Tolerance is a state where your ego 'allows' the behavior of others even though it feels superior to others.

It is self elevating itself to Godhood and not loving others for whom they are. Being tolerant is not something to be proud of.

It is something to be healed of; it comes when you respect and love others just for whom and what they are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Spirituality Post Home page.


Tolerance is enduring something that you perceive as suffering; which is anything other than what you believe.

That is the key; the belief that what you know is more of the truth than what others know and you 'tolerate' what they believe. The truth is not just personal but universal.

Understanding and appreciating what everyone believes while knowing the truth of what you know and believe allows you to live in the reality of Oneness; that is in understanding and accepting, not tolerating, others' beliefs. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Just by virtue of the fact that we are here means that we have beaten the astronomical odds of not being created at all. We are super successful beings that have the existence of atoms within us that were created billions of years ago.

We physically embody the existence of ancient creations within our beings right now; creations that have survived and thrived over billions of years. Knowing this, then why would we lament over anything that we perceive is ‘happening’ to us right now?

Why? Because we truly don’t know our inner divinity and physical longevity. We have come a long way to be here right now and we are here for a Divine purpose; to express the higher order of the omniverse here and now.

It doesn’t matter where we have been; it doesn’t matter where we are now; what matters is that we take what we have been given and create a higher order of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

We are here to expand the omniverse into becoming what it was created to be; the expression of Divine love eternally. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only in an awareness of relativity is found the perception of evil.

When one embraces Oneness with spirit, the perception of evil is displaced with the true feeling of Divine love.

In Divine love we respect all of creation without binding it to the beliefs we hold as being true due to our relative perceptions. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

God has already given you what you need, want, desire and expect to happen in your life. Why don’t you just get off of yourself and just trust in the Divine? Are you too concerned about what others might say?

Well, what they say doesn’t matter! Are you too afraid of what might happen? Well, what might happen will be greater than what you have ever imagined! Are you afraid of what you might have to do when the abundant blessings of the omniverse rain down on you?

Well, sing and dance in the rain for it is your Divine gift! Be whom and what you were created to be and ALL else will come to you now and evermore! Stop making excuses! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Stop fighting, battling and 'owning' your infirmities! The more you resist them the more they will persist! Love them with an ‘awareness’ as to ‘what’ has been created within you and ‘why’ they exist; then ‘allow’ the Divine to heal you.

The attention to any infirmity with resistance gives it life whereas allowing the healing to take place within you minimizes and removes the presence of its 'own' life continuing.

Actively participate in your healing by not resisting the presence of infirmities but in allowing your healing to take place.

Inner peace and allowance brings Divine healing because you stop trying to control, dominate and manipulate that which you don’t understand.

You accept, allow and let go of what is in order to become healthy again. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The most revealing phrase in any language is “Trust me.’ And why is that? Is it because it reveals the desire for someone to honestly guide you or is it that they are ultimately trying to control, dominate and manipulate your behaviors by influencing your decision-making processes? What is it that makes one desire for them to be trusted by others? Is it the Divine guiding you or your ego subtly nudging you into a position of benefitting itself? You decide.

The Spirit of God is the nurturing, life-giving and edifying presence that projects everything that we sense and experience in life. We are the ones who sense and experience the reflections of Divine presence and use it to benefit us in some way. It is we who color existence with our beliefs whether they are accurate or erroneous.
When we allow our ego’s yearnings to guide our decisions we are thinking about what benefits our self-survival at all costs. When we allow the Divine desires in our hearts to guide our decisions we are thinking about what benefits ‘everyone’ and NOT just ourselves. Is it really as simple as that? Again, you decide.

Why? Because I’m not going to say for you to ‘trust me’ and my analysis of this but I will say to trust the Spirit of God. Remember, trust never comes from someone requesting it; it comes from an inner knowing that the Divine is guiding, protecting and loving you as well as everyone else.

What is trust, anyway? It is the reliance on the integrity, strength or ability of someone or something. It is the confidence that your expectation of something favorable to you will come from the source of your trust and be granted to you based on you being you. Trust comes from faith in something that is unseen that benefits what is seen. Complete trust in the Divine means that you don’t second guess, doubt, worry or fear how things will unfold. You simply allow them to unfold in Divine order for the greater good of everyone and NOT just you!

Trust is not earned; it is allowed! The next time someone says, “Trust me”, you will know it is NOT coming from the Spirit of God but from the ego’s yearnings for control, domination and manipulation. The Divine never asks to be trusted; but humankind always does. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Why do we sometimes feel that we aren’t worthy of being blessed by the Divine? Why is it that we emotionally back ourselves into a corner to force ourselves to make a choice to only rely on ourselves? Is it because we fear that the Divine might want us to do something other than what we have our hearts set on? Or is it that we want to be in control to justify our own feelings of accomplishment and power?

