ASSHOLEITUDE

My lovely wife came up with a new term one morning before the 2016 election over coffee and Morning Joe. The term is a combination of the words ‘asshole’ and ‘attitude’; ASSHOLEITUDE! It is a state of mind and heart that exists when an asshole gets confronted by the truth; instead of researching the truth, testing its veracity and validating its occurrences, they double down on their beliefs and cop a ‘tude about them. This occurs on both sides of the political spectrum. From hard-headed Trump supporters who boo a mother of a soldier to Bernie supporters who won’t bend to Hillary knowing full well that the most important thing is to NOT elect Trump. From hardcore Jill Stein supporters who believe that she is a viable alternative even though she is being financed by the Trump machine to the Libertarians who believe that Gary Johnson stands a snowball’s chance in hell.

I remember this quite well being a Ralph Nader supporter. My vote for him contributed to the closeness of the election where GWB became the first duly selected POTUS by the conservative leaning SCOTUS. There is strange thing about history; you can ignore it, deny it or learn from it. Woe be to those who don’t choose the latter; for they ARE doomed to repeat it. Warren Buffet called out Trump yesterday and justifiably so for the lies he espouses. Trump claims that 517,000 people have averaged to contribute $69 each for a total of $35.8 million. Paltry compared to the over $100 million that Mitt Romney raised. Trump has raised a total of $98 million; $50 million of which is self-financed. Bernie raised $228 million total with $135 million at $27 for the average person. Hillary Clinton has raised $375 million total with $51 million from small donations. Small donations were the bulk of Bernie’s campaign and were almost 3 times as much as DJT’s per person average while almost 3 times as much per average donation.

Both Trump and Hillary seem to get most of their money from PAC’s and large donors while Bernie’s fundraising efforts are indicative of what ‘the people’ want Jill Stein has raised a total of $860,000 while Gary Johnson has raised $1.36 million [Source]. So, are you suffering from ‘ASSHOLEITUDE’? Do you follow your beliefs more than the truth of reality that a non-vote for HRC, a vote for JS or GJ is a wasted vote or a vote for Trump will plummet this country into an abyss of backward ass thinking, war and financial collapse? Or are you going to ‘vote your conscience’ which really isn’t your conscience but you stubborn egotistical grasp onto your erroneous beliefs and lust for your own agenda manifestation? Don’t try to argue with me about the facts because the facts will slap you down and identify you as being selfish, stubborn and stupid.

You ARE entitled to your own opinions ABOUT the facts; but you are NOT entitled to your own skewed version of the facts to support your clandestine agenda manifestation (paraphrase of Daniel Patrick Moynihan). So, go ahead and make their day! The conservatives, i.e. Listen to the lies about HRC; the lies from JS and GJ; the over the top bullshit of DJT who sees everything as a ‘disaster’. Go ahead and buy into the negativity that he is selling. A con-artist can only sell his wares to people who emotionally react, don’t investigate and believe the charisma of the con-artist. Grow the fuck up and LEARN how to discern the truth by getting off of your ever-widening asses and going to the library to LEARN the truth. Yes, the books that are there are different people’s versions and opinions about the truth; however, it is there that you gain knowledge to make an informed opinion instead of being a loyal minion to the lies of those who seek power over you for their own personal gain and selfish edification.

Be a drone; be a clone; and then after you push that button for the spreading of evil start to moan. It is then that you will know the power of your individual vote. It is then that you will learn that lesson. After all, you go into that booth alone to make a decision for all of us. Make the right one that contributes to the growth and expansion of all instead of the fearful one that protects your damaged and selfish ego. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LET PEOPLE KNOW

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.

GETTING CAUGHT UP

Too many people get caught up in what they observe. As the rotation of the Earth reveals first the scattered light of the Sun dancing in the sky to the moment the disk of the Sun appears on the horizon, we are witnessing what appears to be morning for us. On the other side of the Earth it appears to be evening at the same time. The fact of the matter is that the Sun is always shining. It is our perspective of it that determines whether or not we perceive day or night. It is the same with our spirituality. It is always there deep within us but it is the perspective of our egos that determines whether or not we embrace its guidance. It is when we stop worrying about whether or not the Sun will appear to ‘rise’ that we free ourselves from the constraints of our egos.

Our egos need to resolve what we experience or we become more unsure and perplexed about what we believe is happening to us. The result is to worry more than know. We can know down deep inside that the Sun will rise and still worry about whether or not it will. Worrying never changes the facts; it changes our beliefs about the facts. It is a negative prayer based on lack of trust and a welcoming of doubt and fear. How do we stop worrying about what is possible that can be detrimental to our lives? Simply by being prepared to enjoy it! By choosing to enjoy what we experience we change the possibilities of expecting negative probabilities into the possibilities of expecting positive outcomes. It is through our levels of expectation of that which we observe that determines the results we experience.

Change your attitude from sorrow to joy and expect to keep that attitude despite how things appear. Recognize that you are a co-creator in this vast omniverse of spirit and energies and that your outlook is what determines your inlook; and vice versa. Have the faith to trust in that which you cannot see as it unfolds that which you can see. It is in that trust that our consciousness affects the unfolding of natural order by Divine order through Divine will. Be perfect in enjoying life by preparing yourself to be, do and have what you have been blessed with in the form of your talents, skills and abilities. Give those gifts in Divine service to all and contribute to the growth and expansion of the omniverse each and every day! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IDENTIFYING WITH
THE FIGUREHEAD

Some religious believers so identify with the figurehead of their adopted religion that they forget the message of that figurehead. They look to their beliefs about what that leader had said without investigating the context in which it was said. They read mistranslations from a holy book that becomes their ‘law’. The problem with Literary Authoritarianism is that it statically represents dynamic principles dependent on the belief systems of the authors. In other words, it is subjective to the beliefs of the writers; whether accurate of erroneous. Furthermore, most interpretations of the writings are taken literally without any regard to the cultural and geographic idioms present in the time of those writings.

