I AM LIKE

What are you like? Are you ‘like’ the Divine? Or are you in a state of ‘becoming’ like the Divine?

Either way, it is your beliefs that put you ‘on a path’ to somewhere you already are.

You are a co-creator; a Divine manifestor; an extension of the Divine!

What are you like? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BASING VALIDITY
ON BELIEFS

When you base validity on your ‘beliefs’ you are using supposition based on repetition of thoughts and not looking at the facts as they unfold. Just because something has occurred someway before, doesn’t necessarily mean that it will unfold the same way again. That’s why science demands ongoing proof through experimentation before a hypothesis becomes a theory.

Events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of ourselves and others unfold in our environments from either reactions to or proactions from our experiences. Seeking validity of the truth requires an honest approach where you don’t allow your beliefs to ‘fudge’ the data to ‘fit’ your emotional agenda. Being open to the truth requires that you continuously test its validity. In order for truth to be what it is, it must be valid over and over again.

There are many ‘truths’ out there in our world; it requires a discerning mind to validate those ‘truths’ time and time again. Don’t get comfortable with your belief system. It is the one thing that mostly keeps you from knowing the truth more than just ‘believing’ the truth. A discerning mind watches the facts ‘as they unfold’ and ascertains their possible outcomes before they completely unfold.

During the process of unfolding, when certain benchmarks are met, possibilities become probabilities and we come to know just how valid our perception of the truth is; at least for the present occurrence. Be ye therefore discerning and factual! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REACHING IN
DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS

Are you always reaching in different directions to satisfy your desires? Are you stretching outward grasping at things, clutching at straws or beckoning the wind when you should be going inward for answers?

As long as you look outside for that which can only be found within you will miss what you are seeking. Stop. Look within. Listen to that which has created you and that which will always fulfill you; now and evermore!

Be ye therefore reaching inward! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PALE BLUE DOT

This excerpt from Sagan's book Pale Blue Dot was inspired by an image taken, at Sagan's suggestion, by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990. As the spacecraft left our planetary neighborhood for the fringes of the solar system, engineers turned it around for one last look at its home planet. Voyager 1 was about 6.4 billion kilometers (4 billion miles) away, and approximately 32 degrees above the ecliptic plane, when it captured this portrait of our world. Caught in the center of scattered light rays (a result of taking the picture so close to the Sun), Earth appears as a tiny point of light, a crescent only 0.12 pixel in size.

“Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.
It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known. -- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

NOT THE BE ALL
AND END ALL

Science is not the be all and end all methodology for the study of reality. It is the most accurate method of measuring, calculating and extrapolating evidence derived from purposeful experimentation in the perceived dualistic reality of polar opposites and their shades of grey in between. Mathematical theories have ‘proven’ that scientific observation is only valid within its own system of observation. In order for us to validate the observations of scientific data we need to transcend ‘beyond’ the closed system of evaluation based on observed data.

But how do we do this? By the very nature of science we cannot use ‘intuition’ or ‘imagination’ to ‘prove’ anything within a system that is solely based on the revelation of the senses. But what about data and information that exists ‘beyond’ the ranges of our senses? Do we ignore this data or simply relegate it to the realm of ‘non-perception’, and therefore not provable? The only simple and effective solution is to allow imagination and intuition to ‘fill in the blanks’ of what we cannot observe and perceive and design thought experiments that will eventually lead to provable physical experiments. We ‘integrate’ these two systems in order to go ‘beyond’ what we perceive based on our limited senses.

We ‘allow’ that which is ‘beyond’ our observations and perceptions to steer our course into proving physically what we ‘know’ spiritually. By projecting that which we desire to experience, feeling the joy of experiencing it and expecting mutual benefits for all, we co-create our realities. In electronics, a frequency generator produces waves that have a peak and a trough of amplitude and a frequency of occurrence over time. This frequency displays characteristics that ‘identify’ its inherent properties. Like a string plucked on a guitar, it emits a vibration that reveals its properties. This is much like the vibrations we emit from the words that we speak. We speak our accepted reality into existence and that is why it is so important that we watch what we say each and every day.

