ELUDING YOU

It is that which you willingly separate yourself from that keeps eluding you. When you put that which is already yours outside of yourself you are telling the omniverse that you don’t know it is already yours.

You are sending the message that you ‘believe’ that it is not within your ‘grasp’ to attain it and that you must ‘do’ something to ‘have’ it.

Stop isolating yourself from all that is within you already and be that which you are; a dynamic co-creator of your reality by allowing your greater good to flow through you unfettered by any thoughts and feelings of separation.

Be ye therefore integrative! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DENYING PERFECTION

Every time you tell yourself that you are not perfect, you are denying that you are a child of the Most High and elevating your ego as judge, jury and executioner. Embrace the fact that you are PERFECT as you are and the Divine NEVER makes mistakes.

It is your EGO that makes mistakes by denying your Divine perfection. Saying “I am not perfect” is creating the condition where you aren’t and the more you do this the more you will believe this to be true. It is an erroneous belief that you have programmed into your mind and heart that does NOT serve you and others.

Stop denying that which YOU are and embrace your Divine perfection. When you do, your life will be a reflection of that perfection in every breath that you take and every moment you share Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BASED ON BELIEFS

Our understanding of life is based on our 'beliefs', whether religious or scientific in origin. Beliefs are repeated thoughts that come from sensory observation, electro-chemical perceptions and formulated 'opinions'.

Whether we are here through intelligent design or just 'happy accidents' doesn't really matter.

What matters is that we come to ‘know’ just whom and what we are in relation to all of life without basing it on what others ‘believe’.  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ATHEISM

Atheism is a 'belief system' that attributes order from chaos without intelligent design. Random astronomical occurrences are beyond probability. Most astrophysicists/mathemati-cians understand this quite clearly, yet hardly speak of it because of the pressure from the scientific community contrary to intelligent design.

Every law of physics has a mathematical correlation that exists as the information associated with the action. Random occurrences? Perhaps; but highly unlikely. Understanding the patterns of expression in the perceived dualistic reality leads only to intelligent design. Fostering ‘belief systems’ based on sensory observation, human perception and limited opinions only convolute what is so simple that most cannot see.

All belief systems, including religions and atheism are dependent upon human consciousness, which view a limited experience of the entire cosmos. To rely solely on that as a guide for understanding, lends itself to relying not only on valid beliefs, but erroneous ones as well. Go to the Source of well-being and experience the entirety of Divine love everlasting. Only then will you ‘see’ from the ‘eyes’ of omniversal understanding and not the ‘eyes’ of limited vision. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DISTRUSTING DIVINE ORDER

I have been accused of displaying clear evidence of distrust in Divine Order and my fellow man. I was asked by a friend, “Where's your Faith?” My faith is not predicated by the behaviors of the aberrant; it is ONLY in the Divine!

Conservatism is an antiquated and selfish doctrine based on one's ego; not on the community as a whole. Only when we learn to live with one another and depend on one another for strength and support will we truly be a progressive society.

Why go backwards into philosophical tenets that no longer work when we can move into a beautiful and cooperative future together? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALLOWING DIVINE LOVE

Open your heart to the real you by allowing Divine love to bathe you with peace, understanding, joy and a fulfilled life.

Your well-being is always flowing through you until you stop up the dam with selfishness, distractions and erroneous beliefs.

Be that which you already are; an extension of Divine love in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOVE WHAT YOU HATE

By loving what you hate you are pivoting your consciousness from a defensive posture of reaction to an offensive one of proaction.

You are diffusing that which yearns to break down and are supporting that which desires to build up.

Stand firm with Divine love as your guide and you will live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting!

Be ye therefore loving! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INTELLIGENT DISCOURSE

I always invite intelligent discourse amid emotional posturing; how else will all of us learn from each other? We are all here to share our take on life with each other. We share our ups and downs, our ins and outs and our experiences of our inner and outer worlds. However, if I feel that someone is posturing based on opinion and not informed opinion, I WILL challenge it!

Not because I believe that I am the be all and end all of informed opinion; because I challenge anyone to set aside their established and erroneous beliefs in favor of Divine knowing. If the Divine leads you to believe and be passionate about something, research it thoroughly before you espouse it to anyone. If you don’t, you are operating from agenda manifestation of your ego and NOT the Spirit of God.

Whatever the Divine reveals will be repeatedly verified in your research and will bear out in many peoples’ life experiences; not just a select few who believe it will. Be more discerning and less judgmental; be more loving and less righteous; be more understanding and less posturing. We can and will learn from each other when we keep the door open inward to the truth. Be ye therefore open and discerning! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DIGGING DEEPER

When you dig deeper into the minuteness of the omniverse, you see the structure of reality from quantum movements to molecular bonding to fractal expressions. It is there when you look for it.

The omniverse is a symphony of chaos moving into order and back again. Some are worried that the galaxy of Andromeda is heading straight for us.