This is why our deistic Founding Fathers kept religion out of government and government out of religion because they saw the result of what it manifests. The overriding result is that those who do not follow the spirit of the law focus more on the letter of it. In other words, their religion becomes an ego support mechanism MORE than a spiritual foundation. In their passion to share what has given their lives meaning, they overstep their bounds in imposing their religious beliefs on others. Their individual zeal to convert others becomes more important than anything; not only because they want to show others the way to ‘salvation’, ‘enlightenment’ or ‘nirvana’; but to make another hash mark on the chalkboard.

The ego is our self-survival mechanism that has a job to do; to protect us at all costs. If your beliefs need constant reassuring and validation from others, then they are based on your ‘opinion’ of the beliefs that you have learned and adopted. Beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts that you have accepted as true without testing their veracity and validating their occurrences. They exist in the emotional realm of faith in something beyond your own personal vision. Only when you transcend the emotional reactive realm of beliefs by focusing your mind on experiencing what is beyond your personal experience, will you be able to proact from what you know from the spirit; which comes from intuitive guidance.

The resultant ‘salvation’, ‘enlightenment’ or ‘nirvana’ only come from proacting what you know by living in Divine service to others. If you teach others without sharing Divine love it is from your ego wanting a pat on the back for helping. It is looking for ‘brownie points’ for your presumptive ‘righteous’ behavior instead of ‘trusting’ in the Divine Infinite Spirit of God to guide you, bless you and fulfill you. Any spiritual leader that points to any device outside of you is preaching from their ego. True spiritual teachers point the way to others so that they will discover the truth within on their own. Religion has always been someone else’s take on what it is to be spiritual. Spirituality is truly your own take on your individual relationship with the Divine within.

It is when you allow others’ beliefs, Literary Authoritarianism and your selfish ego to take command; you are NOT living from the spirit. The spirit recognizes all and teaches us to share equally the Divine love that is present in our inner hearts. Don’t believe those who tell you that they have ‘the way’ to ‘salvation’, ‘enlightenment’ or ‘nirvana’; that is their egos speaking and NOT the Spirit of God. They are imposing their limited belief systems on you in order to gain a foothold on your thinking, feelings and beliefs. That is blatant control, domination and manipulation that come from the ego; NOT the Spirit of God. Some religious leaders will try to convince you that your inner voice is coming from demons, the devil or selfishness.

Don’t believe them! If the inner voice teaches you to help others, give of your talents, skills or abilities to them and share Divine love with them, then it is from the spirit within. If it teaches you to take advantage of them, control them, dominate their lives and manipulate their beliefs, then it is NOT from the spirit but from the selfish ego. Be clear about this. Refuse to adopt any and all beliefs that take away from the growth and expansion of all in favor of only self-edification. We are here to share Divine love with one another and NOT hoard it for ourselves! A just judgment is one where you observe the fruits that someone bears and decide to align yourself with those fruits or move away from them. A powerful discernment is one that demonstrates fruitful results by the actions and behaviors of sharing.

Accurate beliefs lead to a deeper understanding of the Divine in which you discard those beliefs in favor of Divine knowing! Erroneous beliefs lead to the ego’s yearnings to control, dominate and manipulate what others’ believe in order to justify, edify or vilify the ego (self). We are all a combination of many mitigating and aggravating factors that we believe in and choose to react to them from our experience of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of ourselves and others. Choose Divine love MORE than selfish gratification. Choose selflessness MORE than selfishness. Choose what contributes to the growth and expansion of ALL of life MORE than just your little corner of your world. We will be better off when you do! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INTERPRETATIONS

As the spirit expresses through each one of us according to the individual chemistry of our bodies, so too we interpret the proactions from our spirit in relation to the reactions of the beliefs that our ego holds as true.

We come from the same spirit; but express it differently because of our individual personalities expressing it through our physical bodies.

In this we express Divine love from the spirit or egotistical yearning for our own good. It is in the action of choice that we experience the diversity of our being from the unity of spirit.  Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEEING TRUTH AS LIES

Those who see the truth as lies spend too much time generalizing what is in essence and practice, specific.

Spinning the truth to support your agenda manifestation is being selfish more than selfless.

You will reap what you sow when you take the highest truth and make it low! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

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

Those who cheat live in fear and will reap what fear brings; loss, pain and suffering. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The love of God is the root of all that is good, beautiful and fulfilling! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A life without expectation is a life without everything! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TO DONALD J. TRUMP

To Donald J. Trump: You are responsible for what you say, how you say it and your intent in saying it. You might claim that you are not responsible for what other people believe that you have said.

However, when you say suggestive things in a demonstrative manner with the intent of making others believe what isn’t the truth over what is, then you are a controlling liar, dominator and manipulator of the truth to favor your own ends.

You are guided and directed by your ego MORE than the Spirit of God. You are reprehensible, disgusting and despicable. Woe be to those who cannot see the evil in your lies and the selfishness in your heart. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REPEATING A LIE

Just because you repeat a lie over and over again to those who will not, or cannot, see the truth, doesn’t mean that it is the truth. A lie that is designed to inflame the emotions of unstable people is no longer rhetoric. It is tantamount to yelling fire in a movie theater when the fire is across town.

