GETTING OFFENDED

Ego gets offended and resists that which is perceived as attacking you. That is its natural reflex response because its job is to protect you at all costs.

At the moment you react with self-survival trigger yourself to remember one thing; what is happening is a result of someone trying to control, dominate and manipulate you and your ego gets ‘offended’; especially when you are trying to help others and are getting attacked.

Feel Divine love in your heart at this moment. Know that Divine love is within them and they are acting ‘badly’ towards you. They are not ‘bad’; they are acting badly. Awaken the Divine love in others by sending them love and moving on. Their appraisal of you is just that; their ‘appraisal’ of you and NOT you. As we all mirror our intentions and react with one another, find your inner peace first.

Move towards understanding that they see you through their filters of fear and are trying in their own way to elevate their own ‘meaning’ in life. Feel the joy of being in peace and in employing Divine understanding to live in Divine love. Always move toward health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

It IS your inner well-being; it is what you truly are: Divine love! Believing you are not is allowing your ego to command and deceive you with its selfishness. It is your choice; choose wisely. Be ye therefore wise! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I AM Like
by Stephen "Katriel' Wise

NO EXPECTATIONS,
PLENTY OF DISAPPOINTMENTS!

When you have no expectations for a beautiful life you will always have plenty of disappointments, surprises and lack of complete fulfillment.

As the Creator EXPECTED creation to come into being, nothing in life gets manifested in alignment with Divine order unless you expect it to happen. Expectancy is the key that opens the door to Divine allowance.

Expect to manifest the seeds that the Divine planted in your heart by watering your Divine desires with sheer passion!

Go inward and proact by allowing that which you truly are to create a life for you replete with Divine abundance! Be ye therefore expectant! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FOR A SEASON

Those who deliberately lie, cheat or steal to take advantage of others will do so for a season. That season might be a long time in your opinion but that which hurts others will receive what it has sown in Divine order.

They will experience that pain and suffering that they have sown unto others, rest assured. The Divine is just, loving and forthright to those who truly help others.

The Divine never tests you; the Divine allows you to experience the depth of hurt to realize your inner divinity. Develop the inner strength and resolve that if you have been victimized by some aberrant ego, that they will surely pay one day for their aberrances.

It is not up to you to see to it that they pay; they will be victim to the unfolding of propriety in Divine order. Don’t allow the lies, cheating and stealing of others make you into a victim.

Allow Divine order to move through you to create the perfect unfolding of your Divine purpose. Let go of your reactions to the aberrances of others and live free in the beauty of Divine love! Be ye therefore free! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BEING IN LOVE

What does it mean to be in love? Is it just “a deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person? One that is arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness? [The Free Dictionary]”

Being in love is being at peace in your heart with whom and what you are and whom and what they are. It is reaching a level of Divine understanding that recognizes that you care enough for the other person to help them realize their dreams; whether  they are with you or not.

It is living in a state of ongoing joy that opens your heart to Divine order. It is allowing the well-being of Divine love to move through you and bless both of you.

Being in love is the epitome of human kindness. It blesses you and others with the joy of living in Divine love. Be ye therefore in love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

As you all well know, I write what comes to me from my inner spirit. It is the spirit working through me that gives me the words that I write. Sometimes I can’t type fast enough to get it all. I am grateful to the Divine each and every time people are moved by what has been given to me. It gives so much meaning to my life and it gets me through my day.

I don’t care what others say about me, what they think about me or what they feel about me. I am not here for a popularity contest. I am here to share what has been given to me. If you like it and it helps you, I am glad. If you don’t like it and it conflicts with your beliefs, then so be it. I have spent many years of my life getting over erroneous beliefs and following my inner Divine guidance.

My prayer for all of you is that you will as well. I love you all and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my writings and supporting me. You all have blessed me; even the ones who disagree with me. You have taught me a great deal as well. Be ye therefore open! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROTESTING ABERRANCE

Protesting aberrance is what opens the doors and shines the light on back room deals that hurt others.

Standing firm on the truth means defending what is right, just and life-giving. If you remain silent with aberrance you are condoning it.

Darkness exists because of the absence of light. Shine forth your light into the world by being truthful, forthright and caring.

You are here to share Divine love; not just keep it for yourself! Be ye therefore revealing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO HORSE LOGIC PLEASE!

Abundance in procedures does not mean that the end result is flawed. If you believe that, then I suggest that you stop using horse logic. Sometimes it takes enormous monitoring of the details to prevent the aberrant and greedy from taking advantage of the loopholes to pad their wallets and manipulate public opinion.

If you believe that the devil is in the details, you are correct. Details are required to check the evil that humankind sometimes displays. Take Obamacare, for example. Just because there are many procedures and documentation to comprehend means more that they are needed than not.

Why? Because the pattern of evil begins when others are not looking! Evil proliferates when it distracts others by telling them to look in one direction while they are doing something else where you are not looking. The old shell game starts with calling it ‘Obamascare’ to implant feelings of fear.

Never trust ANYONE who uses fear as a tactic to control, dominate and manipulate your feelings and beliefs. It reveals that they have their own agenda more than the truth. Be ye therefore discerning! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A GOOD DAY!

Everyday above ground is a good day! Waking up, smelling the coffee and breathing in life is a Divine gift.

Be thankful for that gift and share it with others. You are the Divine in action; express your inner divinity!

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

THE IDEALS OF LOVE

Without the ideals of Divine love unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order you will live your life under the veil of your demanding ego. It will trick you, con you and deceive you into believing that it knows what is best for you.

