Re: Article: Misogi on Several Levels by "The Grindstone"

Accepting the pain and not suffering is part of the misogi Mike. I have had similar experiences more than a few times building dojo. If you had asked, I'd have been there to help. Your dojo will be a special place, I'm sure. I look forward to feeling it's juice and leaving a bit of mine in it too. Keep the juice flowing... It'll do more for you and others than you can imagine.

Gambatte!

Thank You all.

Chuck, I believe that you would have been there to help, had I asked. Somehow, it felt like it was my responsibility, to do as much as I could figure out how; and truth be told, a weekend training with you and the fellas was a great way of you being where you could do me the most good. So thanks a lot for that. I expect I'll see Toby and the fellas along with Michael and Tarik tomorrow, so the juice will probably be running strong. Kato Sensei comes tomorrow to teach his first class here, and I've just spent much of the evening doing all my housekeeping chores.

Your ongoing moral support and friendship is a hell of a lot more important to me than any hammer swinging I might have liked.

But Churillo, him I'd have missed. Thank God for his Angels, no matter how ugly they come looking.

Mike

Re: Article: Misogi on Several Levels by "The Grindstone"

A wonderful meditation on the process. I wonder if this is what I missed in building my dojo? Mine was sort of given to me ready-made. I wound up coming round the backside to build up stuff on the fly. Or maybe, that's part of the misogi for me.

I'll be coming by to visit as soon as I can go a full two hours without trying to turn my lungs inside out coughing.
