In theory, the government has its purpose. Where it goes awry is when people use their positions in government to learn the system and then sell themselves to the highest bidder for imparting the knowledge of its inner workings.

It is their egos that have sold us all short of benefiting from government services. Put the blame where it should be and then we can more effectively deal with the solutions.

For example; their removal from being able to work as corporate lobbyists during and after their terms in office! If violated, then heavy fines, jail and public exposure will be the punishment for their obvious aberrances.

Until we enforce consequences for aberrances, nothing will ever happen to check the egos of bureaucrats and politicians. While they are distracting you with one hand, always make sure you are watching the other hand as well. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Luck is what the unaware attribute to what occurs when they have aligned themselves with Divine order and what happens as a result appears fortuitous to their perception of well-being.

When the chips fall your way you perceive it as a blessing. However, what is more beneficial to you is when they don’t fall your way and you become aware of the mechanism that fostered their creation.

What appears to be detrimental in the short term can be beneficial in the long run when you trust in the Divine completely to manifest your Divine purpose in Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Did you know that while you were paying attention to what others were saying and doing that you were not listening to what you should be doing?

When you become too absorbed in what your perception of reality reveals you are cutting yourself off from what your heart is telling you. Your heart ALWAYS knows the true motivations behind the actions of others because it ‘feels’ that motivation within.

Listen to your heart and know what is going on. Act on what it reveals no matter what anyone else, including your own mind, reveals. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If you don’t like what I write, then don’t read it. If you don’t like my attitude, then go somewhere else. If you think I am a money hungry fraud seeking to extort good people from their hard-earned dollars by talking about God, then go you know what to yourslf! You see, I do what I do because I listen to what the Divine tells me in my heart.

I don’t need anyone else’s interpretation of what I hear within to know that I love my friends, share my heart with them and always point them to listen to the Divine within them. It’s not about what I say or do but about what you say and do from listening to the Divine within. It’s not about me, my ego and my acerbic attitude. It’s about what you do with what you have from what you listen to within.

Those who don’t get that will say that I am using people to make money anyway I can. That clearly reveals just how non-genuine they are; for if they were, they would not try to second guess what I am feeling and substitute it with their own fears. Don’t allow the fears and idiotic behaviors of others to affect your peace.

Do what the Divine leads you to do and be thankful you were led to do it. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you stand up for what is right and truthful challenges will come tumbling down the hill and avalanche you with problems to deal with and solve. One after the other, in succession, and there will seem that there is no end in sight. You will want to have it stop but it keeps coming and coming. You have placed yourself in the vortex of the egotistical yearnings of selfish individuals and you are now in their way. They will do whatever they can to side-step you, push you out of the way or trample you under foot. You have become the obstacle to fulfilling their selfish yearnings and they will do anything they can to get you out of their way.

Standing up for what is right and truthful brings the cavalcade of negative energies rapidly to the doorstep of your mind. It lays heavy on your heart and you feel the anger and pain towards those who have hurt you. Remember, they don’t know that it is their ego that’s lashing out at you because they are living in fear. Send the spirit within them love that they will realize their aberrances but don’t allow their aberrances to hurt you and steal your inner peace.

Stand firm on the presence, knowledge, power and creativity of the Divine and let their acrimony pass through you without it disturbing your peace. It is not an easy thing to do, but like practicing an instrument, you eventually will master your own personal technique in relaying the song in your heart. You are a divine being with the co-creative power to change your world for the better or for the worse.

Choose that which doesn’t suck you into the vortex of negativity and makes you bitter and resentful. Move into the vortex of love and move toward the peace, understanding and joy that comes from living in Divine love now, and ever more. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Many years ago I had decided to never allow con-artists into my space; yet, they repeatedly make themselves apparent thinking that they will never get caught. Guess again, egocentric pricks! Your own selfishness and self-centeredness will trip you up one day when you least expect it. How do I know this? Actually, it’s quite simple.

The more you spread your deceptions, contrived vitriol over me and just how ‘good’ of a person you ‘truly’ are, the more you step in your own bullshit. In your quest to prove your projected veracity you will fail to have the support you need for your house of cards. When the winds of truth blow through your façade, it will break down your lies and reveal your deceptions.

As the omniverse moves from chaos to order and back again, your actions will be revealed for just what they are; aberrances of the lowest order designed to control, dominate and manipulate others into a false reality to serve your own selfish agendas.

You will be known by the fruits that you bear and when the truth curses your existence, everyone will know just whom and what you truly are! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


A friend sent me this check list to forgiveness. It is A Check List To Ascertain A Need To Forgive by Dr. Charles Stanley. I would like to respond to each point:

Do I find myself holding resentment towards someone who has wronged me in the past?

If someone has wronged you in the past, the ego responds with feelings of resentment. Why? Is it because you are not forgiving them or is it because the other person wronged you? When you set standards of behavior for yourself and others disrespect or abuse those standards, you have the choice to either resent them or the behaviors they have displayed. If, after making the other person aware of their behaviors toward you and they still treat you in the same manner, the obvious response is to resent not only their behaviors, but the person displaying those behaviors as well. Remember, we are all spirits expressing ourselves as human beings and when we ‘feel’ uncomfortable around those who ‘refuse’ to learn acceptable behaviors, it is time for us to forgive the person and move on. If you continue to feel resentment, it doesn’t make you a bad person; it makes you a person who believes in the high standards of behavior you have adopted. Don’t let the behaviors of others rent space in your head; however, don’t allow their aberrant behaviors to disturb your peace either.

Do I secretly hope the person that has wronged me will get what they deserve?

So what if you do? Does that make you unforgiving or bad? Hardly. If someone else has done something to hurt you and others don’t be fooled by the ones who say, “Oh, just forgive them!” Why? Because forgiveness doesn’t mean that you become a doormat to their aberrant behaviors. It means that you separate the spirit within them from the human behaviors they display and forgive them as being spirit and don’t condone their human behaviors as being acceptable.

Do I talk negatively about any person who has offended me?

