BULLSHITAMUS MAXIMUS

The inordinate and overwhelming amount of spin and agenda manifestation associated with those who hunker down and defend their beliefs even when confronted with the real truth emanating from the real facts.

This truth is verified and validated by experts in their respective fields based on monitored observations devoid of emotional attachments.

Yet, in the face of reality and repeated testing of the facts, people who express Bullshitamus Maximus passionately try to convince others of what they believe and it in fact becomes more important than the truth.

See this expression for what it is; lying by emotional proxy and not bearing accurate witness in order to fulfill its own agenda manifestation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ONE DAY IT WILL BE GONE

One day the joy you feel from the ones you love will be gone. One day you will wake up and they will no longer be there to love you. It is up to you to remember that love in your heart. Feel it often. That is all that will be left.

As long as you remember them and your love for them and their love for you they will remain alive in your heart. Cherish that love always. It is your connection to them and theirs to you.

The joy you have felt with them and them with you is eternal; as long as you remember, feel and know that love. May God bless you always. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BROADENING YOUR
PERSPECTIVE

When you choose to expect blessings from the unexpected you set yourself up to broaden your perspective on the possibilities that are ever-present. When your passion is excited these possibilities become probabilities because you learn to trust in the Divine in how they will unfold.

Your job is to act on what you see and feel at the appropriate time that Divine order presents for your opportunities to unfold perfectly. Stop believing because your beliefs will let you down and reveal their erroneous nature at the most inopportune times.

Start knowing by ‘faithing’ in what you cannot see in order to trust that the how of what you need to do will come to you at the most opportune moment. Carpe Momentum. Seize that moment and act accordingly.

Be ye therefore perfect in Divine timing by living completely in Divine order! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESPECT ONE ANOTHER

The killing will only stop when we choose to respect one another; respect our similarities and differences; and respect all of life.

Life IS a precious gift and until we treat it as such we will allow the killing to continue.

Stand up for life and forge new pathways to remove death as an option to those who don't agree with us.

Be ye therefore a giver of life more than a taker with death! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FOCUSED ON DEATH

As long as our priorities are focused on death we will reap what death offers; no growth and expansion, no peaceful coexistence and no joy of living.

Be the change we need by focusing on what is truly important! Support life and diminish death.

We can AND will do it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EXTREMISTS

Islamic extremists, like Christian extremists, are acting out of their selfish egos and using their cherry-picked holy book verses to justify their self-serving agendas.

All of the decent Muslims and Christians suffer each time their self-serving factions exercise their agenda manifestation over others. These extremists use the Quran and the Bible to excuse their aberrant behaviors.

They are using what they believe is God’s word to justify their actions. If only these extreme Muslims and Christians would come to know that Allah and Jehovah are one in the same.

And both Allah and Jehovah are the anthropomorphic representations of the one true Divine Infinite Spirit of God who is the Creator of the entire omniverse.

God is love and expresses life and NOT hate expressing death for those who don’t ‘believe’ their version of the one true God.

Be ye therefore centered in Divine love and not extreme in how you express it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROTECTING ITSELF

What is it about ego that it can easily recognize itself and then block it out from the light of truth to protect itself? What you see in others is a reflection of what is in you is true for both the ego and the spirit.

However, just because someone else has committed aberrant behaviors as a result of acting out on their beliefs, frustrations and anger doesn’t necessarily mean that you will.

Recognizing the spirit in others means that you understand that their aberrant behaviors are a result of listening to their egos more than the Spirit of God.

It means that they are ‘acting badly’ more than they are just ‘bad’. See the good in others and allow that good to come forward by being truthful and forthright. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

KEEP YOUR
EYES OPEN

The result of certain circumstances doesn't always reflect the fairness of the actions instilled.

Why? Because when you weren't looking is when misdirection, sleight of hand and cheating takes place.

Keep your eyes open, your ears attuned and feel your way to the truth. Trust in the Divine within you and within others to learn the truth.