Any person who does this is unstable, childish and self-centered. If you want a leader who does this then it reveals just how juvenile you are.

Grow the fuck up and be a responsible and accountable adult that recognizes the rights and beliefs of others and does not resort to inflammatory speech to trigger unstable responses in fulfilling your sick and twisted agenda.

Yes, I mean YOU Donald Trump! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DIVINE LOVE FLOWS

From my inner well-being Divine love flows like water cascading down into a pool of limpid bliss.

I am whole, lucid and blessed as a result and I am grateful for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

As I live from the joy of my inner spirit I am a blessing to others as they are blessings to me. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROJECTIONS

Everything I think, feel, believe, say and do is projected into my world and reflected back to me in ways I might not understand but come to know.

It is in the feedback of the reflections that I verify and validate my forward progress amid the myriad of distractions that affront my senses.

It is maintaining my inner peace as I traverse the din and chaos that yields my satisfaction.

Grace is Divine love freely given and I walk in that grace by trusting in the Divine infinite Spirit of God within me right now! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEING OF SERVICE

One thing you must know. I am honored to be of service to all of you. I know that our sharing has been mutually beneficial and I am grateful for that.

I am thankful that we are friends and that we have had the opportunity to share what we have learned with each other.

Your friendships have made my life better and I know that the Divine has blessed me as a result. Thank you all and may God always bless all of you and your families! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

SPIRITUALLY PERFECT

When you give up on being the spiritual perfect being you are, the omniverse responds with challenges to for you to be perfect in handling your erroneous belief that you aren't perfect.

Your choice in moving away from the truth of your existence has repercussions that you might not understand fully, but will come to learn eventually.

Only when you accept your Divine perfection will you be whole and able to express the perfection fully. Be perfect as the Divine within you is perfect!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

JUST JUDGMENT

When just judgment is rendered, we learn to see that the crest and trough of a wave exist together in polar opposites.

Without the expression of the perceived dualistic reality we cannot polarize, distinguish or differentiate one perceptive state from another. How we react to, proact from or stay unmoved reveals what we feel in our inner being. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EMPATHY

Having empathy for people does NOT include the justification of embracing other’s infirmities and supporting their erroneous beliefs about those infirmities. True empathy understands what others are going through and is never a crutch for their beliefs about what they are going through. Listening without judgment is never being empathetic.

Just judgment is required in order to evaluate conditions that have rendered results and without it one cannot extrapolate the causes of the results. Being too serious limits one's ability to DISCERN facts accurately without reading into them as being something other than what their intention actually was and how it is perceived by others.

When just judgment is rendered, we learn to see that the crest and trough of a wave exist together in polar opposites. Without the expression of the perceived dualistic reality we cannot polarize, distinguish or differentiate one perceptive state from another.

How we react to, proact from or stay unmoved reveals what we feel in our inner being. When your diagnosis of the perceived dualistic reality seems to be based more on judgment than evidence is the time when you should become centered in the now and learn that your take on reality is not the be all and end all of the reality you are experiencing.

Being humble means that you are more grounded in your perceptions than being lofty and overly judgmental. It means not being pretentious or servile but being deferential and respectful to others as a means to being fair and just. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HUMAN ASSETS AND
NOT HUMAN RESOURCES!

During the course of our lives of working for others or ourselves we have come to know that it’s the people who make a business operate and offer products and/or services to the public and/or private sectors of the population. Without people, business would not be able to operate, survive and thrive. In corporate offices dealing with employees used to be under the moniker of the Personnel Department. As businesses grew and progressed corporate entities started identifying personnel as resources. Resources?

Why would human beings be referred to as resources? Resources are “a source of supply, support, or aid, especially one that can be readily drawn upon when needed; raw materials that are a means of producing wealth; property or means of exchange that can be converted into capital; intangible means of someone’s personal capabilities” [dictionary.com]. In other words, resources are what we draw from in order to accomplish producing products or services that can be packaged and sold as a means to an end or a tangible commodity. In that sense, the term Human Resources looks at people as a means to an end and NOT as living, breathing and being assets to the growth and expansion of businesses’ charge of selling products and services.

The term should be Human Assets more than Human Resources. HR is defined as “the personnel employed by a given company, institution, or the like” [dictionary.com]. In regard to the ‘human’ element of these terms, Human Assets would be “the [talents, skills and abilities of human beings] that are convertible into cash; the total ‘resources’ of persons [that contribute to the survival and growth of a] business; [to generate] cash, notes and accounts receivable as well as securities, inventories, goodwill, fixtures, machinery, or real estate (as opposed to liabilities)” [dictionary.com].

Human BeingS are more ‘assets’ to the growth and expansion of businesses than they are resources. Resources are more impersonal raw materials that contribute to the manufacturing and distribution of products and services while ‘assets’ are the ‘holdings’ of the converted resources into a profitable outcome. They are more ‘personal’ to the business than are the ‘resources’ of the business. This attitude of treating people as resources has led to the impersonal ‘employee reviews or evaluations’ that set a baseline of behaviors that are subjective to the whims of middle management; which, in most cases, is dependent upon unrealistic standards that compartmentalize human assets into impersonal resources. The dehumanization of people into ‘cogs in the wheel’ contributes to the vapidity and soullessness of all employees including management.

