Right now, media misrepresentation is a hot topic in the press. Although examining the questionable standards of reporting evidenced by Courier Mail journalists Josh Robertson and Liam Walsh in their article of 8 September, 2012, this post from Michael Goodhart in the USA offers an interesting and timely perspective. What might have motivated these journalists to describe Universal Medicine – an organisation thousands have experienced as highly caring and people-focussed – in such a negative way?
My first impulse after reading the article ‘New age ‘medicine’ of Serge Benhayon leaves trail of broken families’was one of disbelief because of the sheer level of gross misrepresentation and almost flamboyant sensationalism regarding the teachings of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. My experience with Serge and UniMed has certainly not been anything like what was proposed in the article, but one of total commitment to personal responsibility and allowing one to make their own choices, hopefully with as much love as possible.
Neither of the so-called journalists writing this piece actually took the time to research what really goes on at a UniMed workshop, and/or publish what certain interviewees had told them regarding the level of integrity that Serge and the many UniMed practitioners have held consistently for over 10 years.
I feel that your paper has a wonderful opportunity now to go back to the drawing board on this one, and to look into how many people’s lives have changed and evolved in positive ways after their involvement with Universal Medicine.
It almost seems that the ridiculousness of this article about Serge (and the obscene references to women potentially not allowing men to touch them anytime they want to) was in a strange way a cry for help or understanding of what Serge has truly provided for humanity as a whole; which is to understand the energetic cause of illness and disease, and the choice to live a life with love, joy, harmony and truth – if we are only willing to get honest with where we’re at, and how we got here.
Unfortunately, this article’s interests do not seem to be coming from that willingness, but have proven to further the spread of disharmony in exchange for what seems to be the drive for profit through fabrication and manipulation of the facts.
It’s never too late to change though, and no time better than now.
