LAW AND ORDER

“I will restore law and order to this country.” ~Donald Trump.

And just how will you do that, Donald? You will single handedly fund training programs for the police and National Guard? You will single handedly educate people to respect the police who have profiling policies that contribute to the problems? You will bring manufacturing and road and bridge building back to this country by creating millions of new jobs for people who don’t have a clue about how to build a bridge or fix a road? Tell us Donald the specifics of your grandiose plan. And all along in your acceptance speech you said, “Believe me” at least 5 times.

What did Hitler say? What did Mussolini say? History has shown it was the same form of “Believe me.” Excuse me; anyone who has to TELL you to believe them has a trick up their sleeve. If they are telling the truth, they DON’T have to tell you to believe them. Please visit the following links and read more about the stark similarities between what Trump says and what Hitler and Mussolini said.

Remember, Trump was an avid reader of both men and don’t you think with his money and power that he feels he could accomplish what they didn’t. He is NOT a good businessman. He is not someone to ‘look up to’. He is NOT a savior. He is evil and calculating despite what his family and business teams touts about him. Don’t believe the lie. See it for what it is and NOT what you want it to be. He speaks in glowing concepts without giving the details of how he will accomplish these concepts; much like what Hitler and Mussolini did their peoples. Don’t FALL for it!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Guru Question
by Jeff Belyea, PhD.

WHAT IS POPULAR
ISN'T ALWAYS
TRUTHFUL!

Just because someone is popular and says what the uninformed want to hear does not make them truthful. When someone knows the truth and still tells people what they want to hear in order to gain their trust and increase their popularity, they are despicable at best. Truth comes from awareness, an ongoing realization of the facts and a heartful empathy for humankind. Popularity does not determine truth; it buries it under erroneous beliefs and misguided passions. Those who live in the darkness of erroneous beliefs fear the truth because it not only disturbs their perceived control of their world, but challenges their feelings of safety and security.

Those who are dominated by liars are prime targets for manipulators because they want to continue to live in their mediocrity and what they believe is safe and sound. They won’t accept any challenge of the status-quo because they fear what others will think and how they will treat them as a result. Fear is the original ‘trickle-down” energy that saturates decent people with ‘what ifs’ and ‘what might happen’ instead of ‘what can happen’ and ‘what will happen’ when we all learn how to work together. Faith in a desired result is always undermined by those who preach fear. In that way they can control, dominate and manipulate you to believe what they want you to believe MORE than the truth as it stands.

Always remember; the truth is independent of how you feel about it. Your reaction to it, non-action because of it or proaction from it determines whether or not it becomes real to you and others. Shared truth is known by those who make it a first priority in their lives. They observe the facts, research the veracity of those facts and validate the occurrences of those facts as a matter of course in order to be accurate and NOT erroneous. When you choose to emotionally react, not act at all or mentally proact you are recognizing that a truth has motivated you to respond to your awareness of it.

It is when you allow that truth to be molded into your manifest agenda to further your erroneous beliefs instead of the truth is when you become a liar that is controlling, dominating and manipulating others and yourself to respond accordingly. A pure spirit always upholds the truth despite the lies of others. That is when truth becomes a priority and yes, it can cause you problems with others, but the truth allows you to live in the flow of Divine order which is infinitely more important than upholding the lies and agendas of those who care not to be truthful. It is up to you to be diligent, forthright and honor the truth always. It does set you free to become whom and what you were created to be. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A DEEP FREEZE

Are you in a deep freeze in your life? Do you feel that despite your efforts you aren’t getting anywhere? Are you stifled by events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and how people have treated you? Have you retreated into your shell of safety, security and mediocrity because you afraid of being hurt? How do you tear down the walls of self-protection that you have created in order to participate in life? Actually, it’s quite simple. As with any bivalve mollusks such as oysters or clams, applying heat to it forces it to open. Inducing energy releases the cold hard grip of the muscle that keeps the shell closed. Heat is the motivator just as induced energy is what frees you from being stifled.

Scientists have done experiments with bacteria and small animals known as Tardigrades. Tardigrades (meaning "slow stepper") are water-dwelling, eight-legged, segmented micro-animals. They have been found everywhere from mountaintops to the deep sea, from tropical rain forests to the Antarctic. Tardigrades are notable for being perhaps the most durable of known organisms: they can survive extreme conditions that would be rapidly fatal to nearly all other known life forms. They can withstand temperature ranges from 1 K (−458 °F; −272 °C) (close to absolute zero) to about 420 K (300 °F; 150 °C), pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 30 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce [Wikipedia.com]. In other words, these creatures are probably the most resilient life form known to humankind.

Certain bacteria have been known to survive being dormant for 100,000 hidden in salt crystals within freezing climates on earth and in asteroids. As with the Tardigrades and certain forms of bacteria, when water and heat are induced they come back to life to flourish once again. Can the same be said for you? Are you so deep in your shell that you are frozen with inaction? Are you so comfortable in your comfort zone that you need some stimulus to be freed from your self-imposed prison? Life can go dormant but revives when energy and the life giving substance of the growth medium is present. What represents that in your life? Divine service! You have been blessed with unique talent, skills and abilities that are valuable to this world. If you don’t utilize them, they will atrophy and become useless. The medium of life is always present but it takes your energy to stimulate your growth and expansion by participating in life.

Use your imagination to create your reality by reaching out in prayer to access the energy in this vast omniverse. Be still, feel and listen to the presence of this inherent energy in the stillness of the fabric of space-time. Take that potential energy and make it kinetic by sharing Divine love in Divine service to others. Your shell will pop open and your energy will be released to bless others. You will be participating in life instead of just existing in mediocrity.

