Who are we?
The DuPage Center for Spiritual Living (DCSL or the Center) is a member of a global organization called Centers for Spiritual Living with over 500 centers worldwide. Dr. Ernest Holmes founded the organization in the early 20th century. He believed there was a thread of truth running through every great religion and philosophy, and it was his desire to pluck out that thread, leaving behind all superstition, dogma, and religious opinion. He took that thread and created principles called the “Science of Mind,” these are the principles and beliefs we continue to teach and live today.
Theme for September
Peace in God
Pearls of Wisdom
Peace comes from the absence of fear, from a consciousness of trust, from a deep, underlying faith in the absolute goodness and mercy, the final integrity of the universe in which we live, and of every cause to which we give our thought, our time, and our attention. If we would have peace outwardly, we must first realize peace inwardly.

In the unending circle of life, the perfection of creation is always creating anew and I am one with this creation and newness.
I know that no matter whathappened years ago, months ago, week ago, days ago, and even minutes ago - it has served its purpose and it is done.
With each new day, I am free to choose the thoughts that create my experiences regardless of the things, people, and events that enter my life path today.
I am grateful for the opportunity to make choices about what I will see, hear, think, and feel about everything in the experience of life I have today.
I am excited to approach this day with compassion, forgiveness, and the wonder and awe of the child that is at the core of my being.
I release this into the action of the Law which always acts on that which I send forth from my thoughts. My thoughts are things and I choose good ones.
And so it is ... and so it shall be!
Make DCSL your Spiritual Home
We believe in creating a world that works for everyone. All are welcome regardless of your level of involvement.

PEACE IN GOD
Peace: Mind resting in the realization of all. –Ernest Holmes
How good it is to recognize the Power and Presence of the living God. I know there is only One Life, and that is the life of God. I know this life that is God, is the Divine Intelligence that governs the universe. This one Life, sustains all life. I know pure Spirit, is the Love, the Joy, the Wholeness, and the Abundance that is the core of all. I know Divine Spirit, is the Peace that surpasses human understanding.
I know this indwelling Spirit resides within each one of us, right now. I stand anchored in the oneness of the almighty Spirit, as it continues to reveal itself as me, and as each and every one of us. I open my heart to the overflow of the celestial peace that is the cornerstone of certainty that all is well, and all is in complete harmony in the Divine within.
I know this Peace is vibrating throughout every home with and without walls. I know God is the Peace that restores balance and order in every community throughout the world. This dynamic Peace is the pulse of resolve in every situation, condition and circumstance. I know humanity is uplifted in this moment, for it is the Peace in God that is within us that propels us forward to express harmoniously the love that we all are.
I am so grateful for the remembrance of the Peace in God that is within us now. I stand in
gratitude for the harmony and the quietude of peace as it reigns supreme in every community. How grateful I am to know that peace prevails, and I give thanks for this Peace right now. It is with great enthusiasm that I release this word unto the law, knowing that it is so in the Mind of God, right now! And I let it be, And So It Is.
