THE ONE THING LEFT THAT
IS HUMANLY PERSONAL

In this modern day world we have many conveniences that are extensions of our God given senses. Eyeglasses, contacts, binoculars, telescopes and visual media are all extensions of our eyes. Cell phones, telephones, microphones, speakers, music and voice are all extensions of our ears.

The myriad of fragrances available to sweeten the body or the air are extensions of our olfactory glands. The culinary masters keep concocting new combinations of food and drink that enthrall our taste buds.

Our arms are extended by machinery from simple tools to computers. Our legs are extended by bicycles and workout gear. Our arms, legs, eyes and ears operate motor vehicles, ships and aircraft; which are all extensions of our bodies.

The only sense that we haven’t technologically extended has been our sense of touch. We cannot emulate or extend the feeling of someone’s fingers moving slowly along our inner forearm, a gentle kiss on the nape of the neck, holding another’s hand, embracing them with a hug or making love with your partner. This is the only sense we have left that is truly humanly personal.

All of our other senses are repeatedly stimulated, over stimulated and ultimately desensitized due to constant bombardment. Our sense of touch can be over stimulated but it cannot be extended with a device. The touch of your lover, your parent, your pet or your friend has a healing and therapeutic effect upon your inner being.

Be willing to experience the beauty of being touched and touching someone you love. It is the last vestige of humanity that you will ever have and that can never be extended. It requires intimate contact and helps develop our inner senses that truly fill our lives with peace. Reach out and touch nature, someone, or even God. Feel the waves of extending your love growing and expanding from your touch. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE ART OF
LIVING

Knowledge comes from information that is observed, collated and understood. Wisdom comes from knowledge that is understood, utilized and released. Science provides a methodology of hypothesizing, experimenting and concluding that results in furthering our knowledge base. Wisdom provides an understanding of what to do with this knowledge and arrives when we simply let knowledge go.

What do we mean by letting it go? Practiced knowledge yields results that can easily be replicated. Logic and practice determine specific outcomes from repeated procedures. By rote we can re-create results similar to what has been yielded in the past. But what about winging it? What about following intuitive impulses in co-creation? When scientific procedure reveals consistent results, how do we break free from this mold?

Enlightened individuals develop science into art. What is art? Art is “the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance” [dictionary.com]. It is taking the aesthetics of natural order and bringing them into Divine order. It is the acceptance and practice of the knowledge of co-creation with the wisdom of understanding its purpose. It is the ability to allow, respect and trust in one’s ability to co-create Divine order to affect natural order.

Divine recognition is the starting point. When one humbles itself to the inner presence of the Divine wisdom starts to grow and expand. As it does, we learn to allow the Divine to work through us to co-create our reality. As we experience the manifestation of our co-creations we develop a deep respect for the process and the love of the Divine. This leads to an ongoing trust in the relationship between the ‘created’ and the ‘Creator’.

Always remember that art is the ability to take images from the causal realm and co-create them in the physical realm. The process can be memorized by the following acronym:

A – Allowance of the Divine to co-create and manifest ‘through’ us.

R – Respect for the process and abundance of Divine love.

T – Trust in the relationship between the ego self and the Divine SELF.

There is an ART to living in Divine abundance. It is learning, practicing and developing knowledge while understanding ‘how’ to use that knowledge for the betterment of all. This is when Divine wisdom blossoms from Divine grace and blesses your awareness with the allowance of complete health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

We are here to co-create a masterpiece of peace, joy and understanding of each other through the allowance, respect and complete trust in Divine love. Anything else is a distraction to that higher Divine purpose that we collectively share. Stay focused and convert scientific principles into the art of masterful co-creation by letting go of what you don’t need in your life and keeping what you do need to grow and expand into your Divine purpose in Divine order. It is up to you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LAWS OF ACTION
AND REACTION

What are the laws of action and reaction? If something is a law it expresses the same results each and every time. The Law of Gravity always works but it also allows actions that can ‘overcome’ its effect on perceived ‘objects’. As with all things in a perceived dualistic reality, there are two expressions of every perceived action.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” That simply means that if an object moves in a direction through a medium and ‘interacts’ with another object, the transference of energy at the point of interaction will create an equal amount of force to the other object it interacts with and it will ‘force’ it to move in the opposite direction from where the force was applied on the secondary object. It means that forces ‘always’ come in pairs.

The Law of Reaction states that whatever you push against or resist will create the opposite results that you seek. The Law of Pro-Action states that whatever you don’t resist and simply allow will create the same results that you seek. Confused? Well, let’s look at it another way.

If you want to obtain more money and you resist how others use money for their own selfish gains, you will get the opposite of what you desire; meaning that you will NOT get money. If you want to obtain more money and you allow yourself to use money for the mutual benefit of everyone, you will get the same result; meaning that you will get more money to accomplish what you ALLOW!

Reacting is resisting and pro-acting is allowing. It is a choice to either push against something or allow what you desire to be born. These laws work the same way every time whether you observe and agree with it or not. There is no variance only your ‘perception’ of variance.

Since you are immersed in the medium of the transference of energy you are limited by the constraints of the medium physically. However, it is in your ability to bridge your thoughts of evaluation, discernment and judgment in your mind with the feelings of assuredness, confidence and fulfillment in your heart that actually moves Divine order to ‘arrange’ natural order to the fulfillment of your Divine desires.

