BEHIND THE SCENES

How long do you have to hold onto your faith and trust in the Divine? All of the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, actions and behaviors that you experience chip away at your faith and trust when you allow them. Do you leap toward the worst possible outcome as the only option available to you? Or do you stand firm on the divine promise of protection?

Recently, a friend of mine who has kids and works as a nurse had cashed her paycheck and returned to work. She had some bills to pay in cash and somehow her $900 in cash was stolen. No one came forward and she didn’t know what to do. I saw her and said to her that somehow, God would bring another opportunity for her to make more than that.

God’s omniverse might appear to be chaotic, but Divine order moves natural order to unfold our Divine purposes. She is still trying to make up for this loss. When she found out that last year my wife and I were facing the possibility of losing our home, she boldly offered to take a title loan out on her car to help us. Here is a woman who suffered a great loss personally from her perspective and offered us help. I burst out in tears because of the love and giving in this woman’s heart. I graciously thanked her and turned her down because we know that there will be another way. However, to know that someone who has very little was willing to put herself on the line brought me to tears.

There are good people in this world; in fact, there are GREAT people in this world! Hold onto your faith and trust in the Divine. How long you might ask? Until the eleventh hour, the fifty-ninth minute and the fifty-ninth second! When the clock strikes twelve the mercy and protection of God will come ushering forward and you will know just how great the Divine is and how great his children are.

This woman had to go back to Africa and help her family. She had no money and one of the ladies that she worked for gave her the money to fly home and help her family. God works in ways that we might not see or understand but we should always know that we are provided for and loved. The Divine orchestrated the blessing of us being able to keep our home as well.

Thank God for all that unfolds and you will be blessed with the peace, understanding and joy that Divine love brings. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

Exotica - Sands of Time

NEGATIVE ATTENTION

When you have run out of options, there is always one that you hadn’t considered. What would that be? Your ego will go to the extent of its limitations and come to a resolve that says that there are no more options. At this point, it will emotionally choose to ‘fight or flight’. Protecting you in order to survive is its job. But what else is there? Is there truly something your ego hasn’t considered? And if there is, why didn’t it reveal it to you?

Actually, it’s quite simple. The ego always wants your inner spirit to look to it and depend on it for survival. It is only when you sublimate its influence and choose to thrive in Divine love does it learn to keep its place. We are spiritual beings expressing varying degrees of Divine love through our egos. Our egos are like the handle on a hose that regulates the flow of water. If you squeeze the handle hard enough, the water flows freely. If you squeeze it lightly, the flow of water is constricted.

Allowing Divine love takes effort, contrary to what most are taught by ‘spiritual teachers’. It is not just talking to God or listening to God; it is in serving others that we open the floodgates of Divine love. It is in getting off of your ever-widening ass and going out of your way to help someone who needs it that the fulfillment of your Divine desires begin to unfold. It is stepping out of your comfort zone, your safety net and your lifestyle of mediocrity that you begin to allow the flow of Divine love to bless your life.

When you come to rely too much on your ego it will eventually let you down. It will do whatever it takes to convince you that its assessment of reality is what you need to pay attention to and fight against. It is in this thought process of resisting that you actually create more of the same problems that you have been experiencing. By giving attention to that which you feel is against you and that which you fear can harm you, you are making negative choices that will be co-created. Why? Because life flows where attention goes!

Reach out to those who need help; it doesn’t mean just giving them money; it means giving them some of you. Share your talents, skills and abilities with others; that IS giving Divine love. The path to your inner divinity begins with prayer and meditation. The fulfillment of it begins when you go out of your way to serve others. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUTH AND DIGNITY

I would rather live in the truth and have dignity than to take advantage of others and lead them astray. If I see evil being committed and I do nothing that speaks volumes about me. If I act in favor of those who cannot see evil, I am sharing Divine love and living in the truth.

Those who think only of themselves will not experience the joy of serving others. They will live in their own world and seek to enrich themselves at the expense of others. The message that they are broadcasting will visit them with what they seek and what they do not seek as well.

You cannot continue to commit harm to others and not pay the costs. Those costs will be visited upon you when you least expect them to and will cripple your ego. Share that which has been freely given to you with joy in your heart. What you sow into the hearts of others will reap the blessings of Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BALANCING 'ME' WITH 'WE'

Being perfect doesn’t mean that you think, feel, believe, say, act and behave perfectly at every moment. It means that you balance your ‘me’ agendas with ‘we’ agendas. It means that you look out for yourself AND others. It means that you don’t act until you have considered the feelings of everyone concerned.

It means that you know that you are your brother’s and sister’s keeper. Why? Because the Spirit of God is within them as it is in you. Serving others with Divine love is why we all are here in this collective experience known as the omniverse.

Be ye therefore perfect, even AS your Father which is in heaven is perfect. And what does that mean? The Father in heaven IS the Divine Infinite Spirit Creator of everything. Where is heaven? It is within you at ALL times.

You must get out of your own way to regularly visit that inner peace to maintain perfection. It is there where you know God. Go within to that which you came from and experience the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that are the essence of you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BROTHER'S AND SISTER'S KEEPER

Are you your brothers’ and sisters’ keeper? Do you feel that the welfare of others is not your concern? ‘Keepers' are those who not only look out for themselves but for the welfare of others.

They accept the responsibility of helping others become whom and what they were created to be. It doesn't mean that they impose their will on someone else, but provide a way for others to understand themselves.

If you are not a 'keeper', you are too self-centered and are not looking at the collective picture. Step out of ‘self’ and enter the awareness of ‘SELF’. It is where you will find joy everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AN EGO PROBLEM

When you believe that you create everything in your life that happens to you, surely you have an ego problem. You are NOT the only co-creator in this vast omniverse and if you choose to believe that you create everything that happens to you, you are not only fooling yourself, but are setting yourself up for disaster.

We are NOT islands in this vast omniverse. Everything is connected and there are people in this world that don’t know the Spirit of God within and only care about themselves and what they want. You CAN affect what you want to manifest but you are NOT in control of what others think, say or do.

