The truth of Aikido, priciples creating a path,
First you try then you apply then yoy relax and laugh;
No wasted energy, no interfering mind,
No more false views to follow, no more being blind.
And as you smile and sit whilst your body is standing,
'Attacked' by enemies all about,
They come for the lessons you're handing out,
They take them away like a puzzle to solve,
You smile and watch their delusions dissolve,
So every time they lost they won,
For they left with some light and heavenly sun.
For we are manifestations from now yet we meet here,
Thus we enter the center to learn understanding so that all may be clear,
Then when we make it we find at the center theres peace, silence! but no fear,
What's this? Love and goodness join you, and now becomes here.
Then you find they are active and in comes life and you feel the flow,
Your spirit awakens and with faith sees clearly what to do and where to go;
The heavens surround you here on earth breathing, space, and kokyo,
Just you, God, and life, in harmony, wow where did the mind go???
No more intention, or even desire and not even any starts,
No begiinings or ends but only the blending and of joining with everyones hearts,
Ans the motion of grace non disturbing, divine, a universal dance,
Where all souls join as one! soul brothers and sisters, divine motion yet one stance.
And therein lies the lessen of Aikido, completion!!! that's the message to send,
Foe all are trying to reach completion yet they think that's the end:
But it's merely the point where all is aligned, so now now you know,
This isn't an end it's just the beginning of the birth of truth, an infinite flow.
