What an inspiring EDG (Esoteric Developers Group presentation by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine) on Saturday 15 December 2012 (at Lennox Head in NSW, Australia).
Serge yet again presented on the virtues of making sure you see your doctor if you are ill or have symptoms that need assistance, and/or going to the doctors for a check-up when you are well and healthy, and not just waiting until you are sick. It has been a revelation to me and has finally knocked out my idea that I can do it on my own: that I don’t need a doctor.
I have always been a person who does not like to go to the doctors. This is because for one, I would go there with the mindset that they wouldn’t really be able to help; and two, I always liked to think that I could sort things out on my own. To be honest however, when it came to the crunch, I would still expect them to give me all the answers. I have come to realise how misleading these ways of thinking are, and that these ways of thinking in the long-term could cause me great harm.
To see going for a check-up as a self-nurturing act, one that is me taking responsibility for my body, is for sure a beautiful way of looking at it. More to the point, it is a normal way of looking at this, as our bodies are and always will be our responsibility, so therefore the action of going to the doctors and getting help when needed is something that we very much need to embrace.
For example, if I go to the doctors with a chest infection, knowing what I now know from the EDG presentation, I can be open to the idea that I have been living in a certain way that has got me to this point, and be open to finding out what I have been choosing, so that I can learn from my experience and look after my body in a better way. I would therefore talk to the doctor by way of seeking support, and ask them to help me ease the pain and clear the infection, with the view to learning what I can also do to prevent this from happening again – this includes looking at my daily choices and the effect these have on my body.
What if we could work with our doctors, and do so in a way that makes us feel empowered – where we are willing to do our part, to live responsibly, to look at how we have been living that may have contributed to the illness – whilst gaining support and appropriate medication as required from the doctor? Could this not then be a healing and enjoyable experience for both Doctor and patient?
