The ways in which my life has been enriched through knowing Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, are far too numerous to here mention. In short, the absolute dedication of this man, and the vehicle that is Universal Medicine, continues to blow me away. Before meeting Serge, I had long sought wisdom and truth – only ever finding ‘pieces’ of it here and there. In honesty, I’d given up on there being what one might call “true truth”.
I ‘researched’ much, but there were always ‘holes’ – particularly in the people imparting the so-called wisdom, and how they lived their lives, yet also in underlying beliefs that denigrated and subjugated women, people of differing religion, and the rest. And then there was the ‘new age’ – ever taking us outside ourselves to ‘escape’, or even to attempt to arrogantly ‘dominate’ this ‘cruel world’. Could there actually be something with ‘no holes’, that answered ALL my questions, and that actually reflected back to me that I knew ‘it all’ deep within myself?
It took a long time to fully accept this, yet in my life now I can say a whole-hearted ‘YES’ to there being absolute truth in this world. It does live within me. And in and through Serge, it is continually and powerfully poured forth.
I readily admit that I am ‘learning’, i.e. to live this truth, and great love, in every aspect of my own life. And this is the beautiful point here – for without all that Serge brings I would not be at a place where I can now live (for the most part) joyfully so, and where I can also (as I’m ready..) joyfully meet and support those parts of myself where I’m not living ‘me in full’. This is not to seek a ‘perfection’, nor to ‘prove myself’ in an outward, ‘worldly’ sense, but rather to embrace a way of living where I can truly be all of who I am. This is indeed amazing, as previously I had been so given up on there being absolute truth and absolute love in this world, let alone that this could actually be lived, and simply so! Like many who ‘seek’ something deeper, something with more meaning in life, I had thought a life of true connection was only possible in some far-off monastery in Tibet, or such.
It is this ‘giving up’, and the great sadness in the world that Serge does not hold back in addressing. This, for sure, has challenged places within me, as it challenges many. And yet Serge has never, in any way, ‘told’ me to be a certain way – he’s only ever, in truth, asked me to feel for myself. And ‘feel’ I have – the places and things within I’d long resisted/didn’t feel I could ‘deal with’, and the ways I live/have lived that do not fully honour the precious being that I am, and am coming to know myself truly to be. Has Serge, or anyone in Universal Medicine, ever asked me to depend on them, to deify them, etc? Nope. Has any of this ‘inner and outer development’ ever been ‘pushed/forced’? Nope. It’s all been 100% my call.
In knowing that I can indeed honour myself, and have the courage to bring ‘who I am’ into all areas of my life, and to everyone I come in contact with, I am no longer powerless in the face of the great sadness of the world, i.e. the lack of connection, the lack of true unity and brotherhood in mankind. This isn’t to say that it has become ‘all easy’ – there is indeed much in the world that continues to sadden and at times shock me; at other times, I have my own little ‘hiccups’. However, in developing in the ways I bring true connection, love, truth and the ‘joy of play’ to my own life and living, including how I am with all others, I am now not only ‘ok’, but am able to take steps forward in this world as the precious being I am. At times I may even hear that another has been inspired or touched by this love I’m learning to be (which I know simply reflects their own). Without the work and inspiration of Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine, this true ‘living of life’ would simply not be possible for me. I would be hiding away, knowing the love of God, and yet ‘clinging’ to my threads of connection, still trying to ‘get through life’, and wishing for the monastery!
For ‘all this’ – and indeed what Serge pours forth is more than I could ever have imagined – this man asks for nothing in return. He simply smiles in the joy that another has ‘got it’ – that the simple and absolute truth in living life is about us being love; living it for ourselves (for it is who we are), and meeting all others in kind. I can think of no greater gift anyone could ever give to humanity than to be such an awesome ‘reminder’ – an inspiration, true healer, author, clinic director, teacher and friend to so very many – equally. All this and more Serge is – constantly bringing to us the truth, that humanity is at its core deeply and naturally loving, and that we are all, due to the fact we come from God, inherently great beings. He also brings us the fact that what is ‘not so’ is a result of our own complications, our own doing – and that it can all, in time, be undone.
There is nowhere else to ‘seek’. The love of God and Heaven can be a reality upon this earth. It’s up to us.
