As you go about your day smile and be thankful for all the blessings you have received. When you pay for your items at the store, smile at the clerk. Talk to them and lift them up with positive expressions. Share laughter, be kind and swim through the energy ever-present while expressing good vibrations to all you meet. Be a giver of the gift of love and the perception of a difficult path melts into oblivion.

Give to the world the way you want it to give to you and it will comply. Many blessings come as perceived hardships when in fact they are what you need to become aware of to feel fulfillment. A negative reaction would be to feel that you are being inconvenienced, wasting your time and lashing out at others for your own unaccceptance of the perceived problems that you have created. A positive proaction would be to develop a process of discharging emotional reactions that don’t serve the manifestation of your Divine purposes in Divine order and following through on contributing to the world by sharing your unique talents and abilities.

Be a creator of fulfillment and not the result of your lack of inaction at the appropriate time to manifest your Divine purpose. It is not something to take lightly or put on the back burner. It requires diligence, monitoring and a true willingness to be a light in everyone’s life. May you shine your light everywhere you go and to everyone you meet. The blessings are immeasurable. May you remain constantly aware of the blessings of the Divine and share them every opportunity that you receive. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Asking the question of the existence of the Divine reveals that the ego needs it to be answered in order to justify its own existence.

An imbalance of knowingness and perception creates an ongoing challenge over the existence of divinity or not. Allowing oneself to be open to Divine existence puts the ego in its place once and for all.

This, in turn, will reveal the presence of the Creator and the experience of ongoing co-creation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Stop; take a moment to reflect. Look; at the beauty of nature and all of its marvels. Listen; to the innocence of your spirit calling you home to the bosom of the Divine. Do this several times throughout your day and feel the inner presence guiding you to fulfillment.

Recognition of what is pure and loving keeps you centered on all of your blessings and grateful for them instead of a ‘feeling’ of inconvenience based on your perception of reality and not your knowingness of reality.

Open up the faucet of spirit and bathe in the Divine nectar that tastes sweet with joy, touches you with peace and smells fragrant with understanding. The more you recognize the Divine, the more the gifts of the Divine become foremost in your consciousness.

See the inner stillness with your inner eye. Hear the inner silence of the voice of the Divine. Commune with the Divine and blessings will abound! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


We need a committee to investigate the committee that created the negative committee in our heads and then appropriate whatever resources are necessary to make the committee sit down and shut up.

Oh yeah, we have to first run it by the budget committee (the ego) who is currently under investigation for the coloring of facts and the misappropriations of funds. The watchdog committee (your conscience), for some reason, isn't doing its job! No wonder people 'sit' on committees!

Could you imagine having to stand around and listen to the chatter in someone’s head while the committees are making their decisions? Commit yourself to ending the committees and allow the One to guide you. Not only is it much easier it is infinitely more rewarding!

We will not be forming a committee to analyze this post. Thank you. The Management Committee. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Love is the expression of seen and unseen energy from the Divine into the omniverse.

It sings with joy. It echoes with peace. It reveals understanding. It is all there is and shall ever be.

When we come to accept its presence, allow its divinity and live in its creativity we become One with everything now and evermore.

We are divine beings and love is the essence of our presence. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Do not care what others think about you, what you do or what they think you are. Bridge the perceived gap between where you are right now and what you want to do to be where you want to be. Focusing on accepting where you are right now, what you want to fulfill in your life and making the steps to get there each and every day brings you closer to its realization.

Speak with authority in your life and declare exactly what you want to manifest and the omniverse will part the sea of the unseen energies that connect us all to allow it to be realized in Divine order. Think, speak, act out and behave the way you desire to be from the depths of your heart. Always act as if you have it already because in actuality, you do! If you can think it, you can speak it, take the actions toward it and behave responsibly to manifest it.

Don’t accept how it appears to be now in your life as the way it will always be. Acknowledge its current existence and accept the fact that with Divine guidance you will be led to meet the right people, at the right time, at the right place, in the right circumstance and for the right reason to become fulfilled. As with the missing pieces of a puzzle in your life, re-create what is needed to become fulfilled by using your imagination and developing it into expectation.

