Choice Versus Clarity

When we’re clear there is nothing to choose between.

I don’t believe in choosing—I believe in clarity. When we’re clear there is nothing to choose between. When there is a choice to make, it means we have forgotten who we are—we have dropped from our highest potential—and should use that seeming choice-moment as an opportunity to pause and remember who we are and what we are about at the highest level. Then the choice disappears and decision creates the clarity we seek.

Manifestation follows clarity. Clarity follows decision or true remembrance. Only the lower mind perceives choices, paths, options and consequences. You are none of these.

So much chaos and confusion simply disappears when we remember and decide on who we truly are. Then clarity and its consequent manifestation will follow suit. Stay ambiguous or doubtful, however, and you shall forever seem to be surrounded by the illusory enemy of options.

Choosing implies duality and victimhood. Deciding is singular and intentional.

Making THE Difference

There is a difference between making a difference and making THE difference. Anyone willing enough can reach into their interior resource of infinite power and clarity to contribute to making THE difference. We’re just fucking lazy and we’re still comfortable enough with tolerating that ruining our potential. But... ultimately I believe in all of you—and that faith in your ultimate selves will never fail over here. Because baby, I know you better than you know yourself. And that’s a good thing.

Make use of me. Don’t follow me, but make use of me. Love has no opposite. Faith cannot be conquered. Peace.

Anybody who makes anything that I do or say about me—whether as a lover or as a hater—completely misses the point of everything I do and say.

Don't Listen to the Crowds

Be a light unto yourself. Be something this world has never seen before. That’s why you are exactly who you are.

Don’t listen to the crowds. Not for validation, and not for guidance. The crowd generally does not know who it is or why it does what it does. That’s why it's the crowd. If the crowd likes what you do it’s generally not a compliment. If it does not understand you, you’re probably on the right track—showing them something new.

Dive deep within, find that truest part of yourself, and spend your entire life living up to that truth; become it through and through.

Learn, but never let the crowd sway you from your truth. They have no direction. Instead, be, radiate and speak—when relevant—that truth. Be a light unto yourself. Be something this world has never seen before. That’s why you are exactly who you are. It will remind others they can become true people too.

You all contain the spark of the Infinite in a unique way; only you can carry that torch on the Creator’s behalf.

Who you are cannot be put into words. When the concept-ridden mind subsides, the Light of the Infinite begins to shine through. Then, words are no longer for you; they are merely tools to assist others in awakening to the Infinite within, too.

Shepherds Versus Mirrors

Shepherds need to see beyond the reactions, haste and conclusions made based on limited oversight...

Too hasty. Too quick to judge. Too quick to conclude.

Those are weaknesses a shepherd, let alone a mirror, cannot afford him/herself to be distracted by. 

The shepherd needs oversight. Sheep react in haste, fear and limitation. Shepherds need to see beyond the reactions, haste and conclusions made based on limited oversight—to gain a fuller picture of the landscape and see what truly needs to be dealt with, if anything.

The mirror, in reality, does not deal at all with anything. He/she merely awaits forever without end from the attained depths of infinite peace, ignoring any and all reactions, thus becoming essentially one with All.

The truest solution to all problems lie in his/her beingness itself, though few know how to interact with that so directly as to extract this truest solution.

The Mirror Being’s actions are natural, unpredictable, intelligently inspired by an impersonal intelligence, spontaneous, fearless, difficult to categorize, impossible to understand by the average mind, and can range from extremely passive or invisible to incredibly ambitious or visible.

The unpredictable, uncategorizable Mirror Being will seem dangerous and threatening to the ego-based entity who is used to labeling its world in safe compartments, but in truth, the Mirror can be trusted with one’s very life and is as much in love with you as your own Higher Self is.

The Mirror Being, in truth, is least to be feared in this world out of all entities, and their paradoxical expression is a gateway into liberation for those ready to embrace it.

The Mirror Being Teacher

 A Mirror Being teacher does not show up (in full) unless strongly called for. The desire in the student needs to be urgent and promising-of-results enough to offset the sacrifice of engaging in the speaking and the guiding of minds.

The call has to be made with the whole beingness of the entity backing up the call.

The Mirror Being only spends attention using their physical and mental apparatus on the most worthwhile causes in the relative world.

He or she naturally senses where the highest degree of energy wants to flow in this Grand Illusion, since he or she is one with the collective Self (as well as beyond it), and has transcended the biases and motivations of the smaller or individual self.