Don’t allow the resistance to what appears to be against you to overcome what you know you were created to do. Step out of your shell and be that which gives life and shares Divine love. Despite the onslaught of environmental conditions that caused you to retreat into your shell, it takes your consciousness being awakened to your inner spirit in order to utilize your imagination. Imagination triggers the energy from the fabric of space-time to co-create a life of fulfillment where you actively participate in its growth and expansion. You have been blessed with life. Stop being dormant and LIVE it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PARTIES ARE
THE SAME?

If you believe that the two political parties are the same, then you clearly don’t see reality. Perhaps they are in some ways, but NOT in others. The main difference is INTENT. The Republicans live in fear of the control of what they perceive as limited resources because they know that those who are in control of those resources can determine how those resources are spoon fed to the masses; where they can make a huge profit! For example, the alliances with Israel and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East are because of the control and flow of the huge profits from oil. The ongoing wars in Afghanistan are because of the control and flow of the huge profits from the enormous mineral deposits. Without the control of natural resources, not just oil and minerals but land and water, the Republicans believe that they cannot take advantage of those who need to consume those resources.

Why do you think that the banksters orchestrated the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Income Tax in 1913! To control the value and resource of other people’s labor that converted into financial resources! The main difference between the Republicans and the Democrats is that the Republicans are more concerned about ‘ME’ than ‘WE”! The Democrats have an INTENTION to serve the masses of people with equal rights. The Republicans try to diminish those rights by imposing voting regulations and fear of people who aren’t legal being able to vote. In reality, those numbers are practically non-existent. Issues always carry weight based on their legitimate impact on society as a whole. You cannot say that one issue has a greater impact when the numbers don’t support it. You can say that it does, but you would be blatantly lying! The only way the Republicans gain constituencies is by lying to the members of their party. They create ‘possible’ scenarios and use plausible deniability to cover their asses.

They did that for the past eight years with their unwarranted attacks on Barack Obama. Because he appeared different than their lily white constituency, he was a Muslim that wasn’t born in this country. The biggest proponent of this bullshit is now a candidate for the highest office in the land; Donald Trump! Obama put Hillary Clinton in charge of the State Department and in essence, trained her for taking on the responsibility of having negotiating strength in foreign policy. Why? Because we are NOT xenophobes; we are now citizens of the world! The only way the Reps would stand a chance at winning was to demonize Clinton and make her look weak. Watch some old B&W movies sometimes and see how women were always hysterical and weak. Perhaps they were then, but they are definitely not NOW!

Stop embracing the stereotypes of racists, misogynists and Bible beaters who don’t have a clue what is really going on. We have grown as a nation and we will NOT be going backward!!! We will continue to move forward by rejecting the lies and manipulation of the good ole white boys that run the Republican Party. Stand up for what is RIGHT and stop buying into the complete and utter bullshit that they attempt to make plausible. They don’t give a goddamn about you and your family. The only thing that they care about is collecting financial interest off of the money you spend to maintain your declining lifestyle.

Wake up and smell their bullshit for what it is and vote your conscience this November. Remember, a non-vote for Hillary IS a vote for Trump! And a vote for Trump is a vote that will kill your lifestyle and start more wars for profit. See things for how they are and NOT what you want to believe that they are. And please, don’t play that lesser than two evils horseshit with me. Perhaps you will soon realize what this country is up against. A vote for Hillary is a vote to move FORWARD and a non-vote or vote for TRUMP is a DEFINITE move BACKWARD. If you can’t see this, then may God have mercy on ALL of our souls! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

VOTING DOESN'T COUNT?

Those who believe that voting doesn't really count live in fear of what any government can do to them.

Those who preach anarchy have no order in their soul and cannot know how things really work because they cannot get their own lives to work.

They troll the world looking for some moron to listen to their untenable bullshit because they need to justify their own miserable life of mediocrity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.    

Homes For Cats

LIES ABOUT HRC

I just love my Republican friends. Despite the truth and no verifiable evidence against her, you STILL stick to your erroneous beliefs. HRC came from where we are and rose up to where she is. That should be something a Republican would admire, you would think. But no, they now admire a silver spoon that spits on them with his ignorance and pisses on them with his bravado. He is NOT what you believe he is. He IS evil and if you can't see that, then may God have mercy on your soul! Some claim that Hillary has always been a part of the 2%. She started out in the 98%. And now they look down on her for rising up? Give me a break!

Some claim that she is untrustworthy and her campaign illegal because she received money from Saudi Arabia. Her campaign was legal according to our laws. What about GWB receiving money from Osama Bin Laden? They conveniently forgot to mention that! Others are STILL screaming “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!” and harping over her emails. Both have been disproven and yet they still harp? What about the fact that the Republicans DEFUNDED embassy security just prior to Benghazi? What about GWB and Cheney destroying 22 million emails that revealed NO WMD's? Answer those questions, Puh-lease!!! To all the Republicans reading this right now: Grow the FUCK up and smell the bullshit of your stinkin’ thinkin’!

Your constituents ruled and ALLOWED Citizens United so that BIG money could influence our political system. How dare YOU talk smack about a woman who has dedicated her life to helping children, the disabled and the downtrodden. Look at yourself in the mirror!!! What have YOU done to help those who are disadvantaged? What the fuck have YOU done! Stop being like DJT and calling her Billary, Chillary, Killary or Shrillary. Call yourself selfish, pigheaded and obstinate. C’mon, TELL THE TRUTH for once in your God forsaken life! Get over your bloated image of self and learn how to trust SELF. Why are you bitter, mean, overweight and obstinate? Could it be that you hate yourself so much that you HAVE to put down those who have excelled in order for you to feel good about yourself! Puh-lease! Grow the fuck up! ~Dean A. Banks

You are under no obligation to make what you sense the only reality of the universe! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

After the purge comes the surge! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Control, domination and manipulation of the facts to one's benefit demonstrates selfishness, lack of empathy and fear of being known for who you truly are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“No one has the guts to just let them (the poor) wither and die.” ~Indiana Republican John Johnston

“It’s the typical “people are poor because they’ve been enabled” right-wing propaganda.  This fool seems unaware that millions of Americans work full-time jobs yet still rely on help from the government because they make so little due to his party continuing to oppose any hike in the minimum wage. ~Allen Clifton

When you observe anything in life that appears to be intimately related with something else, remember this: It's all relative. And you know how we all feel about relatives! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If you cannot think, you will not question. ~Roger Sutor

Robert J. Sawyer once said that “learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.”

