IMPOSSIBLE?

What are the things that are impossible? Anything that is definitely not possible, unable to be, something that can be done or exist, or even conceivable of happening, are the things that are impossible. From the Latin ‘possibilitatem’, is where the term possibilities originates. A possibility is a manifested occurrence that ‘could’ happen if all the appropriate conditions are right. In other words, a possibility is something that can possibly occur. A probability, however, is something that has a strong likelihood of occurring. It is a possible scenario like a possibility; however the conditions and environment of it occurring are very favorable.

When you are seeking to discover the truth, you can examine all of the facts and observe the information gathered from those facts and evaluate ‘possibilities’ and ‘probabilities’. After you have eliminated the possibilities and honed down the probabilities to determine their veracity and validate their occurrences, you can get a pretty good idea as to whether or not they are possible or impossible. It is true that when you have eliminated the impossible, that whatever remains, however improbable that it may definitely occur, that the truth will be revealed.

It is always the one thing that you believed would act a certain way and you ignored it behaving differently that will rise up and sucker you into believing that it will always act the way it always has in the past. Don’t assume anything. Plan for contingencies and expect the expected AND the unexpected. Dealing with life demands that you observe, perceive and conceive that which is favorable to your joyful existence. Eliminate what’s impossible and improbable with an open mind to just what you believed could never happen.

It is your belief that distracts you from what you know within. Infer from the facts and listen to the guidance of your inner well-being before you form and opinion on anything. You will save yourself a great deal of grief when you temper your belief! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

KeeNotes

SEEING WHAT IS REAL

Only when you study the original Aramaic and Koine Greek translations of the 'Bible' do you come to see what is real.

The 'misreading of scripture through western eyes' comes from a lack of understanding of the geographic and cultural idioms of the time in which the books of the Bible were written.

A qualitative and quantitative analysis of scripture in comparison yields many congeals and/or distractions from the truth that is being imparted.

Only a discerning eye can see the underlying value in the allegories and metaphors of the Bedouin 'type' people. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LAST QUESTION

Why aren’t you living in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance?

Why aren’t you experiencing peace, understanding, joy and Divine love each and every moment of your life?

Why do you feel that you have been slighted by life somehow?

Is it because you keep asking why when you should be asking why not? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LAST QUESTION

Honey Automatic Savings Coupons

MORE VALID?

How can you tell when an Atheist is losing an argument? They keep trying to convince you and everyone that their observations, perceptions and beliefs are somehow more valid than yours.

All things being equal, then what anyone else feels, believes and conceives are not only predicated by the facts that are observed, but by the subjectivity of the brain to ensuring self-survival at all costs.

Never allow uneducated, insensitive and fact denying individuals to skew your assessment of reality. Reality ultimately is what one perceives AFTER it is filtered through their belief system.

If their belief system is skewed to deny things that DO exist beyond their sensory capabilities then it is their selfish ego that is trying to convince others that what they experience is more of the truth than what another experiences.

Truth is not dependent on anyone’s assessment of it. It stands alone whether you see the entire picture or not. Be ye therefore perfect in your understanding of reality more than even considering the assessment of those who cannot see beyond their senses. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MASTERING YOUR ACTIONS

Life is an ongoing process of letting of your transitory wants in order to meet your needs and expecting the perfect unfolding of your Divine desires in Divine order.

It is in mastering your actions following your whims that sets the tone for your Divine desires to be completely understood so that you can effectively act on their manifestation.

Be ye therefore perfect by disciplining yourself to expect what is divinely in your heart. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TRINITY

What is the true trinity of prayer, mediation and service? Prayer and meditation are the individual aspects of this triune of living, whereas service is the collective and integrative aspect where we ‘step out’ of ourselves and share our blessings with others. In order to serve we must not only understand where others are, but get down in the dirt with them in order to uplift and truly serve. Pious and self-righteousness will NEVER get you there!

Only empathy and the true sharing of Divine love will. Get out of your comfort zone and be the change that you want in this world and in the lives of others. As a good friend once said: "You need to be willing to eat with these guys [the homeless], cry with them, laugh with them, wear the same donated clothes they wear. You've gotta be one of them before you can serve them." ~Bobby Hinkle (excerpted from his book "Rite of Passage").