Whatever it may be, our egos continually create scenarios for us to react to emotionally to be in control over our lives. We create emotional ‘buttons’ that we put out in front of us daring others to push them to convince ourselves to listen to the yearnings of our egos. It is a fool’s game that we have to deal with every day of our lives.

If we choose to emotionally react to what we believe is happening to us, the self-survival mechanism of our ego comes into play. We either run toward (fight) or run away from (flight) that which we perceive as being threatening to our survival. If we choose to spiritually proact, we allow that which is to be and we don’t attach any emotional baggage to it. We simply accept it occurrence and move on.

But what are the advantages to this, you may ask? It is when we become too emotionally involved in our experiences in life is when we become distracted from unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order. We get sidetracked by what we ‘believe’ is important and substantial to our existence instead of what we ‘know’ is important. Living for the mutual fulfillment of all means that we forego being reactive emotionally in favor of being proactive spiritually; in essence, we get rid of what we don’t need in favor of what we do need. However, we still need to feel worthy of receiving it!

If we choose to allow the Spirit of God to guide us we stop emotionally reacting to our ego’s yearnings and we proact from the Spirit of God sharing Divine love with everyone. We allow the Divine to steer the course and we sublimate our egos to being the co-pilot or passenger.

When we actively do this we align ourselves with Divine order in order to fulfill our Divine purpose. We live from the Divine love that we are and not from the selfishness of our egos. We know that we are divine beings that are worthy of living in perfection! Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


It Is Up To You And Me. We can only understand what we sense from our experiences by what we allow ourselves to comprehend. Awareness of our environment begins and ends with what we ‘feel’ we need to understand. Our focus on our experiences in the perceived dualistic reality is filtered through our emotional needs, wants, desires and expectations and we react with these filters to what we perceive is beneficial or detrimental to our existence.

Reality is ‘colored’ by our emotions to be favorable to our existence. Only when we allow the guidance from the still small voice of the Divine to move us ‘favorably’ in Divine order will we truly be on the path to fulfilling our Divine purposes. The Divine Infinite Spirit Creator loves us and has created us to be fulfilled and not frustrated. It is our perceptions that taint reality to perceive suffering instead of joy.

Where any one of us suffers, it is our duty to bless them with Divine love and help them to meet their needs, wants, desires and expectations for them to know in their hearts just how much the Divine loves them. When others learn that the Divine is always there guiding them their lives will turn around; they just need to learn how to ask, how to listen and how to serve the collective of humanity.

We are stewards of the earth and it is our responsibility to help others understand just what peace, understanding, joy and Divine love truly are. Give unto others what you have been so richly blessed with in your life and you will be a true co-creator with the Divine. It is up to you and me. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you come to the realization that you have forgotten more in your life than you have learned you will finally know that the key to living in Divine love is letting go of what you know in order to bask in the Divine wisdom of Oneness.

When you accept the fact that you are a channel of Divine love expressing itself every moment, you come to know that wisdom isn’t claiming wisdom, but living in it. Accept everything and allow Divine guidance by expecting the complete fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Reject everything that doesn’t edify your being and resist nothing. The more you resist what you perceive is hindering your progress the more it will hinder your progress.

Stop fighting what you don’t understand and allow Divine love to set the tone for your life by simply letting go of what you believe what you think you ‘know’.

The key to Oneness with the Divine is getting out of your way and simply allowing Divine love to blossom the Divine rose that is YOU! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The ego has a job to do and a job not to do; it is there for self-survival but not to lead based on its yearnings for recognition, power and the implementation of that perceived power.

It is to be balanced with the wisdom of the spirit but never to be in command of that spirit; for in relinquishing the guidance of Divine wisdom to the command of the ego is where fighting, derision and negativity are borne.

My way or the highway reveals just who is in command. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Throughout our combined cultures the one thread of experience we all share is that we are storytellers. We talk of triumph over tragedy, victory over suffering or fulfillment over loss. We weave these stories to inspire ourselves and others to keep moving forward.

During the discourse of these stories we naturally embellish key points to emphasize the points we are trying to make so that the message is well received and understood. It is human nature to tell a good story and it having a memorable effect on the listener or reader. Some of us love to tell stories to influence others while others don’t relay their stories at all. They hide them either because they fear being judged by others or that they have yet to see the conclusion of their perceived ‘story’.

