BACK WHERE YOU STARTED

Have you ended up back where you started and not knowing how you got there? What is it about your perceived journey that fools you into making the same turns that cause you to end up where you have started?

It all gets back to your choices between following your beliefs or allowing your ‘knowingness’ to guide you. If you repeatedly end up in the same ‘space’ then you are following your beliefs that by now you should know are erroneous.

If they were valid, you would have arrived at a new plateau and NOT back at the beginning lamenting over the time you have perceived you have lost.

Trust in the Divine knowing that is within you every moment of your life and you will never end up back where you started; you will come to one realization after another that moves you forward in fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Discharge any and all beliefs that hinder your progress and choose to follow your inner Divine guidance of ‘knowingness’. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Exotica - Sands of Time

BEING TIMELESS

I am that which is timeless, limitless and loving. Whatever I experience is a result of the choices I make, the attention I apply to it and the feelings that I act on.

My experiences appear as unfolding in time, confined to limits and reactions to my perceptions of love.

What I perceive as real are copies of reality I engage in my mind and heart; this is where I live and when I love from where I live I am sharing that which is timeless, limitless and loving.

I know who, what, where, how, when and why I am. I am that which is abundant and infinite; I AM Divine love! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

POINTS THE WAY

A good friend and guide points the way and allows your path to self-discovery to unfold in Divine order! A selfish ‘friend’ points the way and tells you what you should do without allowing you to discover it on your own.

Planting seeds in another’s mind and heart does not mean that you must cultivate them. The only way something becomes real for anyone is when they discover their own inner divinity and act from it.

Focus on sharing Divine love and trust in Divine order to germinate the seeds of Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW TO PROCEED

How you look at what has unfolded up until today will determine how you will proceed tomorrow. Are the things you have experienced truthful AND valid? Or are they self-fulfilling prophecies based on erroneous beliefs?

The only way you will know for sure is when you make the time regularly to go within and ask for guidance and direction. Depending on your limited perceptions alone is the hallmark of being deceived by the circumstances surrounding your life.

You are not what you experience; however, your experience is what unfolds as a result of either what you believe you are or what you know you are.

Discharge that which undermines your growth and expansion and embrace that which edifies it. It is up to you to be the inner divinity that you are and not the reflection of that which you ‘believe’ you are. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE CHILLS

Liz and I were watching football last night when I got out of bed to go to the bathroom. All of a sudden I got the worst case of the chills I have ever experienced! I was shaking all over my body and felt sick to my stomach. I got back into bed and turned the electric blanket up the “mother” and was still shivering. After getting up several times during the night I went from shivering to sweating over and over again.

What a journey from one extreme to another! It made me think of how we all go from one extreme to another sometimes without paying attention to why we do. In my case, I had caught some bug that decided it was going to dance in my body with heat extremes.

Often, we react to what we perceive are extremes in our lives without knowing just why these extremes are occurring. Did we expose ourselves to some ‘bug’ that we acquired unknowingly? Or did we simply react to what we perceived was happening when in fact we allowed something in without knowing that we did?

Did we accept someone else’s belief without challenging its veracity and validity? Or did we deny what appears to be valid in favor of following an erroneous belief?

Whatever it may be, we ultimately have either allowed our beliefs to rule our lives or we choose to ‘know’ what is actually happening in our environments.

Let go of that which impels you to action in favor of that which propels you forward in being who you are why you are expressing what you are and what you are accomplishing. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYINGS

Accepting who you are starts the process of allowing what you are to be shared with all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It's one thing to respect someone's beliefs and another to challenge those beliefs that hurt the majority of people. Respect for all of life topples what ANYONE believes! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

KNOWING

I just love who you are and I accept who you are. Why? Because if I don’t it demonstrates that I ‘believe’ in who I think and feel you are, and are not what I ‘know’ you are.

What I think and feel about you is truly not your business because it is NOT what you are; it is what I believe you are.

Be that which knows more than believes and you will be more aware of the truth and the validation of the truth more than the blind acclimation of assumptions and opinions.

The truth sets you free from the stranglehold of erroneous beliefs and the validation of the truth ensures that you will stay on the path of knowing more than believing.

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

JUST AS YOU ARE

You are beautiful just as you are. What exists deep in your heart is what has created the grandeur of the omniverse. It has created the very life you are breathing in and breathing out right now.