Pray for guidance, listen for guidance and share that guidance with others. Don’t allow the egos and selfish agendas of others to control, dominate and manipulate your life. They are NOT in control; the Spirit of God IS! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING OUTSIDE YOURSELF

When you live outside of yourself you look for signs, advice from friends and social pressures to help you make decisions about your life.

When you live from within you tap into the very essence of this omniverse and KNOW what you need to do. The Divine will NEVER mislead you, forsake you or lead you into harm’s way.

You are a child of the Divine and you have divinity within you right now. Listen to it. Cherish it. Obey it. That is the path you need to follow; not the triggers of what exists outside of you.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOU ARE NOT FORSAKEN!

“And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" (which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"). ~Matthew 15:34 (New International Version).

What does this mean? Did Yeshua doubt that God was with him? Did he, in his excruciating pain, lose the knowingness of God? Hardly! He was quoting a Psalm of David; Psalm 22. According to Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary: “But, Why hast thou forsaken me? is the language of a heart binding up its happiness in God's favour. This must be applied to Christ.

In the first words of this complaint, he poured out his soul before God when he was upon the cross, Mt 27:46. Being truly man, Christ felt a natural unwillingness to pass through such great sorrows, yet his zeal and love prevailed. Christ declared the holiness of God, his heavenly Father.”

Read the transformation in Psalm 22 of the Psalmist from doubt to worry to fear; from anguish to personal disdain; from being scorned to being despised. Despite all of the behavior of the world of people lacking in awareness of Divine love, in Verse 8, the solution to this personal dilemma is summed up: “He trusts in the LORD.”

What is trust? Is it believing so much in something that you ultimately know the outcome before it happens? Did Yeshua know the outcome of his death on the cross? Verse 31 sums it up: “They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!” Living is righteousness is a personal choice to follow the Golden Rule. “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” ~Matthew 7:12 (King James Bible).

Grace is a gift of God and righteousness is a choice to be ‘like’ God. It doesn’t mean that you look to your brother and sister with disdain for their behaviors; it means that you make a ‘personal choice’ to act in a Godlike manner. To live in Divine love and share that love with all. Psalm 22 shows our journey in life from the pit of despair to the triumphant conclusion of “He/She has done it.”

Move toward the perfection of Divine love and away from the imperfection of your ego. See the truth in that which is already within you more than what others believe or proclaim. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NIPPING AT YOUR HEELS

When you feel like giving up and the dogs are nipping at your heels always remember just who and what you are; a child of the Most High. You are spirit expressing itself in this collective and shared realm of existence and what you experience in perception is tainted by what you believe and feel is happening to you.

Your experience of reality is within your brain and your brain is affected by the electro-chemical exchanges of thoughts that generate reactive feelings. What ‘appears’ to be negative can often be the gauntlet you need to traverse to grow and expand into your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Trust completely in the Divine to guide your steps and you will maintain your balance and arrive safely in Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Don’t you just love it when:  People preach form and procedure to expand their awareness while ignoring content and substance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HEARING INNER VOICES?

Hearing inner voices? How do you know if they are from good or evil?

If what you hear within contributes to the growth and expansion of you and others it is from the Divine; if it in any way diminishes or hurts yourself or another, it is not.

It does not matter what others think, say or do about what you hear within; what matters is that you know the difference between Divine love and selfishness and that you serve others with Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHY DO WE SLEEP?

Why do we sleep? To clean our brains, say US scientists. Scientists in the US claim to have a new explanation for why we sleep: in the hours spent slumbering, a rubbish disposal service swings into action that cleans up waste in the brain.

Through a series of experiments on mice, the researchers showed that during sleep, cerebral spinal fluid is pumped around the brain, and flushes out waste products like a biological dishwasher.

The process helps to remove the molecular detritus that brain cells churn out as part of their natural activity, along with toxic proteins that can lead to dementia when they build up in the brain, the researchers say.

Maiken Nedergaard, who led the study at the University of Rochester, said the discovery might explain why sleep is crucial for all living organisms. “I think we have discovered why we sleep,” Nedergaard said. “We sleep to clean our brains.”

Writing in the journal Science, Nedergaard describes how brain cells in mice shrank when they slept, making the space between them on average 60% greater. This made the cerebral spinal fluid in the animals’ brains flow ten times faster than when the mice were awake. ~The Guardian

CASCADING

As the stress builds you cut off more and more of your access to Divine peace. Things start cascading from one mistake to another. Forgetting one thing causes three others to not unfold properly and you have to backtrack to unfold things in natural order.

Missed opportunities are the result of paying too much attention to that which stresses you out. When you are in a reactive mode you are living outside of yourself and NOT living from Divine inner peace. Proact instead of react by letting the stress build on its own.

Discharge it by allowing it to pass through you into oblivion. Nothing, nothing is worth you allowing it to rob your peace. Always remember that the Divine is in control and not the stresses of life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A STEP AHEAD OF REALITY

When you listen to the Divine within you are a step ahead of reality because you have tapped into what is happening, what could happen and what will happen if you proceed along your current course. Why aren’t you listening? Do you really have BETTER things to do? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

'Reality' is not actual reality; it is a 'copy' of reality you perceive in your brain. It is the copy that is the illusion; NOT reality! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Your environment is that which you perceive and believe; not that which it is. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When things appear to be detrimental to your lifestyle, remember this. It is what it is; Divine order will unfold the greater good when you allow it to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Eschatology is a load of CRAP!!! Some are waiting for the Revelation (which was a figurative story that has already been played out) and the Rapture which has no biblical basis in fact except in the Pauline Gospel. Think about it. Bones that have turned to dust reforming into bodies as they are extracted from the earth and heading up into the sky where Jesus is awaiting them. Please, grow up! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If judges are from Pluto(cracy), then lawyers are from Uranus! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Trust the Divine to unfold Divine order perfectly in your life. Anything else is your ego trying to control, dominate and manipulate that which is beyond your control! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Thank you all for your love and support. The friendship you have given us has helped us through these trying times. With gratitude we give thanks to all of you. May God bless you all and all of your families as you have blessed us. Peace, dear ones! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The mind can see what the eyes cannot. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Remember, the higher you go the more you will stretch; sometimes more than the imagination! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

