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.

Courage: Rising Strong

In the quest to live a wholehearted life, we must have courage. Brené Brown, in her book Rising Strong, explores how those who recognize the power of emotion and are not afraid to lean into discomfort make the biggest difference in the world. There is no courage without the fear that causes it, and it is okay to feel vulnerable.

"Owning our stories and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do." -- Brené Brown

Inclusivity: Including the Shadow

Carl Jung said, "Until we make the unconscious conscious, it will direct our lives and we will call it fate." He also said, "Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."

We all have triggering moments. These give us the opportunity to learn something about ourselves. When we feel uncomfortable or troubled, we are out of alignment with the truth of our being. The Q Process, by Dr. Gary Simmons, helps us work through our triggers and aspects of our shadow.

Inclusivity: The Key to Personal Transformation

Inclusivity. "Where there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you." -- African proverb

First of all, inclusivity starts with ourselves---owning all of ourselves and welcoming every experience in life as our teacher. Secondly, we need to understand the difference between translation and transformation. Translation opens the door, but true transformation causes real changes to occur in our ego. Thirdly, new learning opens new doors. We can learn new ways of relating and processing our hurts.

New Age vs. New Thought: What's the Difference?

We are all one. There is one Spirit or Force that contains All. We create our reality through what we think. Love and God are synonymous. Meditation and conscious prayer create dynamic change in our lives. We are capable and all on a path of evolving into higher states of consciousness and expressions of love.

We are not creating our reality from the presence of our personal self, we are creating our reality from the presence of our higher self. Therefore, everything that is created is for us, and nothing is against us.

Wholeness - Living an Undivided Life

We are born with an inherent wholeness.

We learn of the creative power of thought. We are intrigued by the wonder of it. We can become fascinated with the fact that thought is creative, that what we think takes form in our experience to some degree. We begin to use this law for every possible purpose for the benefit of ourselves and for others.

Wholeness - Our Personal Myth

We are not a drop in the ocean---We are the entire ocean in a drop. -- Rumi

We are all myth-makers. Empowerment is when we are no longer dependent on something or someone outside of ourselves. Are we creating our personal reality consciously, or is it being created by virtue of our conditioned self?

There is an infinite potentiality available to all. It mirrors back to us what we are sending out from our own state of consciousness.

Wholeness - From Suffering to Coherence

We are living the richest experience, in wholeheartedness in the quantum field of possibility. Our newest science meets the oldest traditions in beautiful synergy. Buddhism teaches that everything is impermanent and suffering is a part of living. We have the opportunity to learn how to suffer and then cast it off. In our modern world, we are learning the secrets that ancients knew---how activating the pineal gland and keeping our chakras in alignment gives us a better chance of reaching coherence and accessing the divine.

Wholeness - Know Thy Shadow, Know Thyself

Tibetan monks attempting to move a large, clay Buddha discovered that it was actually a gold statue covered in clay. We too have a golden shadow---a part of ourselves we do not want to recognize, that isn't a part of the image we present to the world. The mask we wear is one of clay; it can crack and show the true self within.

We must give our attention and energy to that which creates greater aliveness. Let us understand our mask and begin chipping away at it. What is the opposite to our public persona? Look for the blessings that our unowned self has gifted us with.
