To make a statement that facts are not facts when they so obviously are is completely erroneous.

The facts are that if you don't have a verifiable and justifiable reason to dislike someone it is coming from your egotistical emotional response promulgated by your inherent belief system which is PROBABLY based on RACISM (or generally, separatism).

You have yet to address the origin of your beliefs and therefore, have reinforced the argument that it is instead of countering it.

Be aware of what you say before you say it because it reveals your inner beliefs and convictions as well as your state of mind. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I have a solution for all of the political debates. Let’s draft a law that ALL politicians have to cite their references when making statements and speeches. If their ‘facts’ are not verifiable and tr

uthful, they would be subject to a fine, jail time and suspension from their current campaign.

Do you think we could NOW learn the truth? Also, if they are caught taking monies from corporate donors they would be subject to fines, jail time and being removed from the ballot.

Do you think that then they would truly represent us instead of corporate interests? Only when we adopt stringent rules and hard consequences will we even have any hope of hearing the truth out of the mouths of professional prevaricators.

Call your representatives and say ‘CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM NOW’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When someone cannot see the truth for what it is, then they ARE stupid. It is something they can simply rectify by becoming EDUCATED. It is a choice that ANYONE can make.

If they have a learning disability there are teachers available to help them. If they cannot afford it, then they can make arrangements or negotiate a rate of exchange in order to become educated.

There is ALWAYS a way when you forge ahead for the truth. Pathways open up as your awareness grows and expands. If you hold onto erroneous beliefs in light of the truth then you truly are STUPID!!!

Move toward knowledge and reason in order to embrace wisdom. Wisdom IS letting go of all erroneous beliefs based on supposition and acquired knowledge.

Be enlightened by making the steps to remove ignorance and stupidity. It is within your grasp and your power to act in edifying your being. No more excuses! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Every time we choose to love our neighbor and not fight them, we are contributing to the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

Every time we hear the cry of a hungry child and feed their hunger, we are contributing to the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

Every time we see the wicked commit atrocities and pray for our collective forgiveness, we are contributing to the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

We are all connected in spirit and in truth and when we truly realize this and live it every day we ARE living in the Kingdom of God here on Earth.

Share your inner smile from the love of the Spirit of God and contribute to peace on Earth each and every day of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” ~Yeshua (Mark 4:39 - King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.).

Our decision to arise and stifle the chaos of the outer world begins when we go within and absorb our inner peace.

The winds of change will cease and we will experience a great calm simply by uttering the words, “Peace, be still.” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The postulate 'you cannot prove a negative' is illogical and erroneous because it creates a negative situation based on a positive outcome.

When we live in the love of the Divine and share it with all we are not casting pearls before swines because we only accept what we feel we need and only give what we know we can.

Whether we cast pearls before swines or share love with those who understand the love of God, the Divine truly loves us all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When will you ever realize that you will only live in happiness when you realize your Divine purpose?

When will you get over what you or others think you must do to be whom and what you were created to be and simply just do it?

When will you love yourself enough to be true to your heart? Only when you let it all go and trust in the Divine completely. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The basic choice is to follow your head (ego) or follow your heart (The Spirit of God). Either way, your results will be a by-product of your choices.

If you are born into poverty your choices in the outer world are limited but are still the same.

Following the Spirit of God will lead you to fulfillment and following your ego will lead you to more of the same state you are currently in because you are not sharing Divine love with all but focusing on your own perceived state of existence. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The truth can be subjective and objective. When you consider the source of the truth you have to let down your walls of opinion and emotional convictions.

You have to be willing to learn the truth, feel the truth, speak the truth and live the truth as it is revealed to you.

If anyone is condescending and cavalier about what you have learned and shared in the spirit of truth remove yourself from their space, sphere of influence and continue to reveal what you have experienced.

You have a Divine purpose and when you realize that you can live it perfectly, associate only with those who respect your truth; whether it is subjective only to you or whether it is objective to everyone.

Send them love and be on your way. You have greater work to do and those who misunderstand and mock your motives are in fact not living their truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The only reason I went to college and seminary school was because I had to know what belief systems existed in order to find God.

After college and seminary school I realized that God was with me all along.

From then on I chose to honor my Divine connection; the same one each and every one of us has by manifesting my Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Learning to love whatever you judge in another is different from allowing it to affect you and the truth that you accept as real.

Rejecting what you judge is not worthy of being a part of your life is healthy for your growth and expansion.

If you discern that the behavior of another is a by-product of whom and what they are you can effectively judge whether or not that behavior is something you want to experience in your life or not.

