When someone you love won’t believe you, denies your experience and talks down to you like you are beneath them, feel the hurt and realize that they are not in touch with their spirit. If they were, they would give you the opportunity to tell them the truth, give consideration to your experience and treat you with respect despite their opinion of you. Their behavior clearly reflects that their egos are in charge and there is no room in their heart for anything other than what they ‘believe’ has happened. They have forged a wall of beliefs that are so rigid and unmoving because if they allowed any other possibility to exist, it would shatter their comfort zone.

Pray for their peace, understanding, love and joy. Let them go and know that you have lived in honesty and have done what is right. Their hurtful words are designed to make them feel better and not you at all. What they don’t realize is that their emotionally charged opinions, attitudes and beliefs don’t take the experience of others into account. Someday they might grow up and come to know that it was them who chose to build those walls and NOT you.

Come to know that the pain you feel from hurtful words is because you truly love the person who is hurtful to you. Trust in the Divine to implement and unfold Divine order; it is your job to discharge the hurt and replace it with Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


It takes thousands of years for one photon of light released from solar fusion to make it to the surface of the Sun. During that time it refuses with hydrogen recreating helium and releasing more photons ad infinitum. Finally after its journey from matter to energy and back, it gets released from the confines of the Sun and takes 8 minutes to get to the Earth. It arrives as pure light or plasma in the solar wind or from a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection). It arrives on Earth and again converts from energy back to matter when it is absorbed through photosynthesis or heat creation.

It is the same photon changing states over and over again and continuing the process of life; much the same with our spirit. We all share the same Spirit of God and when that spirit flows through our individual bodily chemistry we express it as our individual souls. We release that spirit upon the death of our bodies and it never dies. It is eternal and will embody someone else someday.

We are all connected from spirit to energy to matter and back. Why not be thankful for that experience and share the gift of Divine love with all every day? Why not be the beauty that we were created to be? Why not? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Every molecule in your body is the embodiment of Light. It is energy in a denser form that expresses itself in union and in tandem with other molecules to produce the necessary chemical interactions that release themselves as thought energy. This thought energy projects itself to move more molecules and create an environmental expression that creates a cause that the environment reflects back to you. Your emotions then react to that ‘effect’ and move more molecules within your body. It is an ongoing electro-chemical process that is ‘moved’ by the transference of energy from one state to another.

We are immersed in our environments and they are a part of us as we are a part of them. The transference of energy is impersonal and continues without our participation at a molecular level. When we become aware that we can affect the motion of molecules from within through effective prayer, meditation and service, we begin to transcend our awareness of the confines of molecular interaction into the freedom and healing of the experience of being Light.

We are beings of Light learning to unlearn what we have been taught in order to experience the freedom of reality from the inside out and not from the outside in. Breathe in the environment and breathe out your Light. We are all connected from the Light within. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Do you remember the old expression, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? If you do, have you ever wondered why? Our physical bodies rely on our bones to provide a dense and stable framework from which our muscles flex from and move our bodies. Much the same with our emotional ‘bodies’.

We have a dense emotional framework from which our emotions and feeling ‘flex’ from and move us forward in accomplishing things in our lives; they are called our ‘values’. Our values are our emotional convictions that we consider as our benchmarks of behavior with respect to their worth, excellence, usefulness, or importance in our lives.

Every time someone challenges our worth by calling us names, damning our convictions or threatening our values we reflect on what we value to either ‘fight’ them, run away (flight) from them or simply allow them to pass through us without emotionally attaching to them. Our cemented values determine how we will ‘react’ or ‘proact’ in any given situation.

When someone calls you a name the only reason you are sensitive to it is because your ego ‘reacts’ to it trying to protect you from attack. You either run from this person and their attack or fight them dead on. There is a third choice, however.

Realizing that what anyone says about you or to you will NEVER diminish who you truly are allows you to be able to let their harsh words ‘pass’ through you without you identifying, believing or attaching to their thought stream. Names will NEVER hurt you when you do this but if you allow your ego to be in command they will ‘hurt’ you.

