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

I Call Forth Love

I Call Forth Love

By on October 16, 2017 in Prayer of the Day

Treatment by Rev Faith Woods

 

 

I caught the happy virus last night when I was out singing beneath the stars.

It is remarkably contagious –So kiss me.   Hafiz

God is Love. Love is all there is.

I am surrounded by and made from that Love.  Within my being is unconditional Love And that is what I call forth now.  I call forth this love from each person reading this prayer, from Celebration Center, from all Centers for Spiritual Living groups, and from every individual who studies Truth.

I speak my word now and as I call forth this Love it quietly pervades our every activity.  As I call it forth again, it rushes forward to soothe perceived wounds and wrongs.  Again, I request that love show itself in a mighty way, and it permeates all edges to soften and heal.

Back to the beginning – God is Love and Love is all there is and we remember we are swimming in the ocean of Love.  I become fully present and open to re-cognizing it.  Love is where I sprang forth and Love is where I reside, and Love is truly all there is.  I can be nowhere else.  It is and I am and You are and We be.   As I continue to call forth love as a practice, my eyes open, ears hear and actions that enhance the physical world come automatically through me.  I love and love returns.  I become a way-shower of Love. The world that works for all begins here and now with each of us.

I recognize the Law as a nourishing form of Love.  It allows my words and knowing to show up in my physical world.   I have planted the seed of love in action.  That seed is nurtured and shows up in our world in expected and unexpected ways.  Knowing what is in my heart, the Law brings it forth.

I am grateful as I put this love in action.  The release of this prayer completes the circle of love and I simply say – and so it is, amen.

“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, ……   Kahil Gibran
