An Unparalleled Commitment to Truth

When I first attended a lecture given by Serge Benhayon in London 7 years ago, I sat there as a University educated, self-confessed logical thinker, sensibly questioning and intelligent person, who had been pursuing a lifelong interest in the improvement of people’s well-being through education, employment opportunities, along with emotional and physical healing practices. I had worked for public and private enterprise, for government, companies and for myself. I subsequently reacted to the limitations in conventional medicine by establishing a 13 year career in Shiatsu and healing practices steeped in Asian philosophy, Buddhism, Yoga and meditation, that encompassed training and practice in Australia, Japan and finally the UK.

Along the way I used my considerable drive and willpower on my body to explore a large number of the ‘alternative’ health practices on offer, so that by the time I sat at this lecture, I sat proudly with my toned personal trainer type body, fresh off my bicycle, feeling somewhat ‘holier than thou’ on my raw food diet and alienated stance against conventional medical practices and pharmaceuticals. I also sat there with more than a healthy scepticism, as I was acutely cautious of anyone masquerading as a teacher but who was in truth a hidden guru, for I had sat at the foot of such a one for 5 years in Japan and was not about to be fooled again.

So why was I interested in this lecture, given I clearly had a certain arrogance about what I thought I knew to be true? Well, there were still too many unexplained conditions in clients I treated and limitations in the healing modalities I practiced. I had reached a state of physical health and fitness that many admired but never satiated the need for betterment, in fact its pursuit seemed to feed it. But most of all, of all the presenters, teachers and false gurus I had listened to, followed, sat with and even taught under, I had yet to meet one that walked their talk; not one who truly lived ‘consistently’ what they presented and this eventually exposed the holes in their presentations and the limitations in their ‘teachings’.

It was not human perfection I was looking for but the integrity of truth in living. And for the next 7 years, as I diligently observed for my own peace of mind, this is all I ever witnessed in Serge Benhayon: an unwavering commitment to truth both in public and private life, in the clinic room and with his family, he lives the truth of what he presents, nothing more and nothing less. An area of Universal Medicine that bears the representation of this so masterfully is the Esoteric Practitioners Association’s (EPA)* Code of Ethics for all Universal Medicine accredited practitioners, a document that reflects the living integrity of its practitioners to a level of integrity none of my previous educational institutions, both conventional and alternative have ever come close to in their written codes, let alone their living commitment to uphold. It is testament to the integrity of Serge and Universal Medicine that such a code is not something enforced upon the general student body, it is something chosen by the few who choose to practice esoteric healing as a vocation and as a voluntary support guide for those in whom it inspires a call to take more responsibility for their actions in life generally.

It was only after attending Serge’s presentations that I for the first time began to even consider that the rare recreational drugs I took when nightclubbing, the occasional alcohol, or emotional disagreement with my partner may have an impact on my clinical work and beyond. That an unresolved issue that I carried the thoughts of outside the clinic room door, did not disappear once I entered the clinic room and closed the door behind me, no matter how white and neatly pressed my uniform was, nor how professional the setting and congenial my smile.

I have some understanding for those that react and sometimes bolt and lash back at Serge or Universal Medicine, because it can be hard to face the realisations that some of the things we do that we believe are harmless or even socially encouraged as good for us, may in fact be hurting us. I struggled too, I kicked backed too and I bolted too. But I returned, of my own volition, not to ‘join’ a club, a clique, a cult, but to face the truth and deal with that which I had buried, that which I could feel stood in the way of me living something that felt extra-ordinary when compared to what was on offer around me. It is a life of love and joy that arises from the commitment to living in truth, that I have now come to make my ‘normal’.

It is ironic, given the unsubstantiated accusations towards Serge Benhayon and the certified practitioners of Universal Medicine as being anti-conventional medicine, that I stand as a practitioner of Esoteric Healing modalities today, after 7 years of association with Universal Medicine, with a deeper appreciation of what conventional medicine today can offer. Today, numerous clients arrive at the clinic disillusioned, scared and reacting at times to the disease arising in their body and I encourage them to overcome their often vehement rejection of medical care and see it as a necessary part of their healing, an important step in their taking responsibility for their healing choices, given the stage of the condition.

We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us. For a society that is only just accepting as normal the legislation on non-smoking in public places, it is not surprising there is a backlash against taking responsibility for many more of our tangible and not so tangible choices in support of an honouring of ourselves and our fellow human race. Whether humanity as a whole is ready for this is not the point, some are and Universal Medicine represents the heeding of support for the call from those that are and never imposes on those that call not.