Going within each and every day to commune with the Divine lowers that veil and blesses your life with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Divine love IS your stream of well-being that brings you peace, understanding and joy with each and every breath.

Trust the Divine to fulfill the dreams that were planted in your heart by following Divine guidance over your ego’s yearning to control, dominate and manipulate your world. Be ye therefore trusting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

INSTANT DEATH

Having weapons accessible to the unstable leaves the doorway open to instant death. Argue for your right to have power over life and death and you will find yourself in situations that force you to make that choice.

Mental intelligence is NOT equivalent to Emotional intelligence. Knowing the difference between right and wrong makes no difference when your emotions are out of control.

A stable society maintains checks and balances for those who assert this power. We need to insist that they be monitored and enforced effectively, or we are putting everyone at risk. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

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

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

RELAX IN DIVINE PEACE

May you relax in the peace of the Divine every day; may you float in the understanding that you are spirit expressing an illusion in your mind; may you feel the joy of living in your heart; may you live in Divine love everlasting.

Your allowance or resistance of well-being is reflected in your dynamic states of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Stop resisting that which is NATURALLY yours and start allowing that which is GRACEFULLY yours!

If you truly desire to live in your Divine purpose unfolding in Divine order, then expect it to manifest it by feeling the joy in your heart from the ongoing imagination of it in your mind. Be ye therefore imaginative and joyous! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ARE YOU IN PAIN?

Are you in pain regarding human sufferings and destruction?  Do you want to withdraw in disgust and exhaustion from the destruction, suffering and power motives of apparently selfish individuals?

Your feelings are completely normal. We all feel that within at times. It is the disgust with ignorance, selfishness and disdain for the sanctity of life in others that pains us. When we feel this way, our mantra should become 'all is well in Divine order’.

If we don't experience the contrast of dualism, how would we know that we are ONE? Our immersion in the pattern of omniversal life creates the contrast that allows us to ‘choose’ that which contributes to life over that which takes it away.

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

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

DO YOU FEEL GOOD
ABOUT YOURSELF?

Why do we feel alive when we ‘desire’ something? What is it about pondering our desires that make us feel good? Is it because we are selfish and self-indulgent or is it because we are striving for something better than what we are experiencing around us? Our inner Divine desires are truly ‘of the Father’ (Latin etymology). They are the seeds of our individual Divine purpose that were planted in our hearts to unfold, grow and expand into our true meaning in Divine order. They are our ‘inner compasses’ of direction that moves our beings from the center of our individual inner spirit.

Our desires create feelings and beliefs within us to experience joy when we accomplish and fulfill those desires. We all desire to feel good about ourselves, our lives and our accomplishments. It is inherent in our beings to vibrate in harmony with that which ‘blows our skirt up’. It is not about the attaining of the objects of our desires, but about the joy we ‘feel’ from actualizing those desires that matters. The idea here is not to succumb to the ego’s yearnings to ‘overcome’ perceived obstacles to fulfillment, but to ‘appreciate’ the fact that those desires do make you feel good about yourself. Your inner desires are from your spirit and your selfish yearnings are from your ego. They are NOT the same thing!!!

When you succumb to and act on your ego’s yearnings you are ‘resisting’ Divine guidance and NOT appreciating it. Appreciation is the acknowledgement of the highest value in something and the feelings of gratitude for being able to understand that your well-being is always present within you; it is you that CHOOSES to accept this or not. In order to fulfill your Divine desires you must first be at peace with whom and what you are. You must develop an ongoing communion with the Divine in order to receive Divine guidance. This guidance leads to a greater understanding of what you need to do and when you need to do it. The result of this is an inner joy in knowing that your Divine desires are already fulfilled when you live everyday in Divine love.

You no longer allow your ego to make you feel that if you do not know ‘how’ things will unfold that you need to worry about it. Worrying is praying for what you do not want because you choose to believe that it ‘might’ happen. When you doubt your ongoing connection to your inner well-being your next step is to worry about what ‘might’ happen that is NOT favorable to your joy. Soon fear of negative outcomes takes over and you begin to ‘believe’ the worst outcome instead of trusting in the Divine to unfold the ‘best’ outcome. This is just how your ego fools you into believing that you are NOT continually connected to your well-being.

Don’t allow what ‘appears’ to be detrimental to determine your resolve toward fulfilling your ideals of Divine perfection. When you listen to anyone or anything that tells you that you are imperfect, you are denying your Divine perfection. Change the word imperfect to ‘I’m perfect’. Why? Because the Divine did NOT make a mistake when you were created to be just whom and what you are. Be ye therefore Divine perfection! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PLANTING SEEDS

As I plant seeds of love into my posts I feel the joy of helping others and the pain of expressing it. My dedication to sharing the blessings the Divine has given me has been characterized by some as egotistical and vain; others as caring and loving. It doesn’t matter to me what I am characterized as, I know whom and what I am. I am an individualized expression of the Divine and I have to share freely what has been given to me.

When I get too busy to write I hurt inside. I so enjoy sharing my heart with all of you; whether you are true friends or ‘friends’ that are out to undermine me. I write what I feel that the Divine wants me to say. I don’t sit here diagramming sentences and seeking the proper grammar consistently; I write what pops into my head. As I have said many times before; if the thoughts are good and life-giving, I know they come from the Spirit of God. If they are negative and life-destroying, it is my ego that must be put in check and listen to Divine guidance.

