Understanding and Shifting Your Definitions for Personal Growth

In our journey through life, we often come across moments that feel like standing at a crossroads, unsure of which path to take. Bentinho Massaro shares insights into how our definitions of the world around us and ourselves can significantly shape our experiences and our path to enlightenment.

Imagine you’re listening to a friend who speaks with such passion that their words not only reach your ears but also touch your heart. That’s how Bentinho speaks about the power of definitions. He believes that the way we define things, especially our limitations and capabilities, can either hold us back or propel us forward.

One moment, you might feel stuck, believing that enlightenment or personal growth is a distant dream. But then, you hear a perspective that shifts everything. Bentinho suggests that by examining and changing our definitions, especially those that limit us, we can accelerate our growth. It’s like lifting a heavy weight off your shoulders and suddenly feeling lighter and more free.

But what are these definitions? They are the beliefs and views we hold about how long it should take to achieve enlightenment, what we must do to live empowered lives, and what happiness and success look like. According to Bentinho, challenging these definitions is like turning up the volume on your favorite song — it amplifies your energy and joy.

This process isn’t about removing complexity from our lives; it’s about adding to it in a way that we can joyfully handle. Bentinho describes life’s complexities as opportunities to become more skilled at being conscious beings in our bodies. It’s about embracing both the paradox and complexity of life, which in turn, makes us more fluid and efficient in our existence.

To those who fear losing sensitivity or the essence of who they are in pursuit of growth, Bentinho offers reassurance. Growth doesn’t mean losing sight of what’s valuable; it’s about illuminating and exploring it more deeply. The journey isn’t about simplification but about enrichment and expansion of our understanding and experience.
