It is that which you willingly separate yourself from that keeps eluding you. When you put that which is already yours outside of yourself you are telling the omniverse that you don’t know it is already yours.

You are sending the message that you ‘believe’ that it is not within your ‘grasp’ to attain it and that you must ‘do’ something to ‘have’ it.

Stop isolating yourself from all that is within you already and be that which you are; a dynamic co-creator of your reality by allowing your greater good to flow through you unfettered by any thoughts and feelings of separation.

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

I AM Like
by Stephen "Katriel' Wise


Every time you tell yourself that you are not perfect, you are denying that you are a child of the Most High and elevating your ego as judge, jury and executioner. Embrace the fact that you are PERFECT as you are and the Divine NEVER makes mistakes.

It is your EGO that makes mistakes by denying your Divine perfection. Saying “I am not perfect” is creating the condition where you aren’t and the more you do this the more you will believe this to be true. It is an erroneous belief that you have programmed into your mind and heart that does NOT serve you and others.

Stop denying that which YOU are and embrace your Divine perfection. When you do, your life will be a reflection of that perfection in every breath that you take and every moment you share Divine love. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Our understanding of life is based on our 'beliefs', whether religious or scientific in origin. Beliefs are repeated thoughts that come from sensory observation, electro-chemical perceptions and formulated 'opinions'.

Whether we are here through intelligent design or just 'happy accidents' doesn't really matter.

What matters is that we come to ‘know’ just whom and what we are in relation to all of life without basing it on what others ‘believe’.  ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Atheism is a 'belief system' that attributes order from chaos without intelligent design. Random astronomical occurrences are beyond probability. Most astrophysicists/mathemati-cians understand this quite clearly, yet hardly speak of it because of the pressure from the scientific community contrary to intelligent design.

Every law of physics has a mathematical correlation that exists as the information associated with the action. Random occurrences? Perhaps; but highly unlikely. Understanding the patterns of expression in the perceived dualistic reality leads only to intelligent design. Fostering ‘belief systems’ based on sensory observation, human perception and limited opinions only convolute what is so simple that most cannot see.

All belief systems, including religions and atheism are dependent upon human consciousness, which view a limited experience of the entire cosmos. To rely solely on that as a guide for understanding, lends itself to relying not only on valid beliefs, but erroneous ones as well. Go to the Source of well-being and experience the entirety of Divine love everlasting. Only then will you ‘see’ from the ‘eyes’ of omniversal understanding and not the ‘eyes’ of limited vision. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I have been accused of displaying clear evidence of distrust in Divine Order and my fellow man. I was asked by a friend, “Where's your Faith?” My faith is not predicated by the behaviors of the aberrant; it is ONLY in the Divine!

Conservatism is an antiquated and selfish doctrine based on one's ego; not on the community as a whole. Only when we learn to live with one another and depend on one another for strength and support will we truly be a progressive society.

Why go backwards into philosophical tenets that no longer work when we can move into a beautiful and cooperative future together? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Open your heart to the real you by allowing Divine love to bathe you with peace, understanding, joy and a fulfilled life.

Your well-being is always flowing through you until you stop up the dam with selfishness, distractions and erroneous beliefs.

Be that which you already are; an extension of Divine love in action! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

By loving what you hate you are pivoting your consciousness from a defensive posture of reaction to an offensive one of proaction.

You are diffusing that which yearns to break down and are supporting that which desires to build up.

Stand firm with Divine love as your guide and you will live in peace, understanding, joy and Divine love everlasting!

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


I always invite intelligent discourse amid emotional posturing; how else will all of us learn from each other? We are all here to share our take on life with each other. We share our ups and downs, our ins and outs and our experiences of our inner and outer worlds. However, if I feel that someone is posturing based on opinion and not informed opinion, I WILL challenge it!

Not because I believe that I am the be all and end all of informed opinion; because I challenge anyone to set aside their established and erroneous beliefs in favor of Divine knowing. If the Divine leads you to believe and be passionate about something, research it thoroughly before you espouse it to anyone. If you don’t, you are operating from agenda manifestation of your ego and NOT the Spirit of God.

Whatever the Divine reveals will be repeatedly verified in your research and will bear out in many peoples’ life experiences; not just a select few who believe it will. Be more discerning and less judgmental; be more loving and less righteous; be more understanding and less posturing. We can and will learn from each other when we keep the door open inward to the truth. Be ye therefore open and discerning! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you dig deeper into the minuteness of the omniverse, you see the structure of reality from quantum movements to molecular bonding to fractal expressions. It is there when you look for it.

The omniverse is a symphony of chaos moving into order and back again. Some are worried that the galaxy of Andromeda is heading straight for us.

So what! It won't be here for a millions years or so and probably will pass right through us! Why worry about that which we have no control over instead of living in the moment for the blessings we all share and enjoy now! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Consultation with Dr. Dean


Are you willing to set aside what you believe is true in favor of what the Divine imparts to you as true?

If you are not, then you are being guided by your ego and NOT the Spirit of God. Truth arrives in many forms; some that we recognize and some that we don't.

