SIMPLE MACHINES

Early in our mutual existence, humankind used hands and feet as simple tools. What is a simple tool? As simple tool is “a ‘simple machine’; which is a non-motorized device that changes the direction or magnitude of a force. In general, a simple machine can be defined as one of the simplest mechanisms that provide mechanical advantage; a.k.a. leverage [Wikipedia.com].”

When the forces opposing the hands and feet were greater than our limb extensions could handle, we invented simple machines to extend the force of our limb extensions. “Six classical simple machines which were defined by Renaissance scientists: Lever, Wheel and axle, Pulley, Inclined plane, Wedge, and Screw [Wikipedia.com].”

These tools increase the physical force applied to objects from our hands and feet allowing us to move objects that we couldn’t move on our own. We have used these tools to take advantage of the force of ‘leverage’. What is leverage? It means several different things:

It is “the mechanical advantage or power gained by using a lever; power or ability to act or to influence people, events, decisions by advantage, strength, weight, clout or pull; the use of a small initial investment, credit, or borrowed funds to gain a very high return in relation to one's investment, to control a much larger investment, or to reduce one's own liability for any loss; to use (a quality or advantage) to obtain a desired effect or result;  to provide with leverage over something else; to invest or arrange using leverage; to exert power or influence on something outside of oneself [dictionary.com].”

As you can see, leverage can mean a host of possibilities all in relation to using something small to move something else that ‘appears’ to be larger or unmovable. Do we have an internal simple tool or machine that can move omniversal forces that appear to be ‘unmovable’? It turns out that we do. We have the ability to ‘visualize’ an end result that fulfills our desires and brings us joy. By feeling that joy we are using Divine love to bring peace and understanding.

The larger energies and matter of the cosmos are determined by the ‘lesser’ or ‘darker’ energies and matter that exist ‘beyond’ our senses. As with an electronic relay, a smaller electrical force moves a ‘switch’ that affects a larger electrical force by using opposing forces that ‘naturally’ exist. Divine order affects natural order when we know we are pursuing that for which we were created to fulfill. It moves the natural ‘darker’ or ‘lesser’ forces to affect the larger and more apparent forces that we perceive in our minds.

The secret to utilizing our built in ‘omniversal relay’ is to keep the channel of fulfillment open between our hearts and minds. Divine love flows from our hearts to affect our minds to co-create the beauty that we seek. When we meditate daily we keep that channel open to live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. It ‘affects’ that inner simple tool to leverage the forces of nature to create that which we desire.

It does this when we EXPECT the fulfillment of what we visualize by feeling the joy of its creation. It’s not about believing it will happen; it’s about knowing that it will because you are fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order. Prayer energizes the relay; meditation allows the energy to flow through the relay; and service to others by sharing your talents, skills and abilities flips the relay to bring about the Divine desires implanted in your heart.

Too simple? Perhaps. However, it’s simpler than you think and more complex than you feel. Focus on the end result of your desires and expect their fulfillment in Divine order. Watch the simple omniversal machine create that which you KNOW you were created to fulfill. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. Their relays are clouded with doubt, worry and fear fueled by their ego’s desire to protect what they ‘believe’ is real more than what they ‘know’ is real. Be ye therefore simply complex! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A CHASM OF DOUBT

Anytime we violate what someone else believes they create a chasm of doubt, worry and fear that they feel they need to defend because their entire existence is predicated on their beliefs more than Divine knowledge.

Beliefs are the rigid armor of mediocrity and when we dent that armor, self-survival becomes more important than truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE UNDERLYING TRUTH

The underlying truth is more than you sense, perceive and believe. If you base your life only on your senses, your perceptions and your beliefs you are limiting that which you are by that which you experience.

Be that which you are and in turn what you experience will be a reflection of that which you are and not that which you believe.

Knowing comes when beliefs are let go in favor of experiencing Divine love. Be ye therefore living in Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SPIRITUAL REVELATION

Sharing the aberrances and deceptions of others is not your ego lashing out at them. It is the spirit revealing just what is aberrant and what is deceptive.

