sleep + aikido == good.

Oh, right. My spiritual practice. Heh. My bad. It really does make a difference. I'll be getting back to that now.

It's really about me and what I do. We talk about events that throw us off-balance, but events don't throw me off-balance, I do. Something happens, and I make my choices, with some degree of awareness, according to who I am at the time. Sometimes I choose to be uncentered, sometimes it just happens, and sometimes I think I just need something and have gone out of the way to make difficulty for myself as a roundabout way to get from point A to point B, by being startled back into centeredness.

Less thinking, more being.
