DOING THE RIGHT THING

How do you know you are doing the right thing? When it seems like the whole world is crashing down on you! When you make a move forward and you’ve gone two steps backward. When you try to help someone and they spit in your face. When you go out of your way to do the best you can and you fall flat on your face. But why is this happening? Why must we endure the worst when we are giving our best?

Taking a stand on any issue means that you’ve put yourself and your feelings ‘out there’. It means that you have stepped boldly out and have become vulnerable with your feelings. It is your feelings about life that must grow and that is why it is happening. You can be the best educated, most popular and most successful person on the planet but until you know how to handle your feelings you are a mess!

Your feelings are your direct indicators of how 'what you are thinking about' either works or doesn’t work. If you are not in command of your feelings, you don’t have command of your life. Being in command of your life means that listen to your ego’s demands just enough to ensure your self-survival AND you listen to the still small voice of the Divine guiding and inspiring you with new and effective ideas to make you grow and expand.

Don’t allow your feelings to change who you are and don’t resist them either. Allow them to ‘indicate’ what is working and not working and don’t attach the rest of your life to them. They are a by-product of whom and what you are and they are NOT you! Be the child of the Most High that you are and be in command by balancing your ego with the guidance from the Spirit of God.

Your feelings will indicate when this is working and when it isn’t. If you feel badly, then it isn’t working. If you feel fulfilled, then it is working. It’s as simple as that. Pay attention to the guidance you receive and ACT on it. Don’t crawl up into a ball and seek the sympathy of others. Stand up and move toward what you want and don’t allow the words and behaviors of others to thwart your progress. Be diligent and be strong.

It is your destiny to become whom and what you were created to be. It is up to you to use your feelings to ‘guide’ you and not ‘rule’ you. Know that the Divine is there every moment to nurture your desire, fulfill your expectations and create health, wealth, prosperity and abundance in your life.

Be firm and in command by letting go of everything that doesn’t serve your individual AND collective growth and expansion. Feel good about yourself by allowing yourself to be the child of the Most High that you truly are. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

Shades Of Grey

COMING TO TERMS
WITH HATRED

One day all of those who hate and fear what others represent to their prejudices will come to terms with their hatred; whether they believe in God or not.

When they do, they will remember the hatred and vitriol that they have levied against an innocent teenager who was attacked by a woman-beating vigilante with hatred in his heart.

They have backed the wrong pony and they WILL pay dearly for that; mark my words...they WILL pay. God bless them and their childish and fearful hearts.

For in their hatred they have denied their own divinity and in that they have doomed themselves to a living death.

Without love in their hearts they are merely ‘existing’ and will never know the true joy of living in Divine love.

Peace and blessings to all of you who know the blessings of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MOTIVATION?

And before that you must elect those who govern who are not motivated by greed and are motivated by public service; without that, you have elected representatives that are serving two masters and we all know which one they will obey! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE VOICE OF GOD

You are the voice of God. You are endowed with the spirit within and that spirit speaks through you when you allow yourself to be that spirit unfettered by the yearnings of your ego.

Speak from the Divine spirit within and bless your life and the lives of others with Divine truth. All it takes is you getting out of your own way and allowing the Divine to move your heart and mind to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Speak Divine wisdom, speak from the heart and speak loving support to all that need it. It is the Divine working through you because you are an individualized expression of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BOTTOM LINE

If your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors do NOT contribute to the growth and expansion of all of life existing in the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love of the Kingdom of God on Earth, then they are from your ego and your ego alone!

Ego does whatever it can to ensure your self-survival and all that you express whereas the Spirit of God guides you to thriving in the Kingdom of God on Earth. Don’t believe me? That is your right!

However, when you resist living in your natural states of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance it is you who is separating yourself from the Source Creator of the entire omniverse. No one else but you.

Make the necessary steps to align yourself with the guidance from the Divine by helping others become whom and what they were created to be and you will be blessed with the desires of your heart.

Plain and simple; however, too simple for most. May God bless you each and every day of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO ROGER

LISTEN

Remember that when you let go of what you feel you need it no longer has power over your ego and you are free from your attachment to it until you feel you need it again. Your thoughts are connected to your feelings and your feelings are connected to your thoughts.