I am here to share with all of you; no more, no less. Yes, I sell books and have no problem doing it. I have worked hard writing everyday for the past five years and have loved being immersed in it. When you are a writer you write and you get paid for it. It takes a great deal of time; research, composition and publishing all take time. Sharing with all of you blesses me implicitly and I share that explicitly with others throughout my day. As I plant seeds here in my writings, I take the seeds all of you have shared with me and nurture them in my heart. Knowing all of you has blessed me immeasurably and I thank you all for your love and support. May the Divine always bless all of you and your families! Be ye therefore sowing the seeds of greatness! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHO THEY ARE

I believe in allowing others to be who they are as they afford me the same respect to be whom and what I am. I know that this is the natural order of all things and those who don't will realize it only when they stop listening to what their ego says and start listening to the guidance from the Divine.

The Divine has created us all just as we are and no one has the right or duty to make anyone feel uncomfortable about whom and what they are; let alone defy the Creator's wisdom in manifesting his creation.

Don't overstep your bounds by telling others how they should live; and how they should love. We are all children of the Most High. Don't you think we should start being what we are instead of what others say we 'should' be?

The Divine does NOT make mistakes and you will keep making mistakes until you realize this. Be ye therefore allowing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE DOOR SWINGS INWARD

When you finally allow yourself to be just whom and what you were created to be something divine happens: The door to Divine wisdom swings inward and you begin an inner journey of self-discovery and living in Divine love.

You will experience inner peace, Divine understanding, complete and utter joy and Divine love everlasting. Be the divine child of God that you are; allow Divine love to move through you creating beauty in your life.

It doesn’t matter what you have done in the past, what you doing now or what you will be doing in the future. What matters is that you live in Divine love everlasting. Be ye therefore divine! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TUNING IN

So what exactly is keeping you from living a fulfilled life replete with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love? What is keeping you from experiencing health, wealth, prosperity and abundance? Is it your desires, your beliefs or both?

It turns out that your inner Divine desires are, say, tuned to 106.7 on your FM dial and your beliefs are tuned in at 88.7. Living completely in fulfillment requires an alignment between your desires and your beliefs. You can have all the passionate desire to be a singer, but if you don’t believe that you can be successful at it, it will not come into fruition in an accelerated manner. You will have opportunities pass you by because you don’t believe you are ready or you don’t expect it to happen.

Your strong desire can still overshadow any negative beliefs in yourself; however, the road to success will be fraught with difficulties that you have created. You must allow your Divine good and ever-present well-being to flow through you by sharing Divine love every day.

If you don’t, you are stopping up the dam of free-flowing desire by your limiting and critical beliefs. Tune your beliefs from 88.7 into perfect alignment with 106.7 by immersing yourself in Divine peace every day; listening to and following the guidance of Divine understanding; embracing Divine joy; and living every day in service to others by sharing Divine love.

If you want to experience complete fulfillment in your life you must align your beliefs with your desires each and every moment. Trusting in the Divine leads to an inner knowing which guides your Divine purpose to unfold easily and effortlessly in Divine order.

Listen to your heart when your mind is confused; listen to your mind when your heart is hurting. Align your beliefs with your desires by balancing your heart with your mind. You do this by allowing your inner spirit to guide and direct you despite what your selfish ego demands. Be ye therefore tuned in! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT IS SELFISHNESS, ANYWAY?

Selfishness is an inner state of being devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one's own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others. It is characterized by or manifesting concern or care only for oneself: looking to benefit only oneself; to be full of self [dictionary.com]. Is being selfish always negative? Is it a state of the ego to follow its yearnings more than your Divine desires? Or is it a choice to edify your being by becoming interdependent in your growth and expansion and the growth and expansion of others?

If your ego continually ‘takes command’ in order to control, dominate and manipulate others and reality to effect ‘ONLY’ your benefit, you are being selfish. If your ego allows the guidance from the Spirit of God to lead your steps and manifest action that benefits yourself AND others, then you are being selfish in the sense that you are allowing Divine love to move through you to become a better person to yourself AND others!

When you are selfish enough to allow your well-being to guide you, move you and bless you, it is a heartfelt choice of living in Divine love. It blesses you AND others because you are allowing your inner well-being to support the interdependency of all of life. Be selfish with your Divine desires and unselfish with your ego’s yearnings.

This balance will create an awareness and flow of your well-being into the expression of your Divine purpose growing and expanding with Divine love while being expressed in Divine order. Aligning ‘you’ with your well-being (YOU) blesses you AND others. Be ye therefore divinely selfish! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AWAKENING

Move toward that which awakens your mind and heart to your inner spirit. It is there that you will choose to know more than believe, expect more than disregard and allow more than resist.

Go within into the cornucopia of Divine abundance and live from your center of well-being.

Your Divine purpose will unfold in Divine order when you share Divine love with all whom you meet. Be ye therefore abundant! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BE WHO YOU ARE

Be who you are no matter what anyone tells you. If you truly want to be happy, you must do what makes you happy. You can do it.

Be nice; be kind; be loving. Your individual measure of happiness is in direct proportion to how much you respect yourself and what you want to experience in life.

Be ye therefore in love with the Divine within! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRAVERSING THE GAUNTLET

What appears to be fair often comes through traversing the gauntlet of what appears to be hard.

In reality, what's fair is being honest with yourself at all times. What you don't allow for yourself, you may deny for others as well.

What you allow for yourself, you must certainly allow for others.

