GOOD AND EVIL

Living in the illusion of the perceived dualistic reality we eternally experience varying degrees between black and white, cold and hot and darkness and light. Our senses react to the waves of these projections and our brains perceive what they mean to us. Our minds then analyze whether they are threatening or not by how we react to them from the feelings in our hearts.

We are constantly experiencing life in the midst of what we perceive as good and evil. But what is good? It is anything that supports and respects life through invigorating interactions in our environments by sharing love, Oneness (Unity) and peaceful co-existence. Evil is anything that is life debilitating and promotes hatred, separatism and war. All perceived life exists between these two polar opposite extremes.

Like-minded people who enjoy each other’s company sometimes become friends and those who don’t like each other or each other’s viewpoints can become enemies. People you are either barely interested in or apathetic about are just acquaintances. An old saying sums it up: "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." (Machiavelli in "The Prince" - the definitive guide for how to be a dictator). By keeping your friends close they will support you and your purpose and when you keep your enemies closer you will know exactly what they are doing.

It doesn’t mean that you surround yourself with negative people; it means that in order for you to be aware of their plots at undoing your divine connection and your understanding of truth you need to know and anticipate any of their attacks on you and be prepared to defend yourself at a moment’s notice. But how do you defend yourself from these attacks? Are your enemies so huge, well-financed and formidable that you cannot thwart their attacks on you? Hardly.

Remember the story if David and Goliath. Faced with insurmountable odds one small shepherd boy with a few rocks and a slingshot defeated a giant armored soldier. Evil has its weaknesses. Good has its strengths. The only perceived strength in evil is when people succumb to intimidation and fear. The perceived strengths in being good come when we allow the Divine to guide us in how to act and behave. We have a divine connection at all times and it is ‘we’ who separate ourselves from the Divine; not the other way around. What we often perceive as the enemy outside of ourselves is in fact the enemy within us; our egos.

Our egos have a job to do and most times they do it well; to protect ourselves at all costs - even to the detriment of others. The ego uses selfish desires to grow and manifest in order to justify its own existence. The ego redirects your attention to living outside of yourself in order to ‘react’ to events, situations, occurrences, circumstances and the behavior of people. When you make the time each and every day to commune with the Divine you gradually allow the Spirit of God to take command over your ego and its ability to control, dominate and manipulate your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, actions and behaviors.

By immersing yourself in the living waters of peace, you diminish the veil of illusion that our egos generate in our perceived dualistic reality. The ego distracts your focus by making you believe that your enemy is outside of yourself when in fact, it is your ego that is the enemy to ‘allowing’ the Spirit of God to guide your life. It will always make you feel impulsive, reactive and right. The Spirit of God allows you to be patient, proactive and loving. Know the enemy within and temper its control with regular and disciplined meditation.

The goal is not to remove your ego; it is to keep it in its place. It has a job to do and your inner spirit provides the guidance in how and when to use its functions for the safety, security and progression of fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order. Get out of your own way by keeping your ego in check and listening to the still small voice of God guiding and directing you to become who and what you were created to be. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SECOND COMING

Those who feel we should do nothing to respect our planet because of a belief in a 'second coming' are forgetting about those who realize that they are full of B.S.

Eschatology is a total and complete lie! It was set up by church doctrine to instill fear and maintain control over the masses. We have been given the gift of this warm, beautiful planet and it is our responsibility to maintain it, love it and keep it clean.

Those who choose to be lazy about this because of what some book says written over 2000 years ago are foolish indeed. I have one thing to say to them: Grow the f**k up! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PLANT YOUR SEEDS

Letting go of everything that you need, want, desire and expect to happen in your life is the beginning of developing trust in the Divine. A farmer plants seeds and nurtures their growth and expansion while trusting in nature to take its course.

Plant your seeds and let them go; don’t dig them up to see if they are growing. This demonstrates lack of trust and faith in the process of natural order and interrupts the nurturing process.

Complete trust in the Divine to meet our needs, nurture our wants, feed our desires and manifest our expectations creates the movement of Divine order to ‘impress’ natural order in the fulfillment of our Divine purposes.

Release any attachment to a specific outcome and allow the omniverse to move freely in your favor. Trust; have faith in your Divine purpose being actualized every day. Open your heart to the love of the Divine and experience the bounty of the omniverse. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ANGER

When you let go of the things that anger you is when you open up yourself for understanding. Anger is the feeling that you have when you are not being treated fairly. You feel slighted and not favored so your ego lashes out with force.

