KNOWING WHAT PEOPLE WANT

Every day we hear from the minority of representatives in our Congress about de-funding the ACA as being “what the American people want.” What American people? Who are these people who would blatantly turn down mandated access to health care based on no consideration of pre-existing conditions? Who in their right mind would say no to what could save their lives? Well, it’s all about who has ‘skin in the game’ (attributed to Warren Buffett). What does this mean? It means that you have an interest in the outcome of the game because you have invested something of your own into it. What have our representatives ‘invested’ in the game of the outcome of the ACA? Absolutely nothing because they HAVE affordable government healthcare for LIFE!!! The only ‘investment’ that they have made is in allowing corporations cutting their checks and investing in buying their votes. They fear monger and lie to the public in order to manifest the agendas of the corporate puppet masters so that THEY CAN CONTINUE TO MAKE HUGE PROFITS off of our collective infirmities.

The veil of corporate agendas is prevalent because our society glorifies the ego yearnings for capital gains and the acquisition of power and ‘things’ that we ‘believe’ will make us ‘happy’. This is the Grand Illusion and as long as the majority of people believe this illusion, the unscrupulous corporate agendas will be funded to their own ends. Perhaps when the IRS Code is changed to follow the LAW made by Congress in 1959 that states that 501c4’s have to ‘exclusively’ contribute to ‘social welfare’ and not ‘primarily’, will we be back on track. As the contributors to 501c4’s did NOT have to reveal their identities, the floodgates were opened by the Citizen’s United allowance by the SCOTUS for outside monies to influence our elections. Whereas, the IRS Code 527 Title 26 clearly states that all contributors MUST be revealed. Closing this loophole will be like ‘defunding’ outside influences from controlling our elections. Some representatives cry that we should defund the ACA, and that is tantamount to treason. It IS the law of the land; voted BY the majority and made into LAW. Defunding the LAW is violating it and these representatives should be taken to task for treason.

Some people say that all of this is too confusing and that there is nothing we can do about it anyway. Well, please say that for yourself in your sinking dingy while you are watching the water come in through the bottom of your boat. As for the rest of us, the MAJORITY, we will support the ACA and finally allow those who could not have equal access to healthcare to embrace hope and change. Don’t listen to the nay-sayers who base their position on what ‘the American people say’, which in fact means, ‘what corporate America says’. Discern the truth and don’t be fooled by those who have boatloads of money and power to influence those ‘less discerning’ than you. Defund the corporate powers that influence the people who vote in this country and NOT the ACA. The former is what makes us free and the latter is what denies our freedom. You choose; but make sure you choose based on the facts and NOT the corporate SPIN of the facts. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STEPWISE PROGRESSION

In the event that today you decide to wake up and be yourself, take heart and be progressively stepwise. In statistics, “stepwise regression includes regression models in which the choice of predictive variables is carried out by an automatic procedure” [Wikipedia.com]. Let’s flip this around and see what a ‘stepwise progression’ would be. Accordingly, it would be ‘progressive’ models in which the choice of predictive variables is NOT carried out by an automatic procedure or where the choice of constants is carried out by an automatic procedure. Which is more likely to be a stepwise progression?

According to stepwise regression, there are 3 main approaches to analysis:

“Forward selection, which involves starting with no variables in the model, testing the addition of each variable using a chosen model comparison criterion, adding the variable (if any) that improves the model the most, and repeating this process until none improves the model. Backward elimination, which involves starting with all candidate variables, testing the deletion of each variable using a chosen model comparison criterion, deleting the variable (if any) that improves the model the most by being deleted, and repeating this process until no further improvement is possible. Bidirectional elimination, a combination of the above, testing at each step for variables to be included or excluded” [Wikipedia.com].

In forward selection, we simply add variables and test them against our model, or baseline of where we are right now. For example, signing up for a course to be certified in something that interests you. Will that ‘add to’ your life and improve it? Will it make you a better person? Whether you benefitted from the course or not in your mind and heart you have ‘expanded’ out of your comfort zone and have improved your condition. In backward elimination, you start where you are and you remove habits and conditions that you already experience and see what improves your life. For example, have you stopped yelling at your loved ones or being grumpy most of the time? In bidirectional elimination, we combine moving toward what we desire actively eliminating what doesn’t work and keeping what does work by eliminating (or moving away from) the variables in our lives that don’t serve us, add to our feelings of fulfillment and edify our overall beings.

According to the model of stepwise regression, the true opposite of it would be where the choice of constants is carried out by an automatic procedure. What constants would that be? Are there actually things in our lives that are constants? Most definitely! The one and only constant is the Spirit of God within all of us. That is our ongoing constant and it automatically shares Divine love with us in every breath we take and every breath we give. We are blessed with a center that provides individual growth and expansion when we ‘recognize’ its existence, live from its Divine love and share that Divine love with all! Operating from this center we automatically delete what doesn’t serve our growth and expansion when we ‘add to’ or ‘take away from’ our thoughts, feelings, words, actions and behaviors.

Being progressively stepwise in essence means that we completely trust in the Spirit of God to automatically hit our delete buttons when events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of ourselves and others are not favorable to our growth and expansion into complete fulfillment of our Divine purposes in Divine order. We operate from the constant of the Spirit of God by having faith in the process of growth and expansion, having complete trust in the Divine Infinite Spirit and living our lives sharing Divine love with all of life. Be progressive. Be forthright. Be diligent. Be whom and what you were created to be by centering yourself in Divine love and living your life by sharing it every day. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FEELING COMPLETE

Whatever it is you know you need to do to feel complete go and do it before you convince yourself that you can’t.

