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 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.
As I come to this holy moment, I recognize that the power of Love is all there is. Love beyond the breadth, the depth and the height I can imagine. Love that only my soul knows. This love is all inclusive, with peace, abundance and eternal well-being found within the Loving Presence. This boundless Love raises my awareness. Every leaf, each grain of sand, and every person shines in my mind’s eye as Love – reflecting the abundant nature of the power and Presence of One.
This power that creates universes and worlds created me and flows continuously through me. I open myself to this love that surrounds and permeates me. I recognize that the inclusivity of Love can exclude no one and no thing, therefore I am Love incarnate. As I breathe, it must be love that I am breathing. As I walk and talk and recognize truth, it must be truth that I am living in. The peace, well-being and abundance that are found within Love are found within my being also. I relax into it the spaciousness of Love. As I know this truth and accept it for me, I recognize and accept it for you.
I speak my word from this sacred space.
Possibilities open before me as I release all arguments of lack, all sense of not enoughness, and all ideas of “should”. I release any sensible argument for me not being fully present to the greatness, wonder and awe of this Life. I open and accept the truth of plenty, and more than I can imagine. I accept the truth that Centers for Spiritual Living is a way-shower of Love as the norm. I bless our philosophy as a path that includes peace and beauty, respect and camaraderie. I see Celebration Center as a community gathering place where beauty is seen and spoken freely. Expansive awareness flows into the heart and mind of each one and truly our Center becomes a beacon of Love.
Powerfully and quickly I release this prayer into the law of God, the law of reflection. It is done and I believe.
And so it is.
