Observation is the ability to acquire perceptions of occurrences and events in our environments through our senses and is understood by our brains as copies of reality.

Information is the result of acquired observation from the perceived dualistic reality and understood by our feelings as to have or have not relevance to our survival.

Knowledge is the result of acquired information that is understood by the mind. Wisdom is the result of acquired knowledge that is understood by the heart.

Understanding is the key to bridging observation, information, knowledge and wisdom. Developing understanding makes us more aware of everything.

The more we dig deeper, the more we realize that there are many facets to the diamond in the rough. Extend your understanding to all you encounter and the diamond will be polished to perfection! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Are your beliefs holding you back from actualizing your Divine purpose? Are you arriving at the same destination time and time again? Are your results less than stellar? Then it’s time for a housecleaning; a true ‘brainwash’. Cleaning out your erroneous beliefs seems simple at first. However, these beliefs are repeated thoughts that you have held to be true over time. They become lodged in your subconscious and your ego’s survival response utilizes them to react or lash out at others when it feels threatened.

In order to remove these mental constructs and emotional patterns we need to enter a state of relaxation where we minimize the ego’s perceived control and tune ourselves into the peace of the universe. Meditation affords us the result of ‘understanding’ what is beneath our needs, wants, desires and expectations. It gives us a clear picture of what we need to do to fulfill our Divine purpose perfectly.

Making the time each and every day to fellowship with our Creator teaches us what we need to do in order to reflect peace in our lives. Peace is a state where we feel that all is alright. We can only achieve this state when we let go of the people, events, circumstances and situations that have caused us to bury our beliefs in our subconscious minds. Stop allowing your reactions to control your destiny by spending quality time with your Creator each and every day. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


One of the most crucial moments in your life is when you are coming out of meditation. It is the time that you ‘set the tone’ for what is coming. Just like striking a tuning fork, this moment creates a vibration that ‘tunes you into’ expecting the Divine desires that have become clear to you in meditation.

Carrying that vibration with you as you engage your day is paramount in fulfilling your Divine purpose perfectly. A tuning fork resonates a frequency that is the result of a metal structure vibrating in a gaseous environment. It projects that frequency into its environment by creating mechanical waves of force.

Just like that tuning fork, your mental constructs are like the rigid, yet flexible metal and your heartfelt emotions are like the waves of force moving through the air. The combination creates a pitch that defines the fulfillment of your Divine purpose.

Resonate with your Divine purpose through the practice of regular daily meditation. It will bathe you with clarity of thought, definition of Divine purpose and projection of expectant Divine desire. Create your individual song of perfection! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Do the opposite of what disappoints you and you will be creating it in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Why is it that you always find what you’re looking for in the last place that you look? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When we all learn to listen to and carry out Divine guidance we will be truly living in heaven on Earth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Everything you fear will keep you from getting what you want in life. What one doesn't understand one might fear. Understanding why you want something is the beginning to removing all fear. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ~Carl Gustav Jung

They, who listen, grow; they, who act on what they have learned, expand. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Being who you are is your mission in life. Being One with the Spirit of God is your ticket to getting there. Meditation is the vehicle to traverse the perceived journey from self to SELF. All aboard! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


May your Divine purpose shine forth always in your mind, heart, body and spirit. Your destiny is in your choices moment to moment. Be in the moment now and forever. Be who and what you were created to be by getting out of your own way and allowing Divine order to manifest health, wealth, prosperity and abundance in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


My beliefs are just that; my beliefs. Who am I to judge what others believe is right for them? If I deny any form of love, then I have missed the point completely. The point is for us to love one another without judging what others deem is right for them. Embrace love, no matter what form it may take. Jesus said the Sabbath was made for man, and NOT man for the Sabbath. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.




The road to hell is paved with good intentions (originated with Saint Bernard of Clairvaux who wrote "hell is full of good wishes and desires" - source, Wikipedia). An alternative form is the proverb "hell is full of good meanings, but heaven is full of good works."

