Goodness accepts and non controls,
The work of centre, that's how it rolls,
No fighting, violence and so no glory,
Nothing harmful, no destruction, nothing gory.
Non resistance, non insistence,
Here and now has infinite distance,
You may hear this but are you near this,
No competition is clear and fearless.
Such is the jewel, sitting in calmness,
Pulsating, creating, free from harness,
The centre of the cross of aiki, floating, free,
The spark of joy living in you and me.
Under no roof, between no walls, neither in or out,
Tranquility meets, silence greets and quietness shouts,
The power of quantity eaten by quality, attachment gone,
Yet truth leaves all connected to this Aikido song.
