Our Perspective on God

New Thought: You Express God

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

Every Thing Has a Season and a Purpose

Every Thing Has a Season and a Purpose

Treatment by Carol Haave, RScP

     It’s hard to believe that it’s August here.  The mornings are cool; the days not excruciatingly hot; the sky is blue; and life is good.

     As I listen to the sound of the waterfall and the birds chirping, I am reminded that “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1).  Every thing has a season and a purpose “under” God — you, me, the birds, the mountains, the oceans, flowers.  Every thing we can imagine has a right and purpose to be here, at this moment in time.
     Today I realize and admit to myself that I, too, have a purpose under heaven.  There is a reason I am here on the planet at this time.  There is no one alive today who has the same exact skills, talents, knowledge and experience I do.  No one else, but me, can bring forth that package — me — into the world in a way that contributes to the best of who I am and who, coll ectively, the world can become.  My voice is absolutely necessary to the harmonic symphony of everyday life.  I don’t shirk my responsibility or shrink from it.  Today I am happy to bring my gifts to every situation I encounter.  I strive to make every relationship/every activity better than it was before.  I am humbled when I see the God essence of those around me even when they can’t see it in themselves.  I am Divinely led to the perfect words and actions to make every situation better.
     Thank you, God, for this glorious day and for all the blessings in my life.  I reflect on the gift that I am — that others are — and know that all is well in my world, right now.  I release these words into the Law that sustains Life for all time and know their immediate manifestation.  The world is uplifted one person, one thought at a time, and I happily contribute to its well-being.  So it is!!