So what! It won't be here for a millions years or so and probably will pass right through us! Why worry about that which we have no control over instead of living in the moment for the blessings we all share and enjoy now! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONSULTATION
Consultation with Dr. Dean

WILLING

Are you willing to set aside what you believe is true in favor of what the Divine imparts to you as true?

If you are not, then you are being guided by your ego and NOT the Spirit of God. Truth arrives in many forms; some that we recognize and some that we don't.

If you deny truth in favor of what you believe is the truth, then you are NOT living in the spirit. Period. End of discussion. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

Always remember just how precious and great you are. You are the crowning achievement of the omniverse crafted to look back on itself awe, wonder and love.

Be grateful for what you sense, feel, think and know. It is all designed to bring you back from whence you came; Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore precious and great! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

It is not that the universe is 'changing'; it is 'rearranging' that what is already present into new forms of energy and matter. That which we 'see' comes from the invisible motions of that which we don't 'see'. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

As long as you promote separation you will remain on the hamster wheel. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
The real world comes when we allow it to be what it is and make mid-course corrections to keep it on track. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The law of resonant frequency alignment can be explained with the concept of ‘birds of a feather flock together’. From the many are one and from the one are many.  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

THE WAY IT IS

Here is a subchapter from my book, Spiritual Growth. It is based on one of my all time favorite songs, "The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby and the Range...

ACCEPTING THE APPEARANCE OF THINGS

Today we will examine a figure of speech that promotes the acceptance of things as the way they appear to be and simultaneously suggests that nothing can be done to change the outcome of these things. Bruce Hornsby and the Range released a song by this title in 1986 and the lyrics depicted a lily white attitude toward people of other races by trying to convince them that their social standing was the way it is. Following is a sample of the lyrics:


VERSE 1

Standing in line marking time-
Waiting for the welfare dime
'Cause they can't buy a job
The man in the silk suit hurries by
As he catches the poor ladies' eyes
Just for fun he says "get a job"

CHORUS

That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
But don't you believe them
©1986 Bruce Hornsby

A POWERFUL AND TRUE STATEMENT

Mr. Hornsby starts out by creating a picture of individuals who can’t afford to buy a job. They are waiting in the welfare line to be able to get the necessary things they need to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads. They don’t have a job because they either can’t find one or they don’t have the training or education to get a good job. The man who has a job or has money walks by in his silk suit and looks down on the poor lady and smugly says “get a job.” In other words, he makes a judgment about somebody he doesn’t even know as a person (and about their circumstances). The chorus echoes the futility he is trying to project to those whom he considers beneath him by implanting the thought of that’s just the way it is and that some things will never change. But is that true? Hardly! It is if the person listening to these statements accepts them as true and repeatedly harbors those thoughts. Mr. Hornsby leaves the chorus on a positive note with the statement “But don’t you believe them.” A very powerful and true statement.

PREJUDICES

How many of us have heard similar statements about our talents, abilities, or status in life and actually believed them; or even worse, never challenged them? Mr. Hornsby finishes with the last verse:

VERSE 3
Well they passed a law in '64
To give those who ain't got a little more
But it only goes so far
Because the law don't change another's mind
When all it sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the color bar

©1986 Bruce Hornsby

Here, Mr. Hornsby is referring to the landmark legislation known as The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (in the United States) that extended voting rights and outlawed racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public (Source: Wikipedia). The U.S. Government’s attempt at leveling the playing field for non-whites was made a law, but it didn’t change the minds of those so pre-programmed to reject those who were a different race from them into hiring people of color. History has proven that you can change the laws but you can’t change what people accept and believe as true until they realize that their beliefs are based on prejudice; a system of thought and behaviors that are learned, usually from friends and family.

Prejudice is an unfavorable (or favorable) and preconceived opinion or feeling formed beforehand without knowledge, thought, or reason (dictionary.com). In other words prejudice is based on an opinion instead of fact. It is a supposition about someone that is not based on logic or reason. Those who accept some behavioral facts about another group of people and form opinions that everyone in that group manifests those particular behaviors are guilty of stereotyping. In other words, their behavior is the way it is. Bull!

CHALLENGE YOUR BELIEFS

Only those who accept another’s evaluation and subsequent judgments believe that things are the way they are and that they cannot be changed. Why would anyone with any intelligence buy into this malarkey? It gets back to the energy involved in choosing to think your way through to a conclusion or simply react to a set of circumstances. We are all guilty of holding onto beliefs that block the manifestation of our desires. We accept these beliefs as true without challenge.

How many times does something have to occur a certain way before you accept it as true? Once? Twice? Three times? Just because something happens three times doesn’t necessarily mean that it will always happen that way. If the same occurrence happened at a different time or location the results could be dramatically different. How would you know that unless you challenged your accepted belief and pursued another course of action? When the results you seek are not manifested, analyze what you have done and take another approach.

