YOUR OPINION, NOT FACT!

If you believe that it doesn't make a difference if you vote or not that is your right to believe it; however, it is not your right to proclaim it as fact when that is your opinion OF an observable set of facts.

If you allow fear and suspicion to rule your mind, that is your choice and your right and I will defend your right to believe what you may.

Remember, however, what Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, "You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts." ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DILUTING THE TRUTH

The best way to dilute the truth is to deny both sides of an argument and identify the sides as each being in a conspiracy to defraud everyone else. This position is blatantly planting a seed of acrimony in order to satisfy one’s own twisted and selfish agenda.

It is their egos that have to control, dominate and manipulate what others believe in order to assert their own delusion that they have power. When the truth can be accurately tested and repeatedly validated, no spin on it can ever have any power over it.

Stop listening to those who say they know the truth and that you should listen to them. If they say this you should know that they are NOT telling you the truth. The truth stands on its own and NEVER needs someone to swear by it or spin it in their favor.

The only conspiracy that ever exists is that of the ego to point to itself as possessing a superior knowledge of the ‘real’ truth. Be ye therefore informed and not hoodwinked! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALLOWANCE OF DIVINE ORDER

Allowance of Divine order brings peace, understanding, joy and Divine love into your heart and mind.

It removes the main detriment to unfolding your Divine purpose perfectly. That detriment is FEAR!

DENYING REALITY

The real idiots are the ones who DENY what 'global warming' actually means scientifically!

Do you even realize that when we are in this type of weather that the southern hemisphere is in Summer?

Do you even realize that Australia is in the middle of a heat wave? Or do you prefer to spread bullshit and lies like the above meme states?

Get your facts straight before you put your foot in your mouth and listen to morons like this. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SECURITY IN AMBIGUITY

Ah, yes! Security in ambiguity! Please, don't confuse the American public with the facts. They are too busy escaping into TV, video games and sports to be concerned!

When your priorities are so screwed up that you only think about what you ‘believe’ you need, you are selfish, self-centered and self-aggrandizing.

Until you start thinking of yourself AND the other guy, you will end up repeating the behaviors that undo what you are ultimately trying to accomplish.

Be focused on what edifies all and NOT what just edifies your. Be an extension of Divine love and not a bottleneck of it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING BY FEAR

Those who live by fear will realize what they fear ad infinitum until they allow Divine love to flow through them and share it with all of life.

Fear is a choice we sometimes make when we are uncertain of an outcome. Doubt leads to worry and worry leads to fear.

Complete Divine trust creates ongoing certainty in your Divine purpose unfolding perfectly in Divine order.

Faith leads to trust and trust leads to fulfillment. Be that which knows more than believes and you will be living everyday in well-being.

Always choose trust over fear. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING PROOF

When you become living proof of what you think, feel and believe is when you need to examine just how you got there and just what you believe. Is it accurate or erroneous? Does it serve or hurt you and others?

If you don't examine your beliefs for veracity and test them repeatedly for validity that proves just how much you don't care about others more than how much you do.

Introspection leads to awareness and tenacious ignorance leads to the unyielding acceptance of erroneous beliefs.

Always verify and validate what occurs in your life and you will be living in honesty, displaying integrity and being forthright to you and others.

Be ye therefore yielding to the truth more than surrendering to your selfish ego! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A MESSAGE TO TROLLS

To another troll: Only a fool uses the name calling argument when being called a name because he does not have the intelligence to understand that I just summed his character up in one word; all because of his blatant ignorance and shameful behavior.

Names are a shortcut so that I don’t have to waste words by saying how ignorant, stupid, backward, idiotic, moronic or plain selfish that you seem to be.

Isn’t blockhead more efficient? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RICH IN SPIRIT!

I am rich in spirit and that alone fulfills me! The omniverse is my playground and I am grateful for it!

I live in abundance, I co-create prosperity, I transfer wealth and I live in health. I live in peace, grow in understanding, exude joy and share Divine love.

I AM blessed beyond measure! My cup runs over with blessings! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ACT OF GIVING

In the act of giving

When you don't have much

Is the joy of sharing

And the human touch.

It takes you out of your world

And into another's

By recognizing we are all

Sisters and brothers.