Stop resisting what you don’t want and allow what you do want. You will be moved by the current of the stream toward the complete actualization of your Divine purpose in Divine order. It is up to you and you alone to follow the course of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE FIELD OF SEPARATION

Separation is the field in which the ego plays. Without good and bad, black and white and higher and lower, the ego has NO power to influence our decisions. The ego has three levels of power that it uses to manage our self-survival at all costs: control, domination and manipulation.

What is control? It is a perception that we need to restrain or direct someone or something to manifest our desired result because there are too many variables that could change our desired outcome. It is the first level of the ego’s expressed power that sneaks in under the guise of self-survival.

The next level of the ego’s expressed power is to dominate someone or something in order to manage their behaviors to ensure our desired outcome. What is domination? It is the state where we decide that we have the knowledge to rule over or govern events, circumstances, situations, occurrences and people. We feel that we have more value than someone else and we now begin to feel we are superior to others. This mindset leads to the next level of the ego’s expressed power; manipulation.

Manipulation is the state where we feel we have superior knowledge and understanding. As a result, we feel we have the right to skillfully manage and influence the thoughts, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors of others by supplying them with the information we need for them to fulfill our desired outcome. It is where our agenda is more important than the truth.

The ego now has reinforced itself enough to where it looks to itself as the master of its own destiny; it becomes its own God. How many successful people and governmental leaders have you seen that exemplify these characteristics? The world is full of people that are full of themselves and feel they have ‘THE’ way for everyone to live in order to fulfill their selfish desires.

Stop placating the selfish desires of the ego and move towards Oneness with the Spirit of God within. Stop feeling threatened by everything that occurs in your environment! Each and every time that you doubt, worry about or fear the outcome of events, circumstances, situations, occurrences and the behaviors of people, you give an energy boost to your ego. By choosing ‘the dark side’ you are giving your true power away to a construct of your being that has one job and one job alone; your self-survival!

It is not the be all and end all of your whole life. It is an integral part of it that you need to protect yourself from expressions in your environment that could ‘potentially’ harm you; not ‘definitely’ harm you! Trusting completely in the Spirit of God to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order is the best way to check the ego’s perceived ability to control, dominate and manipulate everything in your environment.

It naturally occurs when you make the time each and every day to go within in deep meditation to commune with the Divine. Without these regular and consistent ‘dates with the Divine’ we naturally feel overcome with the stresses of the world. Develop your romance with your Creator each and every day. Look forward to those times of divine communication and they will bathe you with the Divine perspective that what you ‘cannot’ control is the greatest blessing of all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE BEST OR THE REST

Are you expecting the best, or are you expecting the rest? What does this mean? Is any form of expectation being selfish? Or is the right kind of expectation what is required to co-create our realities? When we expect the best we have to decide the following: Is it what is best for us or is it what is best for all concerned? The best is defined as being of the highest quality, excellence, or the most advantageous. But advantageous to whom? Oneself or everyone?

When we learn how to share Divine love effectively we learn that what we desire the most within we experience when we give it away to others. We seek the best in our world by helping others experience the best in their lives. Expecting the best for all concerned IS the sharing of Divine love.

But what about the rest? The rest in this context would be the balance, remainder or what is left over after you perform an act of kindness toward another being. Do you share love with someone ‘expecting’ their love in return? Do you perform acts of kindness toward others to receive recognition or acclaim from others?

Are you sharing love because you are expecting to get ‘something’ back for your ‘divine’ efforts? Yeshua pointed this out when he said that those who pray in public already have their reward. When you expect the ‘rest’ you are acting from the ego and NOT the Spirit of God. Yeshua said to pray in your closet, one on one with the Divine, and you will be blessed with the ‘best’. The best is an understanding of how to share Divine love with all of creation.

Expecting the best to occur for all is co-creating Divine love in your corner of the omniverse. This creates a ripple effect which spreads Divine love to every corner of the omniverse. Expecting the ‘rest’ creates a restriction of Divine love that is known as selfishness. It is the ‘me’ factor. What’s in it for me? How do my actions benefit me and me alone? Why aren’t people looking to me for the correct answers?

Anytime we restrict the flow of Divine love into a selfish flow of energy we are co-creating experiences that will teach us that we aren’t all that. If we continually experience these results we are not truly living from the Spirit of God; for in living in Divine love we completely trust in the Divine to light our paths and guide us into beautiful experiences filled with complete and utter fulfillment.

Expectation is the process by which we manifest our desires into reality; whether expecting the best or the rest. Our true Divine desires are directly from the Divine; they are the seeds of greatness planted in our hearts. Our false ego desires, or yearnings, are temporal in nature and geared toward self-satisfaction only.

Expectation of Divine desires is a good thing; expectation of selfish yearnings is not. The Buddha taught the difference between Divine ‘expectations’ and ego ‘expectations’; yet many have misunderstood his teachings as saying that all expectations are bad.

When you ‘expect’ the sharing of Divine love and live in Divine order fulfilling your Divine purpose you are, in essence, living in Divine ‘allowance’. When you expect the accolades, recognition and reciprocation of others you are, in essence, living in the ego’s ‘resistance’. Your fulfillment is based on what others have to say and not what the Divine has freely given to you in your heart through Divine grace.

Understand the separation of expectation into the realms of allowance and resistance by integrating your perceptions into what is the best for ALL concerned. This way, you limit the ego’s yearnings for control, domination and manipulation of others into recognizing and revering itself.