ACCEPT THE TRUTH BASED ON FACTS

The only reason that events, circumstances and occurrences transpire in our lives is because we have given attention to them. But what about accidents? Did you leave your house today planning to get into an accident? Probably not, but what was your state of mind? Were you operating from fear or were you operating from a consciousness of faith? Your mindset has a lot to do with how you react to or pro-act in your environment. Did fear make you overly cautious or did faith make you overly confident?

If someone else arrives at a conclusion such as the way it is doesn’t mean that you have to accept it as true. If you do, you will subconsciously set out to confirm their beliefs. Since your attention is focused on these apparent facts, you will be more aware of re-occurring facts and give more attention to them. For example, scientific evidence shows that global warming is a reality. It reveals that climate change is occurring and that it will be hotter in the summer and colder in the winter. Weather will become more violent and the collated facts support this conclusion. Yet, U.S. Republican nay-sayers and delusional talk show hosts dispute this information to an unaware audience to pad their bottom line. The problem comes when interpreting the facts. Remember, fact becomes opinion when it is evaluated against an individual’s ego. It then becomes a judgment.

FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON WHAT YOU DESIRE

Whatever state we are in when we give our attention to something will accentuate the creation of subsequent events, occurrences and circumstances. If we are in a negative mind set our attention will accept the way it is and we will reject any way available to change the way it is. If we are in a positive mind set our attention will accept the way it will be and we will reject any way available to change the way it will be. It is a matter of choice for us to either accept or reject others’ opinions of reality. Why choose to be unfulfilled and unsatisfied in life? Why accept the unawareness of what other’s feel you need? Your imagination creates reality. God has given all of us the ability to imagine a better world and a better life. Choose to embrace the best for yourself and reject the opinions of those uninformed individuals who don’t have your best interests at heart. While you are accepting and believing their conclusions, they are fulfilling their dreams by stifling yours. Choose happiness and accomplishment. The rewards are yours if you give your positive attention to it and don’t accept the way it is.

BROKEN WINGS

Do you feel as if your wings are broken? Do you feel that you can no longer take flight because you have lost something you thought you had to keep you soaring in the heavens?

Mend those broken wings by removing your erroneous beliefs of lack and limitation and embrace Divine abundance.

Soar in the heavens with your healed wings and fear not getting to close to the Sun.

Your wings are NOT repaired with melting wax but with Divine nectar! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARGUING

When you spend your precious time arguing against the obvious physical laws of giving and reciprocity, it reveals that you have an agenda to be a recalcitrant for the sake of recalcitrancy and NOT for the facts as they are. It is ego that drives you and NOT the Spirit of God.

Do you walk into a dark room and turn on the ‘dark’ switch? Or do you turn on the ‘light’ switch? Or do you choose to remain in the darkness because you fear to even try?

Remember, “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness” (originally Peter Benenson in 1961 from an old Chinese proverb; attributed to Adlai Stevenson and John F. Kennedy as well).

When you accept the fact that you are living in darkness and you truly desire to live in the light you ‘choose’ to turn on the light switch and NOT curse the darkness.

You will always be known by the behavioral fruits that you bear MORE than by the thoughts that you think, the feelings that you feel, the beliefs you aspire to, the words that you speak and the actions that you take.

Be ye therefore a bringer of light! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONSULTATION

MEDDLING

A friend contends that I am ‘meddling’ is the conservative viewpoint of 'free will'; which, in actuality is ego reigning unfettered by mutual growth and expansion.

It is literally a 'con' game perpetrated by those selling everyone a bill of 'individuality' goods predicated on the ego maintaining control and NOT the Spirit of God.

Divine order unfolds for the betterment of ALL and NOT just for the betterment of the individual.

That's why conservative theory works only for ego dominated behavior and NOT for the collective of individuals. See what I mean? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

VEIN OF GOLD

Just like a vein of gold lies embedded in the hard rock, the vein of truth lies embedded in the hard beliefs that many covet in order to feel secure in whom and what they ‘think’ they are.

They use this vein of truth to reinforce their core beliefs by dressing up the beliefs with platitudes, circumstances and righteous behaviors in order to convince others of their apparent validity.

Only until we chip away at the stratum of hard rock do we ever get to the truth. Remove the window dressings and get to the real core of the truth by going within each and every day to immerse yourself in the cool lake of Divine consciousness.

The inner waters of truth will erode the harsh exterior to reveal your true ‘core’ values. You are NOT your beliefs! You are the Divine in action! Know it and value it! Be ye therefore valuable! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IMMEDIATE ANTICIPATION

Waiting for the action to begin is like living in a quandary of immediate anticipation.

Anxious thoughts about inevitable transitions often preclude expected outcomes.

Remain focused on the joy and dismiss distractions into oblivion.

Be ye therefore centered! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REFUSING TO GROW UP

What always amazes me is that I point to the Divine within for all of YOUR answers and yet I am accused of proselytizing ‘my’ viewpoint and diffusing the flow of Divine order. WTH? Yes, I do speak with authority because I see clearly the difference between the ego’s motivations and Divine inspirations. The acid test is ALWAYS quite simple. If how you interact in your environment hurts another, takes away from the flow of life and creates acrimony, it is from your EGO!!!