Until you walk a mile in someone else’s shoes you will never fully understand why they made the choices they have and how they have come to adapt to the results of those choices. Be ye therefore perfect in how you share Divine love in Divine service to others. May your life be filled with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHEATING

When you choose to deny that which is in favor of that which is convenient or comfortable for you, you are cheating not only yourself but the rest of us as well from your dynamic assessment of your experiences in life. Taking the easy road reveals a mindset that dislikes the challenges necessary to move forward in unfolding your dreams and a heartset that fears ‘what might happen’ more than knowing the faith necessary to trust in sharing Divine love.

Mediocrity is a deep well of personal comfort that is difficult to climb out of because it is warm, cozy and secure. The walls might be slick from your own convenience but you can climb out when you choose to know your Divine destiny and trust in the Divine process. Let go of what you ‘believe’ you need to do in order to be whom and what you were created to be. Stop complaining about the slickness of the walls and forge your way to the top where freedom abounds.

Share Divine love with all despite whether they do or not. Be the perfect being you were created to be without any internal emotional assessments that deny your divinity. Face the challenges and forge your path. See the end result of your journey and feel the joy from arriving. Take that deep breath of “I did it” and live in inner peace. The beauty of everything can only be witnessed from the mountaintop. Stop settling for living on one side of the mountain where the view is limited and comfortable.

Move forward into your Divine destiny by allowing that which created you to bring you into the purpose of your creation. May God bless you on your infinite journey! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Guidance Channel

SAYING YES

Your inner spirit always says ‘yes’ to what edifies you. The nay-sayers may come and go because it is their egos that are denying that which fulfills your destiny.

Ego strives to get its ‘place in line’ while spirit allows your blessings to come where you are now.

Don’t fret over those who question you, hurt you or despise you. Their actions reveal just who and what they are more than what you are. Send them love and move forward into being whom and what you were created to be.

Your living in the joy of your experiences is never predicated by their assessment of your situation and whether or not they condone your actions.

It is when you believe what they say more than what you know within is when you have given away your personal power to be the perfect being you were created to be.

Have faith in the Divine and trust the Divine process to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WE MORE THAN ME

Life: The expression of your being when you stop being selfish and start being selfless.

When you are preoccupied with ‘me’ instead of integrating with ‘we’ you are more concerned about what you can get than what you can give.

Live life to the fullest by sharing Divine love with all; bless all of life with your choice to give! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Post

REGULATIONS

It should be against the law for banks to make loans with our money and not cut us in the interest that they and they alone, profit on!

On top of that, they charge so many fees for this and that when in fact; it is again OUR money that they are using.

Banking regulation does NOT need to be lessened; it needs to be hardened! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SELFLESSNESS

Selfishness always focuses on how it affects 'me'; selflessness always focuses on how it affects 'we'. Are we not in this together? Are we not our brother's and sister's keepers? Are we not here to share Divine love and provide each other with opportunities to grow and expand Divine love with all?

If you believe that you are not then God bless you in your assessment of reality. I will take your erroneous beliefs and flush them down the toilet where they belong with the rest of B.S. that is repeatedly perpetrated on the rest of us.

Don't claim to be a Christian and ignore what Christ said. Don't claim to be loving and turn the other way when you can give love to help another. Don't be good to others so that you can feel good about yourself.

Be good to others to make THEM feel good about themselves and realize that THAT is the sharing of Divine love. Be ye therefore loving more than fearful of what others 'might' think! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FALSE PRIDE

Lose your false pride. Stop caring about what others think. Cast your fears to the wind and trust in the Divine. Don’t allow fear to be overcome by false pride.

You will never get close to your dreams until you discharge false pride. The Divine has always provided for each and every one of us and always will.

We all need to discharge our false pride and admit when we are not fulfilling our innermost dreams. Only when we let go of what we believe will we come into what we know; that we are Divine love in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CASTING PEARLS

Always remember that negative behavior by others is revealing just how unaware they are; it is not you. If your heart is pure and focused on someone or something then you are aware of your inner beauty.