Loving something that you feel is wrong for you is ultimately good, but that doesn't mean you that have to accept its ongoing presence in your life.

Choosing to have or not have certain behaviors in your life is a healthy response and it is being true to your understanding of what your Divine purpose is and how it is unfolding in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Anytime that you think that your needs are more important than another, you are not living from the Spirit of God.

Your ego is convincing you that it is right and that you are foolish not to listen to its worrisome advice.

When you trust the Divine to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order you come to the realization that your needs, wants, desires and expectation are met when you help others meet theirs.

Live from the spirit and live in peace, love, joy and understanding. It is your divine right. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


There is always someone jumping in some discussions with, "Oh, we shouldn't judge." Horse pattuey!

Judgment is a gift we have to decide whether or not someone or their actions are truthful or not.

I discern their behavior and I judge whether or not it is the truth. It is up to me to accept or reject it, allow it or resist it or call it out for what it is; truth or lies. If I don't, then I am complicit in its subsequent manifestations.

I choose to reveal the truth through diligent study, sharpened awareness and deep meditation. I will say what I have learned for it is my duty to be truthful, honest and forthright. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Drama is the experience you receive when you react passionately to something that you have learned in the past has either worked for you or against you.

You could have completely resolved the situation, circumstance, event, occurrence or the behavior of the person in your heart and mind and it keeps cropping up because you have not dealt with the perceived affect it has on your being; not because you haven't resolved whether it’s right or wrong for you.

Judgments exist to protect you from experiences you choose to either have or not have, not necessarily to embrace or reject the occurrence of perceived dramas in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Judgments are there to protect you from what you perceive as harmful experiences.

There are many unresolved issues in each of our pasts that have NOTHING to do with judgments; they are unresolved because we either chose to deal with them or not!

Ultimately, it is better to love another when their behavior is judged by you to be aberrant; however, that doesn't mean you have to accept its ongoing presence in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I am so thankful and grateful for the medium of communication we all know as Facebook.

I have come to know many people from all over this planet and have learned so much from my exchanges with them.

Most of all, we come to the realization that we are all one in spirit and that even though we might express it differently, the message is the same; love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Inner perceptions of situations, occurrences, circumstances, events and others' behavior generate beliefs both valid and erroneous in our subconscious minds that affect our subsequent actions in expressing our Divine purposes in Divine order. Until we make them conscious they appear outside of us as our fate and not the expression of Divine order AT THIS POINT IN TIME.

When we internalize the belief that what we experience is our 'fate', we are aligning ourselves with the manifestation of that perceived 'fate'. Choose to understand that you don't understand why things are happening all of the time and accept it as part of your growth and expansion into whom and what you were created to be.

In other words, trust in the Divine COMPLETELY and allow everything that you experience and perceive to be what it is; not your ‘fate’ but your current situation that is progressing into the manifestation of your Divine purpose in Divine order. Remove erroneous beliefs by making them conscious and examining them in the pure light of Divine reality. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Hatred and Racism are pre-existing conditions. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Labeling is a form of identifying the observed pattern of behavior someone displays in resolving situations and if it consistently yields results that are not favorable to themselves or others it is what it is; stupid. Too many people evade evaluation based on discerning the facts and call it 'judgment', when in fact, it is a choice to NOT to behave in that manner; because of their acquired wisdom in not behaving in a way that yields less than desirable results. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Maintaining a balance in your life requires hard decisions that break you out of your comfort zone sometimes too abruptly for your ego to handle it. Allow the Divine to gently guide you while rejecting what others think is right for you. Limit what others say is your correct path and embrace what you KNOW is right for you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

As you unfold your feelings you realize your peace within. Be one with that peace and it will be forever yours. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

God bless our teachers; for in them is our future hope of awareness, enlightenment and growth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

In the presence of the Spirit of God only love abounds. Trusting in the Divine by allowing your inner grace, peace and love to abound is the greatest gift you have been given and the greatest gift you can share. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

This country was created with laws to protect citizens from their government. Today, it is more from the corporations under the guise of government. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You can tell more about a person who doesn't reveal the lies being perpetrated by others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


You can judge something without it coming from you. It can simply be aberrant behavior that someone else displays that you have experienced in the past and have now chosen not to experience any longer.

This unresolved issues crap that has been parroted over and over again until it was accepted as how it is, is NOT how it is.

You choose what is right or wrong for you based on your life experience in dealing with events, circumstances, situations, occurrences and the behavior of others.

Your choices are based on your judgments of whether or not something is good for you or not.

It is not that you are projecting your unresolved issues onto others, but choosing not to repeat the experiences that brought you to have to judge something in the first place! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


To love you must be focused on what you feel love truly is; not what you think it is.