It is ‘one’ of the great paths and not the only one. Learning to take action to uphold the truth when it is appropriate brings the peace of resolve that you have done the right thing! This too, is one of the great things. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Don’t worry about whether or not the Sun will rise. Be prepared to enjoy it. ~Pearl Bailey

Consultation with Dr. Dean

GETTING A CLEAR VIEW

What is the best way to move ahead in life so that you can think clearly enough to examine things as they are in reality? In order to be lucid about anything you have to remove the obstructions, clutter and distractions that block your clear view. Obstructions to clear vision are any and all erroneous beliefs that interfere with the truth.

Clutter is being too involved in things that don’t contribute to your growth and expansion. Distractions are anything and everything that takes up your attention from being focused on what you need to do to accomplish your goals and desires. Thinking clearly requires concentrating upon that which brings the truth into focus and utilizing that focus to reveal just what you need to do to move ahead effectively and clear your channel to the truth of obstructions, clutter and distractions.

Spending the time each and every day in conscious relaxation (meditation) fine tunes your focus and moves you forward into fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly. It is your responsibility to do what it takes to move forward by recognizing your accountability to live in Divine truth. Be blessed by blessing yourself and others with removing that which blocks your clear path to fulfillment. By purging the blockages you will receive the surge of the power of Divine love everlasting! Peace, ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE VALUES OF
THE CHANGE AGENT

In your zeal for change are you ignoring the values of the change agent? Are you buying into the charisma of the change agent instead of the specifics of their claimed change? Are you buying the form and packaging of the product instead of reading the contents and determining the functionality? Purchasing anything without predetermining its value to you AND others, whether or not it is specifically applicable to your needs and asking whether or not it will actually fulfill your needs is making an emotional decision that you ‘believe’ is correct. Discernment requires an objective non-emotional approach to problem solving.

It means letting go of all beliefs and seeing things for how they actually are! Can you objectively do that? Are you buying Donald Trump’s bullshit and believing his lies about Hillary? Are you jumping on the bandwagon of the Republicans who blame her for Benghazi when it was THEY who cut the funding for security to US embassies all over the world? Are you distracted by an email controversy over Hillary’s ‘judgment’ when Bush, Cheney and Karl Rove deleted 22 million emails to cover up their discussions on WMD? If you believe the rhetoric and blatant lies of the Republican party who got us into an unnecessary war that killed thousands of our citizens and thousands of Iraqi citizens, then you are NOT discerning the truth and simply don’t care about the truth enough to be honorable.

Anyone that buys into the over the top bullshit of Donald Trump seriously needs their head examined. They are selfish, ignorant and self-serving. They are investing their loyalty into a purported change agent that is only making changes to serve him. Hillary has spent many years of dedicated public service to all of us. Yes, she is not the perfect politician and has baggage just like any politician, but she IS the superior choice against Donald Trump. Why? Because she has spent her life HELPING people and NOT taking advantage of them like Donald Trump. If you cannot see this, then I pray for your discernment, understanding and your blinded soul.

If your hate for Hillary is greater than your understanding of what HELL Donald Trump will bring to this country, then when it happens you will be the first hit. You will have to deal with your erroneous beliefs and emotional false justifications. You will be responsible for the hell ALL of us will have to pay. You have an opportunity to be on the right side of history in this next election. Will you do the right thing or will you be so emotionally swayed by the utter bullshit of the negative change agent known as the Donald? Remember all of the people, small businesses and agencies he never paid and drove them into bankruptcy!

Remember all of the attention that he draws to himself! Remember how this silver spoon took a ‘small loan’ from his father and converted it into real estate transactions that ended in four bankruptcies and how he just blows this off as using the system. He is not the one to lead this country into the future where the rest of the world respects us and deals with us responsibly. We are NOT xenophobes! We ARE citizens of the world and we truly need to grow and start acting like it or we will pay the price for our bad and selfish decisions. May God bless you and guide you when you push that button in November. I can only pray for your discernment and caring for the rest of us who KNOW what evil Donald Trump truly is! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CLOAKED IN GOOD DEEDS

“Those who are cloaked in good deeds are well camouflaged.” ~Jean Luc Picard

Are we all paranoid about what ‘might’ be happening? Are we projecting our fears into reality by justifying our actions or inactions concerning knowing the truth?  I suggest that you all watch an episode from Star Trek: The Next Generation entitled, “The Drumhead.”

It reveals just how much fear and paranoia can harm innocent people in the name of being ‘good’. The actress Jean Simmons is the guest star and plays the part to the fullest. See how good people with good intent can sometimes be mislead by their own egos in a quest to discover the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIMITED SCOPE

If you expect the worst to happen simply because you cannot see the entire picture, then it is incumbent on you to realize your limited scope and constricted parameters that give the picture of the worst happening as the only viable result. It is in your acclimation to the worst scenario that you have given your power away to that which appears to be real and NOT that which can ultimately be real. Your acceptance of a negative scenario and your resistance to any other possibility is what actually creates what you don’t want in favor of what you do want.

What appears to be true can only become what is true by you allowing it to be. Accept things as they are and move forward by allowing what is best for all to manifest in Divine order. It is when you inject your misguided passion into what you believe is happening that you fuel its manifestation and co-create what you don’t want in favor of what you do want. Taking a do nothing stance only allows what is happening to continue unchecked by your conscious interference and emotional passion. Fighting and resisting only re-creates more of what you don’t want.