Just because someone has good intentions doesn’t mean what they are doing to you or us is of value to you or us. Jesus said to pray in your closet, where your communion with God is private. Those who prayed ‘at the wall’ in front of the public ‘already have their reward’ (the respect and adoration of the public).

That is what all of the politicians seek; for us to ‘recognize’ their piety and living by ‘traditional’ values. Values that have worked for them in the past when things were different; values that haven’t moved into the future where all people are recognized for their individuality and unique talents. You can desire the best for others by imposing your beliefs on them and still end up in ‘hell’.

Why? Because your desire was a 'yearning' of the ego trying to manipulate reality to suit its self-serving agenda and not the ‘collective’ well-being of your family, friends and neighbors. Have good intentions and make sure you are demonstrating ‘good works’ by allowing the Spirit of God to guide your footsteps and NOT the presumed values of those who are out to control, dominate and manipulate your very life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Our beliefs don’t really matter. What matters is our understanding, allowance and sharing of the love that emanates from the Spirit of God; the love that discerns and doesn’t judge another’s actions. Actions that ultimately affect our lives and the lives of others caught in the wake of judgment. Discernment affords us the ability to ‘judge’ what is right or wrong for us by observing what occurs in the lives of others and how it affects them.

It is NOT putting another down for their choices but it is recognizing whether those choices have worked for them and whether they will work or NOT work for us. Judgment results in avoiding or ‘separating’ yourself from another because of the choices they have made without regard to what they have experienced in their lives.

If you ’judge’ another, then you too will be judged. It is NOT a death sentence, it is based on what one values as being beneficial or detrimental to themselves. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” ~Jesus (John 5:30).

What does this mean? It means that our small self, no matter how much we enforce our individual will, can do nothing to change anything without aligning ourselves to the will of God.

By listening to the Spirit of God within us, we judge whether or not events, circumstances, occurrences or people are out for our best interests or the best interests of others. When we seek to align ourselves with the Divine’s will to actualize our Divine purpose in Divine order, we are carrying out being what God created us to be.

It doesn’t mean that we stand by and do ‘nothing’ to participate in the manifestation of co-creating our Divine purpose. Another way of saying this is, “I can do everything by simply trusting in God to guide me to co-create the reality of peace that I seek.” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Caveat Emptor! Let the buyer beware! What does this mean? Simply put, the principle that the seller of a product cannot be held responsible for its quality unless it is guaranteed in a warranty (dictionary.com).

Can the Reps, Cons and Neo-Cons on soapboxes GUARANTEE that their austerity measures will produce the results they CLAIM their philosophies will yield? Why are they trying to set the clock back on women’s RIGHTS, civil RIGHTS and basic human dignity? They fantasize about going back to a time that NO LONGER EXISTS!!!

The rules we lived by before the advent of computers still apply now but they have PROGRESSED due to our understanding, implementation and integration of technology. We have grown and expanded due to our willingness to move ahead, NOT BEHIND!

Beware of those who are selling a bill of goods with no warranty. The only way they can be successful is to lie, manipulate the facts and preach FEAR!!! They want us to move backward instead of forward WITHOUT being held responsible for their actions! The only thing that can stop them are the FACTS, the TRUTH and those who care for humankind ABOVE ALL ELSE.

Be the channel for the Spirit of God in this world and forge a channel for TRUTH, decency and giving; NOT control, domination and manipulation of others for their own ends. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Believe not in everything you are taught or experience or you will be subject to your beliefs. If you are subject to anything but the truth, you have given your spiritual power away to conform to your beliefs.

Freedom of expression comes from a dynamic and flexible spiritual center of truth and not from a static and rigid belief system that constricts the manifestation of the unfolding of our Divine purpose in Divine order.

Prioritize your revelation of the truth by making time every day to commune with the Divine in meditation. Ask for guidance through prayer, listen for guidance in meditation and implement that guidance by serving others with Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