Sharing love is in the realm of the heart and judging whether or not something is right or wrong is your ego operating in the perceived dualistic reality to ensure its self-survival.

To believe that these worlds are separate and have no effect on one another is foolish at best.

You cannot rise above or sink below something you are inextricably tied to; however, you can understand how to operate within the soup in which you are immersed. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Whatever you allow, is in the now. Avoidance and healthy discernment are two different things.

Accepting and rejecting the things that you know are either advantageous or not to your growth and expansion is preferable to resisting them.

When you discern that someone's behavior is not what you want in your life it is not necessarily resisting it. If you emotionalize your rejection of it, it is resisting it.

If you simply dismiss it as not being advantageous to the mutual growth and expansion of all, you are not resisting it. Allow the peace, love and understanding of the Divine to bathe you with love and grace, and all else will be added.

If you deny this, then you will reap what you have sown immensely. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

“For just as The Father has The Life in himself, so he has given also to The Son to have The Life in himself. And he has given him authority to also do judgment because he is The Son of Man. Do not be astonished at this, for the hour is coming when all who are in the graves shall hear his voice, And they shall come out: those who have done good things, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil deeds, to the resurrection of judgment. I cannot do anything of my own will, but according to that which I have heard, I judge, and my judgment is just, for I am not seeking my will, but the will of him who has sent Me. ~Yeshua - John 5:26-30 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)”

The Divine Infinite Spirit possesses life completely. He has given it to each one of us to elevate our minds to the consciousness of the Christ where we KNOW we are One with the Divine. We do this by opening our hearts to the still small voice of God each and every day. We have the authority through the presence of Christ within each and every one of us to JUDGE because we need this trait to be aware of what is life debilitating and what is life giving and to align ourselves with what supports life.

We are in essence dead to the Christ within when we live our lives solely from our egos. We are in our own personal graves of consciousness when we don’t trust in God. When we hear the still small voice of the Divine guiding and directing us and obey Divine guidance, we are participating in the growth and expansion of all life.

When we seek to undermine, hurt or deprive our fellow humankind of any of God’s freely given blessings, we are living from our egos and will be judged by others for our aberrant behavior. Our egos cannot do anything to contribute to the growth and expansion of others; it is the Spirit of God within that shares love to all. Our egos witness our environments and judge; if they are guided by the Christ within, their judgment it JUST!!!

Why, because we are not seeking the will of the ego to protect us at all costs but the will of the Spirit of God that has allowed the presence of the Christ within us to shine forth into the world. The Christ within does NOT project judgment for the weakness of our egos within; it uses judgment to guide us through our lives to affect the world with growth and expansion for all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to judge another’s actions as unjust and speak the truth to all, then to sit back and do nothing while they take advantage of someone’s inability to defend themselves. If you truly know the love of God and want to share your light within, stand up and defend all who live for the truth while exposing those who incessantly lie for their own gain. Divine love is ‘expressed’ into the world as a result of it being ‘impressed’ into you in your inner sanctum. True love is sharing the blessings of the Divine; not hoarding it, hiding it or protecting it just for yourself and your pleasure. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


We all perceive through our limited senses and our brains chemically react to that perceived stimuli by creating images and copies of reality.

We are individuals inextricably tied to our environments and we exist within our perceptions of whom and what we are within those perceived environments.

Our reactive brains make it all work within a framework of the copies of reality making sense to us. We tailor our perceptions to fit our model of what exists, whether we realize it or not.

We mold our worlds to match our perceptions of what we 'feel' it is. That's why many don't actualize their individual potentials; because they either don't feel worthy of them or because they don't feel they are real. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


How do you know when you’ve attained spiritual wisdom? When you let go of everything you know, feel the presence of God within you and live each and every day completely trusting the Divine.

Anything else is the acquisition of things, knowledge and power; everything that eventually passes away into oblivion.

Wisdom is the only state of being that knows the Divine is where you are from, where you are now and where you are going. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


In finding a career, one needs to be educated; to be educated, one must have learned something in school to proceed in a direction and have access to affordable loans; to have access to affordable loans, one must have representatives that set legislation providing this; to have representation that does this, the representative must not be receiving alternate directions from corporate interests; to not have this occur, laws should be crafted to fine and jail representatives that take money from corporations; to have this, the Supreme Court shouldn't have allowed Citizens United to be constitutional...it goes on and on and on...we the people must be whom they serve, for they cannot serve two masters. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


After searching the 1000 some channels available on the Comcast Cable Network the other night, my original assessment was reconfirmed. Shows about ego, violence, news, contrived news, local used car salespersons, odd things, sports, religious programs, soaps, dramas, comedies, science fiction, UFO’s, ghost stories and sexually explicit music videos where breasts and hips were gyrating while the artists couldn’t even sing! I sincerely searched for quality programming and the closest I could find was Public Television and Mind TV.

