The Voices You Listen To, What You Constantly See Determines What You Believe

With what and whom you surround yourself, you become accustomed to both and both affect what you end up believing…

The media picked up on this principle as well as the demand that the general public wants their news delivered conveniently, so they started providing 21 minutes of ‘full coverage news’…

Even in 24-hour coverage, the news is only covered in 21-minute segments, repeatedly so, and updated with the most trivial of pieces of information.

When there was not that much information to be had, that wasn’t very problematic.

Today, there is a lot of information to be had, and this IS problematic – but problems are conquerable.

The media, like any other business, is competitive and they have chosen to create an environment where being first is more important instead of creating an environment that is full of integrity, good character…

As context takes time and effort to build and share, it was the FIRST thing to be sacrificed – as was anything else that required time and effort to build and share.

This left content, circumstantial facts, and contained images being their tools of the trade – photos and videos are contained by the view they provide and time line of the snapshot or recording, anything that happened before or after is a moot point to the media.

Now the ‘tell-me-what-to-think’ followers of the 21-minute segment ‘full coverage news’ are following and believing only content.

Which means they are also rationalizing their beliefs?

In content only…

All the knowledge in the world is missing something that is making even the best intellect look stupider than any ignoramus — discernment and wisdom… true wisdom.

In accepting only content and avoiding the time and effort to seek and research the context of a situation and/or story, especially of benchmark and milestone situations, the MSM has now gained full control of what the general public thinks, as planned by the Globalist Elites more than 50 years ago.

When you study the context of history long enough you discover that it was in fact more than 50 years ago, it is more like since Woodrow Wilson replaced all textbooks in our schools with his highly biased, racial view of American history in 1913 – the model of which is STILL being used in today’s schools more than a 100 years later.

This was observed by the Elitists early on and emulated ever since to various degrees with a much higher success rate.

The 60 richest families in the world are getting richer off of this stupidity while the stupid become complacent and desire to have their never-ending thirst for being told what to think satisfied…

Oblivious that thirst will never see satisfaction.

And that stupid person is not the other guy, most of the time it is going to be you.

Add to all this the rate of change in technology and the inability of many other changes to keep up with it and you have the perfect environment to feed the insecurities of those that have refused to learn how to think and prefer being told what to think, feeding their every false belief with more contrived content (aka agenda).

There are going to be those who are who have released themselves FROM such as they choose to focus on context, which eventually provides security and satisfaction

And there are going to be those who are who have imprisoned themselves IN such as they choose to focus on content, which consistently provides insecurity and dissatisfaction.

Where we focus is where we end up arriving.

Whose voice we listen to is whom we end up believing.

If we keep listening to any voice, even the wrong voice, we will eventually believe that voice.

And both have nothing to do with truth.

HEAR what you are listening to,
SEE what you are looking at,
Watch the SHELL GAME, not the shells…
Due diligence is YOUR responsibility

At any level,
At all times…

Knowledge Is Power?

Uhhhhhhhhh not quite…

Take a good look at this venn diagram sharing the relationships of knowledge with truth and belief – there are many other relationships involved with knowledge however truth and belief are the core of most, if not all, all the relationships to knowledge.

Wisdom and discernment are two traits that are not part of this equation as both can overpower knowledge by anyone that reaches for wisdom and exercises discernment as part of their daily pursuits – knowledge (and age) is totally independent of wisdom and discernment can be seen in how we know very wise and/or discerning 7-year-olds and profoundly dumb 70-year-olds.

This means beliefs are the result of your knowledge – whether that knowledge is flawed, totally wrong, totally right, totally self-righteous, or totally righteous determines what you believe is real.

Belief is unbiased to the discernment,
quality, correctness, and righteousness
of the information it receives

it just devours knowledge.

This is precisely why knowledge should always be

  • questioned
  • inspected
  • verified
  • qualified, and
  • placed under constant scrutiny

Otherwise, leaning on just your knowledge will block out the truth by default – and this is exactly what globalists want you to do.

Their job is to muddy up the waters of your knowledge until you finally start listening to them — your job is to perform your own due diligence.

We see most going into an emotional tizzy whenever their beliefs are being challenged – those who have made due diligence a habit are not so easily triggered.

The emotional reaction is the just first step of denial, and some will forever remain in this torturous landscape, denying anything anyone is saying or anything they are reading that is contrary to their beliefs.

Why do they want to live in constant pain? No clue – and that’s THEIR problem as it is their convictions being confronted, not yours – your problem is performing due diligence for your own belief system.

You can try to persuade anyone but they must be ready to listen – if they aren’t listening, plant a seed with them and move on (be sure to say a prayer for them – if Saul of Tarsus can be persuaded, anyone can but in God’s time, not yours.

Most will run away from convictions, some will run towards them, and rare is the person who always runs towards them.

Dealing with what is convicting you is part of the learning process, something we used to learn in our education system – ever wonder why they stopped teaching this?

Think Cloward-Piven strategy and Alinsky rules…

If you were never taught this you haven’t a clue unless someone introduced this concept to you – and from what we have experienced, seems the younger you are, the more challenging it is to wrap your mind around this, mostly thanks to the Liberal education system for making what is a simple concept so difficult for you by muddying up your knowledge.

In truth knowledge IS power but without tempering it with wisdom as well as discernment, well — don’t we already have colleges full of such fools as professors as evidence of such vanity, yes?

One last thing – you are who you are from the sum of the people around you and some have had a greater impact on you than others, the good as well as the bad.

From this you need to learn that things don’t happen TO you, they happen FOR you.

Once you have ingrained this into your thinking and it becomes part of your reactions, no enemy has power over you…

Please view the Trailer for this video first. The graphic imagery is intentional as it is the only way you will know what is happening; Big Pharma is counting on you NOT knowing what is really happening.

From the Directors of 'These Little Ones' and 'Watch the Water'

Embalmers and funeral homes see the results of what has been happening for the past 2 years - something is WAY different, it isn't good, and they aren't happy...

Life insurance companies are fully aware of the results the embalmers and funeral directors are seeing and reporting.

Sudden Adult Death Syyndrome (SADS) is NOT a syndrome - it is a result of foreign substances that are in the vaccines, one of them being Graphene Oxide, that are create inorganic strings in the blood system that eventually stops the blood, dead.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

We are but 1 of 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