It is in seeking peace and allowing the best to unfold naturally for all in Divine order that we come to realize the dreams in our inner hearts. We all must learn to go beyond what we see and develop a vision of a peaceful future. We all must learn to hear what our heart is saying and listen to its Divine guidance. We all must learn to feel our inner passion and direct it toward that which edifies all and co-creates the world we KNOW we can create together. It is when we accept and allow the best to happen and direct our passion toward its manifestation that we come to understand that no matter what happens, no matter what negative appears to be destined to unfold and that no matter what appears to be happening, the Divine has our back!

We were created to express our gifts of our talents, skills and abilities into this world to reflect the Divine presence that is our true blessing. Anything else is wasting our time and the time of others. When you develop the wisdom to see this clearly, then you will be ready to manifest your destiny perfectly in Divine order. May all of you come to know your Divine presence within and utilize its gifts to co-create a perfect world! Don’t let your misguided passions leave you in a place where nothing makes sense and only mediocrity is left. Stand up from your spirit within and be what you were created to be; Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SANITY

I KNOW from my inner spirit that HRC is SANE and DJT is INSANE. I choose sanity over insanity because I KNOW the truth of what this world needs to know.

That growth and expansion sometimes requires choosing between the lesser of two perceived evils. DJT would definitely start wars to increase his bottom line and HRC would not because of her liability to her constituency.

I ALWAYS look at both sides and discern the tipped scales in favor of who would be the least likely to bring death and destruction. And in this case, it is definitely HRC. Peace and blessings to all of you and your families! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

EDUCATION

This is one of the reasons why we need decent education in this country. It is the self-righteous Christian Right Wing ‘assumptions’ of life and living that denigrate the teachings of Christ. They follow the Pauline Gospel more than that of Christ. They are self-serving, moronic and backward and can’t even see just how stupid they really are. I can only pray for the veil of misunderstanding to come down on their minds and hearts.

Their selfishness is over the top because they are enabling righteousness to outweigh faith. They trust not in the Spirit of God to take care of the lilies. They believe that they are favored because of some biblical passage taken out of context to serve their warped self-aggrandizement. They are vipers and Pharisees who twist your words, actions and behaviors to serve their erroneous beliefs.

Pray for their awareness and go about your way sharing Divine love with all. Help the poor. Teach them how to be self-sufficient. Temper you love with awareness and know that you are committing Divine service to edify all. Peace and blessings to you and your families! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOU ARE A FOOL
IF YOU DON'T CHECK
THE FACTS

If you believe ANYTHING without authenticating its existence as fact; testing its veracity as actually occurring and being witnessed by more than three witnesses; and validating its occurrences as yielding similar results, you are a FOOL! Sorry, but the truth actually hurts sometimes and you need to know it in order to grow up and become an aware and enlightened individual.

Denying the truth in favor of your erroneous beliefs is tantamount to lying to further your manifest agenda. Stop being a liar and start being a person of value by allowing that which is the truth to shine through your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors into your world.

Being a parrot of lies, innuendo and rumors denigrates your consciousness, distracts you from knowing the truth and reveals to others that you are a false witness. Only when the illumination of the truth becomes your sole purpose of communication will you come to understand that you have a duty to the truth above all else.

Stop fooling yourself and others with what ‘appears’ to be the truth and dig deeper to ferret out that which stands alone in all of our collective consciousness. Be a harbinger of what can happen by violating the truth and not a martyr as a result of its violation. Stand firm on what is and walk away from what isn’t. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DEALING WITH MORONS

This is how I am now dealing with morons and people who don’t know how to research the truth and speak it:

Commentor: “Hillary is the embodiment of fascism. Trump has not taken corporate money, and said that Americanism not globalism will be our creed. He has exposed a lot of the globalist agenda. Whether he does it can do what he says remains to be seen. But hands down Trump is a better candidate than Hillary and I would say better than Bernie too.”

Dean A Banks: Commentor, you are the epitome of stupidity and downright ego manipulation. Go to the fucking library and learn the facts. Get your head out of your ass and smell the sweetness in the real world. Learn the definition of Fascism before you accuse someone of behavior that isn't remotely fascist. Go troll elsewhere where morons will listen to and believe your bullshit. It is NOT welcome here!

Now, you might not agree with my method, but I am sick and tired of idiots spouting and parroting lies without doing their due diligence. Don’t allow anyone to twist the truth to their own selfish agenda. Speak to them in the language they understand and deserve. Don’t cut them any slack. It is because most of us have, is the reason ignorance proliferates and infects good people who deserve to know the truth and not baseless negative agenda manifestation. Peace and have a blessed day! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEING PROACTIVE

Letting people KNOW who you are instead of them harboring erroneous beliefs of who are is being proactive.

Don't react to others by worrying about what they think, feel and believe about you because that is NOT who you are!

It is who they think, feel and believe you are and NOT who you are. Knowing the difference is the key to living in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting.

Isn’t THAT where you would rather be? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONTROLLING WHAT
WE BELIEVE

The corporate news does a great job of telling us all what the elite wants us to believe. They weave a tapestry of ‘radical’ this and that without giving specific facts to lead to an informed decision. Just as they have you at your peak interest, they present a commercial that makes you feel good about yourself and the products and/or services that their advertisers are selling. They pique your reactions to do something to help yourself resolve the tension and chaos that they reveal in order to sell whatever their advertisers are hawking. Don’t believe me? Then study advertising and the psychology of selling.

One of the greatest tools of advertising agencies is the non-sequitur. It presents scenarios of life that don’t make any sense. These commercials annoy you because the brain HAS to resolve what it perceives and as long as you don’t know what something means, you will attempt to resolve it. Remember the Calvin Klein commercials of the ‘80’s and ‘90’s? The girl looks alluringly into the camera and says, “I hate my mother.” Most people did not know why but when they saw her picture with that look in the department stores Calvin Klein sales skyrocketed.