It’s the people of this world who have polluted it with their vibrations of separation. It is up to the shepherds—those aware and devoted enough to make a true difference—to correct this imbalance. Your life is NOW. Live from the highest vibration you can tap into and train yourself everyday in resting beyond the mind, realizing the spirit that is the source behind and within all things. Then, interact with this dream-world from that space. Be the state you wish the world to realize. Working in teams of like heart around the world is the most powerful.

Your Pain Is Controlling Your Brain

You will never get the resolution you want from this world. But the One Within You can heal you in an instant.

Insecure or traumatized people—those with unresolved victimhood or inequality issues—have a difficult time discerning power from arrogance or abuse. Often to their own detriment and the postponement of their own healing. Without power, nothing works. Including healing the self and transforming the world.

Power is beautiful, healing, and can be used in incredible ways to make a difference for millions. But the unhealed mind will always be threatened by this power and misjudge it as arrogance or narcissism, even when the power is yielded with purity.

Those throwing the labels narcissistic and arrogant around like candy on Halloween are generally stuck in their own negative arrogance and fear. The only way the victim generally knows how to express its broken perspective of the world is by appointing perpetrators or becoming self-destructive. Usually a combination of both.

"For those to whom this applies—and there are many—I wish you true and permanent healing through the attainment of the true view of benevolent Existence-Consciousness-Bliss."

~ Bentinho Massaro

The Law of One resolves all opposites, separation and paradox. In deep meditation, contemplate The One and firmly abide in that instinctive sense of Oneness with all of your attention. This shall heal all broken perspectives within you and make you truly whole and ridiculously powerful as well.

It is you who is arrogant by continuing to insist upon separation and inequality. Your pain is controlling your brain. For your own sake, consider that it is safe to let it go... You will never get the resolution that you want from this world. But The One Within You can heal you in an instant. I wish this for you.

Then, you will naturally join me in this powerful movement toward the freedom of all living souls who are still entranced by the Matrix of Weakness.

How To Quickly Learn From Others While Maintaining Your Own Course

Drink of their knowledge; not their beliefs.

My incarnation’s driving engine is to aid and assist in the upgrading of this civilization. As a means to this, I am always eager to learn helpful skills and integrate new dimensions of knowledge into my awareness.

Even though "vertically" I have penetrated into the Absolute—the Final State of Existence Beyond Everything—and need no further learning from anyone to sink into that truth; "horizontally"—for the body and mind on the relative plane of this Illusion—learning and disciplining my self never stops for as long as I choose to operate within this illusion.

And thus, I have found that learning specific relative knowledge aids in the efficiency of the execution of this mission.

The same applies to you, and this article intends to help you streamline your journey of learning while maintaining your unique spark of the Creator.


Be eager and humble - yet maintain your unique shape

In order to acquire expert knowledge in a wide variety of intellectual, spiritual and physical fields, rapidly and at a young age, I have learned one needs to be able to be able to be humble at all times.

I will often play the fool, the ignorant, or the child when in the presence of someone I recognize I can learn something from, even when the totality of their awareness is not beyond that of my own, just so that I pose no threat to the ego of those who have valuable knowledge to share; and thus they'll share more freely since they'll feel more confident and 'dominant' in that dynamic.

Empty your cup when in the presence of a teacher, but maintain the unique shape of your own cup.

But what I've found to be super important, is to never take over the cup of the teacher; only try out its contents and see what about it sticks to the unique shape and purpose of your cup. Don't turn into a whiskey glass if you've been born to be a tea cup. However, try out holding the whiskey in your cup and learn from that unique experience. Enhance yourself and your service.

Feel no obligation to take on everything that's expressed, either. Again, drink from their knowledge, not their beliefs, purpose or theme in life.

The same goes for when you're in my presence learning from me. Or even reading this article... Maintain the unique value of your own shape, but try on the contents of what I'm conveying here if it resonates as helpful.


Learn to be a good teacher and student simultaneously

Outwardly; know when to be the teacher, and when to be the student. And inwardly--behind the scenes--know yourself to always be both simultaneously, for one cannot learn without teaching or teach without learning.

But outwardly, assume the role that is most conducive in that scenario or context to benefitting your expansion. Often I have found that emptying my cup even when my cup sees more than the other person's cup overall, is most conducive to extracting new learning, connections and experience at a faster rate.

