Re: Poll: Has aikido changed your spiritual life?

Aikido itself has not affected my spiritual life. It is a martial art. When I go to the dojo, I don't feel like I'm communing with nature or studying the human spirit. I feel like I'm learning how to move in certain ways that allow me to exercise control over another human body.
I to feel as though aikido is an exercise in body mechanics but for me that spiritual side is more and more ever-present.
