We're talking about Aikido as a spiritual practice. If that means anything at all, it means helping people develop such traits as self honesty.
So how does telling them to move "with correct feeling" help them do that?
Semantic debates bore me. Help me improve my Aikido, or help me teach Aikido more effectively.
Perhaps that is the whole spiritual practice: finding what what works for us and what doesn't, with out blame and recrimination.
