Re: Long road vs short road to ki power (aiki, internal strength...)

To torture the metaphor, another problem is that many people are so comfortable in the maze that they wouldn't change their current direction even if they SAW the cheese - AND - I truly believe that what they think is the cheese is just crumbs... People keep setting the bar so low and saying yo have to be realistic about what *you* can do. If the student cannot pass the teachers then the art dies. period.