The longer you belabor moving forward the further you leave your dreams behind. Take action on what you aspire to and watch the omniversal wheels go into motion and bring it about.

Life is about being who you are; not in becoming who you aren’t. Move away from what distracts you and move toward what inspires you. Do it NOW! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WE THE PEOPLE

The most powerful thing about our government are the first words of the U.S. Constitution; We the People! As the first paragraph reads, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Now, in their time, ‘We the People’ meant: ‘We the White Male Land owners who own human beings as slaves and who regard women as chattel and the natives as heathens’. In our modern day we have come a long way for ‘We the People’ to mean, ‘We, all genders, all religions, all beliefs, all races, all creeds and all people who live as citizens of this country’. Yet, even though we have made progress, there are still some who want us to regress into what our ‘forefathers’ had written DURING THEIR TIME.

Any constitution is not a static document but a dynamic one; one that needs to be interpreted by the spirit of the law and NOT the letter of the law. The Constitution of the U.S. sets a goal for this immediately in the first sentence; “in order to form a more perfect union’. Not, in order to abuse and separate others into camps of beliefs and practices that divide us. Not to treat women as property or human beings as slaves. Not to treat ANYONE that is different from us in any other way than being equal to us! We do this by establishing justice through investigating the truth and deciding what is right and wrong; by maintaining a state of peace within our country DESPITE our differences; by providing for our common defense against any other country that wants to invade our homeland.

The opening paragraph states that we should PROMOTE the general welfare of our citizens and NOT deny their right to the truth, which is one of the blessings of LIBERTY! Not just for ourselves, but for our posterity! This document ordained and established the theme for our 200 year plus existence. We have fought and died to maintain our liberty but not just at the cost of human life, but at the cost of the truth; which is one of the blessings of LIBERTY! We have a right to the truth and not the spin of what politicians and government officials hand down because special interests are lining their pockets with perks and overrides for their obedience and agenda manifestation.

It is time the WE THE PEOPLE take back what is ours and elect only individuals who are out to represent US and NOT special financial interests who only care about making a profit for themselves at the expense of the rest of us. Always remember those three words that are the biggest and most predominant words in the U.S. Constitution; We the People. Our lives are a direct result of how we work together to form a more perfect union. Let’s ALL work together. Not just the USA, but the entire world! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

Just who do you think you are, anyway? Do you think that you are your body? Do you think that you are what you feel in your heart? Do you think that you are your mind? Or do you think that you are your spirit?

Well, it turns out that these are all aspects of whom and what you are that exist simultaneously with each breath. Your body is a denser form of energy known as matter. Your feelings and thoughts are the expressed energy of electro-chemical interactions known as ‘consciousness’.

Your spirit is the source from which all of the energy and matter within your being comes from and returns to. You are an amalgam of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects that combine to make you a unique and individual soul.

You are greater than you perhaps realize because every cell in your body, every feeling in your heart, every thought in your mind and every knowing in your spirit is geared for you to survive, thrive and strive to create Divine love.

Be the great child of the Most High that you are and live every day in Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE GREATER GOOD FOR ALL

What can we do right now to better the perceptions of our current situations? We could immerse ourselves in positive platitudes to convince us that things will get better. The only problem with this is that it is akin to putting perfume on garbage. When the smell of the perfume recedes the original stink of the garbage becomes prevalent again. We could break up our patterns and not think about our current situation that much by distracting ourselves from the causes of our perceptions. However, that is not dealing with the situation in an adult fashion; it is simply prolonging and masking the inevitable results. We could throw our arms up in the air and simply resolve ourselves to the way we perceive it is, take our lumps and roll up into a self-made cocoon of our mediocrity known as our ‘comfort zone’.

We do have another choice. Why don’t we make this choice? Is it because it seems too easy? Is it because our egos can’t relent to any other way of handling life? Or is it that we are too afraid to let go of our perceived control over our lives? Whichever it may be, we have another option that handles every situation in life perfectly. When we let go of our perceived control over our lives we gain extreme power to allow it to unfold perfectly in Divine order. But how can this be? Shouldn’t we have to control something in order for it to go in the direction we desire? The omniverse unfolds perfectly on its own without our help or interference. However, we affect what goes on in the omniverse by our ‘observation’ of it simply by observing it.

Our perception of what we observe actually affects the unfolding of the omniverse. If we insist upon controlling, dominating and manipulating our environments with our ’will’, we will be resisting our alignment with Divine order. If we simply let go of what we perceive we can control and ultimately can’t control, we align ourselves with the natural order of the omniverse. The secret of fulfillment is in the act of removing your ego’s perception that it can move natural order to its benefit alone. Only when you allow the flow of the omniverse to affect everyone with what is best for them and you, will you begin to align yourself with Divine order perfectly.

Ultimately, Divine order affects natural order by moving the perceptions of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of yourself and others into alignment with the greater good for all. By allowing what is best for everyone to unfold naturally in Divine order WITHOUT our interference, we continually allow Divine order to manifest our Divine purposes in Divine order perfectly. Let go and let God. Too simple? Then keep doing what you are doing and what you don’t want to happen will. It’s that simple. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE

Fighting fire with fire is only apropos when the fire is encroaching on you. When it is far away we must rely on the observations of others in order to carve a course of action.

Before any severe action is taken we MUST ascertain the truth before attempting to end atrocities. Anyone that harms children to draw us into a conflict is out to bring us down in a major way.

We must be strong, resolute and understand exactly who has perpetrated these atrocities before we take action.

Rushing in to mete out justice without all of the facts is tantamount to facilitating our own destruction by our own hands! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MAKING TIME FOR YOU

Have you made the time for you lately? Have you been so busy helping others that you have forgotten to help yourself?

