Aikido. I started to train; I found myself looking for a way to centre myself. To be present in daily life. Not in a daze or dreaming of the past or future. To feel the air on skin, to hear the drop of rain, the stillness in movement, the sounds and sights of the world without doubts or illusions of what is enough. What I have missed because I was not here. Am I near my goal? Perhaps it will take a lot more discoveries to get here. But even just learning and understanding, application or should I say auto application is what I am looking into, though not to forget the introspection. Aikido is a part of a whole for me, I learn and apply it to many other things and apply many other things to aikido. It is independent but not separate to life as a whole. I am Here.
