Have your expressions of Divine love fallen on deaf ears? Have you been criticized by some for the joy you are experiencing within? Do you feel guilty for having these wonderful feelings amid the dissension and strife that some others are experiencing? If you feel remorseful in any way then you are overextending yourself into what someone else is feeling.

Compassion is a good feeling but you must draw the line with where your empathy takes you. You have not been going through and experiencing what they have been through. As a matter of fact, your reactions to such experiences could be completely different than theirs. When you judge others for their reactions you too will be judged for yours. What is truly important is that you accept their reactions without allowing them to influence the way you react to your own set of circumstances.

Be who and what you were created to be by allowing the flow of God’s grace to create joy, peace and understanding in your entire being. Operate from that center of peace and bring that feeling of joy with you into each and every thought, word, action and deed. This is truly living in the Kingdom of God every day. No matter what anyone else experiences maintain your center of peace.

The Divine works through you when you allow your being to experience love and joy from moment to moment. Choose otherwise and you will experience the dissension and strife that you witness in others. It’s a simple choice that appears difficult. Appearances are often deceiving and it is up to you to see beyond appearances.

Most people cannot or will not see beyond what is readily apparent. They either ignore what is underlying or dismiss it as too much work. They would rather take someone else’s word for it than spend their precious time in ferreting out the truth. Their priorities are how they can satisfy their next selfish yearning or whim without regard to manifesting anyone’s Divine desires; even their own. When you pay too much attention to what your ego convinces you is important, you miss out on what you need to do to live a fulfilled life replete with success.

May you experience joy, peace and understanding by living in the love of the Spirit of God each and every day of your life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.



The journey within is not a journey at all. A journey is traveling from one place to another or from one stage of existence to another. Growth and expansion is perceived as a journey by us because our focus is mostly outward, when in truth, we truly don’t grow and expand until we turn inward.
The perception of movement is predicated on our consciousness of change. We experience reactions to our environments and acclimate ourselves to their results without challenging their premises. Knowing where things come from requires an inward journey to source. It is removing our minds and hearts from the chaos and tension of our external perceptions and opening the door inward toward peace and joy in our inner being.

It is a proactive step that requires us to ‘faith” our way through complete trust in the Divine. It is a complete abandonment of the perceived ego’s control over our self-survival. It is the final step in allowing Divine order to manifest the fulfillment of our Divine purpose. It is always available to us in every moment of our lives.
We need not ‘journey’ there; just let go and allow. It’s really that simple. It is our ego that convinces us that it is harder than that. Shut off the chatter and listen to the still small voice of the Spirit of God. There is no deception there and no journey is required. It is instantaneous and always present. Open the door inward and experience the nurturing presence of the Divine in every breath you take. Feel each moment as eternity.

Just as the within each drop there is the essence of the ocean, within each moment is the essence of eternity. Time is a relative construct based on motion in a direction. Motion comes from aggregate gasses generating heat and ultimately gravity. Creation is a process of the culmination of that which we cannot perceive becoming that which we can perceive. In each moment is the joy of Creation.

This moment is all we truly have. Breathe in the environment and breathe out love. It is your choice moment to moment. Choose to affect your life with love and not be affected by the perceived turmoil of existence. Maintain your peace at all costs and thrive in your expressions. Be diligent in proacting and not reacting. Allow the guidance of spirit to align you with Divine order. Have a beautiful and productive day! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