How can you expect to master where you want to be when you cannot master where you are. Mastering where you are is being here in the now. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When one's illusions are compatible with Divine law, then you know exactly what the truth is and when to share it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEVER compromise with aberrance; if you do, you will be what you know is not right! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Woe be to those who separate Divine love into that which benefits them and them alone; for in that action they have created their own undoing and melancholy. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Woe be to those who don’t consider their actions as affecting others and their lives; for in their lack of consideration lay the roots of their selfishness and self-centeredness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Woe be to those who don’t care for the well-being of others; for in their tunnel vision is the pathway to their own destruction. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Bearing false witness to 'win' is like shooting yourself in the foot to win the race. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Be Ye Therefore Perfect! by Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO GETS IT IN THE END?

People some of the times believe that evil will get theirs in the end. And what end is that? The end of a situation? The end of their lives? We might not ever know but one thing is for sure, you WILL reap what you sow. You will receive a harvest from the effort, or lack thereof, of the work that you perform.

When you lie, cheat and steal you might get away with it for a season or two, but your own guilt, karma and misalignment with Divine order will be your own undoing. If you are an egomaniac, guilt will never be an issue because you feel that just because you are you; and that you are justified in your actions.

If you are focused on self-reliance alone, karma will kick in to teach you that you are not the only fish in the sea. If you continually live in misalignment with Divine order, then one opportunity to grow and expand after another will pass you by because you are not willing to share Divine love with others.

Many fool themselves into believing that it is just their actions that will make God love them; nothing could be further from the truth. What is in your heart and the intention that results in your mind is what allows you to experience the peace, understanding and the joy of living in Divine love.

Sow the seeds of greatness in others and leave them alone unless they ask for help. Divine order will germinate those seeds when it is appropriate for them. The farmer never digs up the seeds to see if they have taken root; he trusts in nature to do what it does to make the seeds grow and expand toward the light.

Be a giver of Divine seeds and allow others to grow and expand at their own rate. Those who lie, cheat and steal will experience what they have sown in Divine order. It is not your job to help them get there; it IS your job to let them go and continue your journey through life.

You are here for a Divine purpose; express that purpose by sharing Divine love!  Pray for Divine guidance; meditate to listen to Divine guidance; go out into your community and share that Divine guidance with everyone you meet. The perfection of divine love will bless you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GOD BLESSES

God blesses all who listen to the inner voice of silence.

God blesses all who feel to the inner presence of stillness.

God blesses all who know the inner picture of peace.

God blesses all who share Divine love with all.
~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS

Why is it that some ‘conservatives’ on the Right use ‘self-‘right’eous’ indignation as their motivation for labeling those on the Left as ‘liberal’.

It is because they hold onto their precious ego’s yearnings to wield enough power to ensure not only their self-survival, but to thrive in the self-aggrandizement and personal satisfaction of getting one over on the other guy.

It is a gambler’s mentality that will do anything to win; even at the prospect of causing pain and suffering for others who are NOT like them.

It is separation, division and the generation of acrimony to cover the facts with a façade of doubt in order to manifest an ultimately selfish agenda.

Don’t be fooled by those who speak the ‘right’ words without the true intent in their heart. It is obvious when you see the fruits that they bear.

As Yeshua repeatedly rebuked the Pharisees, call them out for what they are; obscurers of the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HORSE LOGIC

True Logic has nothing to do with the thinking of Horse Logic (what is non sequitur); because conclusions that do not follow their premises use hidden beliefs, convictions and emotions to convince others that what is being thought of is true (while hiding the fallacy) must be valid as well. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SPEAKING FROM BELIEF

When you speak from belief, conviction and emotion and 'feel' that it is justified and real, you are fooling yourself with a self-fulfilling prophecy programmed into your subconscious mind as being true and correct.

Look at the facts exactly how they are and realize that the analyses of the results of those facts are always tempered by your perceptions; guided by the hidden agendas of your human ego.

Test the validity of any ‘facts’ before embracing any conclusion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONSULTATION
Consultation with Dr. Dean

BLESSED ARE THOSE

What do you value? Do you value truth and honesty? Do you value the sanctity of life? Do you value yourself enough to be kind to others? Or are you just saying the words without the intention of meaning them? Only YOU know that.

If you are a person that truly loves the Divine you will do the right thing NO MATTER WHAT others say about you. They might call you crazy; they might call you stupid; they might call you a liar.

As long as YOU know your Divine stability, your access to Divine knowledge and your expression of Divine truth, no one else can harm you.

They will bite at your heels, ruin your reputation and boil you in oil but never, NEVER, back down to their egos and their lies.

They WILL pay somehow for their aberrance and so will you if you let them get to you in any way. Maintain your peace, live in the truth and allow their aberrances to pass through you unfettered by reactive emotions.

Your maintenance of peace is your greatest armor of Divine love. They will be found out for their lies and manipulations someday. It is not your job to bring this about; they will engineer their own undoing when they need it the most.

Be forthright, love God and live in the truth. The evil ones will have to deal with themselves. Trust in the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CALLING A SPADE A SPADE

Calling a spade a spade is reality. Calling it a soft brush is lying to obscure what it is and using it paint the wall will NOT yield the appropriate results!

Be specific, be accurate and be truthful. When you alter the truth to gain allies you are polluting your soul with the death of your heart.

Stop that which cares only for self and move forward with the Divine love already in your heart. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is so easy for you to say you understand or relate to something that someone else is going through; however, what you remember about your similar experience is what you have concluded from 20/20 hindsight and NOT 20/20 eyesight. You have the benefit of understanding what came next while the person going through it doesn’t.

They are experiencing the unknown, the anxiety and the emotional horror of ‘not knowing’ what happens next. If you truly want to help them, don’t tell them you understand and can relate, tell them that whatever comes you will be there ‘with them’ to help them through it. That means more to someone than brushing it off, minimizing its effect or saying you understand and relate when, in actuality, you don’t.

