Will $5 buy a pack of cigarettes? I don’t think so, although never having been a smoker, I can’t say for sure. Will $5 buy a schooner of beer at the local pub? Maybe; I haven’t been in a pub for several years and never did buy beer. Will $5 buy a glass of wine? Back a few years ago when I did enjoy a glass of wine, yes, I could buy one for $5, if I chose the “house” wine. Will $5 buy a cup of coffee? Just. Will $5 buy a block of really yummy cheese? No, not anymore. Will $5 gain admittance to a concert, to a cinema, to a play? No.
Will $5 buy you an evening of information and entertainment in the company of good friends? YES, in the world that I live in, it does. On a Friday night, approximately eight times a year, I can attend a presentation by Serge Benhayon on Esoteric Medicine. The event is held in a public hall in Northern NSW, and is attended by anywhere from 150 to 300 people on average. Serge presents for approximately two hours on how to be self-loving as a precursor to being loving with all others. He shares what he has tried and found effective in improving his own life, his health, and his overall wellbeing. It is then up to each of us to decide if we want to follow his example, or at least experiment with these ideas.
Since trying for myself much of what is discussed, like eliminating alcohol, caffeine, dairy, and gluten, I can say that, at 61, I feel better than I have felt in all of my adult life. I have not taken a sick day at work in many years. I have an annual physical, complete with blood tests to check iron, B12, cholesterol levels etc. The last two years all my levels are within the normal range, after years of always having something too high or too low. I reckon my good health and joy in living my quiet little life are a direct result of my $5 investment in a Friday night Esoteric Medicine presentation where I’ve learned that how I live my life is the best medicine.
It’s very difficult to understand why anyone would object to people attending these lectures, or why the media would hound people making these choices. What is really going on here?
