Re: Poll: How spiritual is aikido to you?

I heard once:

"We are either physical beings having a spiritual experience or spiritual beings having a physical experience."

I tend to hold with the latter, hence, I feel that Aikido (and everything else I do throughout the day) is of critical spiritual importance.

I agree with O-Sensei that Aikido is a prayer performed with the body.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration...

ART! -
