I claim a spiritual side to my practice. It is expressed in an effective way to live my life and influence, family, co workers, friends, and community and it creates a dramatically effective budo. All of which are put to the test regularly.
Was this your point to post #97?
NEVER...have seen a level of honesty and self-examination as a budo by those who claim the spiritual side of budo.
Would you be willing to describe how I have been falling short, or seem to be, in this regard? I would sincerely appreciate your opinion and will take absolutely no offense.