That is the essence of fairness and it is actually easier to attain when you live in Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF

Why does history repeat itself? Because some don’t learn from it? Because some don’t care to learn from it? Or because some make sure that others don’t learn from it so they can manipulate it to their favor? Perhaps a combination of all three questions?

Whatever it may be, an ongoing study of history allows us to understand the behaviors and motives of those who have lived before us and the results they have manifested. It reveals just how living from the ego or the spirit unfolds in our world.

The best way for ego-minded agenda manifestors is for them to use their charisma to put a spin on history based on partial truths. They control, dominate and manipulate people by employing alternative ‘possibilities’ as ‘how’ it is without the truthful historical scaffolding to support their positions.

It truly is ‘all about them’! It has NOTHING to do with the Spirit of God and community and everything to do with lining their pockets. God has created you with a mind to learn and a heart to feel. USE THEM!!!

Go to the library, research online and read about the similar situations our forebears encountered and come to know that history only repeats itself when its lessons are disguised in rhetoric that is ‘believed’ by those who judge more than discern, who react more than proact and who believe more than know. Be ye therefore learning! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CURIOSITY

Curiosity is the stepping stone to learning from life and forging your beliefs. Beliefs are the stepping stones to knowing your role in the grand scheme of things.

Knowing is the doorway to allowing wisdom to guide you. Wisdom is in letting go of everything you know and believe in favor of that which truly IS.

The path to wisdom lies from your mind to your heart; to the hearts and minds of others and finally to complete Divine trust.

We all share the infinite Spirit of God and until we live from it, we will depend on our limited egotistical viewpoints to traverse the path and resist that which edifies all of us.

Allowing yourself to let go is the greatest strength of character you will ever express. Be ye therefore yielding to that which doesn’t serve Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN
TO BE TOO SENSITIVE?

Sensitive means that you are endowed with sensation (having perception through the senses). It means to readily or excessively be affected by external agencies or influences and having acute mental or emotional sensibility; being aware of and responsive to the feelings of others. It also means to be easily pained or annoyed [dictionary.com].

Basically it is pertaining to or connected with the senses or sensation of your environment; as well as your REACTIONS to events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of others in your environment. If you are too sensitive, you react immediately to what you observe, perceive and believe is happening to you.

It you are not sensitive enough, you are oblivious to the feelings and reactions by others to your expressions. Either extreme is preoccupation with your ego. If you are too sensitive, you feel and demand that others respect you no matter what. If you are not sensitive to others, you are self-absorbed and really don’t care about the experiences of others.

It is when you balance your ego with the Spirit of God that you come to understand that either extreme is not beneficial to yours and others growth and expansion. Let the comments and criticisms of others roll off your back like water off of a duck’s back while paying attention to the feelings of others. It is in everyone’s best interests to balance your sensitivity with Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO RHYME OR REASON?

The idiom of ‘no rhyme or reason’ simply means that the object you are referring to makes no sense, has no logical plan or is non-sequitur. A rhyme is a correspondence in something that denotes similarities and implies connection by one or more of its aspects. Reason is a basis or cause for some belief, action, fact or event. It is also a statement presented in justification or explanation of a belief or action. Also, it is associated with the mental powers concerned with forming conclusions, judgments or inferences [dictionary.com].

Rhyme and reason are basically synonymous with each other; referring to a sound and harmonious conclusion that is obvious to everyone. Having ‘no rhyme or reason’ for an event, occurrence, situation, circumstance, an object or someone else’s behavior might appear to you that it doesn’t make any sense; however, in the grand scheme of things, Divine order unfolds unbeknownst to you because of your predominant self-centered attention. The omniverse expresses chaos becoming order and reverting to chaos only to once again become order; rhyme and reason. Things that don’t make sense to you now might make sense at sometime in the future when you develop 20/20 Hindsight.

Most of us find it easy to understand ‘what’ has happened to us over time and a greater difficulty in understanding ‘why’ it is has happened to us. We can never know the entire holographic picture of the omniverse, but we can come to understand our part in our segment of it. Why? Because we contain the whole of creation from the Spirit of God within and express our understanding of it in our own individual consciousness and in our surrounding communities.

We do this by the thoughts we think, the feelings we feel, the beliefs we accept as true, the words we speak, the actions we take and the behaviors we express. Wisdom comes from elevating Divine trust over observed knowledge. The rhyme and reason is always present within; we just have to allow ourselves to follow Divine guidance in unfolding our Divine desires more than succumbing to our ego’s selfish yearnings. Be ye therefore harmonious! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE

When self-righteousness becomes elevated over mutual co-existence, selfishness reigns and decides that personal ‘knowledge’ is more important than shared ‘knowledge’.

Avoid the snare of the ego’s methods of control, domination and manipulation by allowing the guidance from the Spirit of God to take precedence in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SOWING SEEDS
OF HAPPINESS

Are you a sower of seeds of happiness or a nay-sayer of growth and expansion? Do you look for opportunities to inject understanding, support and encouragement to others or do you say nothing and let them fall flat on their faces? Do you only care for your happiness or do you truly understand just what Divine love is and that for you to truly experience it that you MUST share it?

Sowing the seeds of happiness empowers others to be whom and what they were created to be and allows you to be fulfilled that way as well! Hoarding your belief in personal happiness is in effect, cutting yourself off from being whom and what you truly are; the Divine in action! Plant seeds of joy and reap the harvest of Divine love everlasting by giving away that which you desire the most.

