Re: More on Aikido and the Floating Bridge of Heaven

Thanks, guys. I'm just trying to articulate what I'm experiencing and the changes this training is bringing about, completely apart from martial ability.

Therefore, it might be called academic or speculative BS, like the thing about our ki being able to connect with the ki around us, and through that, with the physical things around us, so that they can actually "support" us from a distance.

That was something I began to feel very subtly and I just threw it out there with the rest--not to say it's not true, but to acknowledge that it might be so subtle as to be, ultimately, meaningless.

But maybe there is something to it.

I post a lot of things hoping someone will chime in and correct me or give me a shift of direction that I can follow.
