I am looking for the original Japanese phrase for the above quote by Ueshiba Morihei 植芝 盛平, and haven't been able to find it. It is in his book "The Art of Peace", but I haven't got a Japanese version. Could somebody please give me the correct translation or point me to a reliable source for the right Japanese wording? Thank you.
Part of the problem is that there is no original Japanese version of The Art of Peace, since John Stevens' book is a collection of Ueshiba Morihei's quotes from various sources.
At best, I think you could try to find Japanese versions of other books by him, but I haven't been able to find any resources that suggest they contain the original Japanese version of the quote.
