Universal Medicine: A Man’s Perspective

by Paul Moses

I was once asked: “Was there a time when you felt warm and yummy with a presence of stillness and the absence of anxiousness, seemingly not a care in the world, where every moment seemed magical? It might have been sitting on the beach as a young boy with friends – a joy to feel how lovely that moment is.”

How far are we from that loveliness that we need to numb ourselves from the very day we have lived? Remember when a day was so full of magic that at the end of that day there was no need to stay up later, as the day had a feeling of being complete. There was no way you wanted to numb yourself of such an amazing day and you looked so forward to closing your eyes and waking in that magic again. There was no need for coffee or any other reason to get through the day – you just wanted to be in the day. Tiredness was not present; vitality was in its place. There was an honesty in the fact that all we honestly had to do was to live in the true sense of the word.

When presented with this, we fall back into dishonesty and use excuses such as: “We are older now and with age vitality goes”, or “we have responsibilities now – I am a father, a businessman, a husband”, or “I have money troubles”, or “my wife has left me”, and so on and on.

We don’t seem to face the truth that every day is made up of moments that we get to choose how we wish to live. When did we choose to not live in the magic we know is there? When did we choose to be something we are not, to achieve something at the expense of our beautiful yummy bodies, that what we do as a job is more important and at the expense of ours’ and others’ lives, that we allow our hurt to make choices for us which keep us in pain and hardness walling us off from truth?

The warm yummy feeling I know of is love – the understanding that nothing is more important than my life and the life of others is also love – and to make choices in and with love is amazing. With such choices comes a joy to be alive and the awareness we are love and in essence we are all in this life together. Imagine if we took that magic into everything we do and express in a day – what would the day hold and what would our relationship with ourself and each other be?

This is the unfolding awareness that has come to light through my relationship with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

  1. How lovely – “the warm yummy feeling I know of is love” – worth a second reading. Thank you Paul.

    1. I was loving the blog up until I read that sentence, but once I read that it, it became beyond sublime. Yes of course, that warm yummy feeling is love, and put like that it is so much easier to accept that we are all love. As Paul reminds us here, we have all felt that warm yummy feeling, even if it is not a regular thing for us any more. Thank you for showing us that love is something that we know and can all relate to Paul.

  2. A beautiful blog Paul, I love your question at the end, for us to take magic into everything we do and express in a day, would bring so much joy back to how we live our lives. A quality that is much needed in our world.

  3. Paul this is a really beautiful blog to read and a refreshing way to approach life and everything in it. Something that is part of the foundation I want to take with me in all I do. Thank you.

  4. Thank you Paul for your delightfully magic blog. I love the way you recounted that key question…it was like I was the child on the beach, each day complete in itself with only vitality for the next to come. And yet, I gave it all away to ‘fit in’ with society and married life, becoming very dishonest in justifying my choices with excuses. I thought I had turned it all around, until I too, met Serge Benhayon and attended my first Universal Medicine retreat…..for then I met me too and the outer way I was living did not match the inner me that knew such contentment and natural vitality. After 5 years of regularly attending healing workshops, presentations and having sessions with Esoteric Practitioners, ‘life’ is now ‘Life’ and has become magical again for me, each day a wondrous reflection of all the Love and tenderness there is in the world and in me.

  5. I remember reconnecting with that feeling when I gave up alcohol. It was quite clear to me at the time, as it is now, that when I was 10 years old I did not need it – so why now? This marker constantly reminds me of whether there is that innocence and joy, or if I have become affected by my day. And that there is always an opportunity to choose differently.

  6. Paul, what a powerful blog in that you simply ask why are we not living all that we know we are. A great reflection on the choices that we make daily and that there is always an opportunity to choose to live in the love and joy that is our right to live. Thank you for highlighting and reminding us that we can choose, in every moment, love.

  7. Thank you Paul, I love how you describe the yummy way of living a loving life. Living in this way has also become a reality for me since meeting Serge Benhayon, before that it was not my experience at all or something I could even imagine!

