... It's not something in me, it's me.
I think, apart from other details, this gives me a hint, that we may talk about different aspects when referring to ki
In my case "me" is ki
+body+mind+... connected together, affecting each other and so on. "Me" is ki
, alltogether. And we often use the word kimochi
, which means feeling, to describe "how we are" during waza
itself is "something in me":
Just this weekend at a seminar we tried to have our ki
in our fingertips (instead of our palms). Or we try to pack ki
in the hara/tanden. And during the solo exercises I do, part of which are connected to a certain form of qi gong, I move the ki
through my body from one part to another.
