Re: How do we learn, an Aiki Perspective

Thank you Francis. Great article as usual. Finding a good teacher is perhaps more important than the budo we choose. And all of us have the aptitude and talent to be good human beings.

For your point about effort and perseverence we each have our own decisions to make about sacrifice and about the balance in our lives. But we can all treat each hour or day or week or month as precious and train as sincerely as we can in that moment.

And there is another nuance there. The journey, really, is the destination. So we just have to keep walking.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
