True, but if you don't train like your life depends on it you are just playing lip service to all the lofty 'spiritual growth' aspects of budo. Saying is not as productive as doing, and its difficult to grow or change without difficulty or pain.
But what does "train like your life depends on it" actually mean, given that most of us are not professional soldiers and therefore have other responsibilities beyond martial preparation?