Get off the hamster wheel and listen to the guidance of the Divine to feel your way through life while unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order. The feelings that come from your thoughts are more reactive than the thoughts that come from your feelings.

Make your thoughts proactive no matter what you feel and focus on what makes you feel fulfilled and let go of what distracts you. Until you do, you will be treading water and wasting your energy on what does not bring you into complete fulfillment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU A NATURAL?

You are a natural. You came out of the womb of nature and contain the history of the omniverse within your body. You are the result of the life and death of the cosmic nebula nurseries where stars were born and the galaxies in which they lived and died. Every atom and molecule in your body has existed in many other forms over the billions of years of omniversal existence.

We are born with the ability to choose which way to proceed in the omniverse and we identify this as being free will. In essence, we have the ability to choose but all of our choices will not yield effective survival or the ongoing state of thriving. Why is that? Why would we choose that which doesn’t yield the results that we are seeking? It is not because we don’t know what to choose, it is that we choose what we feel is right for us.

We allow our feelings to set the tone for our lives. Most people don’t think about which way to proceed; they emotionally react to perceived events, situations, occurrences, circumstances and the behavior of others in a way that ‘ensures’ their self- survival at all costs. Instead of ‘thinking’ things through and proacting in such a way as to create an environment of mutual thriving, we react to our perceptions in a way that is selfish and self-serving. After all, how can we integrate ourselves into an environment of mutual thriving if we don’t survive? Our focus on our safety, security and comfort overrides the needs of others when we allow our egos to rule our lives.

Our focus on mutual growth and expansion only overrides our egos quest for center stage when we allow the Divine to guide us into ongoing perceptions and dynamic states of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Our choices are living in a static and unyielding attitude of selfishness or a dynamic and flexible attitude of sharing Divine love. When we effectively balance these choices each and every day we ARE unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order. We are living as the proactive children of the Most High and not automatons that react to the motions of the omniverse.

Our natural state of existence IS health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. It is our ego’s choice to NOT live in those natural states by separating ourselves from others and the Divine. Coming into an ongoing state of Divine Oneness is letting go of that which does not edify us and sharing that which encourages others. It is the omniversal balance of living in Divine love. Living in our natural states will create our experiences peace, understanding, joy and Divine love each and every moment of our lives. After all, it is ultimately our choice. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

If you own a gun it is your ego that wants the power over the life and death of another that you perceive is trying to hurt you, kill you or steal your property. Basically, it is living in fear and not Divine trust! Argue that one, gun nuts! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I would rather have a heart that shares Divine love than one that only thinks of itself and its needs. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Throw out all of your erroneous beliefs and what's left is a complete awareness and experience of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you let go of who you think you are and feel you are you leave yourself open to being what you know you are. Why aren’t you letting go? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR SENSES

Atheists rant and rave about the ‘fact’ that there is no God. What they are referring to as a 'deity' is their perception of an ‘external’ deity and is not the Spirit of God! The Spirit of God is not 'out there' but within each and every one of us. I have been asked by a friend to ‘rethink’ my explanation of living under the ‘rule’ of the ego as opposed to living from the Spirit of God. I will NOT rethink what I have said because it CAME from that same spirit within me; not from the external atheistic viewpoint that in itself is valid when you speak of an external 'deity'; but NOT about the Spirit of God within.

Look within, dear friends; for that is where the Spirit of God exists guiding and directing you to health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Peace, understanding, joy and living in Divine love only come when you recognize, listen to and live from the Spirit of God within. Everything else comes from your ego and NOT from the Spirit of God.

The funny thing about the atheistic viewpoint of life is that it is the egos of the atheists that are denying God to edify their own existence. That is why their egos refuse to acknowledge a Higher Power; it threatens their egos’ selfish command structure. They cannot see ‘beyond’ themselves because they are completely absorbed in ‘self’ without any regard for ‘SELF’. The ‘proof’ that they offer is based on the perceptions of the perceived dualistic reality reflected on the omniversal stage. They don’t seem to understand or even care about the fact that their perceptions are electro-chemical copies in their brains that come from the limited reception of their senses.

