My partner Josephine began her engagement with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine quietly and simply some eighteen months before me. Previously we had been together in a long association with a paradigm that very specifically focused on man and woman and their relating.
To say I was initially sceptical about Serge’s written material and what he was saying would be an understatement. I couldn’t stand the books – ‘incomprehensible jargon’ – and Serge’s unshakeable certainty was quite inflammatory to me.
What enabled me to get through this was the burgeoning reflection of love that I was receiving just by being around Josephine and her gentle engagement with the work.
I began by attending some Esoteric Medicine evenings, having sessions with Kate Greenaway and then Caroline Raphael and when I had my first direct exchange with Serge Benhayon, my heart just ‘cracked’ and I sobbed in recognition of what – I now can say – real love feels like. Equal, unwavering, not wanting anything for itself.
If I had not come to this opening and self recognition, as we both have, we would not be together today, as nothing else had allowed us to begin to address the imprints and issues which were keeping us separate from ourselves and each other.

A beautiful truth expressed about love “Equal, unwavering, not wanting anything for itself.”. How amazing it would be to live this everyday and I know it’s possible, particularly because I have the reflection of someone who does – Serge Benhayon, and now also many of his students.
Is it not the greatest gift to meet a person who simply love unconditionally and with that opens up the possibility to love unconditionally as well?
Gorgeous to read of the impact Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon have had on your relationship with Josephine, ‘If I had not come to this opening and self recognition, as we both have, we would not be together today, as nothing else had allowed us to begin to address the imprints and issues which were keeping us separate from ourselves and each other.’
I can so relate to reacting and rejecting something for whatever the reason – because it is incomprehensible, or in many of my experiences through jealousy and comparison – yet, when we start to feel the truth in what we are seeing and allow ourselves to feel what we are feeling, we start to surrender. And as I write now, I can feel how the spirit likes to translate and swap ‘surrender’ which actually is a very beautiful thing, with ‘defeat’ in wanting to staunchly avoid this process and usually ends up in a struggle and angst.
Movements convey a true we can trust.
“Equal, unwavering, not wanting anything for itself.” A beautiful and very clear definition of what true love is. Thank you Alan.
To have a reflection in my life of what is possible inspires me no end… there is nothing in life that we are given that we cannot overcome as what is offered is simply the next step to master in our evolution.