When problems arise for your friends being there for them and traversing the gauntlet together is more apropos than telling them you understand, relate and pat them on the back. Be a true friend and get in the dirt with them. That is what friendship is all about. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IN THE MIDDLE

Are you ‘over the top’ or ‘under the bottom’? Perhaps you are right ‘in the middle’? Wherever you are it is a result of what you are feeling right now. Are you feeling satisfied, inspired and fulfilled? Or are you feeling dissatisfied, uninspired and unfulfilled?

Your feelings are the result of what you accept and believe as true, what you yearn or desire and what you move toward or away from. Your success in being fulfilled is the direct result of how you deal with your feelings within and how you live with them without.

Your feelings are the barometer of how you look at yourself and what you know you must do in order to live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love; or conversely, discord, intolerance, sorrow and enmity.

How you react to your feelings and subsequently learn to proact ‘from’ them determines whether or not you will be successful in being fulfilled in your life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EVER PRESENCE

The Spirit of God is ever-present within you. Allow its flow of Divine love through you and you will feel better about yourself, others and life. Resist its flow of Divine love through you and you will feel worse about yourself, others and life.

Aligning yourself with Divine order means allowing Divine love to flow through you; misaligning yourself with Divine order means resisting the flow of Divine love through you.

Why would you want to travel on the rocky, potholed and gravel road when you could travel comfortably on the smooth, level and paved road?

Traveling on the difficult road comes from the belief that life is a struggle and you have to fight your way to freedom. Traveling on the easy road comes from the belief that through surrendering your ego to the Spirit of God you will live in peace and find your way to freedom.

Who do you trust? Your ego or God? Trust both but ultimately listen to Divine guidance more than seeking selfish agendas. Allowing peace is more fulfilling than resisting and fighting that which is not peace. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SENSITIVITY

Let’s talk about sensitivity. A joke is a joke unless someone is so sensitive that they take it as an insult. When you feel that someone is going over the line it’s time for an ego check. If something ‘offends’ you, then perhaps it’s time to look at just who’s in charge.

Over sensitivity reveals emotional scars that trigger posturing and fear. What others say is just what it is; it is what others say and nothing more. Reacting to what someone says as being childish reveals emotional buttons that need healing.

Let what others say pass through you without any emotional attachment and be who were created to be. A spiritual being having a human experience and laughing at what others think they know about you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FRIENDS

I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. All of you have a permanent home in my heart rent free!

What you have given me I can never repay but I will continue to do my best to be of service to your hearts.

Because of all of you I now know the true meaning of friendship; sharing Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT YOU HAVE

What you do with what you believe you have makes you what you are. What you do with what you know makes you who you were created to be.

Be that which you know you are no matter what you perceive and believe opposes you. Knowing trumps believing when you trust in the Divine to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order!

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Always remember that what you need to hear comes when you need to hear it in order for you to use it in your life.

The Divine speaks through all of us and when we share what the Divine says we are sharing Divine love. Thank you all for being there for me to share with you.

Your love and support completes my life and brings me peace. God bless you all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU ON A MISSION IN LIFE?

Are you on a mission in life? Have you decided just what you want to do with your life and you actively pursue that every day? A mission is an important goal or purpose that is accompanied by strong conviction [dictionary.com]. Belief in something and a subsequent ability to know its importance gives birth to a conviction of living in your Divine purpose. When you know this purpose, you develop goals to reach for to manifest this purpose in your life. One such person was the legendary Johnny Appleseed. “John Chapman was born in Leominster, Massachusetts and later served in the Continental Army with General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War.

According to some accounts, John, at the age of eighteen, persuaded his half-brother Nathaniel, eleven, to go west with him in 1792. The popular image is of Johnny Appleseed spreading apple seeds randomly, everywhere he went. In fact, he planted nurseries rather than orchards, built fences around them to protect them from livestock, left the nurseries in the care of a neighbor who sold trees on shares, and returned every year or two to tend the nursery. He would tell stories to children, spread the ‘The New Church’ gospel to the adults, receiving a floor to sleep on for the night, sometimes supper in return. Chapman was quick to preach the Gospel as he traveled, and during his travels he converted many Native Americans, whom he admired, to Christianity.

The Native Americans regarded him as someone who had been touched by the Great Spirit; even hostile tribes left him strictly alone. He once wrote, "I have traveled more than 4,000 miles about this country, and I have never met with one single insolent Native American." Johnny Appleseed cared very deeply about animals, including insects. When he heard a horse was to be put down, he bought the horse, bought a few grassy acres nearby, and turned the horse out to recover. When it did, he gave the horse to someone needy, exacting a promise to treat the horse humanely. During his later life, he was a vegetarian.

A memorial in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, OH is located on the summit of the grounds in Section 1349. A circular garden surrounds a large stone upon which a bronze statue of Chapman stands; face looking skywards, holding an apple seedling tree in one hand and book in the other. A bronze cenotaph identifies him as Johnny Appleseed with a brief biography and eulogy [Source: Wikipedia].” As the legend goes, apple and pear trees were introduced to the indigenous tribes of Native Americans by Johnny Appleseed. He, in essence, was sowing the seeds of greatness for many to share. Whether mostly legend or fact, his story is about caring enough for life to bring what sustains it to many.

When you plant an idea of love in another it might not take root when you think it should. It is not your job to water that seed, but to plant it.Your legacy of life is to sow the seeds of unconditional love; whether you like or dislike the behaviors of others know that they are children of the Most High, just like you. Give them what has been given to you and you will prosper in life. Withhold it, and you will cut yourself off from that which gives life. It is your choice to plant the seeds; even the soil appears not to be fertile. Nothing, in reality, is ever wasted. When it is shared, it is freely given from the vehicle of the heart and the fuel of that vehicle is Divine love.

