No matter how many unanticipated impediments, blockages of surprise or inherent distractions present themselves to me on my path I will completely trust in the Divine to bless me, guide me and protect me.

I am always one with my inner well-being and I will allow it to unfold my Divine purpose in Divine order to express Divine love everlasting! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Stephen Covey: Story At Sea


The more I come to understand what I have learned in life the more I come to know that everything that I have learned was for a purpose in order for me to understand just how things are.

Wisdom comes from understanding that knowledge exists for the behaviors of things, objects or others and understanding your Divine purpose comes from living regularly in your inner well-being.

Go within and bask in the beauty of Divine love each and every day. Wisdom will teach you that you were created for a Divine purpose and that doing anything other than that is a waste of your precious life.

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

Knowledge is the acquaintance with facts, truths, or principles, as from study or investigation of information; it is the fact or state of knowing; the perception of fact or truth from understanding.

Wisdom living in a state of being where you know that knowledge is associated with the behavior of objects, things and others and your Divine purpose comes from your inner state of well-being.

Let go of that which deceives you from the truth of your blessings and you will be free to experience those blessings completely! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Atheism is a belief system just like religion. It has dogma, condescension and attitudes.

When you base reality on what you sense only, you are NOT seeing the entire picture.

How can you understand life completely when you limit your scope of reality only to what you sense as being real? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Facts are raw data that are perceived as information. Perceptions are skewed by beliefs, whether erroneous or accurate.

Truth is not based on what is observed; it is based on what is known to be true within in relation to what is observed without.

Truth can become belief but belief is not necessarily truth.

Only when expressions of belief are repeatedly proven universally do they become truth; and even then, they are subject to ongoing challenges. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Anytime anything is observed, perceived and believed it is within the realm of a belief system. Science is predicated on what you sense and what you sense is limited.

Religion is predicated on what you believe and what you believe is limited as well. Stop looking at life based on your beliefs and go within to know your inner well-being.

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

I had to study the Aramaic, Koine Greek and Latin in seminary school in order to translate what was actually said in the Bible and NOT what some preacher with his head up his ass 'interpreted' what was said.

I have spent my whole life immersed in the 'Word' and have come to the conclusion that it was a fabrication of unscrupulous men and NOT God's word!

When you put Literary Authoritarianism over the love of God and humankind you are NOT operating from the Spirit of God. Say what you want about me; I don’t care!

I KNOW that the love of God is within each and every one of us and I will NOT be stymied by some preacher with an attitude of superiority concerning his ‘knowledge’ of ‘God’s word’.

When you listen to the ‘interpretation’ of someone else over the still small voice of the Spirit of God within, you truly have some serious psychological problems.

I suggest you go to a mental health professional and try to work them out. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Aum means everything and nothing simultaneously from within to without. Oneness is the immanence of the Divine permeating all of life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

There are children in this world that are being forced to do things against their wills. We are adults and it is our duty to protect them! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Be Ye Therefore Perfect! by Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Only when you have a mind that can discern reality can you see the truth. If you're too wrapped up in your own belief system to see the truth, then only you can break down the veil of the perceived dualistic reality and come to know Divine stillness, silence and presence.

When you are within a system based on what you sense you can’t go beyond that system by using your senses. Gödel's incompleteness theorems prove why any assessment of reality based on our senses is erroneous. Any belief system, whether scientific, religious, atheistic or spiritual, cannot demonstrate its own consistency from within that system.

It is only when you go beyond beliefs into Divine knowingness can you get out of the veil of belief systems to come to know your true inner well-being. The Divine is truly transcendent and immanent simultaneously; you must go within and experience your inner well-being to know the truth of reality.

Be ye therefore beyond self-imposed limitations! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you argue for that which denies the possibility of the existence of reality beyond your scope of revelation, it is your ego that is in command and NOT the Spirit of God. Ego divides to ensure its self-survival at all costs.

The Spirit of God unites to ensure our collective survival, the ability to share Divine love and to thrive in our lives completely. When your life is based on a rigid belief system it is you who is NOT listening to the subtleties of the omniverse.

It is you who has taken a stance based on your observations, perceptions and beliefs. It is you who has sacrificed knowing for believing. Be responsible for your actions and inactions as well as being accountable for the fruit you bear or do not bear.

Only then will you come to the realization that your ego ‘ain’t all that’! If it were, you would be listening to your inner well-being and living in health, wealth, prosperity and abundance by demonstrating peace, understanding, joy and Divine love. Period. End of discussion! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


In the study of what we term ‘reality’, there are two major ways of examining it as being proactive/reactive and infinite/limited.