Get the anger out of your system; yell, hit a pillow, squeeze a stress ball or take a long walk. Only when you release that anger will you be able to create a hole for Divine understanding to fill up with peace. Don’t bury the anger or it will resurface at an inappropriate time.

Purge yourself of the poison that soils your being and Divine understanding will gradually bring you into complete peace. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

20/20 HINDSIGHT

One day you will come to know why things have happened as they did in the past. You will see with 20/20 hindsight and know where you made the mistakes or the right moves that resulted in the manifestation of an event, situation, occurrence, circumstance or the behavior of people in reaction to your behavior. You can envision that time before things transpire by allowing Divine wisdom to come into your awareness.

This requires daily, diligent and effective meditation. How can you listen for guidance if your silent ear isn’t ever used? You can only use it by regularly and consistently dipping into the well of consciousness and feeling the joy of Divine communion. Deep in meditation you will become timeless and be able to see from the Divine perspective of the past, present and future simultaneously.

This is your only time machine. Use it to realize who to move with, what to do, where to do it, how it should be done, when it needs to be done and why you need to do it. The answers to all of those questions will become apparent when listen to the silence within. Make it a priority! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ZIG ZAG

Too often we zig when we should zag; we talk instead of shut up; and we emotionally react when we should think. Choices are what drive our lives.

Decisions are what move us forward. Behavior is what expresses our desires. Fulfillment is what satisfies our spirit.

Choose to recognize your higher power, decide to move in the direction of the manifestation of your Divine purpose, behave in accordance with Divine order and become fulfilled from within.

Satisfaction, peace and understanding only come when we allow the Spirit of God to move through us and manifest beauty in our lives. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LESSER OF
TWO EVILS

It is a shame that our choices in the political realm are the lesser of two evils. However, that is better than doing nothing at all. We need to move forward and not restore our future; how can you restore something that hasn't even happened yet?

It is a contradiction on terms designed to confuse those less discerning than others. Participation requires choices and moving forward requires effective choices. Choose wisely to participate.

A voice not heard does not participate in the chorus of voices. Make a stand and make your voice heard.

Otherwise, you are allowing those who are less discerning to affect your life in ways that you can’t even imagine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

POLITE?

I am beyond being polite anymore with dumb people. There is a difference between ignorant people and dumb people. Ignorant people can learn and dumb people don't learn or avoid learning at all.

The stupidity of the uninformed masses doesn't justify me having to deal with verbal window dressing anymore than they have to deal with the fact that they can get off of their ever widening asses and go to the library or search the Internet and find the truth.

Anything worth anything requires movement in a direction based on the facts and not on the agenda filled opinions of selfish and manipulative individuals who are out for their own self gain.

No more placation over who does what to whom when the truth is a short drive from your home or available with a simple mouse click on a reputable website.

Get out and do the work before you flap your jabber or punch your keys. Otherwise, you are spewing horseshit to the masses based on your egotistical agenda. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

When you speak to the first person you see today speak encouragement into them. Show them the peace and love in your heart and share a part of you with them. It will heal both of you and make this world a better place. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I accept all outcomes in Divine order. My peace is in not knowing how and when things will be set right. My job is to have faith and trust that it will when the time is right. Maturity teaches you to not react with anger but to proact with love. All is good, right and in alignment with Divine order. My duty is to accept things as they are and trust in the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you live outside of yourself you are trapped in illusion. When you live from within you are free to be whom and what you truly are. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you allow a worldly perspective to determine how you shine in this world you are living a part of a worldly existence that never completely satisfies and never validates your Divine purpose. Elevate your life to a Divine perspective and your vision will be clear, unobstructed and omniversal. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When others lie about you, you have choices. You can react with anger, do nothing or proact with love. If you react with anger it will consume you. If you do nothing it will define you. If you proact with love it will refine you into being an extension of Divine love. Which will you choose? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The most selfless act of love is in letting go. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It's hard to get warmth from a cold shoulder. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you ask in sincerity God answers in simplicity. When you seek diligently God provides immediately. When you knock vigorously God opens the door to Divine bounty. The path to complete fulfillment in your life is through prayer, meditation and service. The actions you demonstrate with Divine love are echoed back to you pressed down and running over. Our God is great! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Wherever you are you are there and elsewhere. It depends on the observer. ~Quantum Mechanics

