If someone has already made up their mind about someone, no matter how much evidence to the contrary you present, they will dismiss your evidence as tainted and designed to manipulate their opinion. Why are some people so rigid in their thinking? Is it truly because their argument is cogent and factual? Or is it because they have assimilated their individual prejudices into their belief system which resides in their subconscious mind and co-creates their reality?

If you present the FACTS and they still won’t budge due to their expressive posturing, then you are dealing with their egos and NOT the spirit within. The Spirit of God within each one of us ALWAYS seeks the truth while the ego seeks its own survival at ALL costs; even to the point of controlling, dominating or manipulating the facts to protect its own delusion of self-survival. Opinions are then formed from the ‘beliefs’ we accept as true. It is demonstrated by the fact that most people DON’T think, they emotionally react to what they perceive as either harmful or helpful to them.

When a level headed thinker and planner steps into a leadership position and takes his time to make decisions, those who emotionally react are in an uproar. Case in point: Obama and the Republican rhetoric that surrounds him. His record has shown true leadership and caring for the middle class. His experience as a community organizer demonstrates compassion and understanding. Yet, with these higher qualities of personhood, he gave the orders to attack the pirates, rescue the sailors, kill Bin Laden and step in to save the auto industry.

And still, there are those who refuse to admit the qualities of his leadership and don’t even know why. It is due to the deep seated prejudicial programming that has taken up residence in their subconscious minds and they react to him this way even though he has demonstrated quality leadership. When asked to supply the facts, some of these people have doctored the evidence to prove their point.

When someone is forced to lie like this, they are desperate and need to create some abject scenario to convince others of their veracity and exceptional leadership qualities. I’m sorry, anyone who straps a defenseless animal to the top of his car in a kennel traveling at 60 mph sucking the very breath out of the dog doesn’t give a rat’s ass about us. Mitt Romney, to me, is despicable and anyone who believes his horseshit is fooling themselves. Discern the FACTS and don’t allow your deep seated emotional agendas to control your ability to effectively discern reality.

Be good to yourself and others and seek the truth no matter what your beliefs and emotions tell you. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

The concept of SIN was invented by man to control, dominate and manipulate others. Jesus knew we could discard this concept when he stated, "Go and sin no more."

That implied that we could, yet many still believe they are sinners. It's like an alcoholic who says they will always be an alcoholic. It is resolving yourself to accept something negative that you were already told you had power over to correct.

Don't buy into the concepts that are learned behaviors without knowing what the consequences are or what the agendas were. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When someone isn’t successful in their attempt to control, dominate and manipulate you, the only way they can be successful is for you to throw in the towel and relent. How does someone get you to do this? By gently stroking your ego’s guilt mechanism with concepts that slowly but surely convince you that you have no power over what you have done and what you will do.

They use Literary Authoritarianism, charismatic preachers and people like you to ‘confess’ their sins before the world. This action is supposed to free you from ‘guilt’ but in reality perpetuates guilt. Being free from guilt requires you to understand that you are a being of Light, a child of the Most High God and a vessel of love. Anything else is utter and complete HOGWASH! Sin is set up for you to ‘buy into that concept’ in order for you to be controlled. Once you relent to the control of a book, concept or person, the next step is for your thoughts to be dominated with obeying who or what is controlling you.

Lastly, because you are convinced that what the book says, the concept reveals or the person bespeaks is true, you fall into the manipulation of your every action by these ‘things’ instead of allowing the Spirit of God to guide you. Reject what all of humankind says and embrace what God tells you. It is the difference between living in the darkness of ‘sin’ or living in the light of ‘communion’ with the Divine. Jesus said, “Go and sin no more!” Yet, we allow others to teach us that we cannot when in fact we can. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Every day we make the journey from resistance to rejection and from acceptance to allowance when we choose to express love into our world. When we choose to listen to the selfish voice within we move from allowance to acceptance and from rejection to resistance.

Where we operate from creates circumstances in our environment and we experience the feedback of that operation based on what we value in our experiences. Rejecting what doesn’t allow us to grow and expand is demonstrating faith in the Divine and love for ourselves and others.

Allowing what we have rejected that stifles our growth and expansion demonstrates fear, selfishness and a lack of concern for others. Reject what distances you from the Divine and allow what brings you into Oneness.

