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.

DEAF EAR TO EVIL

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.

BACKING DOWN
TO EVIL

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.

YOUR RIGHT TO
MAKE DECISIONS

Keep my right to make decisions about my life out of being a concern of your religion; I am NOT a part of your religion whatsoever! How dare you assume anything for me? Stay out of my life, stop stepping on my rights and take your beliefs elsewhere!

It is your ego that is driving you to impose your beliefs on me and it has NOTHING to do with the Spirit of God! Go get a life and concentrate on your own problems instead of meddling in mine.

Grow up and be responsible for your actions and stop trying to play God. Your job is to SHARE Divine love; not ram your version of it down my throat.

May God bless you and enlighten you to your blatant ignorance! Be ye therefore mature and responsible! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GUILTY FOREVER?

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.

IT DOESN'T MATTER

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.

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.

WHAT IS NATURAL

It is natural for some other species, as well as humans, to be homosexual. Every thought in your mind is an electro-chemical exchange and we all have proclivities to follow what we 'feel' is right for us. What some term as perversion is actually their own perversion of thought as being right or wrong based on their accepted beliefs and NOT on what is demonstrated in nature.

We the people ARE the government that sets policies and laws and the Creator of this omniverse is within each and every one of us sharing Divine love in our hearts. If you so choose to deny that love and label it as perversion, then it is you who is trying to teach, force, march, picket and fight for YOUR viewpoint to be accepted as true. How dare you think that you know what is beautiful and loving in someone else's heart as being perverse based on your standards of belief?

I suggest anyone who believes that homosexuality is a perversion needs serious introspection and needs to practice what Yeshua shared with us and NOT what some idiotic homophobic preacher decided is right and wrong. Those without sin cast the first stone; perhaps you should drop yours. Be ye therefore understanding and non-judgmental ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

It is better to bite your tongue and have pleasure than to bite the hand that feeds the pleasure. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

True courage is the allowance of fear, the letting go of its proliferation - NOT resisting fear by fearing its presence. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

May the beauty in your heart always project Divine love into your world! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

ANOINTING

What did you do when the awareness of Divine love anointed your heart? Did you allow it to bless you? Or did you resist its peace? Did you accept its understanding? Or did you reject its joy?

What did you do when you came to know Divine love instead of just believing in it? If is up to you to take that experience and share Divine love with all of creation.

Anything short of this is ‘believing’ that you are separate from it and not the essence of it. Be ye therefore knowing of Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SPEAKING WITH CONVICTION

If you identify with being a certain way it is because you know deep inside that your Divine purpose is speaking to you with conviction.

No matter what else ANYONE says or does should NEVER stop you from fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly.

If you allow what others say or do to stop you, you are cheating yourself from what you were created to be. Be ye therefore purposeful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONSULTATION
Consultation with Dr. Dean

EQUANIMITY

If you accept life as it is by surviving, work toward making it better by thriving and strive toward equanimity, you are sharing Divine love into your world.

It is when you stifle your survival, distrust your ability to thrive and retreat into mediocrity is when you are NOT living in Divine love. What you give in full measure of Divine love is what you will receive in Divine love; pressed down and running over.

If you don’t believe this, then you will not ever see this until you stop believing in your separation from Divine love and start knowing in your unity with Divine love everlasting. Be ye therefore the perfection that you already are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STOPPED BELIEVING

What if for just one day you stopped believing in anything and started knowing everything? Would you come to the realization that you are an individualized expression of Divine perfection?

Or would you return to your beliefs because they make you feel comfortable in what you perceive you are? Would you have truly lived that day or would you get anxious for it to be over?

Letting go of what you think and feel to live in knowing allows you to be the Divine perfection that you already are. Try it; make a habit of it; be it. Why not? It is what you truly are! Be ye therefore knowing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

COMPASSIONATE JOY

Thoughts of healing without feelings of compassionate joy are not committing effective prayers. Vacuity of presence without feelings of peace is not experiencing effective meditation.

Actions of sharing without the extension of your feelings of Divine love are not committing Divine service. Behaviors of kindness without feelings of understanding are not fulfilling our Divine purposes in Divine order.

