Re: Does Modern Aikido Teach Enlightenment?
I have only skimmed over the four pages of this thread, so I apologize in advance if I am restating something.
The title of this thread is more than just a question about modern aikido; it is also an assertion that aikido did, at one point, teach enlightenment. And I'm not sure I buy that. I think we can find enlightenment in anything. Why would aikido be any better suited to the pursuit of enlightenment than building boats, playing the piano, or long-distance running?
I think aikido is, and always has been, what we make of it.