In other words, by removing personal element business has gained a foothold on the spirit and initiative of the employees and management to conform to their mostly unrealistic and impersonal expectations of behaviors AND results! This is primarily the reason for some people to leave the corporate world and start their own businesses to retrieve and amplify the personal element of doing business. This is why Customer Service Department in many companies have no respect or caring for the needs of the customers; who are the very lifeblood of any successful business. Companies like Comcast are now running commercials about how they should fit into your life more than the other way around as if they just discovered this. I’m sorry, but this has been the reason that people have chosen to do business with one company over another for many years.

This is NOT something new and innovative; it is a realization that has been driven by competition to ‘become’ a way of doing business in order to attain new customers and retain already established customers. In others words, an attempt at growing the bottom line of their companies by creating an ‘image’ of respecting the sensitivities of their customers more than actually doing something like adjusting their rates to be sensitive to their customers’ bottom lines. This action of ‘pulling the wool’ over their customers’ eyes is NOT meeting their needs effectively even though it ‘appears’ that they are. Don’t buy into this snow job of huge and successful corporations.

As long as they treat Human Beings as ‘resources’ instead of ‘assets’, they are manipulating them and their customers to their own ends. We have all been blessed with individual talents, skills and abilities to contribute to the growth and expansion of everyone and we should never allow anyone to take advantage of our ‘assets’ to their own ends ONLY! Only when they utilize what we have to offer to contribute to ALL of us more than just their bottom lines will they be truly serving their customers with respectful services. Recognize their self-serving spin and call them out for what they are actually doing; trying to fit your square peg into a round hole that will cause you pain, discomfort and living in mediocrity. Be aware, be forthright; and be diligent to sharing what you have to offer and it being respected as an asset MORE than a resource. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NATURE FINDS A WAY

Nature has a way of unfolding natural order to reflect the inner beauty of the Divine. Just like nature, we have a way of unfolding Divine order in our lives to reflect our divine inner beauty. How do we do this?

By simply allowing Divine love to flow through us into the natural world to co-create beauty and fulfillment for all. What we resist will always persist and what we allow will always be in the now.

Allow Divine love to bless you always with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting. Be like nature and allow the Divine to bless you always! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I KNOW AND DON'T CARE

I don't know and I don't care. I say what I know and I don't care who reads it and for what purpose.

My job is to relay what I have come to know and not censor it for the convenience of others and their manifest agendas.

It's hard to twist and spin observations when you have nothing to hide and everything to gain. Peace! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NAME CALLING

People who get caught up in other's name calling are not dealing with the content of what the person in reference to is saying, but in the fact someone has called them a name they don’t like. The common response to name calling is “Refutation by denigration is the sign of a weak argument and a weak mind.” This is NOT always true!!!

When you have the facts and someone keeps denying those facts by insisting that their erroneous beliefs are the truth without testing their veracity and validating their occurrences then they ARE a MORON! Calling them one is NOT having a weak mind or a weak argument! It is telling them the truth by describing their behavior as being selfish and based on erroneous beliefs and NOT the facts!

Being politically and pseudo-logically correct does NOT reveal the truth most of the time!!! Being honest, forthright and willing to say it how it is despite the judgment of others who think they know what is best for everyone is being truthful. Don’t allow protocol or social correctness to override the truth. Be forthright and honest despite the lies of others! ~ Dean A. Banks, D.D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SILENCE IS DANGEROUS?

Some have repeatedly said that silence is dangerous! Why would anyone ever feel that silence is dangerous?

Could it be that they don’t understand exactly what silence is or is it because it is unknown to them and they fear what it represents?

Silence is NEVER dangerous! Only to a mind and heart that is fearful is it dangerous.

Let go of fear and embrace the unknown; it is your path to peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

WHAT IS CLICK BAIT?

Liberals and Conservatives: Do you jump at the opportunity to validate your beliefs when presented in the form of memes on Facebook? Is your position on issues so uninformed that you revel in the fact that someone else has apparently solidified your position and you feel that you MUST support it? Do you realize that spreading conjecture, suppositions and lies contributes to the disharmony in your own life? We all have shared links that we ‘believe’ support our positions and politics because we inherently feel that our societal agenda manifestation supports the growth and expansion of our world.

Whether you are a liberal, a conservative, a progressive or an anarchist, we have all participated at taking a bite at ‘click bait’! However, digging deeper requires investigation and research in order to verify an issue’s veracity and validate its occurrences. Without this due diligence how can we ever know that what we believe is actually the truth? Do we rely on others’ testimony or do we ferret out the facts in order to base our beliefs on what is real more than what we believe is real? In information science there is a term known as GIGO; garbage in, garbage out. If you input B.S. then you will output it as well. Are you a truthful person who simply jumps on the bandwagon of supposed truths because they are convenient and support your political position? Or are you a truthful person who digs deeper to ferret out the facts and represent the truth AS IT IS? Ultimately, responding to ‘click bait’ means that you are ‘lie bait’.

You are satisfied with accepting lies as the truth because it is the easy way out. It is a way for you to espouse your beliefs without performing the due diligence of investigation and research that is necessary to verify the facts and validate their occurrences. When you parrot what someone else emotionally puts forward without doing what is necessary to verify and validate it reveals that you are a person who is lazy and lives in mediocrity. It clearly demonstrates that your manifest agenda is more important than the truth AS IT IS! So, go ahead and make their day by parroting what they put forward without doing what is necessary to clearly see the truth. It is then that you become their minion and marketer. You blindly do what they want and you can’t even see just how much they are controlling, dominating and manipulating you to do their bidding. Who are they? Anyone and everyone who tries to convince you that what they believe and say are the truth and nothing but the truth.

