“The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.”
~ Morihei Ueshiba from The Art of Peace
Morihei Ueshiba was the founder of Aikido and one of history’s greatest martial artists. Transformed by deep spiritual insights, Ueshiba dedicated his life to “the Art of Peace.”
This is officially the smallest book on which I’ve done a Note. It’s a very small book. And, when I say small, I mean *tiny.* It’s literally pocket-size yet packed with aphorisms collected from Ueshiba’s talks, poems and calligraphy translated by John Stevens.
I’m excited to explore some of my favorite Big Ideas.
So, let’s jump in!
