I am not sure how to interpret the K. Ueshiba quote at all. It's tautological, so what is it meant to express?
Diane Skoss, in the article, goes on to say:
"Insights quietly blossom, are nurtured, to sprout further understandings."
which would open up a - probably very individual, possibly very complex - world of insights and understandings. Is that what K. Ueshiba means as well, and does not want to discuss?
I find it slightly sad, though of course understandable, to hint at all those insights and then sort of close the door again. Or maybe I am misunderstanding the intention of both of them?
