Wisdom from Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido - "The Way (道) of Harmonious (合) Spirit/Energy (気)" "The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter. All things, material and spiritual, originate from one Source and are related as if they were one family. The past, present, and future are all contained in the life force.