  1. Sara when you say here ‘ I had reached a state of physical health and fitness that many admired but never satiated the need for betterment, in fact its pursuit seemed to feed it.’ – this stops me in my tracks as it is a very familiar mentality. We can absolutely strive and almost become addicted to the perfect, when in fact it is borne from societies standards of perfection. In pondering perfection, the reality is that it is something we can never ever achieve. And thank goodness for that, as my understanding, since being inspired by Universal Medicine, is that if we were all to reach perfection, then we would have no reason whatsoever to question life as we know it. We would not evolve any further than a level of perfect and therefore never come to the realisation that perhaps we were never meant to be here in the first place, and that we are part of a universe that is far bigger than just the physical.

  2. Thank you for sharing your journey Sara. There is much for us all to learn from what you express, and I admire that you made your own mind up about the truth of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon when you clearly had studied many forms of healing and experienced a great variety of situations that left you unfulfilled. Even though you say you “bolted” too , as others had ,but you followed your innermost and returned to the truth of The Way of The Livingness.

  3. Thank you Sara, brilliantly said. Choice is always ours to make – lovingly or not, to feel and have on offer the extraordinary support that Universal Medicine embodies is nothing short of heaven sent.

  4. The striving actually holds us back from doing more, the stress and tension in the body while living this way is actually harming us. When we are not striving for perfection and let go, I find the perfection as such appears all around.

  5. Thank you Sara, for sharing how even with all the knowledge you had previous to attending Universal Medicine presentations, you knew that there was more. Perhaps you came with an edge of arrogance, but clearly you were open to learning more about who you were and were prepared to unzip the ‘read’ knowledge suit, and expose yourself for who you truly are, offering everyone around you a reflection that they too do not need to hide behind a suit of armour and equally have so much to offer.

  6. Universal Medicine has so much integrity in all its work.
    I’ve read the code of ethics for the EPA and can I say it is indeed upheld. I recently attended an esoteric massage course and the amount of care to cover and honour a woman’s body appears to me to be unparalleled. An example was creating a towel tent for people to turn over in privacy and dignity. Some may call it unnecessary. However this only highlights the high integrity in all work with which Universal Medicine is involved. Providing a new standard in providing complementary medicine.

  7. I too am a practitioner and was a practitioner long before I met anyone who did the therapies from Universal Medicine. I loved giving massages and worked whenever I could, only stopping for a short while to have a baby! I was exhausted, driven and not walking my talk at all. The love and deep care that I have connected to through developing myself as a practitioner of Universal Medicine Therapies is inspiring for practitioners everywhere. To understand there is a responsibility for how we are as practitioners and that how we live does not stop at the door as you say is, if we choose to take full responsibility for ourselves as practitioners, a game changer. There is no way to be a practitioner without developing a relationship with self care and self love. That may mean not working as a practitioner for a bit while you nurture yourself back to full vitality as I did, but I am a much more responsible practitioner as a result. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  8. It is the realisation that no matter what we have striven for, what we have achieved, what we have earned, what crazy aventures we have just been on, none of it really makes sense or brings true contentment, rather a temporary satiation, before the next yearning comes. Once we realise that the yearning will never be fulfilled with anything this world has to offer, we can stop expending all our energy on these distractions. All it takes is to start to understand we have the true joy and contentment waiting inside for us to connect to – seemingly difficult at first as we have to go back through layers of falsness that we loaded upon ourselves.. but once connected to, taking the journey back is worth more than anything in this world.

    1. I agree Annie, All that the world externally offers is so temporary in its delivery of momentary happiness that leaves one often seeking again and again. Unaware of the emptiness that is calling us to look within, I myself have reached externally for numerous ways to dull the pain and discomfort of not loving myself and feeling the connection from within.
      Choosing to embrace the healing within that has been inspired and supported by Serge Benhayon and Universal medicine has allowed me to “go back through the layers of falseness that I loaded upon myself” and begin once again to feel the connection with who I am.
      I continue to feel the deep support and appreciation Universal Medicine healing modalities offer me on this journey home.

    2. I agree Annie, there’s nothing in the external world that compares to the beauty and joy of what lies within each of us and as long as we seek to find fulfilment from the outside that yearning will never cease.

  9. Truth does not need belief in it to be, it simply is and cannot not be felt. Sure it can be denied, ignored, or suppressed, yet resides just the same. To be shown unparalleled commitment to living in honour of Truth, as we have in Serge Benhayon, is an answer to the call that could not not be asked. I thank God it was.

