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.

Nurturing Conviction

It's so important to activate joy. Most people confuse joy with pleasure---pleasure is temporary, but joy is a state of being.

This week's talk features the story of the Prodigal Son, a tale of leaving the state of well-being, of moving out of the state of wholeness. From it, we learn that Spirit is always with us, and everything that Spirit has is ours. We can shift from meritocracy to grace, which is inclusive, merciful, and non-punitive. Ultimately, we learn that we can't get there---we can only be there.

Planting Seeds of Faith

Faith requires uncertainty. It requires an intimate, powerful communion with the Divine where doubt is at the heart of the matter.

There is a difference between faith and certainty; there is a difference between faith and fanaticism. Faith requires us to live in the Mystery.

It takes great wisdom, love, compassion, and deep caring to stand in the unknown possibility.

The Art of Happiness - Part 2

Our Divine right and natural state of being is Freedom and Joy. When we are living in freedom and joy, we are more in alignment with our true nature.

Are we ever lonely? Lonely people have a real difficulty with self-disclosure, communication, and are poor listeners. Yet within all beings, there is a seed of perfection, and compassion is required to activate that seed, which is inherent in our hearts and minds. We must show up completely curious, recognizing the Divinity and One Life in everyone we meet. We must show up completely present and vulnerable. This is intimacy.

The Art of Happiness - Part 1

This week begins a series looking at the book The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama. Happiness is determined by our state of mind rather than external events. In other words, we can train ourselves in happiness. It requires practice and sincere and dedicated effort to live a happy life.

Spiritually speaking, we have four capacities of awareness: sleep, dreaming, captured by the outside world, and spiritual. Spiritual practice is whatever supports us in looking within.

The Seven-Day Stamina Workout

This Sunday talk is dedicated to the memory of Prayer Warrior Julie C. Bull.

Whatever we desire already exists in the world. Others have gone before us and blazed the trail. So we don't have to reinvent the proverbial wheel---we just have to follow in the path already laid out for us. We only need focus on the trail and push through whatever self-defeating stories come up for us.

Practices to Transformation and Renewal

Powerful people tell the truth. So we start by facing the truth that we are not fine.

Let us slow down right now. This allows us time to be present and honest with ourselves.

Let us audit our lives. We do this by writing down some of the negative things that are going on in our thinking. This allows us to release the negative thoughts and the resultant negative emotions.

Building Peace, Poise, and Clarity into True Power

One cannot be a good student of the Science of Mind who is filled with fear and confusion. We must keep ourselves in a state of equilibrium, in a state of poise, peace, and confidence, in a state of spiritual understanding.

Let us align with our powerful selves. In this, we can approach making choices as a spiritual practice. What will happen if we take the risk? What will happen to us if we don't?

Positive change is choosing to take on the uncertainty of life on our own terms, with passionate curiosity and life-long learning.
