Here is our official Declaration of beliefs:
We believe in a Loving and Forgiving God, A God that is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and omniactive.
We believe in equality and inclusiveness, that all people of all races, color, creed, gender, and sexual identity are created in the image and likeness of God.
We believe in the freedom to explore and embrace all religions and spiritual teachings – we understand that great truth and wisdom has been taught throughout the history of religion, mysticism, and spirituality.
We believe that Gods’ Love is the most powerful spiritual force on Earth and that it heals humanity’s hurt, pain, and suffering.
We believe that the power of prayer can heal all false beliefs that prevent us from recognizing our true spiritual inheritance.
We believe that Master Spiritual Teachers like Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha and those like them are the perfect examples to all people. They are the standard for which we strive everyday to be more like.
We believe in the eternality of spirit and in the ever upward spiral of life after death.
We believe that selfless-service is a blessing of our awakened Oneness with all beings and that serving others without desiring anything in return is the blessing of self-less service.
More than ever – we are being called to delve into those places within ourselves that are hidden from the light.
True enlightenment doesn’t come from sitting on a cushion meditating. It comes from a willingness to go within and confront our own shadow, to be honest with ourselves about our own character defects, our weaknesses, and self judgments. It comes from developing a greater understanding of our “core wounds” and why we do the things we do. It comes from loving and embracing ourselves right where we are.
We open up and accept ourselves as we move into a time of much greater transparency. It is the time of “Revelations” when all is being revealed. Hidden agenda’s are being exposed and we are being called to live – our most true and authentic expression of self.
In addition, the Centre for Inspired Living believes, 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 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. Our beliefs are in harmony with the basic tenets of all the world’s great religions.
Members of C.I.L. believe that God is a loving Infinite Intelligence, operating through and in all of life, never separate from anyone or anything. Through Sunday Celebration Services, classes, and personal study we come to understand our oneness with this indwelling Divine Presence. The way of life we teach and practice is learning how to live in accordance with spiritual principles.
At the Centre for Inspired Living, we believe there is a body of knowledge contained in the one hundred plus spiritual/universal laws which operate in the Universe. Three of the more well known spiritual/universal laws are:
The Law of Cause and Effect
Everything happens for a reason. For every cause there is an effect, and for every effect, whether you know it or not, there is a specific cause or causes.
You can have anything you want in life if you can first decide exactly what it is, and then do the things that others have done to achieve the same result.
The Centre for Inspired Living will help you develop your vision and purpose for life empowering you to become a mindful co-creator with Spirit/God in manifesting the quality of life you have always deserved.
Law of Attraction (The Secret)
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.
You continually attract into your life the people, ideas and circumstances that harmonize with your dominant thoughts, either positive or negative.
You can be, have and do more because you can change your dominant thoughts.
At the C.I.L. we will inspire and teach you how to change any negative dominant thoughts that may be working ineffectively in your life, as well as teach you how to improve and expand on your positive dominant thoughts, thus enhancing the quality of your spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well being.
The Law of Mental Equivalency
The world around you is the physical equivalent of the world within you. Your main job in life is to create within your own mind the mental equivalent of the life you want to live.
Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. There is a direct correspondence between the way you think and feel on the inside and the way you act and experience the world around you.
Your relationships, health, wealth and position are mirror images of your inner world.
The C.I.L. encourages you to connect to your ideal life through prayer, meditation, and visioning and teaches you how to hold that thought until it materializes around you.
At the Centre for Inspired Living we believe that for anything to function effectively there needs to be some kind of structure. There are over one hundred laws that govern our universe called Universal/Spiritual Laws. These laws apply to everything, everywhere at all times in our universe. These laws enable our universe to function in an orderly fashion.
Without these laws there would be chaos in the universe. By studying, understanding, cooperating, and applying these Universal/Spiritual Laws in our daily lives we can lead the most successful, fulfilling, abundant, joyful, and healthy life possible. Successful people have an intuitive understanding of these Universal Laws applying them consistently in their lives.
