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 Shelves: 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. As the world fills up with more things to do, more places to go, more stuff to have, I find myself looking to do less, own less, be less — to get more from less. If my life over the first forty years was about acquiring, the past five have been more about curating what surrounds me so that I might reduce my physical, emotional, and spiritual clutter and create more space for calm, peace, and balance.
I know I will. Oct 30, Edilson rated it it was amazing. Those who seek competition are making a grave mistake. To smash, injure or destroy is the worst sin a human being can commit. Mar 14, Geraldo Nogueira rated it really liked it. I confess that I was interested in the book because The Walking Dead. I didn't know about it before. As the name implies, the book tries to teach the reader The Path, everything regarding balance, non-violence, to be grateful for all hard comings we all experience, because it makes you stronger.
It's the sort of book you always come back and get reminded of a positive perspective of life. Dec 06, Jake rated it really liked it Shelves: Deep read. I got a lot out of it and many of the principles are similar to Christianity.
Others made me consider how I move forward in my own battlefields. I would love to read more about Morihei Ueshiba's life as it sounds like he lived a full an interesting one. Aug 14, Bernie Gourley rated it it was amazing Shelves: The edition of The Art of Peace that I read is divided into three parts. Part III is a collection of aphorisms and brief statements outlining the art of peace.
The biographic portion of the book is intriguing, but on a few occasions drifts from biography to hagiography. However, when the biography tells stories of god-like superpowers, it makes it hard to take the man seriously as a martial artist.
The story that comes to mind is one in which Ueshiba voluntarily faced a firing squad and emerged unharmed due to either ninja-like or Hollywood vampire movie style actions. Ueshiba is clearly a man of faith.
He suggests life should be lived on basis of 70 percent faith and 30 percent science. Full disclosure: Part two includes extensive quotes from Ueshiba himself. Ueshiba criticizes the past Shoguns who used the art of war to control people.
There is an interesting comparison of Ueshiba to swordsman and Zen master Tesshu Yamaoka about whom John Stevens also wrote a biography. Part three reads like the work of an ancient yogi in places, and, in other places, offers the stern admonitions to train hard that one would expect from a martial arts teacher.
A recurring theme is that the martial artist should purge himself of pettiness, be it in the form of being judgmental, materialistic, fearful, selfish, or malicious. This is not a criticism. There are other books to learn more about physical technique. This thin book provided me with a great deal to think about. If you'd like a page-a-day philosophical affirmations book, then this one's for you.
I don't mind the bite-sized chunks this book can be broken into, but for the most part, the subject matter isn't my cup of tea. Several quotes did stand out to me, though. Dealing with such obstacles is an essential part of training in the Art of Peace. Simply act decisively without reserve! Part of me wonders what I missed, while the other part is thankful that I accidentally read the shortest version available. Aug 23, Daniel rated it it was amazing.

Oct 15, Rick Marcello rated it really liked it. Let me make this clear. What does this have to do with this book? Well the Art of Peace is the basically the philosophy behind the martial art Akido.
When I read the book I found it to be very poetic. 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.
