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!

October Topic: Authenticity & Overcoming Adversity

October Topic: The Authentic Self, the Ego & Identity.

Finding one’s Authentic Self takes courage, and it can be difficult due to the programming we have been subjected to through our entire lives, whether through society / local communities, schools, media, parents, etc. Be mindful that the energy of all of these affect us. For example, the energy of local communities impacts us, especially children. 

Moving toward authenticity entails breaking free of the matrix, becoming sovereign and taking responsibility for one’s life, and making a commitment to act in alignment with one’s true thoughts, beliefs, and desires, instead of accepting those that others have created for us. 

Many of us are recognizing that we came to Earth with a life mission. Part of who and what we are is to discover or remember what this mission is. It’s highly likely to be connected with something you are passionate about, something you have a natural affinity for, something that brings you the greatest joy. It’s okay if you don’t fully know yourself. Searching for and finding one’s life / soul purpose can be a fun adventure. It’s important to put out a clear intention that this is what you wish to do. 

Knowing oneself can be a lifelong journey. If you don’t know who you are, start now. 

As Grandmother Mulara so eloquently states… “With each step you take, you will learn how to grow your heart with practical feet.”


Excerpt from the Deep Dive -  “Authenticity & Overcoming Adversity”

We have all faced challenges throughout our lifetime whether great or small, and most of us have grappled with questions such as, “Why was I born now?” and “Why am I here?”

In the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, Frodo said, “I wish it need not have happened in my time.” 

“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

What do you think Gandalf means by his statement—“we have to decide what to do with the time that is given us?” Perhaps he is acknowledging that things are not always as we want them to be, and yet we can still choose to make a difference in our own way. Life can be very challenging and it’s how we choose to respond to these challenges that shapes us. It’s the knocks and pressures that shape a rough diamond into a beautiful sparkling gem. Life is meant to be lived to its fullest, in alignment with our purpose / mission, without allowing obstacles or the need for perfection to stop us.  

Leonard Cohen said, “Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There’s a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

Ringing the bells that ‘still can ring’ means doing what you can still do and not worrying about being perfect. Our imperfections make us beautiful. It is our vulnerabilities that often give us strength, letting the light in, connecting us with God / Source and our inner wisdom and power.

​​“We are all on our own unique journey.  You will all be highly developed and advanced in ways that other people aren’t, and you will have areas to learn that other people can teach you or share with you. And I think that’s wonderful. Don’t ever feel less than anyone else.”—Becky Parkes
