ENTITLEMENT

What is it about those who feel entitled to more than the rest of us? Is it because they have worked harder at developing something, spent more time at their passion or have invested their life savings in something that they feel they deserve more? Or is it their egos saying that they deserve a bounty just for putting in the effort even though the results are less than stellar?

There is nothing wrong with wanting and working for the best in life. What is wrong is feeling that you are better than everyone else and deserve favor simply because you are you. That is your ego talking and it needs to be put in check. It needs to know that it can get what it ‘wants’ but NOT at the expense of others.

Entitlement means that you ‘have a right’ to something that you ‘feel’ you do; whether it be by the appointment of others or by yourself. You do have a ‘right to life’ by the peaceful essence of Divine presence! You do have a ‘right to love’ by the joyful power of Divine love. You do have a ‘right to liberty’ by the understanding of Divine knowledge. You do have the ‘right to pursue happiness’ by the unfolding expression of Divine creativity. All of these ‘rights’ are freely given by Divine grace; they are NOT a natural expression of your selfish ego feeling that it’s ‘entitled’ to them simply because it exists in contrast to other egos.

The only entitlement we truly have is that we are children of the Most High Divine Creator Infinite Spirit of God and that we are stewards of the entire creation. It is up to us to integrate what we separate, unify what we break down and create unity among diversity. How do we do this? By praying for guidance; by meditating to receive guidance; and by serving others with our talents, skills and abilities to contribute to our mutual growth and expansion. It requires diligence, practice and a dedication to sharing Divine love!

We have been given the greatest gift by the Divine; not a sense of entitlement but an understanding and gratefulness for Divine grace. Be thankful for the events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and others who cross your path for they are all opportunities to share Divine love and minimize the ego’s sense of entitlement. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DRIVING IN THE NAILS

What does it take to express the values that you KNOW are life-giving? Does it take too much effort or do you just ‘feel’ that it will? What if you took a stand on these values and make the declaration that ‘the buck stops here’? And what does that mean? It is a metaphor for accepting the responsibility for what you will allow to exist in your life. If something exists outside of what you ‘value’ and it ultimately hurts you or others, it is incumbent upon you to call it for what it is; aberrance, evil or acrimony. If you ‘pass the buck’, you are shifting the responsibility or blame to another person. It reveals exactly just what you value AND how real those values are to you.

If you had something that could help you express what you value would you use that as a tool to create the fulfillment of those values? A carpenter uses a hammer to fulfill the plans laid out for them. The nails hold the wooden frames together but it takes the ‘force’ of them swinging the hammer to drive the nails into place. It takes action in a direction to ‘join’ pieces of wood in such a way in order to reveal the end result that the carpenter ‘sees’ in their mind.

The designer or architect creates from the top down; in other words, sees the final picture and creates a model of what it will look like. The model is a representation of the final product and is used to ‘guide’ the architect in creating the plans that the carpenter follows. The carpenter creates from the bottom up by following the plans and constructing the parts and raw materials into the ‘vision’ of the architect.

It is much the same for us in constructing our lives. The Divine has designed our lives by ‘seeding’ us with our Divine purposes. Are we following the divine plans or are we allowing our egos to second guess the divine plan for our lives? When the structure or results of implementing our plans reveals walls that are not level or plumb, it reveals that we went ‘off of the plan’ and second guessed the divine plan.

When we hear of atrocities in the world, due we ‘ring the bell’ and let others know? Or do we retreat into our ‘comfort zones’ or inner sanctums and acclimate ourselves to the ‘perceived’ fact that there is nothing we can do about it? Is fighting or warring the only answer? Or is seeking peace through constructive dialogue more apropos to effecting peace?

Is there a song of peace in your heart or a song of war? Are you declaring with your words, actions and behaviors something other than what you are thinking, feeling or believing? Are your ‘walls’ level and ‘plumb’ or are they off kilter? It is up to us to align ourselves with Divine order; not the other way around. It is we who ‘go against the grain’ and create problems and perceptions of struggle in order to justify our egos being in command. If we are not ‘hammering out justice’, ‘ringing the bell of freedom’ or ‘singing the song of peace and love’ among all of our brothers and sisters than we are NOT fulfilling our Divine purposes in Divine order.

We can only align ourselves with the truth when we allow the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love to guide us into complete alignment with our Divine purposes in Divine order. All else are games that our ego plays to control our lives and fulfill its selfish agenda. Focus on that which brings out those divine values and edifies all. Create a ‘structure’ in your life that follows the divine plans. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HAVE OR NOT HAVE

Who you are is a result of who you were and weren’t. What you are is a result of what you have done and have not done. Where you are is a result of where you have been and where you haven’t been. How you live is a result of how you have lived and how you haven’t lived. When you understand who you are is a result of when you looked within instead of looking without.

Why you have taken the path you have taken is a result of why you chose to take that path and why you chose not to take any other. You are a result of the choices you have made by the perceptions you have accepted as true in your life. Whether you have made a left or a right changes your perspective of your life but doesn’t change who you are in relation to the direction you have chosen.