To deny the truth

Of knowing this feeling

Is like falling to the floor

Instead of reaching for the ceiling

We all need each other

To realize we are not a hawk, but a dove

For deep within all of us

Is the well-being of Divine love.

~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Spirituality allows what others believe to not interfere with the truth! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Happy with me by being clutter free! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who die with the least fears have been winners in life. Because the more fears we have, the less we enjoy life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Everything you need is within you right now. The same door that swings outward to the world swings inward to your spirit. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Keep gathering what others want you to hear and believe it all if you so choose. The truth is within, and until you realize that, you will NEVER find it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Mandate: a command or authorization to act in a particular way on a public issue given by the electorate to its representative: Not showing up to flick the lever is NOT a mandate. It is apathy. Not acting and expressing how you feel is NOT a mandate. A mandate only exist when an action takes place; NOT an inaction! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is in the simplicity of knowing that the truth is revealed. It is the complication of beliefs that one is confused by their own thoughts and feelings. If you believe that it is too easy to go within and know the truth, then it is so easy that it will always escape you! You decide! But do it based on inner truth and not outer beliefs. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

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

MORE THAN THEY REALIZE

When people convolute what you say to make it sound like nothing, it is in fact more than they realize!

Contorting what is truthful and obvious is what the ego does to exercise its control, domination and manipulation of what it fears will identify it for what it is; a selfish child continually trying to direct attention to itself for validation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO CHARACTER

The argument of the rights of someone who is obviously a racist should be judged by the 'content of his character' does not apply to someone who has no character because they make decisions based on lies and hatred.

In order to protect the rights of those who have no character, we have to diminish our character? Hogwash!

The absolute standard of judgment is always whether or not the truth is being implemented to contribute to the growth and development of ALL or only a select few.

Don’t be hoodwinked by fallacious arguments based on select groups of people demanding rights that divide instead of unite. Be focused on that which contributes to everyone and NOT just you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE WATER CARRIERS

As long as you continually defend the very water carriers that are drowning you I will call you out for just what you are; blind, unaware and ignorant. If you believe that I am too judgmental for saying this then take a good long look at your own heart first. Look at your deep-seated prejudices before you accuse me of using the race card.

If you cannot come up with a legitimate, truthful fact from a verifiable and reliable source that has been tested for validity more than three times, then I will dismiss what you say as being just emotional opinions based on what you ‘feel’ is true or what you want to believe is true.

I will not buy into opinions that are NOT based on reliable facts and validated conclusions. You can scream all you want into the wind and I will hear you not because I have no time to waste on ignorance, stupidity and personal agenda manifestation. I am NOT saying that I am better than you; I am saying that I seek the truth and validate its reality before I espouse an opinion and as long as you don’t do that, your opinion is not only worthless, it is damaging to you and everyone else.

If you want a better world for EVERYONE, then stop allowing your ego to fool you with its control, domination and manipulation of the facts into opinions based on pre-supposed beliefs instead of verifiable and validated facts or Divine knowing. Anything else is pure, unadulterated BULLSHIT and I for one do not like its smell. If you cannot grow up and see things for what they are and how we are all being influenced by liars and control freaks, no one can help you; only you can do this on your own when you have a genuine desire to KNOW the truth and live from it.

Don’t piss on me and tell me it’s raining; I will call you out for the deception you are trying to perpetrate to satisfy your ego. Go in peace and learn to be fair, honest and forthright with the truth before you stand on a soapbox declaring what it is without even doing the work to verify and validate it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FLIPPING THE BIRD

Flipping the bird at those who poison us with rhetoric, innuendo and outright lies is generating a negative toward a negative; in other words, resisting that which we believe is harming us.

Why not allow it to be and seek the change from within? Oh, that's right, it's much easier to yell outward than to go inward! Self-control starts with self-realization.

Listening to the rants of others might wake you up, but only you can get out of bed! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REFUSING TO CHOOSE

In regard to the choices of Conservative Republicans and Liberal Democrats and those who argue that they are one and the same:

Only a fool refuses to choose the lesser of two apparent evils and fosters inaction as a road to agenda fulfillment.

A wise person chooses that which supports growth and expansion over that which debilitates and imprisons. Wake up people to the world around you.