  10. Sara beautifully expressed, I have had first hand experience of how Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon are pro conventional medicine and how we have a choice to take responsibility for our own health and care. Serge’s commitment to love has never wavered and he is equal with everyone, his truth and love are deeply inspiring, as yours is too.

  11. It all comes down to our choices moment to moment. That I can listen to Serge Benhayon and the amazing wisdom he brings is one of those choices, challenging as that can be. We live in a community that holds the freedom to make choices as something of value. We also respect the choices of others and their freedom to choose.

  12. Sara, l feel in your words how you mastered the arrogance of the spirit in your journey to self discovery and how at first you were wrapped up in yourself but were unravelled to be reborn so to speak to the true you, that was there all along. You just needed the right conditions to take seed and grow in this new way of life that is so much more, for yourself and everyone else. lt’s a humbling yet necessary journey we all must finally take if we are to find true joy and service to humanity.

  13. Serge Benhayon has never imposed any way of living on me but he has consistently inspired me to take responsibility for my own choices in the way I live, with others and with myself. He has inspired me to take a deep look at all the ideals and beliefs that I had absorbed and to free myself to feel what is truth.

  14. The Livingness of oneself encapsulates every moment, we are kidding ourselves if we think our Livingness can be of different qualities from one room to the next, or with one person to the next. I enjoyed reading your article very much Sara, thank you.

  15. Could the greatest medicine of all be to empower people by helping us to understand that we are not victims of illness and disease, that it does not randomly strike but is a result of the way we have been and are choosing to live and be with our bodies. It’s the ultimate responsibility and as you say Sara – Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine do not impose this on anyone but only those who make the call to being more aware.

  16. Truth is the new normal – bringing a life of love and joy that arises from the commitment to living in truth. Love it.

  17. You make the ways what Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine are presenting really simple. It is about living a truthful loving life. For that we have to take responsibility that everything we do, does matter and that it builds and is related to other people.

  18. A most profound statement saying it how it is. For those who are willing to look beneath the ugly rumours, there is a truly inspiring story to tell about Universal Medicine. But in order to see it, you need to be willing to honest – not with others – but with yourself.

  19. “We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us.” Yes, this is every day medicine whether we choose to take it or not. Every move we make either contributes to our well-being and everybody else’s or adds to the dis-ease and illness that we experience. It might be a big pill to swallow to accept this truth of responsibility but in the end it is not so hard as it might look as our bodies will thank us enormously and will guide us back to our natural rhythm they know and abide to.

  20. Sara,
    We can ignore if we like the truth Serge Benhayon presents, however ignoring it never takes away the truth, or the fact that many of us have never lived holding ourselves responsible for how our lives have been. Very real truths that through sharing articles such as this, those that are ready will come across, and just possibly, change their lives.

  21. The code of ethics from the Esoteric Practitioner Association (EPA) sets the standards with the highest level of integrity for all practitioners to simply live with a level of responsibility that takes everyone into consideration and not just the self.

  22. Very rarely are you asked to live by a way of conduct in your personal life in order to carry out your day job. Your life outside work is your life – yes? You can be a bank accountant by day and a thief by night. Who is to know? Yet that is not the central tenet of Universal Medicine, which says that all of your life affects all of your life. There is no aspect you can keep to yourself that does not affect the other. You cannot love your wife, and be aggressive at work etc. Thus why the EPA holds such stringent guidelines for its practitioners. If you are going to present a modality based on self care and love, how can you do so if you are not loving and taking care of yourself?

  23. Hi Sara, I love this blog it really says it all. I was particularly amused by your past of . . . ” . . feeling somewhat ‘holier than thou’ on my raw food diet and alienated stance against conventional medical practices and pharmaceuticals.”. . . as this was also me . I too have come a long way with this attitude as now I regularly visit my GP for checkups and anything that needs attention as well as having regular sessions with Esoteric modality Practitioners; all as a part of my ongoing self-care.

  24. Majority of humanity deep down feel that they are capable of living a life that holds so so much more than what we currently are or see around us. Yet there are not many people who are willing to do the work and take the responsibility to actually claim and live this. I love this line in the article “face the truth and deal with that which I had buried, that which I could feel stood in the way of me living something that felt extra-ordinary” and it reminds me of how committed and hard working anyone is who connects to and chooses to live the a Teachings of Universal Medicine and the Way of the Livingness.

