WITHIN YOU

The silence and stillness of the Divine are within you this moment. It is your center of peace; your key to understanding life; your feeling of inner joy and the seat of the expression of Divine love. It cannot be described in words but can be felt in your inner heart.

As Mark Twain once said, “That impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words howsoever felicitous could accomplish it.”

Indescribable, yet fully attainable; by going within. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I AM FEARLESS
BY ELIZABETH MAY

ONLY LOVE

“O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” ~Deuteronomy 5:29 (King James Bible).

I do NOT worship a God that has human characteristics, human frailties and vain glory demands for worship. Worship is a human quality of those who live in fear of reprisal from a deity that will smite them for inappropriate behaviors.

Come on people, will you continue to listen to the ramblings of shepherds from thousands of years ago about a vengeful God? Or will you GROW UP and realize that Divine love is within as Christ told us quite clearly?

I will NOT fear that which expresses only love. I will love that which IS love by being grateful for Divine grace and my received gift of life. Be ye therefore aware! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IN SPIRIT

Those who encourage others to embrace their own individuality and extend their gifts to others are in-spirit; they in-spire! Be around those who inspire, who ignite and who accomplish what is beneficial to all!

Your fulfillment in life is determined by the choices you make, the company you keep and the diligence you apply to actualizing your Divine purpose in Divine order. Each day is like a rung on a ladder.

You must take the rungs in methodical succession to get to the roof. Too many of us want to take shortcuts; you can try to jump on the roof all day long and you won’t get there until you take the right path.

Be an inspiration to others AND yourself by allowing Divine love to rule your life. Be ye therefore loving! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROSPERITY CONSCIOUSNESS

It seems that some have resentment towards what is termed ‘prosperity ministers’. Preachers who focus on living in a bounty from God and not in an attitude of lack and limitation that is supposedly ‘reality’ based. What is reality based, anyway? In television entertainment the term means “portraying or alleging to portray events as they actually happened” [dictionary.com].

Now, if reality is based on observed events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of people and the environment, then what are your inner perceptions of those experiences? Are they accurately reflecting what you observed, or are they being molded by your belief system?

Our belief systems are programmed from birth based on what pleases ourselves, others and what we ‘believe’ God wants us to do to honor life. If you have erroneous and invalid beliefs in your belief system, then you will automatically act and behave according to what you ‘believe’ is in your best interests; whether your beliefs are valid or not.

You will protect your comfort zone and defend your living in mediocrity because you feel ‘justified’ in your ‘assessment’ of reality. It is your BELIEFS that misguide you and NOT reality. Reality demonstrates CLEARLY that we live in an omniverse of abundance.

Dark energy and dark matter exist beyond what our senses can ‘feel’. They make up 95% of our omniverse. We only sense and experience 5% of what exists. Our senses are LIMITED in their ranges of ‘feeling’ energy and matter. Our perceptions are limited based on their skewing of reality; they are the result of the control, domination and manipulation of our belief systems that are ALWAYS in the self-survival mode.

Our conclusions about life will determine our attitudes and direction by what we ‘believe’ are blessings or curses. Some say that when Yeshua referred to the rich man in the NT he was glorifying being chaste and impoverished. Yeshua said, “It is easier for a camel to enter into the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:25 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

In old Jerusalem, the ‘eye of the needle’ was an archway close to the ground where the camels had to come down on all fours to have their baggage removed for inspection before the traveler entered the city. The traveler could not enter the ‘filtering’ gate until it was known what they had in their possession. Much like a metal detector does in our time. The only way the camel gets through the ‘eye of the needle’ is for its owner to remove the baggage for inspection.

It is much the same when politicians scream about tax cuts for the rich so that they can provide jobs. They want to pass the camel of lies and manipulation through to our cities by walking through the main gate WITHOUT inspection of their baggage! It is the same with religions that glorify poverty and lack. By keeping you in that consciousness, it reinforces your perceived need to support and finance them more than your own interests!

The point Yeshua was making is that a rich man has priorities of creating, maintaining and securing his financial wealth more than anything else; money is his God! Wealth is a good thing; just like prosperity and abundance! Wealth is not just money; it is an abundance or profusion of ANYTHING; a plentiful amount [dictionary.com].