Be ye therefore attuned in your spirit and watchful in your mind! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LET THEM GO

Trying to control your mind is like trying to stop an escaping balloon from expelling air. The thoughts pass by much too quickly for you to catch them. The true secret in controlling the thoughts in your mind is to let them pass through you without attaching any feelings to them.

Feelings are the reactive secondary impulses that come from thoughts already filtered through your belief system as being beneficial or threatening. They are slower than the evanescent thoughts and are easier to reprogram. How do you change your reactive feelings? By spending time each day in deep and fruitful meditation.

Your feelings will unwind and the thoughts that they create will bubble up to the surface of your mind for you to know whether they are accurate or erroneous. Once you know whether or not your thoughts and feelings serve your growth and expansion, you can more effectively channel them without attaching any more feelings to them.

It is your ego that incessantly tries to control, dominate and manipulate your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. When you let go and regularly spend time in deep meditation you allow your inner well-being to channel them more effectively than your ego ever will. Be ye therefore allowing and non-resistant! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Perspective! Sometimes things appear to be other than they truly are! Case in point: Are you living in fear of what 'might' happen or in faith of what 'will' happen? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you expend energy in manufacturing gobbledegook in the face of common sense it reveals just how much your ego, and NOT the Spirit of God, is in command of your life. Seek ye first the kingdom, and all else will be added! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you put forward a ground level perspective you can convince others of your supposed veracity. However, when you elevate your perspective to see over the top the truth is always revealed! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Good music 'feels' good when you’re playing it. It makes you smile and bounce. Not landing on your mark and posing for the audience like the Bebe; not lip-syncing your song because it's too cold like Bouncy (Beyonce - especially when James Taylor did his inauguration performance 'live') or some rapper spittin' out his rhymes about bitches and ho's. Music is meant to move you; for you to feel its vibe and not look at how someone is posing or what they are wearing. Get real, people! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Some have said that no matter where you go there will always be an asshole. Fret not; there is a reason for this. If there wasn't, how would all the crap get out? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Until you realize that you are perfect in Divine love you will never be real! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

RESPONDING WITH ACRIMONY

Every time you respond with acrimony toward a person who seeks love and equanimity you reveal just how much your ego is in control of your life. If it wasn't, no matter what anyone says would instill a reaction in you to lash out at them.

When you seek to develop a relationship with the Divine wonderful things happen in your life. You become a person that seeks peace; one that develops understanding with others; one that lives in the joy of living; and one that shares Divine love.

You share and you do NOT tolerate! Tolerance is of the ego. The ego still believes what it wants yet 'tolerates' what others believe because it feels it must. Don’t be tolerant. Be loving. Call it as you see it without any coloring for the frail and stupid 'feelings' of others.

Get over yourself already. Disperse with the egoic reactions before your aspersions affect your character! Be ye therefore loving and balanced! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE BAR OF
EXCELLENCE

When the bar of excellence is set so low those who believe more than know they can do something well will trip over it so much that they, and others, will believe they are blessed with talent.

Talent continually raises the bar of excellence because it is not satisfied where it is; it is ALWAYS looking to be better in order to be fulfilled. Don’t be fooled by what ‘appears’ to be true talent.

Talent comes from within and expresses itself outward by raising the bar and not repeatedly tripping over it. Be ye therefore always raising the bar! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LETTING GO

Your pathway of life and the timing of opportunities forthwith comes from what you are seeking and how well you let go of how things will unfold.

When you seek peace and not acrimony, you travel down the quiet road less traveled by most.

When you seek understanding more than posturing in your belief system, you begin to see the beauty along your path.

When you live in joy and not sorrow, you look at life in a way that appreciates your part in it more than your feelings as a result of it.

When you choose to allow Divine love to guide you, you step out of your ego demanding its needs, wants, desires and expectations into the grace that you already have and have chosen not to recognize.

Getting out of your own way requires you to stop trying to control, dominate and manipulate everything in your life. It means that you love the omniverse for what it is; you allow yourself to have faith in the process; and you trust in the Divine completely to bless you.

Until you do, you will be continually running on the wheel in motion until you run out of steam and collapse. Love, have faith and trust. This is why we are here.

