When I heard Serge speak, his words touched my heart, they resonated a truth I had always known, but had long ago turned away from, choosing instead to indulge in my life being out of my control, so I didn’t have to take responsibility for any of my choices, or the impact my choices had on myself or others. I would just wait it out till someone invented a pill to make it all better for me.
The annoying thing was, no matter how hard I tried to leave the truth I knew within myself behind, it never left me alone, it was always there whispering to me…
When I was 15 years old suffering from chronic headaches and cutting myself for relief, it was the voice from my heart saying “this isn’t you” or when I was 18 on acid and lying in a hallway “this isn’t you” or when I was 21 and drunk “this isn’t you” or when I was 23 screaming in a rage smashing a glass against the wall “this isn’t you” or when I was 26 stoned just to make it through the day and not have to feel “this isn’t you” … and so on (and on and on).
I’m 37 years old, the more I let myself be and live the truth I have always known, the more I confirm “this is me” and I am The One – just like everyOne else.
Thank you Serge, thank you Universal Medicine, thank you esoteric students, you inspire, you challenge, you rock!