Prayer, meditation, service and fulfillment must all be accompanied by peace, understanding, joy and Divine love or they will never be projected into the omniversal reality.

Align your feelings with your thoughts by allowing your heart to speak to your mind in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

Listen to your heart and think what it reveals to your mind. Be ye therefore aligned! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REVEALING

When you spend your time demeaning and putting down those who are displaying aberrant behaviors, you are revealing the expressions of their egos and how they are hurting others. You are allowing others who might not see their aberrances to clearly understand what they are doing.

You are judging their behaviors as being NOT what adds to life; you are identifying their behaviors as being what takes away from life! Judging behaviors and NOT others for displaying those behaviors allows you to distinguish their self-serving egos from the Divine within them.

Helping others to understand their aberrances means loving the Divine within them despite their hurting behaviors of others. It means that you see the Divine within them and send them Divine love while revealing the aberrances of their egos. Be ye therefore revealing and helpful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IS THERE A
SCIENCE OF EVIL?

Is psychopathy the result of lack of empathy from inactive areas of the brain? Or is it something that is within us all that we minimize to socially ‘fit in? Several scientists have mapped specific brains of criminals that reveal a feedback loop through the Amygdala through the Neo Cortex to the Hippocampus. Yet, some completely ‘normal’ people who have the same mapping as criminals reveal compassionate behaviors from their formative years as a child. The nurturing affects the nature. Environment DOES affect heredity.

Those who display psychopathic or evil behaviors seem to be disconnected from the feelings of empathy for others. Their egos have elevated their survival instinct to the point that they fear sharing anything with others for it makes them vulnerable. Is there a science of evil that reveals why people commit selfish or heinous acts against others? Does their internal subconscious programming ‘override’ their conscious understanding of choosing to help others instead of hurt others? Are they on automatic pilot or are they just inherently evil? When the ego is in command it will do ANYTHING to get its way; it has a compulsion towards self-survival at ALL costs. It only cares to protect and secure its own existence; even at the expense of others.

The ego has a job to do and it should NOT be eliminated from one’s life; it should be MINIMIZED by actively sharing Divine love with all. Does evil simply come from chemical imbalances in the brain? Or do these chemical imbalances reveal the fact that we need to learn to accept and allow Divine love to guide us instead of rejecting and resisting it? Allowing the Spirit of God to work through us by sharing Divine love DOES actively change our individual brain chemistries to ‘feel’ empathy and compassion towards others. The brain is the physical seat of consciousness while the mind is the construct of that consciousness. Only when we connect the dots between our hearts and our minds do we come to allow our inner divinity to blossom Divine love in our lives. Be ye therefore loving and not evil! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EFFORTLESS

When you stop trying to make your life work for you and others it will come to you in an easy and effortless manner.

You will become who and what you were created to be when you allow your inner well-being to flow through you expressing Divine love into your world.

You were born blessed and by allowing Divine love to flow from your inner heart you will live in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. You will live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting.

Let go of trying to be the best you can be and realize you are already a perfect creation of the Divine. Your task is to simply get out of your own way. Be ye therefore facile! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SPIRIT IS NON-DUAL

I 'believe' the Spirit is non-dual and the expression of Spirit (nature) exists as the Perceived Dualistic Reality (PDR) of opposite extremes (black/white, cold/hot, loud/ soft).

The stillness and silence of the presence of the Divine is transcendent and immanent within all things; ever pervasive, yet beyond our dualistic sensory observation, perceptions and evaluations of our environment. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU UNFOLDING
YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE?

Have you ever pondered what you were created to do? Have you daydreamed about being a certain kind of person who smiles from doing what they enjoy? If you haven’t at one time or another, then you are not human. Human beings move forward by feeling the joy from their dreams. They keep focused on what they know they would like to do with their lives but become lost in how to do it.

It becomes a monumental task of choices, education and hard work. They cannot see the forest for the trees because they are surrounded by what others say and do to convince them of what they ‘should’ be doing.

Listening to the chatter and static of others over the silent whispers of the Divine can be most disconcerting. When you tune in the radio to a specific station there are a small band of frequencies and strength of signal for you to align with in order to get a clear signal. If you are off by a little you hear annoying static.