Your inaction and lack of participation is the cause of your problems. Perhaps someday you will see that; hopefully when it is not too late! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONSULTATION
Consultation with Dr. Dean

INACTION

When you make inaction concerning critical issues a result of your erroneous beliefs, you have shot yourself in your foot. Why? Because you have fooled yourself into believing instead of truly knowing. When you operate from belief it is your ego, a construct of certain reptilian processes in your brain, that ‘chooses’ to act or inact based on the reflections of reality it observes and perceives as being real. All perceptions in your brain, in actuality, are ‘copies’ of reality and NOT reality itself.

These perceptions are the result of observations being filtered through your belief system and then judged as being true and valid; for YOU and you alone! If observation is filtered through any erroneous beliefs it becomes a tainted perception and not a valid one. Remember, beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts that you accept as true and get programmed into your subconscious mind. Truth can be established by one, yet validity requires shared truth. If what you believe does not align with the understanding and experiences of others then it is truth without validity.

When 67% in 2014 and 47% in 2016 of the American electorate consciously chooses to not vote because they either believe that their vote doesn’t count or that both sides are the same, they are making excuses to defend ‘their’ truth and dismissing its validity with others. It is a selfish act of the ego; no more, no less. Stop allowing erroneous beliefs to determine your individual state of affairs or that of others. Get off of your ever-widening ass and go the library to investigate the truth and test its validity.

Stop going from one site to another looking for evidence to back up your skewed perceptions of reality in order to fulfill a selfish agenda. Your inaction is undermining your individual divinity; whether you realize it or not. Lift yourself above the din of chatter and chaos and seek out the truth for yourself. Be accountable and responsible for that which edifies your spiritual desires and NOT that which satisfies your ego’s yearnings. Be that which you truly are more than that which you ‘believe’ you are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DISCOVERING
THE TRUTH

How do you discover the truth? Do you blindly accept what others tell you is the truth without testing its veracity and validating its occurrences? Or do you research it and ferret out what it is actually revealing?

There are two types of analysis in regard to ferreting out the truth and standing on firm ground; objective and subjective.

In an objective analysis, you primarily use your physical observations of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of yourself and others to evaluate them with the mental processes of logic and reason. You effectively observe things ‘as they are’ without allowing your emotional perceptions to color them with personal agenda manifestation. In other words, you describe what you have observed without attaching any emotion to it whatsoever.

In a subjective analysis, you either emotionally color what you have observed by using the benchmark of whether or not it affects your survival; or you spiritually color your observations as to whether or not they beneficially or detrimentally affect the growth and expansion of yourself AND others.

Objective Analysis – Physical Observation and Mental Evaluation

Objective analysis is based on observation of the facts and subjective analysis is filtered through your belief system to determine its relevance to ability to function effectively in your world and develop ‘opinions’ about it. In order to understand the truth and how it pertains to your ongoing existence, you need to subject the apparent truth to a verification of its veracity and a testing of its validity. Logic affords you the tools to do so. In logic there are primarily two forms of arriving at ‘logical’ conclusions; deductive logic and inductive logic.

Generally speaking, deductive logic is performed by stating general premises and arriving at specific conclusions. Premises are “propositions supporting or helping to support a conclusion [dictionary.com].” Conclusions are “propositions concluded or inferred from the premises of an argument [dictionary.com].” In other words the premises are the observed facts and the conclusions are the result of the objective interaction of the observed facts WITHOUT any coloring of the conclusions by any type of subjective analysis.

In inductive logic, generally speaking, specific premises are stated in order to arrive at general conclusions. These two forms are generally sufficient to verify the veracity of any event, occurrence, situation, circumstance or the behaviors of objects and people. However, if something occurs only once under certain conditions, it might not occur again under different conditions. This is why it is necessary to continually test its validity under varying conditions.

Science utilizes these techniques in what is called the hypothetico-inductive method where an experimenter designs an experiment under specified conditions; states what they hypothesize ‘will’ happen; conducts the experiment several times; evaluates the results of the experiment into conclusions; develops a theory based on the conditions of the experiment.