The most important thing you can do to help yourself is have a regular daily date with the Divine.

Move away from the distractions, the chaos and the derision every day and enter your inner sanctum where you are bathed in the spirit of all of life.

Deep within your being is an inner place where silence, stillness and spirit reside.

Go to this place each and every day to help you maintain peace, understanding, joy and experience Divine love. See you on the inside! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WE ARE DYNAMIC BEINGS

One thing we need to learn about ourselves is that we are dynamic beings. We aren’t always happy and we aren’t always sad. We aren’t always energetic and we aren’t always tired. We aren’t always giving and we aren’t always taking.

We are an amalgam of opposites being expressed into the perceived dualistic reality that reflect back to our senses as being real. We are immersed in the illusion of this PDR and react to how it makes us ‘feel’ in order to survive, thrive and strive for understanding.

Every day is not an ‘up’ day or a ‘down’ day. It is simply a day that we react to and proact from based on how we feel. We are dynamos expressing how we feel at each and every moment.

Express your heart by sharing Divine love and no matter how you feel you will experience the joy of inner divinity! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RISING ABOVE THE DIN

In our brains are chemicals that interact during specific operations of thought processes. For example, when we concentrate our prefrontal cortex reveals and elevated level of electro-chemical interactions. “This brain region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making, and moderating social behavior. The basic activity of this brain region is considered to be orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals [Wikipedia.com].

When we become distracted from our goals and desires, our parietal lobe experiences an elevated level of electro-chemical interactions. “The parietal lobe integrates sensory information from different modalities, particularly determining spatial sense and navigation. This enables regions of the parietal cortex to map objects perceived visually into body coordinate positions. Several portions of the parietal lobe are important in language processing” [Wikipedia.com].

It seems that our brains can experience the joy of our goals and desires until we become distracted by our sensory inputs and language interpretation. This clearly indicates that if we are to align with our goals and desires we must limit the sensory input that activates our parietal lobe that ‘distracts’ us from experiencing our desires. When we regularly meditate, we naturally limit sensory input to the parietal lobe and allow our brains to experience the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love within.

There are certain practices that afford us the ability to allow our own bodies to create the chemical interactions that affect our entire beings. One of those practices is meditation. Meditation takes the focus off of the outer world and places it on the inner world. Entering the inner world creates feelings of peace, understanding, joy and the experience of Divine love. During the time allotted to meditation we experience peace instead of chaos, understanding instead of derision, joy instead of acrimony and Divine love instead of fear. In essence, we are practicing what we need to do in order to ‘rise above the din’ of the outer world!

During meditation our Lateral prefrontal cortex begins to override the Medial prefrontal cortex, or the ‘Me Center’ of our brains. We naturally ease out of the ‘me’ and integrate into the ‘we’. Making the time everyday to become peaceful, centered and allowing is ultimately what keeps us more focused and less distracted. Allow the integration of ‘we’ and the lessening of ‘me’ to bring you into peace every day. We will all be better off for it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FEELING THE BREEZE

Just when you think you are out of options and there is no hope for a solution is when the door to your problem closes and you can feel the breeze of joy from your window of opportunity.

Every experience in life has a reason when you understand what that reason is in the grand scheme of all existence. Remember, it isn’t all about you but it is about what you do with what you have.

Are you giving of yourself to others? Or are you holding back out of fear of being hurt? Nothing will happen for the benefit of all until you let go of your perceived control over your circumstances.

Stop trying to change what you have already created in the past and strive to construct what you desire in the future right now. After all, that’s all we have is right now. Make it matter for you and everyone. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE EMBODIMENT

You are the embodiment of all that is good, kind and life giving. Stop seeing yourself as anything other than this and you will feel Divine love everlasting.

When Divine love moves through you  healing takes place, awakening blossoms and you know just whom and what you were created to be.

Allow you to be what you are and not what you perceive yourself to be; for in this allowance is the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that you seek. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FORGIVE YOURSELF

The only forgiveness you should ever seek is to forgive yourself for not trusting completely in the Divine.

Until you forgive yourself for lack of trust, your faith is not pure and you are fooling yourself about your real motives and true intentions.

To forgive means to let go of what you perceive is harming you or another and trusting in God to completely heal your life.

Anything else is a veil of illusion designed to elevate your ego. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

JUST A MAN WITH VISION

Some have referred to Martin Luther King, Jr. as a wise man, but FAR from being a saint. He was not a saint, just a man. A man who spoke beyond economic and human equality and demanded social equality based on "all men (people) are created equal"; not all white male landowners who owned slaves and treated women as chattel.

He was a man with faults and problems just like you and me, yet he rose above them to lead us all into an understanding that until all of us have equal justice under our laws, that we are NOT equal. He fought for what he believed because he was inspired by Christ.

As we allow the Christ Consciousness to prevail within us, we are coming into the awareness and resolve the MLK experienced. Be ye therefore perfect!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE IMPORTANT

Any addiction, infliction or infirmity has its effect in many ways we don't even realize.

However, if we make decisions that affect our health, well being and appearance it reveals something about our values.

It shows just how much ego is more important than spirit. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DARKNESS DESCENDS

When darkness descends and diminishes your light know that the truth, no matter what others may say or do, will be known. Live by the truth, from the truth and in the truth. Others may call you a liar, but you know the truth. Others may say things about you that you know is not the truth. It doesn’t matter what they say.

What matters is the truth. The truth does set you free because it IS the guiding light amid the darkness. It is the beacon of light you must follow. It is the Divine letting you know that no matter what others may say that you are living in Divine truth.