And so what if you do? Does that make you a bad person? Or just a hurt person? Too many times some people always state that it is you ALONE who has created what your experience and no one else. Bullshit! We are ALL co-creators and the aberrant behavior of others doesn’t mean that we express those behaviors as well. Talking negatively focuses your disdain over their negativity and permits you to further understand your choices to not emulate their behaviors. It is when you hold onto resentment and negativity for too long that you begin to hurt yourself significantly.

Do I blame any person for the way my life has turned out?

If you do you are only partially right. If someone attacks your character or behaviors, it forces you to readjust your attitudes and behaviors in reaction to the other person’s behavior. This is part of the process of growth and expansion. It is when you ONLY blame others for the results in your life that your ego is blinded to the reality of co-creation. We are all in this ‘soup’ together and what we do affects others as well as what they do affects us.

Am I frequently angry, bitter or depressed?

Well, who wouldn’t be when some asshole only thinks of themselves? Come on people; forgiveness is more for us than them. It is forgiving ourselves for our reactions to their aberrant and selfish behaviors as well as forgiving them for displaying those behaviors. Anger is a NATURAL feeling that you haven’t been treated fairly. It is a ‘convergent’ and secondary emotion that comes from the ‘divergent’ and primary emotions of frustration and inequity. Some psychologists disagree and say that anger is a primary emotion however, when you look at the layered emotions underlying anger you find that anger is the ‘result’ of not being able to resolve these underlying ‘layered’ emotions.

If you choose to forgive it is a proactive divine choice and demonstrates your growth and expansion. However, never forget that you are human and that your choices along the way to forgiveness are natural and part of the process of complete forgiveness. Don’t try to take shortcuts that will ultimately create further inner anger and hostility to those who are more aware of themselves only, than the fact that others have the same right as them to express themselves responsibly. Forgive others for their aberrances, but don’t allow them to make you into someone that they can walk all over. Get away from those who care more about themselves than anyone else. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When the pressure is on the space in between gets contracted so much that what was once perceived at a safe and manageable distance now becomes too much to handle.

Releasing the perceptions of confinement and convolution requires a mind and heart being at peace within. It requires an understanding of the greater picture and living in a feeling of joy that all is unfolding perfectly.

It requires an experience of living in Divine love no matter what you may be experiencing. Ultimately, trusting completely in the Divine to forge your path forward despite the apparent obstacles is the engine by which your vehicle moves through life.

The degree to which you trust determines the degree to which you manifest your inner desires. Let go of that which appears to force you to live outside of yourself and embrace that which allows you to live from within yourself.

You will never experience complete fulfillment until you do. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I’m sure you have all heard this expression. It was made famous by Judge Judy Sheindlin in your book by the same name. It basically means that someone disrespects your intelligence enough to try and convince you that what they are doing is other than what it is. On the surface, many people try to do this in order to protect themselves from scrutiny or judgment. However, just because that this is possible doesn’t mean that it is ALWAYS that way. I’ve seen Judge Judy go way beyond in her ‘judgments’ citing this point, when in fact, it wasn’t what she thought was happening.

You cannot make blanket statements that apply to every situation. There are many ‘sub modalities” to any occurrence in life; there are things seen and unseen. When you assume another’s motives without looking at things from their viewpoint and their intent, you are making a grave mistake. You are second guessing what they did with YOUR values and NOT theirs. We all have values that we live by and share with others. However, when we impose our values on others that are not incumbent to their experiences, we have blatantly missed the mark. Judges do this a great deal of the time.

They are more concerned about form and procedure than content and substance. They are lazy and taking the easy way out so they can remain ‘politically correct’. I say to them the same thing that Judge Judy says in her book, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.” When our system more accurately reflects the values of truth and justice over form, procedures and perks, perhaps then we will be able to know just how much the legal system has been pissing on our legs for years and telling us it’s raining. Shame on you to all of those in the legal profession who value winning more than the truth! You will be known by the fruits that you bear! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You don’t always have to be caught with your hands in the cookie jar to be guilty of deception. The first one to deny the act knows more than they are saying because they fear being caught.

When you attack the truth and bear false witness it might protect you in the moment, but eventually you will found out for your deception.

Whether one feels guilty or not, the trail of cookie crumbs always leads to the perpetrator. Those who lie, deceive and point the finger at the innocent will pay the price for their selfishness when they least expect it.

Living in truth is the quantum of solace. Inner comfort, shared humanity and living in Divine love always relay the truth. Living in deception is the quantum of dissension.

Inner discomfort, selfishness and living in acrimony exemplify the guilty parties. Observe, evaluate and know the truth by the actions others display and the fruits that they bear. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The ultimate act of love is to love your enemies and pray for their healing regardless of how they are treating you or others.

To fight is to resist and what you resist in life persists until you learn to allow it to be and pass through you without affecting your peace.

Living in Divine love means that you allow nothing to affect your inner peace, understanding of living in Divine order and your ongoing state of inner joy as a result.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.




I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. All of you have a permanent home in my heart rent free!

What you have given me I can never repay but I will continue to do my best to be of service to your hearts.

Because of all of you I now know the true meaning of friendship; sharing Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What you do with what you believe you have makes you what you are. What you do with what you know makes you who you were created to be.

Be that which you know you are no matter what you perceive and believe opposes you. Knowing trumps believing when you trust in the Divine to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order!

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Always remember that what you need to hear comes when you need to hear it in order for you to use it in your life.

The Divine speaks through all of us and when we share what the Divine says we are sharing Divine love. Thank you all for being there for me to share with you.

Your love and support completes my life and brings me peace. God bless you all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What does it mean to be ‘livin’ on the edge’? It is an idiom that means that you have the type of life in which you are often involved in exciting, challenging or even dangerous activities. Aerosmith has a song depicting exactly what it is; read the lyrics below. In actuality, everything we do comes from the edge of consciousness and becomes manifest in our lives from us livin’ on the edge.

When you see an iceberg from above the surface of the ocean you only see what is on top. Below is the bulk of what makes up the iceberg and pushes it above the surface. Like a seed that moves through the dirt toward the light your thoughts reinforced by your feelings bring forth what we all see from you.

