"The further you progress, the fewer teachings there are."

O Sensei Morihei Ueshiba

Reflect on the quote and feel how it resonates with you. I experienced this with my sensei, as he led me through Aikido. There will come a time when things will be unsaid. The realisation of what is necessary and expected remains ever present. Some may say this is a "you should know better" stage.

On one level, when things become unsaid, it is because more is expected, and there is recognition that the lessons have transcended onto an internal dimension. For the young in Aikido, it may be far ahead; but it is a thought worth reflecting at this moment.

In harmony
Rafael Oei Sensei.
