Re: Morihei Ueshiba's Use of the Term "Aiki"

I've been working on getting through the translations of takemusu Aiki on Aikido Journal. I've read them and reread them. It becomes clear very quickly, that Ueshiba had a very large world of imagery, history, and legend that he was working with. It's very hard to get through this material because I constantly find myself having to look up what the image/legend he was pointing to means.

He was a complex fellow.

Thanks for the translation Jun!