Every word we emit creates subsequent overtones and undertones that are in harmony with what we speak. They reflect off of the canvas of the omniverse and our subsequent observations and perceptions are collated into our belief systems. In essence, we are what we speak. Speak health, wealth, prosperity and abundance into your life instead of infirmity, poverty, disillusionment, lack and limitation. You are a reflection of what you speak into reality. You might not be able to accurately measure, calculate or extrapolate this fact; however, you can observe, perceive and believe your reality or choose to know that it can be changed into you becoming what you were created to be. Be ye therefore open to your heart and the knowing it reveals. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

The more science is available to all of us, the more likely it will not be abused by any one of us. ~Neil deGrasse Tyson

Do the ‘sins of the father’ lay heavy on the son? Do the aberrances of the father affect the son when the son least expects it? Do these things surface only to let the son know just how much he is like his father? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.” ~Daniel Patrick Moynihan

It has been said that you have to feel your desire before you see it in your mind. You then have to see it clearly before you believe it and you have to believe it to be it. However, most of all, you have to know it to experience it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

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

IGNORING THE FACTS?

Do you ignore the facts when they are presented to you? Do they go right over your head and you refuse to use logic & intuition to see the faults in your arguments? Why is it that some people cannot get that science requires hard physical evidence in order to experiment upon; and it ONLY uses raw data sensed by our senses (or extensions of our senses through fine-tuned instrumentation) to evaluate experimental information.

Our senses have limited ranges and they do NOT reveal the entire picture in ANY experiment. It amazes me that some highly intelligent people argue with the FACT that because you cannot sense something, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist or is not relevant! As for the scientific statement "you might be wrong as part of the assessment", the only thing I can say is 'non sequitur".

You ARE wrong when you discount ANY of the evidence; especially that which you cannot sense! Logic and intuition are systems of evaluation and should be used in conjunction with experimental information in order to yield a more conclusive assessment of reality. Be ye therefore intelligent! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TOOLS

All of the tools for learning are online and some people refuse to avail themselves of easily accessible knowledge. When they debate ad infinitum based on a misunderstood definition, I now walk away and smile; not smugly, but thankful for what they are teaching me about myself.

I can choose to react and push them to learn the ‘accepted’ definitions or proact and plant the seed in them for them to learn how to seek out knowledge for themselves. True wisdom is letting go of all knowledge and trusting in that which has created you, nurtured you and blessed you with life.

Whether you call it God, nature or the universe doesn’t matter. It is all giving, all caring and all expressive to those who seek understanding. Be ye therefore a seeker of wisdom. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEING IN THE FLOW

What does it mean to be ‘in the flow’? Does it mean to stand on the sidelines and watch the flow move downstream? Does it mean to immerse yourself in the stream and simply float to wherever it brings you? Or does it mean that you let go of resisting what you fear ‘might’ come upon you and allow that which edifies you to move you in Divine order to unfold your Divine purpose completely?

Some will say that we should all ‘go with the flow’; meaning that we learn “to cope with adversity; to accept one's lot [in life]; to do what other people are doing or to agree with other people because it is the easiest thing to do” [the freedictionary.com]. Others will say that we need to ‘be in full flow’ if an activity is “in its fullest expression; it is happening fast and with energy” [the freedictionary.com].

Do we relent to events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of others when we determine them to be ‘adverse’ to the unfolding of our Divine purpose? Do we always seek the easiest of most convenient ‘way out’? Or do we simply jump into the stream with reckless abandon and ‘hope’ for the best? Being in the flow truly means being in the moment; being here now. It means that stop trying to control, dominate and manipulate reality to suit our whims and allow that which is our Source to ‘flow’ blessings through us for our benefit AND for the benefit of others.

It means that we ‘let go’ of the reins and trust in the Divine completely. We might get banged on the rocks of the river bed; we might be washed up onshore; and we might fall short of our final destination; we could even drown! The possibilities are many while the probabilities are few. It all depends on ‘how’ we look at things; our attitudes! What’s important is that we learn what works and what DOESN’T work in order to get up again and move in the direction of purposeful fulfillment. Be ye therefore in the flow! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALWAYS

Always have faith and trust in God. However, never listen to the evil that selfish egos try to distract you with because they are out to fool you to lie down and succumb to their commands for their own advantage and ‘glory’.

