Is this Zen or Aikido? Mr Lynn, you were talking about reacting and responding and to understand your laconic posts I had to read article by a Zen teacher
The conciseness of my response was only to thank you for the resource. No need for the mind to look further.
The Omoto philosphy that inspire O'sensei stressed the harmonizing of dualistic thinking. IMHO, many mystics and masters experienced the same thing but labeled it differently.
Read "Zen and Aikido" by Kamata and Shimizu published by Aiki News 1984. Much better than I can say, especially being so "laconic" in my replies.