Be that which has created you and not what you have created by your selfishness, shortsightedness and limited scope. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT SEEN AND NOT SENSED

There are more things not seen and not sensed in this vast omniverse than you can ever imagine.

When you deny what is unseen by validating and justifying only what is seen, you are painting a picture from your perspective inside of the box.

Until you use your imagination to leave the box and look back at what appears to be reality, you will exist only within the box and justify your existence there.

Reflections within the box are there for you to see and sense yourself, others and what appears to be reality.

Exercising your imagination allows you to see the truth of reality beyond what you believe it is. Be ye therefore imaginative! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OUT TO SEA

A former ' old friend' of mine listens regularly to the fear monger Alex Jones. When Y2K occurred, he setup a bunker in his house with loaded guns because people were going to crash into his house and rob him.

A few years later, he claimed that the Internet was going to be shut down and he was renting a boat to go out to the middle of Atlantic to get away from the US government.

Now, is this paranoia or what? This is what happens to people when they believe the fear from morons like Alex Jones.

Go within and listen to what the Divine guides you to do and stop listening to the fear mongers. If you do listen to them, you might be hunkered down in your basement or floating out in the Atlantic living in fear.

To my old friend, I say this: I sincerely wish you the best. God bless you and have a blessed year! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SELF-DEPRECATING

Truth is always skewed by personal emotions. However, when someone looks objectively at the truth they take themselves and their situation out of the equation in order to be fair.

In regard to truth, there is a process of its revelation: "There are three steps in the revelation of any truth: in the first, it is ridiculed; in the second, it is resisted; in the third, it is considered self-evident." -Schopenhauer (1788-1860).

This is like the growth of the Tea Party and the popularity of Rand Paul. Self-evident doesn't necessarily mean self-realized...more like self-deprecating!

YOU ARE PERFECT
IN GOD'S EYES

Always remember you are perfect in God's eyes; after all, the Divine created you to be perfect in Divine love.

Be that more than what you believe you are and all else will be added unto you! You are a child of the Most High God and you ARE someone! God does not create trash!

The Divine creates beauty! Be that which you TRULY are and not what others have told you that you should be. Love God as God loves you!

God bless you each and every day as you walk and talk in Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CLIMATE CHANGE?

Climate Change or Global Warming is science and NOT conjecture based on the opinions of those whose desire is to manifest their agenda and derive a profit from its implementation.

More CO2, more heat. Science revealing the truth of simple physics. Go on, keep debating what you believe over what the rest of us know.

The result? You will soon discover...hopefully NOT at the expense of the rest of us! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

 

 

 

 

A BRAVE NEW WORLD

Are we living in a brave new world? Do the chemtrails we see in the sky each and every day truly allow the toxic metals of barium and aluminum to infiltrate our water supplies and modify our weather patterns? Are we actually viewing a governmental plot to ‘control the surplus population’ as Dickens once said?

With the advent of XNA, a synthetic component similar to DNA and RNA, genetically modified organisms can be created and influence the current structure of life. It could be used to enhance life or denigrate it, depending on how it is integrated into the current life components of DNA and RNA.

The ramped up technological advancements in Artificial Intelligence, nanites and robotics demonstrate a concerted effort to gain an ‘edge’ over the control, domination and manipulation of humankind by a ruthless egomaniacal few who want to continually hold the reins. Are the side effects of fluoride in our water supplies actually killing our pineal glands and hence, our ability to ‘see’ beyond our physical realities?

These are all questions that we will eventually understand when we do the research to find out the answers. There is much speculation and conspiracy theories on these subjects and diligent research will help you separate fact from fiction. But what about the spiritual element? What about what the Divine reveals to you in deep meditation? Is that only valid for you and no one else? Or is it an inclination for you to progress in a certain direction that others simply cannot see or WILL NOT see?

Trust in what the Divine Infinite Spirit of God reveals to you in deep meditation. If what you receive contributes to the growth and expansion of all of life then it is from God; if it takes away from life, then it is not. Too simple? Perhaps; but the truth is always adorned with simplicity. It is on our complex need to dress it up with flashy accouterments that we lose the message of truth.