If what they say is the truth, then they wouldn’t have to convince anyone of it; would they? So, the next time you are tempted to share some ‘click bait’ remember that your spreading it contributes to its proliferation in your life and the consequences it renders. Always choose to investigate the facts and research the origins of those facts. Who did they come from? What was their origin? Where did they occur? How did they unfold? When did they occur? Why did they unfold as they did? Was it to create an image of something or an actual occurrence of it? Practicing the due diligence of honest investigation and research will yield just what has occurred and who wanted it to occur the way it has occurred. Follow the ‘money’ and you will always see just whose wanting you to believe what they want you to believe. Peace and may due diligence prove to you the whole truth and nothing but the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BLIND HATERS

When it comes to blind haters who have already made up their minds without knowing all of the facts, it's a shame that we have to confuse them with the facts in order to jar their bubble enough that they can learn how to investigate and research everything that anyone says!

Truth comes from separating the chaff from the wheat in order to leave behind what is not needed and to eat what is left; that which is truly nutritious! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

COME AND GO

People will come and go in your life based on your mental acceptance of their overall effect on your growth and expansion into fulfillment.

When they stay for the warmth of your friendship it shows how powerful your heart is in accepting an emotional bond as well as a mental one!

Those who leave your life got what they needed from you and moved on. Those who stay understand just whom and what you truly are and appreciate you as a whole person centered in Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DEFINITION
OF TRUTH

The definition of truth is that which is based on fact, its veracity can be verified and its occurrences can be validated.

It is an agreement with a standard, original or absolute result of committed behaviors. Shared truth is based on a collective agreement from those who sense, believe and perceive the 'seen' and/or the 'unseen'.

Truth becomes subjective when someone agrees with its experience repeatedly; as in beliefs. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CORPORATE NEWS

Those who live by Faux ‘News’ will die by Faux ‘News’! Why? Because in their hunger for the spin to support their preconceived notions they ignore the truth in favor of their manifest agenda.

They blame MSNBC, CNN and other major network news organizations for spinning reality when in fact their own network of choice has openly admitted that it manufactures news to suit its agenda manifestation.

That is why Faux ‘News’ is so highly watched by so many who are too foolish to know the truth because they prefer it to be more palatable with their current and erroneous beliefs.

When you spend your life fooling yourself to support your erroneous belief system you are not only a piece of sloppy work, but a liar and manipulator as well.

Shrug off the cloak of partial information and revel in the bliss of the truth. It will free all of us from dealing with your childishness and selfishness. Grow the fuck up and be mature! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESEARCH

As for the truth, I spend many hours researching and investigating the opinions of both sides. Then I go to the factual event and study how it unfolded. After that, I investigate who was involved and who owns and finances political websites with heavily skewed opinions.

I then look at who has a vested interest in a prescribed outcome and follow the money that is supporting websites with what they 'want' you to believe instead of what is actually true. Then, and only then, have I done my due diligence to understand the factual occurrence.

When you deal with egos you have to find their secret agenda manifestation and decide whether or not you want to interact with them. We all have fallen prey to 'click bait' and we must all learn to not believe everything that we see on FB or experience in the 'real world' without testing it out.

We all have a duty and responsibility to the truth and that's why we exchange and argue with each other. It challenges all of us to do the research and speak with the authority of knowingness and NOT just belief. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I CARE NOT

I care not if anyone believes what I have to say. I don’t care if you argue, say nothing or agree with me. I don’t care if you insult me, berate me or challenge my educational credentials. I know what I have done in my life and the approval of others is not needed for me to feel appreciated, recognized or fulfilled.

I know that my relationship with the Divine within is my source and NOT anyone or anything else! The purpose of my writings has always been to challenge you to stop believing and start knowing. It is based on a philosophy that the Divine is within each and every one of us and we each, in our own time, can access our inner divinity to know more than believe and to love more than divide.

We all seem to base our beliefs on what is ‘seen’ more than basing our knowing on what is ‘unseen’. No one can guide you or direct you to the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order except the Divine within. Nothing I, or anyone, can say or do to reveal what you need to know from the Divine within.

An honest teacher, philosopher or writer can only point the way inward and it is up to you to make that journey of your own accord. May all of you and your families be blessed with Divine love now and evermore! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INTENTIONS

If you give to someone with the intent of them returning what you have given them you are not giving; you are keeping score. You are investing what you have given them in the expectation of a personal reward for you sometime in the future.

However, if you give to them with the intent of making their lives AND your life better, you need to expect the best to happen for all concerned. Expectation for selfish purposes is NOT co-creating beauty for all; it is controlling, dominating and manipulating ‘giving’ to your own advantage.

Expectation for mutual purposes co-creates beauty by permitting freedom, surrender and allowance to unfold perfectly in Divine order. Always expect the best to unfold for everyone and you will light up your life Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HIDING IN THE SAND

Are you hiding in the sands of life because things aren’t happening the way you think they should? Have you buried yourself in menial activities and distractions in order to avoid doing what is necessary to live fulfilled?

Have you become so satisfied in your comfort zone that you won’t even try? Stretch your hand upward and feel the cool air. Realize that being buried is being too comfortable.

