Re: Aikido: The Way of Avoidance
When I put things in a blender (e.g. milk, ice cream, some vanilla extract, maybe a little dark chocolate...mmmm), they don't avoid each other or make room for each other. They exchange properties to make a greater whole (and a great milkshake!). When I "blend" with a partner, I mix whatever he/she brings to the interaction with what I bring to the interaction. There is no avoidance in blending.