Prosperity is “a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition” [dictionary.com] that comes from NOT just meeting your survival needs, but moving toward your wants, desires AND expectations of the Divine fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order! It is a resultant set of circumstances that come from an attitude of the recognition of abundance. Abundance is “an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quantity or supply” [dictionary.com] based on a deeper understanding of reality.

It is an overflowing fullness that is ‘recognized’ by one who can observe, perceive and UNDERSTAND that abundance is the NATURAL state of reality! Blessings are for those who not only observe them, but feel them, believe in them and KNOW them! Look for the blessings of abundance; feel them in your heart; believe they exist; and KNOW that they are ALWAYS there!

Those who please themselves with the blessings of God and the love of others are more than blessed; they are living in the reality of the omniverse! Be blessed by allowing Divine abundance to grace your life with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting. Be ye therefore prosperous! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Those who lie, cheat and steal might win for a season; however, they will be exposed for their aberrances and will have to live with the consequences of their actions in their hearts. It is there that they will pay the eternal price for their selfishness! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

A WASTE OF TIME?

If you ‘believe’ that spending time on Facebook is a waste of time, then you are fooling yourself. Why? Whatever you put into ANYTHING is what you get out of it. If you are content in posting the weather report on your dinner or your next bathroom visit, then that is what you will get in return. If you post your beliefs and opinions about the world, you will get a bevy of responses from praise to death threats. It is what you do with your responses from others that determine what you get out of those responses.

Do you listen to their beliefs and musings? Or do you simply click on the pictures or sayings that you like? Do you copy, paste and print out what moves you and place it on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror to remind you of what you need to do to grow and expand into manifesting your Divine purpose in Divine order? Or do you simply tell yourself that you will remember these things because you are too lazy to make the steps to remind yourself? In the computer world it is called GIGO; Garbage In, Garbage Out.

If you sow the seeds of frivolity; that is what harvest you will reap. If you sow the seeds of greatness; that is what you will reap in like manner. It’s as simple as that! Posting threads on Facebook is a way of reaching out to the like minds and hearts that are in this world who need confirmation; who need solace; who need to know that they are a priority and learn this by positive reinforcement. Give unto others that which you desire to receive and you will be eternally blessed with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SHARE YOUR BLESSINGS

Share the blessings you have received and you will experience an avalanche of Divine love that will bless you with a life replete in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting! Be ye therefore blessed! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESPONSIBILITY

Acknowledging your God given rights and empowering yourself with those rights brings the responsibility to live in those rights, make others aware of those rights and defend those rights to the oppressors of those rights for their own personal gain.

Allowing Divine love to move through you and bless your life and the lives of others comes from knowing that you have been given your Divine rights through Divine grace and letting NO ONE tear them asunder.

Be ye therefore full of grace! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE SENSATION

Virtual reality and video reality allows us to experience the ‘sensation’ of an experience from the vantage point of electronically created worlds and helmet cams. From the comfort of our homes come the adventures in life without the dangers of harm. We are truly blessed? Excitement without the risk of injury is like intimacy without the benefits of love.

Your stake in the game comes from your immersion and investment in it. Your mind and heart know the difference between what is real and what appears to be real; whereas the automatic co-creation mechanism of the omniverse doesn’t! It will co-create exactly what you FEEL is real; whether it is real or not! Don’t co-create automatically what you don’t want in your life by resisting its occurrence in your life! Do NOT feed the beast!

When you feed your fears you are telling the omniverse you want more of the same. When you accept the responsibility of your actions and allow the flow of Divine love to flow through you, you feed the Divine faith within you and trust in the Divine to guide you forward in safety and security.

Take up your stake in the game by ‘feeling’ your way through life from your inner peace, your Divine understanding, your experience of joy and your living in Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore responsible! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STOPPING EVIL IN ITS TRACKS

In the course of stopping evil in its tracks make sure that you don't do the same evil that it is expressing to stop it; for in using the same techniques in inflicting pain to another you will become the evil that you disdain.

Do what you must to expose evil but don't allow it to so consume you that you become obsessed with defeating it over revealing it.

For in seeking to win you have imbued yourself into a fight and are resisting that which you don't want; which in turn, creates more of it.

Allow evil to pass through you because it HAS to live with itself and you DON'T! Be ye therefore discerning! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DIDN'T ALLOW

What we call surprise or disappointment are our reactions to things we did not anticipate or expect because we simply didn't allow the possibility of their manifesting.

The Law of Attraction is more to me the Law of Allowance.