The more you give, the more you receive because you align yourself with the Divine order of the omniverse. Respect ALL of life; share that which has blessed you and you will be blessed. The blessings occur at the moment that you share them. You might not feel the seeds being planted in your heart at that moment, but they will surely take root and grow into beauty in your heart. Like Johnny Appleseed, sow the seeds of greatness and go about your way. It is your legacy to share that which has been freely given to you when you truly know the blessings of living in Divine love everlasting. It's time for all of us to be a 'Johnny Soulseed'! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OUR ONLY CHESAPEAKE

The video, “Our Only Chesapeake” (uploaded on Oct 1, 2006), shows the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and sends the message of love for the bay. The song is from the album, “Songs Of The Seasons” by Vic Sadot (vicsadot.com). Vic sings with his niece, nephew and siblings on this feisty call to preserve our great Chesapeake Bay watershed area. I am playing synth horn on this song from a haunting melody in Vic’s head and my two youngest kids are joining his niece, nephew and siblings in the chorus. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO DO YOU ANSWER TO?

Who do you answer to? Your selfish yearnings or your Divine desires? Do you think, feel, say or do whatever it takes to fulfill your egotistical or divine agendas? Or do you step back and observe just how things are unfolding to understand just who you are allowing to be in charge of your life?

If you answer primarily to ‘self’, things will unfold according to your will and what you think you need to do to survive. If you answer primarily to ‘SELF’, things will unfold according to Divine will and your life will thrive with Divine love. Who you answer to is who you will be.

Be ye therefore perfect in your Divine desires while minimizing your selfish yearnings. You will be answering to that which has your best interests at heart along with the best interests of others. Choose a life where you are thriving more than just surviving! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

POINT OF KNOW RETURN

When you realize that you are at the ‘point of know return’ you begin to feel the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that has always been within you and surrounding you. It comes from the result of banging your head against the wall of the external world and trying to make sense of it.

You observe the acrimonious behavior of egomaniacal people only thinking of themselves and lashing out with resistance and fighting like that is their only solution to the ills of the world. They always choose to ‘fight’ cancer, to ‘fight’ those who are trying to hurt them and to ‘fight’ that which they don’t want in their lives; they choose the method of ‘fighting’ which is the very thing that keeps what they don’t want in their lives not realizing that fact at all!

What you resist persists and what you allow is in the now. Be here, in this moment, right now and KNOW that the Divine is in control. Return to that which has given you life and stop fighting what you perceive is robbing you of life. When you step off of the battlefield and observe from on top of the mountain the discord and fighting you come to know that you don’t have to participate in that which harms you.

See and know clearly that the Divine is always there within you guiding and directing you to inner peace along the path of ‘knowing’ instead of just ‘believing’. Believing is a result of your acceptance and effort and knowing is the result of letting of what you perceive and allowing the truth of Divine love to guide you on the return trip home to your inner spirit. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A PERFECT BEING OF LIGHT

I am a perfect being of light that has been taught for many years that I am not. I was taught this time and again to ‘keep me in my place’; to ensure that I wouldn’t do what others feared to do.

The Divine is perfect and doesn’t create imperfection. It is we who take the perfection of divinity and make it imperfect. We are taught the perceptions of duality, separation and competition.

We accept what we are taught as true to ‘fit in’ with the rest of the lost souls striving for divine perfection. In reality, there is no striving for that which we already are; perfect divine spiritual beings living in our perceptions of duality and trying to understand what it is all about.

Know this; the Divine is perfect and has created you perfectly for your Divine purpose. What you see as imperfect is your perception of yourself based on what you have been taught and not how the Divine ‘sees’ you.

Be that which you truly are and not what you think, feel, believe, say, act and behave. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO FILTERS NEEDED

When you listen to what others say about how you ‘should’ be you are getting a ‘filtered’ version of Divine wisdom. Living outside of yourself is where you are when you continually seek counsel from others you ‘respect’ or ‘admire’. Start spending time more and more each and every day with the Divine within and cut out the middleperson.

You do NOT need Divine wisdom to be filtered by others thoughts and beliefs. Their perceptions of Divine wisdom are designed for their hearts and not for yours. Your perspective is just that; your perspective. Trust that which gives you life and does not take away from it! Don’t buy into the concept of ‘sin’ and ‘falling short’ of the glory of God.

God is not glorious and egotistical. Those are human qualities that we have put onto God and NOTHING could be further from the truth. God is not there with a ruler measuring your righteousness and behaviors. God has created you for a Divine purpose and DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES!!! Our perceptions of God are what create the mistakes from NOT understanding Divine love.

All of life IS God’s pure creation and until we learn to see the Divine in all of it we are fooling ourselves with false concepts of ‘falling short’ and being ‘sinful’. Those concepts were forged by the Catholic Church and the Protestant Reformation. They were designed to keep their constituents ‘in line’ with the churches’ ‘take’ on Christianity.

Wake up to the reality that God is perfect and only creates perfection! That’s why we were all given Divine grace; the ability to allow our perceptions to grow and expand into the reality of Divine perfection. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO YOU WEREN'T

Before you knew who you are you knew who you weren’t. You accepted that version of you as real and lived from it. When it no longer worked for you the time came when you had to grow and expand into a new version of you. Along the way you tripped and fell, stumbled on the path and got back up to face another day.

Your resolve came from the bumps in the road that you perceived that you had overcome when in reality it wasn’t what you had overcome, but what you accepted as being a part of your individual journey. The road to you is an infinite loop of rediscovery; it is knowing that you will be by this way again someday and hopefully stronger and wiser from the journey.

When you realize that your inner SELF is the guide and your outer self is the vehicle, your journey is still fraught with roadblocks, bumps and impediments; however, you know how to pass these perceptions and realize the joy of reaching your perceived destination.

The infinite loop appears finite in perception, but in reality is your spirit extending itself into the journey of life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE!

How beautiful you are! How full of grace and love are you that you smile wholeheartedly! What you give in Divine love adds to the peace, understanding and joy of this ever expanding omniverse.

You are a divine co-creator who contributes to life with what you share. Share Divine love and watch the omniverse become the Kingdom of God.

