MY BELIEFS

My beliefs are just that; my beliefs. Who am I to judge what others believe is right for them? If I deny any form of love, then I have missed the point completely.

The point is for us to love one another without judging what others deem is right for them. Embrace love, no matter what form it may take. Jesus said the Sabbath was made for man, and NOT man for the Sabbath. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WORRY?

Did Christ EVER say to worry about what others say, believe, do or act out? Did he react to the challenges of the Pharisees or did he proact with wisdom? Worrying comes from being unsure about what is going to happen and allowing a perceived conclusion of loss to dominate your thoughts. This is erroneous at best since there is NO loss at all!

God supplies our abundance and whatever we perceive we ‘miss’ or ‘lose’ is simply NOT the truth. For our purpose to unfold in Divine order we must NOT worry but simply trust COMPLETELY in God! Our perceptions support what our smaller self BELIEVES we need for our survival. Our larger SELF knows what we need, want, desire and expect to happen in unfolding our Divine purpose in Divine order.

Who shall we listen to? The answer is obvious! Discharge worrying about anything since the Divine is always providing everything we need to be completely fulfilled. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU GIVING YOUR
POWER AWAY?

What does it mean to give your power away? Is it the abandonment of your sheer force of will? Or is it your inability to act in a timely fashion that convinces you that you are powerless to affect change? Perhaps it is an erroneous belief that you have embraced that denies your spiritual connection to the Divine.

If you don’t believe that the Divine supplies your abundance you will be, speak, act and do whatever it takes to reinforce that accepted belief. You are on automatic. Why? Because that belief, whether erroneous or not, gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling of security that keeps you trapped in your comfort zone.

Why should you exercise your spiritual power to create the life you have been given when it is more comfortable to retreat into the bosom of self-security? Complacency leads to mediocrity and mediocrity leads to the denial of anything beyond what you currently perceive to be true. Break out of mediocrity, security and your comfort zone by taking the steps needed to actualize your Divine purpose in Divine order.

What are those steps? Pray for guidance, listen for guidance in meditation and serve your community by outpouring your God-given talents and abilities to participate in SHARING your personal SPIRITUAL power! Operate from the authority and presence of the Divine by using your spiritual power to affect positive change that contributes to the growth and expansion of all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONFORMING

The greatest problems we ever face in living our Divine purpose in Divine order is in conforming to what our egos or others think we should be. Whether it be written in a book, lectured to us incessantly or simply allowing our ego’s internal dialogue to take the safe way out, when we conform to what we aren’t is when we have given up on our Divine purpose and have stop trusting in the Divine.

Are you at this point right now? If so, let it all go by going within and feeling Divine love emanating from the center of your being. Feel the gentle bathing of Divine Light coursing through your soul and centering your being. It is your source, where you have come from and where you will go to. There is NO separation; only a self-accepted perception of separation that is reinforced by dogma, fear and division.

We are all One in the Divine Light. Live your life from that Divine Light and everything you divinely need, want, desire and expect to happen will come to fruition in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Worry is a form of praying for what you don’t want. ~ Bhagavan Ram Dass

Trusting is a form of praying for the complete unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order through the Divine will. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Be good to yourself; trust in God more than anything and allow His blessings of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance to flow through your life. Anything else is an illusion based on a perception and belief that we are separate from God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

There is a significant difference between yourself and yourSELF. You are a Divine child and hence have the attributes of the Divine. What you claim as ‘leaving it to something else’ is a misconception on your part. You cannot leave it to something else when your very essence of SELF is within you and expresses healing through you. Peace.

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

The Four Agreements are:

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

FILTERING

Just as you filter the water to remove the particulates and impurities that are hidden in the clear liquid you must filter the negativity and obstructions that you perceive are inhibiting you from fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Your belief system is that filter; just like a water filter it has to be regularly replaced by removing the old and dirty filter and replacing it with a clean and new one. Analyzing, identifying and discharging any erroneous beliefs allow you to purge your filter and experience the fullness of love that the Divine bestows on us every moment of our lives.

