"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)

Continuously nutrition pieces of your minds and health must follow.

“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Definitioning Differences Between Listening & Hearing
Unity Consciousness #659



Listening involves using all sensing ability of the entire self to recognize and take in messages (data and instructions) from all sources for the purpose of understanding what those information messages mean. As a result, by default, listening involves processing the information well beyond the moment it is first encountered. Listening involves many things such as questioning, further thought, study, investigation, meditation, nutrition and further listening.


Hearing involves recognizing vibration waves with the ears. Hearing with physical ears is low level stuff just as seeing with physical eyes is low level vision and Giri So is low level consciousness.

Listening's List

1. Listening is part of the communication process. Communication means communing. Communing means tuning in to the spiritual essence and identifying which spiritual nature is speaking to you and which spiritual nature you are speaking back with. Communing is part of the conversation process. Conversation is part of the understanding process.

2. Some listening requires silence and stillness. Some listening requires being very active and making sounds and sensations. At other times, listening falls in between those two extremes.

3. Listening is critical to understanding. Hearing is critical to some forms of listening. We must do both, hear and listen.

4. Any information I swallow whole, will choke and stifle the critical.

5. Listening is a resources that leads to the resource called understanding.

6. Listening is what Initiates do.

7. Listening involves using multiple languages.

8. Sound is a vibration wave. Sensation is also a vibration wave but is not a part of hearing.

9. Many good things don't sound good at first; many bad things do.

10. Listening leads to knowledge of self. You must listen in order to understand who you are. You must understand who you are in order to have healthy self-esteem.

11. The process of becoming one with the Creator is the same as the process listening lays forth which is the same as “the way.”

12. Once we have restored the willingness to listen we have found the way to wisdom.

13. Once we have found the way to wisdom we have found the way to understand the Wheel of Heaven which is the Wheel of Fortune.

14. It is not possible to outgrow the need to listen.

15. When we listen, we are listening to the higher spiritual nature of self. When we are not listening, we are listening to the lower spiritual nature of self. The higher spiritual nature is open-minded.

16. We are always listening, no matter what. No matter what we think or try to do.

17. Because listening is so much more comprehensive than hearing alone, listening helps move us towards closer contact with context. Listening moves us closer to the heart of the matter by helping us understand the heart within matter which is spirit. Listening helps us understand the spirit of the information we are encountering and processing through our logic processes, thought processes and decision-making processes – which are three ways to say the same thing.

18. Listening involves the tenacity to test the veracity of our current selections (settings) (mindset).

19. Listening is not something we're supposed to decide to do. Listening is like breathing. It is a basic need we must do continuously. Listening and breathing are the default settings we are born with. To decide to only listen sometimes is like deciding to only breathe sometimes. In order to do this, our default settings must become corrupted. A person who decides to try to only breathe sometimes is unhealthy because they do not understand what they need in order to be healthy. This metaphor must not be ignored.

20. Listening is a survival ability and a thrival ability. Listening is a necessary part of the process to learn, get better, improve, mature and evolve.

21. Listening hones abilities for the next transition and opens consciousness to more dimensions.

22. Listening is self-respect because, by listening, I give myself an opportunity to learn, thus improve in understanding myself. Listening is part of the respect I deserve to give myself the best opportunities to be the best, all of me can be.

23. Overcoming challenges (adversity) requires listening.

24. Why should something I don't understand or agree with once I understand it, offend me? Why is being offended my reaction, my response? Do I not understand that my reaction is based on the logic inside me? My logic processed information and gave me the response and I decided to be offended. My understanding is based on the logic inside me. My agreement or disagreement is based on the logic inside me.

25. All conflicts are internal conflicts.

26. All internal conflicts are conflicts of understanding due to things such as incompleteness, fragmentation and mutation. These things can be summarized as imbalance. Imbalance can be summarized as being in a suboptimal state or condition.

27. All conflicts are due to the suboptimal condition within.

28. Move that information out of the sections marked “conclusion” and “decision” in your brain computer and reprocess it.

29. See #9 of Ten Cardinal Principles Of Ancient African Deep Thought (UC#45)

30. Relearn to listen, listen to remember.

31. Listening helps us adjust the current directions of our movements along the way of this spiritual journey to become one with the Creator.

32. Of course this means listening helps us correct our course.

33. Listening helps us work through fear because understanding is more powerful than fear. In other words, in areas we are fearful, we lack sufficient understanding.

34. The person who continues to listen, continues to know better and continues to do better.

Note 1: In review of this topic, I realize, in previous messages, I have used the word “listen” in places where words or phrases such as “follow” or “adopt the ways” or “adopt the thinking” or “believe” would have been better choices.
It is necessary to listen to all information. It also necessary not to follow, believe, adopt the ways or adopt the thinking of all information. Being open-minded does not mean doing these things or co-signing on or being okay with anything and everything people do and don't do.

Note 2: Listening is not simply sitting quietly as information is being provided. You must question information in order to properly assess it. It is nearly impossible to be intent on understanding and not any have questions. Questions help you organize and categorize incoming information to relate it to information you already have, compare it, contrast it and know what section of memory to place it in for future reference. This is called file associations. Don't say, “I'm listening” and then don't have any questions. Without questions, you have only heard what has been said. This is silent disrespect that speaks loudly in more ways than one.
