Aiki: A State of Union

A note on terminology: In this essay, I am using the terms aikijutsu and aikido to refer to two distinct psychophysical states of being, not to the specific martial art traditions of these names. Jutsu (meaning art/artifice/technique) has the implication of calculation and skilled means; do (meaning Tao or Way) has traditionally had the implication of spontaneous unreflected action in the service of a higher aim.