You are a child of the Most High endowed with the ever-presence of the Divine, the all-knowing of the Divine, the all-powerful love of the Divine and the ever changing perspective of choices afforded to us to co-create beauty in our lives. Choose life and beauty and it will become abundantly available to you every moment of your life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SUPERFICIAL SPIRITUALITY

What is Superficial Spirituality? Is it saying all of the buzz words in order to convince yourself and others that you are spiritual? Or is it only being concerned with what is obvious and on the surface of reality?

Superficial Spirituality is, in essence, being shallow, not profound or thorough. It is aligning yourself with other spiritual seeking individuals for a selfish agenda. It’s more like Ego Gratification than pure spirituality. 

Some people are ‘into’ spirituality for their own selfish agendas more than to grow and expand along with others. They are mining for Fool’s Gold and perhaps will never see the difference between the external sparkle of what appears to be real and what is truly real within.

Please listen to Elizabeth May’s song, “Fool’s Gold” to see what I mean:

I AM FEARLESS

As easily as you can allow a perception to generate fear within you, you can turn it around and generate faith for a positive outcome. How do you do this? By being fearless!

When the fear strikes, turn it around into faith. Don’t let that ego voice of doubt, worry and fear keep you secure and tight in your comfort zone.

Stretch out of your comfortable box of owning your fears and convert them into faith in the Divine moving Divine order to manifest your Divine purpose.

Trust that the best will unfold and it will! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Following is my wife Elizabeth performing “I Am Fearless”.

ARE YOU MOTIVATED
OR INSPIRED?

Are you truly inspired about your life? Are you coming from a space where you jump up each day chomping at the bit to do your ‘thing’? Or are you down in the dumps and not sure of what to do? Do you lack the motivation to get up and move through your day with confidence or do you simply do what you need to do to get by? Are you excellent at what you do and do what it takes to maintain that excellence or are you mediocre in your performance and not taking the steps to educate yourself to grow and expand?

When you look at life believing that if you don’t do something and as a result something bad will happen, you are operating out of a negative space. You look outside to ‘get’ motivated and listen to what other people say, what books say and what external guidance you can ‘discover’ to take action so that negative things that you ‘fear’ won’t happen to you. Motivation moves you from negativity into learning about, practicing and living in positivity.

However, if you don’t feel worthy within to receive the bounty of positive results and experiences you will learn that all the positive affirmations, good ‘doing’ and motivating will only take you so far before you begin to doubt your goals, worry about what others think and fear what might happen to you. When you look at life knowing that if you do something and as a result something good will happen, you are operating from a positive space. You begin to look inside to ‘become’ inspired and listen to the still small voice of the Divine guiding you with the inner guidance of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that inspires you to take action so that positive things that you ‘faith’ in will happen to you.

Inspiration moves you from positivity into manifesting your Divine purpose in Divine order. You become so inspired you know that you are a child of the Most High God and you ARE worthy of receiving the bounty of Divine love. Faith builds Divine trust and fear breaks it down. Faith comes from an intimate relation of ‘knowing’ Divine love and fear comes from an intimate ‘believing’ in self as its own source. Inspiration costs nothing and motivation costs everything. Which direction are you coming from? If you journey from negativity you have your work cut out for you and if you come from positivity there is no effort at all. Just let go! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AS LONG AS WE

As long as we be, say or do…

As long as we don't know that we are perfect creations of God then we will continue to experience everything that supports that conclusion.

As long as we accept our ‘lot’ in life and not allow our growth and expansion we will never be able to move to a new lot. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
As long as we don’t make the time for communion with Divine love we not be able to experience its fullness and beauty in our lives.

As long as we resist that which we feel is not serving our edification, it will continue to present itself time and time again until we allow it to be and let it go.

As long as we selfishly believe in that which we feel is correct we will never universally know the Divine truth that we are all one, connected in spirit and spiritually immortal.

As long as we ignore our Divine purpose we will never know true peace, understand the subtle movements of Divine order, experience inner joy and live in Divine love everlasting.

As long as we put off what we know we must do we will never be able to realize the intricate timing and delicacy revealed by Divine order to actualize who and what we were created to be.

As long as we look outside for that which comes from within, we will never be able to completely trust in the Divine to bless us with the bounty of Divine love.

As long as we behave in such a way as to undermine our best interests, we will never feel the inner joy of living in whom and what we truly are.

As long as we live mostly from our heads and less from our hearts, we will continue to be flabbergasted when things don’t turn out the way we think they should.

As long as we balance what we receive with what we give, we will be in alignment with the flow of Divine order manifesting what is beneficial for all.

As long as we live our Divine purpose to the fullest, we are being truthful, forthright and validating to that which has given us in grace, Divine love.

As long as we say no to that which ‘demands’ us to say yes, we are allowing the spirit to guide our journey even though we have no clue where we are, where we are going and how we will get there.

As long as we say yes to that which ‘guides’ us to say no, we are allowing the ego to guide our journey thinking we have a clue as to where we are, where we are going and how we will get there.

As long as we judge people instead of their behaviors, we will be caught up in that which distracts us from being that which we truly are; Divine love!

As long as we hold back that which moves us forward, we are not allowing what is natural to unfold because we are deceiving ourselves with a chance for a miracle to occur.

As long as we listen to that which diminishes our spirit, we will be on a road to self-deception that we alone are steering and driving to a destination of non-fulfillment.

