Hey Dan,
Was this your point to post #97?

Quote:
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.
Sincerely,
Matt
