(2) To Practice Properly

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.

~Morihei Ueshiba

… and, I add …

Inception ~ The Universe, I The Magician. Your 1st sparks, formless. You ideate. You create, and abduct onset.

Conception ~ Your Family, II The High Priestess. Your giving form to the formless. You make, and put together.

Carry to Full Term ~ III The Empress. The Yoniverse, that from which all emanates. You carry 1st sparks to full term.

Your Fellow Human Beings ~ IV The Emperor. Establish Your Place, 1st inklings of Sovereignty. You establish genius loci in the placement of your ideas.

Is this

Is this REALLY The Emperor hiding in plain sight at work as The Placemaker initiating the Rite of Site as the Ace of Wands scribing the set with Sacred Inner Square and Compass who is the 1st to set the stage to locate a sacred structure before it is built? … or, just some random Architect caught in the act? My hero Julia Morgan, anyone? RBG, R.I.P. Your memories are indelible blessings.

The Temple Steps

Everyone

Everyone is different, just like everyone else. All similar, each unique. Maybe none of us are born equal, though I herald equanimity and that we are each born with equal value.

Inner Inheritances


We are born with Inner Inheritances, innate talents. Best to you as you inherit your inner treasures each time you discover more about yourself. Best to those talents being something you develop into abilities that support the clarity of vision of just the way you were born to see.

Your Life, Your Way

You are a Temple, inside and out. May you be and continue to become your own Temple inside and out as your life experiences place the steps. How do you Temple yourself? What part of your life builds foundations up under your dreams to reach them and support them and realize them?

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

Pardon any typos or awkward language constructions. AutoCorrect often writes things on my behalf that I didn’t Nintendo.
