MANY MANSIONS

“There are many lodgings in my Father's house, and if not, I would have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you.”  ~Yeshua, John 14:2 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010))

My friend, Keenan W. Robinson, asked a very poignant question. “The Father said in my House there are many mansions; so why in the hell is there homelessness?”

You can live in a house and never see the framework, the basement or the attic. It takes vision to see the possibilities and it takes work to convert them into probabilities.

Without Divine guidance we are motivated by selfish desires and with it we are concerned for the collective growth and expansion of all. If you don't experience abundance it is because your vision is focused on lack and limitation.

Experiencing abundance requires you to see beyond where you are and see where you were created to be and what you were created to do. Faith in what you don't see develops trust in what you can't see. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STATES RIGHTS

Every time you hear the argument that we need to give more power to the states realize just what it is.

'States Rights' translated means we don't want centralized bureaucracies so we can get away with playing our financial game in one state and use it against another to foster a greater profit margin.

It is a huge lie that distracts the focus from what they are trying to accomplish; deregulation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE

The Divine created you to express a Divine purpose in Divine order. What are you doing to fulfill that purpose? Do you trust in the Divine to deliver? Are you faithing in your beliefs to see the end result? Are you loving all whom you encounter and helping them along the way? Or are you feeling sorry for yourself because who you look at in the mirror is not what you want to be?

Your outer experience reflects your inner convictions. Project Divine love to all and receive the reflection to feel the Oneness of the omniverse. Be attuned to the still small voice of God guiding and directing you to become whom and what you were created to be. Anything else is just treading water. Eventually your arms and legs will get tired and you will sink slowly and drown in the sea of life. Be alive in the spirit and swim toward you Divine purpose.

Move along with the current of Divine order and bounce off of the rocks. Your scars will be healed when you trust completely. Spend your time seeing the end result and stop licking your wounds. It’s time well spent and necessary for your essential growth and expansion into the actualization and fulfillment of the ‘real’ you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

JUST DON'T GET IT

Some people just don't get it. Their ego’s in command and they believe that everyone else has to listen to it because it is their God. Next time someone tells you that you have to listen to their ego's advice, tell them this: What you believe is the truth and because you believe it is the truth is no criteria for me to accept it as the truth.

I choose to listen from within and listening to what you believe is the truth is not my duty nor is it yours. I will follow my own path to discovery and I wish you well on yours.

Please don’t force your conclusions on me because I have no interest in what you think is good or not for me. I am only interested in what truth I learn from within. Thank you; and have a great life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NAIVETY

When you are so naive that you believe lies without checking their source, who paid for the study and who can gain from a 'presentation' of 'facts', then you are being convinced by your ego's agenda that you should trust in those who live by their egos.

You are not operating from the discernment of spirit and you will be constantly fooling yourself into believing what you 'want' to believe. Truth stands up to intense scrutiny and can be replicated time and time again.

Falsehoods attract attention but wane in their impact when revealed as the control, domination and manipulation of egos seeking agenda manifestation. Don't believe what ANYONE tells you is correct.

Get off of your ever-widening ass and do the research. Enlighten your mind with the facts and open your heart to the truth. You will be living in the Kingdom of God here on Earth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HUMAN CAPITAL

Government has a duty to invest in its human capital. After all, it survives on taxpayers to support its financial structure. Being conservative doesn't mean you have to be an asshole. It means that you value what has been established and allow it to grow, not regress.

Too many pseudo-conservatives are in fact ‘regressives' because they feel they have lost what they once had.

In reality, they need to grow up and look around them to see that we all need each other and we no longer need their overbearing control, domination and manipulation of those who they feel aren’t worthy of them.

When pomposity and selfishness are once and for all put in check, we can learn to help each other become more progressive in our mutual growth and expansion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT OBSERVED

And when some of the Pharisees asked Yeshua, “When is the Kingdom of God coming”, he answered and he said to them, “The Kingdom of God does not come with what is observed. Neither do they say, 'Behold, here it is!' and 'Behold, from here to there!', for behold, the Kingdom of God is within some of you.” ~Luke 17:20, 21 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)).

