I heard once:

"We are either physical beings having a spiritual experience or spiritual beings having a physical experience."

I tend to hold with the latter, hence, I feel that Aikido (and everything else I do throughout the day) is of critical spiritual importance.

I agree with O-Sensei that Aikido is a prayer performed with the body.

Is there something that isn't spiritual?

Very Spiritual to me...I just don't make a big deal about it.
One of the things that bug me is the sometimes over emphasis on spirituality...and not enough emphasis on training the body first.
But what the heck do I know...

I think it depends on the person.
