Doka of the Day - December 19, 2014
This world is built up
Of living-life (iki-inochi) of the breath of life (iki-inichi) and the
saving power of the Universal (iki-inochi),
All spinning and flourishing
The jewel-like Aiki of the Spirit (tama-no-aiki).

                              - Morihei Ueshiba