This is what the Yeshua told the Pharisee’s when they again tried to trick him. Christ stated unequivocally that it is NOT observed! He went on to say that some would tell you to look outside of yourself for evidence. He then said that the Kingdom of God is within SOME of you. This was not a generic statement. The translation from the Koine Greek for ‘within’ is ‘in the midst of’, meaning that some of us live from the presence of the KOG but not all of us.

Only those who live from the Spirit of God live in the Kingdom of God! They extend themselves to their brothers and sisters, children and family, friends and neighbors, community and country and country and the world! They strive for unity ‘in the midst of’ diversity and never promote separation from the Divine. They are true children of the Most High God because they listen to and act upon Divine guidance.

The rest of the ‘Christian’ world will keep looking to the skies for Yeshua to descend from the clouds when in actuality this experience takes place deep within your heart. Stop looking outside of yourself to the observed world for the answers to your perceived problems when the Spirit of God is always in your heart and will answer your prayers when you ask in prayer, seek in meditation and knock in service.

Yeshua said it so clearly that many miss the simplicity of his message: “I am also saying to you, Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it will be opened to you.” ~Yeshua, Luke 11:9 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)) ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Carl Gustav Jung - The World Within 1

IT'S ALL OVER?

Don’t be fooled into believing it’s all over. In actuality, it’s just beginning. Why? Because the ego always needs to reassure itself that things are being handled for your best interests. Too often it will ‘celebrate’ instead of ‘relegate’ itself to being humble.

It needs to feel it is in control and when it comforts itself with the reassurances of completion it ignores what it hasn’t considered as being collateral. Much too often what your failed to consider or remain aware of is the very thing that undoes what you have accomplished.

Pay attention to everything around you no matter what is its inherent significance. It’s only over when you are completely grateful for what has happened and you humble yourself in thanks. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LYING TO YOURSELF!

When you deny the collective observed reality to manifest your skewed manipulative agenda you are not only lying to others, but mostly to yourself.

You are a slave to your ego and its control over you. You traverse through life following its lead day in and day out. You sometimes pound a religious book to prove your point when you have probably never read it.

You spend your life trying to convince others of your superior knowledge, your unapproachable veracity and your ‘divine’ understanding. You claim to follow the words and deeds of the ‘founder’ of your religion and walk in daily selfishness looking down on others.

You learn the ‘system’ and use its loopholes to your advantage while your fellow humankind is suffering, starving and fighting for survival. You attend your clubs, organizations and churches and walk upright in your own perception of your righteousness not even realizing YOU are the ones that your founder warned everyone against.

Who are you? You are a right wing Christian LIAR who hasn’t got the intelligence to listen to the guidance from the Divine; yet you tell everyone else how to live by YOUR rules and YOUR religion. You are a hypocrite, a viper and a Pharisee.

You are not following the tenets of Christ and you are not fooling anyone who knows the inner beauty and grace of the Divine. You might think that your Bible is the holy word of God but it is no more than the words of men who supposedly were ‘inspired’ by God.

Were you there when they received this inspiration? Did you actually see what happened? Do you still believe that the earth was created in 6 days? If you do you are a helpless fool who will never feel the presence of God until you grow up and realize that Christ died NOT for your sins, but for you to have life in living from the Spirit of God.

That was his message that came from HIS words and not from his disciples or his subsequent proponents. Read the red and learn the translations, idioms and true meanings of the word before you tell others how to live while you are walking around with your foot in your mouth.

If you truly love Christ for what he did for all of us then live by his example; help the meek and the poor; extend healing to others; and love God with all of your heart. Receive the TRUE message of the Christ and not the skewed message of the churches that have bastardized HIS word over the ages.