If your interactions in your environment helps others, adds to the flow of life and creates joy, it is from the Spirit of God. Too simple? Well-being is ALWAYS present; when you allow it to flow through you unfettered by selfish agendas it creates beauty in your life. When you resist the flow of well-being what you resist will persist and manifest continually until you simply LET IT GO!

Don’t react with emotions to fight what you don’t want; proact with emotions to allow it to pass through you without attaching any negative emotions to it and you will be blessed with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting. If you don’t know just how this works then continue to believe what you believe and be a slave to the selfish demands of your ego.

You will spend your entire life being whom and what you believe you are, what others believe you should be and what keeps you in your comfort zone. If you choose to leave your cocoon of mediocrity, you will have to expand your sphere of influence in order to spread your wings. Nature has demonstrated this time and time again. When will you allow your beauty to allow you to fly? Be ye therefore expanding! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

JUSTIFYING YOUR FEELINGS

When you elevate your skewed negative perceptions of life and how it is treating you over the experiences of those who truly enjoy life, you are fulfilling an internal program of control, domination and manipulation of the feelings and perceptions of others in order to justify your feelings to yourself.

In order for you to be secure in what you believe, you need to recruit supporters of your position in order to validate your internal conclusions as being ‘reality’. Not only is this lacking in maturity, it is tainting reality with your perceptions and opinions because they are ‘real’ to you.

There is NOTHING wrong with sharing your take on things, but when it is presented as ‘the way it is’ simply because you experience it that way, you are fooling yourself into ‘believing’ something that you value without properly testing its validity for others as well. You were born with your own unique perspective on life based on the internalizations of your experiences; this doesn’t mean that others will have the same experiences as you.

If you so choose to force your opinion on others without respecting their opinions, then you have missed the point completely in how to share Divine love! You are living in a self-deluding paradigm tainted by the veil of your ego and will never see the reality of life until you seek a greater perspective within.

Let go of your feelings of control, domination and manipulation of others and their opinions; it will free you to experience the truth of life that you have been blocking from your own experiences. Be ye therefore aware. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Spiritual Books

AFFIRMING YOUR REALITY

Blindly repeating affirmations without feeling the movement of their direction is a waste of time. Declaring a state of existence requires the decision to use focused thoughts to co-create an image of what you ‘choose’ to express. You must be passionate about what you affirm or the thoughts will never be put into motion by your feelings. It is not that your passion mysteriously broadcasts frequencies that command the laws of the omniverse to attract what you seek into your life. It is the passion that you exude from your focused thoughts that break down the veil of your ego to allow the state you desire to exist beyond your convictions from your erroneous beliefs.

All occurs within you and you begin to see that you have always been living in well-being; and that it was your choices of thoughts and feelings that separated you from existing in ongoing state of well-being. Knowing this is accepting the responsibility for your actions; whether reactions to or proactions from your experiences. Blaming others for your circumstances, inventing spiritual constructs to ‘explain away’ your actions and proselytizing others to ‘believe’ what you ‘believe’, are all reactions from your ego to the fact that you are ultimately responsible for your separation from well-being.

Understanding your part in creating your circumstances, going within and experiencing inner peace daily and discharging your erroneous beliefs in favor of Divine knowing, are all proactions from the Spirit of God within you to accept responsibility for ALL of your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors. Affirmations are declarations to center your mind on the thoughts that ACCEPT your true state of reality, which is well-being. You must then engage your heart to ‘emote’ those thoughts into discharging your erroneous beliefs that you are separate from your well-being. It is up to you to do this! If you don’t, and then look outside for your answers, you are allowing your ego to command your life and NOT the Spirit of God.

Thought does not co-create unless emotion is behind it. It requires the acceptance in your mind and the allowance in your heart in order for anything to be created. Allow that which is your eternal state of well-being to flow through you each and every day by affirming the thoughts of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love while passionately ‘expecting’ these states to be realized in your life. This is the process of Divine co-creation. Argue with it if you so choose and you will be realizing a self-fulfilling prophecy of belief system dependency and Divine separation. These processes are present in all of nature. As above, so below. As within, so without. May the Divine bless you always with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance each and every day of your life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

KNOWING THE TRUTH

It's not in 'needing' to believe in God that holds us back from living in the spirit. Letting go of belief allows us to ‘know’ the truth.

It is in ‘belief’ that we are deceived by our own minds into concepts of reality and debates on the apparent substance of reality.

It is in ‘knowing’ that we become one with the truth by opening our hearts to that which is eternal. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I differentiate between my Divine desires of the spirit and the yearnings of my ego by employing an acid test. When I seek what benefits me only, it is a yearning. When I seek what benefits myself AND others, it is a Divine desire. Why? Because that which gives life gives life to all and that which takes away from life seeks only self-edification.