Staying in faith and completely trusting in God is one thing; lying down and listening to the devil is another. Never give your Divine power away to anyone else.

Share Divine love with all but never get distracted by the cunning of evil. If you do, it will be your undoing. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DIVINE INTUITION

Divine intuition is always there; it is you that chooses not to listen to it. It filters down through your thoughts and creates feelings of harmony and Oneness. Your ego is always there as well; it filters down through your thoughts and creates feelings of disharmony and separation in order to ensure its self-survival.

The difference? If what you feel you ‘must’ do ONLY benefits you, it is from your ego. If it benefits you AND others it is from your Divine intuition. Act on that which edifies all and not just yourself and you will be flowing well-being into your world.

Otherwise, you will be interrupting the flow of well-being with selfishness and you will live in disharmony and separation from that which blesses you. It’s your choice! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A DEAF EAR

Always turn a deaf ear to evil. How do you know what is evil? If what anyone says ‘takes away’ from life and the truth it is blatantly evil. If it ‘adds to’ life, it is NOT evil. Can it get any simpler than that?

Don’t allow distractions from this maxim to convolute your understanding of the truth. If you do, you are fooling yourself and you will be undermined by that which is out for itself and NOT out for all.

Be discerning and turn a deaf ear to ANYTHING that lies and denies the edification of life. See evil for what it is; a conscious separation from the truth to edify itself only.

Listen to the Divine within and send evil packing. You have the power; use it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WON'T BACK DOWN

I WILL NOT BACK DOWN TO EVIL!!! I will stand firm on Divine love, Divine truth and Divine well-being. I will reveal that which lies, hurts and tears down that which is good, life-giving and caring. I am an extension of Almighty God and I have a duty to share Divine love with all.

Beware evil! For in your lies are the seeds of your own destruction. Your own words will reveal the liars that you are. I will stand firm on Divine truth and will expect Divine order to unfold the revelation of your evil deeds. God is a great God.

One that is good and NEVER allows evil to ultimately win! You’re on notice, evil! Your season of spin, prevarications and the sowing of iniquity will come to an end that you NEVER anticipated. I stand on the love of God!

I stand for the truth amid your incessant lies. You WILL reap what you have sown. Wait and see…~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO MORE GUILT

Just because you have done something wrong in the past doesn’t mean that you have to feel guilty about it forever. You were a different person then; you have learned more now.

Lighten up on yourself and be who and what you are; a child of the Most High! When you learn to forgive yourself you will learn how to forgive others.

Harboring guilt and shame always holds you back from blossoming the beautiful person that you already are. Be ye therefore forgiving! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PURITY AND KNOWINGNESS

Whether Yeshua existed or not historically doesn't matter to me. The words he uttered in the Red letters of the New Testament are the only things that seem to translate purity and a knowingness of the Divine; just as all of the spiritual thinkers from Buddha to Mohammed and from Socrates to Descartes tried to convey to their followers.

I choose to know the Divine within and NOT believe the words written down by others. Everyone has their view and they are all justified in having that view. I choose to not believe second hand information and come to know Divine love personally. The problem for me comes when others insist that their view is the correct one and no one else’s is.

If you can’t see that this behavior is motivated by ego and NOT the Spirit of God, no one can help you. It will take a personal experience with the Divine for you to know Divine love. It is then you will know that God has no religion. God is the Infinite Spirit that expressed Divine love and that is why we are here. Be ye therefore pure! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OTHER THAT WHAT I AM

I cannot be other than what I am. If I listen to everything that others tell me what I should do, say and feel, I will be denying just who and what I am.

I choose to say what my heart knows; not what my mind believes. Being true to yourself is the greatest act of love you could ever share.

Don’t think that changing into what others say you must do will make you better than what you already are. You are Divine love.

Only you can get out of your own way; others cannot do it for you. Be ye therefore knowing of your heart! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EXPECTING

Expecting God to fulfill the Divine desires planted in your heart IS completely trusting the Divine.