As long as we love that which we feel that we hate, we will be letting go of the feeling that all is not right and replacing it with that which culminates and doesn’t divide; Divine love.

As long as we hold grudges against others, we will not be free from the shackles of the ego that constrain us from sharing our spirit through Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Remembering the joy you have forgotten is as simple as looking around you, marveling at creation and smiling from ear to ear. Being grateful for life, experience and love brings joy everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Due to the recent advances in radiographic imaging, we have finally discovered the cause of conservative anger. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EQUALLY MATCHED

Equally matched doesn't make one understanding of the other. It works both ways. If you care about what happens to ALL of life you adopt a liberal philosophy of live and let live and help others achieve their desires within a community of people.

If you don't care about anyone else but you immediate friends and family, you adopt a conservative philosophy of controlling others to fulfill your individual desires. It's the choice between 'we' and 'me'.

I would rather choose 'we' because minds and hearts working together for the common good should always supersede selfish individual desires. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MULTI-LEVEL ADDICTIONS

The conclusions drawn from some of the latest nutritional science research shows that 45 calories of the 50 calories your body burns just breathing and sitting is consumed by your brain. The brain demands glucose as the fuel it burns for normal ‘awake’ non-ambulation. If the brain doesn’t get this fuel it begins to break down muscle tissue and convert it into glucose so that it can ‘maintain’ its awakened state.

Most hunger that we experience is ‘false’ hunger that is created by food addictions. Addictions to foods we ‘believe’ we need even though we don’t need them. The problem is in the ‘belief’ that we need these foods and not the fact that we actually need nutrition. When we remove the addiction to foods that harm us we begin to experience ‘true’ hunger.

True hunger is when we ‘listen’ to what our bodies need for nutrition. But how can we listen when we keep ingesting nutritional chaos? And what about the parallel of our spiritual hunger? Are we satisfying our need to know the Divine for the right reasons? Are we longing for a connection to something we believe in or in something that we know? Our spiritual awareness always comes at a price; just like our nutritional awareness is revealed by our current state of physical health and well-being.

Our current state of spirituality is revealed by how we handle and deal with ‘stresses in our lives. Do we go within to release the normal stressed imposed from daily living? Or do we expel and react to the stress by polluting our environments with negativity and frustration? Being spiritually centered means that we keep our peace amid chaos. It means that no matter what happens we don’t allow (not resist) what is happening to affect our peace, understanding, joy and experiencing Divine love.

In regard to resistance, Yeshua clearly said not to resist: “But I am saying to you, you shall not rise up against an evil person, but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him also the other” ~Yeshua (Matthew 5:39 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English). But what about James 4:7 where it says to ‘resist the devil’? (“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (King James Bible)).

In the actual translation it does NOT say to resist. It says to ‘bravely stand against’ any perception of evil (Satan). The actual translation:”Submit therefore to God and stand against Satan, and he will flee from you” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). What does that mean? By allowing God to guide your life you learn to ‘bravely stand against’ evil. If you notice, you don’t have to remove evil at all. It will FLEE from you.

Why? Because when you are in alignment with your Divine purpose in Divine order and sharing Divine love according to Divine will there is NO room for evil to flourish. As you balance your physical body with nutritional foods your senses become heightened. Why? Because you are tuning into the mechanisms of physical health and well-being.

The same occurs with your spiritual awareness when you ‘dip in the well’ of Divine consciousness everyday in deep meditation. Your inner sense of well-being is heightened when you make a daily habit of experiencing peace amid chaos. It is in your ‘choice’ to experience that which ‘edifies’ you that focuses your attention on what is good for you.

A successful concert pianist, violinist or conductor does not arrive at the compositional awareness that influences many people with beautiful music unless they consistently practice their instruments and compose EVERYDAY!!!

It is the same with daily meditation. You must practice it every day to completely reap the benefits of experiencing peace amid chaos. Your spiritual awareness and health is paralleled by how you experience physical health and well-being. As above, so below.

Are you making the choices for your physical health based on food addictions that are actually ‘resisting’ your physical health? Are you making choices for your spiritual health based on ‘belief’ addictions that are actually ‘resisting’ your spiritual health?

Discharge your erroneous beliefs and addictions that do not serve you. Embrace Divine love each and every day to maintain peace amid chaos. It is your choice and only YOU can make it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STOPPING ABUSE

Being secure in the fact that you are a beautiful spirit sometimes irritates those who don't know that. It reminds them of the fact that they are not sure of who and what they are and that the only way they can be is to envy those who do. They set up interactions to challenge you at every turn to validate their jealousy. They are looking outside for what can only be found within. Your best bet is to allow them to learn their own lessons and trip themselves up; just remember to be there to help them back up only if they were NOT abusive.

If they were abusive, absence of your presence is necessary for them to grow and expand. Cutting off abusive people is exactly what they need to grow up and learn how to deal with life. Nothing you can say or do will sink in until they have to be on their own and deal with their aberrances. If you continue to forgive them and interact with them it only teaches them that you are forgiving and that they can get away with the same behavior again and again.

Bravely stand against those who are not out for your best interests. It sends a clear message to them AND to you that you will not be treated in any way that doesn’t acknowledge your talents, skills, abilities and inherent beauty. You are worthy of the best and you always have something to offer others; it is up to you to discover exactly what that is!