When you try to validate anything based on its form without evaluating its content, you are coloring the truth with your own limited version of reality. See beyond that which ‘appears’ to be the truth by knowing what the Divine is guiding you to see. Be ye therefore truthful and aware! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

WHAT GIVES?

FEELING LOVE

How do you truly know when you are experiencing love? Do you feel really good and hopeful? Do you believe that you are being favored in some way? Or do you simply feel joy and revel in an understanding that goes beyond all measure?

Love is not seeking and gaining the attention of others. It is not basking in the kudos of compliments and recognition. Love is an understanding of purpose that allows you to experience inner peace and the joy of living in it. It is truly being in the moment and knowing the Divine within. It is sharing that experience with others.

Love is the spark of creation that grows and expands all of life continually. It is not static; it dynamically allows you to ride the crest of the wave because you choose to share it with all. Put your selfish ego in its place and swim out to the wave of joy.

Take the ride of your life while balancing the guidance of the Divine with the yearnings of your ego. Balance is the key to riding the wave! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TAKEN FOR GRANTED

How many things do you take for granted each and every day? Are you thankful for each and every breath? Do you realize if you miss one breath you could die? Are you thankful for the food and water you consume?

Do you realize that if you miss too many meals you could die as well? Are you thankful that you can get around? Do you realize that if you are too sedentary that you will lose your ability to efficiently be ambulatory?

Are you thankful for the roof over your head? Do you realize that if you don’t get up and earn a living that you could lose that roof over your head?

Each and every day there are many things to be thankful for and many things to help others maintain. Be an example of gratitude, thankfulness and divine service to others. In this we come to know how blessed we all are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DESENSITIZING

When you ignore the cries for help from others you desensitize yourself from your connection to your environment.

You move away from what you need to be connected and move toward what you believe you need, want, desire and expect to happen to you.

In other words, you separate yourself from that which you are NEVER separated from in order to appease your selfishness.

Those who find a way to become more connected to themselves and others will always be blessed with healing, joy and Divine love.

Those who seek to minimize that connection will always be separated from that which they desire the most. Be that which you are and NOT what you believe that you are.

Knowing the truth that the Divine is within you right now and allowing your inner well-being to flow through you blesses everyone; even you!

Be ye therefore open to helping others find their divine healing by your sharing of Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THANK YOU, AGAIN!

I would like to thank you, all of my Facebook friends and readers, for your years of friendship and support of my writings.

You have given me more joy than you might even know. Your likes, comments and challenges have been most enlightening.

They have given me the joy of knowing that you are there and that you have heard my voice. As I read your voices to me I am so thankful that we have a relationship that spans the globe and uplifts all of us.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to serve all of you with Divine love. May God always bless each and every one of you and your families as well! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REGENERATION

With every breath you take, every drop of water or morsel of food you ingest, every step you take and every thought and feeling you experience you are regenerating the cells in your body to create the electro-chemical construct of your consciousness.

Your consciousness is a by-product of your movement in a direction from young to old, backward to forward and from ignorance to understanding. Your consciousness allows the omniverse to look back at itself and marvel at its wonder.

When you stifle this wonder you are stifling the forward progress of life. Mediocrity is what stifles the wonder and becomes the seat of complacency whereby you stagnate instead of motivate, fear instead of having faith and become depressed instead of living in Divine love.

Remember this with each and every breath you take; each and every drop of water or morsel of food; each and every step you take in a direction and each and every thought and feeling you experiences.

Be thankful for your progress and for the progress of others. It is your saving grace that allows you to live in Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STOP AND TAKE
A BREATH

The average human being takes 650,000,000 breaths over the course of their lifetimes. That’s 325,000,000 inhales and 325,000,000 exhales. With each breath we mobilize our bodies to maintain itself and we express our individual consciousness as a result.

Our breath is what keeps our bodies alive so that we can eat, exercise and reproduce. Each breath is a gift from God. Each breath is the pre-cursor to the next moment. Be thankful for each and every breath, for without them, we would cease to exist as a living soul.

