3 cheers for “open resistance”

Second Rater

When open resistance shows its face,

We make a fatal mistake.

The enemy ticks us off.  Frustrates us.  Maybe even infuriates us.

We declare war.

Strengthen our resolve to fight the fight.

Determined to silence the vocal.

And overcome their resistance.

YET, success comes from THE WAY WE SEE!

Open resistance speaks boldly.  We can pinpoint WHO is resisting.

We can learn WHY . . . if we ask.

We can learn HOW to respond . . . if we listen.

We could not want more.

Open and loud resisters are not the real problem. That falls to the hands of silence

Where you don’t know WHO the enemy is.

Or WHY they are resisting.

Or HOW to deal with it.

This NOT KNOWING is the real problem. That’s why . . . SILENT RESISTANCE KILLS

For more on this, stay tuned!