With all of this visual horseshit available to the masses in the convenience of their living rooms, no wonder no one makes trips to the library anymore. The library; where it’s quiet; a place where you can THINK; a place where you are exposed to information from many different sources; a place where you have to use your brain in order to have the desire to stay. Every day we are bombarded with chaotic distractions from many external sources; from communications sources, interactions with people and maintaining a lifestyle.

The Internet has made us lazy in many ways. We can get information at the click of a mouse and because for the sake of convenience, we take this shortcut to save time. We sometimes forget that the Internet is one giant cesspool of information that is posted by many types of people who have their own agendas; who sometimes don’t thoroughly research what they post (we’ve all been guilty of this at one time or another) and people who are so emotional about what they are posting that they come off as angry and mean.

With all of this sensory input to sort out, it’s no wonder we sometimes get angry, frustrated and depressed. The only way to survive in a desert is to have a taste of water periodically; a dip in the well of sustenance. Make the time each and every day to take that ‘dip’. Go deep within in meditation and sip the nectar of Divine love. It will quench your thirst for peace, joy, understanding and love in the outer chaotic world of the ego and its vices. Be still and know God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Just when you feel tired and drained, someone says something to lift your spirit and remove the veil of exhaustion. You feel the joy of the moment, appreciate the appreciation and give thanks to God for the honor of serving.

It is in this moment that you know the love you have shared has blessed another and has been reflected back to you. It is all in the giving that your Divine purpose unfolds in Divine order.

It humbles you, honors you and blesses you with Divine love. Give from your heart every day to your neighbor and you will grow and expand your awareness into the fact that you are Divine love.

No matter how tired, drained or exhausted you are, you will always know this and express love to all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Expectation is the result of complete spirituality. When you know who you are, what you need to do, where you need to be, how you need to proceed, when you need to act and why you need to move in a direction, you are in tune with your spiritual guiding light.

If you don’t expect to manifest what you endeavor to co-create, you are not expressing Divine love into the omniverse and you will not see the fruition of your Divine desires. It’s as simple as that.

There is no spirituality in expecting nothing, being poor in resources and being timid in expressing yourself. Spirituality recognizes, embraces and consistently manifests health, wealth, prosperity and abundance.

If you believe anything other than this, you are choosing to live by your beliefs and not in the Oneness of the Spirit of God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

When the ego is in command, God allows you to undo all of the good that has been given to you until you learn that it is in the command of the spirit that love is truly expressed. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Teaching diversity does NOT take away an individual’s inner drive to succeed! This seems to be at the core of conservative Republican thinking! There IS unity in diversity.

Teaching self-reliance helps all of us be able to integrate our individual talents, skills and abilities into helping one another achieve our dreams. We are not islands!

We are an integrated whole of many different types of people who CAN and WILL work together to achieve peace on Earth. We must not just believe it; we must KNOW it! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


We are in the midst of a spiritual evolution. This revolution will not be fought with guns and weapons. It will not be fought at all. It will be a slow and methodical change that comes from the mind into the recognition and embracing of the spirit. No loud noises. No marches. No rhetoric. Just a peaceful transition from the ‘me’ into the ‘we’.

Many will ‘fight’ a battle against this and they will not recognize the fact that they will lose. They will keep fighting while the rest of us allow this world of peace to flourish. The old ways are dying out in favor of the new ways.

The resultant state of Peace on Earth and good will to all of humankind is readily apparent. How do we allow this to happen? Know the truth and stand up for it no matter what prevaricators say.

Contribute to the world in which you live by sharing your individual talents, skills and abilities with your neighbor. Make the time to shut off the world and commune daily with the Divine.

Place yourself in the flow of life and life will flow through you to actualize peace, joy and understanding. May the realization that God is always with you remain prominent in your mind.

This opens the doorway to a greater understanding of Divine love. Peace and blessings in manifesting the inevitable spiritual revolution. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

We all express life each and every day. Some of us express it abundantly while others retract into self-pity. It is a choice we make each and every day. We wake up every day and start our lives over; some with hope and anticipation and others with dread and mediocrity.

We chip away at the time we have in our lives with many experiences and relationships and fill up our time with some productive and some frivolous activities.

We believe what we have learned and fall into individual patterns of behavioral expression until one day when we come to the realization that our lives are a result of what we have done and not done with the gift of time we have been given.

