Mind in dantien is, basically, just a strong survival instinct – the ability to gather yourself into a centred effective whole and rise to unexpected occassion. This is the obvious meaning of suffering, real suffering, not the petty selfish anxiety Buddhists call suffering: it makes you strong, or dead, in a real way, that nothing else, no amount of training, can. Mind in dantien saves your life.