You are the one who determines what you allow in your life. Choose to allow only that which allows you to grow and expand and not wither and die. Acceptance of things as they are and not attaching emotional beliefs to them defines their effect on you. Don’t allow experiences to affect you emotionally too much. If you do, you will vibrate those feelings out into the omniverse and co-create more of the same.

When you accept your Divine perfection within and act from it, you send a clear message of what you deem as acceptable to you for how others should treat you. If they choose not to treat you in the way you deem is acceptable, let them know. If they respond with more abuse, then move yourself into a space where you feel your inner beauty and others accept you as being just that. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SELECTIVE MEMORY

The facts are that we have forgotten more than we’ve remembered, not ‘done’ more than we have ‘done’ and not ‘lived’ more than we have ‘lived’. We are selective creatures who pay attention to what is important to us in the moment and discard the rest.

We focus on what we perceive we need to survive, what we need to obtain in order to thrive and what we need to do to strive for individual satisfaction. When our attention is occupied too much on ‘me’, we fail to recognize the needs of others and develop as sense of ‘we’.

In order to remember what is important, to do what needs to be done and to truly live instead of just existing, we need to move through our environment from a state of inner peace, understanding of others and their needs, joy for living and continually dwell in a state of Divine love.

What we have forgotten, what we have not done and what we haven’t lived are not as important as being in this moment sharing Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE UNKNOWN

The unknown is that which we have not come to know; not because we haven’t experienced it, but because we have chosen to allow it to make us uncomfortable, doubt our ability to know it, worry about what it will do when we aren’t looking and fear what it means to our safety and security.

The truth is that everything is known when you live from the spirit; it is only unknown when you choose to separate from the spirit and evaluate it on your own.

That which is known is omniversal to those who live from the spirit. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ONE DAY

One day we will completely know why we have lived the way we have lived. Will that be way off in the future? Perhaps tomorrow? Or even today?

Whenever it will be it can be known right now in this moment when we let go of our beliefs and seek to know what we were created to be. We are already receiving what we have asked for in the past and by seeking the answers within we have a clear channel to knowing how to serve today, tomorrow and in the future to actualize the fulfillment of our innermost dreams and desires of our hearts.

It is how we choose to live that we come to know why we are here and what we are to do in service to all of life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEWS YOU CAN USE

News you can use!!! You have been given the most precious gift of life. What you do with it is how your life will unfold.

Will it be joyous and fulfilling or frustrating and painful? All of this depends on your ability for you to know more than you believe, give more than you receive and share more than you keep.

Always do more than is necessary for others and you will keep the ball rolling for all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT YOU VALUE IN LIFE

Recognizing yourself in others is the first step to understanding what you value in life. Allowing yourself to act in a way that honors them and you is truly living from your innermost values.

Be that which edifies yourself and others and the blessings and bounty of the omniverse will grace you with the Divine values borne of Divine love.

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

TOO SIMPLE?

When will you fully experience peace, understanding, joy and Divine love?

When you give up fighting everything, allow it to be and move toward fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Do you believe that this is too simple? Perhaps that is why you aren’t where you wish to be. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LETTING GO

“When you know better, you do better.” ~Maya Angelou

I once watched Oprah interviewing Maya Angelou as she was describing being the first black conductor on the San Francisco Street Car system. She stated that she went to apply for the job and they wouldn’t give her an application. Her mother told her to go everyday and sit in the office. She went there for two weeks straight and sat in the office reading her book. Finally, the supervisor gave her the job and asked her, “Why do want this job?” She replied, “I like the uniform.” Not because she wanted to be the first black woman conductor!

Sort of like what Rosa Parks did on the bus. She inadvertently started a movement for civil rights when, in actuality, she wouldn’t give up her seat because she was too tired to stand. What brave, strong and courageous women! Maya Angelou’s mother followed her around on the street car to make sure she was OK. Her mother knew enough to let her daughter go but also knew how the world can sometimes be; that’s why she followed her to make sure she was alright.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is let go of something or someone that you love. You want to nurture them, guide them and protect them. There comes a time when you HAVE to let them go in order for them to grow on their own. It is part of how the omniverse works through nature. It is how nature works through us in order to expand our consciousness and live in Divine love everlasting. When you hold on too long you are living in fear and not trusting in the Divine to nurture, guide and protect. Learning to let go is learning to grow up in the spirit and minimize the control of your ego.

Are you letting go of your friends and children? Are you allowing them to be whom and what they are or are you trying to control their actions and teach them lessons without affording them the opportunity to grow on their own?  Love them enough to let them go but dare enough to follow their progress in becoming the best that they can be. That is a nurturing and caring love that is expressed from one who knows Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REMEMBERING 911

Remembering 911 is on almost every channel. What would you have done if your boss declared that you remain at your desk and keep working? After being assured that everything would be alright, would you sit there at your terminal and keep updating financial information? Or would you look out the window, see the smoke and say, “Wait a minute. My life is more important than your greed and I’m leaving!” You would think that common sense would dictate that both buildings would be evacuated as a ‘safety precaution’.