Don’t allow the attacks of others to diminish the being of Light whom you truly are; you are greater than what anyone ‘says’ you are. Like water off of a duck’s back let their negativity flow back to where it was projected from and diffuse itself.

You don’t have to accept what ANYONE says about you; however, if what they say rings true within you then make the steps to correct any aberrant behaviors that you feel you express that are counterproductive to the mutual growth and expansion of all in your life.

Be aware, be diligent and be forthright. It is your strength and focus when it comes to the acceptance, rejection, allowance or resistance of the values you have cemented in your being as being valid and true. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

To all those races, sexes, and Gentiles who have had to put up with the dogma and persecution of the various sects of Christianity come to know one thing; it was the followers of Christ who committed those atrocities against you and not the Christ.

It was those who chose to live in fear instead of the love of Christ. He spoke with love and authority and no one listened to what he truly said. They heard what they wanted to hear to control, dominate and manipulate you to their own end. They are living in pure hell and they don’t even realize it.

Become one with the Christ within you. All of the great religions have spoken of this reality and it is called by many names. The names don’t matter; what matters is that you realize that you are Divine love and that the Spirit of God lives within you. Live from that spirit every moment of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you expect others to fulfill their potential it is incumbent upon you to help them to understand the tools that are available for them to become fulfilled.

Posturing about their opportunities and abilities without realizing that they might not have your vision is assuming that they have had the same type of experiences you have had. It is NOT demonstrating Divine love; it is living form without substance.

Anyone can learn what to do to unfold their Divine purpose in Divine order but in order to traverse the path they need the support of Divine love from those who do understand the form and share the substance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Walking in the light doesn’t mean that the path you traverse is always well lit; it means that no matter what path you are on you will be guided safely to your perceived destination by Divine love.

It means fine tuning your inner ear that perceives Divine silence and listening for the thoughts and images that direct you forward. Being internally perceptive as well as externally perceptive requires daily immersion in the well of Divine love.

Swim in the pool of consciousness where stillness is expressed into the realization and actualization of your Divine purpose in Divine order. It is always there; just a breath away. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Carl Gustav Jung - The World Within 1


What you express to the world identifies your awareness of your connection to spirit.

Express all that is supportive, encouraging and uplifting. It is your acts of Divine love that define you.

Act accordingly and share the blessings you have been so graciously given. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


With each and every breath know you are loved. Feel the presence of the Spirit of God and listen for Divine guidance from within.

You are the facilitator of the living word and it is up to you to live from the presence with every thought you think, every feeling you feel, every belief you accept, every word you speak, every action you take and every behavior you express.

There are NO excuses except what your ego manufactures to protect itself from sharing its perceived power with the Spirit of God.

The true and only power is the Divine love from within. Don’t you think it’s time to allow the Divine to fulfill your Divine purpose in Divine order?

If your ego is all that, then why hasn’t it accomplished that already? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


To live, or not to live (and adaptation from Hamlet 3/1)

To live, or not to live: that is the question

It is nobler in the mind to rejoice

The peace and love of the Divine,

To not take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by letting them go end them? To live: to awaken;

Evermore; and by an awakening to say we are eternal

No more heart-ache and thousands of natural shocks

That spirit is heir to, 'tis a fulfillment

Devoutly to be allowed. To live, to awaken;

To be One: perchance to dream: ay, there's the satisfaction;

For in that awakening what dreams that come

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us joy: there's the respect

That makes an understanding of so long life;

For who would bear the rejoice and release of time,

The supporter’s uplifting, the wise man's encouragement,

The tingles of unconditional love, the law's fulfillment,

The fulfillment of office and the praises

That patient justification of the worthy takes,

When he himself might his inner voice heard

With a bare soul? who would the collective bear,

To relax and be at peace under a fulfilled life,

But that the embrace of something after death,

The undiscover'd country that we rediscover

Every traveller returns, and informs the will

And makes us rather rejoice in the spirit we have

Than fly to others that we know is the truth within?

Thus conscience does make heroes of us all;

And thus the native hue of resolution and understanding

Is felt within with the glory of thought,

And enterprises of great form and substance

With this regard their currents turn in our collective favor,

And gain the peace of tranquility. – Be here now!