If you deny truth in favor of what you believe is the truth, then you are NOT living in the spirit. Period. End of discussion. Peace. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Always remember just how precious and great you are. You are the crowning achievement of the omniverse crafted to look back on itself awe, wonder and love.

Be grateful for what you sense, feel, think and know. It is all designed to bring you back from whence you came; Divine love everlasting! Be ye therefore precious and great! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


A friend contends that I am ‘meddling’ is the conservative viewpoint of 'free will'; which, in actuality is ego reigning unfettered by mutual growth and expansion.

It is literally a 'con' game perpetrated by those selling everyone a bill of 'individuality' goods predicated on the ego maintaining control and NOT the Spirit of God.

Divine order unfolds for the betterment of ALL and NOT just for the betterment of the individual.

That's why conservative theory works only for ego dominated behavior and NOT for the collective of individuals. See what I mean? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Yesterday I mentioned that when you focus on the negative emotions of worry, doubt and fear, you are embracing problems and not the solutions of those problems. When you embrace a positive solution to a problem you are being pro-active. When you embrace problems as “the way it is” you are being negative. But why do you make these choices? It is because of what you value in life. I have included a link to a survey here for you to reveal to yourself exactly what your values are. Take the survey, send it to me, copy it to a text editor and I will reveal the overall results in a future article for everyone taking the survey. No names will be taken, just overall results.

What are values? They are a relative worth, merit, or importance you place on issues, events, situations and people in your life. Examples of positive values are cleanliness, freedom, education and/or community service, while negative values are cruelty, crime, blasphemy and/or just looking out for number one. Our survey will help you to determine what values are important to you. Do you express worry, doubt and fear in reaction to daily events in life or do you express confidence, certainty and faith?

Worry comes from a lack of confidence in what is going to happen next. If you embrace this lack of confidence it broadcasts this into your environment and you find issues, events, situations and people to help you support your assertions through the Law of Attraction. If you firmly believe you are a skeptic, you will find issues, events, situations and people to support you assertions because you not only believe in your convictions, but you emotionalize them with every encounter of those convictions. If you embrace uncertainty you enter into the realm of doubt. Finally, fear settles into your belief system and supporting evidence will abound. But remember FEAR’s acronym; False Evidence Appearing Real. The evidence that appears to support your feelings is based on the thoughts you have focused on and have manifested to create your current situation. You are caught in, what appears to be, and endless loop.

Fortunately, we don’t have to believe and emotionalize this endless loop. When you open your mind to other ways of manifesting your desired results and daily practice these ways, confidence in their results becomes apparent. As you make more and more advances you develop certainty in creating pro-active results. Finally, your confidence and certainty develops into faith. What is faith? Trust in something that cannot be proven through conventional means, i.e. our sensory world is what the modern dictionaries tell us. The original word for faith was the Greek word pistis, which means trust. Trust in the power of co-creation that God has given us. It was translated into the Latin word fides and its essential meaning was changed into requiring proof or evidence based on our senses.

In the New Testament, Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." It is a result of the confidence and certainty that you have the power to create your world daily. The evidence of this is not seen immediately, but you KNOW it is there. In James 2:20, he says, “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” If your faith, or trust in God’s laws is genuine, then it will manifest evidence that supports the goodness of God. If you manifest heartache, poverty and grief, are you truly trusting in God? Are you manifesting all that is wrong in your life? Find out what your values are and make an ongoing assessment of your progress toward creating the life that you want by instilling positive values that are life-giving. Daily practice of prayer, meditation and service will help you attain your deepest desires. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

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


Here is a subchapter from my book, Spiritual Growth. It is based on one of my all time favorite songs, "The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby and the Range...


Today we will examine a figure of speech that promotes the acceptance of things as the way they appear to be and simultaneously suggests that nothing can be done to change the outcome of these things. Bruce Hornsby and the Range released a song by this title in 1986 and the lyrics depicted a lily white attitude toward people of other races by trying to convince them that their social standing was the way it is. Following is a sample of the lyrics:


Standing in line marking time- 
Waiting for the welfare dime 
'Cause they can't buy a job 
The man in the silk suit hurries by 
As he catches the poor ladies' eyes 
Just for fun he says "get a job" 


That's just the way it is 
Some things will never change 
That's just the way it is 
But don't you believe them
©1986 Bruce Hornsby


Mr. Hornsby starts out by creating a picture of individuals who can’t afford to buy a job. They are waiting in the welfare line to be able to get the necessary things they need to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads. They don’t have a job because they either can’t find one or they don’t have the training or education to get a good job. The man who has a job or has money walks by in his silk suit and looks down on the poor lady and smugly says “get a job.” In other words, he makes a judgment about somebody he doesn’t even know as a person (and about their circumstances). The chorus echoes the futility he is trying to project to those whom he considers beneath him by implanting the thought of that’s just the way it is and that some things will never change. But is that true? Hardly! It is if the person listening to these statements accepts them as true and repeatedly harbors those thoughts. Mr. Hornsby leaves the chorus on a positive note with the statement “But don’t you believe them.” A very powerful and true statement.


