Peter, I still think fondly of the time we spent together in Japan. I hope to return someday, and maybe share a good meal and some training (well, maybe the other way around
Thank you for your answer! I reread that entire thread upon thinking of it here, and I do so at least once a year. When I saw the "usual suspect" mentioned here, my thoughts, as always, returned to that thread. Now I have yet another post to add to my memories!
I think that in both kotodama and when you see pentacostals speaking in tongues, the key things are intent and belief. You may not *know* the meaning, yet, what you believe and what you intend are most crucial. That is the only sense I can make of either speaking in tongues, or kotodama, in any case, having done the one in a past life (if you know what I mean).
Well, I haven't stayed on topic here, so I shall crawl back into a network device somewhere in the ether and be quiet for a while.
