Our society deals with abuses by putting its perception of what it construes as the sources of the abuses in order to distract you from the true sources. If you remain distracted you won’t be paying attention to what others are doing in setting their collective agendas. When someone drinks too much it is referred to as alcohol abuse. When someone does drugs too much it is called drug abuse. In fact, it is neither. It is people abuse. In order to accept responsibility for one’s actions it is essential that your focus be on what is the source of the actions; not the expressions in your behavior. The same occurs when people refer to our collective problems as ‘the system”, “the government” or “entities” such as corporations, all of which are constructs of “the people”. Focus on bettering the people as well as the ‘entities’ (corporations, government, et.al) of society and we truly begin to handle our collective “problems” and move into the mutual growth and expansion of society as a whole. When we are honest with each other and accept the responsibility for our collective actions we begin to realize a state of true peace on earth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
The experience of God is beyond any and all beliefs. It is available to anyone who goes within and centers themselves on the truth. Suffering in life is a false perception based on a lack of knowing the Divine. Pain is a reminder to us that something is wrong and directs us back to an awareness of the Divine. We experience life as a projection of manifestation which sooner or later brings us home to the Spirit of God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
If people only knew that some of their values are based on complete misinterpretations of the God’s ‘Word’. It probably wouldn’t matter to them if they are too tunnel-visioned to be aware enough to know that their ‘beliefs’ are based on someone else’s opinion. Just because an ‘authority’ figure tells you their opinion doesn’t mean that it is ‘fact’. It might be based on facts but it is ultimately their interpretation of the facts. Opinion seems to be more important than fact with some people who are too willing to let others do their thinking for them. God has given all of us the power of a discerning mind. Use it to carve a path to your spirit by allowing God’s grace to operate in your life and making the time and effort to get out of your own way. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
