"To practice properly the Art of Peace, you must:
Calm the spirit and return to the source.
Cleanse the body and spirit by removing all malice, selfishness, and desire.
Be ever-grateful for the gifts received from the universe, 
your family, Mother Nature, and your fellow human beings."


"The Art of Peace is the principle of non-resistance. 
Because it is non-resistant, it is victorious from the beginning. 
Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished. 
The Art of Peace is invincible because it contends with nothing."

 Morihei Ueshiba - Founder of Aikido

"The Art of Peace"

Study how water flows in a valley
stream, smoothly and freely
between the rocks. Also learn from
holy books and wise people.
Everything - even mountains,
rivers, plants and trees -
should be your teacher.


Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido

T'ai Chi Ch'uan 
"The Supreme Ultimate"

Knowing others is intelligence,
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength,
Mastering yourself is true power.




At least for today: 

Don't get angry.
Don't be grievous.
Express your thanks.
Be diligent in your business.
Be kind to others. 

For improvement of mind and body.
Usui Reiki Ryoho.

The Founder
Mikao Usui