Know that and be that; for in the end that is what ultimately will set you free and the pain of being accused of false witness will fade away. The Divine will always reveal the truth when the time is right. Trust in that, no matter what! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO US

If you only knew how much all of you mean to Liz and me. You light up our lives with friendship, support and Divine love. We are so blessed to know all of you. Please pray for us now.

We are under attack from those who will do anything to harm us. We live in the truth and from the truth and we are being accused of being something that we are not.

We know who we are and we know who all of you are. You are the friends who have shown us Divine love for many years now and we are so thankful for it.

We trust completely in the Divine to manifest what is best for all. Thank you for your prayers and love. We would not be able to get through this without it. God bless all of you. ~Dean

THE UNITED STATES OF AMEREGO

“We the people” actually means ‘we’, NOT ‘me’! In a previous treatise I stated the following: “Now, in their time (the Constitutional forefathers), ‘We the People’ meant: ‘We the White Male Land owners who own human beings as slaves and who regard women as chattel and the natives as heathens’.” The fact is that this country was established with an ‘understanding’ of a permanent under culture of women, African-Americans and Native Americans.

The attitude, fostered by some ‘religious’ piety, was that white male landowners were ‘better’ than the rest of civilization because of their successful ‘conquests’ in obtaining the land in this country. Again, the real permanent undercurrent in the human condition is the pre-programmed thought pattern of ‘fighting’ and ‘overcoming’, and that in doing so you are justified in enjoying the spoils of conquest.

Now, isn’t that borne of the ego? In essence, this was the forging of the ‘Amerego’ that so many yearn now to again embrace. Don’t be fooled by their ‘loyalty’ to the forefathers! What they are fostering is HATE based on the demands of their twisted egos. Women, African-Americans, Native Americans and ALL other immigrants from all over the world come to this country for the ‘opportunity’ to grow and expand and INTEGRATE! We have started as separatists and now have learned more and more over our 200 year history to become ‘integrators’ and work together.

The food and clothing that were enjoyed early in our history by the white male landowners were off of the backs and sweat of many African-Americans. The cross-continental railroads that we used to expand our nation were off of the backs and sweat of Chinese-Americans. The food and clothing we now enjoy are off of the backs and sweat of Mexican-Americans. All of these immigrants worked hard to get ahead and should be given the respect that is due them for their dedication and commitment to becoming better; better than what they could become if they remained in their homeland. Their immigrant spirit is what makes this country great.

They are not different than any one of us; they ARE us! Radical Right Wing and Left Wing groups continually try to ‘separate’ us and claim their own right to the ‘Amerego’, when in fact, we are more ‘middle-of-the-road’ than anything else. And why is this? Because many immigrants have had to go through so much to even get to this country that they only want to ‘participate’ in its growth and expansion. The antithesis of the ‘Amerego’ is the purity and promise of the ‘Immigrant Spirit’.

The desire to make a better life and participate with ALL cultures in bringing about peace and harmony into an integrated society based on peace and advancement. Sounds like the Kingdom of God to me! Dismiss the ‘Amerego’ and make this country the ‘United States of Amerigants’; a place where equality and equal opportunity sets the tone for peace on Earth. We can do it when we follow the knowing of spirit and dismiss the beliefs of humankind. Be ye therefore perfect! ~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.

KNOW SOMETHING?

Do you know something I don’t? Do I know something you don’t? Or should we say, do we know something together that can benefit us all? Then why aren’t we going about our Father’s business? Does it seem like a great idea? Or is it too involved to make the steps to create it?

Will we be getting off of our ever-widening asses and doing something about it or will we delegate to others who have the energy to get it done?

Whatever we choose to do it will not get done until the impetus of action is actualized in our behavior. Talk is talk and walk is walk. Until the talk becomes the walk the only thing created is expelling CO2.

Get on with it! Do something by making small steps toward it each and every day! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ANEW

In the morning all things seem anew
The struggles of yesterday
Seem so distant,
Your problems seem so few
After that first cup o’ Joe
The caffeine moves
Through your veins,
Your blood increases its flow
As the day progresses onward
Your problems seem to grow,
And the worries seem to forward
Less and less of what you know
Your beliefs rear their ugly heads
In a quest to protect and defend
When in reality they are illusions
That will lead you to no end
As the day winds down
And you lay your head to rest
The thought comes to haunt you
Did you do your best?
Rest assured in knowing
That your life is not a test
It is a place to share Divine love
As a resident and not a guest!
Christ said for us to be perfect
As the Father in heaven is
And as we fall asleep
In the bosom of the Divine, it ‘tis
~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEVER FORSAKING

When you feel like saying, “My God, why have thou forsaken me” is when you need to realize that what you should be saying is, “My God, why have I forsaken trusting in you?”

The Divine is always there guiding and directing you while moving Divine order to perfectly allow you to be whole. Trust in that more than what you feel is happening.

God NEVER forsakes his children; it is us who forsake trusting in God that separates us from the bounty of the omniverse. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MEDICAL TESTS

A friend on FB complained about the high costs of medical ‘tests’. Another claimed that the entire healthcare approach is a misnomer because it doesn’t seek to cure people.

As long as the medical profession treats symptoms and not causes and we accept their diagnoses without challenge, then we will be supporting their skew on 'science'.

Medicine is NOT science; it is more of an art form. Let's try this and if it doesn't work then let's try that. THAT is NOT science! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

APPEARING TO BE ON THE SURFACE

Things aren’t always as they appear to be on the surface. When you dig deeper you discover the sub modalities underlying the appearance of ‘things’. You see what made things come about in the way they did and come to an understanding of why they came about to begin with and what purpose they were trying to fulfill. If you try to mask the true content and substance in order to win over the opinions of others, then you are NOT fulfilling the truth but pushing for your ego to WIN at all costs.

