Re: How is aikido related to your spiritual path?
Heck, I don't know where my spiritual path will take me. But I know aikido has touched me in a way that karate never did, or an awful lot of stuff in life that hasn't either. Maybe it's the connection that's different to sparring with an opponent, or struggling with tough decisions in life.
I think it has helped me realise I am on a journey, & to take it one step at a time. I need to learn how to be all I can be.
