Our Perspective on 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.

Treatment by Caron Ward, RScP

 

Autumn….November…a time of celebration and gratitude…today we are midway between Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day – both holidays of recognition.    I am the daughter, sister, and sister-in-law of those who have served our country in time of war, and in time of peace. I recognize the sacrifice of our veterans and I am thankful that, because of their service, I wake up every morning in this country of free expression and opportunity.

I eagerly anticipate Thanksgiving – the one time of year that all my sisters and brother and their families come together; a time of love, comfort, food, and shopping together on Black Friday!  I recognize the gift of family that I have been blessed with – my blood relatives, my friends who are my chosen family, and my spiritual family of the Center…and so I begin this day with a prayer of thanks – giving.

I celebrate the One Great Provider; the Giver of all gifts, the Power greater than all powers;  I celebrate this Presence that I know as G-d.

I wake up to experience the magnificence of Creation in the clear blue sky, in the brilliant light of the sun, in the stunning golds, oranges, and crimson colors of the leaves that blanket the ground.  In the moments of silence before the activity of Life begins around me, I am grateful for these gifts, and grateful for the light and love that surrounds me in each moment.  I sit in awareness of the joy and wonder that fills my very being.  I recognize the blessings that each day brings – the unconditional love of my dog that greets me each morning, the warmth and comfort of my home, the friendship and love in the voices, texts, laughter and hugs that continually remind me that I am One with all of Life.

I smile in this recognition of all that I am blessed with… and as One with G-d, I know that I am more than simply the receiver of gifts.  I know that as a unique expression of this Divine Presence, I have my own special gifts to bring to Life.  I open my heart and soul to giving more generously of my Self, using my own power in big ways, in small ways, in all ways that bring even more light and love to this world. I know that as each of us expresses our own unique gifts, the brilliance of that light and the power of Love is multiplied,  bringing ever more magnificence to our experience as individuals and as One.

Gratitude fills me! I celebrate all that is! For I know that it is all G-d!  I am thankful for this knowing, for this faith in the One, the Great Provider, that allows me to both give and receive.

And so I release these thoughts, these words, into the Law, knowing with absolute faith that they are true,

And so it is…

Blessings to all on this beautiful autumn day…in all ways, and always!