Those desires were planted as seeds of greatness in you for a Divine purpose to be fulfilled in Divine order.

When you replace faith with fear, expectation with hopelessness and trust with distrust you are disallowing your well-being to unfold in your life.

Be ye therefore trusting in your well-being! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WE ARE BLESSED

If any wounded being graces our doorstep, we are blessed. It is always our honor and blessing to serve.

I am in prayer for all wounded and injured creatures and we are blessed to have the Divine allow us to watch over them.

Thank you, God for healing all the innocent creatures who are hurting right now. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW YOU NEED
TO BE TREATED

It is not worthwhile to expect the love of another but it is worthwhile to expect to be treated with honesty, kindness and respect. If anyone denies you these benchmarks of interaction, they are only out for themselves and will never give you what you KNOW you need in your life. Be ye therefore expectant of how you know you need to be treated! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A FALSE SENSE

When you have power over life and death you are operating under a false sense that you can protect yourself from external harm.

Yes, you can protect yourself from others who might be armed or not, but as long as you ‘believe’ that your safety is dependent solely on your meager attempts of lashing out at others in self-defense, you are fooling yourself completely.

With your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors you co-create your reality every day. When you live in fear you need weapons to give you a false sense of security because you EGO is in command. When you live in faith you trust the Divine to guide you and protect you.

You may say that I am foolish for saying this, and if you do, please ponder this: who is ever-present, all-knowing, all powerful and all creative? Your ego or the Spirit of God?

Follow what the Divine guides you to do and you will not live in fear of what ‘might’ happen and you will live in the faith of what blesses you with Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TERRORISTS
AMONG US?

Are terrorists among us now? Are they all Muslim? Are they all fascists? Or is it simply your own belief and fear of what you do not understand?

First, most Muslims are peaceful and loving people. Second, fascism, no matter what you call it, is radical; much like the Westover Baptists who radicalize Christianity to suit their dogma. Thirdly, I choose to live in faith and not fear someone 'carving my head off with a steak knife'.

I figure that I will take my 'chances' with trusting in the Spirit of God more than listening to my ego telling me that I can defend myself against a perceived enemy. I know that I am making the right choice and the right 'bet'! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Guidance Channel

LIVING IN
FEAR AND EGO

When you own a gun to protect yourself and others you are living in fear and ego and NOT the Spirit of God. If you truly trusted the Divine, you would NOT want power over the life and death of others.

If you argue against what is said here you are defending your ego’s perceived right to have the power of life and death over others. If you trust God completely you have faith in the Divine presence to protect you from all harm.

Believe what you feel you must; however, what is said above is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Deny it and it proves you are operating from your ego.

Accept it and you can live in Divine protection each and every day of your life. Be ye therefore faithful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

IMPLYING?

I have been accused of ‘implying’ that the police should lay down their weapons by initiating gun control. I have never said that. I have never implied that either.

When you choose to separate more than unite, you arm yourself to protect what you perceive 'could' harm you or your family. The police have a duty "to protect and serve", not overthrow and take over.

When you believe that this is what is happening, it is fear being projected from your ego into YOUR reality. Please, let's get real and stop listening to the ego that divides and conquers.

Listen to the still small voice of the Spirit of God that unites us all in Divine love. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MAINTAINING
A BALANCE

It is always a balance between what the ego tells you to do and what the Spirit of God guides you to do. If you choose mostly what the ego demands you perceive that it has the final say. Not so.

When you choose fighting over loving you are not living in the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom imbues peace, understanding, joy and Divine love; not chaos, posturing, hatred and the proliferation of fear and separation.

When you anthropomorphize the Divine into being like 'you', it is your ego that is in command and NOT the Spirit of God. Did Yeshua cut off the other ear of the Roman soldier? Or did he pick up the ear that Peter had cut off and heal the soldier?

If you are a true follower of Christ you follow what he did and not what some delusional and egomaniacal preacher said he did. Be ye therefore balanced! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IS AWARENESS?