Erring on the side of caution is always justifiable in the face of the unknown. Yet, some remained ‘at their posts’ and eventually died for that decision. When it comes to common sense it isn’t all that common sometimes; especially with greedy financial ‘bosses’. Keeping the business running is more important to them than the lives of their workers.

May God have mercy on their souls and all that were lost on September 11, 2001. A janitor, William Rodriguez, knew exactly what happened. He heard an explosion on the 3rd floor of the North Tower. Why an explosion so low in an 110 floor building? My dear friend, Vic Sadot, wrote a song about his friend William. Following are the lists of the businesses in both towers of the World Trade Center. Tower One (North Tower) and the businesses in Tower Two (South Tower).

Please pray for the victims and their families fifteen years later and remember, sometimes things don’t always appear as they seem. Please listen to another song by Vic Sadot that details Secretaty Mineta’s testimony to the 911 Commission concerning Dick Cheney; a man that should be prosecuted for treason. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

NOT REVISIONIST HISTORY

What some perceive as judgment is a realistic appraisal of historical facts and NOT revisionist history.

If we look at where we were with rose colored glasses we will never see where we are now in the true light of reality.

Be the change that supports life and ALL the people in the world.

If one of us is diminished, then all of us are affected and need to adjust what is to what it needs to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TRUTH

See the truth.
Hear the truth.
Feel the truth.
Speak the truth.
Live in the truth.
Be the truth.

Never allow anyone to change what you know in your heart is true. No matter how they twist and turn the ‘facts’ to their benefit and favor be steadfast on what you know is the truth.

They might ‘win’ for a season but they will be known by the fruits of living in the truth or living in a lie. You can dress up a lie to make it appear as the truth to others but in the end the truth will be revealed.

Be focused. Be determined. Be diligent. Be forthright. No matter what anyone says, speaks about or does is irrelevant if it based on lies. Trust in the Divine to make the truth known in Divine order.

Be ye therefore perfect and be thankful that the Divine is there guiding and directing you to live in the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LION LIES DOWN
WITH THE LAMB

Before the lion lies down with the lamb he must be filled to the brim and not be experiencing hunger. If he is still hungry, he will wait for a wildebeest that begins giving birth to attack and eat her and her offspring. The lion knows instinctively when to attack and when to rest. When the ‘human’ wildebeests are at their weakest points is when an unscrupulous ‘human’ lion will attack because its hunger overrides any feeling of rest.

There are too many hungry ‘lions’ in this world that care more about their hunger and thirst for power than the lives of ‘wildebeests’ and their children. They attack those who are at the weakest point in order to raise their flag of victory over civility and collectivism. They herald the calling of individualism like it is an island that can stand alone without the help of anyone else.

We are all in this world together and we need each other to survive, thrive and strive for a better and more peaceful world that meets the needs of all who live here.  Feeding the beast with support for their perceptions of ‘how it is’ will not make them go away. Loving yourself and your neighbor more than listening and following their selfishness IS the way to ‘put them in their place’. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUSTING

When your back is against the wall and it appears you have nowhere to turn, there is another option that you might not have considered. What you have perceived as painting yourself into a corner can be resolved over time. The resolution might not be apparent at the moment.

However, by trusting in the Divine to move Divine order to unfold events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of yourself and others in natural order, the solution to your perceived problems will soon become readily apparent.

Faith in that which is your source supersedes ALL observations and perceptions of what appears to be happening detrimental to your growth and expansion. Hold firm to your trust in the Divine until the 11th hour, the 59th minute and the 59th second, and when the clock strikes 12 you will experience to the fullest the grace, love and order of the Divine in action.

Favorable outcomes to your growth and expansion come to those who have faith and trust in God. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ESCHATOLOGY

Religious eschatology is a load of B.S. It keeps people believing in an end time of retribution for the evil doers and ongoing peace for the righteous.

Mis-interpretations of the word are the cause of such childishness and provide solace for 'believers' more than an accurate account of the 'end-times'. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FAIR EXCHANGE

What truly is the definition of fair exchange? Is it what appears to be fair to most people or is it in actuality what is fair? Fair exchange means to give and receive reciprocally something of apparent value that is free from bias, dishonesty or injustice. It means that both parties give up something and receive something of value equivalent to each other.

When I worked at the railroad back in 1974 I was paid $5.83 per hour for 40 hours of work and time and a half for overtime. In 2013, I would be making $27.67 an hour or 4.75 times what I made in 1974. I made $233.20 a week and now and would have to make $1107.70 per week or $4430.80 per month ($53,169.60 per year) for the dollar value to be a ‘fair exchange’. The minimum wage was $2.00 an hour and I was making 2.9 times that value. I was an Electrical Inspector on the Penn Central/Amtrak RR and was considered a skilled technician.

I remember being able to pay all of my bills and save money on top of that. Yet, in today’s economy, people are not being paid on a ‘fair exchange’ formula. Following this formula, minimum wage should be $9.50 an hour. However it is $7.25 an hour which is 76% of what it should be. I applied at Comcast in 2002 and they offered me $14.00 per hour (the minimum wage was $5.15 an hour), which was a dollar below the inflation rate. I was not hired by Comcast and five years later they called me back and offered me $12.50 an hour FOR THE SAME JOB! WTH?