We all cast pearls to swine sometimes because we like to believe in people. Instead of believing in people who are not worthy of our devotion, learn to read their beliefs, words and behaviors that will tip you off to where they are with their heart.

You are worth the truth and the best. Don't allow others to treat you any other way. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YOUR INNER WELL BEING

Deep within your inner heart

Lies your inner well-being

It is your source of truth

It is what gives you meaning

When you listen only to your head

You will be lead astray

When you listen to your inner heart

You’ll live fulfilled every day!

WHAT GIVES?

GIVE IT AWAY NOW

When you give away

What you desire the most

Your spirit will blossom

Your ego won’t boast

For in your sharing

Of what makes you complete

You share Divine love

And your life will forever be replete

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

BEYOND YOUR REACH

When you define perfection

As being beyond your reach

You have expressed an untruth

And embraced a leach

You were created in Divine perfection

Though you might not know

If you cannot learn this truth

You will never grow

Be at peace with your blessings

And live to grow

For in understanding your inner joy

Soon enough you will come to know

FIGHTING TO LET GO?

When you fight to do anything, you are not only resisting what is happening, you are pushing against its reality and imposing your will upon it. You are observing events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of people and making a judgment as to how these experiences are ultimately affecting you now and/or how they will affect you in the future.

You do this to ensure your self-survival at all costs. Where does this come from? Is it simply a biological imperative programmed into our DNA to react and lash out at what we perceive threatens our self-survival? Or is it a subconscious reaction accepted as real in order to justify a conscious choice to fight that which is ‘apparently’ harmful to us?

Yes, letting go is a hard choice when you have been programmed all of your life to fight that which is ‘apparently’ against you. We are constantly barraged with ‘fighting cancer’, ‘fighting obesity’ and ‘fighting poverty’ without ever learning the lesson that ‘what we resist persists’ (Carl Gustav Jung).

The more you push against something the more you put conscious attention to it, thus reinforcing subconsciously programmed emotional reactions to the point where you accept it as ‘the way it is’. It is ‘the way it is’ only because you have accepted it as being so. It could be guilt for aberrant behaviors, anger toward someone who took advantage of you, unrequited love, losing what you value or betrayal of a loved one.

Change is never easy when you acclimate yourself to ‘the way it is’ because you ‘believe’ that ‘the way it is’ will never change! The culprit here is your pre-programmed belief system which houses your accurate AND erroneous beliefs! How many times do things have to happen before you accept them as being ‘the way it is’? Once, twice, thrice? Or do you examine your experiences thoroughly enough to determine exactly why they occurred and whether or not you are responsible for them occurring and whether or not you feel accountable for their occurrences?

You are not the be all and end all of all experiences in this vast omniverse but you do affect what happens in your segment of it. Change is NEVER easy when you FIGHT to hold on and you FIGHT to let go. How in the hell can you fight to let go anyway? These two states are diametrically opposed to each other in reality. You can FIGHT to hold on, but how can you fight to let go? How you use your words and their definitions contributes to how you react to your experiences in life. Instead of reacting, choose to proact by NOT fighting!

Instead, allow what happens to pass through you without attaching any negative reactive emotions to it and changing now becomes easy! Allow things to be as they are and promote positive change by NOT fighting the apparent negative circumstances. Stay focused on that which supports allowance and that which diminishes resistance. Stop pushing against things and you will be free to co-create better things! Channel your energy into building new and better paradigms instead of tearing down that which you ‘believe’ is counterproductive. R. Buckminster Fuller once said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

The new model of collective behavior is developing an attitude of acceptance and allowance; not tolerance and resistance. Tolerance is of the ego and is internally saying, “I am going to believe what I believe despite what you believe; I will not fight your beliefs even though I believe they are wrong.” This is selfishness at best. Acceptance is saying, “I will accept what you believe and not attach any emotions to fighting what you believe because I KNOW that in doing that, I am judging you by what I believe.” It is not our job to judge others for what they do in their lives but it IS our job to discern what they are doing and how it affects us.