However, what is within you is hidden from view and is what has created what we all see. If you consistently think thoughts of mutual growth and expansion reinforced by feelings of exhilaration and joy you will affect your world positively.

If you consistently think thoughts of selfishness and distraction reinforced by feelings of acrimony and dissension you will affect your world negatively. Sound too simple? That’s why most people never get it.

It is your inner attitude that creates what is reflected in your outer world. Project that which you wish to receive and your awareness will be focused on the opportunities to live it. God is within you every day so seek the guidance of the Divine but live your life on the ‘edge’ of your consciousness creating your reality.

Be diligent in what you think and be discerning in what you feel about what you think. When the two are in alignment, the creation of that seed will manifest. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


As the stress builds you cut off more and more of your access to Divine peace. Things start cascading from one mistake to another. Forgetting one thing causes three others to not unfold properly and you have to backtrack to unfold things in natural order.

Missed opportunities are the result of paying too much attention to that which stresses you out. When you are in a reactive mode you are living outside of yourself and NOT living from Divine inner peace. Proact instead of react by letting the stress build on its own.

Discharge it by allowing it to pass through you into oblivion. Nothing, nothing is worth you allowing it to rob your peace. Always remember that the Divine is in control and not the stresses of life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


If you live your life with blinders on no wonder you can't feel the movements of the omniverse!

You are what you think about, what you feel within and what you do without.

Be open to what you do not perceive for in that is the key to understanding all of life!

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Never make posters with bad spelling or bad grammar; your message will be diluted by the inaccuracy of the presentation and the thoughts and feelings you wish to instill will be lost in not being thorough. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Be happy with whom and what you are and that which you possess.

Envision what is coming your way with the eagerness of optimism and anticipation of living in well-being.

Be patient; release all doubts, worries and fears; feel worthy to receive YOUR bounty!

What you give and share to others will not be received by you until you allow it to be! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

In order to win you must surrender! ~Amy Freiert

In order to totally surrender, you must give up winning. ~Dean A. Banks

It is when we learn from each other what works and what doesn't that we truly grow together. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I have faith in the Divine more than I fear what appears to be real. It is in my trust of the Divine that makes me stand on the truth and reason to live in the Divine purpose for which I was created. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What Is Judgment? by Dean A. Banks, D.D.


People some of the times believe that evil will get theirs in the end. And what end is that? The end of a situation? The end of their lives? We might not ever know but one thing is for sure, you WILL reap what you sow. You will receive a harvest from the effort, or lack thereof, of the work that you perform.

When you lie, cheat and steal you might get away with it for a season or two, but your own guilt, karma and misalignment with Divine order will be your own undoing. If you are an egomaniac, guilt will never be an issue because you feel that just because you are you; and that you are justified in your actions.

If you are focused on self-reliance alone, karma will kick in to teach you that you are not the only fish in the sea. If you continually live in misalignment with Divine order, then one opportunity to grow and expand after another will pass you by because you are not willing to share Divine love with others.

Many fool themselves into believing that it is just their actions that will make God love them; nothing could be further from the truth. What is in your heart and the intention that results in your mind is what allows you to experience the peace, understanding and the joy of living in Divine love.

Sow the seeds of greatness in others and leave them alone unless they ask for help. Divine order will germinate those seeds when it is appropriate for them. The farmer never digs up the seeds to see if they have taken root; he trusts in nature to do what it does to make the seeds grow and expand toward the light.

Be a giver of Divine seeds and allow others to grow and expand at their own rate. Those who lie, cheat and steal will experience what they have sown in Divine order. It is not your job to help them get there; it IS your job to let them go and continue your journey through life.

You are here for a Divine purpose; express that purpose by sharing Divine love!  Pray for Divine guidance; meditate to listen to Divine guidance; go out into your community and share that Divine guidance with everyone you meet. The perfection of divine love will bless you with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance everlasting! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


In the timeless beauty of the moment lay the essence of life; pure, still and silent. Always there; always loving; always comforting.

Open your heart to that which nurtures your entire being and bask in Divine love. Know that you are the expression of that which created everything and always trust in Divine presence.

That is what life is all about; trusting in whom and what you are by allowing it to be. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Consultation with Dr. Dean


Are you too emotionally reactive or do you live your life with an expression of gravitas? Do ‘things’ not going you way well up so much emotion that you lose your center of peace? Or do you focus your mind on channeling your heart to manifest the state of existence you know you were created to experience?

Whichever is your external expression know that you were created for a specific Divine purpose. Only when you align yourself with your Divine purpose in Divine order will your expressions be in complete alignment with Divine love.

Love of self comes from SELF. Love of SELF comes from knowing self enough to trust SELF. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Before you give up on your dreams and just exist in mediocrity, remember one thing; God didn’t give up on the dream that was planted in your heart when you were created to manifest it.

Live from divinity and be whom and what you were created to be.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Discard all that doesn’t serve the Divine within and you will be unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order perfectly.

Serving others with Divine love is the way to complete fulfillment. When you share what you desire the most you are blessed with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When faced with adversity always trust in the Divine. What appears to be hurting you will come to pass when you doubt that trust, worry about what will happen and fear the pain of loss.

Trusting in the Divine allows Divine order to affect natural order and move Divine love to bless all concerned.

Trust in the process of sharing Divine love and you will live replete with blessings everlasting. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Consultation with Dr. Dean


When you love what you can’t stand enough to stand your ground you are polarizing yourself to attract everything that can undo what you stand for and challenge your psyche. Remain strong and trust in Divine order.

Those who try to hurt you will reap what they sow just like you will if you waiver in your resolve. Stand up for truth, justice and living in Divine love. Any other way will lead you into the pit of despair where you will be eaten alive by your enemies.

Your enemies defeat you when you allow them to distract you from trusting in the Divine. Stay focused. Stay determined. Be steadfast in Divine love and Divine order will manifest beauty in your life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The power of love is your inner strength. The presence of love is your inner resolve. The knowing of love is your inner understanding. The creativity of love is your inner peace.

The omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience and omniparience of the Divine are within you RIGHT NOW! Be one with that which has given you your very life by ALLOWING the Divine blessings to flow THROUGH you every moment.

Don’t stop up the dam with selfishness, distraction, acrimony and divisiveness. Don’t resist the tidal wave of negativity; allow it to pass through you and give thanks for the blessings of not attaching ANY emotions to the experience.

What you hold onto emotionally will slow you down from experiencing Divine blessings to the fullest. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I became absorbed in a sermon by Joel Osteen this morning. He spoke of people in the terms he got from an airline pilot friend. His friend told him that there are four ‘forces’ that allow and airplane to fly. Lift, Thrust, Weight and Drag. He said that we should spend our time with people who lift or thrust us up and not with people who weight or drag us down with their incessant negativity. A great message and one of the ability to employ precision discernment! The negativity from those who weight us down is controlling when we listen and embrace what they say. When we accept what they say it dominates our thoughts and manipulates our feelings. It is a message from the perspective of the ego and not from a divine perspective.

When you predominantly associate with people that lift you up and thrust you into fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order you are expressing your inner divinity. You are blossoming your inner spirit into the omniverse to affect ALL of life with the gifts you have been given. This doesn’t mean that people who weight or drag you down are inherently negative; it means that they are facing negative situations that have affected them adversely and they might not know how to handle them effectively and they come to you for help. You are the lifter and thruster to them. This also doesn’t mean that you are the weight and drag to the people you look to for lifting you up or thrusting you forward. We are all at various stages in our lives and these stages are dynamic and NOT static. They appear static when we have limited our choices to that which we ‘believe’ we have. It is when we ‘know’ the real choices and act on them that we become dynamic and flexible in the choices that we make.

We can lift ourselves up by praying, meditating and serving others. We can thrust ourselves forward by communicating with the Divine in each and every breath. We can weight ourselves down with the perceptions of lack and limitation. We can drag ourselves down by resisting that which we fear the most. It is always our choice to make and when we honestly accept responsibility for making the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choices; we are truly living dynamically in Divine love. Living in mediocrity is living statically and treading water. You will eventually get tired and slowly drown in the abyss of negativity. Stay positive and maintain that state by dipping in the well of Divine consciousness every day. Stay focused on moving forward and unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order. Don’t allow others to determine your course of action. Allow the guidance of the Divine to reveal the direction you must take to complete and utter fulfillment. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Post


You are the embodiment of Divine love. When you share what you are with where you are and who you are with, you complete the cycle of life and contribute to the growth and expansion of everything everywhere.

Sound too profound? Look at the fact that you are the Divine’s crowning achievement of order from the trillions of years of chaos that existed before you came to life.

With that perspective, you will live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love by being grateful for living in Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Here is the acid test as to whether or not the ‘voices’ you hear in your head are from God or your ego:

If what you hear contributes to the growth and expansion of everyone without inflicting pain on anyone, then it is of God.

If it is anything else, then it is from your ego. Obviously many have never learned this lesson. God is just, truthful and loving. Period! End of discussion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Guidance Channel


When you value the love between you and others you give them the room to grow and expand as they give you the same room. When you value the love between you and your Creator you allow that love to flow through you unfettered by what your ego tells you is happening in your life.

When you value the love in your heart you learn to share it with others; not because it is what you can get from God or others, but because of what it does to help them live in love.

Whatever you give in love is blessing you the moment you give it. Share it freely and if others slap you on the cheek, turn the other cheek and go about your way. That doesn’t mean that you say or do nothing to stop them from hurting others as well.

It means that you don’t fuel their aberrance with reactive anger. Dumping gasoline on a fire is tantamount to spreading that which you seek to diffuse. Plant the seeds of love and move on. Their negativity and acrimony is for them to deal with and NOT you!

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.




The True Secret: Simply allow Divine love to flow through you and bless everyone. Everything else is icing on the cake. Without the form and substance working in harmony with each other, procedure and content will never be realized.

Let go of that which is shallow, hollow and insignificant to your growth and expansion and embrace Divine love wholeheartedly.

The true secret is known when you stop believing in your perceptions and start trusting in divine knowing. It’s as simple as that. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you think you have a handle on something make sure that the handle is fastened securely or you will not get the results you are expecting. Sometimes things appear to be more secure than what they are and you need to anticipate their possible breakdown and make plans for other options.

Always have a backup plan especially when relying on something or someone else to do what you expect them to do. The weakest link in the chain is the one you glazed over and didn’t test. It will be the one thing to hinder your progress and stop you from fulfilling your Divine destiny.

Never overlook what you consider to be trivial details. These are the things that will bite you in the ass when you least expect it. Stay focused; pay attention; and always trust in the inner Divine guidance to light your path! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What if you allowed your greater good to flow through you and over you like water from a shower head? As the water moves over your body you add soap to clean the dirt and germs off of your skin. The mixture of dirt, germs and soap falls to the bottom of the shower and goes down the drain. The water is your inner spirit, the soap is your allowance of Divine love and the dirt and germs are your negative feelings and erroneous beliefs.

Your spirit sings when you allow Divine love to purge you from negativity and choose to know the difference between the Divine desires of your inner divinity and your beliefs in your ego’s yearnings. Allow the negative feelings and erroneous beliefs to go down the drain into obscurity. Your thoughts, feelings and beliefs are ‘by-products’ of who you are and they are NOT you.

You are a spiritual being expressing yourself in this omniverse as a human being. Cleanse your ‘humanhood’ every day with focused prayer for guidance, silent meditation to receive guidance and effective service to share your blessing of Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Let’s talk about sensitivity. A joke is a joke unless someone is so sensitive that they take it as an insult. When you feel that someone is going over the line it’s time for an ego check. If something ‘offends’ you, then perhaps it’s time to look at just who’s in charge.

Over sensitivity reveals emotional scars that trigger posturing and fear. What others say is just what it is; it is what others say and nothing more. Reacting to what someone says as being childish reveals emotional buttons that need healing.

