Walking Tall

“After fighting, everything else in your life got the volume turned down. You could deal with anything…We all started seeing things differently. Everywhere we went we were sizing things up.” -The Narrator

For some of you, this quote makes perfect sense.

Many of us are still looking to avoid a fight. I would say the vast majority just want things to be calm, comfortable. We assume that peace comes to those who don’t fight. And yet, the fight is brought to us anyway.

For those who take warrior-hood seriously, you have thrown punches. You have withstood dark forces and faced down demons. The cause is always noble, it is always holy, it is always righteous.

You recall a time before awakening, a time characterized by passivity, a time when you would have recoiled at the thought of going toe-to-toe with the darkness. You were soft. You were a push-over. You were entangled in the affairs of this world, and they had a stranglehold on you. Relationships, possessions, achievements, accolade, career, success, failure, and everything else that used to define you became deafening.

And then you got into your first fight-your first REAL fight. Not a fight against the temporal and flesh-and-blood, but a fight worthy of your soul. And perhaps, amidst the fear and the adrenaline, you felt alive for the first time in your spiritual life. And now, the same can be said of you:

“After fighting, everything else in your life got the volume turned down. You could deal with anything…We all started seeing things differently. Everywhere we went we were sizing things up.”
