I got what looks like a promising book out of the library today. It's called The Spiritual Teachings of the Tao by Mark Forstater. I've dabbled with other books about Taoism, such as the Tao of Pooh & the Te of Piglet. For some reason today, the opening chapter of this book made a lot of sense.
Studying shiatsu & aikido seem to me to come under the umbrella of Taoism really. I guess I haven't previously thought that. How can I get a day job that fits in with that? Or is that the hard part?? In aikido, we try to bring the positivity we practice on the mat off into every day life.
Hmm, this is not a clear thought process at the moment, so I think I'll write more when I've done more thinking!
I'm curious if any other shiatsu practioners or students feel this way. Just makes sense to me at the moment...
