Re: Morihei Ueshiba's Use of the Term "Aiki"

I think i'ts fine that people have discovered all sorts of things in their Aikido:
Aiki is love
Aiki will change the world
The verbal interaction at work as aiki
Remaining centered with an attacker or even an angry wife as aiki. And I am NOT down playing that skill either
Aikido is big and there is a lot in it that is fun, that is healing, and that builds community.
None of which ever explained Ueshiba's power.
I don't think this thread is trying to explain Ueshiba's physical "power." I think doing so would derail this language discussion. If you wish to discuss that particular topic any further, please start a new thread.