Watch all of life grow and expand into that which it came from; Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DIVINE STREAM
OF WELL-BEING

Are you feeling the divine stream of well-being flowing through you right now? This stream carries perfect health, timely wealth, ongoing prosperity and infinite abundance. It is always there and can be readily accessed when you go within and tap into its infinite beauty. Feel the running waters of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love coursing through your being.

Know that as a divine being of light you are worthy to receive the blessings it freely gives. Allow this stream to bathe you in Divine love and feel the inner peace it brings; the understanding of life; the joy of living! Resist it not and it will be your guide to that which unfolds your Divine purpose in Divine order. Go within every day and open the floodgates of this infinite stream of Divine love.

No matter what is going on in your life right now, you can go within and feel the waters of life flowing through you. Stand firm on your commitment to going within and be flexible on what you receive from the waters of life. Move toward that which gives you life and away from that which denies its perfection and abundance.

Make the choice to become what you were created to be and follow Divine guidance to get there. When you do, you will realize that there is no journey; just the allowance of where you are and what you were created to be. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHOSEN TO BE

You are where you are right now because that is where you have chosen to be. Your values, beliefs and choices reveal just where you are.

Why not choose to be what you were created to be and allow it to unfold in Divine order? After all, if what you have chosen has not unfolded what you know you should be doing, then why not make the choices necessary to unfold what you should be doing?

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE

Move toward that which you know you are and don’t allow what you believe you are to get in the way.

The Divine guides you through knowing your way and the ego demands that you believe what it says is right; generally, contrary to what you know is right deep within your heart.

Clarity of purpose requires peaceful experiences and obscurity of purpose occurs when you are distracted from what you know by engaging what you believe. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

KNOWING MORE THAN BELIEVING

Those who do not see the perfection in the Divine Infinite Spirit are using their limited intelligence to observe what they believe and NOT what they inherently know.

When you are eternally consistent in your inconsistencies it is based more on the fact that belief is what drives you more than knowing.

That which gives life IS perfect and that which observes it sees imperfection because it does not truly understand the perfection of Divine love.

Stop looking outside for what can only be found inside. If you seek truth go to where it resides; not where it appears to reside.

Stop fooling yourself with the distractions of the ego and see things as your inner spirit knows they are. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

Who do you think you are? Do you think that you are all that? Do you think that what you have to offer is so special? Do you believe that in the grand scheme of all things that you are THAT important?

If you think that you are special that means that someone else is NOT special. If you think that you are all that then that means that others aren’t all that. Anytime you elevate your perception of who you are over ANYONE else you have made a grave mistake.

You have separated yourself from the flow of Divine love through you in favor of making yourself feel special.

Get off of your high horse and get down in the dirt with the rest of us who are knowing that the spirit within is what makes ALL of us special. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INFINITE, LOVING
AND KIND

I am that which is infinite, loving and kind. No one can separate me from that which I am unless I allow it to be.

Allow that which you are and disallow that which you aren’t. Accept and allow; reject and don’t resist.

Let go of that which creates the yearnings for fighting and be what you truly are; the Divine in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DISSOLVE INTO OBSCURITY

When you acclimate yourself to being who and what you truly are the devices that chip away at your peace begin to dissolve into obscurity.

There is divine presence, divine knowing, divine power and divine creation in knowing just who and what you truly are; it is turning point of the allowance of that which is over that which isn’t.

Living in Divine love means that you accept who you are, allow what you are to unfold and be that which has created all of life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUTH BAROMETER

Turning your back on what you know is the truth is paramount to the selfish manipulation of just who and what you are. When fear of the results of that which you know will happen is used as a barometer to obscure the truth you are manipulating outcomes to your own self-serving ends.

You are not being Divine love for you are being that which is fearful. There is NO fear in Divine love and until you accept this truth you will be fooling yourself into believing you are justified for your allowance of fear as the basis for your own self-survival.

Give up what appears to be in favor of what is and you will be allowing Divine love to be your barometer of truth. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INCONGRUENCIES

What is it about those who say one thing and project another? Do the rest of us have to be affected by their obvious incongruencies? How can you tell when someone is displaying incongruencies?

Read their body language. When their body language reveals their subconscious projections, anyone can tell what they are really doing as opposed to what they are saying they are doing. It takes learning what those bodily cues reveal.

The most popular understanding is someone crossing their arms while speaking. This reveals that they are closed off and are only listening to what they are saying. However, there are many other submodalities to consider when ‘reading’ body language.

You can know exactly who is lying and who is telling the truth by what their body language reveals. There are many articles on reading body language and it’s good to know the various ‘techniques’ that are available.

In order to know whether or not you are dealing with liars or truthful people, you must be aware of ‘all’ of the languages at your disposal. Be aware and understand what signals are being sent; then you will know exactly who you are dealing with and be able to respond accordingly.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVIN' ON THE EDGE

What does it mean to be ‘livin’ on the edge’? It is an idiom that means that you have the type of life in which you are often involved in exciting, challenging or even dangerous activities. Aerosmith has a song depicting exactly what it is; read the lyrics below. In actuality, everything we do comes from the edge of consciousness and becomes manifest in our lives from us livin’ on the edge.

When you see an iceberg from above the surface of the ocean you only see what is on top. Below is the bulk of what makes up the iceberg and pushes it above the surface. Like a seed that moves through the dirt toward the light your thoughts reinforced by your feelings bring forth what we all see from you.

However, what is within you is hidden from view and is what has created what we all see. If you consistently think thoughts of mutual growth and expansion reinforced by feelings of exhilaration and joy you will affect your world positively.

If you consistently think thoughts of selfishness and distraction reinforced by feelings of acrimony and dissension you will affect your world negatively. Sound too simple? That’s why most people never get it.

It is your inner attitude that creates what is reflected in your outer world. Project that which you wish to receive and your awareness will be focused on the opportunities to live it. God is within you every day so seek the guidance of the Divine but live your life on the ‘edge’ of your consciousness creating your reality.

Be diligent in what you think and be discerning in what you feel about what you think. When the two are in alignment, the creation of that seed will manifest. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW WORTHY ARE YOU?

