Finding Unity in Consciousness: A Path to Oneness
Have you ever felt like you’re just a small part of a much bigger picture? Bentinho shares insights on how we often see ourselves as separate entities, with our own thoughts, feelings, and responsibilities. But there’s more to us than meets the eye.
The Illusion of Separation
We often identify with our physical or mental state, thinking that’s who we are. But this is just an illusion. Bentinho suggests that there’s a deeper space within us, a pure consciousness that transcends time and form. It’s like a background feeling that we usually don’t notice.
Breathing into Awareness
Take a moment to breathe deeply. Notice any tension you feel. This tension comes from identifying with things that aren’t truly us. By recognizing this, we start separating our true self from these perceptions.
As we let go of these attachments, we start to experience a subtler form of consciousness. It’s like a clear blue sky, free from clouds. This process is about purifying our experience, becoming more aware of our true essence.
Oneness and Beyond
Eventually, we reach a state of oneness, feeling connected to everything. However, Bentinho points out that even this oneness can be transcended. It’s about realizing that we are not just part of the universe; we are beyond it.
The Final Stage: Absolute Freedom
The ultimate goal is to separate ourselves from all forms of consciousness, reaching a state of absolute freedom. This is not about becoming nothing; it’s about being beyond everything. It’s a state of pure, unbounded freedom.
Integrating This Understanding
How do we apply this in our daily lives? It’s about constantly reminding ourselves of our true nature. We are not just our thoughts, feelings, or physical bodies. We are something much greater, a part of a vast, interconnected whole.
This journey towards unity echoes a biblical sentiment found in Ephesians 4:4-6, “There is one body and one Spirit… one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
Remember, this journey isn’t just a mental exercise. It’s a profound transformation of how we see ourselves and the world. It’s a path to true freedom, beyond the confines of our perceived reality.
“True freedom lies in realizing we are beyond everything we perceive. In that space, we find our true essence.” – Bentinho