The majority of existence is in the realm of what we cannot sense and they base all of existence only what they can sense. Don’t entertain the entirety of existence on the atheistic viewpoint because it doesn’t reveal what transpires in 95% of omniversal existence (dark energy and dark matter); it is limited to 5% of the ‘sensed’ omniverse (energy and matter).

Don’t be fooled by what you sense as being all that there is. The unseen drives the seen and just because you can’t sense it, doesn’t mean it is not there! Only a fool denies what is beyond in favor of the limitation of the senses. Am I calling all Atheists fools? You bet I am!  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BELIEVING

Don’t waste your time believing in the Divine. Beliefs are no more than repeated thoughts accepted as true and programmed into your subconscious mind as rigid concepts of reactive behaviors. Stop believing in God and start knowing the existence of the Divine Infinite Spirit within each and every one of us by developing faith in your Higher SELF.

This ongoing assurance of faith in your Higher Power wells up within you until you learn how to ‘trust’ in the Divine Infinite Spirit to guide you to the complete fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order. All of this is necessary to teach your ego that the programmed beliefs of life that it has so diligently worked at are NOT what life is all about.

This threatens the ego’s existence because the ego has to constantly validate itself to ensure its self worth. The ego only has beliefs to control, dominate and manipulate its effect on its ‘perceived’ environment whereas the Spirit of God within you is a ‘knowing’ that comes from Divine faith and trust in ACTION. Not a static state of ego gratification but a dynamic state of spiritual edification.

Live from the knowingness of the Spirit of God within and teach your ego that your beliefs are not necessary in relation to following the guidance of the Divine Infinite Spirit Creator of the entire omniverse. Teach your ego well. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ACCESS

If the heart of an individual who is suffering from some pain and emotional aberrance did not have access to a weapon that had the ability to end a life they might not be able to end one.

Self control and character come do come into play and some people do have the mental discipline to own fire arms and others do not [paraphrased from Brad Guy Briggs].

Many deaths are at the impetus of emotional overload and if there weren't weapons readily available it would give the person the opportunity to cool down from the overload that would affect everyone involved for the rest of their lives (or death).

This includes locking up any and all weapons; not like what the killer's mother was remiss in doing that ended up in the death of children in Sandy Hook.

If you want to own a weapon then you must be psychologically and emotionally capable of owning one, maintaining its function and securing its access so that others who don’t have those qualities could have access to them. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GETTING BURNED

Following and supporting an erroneous belief that you know is a lie is like grabbing a hot frying pan knowing that you will be burned. The results that come from employing erroneous beliefs convolute your life to the point where you don’t know what is real, truthful or sound.

You will defend your aberrant behaviors based on those erroneous beliefs to fulfill your yearnings to feel safe, secure and comfortable; whether those beliefs are sound or not.

Don’t hold onto that which distracts you and does not edify your being and the peace of yourself and others. Discharge it into the oblivion where it belongs.

Choose to believe in not believing and know the truth from the Divine within. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOOK WITHIN

The next time someone tells you that you have to ‘do’ something in order to be fulfilled and complete get away from them as soon as possible. As long as you look outside of yourself for what can only be found within you will remain unsure, lost and unfulfilled.

Go within and have communion with the Spirit of God every day and you will be in a state of being divinity and not trying to ‘do’ divinity. Take the peace from your inner communion, share it with all and your life will be replete with satisfaction, comfort and fulfillment.

Anything else is distraction from the One Source of reality. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LYING TO YOURSELF

If you believe that you are right when you know you aren’t you are lying to yourself. Truth begins when you are honest with yourself and you follow Divine guidance.

Otherwise you are treading water under the veil of your ego more concerned about what you can get from what you do than just sharing Divine love and knowing that you are always blessed.

What you do from a loving heart sets creativity into motion and lifts the veil to bless you with an ongoing awareness and feeling of Divine love everlasting.