How many of us have heard similar statements about our talents, abilities, or status in life and actually believed them; or even worse, never challenged them? Mr. Hornsby finishes with the last verse:

Well they passed a law in '64 
To give those who ain't got a little more 
But it only goes so far 
Because the law don't change another's mind 
When all it sees at the hiring time 
Is the line on the color bar

©1986 Bruce Hornsby

Here, Mr. Hornsby is referring to the landmark legislation known as The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (in the United States) that extended voting rights and outlawed racial segregation in schools, at the workplace and by facilities that served the general public (Source: Wikipedia). The U.S. Government’s attempt at leveling the playing field for non-whites was made a law, but it didn’t change the minds of those so pre-programmed to reject those who were a different race from them into hiring people of color. History has proven that you can change the laws but you can’t change what people accept and believe as true until they realize that their beliefs are based on prejudice; a system of thought and behaviors that are learned, usually from friends and family.

Prejudice is an unfavorable (or favorable) and preconceived opinion or feeling formed beforehand without knowledge, thought, or reason (dictionary.com). In other words prejudice is based on an opinion instead of fact. It is a supposition about someone that is not based on logic or reason. Those who accept some behavioral facts about another group of people and form opinions that everyone in that group manifests those particular behaviors are guilty of stereotyping. In other words, their behavior is the way it is. Bull!


Only those who accept another’s evaluation and subsequent judgments believe that things are the way they are and that they cannot be changed. Why would anyone with any intelligence buy into this malarkey? It gets back to the energy involved in choosing to think your way through to a conclusion or simply react to a set of circumstances. We are all guilty of holding onto beliefs that block the manifestation of our desires. We accept these beliefs as true without challenge.

How many times does something have to occur a certain way before you accept it as true? Once? Twice? Three times? Just because something happens three times doesn’t necessarily mean that it will always happen that way. If the same occurrence happened at a different time or location the results could be dramatically different. How would you know that unless you challenged your accepted belief and pursued another course of action? When the results you seek are not manifested, analyze what you have done and take another approach.


The only reason that events, circumstances and occurrences transpire in our lives is because we have given attention to them. But what about accidents? Did you leave your house today planning to get into an accident? Probably not, but what was your state of mind? Were you operating from fear or were you operating from a consciousness of faith? Your mindset has a lot to do with how you react to or pro-act in your environment. Did fear make you overly cautious or did faith make you overly confident?

If someone else arrives at a conclusion such as the way it is doesn’t mean that you have to accept it as true. If you do, you will subconsciously set out to confirm their beliefs. Since your attention is focused on these apparent facts, you will be more aware of re-occurring facts and give more attention to them. For example, scientific evidence shows that global warming is a reality. It reveals that climate change is occurring and that it will be hotter in the summer and colder in the winter. Weather will become more violent and the collated facts support this conclusion. Yet, U.S. Republican nay-sayers and delusional talk show hosts dispute this information to an unaware audience to pad their bottom line. The problem comes when interpreting the facts. Remember, fact becomes opinion when it is evaluated against an individual’s ego. It then becomes a judgment.


Whatever state we are in when we give our attention to something will accentuate the creation of subsequent events, occurrences and circumstances. If we are in a negative mind set our attention will accept the way it is and we will reject any way available to change the way it is. If we are in a positive mind set our attention will accept the way it will be and we will reject any way available to change the way it will be. It is a matter of choice for us to either accept or reject others’ opinions of reality. Why choose to be unfulfilled and unsatisfied in life? Why accept the unawareness of what other’s feel you need? Your imagination creates reality. God has given all of us the ability to imagine a better world and a better life. Choose to embrace the best for yourself and reject the opinions of those uninformed individuals who don’t have your best interests at heart. While you are accepting and believing their conclusions, they are fulfilling their dreams by stifling yours. Choose happiness and accomplishment. The rewards are yours if you give your positive attention to it and don’t accept the way it is.

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

Consultation with Dr. Dean


Do you feel as if your wings are broken? Do you feel that you can no longer take flight because you have lost something you thought you had to keep you soaring in the heavens?

Mend those broken wings by removing your erroneous beliefs of lack and limitation and embrace Divine abundance.

Soar in the heavens with your healed wings and fear not getting to close to the Sun.

Your wings are NOT repaired with melting wax but with Divine nectar! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When you spend your precious time arguing against the obvious physical laws of giving and reciprocity, it reveals that you have an agenda to be a recalcitrant for the sake of recalcitrancy and NOT for the facts as they are. It is ego that drives you and NOT the Spirit of God.

Do you walk into a dark room and turn on the ‘dark’ switch? Or do you turn on the ‘light’ switch? Or do you choose to remain in the darkness because you fear to even try?

Remember, “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness” (originally Peter Benenson in 1961 from an old Chinese proverb; attributed to Adlai Stevenson and John F. Kennedy as well).