This is the process of peace, understanding and joy that comes from expressing the love of God to everything in creation. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

An idea whose time is come: We need to be living with the equality of opportunity to be who and what we are as long as it doesn't interfere or inhibit the lives of others. The world is full of liars. If you are not sure how to spot a liar, apply this simple test. Does this person want my money? Does this person want my vote? Is this person staring at my tits? If any of these answers are yes, odds are the person is lying to you. And if the answers are no, the person is lying and is really good at it! ~Bill Maher

When our learned opinions are based on the perceptions of others and their personal beliefs and agendas, we are denying ourselves the opportunity to interact with those whom we can learn from, associate with and eventually become friends. When the walls of racial and social constructs are removed, the only thing left is the fact that we are all people who simply appear different on the surface but are united within by the Spirit of God. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

SIN: It only works when your guilt does. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Make no mistake. Loving God means unconditionally loving the presence of God within you and others no matter what we experience from our reactions and the reactions of others. It means acknowledging that presence, recognizing its power of love and sharing that power to enrich your life and the lives of others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Frustration is a good thing! It means that you are coming to the end of dealing with something that isn't working. Frustration will drive you to make new choices to lead you away from frustration. Follow your heart and the road will be paved with love. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Religion is like a suit that's fits you well at one point until you either gain weight or lose weight and it no longer fits. If your religion doesn't allow for you to grow and expand either inward or outward then it's time to buy a new suit.

I am where I am because I am. ~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.” Jesus, Luke 6:38.


It never ceases to amaze me that when small minds are confronted with the facts and incontrovertible evidence, they back pedal to embracing the status-quo like it's perfect that way it is.

When you are blinded by your own individual prejudices and misguided trust in a system that has so many flaws, then it's about time you wake up to the cold hard reality that because you are a certain 'color', you are thought to be guilty before even being arrested, tried or even convicted.

How many people are currently sitting in jail right now because they were simply 'black' and at the wrong place at the wrong time? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.



Every thought you think projects electromagnetic energy into your reality and reflects back to you what you have created in thought. Every word you speak creates an external mechanical vibration that sets the tone for your reality and reflects back to you what you have created in sound. Every action you take creates a movement in the unseen sea of energy that reflects back to you what you have moved toward; either positive or negative. Every behavior you have expressed creates ripples in the unseen sea of energy that reflects back to you what you have put into motion.

Everything you think, say, act upon and express moves the unseen forces of the omniverse to carry out your commands; whether you are conscious of them or not. This is how the omniverse works; introspection, projection, reflection and absorption. It is a process that is ongoing throughout infinity. Scientific observation has come to understand and accept this model because the apparent visible and non-visible omniverse is never as absolute as the mathematical formulas we use to explain its operation. The phenomenon of ‘dark flow’ is one of these observations that defy the current understanding of our omniverse.

These observations are based on what is sensed by the observer. Our senses don’t completely reveal all of the expressions of the omniverse. They are limited to ‘ranges’ of frequency input for each individual sense. The eyes ‘see’ between 4 billion to 7 billion cycles per second. The ears ‘hear’ between 20 to 20,000 cycles per second. The other senses operate in other frequency ranges lower than 20 cycles per second. What about energy frequencies beyond 7 billion cycles per second or are fractional under 1 cycle per second? We cannot sense these frequencies but they still exist!

Energy harmonics have demonstrated their existence. To the best observations to date, we live in a dodecahedron (12 sided) omniverse that is perceived as flat and linear but in reality is round and infinite. The end of our universe within the omniverse is the beginning of even more universes as observed by the cold spot in the WMAP of the omniverse.

As our knowledge grows up from observation, collation and speculation and expands into wisdom by using intuition, understanding and inner perception, we will begin to see how everything we think, say, act upon or do influences our environments as much as it influences us. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When are you going to get around to ‘living’ in an ongoing dynamic state of your Divine purpose? Is it after you make the time for it? After you learn about it? After you ‘do’ something you think you have to do in order to be worthy to live your Divine purpose. Let’s get one thing straight.