We allow our experiences to affect our awareness of the perceived dualistic reality. It is when we stop resisting that which we don’t want that it passes through us into oblivion.

Only when we allow our greater good to manifest are we truly living in Divine love and unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order.

It is in our choice of moving towards what we want instead of towards what we don't want that is the true power of co-creativity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT YOU FEEL YOU KNOW

Anyone who claims to know the Divine more than anyone else believes what they ‘feel’ they know, more than what they actually know. The ego constantly compares what you ‘feel’ you know with what others ‘feel’ they know in order to validate itself.

It wants to be in command and make you believe it is solely responsible for the unfolding of what is good in your life. Don’t take the bait. Check your ego at the door to inner Divine realization.

Be that which gives and shares Divine love more than what focuses on itself as being the perceived source of goodness. Listen to your heart and know the truth while validating its occurrences.

Be ye therefore ‘knowing’! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GLOBAL WARMING

Global warming presents weather extremes. The data is readily available to those who choose to seek it out.

Climate change is a NATURAL occurrence in the history of this planet.

If anyone chooses to deny that, it is their right; however, to deny that which is natural has its consequences. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EXPERIENCES

Never let anyone tell you that you have created all of your experiences. You have co-created your experiences by what you have allowed yourself to believe is true.

When others don’t believe as you do, a clash occurs based on the intensity of those beliefs. There is NO excuse for other people’s aberrant behavior; we set the stage for our participation in the interactions of others and it is our attitude, as well as theirs, that determines the outcome of our interactions.

We all make mistakes in judgment and steadfastness to beliefs that may be erroneous. It is through the positive interaction with others that we all learn from each other as to what beliefs are erroneous, or sound! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE MORON VORTEX

The recent buzz term is the ‘Polar Vortex’. What exactly is it, anyway? According to Ask.com, it is: “A polar vortex (also known as an Arctic cyclone, sub-polar cyclone, and a circumpolar whirl) is a persistent, large-scale cyclone located near either of a planet's geographical poles. On Earth, the polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and the stratosphere. They surround the polar highs and lie in the wake of the polar front. These cold-core low-pressure areas strengthen in the winter and weaken in the summer. They usually span 1,000–2,000 kilometers (620–1,240 miles) in which the air is circulating in a counter-clockwise fashion (in the northern hemisphere). As with other cyclones, their rotation is caused by the Coriolis effect.

The Arctic vortex in the Northern Hemisphere has two centres, one near Baffin Island and the other over northeast Siberia. In the southern hemisphere, it tends to be located near the edge of the Ross ice shelf near 160 west longitude. When the polar vortex is strong, the Westerlies increase in strength. When the polar cyclone is weak, the general flow pattern across mid-latitudes buckles and significant cold outbreaks occur. Ozone depletion occurs within the polar vortex, particularly over the Southern Hemisphere, which reaches a maximum in the spring.”

Now, I would like to introduce a new term associated with the incessant watching of and reliance in Faux News, CNN and MSNBC; it is called the Moron Vortex! Each network presents the ‘facts’ with its own particular skew, but should never be relied on solely as a source of information. An educated person learns to research and validate EVERYTHING that is presented as truth. You see, the closer you get to the opposite poles the more the ‘spin’ occurs. They strengthen when the facts get cold and weaken when the facts are hot items. The parallelism is amazing! Don’t fall into the Moron Vortex! ALWAYS check out and validate what ANYONE claims to be the truth; without exception! Be ye therefore non-vortexed! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PERENNIAL GADFLY

I see my job as Socrates called himself; the perennial gadfly that incessantly bites the horse’s ass and never gives him a moment of peace until his tail swats him off.

I know my purpose is in getting others to think and feel; not believe and parrot. The one message I want to relay is that knowing the Divine is more important than believing in the Divine.

If you can know this, then I have done my job and know that I am fulfilled. May God bless all of you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHECKING THE GREEDY

The ONLY thing that even attempts to keep the greedy in check are government regulations and the socialized systems in place to take care of its people who have contributed to the system and have the right to derive benefit FROM the system.

That is NOT idealism; it is a practical approach to 'minimizing' aberrances from those who are selfish and greedy. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DISTORTING REALITY

Jesus said, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." ~Matthew 5:48. Be the perfect creation you are! Trust in God COMPLETELY and you will be that perfect being that God created! God does NOT make junk!