Trust in the Divine with all your mind and heart and everything you were created to be will unfold into your experience with every breath you take. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It's in the moment of you feeling blessed that the Divine has touched your heart with purity, infinite blessings and boundless love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRAVELERS

We are all travelers. We travel through space rotating around our planetary center at approximately 1000 to 1200 mph; depending upon where we are on the Earth. The Earth moves around our Sun (the star called Sol) at about 66,000 mph. In our Local Bubble of stars we are traveling at about 43,000 mph through space. Our Local Bubble is traveling at about 483,000 mph as it orbits the Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is moving through the Cosmic Background Radiation of our Local Cluster of galaxies at about 1.3 million mph. We are always in constant motion. As we travel on this orb at such a delicate and omniversal balance we are at a crossroad in time.

For the first time in our history we have the power to disrupt this delicate balance. The Earth’s age is about 4.6 billion years old. Before the Sun begins to fuse most of its lighter elements into heavier elements signifying its procession towards death, the Earth could exist for an additional 5 billion years. Through most of the existence of humankind our environment has been in control of our existence; now, we have developed enough power to affect our environment and disturb the natural progression of the life of our planet.

Our contribution to the pollution of our atmosphere, the oceans and land has caused chemical, meteorological and seismic interactions that could devastate our planet; not to mention the harnessing and utilization of nuclear power and its deleterious effects on our collective environment. We could meet all of our energy needs by tapping the energy of the sun, wind and earth and living in harmony with our environment. However, we are subject to greedy and unscrupulous individuals whose bottom line is more important than our collective survival. Be an active participant in the balancing of our aspirations with the needs of a healthy environment.

Elect representatives that support the development of energy sources that work in tandem with the environment and don’t rape the environment. We could start by removing Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House and his selfish agenda. Did you know that he and Boehner blasted Obama for not supporting the oil pipelines from Canada? Do you know why? Boehner is heavily invested in the companies that own ‘fracking rights’ along the pipeline. It’s easy to see why he is so passionate to build the pipeline; he would make a fortune at the risk of the safety of our environment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What Is Judgment? by Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE

Do you believe that if you study hard, observe successful people and buckle down into hard work that you will possibly feel fulfilled some day? Do you think that your perception of struggling along the way is sanding off the rough edges so that you will smoothly and magically become successful? Or do you believe that in order to transform your possibilities into probabilities that some Divine awareness will befall you and you will become enlightened enough to understand your part in the grand scheme of things? Actually, yes to all of the above questions and surprisingly no to their occurrences for you to discover and maintain your Divine purpose.

A purpose driven life is beyond setting goals, working diligently toward them and coming to an ongoing realization of whom and what you perceive you are. When you become one with an understanding of your Divine purpose and make the necessary steps toward the fruition of it in natural order, the omniverse is moved by Divine order to fulfill your Divine purpose. It’s as simple as that. What gets complicated is the ‘reading of signs’ and perceptions of ‘faux benchmarks’ by your ego that ‘measures’ your progress against the scale expressed by others.

The ego is continually trying to ground your Divine purpose in the perceived dualistic reality to justify its own existence and take the credit for all of your accomplishments. Your Divine purpose is limitless and boundless. The ego can’t deal with or control anything that is beyond its scope of its own limited purpose; it will try and always fail. However, your inner divinity is what feeds your heart with the sense of your Divine purpose and it aligns your physical expression of it through the manipulation of natural order by the power of Divine order.

The key to co-creating an ongoing state of expressing your Divine purpose is to simply ‘allow’ it to happen. Anything that is forced instead of driven by allowance slows down the complete manifestation of your Divine purpose in Divine order. It moves you out of alignment and you perceive the results as a ‘struggle’. Alignment requires letting go of any perceived control of manifesting your purpose. When you allow Divine order to move through you unfettered by the control of the ego is when the bounty and abundance of the omniverse is completely realized by your mind and your heart. It is, and always has been, you that has stifled your forward progress.

Complete trust in the Divine is what is necessary in order to convert possibilities into probabilities. Nothing else transforms omniversal energies in rapid succession as complete trust. You might perceive that things are not turning out in your favor in the present, but rest assured that the omniversal clock is set into motion to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order. The delay between the determination and the manifestation of your Divine purpose must be fueled by consistent allowance or the gaps will create uncertainty and it will eventually happen; however it will take longer. The longer it takes the more your ego has the opportunity to convince you that you cannot obtain the manifestation of your Divine purpose without its ‘help’.