When you accept the fact that you are living in darkness and you truly desire to live in the light you ‘choose’ to turn on the light switch and NOT curse the darkness.

You will always be known by the behavioral fruits that you bear MORE than by the thoughts that you think, the feelings that you feel, the beliefs you aspire to, the words that you speak and the actions that you take.

Be ye therefore a bringer of light! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Just like a vein of gold lies embedded in the hard rock, the vein of truth lies embedded in the hard beliefs that many covet in order to feel secure in whom and what they ‘think’ they are.

They use this vein of truth to reinforce their core beliefs by dressing up the beliefs with platitudes, circumstances and righteous behaviors in order to convince others of their apparent validity.

Only until we chip away at the stratum of hard rock do we ever get to the truth. Remove the window dressings and get to the real core of the truth by going within each and every day to immerse yourself in the cool lake of Divine consciousness.

The inner waters of truth will erode the harsh exterior to reveal your true ‘core’ values. You are NOT your beliefs! You are the Divine in action! Know it and value it! Be ye therefore valuable! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


To believe is to see and experience what you have convinced yourself is true without knowing whether or not it is true.

It is coloring reality to suit your own perceived needs more than participating in a shared reality that contributes to the growth and expansion of all.

Beliefs are selfish in nature while knowing is selflessness personified. Always know more than believe! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Those who stop at nothing to undermine our mutual growth and expansion are manifesting their beliefs despite facts to the contrary. Their over the top selfishness comes from their yearnings to control, dominate and manipulate that which they know they can’t.

This is why education in critical thinking is so important and that is why they are now doing whatever they can to defund and control what others believe. If you don’t know how to think you can be emotionally controlled by the beliefs of others that you adopt as your own. You are nothing more than an emotional construct of beliefs more than a living being who can decide to know the truth based on the irrefutable facts.

True freedom comes from knowing the truth, acting upon it and living in it while false freedom comes from the limited beliefs that you are free when in fact you are financial slaves to the whims of the plutocrats. Support education in critical thinking before they remove it completely from the schools. Stand firm on the truth and never allow those who have emotional manifest agendas from denying access to the truth for all! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


People that attempt to describe personal spiritual experiences as being dependent on finite and external values have no clue what they are talking about.

They are putting temporal and corporeal values on things that are not.

Speak with authority from within and not from what you believe without! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Waiting for the action to begin is like living in a quandary of immediate anticipation.

Anxious thoughts about inevitable transitions often preclude expected outcomes.

Remain focused on the joy and dismiss distractions into oblivion.

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

Is Living In Wealth Your Divine Right?

Custom Fine Art by F.R. Rittenhouse


What are emotions? The etymology of the word emotion is from the Latin emovere, which means to move out, move away, remove, stir up or agitate. Technically it means an individual’s internal state of being and all associated involuntary, subjective, and physiological responses to an object or a situation, based in or coupled with a physical state and sensory feelings. Emotions generally are a reaction to an event that occurs as a realization of something internal or to an external occurrence that an individual is sensitive to either by choice or previous experience.

Physiologically, our brains have acquired three components or layers over time. The reptilian, old mammalian and new mammalian. The basis of the reptilian brain is the fight or flight emotional reaction. Hormonally, it communicates directly to the adrenal glands by what is called adrenaline (epinephrine). It is inextricably attached to our olfactory (sense of smell) system. Smells are tied to the most basic of human emotions including our sex drives. Why do you think perfumes make such great aphrodisiacs? The old mammalian brain is layered over top of the reptilian brain and it comprises the structures of the limbic system, our physiological emotional center. Finally, the new mammalian brain is layered over top of the old mammalian brain and is divided into left (intellectual tasks such as reading, writing and performing mathematical calculations) and right (center of abstractive thought and creativity) hemispheres.

Our thoughts are a result of either electrical stimulus from our senses (through the sympathetic nervous system) that cause chemical interactions in our brains or chemical interactions that cause electrical stimulus (through the central nervous system) to our bodies. Again, emotions are reactions to either internal or external stimuli, first based on self-preservation, protection of family and then on individual reasoning.

According to the Law of Attraction the way you feel is your point of attraction. If you feel good about something, you are in harmony with you intentions. 

When you feel bad about something, you are not in harmony with your intentions. Being aware of your emotions or feelings is the first step in monitoring your point of attraction. Allow yourself to truly feel and you will be connected to a divine feedback system that tells you whether your point of attraction is positive or negative.

Focusing on your feelings allow you to know whether you are on the right path to self-actualization more so than focusing just on your thoughts. If you continually focus on your how you feel about your problems, then you are making your point of attraction about your problems and thus are creating more problems, and more negative emotions. It’s a downward spiral that can be turned around by you if you begin to feel good about how to solve your problems. These are constructive thoughts and feelings that are positive reactions to situations and thus change your point of attraction.

