The Truth About Us
New Thought metaphysicians believe, very simply, that the Universe is fundamentally spiritual—it has intelligence, purpose, beauty and order. Whether we call it God, Spirit, energy, or Universal Intelligence, every person, place and thing is an expression of this spiritual Universe. We believe Universal Intelligence is within us, as well as around us, and that we are conscious of it.
At the Centre for Spiritual Living, we believe that God is a loving infinite Intelligence, operating through and in all of life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through classes and study we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. The philosophy we teach and practice is practical and applicable to daily living. Life lived in accordance with spiritual principle has been proven to be more fulfilling. Spiritual Principles, or metaphysical laws, are as reliable as the laws of physical science.
There is a scientific aspect to Science of Mind®. Ernest Holmes, the author of this classic text believed that there exists a body of knowledge available to all about spiritual laws. These Laws are in operation in the Universe at all times and under all circumstances. He taught that “It is done unto you as you believe” Matt. 9:29. Our perceptions and our expectations create our reality. Through meditation, prayer and study, we can learn to apply these spiritual laws. We can uncover unconscious beliefs and improve our lives and have a positive effect on the world.