Get up off of your seat and go into your community to help others. Give of your blessings as they have been freely given to you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ASTROLOGY

Astrology is an art that uses symbology to represent certain ‘possible’ behaviors of an individual. The planets represent the types of energy expressions; the signs represent how these expressions are channeled; and the houses represent where these energies are expressed (what areas of your life). And analysis of these ‘tendencies’ reveals the person’s images, patterns and internal symbology that forms individual archetypes.

Archetypal tendencies do not predetermine inspired actions and definitive results. They are simply symbols of possibilities and not determinants of probabilities. It's in the passion of the individual that fuels the possibilities into becoming probabilities.

It's always good to explore the possibilities in order to understand the true intent of the individual. Probabilities result from the true intent and the directed passions in manifesting favorable results. This is why Uranus is in your Moon! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIFE IS A PROCESS

Life is a process of keeping what you desire and letting go of what you don't desire. Get rid of those who disrupt your peace.

You are in charge of your peace and it is up to you to maintain it! Love you more than you love reacting to what defies your inner peace!

Be the perfect being you already are by dismissing that which appears to be against you. You are worth it!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NESARA?

So, what is NESARA? The “National Economic Security and Recovery Act (NESARA) was a set of proposed economic reforms suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Barnard. Barnard claimed that the proposals, which included replacing the income tax with a national sales tax (see also Fair Tax), abolishing compound interest on secured loans, and returning to a bimetallic currency, would result in 0% inflation and a more stable economy. The proposals were never introduced before Congress. NESARA has since become better known as the subject of a cult-like conspiracy theory promoted by Shaini Candace Goodwin, doing business as "Dove of Oneness", who claimed that the act was actually passed with additional provisions as the National Economic Security and Reformation Act, and then suppressed by the George W. Bush administration and the Supreme Court. Goodwin's conspiracy emails have been translated into several languages and have a large following online (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NESARA).

I've known about this for awhile. A dear friend of mine has invested many of his hard earned bucks into foreign currency in the hopes of Paul Ryan taking over the U.S. government after Obama and Biden step down. He has sent me link after link to conspiracy theory websites that tout the enforcement of NESARA and that only those who possess foreign currency will survive in the NEW WORLD ORDER. Just like the survivalists Glenn Beck with selling his gold and Alex Jones with selling his survival kits, the only ones who make out are the ones selling the currencies, gold or kits on Ebay. NESARA is a socio-political skew on the one world order. It is fear based and has driven millions of hard working people into spending millions on foreign currency in the hopes of making a killing when NESARA 'kicks in'.

It won't! It is a distraction! While you weren’t looking the true evils of this world (billionaires with egomaniacal agendas of control, domination and manipulation of the masses) are organizing everything in their favor with the resources of land, water, minerals, petroleum and even air! Do you know that local counties are now taxing air space for the structure of your home in ADDITION to the land it is standing on? This is double taxation and illegal; yet they get away with it because no one stands up against their breaking of the law. If there is a way for government and business to sap more dollars out of you for simply living, they will find a way unless YOU stop them! Greed is the motivator and NOT community maintenance, growth and expansion.

While you were distracted by your favorite TV shows, playing games and going to churches to receive the watered down ‘word’, your government and businesses who take advantage of the government are convoluting your lives to benefit THEM!!! Stop allowing distractions to rule your existence! Start allowing your Divine purpose to guide you into helping your community into becoming peaceful, understanding, joyous and love centered. Get off of your ever-widening ass and go out to fulfill your dreams AND the dreams of others. Be the change you wish to see in the world and your world will reflect that change. May God bless you and your families always! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE BASKET OF DEPLORABLES

So, what’s the stink about HRC declaring Trump’s ‘basket full of deplorables’? She was spot on in describing what deplorable behavior is demonstrated by, in her terms ‘half of his constituency’. The word deplorable comes from the Latin ‘deplorabilis’, meaning lamentable; worthy of censure or reproach; very bad. She described their behavior quite well, actually. Charles Blow of the New York Times said, “Here is Clinton’s full quote: “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.” Then, she continued: “But the other basket — and I know this because I see friends from all over America here — I see friends from Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and Texas — as well as, you know, New York and California — but that other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they’re just desperate for change. It doesn’t really even matter where it comes from.

They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different. They won’t wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they’re in a dead end. Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.” That second basket got too little attention. Context doesn’t provide the sizzle on which shock media subsists. Noted. What Clinton said was impolitic, but it was not incorrect. There are things a politician cannot say. Luckily, I’m not a politician.” Again, things taken out of context to reinforce an erroneous opinion of someone NOT based on what they actual said but on what they ‘believed’ she said; more like what they wanted to hear in order to dismiss her completely.

It’s not that she is a woman; it’s not that she has served in the federal government; it’s not that she has helped millions of disadvantaged people have some hope in their lives; it’s not that she is a Clinton. It’s because of what she represents to the backward ass country fucks who brandish a Confederate Flag as their identification alongside the USA Flag. Yeshua said that you cannot serve two masters. He made it quite clear. You cannot serve God and mammon. Donald Trump sings a song that they like while he’s screwing each and every one of us. They are just too stupid to see the truth of what he represents. If you are a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic then you ARE a bigot!

You are deplorable and you have no business employing your own backward ass country horseshit on the rest of us by taking positions of responsibility in our government. Grow up and see and hear what is really going on and NOT what you believe is going on to placate your selfish ego. How dare you impose what you believe on anyone else why you sell your soul to the devil. Each and EVERY preacher that supports this despicable individual will literally have HELL to pay. When the blind lead the blind they walk right over the edge of the cliff and don’t realize what they have done until it is too late. May God bless all of us! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CLAIMING TO KNOW

Claiming to follow what a wise person has stated by diminishing your fellow human beings is revelation enough that you have no understanding of Divine love or what it represents.

