Understanding Our Deepest Self: The Key to a Happy Planet

We’re diving into a fascinating topic: how understanding our consciousness can help create a happier, more harmonious planet. Bentinho shares insights on this journey.

Consciousness: The Heart of Our Being

At our core, we are more than just our thoughts and feelings. Bentinho suggests that our deepest level of being, our consciousness, holds the key to resolving our problems. When we align with this inner essence, our actions and thoughts naturally contribute to a more enlightened, joyful world.

Why Focus on Consciousness?

The state of our world reflects our inner state. To bring about external change, we must start within. How do we relate to ourselves? Are we aware, responsible, and confident in our inner journey? These questions guide us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and, by extension, the world.

The Power of Awareness

Consciousness is about the power to know and exist. It’s about recognizing our presence beyond thoughts. Bentinho invites us to shift our focus from our thoughts to our natural state of awareness. This simple practice can reveal our true nature – the clear, ever-present ‘I am’ that experiences life.

Enlightenment: A Journey Within

Enlightenment, according to Bentinho, is about connecting with this awareness. It’s about recognizing that we’re always aware, regardless of our thoughts or feelings. This understanding is key to experiencing our true self.

Your Role in a Happy Planet

By understanding and aligning with our consciousness, we contribute to a happier, more balanced planet. Each of us plays a part in creating a world that understands itself and interacts with compassion and harmony.


“To know oneself at the deepest level is not only a personal journey of enlightenment but a gift to the world, fostering a planet of harmony and joy.” – Bentinho

The Bible also touches on the concept of inner awareness and its impact on our outer world. Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” This suggests that our inner state is the foundation for our actions and interactions in the world.