Lying by deception, by omission and by distraction is STILL lying. You can do this to convince your ego to make lying acceptable but you are just fooling yourself. When you lie to yourself to fulfill your own twisted agenda you are committing a crime against God, yourself AND everyone else. You are a viper in a pit waiting to strike in order to justify your own falsehoods.

Discern the truth by knowing ALL of the facts as they are without coloring their appearance in your favor. Bear true witness at all costs and you will be known as a servant of the Divine within you instead of a self-serving egotistical bastard who only cares about making themselves look good, in spite of the truth. Divine order always brings reaping from what you have sown. It might appear to be too long, but it will happen. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DREAM OF TRUE FREEDOM

Every time I watch Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech I am taken by his mastery of metaphors and the tears come streaming down my face. When I was 9 years old is when I first saw the speech and was awe struck. I had no idea what he was talking about and my mother explained it to me. I asked her “Why do they treat Negro people this way? What did they do to be treated this way?” She said that they just wanted the same rights and privileges that anyone in this country should have.

It made me remember when I was four and I noticed that the one black child in my school in Vermont was playing alone. None of the white kids were playing with him and I went over to play with him. After that, the white kids wouldn’t speak to me anymore and I told my mother about this when I got home. She looked at me and said, “Is he your friend?” I said yes and she said, “Then don’t let anyone ever tell you who your friends are.” Soon after my parents became friends with my friend’s parents and their other white friends wouldn’t speak to my parents anymore.

My parents were immigrants from Scotland and Italy and they knew exactly what prejudice and hatred can bring about. As I wiped my eyes I came to realize that much has changed on the outside in 50 years but hardly much on the inside. Every generation must be reminded of the scourge of prejudice, the evil of the Holocaust and the ever-pervasive ego centered agenda of genocide. We need to remind our children, our grandchildren and great grandchildren of the lessons we all have learned so that they won’t have to be repeated. We all need to focus on the words that set us all free. Please go to the following link and read the “I Have A Dream” speech in its entirety: It is electrifying, demonstrative and inspiring. It is the words of what freedom truly means!

Read the words of a man who lived it, lived in it and lived to bring us all together. God bless all of you and may you, your children, your grandchildren and your great grandchildren always carry the message that says, “Free at last, free at last, Great God Almighty, We are free at last!” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FAULTS OF A LEADER?

In regard to the faults that some have pointed out about Dr. King, I have this to say: You can fault the man all you want, but you can't fault what he said in that speech 50 years ago.

The ideals are what is important, not the faults of the person who delivered the message. Dr. King was inspired to give us all hope in living in Divine love for EVERYONE!!!

Listen to the words of the inspired without judging the messenger of the inspiration. Stay focused on a world in which Divine love is what motivates us all to help each other become the best we were created to be.

Be inspired (in spirit)! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHEN TRUTH HITS HOME

When the truth hits home we feel it deep within our hearts. We feel the joy, the pain, the optimism and the downside. We know it’s the truth because it resonates our being with a series of ‘ah-hah’ moments that open our minds to our spirit within.

We become one with what we know is right and not what we believe is right. The truth rings our inner bell of freedom to know what is truly right and what is definitely wrong.

Seek the truth always and keep your heart open to the flow of Divine love. Living in Divine love is allowing the truth to be your guide and your heart to be the vessel of Divine service to all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WAIT A SECOND...

Wait a second. Take a look around you right now. Take in everything that you observe. Not just with your eyes, but with your ears, your nose, your mouth and your skin.

Feel the energies being received by your senses and close your eyes. See the mental picture they create in your mind’s eye and feel your connection to it all in your heart.

Connect the dots between the physical environment, your emotional feelings, your mental images and your spiritual heart.

Know that we are all connected through the spirit within and serve all of humankind with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

Align yourself with Divine order and fulfill your Divine purpose. Anything else is a distraction from why you are here.

Make sharing Divine love a priority and all else will be added unto you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE STRIKES OF THE VIPERS

The only way a viper can strike is if you don’t sense where it is lurking and it takes you by surprise when you are not paying attention to its evil intentions. Assuming that it plays fair is a gross mistake because it is driven by self-interest and conquest. Facing a viper head on minimizes its perceived strength and exposes it in the clear light of day. Its strength only comes from in the shadows where most don’t sense it lurking there ready to strike.

Shining the light of truth on it exposes its intent and makes all aware of its evil agenda. Yes, you might get bitten and the poison will begin coursing through your veins but the power of Divine love will nullify its deleterious effects. Its bite will only kill you if you buy into the fear it generates. It cannot survive in the light of truth because its very existence is dependent on not appearing as being threatening at all. It will assure all others that it is there to help and not destroy; to heal and not hurt; to allay any fears.

Deception is the survival tool of a viper and the more it deceives, the deeper it digs itself into a hole. One day we will all shovel dirt into that hole and it will not be able to escape. This only comes when we bind together with the truth and put a stop to the evil that lurks in the darkness. That’s why it is always important to share the pitfalls with others that are hidden in the road. Warning everyone demonstrates your love for all despite the fact that they might not want to hear it or see it for themselves.

Only in darkness can vipers effectively strike because you cannot plainly see where they are hiding, where they are coming from and what target they are attacking. Shining the light on darkness comes when you allow your inner well-being to guide your steps to avoid treading where they can strike without notice.