Evil fools simpletons by aggravating their emotions in order to carry out their twisted agendas. Only those who discern the spin of the evil ones can see the difference between what is real and what is 'believed' to be real.

Don't be fooled by those who promise you the world in general and give you no specifics as to how they will fulfill their promises. They are blind siding you with what they want you to believe more than what is the actual truth.

See them for what they ARE and NOT what they want you to believe. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

“America is the best country in the nation.” This is a prime example of the dumbing down of the USA. If you don't learn how to think MORE than emotionally react, you will spout platitudes like this and the famous one of Ronald Raygun: "What a great land, this country of ours!" Gross generalizations to instill emotional reaction and minimize cogent thinking! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

To all of those who constantly say that we are not perfect as we are and that perfection is not needed, I say this: Yes, it is not needed because we are already perfect spiritual beings who need to see ourselves as we are and not how we think and feel we are! As long as we see ourselves less than what we actually are we will continue to struggle in becoming instead of basking in being! Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is the spaces in between the rhythm of the music that makes the melody stand out to touch the soul! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DOOR TO WISDOM

If the door to wisdom is in knowing yourself, then the path to knowing yourself is to turn the doorknob in the right direction to open the door. You always have a choice to turn the doorknob to the left or the right and your action to do so is predicated by knowing the correct choice and following through with that choice with positive directed action. If you turn it to the left you are unlocking the truth and opening the door; if you turn it to the right you locking up the truth and keeping the door to wisdom closed.

Being liberally progressive means unlocking the door to the truth and wisdom of the Divine and being too conservative mean locking the door of truth and wisdom to selfishly keep it for yourself only without regard to the edification of others AND yourself! Always move to the left before moving to the right. Being too conservative stifles progress and being too liberal rushes progress without focused awareness. Moving left allows new possibilities and paradigms and moving right restricts what could be in favor of what has worked in the past and no longer works in the present.

Stay focused and balanced on the fence of reality and look before you leap. The odds are that even if you have planned and calculated where you will land that sometimes you will end up in a cow patty. Balance is the key. Some Christians say that Christ sits on the right hand of God and that we should always lean to the right. They seem to forget that what is on the right hand of God appears to be on the left to us. We must live our lives from a Divine perspective filtered through our perceptions. Being balanced means that we take the best from both sides and never lean too much to the left or right.

After all, we will fall off of the fence if we lose our balance. Stay balanced and focused on the truth more than listening to those who claim to know based on some ‘holy book’ that was passed down by humans as the word of God. Foolishness believes and wisdom knows. Be wise, my friends! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CALLING YOU OUT

In regard to being truthful about those who lie, spin and take advantage of the facts to spin a ‘possible’ truth in their favor, I will call you out for your blatant and selfish agenda manifestation.

If the shoe fits, wear it. If it doesn't, give it so someone who it does fit and who can truly use it instead of using your gifts to put down what you don’t understand! Peace! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BLESSINGS!

May the Divine always bless all of you and your families! Thank you for the opportunity to serve all of you with the blessings I have received. Always know before you think, think AND feel before you believe, believe before you speak, speak before you act and act before you behave. Be exactly what you were created to be now and evermore. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LIMITS OF GENIUS

What are the limits to genius? Is it the inability to see beyond the ‘seen’ into the ‘unseen’ or is it the inability to remain open to possibilities you haven’t considered? Perhaps both? Genius is “an exceptional natural capacity of intellect, especially as shown in creative and original work in science, art, music or other fields of endeavor” [dictionary.com].

It is a keen intellect that sees beyond what others see into the workings behind and beyond the perceptible. Stupidity is “characterized by or proceeding from mental dullness; foolishness; senselessness” [dictionary.com]. In this sense, stupidity has no limits because it does NOT see things how they are and how other things unfold as a result of subsequent environmental interactions.

Genius can only see what unfolds and can anticipate what unfolds because of an understanding of how things work. Stupidity can understand how things work but ignores their results because it ‘wants’ things to turn out how it believes it should turn out more than how it actually turns out. It will even deny how things turn out if it conflicts with their appraisal of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of objects and others.

Genius looks at things how they are and stupidity looks at things how they want them to be. In other words, genius uses intellect to evaluate, discern and proact from reality where stupidity uses emotions to assume, judge and react to reality. It is essential that genius has limits because that’s how it grows and expands beyond itself. It relies on the truth of facts and the negating of opinions. Stupidity relies on the opinions of others (whether accurate or erroneous) and the negating of the truth of facts in order to align with its manifest agenda.

Stupidity falls prey to the control, domination and manipulation of the egos of others because it aligns with what they ‘believe’ things should be and not what things actually are!  Genius relies on the truth whereas stupidity relies on what it ‘believes’ is the truth irrespective of what actually is the truth. The chasm of thought in between genius and stupidity is enormous. It can only be traversed by reliable witnesses who seek to live in truth for all of us and NOT just themselves.

This is why stupidity is limitless because it does not require proofs of beliefs but just the beliefs themselves; whether accurate or erroneous. Beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts accepted as true without knowing the truth or the various ‘unfoldings’ of the truth. Traverse the chasm of thought from stupidity to genius by seeking only the truth of factual and verifiable experiences. In this way you won’t allow stupidity to be limitless and you will allow genius to utilize its limits to grow and expand into a greater understanding of life and how it actually is more than what you ‘want’ it to be. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ENCOUNTERING CHALLENGES

Too many times during the course of our lives we encounter challenges that expose our weaknesses to ourselves.