Do you see where large corporations are trying to screw the very people that make them huge profits? We the people, meaning the majority of middle class workers, have been getting screwed by Corporate America for too many years. The CEO’s buy multiple ‘summer’ homes, construct moats around their castles and invest their monies offshore for giant ‘tax breaks’ while the rest of us can barely make ends meet. Yet, time and again we vote representatives into Congress that defend the corporate agenda and screw the rest of us.

Don’t you think it’s about time that this stopped? Don’t you think that we should vote people into Congress that truly represent our interests and NOT that of the greedy corporate executives? On Election Day in 2014 we had another chance to fumigate Congress of the leeches, pinheads and rubber stampers that have been screwing us all along. People like John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and Ted Cruz who say what their base wants to hear and pockets checks from Corporate America for manifesting their agendas.

Eric Cantor is gone and only 36.4% of the voting electorate showed up to vote. 77% of that was middle class whites earning more than $75,000 per year! It was NOT a Republican mandate! It was the lack of Democrats and Progressives showing up and voting. Wake up people! You have the power with the flick of a lever to stop these greedy bastards in their tracks. Do it in 2016! Vote for YOU and your family and NOT the Koch Brothers! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CARRY ON

We all face challenges and it is our friends who give us the strength and support to carry on; even though we know that our Divine connection is always there.

It is in the expression of concern and love that we feel the strength to endure anything that befalls us. Friends are the lifeline to our feelings of support and understanding.

Thank all of your friends for being there when you needed them the most. Let them know just how valuable they are to you. Thank you, my friends, for being there for me. God bless you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IDEALS OF DECENT PEOPLE

Truth and justice are the ideals of decent people. Those who take advantage of others only care about themselves. Care about truth and justice; no matter who claims it!

Investigate their veracity. Challenge their claims. Don’t allow them to spread lies of deception in order to control what you think. Remove their domination of the conversation with their egotistical agendas.

Stop their blatant manipulation by revealing the truth at all costs. Decent people don’t allow evil to flourish. They stop it dead in its tracks with the banner of truth and justice. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FAIR MARKET VALUE

As for any dissertation on 'fair market value', we cannot trust greedy businessmen to regulate themselves. If you think that's a viable model, then you are fooling yourself.

Greed begets greed. Getting away with deceptions breeds further deception. Respecting the worker and supporting their healthcare is paramount to ongoing success. Take CostCo's CEO for example.

His business is growing with the 'fair market value' formula. Conditional statements based on antiquated philosophies do not contribute to the new paradigm in which we all work together for success. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REGULATE THEMSELVES?

We cannot trust greedy businessmen to regulate themselves. If anyone thinks that it is a viable model, then they are fooling themselves! Greed begets greed. Getting away with deceptions breeds further deceptions. Respecting the worker and supporting their healthcare is paramount to ongoing success. We are NOT mindless machines!

We are human machines that require respect and dignity. Take CostCo's CEO for example. His business is growing with the 'fair market value' formula. Don’t listen to the ‘Capitalists’ whining about their version of ‘fair market value’. They are selling you a ‘bill of goods’ without any viable content. Remember, only socialism balances capitalism.

Supporting the middle class worker with affordable healthcare is a necessary ingredient to progressive growth and expansion. When anyone espouses conditional statements based on antiquated philosophies, they are NOT contributing to the new paradigm in which we all work together for success.

Don’t listen to their lies. Seek the truth and what is truly ‘fair’ for all concerned! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FOLLOW DIVINE WISDOM

Just when you think you know what you need to know is when your learning is just beginning. Wisdom comes from understanding that knowledge is temporary and conditional.

Knowledge comes from understanding that information is gathered from the sensory perception of the illusion of physical reality. Information comes from creating verbal or pictorial imagery in one’s mind and feeling its significance in one’s heart.

In reality, learning is a never ending process that allows us to grow and expand when we get out of our own way. When we do, wisdom will follow because it understands why we are here and what our purpose is in being here.

Follow Divine wisdom and peace, understanding, joy and Divine love will guide your mind and heart to complete fulfillment. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT YOU KNOW IS TRUE

It is not about what you ‘believe’ is true; it’s about what you ‘know’ is true. How can you know what is true when you consistently live in chaos and derision?

Truth comes from slowing down and spending time with your inner divinity.

Removing your heart and mind from the perceived dualistic reality affords you the insight to understand the truth and act appropriately on it.

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

Each and every person is born with their own desires. It is not up to anyone else to determine what desires are appropriate or inappropriate for another individual.

THE LAW OF GRAVITY

The law of gravity is the result of the interactions of dark matter, dark energy, matter and energy.

The law of attraction works on the premise of thoughts affecting the 'soup' of dark matter and dark energy when they are 'emotionally charged'; not when they are just thoughts without feeling behind them.

Broadcasting our thoughts by the intensity of our feelings creates eddys and currents that reflect back that which we project.

The real or actual world is what projects into the illusory world or what is called the Perceived Dualistic Reality. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE MIDDLE

If what is left is right, then is what is right what’s left? Left cannot be left without right being right.

It is the middle that determines which is which and that is where we need to come together to smooth out the fringes of both left and right.

