Re: Poll: How inspired do you feel these days in your aikido training?
Each training day brings an opportunity to glimpse that which is before me; tempting me, guiding me along a path newly discovered and full of wonders. I'm standing at the beginning of a path through the forest and staring at an Azalea flower and thinking how beautiful it is; then looking up to see that the path ahead is full of Nature's finest creations, all abloom. And knowing that in time, I'll be amidst it. I also understand that this is just one of many paths that I've taken. That there is no end; my path through is my Life and the Forest my playground.