Your life and the lives of all living beings are to look back on creation and co-create an experience of growth and expansion through Divine perfection.

This comes from the flow of Divine love from your heart into the world around you. The measure of your beauty comes from the willingness, fortitude and expression of Divine love into your reality.

When you selfishly hold back that which is meant to be shared your beauty dwindles into that which is non-perceptible to even yourself.

Step out of your cocoon and metamorphosize into that which maintains its beauty for all to see. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

KINDA?

How can something be ‘kinda’ this or ‘kind of’ that? Isn’t it either this or that? What does it reveal when a person continually uses these terms to describe something that occurs? Is it a way of attempting to be analogous when it is not necessary? Or is it just a figure of speech from a non-committal mind?

Whatever it is using these terms does NOT denote what is actually happening. It is living in a ‘sort of’ world where things ‘kind of’ happen. Do you ‘kinda’ exist, ‘sorta’ exist or just exist? Some might say that this doesn’t matter or perhaps they will say it ‘kinda’ matters.

Who knows? Perhaps we should be more precise in what we observe, perceive and express so that things truly happen for our growth and expansion instead of ‘kinda’ happening? One thing is for sure, if you believe it will ‘kinda’ happen it ‘sorta’ will! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHRISTMAS

First off, Christmas is the 'recognized' birth of Christ even though he was born in late September. It was originally Saturnalia, a Babylonian tradition established by Nimrod; the one who defied God. Who won that battle? According to the story, God did by scattering his people in all directions with different languages at the Tower of Babel. However, Nimrod's mother (whom he had an incestuous relationship with),  had his servants go into the mountains late one evening and cut down a giant fir tree and place it where the sapling was. She had it decorated with silver and gold in honor of Nimrod and convinced their people that it was Nimrod's might (Nimrod means mighty hunter) that made the sapling grew overnight into this giant fir tree. She lied and deceived her people to elevate her son.

Christmas has NOTHING to do with the actual birth of Christ and the Christmas tree has its origins in symbolizing one who defied God. Besides all of this, this country was founded on religious freedom; freedom to practice religion and freedom FROM religion. Anytime religious views get into government and business it is in violation to the First Amendment of our Constitution. Religion, from the Latin, means a binding together of people with common beliefs; it is NOT a social club to beat up or deny the rights of other individuals practicing their freedom to worship and believe AS THEY SO CHOOSE!

No one has the right to deny anyone else their religious freedom. Yet, some pseudo-Christian morons insist their Second Amendment right to bear arms in direct contradiction to what Christ taught is perfectly acceptable! I have adopted saying Happy Holidays in honor of ALL religions. There is NOTHING wrong with respecting the beliefs and rights of everyone. If you argue against that, then you have revealed just how selfish and prejudiced you truly are. May everyone have a blessed holiday season. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ONE DAY

As I was driving one day before Thanksgiving a few years ago it was pouring rain. People were racing here and there going crazy. The market was stuffed with people buying staple items because it might snow tonight and that tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I stopped at Faithful Friends to get some cat food for our outside feral colony and there was a lady holding a little kitten with stitches in its left eye. There was a cone around its head and I asked the Vet Tech what had happened.

She told me that they had to take out its eye because it was too damaged. She didn’t say from what. The lady taking her home was nurse and the smile on her face told it all. I began talking in my baby talk as most cat lovers do and held back the tears for this little baby. She is just starting her life without an eye and she had a loving human taking her home.

To all of those people whose hearts are bigger than their wallets and take care of homeless and sick animals I wish to send you a great big. “Thank you!” You are what thanksgiving is all about. That kitten lost an eye but has a warm bed to sleep in tonight with all the love she can get. God bless everyone who cares for the ‘least of these’. We are all here to help one another and until we collectively realize this great truth, we will not develop respect for all of life. May you and your families be blessed this Thanksgiving; and may the blessings of the Divine be with you always. Love, Dean.

DEALING WITH BULLYING

Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens spends some of his downtime helping kids who deal with bullying. I applaud him for his efforts and the lives he has touched, however, he seems to take the same approach as other causes that ‘fight’ whatever it is they want to stop. They have yet to learn the most important life lesson; what you resist persists. If you want to STOP bullying, then STOP fighting and resisting it! Educate kids in being supportive and kind to each other. His mantra that he teaches the kids is ‘Be kind.” That is great but it has just as much effect as Nancy Reagan’s “Just say no!”

