I think the beauty of Aikido is that it is it own philosophy in its very essence. What I mean is that to progress you have to understand it and as you struggle to get your and uke's body to do these ridiculous looking movements your mind is trying to grasp the why of the movements and you are forced to mentally grow.
At least I think so,

than to live a lifetime on your knees"