What is your story? Is it a story of your overcoming a perceived problem or situation? Is it a story of your rebirth into a new way of thinking? Is it a quest for something you have desired your whole life? Could it be your perceived journey through life and a return to an understanding you had wondered about in childhood? Is it a rags to riches or a riches to rags story? Overall, is it a tragedy, comedy or ongoing drama? Ultimately, it is what you have made the story based on what you perceive its value to be. You are the one who ‘brands’ your life by the stories you tell about it. You will subconsciously conform events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behaviors of yourself and perceived behaviors of others to your ‘story’ in order to validate its existence.

In the article, “7 Basic Types of Stories: Which One Is Your Brand Telling? Creatives explore humans' archetypal plots By Tim Nudd”, Mr. Nudd describes the ‘types’ of stories that we use to ‘brand’ ourselves or reveal what our brand is telling. We, as humans, operate from archetypal stories whether culturally based or creatively ‘told’ about the courses of our lives. Again, what is your story? Is it one that has a ‘happy’ ending or is it one that ends in tragedy? Yeshua said quite clearly, “Be therefore perfect, just as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)). Did he say to be imperfect? He gave us the role model of our behaviors by referring us to the Divine guidance we need to unfold our individual stories into fulfillment, joy and the sharing of Divine love. If we truly believe that the Divine is ‘perfect’, then why don’t we believe that simply by listening to Divine guidance we too can be perfect?

To live in perfection doesn’t mean that we don’t make mistakes as our stories unfold; it means that we operate from perfection by regularly praying (asking the Divine for guidance), meditating (listening to Divine guidance) and serving (sharing Divine love with all) all of existence. These practices working together are the effective ‘communication’ with the Divine where we understand our Divine purposes and how they will unfold in Divine order.

Tell your story from a Divine perspective; one where we marvel at the expressions of peace, understanding and joy of the harmony of living in Divine love. Be the storyteller that moves others to realize their Divine purposes and shows them how to ‘allow’ them to unfold in Divine order. Your story is your ‘brand’ and it reveals just how much you have effectively communicated with the Divine. Make it a story of peace, understanding, joy and the complete expression of Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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


Where is your focus? Is it scattered upon doing things you perceive you must do in order to be whom and what you already are? When you take a magnifying glass and put it at just the right height above a piece of paper on a sunny day the paper will catch on fire. This is because the rays of the Sun are focused upon where you desire them to be in order to ignite the paper. When the rays are focused, they cannot be unfocused unless you are distracted and move the magnifying glass. You, in essence, are offering a vibration of concentrated energy that converts the molecules in the thin piece of paper to chemically ignite and burn.

This will NOT happen until the rays are consistently focused on the spot of ignition. Much in the same way, when we imagine the end results of our desires we are focusing energies of thought upon a point of omniversal ignition, where our desires are made manifest. When life interrupts your focus by delivering distractions of tension in relationships, money problems and health issues, you need to realize that these are distractions from your focus. You need to go to your inner place of ‘feeling’ the joy of the end result of manifesting your desires.

Don’t worry about how they are going to happen; simply let go of the tension of distraction and feel the joy of knowing the best will unfold for you. Use your mind to create images of the complete manifestation of your Divine desires and use your heart to feel the joy of that manifestation. Don’t allow the events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of others distract you from your focus. Remember the successes in your life and feel that joy you had with those successes. See as many details in your reverie as you possible can and know that you had accomplished what you set out to do and that what is happening right now isn’t any different.

Whatever you perceive is blocking your joy from experiencing the complete manifestation never, never, resist it or fight it in any way. These actions will guarantee that everything that you don’t want to have happen will continue to happen until you let the perception go of ‘fighting’ it and allow the deep inner feelings of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love to focus your mind and heart on igniting your Divine purpose and experiencing it unfolding in Divine order. Whatever you seek always imagine ‘more’ than what you expect by allowing the joy of experiencing it to project through your entire being.

You are the magnifying glass of the omniversal energies that are ever-present and it is YOU who has the power to ignore distraction and keep a steady hand and focus. When you feel overwhelmed ALWAYS go within and feel the joy of being fulfilled and the perceptions of your experiences will melt away into oblivion. They are there for you to guide them as the Divine is guiding you. Don’t allow anything other than expressing yourself with Divine love to take precedent in your life. If you do, you will go through your entire life being distracted from your focus and never realizing your Divine desires.