For example: In my own line of work I am on stage many days in a row, teaching very directly and without making any concessions on the high-octane knowledge that comes through... I do not take on other people's opinions, feedback or knowledge at that timing. Not usually anyhow. It's simply not the most powerful way to transmit spiritual ascension/expansion. I have found that the most powerful effect in the raising of the vibratory field of the consciousness of the audience in this field, occurs when the teachings are delivered outwardly as a one way street; from teacher to student, even though inwardly, the teacher, too, learns from the experience inevitably.

However, when I'm off stage, I am more often than not, in the role of the eternal student. I learn from everyone, rapidly. There is nothing you can tell me that I will not absorb and learn from in some way shape or form.

I soak up as much knowledge and experience as I can, even if I am personally already beyond needing that knowledge for my own freedom and well being.

I generally no longer learn from people when it comes to attaining greater happiness; I have learned that so sufficiently that I can do that better on my own than through anyone else's instructions or life experiences at this point. In fact; that's what I teach and why I can teach it to others; how to more directly attain happiness and realize inner freedom. 

However, learning laterally, relatively, horizontally... is a never ending game, because the physical and even the higher mind are limited vehicles that can only perceive so much at any given time. And as such, it needs to gather more experience in order to learn certain skills, dimensions of knowledge, etc.

In order to be the best I can be at upgrading this civilization, I recognize the usefulness of learning horizontally, and integrating as many different points of view as I possibly can on a relative level of my being as well.

Letting go of pride allows for faster learning

Learning rapidly from others while wanting these others to recognize/respect/acknowledge your own level of awareness or adeptness, rarely go well together. So to learn faster, one must continuously humble oneself and let the validation-seeking sense of self dissolve more and more.

Elders often find pride in their age, their accomplishments, and their knowledge. One cannot blame them for this; it seems to be the way of this world. They do not always appreciate that what they see is but a thin slice of the pie, for not all those who carry great knowledge are truly wise. In fact they rarely are. However, everybody contain a unique angle and helpful information/experience to soak up for the eager learner.

By playing the fool, the innocent child looking for knowledge, they will be able to feel on top of their game. Unchallenged, they generally give more of their knowledge.

And so I drink gratefully of their experience and knowledge—but not their beliefs.

This is important to understand: knowledge expands your window of possibilities and enhances your ability to execute your unique purpose. Beliefs, on the other hand, collapse the field of infinite possibilities into a particular solidified reality—and I wish to choose a reality of my own, according to my own intuition; not borrow and endure the catalyst that others have attracted to themselves for reasons entirely their own.

So, in a nutshell: learn to extract knowledge humbly, gratefully and thus quickly; but get out of their reality-view in time to not let the parameters set by their belief systems infiltrate and limit your own consciousness. And generally do some type of energetic release and cleansing when you've been in the presence of person that you've accepted as temporary teacher for a while.

Get back in your own groove frequently, especially after an intense period of you being the student absorbing new views and experiences from another. This often just means you need to take some space and time to yourself.

When we have space and time to ourselves, the natural self-cleansing and re-aligning mechanism built-in to our auric fields and our consciousness can do its job.

Allow the teacher to open up its gifts to you

Knowledge is born of experience, but rarely will people truly admit that their experience is a reflection of their beliefs; not necessarily a reflection of how reality is or has to be. Many elders that I've met and learned a lot from, assumed that the way it has been for them is the way it's going to be for me. Thank you for that projection, but no thank you.

You'd be hard-pressed to find an elder truly willing to fully admit that they attracted their experience for personal reasons, rather than because that's simply the way reality works. Everyone generally believes that they've learned from reality as it is, rather than from a version of it they have attracted by means of their own limiting points of view.

After all, if reality is not as they experienced it, what then is their personal investment in their knowledge worth? Nothing. This is threatening to many elders or experts in their field who carry a lot of helpful knowledge. The only exception you'll find to this is in those teachers who have truly been able to let their egoes become transparent, or in the super duper rare case (think 10-people-world-wide level of rare); non-existent.

And so, again, to the point of this article: Have them share as much of their inside knowledge as is possible, by respecting them, seeing their beauty and greatness, being of service to them in whatever way seems relevant and appropriate (or at least offer to when appropriate) and not challenging them unnecessarily or showing off with your own knowledge (detect the limiting desire in you to want to be recognized by them, and relax it/let it go). 

All the while try to maintain a 360 degree awareness of yourself to ensure you're not taking on the viewpoints that generated their challenges to begin with! 