Unconditioned Reality (UR) is reality that has no cause and cannot be composed of any parts, whether being perceived as material or non-material.

Conditioned reality (CR) “depends on at least one other reality in order to exist at any given moment of its existence. An everyday example of a conditioned reality is a cat whose existence depends on the existence of cells and the structure of cells…every Conditioned Reality is an effect of its cause(s) – the reality(s) it depends upon in order to exist.

However, there are two types of causation – essential causation and accidental causation.” [Imām Shāh Karīm al-Ḥusaynī Āgā Khān IV]. When you base your reality on what you observe, perceive and conceive, you are operating from the reflections of existence in the perceived dualistic reality. When you base your reality on what you discern, divine and realize, you are operating from the projections of existence that cause the illusion of motion in the perceived dualistic reality.

Are what we observe externally based on an Unconditioned Reality or a Conditioned Reality? Does God exist as the Infinite Creator Spirit that projects all of our perceived reality? Or do things just unfold as they are by ‘accident’? It has always been said in logic that you cannot prove an argument with a negative. Some say It can:. Can you prove to me that God doesn’t exist? Or that the Divine Infinite Spirit Creator does exist?. When reality is subjective to your perceptions of it you have lost the argument before it has started. Look at reality ‘how it is’ more than ‘how you BELIEVE it is’ and you will not be fooled by the shadows of its existence. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


If the truth is not working with the public, then what does that mean? The public is too stupid to pay attention? Or are they just too complacent and comfortable in their mediocrity to read the signs?

Public opinion has nothing to do with verifiable facts. Stop watching corporate news and seek out the truth.

We are in this together and if you don’t do your part, then please don’t proselytize me by parroting bullshit! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


As long as we allow anyone to disrespect and violate the rights of anyone we are speaking volumes about ourselves. When anyone hurts another, whether human or animal, and we do nothing to stop it, correct it or bring attention to it, we are complicit in its proliferation.

Always put yourself in the shoes of another and say, “How would I feel if this was happening to me?” If you feel that it is wrong, then do something about it! If you do nothing, you are living in fear and NOT sharing Divine love.

Quit fooling yourself with the safe position of saying, “I will pray for them.” Say that, but move your feet to participate in ending all atrocities against ALL of life. Be ye therefore respectful of life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Slavery was proliferated by the writing of Paul the Apostate! He followed the established order of things Hebraic; women as chattel and nubians as slaves.

History reveals that anything that oppresses human rights is contradictory to the love of God.

Go ahead, argue for that which denies love and you will reap what you sow; rest assured! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.




Always be thankful for your blessings. The peace and security you now feel could change at any moment.

Allow your well-being to bathe you continuously in Divine love and feel the blessings of life.

You are the Divine in action; know that you are worthy of the best despite what you feel, what others say and what appears to be.

Trust always in the Divine and you will be bathed in Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore thankful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.



Consultation with Dr. Dean




Take a moment to remember just who you are. A divine creation of light channeling Divine love with each and every breath, thought, idea, feeling, belief, action and behavior.

The degree to which that Divine love affects the omniverse is in direct proportion to how well you get out of your own way. Identify with the Spirit of God within and flow that which edifies, blesses and fulfills everything everywhere.

You are a part of this vast omniverse and your choices affect how we all grow and expand together. Be responsible and accountable for your experiences and choose to be that channel of Divine love everlasting.

You are here to choose that which edifies? Why aren’t you in each and every moment? Be ye therefore edifying! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


An idea comes to mind; a bit of energy opening in your awareness. If it is intriguing to you, you think about its possibilities. You choose to either reject it or accept it as being real to you. If your reject it, it dissipates into oblivion. It you accept it, you concentrate on its possibilities and contemplate its probabilities, giving mental energy to it.

You have made a decision to entertain its experience in your mind. Now is the critical point; in order to create the idea you must visualize the end result and experience the feelings from ‘seeing’ the end result. If it feels good to you then you add emotion to it and give it more energy.

If you internalize it repeatedly, it becomes a part of your belief system. When you choose to manifest it, you initiate the action by pushing the snowball (the idea) over the edge of the cliff. As the snowball picks up more snow on its journey down the hill it gains momentum. The idea grows from a small seed into a fulfilled manifestation; all because you added energy to it every step of the way.