Advertisers KNOW how to manipulate the masses and that is why they have staff psychologists that they pay enormous sums of money to in order to market their wares. In this modern day and age the corporate news does the same thing! It keeps showing you disarray, chaos and innocents being maimed or murdered to put you into a state of fear where they can manipulate what you do as a result of these horrific acts that we view almost daily in the news. Watch intently and see what commercials are run; what political ads are touted; and what miracle product can make you feel more at ease and less fearful.

Go within each and every day to de-program yourself from the onslaught of the corporate news media filling your head with hatred, fear and loathing. We are the ‘us’ and the corporate news media is the ‘them’ that control, dominate and manipulate us by spoon-feeding the masses with what they ‘want’ us to believe more than what the spirit within ‘knows’. It is good to know what is going on in our world but it is better to know what we can do about it. Together we can choose faith in what we are capable of more than choosing fear in what we can do nothing about.

The choices are always present and it is up to us to choose what contribute to the growth and expansion of all of life over the fear of what will ‘possibly’ happen that is being preached by the xenophobes. Why are they preaching this? Because they want you to believe that they can rescue you from this horrendous and evil world when in fact the only thing that they are doing is increasing their bottom line. Ego seeks to increase the power it wields and the spirit allows all of us to live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

Stop listening to the war mongers, the fearful sheep and the barking dogs. Be ‘pigs on the wing’ and fly over the battlefields of the manipulated into the realms of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting. Free yourself from the loathing and fear of the manipulators not by flicking the off switch; but by KNOWING what they are doing and WHY they are doing it.

Go out into your communities and contribute your talents, skills and abilities in Divine service to others and prove that their apparent hold on what we believe is not what drives us to inaction or reaction, but what drives us to proaction! Be perfect as the spirit within is perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOUBLING DOWN

What does it mean to ‘double down’? Is it just a reaction from someone with an agenda to re-confirm what they believe is the truth even though it isn’t? Or is it a proaction from the reintroduction of new supporting or opposing evidence to re-confirm someone’s beliefs? In Blackjack the term ‘double down’ means “to double a bet after seeing one's initial cards, with the requirement that one additional card be drawn.”

In other words, it’s a gamble on the probability that you are going to get a card that won’t make you bust (go over the limit of 21 points). The Urban Dictionary defines it as “to engage in risky behavior, especially when one is already in a dangerous situation.” In other words, when confronted with factual new information that contradicts your original position, you double down on that position and negate the new sources as either being ‘made up’ facts or over the top opinion.

Now, who does this sound like? DJT perhaps? Most definitely!!! The more you catch this lying bastard with the facts the more he ‘doubles down’ on his original position by negating the sources of the new facts or undermining the character of the people (in most cases he says the Media) of those who are gathering the information (because they too have a manifest agenda). Ignorance is defined as a lack of information or knowledge or a lack of the opportunity to learn information or knowledge. Stupidity is “lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind; dull or senseless.”

In other words, it is the inability to learn because one believes that what they have statically and originally learned is better than what they can dynamically learn from the exposure to new and contradictory information. And even further down the list is a moron. A moron is “a person who is notably stupid AND is lacking in good judgment. Judgment is having a good sense of reality in relation to oneself in forming opinions that maintain the survival and benefit of oneself; whereas discernment is an acuteness of judgment and understanding to the point where one looks out for others as well as self. Judgment is in relation to ‘me’ while discernment is in relation to ‘we’.

But why do all of the Trump supporters hang on his every word and believe what this buffoon says? Is it because his explanations of plausible deniability ring true for what they want to believe more than what is actually true? Are they so rooted in their belief system that they ‘double down’ on new information with a ‘confirmation bias’? A confirmation bias is a “type of cognitive bias that involves favoring information that confirms previously existing beliefs or biases. A cognitive bias is “is a systematic error in thinking that affects the decisions and judgments that people make. Sometimes these biases are related to memory [Kendra Cherry, verywell.com].

When a person who has already favored information that supports their erroneous or accurate beliefs receives new information that is contradictory to that previously established bias, they ‘double down’ on those beliefs and it becomes a ‘re-confirmation bias’ that further entrenches both erroneous or accurate beliefs as being a higher level of truth; despite any information to the contrary. When many people who aren’t aware of these processes join together, it becomes a ‘mob’ mentality based on sheer emotional reaction more than discerning mental proaction.

George Carlin once said, “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” Even in the face of verified and validated contradictory evidence, a stupid person will ‘double down’ on what they believe out of fear of losing the very foundation of their ‘version’ of the truth! An ignorant person has the ability to learn and is ignorant because they haven’t seized the opportunity to learn. A stupid person has the opportunity to learn but not the ability to learn effectively. A moron uses his bad judgment in defending his ignorance or sheer stupidity. For example, Fox News in trying to discredit BHO showed picture after picture of BHO bowing to the Japanese leader. They started a campaign to discredit him for this behavior. In reality, he bowed because it was their custom. However, they conveniently forgot about when GWB bowed to the Saudi Arabian King! Talk about double standard!

People need to learn to stop reading what they believe into what others believe as something totally other than what was the truth. Every time anyone bows to the agenda manifestation of Faux News we all lose a piece of our soul to ignorance. Republicans, for the most part, aren’t bad people. They are misdirected by their media to fear what they don’t understand more than have faith in what we can do with what we don’t understand. Even die-hard Republican Nicole Wallace (former Communications Director for GWB) commended Obama's DNC speech as addressing who we really are over what Trump believes we are. She did NOT vote for her boss John McCain because Sarah Palin was on the ticket and she knew just how much of a disaster she was. She followed her conscience; even to the detriment of her boss!