Don't unnecessarily repeat their path; just imagine it and learn from what it has taught them, so you don't have to manifest it for yourself in order to learn from it--for you already learned from it through them!

How amazing. Be grateful. But don't stay there. Continue to expand and learn from others.


This is the balance of independence and perhaps necessary cockiness and humility that I've developed early on in my intense youthful seeking years, and it has served me and the fulfillment of my mission greatly, and so I recommend you learn from this article in the same way it suggests you learn from others.

Catch and release

If you understand the elder’s need to believe that reality is as they have come to see it, you will find their gates to knowledge remain wide-open. In this way, I move swiftly through many different realms of experiential expertise without getting stuck in someone else’s expectation-loop, belief-system, parallel reality or trajectory/timeline.

In this way I am attracting the best of the best in many useful fields, absorbing eagerly and humbly... only to distill my own wisdom and choose evermore freely, truthfully and compassionately in accordance with my own Higher Self’s vision and intuition.

Respect your elders and teachers, yet forgive their limitations and honor them by using their experience to create a better—a more enlightened—world for all. Rather than copy their beliefs, assimilate their experience to enhance your own purposeful direction instead. 

Don’t just look at the giants of our world—stand on their shoulders, as well. This is the truest way to honor their efforts and their Soul, whether or not their ego-minds are transparent enough to acknowledge this truth. It does not matter.

Be in relationship with the Creator in them (your teachers); do not let their own personalities and filters distract or impress you.

The only way to honor the truth in your teachers is to build upon what they have distilled, not to copy their beliefs—because along with their beliefs comes also their reality. And you were not born to experience what they have already experienced. You came into the physical focus to carve out an exciting new path. Use what works, discard what is not.


If you get stuck in subservience and mistake that for respect, devotion and honor, then you have failed to build upon their knowledge and you have failed to honor their breadth of experience and the challenge they agreed to endure to extract their unique knowledge. You have become stagnant and done-in by their beliefs, rather than becoming inventive, creative and authentic learners of their experience. 

In closing: Always keep seeking the Creator directly; never stop your search for the Infinite One at the feet of another human being. Exhaust your teachers, and move on to evermore directly knowing your union with the Infinite Creator. You are God. Know yourself.

With Love,

7-Day Epic Residential Retreat in The Netherlands,
with Bentinho Massaro

Begin Educating Those in Your Environment—Now

Oh humanity. How innocent you are in your zombie state. You were born into and grew up in a completely manipulated, pre-programmed and carefully controlled environment. You live like a free range chicken and are very embracing of it—you defend it with your life even—as if it is all you deserve. You've become identified with the system those with influence carefully designed for you.

You are now doing the work for them. Them being those with all the money, technology, and control. Those who are of the service to self kind. You have become their puppet, and my compassion and hope is with you.

I look forward to the day when those who have hope left for awakening in this lifetime gather together in unison, reject the system and embrace or create a completely new lifestyle and consciousness together. One that is unplugged from the human-battery system that is very similar to the one shown in the movie The Matrix.

Those of you already awake spiritually, sociologically and exo-politically... I ask you to step it up 10 notches, as humanity does not have much time left in its current environment and mode of being. The illusion of comfort within this life-energy depriving system is about to enter a series of earthquakes and eruptions that will shake the very foundations of the system many believe they depend on.

And when this happens, who will be there to catch them? In their chaos, who will show them an alternate path? In their destruction, who will show them they can heal themselves?

It has to be you. All of us. Those who are awake.

One hard fact to embrace is that most probably we will not be able to 'save' everyone. Those too entrenched in zombie modetoo dependent on their misplaced trust in a man-made system that barely sustains themwill simply not feel ready to process the new information, thoughts, emotions, traumas... and will not be able to accept and integrate a new way of being.

Some people are simply too embedded in their patterns to change this fast and this late on in their lifetime. And that’s OK. We need to accept this probability, even though many of these people may be our very own family and friends. They will reject the new reality and go mad, spend the rest of their lives in denial, burn a fuse, or simply not survive.

Then there are those who have the potential to awaken but they will be in need of assistance and guidance because the changes will happen so fast that they may not have the luxury of searching for answers at their own leisurely pace. They need guidance from those who have already integrated and distilled the wisdom of the East, of the natives/ancestors, of Mother Earth her/himself, of the ETs and/or directly from the Intelligent Infinity within. 