Bask in the peace, understanding and joy of Divine love and you will experience health, wealth, prosperity and abundance each and every day of your life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WARNING

What do you do when you warn someone of impending disaster and they act like you don’t know what you are talking about? Do you insist on arguing with them in order for them to see the branch ahead of their step that they are about to trip over? Or do you simply warn them and go about your way?

Some are destined to trip in order to learn to listen. Allow others to discover the awareness of learning from experience. You did the right thing by warning them, so do the right thing by leaving them to learn what they need to learn. It might not take root now; however, it might take root in the future and they will remember how you warned them.

Committing acts of Divine love require you to let go and allow the seeds to take root and grow. Water them with support, but never insist upon their taking the actions they need to take until they decide to take them.

A successful farmer never digs up the seeds that were planted to monitor their progress because the farmer trusts in nature to do its job. Trust in the Divine to sprout the seed when it is appropriate and keep spreading your seeds of Divine love.

Do your job and God will express divinity in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

ACTING ON DIVINE GUIDANCE

Why do you continue to do that which doesn’t serve the edification, growth and expansion of your being? Why do you continue to defend your aberrances, infirmities and selfishness? Are you afraid of what you might become and that maintaining that dynamic state of fulfillment would be more than you bargained for in your life? Are you making excuses because you fear that your friends, families or co-workers would reject you if you succeeded? Or are you afraid that if you fail that they might reject you?

Whatever it is that you ‘feel’ is happening in your life is a result of what you think, believe, act upon and express in your life. Your feelings are always telling you whether you are on track or off track. Are you listening to what you feelings are telling you? Or are you listening to what others say you should do? Are you listening to what the Divine is guiding you to do or are you following the selfish commands of your ego?

Listening to guidance means NOTHING if you don’t act on it. Be what the Divine is guiding you to be and you will be completely fulfilled! How do I know this? Because the Divine has blessed my life with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance each and every day of my life for listening and acting on what I have been led to share and express.

By daily and diligently practicing prayer, meditation and service to others, you naturally unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order. You immerse yourself in a relationship with the Creator of the entire omniverse. By going within you come to a greater understanding you whom and what you truly are. You listen to the guidance of the still small voice of God and ACT on what you are being guided to do!

By sharing Divine love while helping others to fulfill their lives you become more and more aware of you need to know more than what you choose to believe! Knowing always trumps believing! It is from that which has created all there is! Not from some religion, church or self-serving preacher. The truth comes freely from the Divine into your heart when allow it to be!

Don’t believe me. Know what the Divine shares with you in your heart. Live in the blessings you have been given. Trust in the Divine more than you believe in yourself and you will be led to joy everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHRISTIAN VALUES

When the term 'Christian' is used to define the values of a person it generally means a follower of the pseudo-biblical values that were constructed and implemented by the leaders of 'Christianity" to keep the masses in line and have NOTHING to do with the message of Christ. In other words, rules of pomposity and slavery to a set of values that were constructed by men to control men and women who chose to believe in their utter bull.

Learning and living the true message of Christ is to love God and love your neighbor; which is basically a summation of the Ten Commandments. Are your actions in the world demonstrating that you love God? Are you listening to Divine guidance each and every day? Are obeying that guidance and bringing Divine love into the world? Do you love your neighbor enough to help them become the best that they can be? Are you supportive of them and their goals and are you there for them when they need you? Or do just agree with what Christ said and go about your way doing what is just necessary for you to survive?

Loving God and others are the deep-seated ‘Christian’ values that Christ taught; not being pompous and judgmental of others that don’t believe as you believe to the point that you try to control, dominate and manipulate their lives. That is blatantly operating from your ego and NOT the Spirit of God.

Ego only cares to protect itself. It cares not for others and it will dismiss their needs in favor of self-survival. Only when you allow the inner Spirit of God to guide your steps will you be able free yourself from the constraints of the ego. The ego is not a bad thing. It has a job to do. It is your job to keep it in its place. Allow the Divine to steer your way and stop following the selfish yearnings of your ego and what it thinks is right and wrong. Move toward that which guides everyone over that which looks only to itself for all of the answers.