If someone has been abused at home or with friends just teaching them “Be kind” means nothing unless they have experienced kindness and no abuse. The same with a person that has done drugs too much; just saying “no” means nothing to them without an understanding of why they have done them to begin with and the reasons they continue to do them. Glorified platitudes do NOTHING without a scaffolding of understanding!

Teach children interdependence and NOT just independence by being kind to one another; that is NOT fighting ‘bullying’ but allowing it to be undermined by learned behaviors. Teach children mutual-reliance and NOT just self-reliance by serving one another; that is NOT fighting ‘addiction’ but allowing it to be undermined by learned behaviors. Only when we stop resisting and fighting that which annoys us, blocks our progress and stifles our creativity will we know how to create peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

We are in this together and we need to remember what Mother Teresa said; she would attend a pro-peace rally and NOT an anti-war rally. Her wisdom came from the love she shared with the least in God’s kingdom. Stand up for peace, mutual understanding, ongoing joy and Divine love. Stop fighting ‘war’, behavioral aberrances, negativity and hatred. The more you ‘fight’ it, the more it will proliferate! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D

THANK YOU

To all of my friends here on Facebook all over the world, I would like to say “THANK YOU!!!” for all of your support, understanding, kindness and love that you have given to Elizabeth and me these past few years. Interacting with you almost every day has brought joy to our lives. Your friendship, your stories and your humor has given us strength on many an occasion.

If it wasn’t for this forum we might not have ever met most of you. It has given us a window into the lives of people similar to us and different from us; yet one thing we all have in common is the need to communicate, to share and to be a part of the bigger picture. We have given each other the strength to know just what is the truth, what living in the truth can do and that our collective hearts and minds CAN and WILL effect change in this world.

By sharing Divine love we learn to live in joy. By understanding one another we learn that in our differences we are actually quite similar. By living in peace with one another, we have taught ourselves and others that not only is it possible, but it is probable as well. Thank you all from our hearts for being here for us. We sincerely hope that our sharing has helped you as well. May your families live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love ever more! We LOVE you! ~Liz and Dean

WHAT GIVES?

CAN YOU HANDLE IT?

After all of the challenges we have been facing the past few months, everyone keeps saying, “God never gives you more than you can handle.” BULLSHIT!!! God isn’t giving us these problems; these problems came because we took a stand, told the truth and have had to deal with pure evil trying to bring us down and lose our home.

Being responsible means that you DON”T blame God for the challenges in your life; you accept responsibility for them. Just like the ex-friend here on FB claimed that we stole money, lied and we are now paying the price for that, we won’t buy into any concept that denies the truth.

We know that we told the truth and did the right thing. We know that Aunt Ella’s attorney is operating in collusion with her financial advisor and the courts. We know that we were defeated in court not because we told the truth, but because we didn’t have legal representation. We know just how corrupt the courts and the attorneys are in Delaware. We will continue to expose all of them; not out of revenge, but out of living in the truth. The only way evil continues is when you allow it to proliferate.

When you live in fear you will be subject to the dispensation of evil. We will continue to stand our ground. God is NOT giving us more than we can handle! Our faith and trust in God is greater than ANY appearance of loss that evil sows. Evil WILL reap what it sows just as sure as the Divine shares Divine love with all of us. Blessings to all of you this joyous holiday season and we are thankful for your prayers and support through our crisis this past year. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEATEN BEFORE YOU STARTED

When you believe that you are born a sinner and have come short of the glory of God you are beaten before you have ever started. How can you ever hope to be ONE with God if you are stained or tainted with original sin? What is original sin? It is “a depravity, or tendency to evil, held to be innate in humankind and transmitted from Adam to the [human] race in consequence of his sin.” It is based on a STORY handed down through generations that has been blindly accepted by so many that it is considered true without ANY testing of its validity.

The believers say that it is based on ‘faith’. Hogwash! It is based on what the original Christian leaders promulgated because they wanted to be the middlemen between humankind and God. It was a way to keep the massed down by making them believe that they did not possess an inner divinity. If people knew of their inner divinity, why would they support a church and priests? It is based on the teachings of the Pauline Gospel, which promoted disdain of homosexuals, inequality of women and the acceptance and fostering of slavery.

