seems to be a general "I have no idea what he is talking about so I`ll just kind of ignore it." And this has majorly influenced the rest of the Aikido world. In my opinion, your attempt to analyse and explain the founder`s words in more understandable terms is something sorely needed. I sincerely hope that this is just the start of more such writings, by you and others.

Thank you,
Charles