Grow up in your understanding of HIS message of love; anyone that tells you anything otherwise is a liar. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Just as water seeks its own level, allow stress to empty from you and feel the peace and balance of Divine love. Immerse yourself in the presence of God. Listen for Divine guidance. Do what the Divine says and fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Pride is what a fool uses to protect his foolishness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Encouragement is what a wise person expresses to share Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Kindness is what a person expresses when they understand what another is experiencing and they choose to lift them up instead of walk away. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Anger is what a person experiences when they have layered too many emotions on top of one another. They feel that their emotional burden is unfair and that others aren’t treating them fairly. When you expect to share love and don’t expect to receive it you have turned the tables and released the perceived burden into oblivion. When you feed aberrance with energy it grows and layers until you emotionally break down. Feed what is supportive of growth and expansion and be the love in the world. It is much better than consistently experiencing the deleterious effects of anger. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you have to lie to convince people that you are telling them the truth then your truth is plainly a lie. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Expectation of the yearnings of the ego is the root of all heartache. Expectation of the Divine desires in your heart is the root of all joy. Expect what the Divine has promised and don't expect what the ego says it deserves. That is the key to ongoing joy, peace, understanding and love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Life is the process of keeping what you want and getting rid of what you don't want in order to become the being you were created to be now and evermore. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Light of all creation emanates from your heart and touches the omniverse every moment of your life. Allow that Light to filter what you speak and craft your words to encourage, enrich and edify. This is how one heart touches another and we grow and expand into a mutual experience of peace. Be blessed with every utterance, every expression and every word. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What is the origin of the term Divine? The word comes from the Latin ‘dīvīnus’; the word roots are dīv (us) and -īnus /–ine (God). It means both God AND us (deity)! No separation, only Oneness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When we consider the needs of others this country [‘world’] will shine like a city on a hill. ~Martin Bashir

We are all very spiritual, kind, gentle and loving until we stub our toe on the leg of the coffee table. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“I refuse to impose my beliefs on others” ~Joe Biden. That is the major tenet of those who trust in the Spirit of God! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

George Carlin was a comedian, entertainer AND a prophet. Some think it is wrong for him to tell the truth and make a living at it. It is only wrong when someone believes it isn't alright for someone to make money at doing what they do best; and THAT is a foolish and erroneous belief! Be who you are and if you can make a living at it, then be blessed and thankful for your talents! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Be the real person you are inside and you will be co-creating a pathway for Divine love to bless you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RELIGION

Religion comes from the Latin word, 'religio', which means a binding together of people with common beliefs in being conscientious and respectful concerning life. It does not mean a formal structure of doctrines and dogma as many believe it is. However, the accepted definition is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs [dictionary.com].

Spirituality is defined as the state or quality of being dedicated to God, religion, or spiritual things or values; being contrasted with material or temporal ones [dictionary.com]. Spirituality is the individual experience of the recognition, respect and reverence of the Divine and religion is the collective devotion usually involving the rituals, traditions and tenets of the body of a church, its doctrines and dogma. Recognition, respect and reverence of the Divine do not require participation in a religious ‘structure’. However, being able to serve others with your dedication to and conviction of the spirit usually requires a social aspect of demonstrating and showing Divine love to others.

We learn this from interaction in churches and how to serve our communities with love. It doesn’t mean that we try to convert them to our way of thinking, but to serve them with Divine love. The edification of humankind is truly our religion and the edification of ourselves is the center of our spirituality. Being One with the Divine is the essence of all peace, mutual understanding and the expression of love; no matter what rules and regulations we adhere to in any form of religion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

WHO ARE YOU?

Who are you? You are the embodiment of the Spirit of God. The way you think, believe, feel, speak, act and behave is a reflection of just how much you embody that spirit and its natural state of peace, love, joy and understanding. You are an individualized expression of the Divine manifesting itself in the omniverse.

