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.

Beauty, inspiration, love, joy, and peace are around us - everywhere.
Take a minute, anytime, to turn within to calm, focus, and become mindful.
I am clear about my heart's desires and I receive them with ease
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!
Make DCSL your Spiritual Home
We believe in creating a world that works for everyone. All are welcome regardless of your level of involvement.

Divine abundance is forever manifesting in my affairs
Today I expect every good thing to come to me, for I know that Divine abundance is forever manifesting itself in my affairs.
I am keeping my whole mind and thought and expectation open to new experiences, to happier events, to a more complete self-expression.
Everything that belongs to Spirit, I accept. Everything that partakes of the nature of Divine Reality, I claim as my own. I identify with success, and I prosper in everything I do.
As I give thanks for the good now flowing into my life, I gladly share that good with others. The more I give, the more I receive. I experience a deeper consciousness of peace and security, for I know that I am in the embrace of a warm, loving Presence forever seeking an outlet through me. My cup runneth over and I exist in limitless possibility!