I don't desire to be better than anyone else; I desire to be the best I can be for myself AND others. The clear path to that is to give up my erroneous beliefs in favor of Divine knowing. Stepping in the pool of Divine love heals me, guides me and immerses me in my well-being.

To be one with that which I already am I must let go of that which I believe I am. I must know and NOT believe. Believing is repeating thoughts of conviction until I accept them as true; whether they are true or not! Knowing is allowing Divine guidance to move me in the direction that edifies all! Be ye therefore ONE with your Divine desires! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Consultation with Dr. Dean

STOP BELIEVING

When you come to know the truth you stop believing what you thought was the truth in favor of what contributes to the growth and expansion of all life. Perceiving what edifies all is usually blocked by what pleases your ego.

Listen to the Divine whisperings in your heart and know that which gives life; instead of what your mind tells you is giving life and in reality is taking it away. Know the difference between ‘thinking’ things through and ‘feeling’ things deeply.

Feeling bad about something indicates that it is NOT in the best interests of all; feeling good indicates that it is something that benefits others AND yourself. Pay attention to your feelings; they are there for a reason! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LEARNING TO GET OUT
OF YOUR OWN WAY

I’m sure you have heard of Bi-Polar Disorder. Formerly known as Manic Depressione, it is a condition where a person goes from one extreme to another driven by racing thoughts and intense emotions. Life exists in between these poles of extreme behavior. Somehow, the person suffering from Bi-Polar Disorder is not content ‘in-between’ and has to move towards the extremes to feel secure in being whom they perceive they are. Is it all electro-chemical nerve firings out of control that cause this? Is it a mindset that constantly triggers and re-triggers these behaviors? Or is it just a state of chemical imbalance driven by poor diet, too much alcohol or over indulgence in pharmaceuticals?

Whatever it may be you are NOT a slave to this condition and if you believe that the only way to live with it and deal with it is to be constantly ‘drugged’ into chemical balance then you are ‘believing’ just what the medical/psychological wants you to believe. Reputable psychiatrists treat their patients with drugs in order for the person to experience the minimization of Bi-Polar Disorder in order for them to learn the coping skills necessary to handle this condition on their own WITHOUT the continued use of drugs.

Perhaps we need to change the name to Tri-Polar disorder; meaning, to give a person the drug induced state of reduced rapid nerve firings long enough for them to develop the necessary coping skills and integrate those skills into their lives. In order to embrace unfamiliar patterns of behavior one must be calm enough to fully experience the benefits of those patterns of behavior. Being in a relaxed state normally allows the individual to ‘try’ new coping mechanisms and experience the benefits of effectively using these coping mechanisms. One of the best coping mechanisms is meditation.

As the following statement attributed to the Buddha (however not said by him) says, “It may be stating the case too strongly to say that in meditation one seeks to gain nothing; for there is an increase in happiness and peace of mind. But when asked, “What have you gained from meditation?” the answer would be: “It is not what I have gained that is important but rather what I have diminished, namely, greed, hatred, and delusion” [1973, World Buddhism, Volume 22 ~By the World Fellowship of Buddhists].

Sometimes what you gain is more what you lose. Losing that which keeps you distracted from your Divine purpose is always beneficial. Be that which you truly are and allow it to unfold in Divine order. Use the tools at your disposal to maintain a state of inner peace but learn to graduate from using the grip of your hand to using the grip of pliers. Move forward in becoming that which you already are; a perfect divine being who is always in the flow of Divine well-being that is learning to get out of its own way. Be ye therefore resourceful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WITHOUT VALIDATION

Beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts we accept as true with or without validation. Knowing is being in the presence of the Divine and following its guidance despite what you 'believe'.

Admitting you are powerless over anything is ultimately claiming that everything to you is a fight or resistance to something that you perceive is against you.

Allowing the guidance of the Divine is never powerlessness; it is accepting and allowing your well-being over anything else. It is, in essence, being true to yourself!

Your ego is powerless over any addiction because the addiction feeds the yearnings of your ego; however, the addiction has NO power over the guidance of and Divine love from the Spirit of God. Be ye therefore powerful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TELLING THE DIFFERENCE

How do you know the difference between the still small voice of God and the ego’s beckoning for attention? If what I hear with my heart tells me to do anything that does not contribute to life, encouragement and support of others, then it is NOT of the spirit.

If it tells me to be selfish and only concerned for my needs, then it is of the ego. Every thought in your brain is a chemical interaction. When I decide to repeat those interactions enough they become beliefs and my ego follows their pre-programmed 'guidance'.

When I decide to discharge any erroneous beliefs completely; that is when I am free to experience my inner well-being. A fool listens to what hurts others; a wise person listens to the still small voice within that guides them to help others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SOWING THE SEEDS OF LOVE

Are you sowing the seeds of love every day in your life? Are you sowing those seeds into the hearts of others as well?

Or are you throwing your arms up in the air and saying that it will never change? That things will always be the way they are?