Logicians formulate premises to derive conclusions in what is called a syllogism. A syllogism is “an argument the conclusion of which is supported by two premises, of which one (major premise) contains the term (major term) that is the predicate of the conclusion, and the other (minor premise) contains the term (minor term) that is the subject of the conclusion; common to both premises is a term (middle term) that is excluded from the conclusion. A typical form is “All A is C; all B is A; therefore all B is C [dictionary.com].” For example, a deductive logic syllogism would state the following:

Premises:

1. The Sun is shining.
2. It is warm.

Conclusion: It is warm because the Sun is shining.

“Valid deductive arguments are where the premises logically entail the conclusion and where such entailment means that the truth of the premises provides a guarantee of the truth of the conclusion (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).”

The most recognizable figure to utilize deductive logic was Sherlock Holmes. Holmes would discover a burning cigarette with lipstick on it when he arrived at the crime scene. He would deduce that the killer left within minutes before he arrived and was a woman. Pretty good deduction based on the facts. But was it valid? Most of the time it was. But what if the killer was a man who put on lipstick to trick the authorities? The first part of the conclusion was correct but the second part could be called faulty reasoning. Most of the time it wouldn’t be, but in this particular case it was.

Our egos are like the man who was wearing lipstick. It often tricks us into believing that our course of action is correct. It is to the ego, because it is concerned with self-preservation and survival. But in reality, it swayed the facts in order to convince others that it was real. The ego is the main reason people fool themselves every day.

Deductive Logic in its simplest form results in a set of general facts (premises) being deduced to a specific conclusion. A scientist can deduce (derive a conclusion based on the observed facts and logical assumptions) a conclusion from multiple premises:

The scientist walks out of the house and feels warmer when he walks into the yard. He goes back into the house and feels cooler. He deduces that when he walks out into the yard where the Sun is shining directly on him, that the warm feeling he gets is coming from the Sun. This is a logical deductive argument where the conclusion is assumed based on the facts.

Until the scientist measures the temperature inside the house and outside the house, the argument is true but not completely valid. If the measurement reveals that the inside temperature is 70 degrees and the outside temperature is 90 degrees, then the conclusion is more valid because it has been physically proven.

But what happens if the measuring device is inaccurate or the scientist has a fever and cannot rely on his senses to be accurate? Variables are always present when it comes to perception of the facts. Be aware of these variables when conducting any experiment!

Truth is a verified or indisputable fact that is observed by many to be an accurate analysis. Validity is the state where an experiment has been conducted with a significant sample, its premises are jointly asserted and the conclusion cannot be denied without contradiction. Contradiction is minimized only by the size and congruity of the sample data. For example, a scientist can induce (assert or establish based on a significant number of facts) a conclusion from multiple premises:

Premises:

1.         Giraffe #1 is silent.
2.         Giraffe #2 is silent.
3.         Giraffe #3 is silent.

Conclusion: All giraffes are silent.

The scientist went into the field and observed the giraffes. This is his conclusion. Is his conclusion true? Yes it is; based on his data. Is it valid? No. Why? Because he only sampled 3 giraffes! If he had sampled 100 giraffes his conclusion would be true and more valid. If the entire world population of giraffes was 50,000 and the scientist sampled all of them and drew the same conclusion, then his results are completely valid. How many times does something have to happen to us before we not only accept it as true, but we accept it as being valid? Three times? Eight times? Once?

Things sometime appear to be true, but until we sample enough data and then draw conclusions, we cannot consider the results to be completely valid. The above process is known as Inductive Logic. Inductive Logic is a system of reasoning that extends deductive logic to less-than-certain inferences. In its simplest form it is the results in a set of specific facts (premises) being induced to a general conclusion.

Science requires multiple procedures to be performed with a critical eye in order for its findings to be valid. It requires critical thinking in order to relay valuable information. Accurate reasoning is utilizing the principles of Logic and The Law of Parsimony to draw accurate conclusions. Reasoning is the process of forming inferences and conclusions from observed facts and logical premises. Logic is the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference based on observed facts.

The Law of Parsimony states that the explanation of a thing or event is made with the fewest possible assumptions and reduced to the simplest explanation. In other words, cut out the bull, remove the rose colored glasses and view the reality; no matter how harsh you might feel it is. There are no emotions involved in thinking critically.

Science seeks to discover the truth about all things. In order to arrive there many experiments must be conducted to get closer to the truth. The results of these experiments can yield conditional truths, but also have to be tested for validity. By removing the influences of the variables of affected sensory perception, inaccurate measuring devices, ego infiltration and data fudging, you can arrive at accurate conclusions. The more accurate your conclusions are, the more accurate you can be in developing a plan to remove any apparent detriments and maximize your abilities to understand and validate the truth.