What is awareness? Is it a state of being where you realize just whom and what you perceive you are? Or is it an anointing from God that stimulates you to create that which the Divine desires you to perform? Awareness is a state of being where you are experiencing your consciousness and the knowledge of your environment that you have gained from your interaction with your environment. Is it one big ‘Ah-hah’ moment where all is revealed to you? Or are there levels of awareness that gradually unfold to allow you to experience your inner well-being?

We are all psycho-physical units of Divine expression that follow a process of unfolding. As we proceed through our levels of awareness, we experience the divinity more and more. However, when we actually experience the thought forms that are created in our environments and have the opportunity to interact with them, we either choose to convert possibilities into probabilities or go back to the beginning. We get caught up in a negative causality loop where we never graduate to a deeper understanding of our inner well-being. We can break free from this loop at any time when we immerse ourselves regularly into the silence, stillness and beauty of the Divine within.

Inner revelation of Divine love everlasting is where we enter the realm of complete Divine trust and allowance. If you live every day in the chaos of the outer world without ‘dipping in the well’ of inner well-being, your viewpoint will always be skewed by what you believe more than by what you know. Listening within affords you the opportunity to see beyond what you perceive and come to know what is real and what is a part of someone else’s agenda. Trust in the Divine more than your ego. Your ego will always try to convince you that it is ‘all that’. The Divine will never try to convince you of anything; it will, however, guide you to an awareness that ‘we’re’ all that.

We are Divine love in action and it is up to us to act responsibly and be accountable for our actions and inactions. Be ye therefore responsible and accountable! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LEVELS OF
DIVINE AWARENESS

Ideas – neuro-biological thoughts that come from ‘somewhere’; the electro chemical exchange in your brain from internal chemistry and external environmental interaction.  These interactions reveal the possibilities of growth and expansion.

Feelings – neuro-biological feedback that either aligns with your awareness of multiple possibilities or misaligns due to one’s inability to be in touch with their feelings.

Beliefs – neuro-biological programs based on repeated thoughts or ideas; can be actual and factual or erroneous and not validated.

Vocalizations – neuro-biological-audible expressions that come from one’s beliefs seeking validation from one’s environment or an inner knowing of reality.

Actions – neuro-biological choices of direction based on doubts, worries and fears or of certainty, assuredness and faith.

Behaviors - neuro-biological movements in a direction based on trust in a desired outcome; moving possibilities into probabilities.

Fulfillment - neuro-biological feedback that comes from the actualization of thoughts to behaviors; creating expectancy in realized and experienced outcomes whether positive or negative. If positive, one moves into ‘Allowance’ and if negative one moves back to the beginning creating more ‘Ideas’ that support its perceived experiences.

Allowance - neuro-biological experience of silence, stillness and living in the now. Being at one with your inner well-being and allowing Divine love to flow through you into your life to create peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. One experiences ongoing health, wealth, prosperity and abundance as a way of life.

FUDGING THE PROCESS

When 2 + 2 equals 5 someone is fudging the process. Can you say that “I cannot say that 2 + 2 equals 5 twice” and it be true?

When you are enclosed in your own world of beliefs you will never transcend beyond that world until you allow your awareness to expand and look back on just where you are in relation to what you are.

Be ye therefore accurate and beyond the sum of your parts. Be synergistic! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STUPIDITY

When someone consistently makes decisions that adversely affect themselves and/or others, then they are stupid. It is not about judgment, it is about reality. If you so choose to deny reality, that is your right.

However, don't try to make the rest of us who see things as they are feel guilty about calling it as it is. Discernment evaluates based on what doesn’t work for others and judgment evaluates based on what doesn’t work for us.

Pointing out that someone consistently makes detrimental decisions that affect their lives and others’ lives adversely, is NOT judgment.

Judgment is when we decide that others should do what we do in order to be whole. There is a difference and pointing aberrance does NOT make anyone bad; it reveals their awareness of ‘how it is’. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

JUDGMENT VS. DISCERNMENT

Judgment

What you are doing is wrong for me.

What you are doing is wrong for you and others.

You keep doing things over and over again and never get it right.

What you believe is wrong and how you live is wrong.

How you are interacting with people is wrong and you should be doing what I am doing.

