I never knew spirit, I never knew Ki,
I never knew by not knowing I never knew me,
I thought I was a body with a name that's all you see,
Then I became a mind and an identity.
But neither mind or body can ever be me,
I am the viewer, the spirit and always free,
My place is here my home is now my life is eternity,
I'm 24/7 heart in heaven spreading peace and harmony.
I never knew Aikido could be dark and missing the light,
I never knew that only identities look to fight,
I never knew that minds believe that mind leads Ki,
If that's so then how comes their minds cannot lead me.
I never knew so many only see quantity,
Yet they are a quality and yet they don't wanna be,
Locked up in physical hiding in vanity,
Us and them, divisions, human insanity.
So if you never knew you never knew then maybe you'll never,
But never's a long time and you can't hide forever,
So pick up your sword of life and restore your Ki and health,
By cutting through your own mind and body, revealing your true self.
Revealing your ai, revealing your Ki,
Revealing your oneness, reveal and see,
Spirit guides physical abides,
From the moment where all resides,
Aikido the sea of life and it's tides,
No mind, now we see where ego hides.
