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.
Love Casts Out All Fear
The three things that people are most afraid of are death, other people, and
their own minds.
The Buddha said this, "All we are is the result of what we have thought. It is
founded on our thought. It is made up of our thought. If a man speaks or acts
with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the
ox that draws the carriage.
"All we are is the result of what we have thought. It is founded on our
thought. It is made up of our thought. If a man speaks or acts with a pure
thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him."
So if we're miserable, what do we do? If we're unhappy or suffering, what do
we do? The answer here is clear.
Presence, Awareness, and Intention
Motivational guest speaker Elizabeth Manuel speaks today about presence,
awareness, and intention.
She considers the question, "What's lurking beneath the threshold of our
consciousness?", as she weaves examples of practical spiritual principles into
triumphant stories of her life's struggles.

is our enchantment with progress.
But we are not stuck, and we teach spiritual principles that we can apply in
our lives, individually and collectively, to change the way that we show up in
How to Use It
Ernest Holmes wrote that in the New Thought movement "we are likely to indulge
in too much theory and too little practice."
We need to practice these spiritual thoughts and spiritual modalities, to
integrate them into the foundation of who we are.
"As a matter of fact, we only know as much as we can prove by actual
What It Does
Ernest Holmes wrote, "We can know God only in so far as we can become God."
We must practice these things as we work towards waking up our consciousness.
"It is necessary that we release all thoughts---as well as things---that
clutter up our lives."
"I am looking at the face of God. You are beautiful. I support you in
releasing and dissolving and eradicating whatever it is that you know is no
longer required. You've got this. I celebrate your freedom and giving birth to
the infinite possibilities!"
The Way It Works
Divine Power is the energetic field of unconditional love and infinite
possibility. When we move into that field, that's where instantaneous healing
It is never too late. We are never too old. We are never too young. We are
never deficient in any way, shape, or form. This is the only moment. We are in
this incubator of unconditional love and possibility.
This Presence is immersed in us.
Divine Energy is unceasingly seeking an outlet. There is a Universal Mind, a
Spirit, an Intelligence that is the origin of everything. It is First Cause.
It is God. This Universal Life and Energy finds an outlet in and through all
that is energized and through everything that lives. There is no spot where
God is not.
