Caesar, me, and Universal Medicine

by Alan Johnston, Pottsville

“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:21)

So I can say that I have done a fair bit of rendering to Caesar: creating a business and considerable employment; paying rates, multiple taxes and speeding fines; voting for the good, the bad and the indifferent in equal measure – with giving back to the community and the environment in there as well.

As to God, well there’s always been this sense of a love of God – that occasionally seemed to waver (but not really), and didn’t get rendered to that much at times, but which, when felt tenderly enough, was always there.

It is this inner connection – as precious as a distillation of childhood innocence and more – that sustains me. And in truth it is utterly untouched by Caesar, his legionaries… or his newspapers.

But what do you do when a selfless reflection of this love is venally denigrated by the media and its arrogant urges?

Firstly, this love I am speaking of is my deeply personal experience of Universal Medicine, its founder Serge Benhayon and its gifted practitioners and students.

Secondly, I will answer my own question with another.

How would you feel, denizens of the media, cult experts and associated paid flunkies, if something you held so dear, so dearest – was subjected to the kind of behaviour you have engaged in?

Take the sweetest sense you have of a young child you know, full of wonderment, shine and simple trust, with the love of the All in their eyes. Now write your stories, work your deceits, bathe in your self-justification until that sense is trampled, lost… and you need another coffee or a fag to feel alive. Got it?

I’m not going to hold my breath.

  1. “Take the sweetest sense you have of a young child you know, full of wonderment, shine and simple trust, with the love of the All in their eyes.” this is who we are in our essence in the simplicity of our beingness, ,this they are too, not knowing there innermost, they trample on others and on themselves. also.

  2. It’s easy to speak poorly of those we do not know or more the truth that we don’t understand. But more to that it’s an unwillingness to not know, an arrogance. They would not speak the same way of something that they hold dearly. But if we treat one person or group, anyone in such a way are we then not treating everyone with the same brush? We may think we aren’t but we in fact are.

  3. It is gorgeous that when what you hold so dear is venally denigrated, you speak up as you have against what baselessly attacks love, exposing itself to it’s lack of it.

  4. That’s a great question – how would the media moguls feel if they knew their lies and deceit would affect everything they held precious, such as their own children? We need to be so much more considerate of those around us and that we share this planet with everyday – we affect so many more people than we realise.

  5. Alan you have really highlighted the purity of Universal Medicine and of Serge Benhayon, and the jaded, corrupted world of the media and it’s penchant for sensationalist stories with an angle to suit their profit margins. No wonder the media wrote and presented such false stories about Universal Medicine – imagine having a reflection so pure in its truth to highlight the corruption and lack of integrity in the media?

  6. Alan, you call for all in the media and journalism to seek out and report the truth and not to engage in and circulate defamatory gossip that is motivated by jealousy.

  7. Thank you Alan a true journalist!
    An absolute truth on the array of what ignorance can bring. This type of writing is Igniting the power within instead of the lesser version of the abuse of expression and how chosen words are used to bully and keep people separated in knowing who they are.

  8. It is best we don’t hold our breath, but breath it in full and stand as one who knows the truth of the love of God, for it can never be known by another unless it is lived.

  9. “Take the sweetest sense you have of a young child you know, full of wonderment, shine and simple trust, with the love of the All in their eyes.” It is so easy to denigrate those we don’t have a connection with, the ‘unseen’, to have opinions and be able to justify vitriol. Easy, yet where is the responsibility? We have stepped away from personal accountability and stepped into justifying free speech not having any accountability. A concerning trend.

  10. If one is connected to feeling “the sweetest sense you have of a young child you know, full of wonderment, shine and simple trust, with the love of the All in their eyes” and value that one, could not write stories that are lies which hurt others.

  11. That our inner connection and quality which is ‘as precious as a distillation of childhood innocence and more’ can actually sustain us is an exquisite concept to consider and live our everyday according to. Thankyou for reminding me of this fact Alan.

  12. When we are present in our bodies and aligned with our Soul, there can only ever be love in our movements and expressions. If we are not expressing love, it is good to stop and look at exactly what energy we are aligned to if not the vibration of love.

  13. This article was written 4.5 years ago and at the time I was bewildered by the ferocity of the lies manufactured by a handful of cyber-bullies and circulated by the media. Yet since then in the face of ongoing and incessant malice directed at Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon by the cyber bullies and the lack of integrity of the journalists who print information they know is not verified, I have seen the power and steadiness of a dedication to Truth and Love.

    No animosity or fight, simply a consistency of living all that we are so that our brothers and sisters, even those perpetrating the malicious lies, have the chance of remembering the spark that ignites their heart also.

  14. Can or have we even heard this message, let alone answered these questions as I see this article was written back in 2012. I don’t see much has changed in this landscape other then a few tigers changing their spots.

  15. Only the one who is desensitized and thus lost connection with their innate innocence, delicateness and love for people can treat others without those qualities in the ignorance, arrogance and righteousness of feeling entitled to do so and/or even believing that they would do the ‘right’ thing or that it is absolutely okay because of whatever reason is used to explain it.

  16. What I feel in the last paragraph is a sense of grave self-disregard and disconnection that underlines the kind of behaviour we see in the media – otherwise how can it ever be possible for a human being to inflict such act on another? And of course they would need as much coffee and cigarettes to keep going.

  17. Great point, the treatment that some in the media have dished out, they would be outraged if this kind of treatment came at them. The more you speak truth the greater the outrage from those who don’t live truth.

  18. Your point is beautifully made Alan. The innocence of a child is so very pure and ‘tangible’ for us all. How can even contemplate the denigration of this glorious nature if we are in our ‘right minds’? Perhaps ‘our true hearts’ is more appropriate here.

  19. “Take the sweetest sense you have of a young child you know, full of wonderment, shine and simple trust, with the love of the All in their eyes.” To trample on that one must be deeply, deeply hurt.

  20. Eloquently expressed Alan and a great call to responsible behaviour by the media who would soon cry foul if the tables were turned.

  21. One does wonder at the wisdom of denegrating another and how there is no desire to look deeper at society and too, with responsibility, report on any activity that can bring humanity together.

  22. When we are living in protection and see someone who is not, then we can either be inspired or we can react and try and bring them down to where we are… this has played out for eons every time there is a community living life harmoniously and in truth.

  23. The kind of behaviour they have engaged in is the kind of behaviour they might receive at work with their bosses and coworkers getting away with truly awful behaviour and they may even behave equally abusive towards themselves. But perhaps their especial venom is reserved for those who – through their presence, the way they live – makes them aware of how they live.
