Re: What Aikido waza are you practicing for bad guys?

In meditation, there is practice, and nonpractice, right? Mahayana Buddhism is considered to have some authority, and it teaches both a contemplative style, where one really wrestles with some mental issue or condition. And a type of "calm abiding" meditation, where one transcends their thoughts and realizes "they" (the thoughts) are not "you".

I wouldn't argue against any type of meditation. Unless you are tuning into "the voices", they are all healthy. Hopefully I haven't, at least. Remind me what we were arguing about then, and I'll see if it still makes sense. Something about hurting people, maybe?