  25. Beautiful piece of writing Sara. It feels that humanity does know what truth is. Only accepting and than start living it, can be quite a step to take. Just like you, Serge Benhayon is the first person I met that presents a teaching that feels true in total. At the same time he lives what he teaches. And he teaches and presents, never does he impose on somebody. That is indeed very very rare. It is up to us what we do with these truths. We all do know that it is truth, the only difference is the time each of us will take to accept it and start living it.

  26. Good to re-read this article again. What I clearly feel is your commitment to truth. It is solid and what the world needs. Serge Benhayon lives this, but it is very accessible for us as well. It is just a choice.

  27. Its interesting how we often think we are the ones to ‘have’ it, often feeling better then another. simple truth comes from our livingness- and in this we are all the same.

  28. “I had reached a state of physical health and fitness that many admired but never satiated the need for betterment, in fact its pursuit seemed to feed it.” I can completely relate to this, it feel like a never ending cycle of need, like a drug, it only gives a glimpse and that glimpse is merely a relief.

  29. This has absolutely been the key for me Sarah, “We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us.” As a result, the body I take to the doctor is ready for an honest conversation and some physical support. I don’t abdicate my healing to them and load them with pressure, I appreciate the support they offer me and take responsibility for my part in my healing process.

    1. The more we take responsibility for the way we live the more inspired other people will also be to take responsibility for their lives. Our whole notion of ‘well being’ and ‘good health’ has steadily declined. Now as long as I can get out of bed and get to work I am seemingly doing ok, even though I may be exhausted, feeling miserable and needed a couple of shots of coffee to get me out of bed!

      1. It’s true, health and wellbeing has lowered its bar but we can certainly show where the bar could be by being that marker, just as we have been given a reflection of that marker in our lives to the point of inspiring us to come back to it ourselves.

  30. Sara you too are a living reflection of truth,having known you for many years you too have been inspired by Serge and now share that truth too. Thank you for your commitment and amazing reflection.

  31. For me this says it all ‘Whether humanity as a whole is ready for this is not the point, some are and Universal Medicine represents the heeding of support for the call from those that are and never imposes on those that call not.’ Every single person has a responsibility of how we live and that how we live is in fact true medicine. Not just with what we eat and drink but how we care for ourselves, our choices, actions and thoughts have equally an affect on others as a direct affect on ourselves. For years I followed the ‘healthy’ path but nothing NOTHING I have found is more practicle, simple and true as what Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine present and live. There is no magic pill and nothing to reach for outside of ourselves, everything we need for the path of our return lays within.

  32. Not everyone is ready to see and feel the level of responsibility we all have towards ourselves and one another, which is why I love Universal Medicine’s approach, for it does not try to convince or persuade anyone to do anything, it presents its Living Ways, nothing more, nothing less… but in doing so it inspires so many.

  33. Sara, I had a similar experience with gurus and presenters, ‘I had yet to meet one that walked their talk; not one who truly lived ‘consistently’ what they presented’. I would listen to gurus or teachers talk about love and discipline and living in a certain way and yet I often felt in their bodies that they were not living what they were teaching – it was very obvious, I remember trying to justify this in my head and make excuses for them, but I was always left feeling like something was not true.

  34. “We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us.” A game-changer of a statement Sara, i thank-you for returning to face the truth and consistently standing by the immensity of everything you have observed & felt, indeed this is the missing link, a medicine that empowers each and everyone to a realise our truly magnificent potential.

  35. ‘…it is not surprising there is a backlash against taking responsibility for many more of our tangible and not so tangible choices in support of an honouring of ourselves and our fellow human race.’ True Sara, it is unfortunate, but not surprising that there is resistance to greater responsibility when it is presented.

  36. “So why was I interested in this lecture, given I clearly had a certain arrogance about what I thought I knew to be true?”
    This is a great question that I could ask myself too as I entered the workshops and courses offered by Serge Benhayon with that same attitude, thinking I had it made and my life was perfect… but for the emptiness I felt inside and the moments of feeling utterly alone whilst surrounded by friends and family that I could not always ignore and distract myself from, which showed me clearly that some aspect was missing from my life. It was only through Serge that I realized this aspect was ME, the connection and relationship with myself and God, my divine source.

  37. The truth always prevails and when we are ready to feel and accept what is true and to live with a greater degree of self responsibility, then the changes in our lives and in those around us are magnificent. Thank you Sara for sharing your story which illustrates this beautifully.

