In General Capacity, space and flow. Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Aikido's a capacity, a space and a flow,
All thoughts of physical don't exist, so let go;
Within, without, is one no doubt,
Silent and quiet, the light shines out.

Capacity, nothingness, in which to stand,
From which comes faith, the only hand,
Which holds within it both space and time,
And harmonizes as is Gods plan.

The space, the love joins in and Kokyu is born,
Devoid of hatred, intention, control or scorn,
The heavens opening, the heavens gate,
Pass through, learn kokyu before it's too late.

And let the polished spirit, the kindness flow,
Interfere not for it knows where to go,
8 directions, five circles, enjoy the ride,
No need to escape or run or fight or even hide.

And all returns to peace,
The enemy healed and now released,
Injured bird healed and now set free,
The way of Aikido, are you ready?

In General They Come... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

They come I move, they stop I move,
They fight I move, I have nothing to prove,

I turn they turn, I turn they follow,
No internal, no external, for all is hollow,

"How so?" they shout, "What tricks do you know?"
No tricks, life turns, a natural flow,

They come again grabbing, say my arm is like steel,
But there is no arm, it's just calmness they feel,

So they try intention to disrupt my center,
I remain untroubled for they're free to enter,

Then one pushes and strains, till it's bad for his health,
I look with compassion asking "why do you push yourself?"

Confused yet astounded they ask "Aikido? Is this it?"
I smile, they leave, I turn, I sit.

In General Be Graceful Entry Tools Rate This Entry

The sound of silence brings a peace of mind,
The sound of stillness leaves all thoughts behind,
The sound of serenity opens up the space,
The sound of tranquility, a noble place.

Life and Ki flow all powerful yet harmless,
The sound of life and self, the sound of calmness,
Voices raised against the truth are charmless,
And fade away into the void....karma...bless.

As mother nature shows the joys of life,
As heaven opens showing how to end strife,
As Saints and Buddhas smile the universe shakes,
As the sleeping nature stirs and all awakes.

The sword appears and brings a moving peace,
The holy staff spins and all joys increase,
The bowl appears and it reflects God's will,
The fan removes the clouds, a breath of heavens mill.

Fudoshin, immovable yet mobile pierces time,
Mushin from the void to heaven, bright, devine,
Senshin, Zanshin, meeting, embracing all as one,
Shoshin, center, inside is outside, the circle has won.