Use your talents, skills and abilities to contribute to the greater good and be thankful for being able to co-create with the Divine. Look for the blessings in everything and feel good about yourself and others as much as you allow yourself to maintain the universal vibration of the personal attraction of manifesting your destiny.

When you align your Divine purpose with Divine order natural order moves to actualize it by the daily vibration you maintain. Share the vibration of love and it will be shared with you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Your sharing, teachings and guiding is from the Divine and every time you touch a soul with your love, we all grow and expand. God bless all of you and thank you for making this world a better place in which to exist. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“All the desires in our hearts are really distorted forms of the manifestation of consciousness in some way or the other. It is the great universal Being seeking expression in various types of experiences in this world. But there is some defect in the movement of consciousness when it gets lodged in the body of an individual and imagines that it is somehow or other limited to the extent of that body alone. ...............Aum!” ~Subodh Kumar Misra

To all of those who have lost a loved one and feel a deep sense of loss at their physical departure, remember one thing. As the memory of their presence comforts you, know that the home you have made for them in your heart is the torch by which your path is lit. Peace, blessings and comfort to all who have lost someone special to them. As long as their spirit is alive in your heart they are always with you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When living in Divine order we can master the best of both worlds by allowing the unfolding of our Divine purpose. Aligning your physical expressions with your spiritual understanding is living in the now moment to moment. It is where we are whole, complete and a perfect expression of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Be at peace with whom and what you are. You are where you are because of your day to day choices. Today, choose to be one with your essence; the presence of the Spirit of God. Healing comes when you accept where you are, choose to make it better and take the steps to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order. Joy and understanding are the results of practiced peace. Feel it. Live it. Be it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When those with the longest reach are up a tree, it means that we can now know how great our reach really is. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Every moment we breathe in and breathe out is a blessing. It's another opportunity to swim in the sea of love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Mirrors show us how others see us. They create reflections of what we appear to be and not how we are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If your dharma creates drama, then may your karma run over your dogma.  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A pause in the right place makes a difference! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You are blessed because you know your source. Be thankful and grateful for Divine understanding and it will light your path. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You are a being of Light. You were created from Light, in Light and by Light. Light is the energy extension of the stillness and silence of the Spirit of God.

Every day you shine and project your Light into the world. Allow it to shine as pure as your spirit by getting out of your own way. Clean the filter of your belief system every day by communing with your inner spirit and discharging any and all erroneous beliefs.

Share the peace, joy and understanding of the Spirit of God with everyone and bathe in the pure Light of spirit by sharing love with all. May the Spirit of God always bless you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


At all times the Spirit of God is there within you with the answers to all of your perceived problems.

Others are not your source; God IS! Be the beautiful child of God that you are and let no one steal your light, rent space in your head or lead you away from your destiny.

Being in charge of your small ego self is letting it all go by trusting in God completely. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


In the pureness of spirit lies the truth of reality. It cannot be accessed through the chaos of the external reality but through the peace of the inner reality. It is found by slowing down and putting the external world on pause several times throughout your day.

Removing the distraction form spirit affords you direct communication with the source of all of creation. It is where every answer to any problem exists, every new idea to benefit all exists and every way and means to share love into your world exists.

Clarity comes from inner focus and release and the realization of Divine purpose unfolding in Divine order comes from crystal clear clarity. Polish your inner diamond and revel in its Divine beauty, peace, joy, understanding and love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Quotes by Dr. Dean



What does it mean to 'Tend Your Garden'? Is it a metaphor of life or is it a mundane task that needs to be performed in order to receive 'enlightenment'? Can spiritual principles be revealed in the mundane tasks of life? Or is it in the results of those tasks that we understand how life really works?

Voltaire’s final words to his followers were to ‘Tend Your Garden’. What does this mean? Does it mean that we take up gardening to maintain enlightenment? Or does it mean that we must plant the seeds of greatness within others and nurture their growth and expansion? No matter who we ‘think’ we are, what we do with our lives, where we go, how we interact with others, when we act and/or react and why we even do what we do, we still have to maintain our day to day lives.

