how do you find an enlightened teacher? how do know if that person is enlightened? how does one wolf know another? and if you are a wolf, why would you need another wolf to tell you that you are a wolf? and how do you study zen? is it like study a donut? does the donut define by the hole or there is really not a donut which is in my case, because i just ate the last one?
Dear Phi,
Do you share not only your donuts with me but also your warped sense of humour as well?I nearly fell off my rocking chair reading the above.I guess posts like yours either deflates or enhances some of the esoteric stuff from other contributors.

Re: The Mental Side of Aikido?

Mmmm. Felt that Joe. Would you like relish with the burgers? In fact if you kept the burger as your center, lowereed the plate of chips to earth whilst bringing the coke up the others center line and then pouring it over and behind their shoulder that would make for a nice tenchi nage......all done with relish of course.

Peace. G.

?Or maybe the guys would extend their Ki and hope that the Ki extension would shift the stuff, while they took up sensible things like guzzling Hamburgers/Doughnuts and quaffing crates of beer?.Please extend your Ki and send me a Double Cheeseburger, french fries, Coke [Giant sized] .
Joe, do you not know that those things will block your Ki flow? as someone who cares deeply for fellow aikidoka, i took upon myself to consume all those things in order to save you and others from a terrible ki cramp. i am going send you a mental image of my consuming stuffs.
