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.

Each talk may be downloaded from this page by clicking the links that follow. Or you may choose to subscribe to this podcast and have each new talk downloaded automatically to your iPod or mp3 player.

How Love Follows the Lover

The invisible embrace of beauty: Love changes the way we see ourselves and others. We feel beautiful when we are loved. And to invoke an awareness of beauty in another is to give them a precious gift that they will never lose. When we say to someone, "You are beautiful", it is more than a statement or platitude. It is a recognition and invocation of the dignity, the grandeur, and the grace of their spirit. -- John O'Donohue

The Backpack of Transformation

Once we become aware of the patterns that we have formed, we can revisit them and make new choices.

As we surrender more and more deeply to the transformative process through our spiritual practices, we realize that we cannot expect the outer conditions of our lives to change while we remain inwardly the same.

The Framework of Possibility

The foremost challenge for leaders today is to maintain the clarity to stand confidently in the abundant universe of possibility, no matter how fierce the competition, no matter how stark the necessity to go for the short-term goal, no matter how fearful people are, and no matter how urgently the wolf may appear to howl at the door. It is to have the courage and persistence to distinguish the downward spiral from the radiant realm of possibility in the face of any challenge. -- Benjamin Zander

The Individual Expressions of an Infinite Creator

In life, should we stay or go? Inner turmoil. Forces within us. Asking us to do something different.

There's a challenge that we face in this supposed "real life". These are the control measures that we allow to become a part of our daily expression. But are we truly creators of our own experience?

We bring to our lives ourselves, our own personal reflection of what we believe to be true. We get to design how we react to that. We are all individual expressions of an Infinite Creator.

Leading From Any Chair

A conductor allows each member of the orchestra to become powerful. Are we leading in our lives? What is ours to do? Transformation happens when we shift our view of the world, when we see that what we have been doing is hiding, taking ourselves away, not participating, not engaging, not taking risks, and sitting in the back row of our lives.

Lighting the Spark of Enrollment

According to Benjamin and Rosamund Zander, "enrollment is about giving yourself as a possibility to others and being ready to catch their spark. It's about playing together as partners in a field of light..."

Too often we hide and "take ourselves away" from life. We hide out in the back row of our life.

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way to avoid the trap that you have something to lose. You are already naked; there is no reason not to follow your heart." -- Steve Jobs

Wherever authentic love is present, healing takes place.

The Invitation to Possibility

Today's talk is about living our lives in the art of possibility instead of living in survival mode.

Others may show us how they did this, and may even suggest how we can proceed, but there is a path that every person must walk alone. Yet not alone, because forevermore there is a Spirit that beckons, a Presence that feels out towards us as we feel out towards It. Yet, in the discovery of the self, to the self, and by the self, there is no delaying, no use waiting for something to come along or someone who can do this for us, for no such person exists.

Your Wild and Precious Life: No Returns or Exchanges

Today's talk is inspired by a line written by poet Mary Oliver: "Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one, wild and precious life." Our life is ours to live and to do with as we choose. How are we in service to our life, with grace and beauty and love and inspiration? We can't give what we don't have. We can't take anyone where we haven't gone.

The path is working with ourselves with what is happening here and now. The secret of all great masters is the precision and openness and intelligence of the present moment.

You Being Present Becomes the Gift of Christmas

Renew thyself completely each day, do it again and again and forever again.

We are not waiting on God---God is waiting on us. Meditation is a way of being, of living, of listening, of walking along the path of life, of being at peace with the way things are.

Can't Stop the Waves But We Can Learn How to Surf

In the age of communication, everyone has a religion. That is to say, we all put our attention and devotion into something.

The biblical story of wandering in the wilderness is a metaphor for the place where words and language do not exist. When we go into the wilderness, we do find God. The path of seeking means we've given up our allegiance to blind faith. It's yours and mine to discover our own path.