Stop defending the ‘rights’ of people to hurt, kill and ride herd over others. Stop defending that which does NOT contribute to life in favor of what takes it away. It is your choice to live from the stench of your selfish ego or the divine fragrance of the Spirit of God. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INSPIRATION

I am so sick and tired of seeing that genius, physical prowess and any other thing that is worthwhile doing is referred back to Edison’s ‘1% inspiration and 99% perspiration’. Bullshit!!! Since when does 1% inspiration of anything make you do anything at all? Shouldn't it be 51% inspiration and 49% perspiration?

If you aren’t inspired to do something then why would you get off of your ever-widening ass to do it? Wouldn’t it take MORE inspiration than physical perspiration to get you started in the first place? After you have perspired and are tired from carrying out your inspiration wouldn’t you need more inspiration to get you going again?

Be inspired by the results you obtain but know that anything worth doing is worth doing well. If you yield half-assed results then don’t change your approach to full assed. Whatever it takes to be inspired, be inspired. Let that drive you to perspire.

Let that be the reason you get out of bed in the morning. Let that be the motivation to become the best you can be. Stop spending 99% of your precious time in perspiring when the time you spend in inspiring is just as crucial. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO EXCUSE

It always amazes me how wanna-be graphic artists spend so much time in perfecting their art and they dismiss their own fallibility by not looking up a word for the correct spelling.

There is NO excuse when you can point and click to find out how to spell something correctly on the Internet. It takes away from their message because they aren't being precise enough to relay the message correctly.

Bad grammar and poor spelling reveal an origin of either too much ego or not enough caring. When you make your expressions palatable to others it shows that you truly care about them AND the message you are trying to convey! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEING AT PEACE

What you believe is based on what you perceive, retrieve and conceive. What you feel is based on what you sense, think about and react to in your environment.

What you think about is based on what chemical interactions that are occurring in your brain; they are determined by what you eat, how and what you breathe and where your feelings have brought you.

What you know is based on what you have thought about, what beliefs you hold as true and what you feel about those thoughts and beliefs.

Wisdom comes from taking what you know and allowing Divine guidance to temper it with Divine love, altering the knowledge of ‘me’ with the consideration of ‘we’.

Being at peace with your environment means embracing Divine understanding and experiencing joy and Divine love.

It means being just what you were created to be; a child of the Most High sharing Divine love with all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THINKING CORRECTLY

How you feel determines your attitude; how you think determines what you believe. If you believe you cannot be who you know you are and your attitude accepts that, you will be frustrated, stifled and hindered. If you believe you can be who you know you are and your attitude rejects that, you will experience the same state of affairs. However, if you believe you cannot be who you know you are and your attitude rejects that, you will open the door to understanding and removing your erroneous beliefs.

If you believe you can be who you know you are and your attitude accepts that, then you are on the road to fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order. There will still be challenges to what you feel, think and believe. You will accept and reject things that you perceive are being detrimental or edifying your being. The lesson to be learned is simply this; don’t resist what you feel is blocking your fulfillment. Allow it to be what it is and don’t attach any emotional conclusions to it except that it is there to make you ‘think’ of what you need to do next to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order.

For in correct thinking come feelings of whether or not that perceived ‘correct’ thinking is working or not. If you feel good about it, it is working. If you don’t, it isn’t. Use your feelings to maintain and develop an attitude of gratefulness for the experiences and your thinking will reflect the possibilities available and align you with the probabilities of available patterns of fulfillment.

Your daily choices forge your ability to unfold your Divine purpose perfectly. It is in your correct choices you gain the insight of what works; and in your bad choices you gain the insight of what doesn’t work. Remembering the results that you yield affords you the ability to adjust your roadmap to fulfillment and continue to grow and expand.

Reject what you feel is not right for you and accept what is. Allow what you know is right for you and don’t resist what isn’t. Use your inherent power of divine co-creation to create what you were created to create and not what you were created to not create. As always, it is your choice given to you by the Divine in grace, free will and Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GAMBLERS

Who are the most clandestine gamblers in our country? It is the gamblers on Wall Street who bait investors with insurance futures based on their skewed and archaic actuarial tables that are constructed on the standard deviation of the mean. When peoples’ behaviors and lives unfolding are determined on an abstract and accepted set of formulas to measure confidence in statistical conclusions by an actuarial, the concepts of Divine order and Divine purpose are not at all considered. Only the raw data and the probability of the standard deviation of the mean ARE taken into consideration for a LIVING AND BREATHING INDIVIDUAL. This ‘might’ happen to you and this ‘might not’ happen to you based on what OTHERS do or don’t do.

