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

Treatment by Reverend Faith Woods

 

From Science of Mind, p. 626: “There is that within me which knows, understands, accepts, believes recognizes and embodies. I know and know that I know…”

One Love. One Life. One Source. One Divine Presence. One Spirit. One.

One Love fills me. One Life animates me. One Source fuels my being. One Divine Presence spills forth from me and One Divine Presence spills forth from you. The very “being” I am is the very “being” you are.

The circle of Life is the “O” in One. This chant becomes my mantra today::
From you I receive
To you I give.
Together we share
From this we live.

With full expectation of receiving, I simply speak my word for a deeper understanding of giving and receiving from all expressions of Source. May I see Love, Beauty, Truth and Goodness at the core of each expression. May I see this in the physical world; may I feel it in my body temple; and may I let Love, Beauty, Truth and Goodness flow from me in return. May I know at every moment there is a never-ending supply of Good as I become ever more generous in my sharing of resources.

I speak this word for all reading this prayer, for Celebration Center and all Centers for Spiritual Living. I speak this word again and expand this prayer to include all expressions seeking to bear witness to the Divine Presence in their lives.

I feel these words – this prayer – moving now from mind to Law and from Law to full expression. Gratefully I let go and proclaim – and so It Is.

Affirmation: Throughout this day, I stay awake to new understandings and deeper engagement with the Divine.