Those desires were planted in your heart to be created and when you trust the Divine, feel the joy of Divine manifestation and focus your efforts, nothing, that means nothing, can ever stop the paper of reality from bursting into flames! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When what you believe is more important than lending a hand, feeding the hungry or easing someone’s pain, then what you believe is NOT aligned with Divine love; no matter how much you believe it is. Love is not love unless it is shared. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only when you are willing to let go of everything you believe will you truly come to know the Divine. Beliefs are repeated thoughts you accept as true and knowing is the deepest spiritual feeling of Divine love. Which do you choose? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Doing nothing and allowing hate to proliferate makes you complicit in its unwarranted growth and expansion. If you feel and do nothing in the face of hatred then it reveals you are fearful of the truth of everyone’s right to live in Divine love. Be active in stopping those who spread hatred of anyone and you will free your heart to live in Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

LOVE is the only power that can heal the world; it's the only weapon of mass construction. ~Bent Kim Lundberg

Hitchen’s Razor:“What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.” ~Christopher Hitchens

In regard to this I would like to say, “What can be asserted without justification can be dismissed without justification.” Stop justifying what others tell you is going on to reinforce any and all beliefs that you are not worthy of being fulfilled. Those beliefs are simply ludicrous at best. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Living everyday in complete faith and trust in the Divine is like building a muscle; unless you repeatedly and consistently exercise it you won’t develop it into the strength of your Divine purpose. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Arrogance is from the ego, truth is from the spirit. When someone mistakes your guidance from the spirit as hubris or arrogance, it reveals just what they are trying to hide. Recognition of the truth supersedes any perception of arrogance. When it is mistaken as such, it is the ego that is recognizing it and resisting it, not the Spirit of God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The term spiritual growth is an oxymoron. ~Jeff Belyea

Is ego-fading better? ~Carina Kingsbury

It is more of your awareness growing into the realization that you are a spiritual being. ~Dean A. Banks

That which you already are appears distant and unattainable because you are believing in separation instead of trusting in Oneness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

People always call me asking me to pray for them. Pray for them? I'll pray for them. But I'll warn you. Don't cut me off on the freeway. Do you know what I do when someone cuts me off on the freeway? I send them straight to hell! ~Dr. Gene Scott

Knowing Divine love is living completely from the spirit. We do that every day whether we realize it or not. It is our perceptions of separation that create the thoughts and feelings of belief instead of pure knowingness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Divine never makes mistakes; we do, when we allow our egos to play God and guide us into separation and away from Oneness. Listen to the truth and discharge any and all beliefs of separation and we will then realize that we are perfect in the Divine and the Divine is perfect in us. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Always remember not to forget just who you are, what you are, where you came from, how you got here, when you got here and why you are here.

If you don’t know the answers to these questions you have forgotten that the Divine is deep within you each and every moment of your life patiently waiting for you to recognize your inner divinity.

What appears without is a result of what comes from within. Allow Divine love to flow from your being and be blessed with the divinity that is yours right now.

Stop, look within and listen to you divine heart! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

Custom Fine Art by F.R. Rittenhouse


Is your ego stacking the deck in your favor? Do you repeatedly look to benefitting yourself at every turn in order to justify your existence? Are you allowing others to take advantage of those who don’t know any better or are oblivious to obvious manipulation of their opinions? If so, then you are NOT living from the Spirit of God. Living in the spirit means that share Divine love with all by being truthful, encouraging them to become the best that they can be and by serving humankind with Divine love.

If you continually steer events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and the behavior of others to justify your behaviors then you are fooling and deluding yourself with your blind ego. You are ignoring the rights of others to experience their own edification in spirit by taking the credit for their well-being. True teachers of spirituality point the way for others to traverse but NEVER take credit for their pointing; they know it is the spirit within that is doing the pointing and NOT their ego.

The spirit moves through each and every one of us in a unique way that defines whom and what we are. Realizations are different but are from the same source. It is meant to be that way for diversity to realize itself in unity. If our egos take credit for what the spirit is guiding us to do we are not being honest with ourselves AND others! We are thinking more of ‘me’ than ‘we’. Be careful and watchful of the ego’s quest for self-recognition. It is subtle and illusory.

Always allow the spirit to flow Divine love from your being and give credit to the Spirit of God. That spirit IS the source of all Divine love. Honor and respect that by giving credit where credit is due. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

This is an omniverse of multilevel causes and effects. Energies that are unseen affect things that are seen and vice versa. We are taught throughout our lives that we need to ‘earn’ respect. We need to behave in certain ways to demonstrate just how ‘righteous’ we are; it is the behaviors that express our supposed intent. However, in a closed system of rewards and punishment, we are caught up in an illusion of supposed opposites.