Most often, this occurs too late in life and some will regret what has happened and some will simply start over again. It is our choice to meet each day with vim and vigor or with avoidance and disdain. We choose as a result of what we feel and believe is right for us.

It is simple; if you aren’t living the way you know inside that you want to live you haven’t been making the right choices. If you are living the life of your dreams and maintaining it, then you are doing what is necessary to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Place yourself in the flow of your Divine goodness and that same goodness will flow through you each and every day. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The gifts we all have when we are born are our lives, the time in which to live them and the resources in which to manifest our Divine purposes in Divine order. Our gift that we give back to the Divine is in completely trusting to fulfill and actualize the desires that were placed in our hearts by sharing love with all. Have you given to the Divine in thanks and gratitude for what has been freely and unconditionally given to you? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Those who live by the sword allow the control, domination and manipulation of their own quest for self-survival to effectuate change by the implementation of their own perceived power and the convictions from their learned belief system of their own self-worth.

Those who live by the dove allow the presence of the Spirit of God to guide us to the best scenario for everyone concerned while maintaining a respectful relationship with the Divine. We CAN set the tone of our interactions with others by approaching it as a new learning experience while being sincerely cordial and polite.

We don’t HAVE to fight! We can have our different ways of looking at things and be willing to compromise to the effect of Divine will. The Divine knows where you should be, at what time and with who is present to grow and expand your life; and the Divine knows it better than us. The time is coming when we will respect the beauty of the dove and convert our swords into plowshares.

We can and will have peace when we know we can do this. Let’s make it happen together. Thank you, all of the inhabitants of Mother Earth for the honor, privilege and joy I have had in experiencing all of you. May this Earth live in peace; now and ever more. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


We are all more precious than we even realize sometimes. Just the fact that we were given a life full of grace, love and the opportunity to co-create proves that we are divinely blessed.

We are here for a purpose; to love one another and manifest peace amid the chaos all around us. We are truly blessed to be loved by our Creator, to recognize and appreciate divine beauty and to help others along their way.

Thank you, Divine Infinite Spirit that has created our reality to express our Divine purpose perfectly. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


One who diminishes the value of the infinite spirit within is diminishing their own value and worth. You have access to all of the presence, knowledge, power and co-creativity of the Divine every moment you allow yourself to exist in the now.

Feel that divine spark within you and listen to its guidance in every thought that you think, every feeling you experience, every belief you embrace, every word that you speak, every action that you take and every behavior that you express.

Feel from whence you came and where you truly exist. You are spirit existing in a world of many wonders for you to experience, embrace and enjoy. Don’t ever diminish what is the best part of you.

Love it in yourself, others and allow it to shine forth into your world. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What are you doing with the Divine gifts you’ve been given? Are you using them to make your life better and actualize your purpose? Or are you ignoring them or dismissing them as unnecessary in your life? The key factor here is that it is ‘you’ who holds onto these beliefs as to whether you apply your gifts or resist them.

You are the one who can choose to discharge any and all erroneous beliefs that stifle your creativity, limit your potential and deny the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. When you identify with the greater YOU and operate from that center, the lesser you will respond and fall in line with what is best for you.

It requires YOU to take command over you. How do you do this? Accept and allow the Divine to flow through you while you reject what is detrimental to your unfolding and not resisting it. Resisting it will give it power and you will undo all of your efforts by using your energy to fight instead of allowing it to pass ‘through’ you. Be diligent and responsible with your life.

Stop fighting what annoys you and create a state of peace surrounding it and you will be effectively using your personal power to master your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you choose to listen to the internal dialogue of why you can’t do something or your aversion to someone without definitive reasons, you are buying into a belief that has not been tested, challenged or examined at its roots. Emotions layer one on top of another and eventually create trees of beliefs that are rooted in your subconscious minds.

Ever try to chop down a tree with a thick trunk? It is a great deal of work just like what it takes to remove the rooted trees of erroneous beliefs you accept as true. When you search your feelings and cannot come up with a justifiable reason as to why you can’t do something or why you don’t like someone, it is probably an erroneous belief that you have blindly accepted as true.

The roots are so deep that you have to undo layers of emotions from year after year of blind acceptance; like getting to the center of the tree through its outer rings that been layered there year after year.

We sometimes blindly accept erroneous beliefs because we ‘want’ them to be real. We want their ‘reality’ to exist in our lives and sometimes we don’t even know why. It is what is comfortable to us in so many ways. In order to completely remove erroneous beliefs we must uproot the trees firmly planted in our subconscious minds.