It is in the act of sharing that we align ourselves with the blessings of Divine love in Divine order. All else is moving contrary to the current of life and will slow down the joy you seek from existing in your life. Be ye therefore sharing Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FAITH OVER FEAR

Choosing enlightenment means that you choose faith over fear, love over power and peace over derision. David Icke is brilliant in his explanations; but as long as they are based on beliefs and not 'knowing', his picture of reality is skewed by his ego. Thinking for oneself is good; however, feeling for oneself should never be what someone programs you to feel. It should be based on a shared reality and not a contrived one that fits someone else’s agenda manifestation.

One can help open another’s mind but always be careful of what they are trying to put in there. The problem I have with him is that he truly believes all that he surmises. He doesn't leave room for employing a true ''knowingness' from a spiritual center that centers his followers. Most of those who I know that follow him are angry, resistive and challenging.

That's OK if it comes from the truth based on facts and not an agenda based on opinions. I respect him for having the cajones to speak what he 'believes' is the truth; the funny thing is that he is probably right but leaves his followers living in fear of what he has uncovered. Uncovering the truth is always good when we collectively use positive proaction to 'effect' change.  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE CORPORATE MEDIA

I do not swallow hook, line and sinker what the corporate media says. I check out several news outlets and research the stories that NEVER appear on the US Corporate news.

Yes, selling advertising feeds the beast, however, sensationalism on topics that distract the public from what their governments and corporate puppet masters are doing need to be weeded out from the important stories.

True discernment requires the legwork of extensive research and not allowing what you 'feel' is right to be the truth without the proper validation.

Gain a 360 degree perspective before you spout off your 'opinion'. It will prevent the incurable Latin disease Pedamus Orifice! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LISTENING TO THE
WRONG VOICE

If I believe that I am anything less than a perfect Divine creation I am choosing to listen to my limited ego; which yearns to convince me that only my perceptions are correct and that my survival is paramount.

When I choose to know that I am a perfect Divine creation I am allowing my inner flow of well-being to manifest beauty in my life.

Anything less than this perfection of spirit is a choice to move away from well-being and not toward it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR GPS

Next time you feel like lashing out and reacting to the negativity of some moron with a selfish agenda, turn on your GPS.

Your God Proacting System is designed to take the limited vision of those who live under the veil of their egos and create a clear viewpoint of true reality where you act appropriately in Divine order.

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

YOUR STREAM OF
WELL-BEING

Your stream of well-being flows constantly through your being with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. It creates inner peace, Divine understanding, incredible joy and a life replete with Divine love.

If you are not experiencing all of the above you are somehow interrupting this natural flow with your choices and decisions to control, dominate and manipulate reality based on your limited observations, personal perceptions and erroneous beliefs.

When you believe that you are separate from that which keeps you living in unity, it is you who has cut yourself off from Divine abundance.

Allow what is naturally flowing through you to bless your life with Divine love everlasting and live where you were created to live; not where you believe you are living now.

The more you separate yourself from your natural state of well-being, the more you are resisting that which is naturally yours. Be ye therefore natural! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOU WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG

Are you relieved when someone tells you that you were right all along? Do you feel vindicated and justified in believing what you did? Or do you realize that you were blessed with a foreknowledge that came because you were open to receiving it?

We all have beliefs that we hold onto in the face of monumental opposition because down deep inside we ‘know’ they are true. If we have this knowingness then we must be willing to validate these beliefs and examine them completely under a microscope.

Challenging our assumed truths with the thresher of validation separates the chaff from the wheat and leaves the true substance and core of nutritional reality.

Always choose the parsimonious path to knowledge by removing assumptions, beliefs and foregone conclusions from your path to learning the truth and the validation of it. Be ye therefore focused! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESISTANCE

What you resist persists. Allow what stimulates your ire to pass through you and you will not emotionally react to it like you do with resistance.

Resistance creates emotional attachment where allowance lets it pass through you without emotional attachment.

Moving from resisting to fighting is easy; moving from accepting to allowing appears to be more difficult because of an innate sense to fight that which appears to be hurting you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

UNWORTHY?

It is not that we feel that others are unworthy of being whom and what they were created to be; it is that they feel that way about themselves that is the core issue.

Belief in yourself moves you towards fulfillment but it is ‘knowing’ yourself that actually allows you to become whom and what you were created to be.

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

SELFISH PURPOSES

The Salem Witch Trials: March 1, 1692. Proof that when religion is used as an excuse over life and death that those who wield that power will exercise it for their own selfish purposes. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TIRED

I am tired. I have lived a great life and I am blessed every day with Divine love. I come here and share to be of service to all of you. I come because I am reaching out to like-minded souls who know exactly what Divine love is. In this virtual world we type our experiences and who we feel we are. Day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year. When I come here I know that I am blessed and that I will be blessed by learning from all of you.

You have blessed my life with the greatest gift; friendship. I am blessed to know all of you. I have so much I want to do before I fertilize flower beds. I know I have many years left if I maintain my health. I just want all of you to know just how much you have blessed my life. Every day I hear your joy, your sorrows and your experiences I feel that you are sharing your life with me. This Divine love that we share can heal any illness; it can repair any relationship; and it can manifest any blessing you divinely desire.

The one thing I know is that the Divine is there; the Divine loves us; the Divine has given us everything we need to co-create beauty in our lives and the lives of others. We are all blessed to know and interact with each other. We are living in Divine love and that’s why we come here every day. It’s the most positive addiction we know. You guys are the best; and as a result, I am totally blessed. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CONFUCIUS

Confucius is Latin for "Kung-Fu-tzu" meaning Master Kong, who knew that the invisible thread that connects everything is there because he felt its presence.