Your ego is always seeking to be in command and when you finally learn to just simply ‘allow’ the Divine to guide your every step you will experience the ‘conversion’ from possibilities into probabilities. It will be seamless, hardly noticed and totally effective. Complete trust IS the faith that you need to co-create the life that you desire. The desires of your heart are ‘of the Father’ (de-sire; Latin) and were planted there for you to water them with faith, trust and Divine love. Diligently practicing them every day will lead to the complete fruition of your innermost dreams. God is your pilot; NOT your co-pilot! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GATHERED FACTS

I base my 'opinions' on what facts I gather. If there are problems, I point them out.

I don't have all of the solutions but I do know one thing: If someone's behavior does NOT contribute to the mutual growth and expansion of all, then it needs to be questioned, re-analyzed and re-drawn.

The acid test is if it expresses love and nurturing or division and separation. If it isn't about love, then we need a new plan. It's as simple as that. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

FINE ART PRINTS
Custom Fine Art by F.R. Rittenhouse

KNOWING THE TRUTH

Have you ever told the complete truth, nothing but the truth, so help you God, only to be told that you lied? How did you feel when you were honest and others said that you lied? Did you feel threatened? Did you feel shame? Or did you simply know in your heart that you told the truth in the face of adversity even though the rest of the world looked at you as a liar? Truth in the real world relies on individual perceptions of ‘reality’. We see things differently from our individual perspectives.

Our collective truths are based on observations of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances, the behaviors of people and natural order. The difference in the collective truths is when we ‘personalize’ what these experiences are in relation to our self-survival. Do we have a stake in the ‘game’? Or do we have a pre-conceived agenda that we need to align our perceptions with to ensure our self-survival? Our egos will control, dominate and manipulate what we perceive to make reality ’fit-in’ with what we ‘believe’ it should be. When we have transcended this egotistical need we allow the truth to stand on its own.

No matter what anyone else says we know exactly what ‘IS’ the truth and we allow the blessings of the Divine to move Divine order to reveal that truth to all when the time is right. Yes, we might take the heat and scorn of others during this ‘divine timing’ but in the end it is well worth it. Not that our egos will be vindicated, but that the complete truth will be revealed once and for all. We all experience our individual battles in life and we sometimes perceive that we have lost those battles; even though we relayed an accurate account we were perceived as liars.

What others think about us is truly none of our business. Our job is to relay the truth no matter what. It doesn’t matter that others might perceive us as liars. As long as we know that in the face of adversity we told the truth. We can stand on that as an internal principle and as a result we participate in the moving of Divine order in the favor of ‘all’ instead of manipulating information to appear as the truth according to the demands of the ego. Our alignment with divinity occurs when the truth becomes a priority.

When we live in the truth we recognize the divinity in others and we respect their divine connection as we respect ours. We share love with them even though they might incessantly lie because we ‘KNOW’ that it is they who have either lost their awareness of the Divine within them; or they know it, but deny it because they are slaves to the selfishness of their egos. It is always our ‘job’ to relay the truth no matter what is occurring. Bearing false witness shows that we are more concerned about how we are perceived than whether or not we have accurately told the truth.

It is always up to us to see things how they are instead of how we ‘think’ they are. In the privacy of our own minds we can ‘reframe’ what has occurred in the past in order to move forward effectively but we should never change the truth to suit our perceived purpose. Living from the truth requires us to be truthful in ‘all’ things, no matter what anyone else says or does. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR AH-HAH MOMENT

How do you know when you truly understand exactly just what your Divine purpose is and how you need to fulfill it? What are the clues that are revealed to enlighten you as to the next step in the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order? Do you have an ‘ah-hah’ moment or is the revelation gradual? Each one of us has our own way of knowing what to do, where to do it and when to do it. Generally speaking however, when you allow the Creative Source (The Spirit of God) to guide and operate through you there will be a feeling of inner peace. Your channeling of the Divine into your world is reflected in just how you feel.

If you feel great about life, then you are reflecting Divine love into your world. If you feel down and out, then you are reflecting your ego’s selfish desires to control, dominate and manipulate your environment to suit its needs.

When you are operating from the spirit you feel good all over and that reflects in your attitude about life and you allow Divine grace to give you inner peace in all things.

