YVCSL is an ALL-VOLUNTEER run organization and we need your help! Volunteering is an opportunity to connect with our members and to create a positive impact. We believe serving our Center through volunteering is crucial for creating a healthy, vibrant world. Through volunteering, you can help shape the future of your Center, community and world!  

We start with the simple proposition that a Higher Power, known by many names in many different traditions around the world, is a force for good ‚ÄĒ not only around, but also within every individual. Our doors‚ÄĒand hearts‚ÄĒare open to all who are seeking wisdom, inspiration and connection.

Please join our team of volunteers, we are an awesome group dedicated to make our Center beautiful for YOU and us!  

This Tuesday the volunteer crew started at 8am and worked until 2:30pm – WOW! Karen and Steve worked hard on the trenches all around the¬†Center. Digging, removing dirt, cutting roots, placing landscape cloth on it – all supplied by SuperSteve – and filling it in with all new gravel – also supplied by SuperSteve. Lots of ¬†gravel. Two truckloads full of it. We all owe Steve big time. The gravel, the landscape cloth, the wear and tear on his truck with the heavy loads and how hard and fast this guy works is amazing. What they are doing is an all professional job and it will last. Soon we’ll be there. Jill was hula hoeing and racking the grounds about everywhere around the Center like in a dance, creating huge piles of debris. All gone to the dump with Steve. Werner was doing what Karen and Steve did, working the trenches and moving the dirt to an ever growing pile. Chuck came too and helped raking and shoveling. Brad and Karin were working in the office, mainly computer work and later helped with the yard work. Cindy paid us a lovely visit and we ALL wore our masks and practiced social distancing of course. ¬† We believe in the Good ‚ÄĒ in the universe, in each other and in ourselves.

With much LOVE, Karin

Hear Tricia talk on….
‘The many faces of LOVE.’

“Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed. It can be ignored. to the extent that we abandon¬†love we will feel it has abandoned us Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. through the prowesses of love, we can let go of past history and begin again. Love heals, forgives and makes whole.”
                                                       Ernest Holmes

“We should believe that God is the invisible partner in our life and affirm that divine love goes before us and prepares the way.”

True love is the sincerest form of kindness.

Denise Myers – “We can conquer anything with faith and love”

by Denise Myers

We have been and are in a unique situation. Like all life experiences we cannot always change them when we want, but, we can choose how to react. There in lies our point of power.

Faith and love will see us through. SOM page 158 Available to All
I tend to focus on the helpers as Mr. Roger’s mom suggested to him. When we see them we can change our focus to kindness and the many people who put others first, before there own care. There is a silver lining surrounding most crises. Don’t get me wrong I am not making light of any of it. There have been and still are many instances of heart break. I am just wanting to switch our focus from all negativity to positivity. From fear to love and gratitude. We cannot be scared and grateful at the same time. They are mutually exclusive emotions.
The following is from the SOM page 522/paragraph 2 and 3
Love dissolves all fear”Greater than fear is love, love dissolves all fear, casts out all doubt and sets the captive free.Love like the river of life flows through me and refreshes me with it’s eternal blessings.Love cannot be afraid, it is fearless and strong and is mighty in it’s works.I can accomplish all things through the inner light of that faith in the all good.Which fills my very being with it’s powerful presence. Love casts out all fear.

The love of the all good is in me, and through me. That love goes out to meet, all who come into my atmosphere. It radiates to all and is flowing through all. My love within me is perfect. They love within me is perfect.”

We are the light for many, when we are able see a larger view than most. We can look through a kaleidoscopic, and see the brilliance of its beauty, when others can only see the black eye, that many of them created as a joke. Remember you twisted it around while someone encouraged you, saying you could see it clearer if you twirled it harder, which,was a ploy for your eye to get blacker. It is a good analogy of how sometimes we try so hard, to see what we think should be there, to make everything clearer, that instead it rubs off and gives us something we don’t want. When we try too hard to force even the beauty, it sometimes backfires when we least want it to. When we relax and let the beauty flow it is phenomenal.

When we get too wrapped up in the outcome we often miss the journey and make it darker than necessary. Joy is not a destination, it can and should be part of out daily travels. Life has no dressed rehearsals, no instant replays, or daily do overs. If you miss being happy today, you missed it. We can never live that same day again. We can paint the picture of our future and walk right in. Feel how amazing that life is. Are you joyous, victorious and feeling peace beyond our understanding. If we take 5 or 10 minutes before you go to sleep to plant the seeds to create your perfect picture, it can marinate in your subconscious and attract the pieces you need for your personal puzzle. The jigsaw puzzle that is the picture of your future today. Yes, I said your future today as we must feel that we already have what we desire. The feeling is the magic where manifestation occurs. Feel it all with great emotion and happiness. Be enthusiastic about life.

