🧚#nymphsofyoga Day 7️Physically a warrior maintaining justice is in good health. Living to experience the winds and waves of life, they take care to stay strong as they go from one point of life to the next. ️Mentally a warrior is at peace. All is calm in the mind of a warrior, knowing life is not about how many storms we weather, but whether we will have faith for the storms. Mental strength and faith is absolutely critical. ️Spiritually warriors have "just relationships," and are living justly while enjoying those friendships with others and within themselves. Perhaps injustice is not seen and justice is not done because of brokenness inside of us all. I think that's where the warrior from within has to come out. Warriors have the strength, faith and courage to press on. A warrior can be of any faith but as a Christian I can relate thoughts of a warrior on the quest for justice, to Christian ideologies especially after hearing this morning's sermon. Our minister, since he is retiring spoke his final sermon at our church. Given it was his last sermon as a Methodist minister, he got visibly choked up after we sang a song for him. He tells us "I've never had a choir sing to me before." His words are quoted in many of my thoughts I write today. Rev. Dr. Ken Grunden says, "Sudden storms have arisen and suddenly change the path of our lives - health crisis, family crisis, job loss, disillusion of relationship, movement of a family member, all the while we feel alone." He mentions that "jesus seems to be asleep." We think he could do something but "in the midst of these situations it seems the contrary." "Do you not care o lord about my life that is perishing away?" is an internal Christian battle. He goes on to mention how many of us have to anchor one storm if not more. Depression and despair invade lives, with 30,000 suicides in the U.S. each year. 100,000 attempt suicide and fail, showing "our greatest danger is not external conditions but the storms within us, almost always unseen by others"- "Turmoil, anxiety, and depression" mean we must stay optimistic and remember (as I found posing outside) that "behind every cloud, the sun still shines."