  38. Universal Medicine presents us with the fact that true medicine is the way we live every moment and the quality of being we choose; this is so simple but as you have shared Sara, it can be confronting for many as it requires a level of responsibility and honesty many are not ready to go to and instead rely on comfort to manage hte turmoil in their lives.

  39. Re-reading this again after some years sits me up in my chair. I have said ‘I am inspired’ so many times, but this is an account by someone who is truly inspired by and has dedicated her life to the very same inspiration breathed forth by God – there is something very solid when the word ‘commitment’ is uttered by these people.

  40. Thank you Sara. I can relate to so much of what you have said here. With the support of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine my understanding of responsibility has changed a lot too and ideas that I have always held and believed in but never lived I am beginning to embrace and embody in my life. This changes everything. It takes an inner strength to do this and this is a strength we build daily as we more and more choose to do what we know is true.

  41. The code of ethics of the Esoteric Practitioner Association is testament to the integrity that Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon present and bring. I haven’t seen anything like it in this world. It calls one into full responsibility in every area of one’s life.

  42. This statement is an absolute confirmation of that which I have observed myself over the past few years as to the truth about Serge Benhayon. He readily admits he is not perfect but continues to be committed to serving humanity in the way he consistently lives his life across the board at home, in business and working life with people with an integrity and transparency that is beyond compare.
    “It was not human perfection I was looking for but the integrity of truth in living. And for the next 7 years, as I diligently observed for my own peace of mind, this is all I ever witnessed in Serge Benhayon: an unwavering commitment to truth both in public and private life, in the clinic room and with his family, he lives the truth of what he presents, nothing more and nothing less”.

  43. Over the past 8 years of attending presentations by Serge Benhayon, it has been both amazing and challenging. Amazing to feel the truth of his words resonating throughout my body and very challenging having to face my own attachment to ideals and beliefs that supported the irresponsibility in the way I was living with past hurts well buried and thus closing down on my expression. As I continue to work with the seemingly endless pit of ‘buried stuff’ there is a knowingness and re-connection to of an infinite joy, harmony, love, stillness that is the truth of who I am in essence.
    “But I returned, of my own volition, not to ‘join’ a club, a clique, a cult, but to face the truth and deal with that which I had buried, that which I could feel stood in the way of me living something that felt extra-ordinary when compared to what was on offer around me”.

  44. The power and authority in your words Sara are felt deeply in my body as a solidness, strength and joy. I love the clarity and wisdom you bring and deeply appreciate the glorious and true role model you are for both men and women around the globe. Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment consistently reflected in your living way. You are a great inspiration.

  45. I have had some similar experiences over the years with various presenters and a false guru. Serge Benhayon definitely walks his talk in full without anyone being made to feel lesser. He is the total antithesis of any sort of guru status, treating all with ease, grace and equal-ness.
    “But most of all, of all the presenters, teachers and false gurus I had listened to, followed, sat with and even taught under, I had yet to meet one that walked their talk; not one who truly lived ‘consistently’ what they presented and this eventually exposed the holes in their presentations and the limitations in their ‘teachings’.”

  46. “It was not human perfection I was looking for but the integrity of truth in living.”

    Such is the path of a true Student of Life, living a medicine that is truly Universal.

  47. This is what’s great with Serge and Universal Medicine – they present, no more no less and it’s up to the listener to make a choice. When I say “no more” it’s not actually fully true because they provide you with all the tools you will ever need to turn your life around but the initiating call has to come from you.

  48. There is nothing more challenging than being prepared to look at and address what we have chosen for ourselves that has harmed us and commit to making loving and responsible choices even when they go against the norm…. yet at the same time there is nothing more rewarding…. When that time is however, is different for everyone and a deeply personal journey that one must choose for themselves.

  49. Universal Medicine offers a life-style that is well described above as ‘the integrity of truth in living’. This is by far the most healthy, fulfilling and sound way of life I have come across. A life style that does not only support the individual to better health and well-being, but supports humanity as a whole in our life together on this planet.

  50. What you present here is what Universal Medicine is all about, living with integrity and love for ourself and humanity. It is a way that supports us to live in a harmonious way, and that we all have the responsibility to choose this as our way, or not.