Put the focus on what leads to the growth and expansion of all and you will be sharing Divine love and co-creating a reality in which you will prosper along with others. Expect health, wealth, prosperity and abundance for ALL and it will be yours as well. It is in what you project into your corner of the omniverse that affects all else. When you learn this and live it, you begin to see that not only are we all connected, but our expectation of Divine love is the key to allowing it to define our very lives. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE CHARACTER OF EVIL

According to many cultures, the negative being known as the Devil has many characteristics. He is identified mostly as a male type of being who is a liar, a tempter, a thief, an adversary, a murderer, a sower of discord and a destroyer of all that is good. He is further described as cunning, deceitful, totally evil, wicked, cowardly, without principles, rebellious, fierce, cruel and proud.

In Christianity, the devil, or Satan (Lucifer), can be further described in the following manner: He was created by God, and not equal to God (Prov 16:4); defies God and despises truth (John 8:44); was given limited power (Job 1:8-12); commands a hierarchy of demons (Eph. 6:10-12); masquerades as "an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14-15); came to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10); lost access to faithful, redeemed Christians (John 10:2-15, Gal. 2:20, 1 John 4:4); rules the masses outside God’s protection (Eph. 2:1-3); tries to hide the actual truth about our God (2 Cor. 4:3-4); twists scriptures to fit his purposes (Gen. 3:1-5); offers counterfeit promises he can't fulfill (Gen. 3:4-5); always seeks an "opportune time" to tempt us (Luke 4:13). The devil has strategies to fool us into believing we are doing ‘God’s work’, when in fact, we are following the dictums of his influence through our own egos. These strategies are temptation, lies & half-truths, deception, intimidation, fear, theft and murder.
If we want to make an acronym of the Devil, we could make it to help understand his characteristics more fully: The Devil is Deceitful, Evil, Vain, Iniquitous and a Liar.

The Devil is Deceitful by using ‘turnarounds’ and trying to make us think that evil is good and good is evil. He makes it a pleasure to seek out what is wrong for us and others and makes it glamorous. He lures us in with his trap of hedonism to trick us into obeying his purpose without us even realizing it.

The Devil is Evil and immoral because good is his adversary. He wants everyone to be like him because he has fallen from the grace of God. All to prove to his ego that he was right and God was wrong. Fat chance in that happening!

The Devil is Vain and has no real value to anyone unless they be led by their own egos and hedonistic desires. The reward for courting evil is death. Death to the inner growth and expansion of all. His vanity is in the fact that he wants us to fail like he did!

The Devil is Iniquitous because he chooses to live outside of the law of God. He uses the ignorance of others to convince them of his veracity and hides his violations of the law from scrutiny as much as he can. He revels in injustice and uses the systems of the world to profit the ruthless leaders and aspirants of leadership. He operates in unfairness by appearing to be righteous to all humans but within he is full of hypocrisy and iniquity (Matt. 23:28).

The Devil is a Liar and falsifier of the truth. He uses existing conditions to paint an alternative explanation and distract others from seeing what he is really doing. He promises the best to all by stating worthless platitudes and delivering the worst to reinforce those unscrupulous demons that are under his control. He speaks in his native language of lies and always seems plausible. The fact is that the Devil has NOTHING to do with the truth. There is no truth in him and there never will be. However, he will use whatever mechanism available to distract and convince others of his veracity.

Cast out the devils in the Republican caucuses and elect a Democratic Congress. Let’s move forward into a progressive future where we all pay our fair share and we all respect each other for our God given abilities.

Cast down the evil ones and let them gnash their teeth at each other in the Lake of Fire. Peace and blessings to all of you who love the truth and choose to live in love and respect for all of humankind. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE END OF THE WORLD

In honor of all of the wacked out preachers who predict the end of the world and how we must prepare for the supposed last day of the earth as we know it, I decided to bring forth the facts and evaluate ‘The Rapture’. Rapture means a state of ecstatic joy or delight; a joyful ecstasy. In Buddhism rapture is the Pali word Piti. Piti is a very specific joy associated with a state of deep tranquility. In the Christian belief system it is the carrying of a person to another place or sphere of existence; in other words, heaven. But is this belief scripturally sound? Are the references to ‘The Rapture’ figurative or literal? Or were they just a means to keep people focused on righteous behavior instead of the grace of God?

The first reference to ‘The Rapture’ in the NT is in Matthew: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only (Mat 24:36). But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (Mat 24:37). For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe (Noah) entered into the ark (Mat 24:38). And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (Mat 24:39). Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left (Mat 24:40). Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left (Mat 24:41). Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come (Mat 24:42). But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up (Mat 24:43). Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh (Mat 24:44). Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? (Mat 24:45). Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing (Mat 24:46).

In this passage emphasis is put on the fact that no man or angel knows when this ‘event’ will occur. The warnings came for the people during Noah’s time yet they failed to heed them and were caught off guard by the flood. Is the coming of the Son of man literal or figurative? Will people literally be snatched away from each other? Again it is stated that we will NOT know the hour. If we did know, wouldn’t we be watchful and righteous? A faithful and wise person is one whom the Lord makes ruler over his own spirit; one whom God meets his needs. One who controls the needs, wants, desires and expectations of the ego over the presence, knowledge, power and creativity of the Spirit of God. In this so-called ‘Rapture’, we are blessed when we actualize our purpose in fulfilling the desires which God has planted in our hearts. This is what makes us a faithful and wise servant.

