Re: Spiritual

To add a little twist to this thread here's a video remix of a Phil Collins tune. A hard hitting spiritual message......just like Aikido.... Universal....

Re: Spiritual

In conclusion here's the scene as I see it. Aikido of O'Sensei has been beset from day one by two factors as is usual for most 'enlightened' leaders. The factors of spiritual avoidance and spiritual denial.

That's the simplicity.

Avoid spiritual and you are avoiding Aikido, avoiding yourself, avoiding truth. Then you are left with only a substitute art.

Peace.G.

Re: Spiritual

Sounds a bit intolerant which in itself is not spiritual.

Is 'intolerant' not spiritual? Really?

Does a zen practitioner tolerate daydreaming? Does non resistance tolerate resistance?

Spiritual sees what is despite the illusion and thus transcends the mind. That mind is thus not tolerated and goes quiet.

Spiritual discipline. Spiritual applies and follows principles of spirit but as it can't be 'explained' by logical mind embued and acting only on physical perception the person then has to call it 'feeling'.

Correct feeling tolerates no other feeling yet at the same time is aware of all incorrect feeling. No denial, just what is.

Peace.G.

Dear Graham,
Not being aPhil Collins fan[he cannot sing for toffee ]I think that his singing in itself might start a revolution.What a dirge. Rather listen to Pinky and Perky. Cheers, Joe.

Dear Joe, your comments on Phil Collins says all I need to know about you and music.

I prefered Bill and Ben myself.

Peace.G.