The blessed spirit within, in thy fulfilled being

Be all my blessings be remember'd.,

Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to help people to think then to think you are helping people. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

God has planted seeds within all of us. If we deny those seeds, we deny who and what we are inside. When we all STOP trying to determine one another's course by using OUR values as a barometer for everyone, then, and only then, will we truly be loving our neighbor as ourselves. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to trust completely in the Divine then to allow your ego to fool you into thinking that it is right and in command ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to smile and share love from within then to look for love in those who don’t know what it is at all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to speak the truth and be ridiculed then to live a lie and be dishonest with yourself. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to extend a helping hand to those in need then to walk away and be secure in your comfort zone. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to get out to encourage and support others then to sit in your closet and feel sorry for yourself. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to be at peace within then to seek harmony among individuals who live from their egos alone. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to discharge your anger alone then to dump it on others and poison their peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to walk away from someone who disagrees with you then to look for them to acknowledge your viewpoint. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Facts are irrelevant to those who have made up their mind. ~Rock Ridgeway

To many people facts are irrelevant. As Reagan himself said “Facts are Stupid Things”. Not quite. It is however conservatives aim to keep the masses dumb as they complete the complete “plutocratization” of our economy. ~Egberto Willies

I am honored, humbled and infinitely blessed to be able to call you friend. I have never known anyone in my life who resonates pure love like BKL. When I am frustrated, agitated or angered by the blatant lies and manipulations of the world, my brother Bent steps in with words of love that center me in peace. You are "Aziza Johari", Bent...a rare jewel! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to bite your tongue and say nothing, then to spew something that you know you will regret. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to say “I am here for you”, then to say ‘I understand” when you don’t have a clue. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to smile from within, then to create a façade of happiness when you are not. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to pay attention to what people say, then to nod your head in agreement when you are not paying attention at all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to love your neighbor as yourself, then to love yourself and not your neighbor. 
~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is better to speak and live in the truth, then to say what people want to hear to comfort them. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

We all learn from each other and our religions. However, when those religions deny our Oneness with God, we have to let them go! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you stop holding yourself back from the great expression of divinity you were created to be is when everything will fall into place and your life will unfold perfectly. Until then, find out what is holding you back, get rid of it and move into complete fulfillment. You were created to co-create the seed that was planted in your heart and until you water and nurture that seed you will never be completely fulfilled. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

It is the mark of an uneducated mind to be able accept a thought as true without proving its truth and validity. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

No matter the distance, barriers of communication or time invested in life, friends will find each other and grow together for their mutual benefit. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What have you done today to allow your divinity to guide your life? Have you made the time for divine communion? Or did you rush out the door to go to church to commune with fellow believers?

Did you smile graciously and nod your head during the message and say your goodbyes after the ceremony? Have you come home and felt any better? Or have you simply gone back to bed because you are too exhausted from the work week? Are you living in a cycle of ongoing mediocrity or are you passionate about your inner divinity?

It is up to you to answer these questions honestly to yourself. If you can’t, your ego is in command and it will maintain its rule over you. Teach it to be the co-pilot to the Spirit of God within. Nothing will move forward to unfold your Divine purpose in Divine order until you do. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Each and every day make it your goal to get out of your own way. Learn how to sidestep from your ego-driven perceptions that you are on the right track.

Be flexible enough to know that there are things that you don’t see on your path that could cause you to stumble.

The unseen can be navigated around when you allow the Spirit of God to guide you by getting out of your own way! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you step in shit you have a choice; either continue to walk with it stuck to your shoes and smell the stench or you clean it off and take another path that leads to victory.

Obama has done this. He cleaned off the stinkin' thinkin' of supply side economics and moved forward adopting demand side economics by reinforcing the middle class.