Subjective Analysis – Emotional Reaction and Spiritual Proaction

Once you have established the truth of something based on the observable facts repeatedly yielding the same or similar results (validation), these conclusions are now filtered through your belief system and you arrive at your ‘perception’ of reality. Your belief system colors what you have observed by using the benchmark of whether or not it affects your survival. Now the ego comes into play to define and ‘judge’ what is occurring and whether or not it ensures or threatens your individual survival.

The ego is a construct of the chemical processes of your reptilian brain. It is associated with ‘fight or flight’; a survival instinct programmed into your brain from ‘reactions’ to your environment. Mostly, it becomes an automatic response to what you ‘believe’ is happening more that what is actually happening.

When your survival is threatened, the ego generates feelings of fear to prevent you from doing things that threaten your ongoing survival. Your subjective analysis is based on what you need to do in order to continue to survive. When the ego is more in command than your spirit, it looks to itself as the source of its survival and the ability to thrive at the expense of others.

Outlining and implementing self-serving goals like taking advantage of others, withholding the truth to your advantage and greed become the accepted states of thriving based on one’s perceptions of their own self-survival. At this point, the truth is colored to the advantage of the ego and it will do whatever it can to manifest its self-serving agenda; including prevarication, control, domination and manipulation of the facts and others to support its selfish position.

On the flip side of the ego is the ability to ‘get out of your own head’ and understand the greater picture. By utilizing the spiritual techniques of prayer, meditation, service and the allowance of fulfillment, you can learn to rise above the din of the perceived dualistic reality by learning to go within to validate what ‘appears’ to be true. There is a collective consciousness that has arisen from all of the years of human development and it has created ongoing vibrations of thoughts and feelings that are only mitigated by the beliefs of the observers.

We have the power to choose what we believe and to act on any and all beliefs. Our awareness and practice of Spirituality ‘colors’ our observations as to whether or not they beneficially or detrimentally affect the growth and expansion of ourselves AND others. Now the spirit within comes into play to define and ‘discern’ what is occurring and whether or not it ensures or threatens our collective ability to thrive together.

The true acid test is that if something occurs that is only beneficial to you and separates you from helping others, then it is selfishly motivated and is in the realm of emotional reactions to what you ‘perceive’ is occurring. However, it something occurs that is beneficial to you AND others and unites you with helping others, then it is universally motivated and is in the realm of spiritual proactions.

The spirit guides you to plan out what you will do and it becomes an automatic response to what you ‘know’ is happening more that what your perceive is happening. When your ability to thrive is forefront, your spirit generates feelings of faith to allow you to do things that make you strive toward thriving so you can help others AND yourself concurrently.

Your subjective analysis is based on what you need to do in order to help others AND yourself to thrive and not just survive. When the spirit is more in command than your ego, it looks to the Divine within as the source of its survival and the ability to thrive with the cooperation of others.

Outlining and implementing spiritual goals like helping others in Divine service, speaking the truth for everyone’s advantage and benevolence become the accepted states of thriving based on one’s perceptions of everyone’s ability to thrive. At this point, the truth is colored to the advantage of the spirit within and it will do whatever it can to manifest its all inclusive agenda of sharing Divine love with all; including honesty, freedom, surrender and allowance of the facts and others to support its caring and supportive position.

When we utilize our objective analysis of the physical observations and mental evaluations we are using logic and reason to establish an accurate perception of the truth. When we utilize our subjective analysis we color our beliefs of what we observe more with an intuitive proaction than with an emotional reaction, we can establish an accurate validation of the truth.

Emotions color what we perceive based on our selfish yearnings where intuitions color what we perceive based on the Divine desires of our heart. The desires to live in peace; understand one another; express joy; and share Divine love everlasting! Be that which has given you life and not that which takes it away. Be ye therefore PERFECT! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

WHAT GIVES?

