Smile Aiki Is Truely The Way

Hello everyone, this is a vey cool site. I do Aiki Ju Jutsu with a very spiritual foundation. Aikido principles are taught to us as well. For the first 6 weeks of training as a white belt, we were required to read, study, apply and become the book of Ki in Daily Life. Ki in Daily Life is a book that is highly recommended to get.Once accomplished then yellow belt was awarded,(slap outs, roll outs,etc.). This book is my 2nd Bible, Ouus!
KI IN DAILY LIFE = ISBN 0-87040-436-9
KOICHI TOHEI
KI NO KENKYUKAI H.Q.
Alos another great book is:
THE ART OF PEACE = ISBN 0-87773-851-3
MORIHEI UESHIBA ~ translated by: JOHN STEVENS
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME SHARE

Man, I thought driving 65 miles to train was tough...

Re: Aiki Is Truely The Way

Yea, that is who I am affliated with concerning aikido. I think it is importantto indentify where I am coming from as far as aikido. I try and stop by there once or twice a year when I am in town.

Right now I am Ronin!

Re: Aiki Is Truely The Way

Oh man! your on to me...gotta stop reading my post Ron! I can't get an inch of room here!

Oh By the way...welcome Sadiyq! It was rude of me not to mention that in my post!

You will find a very receptive and mature audience for discussion of aikido, aiki-jitsu, and jiujitsu arts here. Lots of perspectives and opinions from many different styles and philosophies!

Hope you jump right in and start taken randori with us!

Re: Aiki Is Truely The Way

Hi Sadyq,
Welcome to aikiweb!
I read Tohei's Aikido in Daily Life while at a friend's house on holiday in the US. My life changed from that point on..It started me on a journey that has so far lasted nearly 15 years, and I know will continue until I can't drag myself onto the mat....A good book I'd say!

Kevin, Ron and many others are like this, some of us are less so and should know better

regards,
Mark

Re: Aiki Is Truely The Way

The Law of Now

Your breath is your life force. You cannot take a breath yesterday and you cannot take a breath tomorrow. You can only take a breath NOW. Each breath you take can only take place in the present moment of now.

The breath you took yesterday at some time you survived and the breath you hope to take place sometime tomorrow may, or may not, occur.

The only moment there is, is NOW. The only breath that has any significance is the breath you are taking now.

The only time that has any significance for your life's continuance is now. Yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is a dream. There is only NOW. Now well lived in conscious choice makes the memory pleasant and the dream potentially pleasant.

What choices are you making NOW, in the present moment of Now, to ensure your memories are pleasant and your potential future is pleasant? Accept what is NOW - not what was then and what may yet be.

Your only moment is NOW - make a conscious choice NOW.
