Re: Yurusu, An Aiki Perspective

this was the sentiment i wanted to express when there was a discussion on here about someone who had been cast out of aikido many years ago, and many were adamant in NOT forgiving this person.
it seems, then, that there are various levels of difficulty in forgiving based on the wrong committed. so my item for pondering: how to apply this sentiment to all scenarios; does group-think change people's ability to forgive? (eg. if one perceives that forgiving someone would not be backed by the bigger community, how does the individual proceed?....what does this say?)

just thoughts..
