Living Life Without Limits: Embracing the Here and Now
Life is a beautiful symphony, one that plays continuously, creating a magnificent melody around us. But how often do we stop to truly listen? Bentinho Massaro has a unique perspective on this.
The Mind’s Chatter: A Background Noise
As we go about our daily routines, our minds are in a constant state of chatter. Every new thought, every past regret, every future anticipation, and every present concern vie for our attention. This unending dialogue in our heads often prevents us from fully experiencing the “here and now.”
Relax, and Focus on the Present
The simple act of relaxing and distancing ourselves from our thoughts can open us up to a new kind of awareness. This isn’t about suppressing thoughts or pushing them away. Instead, it’s about letting them be, without getting tangled in them. By doing so, we begin to recognize a more vivid, awake sense of presence.
In this space of relaxed focus, we can acknowledge our very existence. We become acutely aware of the ever-present now, a clarity that might elude us when we’re deep in thought. This awareness, this space of being, is constant, irrespective of our external circumstances.
Embracing the Limitless Space
It’s interesting how we often overlook the space around things. We focus on the chairs in a room but forget the space that allows the chairs to exist. Similarly, we get caught up in our thoughts and forget the consciousness that allows these thoughts to manifest.
Ben beautifully illustrates this by urging us to recognize the space in which our experiences unfold. This space, this consciousness, is always present, unaffected by the happenings of life. By tapping into it, we can experience peace, clarity, wisdom, and empowerment.
Benefits of Recognizing Our Consciousness
By recognizing this consciousness, this fundamental essence, we anchor ourselves in a stability unaffected by external events. Problems transform into invitations, urging us to delve deeper into our being. We become more equipped to approach life with compassion, wisdom, and grace.
In the biblical context, Psalm 46:10 states, “Be still, and know that I am God.” This encourages us to find solace in the stillness, to understand the vastness of our being, and to recognize the divine within us.
Life, in all its beauty and chaos, offers us countless experiences. But to truly live without limits, we must occasionally pause, breathe, and become one with the moment. As we tap into this limitless space of consciousness, we uncover a depth of being, enabling us to live more purposefully and joyfully.