Life IS the expression of the energy known as Divine love. When you share Divine love you seed more and more ideas that start the cycle of growth and expansion over and over again. It is an ongoing process of beauty. Be ye therefore a change agent of energy. It is then that you are truly participating in the growth and expansion of life! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Divine purpose is the fundamental tone in our lives. Through Divine understanding we come to know Divine will. When we combine our Divine purpose with Divine will we live in the harmony of Divine order.

How do we attain Divine understanding? By sharing Divine love with everything in our environment. Knowing and allowing Divine love to move through us into our world is the key to creating harmony in the omniverse.

Are you creating beauty or running from it? Have you given up on listening to the symphony of life because you are entrenched in the noise of chaos? You can easily and effortlessly tune in to your inner well-being each and every day to strike a chord of eternal harmony.

Go within to your center of inner peace and feel your inner well-being. Understand that you were created to live in joy; not disharmony. Live from the Divine love within you and co-create a symphony of beauty that all can appreciate. Be ye therefore harmonious! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Homes For Cats


On the next Fourth of July remember the Founding Mothers who bore their children and worked hard at home while they were considered ‘chattel’ by the Founding Fathers. Remember their struggle for independence to be treated as individuals and not identified as being just baby making machines by men.

Remember their fight to be able to vote. Remember the women’s movement that helped define that women are people too. Women are mothers to all of us whether they have bore children or not. Their ability to think and feel beyond chemical influences that men cannot affords us all the blessing to slow down and re-examine where we are going and why we are going there.

As we all embrace the female understanding of life let’s all know that we live in a time where we need female leadership. When we elect responsible women to lead us, we will be marching boldly into the future of equanimity for all. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If you only knew just how precious you are. With every breath you move the omniverse forward into growth and expansion.

You live in a living and breathing environment co-created by what you feel is true to you. Stop feeling the negative and embrace the positive outcomes that add to life.

It is then you will realize just how precious you truly are! Be ye therefore precious! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When your motive for charity is to make yourself 'look good' to others, that's hardly something to recognize! Is your desire to help others a genuine intention? Or is it simply to make others look at you favorably?

If it is genuine, then the Spirit of God is guiding you and if it isn’t, then your ego has tricked you into believing that somehow you are better than anyone else.

The ego always directs attention to itself and the Spirit of God directs attention to others. Be ye therefore centered in the Spirit of God! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.



It always amazes me how some perceive the truth as a 'bunch of crap' just because it is contrary to their learned beliefs.

It’s amazing how ego will defend its beliefs at all costs! The truth never needs a defense.

It is known by and stands on its own merits; whether anyone ‘believes’ it or not! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Consultation with Dr. Dean



Theories based on unobserved and un-evaluated criteria are consistent more with agenda manifestation than fact. Keep nay-saying while the water rises and the globe warms.

No worries though; when you need to get on my raft I will help you on despite your denials. However, if too many come on, we'll all be back in the water. Saying no to the facts doesn’t stop them from progressing into their inevitable manifestations.

Accepting their possible manifestation allows us to change our behaviors to avoid too much of a negative impact from their occurrences. Be ye therefore informed enough and smart enough to stop denying the inevitable. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Should we ignore ignorance? Do we allow it to grow by saying nothing? If we call it out for what it is are we giving power to it or just revealing its negative message? If we ignore what it does to those who believe it, we are turning our backs on its wanton proliferation.

By heralding its ignorance, we diffuse its ability to deceive those of us who are less discerning than others! We have a duty to the truth to focus on its message more than ignorance. If we sit by idly and do nothing it reveals that we have no stake in the game at all and truly are NOT sharing Divine love.

Sharing Divine love means being honest, truthful and giving to all with Divine essence, presence and resonance. Speak the truth despite the ignorance of those who ‘believe’ lies. Walk in Divine love despite the haters and backbiters.

Live in Divine order despite those who choose to create chaos. Be ye therefore NOT ignorant!  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


What a crock! The next level? What is that? The one you just came from? If you believe this garbage then you are resisting ignorance more than you realize. When you ignore ignorance, neglect negativity and disregard disrespect, you are resisting well-being.

Well-being allows ignorance to exist and does not resist its existence; however, it changes your focus from fighting to the awareness ‘of’ its existence and what you CAN do in order to deal with it effectively. The same goes for negativity and disrespect. Allow their existence without attaching any reactive emotions to them.

If you do, you are buying into fighting and resisting more than acclimation and allowance. Living in well-being means that you proact more than react. You allow more than resist. You live and let live and draw attention to the truth more than the lies. Be ye therefore aware! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


How’s this? Until you can be selfish enough to be ignorant, neglectful enough to be negative and disregarding enough to be disrespectful, you’re not ready for the next level.

