I can’t help wondering why we don’t learn this at school

by Rod Harvey, Australia

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?

  1. It’s so easy to feel how empowered we all would be if we had access to what you have shared in your list, and learn to live them. Not sure how it would fit into the school curriculum these days as it would not come with a teacher’s manual and it is only through the livingness that it gets communicated, and there’s no grading, and competitiveness would be eradicated as we learn that we are all absolutely equal.

  2. Wow Rod, that is a pretty impressive list you have learned and shared with us. Very inspiring as all too often too many of us shy away from literally going to those places where we have hidden our old hurts and shining a light on all those things that shadow us. But you make is sound so doable and practical.

  3. I am a student of life and yes a student of The Way of The Livingness teachings shared by Serge Benhayon. Life is all about learning not being stagnant. Philosophy, science, religion all encompassed in wisdom and simplicity. It is Awesome to attend these events.

  4. Imagine all of the above points infused into our school systems and if they became part of our principles growing up – the world would be respectful, loving, equal, committed, understanding, always growing, very purposeful – and a very different place to what it is now. There is something enormously rich and fulfilling about an ever-devoloping way of life.

  5. Yes it is surprising why we don’t learn about the basic foundations to living a truly fulfilling life during our school days. All the points your shared Rod would change the face of the world for the better, if they were part of our schools curriculum.