Are you creating joy and fulfillment? Or are you creating anger and mediocrity? Are you sharing Divine love or are you selfishly hoarding your talents, skills and abilities? Do you understand the other guy or are you posturing in your self-imposed sense of superiority? Are you living in peace or treading water in chaos?

Stop damming up the natural flow of Divine order into natural order by taking the wheel from the ego and allowing the Spirit of God to affect the omniverse in ways that lead to your complete fulfillment. Your ego will NEVER get you there, but the Spirit of God will! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LET GO OF PAIN

As you gradually let go of the pain the peace of assuredness grows within you. Just as the seed pushes the sprout through the darkness and resistance of the dirt, the stronger you become as you grow toward the light.

You will break through the surface and know that all is perfect in Divine order. It's a process you must live through while knowing that your inner peace is supported by Divine love. Trust and have faith in the Divine plan.

It is your rock and strength amid an ongoing perception of turmoil. Soak in the light and feel the warmth of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OMNIVERSE

I used to use the term universe when referring to the expanse of all that we see in every direction. Physics has postulated that there could be many universes parallel to one another like bubbles on a larger bubble and calls this the multiverse. Whether there is one universe (means ‘one’ song) or a multiverse (means ‘many’ songs), I have chosen the term omniverse to express what we experience through our senses and what our senses do not perceive. Omni is from the Latin and means ‘all or every’ and ‘to produce in abundance’ what we experience in the perceived dualistic reality (PDR); in other words, an abundance of songs.

The PDR reveals the extremes of cold and hot, dark and light and close or far; and many shades of grey in between. The existence we have is part of the all-encompassing omniverse that is like a huge ‘soup’ in which we experience what we call life. We are all just differently manifested ingredients in this soup revealing aspects, assets and characteristics of divinity. It is when we realize that the combination of all these perceived ‘parts’ is what synergistically constitutes the whole is when we open our hearts to Divine love.

We all exist in this omniverse together and any perception of separation is just that; a perception. The reality is that we project our individual energies into this soup and together, create a flavor that we all can savor. That flavor is reflected in the omniverse and it comes to realize itself through our consciousness. We are an integral aspect of creation and we have a duty to project growth and expansion instead of reduction and retraction.

We are co-creators in this vast omniverse and what occurs from our projections is perceived in our reflections. Co-create beauty, peace, love, understanding and joy over all else. Make the reflections of the omniverse shine with perceptions of Divine love every day of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE

There are many levels to the intensity one projects after understanding and committing to the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. Certain states of being are expressed by the thoughts and ideas that we entertain. If these thoughts and ideas stand alone for our observation, we compare them to what we have learned in the past in order to validate their possibilities.

If we have experienced similar thoughts and ideas that haven’t worked out well, we’ll have an emotional ‘reaction’ to them and lessen their validity. If we contemplate these thoughts and ideas into different possibilities, we can either reinforce our reactive feelings or dismiss them based on newer possibilities that weren’t apparent when things didn’t work out well. The flow of time is forward for our beings but backward in our retrospection.

When a thought or idea bubbles up to the forefront of our consciousness, we can either accept it or reject it. Thoughts and ideas are continuously being compared to our past experiences as they are filtered by the subconscious mind. Their validity, more often than not, is determined by emotionally reacting to them instead of THINKING about them. Emotional reaction appears automatic, but in reality it is an instantaneous comparison within of what hasn’t worked in the past and what could work in the future.

When we learn to think effectively, we can reason out the possibilities and minimize the overwhelming emotional reactions. Our thoughts and ideas are the fire and our emotional investment is the fuel. Acceptance and rejection require a lesser amount of emotional fuel. They are more based on reasoning out something than they are in an emotional investment.

Allowance and resistance are more based on an emotional investment than they are on reasoning. The former involves more reasoning while the latter involves using more emotional fuel to elevate the states of either reaction or proaction.

