Re: Is aiki a clash of forces?
It is simple.
If you feel you have the answers, ignore everyone else and train and do your own thing.
If you feel like there is a nagging thing that wants to make you pursue the truth and that what you are doing is true training, stop debating on the internet, and meet people. If you are not impressed or feel that you didn't encounter anything special, move on and resume the training that you were doing. If you felt there was something more superior and special, take on the new training.
Is it really that hard?
