Living life to its fullest potential is something we all strive for, but often find elusive. Bentinho shares insights on how to break free from our own limitations and live a life that truly reflects who we are. This is not about waiting for the perfect moment or having everything in place before we take action; it’s about moving forward now, regardless of our circumstances.
Reflecting You: Unraveling Your True Potential
When we wait for something outside of ourselves to change before we start living our true nature, we give away our power. We create a dependency on external factors like money, relationships, or career success. But what if everything you desire is already within your reach, waiting for you to take the first step?
Breaking Free from Postponement
Our tendency to postpone our true expression is a reflection of our own delays. Ben highlights that when we start moving just because we recognize our freedom to do so, we tap into a profound power. It’s not about focusing on changing our circumstances but on changing our state of being.
Objects vs. Being
Objects—whether they are material possessions, relationships, or job titles—can become obstacles when we give them power over our state of being. By choosing not to objectify our desires and instead focusing on our inner state, we free ourselves from these self-imposed obstacles. It’s about acting in alignment with our desires, even if we don’t have all the resources at hand.
The Illusion of Separation
The things we desire are symbols, reflections of what we know to be our true self but are not acting upon in the moment. Ben points out that the allure of something like a million dollars is not about the money itself, but what it represents—freedom. By understanding this, we realize that we don’t need to wait for external change to start living our true nature.
From Disappointment to Empowerment
Living a life that doesn’t reflect our true self leads to disappointment. However, Ben encourages us to see this as an opportunity. By moving forward, acting on our joy, and not giving power to our circumstances, we transform our lives from a state of stagnation to a journey of excitement and empowerment.
Your Life as a Reflection
Your life is a mirror, reflecting back to you your own movements, decisions, and state of being. By choosing to act from a place of joy and alignment with your true self, you influence not only your own life but also inspire those around you, creating ripples of positive change.
In the words of Ben, “You cannot be without ego if you keep yourself small… The Disappearance of the ego is to live large, act on your joys, and reflect your true greatness.” This is a call to embrace your true self, live with courage and decisiveness, and let your life be a true reflection of who you are meant to be.
A spiritual reference to support this perspective comes from the Bible, Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” This verse encourages us to break free from external influences and align with our true nature.