If their ‘beliefs’ and behaviors are detrimental to our mutual growth and expansion, then we need to identify them as such. Why? Because some will make their beliefs and behaviors ‘appear’ as the truth in order to gain allies in supporting their reactions over what is ultimately the truth. Stop fighting that which appears as detrimental to our mutual growth and expansion and start allowing that which contributes to our mutual growth and expansion. How do we do this? By proacting instead of reacting.

By seeking mutual peace and making peace a priority. By seeking to understand as much as being understood. By choosing to live in joy instead of derision. By sharing Divine love instead of withholding what you believe you need to survive. It is up to you and you alone to allow change to be easy. It is only hard when you choose to resist instead of allow and to fight instead of living in mutual harmony. Be ye therefore an advocate of peace and not a warrior of fear, loathing and disharmony. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FEAR OF DEATH

Just like the radical KKK who used to burn crosses and hang Blacks and Jews the radical Islamists use fear of death to keep us in check, it is the only tool they have. I happen to know some very peaceful Muslims who are not only shocked by this behavior, but are deeply hurt that too many blame all of them for the actions of a few radicals.

The Syrian refugees coming to this country because they are RUNNING from ISIS! They want decent lives for their families JUST LIKE WE DO! Please, dear friends, don't listen to what the corporate news is telling you. They are outright lying to all of us to maintain the status quo of initiating the sale of war machines to bolster the military industrial complex.

It is greed and the belief of depleting the surplus population that are the motivating factors in countries going to war and fighting a ‘created’ and well-marketed enemy. We are all people and we need to look into our hearts to know the truth and stop listening to the utter bullshit in the media.

Trust in the Divine more than what you hear! May God bless all of you and your families! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE STATUS QUO

Some say that you can’t 'fight' the status quo. You know what, they are right. You can fight them but that is not how you stop the status quo from burying you in mediocrity. Allow them to be who they are and forge a different path where you employ more allowance than resistance.

Whatever your resist persists and what you allow in the now is what aligns you with Divine order. Fighting and resisting are the ego’s reaction to what it perceives is threatening its self-survival.

Being peaceful and allowing are your spirit’s proaction to what it ‘knows’ are meaningful solutions to the temporary circumstances that were created by you by reacting instead of proacting.

Trust in the Divine to guide your steps and allow that which knows everything to bring you into complete and utter fulfillment time and time again.

Be ye therefore resourceful in allowing Divine guidance to light your path with the illumination of Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RIGHTS

Rights are inalienable gifts given by the blessings of Divine love  that decent people who contribute to the growth and expansion of the collective of life enjoy. Rights are taken away by authority from those who use those rights to hurt others instead of contributing to the growth and expansion of all.

To afford equal rights to those who use them for their own gain by hurting others is tantamount to anarchy and not civilized order. Rights bestowed with equanimity only works when the collective values of mutual growth and expansion are concurrently applied by all.

If this weren't true, why then do we have law, order and prisons? Rights for the sake of rights without checks and balances are like the Conservative Republican viewpoints that are based on fear and greed being used to represent all when they are, in actuality, being used to uphold the greedy and selfish. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONQUERING WITH PEACE?

Conquering others with peace is NEVER giving them a piece of your mind. It is never trying to change them by presenting factual and logical arguments in an attempt to appeal to their ‘reason’. It is never riding the hamster wheel of purposeful enfoldment in order to derive reasonable ‘patterns of behavior’.

It IS being wise enough in actively allowing them to discover their own peace in their heart. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink it.

However, you can make the water look enticing enough for them to take a drink on their own. The battle you lose leads you into the war that you win. Be ye therefore a conqueror of spreading peace more than a winner in a skirmish that means nothing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only scientific evidence can accurately dispute scientific theory. Only enlightened truth can supersede erroneous beliefs.

When you live from inner truth you can collate the facts from possibilities into probabilities.

When you look outside of yourself for truth you discover challenges to your erroneous beliefs which undermine the true existence of 'reality'.

