Today, let’s chat about something super important: Knowing What You Are. It might sound like a big question, but it’s all about getting to know the real you, the person behind all those thoughts and feelings.
Bentinho talks about this in a super cool way. He says it’s like there’s this awareness inside you, listening to his voice, and guess what? You’re not even trying to do it; it just happens. That awareness is your true self, and it’s always there, even if you’re not paying attention to it.
Imagine a river of good vibes flowing through you when you tune into this awareness. You might feel more chill, like a weight’s been lifted off your shoulders. That’s the start of something awesome – like the first steps on the road to enlightenment.
Ben tells us that getting to know this true self is like making a new best friend. The more you hang out, the better you’ll feel. It’s as simple as that. And the best part? Anyone can do this, and you start feeling the perks right away. It’s like getting a bonus that keeps growing the more you invest in it.
This self-awareness can light up your life, making everything brighter and clearer. And the more you get used to it, the more it’ll show up in your day-to-day stuff, like chatting with a pal. It won’t mess with your convo, but it’ll be there, making you feel super present and alive.
Ben has a fancy term for it – he calls it the “Wide Open Secret.” It’s something so obvious, yet we often miss it because we’re too busy thinking about other stuff. But once you see it, it’s like, “Wow, it was right here all along!”
And here’s the kicker: you gotta trust that this can work for you. If you can imagine that maybe, just maybe, this could make your life a million times better, then you’ve got a reason to give it a go.
All Ben can do is invite you to try it out. It’s totally up to you what you do with this nugget of wisdom. He’ll keep sharing tips, answering questions, and guiding us through this journey, especially now when we’re all hanging out at home.
Remember, every time you listen to Ben’s talks, it’s like a mini-meditation session that helps you connect with your true self. So why not give it a try? You might just surprise yourself with what you find.
Alrighty, before I sign off, here’s a little wisdom nugget from a very old and wise book, the Bible: “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). It’s like a reminder to pause and recognize the deeper part of ourselves, that true self we’ve been talking about.
And now, for that cool quote from Ben: “Familiarize yourself with your natural state, befriend it, and let its luminosity brighten your every experience.”