Feeling the thread connects you to the flow of Infinite Abundance and spiritual well-being. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

RESIST?

What is it about fighting and resisting something that you don’t understand? Why is it that the immediate response to perceived pain and suffering is to resist it? We ‘fight’ cancer; we ‘resist’ evil and we ‘avoid’ confrontation. Is it because we have learned to automatically react with fear? If so, why can’t we reprogram ourselves to proact with faith and complete trust in the Divine?

The truth is that we can. The only way you can positively proact is for you to understand Divine love and live from inner peace. Peace brings understanding; understanding brings joy; joy brings Divine love; Divine love brings peace. It is an ongoing cycle of fulfillment that minimizes doubt, worry and fear.

It puts your ego in check and moves you from just surviving to completely thriving. Allow whatever you feel you must resist to ‘pass through’ you without attaching any negative feelings and emotions to it.

That is how you maintain spiritual dominance in your life. You are greater than your reactions; act like it! Be ye therefore allowing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BLESSED ARE

Blessed be the life givers, for they shall be given life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Blessed are the lovers of peace, for they will be guided to inner peace amid the din and chaos of the perceptions and beliefs that veil the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Blessed are they who save life, nurture it and help it to grow and expand; for they shall be guided by their inner hearts to know Divine joy. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ALWAYS HURT

To all of those who say the expectations always hurt are correct. They do hurt.

They hurt the ones who don't expect the best because they will always have their wishes fulfilled! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

JUST AS YOU ARE

Never forget that you are loved just as you are. It is you who separate yourself from your natural state of well-being by your erroneous beliefs.

You were created by Divine love and you ARE Divine love everlasting. Remember who you truly are and forget about what you believe you are.

By knowing who you are you allow Divine love to move through you and affect your world. Be ye therefore moving! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NO MATTER WHAT

Love no matter what. Be firm. Be strong. Be expectant. Be yourself and never let anyone steal your peace.

Live your innermost desires despite if it appears they will never happen. Be bold. Be daring. Be true.

Everything you have ever wanted to be, do or have is already there within you. Get out of your own way and experience it.

It is your choice and your choice alone. Be ye therefore loving; no matter what! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EXPECTATION

Why is everyone always saying to avoid having expectations? Why do so many people go on and on about NEVER being expectant of anything? We are created in the image and likeness of the Divine and have the power of Divine love to co-create in this vast omniverse. Did the Divine say, “Let there be light” and not EXPECT it to be?

The result of creation came from the expectation of it being created and manifested; not from not having expectations and not seeing it being created! When you expect something to happen as a result of allowing your well-being to align with your beliefs, you are putting your faith and trust in the Divine to grow and expand the seeds of desire that were planted in your heart.

Expectation is faith in action. If you believe that by having no expectations that you will have no disappointments, then you are correct! However, believing this is fear based because you are not willing to live with disappointments so you make a blanket statement that is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Disappointments are a part of the learning process that hones down your vision of your desires and the adjustments you need to make in order to fulfill those desires.

When you expect something to happen, you are being bold, declarative and stepping out of your comfort zone. It is not about ‘how’ it will happen; it is about the fact that it ‘will’ happen when you choose to experience the satisfaction of living in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting! No expectations, no satisfaction! If you don't expect to fulfill your dreams, then why would you ever have them? Did God just create you as a whim for you to aimlessly wander creation with hopes and dreams that would NEVER be fulfilled? Or did the Creator give you the tools of co-creation by expecting them to be manifested?

Give your dreams over to the Divine and expect them to be manifested; that is what trusting in the Divine means. It is having faith and putting it in action. It is throwing your hat into the ring of life and trusting God to handle ‘how’ it becomes manifested. If you don’t expect the Divine to manifest your dreams, then you are living in fear and won’t admit it. Be ye therefore expectant! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LIVING FOR PLEASURE

Too many live from the medial forebrain bundle (the pleasure center in the brain). From the hedonist to the ascetic is the tunnel of life for those who live in chaos without the order that comes from meditation.

Life is more than just pain or pleasure. It is living in Divine love and being thankful for it. Growth and expansion only come from discovering, declaring and utilizing the power of Divine love to affect bringing chaos into order within the mind.

Living in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love open the ‘tunnel’ from the heart to the mind and co-create beauty in your life. When life becomes ‘all about everyone’ and not just ‘all about you’ is when your heart-mind channel becomes clear of all distractions; and allows the flow of well-being to create health, wealth, prosperity and abundance in your experience.

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

FAITH IN ACTION

Expectation is faith in action. Faith is allowing your Divine desires to be handled by Divine will. Expecting the best to happen is trusting that the Divine will make it happen in Divine order. Disappointment only comes when we 'feel' that it should have happened the way we thought it should have happened.

'Thy will be done' is ‘trusting’ in God and expecting it to happen according to Divine will in Divine order. The argument is always surrounding 'what' you expect and not 'how' you expect manifestation to happen. These are two distinctly different things and should be handled accordingly.

Faith involves the expectation of what happens because of the seeds of Divine desire in your heart. Trust involves the allowance of ‘how’ it will happen because of Divine will moving Divine order.

From the Divine perspective, all is manifesting at the correct place, the correct time and with the correct set of circumstances. Meditation gives us a taste of Divine perspective and subsequent peace that comes from understanding that ‘all is well’ no matter how we ‘feel’ about what we desire.