We all have this built in divine feedback system that allows us to check our thoughts and reactions if we but pay attention to it. Most people delight in their problems and wonder why they continually are barraged with more and more problems. It is because their point of attraction is focused on problems instead of solutions. Problems are necessary situations that by developing solutions allow us to change our point of attraction to actualize the best for us in our lives. How we react to problems is how they affect us. Strive for solutions in life and revel in the positive emotions that result instead of experiencing the negative emotions that result from focusing on the worries, doubts and fears that arise from embracing the problems.

Leave your prejudices, dogmas and erroneous beliefs at the door. You are welcome in my life when your mind and heart are open to learning, growing and expanding. If you aren’t, I wish you well on your path.

It is up to me to decide whom I interact with just as it is up to you to decide that as well. When someone is closed and unwilling to learn it reveals that they are secure in their comfort zone and don’t desire to break free from their self-imposed mediocrity. They view the world as they ‘believe’ it to be and not how it is.

I welcome those who challenge what I say, write or reveal. For in the challenge we all learn what is real and truthful. However, when someone says, “It’s in the Bible” as their only evidence without knowing where it is in the Bible or from whence it came, I seriously doubt their veracity and their intelligence.

Research everything before you speak it, write it or reveal it. Know the facts and not the opinions of others. Temper your revelations with the understanding that if they are truthful they will withstand any and all scrutiny.

Don’t fear what has been revealed to you. Think about it, feel it, know it and be it. It was given to you for a purpose that will become apparent to you when you focus on the context in which it was revealed to you.

All revelations are Divine gifts that guide you on your path. Follow that guidance and step confidently even though you might not know the way. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

What appears to be miraculous is in actuality Divine order moving natural order to unfold what you observe to fulfill your actualization in direct proportion to your expectation of its occurrence and the allowance of its manifestation. Either every action is miraculous or it is not.

The miracle of life is life itself growing and expanding into what it is expected to become and what is allowed to happen. Seeking supernatural explanations for natural unfolding is like claiming that a wise old bearded man on a golden throne in the sky is gracing you for kissing his posterior and obeying his rules to reap some reward that has been dangled like a carrot in front of a mule to get him to move. If you believe that this is the way life works then I suggest you look into how nature unfolds and manifests whether you participate or not.

Life goes on without your concepts and constructs of its manifestations. Life is. It came out of chaos by congealing and defining organic order from the inorganic raw materials that were doing their dance of energy and matter state change. Is life “a course in miracles” or “a curse in miracles” that unfold in your perceptions? You are what the Divine created you to be. Life out of randomness and chaos in order to look back at itself and proclaim, “I am that, I am.”

Be fulfilled in knowing that you are the advancement and culmination of what the omniverse does naturally; even though it appears to be miraculous to your limited perceptions. Divine love is the expression that created of all of life. As above, so below!

Be ye therefore perfect and NOT what others and your perceptions tell you that you are. Be the perfect divine being you were created to be by expecting the best to unfold for you and others and then allowing it to be so. And so it is! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Indifference is an emotion that has its root in apathy. Apathy is derived from the suppression of passion and concern because of some traumatic emotional event(s) that have built up walls to effective interpersonal engagement. Indifference is a lack of concern due to the acceptance of mediocrity and established comfort. Apathy is being fully disconnected from Divine love and indifference is a separation from Divine love due to the acceptance and security of mediocrity.

Hate is a reaction to not feeling love from someone due to their interactions and the perception that someone else has hurt you. It is not accepting responsibility and passionately desiring to hurt them due to your perception that they have hurt you or ‘could’ hurt you.

Love is more of surrendering yourself to your internal passions of tenderness and devotion to your Creator, another or yourself. Hate is resisting and fighting whereas love is allowing and surrendering. Apathy is not having an emotional stake in one’s perceptions while indifference is any lack of passion for involvement at all.

Know where indifference and apathy come from as well as love and hate. See them for what they are and know that in Divine love you are nurtured, whole and perfect. Anything less than that is in the realm of the mind, the ego, your beliefs and your subsequent behaviors and interactions. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


“But surely you can question my policies without questioning my faith, or for that matter, my citizenship” (Barack Obama, 2/4/10). Today in the USA distraction and misinformation seems to be the accepted form of putting forward your agenda. I ought to know, since my former column with Examiner.com was censored by The Clarity Group last October, 2009. I took a stance against one of my fellow writers who kept putting forward the lunacy of rhetoric (in my opinion) espoused by Glenn Beck. I was removed from their system after I refused to comply with their censorship. The same people who claim to have values and respect the Word of God are caught having affairs and cheating on their taxes. But how do they get away with it? The term Plausible Deniability comes to mind. PD is a response that is carried out by perpetrators that deny the existence of an act or occurrence because there is no concrete evidence to prove that they actually committed the act. For example, the recent issue over torture by US officials.

Agendas are set by individuals who desire an outcome that they perceive to be correct based on their accepted beliefs. The Christian Holy Wars and Crusades or the Muslim Jihad are examples. Both instances outline violence to relieve a perceived struggle to better oneself and attain a unity with God. But is this perceived struggle really necessary? Hardly. It is a result of the demands of the human ego and not God. As Dr. Wayne Dyer once said, “We are individualized expressions of the whole.” Our egos are concerned with separation and division. We are inextricably tied to our dualistic environment. Try to live without breathing the air in the atmosphere or walking without the earth beneath your feet. We cannot do it. We are a part of this perceived reality just as much as it is a part of us.