Paul had his own gospel and his own agenda. Who do you believe? Christ or Paul? If you choose Paul, like many do, then you are dooming yourself to being beaten before you have started. Sure, Paul said many beautiful things about Christ but he was ‘conditioned’ by his Pharisitical training and beliefs as well. If you choose to believe in original sin and that you will never be pure enough through righteous acts toward all of life you are beaten before you have even started.

You run toward faith in a false God as your anchor of your ‘adopted’ belief and say to others, “It’s in the Bible.” I ask you, “Where is it in the Bible? Who said it? What agenda did they have? And why would they say this to begin with?” If you accept any Biblical ‘truth’ without verifying its validity you are blatantly fooling yourself. God does NOT foster derision; God created beauty and it is the lack of understanding of just whom and what God is in humankind’s belief systems that has caused the problems in the ‘original sin’ doctrine.

You ARE a child of the Most High and you are beautiful, pure and perfect. It is your beliefs about yourself and others that look toward imperfections in order to justify your own existence as being better than others by your ‘righteous’ behavior. No one is better than anyone else and EVERY life has a Divine purpose. See the perfection in the Spirit of God within all of life and respect its right to live, love and be fulfilled. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GETTING AWAY WITH IT

Have you ever wondered why those who step on others, hurt people and do whatever they want regardless of who it affects seem to get away with it? Do you think it is because they are just so brazen and subtle at the same time and fool people into believing that they are something other than what they are? Or is it because most people don’t think they can do anything about their aberrant behaviors? Whatever it may be they ‘appear’ to get away with things because they are not only fooling others, they are also fooling themselves. They are living a façade that is rooted in their ego and is so entrenched that they actually believe they are doing good for others by being in their lives. They cannot and will not see the errors of their ways because it would contradict the façade they have created.

The bottom line is that they are selfish, self-centered and motivated only to increase their perceived ‘station’ in life; usually by the constant yearning for acquiring as much money as they can to wield power over others. They are shallow in personality, hollow in soul and superficial at best. You can always tell by digging deeper and asking them questions that require abstract thought. If they won’t engage you, they are hiding the fact that they fear that you will discover just who they really are. Their façade is everything to them because it reinforces their warped belief that they are all that.

Plant a seed of Divine love within them and go about your way. Divine order will unfold that seed if they learn to align it someday. Align yourself with genuine people who truly care about others. That is where you will grow and nurture your experience of Divine love. If aberrant people ask you to know more about what you have experienced, share it with them and do not allow their interaction with you to dampen your spirit or cause you to react with negative emotions. Their inability to share Divine love should pass through you without affecting your peace. If it doesn’t, then you have allowed their negativity to make you react and distract you from unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RUN OVER

When honest and decent people are run over by the legal system it is a wake-up call to everyone. You might be next! When pompous asses in robes prance around and decide in favor of who pays them the most money they are criminals at best.

Don’t let their deception and supposed power fool you or imprison you. Take them down with the keys on your keyboard and expose them for the prevaricators, manipulators and vipers that they are.

Spare them nothing because they will steal your home or incarcerate you the first chance that they get. They are evil and NEED to be stopped. Speak up and let everyone know just how crooked they are. It’s about time that they got their just desserts; tough love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BE THAT

Be that which you desire the most. Some would say that it is easier said than done. Actually, it is easier done than said. Why? Because that desire is a seed that was planted in your heart by the Divine for you to water it, nurture it and cultivate it into a complete expression of Divine love. How do you germinate that desire? By giving it away to another you release Divine love from your heart to activate that seed.

In sharing that which you desire it becomes real to you. It comes out of your inner spirit and blossoms in the outer world. Speaking it into existence is part of the process but sharing it with others is what activates its growth within you. Your deepest desires are gifts from the Divine because you were created to express those gifts.

Stop listening to what others say you should do and be what God created you to be. You ARE a divine co-creator and when you share Divine love from your heart you ARE using the most powerful energy in the omniverse to create reality. Love is where you have come from; love is what you are here to express; love is where you will go to when you refold into the omniverse. Be that love NOW. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A GIFT

Spirituality is like a gift you’ve been anticipating under your holiday tree. You wonder what’s in the box and you pick it up and shake to see how it sounds and how it moves to help you determine what it is. Once it is open you now know what it is and there is no longer a mystery of what it is. You have been blessed with the gift after experiencing the wonder of what it was. You can re-wrap the gift once it has been opened, but the element of surprise and initial discovery is like trying to un-ring a bell. Once the bell has been rung the sound of it is heard and it dissipates into your environment.

