The Music of the Uchi-Deshi

There was Ueshiba, the One, who in Aiki-world is called O'Sensei; and he made first the Uchi-Deshi, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made. And he spoke to them, propounding to them themes of Ki extension; and they trained before him, and he was glad. But for a long while they trained only each alone, or but a few together, while the rest watched; for each comprehended only that part of the mind of the O'Sensei from which he came, and in the understanding of their brethren they grew but slowly. Yet ever as they trained they came to deeper understanding of budo, and increased in unison and harmony."

Bugger me side way with a rake, Does it mean that in fact we are all midgets with large hairy feet?


One Ringeck to bring them all and in darkness bind them,
In the Land of Windsor where phlip phlop live.