  51. It is amazing how much we think we can get away with things, that it’s ok to do this or that because no one will see or it won’t affect anyone. But what if it does affect others? What if those little check out moments, or indulgent moments actually affect others? In my experience they do effect others and not just from the obvious. Every time I choose to check out or have something that is counter evolutionary I then offer that energy out to the world and humanity and give more weight to that choice rather than to choosing to evolve. And then with those I see afterwards, what state is my body left in? Am I then fully able to be with them or am I lesser, not fully on and present because of the say the sugar I ate is now affecting my body? Everything is everything and everything has consequences – all my life I have tried my best to avoid consequences but they do catch up with you and it is far better to deal with them at the time than try to suppress them as they only get bigger and more extreme – not as a form of punishment but rather as a form of love – a teaching for us to learn from our choices.

  52. So well said Sara, there is so much in what you have shared and stated here. There is so much that Serge Benhayon brings, his integrity, responsibility, his love for humanity is amazing, something to be inspired by and learn from his reflection.

  53. I loved reading and feeling this blog. It is clear to me that we all have a choice about how we live. We all have a choice about what we accept into our lives. I feel very blessed that I have Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon in my life. The truth that Serge presents has brought such joy into my life and an enormous clarity which has led to a greater understanding of everyone.

  54. This has been true for me as well – since coming to Universal Medicine I have ben embracing conventional medicine for the support and blessings it brings. Together with Esoteric Medicine, the two are unbeatable and the future of mankind, especially in view of the ever escalating illness and disease rates.

  55. Sara, in knowing you for nearly 10 years now it is an absolute joy to see how you continuously unfold to be the loving, open, tender, committed, playful and inspiration woman you are. Likewise with many many other people I know, including myself, from putting into practice what Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine live and present. That is ultimately how we live and is our medicine from choices to movements throughout the day and so much more. There never comes a point where we ‘know it all’ it is a constant learning and unfolding. I deeply appreciate Serge for teaching the truth with regards to energy in a world that is very lost … what he lives, reflects and teaches is very much needed. It is also an absolute joy to see Serge continually evolve, more than 10 years on and Serge Benhayon is still ‘an unwavering commitment to truth both in public and private life, in the clinic room and with his family, he lives the truth of what he presents, nothing more and nothing less.’

  56. I love reading your clear expression Sara. A wonderful testimony of the way Serge Benhayon presents and lives the truth of The Way of The Livingness and your own journey that is an inspiration too.

  57. To meet Serge Benhayon and to attend my first workshop presented by him was one of those moments when you know life will never be the same again, and that I was more than ready for. To find someone who was presenting me the answers to so many unanswered questions was the gold at the end of the rainbow I had been searching for, for so very long. Now 12 years on the list of things that I love and appreciate about Serge grows endlessly, but right at the top of the list, probably in equal first position with many other ‘loves” is that fact of his “unwavering commitment to truth both in public and private life”; this is a man who unequivocally and unreservedly, walks his talk in every moment, and with every step inspires so many.

  58. Fine piece of writing Sara Williams. Aspiring and inspiring. Universal Medicine is a way of living that produces what is felt and expressed exponentially through your words. You are a role model to all women evident by what you have experienced has not worked and the depth to which you live now.

  59. Serge is the master of One Life, everything being deserving of his full and true quality. Like you say Sara, his commitment to truth is in and around every facet of life. Through my own observations, Serge doesn’t have an on/off switch. This guy doesn’t fall part when he gets off stage and returns to real life or reality. What he presents on stage is reality, is his lived way, and that’s why I, as well as many, have found the tools so powerful.

  60. Such a great account of ‘before and after’ Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. I can relate to when you write ” I had yet to meet one that walked their talk”. The landscape is full of people who peddle this or that modality, technique or craft and once the stories come out of how they truly live behind the scenes and when, supposedly, nobody is looking, the dressed up and polished outer picture quickly disappears.

  61. Inspiring story Sara, I love this line ” It was not human perfection I was looking for but the integrity of truth in living.” This is what Serge Benhayon lives consistently and inspires others to do the same.

  62. ‘I had reached a state of physical health and fitness that many admired but never satiated the need for betterment, in fact its pursuit seemed to feed it.’ Such a valid point this is, there are so many things in life we pursue in the search of happiness and yet we never find it or only for a short peak moment to then needing to search again or finding other things to still the yearning deep within. And this is what the teachings of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine bring us, that turning towards ourself and deeply caring for and loving ourself ceases the yearning for more as what we are missing is ourselves and the love that we are and deserve. So it starts with how we are and thus how we are with ourselves that brings us the fullness in life we are craving and nothing in the world is an equal substitute to what we can give ourselves.