THERE IS NOTHING YOU HAVE TO THINK, SAY, ACT UPON OR DO TO LIVE IN YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE! It simply is and has always been there within you as a seed of possibility. You must ALLOW it to grow and expand within you until it manifests in your outer world. You do this by getting out of your own way through nurturing your center of peace every day. As the awareness of the Spirit of God blossoms within you, wonderful things are set in motion.

The power of Divine love bathes your being with health, wealth, prosperity and abundance and your seed of possibility grows into a flower of probability. The manifestation and actualization of your Divine purpose is now on automatic. The more you dip into the well of peace, the more you express what you were created to be; a being of light and a child of the Most High expressing love into reality! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Ego is made of 6 primary ingredients that account for how we experience ourselves as disconnected.

By allowing ego to determine your life path, you deactivate the power of intention.

EGO separates us from God.

Here are the 6 ego beliefs…

1 I am what I have,~ my possessions define me.

2 I am what I do, ~ my achievements define me.

3 I am what others think of me, ~ my reputation defines me.

4 I am separate from everyone, ~ my body defines me as alone.

5 I am separate from all that's missing in my life, ~  my life space is disconnected from my desires.

6 I am separate from God, ~ my life depends on God’s assessment of my worthiness.”

(Dr. Wayne Dyer, The Power of Intention & The Shift)

Quotes by Dr. Dean


It is in the human psyche to attack that which you believe you don't or cannot have when you allow your ego to control your life completely.

When we compare ourselves to someone we don't like and they have accomplished more than we have, there is a 'tendency' to reject that person based on who and what they represent; an ongoing reminder that we haven't done what we believe we needed to do with our lives.

When we allow the Spirit of God to guide our lives we become open to what is best for ourselves AND others. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


People who reveal the lies of others are not necessarily judging others, hating others or 'not being spiritual' to others; they are lovers of the truth, they choose to live in the truth and that's why they speak it and reveal those who don't! To be honest and forthright with the truth you must follow it no matter what anyone else thinks, say, or does. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Prayer is asking the Divine to intercede in the natural order and development of our perceived problems and to bring about favorable results in Divine order. It is the release of our limited perceptions of events, occurrences, situations, circumstances and people that appear as problems to our inner need for the growth and expansion of our Divine purpose. It is based on the recognition of the Divine as the source of everything, our desire to communicate with the Divine and our expectation that we will be given an answer.

Meditation is the process of us stepping out of the apparent chaos and unsurety and entering a place of peace where we relax enough to experience the inner peace of the Divine. From this peace we feel the love of the Divine by immersing ourselves in the presence regularly. Our inner perceptions hear the still small voice of God guiding and directing us to the answers we seek. We then begin to understand those answers and feel the joy of the Divine communicating with us.

We have now asked the Divine for answers and intervention and have sought and listened to the guidance in how to proceed. What do we do next? We knock on the door that now opens to affect the solutions by sharing our talents and abilities in loving service.

Service to others is what defines us. It is putting the love of the Divine into action. Love without sharing is not love at all! Clean and organize your home, neighborhood and community by sharing what you have been blessed with and you will perpetuate a chain of love that will ripple throughout our world collectively.

Successful living requires that we take what we have been graciously given and share it with others. It is participating in life and not watching it go by passively. It is being active in your edification; active in your relaxation; and active in your integration with all of life. We are NOT islands unto ourselves! We are the ocean expressed through each one of us. We share our humanity and we share Divine love.

Prayer is directive thinking towards an end that we desire. Meditation is directive listening to receive inner guidance. Service is directive action that takes what we have desired and what we have learned in how to proceed and puts it into reality. When prayer, meditation and service are all practiced effectively, we establish and maintain direct communication with the Divine. We have accessed the source of all creation and the result is an inner peace, a complete understanding of reality and the joy of living. They are truly the keys to successful living! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Are you feeling the blessings of the Divine? Do you feel the Divine presence of love? Is it flowing throughout your being with scintillating grace? If you aren’t you are allowing your lower self to believe it is in control.

You are moving toward and experience of Divine separation instead of Oneness. This is a benchmark for you to take action. Focus on what is truly important; sharing Divine love through your being into your world. Open the channel by clearing out the garbage of selfish thinking and recognize your inner divinity.

Be true to whom and what you are and you WILL experience the peace, understanding and joy of the Divine within as you experience health, wealth, prosperity and abundance every day of your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