The second reference to ‘The Rapture’ in the NT is in Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep (1Th 4:15). For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (1Th 4:16). Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1Th 4:17).

Is this a literal or figurative reference? Let’s consider the source. In several instances the words of Paul are contradictory to the words and behaviors of Jesus. Yet, the Christian religion exalts the words of Paul as being ‘gospel’. Paul’s eloquence in writing is unparalleled. His deep emotional commitment to the revelations of Jesus is most astounding yet he usually manages to put his own ‘twist’ on things. Are we literally going to be ‘raptured’ in the air and up in the clouds? Or are we simply going to understand the ways of selfishness enough to turn them over to the Spirit of God? Are the dead in their graves going to rise up and walk again? Or are the dead in ‘spirit’ going to awaken to the needs, wants, desires and expectations of others as they are revealed through their Divine purpose?

I have raised these questions for you to decide. From the evidence I have discerned that this ‘Rapture’ is more figurative than literal. When we ‘grow up’ in our faith we stop trying to sensationalize and predict what Christ has said we will not know. We don’t spend millions on handouts, billboards, bus wraps and press coverage to gain the attention of non-believers. We simply live in a state of trusting God to bless us with the grace he has promised us. We allow His Spirit to guide our lives into health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. And aren’t these states worthy of our rapture? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE FINER THINGS

When you get up each morning do you tell yourself that there is time to get the things done that you want to do? Do you procrastinate important steps in your life because you assure yourself that you have time? Do you say, “Why do today what I can put off until tomorrow?”

We have an illusion of time and that we are somehow in control of the perception of it. In Steve Winwood’s song “The Finer Things” we see just where we experience the illusion of time. While we ‘have’ the time we need to ‘go out and feel everything’. As Winwood says ‘time is a river rolling into nowhere’. Where is nowhere? Is it just a construct of something we don’t understand? Winwood then says “We must live while we can and we’ll drink our cup of laughter.”

We all choose to experience life as we see it and have the opportunities to live, laugh and love. Do we experience the finer things of life? Do we choose to seek them or do we feel that they are ‘separate’ from us? Are they just dreams or can we make them reality? Winwood states that “the finer things keep shining through, the way my soul gets lost in you”. When we get lost in the love of another we truly experience the ‘finer things’ in life. We feel them inside and know “the golden dance life could be.”

We experience the joy, peace, understanding and love that we have in our connection with all of life. Experience the ‘finer things’ in life by letting go of any and all ‘beliefs’ that constrict your full experience of the joys of life. Be the divine being you are and come to know that the finer things are there with you right now; deep inside of you when you ‘connect’ with whom and what you truly are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE CHOICE IS CLEAR

When you live from the truth of your inner self you are living in Divine love blessing you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

When you live from the yearnings of your ego you worry about disease and infirmity, selfishness and doubt, fear over faith and the acceptance of lack and limitation as the way it is.

The choice is clear! What choice are you making? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE END OF THE
WORLD REVISITED

Some have sincerely voiced their concerns over the recent calamities occurring in the world. I have heard from others the following: It’s what Nostradamus said; it’s the Revelation; it’s the Mayan prophecy of 2012. According to some scholars, the Earth will come to an end December 21, 2012. Hogwash!!!

The Earth will come into alignment with the galactic plane which occurs every 26,000 years. For 8 minutes total, we will receive a greater than average pull for the Super Massive Black Hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. After the 8 minutes of excessive pull, this is what will happen: the earth just keep doing what it has been doing for millions of years before we graced it with our presence.

We, as a civilization, have become so comfortable in our arrogance of our supposed dominion over the earth. Here’s a FACT; the earth survived much longer than we have even existed. We have been around for about 10,000 years give or take a few thousand years. Yet, in our ‘dominion’ over the earth we have gutted, raped and pillaged it as well as utilized its natural order to grow and expand. We have used and abused our Mother Earth to the point that it has reacted with changes that we simply don’t want to face.

Yet, it existed and SURVIVED through many cataclysmic changes before we even existed on this planet. What does that say? To me, no matter what ‘prophecies’, ‘predictions’ or ‘conclusions’ that anyone claims are transpiring are not as valid as the scientific research that reveals our current dilemma of climate change. Our perspective of the timeline of this earth is like comparing a step to walking around the globe several thousand times. We have been here for a small slice of the time as the earth has existed.

Yet when faced with the FACTS supporting climate change (‘global warming’) many deny the facts in favor of a myopic viewpoint that supports human arrogance. The collective egos of the nay-sayers reinforce and supply the corporate news media to reveal to us what ‘they’ want us to know and NOT what the facts are.

Be the being that you were created to be and think for yourself. Gather the facts, research the facts and come to informed decisions based on the facts. Don’t buy into someone else’s conclusions based on ‘their’ facts. Use the brain that God has given you and THINK! If what you think about confuses you or makes you feel uncomfortable then ask God to guide your steps and lead you to the truth. His infinite spirit always points the way to the best solution for all concerned. But some will still live in fear and deny the truth that is being revealed all around them.