Those who accuse those who share these aberrances and deceptions are operating more from ego than from the spirit because in their accusations lie the motivations of the ego to suppress the Spirit of God within each and every one of us.

Don’t listen to others’ egos more than the Spirit of God within you. If you do, then you are succumbing to the aberrances and deceptions of their egos controlling, dominating and manipulating what you believe in order serve themselves and their yearnings for power over you.

Be ye therefore focused on the revelation of the Spirit of God within you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSTRUCT

Ego is a psychological construct of chemical reactions that create thoughts dedicated to protecting oneself at all costs; in other words, self-survival. It is not a physical object; it is a resultant process of thought manipulation and repetition that creates beliefs that get embedded in one’s subconscious mind.

It resides in the reptilian brain and reacts to perceptions and beliefs that one is being threatened with physical or psychological harm. When it is exposed for what it is it will defend its existence at all costs even though it is a ‘by-product’ of consciousness and not the origination of it.

It lives to be aberrant and deceive; in order to remain in command. It will do anything, even hurt itself or others to convince itself and others that its existence is the most valid thing to benefit all. It has its place; to protect you from harm.

However, when it becomes the only thing you ever listen to, it deprives you from being what you were created to be. Why? Because it lives in mediocrity seeking safety and security in an environment that is so unpredictable that it must lie to itself to be validated.

Listen to the Spirit of God within and be what you were created to be by allowing Divine love to be expressed in Divine order. Be ye therefore full of love and NOT ego! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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

WHAT IS THE
DAY OF JUDGMENT?

Is it a day in the future or is it a metaphor for you when you become aware of your divinity? According the Judeo-Christian and Muslim traditions the Day of Judgment means “the day at the end of the world when God judges the moral worth of individual humans or the whole human race.” It is a day of reckoning or final judgment. Accordingly, Solomon states the following: “Wealth is not useful in the day of wrath but righteousness saves from death” ~Solomon, Proverbs 11:4 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). So, all of those that have accumulated wealth will find it of no use in the final Day of Judgment (wrath). However, being righteous will save you from death.

Are you behaving in a righteous manner in your life? Are your words truthful or full of lies? Will you be held responsible for the words that you have or have not spoken? “For I say to you that every idle word that people will speak, they will give an answer for it in the Day of Judgment” ~Yeshua, Matthew 12:36 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English). Yeshua states that we will have to answer for ‘the idle words’ we have ever spoken in the final day. As for our faith, is it static or dynamic? Does it evolve into complete trust in the Divine? Or does it change based on the good works we sow? “The work of every person is revealed, for that day reveals it, because the work of every person is revealed by fire, what sort it is; the fire will test it” ~Paul, 1st Corinthians 3:13 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

In other words, the Spirit of God (the fire) will test the results of your faith and good works. Why? For you to validate the truth of the spirit within in the experiences in your life! Is the Day of Judgment the day that where every man woman and child will be judged for their actions and thoughts while on this planet? It has been debated among religious scholars as to whether or not this is an ongoing process or if it is reserved for the time of the Revelation when they believe Yeshua returns. Is the Day of Judgment the day of the Last Judgment when God will decree the fates of all men according to the good and evil of their earthly lives? Is it a day of reckoning? Or is it simply an ongoing process where each and every one of us purges the control, domination and manipulation of our egos by embracing the ‘fire’ of the Spirit of God?

Every time you choose to allow Divine love to move through you without judging others is the ‘test’ of fire that you have passed. It is not only using Divine faith and trust to guide your life it is performing good works from that experience of Divine love. In essence, it is the daily practice of prayer, meditation, service and fulfillment. The Day of Judgment is NOT some day off in the future. It is today. It is everyday that you choose to live in Divine love and share it with others. Be ye therefore full of Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LEVELS OF SELF

Eschatology is a load of B.S. invented by religion to keep their constituents in line and fill up the church coffers!

Trust in God only by discerning the words and intentions of humankind. Truth is not truth until it is continually validated as such.