When will you realize just how worthy you are of living in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance? Is it when you finally know that the Divine is within you and that you are Divine love? Or is it when others have beaten you down to the point that you have given up on everything?

Whatever it may be the fact remains that everything you need to be what you were created to be is within you RIGHT NOW! Think about it; feel it; know it; be it! You are a child of the Most High and you are divinity in action.

Do what you were created to do; share Divine love! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOOKING UP

Each and every morning she used to get up to the call of the elder statesman cat Ziggy gently combing her hair. Ziggy passed on a couple of months ago and she still mourns him. Every day she gets up and gropes for her glasses and heads for the kitchen. Before she has one sip of morning coffee she feeds our furry friends. They dance separately in excitement as she tries to wake up enough to feed them. She dons her robe to go outside and feed the ferals who have no one to love them and no food to eat. They live in the back shed in order to stay warm and guarded from the weather. Every morning they are there waiting for her. If she doesn’t come right away they start their chorus of beckoning sounds in reaction to their hunger.

Whether hot or cold, dry or raining, windy or snowing, their needs are for their basic survival. I have seen her go without so that they could not. I have seen her talk to them, pet them and love them. I have seen her immediately put down what she was doing, no matter how important, to meet their needs. Her dedication to support their life with food and love is exemplary. Without her, they would never survive. Without her, they would not live as long as they have. Without the love in her heart for their very lives they would not survive.

I saw her take an 8 oz kitten, who was heading for being a possum snack, and bring him back to health. He cried in excruciating pain every time he visited the litter box. She cleaned his rear and applied Vaseline until he was healed. He is now over ten pounds and is the alpha male in our home. I’ve seen her be responsible to life and accountable for maintaining it.

Who is she? She is my talented and beautiful wife Elizabeth; the woman who I fell in love with one morning when she was admiring her Morning Glories. She is the woman who has stuck by me when others attacked, tried to take advantage and accused me of things I would never do. I am one blessed man to have her in my life. When I begin to feel that I am overwhelmed and persecuted, I think of how much she believes in me and supports my dreams. I virtually place myself in the shed as a feral cat and look up to her in thanks for being there every day to make sure that I survive.

We have survived together because of the love for each other and the love from our furry pals. Please visit our website dedicated to helping our friends. If it is in your heart to help us in our mission to help us with our friends, then please do. Several of our friends here on FB have helped us in the past. We would like to thank our consistent sponsors F.R. Rittenhouse and Andy Pocklington for all of your help God bless all of you and thank you for all of your support. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEPARATION FROM
DIVINE LOVE

Anytime that you think you are better than anyone else who doesn’t have a job like you is when your separation from Divine love is obvious. Go ahead, say that others are moochers, others are living off of the state and that they need to get jobs to support their families. Go ahead and vote for the treasonous bastard congresspersons who are allowing corporations to ship our jobs overseas while accepting bribes. Go ahead, you evil bastards who are only thinking of yourselves and not your brothers and sisters in your community who need jobs. Go ahead you self-righteous selfish bastards and label those who are the working poor as burdens on society.

You will reap your reward, rest assured. You will receive the evil you have sown against your brothers and sisters. Yeshua told you what to do and you have ignored what he said to fulfill your selfish agendas. Vipers!!! You WILL reap what you have sown just as sure as you take your next breath. This omniverse is a one of balance and order amid chaos. The Divine WILL implement peace in Divine order and nothing, including your selfishness, will be able to stop it.

The more you fight to control, dominate and manipulate others is the more you will be destined for failure. Wake up and listen to the voice of peace and be what the Divine created you to be and not what your ego drives you to do. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SOILED YOUR HEART

When you have turned around the joy of beauty into the disdain of the truth, you have soiled your heart with the selfish yearnings of dominance and submission to that which abhors the truth.

Living in truth means experiencing divinity in all of life and respecting its presence by sharing Divine love with all! Pursuing selfish yearnings creates the perception of divine separation and yields an experience of life that diminishes the awareness and experience of your inner divinity.

In essence, you cut yourself off from your perfect and natural state of well-being when you live in yearning, craving and fear. You have the power to choose to follow your inner divinity or your selfish yearnings.

What you choose creates your experience of life. Choose wisely. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DISEMBOWELED

When the 'haves' disembowel the job market and then starve the workers, they are no more than destroyers of life and purveyors of death.

There is a special place in hell for these 'people'.

They might enjoy the bliss of corporate welfare for now, but thank God they will fall soon. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STOPPING CORPORATE RAPE

Until we all realize that together we can stop the corporate world from raping us, they will continue to do so. Boycott all that they sell and watch them fall to their knees in pain.

Cut off their blood supply of monetary profit and air supply of sales and they will gasp for breath. Hit 'em where it hurts!

After all, they have sent our jobs overseas, wasted our tax dollars and have engineered the banks to make profit without paying taxes.

They have done all of this and have gotten away with it. It's up to us to stop them before they kill all of us. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Feeling worthy within comes from recognizing the Divine within you and allowing it to flow Divine love through you into the lives of others no matter what anyone else says or does.

THE NEXT LEVEL

Sometimes you have to go to the next level to handle evil. What level is that? One that affords everyone the opportunity to know just who the evil ones are! It is a difficult job at times but when you know that you are living in the truth you CANNOT allow evil to flourish.

Why? Because what evil you allow in the world is the evil that will bring you down. You must TRUST in the Divine to guide your way and know that the truth will be apparent.

When truth and justice are no longer benchmarks for living an honest life it is time for those who don’t to have a rue awakening; one that exposes them for just what they are; liars, manipulators and agenda manifestors.

Woe be to those who bend the truth to win in court; they will have to live with their lies and deal with what comes with that. May God have mercy on their wretched souls. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AN IMAGE

An image is an internal perception of what you think and feel you have observed. It is a copy of what you have sensed that is created in your brain to ‘represent’ that which you have observed. It is NOT the real thing!

It is a representation of it. We are created in the image and likeness of the Divine. We see ourselves as less than what we truly are; we are truly spiritual beings expressing ourselves in physical form.