The reactive states are rejection and resistance and the proactive states are acceptance and allowance. Each state is at different ends of the emotional continuum. For example, it requires less emotion to reject something outright through reason than it does to resist something.

Resistance requires the reactive emotional fuel to reinforce the conviction of rejection. Allowance requires the proactive emotional fuel to reinforce the conviction of acceptance. Carl Jung once said, “What you resist persists.” Why? Because you actively push against something that you vehemently deny and you put emotional energy into it; and whatever you emotionally focus upon becomes your point of attraction.

As you intensify your ‘emotional attachment’, more and more of the same experiences occur in your life because that is what you are attracting into your consciousness! I have formulated and opposite to Carl Jung’s statement: “What you allow, is in the now.” What does this mean? When you decide to direct your emotions more toward proaction than reaction, you recognize and remember NOT to fight things but to let them pass through you without emotionally attaching to them.

Emotional reactions are valid to you because they involve what has happened as benchmarks of actuality to either change future occurrences or prevent them from happening again to your disadvantage. In other words, emotional reactions involve past occurrences and future possibilities; they put focus on the past or the future. When you direct your emotions to allow Divine order to move through you unfettered by your perceptions of what is happening, you move your acceptance of natural order into the allowance of Divine order.

You are existing in the ‘NOW’ through proaction. Anytime you add emotion to thoughts and ideas you are adding ‘fuel’ to the fire. Being conscious of what is actually happening allows you to grow and expand. When you merely exist without introspection, you wallow in mediocrity and tread water your entire life. You move from one scenario to another carrying your emotional baggage with you and reverting to it when the going gets rough. Your ‘emotional baggage’, in reality, exists as the walls of your comfort zone and you will prop them up to protect your protracted image of whom and what you perceive you are.

When you discharge any and all erroneous beliefs that reside in your belief system, you are in effect removing each piece of useless luggage from your collection of emotional baggage. “But how do I discharge these erroneous beliefs”, you might ask? Spend an hour a day on you by meditating, visualizing and programming positive into your life. Add emotional fuel to your goals and objectives by allowing Divine love to flow from your heart into your world. It will benefit others and you immensely. It will clear a path through the gauntlet of resistance into the realm of allowance. Your point of attraction will move from living in what you don’t want into living in what you do.

Be proactive and fuel your thoughts and ideas with Divine love. It is pure and it moves you toward fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ROOTED IN SELF

When you love what you want to do or what you feel you need to do more than the truth, you will lie to gain the support from others. From social and racial groups to religious and political groups liars proliferate because they alter the facts to suit their own perceived needs without an afterthought about how it might adversely affect others.

It is their egos that are in command and NOT the Spirit of God. Living from Divine love has a silent and still dictate: whatever contributes to the growth and expansion of all takes precedent over selfishness, control, domination and manipulation of others to further your own ego’s desires and aspirations.

When you think about your wants over the wants of others, you are rooted in self more than Divine love. It’s as simple as that. Where are you operating from? Only you can determine that! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LEARN

Avoiding the truth to fulfill your emotional agenda is like drinking sour milk for sustenance; you will regurgitate it because it is bad for your nourishment even though your intent in taking it was for nourishment.

Many times we do things we think and feel are right only for our beings to reject them completely. The lesson is in the fact that we either learn from our hidden agendas or succumb to them.

Anytime we don’t question our inner motives we go on automatic and suffer the consequences of our actions. Be aware of your mind and listen to your heart.

It is much better to sustain nourishment from healthy objectives than to sour the milk with blind intentions. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RIGHT NOW

What are you thinking about right now? Are you focusing on all the good in your life or are you reflecting on all the perceptions of the bad things that have occurred recently? If a musician wants to become better at executing his musical inspirations he must practice at his instrument every day to become proficient. This is how the musician maintains his ’edge’; practice, practice, practice. The act of consistently practicing programs the musician’s brain neural net to execute certain physical moves between the brain and the fingers or feet. The more the musician practices his exercises, the easier it becomes to replicate those moves within a framework of a song.