How do we do this? We make the time every day to go within and ‘loosen the dirt’ around the base of the trunk until we can topple the tree. Trying to cut down the tree at the base still leaves the root and it will grow back again while our attention is elsewhere. We need to remove the tree AND the root in order to approach the unfolding of our subjective truth within the objective truth of the Divine.

Consistent and dedicated prayer (asking and believing the tree will be uprooted), meditation (loosening the dirt) and service (making the steps to remove the tree and its roots) afford us a practical and methodical means to accomplish the removal of erroneous beliefs.

Until we make these steps we will be on automatic response to our deep-rooted beliefs that undermine the unfolding of our Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Look before you leap. Listen before you speak. Touch before you feel. Taste and smell before you ingest.

These are all rules of the 5 senses that we have experienced sometimes in our lives. What about our inner spiritual sense? Slow down and be still.

This is the one rule that when followed yields inner peace. It is there, at our center, always waiting for us to come home.

Make the inner trip home every day and bathe in the essence of the Divine. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The first time you feel the presence of the Divine within changes your life forever. You come to know there is more to your being than you have ever known. You move from the physical world of your body into the emotional realm of your beliefs; and from identifying with your mind to the realization of Oneness with the Divine.

You experience the entirety of your being in a state of timelessness, stillness and silence. You have taken the inner journey from identifying with your ego to identifying with your spirit. Your experiences begin to reflect the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. Challenges become apparent and you learn to proact from them instead of react to them.

Maintain your center of peace no matter what appears to happen in the outer world. Operate from Divine guidance and not from ego’s desire to control, dominate and manipulate experiences in your favor. Help others become who they were created to be and you will discover that you are becoming what you were created to be.

All because you have let go and allowed love to express through you. Be at peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


It is important to create space for us,
to connect with ourselves,
connect with the Divine,
connect with nature, etc.

For it is the space between the notes
that makes music so beautiful.
If we played all the notes at the same time,
it would not be music, but just noise.

Similarly, when we create time and space for ourselves, 
we allow ourselves to step out of the chaos of life
and step into our divinity and our connection to the infinite.

~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When someone insists upon doing something in a way that has never worked before, they are selfishly blinded by their egotistical desire to be right; no matter what. It is in their determination to be right that they lose sight of what is right for all. For example, trickle-down economics has NEVER worked; history has PROVEN this time and time again.

Yet, Conservative Republican proponents insist that it works. What the truth is, in fact, different from their hollow promises. Yes, some of it trickles down but stops prior to reaching the Upper Middle Class. In the greedy zeal to ‘move up’, these people reinvest whatever windfalls they get into financial concerns that don’t yield the growth and expansion of manufacturing and distribution here in the USA.

The Middle Class NEVER sees the trickle-down effect; yet they still lie and try to sell us a bill of goods to promote their warped, twisted and self-serving agendas. Don’t buy into this false rhetoric. Be a part of ‘we the people’ instead of ‘me the person’.

Together we can send ripples of defiance into their world that will shake its very foundations. Unite and defend one another. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Can we grow spiritually? Do we expand into a consciousness of spirit? Or do we simply just allow the subtlety of spirit to guide our consciousness into a state of spiritual manifestation?

We can become aware or ‘enlightened’ as to our individual consciousness but how good is that if we don’t ‘do’ something with it? Sometimes the light is on and nobody is home.

'Growing' and expanding comes from the understanding of spiritual experience and is a direct result from sharing that light with others. It is NOT a selfish experience but a ‘collective’ one.

It is not only realizing that we are all connected, but it is affecting that connection with the active and ongoing sharing of love. Love doesn’t ‘trickle-down’ from God; it flows out of YOU! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

"TEAMWORK" Cooperative EFFORT. WORKING or ACTING TOGETHER in the interests of a common cause."
by Angels Whisper


When we assign our human qualities to God we are being selfish. We are creating God in our image when in fact it is we who were created in His image.

We reflect what He projects and we project what we believe we are. Are the results we attain in our lives not reflecting what we ‘think’ we are projecting?

If they are then we are not ‘feeling’ what we are thinking. Reflection of the image we create in our minds only comes when we live in expectation of our Divine desires.

We must ‘feel’ our way through by allowing Divine guidance to light our paths. If we don’t, it is like turning off the light before we walk down a dark hallway. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you eat all of your life from a silver spoon you become accustomed to receiving things because you are who you are in a prominent family. When you have to live with the rest of the world outside of your familial box, you come to learn that you have to work for what is yours and that what is yours is transitory at best.