We have to support ourselves, maintain our livelihood and our homes, raise our families and do the mundane tasks that keep our environment healthy and clean. The Gestalt in participating in chores of maintenance is the secret to our entire existence. It is just not the willingness to perform these ‘tasks’ but the action and behavior in doing them that reveals spiritual principles in our earthly lives. The feelings we get after cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming the floors, doing the laundry and washing the cars are spiritually profound. They reveal the results of the processes that contribute to a healthy environment. Tending our external ‘garden’ reveals the principles of tending our ‘internal’ one.

Within us is a garden of thoughts, ideas, words, feelings, actions and behaviors that grow and expand as a result of what our belief systems accept as ‘important’. Tending our inner garden means that we diligently make the time each and every day to ‘weed out’ the negative and erroneous beliefs that block the Divine good from bathing us with grace. Putting our egos in their place only comes when we dissect our belief system and eradicate those beliefs that have no basis in fact and are the accepted opinions of others. Removing those weeds that suck the life out of us and rob the good plants of nutrition affords us the ability to effectively ’let go’ of the things that don’t contribute to our growth and expansion.

When our inner garden is ‘tended to’ regularly, we allow ourselves to trust completely in the Divine. Just as the father in the story of the Prodigal Son ran out to meet his son who returned home is how the Divine will meet us with more and more blessings when we make the effort to ‘tend our garden’. Walk toward divinity and it will run to you. After all, we are children of the Most High God and He loves us unconditionally. Peace and blessings to all of you this joyous Easter. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey


Ego is made of 6 primary ingredients that account for how we experience ourselves as disconnected.

By allowing ego to determine your life path, you deactivate the power of intention.

EGO separates us from God.

Here are the 6 ego beliefs…

1 I am what I have,~ my possessions define me.

2 I am what I do, ~ my achievements define me.

3 I am what others think of me, ~ my reputation defines me.

4 I am separate from everyone, ~ my body defines me as alone.

5 I am separate from all that's missing in my life, ~  my life space is disconnected from my desires.

6 I am separate from God, ~ my life depends on God’s assessment of my worthiness.”

(Dr. Wayne Dyer, The Power of Intention & The Shift)

In ‘The Power of Intention’ and ‘The Shift’, Wayne Dyer explains how we deactivate our Power of Intention that comes from the guidance of The Spirit of God when we allow our egos to separate us from God. How do we spot a predominate ego in ourselves and in others? What characteristics does someone display when their ego is in command? First, the ego is always focused on acquiring; things, people, power over others. If people identify too much with their house, their car or their gun (possessions), their ego is in command.

Next, some people define themselves by what they have achieved. How many awards do they display on their walls, how many degrees have they earned or how much they have been recognized by others for their achievements. If this is the case, their ego is in command. Next, some define whom and what they are by what others think of them; basically, their reputation. If what they have consistently displayed is more important than an individual issue, then their ego is in command. When someone identifies with their body as their sole form of existence, then it is the ego that is separating itself from all of life. It does this in order to maintain control because when it is in complete control it can better manage self-survival.

When someone separates themselves from their desires by continually looking outside of themselves for fulfillment, then the ego is in command. The ego seeks not to expect Divine guidance and its bounty because it eliminates itself as the source. It fosters separation from God because if not, its existence will lose validation. The ego’s message is clear; it is separate from God and does whatever it can to convince us that God’s assessment of whom and what we are determines our worthiness to God (sin). Since God created us in love, does He not love us? If He does, then why would He cast a shadow of sin upon us all?

It is in our ego’s illusion of our separation from God that it maintains control over us. We have been, always are and always will be One with God. It is our ego that ‘spins’ the illusion of separation from the Divine with a concept of sin and denial. Christ showed us that we live by grace and that we are ALL children of the Most High God. He bridged the perceived gap that the ego projects to convince that we are all sinners and have come short of the glory of God. He transcended the lies of control, domination and manipulation of the ego to exist in a timeless place of eternal love.