Because of these accepted statistical probabilities we are all lumped into a bell curve ‘expectation’ and not ‘individuality’. This, my friends, is total bullshit. It exists only for the Wall Street ‘gamblers’ to make a profit on what ‘might’ or ‘might not’ happen to you. The Wall Street gamblers worship one thing; making plenty of money as profit. As long as the almighty dollar is their God they will do whatever they can to satisfy their greed and sacrifice your life in the process. They don’t care about you or your family. They only care about maintaining and growing their bottom line.

Don’t be fooled by their shallow and hollow ‘concern’ about health care. They only care about how they can make billions off of your infirmities from health care providers and how to lessen the payouts of insurance futures. It’s a numbers game and your name NEVER enters the formula. Be an individual and back universal health care for all. After all, the government depends on you for taxes that come from your hard work and labor and should be responsible for providing exemplary care to keep you alive to pay taxes. Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Don’t allow those who LIE with numbers and tables to determine the course of your life. Be an individual by trusting completely in the Divine and knowing that you will be blessed. That is the BEST insurance anyone can have! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHEN AND WHERE?

When and where will we all become whom and what we were created to be? We will meet sometime between now and then and somewhere between here and there; all in Divine order.

When we allow the Divine to guide our lives we will be at the right place, at the right time, in the right circumstance and with the right people to fulfill our Divine purpose in Divine order.

I call it Serendipitous Synchronicity; in other words, the allowance of your greater good to come by getting out of your own way. Simply allow! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SUSPICIOUS

Those who are suspicious of the motives of others are to be looked at in a suspicious manor themselves because their outlook proves that they are living in fear and NOT trusting in the Spirit of God completely.

They are dangerous to themselves and others because their egos will lash out at the slightest provocation. If you know someone who is overly suspicious and won’t allow the light of truth to enter give them love and go about your way.

It is not your duty to enlighten them; it is their duty to understand the truth without attaching negative emotions to their faulty perceptions. Be wary of their space and be thankful in yours. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AMERICA!

America! The land of the free and the home of the brave? What an illusion! When you are free to have the power over the life and death of another and brave enough to tell others how to live, you are truly living in an illusion. The illusion created by your ego that what you believe is more important than what you know from Divine love?

The illusion that you have an exclusive understanding of how to live your life and how others should live theirs? The illusion that what you believe is how it is and that if others are not aligned with your beliefs that they are not loving God? Yes, America the Beautiful! Where purple mountains majesty reflect the beauty of nature and where bigotry, bullying and self-righteousness reflect the soul of those lost in their own egos.

Pray for the souls who feel they are better than everyone else to come to an understanding of living and sharing Divine love. Meditate on all of us in the entire world living in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Serve each other with the blessings of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Fulfill our destinies of living in our Divine purposes in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALWAYS CONNECTED

The Divine is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent and omniparient. From the stillness,  silence and singularity of formless spirit springs forth the perceived dualistic reality which imbues every aspect of the divinity in form; being present everywhere in creation, knowing all there is to know, growing and expanding the natural with Divine love and giving birth to all of existence, now and evermore!

Being one with the spirit aligns your being with the natural processes of the unfolding of the omniverse. Being one with your ego goes against the grain and upsets the natural order. We are always connected to our source and the only way that we aren’t is when we ‘believe’ we aren’t.