HOW TO AVOID PUTTING
YOUR FOOT IN YOUR MOUTH


Actually, if you follow the processes outlined here, you can most always avoid that bitter taste of dirt, germs and ridicule. Being able to discern truth from fiction comes not only for a desire for the truth, but walking the pathway to understanding it. When an event, occurrence, situation, circumstance or the behavior of objects, animals or people transpire, you should first record exactly what happened Use your cell-phone memo recorder or a pad and pen to document the event.

Describe the sub-modalities of the event with who performed it, what they did, where it happened, how did it happen, when did it happen and why you believe it happened; for what ultimate purpose. Describe what you saw, what you heard, what you smelled, how it tasted and how it touched you. Further describe the levels of what you saw - colors, brightness, contrast; what you heard - pitch, loudness, positioning; what you smelled – fragrant, sweet, pungent; what you tasted – sweet, sour, savory; how it touched you – comforting, alarming, indifferent; how it mentally stimulated you – thoughts, feelings, beliefs; how it made you feel – assured, alerted, apathetic. These impressions are from the five physical/emotional senses, the mental sense (6th sense) and the spiritual sense (7th sense). Record these observations in order to accurately determine their purpose to you and others.

Now that you have gathered and logged your data, it is time to evaluate that data by itself without attaching any personal emotion or agenda manifestation to it. Determine the answers to the following questions:

  1. Who participated in the event? Is their reputation honorable or manipulative? Are they known for relaying accurate information or skewing it to their own personal agenda? Who’s paying for this study? What will they gain by skewing the data and conclusions in their favor? Follow the money and you will be made aware of what is exactly going on.
  2. What is it that the ‘who’ wants you to believe about the event? Did it occur naturally or was it contrived to convince others of their veracity? Was it setup to unfold in such a way as to gain others’ trust and have them jump on the bandwagon?
  3. Where did it occur? Did it occur at such a place where the most dramatic effect would be realized? Was the event designed to unfold at this location to gain the most attention?
  4. How did it occur? Did a natural chain of events unfold the event the way it played out? Or was it designed to be at the right place, at the right time and with the right people to maximize the perceptions of others to gain their belief?
  5. When did it occur? Was it designed to occur at a specific point in time for maximum effect of was it accidental?
  6. Why did it occur? Was the event designed to occur to unduly influence mass amounts of people to become aware or their surroundings? Or was it designed to convince as many people as possible that what they believe is happening is NOT from the reasons they believe it is happening?

When you honestly answer these questions, you will see a pattern of expression unfolding right before your very eyes. You will see what is actually going on behind the scenes of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of objects, animals and people.

Now that you have your outline of information, go to the Internet and gather the opinions of others about what happened. Whatever each person claims is the truth, verify that it is factually the truth and begin to test its validity by searching for similar occurrences. Bookmark your journey and log reputable references for further study. Go to the library and dig deeper in researching what you have noted and what others have said. Use your mental ability to discern the truth without judging it.

Judging occurs when you add emotional agenda manifestation to your observations because it is predicated on your own self-survival. Observe, evaluate, perceive and believe what you experience by always relaying the truth. This way, you will never end up with your foot in your mouth and never have to experience the foul taste of dirt, germs and public ridicule. Be ye therefore diligent in seeking the truth and validating its occurrences! Please visit here for further research into how to discover the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HUMANISTIC
DETERMINISM

The lack of the effect of spiritual insight on the human condition borderlines on humanistic determinism. If you remove the peace within; the chaos ‘without’ will always win. I have experienced this first hand and I live by it. Everything that exists comes from imperceptible occurrences.

To discount their existence is not experiencing the fullness of life. It is restricting it by your opinions. Divine order moves natural order. When you allow that which is to guide you, you will experience this in its entirety.

The 'apparent' struggle between identifying with the ego and the spirit is a choice that many make instead of just allowing what is to be without attaching any emotion to it. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

What you deem as an illusion is merely a reflection of what you perceive, conceive and believe. That which has created everything is contained within everything; THAT is reality! God is within and until you realize that, your infirmities, problems and apparent disadvantages will be a result of what you believe and NOT what you KNOW! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is the omniverse entirely mental? If this was so, then why do we experience perceptive changes? We are dynamic, not static! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If where you are, God is, then why are you not acting like God? Why aren’t you creating beauty? Why aren’t you sharing Divine love? Why aren’t you helping those with the blessings you have been so graciously given? Be therefore perfect, just as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only when you completely trust in God will you see yourself as being worthy; just as the Divine sees your worthiness! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALLOW

Allow the Divine to move Divine order to affect natural order with the peace of security, the comfort of safety and the knowingness of spirit.

