What is denial? Other than a river that runs through Egypt, it is a reaction to the perception that what is occurring is not in your favor. When it occurs, turn it around immediately! Embrace acceptance! Teach your ego that it ain't all that! You do not have control over the actions of others; you can influence those actions, but not control them. Let the behaviors of others pass through you without attaching any emotions to them.
Denial occurs when experiences are contrary to the way you think it should be. You are not the be all and end all ofexistence. You are a part of the whole of existence that carries that whole within your being, but when you deny the way the omniverse unfolds you are damming up the river of Divine order. You are, in effect, saying, “This is not the way I want it to be! And I will not budge until I get my way.” Sound familiar? It comes from feelings of entitlement.
Recently, a corporate executive was pulled over driving in the diamond lane in California because he was the only one in the car. The diamond lane is for ‘multiple’ passengers in carpools to cut down on the amount of cars in traffic and on the subsequent pollution expelled into the air. What was his excuse? He said that he had corporate papers in the passenger seat and since corporations are people, he could use the diamond lane. WTH? That’s someone suffering from a major case of entitlement.
Joe Scarborough went off on his show one morning about how the Democrats in the Senate have not addressed spending cuts because they are feeling entitled to do so. WTH? Now, is there anyone in the Congress who feels entitled? Can we say Boehner, McCain and McConnell? They talk about Social Security, Unemployment and Medicare as ‘entitlements’ when in fact they
The Republicans scream about spending cuts all of the time. But why? Is it because there is too much pork or is it that they want to shift those dollars to the military industrial complex in which they are heavily invested? It’s a smoke screen for them to benefit with their ROI in the complex, or in energy production. Remember, Boehner is invested in the pipelines with fracking licenses along the route of the proposed Tar Sands pipelines. No wonder he wants the pipelines to pass in Congress! Always look for the money trail. Where is it coming from, who is handling it and where is it going!
If you believe their rhetoric you are living in denial because you feel entitled to have things your way. You are not living in the reality of the fact that Divine order will move natural order right through you whether you deny it or not. When you deny the unfolding of Divine order into natural order you are pitting yourself against others AND yourself!
Allowing Divine love to move through you and place you at the right place and the right time with the right people to receive the bounty of omniversal abundance is NOT living in denial. It is accepting things as they are and allowing them to be changed favorably for ALL concerned! Stop rolling down the river of denial. Move toward the shores of acceptance and allow Divine order to move natural order for the benefit of all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
