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 Ed Preston, RScP
Well, I sit here with a blank mind trying to think of what to write a treatment about. I love a blank mind when I am going into meditation, but when I am trying to think of what to write about, a blank mind does not help…….unless I just write about a blank mind.
I see the One Mind as a blank mind, not because it is empty, but because my small, finite mind cannot embrace the giant Thoughts and Ideas of the One Mind. I accept its blankness as a beautiful aspect from my individual perspective. I know its blankness as a Divine aspect of Mind. I call it my Mystery. I recognize my own blankness of mind is a doorway into the One Mind of my mental and spiritual Universe.
I accept my blankness as both a doorway and a viewing window into the One Mind. I allow my blankness to lead me into that beautiful feeling of Oneness with something so much bigger than myself. I allow a Peace to emerge from my blankness, which is truly the Peace that passes all understanding. I unify with the One Mind through my Blankness. It is also Divine.
I realize that I am joined by a nearly infinite number of other minds who also can celebrate both our blankness and our individual pieces of Big Thoughts. I return from my Blankness with new thoughts about what to do in my life. I know we all do this also when we return from Blankness. I accept it as a form of Visioning. We find Divine insights in the Blankness.
So, right now I am very grateful for the blank mind that I began with and for the wonderful Blankness of the One Mind in which we all share. I thank my own mind for its blank times and just gratefully walk through that blankness into the One Mind.
So, I just release these words into the Law of Blankness knowing that they bring a wonderful power into all of our blankness as we simply accept it as our path to inspiration and insight and Divine Instinct.
We are one in the Blankness and so it is. Amen.
