I used to think that true evil was the heinous crimes like murder, rape, genocide, child abuse and modern day slavery. Don’t get me wrong, these crimes ARE evil and there is no place for them in our society. But I now see that evil comes in a much more hidden and insidious form: the form of keeping truth from mankind.
In recent months, Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon, his family and the many people who attend Universal Medicine events have experienced deception, lies and misrepresentation in and by the media. Universal Medicine has been called a ‘cult’, Serge Benhayon has been called a guru, and the people who attend the many presentations and courses, particularly the women, portrayed as mindless followers.
Why then, are there so many people who attend Universal Medicine events who:
- Have gone from abusing themselves with alcohol, drugs or food to taking much greater care with their health and that of their families and as a result, have much more fulfilling lives?
- Have lost weight without dieting, excessive exercise or any other strict regime?
- Look younger and feel more vital than they did five or ten years ago?
- Have more loving relationships with their family and friends?
And why is it that so many feel great about being out in the world regardless of whether they are a supermarket assistant or a doctor, a tradesman or a corporate professional, a nurse or teacher, a waiter/waitress or lawyer? They all simply enjoy the connection they have with their patients, students, colleagues and customers, and the difference they can see that it makes within these environments.
I am one of these people. I have been attending Universal Medicine presentations and courses for over five years, and the changes I have made in my life during this time have been my choice. Not Serge Benhayon’s or a Universal Medicine practitioner’s, but mine.
It may appear to some that we are following some strange dietary regime or practice. But really, what is so strange about not eating gluten when it makes me feel bloated and tired? What is so strange about not drinking alcohol because I’ve had enough of the see-saw effects of needing it to take the edge of life, and then feeling fuzzy headed and drained the next day? What is so strange about going to bed by 9pm and getting up early so I feel refreshed and ready to start a new day with more energy than when I go to bed later? I call it taking care of myself and being responsible for my health and wellbeing.
And is it so strange to feel that there is more to life than just the physical body when science can prove that everything is in fact made of energy? And is it so strange to talk of reincarnation, when there are many cultures and religions that have this at the core of their beliefs?
I and many others have a story to tell, but because it isn’t juicy, tantalising, sensational or full of drama, the media so far doesn’t seem interested. It won’t sell newspapers or increase TV ratings. And to some, it probably sounds quite boring. But boring it is not. Healthy isn’t boring. Vital isn’t boring. Being more nurturing and caring with myself isn’t boring. Being more caring and loving with others isn’t boring.
Open your eyes and take a look out there, the world is in a right mess – there are wars now not only between countries but in families, schools, communities and on the internet. And the biggest wars are within people’s bodies, with the rates of illness rising each year despite the great efforts of our medical systems.
So could this be true evil – not letting our stories be told? Stories of inspiration and change, and the truth of how life can be for anyone willing to be honest about what is truly going on.
And is true evil painting Universal Medicine as a cult that brainwashes its ‘followers’ and asks them to leave their families?
I say yes to both of the above, with reason: my life was full of relationship, work and family dramas, my body was exhausted, I was shut down to what was happening out in the world because I didn’t want to feel how awful it was, and I used any number of numbing substances and hobbies to keep me from feeling just how awful I felt most of the time… until I started to take an honest look at how I was living, and make some simple and practical changes.
I have a deep appreciation for the work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, and say thank you from deep within my heart to Serge for the inspiration he has been and continues to be, despite what is thrown at him. Thank you, Serge.
