Awasekagami

This came up in an interview with the founder ( http://members.aikidojournal.com/pri...hei-ueshiba-2/ )

Quote:
Q. Is the sword used in Aikido?
A. Yes, it is. A sword is opposing mirrors (awasekagami) of Heaven. It represents an act of celebration.
What does the expression Awasekagami - opposing mirrors means?