God made you with a Divine purpose; it is up to you to fulfill that purpose by trusting in Him! When you are feeling down, go to that feeling of Divine love within you and know that you are blessed.

The Kingdom is within you and that is where Divine love resides; in your spiritual heart of hearts. God loves you; you ARE a child of the Most High! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RECOGNITION IS NOT CREATION

Because we recognize evil does not mean that we have created it!

Knowing what you don't want and removing it from your life is moving toward growth and expansion proactively.

Moving toward what you do want generates joy in your experiences no matter how they ‘appear’ to unfold. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IN POWER

Why is it when the Reps are in power that they refer to the government as ‘the current administration’ and that when the Dems are in power they refer to it as ‘the government’! Could it be that they want people to look favorably on ‘the government’ when they are in power and unfavorably when they are not in power?

Always remember that ALL the Reps and Dems are GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES and that they SERVE US!!! NOT their corporate puppet masters who pay them off to fulfill their business agendas and their stacking the deck in their favor. The GOVERNMENT is there for a specific set of purposes outlined in the Preamble to our Constitution: to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

Now, how can we establish Justice, which is based on truth, when our citizenry are repeatedly denied their rights to the truth? Too many times courts favor those who can pay for representation who utilize form and procedure to WIN more than revealing the content and substance of the TRUTH.

To insure domestic tranquility, truth and justice MUST be upheld; this is done by the stringent regulations placed on greedy and unscrupulous people who use the legal system to ‘bend’ the truth in their favor. To provide for the common defense does NOT mean that we go into the world looking for ‘wars’ to make money on and kill, injure and maim our youth. To promote the general welfare means to secure our citizenry from suffering losses based on a capitalistic agenda; again from unscrupulous insurance companies offering policies that benefit them ONLY! To secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our children means that we DON’T allow unscrupulous individuals (e.g. the Koch Brothers) to decide our societal fates.

Wikianswers.com states the following: “The preamble to the U.S constitution contains a quote - “securing the blessings of liberty”, which means that the Constitution safeguards the liberty of American citizens at all points of time. The “blessings of liberty” also means that the freedom of speech, the liberty to do what one desires, without any fear or prejudice is also applicable. Of course we are responsible for these civil liberties and should have self-limitations. For example you can be arrested if by shouting fire in a crowded theatre (where there is no fire) causes damages and injury.”

The last line demonstrates clearly what Governor Chris Christie and his cronies just did. They closed down the GWB in order to ‘punish’ their perceived enemy and inadvertently contributed to the death of a woman who need timely medical care. When you ‘abuse your power’ to inflict harm on someone else, you are guilty of misconduct. Christie firing his person responsible isn’t enough. He should step down and take responsibility for his actions. His press conference yesterday was much like the Italian cruise ship Captain who saved his own life FIRST, before insuring the safety of all of his passengers. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TOO MUCH DETAIL

When someone lies incessantly they repeatedly give too much detail. They delve their mind into recalling and expressing what they were feeling at the time more than what was actually happening.

When one gets caught in a lie in public office, they will do anything to convince others that they didn’t do it. Why would you think that ANYBODY who lives with these extreme egos would do anything else?

In fact, by turning the other way and not STOPPING what others are doing is being complicit by omission in what they are doing. Bully man yelled that heads would roll and they did.

What he didn’t realize is that it is HIS head that is rolling and his political future is OVER. Bye, Chris. Don’t let the door of truth hit you in that ever-widening ass as you leave the arena! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AVAILABLE RESOURCES

The difference between surviving and thriving depends on your recognition of your available resources.

The best way to insure that people live in survival mode is to convince them that they have limited resources, remove their abilities to be self-sufficient and cut off the social safety net that has been established to keep them surviving when things get rough.

In other words, control their minds with lies, ship their jobs overseas and cut unemployment, welfare and Social Security; the Republican platform! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONTROLLING YOURSELF

That which you deny is that which you fear will control you to the point where you cannot control yourself. Such is living in the world of self-interest and ego.

Let go of that which you fear and allow that which brings peace, understanding, joy and Divine love into your experience. How do you do this?

Release your belief in self and completely trust in the Divine to guide you into health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting.

It is your choice; it always has been and always will be. Be ye therefore trusting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AFFIRMATIONS

Breathing in and breathing out...

Affirmations are good because they create perceptions of states that you desire to experience.

The power is not in the words or the thoughts that they create, but in the feeling they produce within you.

