Honoring all paths to God
The Celebration Center for Spiritual Living supports the positive transformation of both our personal lives and the world itself.
At the CelebrationCenter 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 CelebrationCenter 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, Muslim, New Age and others are welcome in our communities.
Treatment by Ed Preston, RScP
Today I accept God’s gift of time to play with time itself. I divinely play by remembering playing cowboys and Indians as a child. Then I played a soldier fighting the Nazis. My neighbor girl played mother with her baby dolls. I even remember playing at being a horse, with a rider on my back. I celebrate my ability to cross time in my memories. Now that I’m older, I get to play at being God, by changing time itself.
We each have this gift of God to play with time in our memories and in our dreams and even by just changing our clocks. Last night we got to play with time again as we all remembered “Spring Forward, Fall Back” and we played at being God by changing time.
Today, we are all together in time as we celebrate “daylight savings time” wherever we are. Most of us were asleep this morning when the sun rose an hour later. Tonight we will be awake and aware of the sun setting an hour later, so in our wakefulness we save an hour of daylight. We smile with and as God at “Daylight Savings Time”. So, I realize for all of us that we are Divinely at play with time today.
As a child I was so grateful for my toys. Today, I’m grateful for Time, my new toy. I say thank you, God, for Time and for my ability to play with it like this. We all “saved” some daylight today. So, I spring forward in gratitude and look forward to falling back in love. Thank you for the joys of toys.
As I release these words into the laughing heart of God, and into the Law of Life, I simply accept that we are all here to play, joyfully, in time.
And so it is.