The Spirit of God within our individual bodies is what makes us a unique and living soul. Trust that spirit and be thankful for each breath. Make sure that each one of those breaths count in sharing Divine love.

After all, they are there for that purpose and it is up to you to fulfill that purpose. Be ye therefore full of life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PARANOIA

I received another message from my ‘ex-friend’; you know, the one who worships and hangs on every word spewed out of the mouth of Alex Jones. The same one who built a Y2K bunker in his basement and was ready to charter a boat out into the middle of the Atlantic when the Internet was supposed to crash back in 2003.

The message read: “Even your parting shot you use negative generalizations to paint me.  You NEVER fail to fail.”

My response: You really crack me up! I wish you and your wife the best! Am I still failing? Lol!

Now, what he is referring to as negative generalizations are my reminders to him of his paranoia and choices of living in fear. When you don’t recognize or consult your spiritual center you will use fear as a crutch to justify your actions AND inactions. It becomes what you rely on in order to convince yourself it is what you need to do in order to survive. NOTHING could be further from the truth!

It is when you let go of fear that your true personal power comes into play. You cannot think, feel and move negatively while thinking, feeling and moving positively at the same time. They ARE mutually exclusive. If your pattern of behavior resulting from your thoughts and feelings is constantly focused on fear and NOT knowing, then you are NOT living in faith and knowing. It’s as simple as that.

No matter how you spin it or make excuses for your aberrant behaviors, the results that unfold come from what you focus on, your intent and your manifestation of that intent. Be focused on what is positive, good for all and uplifting. This, in itself, creates more of the same. If you truly know this, then why would you ever be negative? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING IN PEACE?

Do you truly want to live in peace? Do you believe that the only way to attain peace is with resisting, fighting or warring with those who don’t want peace? Why do you believe that way? Your natural instinct to fight, resist and go to war against something comes from your ego controlling, dominating and manipulating you with its perceived ‘power’ in order to remain in command. It does NOT want you to follow the guidance of the Spirit of God because it would then have to take a back seat with its established beliefs.

Gandhi utilized ‘passive resistance’ to win his ‘war’ with England. Passive resistance is “opposition to a government or to specific governmental laws by the use of noncooperation and other nonviolent methods, as economic boycotts and protest marches” [dictionary.com]. It is can also be described as civil disobedience to laws that constrict and violate the rights of everyone. However, the term still includes meaning of the word resistance. Instead of resisting, how about allowing?

In my article, “Active Allowance”, I propose a new method of dealing with what ‘appears’ to be against you. It is more of a proactive behavior than a reactive one. True peace never comes from war. It might exist for a period of time in the aftermath, but the anger and resistance festers until it brings war back again. Don’t believe me? Then go to the library and study history.

It is abundant with examples of human egos demanding to have what they want at all costs; even to the point of killing those who don’t agree with them. Until we all stop resisting, fighting and warring with each other we will never know true peace. “Blessed are they who make peace, for they will be called the children of God” ~Yeshua, Matthew 5:9 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

POKING HOLES

Those who poke holes in the sharing of Divine love by others cannot see the light of truth on the surface and seek to expose the source of the supposed light as being deception disguised as good. Why would they do this? Because their egos are more in control of what they observe and perceive and they are skewed by their rigid belief systems.

When the message of Divine love is felt by anyone it is perceived as contributing to the growth and expansion of everyone and NOT just a select few who capitalize off of its implementation. When the hole-pokers position themselves to derive a profit off of the inevitable implementation of progressive policies, it is readily apparent that they are poisoning the pool for their own selfish purposes.

Be aware of this and regulate their actions accordingly before they take advantage of the greater good for all. History has repeatedly demonstrated that selfishness promulgates deception in order to derive a profit from what others need at the expense of ‘others’ and NOT the hole-pokers. See things how they are and not how they are spun by those who seek to confuse and conflagrate more than clarify and extinguish.