Spirituality is indivisible. It is your ability to recognize your connection to the oneness of life. Your ego cannot divide God. Anyone who separates groups of people from one another is ego-centered and does NOT reflect the oneness of God. It’s just that simple. Yet, many self-righteous religious fanatics thrive on separating themselves from the beliefs of others. In their obvious ignorance, they accept the desires of the ego as being holy even to the point of committing crimes against humanity. When caught in their heinous acts they embrace plausible deniability to cover their tracks. They convince their base of followers that those who are making the attacks on their character are even weaker in character than they are. It’s called bait and switch. While you are examining someone else’s behaviors you are not looking at the one who is making the accusations. Candidates like Sarah Palin pull this one so much that their behavior is obvious.

When an individual lives a significant amount of time on this planet they come to an understanding of how things work. When we all are young, we enter life with an understanding of what we were taught form our parents and family, school and friends. We have an understanding of the information we have learned and use that knowledge to navigate through life. When we have repeatedly used that knowledge over the years tempered with experience, we begin to understand how and when to use our knowledge in relation to our lives. We, over the course of time, develop wisdom. An accurate analysis of our dualistic perceived reality demonstrates division, separatism and a perceived struggle to get through life. Nothing could be further from the truth. As we develop our spirituality over the course of our lives, we come to a deeper understanding that God is indivisible. He is what gives us life and the ability to choose the path we want to follow.

We are blessed with a conscience which is based on common senseConscience is an ability or a faculty that distinguishes whether one's actions are right or wrong. In psychological terms conscience is often described as leading to feelings of remorse when a human does things that go against his/her moral values, and to feelings of rectitude or integrity when actions conform to such norms (Wikipedia). Conscience is based on common sense. Common sense consists of what people in common would agree on: that which they sense as their common natural understanding (Wikipedia). Conscience is a relative reaction to an absolute accepted common sense of an observed factual reality.

Most people possess a conscience but some people do not. There is a difference between understanding a person’s pain and being able to vicariously feel that pain and act in a manner to not hurt or manipulate another human being. A psychopath is an individual whose lack of empathy for another human being leans more to an inherited condition where fearlessness is employed and an inability to internalize societal norms. A sociopath’s behavior is similar to psychopathicbehavior but is more from environmental influences than it is from heredity. These two expressions of character are both classified as antisocial personality disorders as proposed by Psychologist David T. Lykken.

Utilizing a conscience based on common sense, how can any individual justify separation and division of humanity from the oneness of God? The only way is to make others believe that you (your ego) possess a greater wisdom of God’s plan (Pat Robertson for example). It’s back to the expression my way or the highway. If you don’t buy into their B.S., then you are not controllable by them. Without control over your conscience and common sense, they cannot tap your wallet. The religious leaders who employ a division and separation message are not proclaiming the truth of God. They are only trying to control, dominate and manipulate your behaviors to succumb to their will. Only the mindless follow these control freaks because they have not come to an understanding of the oneness of God. God gives life; he does NOT promote death. It’s just that simple. If you employ this acid test you will always be able to ferret out the truth seekers from the manipulators.

Live your life with the actual acceptance of God as the giver of life instead of the plausible deniability associated with those who strive to separate us from our brothers and sisters. Act on the truth and the facts that you observe and don’t rely on the opinions of those who thrive on the control, domination and manipulation of other human beings. Use the conscience you have based on the common sense that we are all tied to each other and the world in which we perceive and live. There is no division in the heart of God, only humanhood. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


How do you know when you are living from Divine love? When you give and share peace, understanding, joy and love with others even though you are going through the perception of personal hell.

Operating from Divine love means you forgive yourself and others for aberrant behaviors, you apologize to yourself for your reactions to those behaviors, you give thanks for your awareness in understanding you are Divine love and you share your blessings of Divine love with the entire omniverse.

Living in Divine love is our natural state of existence; if we perceive that we aren’t living in Divine love it is because our egos are very good at convincing us that we aren’t.

Listen to the Divine emanating Divine love from your heart. That is the true guidance we all need to be perfect in our expression of the truth into reality. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When everything is subjective then it is obvious that nothing is objective.

Objectively speaking, being subjectively objective requires one to be objectively subjective as well.

Being objective requires you to minimize your subjectivity and maximize your objectivity, subjectively speaking. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D


If you only knew that in taking the action not to worry about that which you suspect will bring you pain and suffering, you have set the wheels in motion for the dome of your ego to open your awareness to the heavens and bathe you in the well-being that you always have flowing through you.

The peace, understanding, joy and Divine love of the Divine are ever-present within you; it is in worrying that you separate yourself from the truth that you are always living in well-being and that it is your choice ‘not to’ that separates you from the blessings you already have.