Breathe in what you are and breathe out what you aren’t by feeling the thoughts that these affirmations create within you. Be ye therefore perfect!

I am healthy (breathing in)

I am releasing all stress, discomfort and disease (breathing out)

I am wealthy (breathing in)

I am releasing all thoughts and feelings of insufficiency and poverty in my life (breathing out)

I am prosperous (breathing in)

I am releasing all my perceptions of untimely and unfulfilling events (breathing out)

DON'T BLAME YOURSELF

When something occurs that you didn’t expect to happen don’t blame yourself for not being perceptive enough to have foreseen it. What has happened is what you are experiencing right now in order to move ahead tomorrow. Don’t second guess what a happened today in favor of protecting your ego and how it ‘looks’ to others.

In order for you to be on the path to self-awareness it means leaving behind what others have accepted as to ‘how it is’ and carving a new path based on Divine guidance. Don’t expect anyone else to love you because you love them; expect that how you are sharing Divine love is DOING what is best for yourself and others, unequivocally.

Along the path your needs will be met, your wants will become clearer; your desires will be fulfilled and your expectations of living in Divine love will be met. Be ye therefore expectant (of living in Divine love everlasting). ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MOVING TOWARD

Moving toward that which you KNOW you need to do has to be in concert with moving away from that which you KNOW you need NOT do.

It is in the balancing of extremes that we learn to be still in our hearts with Divine peace. We understand whom and what we are and whom and what others are.

We come to know joy everlasting because we KNOW we are living in Divine love everlasting.

Walk your inner path of allowance while minimizing your ego’s resistance to that which it perceives is worthwhile. Be ye therefore bi-transitional! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALIGNED

When you begin to see life as the result of knowing the blessings that are within and sharing them with others, your life moves out of being and experiencing that which is not aligned with those blessings and into inner peace, Divine understanding, eternal joy and living in Divine love. Be ye therefore aligned! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE QUANDARY OF DUALISM

Wayne Dyer once said that being special implies that something else isn't special. That's the quandary of dualism.

The Absolute divides into opposite polarities that create shades of grey in between that we discern as varying degrees of extremes.

The different dimensions or levels of the multiverse are not observable by consciousness because they exist 'outside' of our sensory perceptions.

What we sense we perceive and what we perceive we believe. The window to consciousness is through our 5 physical/emotional senses, our psychic (mental) 6th sense and our spiritual 7th sense. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO'S IN CONTROL?

Are you allowing the Spirit of God to guide your life? Or are you making it look like it is to cover up your ego’s clandestine agenda? How do you know for sure? Are you deluding yourself? Or are you simply allowing things to fall where they may and turning it around to appear that it is what you wanted anyway? The first clue to who’s in control is in misguided expectation.

Do you expect people to be grateful to you for anything that you do for them? Are you truly giving to others to ‘help’ them or are you giving to them to receive thanks for your expressing Divine service?

Prayer is talking to God, meditation is listening to God and service is taking the guidance you have been given and sharing Divine love with those in need. It is about you integrating your independency into interdependency. We are all connected!

The second clue is in your actual focus. Are you doing things just for your own benefit? Or are you doing things for the benefit of all? Do you always steer conversations back to you or do you validate what others are doing as well? Too much focus on you and not others reveals your level of selfishness.

The third clue is in sharing Divine love with others. Are you doing it to be recognized by others? Are you praying in public for the admiration of humankind in your spirituality? Or are you praying in private and giving anonymously to be a part of the greater good?

The fourth clue is that when something detrimental happens you are quick to place the blame on something outside of yourself instead of examining your participation in it. You live from your perceptions rather than your spirit and make excuses to support your obvious self-centered choices.

Accepting responsibility is the hallmark of living in spiritual guidance. The last clue is in your level of self-importance. Do you see yourself as the answer to all that is perceived as good? Are you more concerned about ‘me’ than ‘we’? Or are you making it look like you care for others when in fact you are elevating your own self-interests through an ‘appearance’ of caring service to others?

When the needs of the many are more important to you than the needs of self, you are allowing the Spirit of God to guide you more than your ego. Each clue occurs independently but aggregates interdependently. Adopting the guidance of the ego creates veils of confusion and justification for how you believe you are integrating whom and what you are into the world around you.

