Living Everyday
Wonder-- Nature


To affirm is to declare that something is 100 percent true, and to stand in that truth — even in the face of all evidence to the contrary.  Affirmations are positive statements of intention that direct your focus to what you want to experience.


My perseverance is stronger than
any challenges I face.

Liliane Pilot, RScP

Liliane Pilot has spent much of her life as a Spiritual Seeker.

She is an artist, writer, speaker, teacher and musician. For 10 years Lily was part of the CSL Edmonton Music Ministry and earned her Practitioners license in 2012. As a singer songwriter she has performed all over North America with 4 recordings to her credit, and she’s a two time finalist for the EmPower Positive Music Awards. She also is trained in The Use of Sound and Music in Healing, has a degree in Arts Administration, was a Licensed Practical nurse, was a property manager for many years, and if you go back far enough, she was even a welder in a truck trailer manufacturing company. An avid traveler, she has lived in several countries and explored many more. All of these things have informed her Spiritual Journey.

She now runs a nature retreat with her husband Doug, has opened a small art gallery at The Domes, and is happily nestled in the loving arms of CSL Las Cruces in the Heart of Downtown.

They do prayers and meditation for 10 mins twice a day to support Ukraine!
The Centers for Spiritual Living purchased the camp,
and the teen camp will be there this year. 
Our August 2022 tithe recipient is the Community of Hope's
Camp Hope, or “Tent City,” is located behind the offices of Mesilla Valley Community of Hope (MVCH). One of the biggest challenges Camp Hope faces is that it does not qualify for any state, federal, or foundation funding. Camp Hope serves as a temporary living site for homeless individuals working toward their own home or apartment. Camp Hope also assists in providing tents, cots, and misters (the tents can reach temperatures of 130 during the day and often remain 105 in the evening.)

What's On the Calendar?

August 9 - Singing Out will perform.

August 14 - August Board Meeting at 12:30pm after the service.

August 25 - New Thought Luncheon at 11:30am
(Potluck on the 4th Thursday of every month)
We have someone who is interested in leading the drumming circle, but only on a Monday or Tuesday evening.  She is a drummer and can teach as well.  Please let Rev. Bonnie know if the day change works for you.
We need a drumming circle leader to step up to organize and plan these great evenings at CSL. Call the office if you would like to donate your time and leadership.

Like 911, but without dispatching law enforcement

The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) has worked to ensure New Mexicans across the state are aware that the three-digit 988 crisis support line will be available to them beginning Saturday.

The 988 crisis support line is a new, free and easy to remember helpline for emotional, mental or substance use crises. The crisis support line is for people in distress to have someone to call, someone to come and somewhere to go. New Mexico residents will be able to call, text or chat 988, the 24/7 crisis support line to connect with compassionate behavioral health professionals.

The crisis support line beyond serving as a suicide line, it offers mental health support for all New Mexicans to utilize.


People who call 988 are given three options:

Choose Option 1) to connect with the veterans crisis line,

Choose Option 2) to connect with the Spanish subnetwork,

Choose Option 3) to remain on the line and be connected to a local crisis center.


The crisis support line will be connected to crisis centers equipped to respond to text messages for those who choose to text the word “TALK” to 988 instead of calling. Chat will also be available through the Lifeline’s website:


Please call, text or chat 988 if you are:

1.   Feeling sad, confused or angry

2.   Worried about your safety or someone you know

3.   Worried about alcohol or drug misuse

4.   Need information or referrals for local community services

5.   Just need someone to talk to


 If the caller speaks a language other than Spanish or English, then the call centers use a language line to support the caller with an interpreter.

If you have any questions, please contact Marina I Piña, HSD Communications Director, at or Elizabeth Glantz, 988 Project Manager at