That’s what the by-product of free will allows and we spend our lives learning the lesson of how all of our problems come from our conscious separation to our natural state of well-being. Stop separating yourself from that which loves you, nurtures you and supports your very life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

When you doubt what you have expected to happen then you weren’t really expecting it were you? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The early bird might get the worm but the second rat gets the cheese. ~Unknown

When we all go about our Father’s business we create the Kingdom of God on Earth. Be free and be brave by being committed to peace on earth and good will to all of life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. ~Marcus Aurelius

Everything we believe is what we have accepted as true without knowing the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Government’s main function is to level the playing field and provide needed services to support that level playing field; roads, bridges, security, education, individual and business opportunities for the growth, expansion and EQUALITY of all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

With the first sentence, you could be a Libertarian; but it's all downhill thereafter.  Government has only three roles: defending the rights of the individual, defending the environment, defending the country. ~J Ross Dock Hester

And that assumes that we are always fighting because of a 'defense' posture. Why not the government’s roles be that of supporting the rights of ALL, maintaining a healthy environment and integrating our country into the world as a leading force of good will? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CURSING

Cursing is a way to release the frustration that someone else has interfered with the flow of your passage to where you feel you need to be. However, blessing others with Divine love is an even better way to create heaven on earth. As Yeshua said, “Bless those who curse you, and pray over those who take you away by force” ~Luke 6:28 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)).

Why would you do this? Why would you bless those who curse you and why should you pray over those who take you away by force? Because when you meet acrimony with Divine love and you ask for the Divine to forgive others that harm you, you are creating peace, understanding, joy and the awareness of Divine love WITHIN you amid the chaos of the outer world.

Before you can share Divine love you MUST experience it within you! You must allow yourself to live in it NO MATTER WHAT occurs in the outer world! You must ‘be’ that which you desire to share or you are sharing other than what you seek to create. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WORDS CAN BE WEAPONS

If you allow the words of others to change who you are you are making a grave mistake. Words are like weapons of ‘class’ destruction that are designed to create reactive emotions to those who have ‘put their buttons out there’ to be pushed. First, realize that words can affect your performance and if you choose to believe what they are imparting it is YOUR choice. You are the one who has accepted them as real and it is you that will derive the consequences from your beliefs and actions; NOT anyone else!

If you exemplify high quality, integrity, status, or style you are said to have ‘class'. Why would you allow what anyone else says to change that? It doesn’t make sense for you to change what is working for you. The old saying applies here: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” On the flip side, if what you are believing and creating is not ‘adding to’ you life and the lives of others, then perhaps you should pay attention to what others are saying and incorporate it into your being.

Discernment is the faculty you need to use in order to determine what thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors are allowing you to experience a state of dynamic ‘class’. Judging whether or not certain words are ‘life-giving’ or ‘life-debilitating’ is the process by which you identify whether or not these words and the beliefs that have projected them are accurate or not.

If you don’t judge them as to their pertinence to you it will NOT be beneficial to anyone! Do something about maintaining your level of ‘class’. Don’t allow the beliefs and words of others to affect you so much that they stifle your individual growth and expansion into being the best you can be. Be diligent and strong and you WON’T make grave mistakes! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TOUGH LOVE

When you use your own set of morals to judge the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors you have the right to do so to determine whether or not you want to associate with them and have them influence your peace. What you don’t have the right to do is tell them who they ought to be, what they should do with their life, where they need to be in their life, how they need to get there, when they should arrive and why they should follow what you have to say.

If they ask you for guidance give it to them based on your experience but not predicated on whether or not they choose to listen to your guidance. Be helpful and not deceitful, gentle and not forceful, kind and not abusive and most of all, be truthful and not deceptive. If they respond with disdain or with telling you that you should not be too harsh, remind them that tough love means that you share the truth ALWAYS and never pull any punches.

The problem with this world as it stands is that too many people allow evil to flourish by thinking that they are being spiritual by ‘sending them love’ or just doing nothing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Did Yeshua stand by and do nothing with the money changers who violated the temple? Or did he stand up and wound some egos by tearing apart their enterprises? He spoke with authority because he KNEW that the truth is the only way in which to live. No namby pamby spiritual ‘just send them love’ horseshit. He stood up for what he KNEW was right and set an example.

I am not suggesting to anyone that you show up at a temple and tear apart some tables to prove that you know the truth; what I am saying is that sometimes you have to go beyond convention to make the truth be known. He also showed love in the face of Peter’s violence when he cut off the ear of the Roman soldier. He healed the soldier with Divine love. In the face of aberrance we must all act appropriately in the moment to whatever situation we are facing.