It is OK to follow your conscience; however, when following your conscience limits your ability to effectively launch better change for all of us, then it can be a detriment. Like the ‘Bernie or Bust’ people are doing; don’t cut off your nose to spite your face! In other words, don't engage in acts of anger, stubbornness or revenge that will hurt you more than it hurts anyone else. If these people don’t vote for HRC, then it will give DJT an edge. This is the edge he has counted on since he entered the POTUS race last year. Our lives are NOT a reality show; they ARE reality! Treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve by not allowing a sheer buffoon to rise to the position of the leader of the free world.

All that we have strived for collectively will be undermined and undone. And this should happen because you refused to unconfirm your tainted belief system bias? Grow the fuck up; shut the fuck up; or go away into your little private world of sheer and utter fear and selfishness. May God bless you for being honest and may you bless yourself by seeking truth over erroneous beliefs. Tell DJT, “You’re fired!” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GETTING AWAY
WITH BULLSHIT

How does the Donald get away with his over the top bullshit? Why isn’t he charged and arrested for treasonous remarks? The same reason that the banks lent him more money after his bankruptcies. They would never get their money back unless they loaned him more.

The selfish constituency will never get their derogatory message of fear out unless they give him more space to spread it! A virus grows and spreads because of the fertile media in which it exists. Remove the fertility of lies and innuendo and the virus dies.

If you can’t kill fear with the truth, perhaps the realization of what is NOT true will kill the imposed fear of what might be the truth. The Donald’s bullshit will come back to haunt him soon when HRC humiliates him in the POTUS debates. He will NOT be able to recover from them because his moronity, stupidity and ignorance will be revealed once and for all.

The death of the Legend of The Donald is nigh. I am looking forward to experiencing it unfolding on the world stage. Go home Donald with your reptilian tail between your legs. Those of us who respect the wisdom of the seven sisters know exactly who and what you are! No more snatching of insects with your rapid and writhing tongue! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AN INFORMED OPINION

I don't believe what anybody tells me. I research the truth on my own and formulate an informed opinion. I do not troll other people's threads looking to validate my selfish ego like some do. I ferret out the facts on my own and I speak with authority because I have done the research.

You may argue principle with me, you may argue beliefs with me; you may challenge what I know; but never argue your opinion of the facts based on your selfish tunnel vision. I will shut down your façade; eliminate your bullshit; and nail you to the cross of truth.

As Daniel Moynihan once said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” You are welcome to debate me all you want but never challenge the truth with sheer and utter bullshit. I will make sure that everyone knows exactly what you are doing and why you are doing it. I love my friends here on FB and some of their friends have repeatedly trolled my threads with their ego, Trumpisms and negative Hillaryisms.

Please, do us all a favor and go to where those who are ignorant of the facts, truth and reality dwell and sell your wares there. I will not hesitate to challenge you, berate you and block you. You see, I have lived 62 years on this planet and I am NO respecter of persons. I do respect the Divine and I will defend the truth at all costs.

So, if you want to be ignorant and not do the work to discover the truth, then go elsewhere and do what you believe you should do. It is NOT welcome here. I invite discourse and opinions based on FACTS and NOT bullshit beliefs. May God bless you and your families now and evermore! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LURKING AROUND
THE CORNER

While you are convincing yourself that you are right about issues and things when you haven’t put the time in to learn about those issues and things, there is something that is lurking around the corner. It is something that will shatter your world and turn you around. It is silent, yet speaks volumes.

It is hidden, yet obvious. It is easily known, yet most choose to avoid it because fear it. It is spoken with coloring, to make it more palatable. It is referred to as being what we embody, but we seldom fulfill our responsibility to uphold what it represents. It is revealed only when the layers of camouflage are removed and it can be seen for what it really is.

It is something we seek outside of ourselves and rarely find. It is something we know inherently; only to deny what it is for us to feel safe, secure and comfortable. It is something we need to live by, live for and live in. It is something beyond those who are selfish can ever see because it strips one’s cloak, facade and image that we want to portray to others.

It is eternal, profound and accurate. It is the truth. Embrace it, be it and love it. It truly WILL set you free to be the divine spiritual being that you have always been, are now and will always be. Be ye therefore a person who honors the truth above all else by sharing Divine love with all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROPAGANDA WEBSITES

Please everyone! There has been a proliferation of Right wing and Left wing propaganda websites popping up all over the web. Before you repost what they say check out if what they are saying is true. Then, make sure that at least three websites corroborate what they say is true. Finally, go to their about pages and see who owns them. In other words, see where the money comes from to support these websites. When you follow the money you will see who is saying what they WANT you to believe. Here is a link to Exposing the Truth.

GOING TO THE PAST

When you can’t find something bad against someone’s position in the now, then the tendency is to dig up their distant past and stick it to them in order to justify your erroneous conclusions about their position.

Remember, that your position is based on your limited vision of what they have considered is their accurate position from their lived experience; just as your accurate position is what you have considered from your lived experience.

Truth is NOT in concepts but the result yielded from you experiencing life in alignment with your concepts, principles and understandings.

Live and let live only to the point where letting what others live interferes with how you have chosen to live. Be perfect in SELF more than self. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A TAKE ON SOCIALISM

A Libertarian friend of mine here on Facebook that engages in many debates with me suggested that I read Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals by Saul Alinsky to adopt ‘his’ take on Socialism. He claims that “socialists lack the insight that ‘he who works for his own benefit works hardest’.” He then claims that “Democrats lack the insight that hordes of refugees are an existential threat to an established culture.” He ends with, “Ask any Native American.” First off, Mr. Alinsky was mentioned in Ben Carson’s speech at the RNC 2016 Convention. Here is what Carson said, “Now one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky and her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky.