After all, if you are too far right or too far left you lose your sense of where the middle is and that is where we need to be to be able to work together for the mutual benefit of all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OWNING YOUR BLESSINGS

Hold onto that which gives you strength in your weakest moments and let go of what appears to be detrimental to your peace.

Strength comes from knowing the Divine within and weakness comes from separating yourself from that knowing.

It is always your choice to observe or disregard, accept or reject and allow or resist your perceptions as either threatening your survival or contributing to your thriving in life.

Choices come from owning your blessing of free will and knowing that by grace you can co-create the best outcome for all concerned. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RIGHT NOW

One day you will know all you need to know. Was that day yesterday; is it today; or will it be tomorrow? That day will be the day when you get out of your own way and realize that all you need to know is there for you right now deep within your being.

You cannot hear the still small voice of wisdom beckoning to you when you are caught up in the chaos of the outer world. You need to make the time for a one on one each and every day to hear the guidance that the still small voice relays. When everything else is more important than this time it will be reflected in the experiences in your life.

You will live stressed, outside of yourself and confused. You always have that connection. You must learn to rely on that connection in order to proceed wisely down your pathway in life. Don’t be fooled by the beckoning of your ego disguising itself as the truth. It can be cunning, brazen and relentless.

Know the inner sound of it by nurturing the voice of Divine stillness; which is the inner silence of knowing. Be ye therefore perfect!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DEALING WITH
OTHERS' REACTIONS

What you think of me is your business because it is how you are reacting to my expression of how things are. If your reaction is valid to you and not me, then it becomes my business to deal with your reaction. If your proaction is valid to you and me, then it becomes my business to incorporate it into my thoughts, words, actions and behaviors.

What I think of me is my business because it is based on how I am reacting to your expression of how things are. If my reaction is valid to me and not you, then it becomes your business to deal with my reaction. If my proaction is valid to me and you, then it becomes your business to incorporate it into your thoughts, words, actions and behaviors.

When we understand each other we feel the ‘connection’ between each other. We come to know that connection is real and that what we communicate with each other is meant to edify just whom and what we are. It is true that what you think of me is none of my business because it is not what I am, just as what I think about you is not what you are.

We are greater than what we think, feel and believe we are. We are what we know we are within and that is Divine love in action. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PREPARED TO HANDLE

If you plan for the inevitable, you are prepared to handle it when, and if, it comes. If you don't plan, you will be caught off balance and will have to put your energy in damage control.

Being prepared doesn't mean you have to plan for every contingency; it means that you walk the path and trust in the Divine to guide you to your destination. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIFE BEGINS TO CHANGE

When you finally realize that you have been putting your innermost dreams on the back burner in order to pay bills, maintain a perceived lifestyle or convincing yourself to stay ahead of the game to impress your friends, your life begins to change.

Perceived priorities often dictate specified actions that you ‘believe’ you MUST do; when in reality, they are things that you need to do in order to make the time to focus on, develop and master your innermost dreams.

Are you making the time for you? Or are you always making the time for others a priority because you believe that you need the security of maintaining friendships? True friends respect your need to focus on self without making unreasonable demands on your time.

True friends are secure in the fact that your friendship will pick up where it has left off when the time is right for you to interact with others again. Be a good friend to others and expect them to be good friends with you. If they cannot, then it is time to move on. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOOSENED THE SCREWS

Just when you think you have a handle on things you realize that somebody loosened the screws and the handle falls off. Was that improper planning? Or was it trust in something that you believed was secure when it wasn’t. Think about it. Do you believe that all is in its proper order or do you trust that the end result will be what is beneficial to you and all concerned?

Belief is not trust and trust is not belief. Belief is the repetition of your thoughts and the feelings behind them into an acceptance of security and trust is ‘knowing’ that you are protected and guided to what is best for you and all concerned and that you will be completely fulfilled.

Let go of belief and adopt Divine trust and watch the manifestations of your deepest desires come into fruition. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PLAYING A GAME WITH YOURSELF

If you ignore that which you have already verified in hopes that it will change to make it easier on you, you are playing a game with yourself that you will ultimately lose.

Your pathway is forged by belief and traversed by Divine trust. Be flexible and focused. What appears to be more work is sometimes the best way for you to light your path to complete fulfillment.

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

FEELING FULFILLED

Feeling fulfilled only comes when you are completely honest with yourself and others.

It is not a victory ‘over’ something, it is an integration ‘with’ something that transforms your heart and mind into living as the divine being you already are, and had learned all your life that you weren’t.

Open the door inward and revel in the Divine joy of being whom and what you were created to be; Divine love in action! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DIVINE PROVIDENCE

Did you know that 97% of the water on and in the earth is contained in the oceans of the earth? Did you know that 88% to 92% of our bodies are comprised of water? Water is the medium through which physical life is conceived and developed. If the earth was once a ball of congealed dust and rock that accreted from chunks of our hot sun, then how did we get water on the earth? The prominent theory is that it came from asteroids containing water in the form of ice frozen beneath their rocky exteriors.

In the period of the early earth, the earth was repeatedly bombarded by thousands of asteroids bringing not only water to the earth, but the necessary soup of the chemicals of life that combined in the water that melted from the asteroids. It would have had to be many asteroids to fill two-thirds of the earth’s surface with water. Asteroids brought physical life to this planet along with the medium for it to grow and expand. But, as with many things in life, it has a dark side as well.

