One out, all out, this is the spiritual shout,
Let me introduce you to what I'm taliking about,
One out, all out, All for one, one for all;
Organic, organisms, organize, oneness is natural.
One out , all out, peace is completeness,
What can defeat this? Fighters are defeatist,
Warrior spirit, at home in serenity,
Empty of emnity, no sympathy, pure empathy.
When one point is in, then so is Ki flowing,
So is weight underside, relaxing and knowing,
When one is out so are all, nothing left but a wall,
One in all in, then there is no wall at all.
So one out, all out, do you have your centre?
Because without all stays out for nothing good can enter,
Kokyu is the breath of life that leads to co-existence,
No control, no domination, Gods breath, divine consistence..
No Kokyu, no divine breath, no space below or above,
No kokyu, heaven, no universal love.
No center line, no goodness, no axis around which things turn,
Thus no neutral, no warmness, only freezing or burn.
So one in all in, that's the spiritual calling,
Aikido the art of building, not the art of falling,
And one out, all out, that's the spiritual warning,
Is it a dark day ahead for you or is a new day dawning?