This was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently.” He added, “This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says, ‘In God we trust.’ So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?” I would add that the key verb there isn’t just “acknowledges” but “approves of.” Saul Alinsky, who lived from 1909-1972, was a community organizer from Chicago long before Barack Obama was. In fact, his 1971 book, Rules for Radicals, is like the Bible for community organizers. A committed Marxist, Alinsky grew up in a rough part of Chicago and worked hard to implement social justice, as he understood it---which included applying his philosophy that whatever it takes to bring about change is good, even if that involves questionable means (Jerry Newcombe).”

Don’t most Evangelical Christians acknowledge Lucifer? In my experience, many Christians talk more about ‘the enemy’, ‘the devil’ and ‘Satan’ MORE than they talk about the love of Christ!!! Just because someone ‘acknowledges’ the devil does NOT mean that they worship him. This is why I have said time and again that Ben Carson is dangerous. His assumptions are erroneous just as his antiquated philosophy is! What is “Rules for Radicals’? “Rules for Radicals has various themes. Among them is his use of symbol construction to strengthen the unity within an organization. He would draw on loyalty to a particular church or religious affiliation to create a structured organization with which to operate. The reason being that symbols by which communities could identify themselves created structured organizations that were easier to mobilize in implementing direct action. Once the community was united behind a common symbol, Alinsky would find a common enemy for the community to be united against.

The use of common enemy against a community was another theme of Rules for Radicals, with nonviolent conflict as a uniting element in communities. Alinsky would find an external antagonist to turn into a "common enemy" for the community within which he was operating. Often, this would be a local politician or agency that had some involvement with activity concerning the community. Once the enemy was established, the community would come together in opposition of it. This management of conflict heightened awareness within the community as to the similarities its members shared as well as what differentiated them from those outside of their organization. The use of conflict also allowed for the goal of the group to be clearly defined. With an established external antagonist, the community’s goal would be to defeat that enemy [Wikipedia.com].”

Now, let’s examine the erroneous statement, “socialists lack the insight that ‘he who works for his own benefit works hardest’.” This is a common and unjustified conclusion accepted by many conservatives as true. In fact, it is repeated over and over again to cement their erroneous beliefs of ‘bootstrapping’. That erroneous philosophy that claims that the individual only becomes successful by “relying entirely on one's efforts and resources by being self-generating and self-sustaining [dictionary.com].” The major problem with ‘bootstrapping’ is that one needs to have the ‘boots’ (or resources) to ‘bootstrap’. When Barack Obama stated that, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen”, Mitt Romney and his allies attacked President Barack Obama out of context because of THEIR bootstrapping philosophy. “There’s no question Obama inartfully phrased those two sentences, but it’s clear from the context what the president was talking about.

He spoke of government — including government-funded education, infrastructure and research — assisting businesses to make what he called “this unbelievable American system that we have.” In summary, he said: “The point is … that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together (Eugene Kiely). Socialists recognize the validity and NECESSITY of community in accomplishing anything. Elizabeth Warren once said, “There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory. Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

This is an accurate statement of our shared social contract. Not that we are all lazy and listless participants in the lives of those who work hardest; but the fact that we all SHARE in the fruits of our MUTUAL labors!!! My friend then claims that “Democrats lack the insight that hordes of refugees are an existential threat to an established culture.” What established culture? One that erroneously built on existential concepts of self-sufficiency that really DON’T exist? What is existentialism anyway? Existentialism is a term applied to the work of certain late-19th- and 20th-century European philosophers who, despite profound doctrinal differences shared the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject—not merely the thinking subject, but the acting, feeling, living human individual.

While the predominant value of existentialist thought is commonly acknowledged to be freedom, its primary virtue is authenticity. In the view of the existentialist, the individual's starting point is characterized by what has been called "the existential attitude," or a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world. Many existentialists have also regarded traditional systematic or academic philosophies, in both style and content, as too abstract and remote from concrete human experience [Wikipedia.com].” In other words, an overly pragmatic approach to life without any regard to spiritual principles or devices because what is NOT seen does not exist and what IS seen is the only affectation to be considered. Even though the existentialist seeks to deny lofty philosophical positions, it fails miserably because it becomes a belief system that relies on erroneous beliefs.

Our ‘established culture’ is one that is based on immigration. We have succeeded and sustained our existence, growth and expansion by opening our doors to increase the flow of progressive ideas and NOT the stagnation of an ‘established culture’ that is lily white and erroneously believes in the limitation of natural, human AND spiritual resources. Our true strength comes from our collective use of our ingenuity, strength and mutual resolve; NOT from rugged individualism. Don’t buy this well-packaged pile of smelly bullshit. It is NOT reality. It is an erroneous philosophy that denigrates us all with lies and false suppositions. It IS a bill of goods that are NOT good for us at all! Finally, my friend claims to “Ask any Native American.” First, they are NOT Native Americans. That was a term invented by the government to identify them collectively. Some tribes reject that nomenclature completely!

However, his analogy refers to an established culture that has been adversely affected by the introduction of new cultures. In this case, yes, the Indians openly invited in other cultures to their unfortunate detriment. Not because they created their own problems; but because they had to deal with greedy, obstinate and selfish people OF those cultures that took advantage of their openness and willingness to share. So, in this day and age we have refugee vetting to only allow those without a clandestine and disruptive agenda to enter our country. Remember, MOST refugees are leaving Syria NOT because they want to come here to kill us like the fearful conservative Republicans WANT you to believe; it is because they are FLEEING from the terrorists. Some people cannot see this at all because they are BLINDED by fear.