We live within the extremes of the perceived dualistic reality and express our behaviors originating with our intent. If our intent is based on ‘earning’, we are caught up in the concepts of reward and punishment and stuck on the never ending wheel of the perceived dualistic reality. In order to truly experience inner fulfillment and the outer manifestation that massages our true ‘intent’, we need to realize that our actions have absolutely NOTHING to do with our experiences of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

Our actions are the ‘result’ of the ‘tone’ or vibration that we project. If we project control, domination and manipulation, we will attain the results of those projections. We might ‘get’ what we want for a season, but we will continually have challenges in maintaining what we have gotten. If we project allowance, surrender and innocence, we will attain the results of those projections as well. We will align ourselves with the flow of Divine order and experience and learn to trust the Divine completely.

We have all learned it is honorable, respectable and acceptable to ‘earn’ instead of learning how to simply trust in the Divine. What we learn contributes to our belief system and repeated thoughts that are accepted as true become our beliefs. We need to remove ourselves from the dualistic concept of ‘earning’ and replace that concept with an understanding of Divine allowance. Make the decision to experience what you know you desire in your heart and allow it to happen. Cut off any other perceived possibilities that lead to worry and focus on allowing the Divine to manifest your destiny. Any perception of having to struggle comes from an acceptance of unworthiness.

We are all worthy of the best in life because we are children of the Most High and NOT worthless slugs that crawled out of primeval slime. We are dynamic co-creators of the Divine endowed with powers of divinity to ‘rearrange’ the energies and matter present in this omniverse to fulfill our Divine purposes in Divine order. Everything you ever needed, wanted, desired and expected to happen is right here, right now. All we have to do is identify our destiny with what we experience and feel the joy of experiencing the fulfillment of what we desire.

Our brains project one-tenth of a second into the future what we ‘perceive’ will happen and align our bodies to anticipate what will happen as a matter of course. We are creatures who automatically create based on what we believe will happen. Why not create based on what we ‘know’ will happen by trusting completely in the Divine to manifest our destiny? When we choose to live by our beliefs instead of what we know, we are holding ourselves back with our own thoughts and feelings from experiencing our own divinity and powers of co-creation. How we emotionally and physically react to our experiences reveals the thoughts we have held as true in our minds and hearts.

How we mentally and spiritually proact reveals this as well. Life is an experience that we should enjoy and not regret. Feel the beauty and smell the roses; don’t perceive life as a struggle but a roller coaster ride! Anticipate the best and stop worrying about what you think ‘might’ happen. Trust in the Divine with your heart and KNOW what will happen! Feel good about your life and your experiences no matter how they make you feel and you will transcend the hamster wheel of ‘earning’ your way. Stop earning and start allowing. It is what makes you free, honorable and respectable with your intent and what guides your behaviors to express that intent consistently. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Religion is from the Latin word ‘religio’ which means a binding together of people with common beliefs. Not ‘knowings’, but beliefs. If you believe something you have repeatedly thought about it and it feels right to you.

You accept it as true until something challenges that belief and it crumbles to the ground because it didn’t have a solid foundation.

Knowing the Divine doesn’t require any beliefs. It is an inner well spring of peace, understanding, joy and the embodiment of Divine love.

Its foundation is strong and secure and will withstand ANY challenge. To truly know the Divine it is to trust the Divine implicitly; never doubting, worrying or fearing ANYTHING because you completely trust in the Divine.

Beliefs are transitory where knowing is eternal! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Why is it that when someone says, “I’ll try”, you get the feeling that they won’t? Is it because trying is lying or is it that they are just saying what you want to hear? Knowing the truth requires discerning what someone says and feeling their projected emotion behind it. If what they say conflicts with what you feel from what they say then you know they are ‘trying’ to convince you to ‘believe’ what they say and NOT know the truth.

When we truly feel joy from what someone says AFTER they say it, then we might believe what they are saying is true. However, to know what they are saying is true or not requires listening to Divine guidance and following it over what you think and feel they have said.

Trust in the truth revealed by the Divine and no matter what anyone says or does you will know the truth. Too simple? The truth is always simple; it is only the ‘revealers’ of the truth that make it complicated. Trust, don’t believe. Tell the truth and never ‘try’.

Trying is an excuse you tell others to make them feel assured you will make the attempt when in fact you have no desire to follow through. When someone says they will do something, believe it if you want. When they say they will try, don’t believe it. Knowing the difference and listening to Divine guidance will make the truth readily apparent.

