My first experience with Universal Medicine was in February 2007 when my partner (now wife) attended a presentation. I was intrigued and asked her many questions, until she suggested that I come along and find out for myself.
Thank goodness I was open-minded enough to agree – and now, at the age of 63, I am far wiser about myself, life, people and what makes our world tick.
To present all that I have learnt from Serge Benhayon would fill volumes, however perhaps an overview will suffice. I call myself a ‘student’ of the work presented by Serge Benhayon because after five and a half years I am still learning much about myself and how to deal with the challenges that life throws up. As a result, my life has become richer and I feel as if I’m continually developing. It’s awesome!
So here’s a quick peek at some of what I have learnt so far:
- A deeper understanding about how my body functions
- How to discern energy and feel what is right for me
- How to exercise without damaging my body
- How different foods and drinks affect my body, and how to determine what is appropriate for myself
- The causes behind the many problems in the world
- Why illness, disease and violence are increasing
- Why teenagers are finding it difficult to cope and resort to more extreme behaviours
- Why anxiety is on the rise
- How to live a life of beauty and calm even if there is chaos around me
- How to not allow others’ emotions to affect me
- What compassion is really about
- What reincarnation is and why it makes sense
- Why I lost my childhood innocence
- What love really means
- Why people are still empty even when they appear to have it all
- How to reclaim my life
- The benefits of self-responsibility
- What my purpose really is
- To be less judgmental… and how liberating that is
- How to get out of my head and into my heart (a work in progress)
- How I can really make a difference in this world
- How my energy affects others around me
- The most suitable hours for me to sleep to give me more energy in my day
- How to open my eyes to see the magic of life all around
- How to see the loving essence of people, irrespective of what they have done or who they are
- Why we are all equal
- How to be healthier – physically, emotionally and soulfully
- To enjoy simplicity rather than look for distractions
- That self-love is the path to true love
- How life is a series of moments and the benefits that has brought to my life
- How to have a more loving relationship with my wife
- How gentle breath can dissipate stress and anxiety
- How to find stillness, and the absolute joy of living with stillness in my daily life
- How the teachings of Universal Medicine are simply an experiential study about ourselves
- To choose love as a way of life – rather than another alternative
- To value myself more
- That I have a choice in each and every aspect of the way I live my life
- To live and let live
- To open my heart to humanity
Developing my awareness in life has been a gradual process and it’s certainly not a quick fix. I can’t help wondering why we don’t learn this at school.
I remember a time when I was very young when I felt totally safe and absolutely free; life was so open and cruisey. That changed as I got older; but now, as a result of the presentations from Serge Benhayon and the choices I am making, I am returning to that freedom – and it feels great.
I’ll continue to be a student of Universal Medicine – after all, why wouldn’t I?
