Budo is Love, but what does it mean?
Iki Inochi? The Universal unseen,
Budo builds life and life breathes kindness,
Iki Inichi forever and timeless.
Budo is Love so why then oppose it?
It's unopposable and true aiki shows it,
And if you think opposite to love is hate,
Then you've entered the door and missed the gateless gate.
There are no opposites but only inversions,
Logic has opposites and thus false assertions,
Leading you to a myriad of diversions,
Inverted budo carries warring aspersions.
So what is the inverse? What is it's name?
What is this devil of suffering and pain?
Inverted love takes you out of now and here,
Thus is born false budo, the budo of fear.
Fear is suspicious, fear is in a hurry,
Fear justifies it's actions with worry,
Fear is weak and thus searches for power,
Inverted budo, lost yet searching.
For it cannot forever live in the dark,
For true budo never dies so there's always that spark,
Always that knowing, that can stop you from falling,
Always that truth, always a true calling.
Always that spiritual jewel, pointing the way,
Always showing a path of peace life and play,
Always unopposing and always unopposed,
Only the gateless gate is never ever closed.