Be ye therefore attentive and discerning to the words of others and their intentions behind them. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A LOVER OF LIFE

My meager attempt at honoring Dr. Maya Angelou. A poet and lover of life:

Where have I come from?
Where have I been?
Is it the way I look at things
Now and then?
The focus I have
Is on the spirit within
For in the moment
I strive to begin
Moving forward
I desire to serve
And from all angles
From attacks I swerve
For in the moment
You decide to live the truth
You have to learn to deal with the ramblings of the uncouth
People who live from their ego and belief
I go within to seek relief
When I enter the presence
I am bathed with Divine love
I soak it all in
From below to above
The peace that I feel
Gives me understanding and joy
The Divine love I live
Is not a ploy
To lead others astray
On their path to unity
It is to help others out
And serve their community
Love is not love
Unless it is shared
And life is not lived
Until it is declared
To be a gift from the Divine
An extension of SELF
To live in truth, beauty and love
Is to care for oneself
And so I say to all of you
On your pathway unfolding perfection
Listen to the still small voice of God
Always giving you direction!
~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

AN ANGEL WALKED
AMONG US

An angel walked among us
With a flair for words
She touched all of our hearts
We flew like the birds
She gave us a gift
Of clarity and peace
And now she has left us
Her thoughts will never cease
To inspire generations
With the kiss from the Divine
The gentleness of spirit
Always giving us the rhyme
To move forward in unity
Towards the commonest of goals
Of living in peace, love and harmony
As her poems foretold
And now dearest Maya
You’ve returned to your home
Where angels sing in poetry
And listeners never roam
The gift of your words
Will ring in our hearts forever
To give us all hope
In everything we endeavor.

Thank you dearest Maya for the gifts you have given us all. We will miss you and always remember you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ODE TO MAYA

Words of wonder
Graced our lives
Fear asunder
We realized
Hope is present
When we embrace our humanhood
Evil is diffused
Leaving only our good
What she taught us
Was how to grow
To love who we are
And to truly know
Her words will always linger
In the center of our hearts
To remove our finger
From the trigger that tarts
In her heart was no fear
Just resolve
In her mind was the truth
In which we were involved
She knew that somehow
One day we would expand and grow
That’s why she kept going
Shining her heavenly glow
We must always remember
How her words made us think
How they opened our feelings
To quench our thirst we must drink
From the Divine nectar
That flows from the center of our hearts
That the sum of each other
Is always greater than our parts.
~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

 

 

STATE OF MIND

Amid the aberrant acts of our politicians who censure and blame one another for lying and misrepresenting the facts in favor of their ‘opinions’, it all goes to their state of mind. Do they know they are lying? Do they care? Or are they so convicted to their opinions that they convince themselves and others making their opinions established beliefs?

The Latin says, "actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea." Or, "the act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty." Yeah, right. The basis of corruption and collusion is the justification that what you are doing comes from what you believe is right for you and your constituents.

When your beliefs are so strong that they are more important to you than the facts, it is your ego that is command; the same ego that doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone else but yourself. Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric of lawyers and politicians.

It is nothing more than ‘sleight of hand’ to distract you from the facts and to make their ‘spin’ on the facts more plausible to their constituents. Censure any and all lawyers, judges, bureaucrats and politicians that ‘claim’ that they are operating on the facts. If they cannot back it up with the truth, they are all ‘talking shit’! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BLAMING

Arguing escalates to violence only by willing participants. Before you reach your frustration threshold learn to not to perseverate any negative feelings to the point where you lose control.

When your feelings take over the ego blinds you to your reactions to others, justifying using aberrant behavior in defense of self. Your beliefs and values are your inner sounding board.

Never let anyone push your emotional buttons to react with anger or violence. When you are too sensitive to being treated in an aberrant fashion, your reactive emotions will take the lead.

Allow others to be who they are but NOT to make you into who they are. Stand your ground and proact by sharing Divine love; whether directly or indirectly. Only you are responsible for your peace.