Self delusion is the ego’s greatest weapon of mass deception (a new WMD). Lose yourself in the whole enough to positively contribute to the mutual growth and expansion for all without losing your sense of how valuable and loved you are for being a part of that whole. Be ye therefore guided by the Spirit of God! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FALLING VICTIM

"Every day we keep falling victims to our own selfish and unrealistic expectations thinking it people's cruelty we're falling victim to.

Truth is, people's cruelty only set the stage and always will.

We're therefore blaming and grudging on other for our mistakes." ~Ubong Hillary

ENJOYING LIFE

What is it to enjoy your life? Is it just a feeling of happiness that you ‘get’ after something pleasing has occurred in your life? Or is it a state of reflection of the creation of something that is truly beneficial to everyone?

The word ‘enjoy’ means ‘to make and give happiness’. You co-create happiness from within and you share it without. You give it to others every moment of your day! It is a sharing of confidence in a feeling that allows you to know that you, and others, are always blessed.

That is how you enjoy life. That is how you share Divine love. That is why we all are here. Be ye therefore living in complete and utter joy each and every day of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BACKING THE WRONG PONY!

It is impossible to feel the joy of living in your desires and feeling the sorrow of not being whom and what you KNOW you are at the same time.

If you feel the sorrow more than the joy, then find that place within that allows you to feel the joy you know that is yours. If you remain in the sorrow you will be co-creating more of what you don’t want in your life.

You will be resisting that which you ‘believe’ is hindering you and telling the omniverse you want more of the same.

Feel the joy of living in what you divinely desire and the veils of darkness will fall quickly for you to be aware of your ongoing existence in perpetual well-being.

Joy brings more of the same; just as sorrow brings what it affects. Be ye therefore joyful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOVING WHAT YOU HATE

Loving that which you hate frees you from the illusion that you can control, dominate or manipulate that which you ‘believe’ you can.

Allow love to be your North Star and navigate the seas of derision with the confidence in knowing that love is ALWAYS your guide!

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

RISING ABOVE

What you hate negates. What you love, allows you to rise above. Rising above gives you the greater perspective of why you exist, what you feel and whom and what you truly are.

You are NOT your emotions. Your emotions are a by-product of how you experience yourself.

Your choice of hating over loving reveals just how much you truly love yourself, others and the Divine.

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

TOO LITERAL

Those who insist on being too literal are setting the stage for their ego to ‘come to the rescue’ and solve a ‘perceived’ problem. Challenging questions are always good, but when they are inserted into the mix of a discussion that is leading to a shared and understood conclusion, they are more of a distraction than a defining question.

Picking apart something for the sake of doing it instead of for the sake of clarification is the ego dissecting it in order to create confusion. Where there is confusion, then the ego steps forward to provide its view of clarification and NOT what might be needed to reach an ultimate understanding of the discussion at hand.

Beware of object dissectors that tear things apart to create confusion instead of clarification. It is their egos that are ultimately at play and not the desire to support understanding; just to put their viewpoint forward based on their limited and skewed understanding. Be ye therefore aware of literalisms. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ENTHUSIASM

Enthusiasm comes from 'entheos'; inspired by the Divine!

If you have difficulty in listening to the still small voice of the Divine, then follow this: "The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind" ~Khalil Gibran.

It is then up to you to step across the threshold into eternity! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FILL IN THE BLANKS

The senses reveal that which is; it is our brains that 'fill in the blanks' to create our perceptions of reality.

What we actually 'see' is a copy of reality as skewed by the perceptions in our brains. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

External experiences have a way of reframing the most convicted ideologies. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Friends are those who are there for you like you are there for them. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Animals are not with us for our entertainment, our hunger or our feelings of superiority; they are here to teach us love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Ego has its purpose and its place in your life. As long as you balance the needs of the many with your own needs, your ego will fulfill an integrative agenda more than a selfish one. Allow the Spirit of God to guide your ego to ALLOW complete and utter fulfillment! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is our feelings that cause the manifestation of our thoughts. If we all FEEL the joy of equality, respect and mutual dignity, we will continue to experience it in our lives! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The source of evil in the world is in our believing that we are separate from the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only ego-maniacal liars negate what they are. That's how they maintain plausible deniability. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Your living in the flow of Divine love is predicated by your ability to share it with others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you allow that which you hate to control you, then your negative reaction to it gives it the control over you. If you can't see that, then it is time for you to feel it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Within every negative there is a positive; it depends on which background you focus your imagination upon! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