When you are operating from the ego you feel separated and disconnected and that reflects in your attitude about life; it also reveals your perceived acceptance of Divine separation and the fact that you are resisting Divine Oneness.

Stop fighting what you perceive is causing your problems when in fact it is your ‘reaction’ to your perceptions that is the cause of your problems. Allowing Divine wholeness to be your center is what brings Oneness with all of life. Resisting Oneness is accepting separation from Oneness and living ‘outside’ of yourself. Live from within and express without! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CULTIVATING AN ILLUSION

If you cultivate the illusion that your knowledge is greater or lesser than another, you are operating from the ego’s desire to separate and conquer or be vanquished.

It is the illusion that what you possess is knowledge without the wisdom to know the difference that fools you into believing what you know is correct beyond a reasonable doubt. 

In Oneness we all know what truly knowledge is; then we learn how to understand knowledge in order to cultivate wisdom. Wisdom is when we have amassed so much knowledge (or that we have none at all) that we now know we know nothing except what we have experienced internally and externally from our individual perspective.

Wisdom knows that experience is individual, knowledge is shared and wisdom is borne of one’s ability to let it all go and simply be. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CORNERED THE MARKET

If you believe you have cornered the market on understanding life, then your understanding of life has backed you into a corner. If you feel you have cornered the market on the expression of love, then your expression of love has backed you into a corner.

If you think that have cornered the market on possessing the correct knowledge of life, then your correct knowledge has backed you into a corner. If you act as if you have cornered the market on acquiring wisdom, then your acquired wisdom has backed you into a corner.

If you behave as if you are perfect and better than others, then your behavior has backed you into a corner. If you trust in the Divine with all of your heart, then your trust has backed you into a corner where you will be able to experience the bounty of life everlasting.

It’s all in your perspective and alignment with the Divine. Why can’t you see this? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRULY FREE?

Are you truly free to do what you need to do to become who and what you were created to be? Is the creation of your being a series of random occurrences that just happened to come about? Did the cosmic dice just fall where it may? Or did the Divine in its infinite wisdom design natural order through the impetus of Divine order to create you at this place and at this time to express your Divine purpose? And if this is so, then is your sense of freedom just an illusion?

Freedom is the state of being free rather than in confinement or under physical restraint. It is an exemption from external control, interference, regulation and the power to determine action without restraint [dictionary.com].

If the Divine truly created us with freedom and ‘free will’ then why do we feel that we are constantly at war with external forces that keep us from realizing the fulfillment of our innermost dreams?

Free will is defined as free and independent choice and the ability to make voluntary decisions. It is the doctrine that the conduct of human beings expresses personal choice and is not simply determined by physical or divine forces [dictionary.com].

In other words, we have the power and the ability to determine how our lives unfold by what thoughts, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors we express. Living with free will means that we are in command. As we view and experience the external forces of nature, many of us assume that we have no control whatsoever over these forces.

If that was true, then the astronomical possibilities of our existence to begin with would be so random that we would never be able to realize just who and what we are. We are the omniverse realizing itself. We have at our disposal the ability to mold and shape reality through the God given power of co-creation.

We attract all types of things into our experience by the thoughts, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors we express. We have the choice to either accept and allow or reject and resist these experiences as part of our growth and expansion into our Divine purposes. Things do not happen randomly.

We choose to be where we are and what we will experience by setting our point of attraction with the allowance or resistance of our experiences. We either develop fear of undesired experiences or we develop faith in developing desired experiences.

Our egos will keep telling us that we need to control, dominate and manipulate the behaviors and desires of others in order for us to experience the manifestation of our desires. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Knowing the truth from the Spirit of God reveals that we only have to ‘allow’ its guidance to take hold in our lives to manifest our Divine desires.

The ego always seeks to restrict your true freedom by influencing your environment. True freedom can only be allowed by you getting out of your own way and creating your point of attraction to match your state of Divine allowance. This harmony creates the manifestation of your Divine purpose in Divine order. Undesired results occur when there is a disharmony between your innermost thoughts and beliefs and your ability to allow the experiences you need to grow and expand.

By choosing life-giving thoughts and beliefs and aligning yourself with Divine allowance, growth and expansion occur. Your free will is implemented by working within the laws of the omniverse and you become an effective co-creator of the experiences you need for your growth and expansion into your Divine purpose.

