Have you ever thought about your life as a blank canvas? Imagine you’re a painter, and every day, you get to add something new to your masterpiece. When we’re young, our canvas is empty, and we feel full of possibility. It’s like anything can happen, and everything is exciting.

Think back to when you were a child. You probably didn’t worry about whether your drawings were perfect. You just enjoyed the process of creating. You were happy, spontaneous, and natural. But as we grow up, things start to change.

We become more focused on the details, on getting everything just right. We start to think that what we paint on our canvas says a lot about who we are. Bentinho, a spiritual guide, talks about this. He says we get so caught up in our creations that we start to lose sight of ourselves. We become a mix of thoughts, beliefs, and images that others have given us.

But here’s a secret: we don’t have to keep painting the same picture. We have the power to change it, to create a new reality. Bentinho encourages us to quiet our minds, to stop adding layers to our self-image, and to remember who we truly are.

The Bible echoes this idea in Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.” It’s a reminder that sometimes, we need to pause, to stop the constant painting, and just be. In that stillness, we can find a deeper sense of self, one that’s not tied to the images on our canvas.

You are more than your thoughts, more than the emotions and people in your life. You are an infinite creator, capable of painting any scene you choose. It’s time to embrace your canvas of life, full of possibility and joy.

Remember, you don’t have to keep painting the same figure in every scene. You can create something new, something that truly represents who you are and who you want to be.


“Embrace the canvas of your life; you are the artist, and every stroke is a new possibility.” – Bentinho

“The only way to get out of it is to shut up because you don’t have the clarity to dream consciously quite yet.” – Bentinho Massaro

“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” – Genesis 1:3


  • You are the Creator, not just of your reality, but of the very paintbrush you use to create it.
  • Liberation doesn’t lie in changing the dream, but in waking up from it.
  • Your true nature is boundless, untouched by the dramas that unfold on the painted canvas.
