Re: Fear in Aikido

Acknowledging somewhat the dangers of reductionism (although I hasten to point out that everything is rightfully subject to certain amounts of reductionism), I think the problem is the overwide use of the term "fear". Still, there's one related use of "fear" that I constantly refer to and which I find often useful in decision-making involving people:

People decide to do things either out of fear or out of love; most people do most things out of fear.
