by Mariette Reineke, Holland
Dear David Millikan,
My name is Mariette, I am 40 years old and I live in Amsterdam (Holland). Although we have never met in person, I felt like writing you a letter. The idea came to me in the middle of the night, these hours when I should be sound asleep. What to do… we all have these nights now and then, don’t we?
I wasn’t there that particular Friday at Lennox Head Community Centre (12th October 2012 at the Esoteric Medicine presentation by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine) – unfortunately, I have to say, because I would have loved to be there and see Serge, his family and my fellow students (and I have never been to Australia, nor seen a real kangaroo in my life). But let’s say, for all sorts of practical reasons, I couldn’t make it. I mean, I am not some sort of lost blonde tall Dutch single female devotee wearing a red robe chanting my way through life that follows her Love Guru around the world. I actually have an amazing life to live (and my very own ‘McDreamy’ at home, just in case you wondered). Yeah, I know, I don’t have to tell you that I am not a devotee, you being a cult specialist and all. But I just felt like mentioning it, for the record.
Anyway, why am I writing you this letter in the middle of the night, you might want to know? Well, I will tell you. I am writing you this letter because all these amazing things have happened since “Davidgate”. I don’t believe in accidents or incidents, and I know nothing ever happens without a good reason: I mean, we are all here to learn, aren’t we? We are here to learn and to be love. I may be a Universal Medicine student by own choice, but foremost, I am a student of life. I am writing you this letter because I want to say thank you. I want to say thank you to you and all your fellow Australian journalists and reporters for giving me a very special present. A present that at first I did not recognise… I needed some time but then I got it. Life gives us presents the whole time, but you know how it goes with presents, you do have to open them. The present I am talking about now David, is that with all the unloving things that have happened in the media around Serge and Universal Medicine, I am being asked to claim myself and express my truth and my love more and more. Standing up, so people can see me. It’s very comfortable in the shadow, but I am being asked to stand in my light.
I don’t know if you are reading this blog (I sure hope you do, great learning experience if I may say so), but you have to admit, being a journalist and all, it is quite a piece of art, isn’t it? All these amazing blogs, all these wonderful stories and all these loving and honest words, and the best part is, I get them in my email box every single day (voluntarily and for free!). And guess what, all the writers are not even professional journalists, like you are. Quite amazing, isn’t it? Ok, I am an amateur blogger, I give you that, but I have, like most of my fellow Universal Medicine students, not studied to write such beautiful honest and loving blogs.
So what’s happening David Millikan? Something is happening, I can tell you that.
This is only possible when you are being asked to claim yourself more and stand for your truth. No, David, I didn’t say ‘for Serge’s truth’, or for ‘Universal Medicine’s truth’. Honestly David, there is more in life than Serge. The truth I am talking about is my own truth. I am talking about claiming who I really am, and sharing this with the world.
I am talking about expressing my truth, through writing and speaking and not holding back because I am afraid of the reactions of others. It’s quite a challenge, I nominate that, but boy oh boy, am I learning! And you David Millikan, of all people (being a Cult specialist and all) must know this as a fact, that speaking your truth doesn’t make you a very popular person, now does it? (I am no history expert but we all know what happened to Jesus.)
Something is shifting, big time, not only in Australia, but also all the way here in good old cheese and windmill Holland where it is getting pretty cold at the moment. Isn’t that amazing David, that even though I don’t live Down Under and I wasn’t physically present there that Friday, and we have never even met, I still get this profound effect? Honestly, what an amazing example of how energy works. Everything is energy David, you can’t deny.
So again, thank you for your present, I really appreciate it. And before I end this letter, I just want to give you some tiny small piece of advice. I know, you didn’t ask for it, but I just can’t help myself. Next time you decide to visit Serge Benhayon, his family and all the others that choose to be there during one of Universal Medicine’s presentations, try asking a question. You know, one of these open ones so people actually get an opportunity to say something. Really, it may sound crazy, but you’ll be amazed by the effect…