While you were listening to their spin of the truth you were being distracted from what their minions were imposing in order to profit off of your efforts and striving for equanimity. As the saying goes, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t.” Be ye therefore watchful of those with a slick talk and shifty eyes. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PLASTIC BAG
CHALLENGE

To all of my Rep, Neo-Con and Tea Party friends, please take the plastic bag challenge.

If you get to the point where you feel like you are going to expire then breathe in the air 'liberally' to prove that you are not stupid; if not, you have proven that you are and we will know just how much.

Don't try this at home; make sure it is in public so that all can see just how 'NOT' liberal you are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

CONTRADICTION?

Since the Lord Almighty created EVERYTHING, including science, why would the facts that were created contradict the unfolding of Divine order affecting natural order? The 'blink of an eye' comment reinforces the childish anthropomorphic image of an old man on a throne imposing his will on all of us who supposedly have free will. Grow the fuck up Inhofe and be a man who accepts responsibility for the truth instead of your erroneous beliefs! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PALE BLUE DOT

It is so true that we are a pale blue dot in the grand scheme of things. Billions and billions of stars on a canvas of perceived reality that stretches beyond our capacity to even comprehend. Our awareness allows us to look back on the majesty of creation to see what has been wrought from the beginning of time.

In our childish arrogance we have created a deity who looks like us, has our weaknesses and strengths and punishes us for lack of obedience. When will we ever grow up? When we realize that what we see out there is contained within our hearts and minds.

Eternity is in the moment and when we slow down enough to feel the still presence of the moment and our inner voice of silence guiding our way, we begin to see the majesty of creation and that our limited scope of it can never encapsulate the entire expanse of the omniverse.

Be humble at the Creator’s majesty and allow that which has created you to live within your heart and mind. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OUT OF CONTROL

When your personal convictions based on your beliefs become moiré important than seeking the truth for everyone, your ego is out of control. It has elevated its needs, wants, yearnings and expectations over that of others.

It must dominate others’ perception of reality in order to manipulate the perceived outcome of its self-aggrandizing efforts. Only when you release your ego’s perceived power over others will you be free to listen to your inner guidance and truly know how to effect positive change for all.

Be that which edifies everyone more than which only edifies yourself. It is in your giving to others of your talents, skills and abilities that you share Divine love and co-create harmony.

Create many songs in the omniverse that echo harmonious tones of the expression of Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

You will never be uplifted into your destiny until you learn to uplift others. It is in your sharing of Divine love that you accelerate the anointing of the gifts of the spirit. Give to others what you desire the most and you will be fulfilled in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You cannot appreciate the light until you have stumbled in the darkness. Not knowing which way to go because of the darkness allows you to seek the light to know your way. Be thankful for where you are and move toward the light of understanding. This is the process of life as you unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Pseudo-Christians really need to get a life other than what they THINK the Bible says. They need to grow up and be thankful that some of us speak the truth despite their childishness. May God bless all of them with the truth of Divine love and not the lies of their egos! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Liz and I were sitting with her brother Roger today and she told us a story about when a lady came up to her mother when she was pushing Roger in a carriage. The lady looked at Roger and said, “My, he doesn’t look like your husband at all!” Liz’s mother responded, “The only way his looks should concern you is if he looked like your   husband.” Nuff said! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you talk down that which is right and truthful in favor of what you believe is correct not only are you hurting yourself but you are hurting others with your selfishness and sheer disregard for the truth. Believing anything without verifying and validating the truth clearly demonstrates just how self-centered you are and how your beliefs are more important than the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only when you allow Divine love to fill your heart with joy will you come to know the peace that is beyond all understanding. It is in your choice that the power of love is shared in the world. Allow it to flow to others and stop resisting what you believe is holding you back. Be the love you are and share it with everyone each and every day. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who see evil in everything see good in nothing and live in their own self imposed prison of mediocrity and loathing. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who make excuses about name calling are dodging the real issue of content by drawing attention to form. Go get a real argument that makes sense before you denigrate those who accurately point out your warped version of logic based on your erroneous beliefs. Names are a shorthand to identify the aberrant and selfish behaviors of individuals who parrot what others believe more than actually thinking for themselves. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you come to know reality you let go of erroneous beliefs in favor of the greater good for all. See with your heart and mind and you will be blessed with peace, understanding, joy and love. It's as simple as that! If these are wacky 'beliefs' then I suggest more time in introspection. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?

