My Internship - September 2021
By Rev. Brian Kirsch
“I’m not a real intern, but I play one on planet Earth.”
~ Robert Young - Dr. Welby M.D.
I find myself having moments of living in the past. It’s a smug, know-it-all kinda thing. I think, and actually believe that since I have been on a spiritual path, that there are certain things that I already know. But I had an awareness the other day…I don’t know everything! I know, an adult moment! “This thing about me having to have a certain amount of time each month as an intern that needs to be shared with my mentors, is below Me.”, I said to myself.
Living in the framework of “The Greatest Degree of Love”, and having to make sure I have 4 hours of work within each month, has anchored me into having to be conscious of living each moment in “The Greatest Degree of Love”. An Aha moment hit with a different meaning of why a doctor has a “Practice” in medicine. As an intern in ministerialship, we have our own Practice. As an intern and beyond, I am always practicing. The Internship gives me an opportunity to coach myself and have coaches for feedback.
The other part of internship which I view as powerful, is the mentors. I love experiencing people having spiritual and life awakenings. My mentors have put in time and energy into their mentorship while still moving forward with their own lives. They are still having to work their “Practice” as Ministers. All the sudden, “This thing about me having to have a certain amount of time each month as an intern that needs to be shared with my mentors, is ABOVE Me.”
The internship is an energy, a Spiritual Guide that allows me to grow and share our paths. The Intern floats above my physical puppet that we call our bodies. The Intern and I float together above my physical puppet to make decisions on how to direct the physical body so that we can all experience more moments of “The Greatest Degree of Love”.
Thank you Alliance of Divine Love. Thank you to my mentors, Pamela and Brian Crissey.
Looky here, it took me over an hour to write this article…so, does this count as some intern hours? …and Oh, I thanked people, that ought to count as a couple extra points! Let’s all enjoy our “Practices”!