Be ye therefore honest and forthright in your assessment of the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEE BEYOND

When what you believe is always predicated by what you have observed, perceived and previously believed, your understanding of reality is filtered by the limitations of how you have gathered your observations (your senses), how they have become perceptions (your mind) and whether or not they align with what you already believe (your heart). Since your senses only reveal limited ranges of frequencies, they do not ‘feel’ all that there is to ‘feel’ in this vast omniverse.

Since your perceptions predominantly reveal what is essential to your self-survival, they tend to block out possibilities for progression based on fear of not surviving. Since your beliefs are merely repeated thoughts that you have accepted as true without verification of their veracity and validation of their occurrences, your probabilities for advancement and fulfillment become limited by your own beliefs in their actuality.

The system by which you absorb information and utilize that information for your individual AND collective growth and expansion is always nullified by what you believe. Therefore, it is in letting go of your beliefs of ‘how things are’ that you become totally free to live in how things ‘REALLY’ are!

Stop predicating your individual and collective fulfillment by your acceptance and steadfastness to erroneous beliefs. Only when you let go of what is holding you back will you be able to strive more than survive and ultimately thrive more than strive!

Be ye therefore perfect in your understanding that your beliefs are what hold you back from living a fulfilled and joyous life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PURPLE HEART

Exactly what does a purple heart mean? Is a symbol of sacrifice? A symbol for being in battle and becoming injured or killed in service to your country or cause? Or is it recognition for doing your part despite your fears of not surviving?

In Allan Wall’s article, “The Real Meaning of the Purple Heart” [FrontPageMagazine.com | July 26, 2005:], he states “The Purple Heart medal bears a likeness of George Washington. There's a reason for that. Like any good officer, General Washington understood the importance of rewarding deserving soldiers. So he would grant them commissions or promotions.

In 1782, the Continental Congress ordered him to stop doing this because Congress had run out of money. Seeking new ways to honor meritorious soldiers, Washington established the Badge of Military Merit. This badge was shaped like a heart and was purple, presumably chosen as it was the traditional color of royalty. It was awarded for meritorious service, not necessarily for being wounded in combat.

On August 7, 1782, at his headquarters at Newburgh, New York, General Washington wrote an official order authorizing the badge.” In essence, the medal denoted ‘meritorious’ service meaning "deserving of divine grace," [from the Latin meritorious "that for which money is paid, that by which money is earned,"].

When we ‘pay it forward’ by giving of ourselves to a worthy cause our hearts become ‘royal’ not only for recognizing Divine grace, but for living in it enough to commit Divine service to others. We all benefit from existing in Divine grace; it is in our choices that we either align with it or separate ourselves from it.

In this light, the Purple Heart is a symbol of living in Divine grace each and every moment of our lives. May all of your hearts bear the purple color of living in Divine grace and Divine blessings everlasting! Be ye therefore purple! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IT IS

The best in life comes when you allow it to be what it is and expect it to come when it should; not what you believe it should be or when it should arrive.

Anything else taints the purity of its essence and the timing of its divine expression.

Always expect the best to come exactly when it should and allow that which has given you life to determine exactly what it should be.

May God bless you and your families always! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CALLING THEM OUT

Calling someone out on their blatant bullshit is not necessarily hating them. It is pointing out the truth despite their twisted self-serving beliefs of their superiority and selfishness.

The truth is beyond anyone's version of it. It stands alone regardless of how those with agendas spin the facts to suit their twisted, selfish and self-serving beliefs. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DON'T DO WINDOWS?

What some call ego rationalization is, in actuality, spiritual guidance.

When you look out of a dirty window all you see becomes dirty.

Could it be time to clean that window so you can clearly see? Or is it more comfortable to live in mediocrity and laziness?

Only you can answer that! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Asking, Seeking, Knocking Aspects Of Humanity Attitudes To Be A Foursquare Approach To Unfolding Your Divine Purpose In Divine Order What Is Judgment? Maturity Overcoming The Seven Habits Of People Who Completely Trust In God How Do I Discover The Truth?

PROGRESS

It is better to bend over and move a perceived obstacle out of your path than to devise multiple ways of removing it that involve you having to do less work simply because you are too lazy to leave your comfort zone of mediocrity.

