My general point about the quote is that it's very difficult to tell when Ueshiba was honestly talking about the gods as opposed to when he was talking about physical aspects of "internal strength" using religious metaphor. If he was freely intermingling religious discussion with comments, say, on how to do things practically, then it's easy to see that many of the current translations are potentially wildly off-point.
Hi Mike,

I think Ueshiba was talking about the gods, IS, social structure, ethics, everything you coud imagine, at the same time for there was not (in his views) a real difference.

He was not using analogies but identities.
