Re: To obtain a certain spiritual level in Aikido.

IMHO, the principles of Aikido (connection and nonviolent conflict resolution) are content and context free.

You can apply them strictly to the physical practice on the mat or you can incorporate and integrate them into other contexts such as spiritual growth.

From what I understand, that was O'Sensei's intent.
