The Power of Being Moved
In a world filled with emotions, how often do we find ourselves genuinely moved? When we hear a heart-rending cry of despair, we can’t help but be touched, impelled to send love and light or take compassionate action when possible. Bentinho Massaro, a contemporary spiritual guide, often emphasizes the importance of this genuine connection with others.
We live in a vast world where billions are in anguish, desperately searching for clarity. They yearn for God, for love, for liberation, and an end to self-judgment. Their cries resonate in the ether, echoing the profound human desire for connection and understanding.
We have witnessed throughout history how one person’s determination and integrity can spark massive changes. Bentinho often mentions the iconic Gandhi, a single human being who, despite his frailty, catalyzed a colossal shift in human history. This is the power of being resolute, of standing firm in one’s convictions despite challenges and adversities. Gandhi’s legacy teaches us the significance of being the change, a sentiment Bentinho passionately echoes.
But what does it mean to be moved? To be genuinely affected by another’s pain and act upon it?
It’s about honor and integrity, as Bentinho describes it. It’s not just about abiding by values and morals; it’s about a deeper alignment with the Divine, with our higher calling, and standing by it regardless of opposition. It’s about serving others selflessly, about putting their needs before ours, and recognizing our interconnectedness. As Bentinho profoundly puts it, when we reach a certain threshold of spiritual understanding, service to others becomes automatic. It’s no longer a choice; it becomes our very nature.
We live in privileged times where many of us have access to teachings and resources that enable our spiritual growth. We’re blessed with the opportunity to consciously work on ourselves. Such privilege demands gratitude and a sense of responsibility to pay it forward. By deeply immersing ourselves in God’s love and stepping out of our personal bubbles, we can make a meaningful difference.
As Bentinho suggests, why not dedicate the first hour of our day to God? To meditate, to reflect, to align our intentions, and to see beyond the immediate confines of our lives. This intentional start can set the tone for our day, urging us to act with love, kindness, and a genuine desire to be of service to others.
In Bentinho’s words, “seek ye first the kingdom of heaven,” which is God’s love. When we find it, when we truly understand and embody it, service to others becomes an automatic extension of our being.
So, as we journey through life, let us be genuinely moved by the pain and joys of others. Let us serve with honor, love without conditions, and strive to make a difference, no matter how small, in this vast, interconnected web of existence.