When the middle class prospers, everyone prospers. Historical FACT! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Shades Of Grey by Dean A. Banks

©1996 Dean A. Banks (words and music)

Chorus 1:

Elephants see black or white
Pig-headed donkeys put up a fight
Don’t see the world in black or white
Because it’s shades of grey

Verse 1:

Don’t want to see, they block out the truth
Can’t remember what they did in their youth
Always livin’ in a box so tight
Can’t even let in a shimmer of light

Chorus 2:

Elephants see black or white
Pig-headed donkeys put up a fight
Don’t see the world in black or white
Because it’s shades of grey

Verse 2:

People try to live on their own
Can’t hold a job so they lose their home
Politicians say they care
Here comes the camera, straighten their hair
Instrumental: Sax Solo


You’re on assistance, can’t find a job
Big Brother’s turkey, to cook up and carve
In the meantime, you can starve
We’ll cut your welfare, won’t be doing you harm
We’ll raise your children on an animal farm

Chorus 3:

Elephants see black or white
Pig-headed donkeys put up a fight
Don’t see the world in black or white
Because it’s shades of grey

Extended Chorus:

Cause the world’s not black or white
Can’t heal the bruise they run out of fright
Always decide it’s wrong or right
Just seems to be their way

Vamp Out: Repeat 4 X; Sax solo out

Elephants see black or white
Pig-headed donkeys put up a fight
Don’t see the world in black or white
Because it’s shades of grey


A musician is an artist that paints pictures with sound. The palette of various tonal colors in unison and harmony are expressed within the precision of rhythm.

When a musician ‘aligns’ with other musicians in the expression of the sonic palette, it creates internal reactions and proactions of being ‘in the zone’.

The feeling of peace and alignment while 'in the zone' gives a musician a sense of purpose and meaning. I have experienced this many times in my life while playing in bands onstage, in rehearsal and in recording. When the 'groove' is felt completely it's as if you are riding the crest of the wave of spirit in perfect harmony and rhythm. You just let yourself go and become the music.

It IS an alignment of the physical and spiritual by letting go of the mental and emotional reactions and proactions. Your feelings are your guide to immersing yourself in the music; being one with the music requires the ‘letting go’ of any perceived ability to control the ‘flow’ of the music.

It is an experience that comes after years of learning, practicing and performing have been expressed. Much the same with anything in your life; co-create your individual ‘song’ by learning what it is, practicing the ways in which you express it and performing it perfectly in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

Custom Fine Art by F.R. Rittenhouse


To all you closet racists out there I would like to challenge you with one thought. When you go and vote for a liar, deceiver and a person who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about you or your family (Trump), and when he implements all of his skewed and corporate agenda; and when you are worse off in one year than you ever have been in your whole life; I want you to remember one thing: You were warned.

You were informed. You were advised. And you still chose to follow what you ‘thought’ was right. Shame on you for hiding your obvious racism. Shame on you for denying the truth when it was right in your face; and shame on you for imposing YOUR view on the rest of us because you didn’t make the time to investigate the truth.

Take your ignorance, racism and bigotry and out it where the Sun don’t shine. For it is there that is where you live your life from; what you excrete on the rest of us. God bless you for having the Spirit of God within you and God damned you for not listening to it. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Once you come to the realization that what you imagine as real is how your life unfolds, you will begin to make the correct choices in what you hold as true.

Once you master those choices, you will elevate your consciousness out of the pit of despair of your selfish ego and integrate it into the mutual growth and expansion of all.

It is your responsibility to grow up from childish 'thinking' and 'reacting' and mature into adult 'knowing' and 'being'. You have been given free will and Divine grace to make that journey.

Use those gifts to create a life of health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


We will all wake up tomorrow in a world that has a chance for peace, growth and expansion.

We all have a great deal to be thankful for.

Divine Infinite Spirit, thank you for bringing us a chance for peace; an environment for growth; and a society that fosters expansion through education, understanding and mutual love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Hey, Donald, "Let's start a revolution" Trump, how about donating that 5 million you posed to Obama about his transcripts to the victims on the Jersey shore that you’ve raped over the years? You know what I mean!

The contractors for you gaudy casino that you NEVER paid; the worst wage and benefit packages for your workers; all while you sit in your overindulgent office adorned with gold and pontificate about your wisdom.