I ask you who are aware and who already possess distilled wisdom, to begin educating those in your environment now, so you are fully prepared to aid and assist with those who will need a recovery and awakening program once disclosure and the full impact of the shift in consciousness and planetary energy occurs.

The curtains are closing rapidly upon the remains of our 3rd density Earth, while 4th density is coming into bloom. The only way to thrive and continue the transition (soon) would be by living and being of a higher vibration and increasing the 'density' or 'brightness' of self-awareness.


Help wake up the world you have access to now, while keeping your vibration rooted in unconditional love and patience. Imagine and choose the highest reality you can visualize, and commit your entire being to being an example of that most beneficial-to-all reality.

The time to wait for others has expired. It is up to you, now.

Thank you for your service. Let us activate our hidden DNA for service to others, and unite the ourselves in the process.

In the Love and the Light of the One Infinite Creator,

Bentinho Massaro

Earth's Army of Love

The veiled human life—even one steeped in wisdom—is a display of endless shades of gray.

As your human body/mind complex swings from confusion to clarity, dullness to brightness, from gray clouds to colorful skies and back again—and again, and again... just remember: there is always one choice that remains as simple as black and white, my friends, and that is the choice to receive what and who comes your way with divine love and trust, or with resistance and despair.

I know it may seem inaccessible at times, but you have an infinite resource of powerful love, forgiveness and trust residing right there within your very own metaphysical heart.

May you see the Creator’s love in all things and in all beings—even in the most confused of species: the human beings. May your love radiate far and wide, and reach all people of Earth. They need the gift that you are.

Through your example—if offered—they will awaken within themselves the realization that they, too, have the power of love, and that they do not need to act in accordance with the status quo; they too can transcend normalcy and shine so bright it’ll shake the shadows.

Do not hesitate to stand out, and when you do, do so with surrender and love for all. May your example make them question their beliefs and assumptions—the prisons of their own mind—and realize their power to choose liberation and service to all.

Do not fear what will become of you; invest your every breath instead in seizing each moment as if it were your last opportunity to tell the people of this Earth that they are oh so deeply loved by their Creator, and that they no longer have to dance to the tunes of the shadows they have been programmed with. Let them know that they, too, can shine with rapturous joy, like a Sun.

Now get out there and scare your family and neighbors with ridiculous and inexplainable amounts of love. I’m counting on you, Suns of God.

The Keys to Gaia - Thank You, but Thank You No More

If you cannot change the world for everyone within 10 years with two billion dollars, you’re not worth having that many resources to your name.

What the super rich do with their money beats me. To the super rich out there, I have a proposal/challenge:

If someone gives me two billion dollars without any greed in their heart, I promise you I will alter this planet for the best. I will implement a series of changes so fundamentally altering of our society and our consciousness, that in 10 years time you would be able to see the effects of those measly two billion dollars across every continent. You will see true progress—socially, spiritually and materially/technologically.

Two billion dollars is all it takes to change the world. In fact, not even that. All it takes is one remarkably true person to change the course of history. Everything follows the power of will. It's always been like that. 

It is time for greed and incompetence to voluntarily quit being part of the .1%. Instead, it is time for those not concerned with their personal selves to lead this planet vibrationally and financially.

To the establishment I say this: out of all the 'governments' on all the planets I have visited, you are among the most wicked I’ve come across, and I will tell you that your reign here will soon come to an end. The air is ripe for those who come anew, and those who come again. The new age is here.

The time has come to hand over Earth’s precious resources and the means to guide these resources to the next generation of souls who are here with clearer hearts, purer intentions, and a greater innate maturity.

What signifies a great generation is the ease with which it can hand over its keys to the kingdom of Gaia to the next generation.

Let go of your keys. If you do not, I guarantee you we will break in and get them ourselves. For you have stopped listening to the heartbeat of this Earth a long time ago. You have forgotten your place. You no longer have our planet's or people's best interest in mind. 

We forgive you, but your right to falsely govern the people and resources of Earth has expired.

Thank you for your service, but no thank you any longer. Earth is out of time, and so is your broken, corrupted leadership.

"It’s OK to live an epic life. Just make sure it’s epic for the right reasons. Devote your whole body, mind, spirit... and even your self-care, rest and moments of indulgence, to the benefit of all. Open hearts, blow minds and reveal new realities. Don’t merely consume life; create life. Everything is possible." - Bm