When we let go of our perceptions of whom and what we are and live in the knowing of whom and what we are we truly transcend into a state of consciousness that projects our Divine purposes being manifested in Divine order.

Our lives will then truly reflect that which we project and our subsequent image of that will bring us peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

Be that which you truly are and dismiss that which you aren’t; you are NOT your beliefs and you are what you KNOW! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR VESSEL

Your heart mind connection is ever present as a vessel of water holds its contents in its own shape. Are you filling your vessel with violence, deception, acrimony and negativity from the onslaught of the modern media?

That negativity will conform to the shape of your vessel and become who you are and what others will see. It’s the same for those who choose to fill their vessel with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love; their positivity will conform to the shape of their vessel and become who they are and what others see.

Only fools hold negativity and believe it won’t affect them; only wise ones hold positivity and know that it blesses them and every one that they encounter. The purity of your thoughts in your mind and the feelings in your heart are tainted by that which takes away from life and by that which adds to it.

What thoughts and feelings are you entertaining? Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REFLECTION OF YOUR VALUES

Whatever burden you are carrying know that it is a reflection of the values you have adopted and stand behind. Anytime you take a stand for truth the perception of falsehood is created in the minds and hearts of others who live in fear.

They must push against, resist and fight that which they don’t understand or what they don’t ‘want’ to understand because they have an agenda that is fear based. They will portray you as narcissistic, self-serving and deceptive because those are the values they have adopted as being real to them.

The only way they can live with themselves is paint a picture of you that is THEM and NOT you. This way, they can be heralded for their aberrances and ‘get away with it’. They are fooling themselves because you never ‘get away with’ not reaping the consequences of what you have sown.

Sow the seeds of greatness and not division and acrimony. The flowers that grow from those seeds are a reflection of the one who has sown them. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TRUTH IS WITHIN

When your heart is heavy with the chaos and deceptions of the world always remember that the truth is within you right now.

Embrace that truth and shine forth your light into the darkness surrounding you. Be that beacon of light that others use to navigate the rough seas.

For in your sharing of Divine love lays the connection of ‘Divine light’ that brings us all to the realization that we are ONE in spirit and love divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE MOUNTAINTOP

Have you experienced that every time you find "inner peace" that some external influence comes along and wrecks it?

When we polarize ourselves with peace chaos is so out of balance it moves toward us seeking balance.

The perception of this struggle is just that; a perception, a copy, an image of that which is beyond our perception.

The height of the mountaintop is always within you. Live from that and NOT the perception of the struggle. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REAL TO YOU

What you perceive as real, whether constrictions or helplessness is what IS real to you. The truth is that what other people decide about you is what they feel is right for them and it ultimately has no effect on you unless you allow it to be.

When you tell the truth and are made out to be a false witness you now have to deal with others' interpretations of who you are. It cannot and will not hurt you unless you allow it to.

Peace and serenity come from the truth within and not from the opinions of others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FOR A REASON

The truth is that you are where you are for a reason; to fulfill your Divine purpose.

Being here and sharing your insights with all of us is helping others and making all of us rich in spirit.

Peace and blessings to all of you! You ARE beautiful souls! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PERCEIVING THE PUZZLE

When you love what you don’t understand you send out ripples of energy that affect just how you perceive the puzzle. What you might at first perceive as detrimental will grow into what is advantageous for your growth and expansion.

As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place the image it displays takes on form and creates perception. Perception leads to value comparison and ultimately belief in what is actually happening.

Circumvent this sometimes arduous process by knowing the truth within. Seeing the end result with Divine vision relays a clear and effective picture of the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order.

The picture on the box isn’t always an accurate representation of what you create. It is a guide to move you toward the joy of putting the pieces together successfully to form the desired picture.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SOMETHING YOU AREN'T?

If winning were everything, then why is it that in order to win you must lose what you value and who you ‘are’ to become something you aren’t at this moment? Winning implies a struggle, fight or battle to overcome what appears to be against you.

In order to win, someone must lose. However, in order to lose, someone doesn’t have to ‘win’. Fighting, resisting and struggling are perceptions of lack and limitation that imply that you are losing and not winning.

Don’t buy into the illusion that you must fight to overcome an obstacle that appears to be an impediment to what you desire to achieve. When you share Divine love with all everyone ‘wins’ because you are giving that which created all of us in the first place.

You are contributing to life and not taking away from it by fighting perceptions that aren’t real. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OBEY YOUR HEART

When you teach your mind to obey your heart you are sharing Divine love within your being and unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order.

When you teach your heart to obey your mind you are constricting the flow of Divine love into your world.

When you balance what you know in your heart with what you observe with your mind you are riding the crest of the wave of fulfillment into complete actualization.

Trust in that which guides your heart and temper your mind with that guidance; be the divinity within you and all else will unfold perfectly in your life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING

The obvious tool of the ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ is to appear as something other than they truly are. By creating a façade of endearment the wolf can fulfill its agenda of tricking its prey into believing that it is one of the ‘prey’. It looms in close quarters fostering the distraction of the sheep from being aware of whom it is by ‘becoming’ one of them. It is a complete deception attained by control, domination and manipulation of its prey in order for the prey to let down its guard long enough for the wolf to strike; especially when the sheep ‘want’ to believe that its one of them! That’s the core of the deception.

When some profess to ‘just send them love’ and all will be alright, it is buying into the ‘belief’ that all people will gravitate toward what is good for everyone. NOT TRUE!!! There are MANY wolves in sheep’s clothing that only care about themselves and will say or do ANYTHING to maintain their façade. They will lie, cheat and steal to protect their façade and will do it at all costs. Just sending them love is NOT the complete answer to their aberrant behavior.

Calling them out on their lies and manipulative behaviors is part of the solution as well. Letting others know not to step into their snare is another part as well. When you know evil is lurking and you do not let others know where it is lurking is NOT sharing Divine love. It is being selfish, disinterested or apathetic. If you truly care about sharing Divine love and ‘sending’ it to others, then you stand on the truth and shine a light on the darkness.

If you don’t, then you are part of the problem and not a part of the solution. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