Weakness isn’t for the successful because they depend too much on their egos to realize that being weak is a result of not being able to understand their own power from the spirit within.

When the weak align with spirit, it is then that the ego takes the back seat to control, domination and manipulation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Atheists have never burned anyone at the stake literally; however, when they declare their opinion to be correct over yours they are burning your perception of divinity and denying your experience of it as well.

When declaring that your opinion is more correct than anyone else’s, you are, in effect, being more concerned about your motives than ever taking anyone else’s into account.

Selfishness decries collective consideration and reveals the need to manifest their personal agenda over a collective understanding and integration of knowledge more than belief.

Be ye therefore careful of those who use ego to justify their beliefs more than knowing the truth. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Only when we completely strip ourselves of erroneous beliefs will we be able to experience the simplicity, congruity and flexibility of Divine love. Religious and atheistic beliefs allow us to identify choices that others have made in ingesting ‘good’ or ‘bad’ fruit. Scientific and agnostic beliefs allow us to identify choices made in the evaluation of environmental experimentation that has determined the perception of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ fruit.

Beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts that we accept as true. When we base our lives on ‘beliefs’ we are not acknowledging the possibility that some of them are erroneous and affect the unfolding of our Divine purposes in Divine order. Divine love is at the very core of our being.

Just as we eat the fruit to gain nutritional sustenance and throw away the rind which is inedible, we sometimes toss out the baby with the bathwater. Within the rind are the seeds (baby) of regeneration which, when ingested by the earth, germinate and grow into the trees that again bear more fruit. It is in our choices of ‘recognition’ that we come to know what works and what doesn’t. Probabilities only occur when possibilities are recognized as fruit.

If we don’t see any value in something then we will ignore its possibilities. Ignore the possibilities, then you’ll minimize the probabilities. Focus on reality without any pre-conceived notions and you will be allowing the truth to become manifest in your life. Let go of erroneous beliefs and embrace your inner divinity. God is within you right now bathing you with truth, beauty and Divine love everlasting.

It is in your choices that you do not experience that which you already have. Go within by clearing your mind and opening your heart to Divine love. Your Divine purpose will unfold in Divine order with each and every breath of Divine truth that comes from living in Divine love. Be ye therefore divine! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What is the process of learning the truth? Is it something you sense, intuit, think about or feel? Is it varying combinations of these ways of experiencing reality? Furthermore, are our attitudes toward the external world and our attitudes concerning how we live our lives from our inner world revealing whether we are living from our egos or from the Spirit of God?

Carl Jung delineated a system of looking at how we interact with our environments. We are either extraverting or introverting and move between these two states in experiencing reality. Following is an explanation of his observations with my additions of the mental and spiritual senses that don’t ‘appear’ to be physical:

Extraverting and Introverting

When you deal with the world outside of yourself, you are extraverting. Associated activities are: talking to other people, listening to what others are saying, carrying out mundane activities and performing tasks for a desired purpose. When you deal with the activities of thoughts and ideas in your mind, you are introverting. Associated activities are: reading a book, thinking about what you want to say or do, being aware of how you feel and thinking through a problem in order to understand it. A balance between extraverting and introverting keeps us in sync with our body and mind.

Sensing and Intuiting

When you sense something you use your five physical senses to see, hear, smell, taste or touch something. Associated activities are: tasting food, noticing changes in your environment, memorizing items and following steps in a plan. When you intuit something you generate abstract possibilities from gathered information beyond your five physical senses; mentally (psychically; 6th sense) or spiritually (7th sense). Associated activities are: coming up with new ways of doing things, thinking about future implications of current actions or inactions, perceiving underlying meanings and motivations of what people say or do and seeing the bigger picture. When you are relying solely on your five physical senses you are ‘extraverting’ and when you rely on more than your five physical senses and utilize your 6th and 7th senses you are ‘introverting’. A balance between sensing and intuiting keeps us in sync with our inner and outer environments.

Thinking and Perceiving

When you think about something you are using your mental processes of logic and reason derived from your physical observations and subsequent perceptions of your environment. Associated activities are: researching options and determining who has a stake in the game concerning the presentation of facts, doing the right thing whether or not we like it, choosing not to overindulge and establishing guidelines and methods for performing actions and behaviors. When we feel about something we are using our pre-programmed beliefs (6th sense) or spiritual values (7th sense) to make decisions that affect our well-being and the well-being of others. Associated activities are: deciding to do something because we like it, refraining from saying something that will upset others, deciding to not do something because of the ‘vibe’ of the environment and deciding to be in proximity of loved ones. A balance between thinking and feeling keeps us in sync with our logical conclusions, reasonable assumptions, emotional beliefs and spiritual values.

