Embracing True Freedom: Liberating Ourselves from Conventional Definitions

In our pursuit of freedom, we often find ourselves constrained by societal norms and definitions. However, Bentinho’s perspective challenges us to explore a different path—one that prioritizes inner harmony and liberation over conforming to external expectations. According to Bentinho, any action that makes us feel freer, unburdened, and inwardly healthier should be embraced, even if it contradicts conventional wisdom.

True freedom, as Bentinho suggests, lies in listening to our authentic selves and following what brings us joy, excitement, and a sense of harmony. It requires us to let go of preconceived notions of what is deemed healthy or acceptable and instead trust our intuition. While this may lead us to engage in activities that defy societal norms, as long as we maintain our integrity towards others and respect their free will, we are aligned with this notion of freedom.

However, it is crucial to understand that true freedom does not absolve us of all responsibility. We must still take ownership of our lives and actively participate in producing our means of sustenance. The fear of failure and the belief that we must take care of ourselves often create unnecessary pressure. It is essential to recognize that subscribing to these beliefs doesn’t guarantee success. In fact, it can trap us in a cycle of self-doubt and fear.

To break free from this cycle, we must question the underlying beliefs that tie our sense of responsibility to the fear of failure. By examining our perspective on responsibility, we can discern between heartfelt responsibility and the burdensome expectations we impose upon ourselves. Heartfelt responsibility involves taking care of ourselves while honoring our genuine desires, talents, and aspirations. It liberates us from the game of failure and empowers us to embrace our true potential.

In our quest for freedom, we might occasionally venture into uncharted territory, engaging in actions that challenge societal norms. These actions may seem “crazy” to the part of our consciousness that clings to the fear of failure, but they are often the stepping stones to wholeness. By breaking free from the limitations of societal expectations, we can rediscover our authentic selves and redefine our understanding of success and responsibility.

Ultimately, true freedom lies in the alignment between our actions, inner harmony, and integrity towards others. It involves embracing the courage to question conventional definitions, to shed the fear of failure, and to listen to the whispers of our hearts. In doing so, we unlock the transformative power of freedom, leading us on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and fulfillment.