The only way to get the wonder back is for you to re-wrap the gift and give it to someone who doesn’t know what it is. Now they have the wonder of discovery and the element of surprise. The joy you had received from the anticipation and the subsequent revelation is now theirs. It is much the same with the gift of Divine love. Once you discover it within you it reveals your inner joy. Once you share it with others they discover their inner joy and when they share it they pass along that joy to many others.

The peace, understanding and joy of living in Divine love are contagious and spread fractaly. The more you give the gift, the more it blesses everyone in your environment and the more it blesses you with that which it contains; the peace of fulfillment, the understanding of your environment and the joy of living. Give the gift that keeps on giving and your life will be a blessing to you and others eternally. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MAKES ME FEEL GOOD

A man and his wife are walking down the alcohol aisle of a supermarket in California and he grabs a 12 pack and places it in the cart that she is driving. She says, “Now honey, that is a waste of money and we are on a budget. You have nothing to show for it after it is gone except feeling tired and listless.”

The husband begrudgedly looks at his wife while mumbling under his breath and puts the 12 pack back on the shelf. The couple moves from aisle to aisle until they go down the lotions aisle. The wife smiles and says, “Oh, honey! I want to get this lotion because it makes me feel so good and I look so beautiful!”

The husband grabs the bottle and looks at the price saying. “So does the beer and for half the price!” ~As told by Kathie Lee Gifford.

TEACH ME TO UNDERSTAND

A man was alone walking through the Mojave Desert in California when he stumbled across a lamp in the sand. He picked it up and rubbed off the dirt on the outside and a Genie appeared. The Genie said, “I will grant you one wish.” The man said, “I thought I got three wishes!” The Genie said, “No, I can only grant you one wish.”

After a little while the man said, “My fiance just split up with me and I want her back. I know that if we go to Hawaii, I can win her back. However, she is afraid of flying. Could you build a bridge from Los Angeles to Hawaii so I can drive her there!” The Genie responded, “Do you know what you are asking?

Do you understand the amount of work required to get the manpower, the concrete and the ships to accomplish this monumental task?” The man looked at the Genie and said, “OK, let me think some more on this one.” After a few minutes the man said, “OK, I’ve got it! Can you teach me how to understand women?” The Genie replied, “Would you like that bridge to be one lane or two lanes?”

Never forget who and what you are! You are not what you think you are. You are not what you feel you are. You are not what you believe you are. You are not what say you are. You are not how you act. You are not how you behave.

You ARE the essence, presence and fulfillment of Divine love; the eternal flow of which is your ever-present state of well-being.

Be that flow that edifies your life and the lives of others instead of identifying with what are the by-products of your ego.

Know your Oneness with that which has created all of creation. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUST YOUR SOURCE

If there is only one thing I can impart to anyone to make their lives fulfilled is for them to trust their Source more than their egos.

Listen to the Divine within and KNOW what to do. Your life unfolds in the exact proportion to how much you trust in the Divine.

If you ignore that which has given you life you are cutting yourself off from your well-being and the beneficial perceptions of natural order.

If you embrace that which has given your life you are aligning yourself with your well-being in Divine order.

Be ye therefore perfect by trusting completely in the Divine! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SAYING THINGS
ABOUT YOUR FUTURE

How many times during the day do you say things about your future? Are you always expecting good things to happen for you sometime in the future? Do you realize that if you always speak about what will happen that you are not living in the now? For example, some say ‘if’ I get this, then I ‘will’ get that. Or ‘when’ this happens, then that ‘will’ happen. Another term is this ‘will’ happen ‘eventually’ ‘if’ I keep doing that. ‘Whenever’ this happens, then that ‘will’ happen.

When you use the words ‘will’ and ‘won’t’ you are ‘predicting’ your future based on the facts you have accepted as true. If you intend to do something in the future you think about a plan of how to do it; your ‘intention’ sets the tone and you say you are ‘going to’ do this or that; “I am going to meditate today.” When you make an ‘arrangement’ with someone else you discuss exactly what you are ‘going to’ do.

