A warrior soon learns that the most difficult days and nights are those which teach the greatest lessons. The question is not why but where? For a storm or crisis is actually a test of strength and a call to change in some way, to move in a new direction. A warrior knows that what comes unexpectedly from the universe is important indeed, for it is a time when all the forces of power are honed to provide the next step on the journey and forge a new path of heart. So don’t be disappointed by hardship or disturbances but welcome them like waves of change come to carry you along on your journey, taking you where you need to go next. For a storm is only a storm if one decides to think of it that way, otherwise it is a spring rain providing the waters to nurture new life.
