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

A Unity of All

A Unity of All

Treatment by Rich Kurasiewicz, RScP
Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner in a few weeks! This is a special time of renewal in Nature and it can be for us as we choose to renew our faith by raising our consciousness through our intentions and daily spiritual practices. The answers are within as we connect with our divinity—the Kingdom of God within in the secret place of Most High. And, when we raise our consciousness and the energy of love, it raises the consciousness of the world and more love returns to us—the more we give, the more we receive. And so we pray…
God is the One Power, the One Presence and the One Mind, the substance of all there is and ever was and ever will be.  God is the Living Spirit Almighty in all, around all, through all and throughout all. God is the Alpha and the Omega. God is Good. And I am that I am. I am perfect, whole and complete and one of the Father and the entire Universe. I am one with the One Mind and a co-creator in my life. I am an individualized expression of the divine, made of the same substance as God and in the spiritual image and likeness of God!
And just as I am perfect, whole and complete, each and everyone is perfect, whole, complete, eternal and immortal. I declare each and everyone is open to receive the spirit, intelligence, love and the gifts of peace, love, joy and abundance to live a life filled with health, harmony and happiness. I know that we all look upon each and everyone and everything with love as we know the spirit of God is in everyone and everything for it is all One and all Good. I know and affirm that the consciousness of our communities and nation are raised to one of love, forgiveness, compassion, unity, faith, trust and belief, and it is good and very good. And, I know that this brings about a unity of all in the spirit of love and goodness, which already is what is.
I am so very grateful for the blessings of love, unity and wholeness that are manifested in each and everyone as we all choose to raise our consciousness by going within. I am so grateful for the Power and Presence of Love and Good that are present in everyone and everything. I am exceedingly grateful for the gifts of peace, love, joy and abundance that are already made and our acceptance as we live happy and prosperous lives in peace and harmony with our neighbor. 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!