What I believe is correct and what you believe isn’t.

What I know is the truth and what you know isn’t.

Discernment

What you do is not working for you.

What you are doing is not working for you and others.

You keep doing things over and over again and it keeps yielding the same results.

What you believe is not working for you and others and how you are living is not yielding the results you desire.

How you are interacting with others is not working and it is up to you to do something about it.

What I believe is correct for me and what you believe must be working for you if it yields the results you desire.

What I know is the truth for me and what you know must be working for you if it yields the results you desire.

BETRAYING THE TRUST

When you stab the workers in the back that made you a success simply to cut your costs and increase your profit, you are betraying the trust that built your success and undermining the quality of your own soul.

Life moves in cycles and waves and those whom you stepped on as you were climbing your ladder of success are the same ones who will not support you when your house of cards topples.

Giving respect and dignity to those who have helped you build your success ensures that you will maintain that success when times get rough and you get overwhelmed. Be ye therefore respectful of the dignity of all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ANTHROPOMORPHIZING

Anytime anyone adds human qualities to the Divine they are limiting the perception of just what the Divine is. The Divine is all-knowing because it is ever-present. It is ever-present because it is all-powerful. It is all-powerful because it is all-creative. It is all-creative because it is all-knowing.

Each aspect is infinite and beyond that which we can perceive; yet we can transcend our own awareness to align ourselves with Divine order and KNOW that which the Divine knows when we listen to the Divine’s voice of silence; the stillness of presence; the feeling of Divine love; and the knowing of Divine creation.

We are the extensions of the Divine who imbue human qualities and characteristics that exist with the opposite polarities of the perceived dualistic reality. The Divine does NOT hate; the Divine does NOT get mad; the Divine does NOT kill; the Divine LOVES and gives life to everything everywhere.

Until we come to this level of mature understanding we will continue to fight among ourselves; resist that which we perceive is harming us; and lash out at each other. Our duties are to SHARE Divine love with all and unify our differences; not separate that which we truly are in favor of that which we aren’t.

Be ye therefore human and live from that which is the Divine within all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HUMAN GOD?

When it comes to an anthropomorphic God dispelling reward and punishment from on high I am totally in agreement with most Atheists. The concept of some super being dispensing love and hate and testing people for their loyalty is totally ludicrous to me. It seems that the crux of the Atheist’s arguments center on this ‘God’ figure in heaven somewhere; yet, when confronted with the life force within them that manages their own existence they seem to falter significantly.

With all of the latest scientific research into the fact that most of the omniverse we cannot sense with our limited senses, they still choose to ignore the fact that the unseen actually ‘moves’ the seen. As science moves closer and closer to the spiritual understanding that life begets life as a ‘by-product’ of existence, spirituality is moving closer to science by the correlations of ‘as above, so below’ and ‘as within, so without’.

The Divine is beyond anything that we can even comprehend; whether we believe or not. Divinity comes from KNOWING the presence of God within and witnessing the creation without. It comes from the consciousness of recognition that what is ‘above’ in spirit is manifested ‘below’ in form. The seat of your inner divinity is in your figurative heart.

The center of your being that knows the existence of the spirit beyond what is perceived by the limited senses and the guarded consciousness of those who choose to deny any God because of their unwillingness to study nature in its purest form. If they did, they would see that the fractal expressions of life unfold mathematically perfect to that which ‘expresses’ form and ‘impresses’ consciousness. Be open to that which you cannot perceive and your mind will open to the wonders of reality and not the din of delusion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

OWNING YOUR
INFIRMITIES?

Have you ever seen the commercial on COPD? It opens with a lady saying, “I’m J-A-N-E and I have C-O-P-D.” Then a guy comes on and says, “I’m D-A-V-E and I have C-O-P-D.” It finishes with, “I’m K-A-T-E and I have C-O-P-D.” Talk about owning your infirmity or illness! Do they think that I am “D-E-A-N and I have D-U-M-B?”

