    "The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain."
    ~ Aristotle

    I guess the order of things is always that we are just humans in every which way..

    That sounds quite hardcore. "May I break your arm, sir?" I'm sure the emperor will appreciate the show!"

    Yup, on the other hand, O Sensei's view on harmonious resolution of a conflict was making sure the other person was alive after a fight.
    He didn't necessarily concern himself with the state in which people found themselves after a fight, just as long as they were alive. Which I guess in pre 2nd WW Japan was very kind.

    Well, considering the brutal japanese mentality that does sound quite kind. Warriors aren't there just to hug their "enemies", the point is to stop them. Did you see the video I posted earlier of his quotes here? If he believed in the power of love then I can greatly admire that.

    I like the old Eastern teachings such as Tao Te Ching because they are simple while being full of wisdom.

    Here's a wiki about the religion O Sensei Morihei Ueshiba followed.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oomoto

    I think some of you will appreciate the fact that it has been run mainly by women, although it seems O sensei was attracted by a male spiritual leader of this little Shinto derivative sect.
    Have a great day today

    When you get what you want in your struggle for self
    And the world makes you king for a day,
    Just go to a mirror and look at yourself
    And see what that man has to say.

    For it isn't your father or mother or wife
    Whose judgement upon you must pass;
    The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
    Is the one staring back from the glass.

    Some people may think you a straight-shootin' chum
    And call you a wonderful guy,
    But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
    If you can't look him straight in the eye.

    He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
    For he's with you clear up to the end,
    And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
    If the man in the glass is your friend.

    You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life
    And get pats on the back as you pass,
    But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
    If you've cheated the man in the glass.
    = DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR =
