Morihei Ueshiba is a Master of Aikido translated as The Art of Peace as well as it's creator and remains the most profound martial arts teacher known.
The Art of Peace contains quotations that have been compiled from his collected talks, poems, and calligraphy by his students. The great Masters refrain from writing books, preferring to speak from the moment as they feel it is up to their students to listen carefully and discern what their master is saying and then pass it on.
And so I have r Morihei Ueshiba is a Master of Aikido translated as The Art of Peace as well as it's creator and remains the most profound martial arts teacher known. And so I have read this book, inhaled it's lessons and beauty, and hope to pass it on to the ones who read this review. Morihei, though a master of martial arts, understood that there is war, however continued fighting - with others, ourselves, and fighting the environment instead of striving to maintain a partnership- leads to the destruction of the Earth and ourselves.
Only by looking inward can we achieve enlightenment and true peace, and in this book we are given these keys to harmony and true peace. The path to being a great warrior lies in not fighting and destruction, but creation and tolerance.
By following his instructions we see that everything on this planet, trees, stones, water, air, and the people we meet on our journey are our teachers; we need only to silence the tangents of the world and our destructive selves to hear their words. From our birth til our passing from this world to the next we never stop learning and when we find ourselves short tempered, depressed, angry, or ill-natured it is only because we have strayed from the path of peace and have failed to listen to the words of Nature and the Universe.
In all things their must be a balance.
In today's world the balance is askew leaning more towards destruction and violence and we must seek equilibrium from within. I can not stress the importance of this book and I myself will be carrying it with me everywhere I go as a constant guide and reminder of our true purpose here on earth.
The path of the greatest warriors are paths of peace, compassion, tolerance, and love. There is an art of war, yes, but the most beautiful art is the art of peace. It is in heaven, it is in earth, it is inside us. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing. Defeat means to defeat the mind of contention that we harbor within.

Although I can't lift a suitcase Morihei Ueshiba's definition of someone strong enough to practice Aikido , I still observe lots to learn from a great teacher. Oct 16, k.
I hope to revisit this little book often. I found that the passages toward the end resonated with me the most. That the Path is the responsibility of the individual, the focus on mastering one's own self, and also finding the connection in all things.
Jul 30, Anne Marie added it. Is great even just to open at any page randomly each day and meditate on what you find there. Translation of the material was provided by John Stevens: Morihei Ueshiba. Morihei understood that continued fighting — with others, with ourselves, and with the environment — will ruin the earth…. What we need now are techniques of harmony, not those of contention.
The wisdom is essentially timeless because the ideas are a philosophy on life, a way of living in harmony with the universe, not simply a series of techniques to throw an opponent across the room. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead. The further you progress the fewer teachings there are.
The Great Path is really No Path.
On the other hand, if the intent of not providing the source information was to compel the reader to go on a journey of discovery, then I would say that the aim was successful because I will certainly be reading other books on the philosophy of Morihei Ueshiba. Apr 20, Biniam Biniam rated it it was amazing Shelves: The moral standpoint of martial art of aikido sought the enlightenment of the individual and caring mostly not about politics.
In art of Aikido, the focus is on the cultivation of the mind and behavior patterns consistent with spiritual goals. Moral questions on violence The samurai is handed down to us as a symbol of the Japanese warrior tradition and although he greatly from its weste The Art of Peace is a "spiritual technology", which allowed individual persons to better cope with THEIR life.
Moral questions on violence The samurai is handed down to us as a symbol of the Japanese warrior tradition and although he greatly from its western counterpart, the medieval knight, is different than martial art of aikido , so it calls its mention an adventurous Image of daring and courage in us.
Its about the Art of Peace. Which peace is an active quality. Can you see an enemy in the face and remain in peace? Biniam Yibaleh Jun 05, Tanvika rated it it was amazing. Very interesting book on the traits of a warrior to emerge victorious over himself. Martial arts like aikido here is used to create a mind- body balance, movement like water, rain,birds etc very much inspired from the way of Zen.
I think these virtues of calm, fearlessness, endurance, rhythm can be useful in everyday life as well. May 06, Dania rated it it was amazing. Aug 28, Morgan rated it it was amazing. I don't know really anything about this book or the writer, just saw this in the house and thought it would be a nice quick read, I actually really liked it and thought it was motivational at times. Aug 29, Ryan rated it really liked it Shelves: Labeling myself as an atheist was primarily politically motivated, an easy way to identify myself as an oppositionist of organized religion.
That remains, to this day, a much more accurate descriptor for how I see myself and my place in the world — through a constructive, rather than destructive, lens. The real way of the warrior is based on compassion, wisdom, fearlessness, and love of nature. So taught the great Morihei Ueshiba — , founder of the Japanese martial art of Aikido.

A CD of the book, read in a clear, calm voice, is also a very nice inclusion. It is an important collection for the reflective artist, and practically applicable to those intent on living a grounded, sensitive life. Philosophy Sports Religion Category: Philosophy Sports Religion.