Let what others say pass through you without any emotional attachment and be who were created to be. A spiritual being having a human experience and laughing at what others think they know about you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What we perceive as ‘The Law of Attraction’ is more the ‘Law of Allowance’ being viewed by the ego from its limited perspective. Our brains are more like electrical relays that take emotionalized thought and ‘allow’ what is already there to manifest simply by getting out of our own way.

By focusing on that which allows us to ‘feel better’ in knowing and carrying out our Divine purposes, we harness the mechanism by which Divine love moves through us and co-creates that which we divinely desire.

We can say to the mountain “Be thou removed” and it is not the mountain outside of us that actually moves; it is the mountain of distraction within us that moves for us to be fulfilled and blessed within no matter what appears to be outside. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

Custom Fine Art by F.R. Rittenhouse


Now, let’s get this straight. Just because you believe that there is no God means that somehow I am less informed than you? Somehow you have cornered the market on collating your perceptions into a belief system that denies the existence of a higher power because no one can prove it exists? Somehow your limited senses create perceptions of reality that convince you that there is no God?

OK. Well then please keep following your belief system that is based on your limited senses and perceptions and base all of your reality on the copy of it that exists in your brain. Talk about viewing the shadows and believing that they are reality. What you perceive in your brain is a copy of what exists and it is based on what your senses ‘feel’ and your brain ‘perceives’.

Go ahead and live your life without knowing the presence of the Divine within; it is your right and it is your choice. However, please don’t impose your limited perceptions and beliefs on the rest of us claiming that you know something that we don’t. Perhaps, in reality, it is the other way around and it is you who haven’t come to a place where you ‘know’ something that isn’t sensed and perceived.

The fear that exists within you to not admit that there is something that you don’t know about life is what is holding you in the world of the perceived dualistic reality. Those who live in the spirit KNOW the presence, power, knowledge and creativity of the Divine by observing the results of these qualities in the natural world. From chaos came order and we are the omniverse looking back at itself to observe its wonder, beauty and ongoing creativity.

Believing that all of the omniverse just happened on its own without the benefit of intelligent design is like a roll of the dice that have so many sides that it is very unlikely that a match will ever result. The omniverse exists beyond what you can sense and perceive and to live within that perception only is like being a vegetable in the pot of soup and seeing only the other vegetables and believing that it is all there is.

Your perspective is limited at best and it is predicated on your arrogance of your belief that what you sense and perceive is all that there is. Grow up and use your intelligence to see the patterns and designs in nature that could have only come from intelligent design. Stop looking only at the trees and never seeing the forest. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you tell others what to think, feel and believe you are trying to convince yourself of what you think, feel and believe and are NOT allowing the truth to become apparent for them in their own good time.

Share the seeds of Divine love and allow them to water them on their own. Give what you know to them but never tell them what to believe. Show them how to know and not believe.

Give them the gift of Divine love without expecting them to praise you, revere you or love you back. You are never in control of what another experiences and when you think you are you are allowing your ego to fool you into believing that they must believe what you believe or somehow, they are not as smart as you.

Share what you know more than what you believe and lift others up more than telling them what they should believe. It is not your job to rescue, help or nurture everyone that crosses your path. It is your job to answer them truthfully when they seek your counsel. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


If it’s all the same to you then why do you live by the differences? Is it because you thrive on controversy and acrimony? Or is it that you just don’t know any better? Could it be that you keep looking outside of yourself for something that can only be found within?

At any given moment you can change the channel from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Spiritual Beings in their Inner Sanctum. Your choices forge your experience and when you operate from chaos in the external world you will reap what you have sown from pain to sorrow in the external world AND in your internal world.

When you operate from Divine order in the internal world and sow the seeds of greatness into your life and the lives of others you will reap the joys of life from the internal world AND the external world. Be ye therefore perfect by sharing Divine love with all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Who are the Takers? The takers are the ones who ship jobs overseas and have caused the problems of unemployment of the American worker.

They take more and more profit by paying cheap labor and raise the prices for substandard products here while the COLA and the minimum wage stagnate in its wake.

How can people survive when there are hardly any more jobs here besides insurance commission jobs and retail fast food? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you allow people to walk all over you and then say thank you for the experience, do you really know and care about the fact that you were created for a Divine purpose and it is your duty to fulfill that Divine purpose?

When will you start seeing yourself as the divine being that you are and live from that awareness of Divine love?

When you STOP allowing others to walk all over you and you let them know that you will no longer stand for that behavior or treatment from them.

If they truly respected God and you, they would treat you with the respect that you deserve AND God deserves. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What is an 800 pound gorilla? “The ‘800 pound gorilla’ is an American English expression for a person or organization so powerful that it can act without regard to the rights of others or the law. The phrase is rooted in a riddle: "Where does an 800 lb. gorilla sit?" The answer: "Anywhere it wants to." This highlights the disparity of power between the ‘800 lb. gorilla’ and everything else” [Source: Wikipedia.com].

In spirituality the 800 lb gorilla is the personal ego run amuck. It is the self-righteous indignation of the ego that says what I think, feel, believe, say and act out is what is right not only for me, but for others as well. It is the hallmark of self-absorption that only acts out the values that it feels are correct; regardless of the fact that they might not be for others.

How do you deal with an 800 pound gorilla? You distract it by feeding it with what it wants while you move to an area of safety; your inner sanctum. The only place where ego is completely put in check is when your rest in the bosom of the Divine. Going within each and every day minimizes the effect of the 800 pound gorilla in the room.

Remember though, the 800 pound gorilla will excrete wherever it wants to so be careful not to allow it to make things inconvenient for you; and you always have to clean up its mess! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Are you larger than life? Are you more interesting and more exciting than an ordinary person or thing? If you feel that something, someone or you are larger than life itself it is rooted in the thought of 'speciality'. Since the Spirit of God is within all of us, that, in essence, makes all of us special?

The fact is that we are not special because that nomenclature reveals separation and division of that which cannot be divided. We are either all the same or we ‘appear’ different. Appearances can be deceiving and the fact that what we observe and perceive is not what exists but copies of what exists reveals that our interpretation is based on our own personal chemistry and not what exists in reality!