When the loudness of a signal is what determines your alignment, you will not be able to effectively ‘tune-in’ unless it is amplified enough; the proximity to the strength of the broadcasting signal determines your ability to ‘hear’ clearly (much like AM radio). When the frequency of a signal is what determines your alignment, you will not be able to effectively ‘tune-in’ unless it is focused on the exact frequency of the channel; the focus in the frequency of the broadcasting signal determines your ability to ‘hear’ clearly (much like FM radio).

Are you ‘hearing’ too much static? Are you trying to ‘tune-in’ and have difficulty in hearing what you need to do and when you need to do it? The best way to eliminate the static is to regularly immerse yourself in the Divine silence within you each and every day. Go within and meditate to listen to the still small voice of the Divine guiding and directing you to be whom and what you were created to be. Stop trying to be what others are telling you to be and stop trying to be like them. They have their own Divine purpose as do you. You cannot fulfill their purpose and they cannot fulfill yours!

Be the beautiful child of the Most High that you were created to be! Allow that which you ARE to grow and expand and stop listening to the incessant distractions, chaos and superficiality of the outside world. Focus on running YOUR race and NOT the race of others. Be ye therefore whom and what YOU were created to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE?

Do you truly love yourself or do you love what others love about you?

There is a difference! Love the Divine within and you will flow your inner well-being from your heart into your world and there will be no difference.

Be ye therefore Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

LIFT SOMEONE UP

Find a way to lift someone else up today. Encourage them, listen to them or at the least give them a smile of appreciation. Let them know that you know that they are worthy of your love.

That little gift of love will kindle in their heart and allow them to feel good within. That little spark of joy that you share will send Divine love from your heart to theirs.

Both of you will be blessed and both of you will feel good. Isn’t that better than just passing them by without any acknowledgment at all? Be ye therefore sharing of Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONTENT AND
SUBSTANCE

The more that people convolute form and procedure, the more they distract others from the content and substance of an argument and from the simplicity of the solution. A ladder is designed for one to take one step at a time to elevate them higher with each step and get closer and closer to their destination. Without the ladder, one can try to jump on the roof all day long and never get there; or even hurt themselves in the process of trying.

The ladder is the form and the action of stepping from one rung to another is the procedure. The roof is the content and fixing the shingles is the substance. Follow your heart and allow your mind to define and express the guidance from the Divine. The ladder was created as a safe shortcut to allow the completion of your tasks with minimal effort. You can float down a stream immersed in the water and can get injured by the rocks; or, you can get in a row boat and float safely down the stream without being injured.

Tools were created to allow us to perform tasks more safely and rapidly. Form and procedures are there to facilitate the completions of tasks but were never meant to disguise the truth of the content and substance of the tasks. Never allow the form and procedure to outweigh or deny the truth of the content and substance. If you do, you are deluding yourself into believing that the content and substance are not the most important factor of an argument.

When you choose to win an argument on form and procedure, you blatantly reveal that your ego is more concerned with ‘winning’ than proving the truth. Be ye therefore ethical and honorable! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUST THE DIVINE

No matter what anyone says about you; no matter what anyone does to hurt you; no matter what anyone does to bear false witness against you; and no matter what anyone does to deny the truth about you; always remember, trust in the Divine to unfold the truth in Divine order.

Your allowance of such will create harmony in your world. Your trust ignites the revelation of the truth to unfold at the right place; at the right time; and with the right people to fulfill Divine will in Divine order.

It is when you try to control, dominate and manipulate what others say, do and feel that you are resisting your flow of well-being to create beauty in your life. Be ye therefore trusting; no matter what! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ISN'T THAT ENOUGH?

God loves you. The question you should be asking yourself is why isn’t that enough for you?

If it were, you would stop fighting what you don’t want and start allowing what you do want.

You already have everything you need right now to be completely fulfilled.

Divine love is in your heart always; it is you who must be aware of it, release it and share it with others.

Be ye therefore the Divine in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DARKNESS

When you become accustomed to the darkness you are shocked by the light. You either run in fear from it, or run in faith toward it. When you come to realize that the light is always within you and that it was you who squelched it, you come to recognize the gentle nudging of your inner well-being.

