Dreams are communication from our soul and a way in which we can gain an honest perspective of our state of consciousness.
Undivided attention is the ability to have a single point of focus.
The place we can change is in the present. Therefore the way we can learn is to be here now. Learning to live in the present moment is a skill that anyone can practice and improve through daily concentration exercises.

You must learn how to identify the thoughts that distract you.
The next step is to learn to use your will to hold your attention on that single point, idea, person or situation for as long as you desire. This ability teaches you how to still the mind to receive and to give openly.
Memory The productive use of memory is to use the experiences of the past to add to the present. It is the ability to follow a stream of thought or thoughts and identify how that relates to the present.
Listening connects you with yourself, with others and with the Divine Intelligent.
There are two factors of listening: the receptive and aggressive qualities. Having a still mind enables you to identify these two factors and know when to practice one or the other.
