Exploring the Infinite: Understanding the Oneness of All
Imagine there’s only one thing in all of existence, and it’s everything that is. Now, think about how this one thing can know itself. It’s kind of tricky because it needs something different to look at to understand itself. That’s where all the things we see and all the different experiences come in. They’re like a bunch of different flavors in a giant cosmic ice cream shop.
Bentinho explains it like this: this one thing, let’s call it the One, is so huge and powerful that it can make it look like there are lots of separate things—like you and me—even though we’re all actually connected. It’s like a magic trick where everything is really the One in disguise!
Now, the One isn’t just floating around in space; it’s also about what we feel inside. When we chill out and get really quiet, we can feel this big mystery. It’s kind of like when you know something without having to think about it—that’s intuition. It’s like having a superpower where you just know stuff.
Bentinho says we can ask ourselves big questions and if we’re patient, the answers will pop up from inside us. He believes that everything, like every single thing you can think of, is the One. It’s like a diamond that shows different colors when you look at it from different sides, but it’s all one shiny stone in the end.
And you know what’s really wild? The One is so full of surprises that anything you can imagine can happen. That’s because it’s got endless possibilities.
So, what’s the point of all this? It’s about realizing that we’re all a part of something way bigger than just our own little lives. And when we start to see the world this way, it’s like taking off sunglasses and seeing the colors for the first time—it’s brighter and more amazing.
Even though it’s hard to wrap our heads around, just knowing about the One can change how we feel and live. And that’s a pretty cool mystery to explore, don’t you think?
“In the mystery of oneness, we find that every part of existence comes from and resides within the illusion of that existence being present as a world or as a universe. This is the awe-inspiring unity from which all life stems.” – Bentinho
Bible Reference: “For in him we live and move and have our being.” – Acts 17:28. This scripture echoes the sentiment that all existence is interconnected and that we are part of a larger, divine whole.
