I enter with universal love, pure power, harmless,
Introducing a heavenly calmness,
No physical space, time, place or energy,
No illusion, shin no budo, so no enemy.
For when all that is gone what remains in it's place?
But heavenly motion supported by grace,
When all is gone what is there left to see?
The way of the awakened, the way of aiki.
And as I look and listen the echoes I hear,
Of beings trapped in karma, unawakened, in fear,
Projecting illusions and living a false hell,
It's making me depressed now, sadness starts to swell.
How to face such a scene I am faced with the infernal,
Then God whispers to me, "Hope springs eternal".
Quietness descends, a flash of lightning and silence,
The echoes turn to joy as they realize non-violence.
The flowers start to sing along with the trees,
The rivers glisten as they listen to mother natures breeze,
Non-opposition, non-aggression, non -disturbance, harmony,
I re-enter with Kokyu, the universe is me.
