Our Perspective on God

New Thought: You Express God

New Thought: You Express God

By on November 1, 2013 in New Thought

The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living supports the positive transformation of both our personal lives and the world itself.
At the Celebration Center for Spiritual Living, we teach people how to have a personal relationship with God. When we are deeply connected with Spirit, other areas of our lives fall into place — we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and bring more peace and harmony to the world.

What We Believe – Our Guiding Principles

We believe that the universe is spiritual and has intelligence, purpose, beauty, and order. Our beliefs are in harmony with all the world’s great spiritual teachings, and we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, Spirit, Energy, or Universal Intelligence, we are ever conscious that all people, places, and things emanate from this Universal Intelligence that is within us and all around us.

You and God are Inseparable

We believe that God is a Loving Intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through study and spiritual practice we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. We teach and practice a way of life where we can all learn how to live in accordance with spiritual principles. These principles, which we call the Science of Mind, are as reliable as the laws of physical science. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “It is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, your thinking and your expectations create your reality. By studying and applying spiritual laws, you can change your unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in your life.

Be a Part of an Inclusive Community

The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living teaches a New Thought philosophy that incorporates affirmative prayer, meditation, healing, visioning, and other spiritual tools to help you lead a spiritual life, think positively, and love deeply. As a member of our community, you’ll find the spiritual tools to transform your personal life and make the world a more peaceful, harmonious, and prosperous place.

The New Thought tradition dates to the 1880s and has its roots in the Transcendentalist             Movement of the 1830s. New Thought has an enduring and respected legacy that includes luminaries such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emma Curtis Hopkins, Phineas Quimby, and Walt Whitman. Some of the better known authors today whose writings represent our teachings are Michael Bernard Beckwith, Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, and Eckhart Tolle, as well as many others.  Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of all the spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, New Age and others — are all welcome in our communities.


Prayer of the Day

Moving Through Change

Moving Through Change

By on July 21, 2016 in Prayer of the Day


Treatment by Tim Phares, RScP


Many changes are happening in our lives.  Some situations seem in turmoil; others seem to move along easily and gracefully.  Then there are the elections, which so far are just plain weird.

There is a lot of “process” going on.   A lot to plan; a lot to complete.

And so we treat.

I know that there is only one Life, the Life of God, in, as, through, throughout, and around all.  Everything is that One Life; it is my life now.

The stillness of spirit centers the motion of Creation.  The energy, love, peace, joy, harmony that god is, I am.  Each of us is, and each in a unique way.

That energy moves me forward.   I look forward with joy, easily completing all tasks in front of me.  I move easily and gracefully into the bigger, the greater, the higher, the deeper.  I do so with joy and excitement.  And I know this is true of all who read this treatment.

I am thankful for everything that is needed and desired, for he knowing, and for all the blessings in my life.

And I simply know that all is well, all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.  So grateful in that knowing, I simply release this word to the Universal Law, knowing that it cannot but be fulfilled.

And SO it IS!