Follow your inner guidance and listen to the whispers of the Divine in your heart. It is there that you learn how to allow your inner light to co-create beauty in your life and make it replete with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

Visit your inner sanctum of Divine love each and every day and dip in the pool of inner peace. It is there that you come to understand your Divine purpose and feel the joy of unfolding that purpose in Divine order by sharing Divine love everlasting. Be ye therefore your inner light! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE PYRENEES

A poem by Jean-Henri Sadot/music by Vic Sadot brings to mind the time in 1940 after Jean-Henri Sadot fled from Normandy to the Spanish border and joined the Resistance camps.

He eventually went to Toulon, joined the Free French Navy, and served for 6 years on the cruiser Gloire, which participated in the invasion of Provence in 1944.

THE REASON

You are the reason I am here. What all of you have given me I can never repay. I am so grateful to the Divine to have given me the opportunity to serve all of you every day.

I am so blessed and thankful to all of you for that blessing. May the Divine bless all of you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance each and every day of your life.

May you all live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. I love you all from the bottom of my heart. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

UN-AMERICAN?

There’s much ado about Harry Reid’s comment that the Koch Brothers are un-American:. Let’s examine this statement on its face value. What is it to be un-American? It means to be foreign or opposed to the characters, values, standards and goals of the U.S. [dictionary.com]. What are those characters, values, standards and goals anyway? Generally, it means to commit himself to the political ideology centered on the abstract ideals of liberty, equality and support of the republic (a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them [dictionary.com]).

The motto of the Great Seal of the United States, ‘E pluribus unum’ in fact means "From many, one"; NOT “From one, many.” Anytime ANYONE elevates their selfish motives over the needs of all of us, they are truly UNAMERICAN!!! Our country was established on the ideals of a representative government of the people, by the people and FOR the people. NOT a government of the corporations, by the corporations and FOR the corporations!!! Corporations are entities that ‘veil’ the egos of those who own and manage them. When their absolute power corrupts their egos absolutely, it is at the expense of all of us.

The corporate viewpoint is that all of our resources are limited and that if anyone else has too much access to them, then it takes away from their power. In reality, this IS an omniverse of abundance and UNLIMITED resources. Just because we haven’t effectively tapped those resources doesn’t mean that they are LIMITED!!! We have an abundance of solar and geothermal energy to power this planet for millennia; yet, because a few unscrupulous greedy bastards want us to buy oil through them, we are currently experiencing the global environmental feedback of climate change.

As the character Spock (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) once said, “The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few; or, the one.” When someone controls, dominates and manipulates the resources of this planet, which are our shared legacy, to their own benefit, they are against the ideals, characters, values, standards and goals of the American dream. They are truly UNAMERICAN. In this sense, the Koch Brothers are a scourge to the prosperity of all of us. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

STRIKING A NERVE

It's funny that when you strike a nerve it reacts with a defensive motion. Could it be that what it is reacting to was accepted as true without sensible validation?

Or could it be that the reaction is so pre-programmed that it denies any opposition to its own existence; whether valid or not?

When you defend that which you believe without validating its truth you are fooling yourself at best. You are denying that you were possibly handed a bill of goods because it makes you feel comfortable with yourself.

This is operating from your ego and NOT the Spirit of God. May God have mercy on your twisted soul! Be ye therefore proactive more than reactive! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I AM WORTHY

Each and every day I choose to pray for guidance, listen for that guidance in deep meditation, serve all of life with Divine love and accept complete fulfillment as my Divine blessing.

I am worthy of living in peace and health. I am worthy of living in understanding and wealth. I am worthy of living in joy and prosperity. I am worthy of living in Divine love and abundance.

I choose to live in my Divine blessings each and every day of my life. And so it is! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

VALIDATION OF THE TRUTH

Validation of the truth is NOT what others think. It means to make the time to investigate your beliefs to see if they are true.

It means a corroboration that their meanings actually work in your life and the lives of others. Lip service from others is NOT true validation!

