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, this podcast offers you weekly messages on the principles and practice of spiritual living delivered by Dr. Patrick Cameron and various guest speakers. We are the Centre for Spiritual Living in Edmonton, Alberta.

    How to Not Be Triggered When We're Judged

    As we begin to do church around the purpose of transforming lives instead of doing church around the purpose of feeling better about ourselves, we in the community begin to feel a greater sense of empowerment, partnership, and ownership.

    This week, the Centre's transformation coach, Dr. Gary Simmons, visits to teach us how to not be triggered when we're judged.

    Knowing how is not enough to begin practicing not being triggered when someone judges us. We need to know why we should not be triggered.

    Right now we're living in a story of separation. But we're shifting into a world of inter-being, a shift to a context of wholeness, of oneness.

    When we are being judged, here is what we say: Tell me more.

    Why? Because the judgement is not about us.

    And we may find that behind every judgement is the gift of the revelation of an unmet need. But to get there, we need to stand in the place of "Tell me more."

    States of Being and Stages of Being

    This week, Dr. Patrick previews the upcoming weekend Genogram activity with Dr. Gary Simmons that will happen at the Centre. The Centre and its ministry has a history and thus a pain body. The purpose is to identify the unconscious patterns that drive or run our ministry when we are not conscious, as well as those patterns and the unintended consequences of the current way we do ministry in the minister-centric practice. We then seek to answer: Who did we come here to be? Why does the Centre exist?

    There are states of being and stages of being. A feeling of oneness is a state, and how we view it will be coloured by our stage of development.

    Limitation and poverty are not things but are the result of restricted ways of thinking. We are surrounded by a Subjective Intelligence which receives the impress of our thought and acts upon it. This natural Law in the Mental World is neither good nor bad. It can only be said of It that IT IS, and that we may consciously use It. The Law is a law of reflection; for Life is a mirror, reflecting to us as conditions the images of our thinking. Whatever one thinks tends to take form and become a part of his experience. The Medium of all thought is the Universal Mind, acting as Law. Law is always impersonal, neutral, receptive and reactive.

    Look into the mirror with love.

    Waking Up to the Infinite Possibilities

    We have within us a Power that is greater than anything we shall ever contact in the outer. A power that can overcome every obstacle in our lives and set us safe, satisfied, and at peace, healed and prosperous in a new light, in a new life.

    We've fallen asleep and gotten caught up in the outer. But waking up is so beautiful and wonderful. We do this by working to our edge, to the limits that we've reached previously.

    Mind, all Mind, is right here. It is God's Mind, God's creative power, God's creative life. We have as much of this Power to use in our daily life as we can believe in and embody.

    Let us heal our sense of separation. Let us stop listening to the mind and start listening to the heart.

    Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. -- Joseph Campbell

    International Day of Service

    Service is: Giving to others, service to self, being a presence, compassion, being unselfish, doing something for others without expecting reward or gain, helping without expectation, and helping people when they are unable to complete a task for themselves.

    Being in service to others reminds us of our humanity.

    It's a chance to share our life experience with others and to realize that we are not so unique. It helps us to feel better about ourselves, and to feel better about our world. It is our opportunity to share our goodness with others.

    At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built, not what we got but what we shared, not our competence but our character, not our success but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love.

    Never Give Up, But Always Give Over

    This week, guest speaker Nadene Rogers teaches about never giving up but always giving over.

    On the theme of surrender, we learn how to let go of our identity to find ourselves, to let go of the roles we play and the masks that we wear.

    We give ourselves over to who we are being and how we are feeling and what we are thinking in every moment. We give ourselves over to that which is so much bigger than we are.

    We need to embrace our humanity to know our divinity.