The more you own your illness or infirmity the more you acclimate yourself to replicating its existence. Do you really ‘want’ to be healed? Do you truly want to live in health? Or do you own that which is causing you pain and suffering? Are you D-U-M-B and accept P-A-I-N? Or do you completely trust in the Divine to keep you in H-W-P-A (Health, Wealth, Prosperity and Abundance)?

You decide!!! Be ye therefore S-M-A-R-T and live in L-O-V-E! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REWARDS FOR
GOOD BEHAVIOR?

Are you expecting God to reward you for good behavior? Do you believe that if you are good to others that you will be rewarded in heaven? Do you realize that heaven exists within you right now and that living in faith from that ‘heaven’ is more important than living a righteous life?

We all have made mistakes in our lives and if we solely act out of fear of being punished for our aberrances, we are falling short of living in Divine love. We are only thinking about ourselves and our ‘piety’ and NOT about the welfare of others.

Divine love exists to be shared with one another. Being good and faithful means that you take that inner well-being of Divine love and share it with others ‘expecting’ Divine fulfillment; and NOT expecting reciprocation of that love from others.

Why? Because a pure heart gives without expectation of reciprocity from others and expects the blessings of Divine love to heal our hearts with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore faithful in Divine love and righteous in sharing it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A SECONDARY EMOTION

Anger is a secondary emotion. Anger is the feeling you get when you believe that you haven't been treated fairly. It comes from fear of being rejected again; hurt from sharing your heart; humiliation in front of others or frustration with the person who rejected you.

Anger kicks in to protect you from being hurt again. Anger is not a bad thing; it is part of our growth into the realization that how we feel about life isn’t always how others feel about it.

Anger becomes a bad thing when you allow it to rule your life and keep you from engaging again. Use anger to identify those who will ultimately frustrate you and hurt you; then move on to be just whom and what you are by no longer associating with those who will anger you.

Be the beautiful person that you are no matter what anyone else says or does. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A BEACON OF LIGHT

Your inner heart is a beacon of light that guides you with Divine love into unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly.

Allow your inner well-being to direct your steps in light and love. Choose to follow we and not me in order to be fulfilled with Divine blessings.

Your power of choice is what determines your reality. Always choose wisely by living in Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT KILLS?

Knives don’t kill people.

Guns don’t kill people.

Bombs don’t kill people.

Weapons of any kind don’t kill people.

People kill people.

How do they kill people?

By using knives, guns and bombs.

How do we minimize killing people?

By regulating the people who kill people.

How do we regulate people who kill people?

By limiting their access to weapons.

How do we limit their access to weapons?

By paying attention to their mental health and behavior and intervening.

How do we do this?

By making a call to the authorities when someone is unstable.

The instruments of death kill people only when people use them; guns kill more people at a time than knives; bombs kill more people at a time than guns.

The problem is in the people who cannot, or will not, adjust to life.

It takes all of us to be aware of the signs of this and say something about it.

Whether people are naturally unstable, pharmaceutically drugged up or just plain crazy; say something.

You might save lives in the process.

Know where you live and choose to live in peace.

~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MINIMIZING VIOLENCE
AND TERRORISM

How do we minimize violence and terrorism in the world? What can we do to change the mindset from fighting to sharing? It takes training children from when they are young to seek peace and not war; understanding and not bullying; selflessness more than selfishness; love more than hate. Until this happens, nothing will change.

Go to the source of the problem and change the programming. When ego and ‘me’ are more important than your inner spirit and ‘we’, fighting will continue and death will result. Do you want peace in the world? Then teach peace, understanding, joy and Divine love to our children and NOT fighting, bullying, selfishness and hatred.

Too simple? Perhaps. But how will we know until we consistently set the standards of behavior for our young. Be a seeker AND teacher of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THIRSTY?

I’m sure you all have seen this, so I added some others…

“Dear optimists, pessimists, and realists,
While you were all arguing over the glass of water, I just drank it.

Sincerely, the Opportunist.” ~Unknown

However, while the glass of water was being downed by the Opportunist, the Pragmatist gave a thumbs up; the Atheist said it didn't come from God; and the Scientist said that the Opportunist drank it because he was thirsty.

