This small, elegant book is filled with the wisdom and artistry of a great man. This collection of Morihei Ueshiba s sayings and poetry resonates with deep meaning, making this a gem of a book. The book itself is of very high quality compact and well-bound, with clear print and beautifully reproduced images of Ueshiba s calligraphy. 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. Journal of Asian Martial Arts"

About the Author
Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) was the founder of Aikido. At age eighteen, Ueshiba joined the Japanese military, during which time he also developed his skills in the martial arts. He eventually left the military, deeply discouraged by the death and destruction that results from combat. Ueshiba continued to experiment with a variety of martial arts, finding particular joy in the spiritual aspects of martial arts. He came to believe that a real warrior was one who was rooted in love, and it was in this spirit that he began to develop Aikido, a martial art that emphasizes harmony and the peaceful resolution of conflict.

I've read Edgar Cayce's works, or Kevin J. Todeschi who wrote on his behalf, and practised tai chi, meditation and dwelled into plain real spirituality. This is a very useful book for anyone who wants to improve their own life, it gives you very simple tools for that. Best you can get for such a small price. Basic guidance, for anything. I use it to get along better in the dating scene, it works there too.
Get it, you won't regret it.
If you're the kind of person who buys those 'inspirational quote' transfers for the kitchen wall, you'll probably love it.
*ETA: I read recently that he was actually a great advocate of Japanese Imperialism and expansionism in the 30s & 40s - so there you go, peace guy...