The kaleidoscope of life is always bright and ever changing but the more light we pour on it the brighter it becomes. Light is the darkness’ biggest fear.
There has been a lot of fear created in this last few months. We are in the middle of something reminiscent of a sci-fi movie, only it is real. We need to take care of ourselves and each other, and be diligent but not panic.We need to, for our own sanity ,stay in love and gratitude to keep the boogeyman man away from controlling our life. God is all there is and God is love. This is a time to show our fortitude and compassion to all. Free of judgement of any kind for we never know what others are going through or what their breaking point is. We can only live in the moment, right now is all we have. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery today is a gift, that is why we call it the present. Eleanor Rosevelt.
I am sure most of us have had time to contemplate the current conditions and also look within. Do we like what we see. Are we that best us that we can be. We only have this minute right now to live, love forgive and share our light to illuminate any dark spots,that our shadow persona is creating. We can all find and use this living, breathing,positive energy and eradicate our shadows for good ,once and for all.

I believe these natural events are to show us, the world is one and we are all united. This is the first time in my life time, that something is effecting all of humanity and does not play favorites. This virus does not care what color you are, how rich you are, what religion you embrace or what your gender or sexual orientation is. It has put everyone on the planet on notice. WE ARE ONE.
We can all go through this and just carry on as we did before or we can awaken from our mandated isolation as a bear greets the spring, after hibernation, joy fully embracing the light, the warmth and the new growth. We can decide to rewrite our story and give it all the joy, energy and love we want. Live each day as if it was your last, for one day we will all have a last day. 
Perhaps we can plant seeds now, even in the soil of our virtual life, so that our exit from captivity will have fresh new shoots to enjoy and savor.
We cannot be sad when we live in the moment. We are sad when we have regrets from the past or fear of the future. We are not meant to live in a flight or fight mentality. The stress this creates on our brain and our bodies is an Adrenaline high. It is not good for us. We are meant to use that drug to run from the bear or lion, not to marinate in it over and over again. Our bodies are amazing. They are equipped to take good care of us, if only we can learn to turn our stress response off and save all that adrenaline to run when necessary. If we can teach ourselves to pray and meditate when are responses are rattled we will be happier and healthier. Sometimes we become so conditioned to live in our adrenaline high, from all stressors in our life that we miss it,When in peace and try to recreate it. That is very common. We get hooked on a feeling, just not the best one for us to live in.

It is interesting how with isolation and social distancing the world appears to be closer than we have ever been. I know in my lifetime I have never seen the whole world united about anything before. It is unfortunate that it is something so dire that created our unity. But, it still is unity.

Live in love and kindness. Smile, it is contageous, infect someone with happiness, today, right now. Enjoy life and live it bravely, ferociously and in the moment.. Get out your bucket list, start at the top. Make it happen. Perhaps we can learn to stay in rhythm and harmony as we all dance to our own and different music. Maybe we can bring our world together in a virtual circle and each of us sing the peace song in our own language. Music and love have no nationality or communication barrier.

There have been amazing stories of love and kindness.a number of people drove for hours to lend their camping trailers for emergency medical personnel to use so they could be closer to their families and still be able to isolate themselves, at least they could still see and wave at each other. Airlines flew people for free, so they could get out of hot spots, to some where safer. Tyler Perry paid the bill for numerous seniors shopping between 7 and 8 am in Krogers and a number of stores nation wide. Some suburban areas had block parties and kept social distance anyway. Some of these neighbors had never met before. Medical students offered to shop for vulnerable people, so they could stay home. Musicians and other entertainers put on free internet shows to keep people’s spirits up. Many have donated time and food to help those in need. A dentist in 29 palms is making free cloth masks for seniors and other vulnerable people. Many people cheer on the medical staff at 7pm every night, in many countries, even appreciation can be contagious . Zoom is doing a booming business keeping people connected. Many people have spent major quality time with their families.I am sure some jobs will evolve and it will change how they work and live. I am sure many kids will remember this time as a time when their parents played and played with them, and they weren’t in a hurry. HBO ran some free movies. People put hearts in their windows to show love and appreciation to all. Louise Hay would be so proud. I am sure she is still smiling. Time to revisit Louise’s You Can heal your life book and maybe even a class.
If you find that all of the goings on right now are affecting your mood and happiness, that is quite a normal human reaction. It is ok not to always feel ok. It is just not in our best interest to stay there. One of the best ways to feel better is doing something for someone else. I remember reading a true story of a man who called his psychiatrist totally depressed. The Dr asked him about how he felt and asked if there were any people in his apartment building that needed help. He stated that there was one old man who never seemed to be able to keep his front step clean and swept. He told his patient to go sweep the steps and call him back. After he accomplished this he called his Dr back and was asked how he felt. He stated that he had forgotten he was depressed. The Drs prescription was to volunteer somewhere. In this time of social distancing perhaps we can call and check on someone, donate food to those in need, shop for someone more vulnerable than us or just post some positive stuff on the internet. It all helps others and takes us out of ourselves and allows us to think of someone else. There are always ways to be of service to others. That tends to be a very good antidepressant. 

Remember we are here to live, love, forgive and spread our light, to serve each other with kindness, compassion and none-judgement .In doing these things we create joy in our own heart. It bubbles and is overflowing like an expensive champagne.