The only true center is to be thankful for what you have and help others to earn their own way. That does NOT include cutting taxes for the rich, shipping jobs for the middle class overseas and playing games with the livelihood of people for your own political end.

Shame on the Republicans. Shame! Shame! Their selfishness will bear no fruit and they will be cursed for their lack of caring, creativity and stubbornness. Just as Jesus cursed the fig tree for not bearing fruit, so will their party and values be cursed for not being loyal to their fellow Americans. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


To be spiritual is to respect the Divine in others and nurture everyone's understanding of our collective humanhood and how we need to progress together into the future where everyone has an equal opportunity for growth and expansion.

Extreme conservative values DO NOT reflect those values. They are 'me' or 'ego' centered and not 'we' or spirit centered. The only values that actually work are an effective balance between conservative AND liberal values, just as socialism balances out capitalism.

Those who are selfish and greedy take conservative values to an extreme, just like those who are too communal and free form take liberal values to an extreme. The reason this country has survived is due to a balance between those values. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I have been accused of being ‘liberal’ again and that I shouldn’t confuse being liberal with being spiritual. When people do this it reveals just how limited their intellect is about what I have stated. I have stated over and over again that values are self-evident; and since most conservatives base what I say on their conservative 'values', they automatically blame what I say on being liberal.

Wake up, Conservatives! The smell of your stinkin' thinkin' has revealed your obvious agenda! I wish you peace and I hope things start smelling better for you! Until you realize that we are PROGRESSING as a civilization, you will continue to base our collective existence on your REGRESSIVE conservative values.

It’s time for you to GROW UP and STOP being selfish; stop bullying the rest of us with your selfish agendas and STOP speaking like two year olds throwing a tantrum when you don’t get your way. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


It would be wonderful if political pundits and politicians would come down from their self-elevated view of themselves where they believe they can tell us what to say or do. They come into our lives and make their comments on our society based on their opinions. Accept them and respond accordingly.

When they reveal that they are so sensitive about 'name calling', that reveals that they aren't totally convinced about their positions.

If the manner in which our response is delivered back to them is more important than the content of what is being said, then what they believe in demonstrates that they have inner doubts that THEY choose NOT to deal with or handle effectively.

It they would clean their own house before they criticize someone else's, they wouldn’t have much to say, would they? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


“Give and it will be given to you in good measure, pressed down and overflowing, they shall cast into your lap. For with what measure you measure it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 - Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010).

Sounds simple, right? It is. Give of your talents, skills and abilities to others in Divine Service. You will realize your dreams when you help others realize theirs. God bless you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


You know what? Your choices affect your life whether you believe it or not.

Why do you choose to undermine your growth and expansion when you could love your neighbor, help them find their calling and manifest yours?

It is so simple that it goes over the heads of most intellectuals and most emotionals.

When we share, we care. When we care, we love. When we love, we are being who we were created to be. NO downside! Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Anytime we hold back our sharing, avoid Divine goodness and ‘humble’ ourselves needlessly, it is NOT our spirit that is expressing it. It is the ego’s vain attempt at the ‘why me’ concept. Why NOT you?

You are a child of the Most High God and you were created to express LOVE!!! You have been blessed with talents, skills and abilities from the Divine for you to USE! If you don’t use them, it is like the servant who buried his talent. He was afraid of losing what was graciously given to him.

Don’t be afraid to be whom and what you were created to be! God does NOT make mistakes. Only you do when you choose to not actualize your Divine purpose. It’s like telling God that He didn’t know what He was doing when you were created. Not a good thing to do.

Embrace what you have been blessed with and be the perfect expression of Divine LOVE! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


It is the Spirit of God within that gives you life through the power of Divine love. Why do you deny sharing that with others? Is it because you fear if you give it away you will no longer have it? Or is it because your selfishness is more important than allowing the Divine to flow love through you to manifest health, wealth, prosperity and abundance?

Whatever it may be it’s time for you to break up the dam that’s blocking the flow of Divine creativity. It is your choices in resisting or allowing that makes things happen.

Make choices based on Divine awareness and not human self-centered intelligence or emotional reaction to environmental stimuli. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


“Spewing out hatred and prejudice rather than reasoned opinion is the bane of our species. There are, sometimes, oftentimes, honest and intelligent people that will disagree on the interpretation of "facts"; question the validity of the facts; or question the accuracy of the source providing the facts.

Adding to this state of affairs is the observation that values are not always related or even "supported" by facts or other metrics. While we may want to be like Spock, in Star Trek, our human family isn't so "logical". We love, we hate, we inspire, and we destroy.