It is your job to maintain your inner peace, develop your understanding of others, live in joy with yourself and share Divine love with all. Be ye therefore supportive of peace for all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HARD CHOICES

The next time you hear a Republican harping, “Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!”, refer them to Hillary Clinton’s book entitled, “Hard Choices”. In it she states, “There’s a difference between unanswered questions and unlistened to answers.” How many times have you told people your reasons for doing things the way you do them and they simply ignore you because you didn’t give them the answers they wanted to hear?  How many of you have had to deal with self-absorbed drunks who practically NEVER listen to anything you say and when you refer back to it they INSIST you never said it? Are you tired of dealing with the egos of others who think that the world revolves around them and their selfish yearnings?

It is clear that Hillary Clinton is focusing on her opposition’s pre-conceived notions and agenda manifestation. If you decide that something that has occurred was based on how you ‘want’ to see it, then you will find the ‘evidence’ to back it up. Your self-fulfilling prophecies ‘recognize’ and ‘embrace’ that which allows your preconceptions to be fulfilled. It no longer matters ‘what’ the truth is; the only thing that matters is what fits into your little ‘box’ of thinking and feeling. When things don’t fit into that box, what do you do? Do you hide the evidence? Do you discharge it as not being valid without testing its validity? Or do you simply explain it away in order to keep your little ‘box’ secure?

Anytime you forego the sharing of the truth at all costs you have allowed the agenda manifestation of your ego to override the truth of the Spirit of God. Your selfishness has blocked the flow of Divine love and interfered with Divine truth. You have blocked the dam of your well-being and that of others as well. This creates internal emotions of doubt, worry and fear over the deception you have perpetrated on yourself and others. It puts you in a vicious cycle of emotional turmoil, dissension and limited self-expression. Why go down the road that leads to the demise of your soul? Why become that which you fear in others? Why choose to harbor false witness when the truth that’s in front of you can be tested for validity?

Listen to the answers that have already been stated. Evaluate their validity and determine the truth. Stop asking questions that have already been asked and answered. If you cannot bring something new to the table, then stop harping on that which has already been answered. It reveals that you have an egotistical agenda that you are seeking to manifest over exactly what the truth is. You are fooling yourself in order to manifest your selfish agenda. You are NOT a truth seeker! You are a controller, dominator and manipulator who only cares to fulfill your preconceptions of reality. Unfortunately, many of our leaders follow this lead. Remove those who follow this script from office. We need leaders who deal with the truth by testing its validity over and over again MORE than rehash and recycle the same questions that have already been answered. Be ye therefore a listener! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

ABERRANT BEHAVIORS

When any one of us has their rights stifled, passed over or diminished, all of us have suffered and it is up to us to correct this aberrant behavior.

When the rights of the one slips through the cracks, it diminishes the rights of the many. If basic human rights, dignities and social mores are stepped on, it is up to the many to correct the behaviors of those perpetrating the aberrances.

We are only ‘one’ when we ensure our mutual self-survival. We do this by knowing that we all have the Spirit of God within us and that we should act according to the spirit and NOT the selfishness of the ego. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SPIRITUALLY DEFICIT
EGOTISTICAL DISORDER

Are you suffering from SDED? What is SDED? It is Spiritually Deficit Egotistical Disorder. A condition where you deny your inner well-being and use whatever exists outside of yourself to serve your needs, wants, desires and expectations. It doesn’t matter whether it is objects or people; what matters is that everything must fulfill your ego’s yearnings for accomplishment, recognition and selfish gain.

Do you interact with others everyday and only think of what you have to say and do without any regard for what they say or do? Are you so self-centered that you believe everyone else exists to accommodate you? Do you make your moves in life predicated on how it will benefit you only?

If you have answered yes to these questions then you have SDED. How do your cure SDED? You make the time each and every day to pray for guidance, meditate to receive guidance and serve others by sharing Divine love that helps them to become fulfilled.