No one is special. We are all in this soup together and it is up to us to swim in the pot harmoniously with each other without making too many waves that disturb the pot. If you feel that you are special you are fooling yourself. You are no better than me and I am no better than you. We are all on this roller coaster together so let’s look at each other as equals and enjoy the ride! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you give thanks to those who have given all of us the ultimate sacrifice you honor that sacrifice with recognition, appreciation and love.

You honor yourself with their memory every time you stand up for peace and stop waging war. You honor all of life with respect, dignity and divinity by sharing Divine love in favor of the selfish yearnings of your ego.

You are actively making this world into the Kingdom of God on Earth. Be blessed and be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Do you count your blessings every day? Do you look back on each day and give thanks for the fact that you lived it, no matter what transpired?

The fact is that the more you allow yourself to recognize, appreciate and love your life the better you feel about yourself. The less you allow yourself to feel your Divine connection to all of life the worse you feel about yourself.

When you pay attention to the way you feel about the blessings you have received and move them toward sharing Divine love you ARE fulfilling your reason for being here on this Earth!

Stop making excuses for not being whom and what you are and step up to the plate. See that home run and swing for the fences! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Calling things how they are is living in the truth. Blaming those who create the aberrances affords all of us the awareness to see them for who they are and NOT what they want us to believe they are.

It is in that deception that those less discerning end up supporting those who rape our planet of resources and life itself.

Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Some have said to me that all I care about is making money off of my writings. If that were true, would I post here every day?

I choose to give away my time and talents for the express purpose of serving others. I value what I know and that is why I share it.

Have you ever wondered why your heartfelt desires are not being realized in your life? Have you given up on attaining them or have you swept them under the rug in frustration because they haven’t yet manifested?

The reason that you haven’t experienced the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order to realize your Divine desires is because what you believe about them is ‘different’ then what you ‘know’ about them.

We all have the free will to believe what we want and when our beliefs are not in alignment with our desires we are not broadcasting the correct vibration to cull the necessary energies to convert Divine order into natural order.

We come to know our Divine purpose when we share Divine love with others. We come to know Divine order when we share Divine love within ourselves by making the time to go within each and every day and dip in the Divine pool of peace.

As a result of sharing our inner divinity with others and ourselves, we align our Divine purposes with the eddys and currents of the omniversal ‘soup’ of dark matter and dark energy.

The invisible scaffolding that supports the visible omniverse of matter and energy is ‘moved’ by the vibrational match of our beliefs and desires. Without this match you will NEVER move forward and realize you innermost heartfelt desires.

Too simple? Well, the omniverse is the expression of Divine love into chaos and we, as divine beings, are the order that has resulted from that chaos.

We are the magnifying glasses that focus the omniversal energies to co-create the reality that we believe and that we must know! Stay focused and be ye therefore perfect (in focus, i.e.)! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

God has touched your soul when you face your mortality. You have been given the gift of life and now you have come to know that your physical existence will come to an end someday. It is not a time to fear but a time to rejoice. A time to know that no matter what comes your way that you will be going home when you leave this physical plane and live forever in the essence of Divine love.

Your visit here is limited and it allows you to learn that you are ultimately a spiritual being having a physical experience; for a short time. Never fear physical death. It is NOT the end OR the beginning. It is a transition from one plane to another and will continue on forever. Who you are will NEVER die; you will move from one plane to another and you may decide to come this way again or stay in the spiritual realm.

The Divine within is eternal and you are a child of the Divine Infinite Creator Spirit of God.  Nothing can ever harm you unless you ‘believe’ it can. Trust in the Divine and know your blessings instead of believing in your mortality. You are on an infinite journey that transcends time and space and exists in Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Always make time to explore your inner peace. It is the one place where you can slow down and listen to that which creates the reality that you observe, perceive and live in.

Instead of reacting to what has occurred, it gives you the opportunity to proact to what WILL occur. Being prepared for what is unfolding gives you an edge on life that places you in alignment with Divine order.

If you are always being delayed by cross-town traffic, it is time to take another route! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Are you jammed up? Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? Are you taking on too much in hopes of being rewarded for your behaviors?

If so, you are living outside of yourself. What you do comes from who you are and what you want to accomplish. It isn’t about just your intentions; it is about the actions and behavioral results of those intentions as well.

You will never find who you are in what you express; you will find who you are in what you IMPRESS. How you see what you do affects the choices in which you will make in expressing yourself.

Be aware and focused on how things unfold in your experiences. They are key indicators in what choices you need to make to become who and what you were created to be. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

A zero tolerance policy equals one-hundred percent ignorance. Not every situation can be evaluated by rigid standards of discipline, rules or laws. Flexibility in understanding the surrounding circumstances should always be taken into consideration when situations are being evaluated.

Life is NOT black and white; it unfolds in shades of grey with sub modalities that are not taken into consideration with zero tolerance policies. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, but ignorance of the truth and appropriate justice by authoritarian figures imposing zero tolerance policies is no excuse either.

Stand up for your rights and the rights of others and remove the ignorance of zero tolerance. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Religious beliefs become adopted primarily due to the geographical and cultural areas we are from.

However, when we adopt spirituality we become aware enough to drop religion altogether!

Being spiritual in nature I categorically reject any form of religious practice for myself and applaud those who learn from their religions and don't try to ram theirs down my throat. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Atheism is a belief system just like religion because you BELIEVE there is no God.

When you stop believing, you start knowing the truth!

The truth lies in knowing that the unseen underlies and creates the seen.

As long as you don’t know this, you are still locked in the temporal realm of belief and will NEVER see the truth as it is instead of how you WANT it to be. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

There continually seems to be an ongoing debate about the reality of the Law of Attraction. Does is physically work? Do you broadcast energies that physically attract objects in space by the repeated thoughts and beliefs you hold as true? Or are you just a relay of energy that harnesses the invisible scaffolding of dark matter and dark energy that supports energy and matter? Could it be that these explanations are accurate or are they way off base?