The same occurs when you focus on the good in your life each and every day. You practice seeing the good in all things and it becomes easier to maintain the experience of good things in your life. When you focus on good, good becomes you. When you focus on bad, bad becomes you. This might seem too simple but it is how the omniverse works. Seeing the good in all things brings more good things into your consciousness; through productive thoughts, elevating experiences, fascinating people and all the products of good things being attracted to you. In this way you can set your intention for good and beneficial results from your thoughts, words, beliefs, actions and behaviors. This unfolding feeds back an ongoing sense of appreciation within. The growth of your appreciation creates less resistance and you approach Divine Oneness more and more. An ongoing state of appreciation bonds your ego with your inner spirit and positions you to open up a clear channel to receive Divine guidance.

Becoming accustomed to this state of appreciation allows the greater YOU to work through your being to affect your life with the good results you are seeking. It also gives you pause when you slip back into resisting your own Divine good. When your inner heart and ego align completely all resistance drops and you enter into an ongoing state of allowance where everything you need, want, desire and expect to happen flows unfettered through your being and into your life. In essence, you allow your greater good to unfold from the Spirit of God.

Focus on what is good in your life, be grateful and most of all, be appreciative. This keeps you on the right path to eternal Oneness with the Divine each and every moment of your life. ~Dean A. Banks

NEED TO BE

You are exactly where you need to be right now. Stop second guessing yourself and look within to the Light that is your source. It is there where you will find where you need to be from one moment to the next.

Trust in the Spirit of God within you and you will be guided to be at the right place, at the right time and with the right people in order to live in complete fulfillment. Move forward into your Divine purpose by tuning into and obeying Divine order.

It is NOT revealed in the chaos of the world but in your center of peace within. Make the time to develop your ‘love affair’ with the Creator of the entire omniverse by going deep into meditation every day.

It is there you will experience God’s voice of silence and become aligned with Divine order. Not in the outer world; the expanse of the infinite world within. Peace on your life’s journey. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DO NOT BELIEVE

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~The Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddhartha, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)

REVELATION OF LIES

Those who blatantly lie will eventually be revealed in the light of truth. Lying to gain acceptance and support is the foulest of deceptions.

It assumes that who you are lying to are just plain stupid and won't check your 'facts'. Sorry Donald you are operating on borrowed time.

The truth will be revealed and you will be destined for obscurity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

POPECTOMY

Ever wonder why some people see and hear the truth of observable facts and form opinions that are contradictory to those facts? They need to perform a procedure known as a ‘popectomy’.

It's very simple. They need to take each hand and place them on their lower cheeks and push vigorously until their head pops out of their ass. When they stop smelling the stench of their own 'stinkin' thinkin' their heads will clear enough to see the light of reality.

It’s dark and selfish up there and once they begin to live in the real world with the rest of us they will eventually learn to consider the observations of others; before they form their erroneous opinions based on their own emotional skew of the facts and their desire to manifest their selfish agendas.

Yes, it makes a loud noise but it’s like popping a Eustachian tube; once it’s popped you can hear clearly again. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FROM STILLNESS
TO MOTION

Be still and listen to the whispers of the imperceptible manifesting as the perceptible. From stillness to motion and back, we unfold and refold from spirit to energy to matter and back. We exist in the continual motion of projection and in the complete stillness of Divine Oneness each and every moment. As we move from sensing to feeling to knowing to being we absorb the expressions of the omniverse.

As we move from being to knowing to feeling to sensing we impress the omniverse with our unique talents, skills and abilities. The omniverse gives us everything we desire when we share love and serve others. It reflects lack and limitation when we are selfish and uncaring. We experience what we project when it reflects back to us. The imperceptible affects the perceptible as the perceptible affects the imperceptible. It is always giving and receiving. Every time you desire something the existence of it not being fulfilled is created with that desire.