If you choose to fight that which you perceive is against you, its existence will persist until you allow Divine order to affect it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MONEY IS NOT CANCER

Money is not a cancer; it’s the love of money over the well-being of others that is a cancer! If we need to identify the aberrance, let's make sure we focus on the human choice over the inanimate object.

When you blame things instead of the choices of beings, you are misdirecting the identification onto objects that cannot choose. It is in the choices that we make that we reveal our aberrances; not in the results of those choices.

Consequences come from actions OR inactions and NOT from thoughts unfueled by emotions that move us to participate or not participate in life. Money is a construct of potential to be able to DO things that either ‘add to’ or ‘take away from’ life.

Be focused on the reality more than what you ‘believe’ is the reality. Be ye therefore focused on life-giving choices more than those that take away from the growth and expansion of everyone. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THANK YOU

I would like to personally thank all of you for the time you have invested in reading my writings, liking them or even commenting on them. It honors me that you have taken the time out of your busy days and invested in what I have written.

The dedication by all of you to interacting with me is very impressive. It demonstrates that each one of you is asking questions that need to be answered. Whether or not you agree with me is not what is of prime import.

What is impressive to me is that you are doing something to answer your questions instead of dismissing them as not worth being answered. All of you are impressive! You challenge me, you uplift me and you honor me. I am so grateful to have each and every one of you in my life.

Thank you for being there and may God bless you and your families each and every day with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IS THE WORD?

What is the Word? “For the word of God is living and all-efficient, and much sharper than a double edged sword, and it pierces to the separation of soul and spirit and of joints, marrow and of bones, and judges the reasoning and conscience of the heart” ~Hebrews 4:12 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). Is the Word Jesus? Is it the Bible? Or is it what is contained in the Bible? Is it something that can be sweet to the soul and sour to the body? Or is it an everlasting sweetness that can never be crystallized?

As the sweetness of the Word crystallizes in the minds of believers, the perceptions are hardened and the Word becomes lifeless and rigid. The Word is LIVING and its sweetness is NEVER rigid! The Word is living and is NOT subject to the whims of the ego; it is never controlling, dominating or manipulating. It is life giving and NOT that which takes life away!

As the Divine expressed Divine love into Creation, we became the individualized expressions of that love embodying life eternal! We ARE children of the Most High and we always have been. It is in our perceptions and the beliefs of the ego that we aren't that creates the problem! We ARE already home; we just need to get over our ego's demands and allow that which is to guide us.

Be that which you truly are and not that which you believe you are. For it is in your beliefs that you are blinded to the truth and in your knowing you are guided to it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

12 SIDES TO EVERYTHING

The expression of Divine love into creation creates the dodecahedron holograms which are mere reflections of the ONE. What we perceive as being solid is, in actuality, mostly open space appearing solid on an imperceptible grid, field or scaffolding that we cannot sense with our five physical senses.

We sense the reflections, perceive copies of it and believe what it ‘is’ relevant to our experiences. It is when we come to KNOW our ONENESS within that we know that the Divine is transcendent AND immanent!

We can never know the system we are contained in until we transcend that system by going outside of the system itself (Gödel).

How do we get outside of the system of the perceived dualistic reality? By going within to the Source of all life! As within, so without! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOU ARE NOT
BETTER THAN OTHERS

If you deny others the same rights that you demand for yourself, then you have a major problem. The problem is that your ego believes it is better than others. It reveals that your agenda is more self-serving than community serving. It shows that you believe that because of your race, your self-accepted ‘position’ or your knowledge that somehow you deserve preferential treatment. NOTHING could be further from the truth! You feel ‘entitled’ to be treated in a special manner because of what you ‘believe’ you are.

What you truly are is a hypocrite who only cares for themselves. If you truly cared for others you would demand the same rights for them that you feel and believe you are entitled to and that society should give you. Until you remove your ego’s yearnings for recognition and replace them with the Divine desires of equality and mutual respect, you will continue on your self-serving quest for your ego to control, dominate and manipulate others to your own ends.

