Re: The Experience of Aikido

I have been curious lately about something Sugano Sensei said a while back in Australia. He said that while doing Aikido we should not just plainly be doing the physical movement but experiencing it as well (something akin to how when reading a book one does not just read the words but also experiences the overall narative).

I am curious to know how other people would interpret this and personally "experience" Aikido.
As far as I remember sensei teaching, he could refer to experience 'being between heaven and earth' every time you do a technique. I'd say it is quite difficult.