  8. Love it Paul, definitely something I will ponder today (and beyond)
    The first thought that came to mind was, ‘I can’t enjoy life in full as I am potty training our youngest child!’ Ha, I wonder how many other blocks to feeling the yumminess I can uncover & release today 😃

  9. Thank you Paul for an inspiringly beautiful blog. It is magic when we realise that life can be whatever we choose when we begin to choose with responsibility and self-love. We become so distracted with what the world can demand of us that we forget to re-connect to that innate wisdom that is there for us when we are ready. Life is as simple as we choose to make it.

  10. A great reminder to see the magic in our days and bring ourselves back to seeing life through loving eyes. Thankyou Paul.

  11. Thank you Paul for making me smile imagining what life would be like if we all took that magic into everything we do and for reminding me that it is for us to choose if we want to.

  12. Beautiful Paul. What a joy to read and what a gorgeous reminder of how we can feel each day if we make that choice.

  13. So beautifully expressed, Paul. We are all looking for that yummy stillness in our lives, but don’t always make the choice to connect to that. We make everything else in life more important than how we feel – how amazing would life be if we did everything from that yummy stillness first – we do have a choice.

  14. This is really beautiful!! Thanks Paul! The feeling of feeling a day complete, a body swimming in yumminess and love, very open and light is absolutely unique and at the same time so so natural.

  15. In response to your opening question Paul, I remember feeling that way as a child playing in my room but unfortunately the feeling was lost as I grew older. This blog is a beautiful reminder that we can all choose to reconnect to the yumminess of the love and tenderness we naturally are in all that we do everyday.

    1. I think most people can relate to that question when they were a kid, but how many regularly have it every day as an adult if at all? It is absolutely possible to have it everyday, and I often feel that way, perhaps not so consistently yet, but I generally love getting into bed early at the end of the day, and can’t wait for the next day to begin wether it be a work day or weekend…

  16. Before I came to Universal Medicine I would have sworn my life was totally amazing and that I had everything I could have ever wanted in one way or another. Yes there were a few things that I felt a bit uneasy about, but these were nothing compared to what I had accomplished. It wasn’t long before I realised it was all fake happiness, and just riding on one success to the next to try and feel good, or try and feel like my life was full. Now I have been inspired by Universal Medicine and given the tools to re-connect and feel the absolute exquisiteness of just being with myself, no matter what I have or have not achieved and no mater what is going on around me. Living from this place, to develop a full and vital life is more than anything you can ever achieve or succeed in.

    1. Thank you Paul and Danielle. The exquisiteness that can be lived every day is a reminder of how much integrity we can put into our every day choices to be with that innate love that is felt as our yumminess.

    2. Me too Danielle, I was searching for the elusive happiness, thinking I’d found it, but realised how it was very dependant on external circumstances. Like you, living from a place where I am not affected by what’s going on around me and if I am, having the tools to re-connect, so I can feel the gorgeousness of me and know how that is me, not the issue.

      1. The way of living inspired by Universal Medicine is so empowering because we know any time there is an issue or we feel overwhelmed it’s not because there is anything wrong with us, it’s because we’ve disconnected and let the outer world in. A problem very easily solved know we have the tools!

  17. ‘Remember when a day was so full of magic that at the end of that day there was no need to stay up later, as the day had a feeling of being complete’. There is so much truth in your words Paul. Thankyou for the timely reminder that the magic of life is all around us all day every day if we just choose to connect and appreciate it.

  18. Paul you brought back memories of my childhood. Of the fullness of each and every moment of whatever it was that I was doing be that playing in a stream, playing a game of marbles or walking in the woods. I am returning to that magic now. I am returning to my life being a series of magical moments all strung together and it is nothing short of glorious.

