SOULFOOD: Quotes, Essays, Posts and Stories

Koichi Tohei Sensei's Shokushu (Ki Sayings)

There's so much knowledge and wisdom out there, scattered all over the literary world.
I collect and keep those little jewels, for my own joy and enlightenment, and I'll post them for yours. The site will fill up as I go along, and you'll find something new every now and then ;-)
It's entirely my own selection, so please grant me some subjectivity.

Not all of the topics are related to Ki-Aikido, some not even to Aikido. But even if not, they're all about life and living, harmony and peace, though. I hope you'll enjoy, smile, and reflect.
