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

No Matter How this Storm Plays Out, I Remain Grateful.

No Matter How this Storm Plays Out, I Remain Grateful.

Treatment by Tammi McKinley, RScP


As I write this, I see the snow falling outside my windows. It’s so beautiful. So pure.

I choose to stick to the truth that it is all God. No matter what the appearance of what this storm might bring, God’s got this covered, as I heard a minister say. I choose to stay true to the beauty and peace and harmony of life and nature. At the end of the storm, I will feel gratitude for all that has happened – helping neighbors out; having time to catch up on things that the downtime allowed for; having had enough to eat and drink. Being warm. No matter how this storm plays out, I remain grateful.

And so knowing that there is only one God. That God is all there is. That I am a perfect expression of that Being. That each one of us here and throughout the world are perfect expressions of the divine, all expressing from the One.

I speak my word that each one of us returns to the Truths that God expresses this weekend. That in any appearance, we choose joy and thanksgiving. We are grateful. We know and we acknowledge the gifts that Spirit entrusts to us this weekend. There is no fear, because there is God. We are not alone. God is expressing in, as, through, and with each one of us right here, right now. This is so.

And I am so grateful for this knowing. I relax into Spirit, knowing that all is well.

I release my word into the Law where it is already known in the One Mind.

I let it go. I let it be.

And so it is.