Taking that which is your inner well-being and sharing it in your outer world blesses all with peace, understanding joy and Divine love everlasting. Take the focus on ‘me’ and place more on ‘we’ and you’ll see that you’ll become what you were created to be!

Change SDED to a SHARE; Spiritually Heightened Awareness Responsive Experience! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WHAT GIVES?

DIVIDING

In order for religion to survive it must divide believers from non-believers and recruit non-believers in order to justify its own existence. Religions are institutions of rituals, traditions and dogma. They are farther from the Divine then they want you to believe. The more they remain the middle people between you and the Divine, the more you will support their existence. Why would you look outside for something that can only be found within? Why would you support institutions that divide us more than unite us? Why would be a part of something that does not contribute to our mutual growth and expansion in unity?

Spirituality is when you KNOW the existence of the Divine and you share Divine love with all of life. It means that you forego rituals for quiet communion with the Divine. It means that you abandon traditions that separate you from others and embrace those that do. It means that you let go of religious dogma in favor of Divine inspiration. Christ said quite clearly in Matthew 15:9, “And they revere me in vain while they teach the doctrines of the commandments of man“(Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

Do you revere the Christ within you? Or do you teach the doctrines of priests, murderers, slave owners, gay bashers and misogynists who designed the Bible? Do you believe what they have written down OVER what the Divine within is saying to you? Are you so blind to the truth that you do what others do just to ‘fit in’? If you do, then spend time praying, meditating and serving the Divine by sharing Divine love with all WITHOUT imposing your ‘beliefs’ on others. Show them how to KNOW God within more than look for God without.

Be a proponent of the truth more than the verbal and written descriptions of the truth. Be ye therefore spiritual and NOT religious! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEED NOT PARROT!

From the Internet to the Public Library we can all research the truth and learn from the facts.

We need not parrot what we see and hear on TV, Social Media or from our friends who heard it 'somewhere'.

Be a truth seeker by ferreting out the facts before 'believing' what you are told! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

WAIT ON THE LORD

Wait on the Lord. Be patient. All that has appeared to have gone awry has all occurred in Divine order.

Those who have lied will be revealed; those who have taken advantage of others will be taken advantage of; those who have been selfish will be denied their pleasure.

It will all unfold perfectly in Divine order. All you have to do is be patient. ~ Dean A. Banks, D.D.

TRUST

Trust in the Divine. That’s all you have to do. Everything else is a distraction. Trusting means you have a relationship of Divine love that you share with the Divine.

Reading books, taking classes, going to seminars and fellowshipping with like-minded individuals is fine and dandy. However, your one on one relationship with the Creator of the omniverse is the most important thing in your life.

Make it a priority. Be ye therefore trusting. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LANDMARK?

What is Landmark Training? Is it a brainwashing technique or a deprogramming of erroneous beliefs that have held you back from becoming the real you? I have had several friends rave about it so I did some research.

Go to the links; read the info; decide for yourself. Just remember; the more you pay for a course in ANYTHING, the more you will ‘feel’ you will get out of it. Why? Because you need to justify the expenditure in your mind. Once you are convinced of by your emotional attachment, you tell others how great it is to get them to re-justify your experience.

Remember, true spirituality NEVER taps your bank account. It fills you with Divine love everlasting and blesses your life with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Be ye therefore spiritual!

All of the Landmark training originated with Werner Erhard and EST. A used car salesman and part time Scientologist with an agenda. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEVER SOLD

True spirituality is never sold to anyone. It is embraced from within where the Divine teaches you who to trust and who not to trust; what to believe in and what not to believe in; where to go and where not to go; how to proceed and how not to proceed; when to act and when not to act; why to behave a certain way and why not to behave in other ways.

You don’t need books, courses, teachers, fellowship with believers or ongoing struggles to embrace Divine wisdom. You just need an open heart and an open mind to ALLOW the Divine to work through you with Divine love. Don’t take the circuitous route to Oneness with spirit. Trust in the Divine and go directly to Oneness by faithing your heart and mind with Divine love.

