When I'm talking balance I'm talking centre,
A place where all can leave and all can enter;
And after much trial and error all one rehearsal,
To feel the in and out breath of the universal.
So much talk about moving weight or being weightless,
But wait, centre is the gate that is actually gateless;
There's no insistence, resistance or intent to flow,
There's only courage and the faith of truly letting go.
For then the gravity, earth energy, doesn't dissipate,
For with you in harmony it just becomes the weightless weight;
And all the energy of heaven brings with it a sense of clarity,
As heaven and earth join as one removing all disparity.
No internal, no external, for that's been transcended,
No superman, no strategic plan, nothings started or ended;
No winning or losing which to some is confusing, it's never ending;
The Tenchi infinity, pure in it's divinty, Aikido, the Art of blending.