For example, you would use the ‘present continuous tense’ to talk about the arrangements; “I am doing this or that tomorrow.” In the ‘present simple tense’, we refer to future events that are out of our perceived ‘control’; “The election occurs tomorrow.” In the ‘present perfect continuous tense’ you would say, “I have been praying all day.” In the ‘past perfect continuous tense’ you would say, “I had been praying all day.” The ‘future continuous tense’ says, “I will be going to serve others at the food bank tomorrow.” In the ‘future perfect tense’ you would say, “Tomorrow, I will have been praying for a week about this or that.” Finally, the ‘future perfect continuous tense’ says, “When I turn 60, I will have been meditating for over 40 years.”

Now that I have most of you totally confused, why have I laid out this mini-grammatical lesson? It’s actually very simple; we respond to the tenses of words subconsciously and store them away as past, present or future events in regard to the subject we are thinking about. We say the words that we are thinking and feeling and ‘how’ we say them sets the tone for how we will react to them. Instead of saying, “If we get the money” or ‘when we get the money” we should say “we are getting the money” in the present tense. This polarizes your statement by being here now and not ‘putting it off’ to some future time.

The subconscious mind accepts this statement as true and your awareness opens up to the opportunities that are bringing money to you right now. It isn’t that you are ‘attracting’ pieces of paper to drop in your mail slot; it is your awareness of where those pieces of paper are that expands. The natural state of your existence is based on a continuous flow of well-being. It is by your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, actions and behaviors that you ‘interrupt’ that flow and settle for mediocrity.

Every day say the following in the present tense:

I AM healthy! (because that is your natural state)

I AM wealthy! (because that is your natural state)

I AM prosperous! (because that is your natural state)

I AM abundant! (because that is your natural state)

I AM peaceful! (because that is your natural state)

I AM understanding! (because that is your natural state)

I AM joyous! (because that is your natural state)

I AM fulfilled in Divine love! (because that is your natural state)

By making these declarations your subconscious mind accepts them as real over a consistent period of time. It increases your awareness of the ever-present opportunities that have always been there; it was you who weren’t seeing them because of your lack of awareness of them. Once you ‘know’ they are there, it is up to you to ALLOW them to be in your life.

Make declarative statements each and every day in order to accept what those statements represent and allow them to be by being grateful for the blessing of your awareness of them. Use your power of the spoken word to declare what you are experiencing in the moment.

Don’t utter words that put your happiness and fulfillment off into the future. Accept where you are now and embrace this moment declaring your fulfillment right now. Be that which you are and know you are fulfilled in this moment. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SEEK WISDOM

“But if anyone of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God who gives to everyone simply, and does not reproach, and it will be given to him.” ~James 1:5 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

Do you actively seek wisdom? Or are just waiting for it to drop in your lap? The fact of the matter is the wisdom comes from understanding that you have to let go of all the knowledge you have acquired because it is based on an understanding of information and NOT on the information itself.

We perceive the Spirit of God in the Temporal Parietal Junction (TPJ) of our brains; the TPJ is the navigator of our awareness of God. If we interfere with the input of the TPJ it changes our perception of reality and creates what we perceive as ‘out of body experiences’. It’s not that we actually leave our bodies; it is that we ‘think’ we leave them. We experience a sense of timelessness and come to know that there truly is a ‘cosmic destiny’ for our lives.

What we will be in the future is what drives us now. If time is a holographic projection of information from the future through the present and into the past, then what we come to know about our ‘cosmic destiny’ has already occurred in the future and we are opening our awareness every day from the possibilities of its attainment to the probabilities of its fulfillment.

Children feel the essence of spirit when they are young. As they grow older children feel the Spirit answering their prayers ‘after’ their brain develops an awareness of self. Knowing who you are in your perception of eternity comes from an understanding of self and the knowing of SELF.

It is our belief that activates our awareness of God and it is through a consistent and ongoing meditative practice that we come to ‘know’ of God. When we know the existence of the Divine we are gifted with the wisdom that surpasses all understanding. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MINI AND MICRO WORLDS

Are you aware of the mini and micro worlds? Do you realize that right now tiny creatures are crawling on your body? Does this bother you or do you just ignore the tiny in favor of the large? Do dust mites and other micro-organisms on your body affect how you plan your day? Hardly! There are many things we ignore in our lives because they are not significant enough to focus our attention on and don’t ‘figure in’ to our plans.

