Welcome to Laradiji’s LinP|RinP. Thank you for clicking. Eshe O, I’m a Nigerian American lifestyle vlogger who loves living a peaceful life, and I love talking about situations we might find ourselves in that need peaceful endings.

This section is the main section of my channel so if you’re all about living a peaceful life as well, then this channel is definitely for you

In this video as stated in the title, I’ll be talking about the act of listening under the umbrella of living a peaceful life and how it can help save lives.

Will it help you understand some things towards living a peaceful life with your children, your spouse, your family, your workplace, and your society at large, you bet.

There has to be a reason why we have ears right? Why did our maker give us ears? To listen with, my dear. Ever since we were in our mother’s wombs, we’ve been hearing, but have we been listening? What’s the difference?

Hearing – means to perceive sounds, it os accidental, involuntary and therefore effortless while Listening – means to consciously give attention to sound, and involves the analysis of sounds and understanding what you hear, it is also voluntary, intentional and one has to be focused.

So, before we go further, medically, what’s going on in our ears, we hear sounds, our ears send that information to the brain through a beautiful system our auditory system, the brain then interprets and lets us know exactly what were hearing, high pitch, low pitch, pleasing sounds, annoying sounds and many more, that’s what it all boils down to.

What’s going on in our brains that we generally don’t listen though, we hear but we don’t listen, we listen but we don’t take action. Communication is usually two ways, someone speaks and another person listens and reciprocates.

If someone speaks and the other person doesn’t hear, vital information can be lost. But if someone speaks and the other person doesn’t hear, that’s tragedy, and what’s tragedy? an event causing great suffering, destruction, and distress, such as a serious accident, crime, or natural catastrophe.

Living in peace is the main section of my channel and in this section. I try to talk about issues that are not making peaceful living possible. For instance, for a change to happen, there has to be a problem first. And then we can find solutions  to solve those problem. Same thing with communication, if you want to change someone’s mindset, her thinking, her fears, her emotions, you have to first change the way you listen.

Famillially – our Kids don’t listen

don’t jump on your table and bed, you’ll hurt yourself

Don’t spill your food and water, we don’t have any more

Don’t play on the road, stay on the sidewalk

Professionally  –  our bosses sometimes don’t listen

Staffing ratios

Equipment needed to do an effective job

Recognition for jobs well done

Relationshipally – Spouses don’t listen

Cover your lotion when you’re done with them and Don’t bring all  your work garbage home anymore

Throw out empty containers when you’re done with them, Put your cups in the kitchen when you’re done with them

Place your shoes on the rack when you come home, and don’t leave them laying all around.

We are all responsible adults, why should we rely on someone doing something for us. Pitch in, Get it done.

Religiousally – people are not listening

The bible teaches us to love our enemies, infact we hate them with extreme passion and even pray for their death

Adam and Eve didn’t listen, look at where we are today, does it look like a garden?

Granted there are fake pastors, you too use your ears to listen to the word and pray for more understanding


We don’t listen to our purpose

We don’t listen to God’s Holy Spirit, our conscience

We don’t listen to our bodies

Financially – we’re not listening to our bank accounts.

We go on elephant projects but our bank accounts are still in the mouse stage

We’re living large but our accounts are screaming for help

We’re in debt but people must not know so let me keep buying.

Listening improves communication and that builds trust between the parties involved. I feel like we’re all sometimes very itchy to say something when we’re faced with situations and it takes a lot of restraint, strength, and patience to hold our tongue when we should stay quiet and listen fully to the other party’s concerns and anxieties.

It is what you repeatedly hear that will eventually change your life for the better or for the worst. Hear and Listen to positive teachings, there are bible apps you can listen to. And then I was like oh oh, we’ve heard countless preaching and teachings and we’re still set in our ways, what will make us change.

Accidents? That take limbs 

Deaths? Of Loved ones 

Diseases that have no cure

Intractable Pain?

Hatred or Hostility? Bully 

Negative outcomes? 

What will make us change. Let’s hear your voice in the comment section, that’s it for this one.

Thank you very much for watching.

God willing, we are on this earth for an average of 75-80yrs.

Let’s not waste any of our precious time on matters that don’t help us positively in some way.

You have a decision to make, if not now, maybe later, the ball of listening is in your court.

Ask questions if you have any, don’t hesitate to leave a comment as well.
