Erik, unfortunately my philosophies are pretty much set now; maybe it is my onset to middle age.*
Only occasionally do I want to venture into other ideas in order to give my brain something to do., though any novel/new ideas would be worth reflecting on.
*I've heard it said that middles age is where your narrow waist and broad mind swap places.
For what it's worth, I didn't intend to insult you. My apologies if I did.
I was just whining about my situation which is being in a dojo that is becoming almost all philosophy and 0.00 technique. I would like to transfer some of that philosophy in exchange for some technique.