Many people talk about the end times; whether it be the Mayan Calendar misreading or the Christian ‘second coming’. They will instill fear in many by asking the same old questions. Are your bags packed? Have you gotten your house in order? Do you need to bring cash, a change of clothes or your toothbrush? What are they referring to? The Rapture, of course. The Christian myth that is repeatedly perpetrated by so-called Biblical scholars. There is reference to such an occurrence as an allegory in the Bible but not an actual occurrence. Yet, how many preachers over the past 500 years have predicted the end of the world?

Eschatology is pure crap! It is the hope of some believers that God will recognize them for their righteous and pious behavior and elevate them above the ‘evil’ doers. It does not accept the fact that the Spirit of God is within EVERYONE. It uses separation and division to justify self-righteousness.

And why would God take rotted corpses out of the graves? It sounds like a bad Roger Corman movie about zombies. And what about those righteous who were cremated? Will the winds gather their ashes and reassemble them for their piety? Hardly. There comes a time in any belief system where the believers need to GROW UP and stop telling others from their self-constructed pulpit of ignorance what God is going to do to you when you don’t fear and obey Him. Believers need to grow up from being a child in their belief systems and embrace the love of God as revealed to their inner spirit.

The true rite of passage is when you make the transition from self-righteousness into recognizing the presence of the Spirit of God within everyone and extending love to all. This way the world of the ego comes to an end and the acceptance of God’s love reigns supreme.

Those who feel we should do nothing to respect our planet because of a belief in this 'second coming' are forgetting about those who realize that they are full of B.S. I’ll say it again! 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 up!

Don’t be a fan of eschatology. It is an egotistical assessment of naturally occurring events that have occurred over the course of the history of this planet. It sells books and movies and keeps people living in fear. Live and let live and promote growth and expansion from the singularity projection of spirit into the dualistic reflection of perception. Be perfect as God has created you to and listen to the still small voice of guidance to learn the truth, know the truth and live the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE EXPRESSION OF
DIVINE LOVE

The expression of Divine love through us can be channeled by us in many ways. Our very existence is the expression of Divine love.

How we channel that Divine love is either manifested by our mind-heartset as faith in the Divine to manifest beauty in Divine order or fear of what 'may' happen.

Our 'energy' is Divine love and since we are co-creators with the Divine we can either follow thoughts, beliefs and feelings that project Divine love (through faith) or follow thoughts, beliefs and feelings that reject Divine love (through fear). ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE FOUR MAIN
ASPECTS

My eBook "Aspects Of Reality" is a treatise about the four main aspects of humanity. The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects reveal our whole being and how we integrate into our environment. The degree to which we understand each aspect is how it will affect our being as a whole.

It has been observed by many philosophers that humans, over the course of history, have displayed many different types of behaviors. These aggregate behaviors constitute our humanity. What is humanity? It is the collective behavioral expressions of all human beings. Whether the behavior is considered bad or good, all of these expressions represent different aspects of human behavior. Aspects are qualities or characteristics of human behavior. They are based on observations of those with different perspectives. Perspectives are conclusions based on one’s viewpoint of an event, circumstance or occurrence. Viewpoints are a result of one’s individual internal chemistry and stimulus-response learning that occurs in a person’s external surroundings. The old argument of Heredity vs. Environment comes to mind where observers argue which one determines how we act. Both heredity and environment play significant roles in human behavior.

What are the aspects of humanity? They are the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual expressions or behaviors of humankind. Physical aspects represent the human body and its chemistry. We need physical sustenance in order to survive. We need air to breathe, water to drink, food to fuel our growth and exercise to provide the maintenance of our bodies. If we deprive, restrict or ignore the physical needs of our bodies, our bodies respond with chemical reactions that affect other aspects of our beings.
The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of humanity are always stimulating our brains with a cornucopia of stimulus. How we react to this stimulus is how it will affect us. Choose to pro-act by understanding that your perceptions are just copies of reality and NOT reality. We all have the capability to become better than we are by educating ourselves with the collective knowledge of all aspects of humanity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE HISTORY OF DESIRE

We hear time and time again how we need to free ourselves from desire. We are told that in order to align with the Divine we need to let all desire go. Most of this came from the teachings of the Buddha, but was this his original teaching? Was the ‘stain’ of desire the very thing we need to let go in order to know the Divine? Or was it misinterpreted by followers down through the ages?

In his article on Desire, Prabhuji Ramakrishnananda, he states the following: “According to Augustine of Hippo (354 – 430 CE), the origin of desire is found in man’s disobedience to the law of God. We may read in his famed work De Civitate Dei, or The City of God, book XIII, chapter 13: “He rejoiced in his own freedom to act perversely and disdained the service of God. Therefore he was deprived of the obedient service that the body had until then rendered to him.” Just as man disregards the will of God, the body ignores the needs of the soul. In the same way that the human being is separated, disconnected from the divine will, the mind and the body develop desires which are in conflict with the interests of the soul. As is mentioned in the New Testament, in Galatians (5:17) “Because the desire of the flesh is against the Spirit and that of the Spirit is against the flesh; and these are opposed to each other, so that you cannot do what you want.”” To read more of this click this link.

In the treatise on the Philosophy of Desire in Wikipedia.com it states the following: “In philosophy, desire has been identified as a philosophical problem since Antiquity. In Plato's The Republic, Socrates argues that individual desires must be postponed in the name of the higher ideal. Within the teachings of Buddhism, craving is thought to be the cause of all suffering. By eliminating craving, a person can attain ultimate happiness, or Nirvana. While on the path to liberation, a practitioner is advised to "generate desire" for skillful ends”.