The truth never has to be disguised or couched in attractive accoutrements. It stands freely on its own. It is when humans decorate it with rituals and observances, pomp and circumstance that it becomes veiled in the window dressing of flagrant emotionalism. The Source of truth is the Spirit of God and it is always on point and completely accurate. It is NEVER colored with beliefs, religious connotations or philosophical debates. It cuts like a knife straight to the heart!

We all get caught up in emotional reactions; the trick is to NOT allow them to taint the revelation of the pure unadulterated truth. It is when we get distracted by the form and ignore the substance that we go awry. Staying on point means that we follow the inner guidance of the Divine more than our emotional take on reality. It means that we trust in the Divine completely by not being concerned about how things unfold. Stop trying and start living! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


People who believe that they are in control of others and are actively pulling the strings of those who succumb to their will, will eventually have a rue awakening coming. The fact is that they are afraid of the people they think that they are controlling. They should be afraid. They should be very afraid.

Why? Because when those people they think they are controlling come to the realization that they are being controlled they will lash out with such fervor that they will bring down the one who thinks they are in control.

They will never stop until the controller pays for their crimes against humanity because the controller was attempting to steal the truth, lie to others about it and act like the devil himself.

When the controller is brought down, then, and only then, will they realize that their ego is not all that and that they will have to pay for their crimes. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


You will never know what you are missing until you stop believing, stop trying and simply allow. Divine love will flow freely; unfettered by your beliefs.

Your Divine purpose will unfold perfectly in Divine order. You will live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

All of this comes automatically when you stop believing, stop trying and simply allow. What are you waiting for? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When aberrance is expressed and living beings are hurt, it is time to stand up to it. If you do not, you are complicit in its manifestation.

If you do nothing, you are in effect resisting what you KNOW is right and allowing what you KNOW is wrong.

Your actions are based on fear and not based on faith in the Divine to create peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. If you truly trust in the Divine you will stand up for what is right and say no to what is wrong.

Standing up doesn’t necessarily mean that you put yourself in the line of fire, but you work toward the manifestation of justice based on mutual truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Whatever we can imagine and feel the joy of the fulfillment of that imagination, we can create; we just need to see it in our minds, feel it in our hearts and manifest it with our beings.

Trusting in the Divine and the omniversal laws by expecting the manifestation of our Divine desires takes our intended projections and responds to them with fulfilling reflections.

Be ye therefore perfect by imagining your Divine reality and feeling the joy of fulfilling that reality! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Does God exist without religion? God is beyond what religion claims and what it does with those claims. Religion is a binding together of people with similar beliefs (Latin: religio); not a binding together of people with a similar ‘knowing’. The social and personal beliefs of religious constituents are fostered in a pool of emotional security in order to validate exactly what they believe.

God exists as the Divine Infinite Spirit Creator that projects Divine love and unfolds the Divine purpose of the omniverse in Divine order. Our beliefs are reflections of the projection of Divine love and will accurately represent Divine love based on the clarity of our beliefs; just as a clean mirror reflects most of the light projected upon it.

If the mirror is dirty and has a film of emotional contamination, so to speak, it will absorb some of the light for its own edification and significantly block the entire picture of Divine love. Focusing on mindful prayer, heartful meditation and soulful service cleans the mirror and removes the blockages to transmitting Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Are you having difficulty in being who you know you are? Do you think in your mind almost every moment of your inner passion? Do you feel your juices running when you envision your dream in your mind and feel the joy of it in your heart? Every thought that you think creates a correspondent energy expression that projects into your environment. It creates a polarization that literally focuses your attention on ‘like’ or similar things. Have you ever bought a car and then noticed how many you see now that you own one? The same amount of cars have always been there and now that you own one your attention is fine tuned to recognize that type of car. This is the basis for the Law of Attraction.

You ‘attract’, or should we say recognize, that which your attention is focused upon. The amount of energy that our brains generate is very weak, however, the thoughts that it maintains are like an electrical relay on the ‘unseen’ dark matter and dark energies ever-present in the omniverse. An electrical relay is a device that uses a smaller and ‘safer’ voltage to switch a higher and more dangerous voltage. But how do these smaller biologically generated ‘voltages’ actually ‘flip’ these virtual relays? A voltage is describes as an ‘electromotive force’. An EMF (Electromotive Force) is defined as “the energy available for conversion from nonelectric to electric form, or vice versa, per unit of charge passing through the source of the energy; the potential difference between the terminals of a source of electrical energy: expressed in volts” [dictionary.com].

