Right up my alley...where have I been!
I got more to say...lots but I need to understand the topic of conversation beter lest this be gone to the wind with vague tangents: idol worship or spiritual enlightenment.
Now, the modern connectation of idol runs two ways. The literal old time meaning graven image and another newer one meaning adored celebrity.
I guess the subject isn't clear. Is Bruce worried about how others judge him and "idol" worshipping vis-a-vis Aikido?
