The Art of Peace, and the secret of balance: how to recover more easily when life throws you


Just a snippet today from one of my favourite philosophers, Morihei Ueshiba (O Sensei), the founder of Aikido:

[O Sensei in action ]

“After observing O Sensei sparring with an accomplished fighter, a young student said to the master, ‘You never lose your balance. What is your secret?’

‘You are wrong,’ O Sensei replied. ‘I am constantly losing my balance. My skill lies in my ability to regain it.’”*