How do you know if this is true? Are you currently living the life that you feel you should be living? Are you living in your divine purpose or are you living in frustration or apathy? The external results of your living experience will always reflect your inner state of being. If you are in alignment, your growth and expansion is moving in a direction of fulfillment. If you are not in alignment, you will be repeatedly encountering events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and people that will challenge you into dealing with them for you to grow and expand.

How you master your awareness of your free will is the key. Will you use it to co-create blessings for yourself and others? Or will you use it to repeatedly created challenges and problems that you will have to solve or deal with in order to become the ‘real’ you? Your true sense of freedom lays in your ability to make the effective choices about becoming the ‘real’ you every day.

Freedom is what you have and free will is what you use to co-create your reality. Why not co-create the life you desire to live by expecting it to happen through Divine trust instead of a self-centered sense of power or powerlessness? It is up to you to choose your path and follow through by allowing the best to happen in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

There is a solution. Be thankful for what happens in advance and trust in the Divine completely to move Divine order to affect natural order with the correct circumstances to fulfill your Divine purpose. Being thankful in advance without any physical proof is truly faithing. It is using divine vision to project the results you seek before they even occur.

Being thankful in advance is like paying it forward. It is giving of yourself toward the manifestation of your Divine purpose with complete trust. Don’t expect the worst to happen; expect the best to happen but always align yourself so that if it doesn’t, you are still in a good position to reorient yourself and do it again. It might simply be that it isn’t the right time in Divine order.

Be focused and diligent and know that if God is for you, who can be against you? In reality, it is only yourself. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW BLESSED YOU ARE!

Do you know just how blessed you are? Be thankful for the next breath. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to be thankful. Be thankful for your next thought. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to think about how blessed you are.

Be thankful for you next feeling. Without it, you wouldn’t be able feel the presence of God. Be thankful for your next belief. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to remember just how blessed you are. Be thankful for your next action. Without it, you might not be able to move in a direction.

Be thankful for your behaviors. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to express your Divine purpose in Divine order. Be thankful for everything. Without that, you wouldn’t be able to truly know the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DEEP AND PROFOUND

What is it about those who incessantly lie to everyone that keeps them doing it no matter how much they are confronted with the truth? Is it just ignorance of the facts? Or is it that we shouldn’t confuse them with the facts? Or is it perhaps that the facts really don’t matter, just their opinion?

Anyway you look at it; their ego is what is causing their incessant lying and NOT the Spirit of God within them. If they knew their inner divinity they would seek the truth at all costs and not their selfish desires; wouldn’t they? Wouldn’t anyone who intimately communes with the Infinite Spirit live for the truth, by the truth and in the truth? You would think so, wouldn’t you?

Associate with those who make the truth a priority. If they deny the facts of greed, selfishness and the findings of science then they have a serious problem. That problem is obvious! It is their egos out of control! Aligning yourself with the truth requires aligning yourself with those who respect the truth above all else.

Move towards the collective growth and expansion of all and leave the egomaniacs to their own devices. Pray for their awareness but don’t get caught in the snare of desperation and self-centeredness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SOUL DAMAGE

The damage to a person's soul who commits atrocities against animals is irreparable. When our society starts punishing people for animal abuse that is commensurate with acts against humans, we will begin become a more civilized society.

Respect for all life begins within and those who lash out at innocent animals to satisfy their aberrant needs and behaviors are human abusers in training. They practice their abuse on animals and eventually transfer that mindset of abuse to human beings.

They need help and the animals need to be taken away from them in order to heal. Be a participant in stopping animal abuse and you are preventing a future human abuser from carrying out their sick and childish acts. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BUTTONS

Are your sensitivity buttons always out there? Do you purposefully prop them up when others come around? Or do you protect them until someone says the wrong thing and you react with a storm of emotion? If you are looking to negatively react to anything it will find you soon enough. If you consistently walk around with a chip on your shoulder and look for others to ‘push your buttons’ you are co-creating more negativity. Being overly protective, cautious and too doubtful will create situations that support those beliefs.

If you discharge the buttons of reactivity and seek out positive emotions, things will turn out better than you might even realize. Reacting is automatic and pre-programmed based on the beliefs you have acquired in your experience. Pro-acting is a conscious choice to pay attention to how you are feeling and directing your thoughts and emotions to purposefully feeling better and achieving inner harmony; no matter what is going on around you.

