Believing Or Knowing? By Dean A. Banks, D.d.

Do you believe in God? Do you know God? Or do you believe what others tell you about God instead of finding out for yourself?

I believe we are the individualized expressions of the Spirit of the Infinite Creator God. We are the eyes, ears, arms and legs of the Divine in action. We are extensions of the Divine Spirit within each and every one of us.

But what I believe doesn’t really matter. What matters is what I KNOW. I know that the Divine is within me just as it is within everything in Creation. How do I know this? Because I have thoroughly investigated the world’s religions, philosophies and belief systems and realized that they are mostly human made!

What the Divine reveals to you

in deep meditation is from the essence of all of life. It is the center of well-being that shares Divine love through your inner heart into your everyday life. In the stillness and silence of your inner well-being reside the answers to everything you would ever need to know. You gain knowledge from understanding information and you gain wisdom from understanding knowledge. By allowing your imagination to run free you are allowing the Divine to bless your life.

From the stillness and silence of the Divine Infinite Spirit of God springs all action on the canvas of the perceived dualistic reality. What we sense and experience is a 'copy' of that reality in our brains and what we 'feel' within the depths of our beings is the guidance and experience of the Divine.

Our daily challenge in life is let go of what we


believe and live from what we know within. We were created from and are the embodiment of Divine love. In that sense, we live in Oneness with the Divine at all times. Some of us just don't know this and might not ever know this. Our duty is to share Divine love and knowing with all and not try to make anyone believe or not believe in God. It is not our duty to ‘save’ anyone else from ‘sin’ or aberrance. It is our duty to accept responsibility for it and share Divine love to make the aberrances in our world change.

We are blessed when we operate from our inner knowing and let go of what we have been taught to believe. It is in our holding to our erroneous beliefs that we separate ourselves from God. Our egos will fight and resist what we perceive as being against us instead of simply allowing it to pass through us unfettered by our erroneous beliefs. Choosing to know Divine wisdom instead of parroting the ego’s beliefs is never a battle; it is a simple allowance of what is to be what it is without attaching our beliefs to it. Peace. ~Dean A.
