Book Review-The Art Of Peace By Morihei Ueshiba & Translated and Edited By John Stevens

The Art of Peace is 186 pages of wisdom by Morihei Ueshiba. He lived from 1883 until 1969 and was the founder of the Japanese martial art Aikido. The book includes one wise nugget of philosophy per page. The writings on each page are short, but they need to be mentally digested slowly in order to fully understand the meaning. The knowledge in this book can be used not only in martial arts training, but also in daily life. The Art of Peace is a fantastic book that will assist in self-improvement.

 

Below are three examples of writing from the book The Art of Peace by Morihei Ueshiba:

 

Iron is Full of impurities that weaken it; through forging, it becomes steel and is transformed into a razor-sharp sword. Human beings develop in the same fashion.

 

Do not fail
To learn from
The pure voice of an
Ever-flowing mountain stream
Splashing over the rocks.

 

Ultimately, You Must Forget about technique. The further you progress, the fewer teachings there are. The Great Path is really No Path.
