Oh, I'm aware that he talks about stuff like this all the time, but that's not what I said. What I said was:

It isn't a shortcut to nirvana or union with God.
Ueshiba says that oneness with God is a good thing and an important goal, but I think it's a mistake to take it one step further and decide that aikido training is the ultimate, divinely ordained path to that goal. I like to think Ueshiba would take issue with that. I certainly do.
