Re: Does Modern Aikido Teach Enlightenment?

The genius of o'sensei was that he "enlightened" us in bringing out what we already possess that we didn't know we inherently have (ie martial arts). You bring "it" out through practicing the art but only through long, dedicated and rigorous practice. I think you get "enlightened" when you start knowing what "it" is that we already possess that at first we didn't know we already have.
