Re: why do people search outside Aikido for IS?

It has been said: practise and practise hard, do not judge others or speak bad of other teachers.

Everybody is on their own path to find their Way. It is a valid question to ask why someone would search outside Aikido for IS. One might expect a true/sincere answer without judgement. There is nothing to gain only to loose here...

Earlier I have said that people do not know what they are looking for...nobody really responded to that.

When people start to look (read/think/feel) around because of these discussions that is just great. They might learn what they are really looking for, or find that they have already found it.

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