Be ye therefore confident of well-being! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Most of us have heard the ongoing arguments about the separation of church and state. The founding fathers knew that this essential ingredient would be necessary in order to prevent the re-creation of the oppression they and their families had experienced at the hand of the Aristocracy of England. In the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution it states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” This argument has allowed many new churches to be formed for varied reasons the United States. Originating from 2 Orthodox divisions of Christianity over 256 sects of Protestantism and have grown out of the respect for the term, “religious freedom.” But what about the separation of church and business?

In 1904 Max Weber, a German economist and sociologist began a series of essays entitled, “The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.” He proposed that capitalism evolved when the Protestant ethic influenced large numbers of people to engage in work in the secular world. He further proposes that the Protestant Ethic was a force behind the mass action that influenced the development of capitalism. This idea is known as “The Weber Thesis” (source: Wikipedia). In his treatise Weber quotes the ethical writings of Benjamin Franklin to describe the “spirit of capitalism” which is based on individual greed, moral perpetuity and sometimes moral turpitude. Weber found a paradox in the Protestant work ethic. On one hand congregation members were religiously compelled to follow secular vocations to accumulate money. On the other hand, the spending of money inappropriately such as the purchasing of luxuries and donations to the poor, only furthered one’s journey towards either greed or dependency. Weber traces the union of the “spirit of capitalism” back to the Protestant Reformation.

Accepting Weber’s hypothesis, we can see a definite link between capitalism and established religion. After all, the early settlers of this country were Protestants. They had to leave their homes, travel a great journey and survive in a new world with what they called “savages.” Fortunately, for them, the true natives of this country respected the land and all creatures. Problems only occurred when certain groups tried to impose their belief systems upon the natives. As capitalism and business grew, religion became inextricably tied with business. Before the modern day practice of conducting business on golf courses, church members would only do business with other church members. The word “religion” comes from the Latin word “religio” (reverence for God) and “religionem” (inheritance of God), which means a binding together of people with common beliefs who have left behind their old ways and have developed new and common ways of approaching life. Remember, God doesn’t have religion. Man does. Years ago I read Hubbard’s book, “Dianetics”, and was taken aback by his pseudo-science and hypnosis of his followers. I was courted by Scientology at the Celebrity Center in Los Angeles, CA. in the late 70’s when they wanted to put a galvanic skin response meter on me to determine whether I was “clear” or not. This meter was supposed to show the “knots” in my nervous system. When I asked the “clear” initiator to show me his results on the e-meter, he declined; even though he had a large certificate over his head that stated he was “clear.” That told me all I needed to know. So I began some intensive research on Mr. Hubbard.

Today we see many TV and community churches continually asking for money to support the “ministry.” As we all know, money is one of the key ingredients in “spreading the word” of whomever you perceive is         extending the message that appeals to you. How do we truly know who is on the up and up? It’s simple. If a church or pastor’s message is more on the accumulation of “financial gifts” more than on the helping of souls that should be a clear indication as to their motives. Many churches have become businesses and treat their constituents as laborers for their greater good. Some businesses have become churches and are in the pockets everyday of their constituency. Remember, your tithe doesn’t have to be just to a church. If you give financially to help others in any way, you are spreading the wealth of God. This is not socialism, it is giving. There is a difference. Don’t let those who have more than enough convince you that you must give according to their rules. Respect man’s laws, but truly follow God’s laws.

Where is our true HEART? Is it the physical organ pumping blood through our bodies, or is it a spiritual symbol of the seat of Divine love? It is the bridge between ‘heaven’ and ‘earth’ by the ‘awareness’ of ‘reality’ and ‘truth’; hence H(eaven), E(arth), A(wareness), R(eality) and T(ruth).

Our spiritual heart is what teaches us the value of life and the purpose of it for the growth and expansion of the omniverse. Our physical home is the EARTH; it is the ‘E’arth’s ‘A’wareness of the ‘R’eality and ‘T’ruth from ‘H’eaven. We are inextricably tied to the Earth and it is our mutual environment in which we grow and expand together.

We have a duty to maintain our awareness of our spiritual and physical hearts. Share Divine love with all of creation and respect your home. As the saying goes, “Don’t s**t where you eat!” Be a part of the whole as the whole is within you. Be ye therefore heartful! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.





An ‘ad con volutem’ attack is one where non-related instances are used to support an argument  based on a personal agenda manifestation; they are designed to confuse the opponent of an argument by issuing forth supposed facts without introducing specific bibliographies of those supposed facts.

Don’t be baited into a debate where the challenger accuses you of retaliating with ad hominem attacks because it reveals that there initial argument is weak at best and their egos need to defend their weak positions. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Do you believe what your brain tells you is reality? Are you so entrenched in the veil of deception of motion and the illusion of duality that you simply won’t budge in your conviction that your brain fools you with perceptions that ‘fill in the blanks’? Do you argue for your version of reality even when you are proven completely wrong?

Your perceptions continually delude you because of how your brain has adapted to its environment. For example, vection is the perception of self motion induced by visual stimuli; look at a moving train while you are in one and you will perceive your own movement before you rationalize the other train’s movement. It is the conflicting input from your peripheral vision and your centralized vision that creates the brain’s perception of reality.

