If two masters (in Aikido) face each others, there shall be no fight, because nobody attacks! ~ Morihei Ueshiba ... aus: C2-wiki
"Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment." ~ Morihei Ueshiba
„Gewalt mit Gegengewalt zu begegnen ist immer destruktiv: Der Weg der Harmonie besteht darin, sich und andere von Hass freizumachen.“ ~ Morihei Ueshiba http://www.aikido-werl.de/category/zitate/
It is bad when one thing becomes two. One should not look for anything else in the Way of the Samurai. It is the same for anything that is called a Way. Therefore, it is inconsistent to hear something of the Way of Confucius or the Way of the Buddha, and say that this is the Way of the Samurai. If one understands things in this manner, he should be able to hear about all Ways and be more and more in accord with his own.
