Re: Conformity and the Bicycle Lesson

Hi Ross. I'm not so convinced about conformity being positive. Questioning is always better than unquestioning so I think we have a responsibility to inform ourselves first.

As well as conform you also used the word reformed. Yes we are here to be challenged but I wonder if we are here to be reformed or if we are here to reform ourselves.

By the way I wrote a couple of blog posts about aikido and bicycles myself. irimi and cycles and aikido against a bicycle part 2.

I like your story of your son on his bike. Its truth resonates with all of us who are parents.

Regards,

Niall

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