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.

The Thing Itself

Highlighting 100 years of the Science of Mind by focusing on Chapter 1 in Dr. Ernest Holmes' monumental work, The Science of Mind.

Three areas of focus:

The Mythic Christmas

The story of the birth of Jesus is one of going through the deepest darkness and finding fresh radiance. That radiance comes from the courage to walk towards the things that scare us. Jesus' birth coincides with the return of the light to the world and the renewing of life. By taking on the Christ Consciousness---the personification of the Presence of God---we become the light of the world.

If we find ourselves in a dark place right now, know that the dark place is where grace goes to be reborn.

Where Light Shows Up

What is here now if there is no problem to solve? This is a question that nurtures the idea of possibility. What must we become to give birth to this possibility?

Let us free ourselves forever from the thought that God may be pleased by a life of sacrifice, that the world is any better because of our misery, or that righteousness is more perfectly expressed through poverty than abundance. -- Dr. Ernest Holmes

We are not meant to suffer. We bless the world by living in freedom, in joy, and in abundance.

Planting the Seeds 2

This is the second of four "Planting the Seeds" community gatherings hosted by the Centre's new Board of Trustees.

The meeting starts with a review of the last meeting. Then we hear results from the last meeting's small group gatherings, feedback from the community survey questionnaire, and an update on the social media and marketing effort for the Centre. We are then introduced to the idea of Spirit Groups, which are small groups that focus on ministering to the community at large.

Leading, Living, and Growing Through Change

Life is curly! Don't try to straighten it out!

Chair of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Jennifer Bowerman, gives a talk on leading, living, and growing through change, highlighting the importance of white space in change moments.

We are always in the light. We don't always see it, but it's there. Doubts are natural, but we can use them as signposts to guide us to the light. We always come out the other side.

This Season of Peace on Earth

We are called to focus with great faith that as we turn our attention and energy to all that is good in the world, that is what will expand, and when we choose to focus on peace, peace will expand.

Rev. Connie Phelps, currently working in Kenya, says, "This is a truth teaching and truth is truth for everyone, no matter who we are, where we are, or what colour we are. It's as simple as that."

Abundant Gifts

We all have gifts and we are accountable for how we use them. Jesus' parable of the talents teaches that those who use their gifts well will have abundance. Those who don't use their wealth well will lose what little they have. They may feel like they are suffering, but Ernest Holmes teaches that suffering is a result of not living according to the laws of the universe. It is a loving indicator that we are out of alignment with the truth of our being. The man in the parable who was foolish with money---who hid his gifts---went straight to making excuses and casting blame.

Sufficiency is Abundance

Sufficiency isn't an amount at all. It is an experience. A context we generate. A declaration. A knowing that there is enough and that we are enough.

As we lay down the path of our lives, we must find something that works for us and keep digging. We keep digging our well, and we keep digging deep, because there is water there.

We are a community here. A Beloved Community is a collection of individuals who are learning how to love themselves, one another, and the Universe.

Living From More Than Enough

The natural effort of every individual to better his or her own condition is more powerful than any obstacle that gets in his or her way. -- Adam Smith

Independent of any amount of resources, scarcity is an unexamined and false system of assumptions, opinions, and beliefs from which we view the world as a place where we are in constant danger of having our needs unmet.

There are three toxic myths of scarcity:
