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 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

Treatment by Tim Phares, RScP, MIT

Wow, June already!  Closing in on summer.  It’s true — June is busting out all over.

Should be an interesting weekend.  This evening, the Belmont Stakes.  Although there won’t be a Triple Crown this year, the Belmont remains the test of champions.  Every year, it brings back memories of the year we went to the Belmont and saw the great Secretariat complete his Triple Crown.

And on Sunday evening, one of my favorite annual events — the Tony Awards.  It looks like we have some close races this year.  What will win Best Musical?

What do they have in common?  They celebrate excellence.  Once upon a time at our center, we had stickers saying, “I AM COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE”.  That is a commitment worth renewing every day.  Are you committed to excellence?   How does it show up in your life?

So we pray:

There is only One Life.  That Life is God.  That One Life is perfect.  it is in, as, through, throughout, and all around me and each of us.  it is Spirit; It is Consciousness.

I know that the perfection of the One Life expresses right now in every aspect of our lives, in every being, in everything.  Everything vibrates with a degree of livingness.   That Life is all, and it is more than good, it is excellent.

In every moment, I renew my commitment to excellence, to the highest and best.  I seek and express excellence in everything i do, and I honor excellence in every endeavor, whether my own or that of another.  For the other and I are one, and our most excellent, our highest and best, lifts up the world.

I am thankful for knowing, recognizing, pursuing, and achieving excellence.  i am grateful for all the ways it shows up in my life and in every life, every being, everything.

And in that gratitude, I now release my word to the Law of the Universe, knowing that it is done and done well.  All is well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

And SO it IS!
