Tao Te Ching Chapter 68 No fight (playlist)

A true samurai doesn't fight.

A true warrior doesn't get angry.

A true winner doesn't compete.

(from this chapter)


A true samurai doesn't fight. He accepts all.

If you are angry, you are already defeated.


"Simply, he doesn't compete. That's why no one under the sky can compete with him."
(Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching Ch.22)

This is the essence of Aiki-do 合気道, or Tao of synchronized energy.
(☞See Aikido 22-12, Don't compete 66-7, and Aikido & Tariki / Other people's power 68-6)
