WORKSHOP – The Good Life and the God Life: How to be Spiritually Awakened and Materially Abundant

By on September 23, 2016 in News

Some people have as their priority acquiring wealth, while others prefer spiritual development. For most people, there’s no happy medium, with the focus on one inhibiting, in their minds, the attainment of the other. This class enables both to unfold gracefully. Buckminster Fuller, the 20th century genius, analyzed Earth’s resources, and found there’s enough for […]

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

Express Something

Express Something

By on September 28, 2016 in Prayer of the Day
Treatment by Jenn Fay, RScP
Greetings,
   I’ve been reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book
Big Magic. It’s about creativity & all the lore 
around this seemingly elusive experience.
If you feel a creative nudge or have a curiosity,
follow it, go for it! She & I agree that’s a Divine
Nudge towards something. I call it following the 
thread. It has lead me to such Wonder. 
 
   Following her advice that rings true to me,
I’m putting my words out there in a nontraditional
prayer-poem. Not everyone likes poetry, but I’m 
not hear to please everyone, thank you, God for
that! :)
Express Something
Beloved knows All that Is
All that I am
Together, we craft Life, make changes, plod along
Then, sprint towards the Rapture, the Wonder
========
My feet land on firm ground
Then, confusion….
Sacred stepping stones strategically placed
 in every direction
Eeny-meeny-miny-moe
Sustain or create a new status quo
 ========
Momentarily, the “same old” creeps in…
Heart broken, open with disappointment
Heaven shouts, EXPRESS SOMETHING!
For God’s sake!
No… for God’s Delight!
========
Finally, my Compassion for Being human
Even when I miss the mark,
the Urge celebrates the perfection within
my missing, my falling, my failing, my crying…
 ========
For God’s Delight… ah, there, I see it, I feel it
I am cradled in the hammock
 The Sacred Bolts of fabric
wrapping me in hues that soothe, sparkle, and comfort
 ========
It’s just a poem
Just a creation allowed to move through Life
Let loose of it! It’s the Divine’s!
Let the next, the next, and the next Inspired Idea come
 ========
One Life – Together Expressing
Sacred Mystery moves to… 
Another Idea, another poem, another piece of art,
piece of God, another something
Infinite Joyful Creations, always being released
And so it is!
