Oneness

ADL Blog Images (29)

By Rev. Rita Scheibeck



I know in my heart that Divine Source Energy and I are always One. When the situations around me seem to be in human chaos, I can call upon my intuition and guidance, which are only a short breath away.

I rely on my innate serenity to relax and rest, on my inner joy to fill my heart with song, on my natural healing powers to guide me to wholeness, and on my belief in universal abundance to bring prosperity into my life.

I absolutely know that all this is true for me through…

I And The Ego Are One

ADL Blog Images (27)

By Rev. Brian Kirsch

                         

“I and the Father are one.”

 ~Jesus Christ in John 10:30 King James Bible

Noun a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance.
"a boost to my ego"
  • PSYCHOANALYSIS
    the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identi…

Transplanetary, Transgenerational Birthday Present of Hope for the Future

ADL Blog Images (25)


Rev. Brian L. Crissey

My grandfather was shot dead when my dad was only 2. It was 1901. The family thought he was a traveling salesman, but the bullet in his heart said he was a riverboat gambler. We can't all be right all the time, can we? But we would like to get many of the big judgments right, wouldn't we? Or at least some of them.

Now I'm a grandfather seven times over, and my 16-year-old granddaughter Amata, who currently lives in Phuket, Thailand, provided me with an unexpected birthday…

Emerging Emergency

ADL Blog Images (21)

 

By Rev. Brian Kirsch

 

This past couple of months, I’ve seen Facebook posts and e-mails reminding me to “Emerge and Converge” to the 2021 ADL Conference. Back about forty years ago, I went through some communication courses with Scientology. One thing that stuck with me is the idea of looking up words even though I think or believe I know what they mean. Emerge: move out of or away from something and come into view.

Meditation

ADL Blog Images (19)

by Rev Rita Scheibeck

MEDITATION

I release all distractions and concerns of the outer world and turn inward toward my highest, best, and most receptive self. I remember and embrace my true and unique connection with Divine Source Energy and the Collective Creators. I rest, I relax and I listen.

(Allow time for meditation. )


I now allow, acknowledge, accept and affirm that this is so.