~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FINDING JESUS

Have you ‘found’ Jesus? Have you found out what the Orthodox, Catholic or Protestant churches claim to know about him? Or have you studied deeply into finding out just who Jesus was? First off, his name was Yeshua, not Jesus. He was a historical figure who lived before the Common Era (B.C.E.). There have been some who deny his existence as well as those who elevate his existence to godhood.

Does this at all matter? Or is it just a romantic smokescreen to lure you into submission? Did you know that the supposed Trinity was invented by the Catholic Church? Did you know that there is no scriptural evidence to support the concept? Or do you just blindly believe what some egomaniacal preacher has told you while you dropped your tithe into his basket?

When you study just what Yeshua said in the synoptic gospels you see that that authors vary in how the stories were presented. One thing that doesn’t vary too much is what is outlined in the red letters of the Bible. The theme of what Yeshua actually had said carries through.

Are you paying attention to what he said? Or are you listening to what some preacher ‘interpreted’ as to what he said? When you make the time to read what he said and meditate on it, you come to the realization that he always focused on the fact that it is our ‘faith’ that makes us whole. Not worshipping him, touching his garment or praising his name. It is our FAITH that makes us whole.

Why is this? Faith comes from the Latin ‘fides’ which means trust and confidence without verifiable evidence. Originally, it came from the Greek ‘pistis’ which means an ‘inner attitude, conviction, or trust relating man to a supreme God or ultimate salvation’. The contrary term is ‘apistis’ which means ‘no faith’. In the Gnostic gospels and the Dead Sea Scrolls we see that “the clear intentions of the writings of the Dead Sea Scrolls are to quicken the life force within the individual believer so that he or she can participate in the actual ascent into the existence known as the primordial Divine Creation, which has been set aside for the human” (©1993 J.J. Hurtak, PhD).

In the Dead Sea Scrolls “The Hymn of the Initiants [Manual of Discipline, cols. X-xi] it clearly states in passage 31 “Only through His knowledge have all things come to be, and all that is, is ordained by His thought; and apart from Him is nothing wrought.”

In the book ‘Pistis Sophia’ (meaning Faith in Divine wisdom), we see “the book of Pistis Sophia reveals in its dialogue the true relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. It portrays a deep spiritual relationship between the two… Sophia (Wisdom) itself was regarded by the early Coptics as a female presence who undergoes the experience of transgression and redemption in her path to full participation in the many universes, in conjunction with the Christ” (Dr. J.J. Hurtak).

When we open ourselves to the Christ, or more appropriately, the Spirit of God within, we allow our inner well-being to flourish in our lives. Finding Jesus the man was NOT what Christ was talking about when he referred to salvation. The Latin ‘salvatio’ came from the Greek ‘soteria’ which means ‘to save’. Save from what? Being human? Or to save oneself from the limited human experience by living in Oneness with the Divine?

We are children of the Most High and co-creators in the vast omniverse. We channel Divine love into creation and are the eyes, ears, arms and legs of the Divine here on Earth. By living in Divine knowledge we co-create our individual realities within the collective reality.

We are NEVER separated from the Divine because we are an EXTENSION of the Divine! In this sense, when we come to share Divine love with all we have truly ‘found Jesus’; not the man, but the truth of which he spoke. Is he a porcelain figure on your mantle? A painting on your wall? Or a comic strip character hiding behind a curtain when the Jehovah’s Witnesses show up at your door? Hardly. Find what the man said to all of us about the meaning of TRUE salvation.

He said it best in the Gospel of Luke (the physician) when he said, “Yeshua said to them, “Doubtless you will say to me this proverb: 'Physician, heal yourself', and 'Everything that we are hearing that you have done in Kapernahum, do also here in your town.'” ~Luke 4:23 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). Be a healer.

Be a seeker of wisdom through faith in the Spirit of God within you. Heal others AND yourself with kindness, understanding and sharing. Be ye therefore Christlike! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STACKING THE DECK

To all corporations and CEO’s that have shipped jobs overseas and then call the American workers lazy, I say the following:

When you stack the deck in your favor and then blame the ones you are taking advantage of for losing, not only are you a cheat but a liar as well! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