Asteroids brought destruction as well. There is strata evidence that suggests that a layer of iridium with a layer of soot came after the earth was hit by an asteroid that killed all of the dinosaurs. Could human life have flourished with the presence of dinosaurs? Probably not. Was that divine providence or a sheer cosmic roll of the dice?

Just as humankind learned how to harness and master the wind of the firmament of air that extends to a level of 75 miles from the surface; with the densest layer only 7 miles up. We have sewn sails and forged wind mills to harness the mechanical energy of the wind despite the dust in the atmosphere bombarding our protective layer of skin.

We have designed space suits weighing 110 lbs. on the earth to protect astronauts from tiny asteroids (meteorites) and space dust from penetrating the space suit and stopping the life of the astronaut. Asteroids are the catalysts of life and death on our planet and in the entire omniverse. They are the bringers of life and death. What are they? They are the left over pieces from the formation of our solar system that moved from utter chaos to some sense of order.

The orbits of the planets in their gravity wells were all affected by asteroids that continually bombarded the planets. In a sense, they are like the perennial gadfly that never gives the horse a moment of peace. The horse continually swats the fly with its tail to alleviate the annoyance of being bitten. Just as Socrates analogized being the gadfly of society by continually answering questions with questions to stimulate thought, we can come to a knowing of life simply by observing, asking, listening and following through.

We do this by accepting things as they are, seeing how they can be and moving in a direction that benefits all. Chaos contributes to life and it brings about death so new life can flourish. It has been this way for millennia and it will continue this way ad infinitum.

Will you bring chaos or order into your life? Will you be the gadfly that won’t accept things as they are in order to take a bite out of life? Will you dodge the tail of the horse in order to feed on that which sustains your life? Or will you come to a knowing that life comes from chaos, moves toward order only to be changed by chaos again?

Observe things as they are in order to move efficiently in your life. As chaos becomes apparent, maintain the order of the spirit within and be the perfect spiritual being that you are. You are the order that comes from chaos. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR BEHAVIOR

Life is a series of events that occur as you move forwards in time. These events present situations that you must deal with in your mind and heart. These situations in turn create circumstances that you perceive as affecting your life.

Your behavior is a result of the repeated thoughts you hold as true (beliefs) and the emotions you act on to either move toward what you believe is true or move away from what you don’t believe is true to ‘feel’ fulfilled. It is an endless race towards living in a state of perceived peace in which you ‘feel’ comfortable in being ‘who’ and ‘what’ you are.

Letting go of your beliefs and stepping out of the ‘race’ everyday allows you to experience the truth in just who and what you really are; Divine love in action. Be that which radiates fulfillment to all and you will be totally fulfilled. That is the wisdom of the ages.

How do you do that? Pray for Divine guidance; meditate to listen to Divine guidance; serve yourself and others by sharing Divine love and encouraging all to be at peace with themselves and others. Be ye therefore perfect by being whom and what you are; Divine love in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GOES UP
MUST COME DOWN

According to the Law of Gravity, what goes up must come down; unless significant force overrides the effect of gravity pulling it down. The same applies to what you think, feel say and act out in life. What goes out must come in; unless you ‘override’ the effect of the Law of Attraction. In other words, what you project into your perceived environment will be reflected back to you and create reactions or proactions within you.

The Law of Attraction works on the principle of ‘like attracts like’ within a scaffolding of dark matter; matter that we cannot sense because it exists beyond the ranges of our senses. The Law of Repulsion works on the principle of ‘like repels like’ within a network of dark energy; energy that we cannot sense because it exists beyond the ranges of our senses.

The scales are tipped toward dark energy because there is more dark energy (72%) present in the omniverse than dark matter (23%). Perceived matter and energy only comprise 5% of what exists and our senses ‘feel’ their wavelengths and interpret them as reality. Despite this 3 to 1 disadvantage, life still came about over billions of years of the congealing attractive force of dark matter.

What does that say about life? It is purposeful, stubborn and innovative to survive and thrive despite the odds against it. Only with a sense of purpose, a confirmed direction and complete trust in the Divine can anyone of us co-create and manifest our destinies. Despite the odds against us, the perceptions of lack and limitation and the relentless feelings of foreboding, we, as co-creators, choose to create a life that we desire by ‘expecting’ its manifestation in Divine order.

Just as life has survived over the course of millennia, we too can survive the odds that we ‘perceive’ are against us. We too can thrive by living from the spirit within more than the ego’s perceived manipulation of its environment without. What does it take to co-create the life we desire? Making the time each and every day to go within and bathe ourselves in the presence of spirit to KNOW that we can co-create the life that we choose to live and completely trusting in the Divine to allow it to be in Divine order. The operative phrase here is “Whoever goes within regularly, will create the manifestations of their Divine purpose without”.

Divine trust is the key to co-creating a fulfilling life. Are you trusting in the Divine completely or are you believing the perceptions of the ego that say that you are not worthy, that everything is limited and that you must fight and struggle to survive? Life unfolds perfectly in Divine order when you get out of your own way and allow the Spirit of God to guide you along your perceived journey to fulfillment. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A.
