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.

Harmony in the Fall Season

Harmony in the Fall Season

Treatment by h Rich Kurasiewicz, RScP
       Interesting times: Halloween is approaching, leaves are turning, election politics are at play, we hear of diversity, racism and white privilege, markets are fluctuating, Thanksgiving beckons… It’s at times like this that our daily spiritual practices ground us, raise our consciousness and promote peace and harmony in our communities and the world. For it is all God and One Mind and One Spirit, and it is the Truth that sets us free to live lives filled with Good, Harmony and Peace. And so we pray….
       God is all there is—the One Mind and the One Life, perfect, whole, complete, eternal and immortal. God is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. God is All-Good and available when we turn to it with acceptance of our good. For, I am that I am! I am one of the Father and the One Power and One Presence and the One Mind. I am created in the spiritual image and likeness of God—I am divine.  
       And just as I am perfect, whole and complete, each and everyone is perfect, whole, complete, eternal and immortal.  I declare that each and everyone takes the time to go into the silence, to the Secret Place of the Most High within—the Kingdom of God! It is in this communion with our Higher Selves that each and everyone is comforted, realizes the Truth that sets them free, and is at peace and in harmony with the world. And I know that this peace and harmony spreads throughout the community and nation and world. I know that the Power and Presence of Good and Love are more strongly manifested as a result of such communion—and it is Good! I declare that each and everyone becomes more fully aware that there is One Life, that Life is God and that Life is perfect, whole and complete. We are the light of the world as the Truth sets us free!
       I am so very grateful for the Light and Truth that shine brightly in each and everyone for that is the Truth of who we are—divine individualizations of the One Life.  I am grateful for all the Good, Peace, Harmony and Love that are manifested and the blessings that occur for all.  I am so grateful for the Goodness that is available and waits our acceptance. And I release my word unto the Law where it is already known in the mind of God. I know that my word will not return unto me void. I do give thanks that this is so and so it is!