Desire as a verb is defined as, “desire (v.) early 13c., from Old French desirrer (12c.) "wish, desire, long for," from Latin desiderare "long for, wish for; demand, expect," original sense perhaps "await what the stars will bring," from the phrase de sidere "from the stars," from sidus (genitive sideris) "heavenly body, star, constellation" (but see consider). Related: Desired; desiring.” And as a noun: “desire (n.) c.1300, from Old French desir, from desirer (see desire (v.)); sense of "lust" is first recorded mid-14c.”

Buddha referred to what we now call desire as a craving; a yearning for something outside of ourselves in order to make us feel complete. It comes from the word “Taṇhā (Pāli; Sanskrit: tṛṣṇā, also trishna) literally means "thirst," and is commonly translated as craving or desire.” In the Greek translation of human ‘cravings’ and ‘yearnings’ we see the word, ‘orexis’, which means ‘appetite’; a implied physical state that controls you until you fulfill obtaining the object of the appetite.

After the formation of the Catholic Church the word desire literally meant, (de – of) (sire – the Father). It meant that desires that you felt in your heart were ‘of the Father’; not cravings or yearnings. It wasn’t until the 15th Century that the word came to mean ‘lustful cravings’ in the Catholic Church. From that point on, many people have firmly believed that desire is something that is to be considered ‘bad’. In fact, the Therevada monks, the one’s closest to the Buddha, were charged by him to ‘generate desire’ for ‘skillful ends’. This reveals that there is a distinct difference between ‘cravings’ and ‘yearnings’ and true Divine ‘desires’.

Now in Galations 5:17, the Aramaic translation was made into the Greek and then into the Latin years later. The Aramaic translation literally reads, “For the flesh craves anything that opposes The Spirit and The Spirit craves whatever opposes the flesh, and they both are contrary one to another, lest you would be doing whatever you want” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)). If you notice, the word is ‘crave’ and not ‘desire’. The verse illustrates the ongoing contraposition to the cravings and yearnings of the ego and the Divine desires of the spirit. It is like the Buddha identified as cravings and yearnings but NOT what the word desire means. It was the later Buddhist sect of the Mahayanas that misinterpreted the meaning of desire with the meaning of craving.

Now, why would the Catholic Church change and bastardize the meaning of the word desire? What advantage would it have for the priests and leaders of the Catholic Church? It is simple. The most natural craving and yearning for humans is the drive for the sexual act of reproduction. It blinds one to their morals, it makes people do things that they would not normally do and it is contrary to what the Catholic Church had been teaching for years. It literally made the desires, which are the drive ‘of the Father’ within to create, something ‘sinful’ What better way to gain control over their constituents, dominate their thoughts with fear and manipulate their very existence by placing themselves as the middle men between people and God. They originally did this when the Council of Nicea tossed out the Gnostic Gospels in 325 C.E.

Why did Constantine and his priests remove the Gnostic gospels? Because they taught that the Divine is WITHIN you and that you don’t have to go to a priest or anyone else for your ‘salvation’. This is the TRUTH of what Yeshua taught. Desires literally mean the seeds of your Divine purpose that the Divine planted in your heart to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order. Desire is therefore a GOOD thing. Desire from within is the Divine giving you a gift that ‘primes the pump’ of creation.

When you get over your ego and start to ‘expect’ the fulfillment of your Divine desires is when the wheels are put into motion through Divine order. Divine order then affects natural order with the ‘impetus’ of manifestation that ultimately leads to the fulfillment of creation of your Divine purpose. Desire is the seed, expectation is the sustenance and growth of desire and allowance is the manifestor of desire.

Don’t listen to those who don’t understand the true meanings of these words. Words create vibrations and the entire omniverse is vibrating and aligning your ‘point of attraction’ which is your predominant vibration, with what you project into the perceived dualistic reality. The omniverse reflects what you project and if you minimize your Divine desires and not your cravings and yearnings, you will never become what the Divine created you to be.

Be ye therefore perfect and expect your Divine desires to manifest through you allowing the Divine to create them in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE HOLY GHOST?

What did it mean when Jesus said that the Father would send a ‘Comforter’ in his name and teach us all things and help us remember the lessons that Christ taught us? Was it a separate spirit that was imposed on us or was it simply an awareness of the spirit within us that we had not previously known?

In John 14:26, the King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) states, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” From the original texts to our common day language of Plain English (without the intermediary Koine Greek to Latin translations) it refers to the ‘Comforter’ as the ‘Redeemer’: “But he, The Redeemer of the accursed (the Comforter), The Spirit of Holiness (the Holy Ghost), whom my Father sends in my name, he will teach you all things and he will remind you of everything whatsoever I have told you” ~Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010).

What is a ‘Redeemer’? The act of redeeming is to buy back, pay off, clear a debt, recover, exchange or convert something of value to another to cover a perceived debt of service. Who is the Redeemer? It is the Spirit of God within each and every one of us that connects to our ‘Christ consciousness’. What is our Christ consciousness? It is the knowing of the Spirit of God within! Before Christ made us aware of this FACT we did not know our ‘connection’ to spirit.

The ‘Holy Spirit’ is NOT a separate spirit; it IS the Spirit of God!!! It is the Spirit of Holiness as the Comforter (Redeemer). In John 16:7, the King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) states, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” In the Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010) it states, ““I tell you the truth: it is beneficial for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Redeemer of the accursed (the Comforter) will not come to you, but if I depart I shall send him to you.”

