Have you ever felt like just a small drop in the vast ocean of the universe? Bentinho Massaro shares a compelling perspective that might change how you see yourself and your connection to the world around you. Inspired by Ben’s teachings, we explore the concept of “Drop or Ocean” to help us understand our true place in the vastness of existence.
Imagine you’re a single drop of water, feeling small and separate from the vast ocean. From your perspective, it’s hard to see how you could ever be part of something so immense. Ben explains that while it’s true we may feel like individual drops, each of us holds within the essence of the ocean itself. This idea isn’t about literally becoming the ocean but understanding that at a deeper level, we are interconnected with all that is.
From the moment we’re born, we start building our identity, our personal “drop” in the ocean. This identity is shaped by our experiences, beliefs, and the world around us. It’s easy to get caught up in this individuality, feeling separate and isolated. But here’s where the magic happens. By shifting our consciousness, by imagining ourselves taking an elevator up a building, we start to see more of the city – or in this case, more of the ocean.
Ben uses this beautiful metaphor to explain how we can elevate our awareness. The bottom floor represents our individual self, focused on our personal experiences and perceptions. As we allow ourselves to “take the elevator up,” we begin to see and experience more of the world around us. Each floor represents a higher level of consciousness, a broader perspective.
This journey isn’t about rejecting our individuality or the unique experiences that make us who we are. Instead, it’s about embracing them as part of the larger whole. We’re encouraged to explore and expand our consciousness, to dream big and believe in ourselves. This expansion isn’t just a mental exercise; it’s a transformation that allows us to experience life more fully, more deeply connected to all that is.
So, how do we start this journey? It’s about courage, dedication, and prioritizing our growth above all else. It’s about recognizing that our active experiences, our reality, are just one part of a vast, interconnected universe. By dreaming big and allowing ourselves to explore higher levels of consciousness, we can begin to see our lives and the world around us in a new light.
Remember, you are not just a drop in the ocean. You are the ocean in a drop. Every moment, every experience, is an opportunity to connect with the vastness of being that exists within and all around us. So, dream big, explore your consciousness, and allow yourself to become more aware of the incredible connection you have with the universe.
Expanding your consciousness isn’t just a mental exercise; it’s a transformation. It allows you to:
- Dream bigger: Break free from limiting beliefs and envision possibilities beyond your current perception.
- Connect deeper: Feel a profound sense of belonging and interconnectedness with all living beings.
- Live more fully: Experience life with greater joy, purpose, and understanding.