It is more likely that what we explain as the experience of the LOA is in fact, the Law of Allowance. When something becomes focused in our awareness we think about it often. We repeat the process of thinking until these thoughts become beliefs. We begin to see opportunities for the realization of these thoughts and feelings. What is similar to this? Have you ever bought a car and drove it for a little while and you start to notice the same car wherever you go?

You never really noticed it before because it wasn’t predominantly in your consciousness. Now that you have become accustomed to what you are thinking and feeling you notice the reflection of it more in your awareness. By focusing on certain thoughts and feelings you now begin to observe events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and people that were always there doing their ‘thing’; you were not aware of these things because your focus was elsewhere.

Whatever vibrations you generate from thoughts and feelings are what will be noticed in your experiences. As you accept these experiences as being positive and supportive of your dreams, ambitions, goals and fulfillment of your Divine purpose, you become more and more aware of their occurrences in your life. Your acceptance of these vibrations create a state of allowance where you ‘clear the channel’ to living in your Divine purpose by less constricted access to the Divine love within you.

As you live in Divine love manifesting your Divine purpose in Divine order, your experiences will reflect that inner alignment and it will ‘appear’ that you are a magnet that attracts things to you, when in actuality, it is you who has cleared your access to the inner channel of Divine love.

The omniverse exists as chaos moving into order by your observations, perceptions and actions within it. You are the magnifying glass that focuses the ever-present energies that exist independent of your awareness of them. As science has demonstrated time and time again, the interference of the observer affects the outcome of what is observed. You are the mechanism by which the omniverse observes and perceives itself.

Harness your thoughts and feelings to project that which you KNOW you want in your life and make the steps to co-create the actuality of those thoughts and feelings. Allow that which fuels your mechanism of co-creation; the purest form of energy known as Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.





Pressure in life comes from resistance. A pressure cooker uses this pressure to rapidly cook items because the temperature rises quicker in an enclosed space. The walls of the pressure cooker prevent the increased heat of the gas and substance contained from escaping which in turn causes the space within the cooker to rapidly rise in temperature; thus, cooking the items quicker. When you resist that which is causing your ‘temperature’ to rise you are creating a pressure cooker in your life. As the temperatures rise you feel the impending need to act quickly to alleviate the perceived pressure.

Instead of resisting that which is heating up your life, allow it to pass through you without attaching any heat or ‘emotion’ to it. Let it escape without having the effect of rising your inner temperature. This will allow you to think clearly and display methodical action without ‘reacting’ to the pressure. If the pressure builds too much from the applied heat of reactive emotions, the integrity of the walls of the cooker will start to break down and it will explode at the weakest point (the safety valve at the top of the cooker).

Before you blow your valve realize that you need to proact in times of intense stress. Go into nature; shut off the phone; unplug from the chaos. Connect to God’s wide area network and soak in that which calms you and alleviates the pressure. Always remember that God loves you and all of creation and that you are here to experience peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is how we feel about our experiences that determines their effect upon us. The gift of friends and family bringing us joy is a fulfilling experience.

The gift of health allows us to engage our needs, wants, desires and expectations of fulfillment. The gift of wealth affords us the means by which we can pursue our innermost dreams in the material world.

The gift of prosperity propels us in the flow of Divine interchange with those we can help and those who can help us. The gift of abundance provides us with the raw materials necessary for us to co-create the reality we choose to live in and share with others.

The gift of knowing we are eternal comforts us in the knowing that we are here to express our Divine purpose in Divine order. Our gifts are many and varied and it is in how we look at those gifts, utilize those gifts and share those gifts that we actualize being whom and what we were created to be.

Being thankful that we are rich in the gifts of the spirit that co-create that which we know is within, and will subsequently manifest without, is the key to opening the door to the inner peace from which all action springs. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I’m sure you all have heard of the ‘Cult of Personality’. It “arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized, heroic, and at times, god-like public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. Sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as "charismatic authority". A cult of personality is similar to hero worship, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda [Source: Wikipedia].”

There are many different ‘cults’ (a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person or ideal [Source: Dictionary.com]) alive and functioning in the world today. One such cult is what I term, The Cult of Financiality. It is the preaching and teaching of the belief that attaining and amassing financial wealth is the secret to complete happiness. Being able to buy what you want when you want it and to sell what you create or invest in to ‘ride the crest of the wave’ at a particular point in the unfolding of history to amass a fortune and effect good for yourself alone.

Now, there is nothing wrong with amassing great fortune as long as you invest in the people who have assisted you in doing so. I recently read about a billionaire who gave away most of his money to help others and left himself only millions to live on. At what point is too much money too much? Where do you draw the line?

If you amass great fortunes to contribute to the growth and expansion of everyone, more so than yourself, you ARE contributing to your communities and this world. If you are hoarding it all for your own edification, you will soon find out just what that ‘edification’ is. Do you know why Bill Gates and his family get richer and richer financially? Because he and his family spend their days giving money away to those in need. They are NOT stopping up the dam with selfish agendas and only personal edification.

When you believe in the self-serving Cult of Financiality you are, in effect, stopping up the dam of allowing the money to flow from those who have to those who need. As the mass media promulgates the fulfillment of attaining financial riches ‘without’ the inherent responsibility of using those riches for the edification of all, people are only getting half of the message. Invest in others with your time, money and prayers. Give to them that which they need and all else will be added unto you AND them! The only ‘cult’ we should ever belong to is the ‘Cult of Divine Oneness’. . Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I would rather tread on sacred ground than walk on egg shells. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Congress is an Institute of Lower Education; ruthless people learn the ins and outs of the congressional machine and when they retire, they sell themselves to the highest bidder to craft legislation beneficial to the corporate megaliths. All of this while collecting 'contributions' from donor corporations. What a racket! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

In your smile is the secret to your happiness. Wear it well! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you fight that which you don't understand you are undermining your peace, corrupting your understanding, dismissing your joy and denying Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When your cup runneth over you have more than you need. When you share that which runneth over with those who don't know their inner divinity, you are sharing that which edifies all of life; Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Illusion is where we live out our lives and the choices we make determine how the illusion affects us. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Living in peace, being understanding of life, feeling the joy in living and sharing Divine love creates a new perspective in our hearts and minds. When a new perspective is born we begin to see the opportunities that were always present but that we didn't recognize because we were under the veil of the ego that fostered division instead of Oneness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Believing in something that you feel is real and imposing your beliefs on others because they are justified to you by what some people wrote down thousands of years ago who have never lived in our time is quite ludicrous.