Your Divine purpose will unfold in Divine order when you trust the Divine completely. Nothing outside of you can teach you this; only what’s inside of you can move you to this realization and fulfillment of Divine love everlasting. Be ye therefore divine! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A QUICK FIX?

Are you looking for the quick fix? The magical cure? The easy answers to your perceived problems? Well then, look no further than your own heart. God has blessed you with an automatic and internal emotional guidance system that allows you to ‘feel’ the truth within. It is when your mind convinces you to not listen to this system is when you go awry.

Your ego wants to be in control to ensure your self-survival. It will do ANYTHING to convince you to listen to its errant ways. Deep in your heart is the benchmark of reality pre-programmed into your being that affords you to ‘reflect’ your thoughts, feelings and beliefs against in order to determine which way you need to proceed. It is when your ego cuts off this channel that you begin to go astray from your Divine purpose and go against Divine order.

There are never easy answers; only more difficult questions when you allow your ego to steer the wheel of your being. There are always easy answers and enlightening questions when you allow the Spirit of God within to steer your course with Divine love. Perceived problems exist for you to learn to live in Divine trust. It is in your choice of choosing Divine love that you clear your channel between your heart and mind to proceed in Divine order effectively, efficiently and energetically.

be ye therefore open to Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NEO-FASCIST?

In regard to a placard saying the following that I recently posted:

A Conservative says, “If it hasn’t happened to me, I don’t care.”

A Liberal says, “This should never happen to anyone, and that’s why I care.”

One commenter stated the following: “What is your incentive in saying such a neo-fascist regressive statement?”

First off, me posting this accurate statement does NOT make me a Neo-fascist. The definition is following:

Neo-fascist: A person who desires to ‘reestablish’ a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. Any RIGHT-WING nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and LIBERALISM [dictionary.com].

Regressive: moving backward; undoing what has already been established; obtained from or characterized by backward reasoning.

Since I am a progressive, I recognize that many conservatives are caring and loving people. It is their leaders who are lying to them and misinforming them about their clandestine and selfish agenda. I also recognize that many liberals are caring and loving people as well, and that their leaders are in constant gridlock with right-wing tea party neo-fascism which tries to suppress opposition and criticism, convert our democracy into a plutocracy, promote nationalism and foster separation of the middle class by race, sexual orientation and financial means.

Fascism OPPOSES liberalism. By making the above statement I am ‘observing’ and ‘recognizing’ the obvious traits of the people of these different philosophies. I am NOT using backward reasoning at all, and therefore are not being regressive. It is always prudent to know ‘what’ you are saying before you say it. In this case, I am neither a ‘neo-fascist’ nor a regressive. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

UNITES US

Your inner spirit unites us all in Divine Oneness. It is our minds that divide, separate, resist and fight that which we believe threatens our survival.

Stop believing what you are told by your mind and start trusting what is revealed by your inner spirit.

Your Divine purpose will not unfold perfectly in Divine order until you do. Be ye therefore trusting in your inner spirit by embracing Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE TWO THINGS

What are the two things that determine you fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order?

Being attracted to what you know you are created to be and not being distracted from it by things you believe you need to do in order to feel satisfied. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

HONORING THE DEAD

In honor of all of our dead that gave their lives in wars, battles and confrontations, we all need to agree to seek an everlasting peace with one another. If we don't, then their deaths are in vain. Why? Because they gave their lives for us to live in peace. Peace is our Divine right when we align ourselves with the Spirit of God within. Death is what results from listening to our egos resist and fight what we don't understand.

Following, is a repost of commanding peace:

"Peace! Be still! This command of Jesus is a result of recognizing the authority and dominion that God has given us over the natural universe. Jesus knew the secret of this command and used it effectively to remove confusion, fear and chaos.

When raucous, offensive and negative thoughts dominate the stage of your mind recite this command and watch them minimize and disappear. We are children of the Most High God and we have the power He has bestowed on us to reshape the universe within and affect the universe without. Use the power we have been blessed with to create a peaceful world right now!" ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

PROSELYTIZING

Now, in all of my writings have I ever tried to recruit any of you to my way of thinking? I have used scientific analysis to support spiritual revelation and have been accused of proselytizing others into believing fairy tales?

