AND SO IT IS!
Observations (1968): If we believe that God is Substance, then we believe that the Substance which is God manifests to us daily in supply. What if that supply is what we call a house, a suit of clothes, an automobile, money with which to pay the rent or what-not -- Substance is one end, supply is the other. Substance is the cause, supply is the effect. And we are so constituted that each one of us has direct access to the limitless Substance, and, therefore, may become a channel for Its infinite supply.
Living the Science of Mind (1984): Jesus announced the Principle of Substance and Supply, or the Law of Opulence. He clearly taught that it is right for us to have what we want provided we subject our desires to the Divine Will and Divine Necessity. Just what do we mean by Divine Will and Divine Necessity? Divine Will means the nature of God or Spirit, and Divine Necessity means the Law of Cause and Effect.
Science of Mind Magazine: When we establish within our thought a nonresistance to that Power which is greater than we are, we are at the same time accepting within ourselves a stability that is the stability of the universe. We find ourselves secure, for we know that we are part of That which causes change but is never affected by any of the changes
The Science of Mind (1938): In our ignorance of the truth, we have misused the highest power we possess. And so great is this power -- so complete is our freedom in it, so absolute the domain of law through it -- that the misuse of this power has brought upon us the very conditions from which we suffer. (p. 36.4)
The Science of Mind (1938): And so, we suffer, not because suffering is imposed upon us, but because we are ignorant of our true nature.

The Science of Mind®: the Spiritual and Material Universe are One The Science of Mind is the core teaching of Centers for Spiritual Living; it is a philosophy that integrates spiritual truths with science and physics. Simply put, the Science of Mind teaches the unity of all life. Intentions and ideas flow through a field of consciousness, which actually affect and create the world around us. This idea is common to most major religions and is supported by the teachings of psychology and quantum physics. In the Science of Mind, we believe that the secret to living a successful life is to consciously choose positive and productive thoughts. Put another way, “As you think, so you become.” It is the intention of Centers for Spiritual Living to use Science of Mind principles as a force for good in our world by transforming personal lives. In the Science of Mind, we believe that the fields of religion and science are complementary, and that science will prove what the mystics have said for thousands of years about the nature of God, human beings, and the Universe. These beliefs are being proven even now by many quantum physicists who have found that the universe is made up of energy that cannot be destroyed and is infinitely intelligent.
About Us Concordia Center for Spiritual Living invites you to visit our spiritual community to explore new possibilities for your life.

Our Philosophy Concordia Center for Spiritual Living supports the positive transformation of both our personal lives and the world itself. At Concordia 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 Concordia 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, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, Caroline Reynolds, and Eckhart Tolle, as well as many others.
