Learn to coexist peacefully. Even if you can’t make friends, don’t make enemies.
Don’t tease, torment, or provoke other people. Don’t be a bully yourself.
Try to understand the other person, and by doing so, make a peaceful connection.
In the Art of Peace we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it.
-- Morihei Ueshiba, The Art of Peace
This is apparent in the physical technique of Aikido. As an attacker reaches to grab or strike we blend with the motion so that they over extend and put themselves off balance. When they are in a weak position, it is simple to apply a technique to redirect, control, disarm, or immobilize them.
The Way of a Warrior, the Art of Politics, is to stop trouble before it starts. It consists in defeating your adversaries spiritually by making them realize the folly of their actions. The Way of a Warrior is to establish harmony.
