Re: Breaking the will of the ego.
maybe once a year we both enjoy a course in a dojo where the direction is very clear but the atmosphere free and caring, and where no wills are broken.
Surrendering the ego in practice is quite another thing than breaking the will through rules.
I think I would benefit more from your recent writing if it were more personal and less abstract and preachy. What is your concrete experience with all this stuff you write about? How has it moved you so much that you feel the need to relate it?
I look forward to training with you again some time next year, until then all the best
