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.

This Week's Affirmation

I give total trust to tHe Divine Good in Life  to always deliver my Perfect answers

Rev. Kathleen Mertes

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!

I claim the One Universal Mind as my Mind now.  Connecting in Oneness, I live and move and have my being in Spirit.  I am a Divine inspiration of Life Itself.  This Life shows me the beauty and good that is always present to enjoy.  As I see more good and experience more good, I believe and trust more.

I know that I am guided and directed into the good and joy that I am here to discover and live.  My life is one of belief in Spirit and demonstration of my heart's desires.

The more I believe, the more I receive.  I am open and receive health, wealth, and happiness.  My relationship with Spirit flourishes the more I affirm my oneness and trust.  

The gift of Faith always strengthens me.  How grateful I am for believing and seeing good.  So I release these words and know they are so, and so it is.
