I think you are already on your way in repaying those that have come before you by helping those here that are after you. I would like to think those that you owe so much would want you to transmit the correct teachings so that they can be passed on to others in a complete state and not broken and scattered.

I for one thank you for giving and sharing your insight here on the boards.

Without communication we are practicing a soon to be dead art. What is the difference between your thoughts here or in email than someone who has been there and goes back to their respective homesteads and gives their thoughts on what they have learned?

Money and instruction are funny things. I will probably post later on that.

Transmission of thoughts verbally from one person to another always stands the chance of the receiver not getting the real meaning. That is what life is about. If Soke was afraid that would happen then only he would teach and no other. He has to trust that what he is giving will be taken in the way he means for it and passed on in the same manner. It helps when you have a check and balance of others who have received the same instruction and can, as a group, come to the same conclusion. I would hope that if there was one in the group who has taken the meaning out of context then what was originally meant, that the others would call them on it and correct it.

Do not be so afraid of letting others know what you have learned. If you question yourself than lean on Soke or others to help clarify. You have an opportunity that 98% of the rest of us outside of Japan will never experience. Because of Sokes age I, as a new comer, have already missed the opportunity to train with Soke outside of Japan. I believe his time with others will become more restrictive as he gets older. So enjoy what you are getting and continue giving insight to those of us who will not get a chance to have the same communication with the master of this wonderful art.

Hope that helps in some way.

Others of us have been discussing this as well, Danny. Please address this problem with the utmost expediency.

Hi. I would like to second Kaizen's sentiments: I imagine that being an accountable communicator along with a positive catalyst would be a difficult, but great thing. A virus in deed. Thanks.

Ok...sorry for going in the wrong direction with your post.

Have not been in the art long enough to notice a change...but for you I am sure it is for the better.

Keep going.