The darkness is accepted by the ego because it needs to be justified in its own existence and uses it to convince us that it is valid, when in truth it isn’t. Trust in the Divine more than your demons. Your inner demons will deceive you while the Divine always gives you life everlasting. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REMOVING YOURSELF

Removing yourself from a tense situation, relationship or ongoing attacks requires the ability to understand that you are being abused.

The nutrition of wheat is accessible when all of the chaff is beaten out of it. The idea is to stop beating the wheat when all of the chaff is gone; not continue until all of the wheat is beaten to death.

If others are causing you too much grief just for helping them, it is time to leave and secure your peace. Nothing good every comes from staying in a bad situation because you believe it will get better when deep inside you know it won’t.

Listen to your heart and know the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REMEMBERING WHAT'S IMPORTANT

When you remember something important that you just recently forgot you need to forget why you forgot it and do something to remember why you remembered it.

It came back for a reason! Remembering reveals importance while forgetting doesn’t mean that you throw up your hands in the air and say, “Forget about it!” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING WITHOUT THE TRUTH

Living without the truth is tantamount to living in a fantasy in which your ego distracts you from the fact that if you truly wanted to live in the truth you would accept it, allow it and embrace it.

Fooling yourself into thinking you know the truth as other than what it is will never allow you to live in the truth or experience the fullness of Divine love.

When the ego promulgates its version of the truth when it isn’t the truth, it reveals that it is NOT living in Divine love and only cares about its version of the truth. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORAL VICCISITUDES

I have just watched Sgt. Ty Carter, who had just received the Medal of Honor this week. He was speaking on Morning Joe about PTSD. He was talking about the stigma that is attached to labeling it Post Traumatic Stress ‘Disorder’ or ‘Syndrome’. Observing the horrors of war and living with the stresses is NOT a disorder or syndrome. It is a natural reaction to experiencing events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of others facing possible injury or death. It is dealing with the fear and serving others under fire. Many returning soldiers become alienated, reserved or isolated because they cannot share the recurring memories of injury or death with their loved ones because they care about them so much. They need counseling and group therapy with others who have experienced the horrors of war.

How many times have we felt that we have experienced something that has ‘traumatized’ us? I probably wasn’t to the extent of what our soldiers have experienced but it has had an effect on us that stifles our growth and expansion. It reoccurs at the most inappropriate times being triggered by associative memories that we haven’t effectively dealt with. Do we need professional counseling or just a shoulder to cry on? Are we simply not dealing with our feelings in a mature manner? Or is it more complicated than that? Any trauma forces our egos to deal with what we have experienced and we react with our emotions to comfort us in our reactive aberrances.

The point is that we all need to stop labeling normal human reactions to stresses. The brave Sgt. Said that we should simply call it Post Traumatic Stress…period! Opening up to our inner comforter is where we can effectively deal with what we have experienced. It is the knowing that what we have experienced is NOT us; it is ‘just’ what we have experienced. Personalizing stress is a natural reaction for human beings albeit not a good one sometimes. Letting it all go and trusting in the Spirit of God is the answer. Anytime we allow our egos to deal with it we will not be letting it go and we will ultimately suffer as a result. Being less stressful is learning how to let go and a great tool is consistent and daily meditation. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IS FEAR?

I’m sure all of you have heard of the acronym for FEAR as False Evidence Appearing Real. It is true that fear is an emotion you can experience within that can appear real to you. It is either a primary emotional reaction to an immediate perceived danger or a secondary emotion that arises after many other emotions are layered one upon another and create a state fear. The focus on what we fear can be evidenced in FDR’s greatest statement that “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.” This statement implies it is only OK to fear the state of fear.

But is that truly a positive reaction? I will suggest a new term here. We need to TEAR down the walls of obscurity and see things as the Divine projects them into our perceived dualistic reality. True Expression Arranging Reality (TEAR) is in essence the Sprit of God moving the act of creation with Divine love into the dynamic condition of Divine order. In turn, Divine order moves natural order to implement the expression of Divine love into our perceived dualistic reality.

We are in this dynamic ‘omniverse’ soup of many ingredients. We either FEAR life through not understanding how it works or TEAR down the walls of obscurity by understanding how to align ourselves with Divine order. When we are living in fear, we cannot be tearing down the walls of obscurity. We cannot be tearing and fearing concurrently, just as we cannot serve two masters. “No man can work for two masters, for either he will hate one and will love the other, or he will honor one and the other he will ignore. You cannot work for God and for money.” Yeshua (Matthew 6:24 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010).

In this example Christ illustrates the principle that we cannot focus on both fear and faith. If you fear, you are not living in faith. If you are truly living in faith, you cannot fear. Faith and Fear cannot occur concurrently! We need to develop and maintain faith in God’s True Expression Arranging Reality to TEAR down the walls of obscurity and perceived illusion and not succumb to FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). When you live in truth you allow Divine order to implement your Divine purpose perfectly and you don’t interfere in the process of unfolding by fearing the results of your unfolding. See the end result AS IT IS. Feel the joy from attaining that wonderful end result. Act as if you already have it and feel the joy.

Wayne Dyer restated this principle revealed in the Bible in his ‘Wishes Fulfilled’ program, “According to what is written: “I have appointed you a father to the multitude of the nations, before God, in whom you believed, who gives life to the dead, and he calls those who are not as though they are.” (Romans 4:17 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)). Call forth things and results that are not yet manifested as though they are manifested and Divine order will move natural order to make it so. And so it is! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TOP TEN HUMAN FEARS

There are many fears we experience in our lives. Following are the Top Ten Human Fears:

1. Fear of public speaking (Glossophobia) – Why do most people fear public speaking? Is it because you ego is in the spotlight and you fear that you won’t say the right thing? Or is it because you want to appear favorable to others and you fear what they will think of you? In this case, false evidence is appearing real to you. Anytime you fear something that you ‘believe’ might or might not happen, you will move from doubt to worry to fear. This is a secondary fear because it is as result of where you are in relation to others and not in perspective to yourself.