History has shown that we have grown a great deal; perhaps not as far as we would like, but we have grown.

Keep planting the seeds of love; nurture them with the kindness in your heart and watch them grow into the expression of Divine love creating omniversal beauty.

You can do it when you know how by listening to your heart! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DO WHAT ADDS TO LIFE

Every time we hear the news it's all about violence, war games and words of discordance. No wonder we are reaping what our society is sowing!

Focusing on what takes away from life for pleasure creates the conditions we experience. Fighting, resisting and being against that which we feel is hindering us creates more of the same.

Our lives are a reflection of what we believe we need to exist. Stop believing and start knowing Divine love. It is the way for us all to live in peace, understanding and joy. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WE ALL LOSE

When ego is elevated over the Spirit of God we all lose. The current state of our culture, virtual reality and the desire to please everyone has created an unequal playing field by the hopes of creating an equal one!

Rules, regulations and laws are set up as benchmarks for improvement and NOT individual constriction. By making what is obviously wrong what is acceptably right, we have shot ourselves in the foot and can no longer run the race.

Complacency, lack of initiative and lack of service to others has caused our society to degrade into ego control, domination and manipulation over serving others with Divine love. When we tilt the scales towards loving others, we grow and expand into the Kingdom of God on Earth.

Don’t agree? Then visit the library, do the research and validate the truth. Not only will you be surprised but you will be stunned! When independence is heralded over interdependence we have lost our strength from interactive guidance and growth. Be ye therefore interdependent! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT HARD WORK

Attraction is no more than allowance of that which you live and breathe for; learning as much as you can about it, observing and employing the methods of those who are successfully doing it and working as much as you can to realize it.

It is not HARD work; it is focused work that lives and breathes its Divine purpose and allows it to be manifested in Divine order. You are here to create beauty, peace and love; not selfishness, acrimony and discordance.

Let go of all things that don't serve your inner purpose and be whom and what you were created to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REACHING ONLY ONE

If you reach one person with the truth your entire life is a complete success! Be thankful for every opportunity to serve others with the truth. Sharing Divine love with others is never based on a lie; it comes from the Spirit of God within.

Every life has successful moments when you allow your inner well-being to flow through you unfettered by your ego’s selfishness. You know those moments and how they have affected you profoundly. You carry them with you in your heart.

Allow those moments to be more frequent than your reactions to apparent negative experiences; move toward your well-being and your well-being will bathe you with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Live from the spirit and minimize your ego’s demands and commands.

You were created from well-being and only you can allow it to flow through you despite your apparent perceptions of separation from the spirit. You are a complete package just as you are; never let anyone convince you otherwise! Be ye therefore truthful. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TIME

Time is measured in the physical world by mechanical, electronic and nuclear devices. It sequentially moves forward one increment after another.

The closer we are to a source of gravity, the faster time passes. The further away we are, the slower it passes. Our perceptions of time are all predicated upon the attention we put on it.

Ultimately, time is a relative concept; and we all know how we feel about relatives! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IS SUFFERING?

Suffering, by definition, is to undergo or feel pain or distress: to sustain injury, disadvantage, or loss: to undergo a penalty, as of death: to endure pain, disability, death, etc., patiently or willingly [dictionary.com].

The word comes from the Latin word ‘sufferre’, which means to bear. When we feel that we are not getting what we ‘believe’ we should be getting, we sometimes enter a state of suffering. The key word here is ‘believe’; suffering about something is ALWAYS a choice that we make because we ‘feel’ we have to ‘endure’ some sort of pain.

Suffering is an expression of the ego that seeks the attention of others to feel sorry for us for experiencing our perceived state; the ego is seeking comfort and safety in numbers. The ego needs constant reinforcement of its choices in order to feel secure in its own power. There, in actuality, is no need for us to bear any problems that we perceive are affecting us and threatening our individual survival.

It is in our ‘belief’ that we are separate from our well-being that we seek the comfort and support of others when we perceive that we have problems that are blocking our well-being. Most people choose to fight or resist those problems instead of allowing their perceptions to discharge into oblivion.

We are always in the flow of well-being; it is our choice to accept suffering as the response to our perceived problems. Choosing to suffer is seeking the attention of others to support you; instead, choose to rejoice in the fact that your perceptions of problems is temporary; and that by sharing Divine love with all your problems will melt away. Instead of reacting, proact with Divine love and you will NEVER need to suffer again! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REGULATIONS

When, in a free and open society, the proliferation of lies goes unchecked by the truth, the less discerning and naïve are coerced into believing lies because of their inclination to rely on their individual prejudices more so than the facts.

Do not blame these people for their naivety; work to create laws to punish the spin doctors for proliferating these lies. How? Permanent removal from public office; hefty fines; community service.

Regulations are ALWAYS needed to enforce those who USE others to their own ends; whether financially or personally. Be a part of the solution to this problem and not the cause of this problem. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOES OUR FUTURE
DETERMINE OUR PRESENT?