Judging and Perceiving

When you judge something you are using your own standards of thinking, feeling, believing, speaking, acting and behaving to determine what others ‘should’ be doing to be accurate, factual, orderly and resolved. Associated activities are: making ‘things to do’ lists, scheduling things in advance, forming and expressing judgments on others behaviors and bringing closure to an issue so that you can move on. When you perceive something you are being flexible and spontaneous to your experiences in your environment. Instead of ‘judging’ thing on your own standards, you ‘discern’ things based on ‘how they are’ and not how you ‘believe they ‘should’ be’. Perceivers allow things to be ‘open-ended’ without having to be resolved. Associated activities are: postponing decisions to be open to other options and possibilities, acting spontaneously, deciding what to do as you are doing it (as opposed to doing it with a plan; ‘riding the crest of the wave’, so to speak) and doing things at the last minute. A balance between judging and perceiving keeps us in sync with our own accepted standards and the standards of others that perhaps we haven’t considered that could yield more effective results in our lives.

Learning the truth requires us to be open and receptive to it. Following is a plan where we can all benefit from the discernment of the truth despite our ego’s yearnings to control, dominate and manipulate it to our own end

Question everything – Questioning our experiences is the heart of truth seeking. No matter what we experience we need to not jump to conclusions based on partial information. Always question authority, family, friends, co-workers, bosses, religious leaders; in other words, question all of our experiences because we don’t always see the entire picture.

Investigate the evidence – Go to the library after you search the Internet to determine whether the evidence we have discovered is viable, probable and mostly, factual. Don’t accept everything that we are told as being true as being true.

Consider the source – Who is funding the research studies that we have discovered that are presenting the ‘facts’ in a form that leads us to ‘logical’ conclusions? Do they have an agenda? If so, what is that agenda? If not, then why are they presenting these ‘facts’ in the first place?

Discern more than judge – Discernment has no personal agenda like judging does. Discerning means to evaluate the facts without a personal skew on whether or not the facts meet with our own personal value system.

Determine conclusions – After observing, perceiving and evaluating the facts ‘separate’ from our own belief and value systems, we can come to conclusions that are taking everyone into consideration.

By understanding how we interact with our environment in the gathering, evaluation and implementation of information, we can more effectively make sound decisions based on how these decisions affect everyone and NOT just ourselves.

We are NOT islands existing in a sea of delusion. We are interconnected, interdependent and interspersed with talents, skills and abilities that we all need to mutually survive, strive and thrive in our environment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Time is when your lease on now expires. ~J Ross Dock Hester

When we choose to be true to ourselves we sometimes lose focus as to where we are. It is inner guidance that allows our inner well-being to flourish despite feelings of 'not-knowing' where we are. We just have to allow the peace, understanding, joy and Divine love to flow from within to without. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What values are the most important to fulfilling your Divine purpose in Divine order? It’s simpler than you might think! Follow 'we' instead of 'me' for you to ‘see’ what you should ‘be’! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I am a human being endowed with feelings that should never be regulated by anyone else unless they violate life, love and the freedom to share. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The only place you truly ever find yourself is in Divine service to others. It is there that who you are aligns with what you should be. Give Divine love from your heart and share your inner well-being with others. That is the secret to complete and utter fulfillment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

I am blessed because I see the souls in all of God’s creatures and live in harmony with their presence! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The reflection of life sometimes hides what is not facing us directly. When this happens, look for the shadows cast from a different perspective. Shadows reveal what the eye cannot see! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you give up your beliefs Divine knowing guides you effortlessly with peace, understanding, joy and Divine love; supplying your needs, wants, desires and expectations eternally! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

When you allow that which edifies your being to grow and expand from you it reveals that your intention is pure, divine and honest. When you don't, your intention is more self-serving than self-integrating. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Science: Because religious dogma doesn’t reveal the entire truth; and due to that fact, we can explain things in terms of our limited senses that make sense to us and hardly anyone else. Yeah, that works! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

You have been blessed with a perfect divine being. Why would you allow what you think and believe to defile God’s perfection? When you mar what is divinely perfect, it is your ego that is out of control! Allowance of the divine perfection within prevents defiling one's body for egotistical pleasure. All else is ego. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Victory over fear, infirmity and pain comes when you leave the battle against it and stop fighting its reality. The Divine is within you in your heart and is healing you now by you completely trusting in Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