2. Fear of death (Necrophobia) – Why do most people fear death? Is it because they are afraid of their own pain or the pain of their loved ones when they are gone? Or is it that it is a complete unknown and that you feel guilt for not doing certain things in life and you wish that you could have done those things? In this is case, false evidence is again appearing real because you are fearing what you do not know for sure. This is a primary fear because it involves the unknown.

3. Fear of spiders (Arachnophobia) – Why do spiders conjure up such fear in humans? Could it be that we are pre-programmed from when early humans encountered larger spiders that bit them and caused painful reactions? Or is it the look of the spider and the web it creates that creates an ominous feeling of being doomed by being caught up in its web? In this case, false evidence is appearing real about what a spider could do but it is REAL evidence as well. Why? If a large spider was crawling up your arm right now that is NOT false. You would react with instinctual programming to remove the spider from your arm for fear of being bitten or fear of having such an ominous looking creature in such close proximity to you. This is both a primary fear for some and a secondary fear for others.

4. Fear of darkness (Myctophobia) – Why do humans fear the dark? Could it be instinctual or could it be just a fear of the unknown? In this case, we are again dealing with false evidence; however, what could be in the dark could be harmful to you if you ‘feel’ that it is. This is a primary fear for some and a secondary fear for others.

5. Fear of heights (Acrophobia) – Is this really fear of heights or fear of falling from those heights? This is a real fear and there is NOTHING false about it. If you do fall from a great height you probably will die or become severely injured. This ties this fear to fear of great pain and bodily harm and fear of death. It is a secondary fear because it depends on what you do with your perception of your balance and stability with your physical being.

6. Fear of people or social situations (Sociophobia) – Is this fear a real fear? It is if you fear what people will do to you to threaten your survival. This used to be considered a primary symptom in Asperger’s Syndrome, however, A.S. is now being defined under the umbrella of Autism. This is not a real fear if it is based on what one ‘thinks’ and ‘feels’ will happen to them contrary to convincing evidence. Mostly, this is a secondary fear unless the person is convinced by hard evidence that interacting with others will threaten their self-survival.

7. Fear of flying (Aerophobia) – Again, is this a fear of flying in the clouds or a fear of falling from the clouds and being severely injured or dying? Thousands of flights occur every day without incident and most people get from point A to B without any problems. The probability of a safe flight is quite high, yet some still allay that fact with the fear that ‘something will happen to them’. This is a secondary fear that feels powerful to some and means nothing to others.

8. Fear of open spaces (Agoraphobia) – Why would some fear open spaces? Does it hearken back to early humans who felt vulnerable to attack without trees or rocks to hide behind when other animals attacked? Or is it simply the feeling of being exposed to what you don’t know is observing you? This is a secondary fear that is more based on false evidence that appears real. Shut-ins fear being out in the open and spend many years of their lives being secure in a shelter because it inherently ‘feels’ defensible.

9. Fear of thunder and lightning (Brontophobia) – Why do we fear the sound of thunder? Is it because of a pre-programmed fear of the unknown or is it learned behavior about a God hurling lightning bolts down on the wicked? Why do we fear lightning? Is it because we know that it might kill us or is it the flash of intense light that disrupts our normal experience? Again, is it because of early programming when humans saw lightning split a tree and having a real fear of what it might do to them or is it false evidence based on an internal perception of a deity inflicting punishment? Mostly this is a secondary fear that becomes a primary one when one gets struck by lightning.

10. Fear of confined spaces (Claustrophobia) – This is the opposite fear of Agoraphobia. Instead of fearing open spaces and being secure in closed quarters, a person seeks refuge from tight spaces by being in open spaces. They feel ‘boxed in’ and ‘enclosed’ and seek freedom at all costs. Is this fear based on the fact that tight spaces inhibit our movement or is it based on an internal perception of being in a casket upon our death for eternity and not being able to get out? This is definitely a secondary fear because it pre-supposes that being restricted in any way inhibits freedom. It is false evidence appearing real.

Not on this list are Fear of Failure and Fear of Success. Fear of Failure is ‘believing’ that you will not do what is necessary to be successful and that you will be rejected by others because you weren’t ‘good enough’ somehow to be successful. Fear of Success is ‘believing’ that if you are successful, the end of your attempts at such and achieving your goals will cause others to reject you for being successful. The key ingredient here is the Fear of Rejection. Tony Robbins once made this distinction. Both FOF and FOS have their roots in FOR. They are both false evidence because it is a perception of how others will ‘react’ to you based on the results of your performance and NOT the content of your character.

As we can see, primary fears are ‘believed’ because they actually can cause us physical harm, whereas secondary fears make us ‘believe’ what ‘might’ happen regardless of the fact or the ‘odds’ that it ‘might not’ happen! Mostly, fears ARE False Evidence Appearing Real but NOT always. Fear can be a useful and effective tool of self-survival when we take its ‘feeling’ seriously. The idea is to not let it rule our lives and cause us to stifle our growth, expansion and progress into fulfilling our Divine purposes in Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WITH ALL DUE RESPECT

“Franklin Roosevelt once said, “There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself.” During those times it was a motivational statement designed to encourage a nation to come together to fight a common foe.

However, choosing to fear something, especially fear, will bring more of it to you by virtue of the fact that it is in the forefront of your attention. What you recognize, dwell upon and give energy to will manifest.