In modern physics there is an ongoing debate about Retrocausality; which is any of several hypothetical phenomena or processes that reverse causality, allowing an effect to occur before its cause:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrocausality.

Some say that in Advanced Wave Theory, that our moving forward in time is actually determined by solutions that have already been attained in the future moving backward through time:

http://www.alice.id.tue.nl/references/vannini-di_corpo-2011.pdf.

How can this be true? How can our futures determine our existence now? How can something that hasn’t happened yet determine what we do now? It’s actually simpler when you take imagination into account. If you use your imagination to see the end result of your dreams and feel the joy from attaining those dreams, you have, in effect, co-created that reality in your mind and heart. You have virtually manifested a reality which affects your present.

If you keep that vision and the feelings that the vision has created forefront in your mind and heart, your ‘anticipated’ future is creating the ‘feelings’ that affect your decisions in the now. It is something that is NOT miraculous; it is something that is natural. Miracles are what we believe has occurred, when in actuality, they are natural occurrences that we perceive as miracles because we fail to understand their Divine causality.

The seeds of your Divine purpose are within your mind and heart. As your awareness grows and expands into a deeper understanding of your Divine purpose, you come to learn that Divine order unfolds in accordance with how you use your imagination to create a future outcome. You determine your future by how you actively use your imagination. Einstein stated the following: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Imagination is the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses; it is also the action or process of forming such images or concepts [dictionary.com]. Is using your imagination the act of creating a temporal causality loop that you ride to the realization of your innermost dreams? Or is it a way for you to see beyond what the present reveals as ‘fact’ in order to transcend what you believe will happen, based on the perceptions of your current circumstances, into what you believe ‘might’ happen?

Creating possibilities is necessary in order to affect probabilities. Use your imagination to create the reality you desire to live by expecting it to happen and allowing it to manifest in Divine order naturally. Don’t look for miracles in what occurs naturally. You are here to create beauty with Divine love; DO IT! Be ye therefore imaginative! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT PROVEN

Belief is allowing ourselves to trust in something that hasn't been universally proven, something that we choose to accept as true with or without validation or something that allows us to remain comfortable, safe and secure. It is nothing more than repeated thoughts we accept as true.

Knowing is to perceive or understand as fact or truth; to apprehend clearly and with certainty; to have established or fixed in the mind or memory; to be cognizant or aware of: to be acquainted with (a thing, place, person, etc.), as by sight, experience, or report: to understand from experience or attainment [dictionary.com].

How do we transcend from believing into knowing? Is it a sequential process or does it come from intuition or inspiration? ‘Believing’ is the process by which our egos, which are the conscious construct of our identity, retains information by subconscious programming to ensure our self-survival.

‘Knowing’ is the process by which the Spirit of God relays certainty to us in the conviction that we are proceeding on the right path for our growth and expansion in accordance with the growth and expansion of others. Believing gets us on the path and knowing allows us to arrive safely at our destination.

Use both to stay focused and express your Divine purpose in Divine order. If you listen too much to the ego, it will lead you astray. If you temper its yearnings with your Divine desires you will manifest what is best for everyone and yourself. Be ye therefore balanced! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOES GOD OWN YOU?

How can one that has given you grace and free will own you? Do your parents ‘own’ you simply because they physically conceived you? Does the government ‘own’ you because you were born within its jurisdictional borders? Is the world of spirit always at odds with the physical world? Or is the ego always at odds with the Spirit of God?

The integration and balance between both ‘worlds’ is essential for the mutual growth and expansion of all. If the Divine is within everything everywhere, then doesn’t the world contain the Divine? Where does worshipping a deity fit in?

Worship is for an anthropomorphized God that displays human qualities. We are reflections of Divine projection and we embody the Creator. There isn’t any choice necessary to decide between the Spirit of God and the will of your ego!

It is the balance between the two that affords all of us the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that we share. Balance is the key and divine respect is the lock. Respect Divine guidance and follow it tempering your ego enough to keep its selfish yearnings in check.

Be your own best friend and you will be the best friend of all of us as well. Be ye therefore respectful. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEEDS OF POSSIBILITY

Your thoughts are seeds of possibility to your subconscious mind. Your feelings germinate those thoughts. When you repeat certain thoughts over and over, they seed your subconscious mind with beliefs that you blindly accept as the truth.

These beliefs grow as you experience the conviction of your feelings about those thoughts. As you reflect on ‘your’ truth, your possibilities convert into probabilities of actions that move you into manifesting correlative behaviors.

These demonstrated behaviors create opportunities and ultimately circumstances that reflect back to you just what you were thinking and believing. You cannot repeatedly think progressive, supportive and good thoughts and bad fruit from those thoughts become circumstances in your life.

Conversely, you cannot repeatedly think undermining, selfish and bad thoughts and good fruit from those thoughts become circumstances in your life. The thoughts you hold as true and the feelings you experience as a result of those thoughts will create suffering or bliss; believe in suffering and you will suffer.