Our natural states are of peace, well-being and experiencing love. Our unnatural states are states of anger, disease and dissension. Why put out there what triggers those unnatural responses? Why look for trouble? When you experience resistance to others and experiences, how you emotionally react will be how it affects you.

If you resist, things will persist until you allow them to be and NOT react to their existence. If you allow them to pass ‘through’ you without absorbing any perceptions of negativity, they will not affect you surreptitiously and adversely. You will have mastered the art of being transparent to aberrance and reflective of love. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DISCRIMINATION

When people discriminate against others for their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of their being it is the subsequent treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit [dictionary.com].

For example, they are of a different race, color, national origin, ancestry, creed, age, sex, religion, disability, arrest or conviction record, marital status, sexual orientation, military status and use or nonuse of unlawful products in their home or away from work. When people discriminate against others for their weight (whether too skinny or obese), body type, hairstyle, clothing choices, jewelry choices and personal attitude it is a lifestyle opinion more than discrimination.

All of these lifestyle choices are based on an individual’s right to carry or adorn themselves as a matter of their personal choice. Stating one’s opinion about lifestyle choices is NOT bullying another person unless they are derogatory and intentionally hurtful to another for a completely unjustified reason. Every lifestyle choice is an individual’s experience and anyone has the right to discern whether or not those choices are for them or not.

If they suggest that someone should lose weight for their health and to set a positive example to their kids, it is NOT bullying. It is tough love. When someone defends their infirmities and ‘owns’ them as a badge of honor it is their choice and they have to deal with the consequences of that choice. It doesn’t mean that we have to agree with their choices or that we will let them defend their infirmities to the point that they call us bullies. Bullies take what is different about someone and INTENTIONALLY make them feel bad to ridicule them, embarrass them and make them feel inferior.

People who care and demonstrate tough love say it how it is and ‘recommend’ better behaviors. In the following example, this reporter erroneously, in my opinion, calls a viewer a bully: I don't believe that the person who wrote this to her was bullying her. He was delicate and truthful and she was defending her aberrance like it was something to admire. If she is overweight, that is her problem and she created it. He was pointing this out to her in a civil way and he did NOT use derogatory terms like you are 'fat'. She is the one who overreacted and put out her buttons to be pushed. Being sensitive to other people’s infirmities is divine.

However, defending one’s infirmities is another thing altogether. She has some valid points but so does the man who emailed her. I truly think she could have handled this more professionally without airing out any grievances borne from her sensitivities. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I AND MY FATHER
ARE ONE!

I and my Father are one; a simple statement that was meant to make us all aware that we are connected with the Divine. We don’t exist outside of the Divine; we are simply a projection of Divine love onto the canvas of the cosmos. We are here to reflect Divine love back to the Divine and complete the cycle of creation through our expression of co-creation.

We are ALWAYS one with the Divine; it is our BELIEFS that separate us from the divine state of KNOWING and BEING. It is because we are fooled by and believe our SENSING and FEELING more than we trust our KNOWING and BEING. Oneness is an ongoing state of existence that is always occurring; what is sometimes not occurring is your awareness of it. Faith leads to trust and trust leads to allowance. Allowance is the state where Oneness flows unfettered by your lack of awareness of your Divine connection.

Reject what is not aligned with who you are; don’t resist it. Accept what exists as it is and allow the Divine to move through you. That is the power you have as a child of the Most High God. It was given to you through Divine grace and it is there for you to use it and bless yourself and others when you freely share Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR OPINION

What you feel is what you experience and what you experience is what you feel. Your opinion of God doesn't matter. What matters is your opinion of your experience and your opinion of what you feel. Ultimately, you are the judge of your own experiences and feelings. Who you are is what you believe you are in relation to your experiences and feelings. God is beyond what you experience and feel. He is not some vindictive male archetype hurling lightning bolts at you. If that is your impression of Him, then it is your ego that is fooling you.

The presence of God is within you right now and it is up to you to experience it and feel it. If you choose not to, then that is your right and your choice. However, what you read into life is your reality and not mine. And if you believe that everyone else’s life is good and that yours is the only one challenged realize this; you don’t know what others have to go through every day and if you did you might have a different opinion of your own life.

Life is only as 'good' as YOU make it. Peace and blessings to all who feel that God has abandoned you; may you heal in love from your experiences and be freed from your feelings of hurt and pain. You have chosen to believe what you experience and feel and God has chosen you to be a child of hope. Be that child and rely on Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