We each have our own gifts and we can use our hands and hearts to help each other. We can be the light when the darkness seems to take over the world. We can be the optimists when others have had their hope shaken. We know we are the light and see it as the face of God in others.
Let us know the truth of our spiritual perfection, know that God is all there is and all is God. There is a rainbow after the storm and we can be victorious in knowing our truth.

Let everyone we meet and interact with know they are loved. Let’s love ourselves and each other. Let us remember that we are spiritual beings having a human experience of life. Let us remember that this moment, right now is all I have. Let’s live loud, joyously and in vivid color. There is no place for us to be small, we are meant to be large as life itself. There is no one else quite like us, we are all as unique as snowflakes and fingerprints. We are meant to be the amazing and profound individuals that we are. Be proud, be brave run in when everyone else runs out. Take life on in ways you never imagined but do it now right now, say yes to life ,for now is all we ever have.

Thank you Denise…another great talk!

This Coming Sunday…

There may just be a few ideas that can 
help you through some of the 
challenges that life throws at us.

Ernest Holmes said,
“For man to be raised up into the Spiritual being¬†
for which he was designed, he must take his own unfoldment in hand and give conscious direction to the evolutionary forces within.”

Joseph Campbell said
“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

Akiva Goldsman said‚Ķ”It’s not what happens to us, it’s what we do with it.”


I shine my Light.
I am Light
Light is within me.
Light surrounds me.
Light protects me.
I am Light.

Karin has some wisdom to share with us on how to… “Change your Thinking – Change your Life”

Karin says…”Watch and be inspired to live the Life you always wanted to live.”

Ernest Holmes – Founder of the Science of Mind philosophy: “Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.”

Yogananda Paramahansa – Founder of the Self-Realization-Fellowship: “In the state of love, no matter what you do, it‚Äôs going to be good.”

“Ding Le Mei – Founder of the Institute of Mentalphysics”
Whatever the Creator is: I am. I am the Creator in human form.

I know that I am in the embrace of a warm, loving Presence
forever seeking an outlet through me.

This will be Karin’s first talk at YVCSL, and we are all excited!

Sunday Service Live stream 3/22/20

Well here we are…interesting times…uncertain future…many different thoughts.
What to do? Where to turn? Who to trust? Whew!
Turning slowly…observing…listening…exhaling.
Listening. Exhaling.

First I apologize for the late response as I have just returned from a road trip.And it’s from the forest to twilight zone…quite a transition.
So here we are….our wonderful little growing community abruptly separated, when we most want to be together.
A time when hugs are most wanted,we are asked to stand apart.
So how do we continue to stand together and hold our community tight? How do we stay connected in a way that continues our Spiritual growth and our Spiritual Center.
Karin and Werner are doing their best to figure out how to keep us all connected by putting something together for us to have a Sunday Service tomorrow. You can check it out at The Yucca Valley Center for Spiritual Living Facebook page livestream at 10am.https://www.facebook.com/YVCSL/

Joe say’s he will be at the Center at 9:30 am¬†for those interested. If somebody needs, he’ll be there. At the very least for prayer and meditation. Please keep yourself safe.
With all that is happening…for now…we will be taking one week at a time.
We need to continue a presence at the Center, to protect the property,so if possible, take the time to stop by the property often, to hula hoe or pick up trash, pull weeds, trim trees, whatever you can. It will take all of us to continue the maintenance and the expenses of the property. Please support in any way you can.
The bills continue to come.We will be setting up several options for donations. Checks can be mailed to 7434 Bannock Trail, YV 92284

If you have Internet skills to keep us connected, please email Karin.
Out of time…BLESS US ALL!


Concerning the Coronavirus and Sunday Service at YVCSL:

We are a small group with plenty of social distance and we hold the belief that we have a Power that is Greater than any fears that are forced upon us. Therefore, we go to prayer first, but we also have to be and act like responsible adults. 

We understand the concerns of some about being in public, especially if you consider yourself to be at risk! In this case, please follow your own intuition about your health, and if you have to, please stay home and take good care of yourself. Of course, we must attend to our physical form with Intelligence. 

As our Founder Ernest Holmes wrote, ‚Äúwhen things look the worst, is the time to do your best work.‚ÄĚ

We are continuing on with our wonderful Sunday Service tomorrow. It is our belief that we need community and LOVE and connection more than ever before. YVCSL stands strong in this Knowing. We love YOU and ourselves and we believe in your and our greatness!

Remember YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT and you understand that we ask you to follow reasonable precautions: Restrict and limit your handshake/hugging and touching. Wash your hands well with soap and water. Donations of hand sanitizer appreciated. 

Do not bring homemade food and open containers. Instead please bring store bought simple packaged treats for the time being. 

As always coffee will be brewing.

If you choose to stay home, please let us know that you are okay. We miss you! We will be looking into methods by which we can provide on-line support and messages of love, prayers and connection.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. 

We are looking forward to Joe’s talk and seeing our spiritual family tomorrow. 

With much LOVE,