  63. In a world that is pandered to and where irresponsibility is encouraged as a normal (because someone makes a profit out of it, like alcohol or junk food), then hearing the truth that Serge consistently presents will see a lot of reaction because it’s so unusual. The world is very comfort seeking, and it’s very corrupt as a result, so Serge’s presence speaking the truth and allowing people to be uncomfortable in that is sorely needed globally.

  64. Thank you Sara, it shows us that: we are in our own authority in life when we make choices, and hence we can life by and with an integrity or lack of integrity that comes from our Soul. One of respect, adoration to what we know is truth. Therefore we can choose to stand in power or in the opposite which can be also called force. As the force clearly presents us a push, somewhere to or away from (our essence, our power).

  65. A commitment to truth does open up deeper levels of understanding, appreciation and so expression of who we are…”It is a life of love and joy that arises from the commitment to living in truth, that I have now come to make my ‘norm”. I can feel whenever I hang on to an old hurt for the sake of saving face or keeping things comfortable, I feel smaller, less expressive and curtailed to some degree, when I am honest, say how I feel, speak my truth I expand, open up and enjoy life so much more. Universal Medicine have been deeply inspiring in this area of self development.

  66. Dear Sara, I wanna thank you for what you have shared here with us of where you have gone through and what you have chosen now to life. Not just in conventional medicine only, but as a person, one of great inspiration and lived experience. To see and feel from what you have written the truth and that you have chosen that truth over all that was not that – even though that meant letting go of certain aspects that might have had your preference (attachments). Great path, great choices to become aware of and claim a deeper responsibility that lays within.

  67. It is absolutely has been a great big sigh of finally someone who walks what he talks and lives what he teaches when I met Serge Benhayon. It was only then that I realised how exhausting it is to live in a world where we are saying all kind of things but never stick to the truth of the words and struggling with consistency.

  68. Sara this I am sure is a familiar story for some of us, I can very much relate with what you share here. I had almost given up on finding truth, integrity and love in those who presented, yes they may portray ‘that’ for the world to see when on show, but never was it lived 24/7, to me this mattered a lot. Whereas with Serge Benhayon finally here was someone who had ‘an unwavering commitment to truth both in public and private life, in the clinic room and with his family, he lives the truth of what he presents, nothing more and nothing less.’

  69. Beautiful sharing Sara, no matter what title or paper we have so proudly gained, if we are not living the truth within our bodies we are missing the fundamental part of true healing that we can offer.

  70. I love that when truth is delivered it is felt in the body…… Here is my truth. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I resisted medical treatment for 6 weeks as I was in so much anger, confusion, uncertainty and fear. I booked a session with an esoteric practitioner and through that session I calmed down and got to see that in fact I needed medical treatment in order to survive… but the biggest healing came for me when I got honest with myself in how I had been living and took responsibility for all my unloving choices. After this not only did more choices and support became available it was so much easier to ‘make the different choices’.

  71. Having been a full-time practicing kinesiology therapist for 15 years and engaged with many other complimentary therapies prior to encountering Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine I completely confirm that the EPA Code of Ethics is without parallel in integrity.

  72. Wow what a story. Your words powerfully convey how discerning you have been in your search for the truth. Once the truth is found all the lies that came before it are exposed. Yes it’s not for everyone but the answer to every question you have ever had is available to you if you are willing to to be open and accept the truth you already know.

  73. Discovering someone who truly ‘walks their talk’, i.e. Serge Benhayon, was and is a huge blessing not only for myself but in fact for the whole of humanity. As through him he has set a foundation upon which to build trust and love in and for a purpose to life. This is not by relying or following him but his example is a marker to develop trust in oneself to discern truth and to walk one’s own talk.

  74. I love what you share here Sara, yes we all need to step up in responsibility, ‘We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us.’ Absolutely.

  75. What I too have witnessed in Serge over the many years I have known him, is that his dedication to living what he presents – to walking the talk, is unparalleled and this inspiration has been huge for me. I began to see the fact that there is only one life – there is no delineation between my home and work, my personal friends and professional relationships – everything is one and something I do in one area (seemingly disconnected from all other areas) is actually having an impact – as you say, my issues, dramas and choices up to the moment I walk into work or meet someone cannot be put down and picked back up – I carry them with me always and therefore my responsibility comes in what I choose to carry.

  76. Taking responsibility for our own health and accepting that all our choices both tangible and intangible accumulate is something we should all be aware of.