  19. Paul this is a beautiful blog you take me back to the simple wonder of childhood, and when you say, “The warm yummy feeling I know of is love – the understanding that nothing is more important than my life and the life of others is also love – and to make choices in and with love is amazing.” you give us an important key to regaining that wonder.
    Thank you so much.

  20. I really enjoyed the beautiful way in which you expressed here Paul, as it offers another way of being which is to live in the magic and joy of the day. To me that is choosing in each moment to be present with myself and not caught in my mind. It’s like taking the time to be with myself like I would if I was to see a butterfly or bird in nature, truly appreciating myself in each moment. That is magic!

  21. I really enjoyed reading this blog. It lays out the simplicity of choosing to be love or not. It is my responsibility to make the choices that are there to be made, each moment a new choice. I can appreciate who I am and make my choices from love. Thank you Paul.

  22. “With such choices comes a joy to be alive and the awareness we are love and in essence we are all in this life together. Imagine if we took that magic into everything we do and express in a day – what would the day hold and what would our relationship with ourself and each other be?” It would be totally amazing, Paul.
    Why don’t we do it?
    You know “Christmas Day”, “Mother’s Day”, “Independence Day” etc.
    How awesome would it be to have “Honesty Day”, “Tenderness Day”, “Love Day”,”Playful day”.
    And eventually make it normal-everyday.

    1. Dear Elenalight, what a gorgeous idea “Tenderness Day” and “Love Day” etc, and how beneficial it would be to dedicate time to explore and celebrate these things globally and make these qualities our everyday. After all, we would be simply celebrating the essence of who we all are which is our true foundation in life.

  23. I love the way you expressed here Paul, making a very clear point, we in fact do have a choice in every moment to live with the love and joy that we are…and every moment offers another an opportunity to connect to those qualities.

  24. Thanks Paul for a great blog. It has highlighted to me the importance of considering each choice I make throughout my day. Even though old patterns are often deeply ingrained it is ludicrous to keep making choices that harm the body. It’s time to create room for joy to be a daily part of life!

  25. I agree Joe it is beautiful to read what Paul has shared with us about the Power of Love and the Magic we can live and connect to everyday.

  26. A beautiful blog Paul, you make very tangible that a magical life is reachable for everybody if we just choose so. Excuses are just excuses to not choose, meaning that you will become a victim of life and things are happening to you.

  27. Life is a series of moments, and how we choose to live in each moment is always our choice – this is the gem from a lovely blog Paul. If we are not willing to take responsibility for all of life being a sum total of our choices, life will continue to ‘do us’. Re-connecting back to the simple magic that we new as a child is key, we never have to lose this, we just sometimes need reminding.

  28. Paul what you have shared is huge. For most there is a huge difference between when we were children and then how we are as adults (and this is for women too). This is expected as it’s believed that the life of an adult is generally speaking burdensome. What you are saying is that it doesn’t have to be this way and that it’s all based on the choices we make through our day. These choices are not the big life choices that we may think, but the apparently little tiny choices that are consistently there. Making them in a way that considers ourselves and all around us equally and with love changes everything.

  29. The magic you describe is something that should be the norm for everybody. I choose to work on returning to that magic to be lived every single day. That also means feeling and healing my hurts, because I don’t I will live a life that is just set up to manage my hurts while still living from those hurts. No magic whatsoever.

  30. Thank you, Paul. “Every day is made up of moments that we get to choose how we wish to live” – this is a great reminder that I have a responsibility and power to choose how I live, and it starts now.

  31. Great point Paul. Even though we get older and we have always been taught to be more responsible, in some ways being recognised as a legal adult seems to give us the arrogance to be more un-responsible because now we have a right as an adult to do what we wish.

  32. I first reconnected to the yummy feeling of love while sitting still with the Gentle Breath Meditation presented by Serge Benhayon and I knew that this love was what had been missing from my life.

