Miyamoto Musashi, eminent swordsman
There is a saying in Japan that once only every 500 years a great swordsman is born. Out of the handful of great swordsmen, perhaps the greatest was born in 1584. Miyamoto Musashi was the most famous swordsman of his day in Japan. He won renown by developing a style of fencing using two swords. He was considered the embodiment of the samurai spirit and of the ideal military man; he was also an accomplished painter. Like many other samurai whose lords had fought and died on the losing side in the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, Musashi became a masterless samurai (ronin)
The Chronicles of David
Blessed be our God,
For he shows me what door to open and not.
To speak and engage with people and walk away to those.
Blessed is the Lamb of God, our Saviour to the Throne Room of our Heavenly Father.
For he guides my mind in the direction of pure thought, to walk in lands and spaces where evil dwells.
Like a bright light I shine sharing the glory of his Kingdom to his people, by words of prosperity and wisdom.
Blessed is he in the Holy Spirit that gives me visions of what’s to come and what is yet to past.
For he grows my understanding in the Wisdom of God.
Worthy is your humble servant to do your works Almighty God. Open ear to your words and discernment to the evil one.
I sing praises in the passages and hallways, in the field and in the presence of the Unholy.
Blessed is my Spirit as it grows in your everlasting Love. For I seek your kingdom and your Love.
