Our Perspective on God

New Thought: You Express 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 Carol Haave, RScP

In La Jolla, CA today.  It’s the start of a beautiful day with the ocean whispering in the wind and kids already screeching in sheer joy by the pool — it’s 7AM here.

     On this day, I am grateful.  I am grateful for that which is God — the alpha and the omega, the infinite.  I am grateful for my time here on earth and the beauty that surrounds me every day.  I am grateful for my family and friends and all my blessings.  In this moment, I know that God is here.  I know that I can “reach out” with my mind and get the answers to whatever questions I have in this very instant, if I remain open and listen for that still, small voice within.  I know that I am not alone and that I have nothing to fear.  I own the best of who I am and eliminate my fears by taking that next best step as I listen to my internal guidance system.  God leads me forever forward to my highest and best calling.
     Grateful for my time here and for all my blessings, I know that not just for myself but for others as well.  As each of us “owns” the best of who we are, we change the future in ways that can’t even be imagined.  Knowing the power of my words and the collective thought of all who read this, I release these words to the Great Manifestor knowing that they are as true now as they ever were and will ever be.  And so it is.

Nestled in a shopping center, our sanctuary stands alone, while our offices sit above the adjacent shops. There is always ample free parking, and you can catch a snack afterwards at the popular Vietnamese deli next door.
