Koan: The universe within

“He who has gained the secret of aikido has the universe in himself and can say, “I am the universe.” When an enemy tries to fight with him, the universe itself, he has to break the harmony of the universe. Hence at the moment he has the mind to fight with me, he is already defeated.”
Morehei Uyeshiba

When you spend time with your dog–walking, playing, training, hanging out–does it feel like you are “breaking the harmony of the universe”? Or are you in harmony with each other?
