Whether you came to practice Aikido for the exercise, the martial arts, or just to be in a social situation .... trying to understand the driving forces within Aikido is the ability to come to terms with your own mind/life as well as get a handle on what goes on around you.
I have had a couple of years off to sit, to write, to think .... not everyone gets that chance, or knows what to do themselves given that opportunity.
What we have here is a failure to communicate ...
The information is coming into the brain, and we are discussing using our physical practice of bringing about harmony by using the interaction of physical force ... some interaction beyond what is needed driven by our own emotional engine?
Well, there are a variety of techniques for clearing the mind, finding balance, and understanding you must do what your true heart tells you while are accepting the consequences. Problem is .... working your job to make a living, practicing Aikido as a hobby, and trying to make sense out of the world using Aikido as a tool is not the only one way to get this balance.
I see we have veered from "Protection of Some", or "protection of all" into the wild regions of selfconsciousness, and understanding the human condition ... nearly bordering upon the spiritual?
Technique for handling the situation?
Interaction with your friends, family, even some strangers, and evaluate the information. Apply it. Sort out the problems in your mind, problems in your life ... in short ... get a grip, and move on.
Simple technique ..... dealing with one problem at a time, don't make more problems, and you did the best you could with what little brains you have, so move on.
'course the favorite saying of anyone that serves in the armed forces is "...kill 'em all and let God sort'em out" might apply to calming the immediate turmoil, but we are just kidding in the real sense of what to do ... we are kidding ... guys ... aren't we?
I was kidding. They weren't.