If you fear fear, you are giving it power over you. If you have faith in God, you are pointing your energy in the direction of love. You are eliminating fear by embracing its opposite state.

As it says in the movie, “The Secret”, Mother Teresa said she would attend a Pro-Peace Rally and never an Anti-War Rally. Whatever you focus upon will be your experience.

Why? Because your consciousness will recognize whatever agenda it sets out to manifest and ignore the rest. So don’t fear fear. Turn it around and have faith in faith. There is everything to have faith in, even faith itself.”

With all due respect to FDR, we all have to realize just how the omniverse works.

That to which you focus on, the like state will be drawn unto you because of your identification with it, the thoughts you generate as a result and the feelings you embrace to support those thoughts.

In regard to this, I have modified FDR's statement to more accurately reflect the truth of just how the omniverse works:

There is nothing to fear; especially fear itself. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

Stupidity has a way of making itself known because it needs to gain the support of other stupid people in order to validate itself. It is nothing but ego stroking ego to 'feel' better about the fact that it doesn't have a clue what is really going on. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who talk when they should be listening are not following their inner guidance and are blocking out the message of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who demand your attention when they should be allowing it to be are not following their inner guidance and are not allowing the natural flow of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who attempt to control, dominate and manipulate others when they should be listening to the Divine within are following what their egos are demanding and not what the Divine is guiding them to do. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to be a slow learner and learn well enough to practice what you learn, than to never learn what is needed to be the best you can be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What you least expect to happen is what you should pay attention to no matter what; it will be the one thing that has free reign to sneak up behind you and bite you in the ass when you are not looking! Paying attention means being aware of more than you think is going on; trust your gut feelings and have eyes in the back of your head! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What is a theory to some, is a belief to another. What is a belief to someone, is a theory to another. When the knowingness of the Divine takes precedent over all beliefs and theories, then the only thing left is the knowingness of the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Even when the darkness engulfs the light, it is still present. It is up to us to keep the light of truth burning for those who have the eyes to see it. No matter what surrounds us, Divine love is always present and needs you to express it despite all of the perceived evil in the world! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“You are the light of the world. You cannot hide a city that has been built upon a mountain” ~Yeshua, Matthew 5:14 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). Shine forth your light into the darkest corners of the world and declare Divine love for all. When we all declare the existence of Divine love we will experience its blessings each and every day of our lives! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Minute by minute you can change your life. Why aren’t you? Do you have something better to do? Aren’t you worth it? I believe you are and more so I KNOW you are! Do it; minute by minute! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Sometimes you see things, forget them and then they come back later to be a fortune in disguise. Never discount what you ‘feel’ is good to you. Let it roll! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT COMING HOME ANYMORE

I once watched an episode of The Andy Griffith Show. Andy kept warning Opie about his new sling shot and he kept using it until he accidentally killed a bird. When Andy came into his room he asked Opie for the slingshot and confronted him about killing the bird. Opie said, “Am I going to get a whippin’, Pa?” Andy said no and walked to the window. He opened the window and told Opie that he had to sit there for awhile and listen to the baby birds chirping so loud because there Momma wouldn’t be coming home no more.

The next day Opie decided to feed the birds every day until they could be on their own; since he took away their Momma. Isn’t that what welfare is for? We all take on the responsibility for others when they are hurting and help them to get back on their feet so that they can support themselves? How can we all do this when the greedy CEO’s keep the wages so low for their workers that the state has to supplement their needs?

Sometimes all anyone needs is temporary help to get back on their feet again. We have a social safety net just for that purpose. Those who haven’t had the advantages that others have had can get training and work. Decent work where they CAN support themselves and NOT the summer home of the CEO. Let’s get real, people. Australia is doing quite well by raising the minimum wage and helping those who are on the low end of the employment chain. It works when you enrich the lives of others and not take away their dignity and self-respect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIFE IS PRECIOUS

Will you ever notice just how precious life is? From the birds chirping in the trees to the tree frogs and crickets at night, life let’s itself be known by expressing the sounds of communication. Life reaches out to other life in order to survive. But is that all there is? Are we sitting on top of the food chain to be ‘fickle’ about life other than human life? Or are we accommodating in different situations to the value of life? Are our ethics about life situational or absolute? Do we really care enough to help the bird with a broken wing and take it to a bird sanctuary or are we more concerned about how it inconveniences us?

Reaching out to all of life demonstrates just how much we value it. Sharing Divine love means that we are aware enough to know when to act, how to act and where to act to help another creature survive. If it weren’t for the loving people who donated money that they earned to help us take our dear boy Blackie to the Vet he might still be in severe pain and may have died. If it weren’t for those who extended themselves to help him he wouldn’t have a chance. How many animals are alone without humans to care for them? Millions?

I don’t know but I do know that these wonderful human beings made the life of my cat a priority and reached out to help him survive. Thank you Jackie Rettberg, for your relentless fundraising work yesterday and for the many others that contributed to helping out little boy. I am in your debt for the love you have freely given and I will be there for each and every one of you when you need me. God bless you all and thank you God for touching the hearts of these blessed soils with your Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

APPEARING MIRACULOUSLY!

Share the Divine love in your heart and things that you thought and felt might not ever happen appear miraculously. It’s not that they weren’t always there; they were.

It was in opening your heart and sharing your blessings that YOU became aware of what was already here. Know that everything that ever was, is now and will be are here each and every moment for your joy when you allow yourself to be aware of the ever presence of Divine love.

We are here to share Divine love because it is natural, not miraculous. What the true miracle is in your life and everyone else’s life is the ability to get out of your own way to be what you naturally are; Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