I would argue, that if there is any single metric to measure the value of what we think, say, or do, it is love. While facts and logic are important and necessary for our survival, love makes it worthwhile. I don't, however, have any facts to support my opinion.” ~Jim Mock


Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), a middle class barrister who served in the English Parliament as Speaker of the House of Commons once stated, “Corporations cannot commit treason, nor be outlawed, nor excommunicated, for they have no souls.” We are at a time in history where we can all come together and stop the advance of greedy individuals, blatant liars and crooked politicians who operate their selfish agendas under the guise of corporations.

Our voice can and will be heard all over the world this coming November. It is our destiny to show the world that we are honorable and decent people despite what our former government leaders have done to too many countries in the world. We can send a message of hope to the world that we want to grow and expand along with them.

If we allow the conservative Republican base with their regressive agenda to compromise our growth and expansion into citizens of the world, then we are complicit in their heinous acts of war, derision and self-serving anti-environmental agendas. Our families and children will pay the price for our lack of concern and unwillingness to take a stand against greed and avarice.

Remember also what Edward Coke said almost 500 years ago, “Those who consent to the act and those who do it shall be equally punished.” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.



The real secret in life is NOT sublimating your ego and placing it on the back burner at a low simmer. It is NOT sitting in your inner sanctum all day and feeling the presence of God and pondering how spiritual you are.

The secret to manifesting your Divine purpose in Divine order is to allow it to happen by ‘balancing’ your self-interests with Divine guidance.

Plan your trip but be flexible enough to take the scenic route and still arrive at your destination when it is best for you to be there.

Don’t lament over what you perceive as a wrong turn. When you completely trust in the Divine every turn you make is a part of you unfolding your Divine purpose in Divine order; trust and certainty, not doubt and uncertainty.

The truth of your existence is revealed in your ability to let go of the ego’s control at the appropriate times and allow the Spirit of God to guide your steps. God is NOT your co-pilot; God is your PILOT! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When humankind stops all wars and fighting is when the human condition will move from ego dominance to the expression of spiritual balance.

We can achieve this by understanding that we are all individualized expressions of the Divine and acting in a mature fashion that is centered in peace and manifests mutual joy. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The ego is always looking for the 'prize'. When we let that go, the only thing that is left is the sharing of love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Thanx to Alan Brunton for inspiring this post!

Love is the freely flowing unfettered energy that moves throughout the universe. It cannot be held or captured; it revitalizes and heals when it flows from one light to another. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Thanx to Bobby Hinkle and Manoj Kumar for inspiring this post!

Repeat this prayer everyday and feel the truth of what it says. You are what you say you are, feel you are and know you are. Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect!

I am THAT, I am!

I am health. I am wealth. I am prosperity. I am abundance. I am peace. I am joy. I am complete understanding. I am the fulfillment of my Divine purpose in Divine order. I am THAT, I am. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Why is living in the now such a gift? Because there is no time like the present! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead is inside of you. ~Joel Osteen

A teacher of Divine truth points the way. It is the student who has to walk it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When SELF is allowed to rule, nothing ever said by self or any other self truly matters. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." ~ Rita Mae Brown (NOT Albert Einstein). “Actually, it’s stupidity. Insanity would be listening to the voices in the toaster telling you to do the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ~Elizabeth May Sutor-Banks

Never confuse education with intelligence. ~Belize Beach Bum

Never confuse intelligence with awareness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Wisdom is the state of letting go of everything you know, feel and sense and completely trusting in the Divine to guide our way. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The Divine reveals the why and how when you need to know it and when you need to act on it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Our senses are not always required when experiencing and imparting Divine wisdom. It comes from listening to the silence while being present in the stillness and sharing Divine love with all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to live in your Divine purpose then to make excuses to yourself and others as to why you are not. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to choose to experience the feelings of the end result of your dreams then to wallow in mediocrity claiming that it will never happen; feeling doubt, worry and fear as to why it will never happen and experiencing the fruition of living in negativity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate. ~Carl Gustav Jung

Be a beacon of light to those who are searching for safety; your Divine purpose will be manifested, joy will result and peace will abound. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When your sole identification of life moves from ‘me’ to ‘we’ is when you will know why you were created and what Divine purpose you need to fulfill. Until then, survival will predominate in your thoughts and emotions and thriving in life will be tabled due to selfishness, separation and an inclination toward mediocrity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Love is the absence of nothing and the presence of everything. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Can you imagine if the constituency of the Tea Party went to the library and did their homework? Facts don't lie; people do. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you expect nothing, you will get NOTHING. When you appreciate everything you learn to expect everything. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you don't expect the best to happen, your results will always reflect what you don't expect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
