Sensei's explanation: Museishi (無声詩)- The Unvoiced Poem - the message of our training is like a poem, the words are heard but the message lingers elsewhere silently. . . . To go deep into the art of Aikido is to go deep inside one's self.
At the heart of Aikido training exists our true selves. This journey can be hard and arduous but it ultimately leads to joy and happiness. The first step begins with us and looking at our lives with a lens that is trained inward. We are our biggest problem and when we start to see that we can begin this journey inward. Until that time the world will be against us and every person and every thing will be our enemy. Give up the need to find the source of your problems outside yourself and begin to look inside of you. This is the only way out.
