Do you think so? Using the waterfall as having no desire for power agrees with what I say.

If a waterfall desired more power it would be self defeating.

Is it undeniably powerful? It sounds to me you seek such alas.

There is no power and there is no superiority. In my view those who seek such are off the path unfortunately.

Missing my point. Why am I not surprised...

If you study waterfalls, you will become acquainted with power, whether power is your reason for studying them or not. Likewise with aiki.

Of course, I guess I'm making a brash assumption that those who study aikido are in fact interested in understanding aiki. But if you're not, maybe you should call your art something else.
