Circumstances don’t define Lack. We Do.

Suffering is the difference you feel between the vibration, the state of your True Self, and the state or vibration of your positioned Self (your physical mind based self).

Bentinho Massaro

I never looked at my own suffering that way. I always looked at what I was missing in my current circumstances and thought my suffering was because of that. Because I didn’t have enough money, because I didn’t have a job I loved, because I couldn’t do the things I wanted to do.

For a long time, I was under the assumption, as it truly felt like the truth, that I was suffering because of my circumstances.

From Conceptual Knowledge to Experiential Wisdom.

Have you ever learned a new language? You begin with words and small sentences and you practice them over and over. You speak them very consciously and you have to think about what to say and how to say it.

Simple little sentences take effort and you really have to think about it.

But then, after a lot of time practicing and even preferably going to the country which language you’re learning and practice your speaking, you notice that the language flows more naturally out of you.

When you’re in that specific country you notice you’re picking up “street slang”, nuances in intonations and words your language course doesn’t teach you. You pick up the way of speaking from the people around you and you start to copy their body language and flow of speech.

When watching Netflix is good for you!

A while ago I felt victimized by my circumstances. I felt scared, alone and insecure about my experiences. Because of that, I started to binge watch Netflix (Suits to be exact). Completely under the impression my True Self was guiding me and that in Suits an answer to an unspoken question was hidden.

I thought in Suits there was an answer to a question I was still oblivious of.

But nothing was further from the truth.

I was scared and didn’t want to deal with the emotions/beliefs and ran away from it. Thinking I was being guided by my True Self.

One enormous benefit of not truly being yourself!

Yes. There’s a huge benefit of not truly being your true self. It might not feel that way, but there is. And I will tell you what that is.

But first I would like to explain the difference between the true you and the not so true you. Because, who are you, when you’re not being your yourself? You have to be someone, right? So who would that be?

Being your Not-So-True-Self happens very early on in the period of your life where you cannot yet take care of yourself. You come in contact with people who love you and want the best for you, but who are for themselves, not their True Selves. Coming from their Not-So-True-Selves, they teach you things that you adopt. Beliefs about yourself and the world that are limiting in nature.

How to accept when you don’t want to

I used to have a lot of trouble with the concept of Acceptance. Being in the Now and being acceptant of my current situation. I didn’t want to accept what I didn’t like. How could I accept something that I don’t want in my life? How could I accept something while desiring something else for myself?

I was afraid that if I accepted what I didn’t like, I would keep it or attract more of it in my life.

But that’s not how life works. Life actually works exactly the opposite.
