Re: Does Modern Aikido Teach Enlightenment?

I figured all of us lowly "kyu level" forumites can share a conversation where everyone can participate.

My answer is an emphatic No. Modern Aikido has in its fundamental core too many negative attributes to overcome the positive ones. Because of this, enlightenment won't be reached.

Enlightenment is a state of mind, we must plow through the negative to rise above and create the positive energy to allow all to bask in it. We are our own worst enemy.