Have any of you noticed just how violent, ego self-serving and vapid the programming is on television? Do you realize that just because you actively choose to not watch television that you are ignoring the fact that many of our youth are? What can we do about it? Throw our hands up in the air and acclimate ourselves to ‘the way it is’? Or can we join together in spreading positivity through each other into helping others to understand whom and what they were created to be?

Violence is a choice; ego self-serving is a choice; vapidity is a choice. Just because many make these choices each and every day doesn’t mean that we have to turn our backs on it. It means that we can proact a new paradigm that instills peace, fosters mutual understanding, creates inner joy and shares Divine love everlasting. We can participate in making this world a wonderful place in which to live by stepping up to the plate and being whom and what we were created to be while helping others become whom and what they were created to be.

How do we do this? By downplaying the ongoing exposure to our youth with violence, ego self-serving and vapid behaviors. By positively instilling peace through listening to others and exposing them to their inner well being; by bringing them to a greater understanding of our shared reality through dynamic and effective education in the arts, history, philosophies and sciences; by showing them that we can live in joy by being ourselves; and by sharing Divine love with them through the active giving of our talents, skills and abilities in Divine service to others.

If we truly want peace, we must learn how to instill peace; if we truly want understanding, we must understand others; if we want to be joyous, we must choose to live in joy no matter what unfolds; if we want to share Divine love with all of creation, we must learn how to receive it and accept the grace of Divine love. Until we proactively change the world by sharing Divine love instead of rearranging its circumstances to suit our egotistical whims and yearnings, we will be subjected to the ongoing onslaught of violence, ego self-serving and utter vapidity.

It is up to us by the choices we make. We all must learn to choose wisely. Be ye therefore watchful and proactive! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HAVE VISION

If you choose not to see, hear, smell, taste or touch what is going on around you that is your right. If you choose not to have vision, listen to the truth within or feel the massive ego manipulations going on around you that is your right as well. Following this course of inaction separates your perceptions of reality from reality itself. It leads you down a path where you will be forced to take action.

We are NOT separate from each other and our environment in reality; our perceptions, guided by our beliefs, convince us that we are. We choose to be fooled by them in order to feel good about ourselves. Why not see beyond what our senses reveal by unleashing our imagination? Imagine a better world; a better life; a more fulfilling existence.

Feel the joy from living in that better world, that better life and that ongoing experience of fulfillment. Until you do, you will be a link in chain of mediocrity that you have forged each and every day of your life. Trust in the Divine to deliver fulfillment to you and everyone. Step over the line of perceived reality into reality itself.

You can do it. We can do it together. Our collective vision of ongoing peace, mutual understanding, sheer joy and sharing of Divine love will only come about when we collectively imagine its existence and work together to make it happen. Be ye therefore a co-creator of a vision that benefits us all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU LIVING
IN SPIRITUALITY?

What is an atheist? It is “a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings” [dictionary.com]. A person who accepts and believes that there is a God does not necessarily ‘know’ that there is a God.

A person that ‘knows’ God is one that allows God to be exactly what the Divine is and knows its infinite existence. In this sense, a person who allows the existence of God to be what it is, is not necessarily a ‘believer’, but a ‘knower’.

What is an agnostic? It is “a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience” [dictionary.com].

A person who claims that all that there is is limited to what we experience lives in tunnel vision. Within that tunnel they can only ‘see’ the walls of the tunnel as the scope of their reality. Because this is all that they see, they claim that this is all there is and that anything beyond the walls of their ‘tunnel’ is ‘unknowable’. Instead of at least believing, they revel in unknowing.

What is an apathetician? It is “a person who does not care or is not interested or concerned whether there is a God or not; they are indifferent or unresponsive to the existence of a deity” [dictionary.com]. A person who does not care is limited to examining the walls of their tunnel as being more important than the tunnel itself.