True validation is testing and verifying whether or not your accepted beliefs work for most people in your life AND theirs! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

REACT OR PROACT

We all have the choice to either react (run away from) or proact (run towards) what we observe, perceive and believe is happening to us. The way the brain works is to evaluate our perceptions and act on them in what we deem as appropriate.

This ALWAYS involves choices. We either choose by fear or choose by faith. Our individual ‘reality’ is predicated by what we essentially ‘believe’ is occurring.

Beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts that we have evaluated as being true. When we choose based on knowing instead of believing, we are operating from the Spirit of God and NOT our ego and its pre-programmed beliefs. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PLEASURE AND PAIN

The balance between the Central Nervous System and the Sympathetic Nervous System develops after birth and leans towards the ability for us to learn how to make decisions that affect our seeking of pleasure and avoidance of pain. A child learns this quickly. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR PERCEPTION
OF REALITY

Your perception of 'reality' comes from observing it in your environment. Your 'beliefs' come from your 'perceptions' of it and how you evaluate whether they enforce or threaten your survival.

That is why 'you' are always responsible for your choices; whether you 'believe' they are the best or not.

When you allow the Spirit of God within to guide you, you transcend observation, perception and belief and enter the realm of ‘knowing’.

It is moving from a perspective of being limited to that of being unlimited. Be ye therefore knowing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SETTING YOURSELF
UP FOR A FALL

When you deny that which has been proven time and time again by experimentation, observation, perception, logical evaluation and parsimonious conclusions, you are setting yourself up for a fall.

No matter how much you ‘believe’ you can run east chasing a sunset you will not see one. Facts are facts and interpretations of those facts can differ but never be denied in the light of collective truth.

Validation of your beliefs without careful scrutiny leads to opinions based on ‘observed’ facts that comfort you and make you feel secure and safe.

When you see things for how they truly are and not what you want them to be for your own convenience and self-survival, you start the process of maturity to unfold within you.

Denying that which has been proven to be true time and time again is a child’s game that you will NEVER win. Be ye therefore mature and wise! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOSING MY RELIGION

Don’t you think it’s about time that we all lost our religions and started loving one another? Why? Because the Divine is within each and every one of us and has created us to share Divine love WITH each other…

Life is a series of events that occur as you move forwards in time. These events present situations that you must deal with in your mind and heart. These situations in turn create circumstances that you perceive as affecting your life.

Your behavior is a result of the repeated thoughts you hold as true (beliefs) and the emotions you act on to either move toward what you believe is true or move away from what you don’t believe is true to ‘feel’ fulfilled.

It is an endless race towards living in a state of perceived peace in which you ‘feel’ comfortable in being ‘who’ and ‘what’ you are. Letting go of your beliefs and stepping out of the ‘race’ everyday allows you to experience the truth in just who and what you really are; Divine love in action.

Be that which radiates fulfillment to all and you will be totally fulfilled. That is the wisdom of the ages. How do you do that? Pray for Divine guidance; meditate to listen to Divine guidance; serve yourself and others by sharing Divine love and encouraging all to be at peace with themselves and others.

Be ye therefore perfect by being whom and what you are; Divine love in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MENTAL PROBLEMS

When anyone takes the word of sheepherders from over 2000 years ago as gospel, they have a serious mental problem.

It's not faith they employ; it's the ignorance achieved from living in mediocrity and parroting what they choose to believe more than what they actually know.

Truth comes from going within and listening to your inner divinity more than what you can ever read in a book.

Books might help you to point the way, but it is in the experience of Divine peace, understanding, joy and Divine love that you come to know more than believe.

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

ACTING ON BELIEFS

When we choose to act on a belief we employ behaviors to carry out our actions. From observation, to perception, to evaluation and to beliefs, we make choices as to ‘what’ we observe, how we observe it, how it affects us and what we choose to repeat to ourselves about the meaning of it. Our brains rhythmically scan our inner and outer environments for what pleases us and what we need to avoid.

When these objects of pleasure or pain present themselves on the stage of our minds, we then either react to them or proact from them by choosing to move away or towards them. Our subsequent actions are always the result of the choices we make based on our fear of compromising our self-survival or the faith in something greater than what we perceive.