  33. Your description of just being in the magic of the moment and going to bed complete, vital the next morning just by being in the moment again, reminded me of how my early childhood felt. Not a care in the world. But yes, as we interact more and more with an unloving world, ‘we allow our hurt to make choices for us which keep us in pain and hardness’. Once we realise it is only ever about choice and that there are much more loving choices to be made, our life can begin to change – but only if we choose.

    1. The marker of going to bed and how that feels – complete from a day lived in the magic and wonder of love, or a full on collapse from the strain of it all for example, gives a powerful insight into how we are living and can live.

  34. Thanks Paul, for reminding us of this place of vitality, joy and magic that we all had at one point in our lives. It seems we give up on ever feeling this again once we enter adulthood, but it is so worth it to look for this place again and claim it back into our lives.

  35. Bringing love back into ones life is worth gold and Universal Medicine teaches how this can be achieved in full and more…

  36. Paul you have spoken the truth, and it’s s truth we can all relate to. I do remember those days when everything centred around how great I felt, the purity of my essence expressing forth, and exploring the world with gusto. As adults we certainly do use excuses, “oh the freedom of being young”, yet we can still choose a magical and love filled life as an adult. Anything else is just a picture we’ve been sold. Thankyou for the inspiration of all you’ve shared.

  37. “We don’t seem to face the truth that every day is made up of moments that we get to choose how we wish to live.” This is a great sentence reminding us that it is our responsibility to be the love we are.

  38. Paul I went through a similar process looking at the way I was compared to the joyful me I had been, and they were poles apart, so with the support of an Esoteric Practitioner we unravelled the life that had taken over the person I clearly knew to be under the many layers. Its truly magic to feel me again and live with the responsibility of returning to my Love… moment by moment.

  39. It is a sad fact that we live so far from the loveliness and magic we once did… and yet somewhat empowering to know that is only just a choice to return to that by molding and embracing each moment of the day to be in the quality we want it to be.

  40. That is an awesome question that you start off with Paul. The slightly shocking realisation that I had upon reading it was that such moments have not only been rare but almost non existent. I can feel that there has always been an angst loitering in a corner somewhere whose goal was to make sure that I never quite surrendered to these moments. Until I met Serge Benhayon that is and was introduced to the gentle breath meditation. Such moments so rare as they were are now commonplace and everyday ones.

  41. I love that Paul “When did we choose to be something we are not, to achieve something at the expense of our beautiful yummy bodies” Good question and why do we not hold steadfastly to knowing that yumminess, that light playful feeling we had when we were younger? I for one and going to choose a dedication to that!

  42. “We don’t seem to face the truth that every day is made up of moments that we get to choose how we wish to live.” This is a beautiful reminder, that we do not have to fall and stay in the everyday undertow of life but that every moment counts where we have the opportunity to connect with ourselves and others.

  43. I love the simplicity of what you have written, it allows the reader to come back to themselves and see stress and troubles are not actually part of our essence but something we create. Something I have been very much doing for most of my life but am starting to do less and less with the teachings and support of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

  44. We learn that life leaves marks and that we then have to live with these marks and hurts and thus we are formed by life. But you bring us back to the purity that we are and that we can choose this in every moment.

  45. When we allow the magic and joy of love to guide our days it allows a wonderment and openness to occur so every step we take can literally be a new beginning.

  46. Reading this I could feel the vitality and wonder I lived as a child. It’s deeply moving to feel as even though I do not feel this in my daily life now, I can feel it is still within my body. Yes its a memory, but it lives in me therefore it is still there – just buried under layers of needing life to give me something back. I’m pasting the whole paragraph here so I can reread with ease, “Remember when a day was so full of magic that at the end of that day there was no need to stay up later, as the day had a feeling of being complete. There was no way you wanted to numb yourself of such an amazing day and you looked so forward to closing your eyes and waking in that magic again. There was no need for coffee or any other reason to get through the day – you just wanted to be in the day. Tiredness was not present; vitality was in its place. There was an honesty in the fact that all we honestly had to do was to live in the true sense of the word.”

