Connecting Consciousness Monthly Spiritual Topics

Overview

We create new monthly spiritual topics each month. Coordinators use these topics to facilitate discussions to give members the opportunity to talk about real-life situations and to share insights, ideas and strategies. The spiritual topics are also posted on CC’s internal social connecting platform where members from around the world engage in conversation and share personal thoughts. These topics are designed to give points of discussion around self-awareness and spiritual development to enable and empower each of us to become the best version of who we are!

Objectives

The Monthly Spiritual Topic process was created to serve two primary objectives: To offer spiritual dialogue and education for members and to provide Coordinators with relevant topic materials to facilitate engaging member discussions. This saves time for Coordinators who no longer need to search for topics and find materials to present. It also gives Coordinators the opportunity to further develop their facilitation skills.

Aims

We are all on a unique journey to grow and find greater meaning, purpose, and joy in life. To do this entails a deep focus on one’s inner self. As 13th-century Persian poet, Rumi, stated, “Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

 

To this end, the Monthly Spiritual Topics are designed to help members:

 

  • Know themselves better (self-realisation)

  • Connect with their inner wisdom

  • Develop conscious focus and intent

  • Live from a heart-centered space

  • Express compassion and be in service to everyone

  • Align with their Higher/Divine Self

  • Manifest positive change for themselves and the collective

Topic: Personal Values 

 

Months: Feb & March 2024

 

Which do you think is more beneficial for spiritual growth—keeping an open mind or having a closed mind with fixed ideas? This is not a trick question. There are advantages to opening one’s mind to new concepts and possibilities and to challenging previously held beliefs. There are also benefits to having a clear idea of one’s truths.

However, when one holds on to their own beliefs too tightly, it can become a shortcoming and/or a spiritual trap. When one rigidly holds onto their beliefs, they may come to believe they are highly virtuous, and only those who share the same beliefs are virtuous. This can lead to judging others, placing oneself (or a particular group of individuals, religion, race, etc.) on a pedestal and believing they are better and more righteous than others. 

Other spiritual traps related to values are setting high standards for others (it is best to focus on oneself instead), expecting others to share the same values, and looking down on others who follow a different set of values. 
Expecting others to share your personal values often starts with good intentions. For example, a vegan who shares a deep love for animals may feel this affection so intensely that she wants others to feel the same and, as a result, looks down on those who eat or wear animal products. Another individual meditates twice a day and, through his practice, has deepened his connection with his Higher Self. Because he wants others to experience this as well, he zealously shares his specific practice along with the belief that meditation is the only way to achieve this deep connection. 
Yet we need to be mindful of thinking we know what is best for another individual or what they are here to experience. These examples illustrate the importance of focusing on oneself when it comes to desired values and ideals. You may recognise focusing on oneself (inner work) as a common theme through our spiritual topics. There are many paths up the spiritual mountain, and different people choose different paths.
