Patience K Phillips Patience K Phillips said: " Morihei Ueshiba’s The Art of Peace: Teachings of the Founder of Aikido translated by John Stevens in book form is very different than the audible version Brian Nishii narrates.

Every year I pick a word to reflect for 365 days. #PeaceistheWord2022

"An incredible read of the print (not the made for audible extended including historical facts) version. With a mountain river stream on YouTube, fireplace ablaze, ambient Spotify, good food, with exceptional tea comingling decided to binge read and reflect until I'm finished reading. Like a little retreat am enjoying emersion in the contemplative art of peace joy 😊" Jan 18, 2022 01:02PM

“I am not the first person you loved.
You are not the first person I looked at
with a mouthful of forevers. We
have both known loss like the sharp edges
of a knife. We have both lived with lips
more scar tissue than skin. Our love came
unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when we’d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.
This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.”
Clementine von Radics