Put your faith in action by expecting to be that which you were created to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR COCOON

It's comfortable for many to live in mediocrity. Stepping out of their cocoon is daring and reveals the inner beauty to the outside world.

Too many live in fear of being seen for just who they 'believe' they are instead of living in faith of being seen for who the Divine knows they are.

Healing only comes when you let go of what you believe in favor of what the Divine knows. You are a child of the Most High and your greatest enemy is your own doubts, worries and fears that you are other than a child of God.

Stop being fooled by what you believe and start being blessed by what you know! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

GUILT OF BEING SELFISH

When you care more about protecting yourself and your own interests over the protection of others and their interests, you will reap what you sow in the guilt of being selfish. Being selfish can be both positive and negative.

If you choose what you want over others without regard as to how it will affect them, you are being negative in the sense that you are not sharing Divine love in their best interests.

If you choose what others want over what you want without regard as to how it will affect you, you are being negative in the sense that you are not living in Divine love by respecting yourself and your best interests.

If you choose to be positively selfish, you make the time each and every day to go within in Divine communion and allow your inner well-being to flow through you unfettered by your ‘beliefs’, distractions and the apparent circumstances of your life.

The positive selfishness affects others and your world with a ‘change’ within you. You live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love as a result. In essence, you are protecting others AND yourself by consistently dipping into the well of Divine love. Be ye therefore positively selfish! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SUPERSTITION?

"The perceived distinction and separation of mind and body is a modern day superstition. I wonder what you think?" ~Marcus Robinson.

Anything that is perceived by the brain is ultimately an illusion; albeit a convincing one. Our senses have limited ranges that observe energy and matter. Our bodies ‘feel’ unseen energies and matter as well. From observation to perception to belief we convince ourselves of our shared reality. We are spirit expressing energy from light (less dense energy) to physical objects (more dense energy). On the continuum of existence we appear to live in the perceived dualistic reality (PDR) because we ‘believe’ what our senses reveal.

When we go within and immerse ourselves in our Divine well-being of spirit, we come to know that there is no distinction and separation from our minds and bodies. Superstition is a belief or notion NOT based on reason or knowledge. In this sense, believing that the body can exist without the mind or the mind exist without a body ‘separately’, is ludicrous. Science has clearly demonstrated that consciousness is a result of the brain generating electricity and that when it no longer does so, the body ‘dies’. Even those who remain alive in comas still possess consciousness, even though they cannot communicate.

However, when the body dies it appears that so does the consciousness. However, energy cannot be created or destroyed; it simply changes form. What makes us unique individuals is the Spirit of God within our bodies that comprise a living ‘soul’. When the body dies the consciousness of spirit simply changes form and either reintegrates into another body, or continues to exist in the omniverse as ‘consciousness energy’; the body then decomposes into its basic components and becomes part of the planetary composite of denser energy (matter).

As Carl Sagan once said, “We are star stuff.” We are more than just ‘star stuff’. We are the omniverse creating consciousness to look back at itself in wonder. We are the observers, the perceivers and the believers in what we experience. In reality, we are all one in spirit and many in the individualized expressions of spirit. Knowing your divinity within creates the awareness that everything is connected and nothing is truly separated. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE POWER OF DIVINE LOVE

You were born in, by and with the power of Divine love. To deny that is like Peter denying Christ.

Yet so many justify it to appear humble to others because they were taught by manipulators that is how it is.

Living in Divine love means letting go of ALL your beliefs, having faith in action and trusting completely in God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

EMBRACING DIVINE LOVE

There is nothing like looking at beautiful flowers in bloom towards the end of winter. It stimulates the soul, comforts your heart and gives you something to look forward to while you are feeling the bone chilling cold. It’s much the same as moving from a cold, selfish and self-centered heart to one that embraces Divine love.

The growth and expansion of love within your heart cannot be contained by the selfishness of your ego. It will push its way through the ego like a flower pushes its way through the earth to the light of the Sun. It is then the true beauty of whom and what you are blossoms in Divine perfection.

You become your wishes fulfilled and you are now an example to everyone that Divine love is your center, and their’s as well. You are blessed just as the flowers kiss the light of the Sun. Be ye therefore warm in the cold; light in the dark; and love amid disharmony, desolation and dysfunctionality. Shine forth your light! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

CHANGING YOUR VIEWPOINT

You cannot change what has happened yesterday, but you CAN change how you look at what happened yesterday! It‘s all in how you frame the past that results in how it affects you.

If you see the results of past actions as detrimental to you growth and expansion you will keep re-creating that result.

However, if you see the results of the past as stepping stones to a greater understanding of what NOT to do, you will learn to not re-create it and choose to forge a path that is beneficial to your growth and expansion into being whom and what you were created to be.

Be ye therefore a reframer! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A STRUGGLE?

Being successful in life is only a struggle if you perceive it to be! Struggle implies overcoming obstacles and being inconvenienced by them. They always reveal what you perceive to be your ‘limitations’.  If you believe in your limitations you will always experience them because your beliefs co-create your reality.

Instead of believing in struggle, having to overcome and being inconvenienced, learn to know that everything you perceive as being obstacles are there for you to allow them to pass through you without attaching any emotions to them.

They are there to teach you to follow your heart and not what your ego, others and perceived circumstance lead you to reason and conclude. Life is NOT meant to be a struggle. It is NOT meant to be an ongoing fight. It is not meant for you to feel ‘inconvenienced.

