What We Believe

At Centers for Spiritual Living, we believe that:

 God is one, unconditional love, indestructible, absolute and unlimited source which is within us and all creation. Heaven is not something that we wait for or earn. It is within us, and we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of it.   

We focus our teachings on spiritual LIVING - what you DO proves what you really believe. We honor all life as ONE life – the life of God. Like Buddhism, we honor and respect all sentient beings. We believe that we all share one Consciousness.

We stress living in alignment with God, by living out God qualities such as peace, wisdom, beauty, joy, truth, kindness and unconditional love. We teach and practice non-violence.

The Universe is unlimited abundance. Everyone can live a full, happy and prosperous life. There is no external God who keeps score, punishes, or chooses favorites. Sin is merely “missing the mark.” We are responsible for our own actions. We are punished by our sins, not for our sins. We are always free in this 'now' moment to choose a new way of living that is joy-filled and powerful. We use our God-given imaginations for good, not for worry. We don't deny reality, but we focus on what we DO want. We are not bound by past conditions nor future expectations. 

The universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a universal Mind. This Mind can heal sickness, lack and limitation, and negative conditions. Within us is all the wisdom, love and power needed to create the life of our dreams.
