Beginnings

Choices faced when hearing the teachings of Bentinho Massaro

I am not sure what to make of Bentinho Massaro. His teachings can be a little extreme, but are fascinating possibilities. I think that looking into his teachings might provide a better understanding of his lessons than me summarizing them. You might focus on different aspects than me, and come away with another meaning altogether.

His teachings line up with many NDE’s I have read but are hard to process in such vivid clarity. With an NDE a person is having a personal vision. It is up to you to see if it applies to your reality. Bentinho Massaro points to ‘you’ personally. It makes one realize that difference between stating ‘I am’ this, vs ‘you are.’

I do not know that path Bentinho Massaro took to discover his teachings. Yet, he is a Soul I’d like to communicate with in the afterlife, to find out.

Right, now I am in the process of picking my reality. Even if you don’t agree with Bentinho, you can see how your choices are shaping your reality.

Take the different ways I could interpret Bentinho himself, and look at how it could shape my reality. First, I will start with a statement that followers of Bentinho could get offended by. I do not mean I believe this, but conventional teachings from society have not been forgotten by me.

I could notice that Bentinho offers some videos free, but his online courses cost money. So Bentinho is a con-man whose teachings convince others to spend money they do not have, by telling them that ‘lack’ doesn’t exist. He is so mercilessly manipulating the New Age mentality, that he convinces people to leave their life behind to follow ‘pipe dreams.’ Are his teachings no different than those of someone starting a Cult?

If I felt too challenged by Bentinho I could always dismiss him this way. It is easy to dismiss things that challenge our entire view of reality. Yet, I enjoy a learning of a new way to view reality. Mainly because I am not happy with the reality around me. A reality where so much is off balance, and I feel too small to handle even a fraction of the problems.

I just listed the ‘logical’ scientific way that teachings get pushed away. Another approach would be to say Bentinho has been fooled by the devil, and he is leading others astray. Or perhaps that Bentinho is delusional himself. (This same dismissal was tried when people faced the challenging teachings of Jesus.)

Anyways, I was giving an example of how I could shape my reality. Each of these choices would lead to a different outcome, but there are also other outcomes. Perhaps I listen to Bentinho and discover how his teachings could benefit me. I take what resonates with my view of the world, and leave what doesn’t fit out. Bentinho is just teaching how he views the world based on his own experience, as we have different experiences, not everything will line up. I do not need to dismiss him because he is so extreme, but I can respect his passion. Even in the teachings that seem so out of alignment with myself, I can perhaps, find a bit of wisdom. I do not have to adopt something, to consider it, and learn from it.

The other end of the spectrum being that I take Bentinho’s teachings as the unveiling of the Universe. He becomes a prophet that I follow word for word, not really taking the time to think for myself. I think Bentinho himself warns against doing this. Yet, it doesn’t mean that some will not choose this option.

Can you see how I am choosing to shape my reality? It is a spectrum from utter dismal to acceptance all the way up to mindless acceptance. I just need to take my pick.

You’d have to listen to Bentinho’s teachings to understand, why I am going into so much detail about shaping reality. I will try to remember to post a link later. I am at work right now, and cannot be seen visiting youtube.
