Transcendental meditative eroticism and the unity of mind and body from Master HORA
Hello Master! Thank you for the topic explaining Zen and martial arts. I have several questions on the following topics:
1. The strategic objective of AIKIDO — is to manage the energy of your mind and body and consequently manage the energy of the mind and body of the opponent.
2. But in fact no one has achieved the level of energy control of O Sensei.
What is missing in this method and what should one focus the attention on in Aikido practice? (Explanation: AI — love, KI — energy, DO — way.) Sergey, 7 years in Aikido
"...P.2. But in fact no one has achieved the level of energy control of O Sensei"
NO ONE WILL ACHIEVE THE LEVEL OF O SENSEI. And it is also the fact. (Master HORA)
You can be close to him, you can be next to him, but no one will ever achieve his level in Aikido.
There’s only one way to understand what kind of level had O Sensei — to go ahead and outgrow him unscrupulously.
Only after you have outgrown him, it will be clear: there are lots of human hearts around, but there’s only one heart of the Master for all masters.
What I am trying to say is:
If You practice any kind of meditation (I mean techniques, because realized meditation is completely different) you should pass the first level of Buddha’s life (read 4 stages of Buddha’s life1) — meditative intellectual education, meditative enlightenment, meditative upbringing etc.
 «…First there was upbringing of kshatri, studying of philosophy, management, military science, culture etc. This is the first paragraph. Then there was yoga with ascetics for several years. This is paragraph two. And only after that — enlightenment under the tree. This is paragraph three. And — paragraph four — is a new religion, middle way».
Buddha’s Way from Master HORA (Zen-Do part II)
It does not matter if it doesn’t happen in a palace. What’s important is for you to be lucky and people who teach you to be bright and interesting. Such people are capable of igniting an inner fire of a researcher — to awaken a hunter’s potential.
Such hunter has a flair for ideas like a bloodhound; he drives the idea in as a hound, chases without falling behind. In order to train a hunter, who is after such a prey, just mental and spiritual strength is not enough. A student should have a special, unique skill, a potential — ability of meditative concentration.
