What We Are! By Dean A. Banks, D.d.

What are we? Are we just bodies that move about randomly during life and decompose into the environment after death? Or are we more that what we believe we are?

The most intriguing question we can ever ask is the question about exactly what we are. Some say we are nothing more than bags of chemicals and water that came from supernovas; and that’s it! Some say that we are divine spirits that have come to live in these bodies to experience emotions. Others say that we just animals that think we are more than animals and come to learn that we are nothing more than animals.

Whatever we believe that we are is not necessarily what we truly are. It is what we believe we are. Beliefs are nothing more

than repeated thoughts that we accept as true. We repeat them so often that they become incorporated into our belief systems that reside in our subconscious minds. When subjected to fight or flight scenarios we react more with what we have programmed we believe than what is actually happening. This is part of our inherent self-survival mechanism that is chemically triggered in our reptilian brain.

However, our intelligence can change these reactions into proactions by planning out what to do when negative scenarios unfold. Instead of reacting to what appears to be harmful, we can train ourselves to be proactive. Being proactive means “serving to prepare for, intervene in, or control an expected occurrence or situation, especially a negative or difficult one; anticipatory: [dictionary.com].” By learning what doesn’t work, we can reprogram ourselves to do what does work by simply making a plan and implementing it!

Here we


are; an amalgam of all of our thoughts, ideas, feelings, beliefs, actions and behaviors. We are broadcasting all of whom and what we are into your environment and co-creating just what we are right now. Where are we? Do we trust in the still small voice of the Divine completely every day? Or are we trusting in that chaotic large voice of our egos steering us to be selfish, self-centered and rigid in our beliefs?

In the flexibility of spirit flows Divine truth and manifests every expression of life as thriving in Divine love. In the posturing of the ego we are treading water; surviving and not moving in a direction. We might think we are, but all positive fulfillments of our Divine purposes never comes from selfishness but in giving the very thing we desire the most to others lovingly.

By broadcasting Divine love continually and aligning ourselves with the blessings of Divine love, we will be manifesting our Divine purposes in Divine order. Otherwise, we will always be a victim to the expression of natural order from the very vibration we are actively broadcasting. When we change our broadcasting channel and live from faith and not from fear, we are living in Divine truth. We are worth it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