Whether we choose to believe it or not, our brains generate consciousness by the electro-chemical interactions that occur in maintaining our life processes. As we grow and expand our bodies demand greater and greater energy conversion.

As biological organisms grew in energy conversion from fermentation to photosynthesis to respiration, the next level of our energy conversion comes from our ability to convert our beliefs into Divine knowing and share Divine love in our individual and collective environments.

Spirituality is the state or quality of being dedicated to God and spiritual values; as contrasted with material or temporal ones [dictionary.com]. It is living in an ongoing state of Divine peace despite the appearance of outer chaos and disorder.

It is being able to understand our differences and derive strength and unity from those differences. It is living in joy despite our reactions to what we perceive as evil or unfair. It is choosing to share Divine love with all of God’s creation no matter what we believe is happening to us.

When our choices are predicated on Divine knowing, we are living from the Spirit of God within. When they are predicated by our ego’s demands for self-survival at all costs, we are limiting our scope and perspective to our beliefs; which sometimes are completely erroneous.

Our free will is put into action by the choices we make; whether actively or passively. Choose to do something, and something will happen. Choose to do nothing, and something will happen. You are NOT separate from your environment; you are an inextricable part of it whether you realize it or not.

Your choices are HOW you interact in your environment. Your living in Divine blessings or simply existing in our collective soup is all within your ability to choose what you know over what you believe. Know that your inner well-being is always there to calm you, nurture you and guide you to live in an ongoing awareness of your Divine blessings.

The other choice is to simply exist and be subject to the currents of your observations, perceptions and beliefs. Consciousness gives you the ability to choose how to proceed; it is up to you to make the appropriate choices. Be ye therefore aware enough to always choose Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LADDER OF AWARENESS

You have the ability to choose where to put your ladder of awareness in life. Do you put it on the side of your house to get to the roof where you can see all of what’s around you? Or do you stick it in a deep whole to go further away from an experience of a greater perspective? When you drop that ladder in the hole you have accepted the feelings of doubt. You take the path of least resistance because it is easier to drop the ladder in the hole than to lift it up on the side of the house. Doubt is the feeling of uncertainty because you do not trust in something beyond yourself.

As you descend in the hole it gets darker and you begin to worry. Worrying means that you constrict or strangle the flow of ideas and thoughts that could lead you to a greater understanding of yourself and others; you lack confidence in what is beyond yourself. As you go down further into the hole, you are moving away from the light. In this deep darkness fear comes upon you. You embrace the unlikelihood that what you desire will ever happen because you have cut yourself off from the light of truth. In this state you experience the feelings of impending danger, evil or pain.

If you totally accept this state of being, you come to believe you cannot escape the hole you chose to enter and blame others when they remove the ladder to get to the roof. You remain stuck in your own hole of darkness and despair that you have created and accepted as true. It is when you come to the realization that ‘you’ have created your circumstance; you call out to others to help you get out of the hole. When they drop the ladder down the hole only ‘you’ can climb out of it! You must be certain that you want to approach the light of understanding and take the first step onto the rung of the ladder.

As you ascend and experience more of the light, you gain confidence in your expanding perspective. As you approach the top of the hole you experience the faith in escaping your self-imposed prison. To get out of the hole you must ‘expect’ to get there. You must thoroughly anticipate and look forward to being in the state of complete trust in the Divine where your inherent well-being flows unfettered by your erroneous beliefs. Now that you have escaped your hole, give thanks to those who helped you first.

Then, take the ladder and place it on the side of your house and use certainty, confidence, faith and Divine trust to get to the roof and see the complete picture. Moving toward the light also means that you are moving away from the darkness. Doubt is the initial seed of darkness. Worry is the germinated seed and fear is weed that blossoms into darkness. Certainty is the initial seed of living in the light. Confidence is the germinated seed and faith is the beautiful flower that blossoms into the light.

The essence of the seed is imbued with the expectancy of growth and expansion. If you expect to be negative, you will be negative and live in darkness. If you expect to be positive, you will be positive and live in the light. It is YOUR choice and not anyone else’s. Be ye therefore responsible for your choices and choose Divine trust! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

DOUBTING

If you doubt your inner divinity enough to realize that four men who supposedly wrote the books in the Bible with their names as titles actually wrote them? Were you there? Did you see them write them?

