Bentinho Massaro, has touched upon many aspects of spiritual awakening, personal growth, and the journey of self-discovery. One of the profound teachings that resonates deeply is the threefold path of discipline that the personality undergoes: knowing oneself, accepting oneself, and ultimately, becoming the Creator. Drawing from Ben’s teachings and the insights offered in the text, let’s dive deeper into understanding this transformative journey.

1. Know Yourself
The beginning of any spiritual journey commences with self-awareness. As Ben alludes to, it’s about recognizing the “Gremlin” within us. This isn’t about our true self but rather, the imposter self, the conditioned part of our psyche that whispers constantly in our ears. Whether it’s biases, judgments, or incessant thoughts, this Gremlin has been cultivated over years due to various external factors and past experiences. In essence, it’s like a protective shield, often formed in childhood, to navigate an imperfect world. While the Gremlin might have served us in the past, recognizing it becomes essential to differentiate between our authentic self and this imposter.

2. Accept Yourself
Once we identify the Gremlin within, the next step is acceptance. Resisting or fighting these conditioned parts only entrenches them further. By acknowledging and embracing them, we begin the process of healing and integration. This acceptance doesn’t signify resignation but rather a loving acknowledgment of all parts of ourselves. It’s an invitation to be kinder, more compassionate, and understanding towards our journey.

3. Become the Creator
The pinnacle of this spiritual journey is to realize our innate potential and essence – that of the Creator. This doesn’t denote a god-like figure but rather the powerful source energy that is present within all. When we become the Creator, as Ben emphasizes, our personality becomes transparent. We no longer operate from a space of ego but from pure, undiluted consciousness. This state of being is free from judgments, biases, and conditioned responses. It’s a state of pure, unconditional love and awareness.

In Ben’s words, to truly embark on this journey means recognizing how we continuously ‘un-enlighten’ ourselves. It’s about constantly checking in, being aware, and choosing the path of higher consciousness. By doing so, we not only empower ourselves but also pave the way for a life that’s more aligned, harmonious, and fulfilling.

β€œTo know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain, is freedom, salvation, enlightenment.” – Eckhart Tolle

In the journey of Becoming the Creator, it’s crucial to remember that the path is not linear. It’s filled with moments of deep insights, periods of stagnation, and sometimes even regressions. But with persistence, awareness, and love, the journey towards recognizing and embracing our true essence becomes not just achievable but inevitable.
