Re: For Ted Ehara - Boundary of your aikido?

Boundless Aiki-do ... The path to power is in-yo ho. Resolving in-yo.... in you.
If I sought power, I would look for things far more cruel, selfish and immediate. Bullets are the old standby; bombs work; poisons too. Understanding in the pursuit of power is self-limiting -- it only understands greater power. The counsels of power are therefore rarely the counsels of wisdom. There are things much greater than power, and which can overcome the greatest of powers. I practice that heiho.