How many times have I written about discharging erroneous beliefs and embracing Divine wisdom? How many times have I stated that no one can tell you about God; you have to develop that relationship on your own!

Yet, when some massive egos with inherent agendas of control, domination and manipulation assert their ‘skew’ on things, they resort to minimizing that which can NEVER be minimized.

Thank you, my friend, for being you. It is has allowed me to feel great about being me! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

FAIRY TALES

When you succumb to the illusion that in your decrying of that which you perceive as being fairy tales, you reveal that you are more ‘full of you’ than you are concerned about others.

It reveals that you have exalted yourself to the status of ‘town crier’ in a vain attempt to be recognized for your ability to see what others can’t.

It is not in the fact that you can see what others can’t; it is in the presumption that how you see it is more valid than anyone else’s vision of it and that they must see your way and not theirs.

The ego operates by controlling, dominating and manipulating information and others to ensure its self-survival. Without the attention being brought to it, it ‘believes’ it serves no useful purpose. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

BELIEVING

If atheists would just admit that it is their egos that drives them to call what I write, 'fairy tales', they would learn exactly why they ‘believe’ the way they do.

They do NOT have some specialized knowledge reserved for the few who choose not to 'believe' in the Divine; it is their belief not to believe.

Only when they come to realize this will they have the edge on reality. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

THE STRENGTH
OF CONVICTION

Every belief system is held up by the strength of conviction to their inherent beliefs. If you repeat a thought over and over again and accept it as true it becomes a belief. Beliefs layer upon one another and form a rigid belief system that an individual relies on to reflect off of in their experiences.

Religions, science and atheism are ALL belief systems. If you deny that, then you believe that what you ‘know’ is truer than what others believe. Your beliefs have fooled you into believing that you have an edge on reality that others don’t.

Knowing comes from your Source of stillness, silence and presence. If you choose not to believe this that is your right. However, you have no right to tell others that what they ‘know’ within is not true and what you believe ‘without’ is truer.

When you do this, you are allowing your ego to control, dominate and manipulate reality to suit your selfish agenda. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

YOUR WAY OF THINKING

What does it mean to proselytize someone to your way of thinking? It means you make an attempt to convert someone to your way of thinking. In essence, you are recruiting their belief system to follow your belief system.

Just because you have repeated thoughts over and over and have accepted their existence and conclusions as being true does not necessarily mean that they are valid. Knowing the definitions of words and where they originated from reveals the words’ intent.

Share what you believe and what you know with others in order to help them decide what is real for them. Never tell them what to believe or what they should know.

Point the way to knowledge and allow them the dignity of making the trip on their own. Be ye therefore resilient! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

NOT VALID

When you refuse to accept the possibility that the truths in which you believe are not valid, you have sealed your fate. Beliefs are repeated thoughts that you accept as true with minimal validity. If it is at all possible that some of your beliefs are not valid, then it is highly probable that you will experience challenges to test the validity of those beliefs.

Refusing to accept the possibility means that you have a vested interest in the outcome; it means that you have stake in the game. Truth cannot be blinded by agenda for if it is, it is NOT valid. Seeing beyond what we believe is allowing the possibility that what we believe is true and NOT valid. Validity requires repetition of similar occurrences just like belief requires repetition of thoughts that we ‘accept’ as true. When you deny the possibility of your beliefs not being valid you have increased the probability that they aren’t.

Why? Because that which does not stand up to consistent challenges is not valid. Your individual truth is predicated on what you know is within you more than what you believe is without you. When you deny your inner wisdom you are denying your very existence as a being of light; energy and matter functioning as a living being. Go within to know who you truly are and stop living from what you believe you are.

You will come to know your Divine purpose as it unfolds in Divine order. You be at the point of intelligence to always question what you believe and trust what you truly know. Be ye therefore open to the possibilities that your beliefs are not always valid. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