You might be a winner with $$$, but you are a LOSER as a person. Your ego is so big that it magnetically sucks what hair you have left to your head. Everything you do is so that people will recognize you.

You are pathetic and your time has come to be known for just what you are; a person who exploits his fellow humankind for his own greedy profit. Your time is winding down and your limelight is coming to an end.

Oh, and BTW, YOU'RE FIRED!!! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. When you argue for what's right and stand firm on the truth, you create and windfall of energy that will lift you up and carry you through.

When you argue for what's wrong and force your way through based on lies, you create a backlash of energy that will suck you in and spit you out. What is right?

Anything and everything that supports the growth and expansion of life, the understanding of truth and the sharing of Divine love. What is wrong? Anything and everything that debilitates growth and expansion for you and others and denies the sharing of Divine love with ANYONE!

This is a simple acid test that can be used as a lifelong barometer for aligning your Divine purpose with Divine order. Be fruitful and forthright with others, yourself and the Divine. It is why you are here! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Can we smell fear? Do we have a built in reptilian brain mechanism that ‘senses’ fear and other emotions? Recent biological research in the Netherlands shows that we can ‘smell’ fear and other emotions like ‘disgust’. In fact, most recent research in our ability to sense our environment shows that our senses work together in creating a ‘sensory snapshot’ of ‘slices’ of the electromagnetic spectrum that are ‘received’ by our senses and that we emotionally ‘react’ to through the constructs of ‘fight or flight’.

Our 5 physical senses are miraculous receptors of environmental stimuli. They receive electromagnetic and mechanical ‘waves’ in frequency ranges and convert them to chemical reactions that travel through our bodies to our brains. Our nerves operate on a ‘sodium-potassium’ pump that discharges electrical energy that our brains receive and ‘react’ with chemical interchanges that generate ‘thought’ energy to either ‘run toward’ or ‘run away from’ environmental stimuli. Our internal mechanism of environmental interaction is quite elaborate, yet very simple. It generally works quite well most of the time except when influenced by outside or self-induced ‘chemical’ alterations.

What about our speculated 6th and 7th senses? Our sixth ‘psychic’ sense has been documented by scientific research and postulated based on a ‘probability’ of its existence. We sense ‘feelings’ from our environments without respect to distance or proximity of the source of those feelings. These, in turn, get programmed into our subconscious minds that automatically respond to similar occurrences repeated in our environments.

Our seventh ‘spiritual’ sense has been postulated as our channel of Divine communication. It is where we no longer ‘sense’ what is occurring outside of ourselves; it is what we ‘know’ is occurring without the backup of physical ‘facts’ and the perception of the truth and validity of those facts. This ‘knowing’ resonates in our ‘being’ and compels us to take action toward ‘averting’ or ‘concurring’ with occurrences in our environment as being ‘good’ or ‘bad’ to our well-being.

Daily meditation keeps this channel ‘open’ and ‘clear’ for us to ‘know’ what is truly going on in our respective environments. Our seventh sense is not something that we can prove physically, but that doesn’t stop us from using it. Much like magnetism; ask any engineer or scientist ‘what’ it is and they will come up with explanations of what it ‘does’ but NOT what it ‘is’. That doesn’t stop us from using the ‘effects’ of it to provide over 5 billion mobile devices throughout the world in order to communicate with each other.

All of our senses work together to create a ‘snapshot’ of our world that we subsequently ‘react’ to or ‘proact’ from in order to traverse through our lives and affect our environments. A healthy body, a balance of appropriate emotions, a clear mind and a ‘spiritual’ communion are the ingredients to an effective recipe for growth and expansion.

Use the gifts of our senses to navigate through life and co-create a world that reflects beauty, peace and love. It is up to each and every one of us to purge our beings from erroneous beliefs derived from our experiences and celebrate the beauty that life has to offer. Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


How do we gain more knowledge of our lives? We learn to fine tune the perception of our environments and develop an understanding of how the pieces fit together. This gives us a working knowledge of life; however, it doesn’t stop there. We need to understand the knowledge we have learned and how to integrate it into manifesting our Divine purpose perfectly.

