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 in…

ADL Blog Images (11)

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…

By Brian Kirsch


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…

We are always en-light-ened by the time we spend in communion with you. It is our highest hope and desire that you will take time from your busy day to commune with your “Higher Self” and personal Spirit Team more often, preferably on a daily basis.

This communion is essential for anyone who is diligent about pursuing enlightenment during their current incarnation. It is simple to do, but one’s busy-ness, disbelief and resistance makes…

Angel Wings

by Rev. Allen Reed, Jr.

"Man is the highest form of creation, even more so than the angels, for man aspires to freedom."    -Paramahansa Yogananda

For as long as I can remember I have always been connected to the angelic realms.

My very first encounter was at the age of three. It was late at night and I found myself awakened by the sound of music. A thousand water based instruments and another thousand voices of the highest pitch. Even at such a tender age, I instinctually knew the musi…

We are well pleased for this opportunity to communicate with you. We know that you have many questions about the universe and how to connect with your Guides. Many of you have had glimpses of your Heavenly Helpers and snippets of information that have come through so clearly that you knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that it was truly an inspirational thought from a benevolent Being much wiser than you.

In order to increase these communication…

Remember Who You Are Child; Thou art Light

by Rev. Allen Reed, Jr.

Dreams are powerful portals of perception and guidance and as a society it is our innate duty to ourselves, mankind and to GOD in our modern age to reclaim this lost ancient practice, for the subconscious speaks to us in dreams in its own language of symbols.  It only speaks one language and symbols is it, so we must learn its language to better understand ourselves.

There are many treasures that await us all in the dream world. Treasures that shamans knew the truth a…
