What Turns You On?

Have you ever stopped to think about what really excites you? I’m not just talking about the big moments, but also those small things that light up your day. It’s not random – the things that excite us do so because they are a part of who we are, guiding us towards our true selves.

Bentinho suggests that our excitement is like a compass pointing us towards our true path. It’s about finding what sets us on fire, what makes our daily life feel vibrant and fulfilling. It’s not just about pursuing pleasure, but about connecting with what truly resonates with our deepest selves.

One thing Ben emphasizes is the importance of following this joy fearlessly, even when we’re scared. Our excitement is our guide, leading us to express ourselves fully and authentically. However, this doesn’t mean disregarding others. Ben advises doing this with respect for others’ free will and integrity.

He also talks about seeing life as an endless array of possibilities. When faced with obstacles, we can shift our perspective, choosing a different reality where the obstacle doesn’t exist. This concept is rooted in the idea of parallel realities – the belief that there are endless possibilities all around us, and we can choose which to engage with.

Ben’s teachings remind us that our experiences are not just about what happens around us, but how we respond internally. We never truly experience circumstances directly; instead, we experience our reaction to them. This means we have the power to choose our state of being, regardless of what’s happening externally.

This brings to mind a spiritual reference, Proverbs 23:7, which says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” This verse underlines the idea that our inner thoughts and feelings shape who we are.

What turns you on isn’t just a fleeting question; it’s a gateway to understanding and embracing your true self. It’s about tuning into your joy and following it fearlessly, creatively navigating life’s endless possibilities.
