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

Missing My Riley

Missing My Riley

By on June 22, 2015 in Prayer of the Day


Treatment by Caron Ward, RScP

I love the first hour of the day…the sun breaks through the clouds and the sky shows its colors, and there is a quiet anticipation of what is to come.  Yet these days there is a bit of sadness that colors my early morning hours for I am missing my Riley and our routine of early morning walks and prayers.  So on this morning, I sit quietly in the stillness of the morning and I pray….

The love of G-d is all there is…IT is the constant in Life, in my life, in the lives of everyone, everywhere.  This love is magnificent, it is powerful, it moves mountains and crosses oceans…it is infinite – there is no place, no space, where this love is not…This love is eternal, ongoing, it has no beginning nor any ending.  This love has no judgement, It’s presence is with and within everyone and everything.

I know that when there is a loss, the emptiness that seems to be left behind is a temporary perception.  The love of G-d is never destroyed, and soon the fullness of that love is once again felt wholely and completely.   So I sit with these feelings of sadness, I allow them to be, as they represent the meaningfulness of life. I allow the grieving, as it is not simply sadness; no – it too is an expression of Love.  I feel the comfort of the eternal Presence with me and I know that the space that I felt left in my life is already overflowing with Love. I am blessed to always know and feel the presence of Love, to feel its eternal energy flowing through me, flowing through all of Life. In this moment, my heart is full of gratitude for the expression of this love as friends, as family, as all who come into my life…

And so it is with this loving gratitude that I begin this day, knowing that these words are true and blessed.  I release them into the Law …it is so… And so it is.

Have an amazing day!
