We’re diving into the idea of the true self. What is it? Well, it’s that part of you that’s not just your thoughts or feelings. It’s not about what you look like or what you own. It’s something way deeper and way more real.
Imagine you’re at a busy park. Kids are playing, people are jogging, and you’re just sitting there. Now, take a moment to just… stop. Stop thinking about what’s for dinner or that text you got. Just be there, really there, for just a couple of seconds. That feeling? That’s a peek at your true self.
Bentinho talks about this a lot. He says it’s like when you’re super relaxed and not wanting anything. That’s when you can feel the true self the most. It’s like the wave of you melts back into the big ocean of everything.
To get this feeling, Ben suggests to just let your mind chill out. Don’t think about anything. Do this often, and it’ll become a habit. You’ll start to feel more peaceful, like you’re part of something huge and amazing.
Now, this isn’t just about sitting back and doing nothing. It’s about being really focused on being relaxed. Kind of like if you’re trying to save a bug from a pool. You’ve got to be careful but also super chill about it. That’s what meditation is like.
The more you practice this, the happier you’ll get. You’ll feel strong and free, like you can handle anything. And that’s pretty awesome.
Remember, it’s not about just being empty and blank. It’s about feeling the love and joy that’s always there. It’s about being one with everything, which is super deep and super cool.
So, let’s get real about this true self stuff. It’s not just sitting around being bored. It’s about being alive in a way that’s more than just your everyday stuff. Give it a try!
“Your true self is like a wave that remembers it’s part of the ocean, vast and connected to everything.” – Bentinho Massaro
The Bible has a beautiful verse that relates to this idea. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” It’s like a reminder to pause and recognize the bigger picture, the true self that’s part of something divine.
