Weekly talks given by Rev. Patrick for free download

We are a spiritual community that blesses all teachings and all spiritual teachers. We know that there is no wrong way to worship, whether it be lighting a candle, facing the east, burning incense, repeating a mantra, lighting a menorah, or offering prayer. We respect all the ways there are to draw closer to Spirit, for even though there may appear to be great differences in the path, the destination is the same.

As an expression of our community, the Spiritual Living Podcast offers you weekly messages on the principles and practice of spiritual living, delivered by Rev. Patrick Cameron and various guest speakers.

How We Build Our Tomorrows Today

Life is an adventure in which we never know what is going to happen just beyond the turn of the road. But too often our today is filled with regrets over the past. If we could convince ourselves that the limitations of the past need not be carried into the future, what a happy outlook we should have.

Emergineering

How old is old? And when does a person get too old to enjoy life? Could a person be as young at 80 as he is at 18?

Some of the scientific minds today are telling us that while time exists, age does not. That, in reality, time is not a way of measuring years and months and days, but rather, a measure of experience in a limitless life.

God's Mind is the only mind there is. And God is eternal. The whole proposition in this we believe because God lives in us and we are able to think because the Mind of God lives in us.

God Speaks to the Heart

The intellect is not the creative factor in the universe. Rather, it is feeling that is creative. God speaks to the heart through a language of feeling, a feeling which is affirmative.

The best psychological balance is between the intellect and the heart, because the intellect can give a certain definite form to feeling. But unless the feeling is there, the intellect will have merely provided the empty mould. We want not only to feel but to think. We wish not only to think but also to feel.

Teen Sunday: Transforming Lives through Authentic Living

We are here to transform lives, starting with the journey of rediscovering the truth for ourselves. Accept yourself as you are in this moment. Let how you are right now be okay. Once we learn to be authentic, we can explore ourselves and figure out what resonates with this one. This expands outwards to the whole world.

Second, we learn open-hearted living. We impact those around us by being our authentic self and living with an openness. We create ripples!

Easter for Metaphysicians

How do we do Easter as metaphysicians? We interpret scripture metaphorically and metaphysically. There is a meaning upon the words.

It's all Spirit, it's all God. In this dualistic world that we fall asleep in, what is happening is that this Icon, this Idea, is giving Itself to the world to bring forth the light of Radiance into the world and to reveal that nothing is separate from Divinity.

Visioning and the Emergination

Following Derek Rydall's Emergence, Dr. Patrick leads us through an exercise of activating our "emerginations", to help us discover and process our soul's purpose.

He then gifts us with a Rumi poem about breaking up the soil, a metaphor on how breaking our old patterns is necessary to cultivate the life energy of our soul.

"Our spirit needs to follow the changes happening in the spacious place it knows about. There, the scene is always new, a clairvoyant river of picturing, more beautiful than any on earth."

God's Will

To the scientific mind, the will of God is manifest in the immutable laws of the universe. For the overzealous religious, their definition of the will of God appears to come through some special revelation giving birth to a certain spiritual system of thought which forever after is to be taken dogmatically and accepted without question, a truth and a faith once and for all delivered. But it is evident that God's will and God's nature must be identical. If the nature of God is limitation and bondage, then the will of God must be limitation and bondage.

The Complete You

We, like all others, are seeking the joy of living. This urge is in every individual; it is in every thing.

Life has entered into us and, with it, the irresistible impulse to create. Socrates called it Spirit. Jesus called it Father in Heaven. Some ancients called it Atman. Why not just call it Me? The Complete Me. This is the Infinite Presence, and we are It.

The God We Believe In or The God Who Is?

This Sunday, Rev. Tammie Banting considers the difference between and the merits of worshipping the God we believe in or the God Who Is. The God who is believed in is, at times, some part of the God Who Is. Therefore whatever God we believe in---provided we believe this God is already in us---must respond to us at the level of our belief. It is done unto each of us as we believe. The principle is infallible. The practice is what we make it.

She also asks whether we see Dr. Patrick as an ordinary professional minister or as a spiritual superhero---red tights, cape, and all!

Belief, Faith, and Prayer

Belief is a certain way of thinking, it is an activity of consciousness.

Faith is an affirmative mode of thought that says "I can" as opposed to "I can't" or "I shall not".
