Aiki Lab

In our case, the «Lab» (laboratory) is the set of conditions which a person, on their own will and intentionally, chooses to obtain as the focused environment, in order to study their own nature and to recognize its flaws, if any exist. The Aiki «Lab» is the place for Aikido practice (Dojo), and such a practice is the process of exploration of the manifestation of Aiki (the power of Love) in the artificial conditions aiming to empirically, through ones sensations, discover it and see its greatness; to see the advantage of the «good» over the «evil»* (in other words - the advantage of balancing one own egocentric force).

The “Philosophy” of Aikido

The Way, Aikido offers, is the process of learning the recipe of the Spiritual Man creation inside yourself through the masterly played game of mind and perception. It is a blessing to understand in what unique way the mind and perception can supplement each other to open, through mutual cooperation, the constant need of creative power of Love (Aiki) so utterly required perceiving oneself as a part of a perfect balanced state in which the whole universe rests.

One Source

The words of Morihei Ueshiba that “people have forgotten about everything coming from one origin” are usually taken abstractive, having obscure meaning. But these words actually carry the Great knowledge necessary for the human being to realize their designation in our world.

Hiding of the True Aikido

Aikido - as the Way (Do) of the Power (Ki) of Love (Ai) - reveals itself in different forms and wears different kinds of clothes in order to attract different people. No matter what reason a person finds to come to Aikido - either because of spiritual search or for realization of their ambitions – there is hope for everyone that Aiki will disclose them its true designation.

Aikido as a New Means

Even to an ignorant person does Aikido give hope to be in the right place and touch the Divine wisdom (without even knowing about it). In the past, only great sufferings and hardships could provide path to the answers and saved a person from ignorance and crudity of our world. Now, when the world has progressed to a softer phase of its evolution, we were given Aikido as a new means to reach comprehension of the Divine wisdom, which has become possible without the need of tough restrictions and torment of our physical bodies.
