Hello Allen,

Absolutely. However, you also have readers and they bring different experiences to what you write, which is one of the great advantages of forums like Aikiweb. When I read your OP, I immediately thought of St Paul's letters, for he did not believe that eros, agape, etc were manifestations of a single reality.

Will you be soon further elucidating your views on O-sensei and Omoto? You've spoiled me you know.
Well, I would like to wait until I have had chance to penetrate Reikai Monogatari in more depth than I have done so far. O Sensei was present on some occasions when Deguchi dictated this and I he gather read and annotated parts of the work.