If you choose to focus on lack of fulfillment it is what will be created. If you choose to focus on complete fulfillment it is what will be created. Quit fooling yourself into thinking that what you desire is completely dependent on you. It is your own beliefs in not fulfilling your desires that prevent you from fulfilling them. Focus on the benefits and end result of fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order and feel the resultant joy. Practicing that everyday creates the habit of feeling fulfilled.

See it happening in your mind and feel the joy in your heart. You are a child of the Most High God and you were created to co-create your individual reality by sharing love in Divine service to others. Anything else is a smokescreen established by humankind to distract you from your focus on the Divine and make them a middleman between you and God. Don’t buy into their complete and utter bullshit. See things how they truly are and not how some preacher with a religious agenda presents them to you. Be the child of God that you are and trust no one; only trust God! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BROKEN HEART?

When you realize your heart is broken it is because you are honest with yourself. You are clear on what you have given and what you have received.

It is the opportunity for you to grow and expand into the being you truly are and move away from the one you were yesterday. Those who give love from their hearts are never at a loss.

They are closer to God than they might realize when they are experiencing pain. A broken heart reveals that you have a heart and those who have a heart know love, live love and are love.

Whomever or whatever has broken your heart has brought you closer to the realization of exactly whom and what you are. Be thankful and grateful for this experience as it is what has brought you closer to your divinity within. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOES PRAYER WORK?

Prayers only work when you trust in the Divine completely. Prayer is the act of recognizing, respecting and knowing that the Divine will bring about the best for all in Divine order. It is the practice of checking your ego by giving all of your perceived problems over to your Higher Power for the best possible resolution.

Faith in God is the act of allowing the Divine to work through you for the greater good for all. Prayer works and when you allow your ego to take hold it will tell you that it doesn't because it wants to be the boss.

Know that your ego has a job to do and that is to protect you at all costs. It will protect you from physical, emotional, mental and even what it perceives as ‘spiritual’ harm; that God is not on your side or out to get you. It fools you into believing that God is against you in order for you to trust it.

It is a liar and deceiver and it is up to you put it in check and allow it to protect you up to the point where you allow the Spirit of God to guide your every step. Prayer begins with accepting Divine grace, having faith in your Higher Power and trusting in the Divine completely. That’s how prayers get answered. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROFANITY

What is profanity? Is it using ‘curse’ words to emphasize your point? Is it an act of defiance of religious tenets as a form of expressing one’s angst against those tenets? Is it a way of controlling what people are hearing or reading? Or is it simply human acts of disgust that create images that horrify others? Profanity is defined as the expression of the quality of being profane.

Profane is characterized by irreverence or contempt for God or sacred principles or things; irreligious. Being profane is not being devoted to holy or religious purposes; unconsecrated; secular (as opposed to sacred). It is something unholy; heathen; pagan: as in profane rites.

Expressing profanity can be construed as not being initiated into religious rites or mysteries, as persons. It is also construed as being common or vulgar [dictionary.com]. My question is, by whom? Religious authorities? Secular leaders? Authority figures with personal agendas?

Generally, in religious communities profanity is an unacceptable form of expression because of its tenets that it is disrespectful toward God. WTF? (Excuse me!). Who in God’s name EVER said that? Some pompous ass with a sense of superiority who is constantly implementing agenda manifestation upon others? Whoever it might be, the fact remains that words have power and create images in other people’s minds.

The use of profanity is a way of cutting through the veil of erroneous beliefs and capturing another’s attention. Those who are pre-programmed by fear from religious institutions most often seem to react with disdain toward those using profanity. Get off of your high horse you self-righteous ass! Who died and left you God’s representative on earth anyway? Your own sense of self-importance?