  47. Reconnecting to love within my inner-heart is to rediscover the meaning of true love and to know that is in me, through me and all around me as it is with everyone else.

  48. It is beautiful to hear a man express in this way – thank you Paul your reflection is very much needed to support other men to not hold back from expressing in this tender and gentle way.

  49. Where every moment is magical, that would be awesome, ‘Imagine if we took that magic into everything we do and express in a day – what would the day hold and what would our relationship with ourself and each other be?’

  50. It is so true Paul, when we appreciate the magic of the opportunities and lessons we learn throughout our day we do actually want to settle early and prepare for our next day of magic – and the most beautiful thing is that we can do this at any age.

  51. It is thanks to Serge Benhayon that I was reintroduced to Love, Joy, Truth, Harmony and Stillness – all the qualities that I so painfully missed in the first half of this life. Now as I enter my 60th year these qualities become increasingly present in my everyday life and just keep expanding – so yes it is possible, wonderful beyond words and available to everyone.

    1. Actually Love, Joy, Truth, Harmony and Stillness are who we ALL are at Essence so why is this not the NORMAL everyday every-moment experience of everyone? When did we start to settle for all that is NOT that as being our normal?

  52. Thank you Paul, you have encapsulated the joy of living from our inner heart everyday, from the essence of the love we naturally are as children. It’s so beautiful realising that that natural wonder, joy, and magic is still available to be lived and experienced every day. For me personally receiving regular support from the Universal Medicine therapies such as Chakra-Puncture and Sacred Esoteric Healing means I am able more and more to live that love and joy again.

  53. What if our normal was that every day “was so full of magic that at the end of that day there was no need to stay up later, as the day had a feeling of being complete”? Alarm bells would go off when anything but this was lived. Yet so much of the world seems to live in reverse – most days are a struggle on some level, even if it is just with tiredness or getting through what is needed, and a full day of magic and stillness is considered a rarity.

  54. I loved reading and re reading this blog Paul. It reminds me of what is possible and also it reminds me to appreciated just how far I have come. Thank you. Life truly does present itself in moments as our body works well moving consiously from moment to moment.

  55. The truth is even as children we are not allowed to live this yumminess you are describing very long, if at all, anymore, as with all the focus on intelligence and having them learn as much and as early as possible we rob our children of this experience of just being themselves and thus rob ourselves of the reflection that there is a very natural and beautiful way to live our lives. So it is very much needed that we willingly and consciously bring these qualities back to our lives, consistently and lovingly so, and Universal Medicine offers the right tools to do so.

  56. “Imagine if we took that magic into everything we do and express in a day – what would the day hold and what would our relationship with ourself and each other be?” Paul what you have written is so apt and it can simply be taken into our every day life, however what we need to be is awareness of who we were and how we have changed to not accept the magic of the wonderful self within.

  57. Learning to live the truth of who we are and discarding all that we are not, could be simple but it is not easy, because of the investments we have made, that attachments to the familiar and the comfortable, the recognition, the identity we receive.. but at what cost. Why do we not now live the joy, lightness and easiness we had as a child when we knew our part in the all even if we could see the adults around us stumbling around in seeming oblivion to it.- and instead chose to join in the misery and darkness.

  58. When you read this, “We don’t seem to face the truth that every day is made up of moments that we get to choose how we wish to live” you in a way dismiss it and can’t believe or even entertain it’s truth. Yet here we read it in this article as a possibility for some, a dismiss for others and a reality for others as well. I know it’s a reality on some levels and on others it’s just a possibility. It’s not that the truth of what is being said is any different but more my application of where I see it fits. In other words this confirms the truth of the line as what ever I see in the world is currently ‘how I wish to live’. Life has changed dramatically and keeps changing most days. There is always a fresh approach needed to things, relationships and people. Only then can you choose something else, carry the world with you and all you will see is the same world. It takes dedication to bring more awareness to something and no matter what you choose you see you hand is always there, having a say.