What does this mean? It clearly means that Jesus had to die to redeem us from our lack of knowing that we are already ONE with God! Without his death we would be fixated on Jesus the man and not the Christ within! The accursed are those who have no knowledge that God is within or don’t believe that there is a God at all. They exist in a vacuum of physical conditions, emotional reactions, mental hyperbole and spiritual vacuousness. They need to be ‘reminded’ of the words of Christ and the awakening of each individual to the Spirit of God within. Yet many churches preach sin, hellfire and brimstone instead of the simplicity of ‘letting go’ of your ego to allow the Spirit of God to work THROUGH you.

Why? Because they have postured themselves as middlemen between you and God. They have to assert and defend their value at your expense! Don’t buy into the false concepts of sin and hell. They are distractions from the pure, true love of the Divine! Agape is the ‘unconditional love’ of God. He does not HATE sin as is so often preached by Pauline proponents who are espousing a FALSE gospel of Jesus Christ. Read the RED and hear Christ’s words. That is ALL you need. Not ANYONE else’s perceptions of his words but your understanding of his words from the Spirit of God within YOU!!!

The Trinity of spirits is a ‘made up’ concept by the Catholic Church. There is only ONE spirit; the Spirit of God. The alpha and omega of all of life. Stop believing lies and made up concepts and seek the truth within you RIGHT NOW! It is there when your heart is pure and focused on the Spirit of God within. Peace and blessings to all of you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE KEYBOARD
OF LIFE

When I got up this morning I was thinking about writing a piece on how our computers were originally designed to emulate our subconscious minds. I was going through the commands in my head and correlating them with the keys on the keyboard. I poured myself a cup of Dark Roast Martinsens jave and turned on the TV and Joel Osteen was on. He was speaking about how we are like computer software and we need to learn to delete any negativity in what people say to us about our aspirations. He said that words are like seeds that if repeated and accepted take root in our minds and grow into limitations. How true.

What was interesting to me was the synchronicity of my inspiration and his sermon. Most of us use the Windows operating system and I will use the keyboard analogies in relation to Windows. Sorry, Mac users, your commands might be slightly different. When we type our thoughts on the computer keyboard we hit letters that correspond to the words that are coming to the forefront of our minds.

We organize these thoughts into phrases, sentences and paragraphs to relay a story, illustrate a point or simply elaborate on a topic. When we are done we save the file, run spell/grammar check, reread the essay and resave the file. We then either file it away or we share it with others. When we finish a paragraph we hit enter to move onto the next thought or point. We mostly type in lower case and we capitalize the beginning of sentences or titles with upper case. Some people type everything in upper case and that is generally interpreted as either yelling or emphasizing.

Let’s look at the lower case as our lower selves and the upper case as our higher selves. We spend most of our time with our lower selves and when we start a new thought or direction we emphasize their beginnings with our higher selves. We have a shift key that allows us to change from lower case to upper case in a sentence. The shift key allows us to jump to a new level and enter the emphasis we need to illustrate our thoughts. We also have the delete key. As Joel kept emphasizing in his sermon this morning we need to repeatedly hi the delete key when others impose their negativity upon us.

However, when we hit the delete key what we are deleting goes into the Recycle Bin. The Recycle Bin is where we store items that are supposedly ready for permanent deletion but aren’t permanently deleted because we might change our minds and want to use them again. It is like a buffer or virtual storage tank of ideas that we aren’t sure about in the present. When we are ready to delete these files permanently we can select the command, “Empty Recycle Bin”.

Too many of us are so wishy washy about what we need and don’t need we never empty our recycle bins. We hold on to things we can ‘fall back on’ in case we fail or get rejected. There is a way around this. The next time you decide to delete something that is not working for you or edifying your being, hit the shift key simultaneously with the delete key. This way, you bypass the Recycle Bin and permanently remove those undesired files or ‘thoughts, beliefs, action and behaviors’ that you no longer ‘think’ that you need.

The shift key is the key to this. Just as the shift key elevates you from your lower self (lower case) to your higher self (upper case) it provides the additional command to permanently remove the things that you don’t need to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order. You can capture any screen image that you desire by hitting the print screen key and pasting it into your document. You do this by hitting the control key and the ‘v’ key at the same time. Make your commands (v)ictorious by capturing the thoughts, beliefs, actions and behaviors that contribute to your growth and expansion and that of others.

Program these actions into one of the function keys as a macro. A macro is a set of commands that are executed simultaneously to yield a desired result. You can enter a single character or word to perform a whole series of actions when you program a function key or regular key as a macro. The four aspects of Divine communication are all macros that you can program into your ‘personal computer’.

Program yourself daily with prayer, meditation, service and fulfillment. Make the time each and every day to purge your system from the viruses of negativity, lack and limitation. Communicate with the Divine and be cleansed with Divine love. If not, you will always be hitting the control, alt and delete key to select the Task Manager and reset the programs you are running in order to access enough memory to complete your tasks at hand. Instead, just hit enter; you will surely enter into the Kingdom of Heaven within and experience all of the bounty and joy of life. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE KEY TO LIVING
A BLESSED LIFE

What is the key to living a blessed life? Is it to do, have and be what you feel you are in this world? Or is it to be at peace amid the surrounding chaos? Do we have a ‘right’ to do, have and be what we believe we are? YES!!! The key to doing what fills your spirit, having what you feel you need to have and being at peace with God, others and yourself is something quite simple. It is a power you have been given by grace and it is the expression of tone setting vibration in the co-creation of your life.