Progress comes from forging a straightforward pathway to your goal instead of taking many circuitous routes that are perceived as being convenient and easy.

A mindset of progress and a heartset of passion are better than a mindset of mediocrity and a heartset of laziness.

May you choose the path that brings you into your Divine purpose more than the path that is easy and convenient! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PARTICIPATION

Life is just not accomplishing the fulfillment of what you desire. It also requires interactions that ‘maintain’ the fulfillment of your desire. As with all things in life; they require the maintenance of a watchful eye and an open heart.

Without these attributes, what was once a blessing can become a curse loaded with regret and loss. Be diligent in recognizing that which is a blessing and giving it the life it needs over the acceptance that it will always be a blessing.

For when you are not paying attention to what you should is when it slips away without you noticing until it is too late. Be attentive and willing to support your blessings before they become what curses your heart.

Be ye therefore watchful and open to maintaining that which you cherish! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IGNORANCE

Ignorance is bliss because it is firmly rooted in mediocrity, laziness and the blind acceptance of things that reinforce what you believe more than what you need to know.

In knowingness lies the truth of all life and those who take the easy way of belief are so content in their comfort zone that they reject anything that challenges what they have accepted as true without validation.

When you are comforted by the safety of your beliefs more than the liberation from knowing, ignorance is a badge of honor to convince you and others of the validity of your existence despite the denial of the truth.

Accepting the truth and living for its expression is living in Divine allowance more than selfish belief. Only when you release that which is erroneous will you be able to embrace that which is accurate.

Be ye therefore accepting of Divine wisdom more than proliferating selfish ignorance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHERE YOU ARE
RIGHT NOW

Until you resolve yourself to happy where you are right now, you will not be able to accept yourself and express the gratitude to the Divine for ‘maintaining’ you as a ‘work in progress’. Get out of the mindset that states, I will feel ‘this’ when I get ‘that’. Feel ‘this’ now and you will set into motion getting ‘that’! Only until you ‘see’ the end result and ‘feel’ the joy of it will you be able accept yourself ‘as you are now’ and express true gratitude for your blessings of life; your talents, skills and abilities to share in Divine service to others. Do what your heart feels despite what your mind thinks.

When you focus too much on where you are now you lose the greater picture of where you will be. In being here now you learn that time is no more than fulfillment of your Divine purpose unfolding perfectly in Divine order. Allow it to unfold divinely while you exist naturally. Divine order ‘affects’ natural order when you stop fighting, resisting and complaining about where you are now as opposed to where you want to be. It is in your faith of becoming that which you desire that you set the wheels into motion to create beauty in your life.

It is in the complete and unwavering trust in the Divine that brings it about when it is supposed to happen for the greater purpose of all. Stop micro-managing each and every day as if that is where you will always be. The only way you can fill a glass with water is to keep POURING it in until it is filled. When you stop being and doing what you need to do to reap the blessings of fulfillment is when you are off course. Be present each and every day by being thankful for where you are NOW while ‘maintaining’ your vision of where you will be someday in the future!

Just like a house or a car requires ongoing maintenance you should make the time each and every day to go within and feel the joy of your inner well-being to create the thoughts in your mind that you are moving in the right direction to be completely fulfilled. Stop listening to others who nay-say, doubt or restrict the beauty of your dreams. Actualize your dreams each and every day by staying the course despite the changes in the wind. See where you know you should be and follow your heart to get there.

No one else has YOUR Divine purpose and you don’t have theirs. Listen to the still small voice of the Divine within and KNOW which way to go more than convincing yourself with your beliefs as to which way to go. Your beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts that you accept as true whereas Divine knowing is the inner feeling of peace amid chaos, understanding amid dissension, joy amid derision and Divine love amid acrimony. Live from your inner divinity more than your selfish ego. Be ye therefore divine in your nature and natural in your divinity! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ONLY BELIEVE

When you only believe

what you sense and perceive,

your mind will be deceived

by what you conceive.

When you only trust what

your mind says is real,

you are blocking the truth

that your heart says to feel.

~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