Why? Because they never had the benefit of scientific knowledge, fought amongst themselves repeatedly, killed one another over the possession of land and animals and used violence and mob rule to inflict punishment on those who were different from them.

To believe the ramblings of anyone who lived in those times is not dealing with reality. Trust in the Spirit of God within and NOT what someone wrote down in a ‘holy’ book proclaiming it to be the ‘Word of God’. Religion seeks rituals, writings and the binding together of those with common beliefs to live in a manner written down in their ‘holy’ books.

People seek spirituality to live in inner peace, understand all of life, live in ongoing joy and share Divine love! Go within and feel the presence of God each and every day. It is there where the truth resides and the guidance you need to live a fulfilled life. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you let your opinions of others determine whom and what they are you are not experiencing the essence of what they truly are. Opinions are beliefs based on observations, perceptions and evaluations of what you have experienced. They are not absolute! They are your assessment of you experience and nothing more.

Allow others to be whom and what they are and that leaves you free to be whom and what you are. If your opinion of someone is based just on how they behave you are NOT seeing the whole picture. However, if their intent and behavior is to cause dissension, hurt and pain to others, then move away from them while sending them Divine love.

You are responsible to share Divine love with all and you are NOT responsible to convince them that they should share Divine love with others. Plant the seeds of love and go about your way. Do not attach any opinions of them that stunt your growth and expansion as well as theirs. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Never get upset with yourself for turning right when you should have turned left. When your actions and behaviors yield less than favorable results it is your ‘reactions’ to, and proactions from, those actions and behaviors that will determine whether you learn from those results or not.

The next time you encounter a similar situation you might choose to turn left ‘believing’ that it will yield favorable results when in fact it might not. Be flexible, be resilient and be aware of what goes on in your environment.

Don’t beat yourself up for mistakes that you didn’t anticipate; learn from them and proact ‘from’ them instead of reacting ‘to’ them. This way, you will not attach any erroneous beliefs to these occurrences that will create more mistakes in the future.

Stay diligent, my friends! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I thoroughly enjoy watching and listening to Joel Osteen. He is electric and full of vigor when it comes to helping others. However, I disagree with him on one main point that he bases on what ‘The Word of God” says from the Bible. He claims time and time again that we need to be warriors. Why? Why must we always fight? What we resist persists and what we fight leads to our blight! Sending someone love who stands against us is hard to do for some, however, it is the beginning of stepping out of the warrior mentality.

Fighting comes from the ego living in the perceived dualistic reality. It is NOT living from Divine love! It is not our choice to become a victor or a victim; it IS our choice to become a ‘sharer’ of Divine love or a ‘resistor’ of it. When you choose to fight it is your EGO that believes it is more right than someone else and you must FORCE them to believe as you believe. When you love you are channeling the essence of Divine power through you to diffuse any and all negativity.

I do agree with Joel that we need to not be bitter and angry when things don’t go our way. The flow of Divine love ‘anoints’ us with what we need to deal with any adversity. Don’t get stuck in the rut of fighting that which attacks you and tries to hurt you. Turn it over to God and allow the flow of Divine love to release Divine retribution to all of those who try to hurt others with their aberrant behaviors. It is NOT your job to ensure evil’s punishment by fighting and resisting what it does. It IS your job to love yourself and others ‘regardless’ of what negativity confronts you.

Your power is in the allowance of Divine love where evil’s power is in its control, domination and manipulation by your ego over the beliefs of yourself and others. Would you rather fight others or love others? Would you rather have others fight you or love you? It is, as always, your choice. Choose wisely, my friends! Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A.

Have you ever really wondered why you haven’t received living in the fulfillment of manifesting your desires? Is it because you are not doing what it takes to express those desires or is it simply because you have given up on attaining the state of peace where you are experiencing those desires? When you align your acceptance and allowance of what you seek with Divine order, you are no longer rejecting and resisting what you ‘believe’ is preventing you from living in peace.

The more you move your rejection of the events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of people into the realm of resistance, the more you push yourself away from alignment with Divine order. It is more important for you to ‘feel’ this alignment than it is for you to just think about it. You can arrange your life in the order you want but without ‘feeling’ your ‘movement’ in Divine order through sharing Divine love you won’t be able to reduce the experiences of division, discord and dissension that ‘appear’ to interfere with your progress.

Rejecting experiences that ‘add to’ the appearance of misalignment is beneficial, but resisting them leads to frustration, depression and anger. When you predominantly experience negative feelings you are ‘adding to’ your resistance of the experiences in your life. You will ‘feel’ better after releasing ‘resistant’ thoughts because you are dismissing the disallowing factors that ‘appear’ to be obstructive to your living in peace. The more you feel ‘relieved’ is the key indicator that you are letting go of resisting and embracing allowing.

Alignment with Divine order occurs when you stop resisting and start allowing it to affect natural order in a way that creates peace in your life. Your experience of peace means that you are in alignment and you are allowing that which is beneficial to all to be without any perception by you that you are controlling the outcome. When you believe that you are controlling anything is when your ego is resisting that which it perceives is against its power to effect self-survival.

Don’t fall into the ‘ego-trap’ of believing that you are so special. You are the life force experiencing the unfolding of the natural omniverse from the alignment of your experience of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love with Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Don’t expect a person who doesn't give a damn to ever become loyal to anyone else but themselves! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Don’t expect someone who loves themselves way more than others to ever realize on their own that the reason they don’t have what they want in life is because of the way they treat others. When they learn to give to others what they themselves want, then they will learn the secret to being fulfilled. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