Now, our brains are defined as organs; organs are biological groupings of tissues that aggregate to perform specific bodily functions. In essence, the non-electric tissues generate electrical signals that communicate throughout our bodies. These functions are a result of a ‘difference in potential’ between positive and less positive opposites. The discharge of energy occurs ‘through’ the source of the energy which initiates the thoughts in our brains. The amount of energy being discharged is measured in volts; the higher the voltage, the more ‘potential’ of energy being discharged. The electrical ‘current’ is the actual energy that traverses the nerves in our bodies and carries the information that is repeatedly sent from our brains to our bodies and vice versa. As our brains develop, new neural pathways are generated due to repeated firings that create pleasurable experiences for us.

Also, we come to recognize ‘unpleasurable’ experiences and subconsciously forge new neural pathways to ‘avoid’ any perception of pain. We, in essence, by our harboring repeated thoughts that become beliefs, rewire our brains to ‘broadcast’ what we ‘believe’ we are. But, if the voltage is too low, how does it trip the virtual omniversal relay? By our emotions! The way we ‘feel’ about our experiences indicates whether we are either resisting our experiences or allowing them. If we feel bad about something, we are initializing the thoughts that we are experiencing to project them onto the omniversal stage which in turn reflects them right back to us. We then experience what is sometimes termed a ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’. If we feel good about something, we are in turn, doing the same thing. Knowing this, why would anyone in their right mind undo their own progress in life? Why would you focus on doubting, worrying and fearing when you KNOW that is what you are creating in your life? Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?

We were created with a natural state of well-being. Our thoughts about that natural state and the subsequent feelings we have underlying those thoughts are what ‘rearrange’ the energies of well-being to create that which we hold as true. We are a product of our own ‘re-creation’ based on our thoughts and feelings. “And what of illness”, you may say? If your thoughts and feelings disallow the normal and natural flow of well-being then the result is infirmity. “What about my financial situation”, you may ask as well. If your thoughts and feelings disallow the normal and natural flow of omniversal abundance then the result is poverty. Sound too simple? Well, perhaps it does but life goes where energy flows, not where energy is restricted, bottlenecked or damned up!

The amazing thing about ‘how things work’ is that at any given moment in time you can ‘change’ the flow of energy from your thoughts and feelings to ‘allow’ what you have heretofore ‘resisted’! You are in command of what you think when you recognize how you are feeling and adjust your thoughts to create feelings of fulfillment instead of disappointment. This simple recognition and respondent ‘altering’ of harboring negative non-productive thoughts move you toward an alignment with your natural state of well-being and move you away from the unnatural states of infirmity, poverty and disappointment. This state of ‘vibrational’ harmony polarizes you with positive energy that ‘attracts’ like states to occur.

Why? Because like the car you just bought you now begin to recognize it everywhere in your environment, whereas when it wasn’t predominantly in your consciousness you did not recognize it before. There is only energy and matter present in the omniverse that springs forth from the Divine state of stillness, silence and total peace. How we observe, think and feel about these energies and matter determines our experiences with them; whether we perceive them as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ to our beings. Accepting things as they are and appreciating them ‘as they are’ is the beginning to being truthful with yourself AND others. This, in turn, creates a state of ‘allowance’ within you that promotes correspondent states of peace, understanding, joy and Divine love.

This becomes your attractive ‘like’ factor that brings similar experiences into your existence. Rejecting things as they are and being too critical about their existence is NOT living in reality. This, in turn, creates a state of ‘resistance’ within you that promotes correspondent states of disharmony, intolerance, unhappiness and the state of not knowing Divine love. This becomes your attractive ‘like’ factor that brings similar experiences into your existence. We are ALWAYS connected to our Divine source and NOTHING can ever separate us from that connection except when we think and feel that we are separated!

Our thoughts and feelings are our direct indicators of whether we are allowing or resisting our natural connection to our source to experience health, wealth, prosperity and abundance or conversely, infirmity, poverty, ongoing loss and dearth. Control your thoughts and feelings by allowing the natural states of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance to flow through you unfettered by your observations and conclusions in what you have experienced. As with the television, if you don’t like what you are watching, just change the channel! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Have you ever felt like your back was against the wall? Did you feel that you were being attacked from all angles and that you couldn’t see a way out? Is this just what you were feeling or was it just your perception of reality? Whatever it was you may now need to develop a strategy of allowance of the natural laws of the omniverse being affected by Divine order. But, how do I do this, you may ask? Actually, it is quite simple. Always remember that the one thing that you overlooked or dismissed as being inconsequential is the one thing that will come back to haunt you or, as the saying goes, ‘bite you in the ass’.

