The Ballad of John Hall (Please listen with your heart)

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”- John F. Kennedy

Only Progressives, fools and the faint of heart define themselves by the winds of external circumstance. If you would be down today, then I would ask what has changed in you from yesterday to make that so. Liars and thieves have nowhere else to go but from one scheme to the next as liars and thieves, whereas you and I are good in our skin wherever we may be…free to pursue a nobler flight.

While our truest treasures can never be stolen, theirs is the most illusive currency because the lower they stoop to steal it, the lesser it becomes…leaving them always needing more and more and more of what, by nature, makes them less and less and less. You and I will kiss the Sun free from the burdens and the chains of envy, greed and the lust for earthly power that forces them to their knees and then to their bellies to slither endlessly in the dust.

To them, victory is in the taking. To us, it is in the being as God intended. As such, their greatest desire is to take what God himself has given us…which can only be achieved if they are able to deceive us into believing we are no more than they say we are. Sadly for the world, many of us have fallen to such a place, lost between the heaven and hell of their design…surrendering more of ourselves every day until we have exhausted the hope, memory and muscle required for flight.

It is in our darkest hour that we will find our greatest light…So it has always been! But in the instant of greatest opportunity lie the greatest dangers and the tipping point towards the coaxing of their convincing clarion. Here they will spin you the illusory of earthly comfort and security…conformity and prestige, until we can feel them reaching for our own desires.

It is precisely here, where we must deny them. In the instant they think they have us, we must hold them in our gaze. We are as close to the earth as we will ever come for this very moment…to look directly into and through the hollow cavity of their existence! Only here will they finally know their true reflection in the face of honor and courage, until they finally shrivel back into the very shadows that bore them.
