"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)

Teaching Proverbs: Foolish, Deceitful, Religion, Answering Prayers And So Continues The Meaning Of Life & Existence (Part 8p)

I asked for blessings. I prayed for help. I prayed for health. I asked for money and other such wealth. I forgot to pray, not even “by the way,” for knowledge of self.

I was caught up in my sleepiness by a golden stork. Its rainbow-tipped wings touched both horizons. It balanced itself in this fashion and we were suspended, motionless above and below multitudes.

I was shown two people in the lower portion. I watched. I soon tired and asked again for blessings. I was told I would be returned and awakened immediately if I answered one question correctly.

”But what about my blessings,” I asked again? Clarity will bring blessings I was told. If I did not answer correctly, I would be returned but even more distracted and more sleepier.

There was a long silence. The rest of the conversation took place within. During that time, I paid closer attention to those two people.

I noticed they knew each other and were both following the same religion. One of them had "recommended" the religion to the other, yet did not have values as the religion. Their words, actions and relationship were incongruent because they were trying to communicate using different definitions. Though they used the same words, they had very different meanings. Only one of them knew it. “Something is seriously wrong here,” I thought.

Now soul satisfied that my reflections had led me to the critical thought, the question was provided. “Which one is foolish and which one is deceitful?”