Whether they wrote them or not is not the problem; what is the problem is having trust in men more than the Divine. If you keep looking for a relationship with the Divine outside of yourself you will not make the time to look within for Divine love.

You are an individualized expression of Divine love and until you realize that and share it in your life you will live by what others have told you that you are and not what the Divine has created you to be. Be ye therefore the Divine in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ORIGINS OF THE BIBLE

Every time I speak the truth of the origins of the Bible and how they were mainly man-made contrivances, I get the that "It is the holy word of God" crap thrown at me when the person stating it has NEVER done the research or spent the time studying it.

They blindly accept the false concepts of Sola Fide and Sola Scriptura and act like they KNOW something that you don't. I too, was shocked when I learned the truth in Seminary School. It caused me to see that I should NEVER blindly accept what some preacher with a selfish agenda tells me and that I should always find out the truth on my own. I had to learn Aramaic, Koine Greek and Latin to see how words, concepts and idioms were ‘converted’ into English.

The only consistency that is present in the Synoptic Gospels is the words of Yeshua. Ancillary commentary varies from Matthew to Mark to Luke. Even John’s gospel is markedly different.  Does all of this truly matter? Only to those who choose to ‘separate’ Christians from the rest of the world and NOT try to unify all of us! In that sense, it is the Christian EGO that kicks in and proclaims that the Bible is ‘THE HOLY WORD OF GOD.” Get real!

If you want to believe this, that is your right. However, you obviously are NOT making the time to find out the truth and are blindly BELIEVING what you are being taught. If you have an argument, then present your FACTS and NOT your beliefs. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MATURITY

Maturity is the ability to see things how they are and not be fooled by the spin that others use to dress up the ‘facts’ in order to reinforce their opinions.

In essence, maturity is a condition when someone is fully developed, in perfect condition; it is a state of being ripe.

In other words, you have heard it all before and have learned to discern fact from fiction, opinion from fact and nonsense from reliable testimony. Be ye therefore mature! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ELUDING YOUR WELL-BEING

Have you ever wondered why a great deal of people purposefully eludes their own well-being? Is it because they are not aware of it or is it because they are too comfortable where they are and think it will take too much work to attain it? The reality is that our well-being is always present; it is we who separate ourselves from it by the erroneous beliefs we choose it embrace.

We take the path of least resistance instead of the most allowance. There IS a difference! The path of least resistance is the easiest way that requires the least amount of effort. The path of most allowance is, for some, the hardest way that requires the most amount of effort. Why? Because it requires us to get out of our own way by putting our ego in the back seat and allowing the Divine to steer the wheel through life.

What appears hard to us is a reflection of our erroneous beliefs! We choose to believe that something is too difficult because it appears to involve too much ‘work’; work that we ‘believe’ will be too uncomfortable. The most natural and simple thing to do in life is to allow our well-being to flow through us unfettered by our emotional attachments to our erroneous beliefs. How do we do it?

We give thanks everyday for our blessings; we forgive ourselves and others; we feel sorry for our mistakes and strive to immediately correct them; and, most of all, we share Divine love with everyone we encounter. This opens and clears our channel to receive our inner well-being to bless our lives with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. In turn, we learn to live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore living in well-being! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE REAL DANGER

The real danger in regard to politicians is in our opinion that we know what it is to walk in another's shoes and presuppose what we would do in reaction to their experiences.

We can speculate all that we want, but in order to know we must live in it and not just observe it. What would we do? That will never be known until we do it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PULLED IN

Do you feel that you are being pulled into things that you don’t want to be involved with or have any interest in currently? Are you resisting these things because you have no desire to engage them? Why not allow them to be what they are without fighting their very existence and presence in your life?

Allow them to pass through you without affecting whom and what you are. It might appear hard to do for your ego, but it is NOT hard when you allow your inner well-being to align you with the flow of Divine order.

Remember, if gravity sucks, then anti-gravity blows. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