By listening to the examples of others and the platitudes of embracing wisdom, we learn how and when to use the knowledge we have gained. At the core of obtaining wisdom is the understanding of the equality of all; the respect for the divinity within each and every one of us. This benchmark provides a standard by which we discern our societal integration and judge our subsequent behaviors. Wisdom embraces equity, judgment and the deliverance of justice for all. It teaches the value of discretion in our interactions with all of life.

The path to living in Divine wisdom starts with a willingness to be educated, a thirst for knowledge and a determination to know the truth. Upon learning from life, others and the diligent absorption of the thoughts and feelings written down through the ages, we learn to seek the counsel of the Divine within by making the time everyday for communion with the source of all life.

The perception of an endless enigma and the unsolved riddles of life unwind and unfold when we allow the Divine to move Divine love through us, projecting the events, situations, occurrences, circumstances and people involved that are necessary to unfold our Divine purposes in Divine order.

Listen to the instruction of the still small voice of God and walk in the light of Divine wisdom. It is your destiny when you choose to allow Divine love to flow through you instead of resisting what you perceive is harming you. Wisdom comes from letting go. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


To all my wonderful friends: Before you cast aspersions on judgment, know exactly what it means. It is not what you might think it is, nor is it what is espoused in many 'spiritual' books. It is a tool to use to help you define and navigate on your individual path and not a stick to beat up another with to satisfy and justify your own thoughts, words, actions and beliefs.

Look up its definition. Read about how Jesus said your judgment is just when it is based on the wisdom of life. Stop throwing out the baby with the bathwater because some teacher, book or feeling taught you that judgment is a bad thing.

Until you realize that it is a way for you to learn about yourself, others and life in general, you will not be free from the constraints of your deceptive ego. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you allow someone to disrespect you over and over again, what does that say about you? Do you allow it happen time and time again and bite your tongue? Or do you say what’s on your mind and tell the truth?

It is up to all of us to either accept or reject people’s behavior toward us. When we accept their behavior and allow their dysfunctional behavior to prevail, we have a choice to either reject or resist their behaviors, or to simply remove yourself from their presence.

When the spirit moves your ego to say, “F this shit”, there is a reason. Follow it. No matter how things may appear, follow your heart. Trust in the Divine for the Divine is your source. Living with the stress of other people’s dysfunctional behavior is not what you are here for and it is not incumbent on you to accept it.

Get away from them and their aberrant behavior as quickly as you can; you will be MUCH better off! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Be forthright and honest in all you do and you will allow yourself to grow and expand into the being you were created to be.

Don’t allow the dishonesty of others to affect your alignment with your Divine purpose in Divine order.

Be the truth and be the love that you were created to be and don’t allow ANYONE to interfere with the expression of who you are.

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


What you allow to transpire in your life defines who you are, what you are becoming and how you are expressing your Divine purpose. Only allow what aligns your Divine purpose with Divine order in order to live in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance each and every day of your life.

Joy, peace, understanding, happiness and fulfillment are yours when you trust and allow the Divine to guide you. Don’t fool yourself into believing you are in control by resisting what you don’t understand.

Allow what you perceive as detrimental to your existence to pass through you without cognitive resistance and you won’t attach any negative emotions to that flow of energy.

Remove the non-cognitive emotional reactions by allowing Divine love to center you and nurture your growth and expansion into emotional maturity.

Be responsible for your ‘reactions’ and convert them into proactions by praying for guidance (asking), meditating to receive guidance (seeking) and serving others with your talents, skills and abilities (knocking).

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

"Life Is Tough Where A Helmut...Of Spiritual Protection & Self Confidence! Then Get The HELL Out!"
by Angels Whisper


The excuse many business people use to justify screwing over others is, "It's business." Well, getting the 'business' is different from being in 'business'. The true nature of business is to derive a profit from providing a valuable product or service to others.

This is adding value to people by creating innovation and not taking advantage of them. The next time you hear a business person saying, “It’s business” when people are hurt in the process, know that their egos are in command and their selfish desires are more important than anything else to them.

