Our Perspective on 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.

Treatment by Tim Phares, RScP

What you appreciate appreciates.

The idea for this treatment — and this phraseology — came to me Sunday during our “Music and Shared Wisdom” service at Celebration Center.   Have you ever thought about the word appreciate?  We say to someone, “I appreciate that.”  What are we really saying?  Think about buying land or some stock.  You buy it and it appreciates — it increases in value.  It’s more now than it was when you got it. 
So when we appreciate something someone does for us or gives us, we add value to it.  It becomes more than it was.  We bless it and we appreciate it and thus we add positive energy, the energy of gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation — and we increase the blessing.  We appreciate a nice day or good food, and we experience it even more fully, even more completely.  We have a larger experience of it.
And so, let us remember to appreciate all the good that we find, because what you appreciate appreciates.

So I offer this prayer of appreciation:

There is only One Life, One Mind, One Intelligence, in, as. through, and around all.  It is the Abundance of all that is.

That Life is my life right now.  What it is, each of us is.
I simply stop to appreciate all the blessings that are in my life and those that are coming my way.  I know that stopping to appreciate adds value to my experience, and I more fully experience the abundance of life.
I am grateful for this abundant life, for the fullest experience, for all the abundance that I experience.
In gratitude, knowing that all is well and all manner of thing shall be well, I simply let go and know that the richest and fullest is manifesting itself in every way.  It is done and done richly, now and always.
And SO it IS!
