Re: To obtain a certain spiritual level in Aikido.

Noelle, everybody finds their own path. Meditation is not aikido and meditation is not my spiritual path. I have no interest in it. For me the human to human connection of partner practice is simultaneously a martial and a spiritual practice. For some people sweeping the floor is a spiritual practice. AFAICT there is no human endeavor that has a monopoly on it or is inherently spiritual.
