I guess my point was, no matter how fulfilling and how much they enrich our lives, martial arts are not going to answer the really "big" questions in life. I honestly don't think the big answers are found in a dojo.
I don't know if I agree with you. I mean your right in that all the big answers are only found by searching deep within ourselves and coming to term with our shadow as well as our gifts. But isn't the main function of religion, spiritual movements and Budo to provide us with different ways of exploring and relating to life, so that maybe the big answers become clearer. I don't know if I make any sense just a thought.