  77. As I read this I feel the huge appreciation for Universal Medicine and all those practitioners like you who have heeded the call for quite literally the call for universal medicine, inspiring those who also feel this call to also bring it forth in all aspects of our lives.

  78. I suppose the difference between all those teachers, false teachers (gurus), presenters and Serge Benhayon as a teacher/presenter is that there are those striving to become something or someone or Serge who is actually just being who we all are equally in truth. His consistent and unwavering integrity is most definitely a choice, but it’s also because he chooses to live the truth of who we all are – love. We might think that integrity involves will power but when we are connected to and living from love everything and everyone is held equally. There is no room for a lack of integrity when love is present. He is definitely the real deal, living and walking his talk. There is no on/off button or show, it’s just who he is and he is reflecting who we all are.

  79. Thank you Sara. This is a very profound blog that says it just how it is, straight down the line. Universal Medicine may not be everyone choice at the moment but it is for everyone without ever imposing as it is based on the Ageless Wisdom which is and has always been Universal.

  80. Very well said Sara, shared from such deep wisdom and now a living way that you choose to walk in – that served beyond image, to what you have learned for all those years to see and bring. The fact that Universal Medicine offers people to go beyond what their eyes can see, shows me the limitless of truth and so we know when there is limitlessness there is an universality beyond our humanity (dis)order.

  81. Now more then ever we always need to ‘do our homework’ when it comes to what is being said or written in the world. These days anyone can pretty much say anything without any recourse of action. Even as simply as having a conversation about someone you know really well, how readily do we make a judgement before we actually speak to the person about it? No matter how small it is the best course of action is always to understand what is being said to you on a deeper level and listen carefully so we don’t jump to conclusions. Remember the game ‘Chinese whispers’? What started off as one thing very quickly turned into something completely different and when you went back to the source you saw the whole picture of what had happened and usually laugh. This same game is being played out in real life, where one thing is said and another is interrupted and repeated.

  82. Great sharing Sara, that’s the thing we all face that in our constant searching there is always another mountain to climb so to speak, it is never enough and indeed it feeds itself, the search and we are left no wiser but going on to the next thing. And then there is Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine who present something very different, presented without imposition and left for you to discern and feel for yourself, and always with an invitation to know that it’s all in you, and to connect to that and allow it out, to address any hurts that get in the way; and to observe and see someone who absolutely lives this has been the rock and trust which has supported me to look at how I am, how I live and how I can live in a way that is honest, real and true.

  83. ‘It was not human perfection I was looking for but the integrity of truth in living.’ I had come to a similar place and realised that if `i were to open a Retreat Centre which was what I had intended back in the nineties i would want very high calibre professionals working there…..and as I looked around I did not see any near me that came close to my standards. Of course, at the time I did not consider my partaking of a glass of wine here and there and other actions that I would now deem as disregarding to be a problem although something didn’t feel right. It took me a while to understand the energetics at play and now I still at times go against what I know is true but this is happening less and I am able to have more true integrity myself, an integrity that is deeper than I had thought was possible to live before. Serge Benhayon and his family model a life lived that supersedes the integrity that I had experienced in anyone before and shows that it is possible to live with this unparalleled commitment to truth

  84. I love this far reaching definition of medicine – “We now have a medicine that extends a person’s responsibility beyond just taking medicine, beyond what food we eat and fluid we drink, to now consider the consequences of every choice we make and how this affects not just our mood, our physical health, or even our motivation for living, but that of everyone around us.” This is medicine, as it ought to be practiced.

  85. It is a truly wonderful thing to meet someone who has the integrity of a life lived with so much consistency and grace. this is life-changing in itself and there needs be nothing more for inspiration to take place, because that level of constancy, of grace and authority is available to us all, without exception.

  86. Thank you Sara, reading this again today what stood out was the example of banning smoking in public and the basic consideration of others rights to not inhale second hand smoke, to then consider the level of responsibility offered by Universal Medicine one can realise that it could stir up a lot for people, especially if the self has been the main focus. In regards to our responsibility to the all, Universal Medicine is miles ahead of what our current laws reflect. Truly though, caring for oneself as part of a greater community is a beautiful way to live. We should not hesitate to leave the selfish “self” behind, the self that enjoys individualism with disregard to the all, because it’s such a narrow and joyless existence compared to brotherhood.

  87. Saying yes to what Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon presents, is to say yes to the honesty and willingness to be responsible and to reconnect and live by the truth known within, and no one becomes a follower of anyone or anything outside themselves.
