Our Perspective on God

New Thought: You Express 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 CelebrationCenter 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 CelebrationCenter 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, Muslim, New Age and others are welcome in our communities.

Happy Easter to all.

     Easter is, for us in New Thought, the time of renewal of life in nature, and the time to remember that there is only life, life eternal, life forever expanding and changing.
     In this time, I look outside and see the new green leaves on the trees outside of our window.   I am in awe, at how something that was so barren and appearing lifeless a few weeks ago, can so quickly be filled with new growth.  It is as though the trees and the flowers are reminding us of the eternal life that awaits the moment to spring forth.  Life was always there, and the moment to spring forth in newness arrives and there it is.
     I now offer this prayer
     There is only one life.  It is in this life that we are living, and it is this life that is us.  It is always growing, always new.  I know that as I am one with this life, all that is is one with this life, even that which appears to not be living.   It is a manifestation of the living God, and is living in its own manner.  I live in appreciation and awe of the ever growing, ever expanding universe. I know that God is love and joy.  I feel this love and joy. God’s abundance is ours to have.  Gods peace is ours to feel and to live in.  God as life is ever expanding, ever seeking out new expressions.  I am forever ready to experience the newness of life, to be in awe of the rebirth of life that is ours to behold. I live in gratitude, I am so grateful for this experience, for the knowing that is mine now.  I release this prayer to the universe.
Happy Easter everyone