Know Divine love and you will live in bliss. You are in the driver’s seat and the choices are yours and yours alone. Tend your garden with good seeds; and weed out the weeds! Be ye therefore fruitful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TEND YOUR GARDEN

What does it mean to 'Tend Your Garden'? Is it a metaphor of life or is it a mundane task that needs to be performed in order to receive 'enlightenment'? Can spiritual principles be revealed in the mundane tasks of life? Or is it in the results of those tasks that we understand how life really works? Voltaire’s final words to his followers were to ‘Tend Your Garden’. What does this mean? Does it mean that we take up gardening to maintain enlightenment? Or does it mean that we must plant the seeds of greatness within others and nurture their growth and expansion?

No matter who we ‘think’ we are, what we do with our lives, where we go, how we interact with others, when we act and/or react and why we even do what we do, we still have to maintain our day to day lives. We have to support ourselves, maintain our livelihood and our homes, raise our families and do the mundane tasks that keep our environment healthy and clean. The Gestalt in participating in chores of maintenance is the secret to our entire existence. It is just not the willingness to perform these ‘tasks’ but the action and behavior in doing them that reveals spiritual principles in our earthly lives.

The feelings we get after cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming the floors, doing the laundry and washing the cars are spiritually profound. They reveal the results of the processes that contribute to a healthy environment. Tending our external ‘garden’ reveals the principles of tending our ‘internal’ one. Within us is a garden of thoughts, ideas, words, feelings, actions and behaviors that grow and expand as a result of what our belief systems accept as ‘important’.

Tending our inner garden means that we diligently make the time each and every day to ‘weed out’ the negative and erroneous beliefs that block the Divine good from bathing us with grace. Putting our egos in their place only comes when we dissect our belief system and eradicate those beliefs that have no basis in fact and are the accepted opinions of others. Removing those weeds that suck the life out of us and rob the good plants of nutrition affords us the ability to effectively ’let go’ of the things that don’t contribute to our growth and expansion.

When our inner garden is ‘tended to’ regularly, we allow ourselves to trust completely in the Divine. Just as the father in the story of the Prodigal Son ran out to meet his son who returned home is how the Divine will meet us with more and more blessings when we make the effort to ‘tend our garden’. Walk toward divinity and it will run to you. After all, we are children of the Most High God and He loves us unconditionally. Peace and blessings to all of you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW

We all remind each other of things we already know in our hearts. Whenever we share a smile with a stranger, laugh at things that happen to us and give of ourselves to others, we are sharing Divine love.

"Then The King will say to those who are at his right, 'Come, blessed ones of my Father, inherit the Kingdom that was prepared for you from the foundation of the universe.' For I was hungry and you gave me food, and I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in. I was naked and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you came to me.' Then the righteous will say to him, 'Our Lord, When did we see you that you were hungry and we fed you, or that you were thirsty and we gave you drink? And when did we see you, that you were a stranger and we took you in, or that you were naked and we clothed you?' 'And when did we see you sick or in a prison, and we came to you?' And The King answers and says to them, 'Amen, I say to you, as much as you have done to one of these my little brothers, you have done that to me.'" ~Yeshua, Matthew 25:34-40 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

It is one thing to fail at something; another to be a failure! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What can you do right now to feel fulfilled? Let go of everything you resist in your life and allow Divine love to flow through creating inner peace, understanding and complete and utter joy. Too simple? Perhaps that’s why you aren’t feeling fulfilled! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

An agnostic is a person who claims that they don't know because it cannot be proven. What a lame excuse! Those who ride the fence are destined to never being able to step in a cow patty. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The end of the path might appear to be nebulous and feelings of foreboding might be predominant; it is in your stepping forward boldly that the end becomes clearer and the fears melt away. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The pool has boundaries. If you want to get wet, you need to step in it to get the experience. If you don't, you will remain dry, safe and secure. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I know that my life is eternal. When I die my spirit will live on in nature because what I am, the Divine IS. This applies to all of us. We are energy; an expression of Divine love. Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it simply changes form. I am that, I am. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The sign of being a loving person is being open to the feelings of others while imparting the truth of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

We are NEVER tested by the Divine! I've been feeling and saying this for most of my life. How could the Divine love us so much to create us and then test us at every turn? This has never made any sense to me! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Focusing on that which serves yourself only constricts the growth of everyone! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Libertarian policies afford us the most choices at the cost of interdependency. We are NOT alone as some say. We DO need each other! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The beauty is in the unfolding while the preparation is in the cocoon. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I feel that miracles are what we believe has occurred, when in actuality, they are natural occurrences that we perceive as miracles because we fail to understand their Divine causality. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

With a book you create a film in your mind; a reverie that makes you feel and live through the story more than watching the story go by with your senses. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Which do you think is easier, the role of the student or the role of the teacher? ~Jeff Belyea

Not to know either role is easier because it allows you to always learn. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
