Thanks for your thoughts, Lee,
No, they're definitely not too deep for this forum. Participants are welcome to post any form of creativity -- especially those connected to how your style "moves" your soul. Many martial artists either don't look beyond the physicality of their movements or are timid amout discussing the spiritual connection.
Yes, after I posted the topic, I noticed the discussion on the other forum ... all things are related, especially those that may "dance" the same matrix!

"A good soul will perform good kata, even in a flawed body. A flawed soul will never be able to perform good kata, even in perfect body."
What a wonderful statement! When I was younger, I longed to be a jazz dancer and took all kinds of classes at the local college (with women who were in their teens, compared to my early 30s). At the time, I didn't see that I just didn't have the body/ movements and that I started way too late for a dancer.
My instructor gently took me aside privately and pointed out my shortcomings; however, during class, she told all the students to emulate the heart and soul I put into my training. I didn't get what she meant at the time, but karate-do has taught me well.
I look forward to more of your "heady" thoughts.