Don’t do ‘business’ with them because they are NOT centered in truth. Only do business with people who ‘add value’ by the fair exchange of goods and services. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Many meditation 'learning' techniques require concentration on a mantra or image until it dissipates and you enter a 'meditative' state.

Meditation is NOT concentration, contemplation or evaluation.

It is not ‘reasoning’ at all; it is remaining in silence, stillness and peace by allowing the chatter of your mind to flow naturally into oblivion. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


A black hole has several parts that explained by scientific constructs. The outer layer of a black hole is called the ‘ergosphere’; it is the region where matter and energy can be ‘extracted’ from the influence of the tremendous gravity of a black hole.

The next layer down is the ‘event horizon’. This is the inner layer where matter and energy ‘break down’ due to extreme gravitational influence. It is the ‘point of no return’ for matter and energy because they cannot escape the gravitational pull of the black hole.

The final region of a black hole is known as the ‘singularity’. It is a single point of infinite gravity smaller than the size of a hydrogen atom that either ‘crushes’ or ‘obliterates’ all matter and energy or simply ‘bridges’ it to another ‘universe’. It is a construct of something we don’t fully understand but we identify by its perceived characteristics.

Our consciousness operates in much the same manner. We extract influences from our immediate environments (like the ergosphere) that we either reject or accept internally. These influences are not too powerful at this point because they have yet to be emotionalized.

When these influences enter our subconscious minds and become emotionalized, they enter the ‘point of no return’ (like the event horizon) and get pulled to our centers of ‘singularity’. At the point of singularity these influences are ‘bridged’ and projected into our individual realities where we either react to them or proact from them.

It is always important to our individual well-beings to pay attention to what we ‘extract’ from our experiences and what emotions we allow to reinforce our evaluations of those experiences. The infinite gravitational power of a black hole is the same power of the ’singularity’ of our consciousness on a desired outcome when we allow our inner spirits to guide us to its fruition.

The Divine always answers ‘Yes’, but how that yes comes about is not dependent on our assessment of how it should come about but on how it should benefit all of life. When your realize that God is your pilot and the only thing you need to do is move the wheel in the direction you are guided to, then, and only then, will you experience the complete unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What do you do when you have run out of excuses to become what you were created to be? Do you invent more excuses? Do you isolate yourself from others? Or do you make the proactive decision to hunker down and grind out the changes you need to make?

Are you a responsible and mature adult? Or are you a person that plays a businessman, plays an average worker or plays being a con-artist to yourself and others?

Stop being on stage and get down to business! Be the change you were created to manifest and unfold the beauty that is you and make this world a better place. Make the tough decisions and buckle down to ride the crest of the way to complete and utter fulfillment of your Divine purpose in Divine order.

You will never know true happiness until you do! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


"I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience and I decide upon the goals I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked". ~ACIM (A Course In Miracles)

My response:

“I am responsible for what I project into this world. I choose to either react to or proact from the feelings I experience as I witness the reflections of my projections in my environment.

Everything that happens to me is a reflection of what I have projected. If I witness impropriety and focus on what does not contribute to the growth and expansion of all, I have a choice: to either point out the impropriety or recognize it and do nothing about it.

Being a part of the solution is more important than being a part of the problem. ACIR (A Course In Reality). ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Judgment is a tool by which we navigate through life. Jesus NEVER said to not use judgment. He said that if you do, you will be judged.

He also said that when we understand the wisdom of God our judgment is just. Would you rather be judged for having just judgment or for having bad judgment?

Learn the wisdom of the Divine and obtain just judgment; it will be a feather in your cap! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." - Albert Einstein

We all have the choice to attack the aberrance of others or love them from a distance. I have tried both approaches and they both work. Attacks jar loose the complacency of those who need more than love to awaken them. Sometimes we have to communicate with others in the language they understand; like Jesus did with the moneychangers.

We live in a world that is dualistic in nature and we need to use the tools at our disposal to initiate change. Jesus said not to remain in your closet to affect change; he said to love your neighbor as yourself and participate in life. Jesus himself pointed out the aberrance of others in not bearing good fruit in his interaction with the fig tree. Did he ‘love’ the fig tree? No, he cursed it for NOT bearing good fruit.

