I’m not a real intern, but I play one on planet Earth.”

~ Robert Young - Dr. Welby M.D.

I know, an adult moment! “This thing about me having to have a certain amount of time each month as an in…

by Brian L Crissey


Life gets complicated, and yet the best guidance is often very simple.

The Good Man had some simple suggestions that would be good for us all to follow.

Judge not.

We can never know that we have a correct interpretation of everything that is pertinent to the issue at hand. So we cannot reliably judge. Clarifying information may arrive tomorrow, so don't judge others, or yourself.

Love others, including yourself, and seek the highest degree of Love in every sit…

A twisted adventure of the highest degree of love

One day, a young woman (we’ll call her Goldilocks) ventured into the woods in search of a deeper meaning to life. While on her sojourn, she came upon a small cottage. She was intrigued as to why anyone would have a home in the middle of the woods. Upon turning the handle on the door, it opened. Looking in, Goldilocks noticed that there was no one home. So she let herself in.

Let’s hold the story here for a second…It seems …

I pray all is well as we “live forward” creating a better world today and for all of our tomorrows. I’d like to share some insights with you from some recent experience(s) I’ve had, and I do this in recognition of life’s synchronicity and the Divine Consciousness (awareness/unity with God) that I’m feeling so blessed to have experienced and need to share.

I recently made a decision to move to a new city, recognizing that I needed to be living in a more progressive…

Angel SD

Let us meet together in the mountains of my world. A beautiful river flows way below us, on our steep ledge. A soft breeze blows as we look down the river into the night sky. We see our planet’s ring glowing in the deep midnight blue. We turn to my porch and I say, "Let’s build a fire and sit comfortably in front of it". Let yourselves relax. Soothe your soul while we learn.

Almost everyone knows what Divine Love is, however, there is much, much more t…