A car has an engine that provides the power to the frame and structure of the vehicle to move it forward. It has a steering wheel that affords the driver the ability to choose which direction in which to proceed. It has doors, seats and clear glass to enter the vehicle, be comfortable and focus on the direction you want to go. The car sits out in front of your house and has the ‘potential’ to go wherever you want. It will not go anywhere unless you are driving it. You cannot start the car and move forward until you put the key in the ignition, turn the engine on and put it in gear.

The key represents the ‘right’ to engage the power of the vehicle to take you where you want. But what is the ‘key’ in your life to ‘take you where you want’? What determines your movement either forward or backward in the unfolding of your life? The key has two lips, a tongue and teeth. It is your mouth! What comes out of your mouth is what sets the tone for your life. What you speak into existence is what becomes your experience. If you speak negativity, you create that state of existence in your reality. If you speak positivity, you create that state of existence in your reality.

Too simple, you might say? Think about it. How can you get anywhere if you don’t ‘expect’ to be there? If you are hungry, you get in your car, drive to the grocery store, buy some food, drive home and bring it into your house to feed your hunger. You ’expect’ to satisfy your hunger by going through the necessary steps to fulfill that expectation. If you didn’t expect this to happen, then why would you do it? Just to go through the steps? Hardly! You have a need to meet and you do what you need to do to fulfill that need!

When you speak negativity in your life you are creating the vibration of negativity and that is what you will experience. Conversely, when you speak positivity into your life THAT is what you will experience. In the Biblical allegory of creation God said: And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. ~Genesis 1:3 (New International Version (©1984)). It didn’t say “Let there be light” and there was darkness! It is clear that what we speak in our lives is the ‘key’ that starts the engine of creativity. It is the ‘spark’ of co-creation that comes from our accepted thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions AND behaviors!

Speak with the authority of co-creation by declaring and proclaiming each and every day, “I am fulfilling and manifesting my Divine purpose in Divine order and I expect to co-create health, wealth, prosperity and abundance in my life. I start each and every day with feelings of joy by centering in my inner peace and through understanding that I am an extension of Divine love. I choose my words wisely knowing that they co-create my experience of reality. When I feel the urge to express myself negatively I catch myself and choose to be silent in my inner peace. In turn, I choose to feel grateful for my experiences and stop and think about why I am experiencing them. These experiences are revealing the answers to the questions I have deep in my soul. I choose to listen to Divine guidance, put my ego in check and fulfill my Divine purpose in Divine order over everything else. I am blessed!”

By consistently making this statement we are assuming ‘control’ over our lives. We are making the choices to learn from our experiences so we can grow and expand into our Divine purposes. Remember, after we turn the key and put the car in gear we are ready to move forward or backward. When we choose our words wisely, we are ready to step on the gas! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE LOVE OF MONEY

What is the love of money? Is it that one loves the idea of money or the things that one can do with money? Or is the fact that one feels comfortable that they can do whatever they want when they want or decide to? Is it the actual love of the green stuff or is it the power that is associated with it?

When you love money more than life itself your priorities are not only misguided by your ego but the results you manifest will be tainted at best. What you put out you get. It’s as simple as that. If you value money more than people your ‘reward’ is evident. The saying, “You can’t take it with you” comes to mind.

Money, in essence, is an idea first. It is a medium that is the fuel to manifest co-creation. When you want the steam engine to go faster, you add more coal to generate more heat and steam. You burn money to accomplish ideals and principles you ‘believe’ you need to do.

But is your belief valid? Is it really something worth accomplishing? Does it add to or take away from the joy of life for yourself and others? Is it your prime focus or is it somewhere in the background locked up from any exposure to others. Those who hide their money or their financial conditions truly have something to hide. Whether it’s how much they have, what they have done with it or what they plan to do with it, the very act of hiding it reveals that their ego is afraid of the fallout of revealing what condition it has been in, what it is now and what it will be.

How you spend, save and invest your money reveals your mindset. Those who hide this are afraid of what it reveals about their true character. Take Willard ‘Mitt’ Romney. What is he hiding? Why won’t he release his tax returns according to the very standards his father set down? Why is he trying to change the focus and misrepresenting what the POTUS has said. President Obama basically stated that we are NOT islands and don’t make it on our own. He is correct. We all need each other to succeed.

Businesses use the infrastructure that was laid down by taxes paid in the past so that we could continue to thrive. But what good is that when people like Romney and Bain Capital send our jobs overseas? He lies continually to protect his already tarnished ‘image’. He is out for himself and his ‘buddies’ only. He does NOT care about you at all! If he did, he would disclose his financial dealings and take the consequences that come with it. He is a coward and a liar.

Why would anyone in their right mind want a leader who loves money more than people? Remember, the love of money is the root of all evil. Money in of and as itself is not a bad thing; what people do with it or how people hide it is. A clear statement was made last November to all of the corporations and money manipulators throughout the world. We told them that this sh*t don’t flush and we are cleaning out our pipes where the clogs are occurring; McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Ryan AND Romney. Stop bringing water to the very people who are drowning you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