Love is a Divine tool and as James said, “Faith without works is dead.” Doing nothing in the face of aberrance is tantamount to participating in that aberrance. A leader never walks the path for the followers; the leader walks the path and the followers must follow the leader themselves in order to arrive at the destination. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Denying who and what you are is lying to yourself. Do you want to live a lie or do you want to be whom and what you were created to be?

Embrace the seed that the Divine has planted in your heart and nurture it no matter what occurs. That seed is your destiny and that seed is for you alone.

Don’t allow anyone or anything to distract you from growing that seed and expanding your life. May God bless you in your unfolding of your Divine flower of expression! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


‎It is better to choose the lesser of two evils then to waste your choice and allow the greater of two evils to reign because you thought that voting your conscience would allow you to sleep at night. Reality sometimes stings when you are distracted from what is REALLY going on and the greater evil wins out! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When ignorance in a society is considered a badge of honor, that society has lost touch with its understanding of Divine principles, Divine laws and Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When people are fooled again and again by the lies of the unscrupulous they come to believe that what they say is always true. Being blind-sided by untruths from people you ‘believe’ you trust is not easy to understand but it is easily rectified when you shift that trust to the Divine. In Divine trust there is only awakening, kindness and everlasting love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you know within that you are living in Divine love, no matter what happens in the outer world becomes insignificant in relation to whom and what you truly are; Divine love! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The more precise you are in everything you do the more precise your Divine purpose unfolds in Divine order. Why? Because the care in which you measure out your talents, skills and abilities, is the care in which your Divine purpose is measured back to you.  Simply, methodically and perfectly. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If worrying solves nothing, then trusting solves everything! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you seek to live from the perfection within you will express that perfection when you share Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
Thanx to Anna Lieb for inspiring this post!

The truth is that we are perfectly created beings that don't realize that we are co-creators with the Divine and we choose to separate ourselves from that perfection by the beliefs we hold as true. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you truly discover that everything you know you want out of life is already there within you, you will elevate your heart to the level of Divine love where you simply allow it to happen. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you choose and follow up by letting go, things happen that you've never considered! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The support and encouragement of a good friend does more for your heart than any transitory illusion of peace and happiness. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Real friends are the living reminders of just who we are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The moment you decide to say no to what hinders you and yes to what encourages you, is the moment that becomes the turning point of your life. Remember that point, reflect on it and make every moment as precious as that moment. Every moment and every breath is a gift; be thankful and grateful for those gifts from the Spirit of God within you and rise above the din of perceived chaos and lack of fulfillment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When we all stop supporting the greedy entrepreneurs, business people, businesses and corporations, we lessen the collective greed in the world. Then, we are moving in the right direction. If we refuse to buy their products and services then they will go out of business and receive the verdict of the people for their aberrant and selfish behaviors. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

We all owe a debt of gratitude and support to all of those who put their lives on the line for us. Thanks to all of our Veterans who put their country above all else. Whether you believe in the wars or causes they fought in or not, they stepped out of themselves to protect all of us. Be grateful for their sacrifices and be thankful to them for their courage. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Sticking with what you believe will work over what you know that works can yield some interesting results. Whether the results are favorable or not you will definitely learn something new every time you make a calculated risk. The more you learn about the problems you are facing the more options are available on your palette to create a resounding portrait of the solution. Learning what doesn’t work always helps you in getting closer to what works when you pay attention to the unfolding results. Pay attention; you can always afford to pay attention! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When a child is hungry pomp and circumstance means nothing! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Where were you when your heart needed mending? Were you there in that moment or were you blaming someone else for putting you there? Were you taking responsibility for your actions or inactions or were you looking outside of yourself for the understanding of why it was happening?

Expending mental and emotional energy in dwelling on the past or being unsure of the future is NOT the answer. Being here in the moment and being thankful for your experience transcends the pain in your heart and opens up the flow of love to your being.

Allow the greater part of you to guide the lesser part of you and feel the healing of Divine love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