Clean your channel of understanding and fulfillment of your Divine purpose every day by spending time deep in meditation in order to bathe in the beauty of Divine presence. Any and all erroneous beliefs in your ‘belief system filter’ will gradually and effectively be purged from your being, leaving you with a clear and unfettered channel to fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TRUTH IN SILENCE

Down deep inside we all know what is real and what isn’t. But do we listen to that inner voice speaking the truth to us in silence? Do we feel the stillness of the presence of the Spirit of God? Do we experience the inner vision of knowing what our Divine purpose is and what we need to do to manifest it in Divine order?

If we trust completely in the Divine to guide our thoughts, words, actions and behaviors we are living from the spiritual reality within the external reality. If our external reality doesn’t reflect the manifestation of our Divine purpose then we are more dependent on our egos for surviving than on the Spirit of God for fulfilling our dreams. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESTING ON YOUR LAURELS

Have you arrived at a place where you understand all of what’s happening around you, through you, by you and for you? If you haven’t, what are your priorities in life? Pleasing yourself by doing what others believe you should do? Or, spending the time to discover your individual Divine purpose?

If you have, are you statically ‘resting on your laurels’ instead of dynamically addressing the change occurring around you? 'Arrival' of your consciousness to a place of complete understanding is but a doorway to the awareness of constant change. Just as each individual is unique so is each and every moment of your life.

Be fruitful in each moment and experience the joy and peace from understanding the awareness of perpetual change. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE POWER TO NOT SIN

Jesus said, “Go and sin no more.” Doesn’t that imply that we have the power to NOT sin? Why would he say that if it weren’t so? We do not earn the power through righteousness; we are given it by grace.

Jesus was here to show us the gifts of the spirit and when we come to the realization that the Spirit of God is within us, then, and only then, do we operate from that wisdom and share God's love with everyone we encounter. The Spirit of God was within Christ and Christ came to show us that that same spirit is within us.

We all have our SELF and our self. Jesus showed us how to deal with self by listening to SELF! The ego is always trying to tempt the guidance of the Spirit of God within us with selfishness. Listen to your heart and the chatter in your mind will be silenced. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STRETCHING OUT OF
YOUR COMFORT ZONE

If you think that just simply turning the TV, radio or Internet off will bring you peace you are fooling yourself. What goes on in the world does ‘trickle down’ to your life when you ignore the ramifications of the agendas of those who believe they have all of answers. Contributing to your community means not just donating money but getting INVOLVED.

It means stretching out of your comfort zone and interacting with those who might not have had the advantages that you had in growing up. It means giving a part of the Spirit of God within you to edify this world in which we live. By no means are you EVER off of the hook when it comes to contributing. When you experience the peace and joy of the Divine and keep it to yourself, you are NOT bringing understanding into this world; you are hoarding it!

Step out into the world community and promote awareness and interactivity from the talents and abilities you have been blessed with from the Divine. When you bury them, sit on them or hide them, they will be taken from you and given to those who circulate them the most. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BE WHO YOU ARE AND
EXPECT THE BEST!

Be who you are and expect the best to come for all in Divine order. When we worry about what might happen or what could happen contrary to our expectation of the fulfillment of our Divine purpose and the Divine purpose of others, we are creating what we are worrying about and NOT the unfolding of it in Divine order. Let go of how the outcome will manifest and we free the manifestation to be the best for all concerned. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CREATING FAILURE

When you hope for the failure of another, you are creating the failure in yourself. When you rejoice in the calamities of another, you are creating circumstances that will be calamitous for you. Conversely, if you pray for the success of another, you are creating a mindset and heartset of success within you to manifest you Divine purpose. When you pray for the joy, peace and understanding in another, you are creating those states of being within yourself. Rejoice in the connection we all share with the Spirit of God and all else will be added unto us. Peace, joy and understanding will abound! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
