I watched your 5 minute slot on ‘Healing Community dubbed cult‘. I realised while watching it why the media gets such a bad name, and why many of us do not trust the media. This 5 minutes seemed to want to dig a certain angle for a story about Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, and with a ‘dog to a bone’ approach, even with what was presented, they manufactured a ‘bone’ – in this case the bone being ‘cult’. Equally what I felt was misrepresented was that it seemed to focus on women ‘followers’.
It is a shame that your news journalists did not choose to be open to the truth of what is really offered by Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine Practitioners. In time, there will be a journalistic team who will be open to the full truth and ready to then present that to humanity. This would offer humanity a great service. Illness and disease globally is sky rocketing on all counts. Society feels this, and knows there is something amiss. Give humanity a chance to see there is another way. This is all about practical simple truths, opening us to the fact that we as a humanity have not been taking care of ourselves even on the most simple day to day level. New technology or rockets to the moon will never support this, nor reduce the ‘sky rocketing’ illness and disease figures.
What will support humanity is more people like Serge Benhayon willing to offer simple practical truths.
In the UK you may know that we have had a number of investigations and now court cases into the scurrilous and unscrupulous ways the media and journalists have either misrepresented the truth, or in digging for dirt, have skewed what they find. This is all for sensationalism, to sell their newspapers or TV companies, and to compete with other journalists and so on. I can honestly say that for me, A Current Affair and their news/media team now join my ever increasing list of scurrilous and unscrupulous reporters.
I have known Serge Benhayon, his family, Universal Medicine and the practitioners in Australia for over 8 years. I have travelled over there for treatments and to attend workshops. I am 50 years old, work in two universities and a number of hospitals, where I offer leadership, management, and team building support, as well as implementing national government policy, and undertake research studies. I know too well that it is important to get the facts, and it is important to investigate when things need investigation, or when things don’t feel all that they seem to be. I am all for a fair investigation and a fair representation of the facts found, and sound fact finding. What I feel in the case of this program is that whilst the journalist did go to visit Universal Medicine, he went with a fixed agenda, and then funneled everything he found into his own funnel (a sensationalist funnel of ‘cult’).
Here I offer what I have discerned through my own experience in regards the real and true story of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine:
1. There is no cult. Each of us attend anything we feel to and when we feel to of our own volition, paying a fee (just as I do when I attend any of my professional development activities for my work). Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine Practitioners have never once told me what to do, or told me to be a certain way, or even tried to make me see things in a certain way. In fact whenever I have asked Serge Benhayon for a solution or guidance he has always said something along the lines of ‘you will know’ or ‘it is for you to choose, and for you to feel what your own solution is’. I have never been asked to give any money to Universal Medicine or any of my income either. I just pay for any workshops I attend, like anyone else in society who goes along to a workshop of any sort.
2. Both men and women attend: In UK and in Europe, Canada, USA and Australia I have met both men and women who attend the presentations and workshops. These people are from all walks of life: carpenters, photographers, managers, lawyers, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, catering assistants, shop assistants, internal decorators, mums, dads, students, as well as many children of all ages. They are of mixed ages, some single, some married, some widowed, some with children, some without – what you might call a balanced representation of any society.
3. Professional code of ethics: In my Phd I studied codes of professional practice and ethics. I have yet to find a code of professional conduct and ethics as thorough, and of such integrity as the EPA which is the code of professional conduct/ethics that the Universal Medicine/Serge Benhayon practice from. I have never in 8 years ever met a higher standard of personal and professional ethics anywhere. I am continuously amazed at the lack of ethics in other places where I work, e.g. some of the corporate board teams I work with. I have never had even the faintest sniff of a lack of ethical practice or mal practice with Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine Practitioners.
4. Simple tools for better health: I have used traditional medicine/pharmaceuticals for many years. When I met Serge Benhayon I’d had endometriosis for 30 years and was constantly exhausted with many other ailments and maladies. My physical body was not well, even with the medical and pharmaceutical support I had received. What Serge Benhayon presents are simple truths, and truths that we all know deep inside of our own physical bodies. He presents a simple reminder that our bodies hold the key to changing our own lives, for ourselves, and can be used as a guide. We know when we have over eaten, worked too hard etc, but we don’t pay attention or choose to take responsibility for this. What Serge Benhayon has presented for me is the simplicity of why my physical body felt so retched and why I always felt so tired. I simply did not take care of myself, and this self care and self-nurture is what I have been learning from the presentations and workshops. Simple practical tools and techniques that help me in my daily living to take better care of myself. And it works – I no longer have endometriosis, I no longer have painful periods (having had them for 30 years), my skin has cleared up, I no longer have asthma or sinusitis, and I no longer feel exhausted. In fact I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life – and my body feels great. All of these changes have been made by me – no one has ever told me to make changes. I have made them because I realised that I wasn’t taking personal responsibility for the way I felt. Now that I do that, I feel very self empowered, particularly as all of the changes in my body have been made by me.