Paying attention to the subtleties and micro-movements of reality can be quite beneficial if you learn where to look. It is not about overcoming obstacles; overcoming is fighting with your ego in command. It is all about allowing the forces of the natural world to perform the way they always do guided by your awareness of how Divine order works.

For example, any bowler worth their salt knows that the most difficult shot to take is a 7/10 split. For all of you ‘non-bowlers’ out there, a 7/10 split is where to last two pins left on the lane are the farthest away from you and the farthest pins apart at the same time. The only way to knock down these pins together is to hit one at just the right spot to make it hit the other in one shot. It requires that the bowler make the ball ride the edge of the gutter at the last possible moment in such perfect balance as to not fall into the gutter for it to hit the outside of the pin.

This is the angle of attack for your strategy. Sometimes riding on the edge or dangling on the precipice is necessary to view your choices and possibilities of accomplishing your Divine desires. Next, in order to inflict the forces of nature in the proper proportion, you must put a spin on the ball in such a way as to ‘direct’ its course of action in a perceived direction. If it is the 7 pin you must use a centripetal, or turning in spin, in order to drive the pin in the direction of the 10 pin to knock it over with centrifugal, or turning out spin, force. The opposite occurs when you aim for the 10 pin. You must use centrifugal force (turning out spin) to hit the pin on its side to drive it with centripetal force (turning in spin) toward the 7 pin.

In the game of pool it’s called using ‘English’ on the ball. In other words, knowing how the forces of nature work ‘allows’ you to anticipate where objects move and how they will behave. There are other factors, however. In sound (mechanical) waves there are varying shapes of the wave that are displayed in time which reveal how much force was applied and how that force dissipates over time. It is called the envelope of the wave or the ADSR; Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release. The attack shows how fast over time the energy accelerates to its peak; the decay shows how much it diminishes after attaining its peak; the sustain shows how long it remains at a constant energy level and the release shows how much it decelerates to its original position over time.

Now, the bowler has to choose what actions to take in order to make the shot. The bowler has to select the ball to be comfortable in weight and hand size, choose the right shoes to slide perfectly on the lane, what angle to approach throwing the ball and exactly what to do to follow through on releasing the ball. The bowler must deliver the right amount of energy to the ball, transfer that energy smoothly to ball and sustain the power after the ball is released. On top of that, the bowler must aim the ball to arrive at the gutter just at the last moment while releasing it with the proper ‘spin’ in order to ‘transfer’ the energy precisely at the right moment to knock down both pins in one shot.

It takes focus, patience, determination and ‘seeing the end result’ in your mind. Have you ever noticed that the best outside shooters in basketball shoot for the basket and turn away running ‘knowing’ that the ball is going in? It has already gone through the basket in their minds. It is the same for bowlers. They ‘know’ that if they make the right approach, transfer their energy properly and follow through properly they will make the shot.

The Divine has blessed us with the talents, skills and abilities to perform perfectly in unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order. We need to discover and deliver a strategy of implementation in order to unfold our Divine purposes. We know this by knowing that Divine order affects the flow of natural order when we plan effectively, practice our implementation and trust completely in the Divine.

Never leave anything to random chance; that is a fool’s game. Everything in this omniverse operates as a precision clock that converts chaos into order, back to chaos and again back to order ad infinitum. The only way to get off of the hamster wheel of perception is to know there is more to your life than you are sensing, develop faith in what you don’t sense, implement effective strategies and completely trust in the Divine.

It is better to know where you are going than to wander aimlessly ‘thinking’ that you are ‘knowing’ where you are going, when in fact you don’t. Go for that 7/10 split; it is there to challenge you to trust completely in the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


On the day you realize that you were created from love, exist in love and are love, is the day that you understand and respect the Divine within.

You are the co-creator of the expression of Divine love and when you focus your time and energy on expressing the yearnings and demands of your ego in favor of expressing Divine love, you are not living in Divine truth.

Be that which you were created to be; the expression of Divine love through completely trusting in the Divine to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


If the door to wisdom is knowing yourself, then which self are you knowing? The lower ego self or the higher Divine SELF? When you ‘know’ that your ego operates on what you accept as true and believe, you have the awareness that your higher SELF operates on what it KNOWS.

You can differentiate between what you believe is happening and what you KNOW is happening. Going within everyday and dipping in the well of inner divinity brings ‘knowing’ into your existence and teaches you that ‘believing’ is not always the truth of reality.

Know that which you are and believe not all that your senses reveal; for it is in what you ‘know’ that becomes reality and in what you ‘believe’ that becomes your perception of reality. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