Yes, you can choose how you want to be talked to and that is your right. But to ignore someone’s argument because they choose to use words you don’t like or that ‘offend’ you is childish at best. Why? Because a child reacts to what people say and a mature adult proacts from what people say, how they say it and why they have said it. Maturity is not based on the words you use but the discernment you employ in dealing with reality.

Rejecting someone because they express themselves with profanity reveals that your ego is uncomfortable with the fact that you cannot control them or what they have said. It is part of the expressions of the ego that seek to control, dominate and manipulate the actions of others because they threaten your sense of self-survival. In essence, it is imposing your own limited restrictions upon others. Love allows others to be who they are but also stands firm on the solid ground of realistic boundaries; not egotistic ones.

Being irreverent of religious authority figures is not a bad thing. Being irreverent of God is. Religious piety is more ego than spirituality. Being spiritual means that you respect the Divine within others just as much as you respect the Divine within you! It doesn’t mean that if someone violates the assumed ‘rules’ of communication that they are being irreverent or bad. If one arrives at that conclusion then they are judging the other person for the behaviors that they express as being bad. You can judge those ‘behaviors’ as being bad but NOT the person for using them. People sometimes act badly, when in reality, they are not bad! They are humans expressing their compounded stresses that they experience in their lives.

Being devoted to one’s religion is admirable, but when one tries to impose their religious tenets upon another who doesn’t believe what they believe, then that in itself is profane. It is always easy to point the finger at another, but, as the saying goes, three of your remaining fingers are pointing right back at you. Those fingers should always remind you that your perspective is just that; your perspective. When you walk a mile in the other guy’s shoes you might understand more of why they look and speak of things the way they do. That, in itself, it the beginning of understanding the relationship the other person has with their inner divinity. If they curse and use profanity it is because they are expressing their angst and emotional conviction about a particular subject and not necessarily an irreverence of God.

When anyone jumps to that conclusion, it reveals that their ego is elevating itself to Godhood and that their sense of superiority is more important than understanding the other individual. A person’s values reveal just what is important to them. If their values are based on justifiable circumstances, then they become a part of their daily existence. If their values are based on the ongoing judgment of others, then they reveal that their egos are more in command of their expressions than the Spirit of God. What is truly profane? The judgment of your ego over what someone else values and expresses in their lives. If someone else’s behaviors are aberrant, it is justifiable. If their behaviors are within the established social mores then they are not justifiable.

The bottom line is that if you do not like the expression of profanity, examine why you feel that way. If you don’t like it, then remove yourself from it but don’t judge others for their right to express themselves. If you do like it, then you are truly f***ked! Just joking! If you want others to respect your ability to communicate then get the corn cob out of your ass. Stop being so prudish and judgmental and see how much more you can learn. Open your heart to understanding more than judgment and you will see that there is more that you can learn, experience and value than you’ve ever considered before. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

‎The War on Drugs is a complete and utter farce! Create a straw man and attack his character, influence and bias. Swell up the masses to defend themselves against the straw man. "Set him on fire and watch him burn!" This is supposed to vindicate who? Either the fear of the masses or the straw man; who feels NOTHING! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you allow God to work through you is when everything will change for the better. Why? Because you stop trying to use your willpower and ego to steer. You become what you were created to be by simply allowing, not trying. Allow it, don't resist it. Allow it. Allow it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Do you sense spirits and ghosts around you trying to scare you and drive you away? Those phantoms are created by your ego crying for dominance and submission of your spirit. Listen to the still small voice of the Divine within and they will disappear. God is your friend, your guide and your Creator. Nothing can come between you and the Spirit of God but your own ego when you allow it to win. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Silence is golden. Peace is wonderful. Gratitude is uplifting! Give to others what you desire the most and the floodgates of heaven will open and bathe you with Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

God has laid down the rules of life and we can observe them in nature. When we go against the grain of natural order we pay the consequences. When we share Divine love we live in Divine blessings. It is our choice to either follow the rules or buck the system. Each has its consequences. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
