Re: I like this definition of ki
The thing where you said Ki was "emotion" immediately got me thinking of Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon where he teaches his student Lao.
the student attacks
"What was that? We need E-mo-tio-nal con-tent, kick me again"
the student attacks again, this time more fiercely
"I said emotional content, not anger"
I myself have never been a fan of Ki as a mystic force, but "emotional energy"? I can get behind.