It IS meant for you to learn, grow, expand and share Divine love! Doing anything other than that is completely fooling yourself with the distractions of the outer world and the yearnings of your ego.

Be ye therefore successful by allowing that which you are to manifest in your life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

IS HUMAN NATURE NEGATIVE?

I choose not to believe that human nature is just negative. We all have choices as to what we 'feel' we need to do in any given situation. The choices we make come from what we have been taught, what we feel we are experiencing and what we believe is happening to us.

I know that our natural state is one of well-being and abundance. Negative choices are made from a viewpoint of pain, lack and limitation. Positive choices are made from a viewpoint of joy, understanding and abundance.

Human nature moves from one extreme to the other by our perceptions, feelings and beliefs; not from knowing that we are One with the health, wealth, prosperity and abundance of the Divine.

When we know that our true human nature is one of well-being, we express peace, understanding, joy and Divine love into our lives. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A CHOICE

To feel an emotion to the point of making it a belief is a choice. It is accepting it as true despite the 'possibility' of it NOT being true.

It doesn't mean that we are contributing to undermining all that is good in our lives; it means that we have made choices based on erroneous beliefs that we have accepted as true without effectively testing their validity.

We all do this in the normal course of living in the external world. This is why meditation is so important to our ongoing health and well-being. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FEELING GOOD IS SUBJECTIVE

Feeling good is subjective based on the sanity of the person experiencing the feeling. If their feelings of 'good' are predicated by actions that have helped others or themselves in interdependency with others, then they are truly 'good'.

If their feelings of 'good' are predicated by actions that have hurt others or themselves, then their sanity is in question. When the mindset/heartset is aberrant and not consistent with 'sane' emotion, the truth of what a person is feeling is skewed by their feelings of anger and separation.

Generally, feeling good in a ‘sane’ person is an indicator of doing something positive for yourself and/or others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BELIEF AND SELF-DISCIPLINE

Recent scientific theorists have forged a link between religious belief and self-discipline. It seems readily apparent that making choices based on convicted ideals drives human behavior to better itself. People who become convicted to their ideals and beliefs have clearly demonstrated time and again an alignment with their principles based on their belief in a Higher Power.

Those people who don’t have these beliefs and the discipline to carry out these beliefs (according to the research), discharge self-discipline more easily than those with beliefs in a Higher Power. Why is this happening? Is it because a person’s determination to believe in bettering themselves in alignment with the principles of a Higher Power is somehow more superior to those who don’t? Or is it simply because they have chosen to spiritually, mentally and emotionally focus on ‘bettering’ their physical interactions with others?

Whatever it may be, the results of these social experiments repeat similar conclusions; not only in us, but in animals attributed with social intelligence as well (elephants and dolphins). Now, how is this relevant to us? We are contained in a social system that has certain laws and principles of interaction. If we stray from respecting others in alignment with these laws and principles, there are consequences for our actions.

These consequences are established by our legal representatives in government; determined ‘violated’ by law enforcement and the enforcement of the consequences are carried out by the courts. In our ‘contained’ system, we use external ‘ideals’ to strive toward bettering ourselves, In other words, we surpass our inherent ‘discomfort’ with ideals outside of our comfort zone in a quest to be more socially acceptable.

This is apparent the liar paradox and Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorums. “The liar paradox is the sentence "This sentence is false." An analysis of the liar sentence shows that it cannot be true (for then, as it asserts, it is false), nor can it be false (for then, it is true). A Gödel sentence ‘G for a theory T’ makes a similar assertion to the liar sentence, but with truth replaced by provability: G says "G is not provable in the theory T." The analysis of the truth and provability of G is a formalized version of the analysis of the truth of the liar sentence [Wikipedia.com].” For this argument, we will insert God. “The belief in the existence of God is false.” An analysis of the God sentence shows that it cannot be true (for then, as it asserts, it is false), nor can it be false (for then, it is true). According to a Gödel sentence ‘G for a theory T’ makes a similar assertion to the liar sentence, but with truth replaced by provability: G says "God is not provable in the theory of an individual’s belief." The analysis of the truth and provability of God is a formalized version of the analysis of the truth of the liar sentence.

Now what does this mean? It simply refers to the fact when you try to use logic and reason to ‘prove’ the belief in the existence of God you wind up in a verbal and logical paradox. Each expression of your belief in God becomes subjective to your individual experience, which is collectively improvable. When you align your individual experiences of the divinity with others, it becomes a social ‘binding together’ of beliefs and the consequences of those beliefs. Soon after, dogma is born from self-righteous behaviors that arise from your own self-discipline in your ‘shared’ beliefs with others. Belief in a Higher Power elevates your individuality to a sense of your Divine purpose. It brings goal setting, more socially acceptable behaviors and the ability to live in the unfolding of Divine order.

Living in the spiritual realm is beyond any mental construct of logic and reason. It is stepping out of the limitation of your limited senses that observe the external reality, mentally perceives its truthfulness and subsequently emotionally validates its ‘beliefs’. Ultimately, it creates an open channel between spiritual understanding and physical experience. It bypasses judgment with discernment, doubt with certainty, worry with knowingness and faith with fear. You become the embodiment of your Divine purpose expressing itself in Divine order. Don’t get caught up in the mental and emotional social games of interdependency vs. independency. Integrate your spirituality effectively in your life by allowing Divine love (your inner well-being) to move through you and co-create external beauty in your life. Be ye therefore non-paradoxical. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