We either deal with them effectively or we sweep them under that rug in order to feel good about ourselves.

Why do we incessantly avoid dealing with these weaknesses? Is it because we don’t believe we have them or is it that we simply don’t want to deal with them?

Or is it because we don’t know what to do to identify those weaknesses and convert them into strengths? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE MAJESTY OF CREATION

Beyond the beauty that stretches out right in front of you is the majesty of creation. It is abundant, enormous and available when you set aside what you believe right in front of you and embrace what you know is beyond you.

Everything you need to co-create beauty and majesty in your life is always available directly from the Divine. You don’t need anything outside of yourself to be complete within.

You just need to get out of your own way by knowing your blessings and allowing them to unfold perfectly in Divine order.

Be the perfect creation you already are and live a life replete with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEEING THROUGH THE
EYES OF OTHERS

When you start seeing yourself through the eyes of others you come to learn just how much you are ruled by your ego or your Divine wisdom.

See yourself from their eyes as sharing Divine love everlasting to all of life by living in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love each and every day of your life.

As Donald Trump rails about the ongoing use of Israeli type ‘profiling’, we all experience just what profiling does to innocent people. For example, the recent pressure cooker bomber gets shot in the leg while pumping out bullets and a black man standing next to his broken down car in the middle of the road with his arms in the air outside of a town gets shot to death. WTF is going on? The helicopter pilot says, “This dude looks bad…like he’s on something.” Is this what we get from listening to xenophobes like Donald Trump; who, BTW, is supported by most police departments?

This topsy turvy world is a result of our addiction to ‘fighting’ and ‘winning’ over seeking peace and living in mutual respect. In a world where police need to wear body cams and ‘suspects’ need to wear cameras, we have forgotten our legacy of divinity over self-centeredness. We listen to the evil Donald Trump coercively suggest that we violate our own principles in justice to selectively ‘behead’ the pressure cooker bomber. We stand by and watch innocent people with families get shot ‘while being black’ simply because their color and ‘profile’ matches those who have committed crimes in a statistical sample.

We watch murder mystery shows, bombs ripping off arms and legs of children and Wall Street thugs robbing and charging fees to elderly people who have earned the right to an unencumbered retirement. The demonization of decent people in order to sell violence and mayhem and meet the advertisers’ needs is overwhelming. We have hopped on the sled of decadence, loss of morality and simple human decency all in the quest to make a profit for someone OTHER than ourselves. We are caught up in a system of sensationalizing the ‘buying’ and ‘selling’ of ‘profiles’ in order to sell the next ‘squiggly widget’ that comes on the market.

Is it the advertisers alone? Or is it our fault for watching their bullshit? Is it the police alone? Or is it the fact that we stay at arm’s length from the people that have the charge to protect us? Is it the profiling of citizens that cause innocents to be gunned down by the police? Or is it the relinquishing of our duty to ensure that we employ only mentally and emotionally stable officers who don’t slip through the cracks in our hiring systems? We ARE all responsible to each other in not only living together, but in supporting one another by getting involved in our little slice of the world.

Do what you can in your community for positive change and it will ripple out into the world and affect everyone on this planet that ‘appears’ peaceful despite its addiction to violence, hatred and acrimony. Take a stand for peace; mutual understanding; ongoing joy; and living in Divine love everlasting. That is OUR charge and as long as we gape at the panel and comment on how things SHOULD be while doing nothing about it we will be living in a world that results from our veiled apathy. Get off of your butt and DO something to make a better world for all of us! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INTERPRETATION?

How would you interpret the meaning of this statement?

As long as you seek for something, you will get the shadow of reality and not reality itself.
~SHUNRYU SUZUKI

Are you looking or seeing? Notice the difference. One uses mental activity in hopes of producing a result, the other simply emerges. The latter allows what is already present to become visible. ~Zen Benefiel

My Answer: Seeking means that you 'believe' that the 'something' you desire is not already present within you and that you must go after it to attain it. It is living in the outside world of reflections and shadows and NOT the reality of the inside world that projects reality onto the sensed omniversal stage. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OFFENDED?

Those who are too offended by curse words are not paying attention to the meaning behind the words and the lessons they reveal.

A strategically placed 'motherfucker' emphasizes the message and drives it home. Pay attention the message behind the words more than the actual words.

That’s how you derive meaning and ultimately understanding! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MINING YOUR DATA?

Are you fearful of others mining your data? Do you not participate in nametests or meows because you don’t want them to get your friends names or monitor your activities?

Every click you make is logged, categorized and used to market products to you that align with your likes and dislikes. The fact is that no matter what you do or do not do you will still be mined by FB. So, stop minding the mining and do what you do without worry.

One thing marketers cannot make you do is click on the ads that they serve you every day. They can lead you, the horse, to water, but they can’t make you drink it.

However, they can make the ad look enticing enough for you to click on it. It is then that you must exercise JUST judgment and not allow further marketing to inundate your feed. Be ye therefore minding of mining and free from worry! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SHARING MY BLESSINGS

I come here every day to share my blessings with all of you. I am here for other reasons as well. I am here for my sanity in such an upside down world.

You see, all of you are not a fantasy but a reality to me. You give me feedback and allow me to know that I am affecting life more than be affected by it.

I might not be the man I think I want to be, but like all of you, I am a work in progress. I am always here for all of you until I take my last breath; and even after! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