In the minute you have read this paragraph, you have moved over 1600 miles through space as a rider on this globe. Did you feel that motion? Did you perceive any changes in your environment? Did you convince yourself that what you observed and perceived is reality and NOT the fact that you traveled through space half the distance of the USA in less than a minute? Will you make a fool of yourself arguing that what your observations, perceptions and beliefs reveal is the true reality?

Stop viewing life for the valley of deceptions. Climb to the mountaintop and see from a Divine perspective that you are living in a soup of deception based on perceptions that you accept as truthful and real. What you are is greater that what you perceive you are. It is OK to swim in the soup; just don’t let it conform you to the perceived pot of ‘reality’ that holds the soup and molds it to its perceived shape. Trust in the Divine’s perspective and see ALL of reality. Crackers, anyone? ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Don’t believe me? I highly suggest that you watch the following episode of ‘Brain Games” on NatGeo TV or purchase a copy of the episode ($1.99 SD, $2.99 HD) “Motion Commotion” on YouTube to actually see HOW your brain fools you every moment of your life!

What exactly is a racist? It is a person that ‘believes’ and ‘practices’ racism. Racism is the ‘BELIEF” that the varied races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others [World English Dictionary].

Some further this viewpoint by including environmental influences that come from the places in which they live. It is not a fact, but a BELIEF!!! What do I call people who practice this belief? I call them MORONS because they ‘intrinsically’ know better and still act like they are better than everyone else. They exude bigotry that comes from nothing but selfishness and PURE ego!

A moron is a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment [dictionary.com]. Basing your reality on what you believe is tantamount to fooling yourself about the reality you observe, perceive and subsequently believe. If one so chooses to live in stupidity, bad judgment and lack of discernment, that is their right.

However, their moronic behavior demonstrates complete and utter deception of themselves and others in order to fulfill their own agenda manifestation! Be ye therefore considerate of everyone and their differences. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


When 'free markets' are driven by greedy and unscrupulous individuals, what is intended as being 'free' and 'open' ends up being monopolized by those individuals to their own ends and profits.

Allowing everyone to contribute to 'free' charities is not constricted to giving money; it is also implemented by giving time and sharing what has blessed you with those in need.

Seeking equality for all should not be predicated on their financial ability to pay for services that are beyond their means in order to survive and thrive.

The needs of the many ALWAYS outweigh the needs of the few. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


I once said to a person that you don't know the meaning of life until you change your kid's diaper.

They fired back at me with how dare I say that they could not know the meaning of life until they had a child.

I responded after a moment of introspection and said that I was wrong; you don't know the meaning of life until you've changed someone else's kid’s diaper. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


Why do we continually do the things that undermine our progress? Is it because we don’t feel worthy enough to move ahead? Is it because we are second guessing our motives and desires? Or is it because we know down deep inside that we don’t want to do the legwork over the apparent long haul of manifesting our innermost dreams? Could it be that we are inherently lazy or that we feel that it would be too much work for us to pursue?

If we perceive the fruition of our goals as a struggle we will avert our moving forward actions and make excuses for not behaving in the way that is necessary for our growth and expansion into individual fulfillment. We will procrastinate, delay and avoid what we KNOW we need to do in order to give ourselves and others the appearance that ‘circumstances’ have interfered with our progress. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We create the circumstances because it is we who make the stance and create the conditions that we perceive around us; hence, circum- (surrounding or affecting) and stance (a firm position). Circumstances are created by what we perceive around us ‘as a result’ of the position that we take in life. We either react to or proact from what we perceive is happening to us at any given moment. Choosing to be honest and forthright with ourselves and others sets the tone for a stance that allows truth and justice to prevail.

Our perceptions of our ‘circumstances’ are the result of how we react to or proact from what we experience in our individual environments. If we choose to be deceptive and selfish it sets the tone for our future experiences and ‘circumstances’. How you react to your experiences is ultimately how they will affect you. Do you want pleasant circumstances in your life? Then be honest, forthright and giving. Do you want unpleasant circumstances?

Then keep being selfish and sanctimonious about your beliefs and you will constantly be in ‘circumstances’ that will challenge your erroneous beliefs and create problems in your life. The choices are yours. Make the choices that support life and opportunities and not those that take away from them. Be ye therefore supportive, kind and truthful. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.


The image we maintain has nothing to do with who we truly are. What we truly are is beyond any image that anyone holds as true or chooses to believe is what we are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

Respect for life begins when you respect who and what you truly are. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

"Seek first to snatch the ball out of my hand before I reveal that the ball is no longer there, Grasshopper!" ~Master Po

I am here to speak the truth, live it and share it. If anyone doesn't believe what it is I say, then that is their right. Just respect the fact that it is my right to say it just as it is your right to believe it or not. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.

If we can’t see the reason for why things happen to us, then we will eventually come to understand our individual purpose from the experiences we encounter. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