When fear rules your life you are NOT being spiritually sound or guided by Divine love. In summation, we are NOT islands separated by vast bodies of water. It is the oceans of Divine love that connect us with the ebb and flow of life when we seek a collective understanding of our unity in diversity. We ARE all stronger together. As the Muslim Father Khizr Khan said to Donald Trump at his speech at the DNC, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.” Anyone who believes that ‘it doesn’t take a village’ is NOT dealing with reality. Grow up and come to know that we all need each other not to just survive; but to strive for equanimity and thrive for prosperity together. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESERVOIRS

As we all live our lives we build up reservoirs of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors that we draw upon in living our lives. Where do these reservoirs reside? Are they just constructs that we create to deal with life by surviving, striving and thriving? Or are they simply energies that are manifested in different ways from our ‘storage tanks’ containing expressed energies? When a browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari) in a computer gets overloaded with too many files, it becomes necessary to ‘flush your cache’. Your cache is a hidden and temporary virtual storage tank that allows fast access to data. It is a reservoir of ‘files’ that can be easily and quickly accessed.

A browser is a software program that interfaces your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors to get you to where you want to go to learn something. It converts your typed or spoken commands into an access point of the Internet. A search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Info) allows you to type key search words to find what you are looking for and yields the results in a graphical or textual manner. In others words, the search engine within the browser re-creates what you are thinking about, what you are feeling you need to know, what you believe you will find, what words you formulate, the actions of moving thought into form and physically typing these words into the search engine.

When the answers come on a web page they are temporarily stored in the ‘cache’. When the cache becomes overloaded, the browser becomes sluggish and what once was retrieved quickly now takes more time and generates emotional frustration in the user. The ‘cache’, or reservoir of ‘files’, burdens the timing and rhythm of the entire operation. A reservoir is place where anything is collected or accumulated in great amount as a reserve. Your energies, both positive and negative, are stored in your personal ‘cache’ as a means of remembering your experiences and the conclusions you derived from those experiences. The energies contained in your personal cache exist as extremes and the shades of grey in between.

Energies are represented by what is called a waveform. A waveform reveals the amount and frequency of energies over time. If you look at a waveform you witness a crest and a trough; a high point and a low point that are inextricably tied to one another. They exist together over time. Part of the time they are positive and the other part of the time they are negative. They exist TOGETHER as one appearing as both extremes AND the shades of grey in between. If we focus on and choose too much of one extreme of these energies, their characteristics ‘spill over’ into our lives co-creating EXACTLY what we hold true!

For example, when gas accretes in space it is attracted by dark matter (unseen matter) that acts as a scaffolding to congeal the gas and create pressure. Over time, this pressure increases so much that gravity (centripetal forces) pushes down on it to the point that the gas fuses and radiates energies outward (centrifugal forces) in order to counterbalance the effect of the enormous amount of gravity. The input mechanism creates the output mechanism and the waveforms move in and out of these mechanisms exchanging energies in a dance that generates and contains that which it creates. A star is a reservoir of gravity and radiation that has achieved a relative balance. As energy is expressed, we view these stars that are millions of lights away.

However, when these energies pass by certain highly gravitational points in space, they become distorted because gravity can bend even the fastest form of energy that we can perceive; photons. This process is called 'gravitational lensing'. Through intense mathematical operations, we can compensate for these distortions in order to pinpoint the exact position of a star relative to its distortion. When the energies of gravity are so strong that they ‘overspill’ into space; the origin and movement of light becomes distorted. It is much the same with our individual and personal reservoirs when they ‘overspill’ with too much one-sided energy that we hold as true. Our perceptions of these energies become distorted by the overflowing of our reservoirs. Some people cannot or will not see the divine forces of the ‘unseen’ affecting and moving the ‘seen’.

They misinterpret what they see as being mundane when in fact it is divine in nature. Their perceptions of what you are doing become skewed by their selfish belief systems that identify what is divine as being ‘ego’ and they can't seem to recognize the difference! Their reservoirs are so filled with one-sided energies that they, by default, choose to align themselves with those energies in order to resolve their feelings about those energies. In other words, you become what you feel and believe you are because you are fearful of what you actually are and what you KNOW you should be. Your storage tank of ‘perceived energies’ are retrieved until new information that has been tested and verified has been accepted as real. Like a browser that returns to a website that has been visited before, you retrieve the files that are stored in your cache and view them as they were in the past instead of how they have been updated and need to be viewed in the present.

In order to do this you must ‘refresh’ your browser. In Windows you press ‘F5’ and in Mac you press ‘Command+R’. This ‘refreshes’ or removes what you are currently seeing AND renews is with the latest files that are new to the website. When your browser’s cache becomes overloaded and your browser slows down to a snail’s pace, you flush your cache by holding down simultaneously ‘Control+Shift+Delete’ in Windows or holding down ‘Control+Alt+e’ in a Mac. These commands, in effect, empty the storage tank of files and allow you to begin again to allow NEWER and more up-to-date files to be loaded into the storage tank. How do you do this in your own life? You can flush your own personal cache by focusing in prayer on what you want to achieve in the present.

You make the time each and every day in meditation to release the old files that are no longer valid for your growth and expansion. You take the newer downloaded files to share with others in Divine service in order to co-create a truer and newer experience for all. As long as you emotionally react to what is stored in your reservoir you are NOT growing and expanding. When you learn to proact from what is stored in your reservoir you learn to do what it takes to ‘flush your cache’ and create a new and better reality for everyone. Clean up the extraneous files in your computer AND your life by doing what it takes to allow the best to happen for all. Don’t resist how your life is slowing down into mediocrity. Flush your cache and remove that which is no longer needed for your ongoing growth and expansion.

You deserve the best and you will only get the best when you allow yourself to receive the best. If your personal cache is loaded with useless garbage, how can the goodness you desire fill up your tank unless you learn how to remove the negative garbage from the tank FIRST? Pray to open your mind to Divine guidance; meditate to receive Divine guidance in God’s voice of silence and stillness; use your received Divine guidance to better the world in which you live. These are the elements of Divine communication. Are you utilizing them or living from the garbage of erroneous beliefs that are stagnating, fermenting and festering in your inner reservoir of thoughts, feelings and beliefs? It is up to you to do the work. No one else can do it for you. Be blessed by daily flushing your cache! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
