In General Mother Aikido Entry Tools Rate This Entry

In the Martial Arts world people look to and admire each other,
The world of fighting arts where all compete as brother to brother,
Through testing and besting, losing, improving all done under one cover,
They're all martial arts for sisters and brothers but Aikido is the Mother.

From the Aikido did the rest form,
From Aikido were those babies born,
From Aikido all martial arts sprang,
And sibling rivalries' where competition all began.

So recently O'Sensei realized and he brought back the way,
He brought back the Mother for the children had all gone astray,
Many came home from where they were and like naughty kids began to play,
But met with patience for Mother knew, in time, they'd understand one day.

Meanwhile some still resist and try to make it what it's not,
Some try to understand and those who do learn quite a lot,
Beyond the trips and traps of physical thinking, like one great plot,
Designed to capture you, to lose yourself and be what you're not.

Lies Aikido, the realm of free spirit and soul and heart,
Invincible yet not of controlling, opposing or stop and start,
Unholding, unlabelled, unclosed, an open gracious art,
From which the universe began, oneness, all parts yet one part.

So feel the stillness from center, let no uneasiness enter or distract you,
Then from the center line view through calmness, you'll find what to do,
And from your hara embrace from now and feel love pouring through,

The wind through the valleys and the hills blows free,
Free as a bird as the spirit in me,
The light shines through the darkness and reaches,
Illuminating all you need to learn and thus teaches;

All perfect, all there, coloured by fear and mind emotions,
Removed by compassion all clears revealing life's oceans,
As life dances and flows and in it that same light glistens,
Can you hear the sound of innocence, shhhhhh listen.

Calmness awakes, the earth quakes, negativity runs for the hills,
The breath of infinite out and intakes as chaos sinks and stills,
And through the void and the gateless gate the golden light reveals,
Kiatsu in form, Aikido, the cure for all mans ills..........Shhhhhhhhhhh.

In General Beyond the sounds of the Kotadama Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Beyond the sounds lies the end of all fight,
Beyond the sounds is not sound but pure light,
Beyond the sounds is the end of all violence,
Beyond the sounds is the sound of silence.

As yesterday I heard the sound of 'u' (ooh)
The void, the place of no thought and no you,
But from nothingness something became true,
As truth was revealed as the light shone through.

As yesterday I heard the sound of 'o'
Time seemed to stop and I froze, temporarily though,
As all manifested in form like a glow,
Time disappeared and yet now remained so.

As yesterday I heard the sound of ah,
All was near no matter how far,
All was embraced and all understood,
All was o.k. in fact all was good.

As yesterday I heard the sound of 'i' (ee)
Through space and clearness I could now see,
Spirit awakened and joined in with me,
Spirit in joy was immaculate and free.

Then as I floated beyond and above,
The whole universe became the universe of love,
No sounds, quiet motion, calm flow and still center,
Both inside and outside allowed peace to enter.

The birds started singing, the clouds cried with joy,
The seas and the oceans at one became free,
The heavenly gates released holiness to employ,
True essence, true nature, true harmony, Aiki.