Be loving, kind and understanding but take no B.S. from anyone when they are defending their aberrances, infirmities and behaviors that affect your ongoing state of peace. Being spiritual means being loving with the strength of Divine truth as your guide. Never forget that! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOOM AND GLOOM

Those who paint a picture of doom and gloom over our new healthcare system have an agenda that is selfish at best. It is what they want us to believe in order for them to become the middlepersons that profit from the fear that they generate in others over the insurance industry.

They are vipers, liars and manipulators of the truth. They paint a false picture of a reality they WANT you to believe in based on their yearnings to maintain their greed. They WILL suffer the consequences of their actions; the problem is the collateral damage to the rest of us because of their greed!

Discern the lies in what they state as prediction or unfolding facts; it is their only way to control, dominate and manipulate the truth in order to fulfill their greedy agendas. Don’t be fooled again by their self-serving yearnings to live fat off the hard labors of the rest of us.

See them for who and what they are! Vipers waiting for you to fall in their pit to devour the very life out of you. Don’t fear them; don’t pity them. Pray for them to understand and FEEL Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SETTING SAIL

Setting sail toward your perceptions of the fulfillment of your being means that you’ve mapped out a course and adjust your sails to accommodate the changing winds. It doesn’t mean that you change your destination; it means that you adjust your course to accommodate the changes you encounter on the way to your destination.

Mid-course corrections are necessary because as you move toward your goal nature has moved naturally in its own direction. Goals are the ego's choices of what it perceives it needs to become fulfilled; while on the journey it learns what it truly needs due to the unfolding of natural order.

Stay focused on your goals but be flexible enough to know that as the winds of change alter your course, the Divine is there to guide you forward in Divine order to complete and utter fulfillment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MAGICAL?

As you open your heart more and more to the possibilities of living your dreams something natural happens that appears to be magical. Because the natural unfolding of the manifesting of your dreams occurs in separated perceptions, it appears to be magical because of your emotional reactions to it. In fact, the natural unfolding of your dreams is a continuous process that appears disjointed because of your incremental awareness of it.

When you become more aware of the possibilities, it is then that your emotions kick in to create the feelings that you can convert the possibilities into probabilities. Feel those emotions completely unfettered by internal doubts, external nay-sayers and perceived circumstances. How you ‘feel’ about things is your barometer of what is possible and what can become probable.

Getting in touch with your feelings means that your heart is opening more to the natural flow of Divine love in Divine order; which, in turn, ultimately results in the complete fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order. The possibilities of life are astronomical and the probabilities of life are determined by what you focus your attention on with your consistent awareness.

There is nothing magical; in reality it is all unfolding naturally and you perceive it as supernatural or magical because of your focus and feelings about it. Know that the Divine is always there guiding you by influencing Divine order to affect natural order to fulfill your innermost dreams. It is you that misreads the signs and cues that guide you from the possibilities into the probabilities.

Let go of your perceptions that decry the unfolding of your Divine desires and proceed in faith and complete Divine trust. Nothing will stop you then because you are in complete alignment with Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DO YOU CARE ABOUT WHO YOU ARE?

What you do with what you have reveals how much you truly care about who you are. When you start from where you are and know when to act with what you have, you reveal that you understand the fact that you need to grow and expand into being whom and what you were created to be. It reveals that you know that there is something within you and beyond you that loves you unconditionally.

You might not know exactly what that is or how to communicate with that something, but you feel it and know it deep inside. It defines the ‘why’ of your existence and you learn to trust its inner voice. You live your life and learn to develop a relationship with that voice. It is the Divine sharing Divine love with you and guiding you into becoming exactly whom and what you were created to be.

Listen everyday to that voice. Follow Divine guidance. Live your life replete with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance because they are your natural and divine states of existence. Don’t allow your fears or ANY outside influences to define your existence and interfere with your relationship with the Divine. That relationship is between you and God and NO ONE ELSE!!! Spend private time with the Divine each and every day and you will be living each and every moment of your life in the blessings of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