Prayer recognizes the Divine within. Meditation listens to the Divine within. Service acknowledges and respects the Divine within others. Until we treat each other by respecting the Divine within all, we will never leave Mt. Ego and serve all of humankind. Be ye therefore in divine service to all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FEELING THE SPIRIT

What does it mean to ‘feel’ the spirit? Is it an emotional reaction to your experiences in a positive manner? Or is it a spiritual proaction to encourage others to discover their own peace, understanding, joy and Divine love? Are you dancing on the outside from the emotional reactions to your ego’s yearnings on the inside? Or are you dancing on the outside from the spiritual proactions to your divine desires on the inside?

Only you can determine this. How do you know? If what you ‘feel’ adds to the growth and expansion of EVERYONE by sharing Divine love, then it is FROM the spirit. If what you ‘feel’ adds only to you and NOT everyone, then it is FROM your ego. If this appears to be too simple of an analysis, then this is where your problem lies. You are looking to the limited to bring you the unlimited. Only when you look to the unlimited to ‘fulfill’ the limited, will you be able to grow and expand out of your shell of mediocrity and learn to share Divine love with all. Until then, you will keep fooling yourself that your self-serving needs, wants, desires and expectations are for the greater good of all.

When you say that ‘if I had this, then I would do that’ you are placating your ego’s demands to control, dominate and manipulate everything in your life to your own end. Feeling the spirit within requires consistent and regular WORK! It means that you consciously acknowledge the Divine within by asking the proper questions in prayer, seeking the correct answers in meditation and fulfilling the growth and expansion of all in divine service to others.

Fulfillment of a life replete in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance requires that you PARTICIPATE in life by sharing your talents, skills and abilities with others CONSISTENTLY!!! Retreat to your inner sanctum every day to drink the waters of the living spirit within in order to ‘feel’ its presence; but don’t just stop there. Take that presence with you into your world in divine service to others.

Until you share that which has blessed you, your progression into fulfillment will not unfold advantageously to you AND everyone else. Feeling the spirit means that you are living in the now and not in the past or future. It means that your expression of Divine love ‘seals the deal’ for the blessings to flow for you and ALL whom you encounter. Be ye therefore always ‘feeling’ the spirit within! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOVE WHERE YOU ARE

Until you learn to love where you are you will never be living in the now. Choose to feel good about life as it is and you will be blessed with how it will be as it unfolds in Divine order.

When you react with anger, fear or foreboding, you are not accepting how it is and you are living in the fantasy world or “Why is this happening to me?” That is not what is important!

What is important is that you maintain your peace by understanding in how life unfolds from what is not seen into what is. Be joyful in how it unfolds and you will see Divine love everywhere! Be ye therefore perfect in loving where you are NOW! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT BLAMING

It is we who must learn to live together by not blaming one another for what we 'believe' others are doing to us.

Until we WORK to understand one another posturing will be mistaken for mutual respect and disguised egos will be mistaken as living from the spirit.

In order to live in peace we must understand our mutual joys in sharing Divine love everlasting.

Until we do, we will mistake our beliefs for Divine knowing; for in love we share the spirit and in selfishness we live from the ego.

Be that which seeks peace and not derision. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OPPOSITES

Can you oppose something and not fight it? Can allow what is good for all and resist what is hurting everyone? Is it possible to reject what is aberrant and accept what is true and supportive? Yes, it is. Whatever you choose to fight and resist will continue to arise until you learn how to effectively deal with it. How do you do this?

You allow it to pass through you without attaching any reactive emotions to it. You don’t give it any power over you. Wherever you put your ongoing attention to, your energies will be directed at re-creating experiences that support the assertive feelings of you doing what you perceive is right OVER what you perceive is wrong.

The harder you push against something and react to it, the more you re-create it in your experience. Why not just reject the aberrant behaviors and accept them for what they are by proacting? How would do this? Outline a plan to deal with the spread of the aberrance and put your attention to co-creating beauty instead of derision.

Focus on the joy of sharing and being fulfilled more than fighting what you perceive is against you. You ARE and active participant in how you react to what you experience. Choose to be proactive and co-create the life you want to live and not the life you feel you HAVE to deal with and live.

Harmonize your feelings when confronted with dissonance and you will create a melody that everyone with enjoy. Be ye therefore allowing and NOT resisting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
