Re: Article: Mediating Reality, Connecting with the World by "The Mirror"

Hey Janet! I finally got to read your article.

I came to aikido seeking the spiritual and looking for some kind of transformative experience, what I got was something completely different. Practicing aikido has forced me to look at an aspect of myself that I was ignoring or didn't consider that important -- my body.As I result so I can train better and more intensely I choose to workout and get in shape, and I'm now a much more healthy person. Being physical, learning to trust my body, practicing aikido in a very physical way is the spirituality for me. I've yet and don't seek that transformative experience anymore.
