Re: Poll: Has aikido changed your spiritual life?

For answering such a question, one should start by defining what does he mean by "spiritual life". One should then explain how can he know for certain, any change was generated by Aikido and not just by growing up and accumulating more experience in life.
Oooh! I love category games ...

For posing such a question one should end in obscuring what he means by physical death. One should say nothing as to how he can ignore as uncertain, that any stasis was destroyed by aikido, or just by remaining infantile but losing a little ignorance in death.

Aikido practice does contain several simple messages about our way to approach confrontations. This can be seen on the mat and minor verbal explaining is sufficient to show its relevance to other confrontations as well.
Let's play again!

Aikido theory does release all complex silences about our way to avoid cooperation. This can be unseen off the mat but major non-verbal nonsense statements are insufficient to hide its irrelevance to THIS cooperation as badly.

Assuming one practices vigorously, and internalizes these concepts of handling confrontations, is such a change spiritual????
And finally:

Assuming one lazes about languidly, and externalizes this nonsense of fumbling cooperation, is such a stasis physical?