They cannot see the greater picture because they refuse to allow that which is beyond their comprehension to affect them emotionally enough to search for the deeper levels of reality. For example, ‘how’ to see beyond the tunnel. They accept that the tunnel exists but don’t care enough to know why it exists.

Atheists use the same techniques that believers use to convince others of their veracity. Atheists fight the existence of a Divine being that they claim does not exist while believers fight for the existence of a Divine being that they just believe exists. Their war with each other will never end because they always choose to fight and resist that which they want manifested.

What you resist persists (Carl Jung) and will continue to manifest over and over again until you allow it to be what it is. Agnostics use logic and reason as a weapon against knowing the truth within. They claim that since our existence is limited, that we can never know anything that is unlimited. They have created a self-fulfilling prophecy based on their own limited knowledge of reality.

Apatheticians separate reality from their feelings in order to convince others that they are objectively observing reality. By removing all emotions, they ‘believe’ that they are closer to the truth than anyone else who is swayed by their emotions. Most of the time this is true; but when taken to an extreme blinds the observer due to their limited scope.

A true Gnostic is one who knows from within. According to its definition, a Gnostic is one who “possesses knowledge, especially esoteric knowledge of spiritual matters” [dictionary.com]. How do we gain esoteric or spiritual knowledge? Does it come from regularly attending religious services? Does it come from regular and consistent meditation? Does it come from helping others selflessly? Or does it come from listening to the still small voice of the Divine within?

Some may argue each one of these points as ‘the’ way to spirituality and they would all be correct. Spirituality comes from a dedication to the truth of life and the ultimate respect of it. It is a manner of living ‘in the flow’ of Divine love and not participating in the theoretical battles of belief that proliferate among those who ‘believe’ or don NOT believe in God. True spirituality is the innate ability to share your inner well-being with others in Divine love.

It is not arguing over who is wrong or right, who are the chosen people and who aren’t or how one ‘gets’ to heaven. True spirituality is living in and the sharing of Divine love no matter what one encounters; period! End of discussion. May the Divine always bless your life and the lives of those whom you encounter. Be that which you are more than that which you believe you are by knowing the Divine within. Be ye therefore knowing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE GIFT IS
THE PRESENT

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God's gift, that's why we call it the present.” ~Joan Rivers. Yes, yesterday is history and now lives as a memory in the past. Yes, tomorrow is a mystery in ‘how’ it unfolds depending on what you hold true today. Yes, today is God’s gift and it is the present!. Now is all we truly have and each day is no more than a rapid succession of many ‘nows’.

If we go through our days and carry the baggage of negative interactions with us to bed without letting them go before we go to sleep, we will wake up with an inner feeling of them not being resolved. These unresolved feelings will affect our current day more than we will perhaps realize. Being angry about how people have treated us is a natural human response. Anger is the reactive feeling we humans get when we feel that we have not been treated fairly.

All of us need to learn how to discharge that anger before retiring our day or it will ‘rollover’ into the next day. Acting out on our anger goes against the laws of nature and can be referred to as ‘sin’. In Ephesians 4:26, the author clearly states, “Be angry and do not sin, and do not let the sun set on your anger” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). This verse is attributed to Paul as a ‘Prison Epistle’ (letter written while in prison). Paul wrote it about 60-62 A.D. Imagine being in prison (mostly dungeons filled with excrement and rodents). Wouldn’t you feel anger? Wouldn’t you want to act out on your anger?

Yet Paul refused to let the Sun set on his anger. Somehow he knew that if he was going to survive prison that he would have to start each day with hope and trust or the anger would eat him alive more than the sewage and pestilence. At the end of each day let go of what angers you. Discharge its deleterious effects into the omniverse. Wake up each day refreshed with the gift of a new day from God. Do you treat someone who gives you a gift with anger? Do you dismiss their gift of kindness with acrimony? Or do you graciously accept their gift and give thanks to them for receiving it?

Be grateful to God for each and every day. Be forthright in discharging your anger and not unleashing it on others in retaliation for pissing you off. Be a channel and an instrument of Divine love everlasting. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
