What We Believe

Our Guiding Principles

We believe that the Universe is fundamentally spiritual, and that it has intelligence, purpose, beauty and order.

 

Our beliefs are in harmony with the basic tenets of all the world’s great religions and for that reason we honor all paths to God. Whether we call it God, spirit, energy, or Universal Intelligence, every person, place and thing emanates from this spiritual universe.

 

We believe this Universal Intelligence is within us, as well as around us, and that we are conscious of it.

We believe that God is a loving intelligence, operating in and through all life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through classes, 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 there is a body of knowledge about spiritual laws that operates in the Universe as Cause and Effect.

 

We teach that “It is done unto you as you believe” and “As you think, so you become.” In essence, our thinking and our expectations create our reality.

It is in studying and applying spiritual laws that we can change our unconscious beliefs and create improved conditions in our lives.

Each spiritual community within Centers for Spiritual Living teaches Affirmative Prayer and other spiritual tools designed to help us lead a spiritual life, think positively, and love deeply.

Simply put, at Center for Spiritual Living Laurel, we provide spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and make the world a better place.

What We Believe

Declaration of Principles by Dr. Ernest Holmes

 

WE BELIEVE in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one, indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation, but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.

 

WE BELIEVE in the individualization of the Spirit in us, and that all people are individualizations of the One Spirit.

 

WE BELIEVE in the eternality, the immortality and the continuity of the individual soul, forever and ever expanding.

 

WE BELIEVE that heaven is within us, and that we experience it to the degree that we become conscious of it.

 

WE BELIEVE the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.

 

WE BELIEVE in the unity of all life, and that the highest God and the innermost God is one God. We believe that God is personal to all who feel this indwelling presence.

 

WE BELIEVE in the direct revelation of truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature, and that anyone may become a revealer of truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.

 

WE BELIEVE that the Universal Spirit, which is God, operates through a Universal Mind, which is the Law of God; and that we are surrounded by this Creative Mind which receives the direct impress of our thought and acts upon it.

 

WE BELIEVE in the healing of the sick and control of conditions through the power of this Mind.

 

WE BELIEVE in the eternal Goodness, the eternal Loving-kindness and the eternal Givingness of Life to All.

 

WE BELIEVE in our own soul, our own spirit and our own destiny; for we understand that the life of all is God.