The message should be to all that we are loved and because we are loved we should love all. We have been endowed with grace and greatness and it is up to us to follow the lead of Christ. Tell your ego each and every day, “Those without sin, cast the first stone.” In love there is only support, kindness and contribution. Be the love that you were created to be. May God bless all of you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What do you say when someone seems to have mastered a method of communication that serves others with wisdom, enlightenment and joy? Do you thank them and respect their ‘station’ in life? Or do you recognize that they have traveled a path that has forged their outlook on life due to many lessons along the way? If they claim to have mastered a technique or process that reveals the truth be cautious. It is their path that has brought them to where they are; your path may be totally different.

There are many paths to your destination. Some are convoluted and rocky and others are straight and smooth; but only for a season. When you find someone who says things that resonate with you about their lives and you apply it to yours, it may or may not work the way you believe it will. In the mastering of anything in life you will always get the same result. Your path will forge your thoughts and beliefs, your words will echo them and your actions and behaviors will carry them out. The realization that comes to anyone who masters anything is quite simple and profound. A true Master is one who knows they are a servant. A servant to the needs, wants, desires and expectations of others. One who ‘washes their feet’ with a humbleness of spirit and imparts simple and effective truths.

They ask for nothing in return for they know they are blessed in the act of giving. It fills their spirit with peace, joy and understanding. They are not out to market themselves as the next ‘guru’ of enlightenment. They freely give to others by sharing the Divine light within them. Yes, they might sell books, CD’s and DVD’s. That doesn’t make them ‘wrong’ for doing that. A practical and wise approach to continue a person’s livelihood is to sustain their accepted lifestyle. Some people need to buy books, CD’s and DVD’s to start their own path and there is nothing wrong with that either. Consider the purchases of these materials as tithes to the messenger of the Divine or simply consider it an investment in you. However you look at it, sharing your wealth in order to understand more is always a great investment.

Advisors in spirit are the first step in many peoples’ lives toward a greater understanding of whom and what they are. The next step is for you to start the inner journey of daily Divine communication. This is where you understand your needs and allow them to be met. It is where your wants are seen from their inner motivations and your true Divine desires are seen clearly. It is where you hone your ‘expectation’ of manifesting your Divine purpose into allowing Divine order to fulfill it. When you have mastered your Divine communication by ‘making it the most important thing in your life’ the pieces of the puzzle of fulfillment fall right into place. Out of nowhere things materialize that you hadn’t even considered. You meet people who engage and challenge you. Divine providence precedes you on your path.

When you have truly ‘mastered’ your Divine communication your life will be on automatic. Blessings will abound and happiness in anything will occur. It doesn’t mean that you won’t face challenges. It is not an ‘all or nothing’ state. The challenges you will encounter and how you meet those challenges will demonstrate what you need to do to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order. In the service of others you will realize that the bounty of all of creation is serving you.

Why? Simply because you have chosen to serve. Becoming a ‘master’ is truly being a ‘servant’. Serve all with your talents, skills and abilities. It is your gift to the world and the world’s gift to you is living in a state where life is beautiful and fulfilling. Peace and blessings on your perceived ‘journey’. In actuality, you are already there. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you are surrounded and consumed by apparent adversity, pain and disillusionment, always remember that you are a child of the Most High God. You were created in love, exist in love and are ultimately free with love.

Allowing the presence of Divine love within you to guide you, nurture you and fulfill you will lead you to a place where everything outside of you will be seen in the Divine light of reality; perceptions of the shadows of life and not the source of life.

You are a blessed child of God and He created you to enjoy life and not be fearful of it. Jesus once said, “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you (Matthew 5:12, KJV).

The Kingdom of Heaven is within you and exists around you when choose to see its beauty and exist within it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When we truly allow Divine guidance to operate in our lives we have reached the pinnacle of expectation in trusting the Divine. Our thoughts, beliefs, words, actions and deeds flow from Divine understanding bringing peace and joy to others.

God has given each one of us the gifts of our talents and abilities. In sharing them with others we are creating an expression of Divine love into the world. Be diligent in your prayer, meditation and service to all of humankind and the blessings of Divine love will always be upon you.

Where you are right now, God is. He is within you and will NEVER forsake you. Be His arms, legs, eyes, ears and voice in this world. In this, you are blessed. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