When you ignore that which is insignificant it has no effect on you unless you attribute significance to it. Why? Science has shown time and again that consciousness affects our awareness of the objects we perceive or don’t perceive. There are many events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and behaviors that occur in our environments; when we attach significance to them for our self-survival they become real to us.

When we don’t attach any significance, they become what we ignore as not being pertinent to our self-survival. This can be dangerous because our determination of the significance of something does not mean that it cannot affect our well-being. Sometimes it is what we have ignored that affects our recognition and existence within well-being.

Be aware of your environment; both inside and out. See beyond your senses and come into a knowing of life that doesn’t ignore what exists in all of creation. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GOD NEVER PUNISHES

An all loving God NEVER punishes you, forsakes you or TESTS you! It never demands your loyalty, requires your worship or insists that you make sacrifices. If you choose to believe what some delusional tribal people thousands of years ago claimed that they experienced and follow how they say you MUST live, then that is your right.

However, when you choose to take that ‘right’ and use it to beat up on people in your religion and outside of your religion, you are operating from your ego more than the Spirit of God!

Learning to discern what the ‘law’ says and how you should ‘behave’ concerning the law are two different things. We are created in love, by love and love is our essence of well-being. God has given us the free will to choose to align ourselves with Divine order and live a fulfilled life OR go against that current and listen to our egos and its selfish demands.

God is NOT human! God is eternal; beyond time and space. God is ever present (Omnipresent), all knowledgeable (Omniscient), all powerful (Omnipotent) and all creative (Omniparient).

The Spirit of God does NOT possess the human qualities of earthly kings who were capricious and ego minded. Those are human qualities that we have attributed to God and NOT what God is! God is transcendent and immanent; meaning beyond your sensual perception, yet within your spiritual heart.

Allow your understanding of God to not be tempered with human characteristics; if you do, you are living from your ego’s need to bring God down to your own level. You do NOT command the Divine and the Divine does NOT command you.

The Divine gives you the playing field and it is up to you, by your power of choice, to align yourself or go against the current. Stop listening to religions, books and charismatic people who CLAIM to know what God wants for you! Go within and listen to what God ‘suggests’ that you do.

Always remember that the Divine has given you the power of choice. What a dynamic and loving creator! When we see trials, tribulations and problems it is from our perceptions that we accept them as real.

When we see beauty, peace and love it is from our knowing that we allow ourselves to live in Divine order. The greatest gift we have is our power of choice that comes from Divine love.

Choose to be that which you were created from, that which heals you and that which is your essence. Be Divine love in action! Only then you are being the perfection that God has created! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

MORE SAYINGS

When we all work together to feed others, live in peace and respect our environments in our own communities we are doing our part in our corner of the world. It starts with each one of us doing our part at home and reaching out into the world. We CAN do it together! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is all of the brilliant minds and loving hearts here on FB that inspires me every day. Your interaction with me stimulates my creativity and blesses me with the impetus to let go, listen and type. Thank you all and God bless all of you! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Small acts of kindness and service add up to big acts of community welfare when we work together for the mutual growth and expansion of all. Start where you are and share Divine love with all. It will grow and expand into more blessings of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Are you superstitious? Do you not step on the cracks of the sidewalk or wish by a Four Leaf Clover? Can it actually help putting faith in a superstition when the Divine is blessing you right now? Allow that which is ALWAYS blessing you to move natural order for you to be continually blessed. Live in Divine love and know what blessing is all about! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

How is being a simple majority a 'day of infamy'? It should have been that all along. Supermajority is nothing more than minority control. The good ole boys are FINALLY on their way out and more progressive people are working together to live in the Kingdom of God instead of the Kingdom of Hell (Corporate control)! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

As a great deal of rappers call themselves ‘gangstas’, I have a more accurate translation for that term: STREET PUNK is more like it. When ego takes control, why would anyone in their right mind listen to their bullshit unless their own ego needs to be fed by the ‘gangsta’ mindset? Being cool isn’t being an outlaw; it is being a decent person who respects others AND themselves enough to serve everyone with Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Those who nay say without reading the law have nothing to say; even though what they say might be louder than most!

Those who nay say the written or spoken truth without validating it through thorough research have nothing to say; even though what they say might be louder than most! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Being rich comes from a deep understanding of giving, being generous and being supportive. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Every night that you experience the peace of the Divine is blessing you with Divine love. Be at peace, dear friends and live in Divine love now and evermore. God bless you and yours this joyful holiday season. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
