I don’t want to sound ‘Pollyanna-ish’, but for me there has been an unexpected and positive result of the unwarranted media attacks on Serge Benhayon, his family, Universal Medicine (UniMed) and the many esoteric practitioners involved with UniMed.
I have been reading the blog posts from people who tell the truth about Serge Benhayon and their experiences with Universal Medicine and am in awe of how these wonderful people have the courage to write so openly about their own lives, struggles, steps along the path, realisations, changes made, etc.
In some ways, reading and learning from this testimony has formed one of the most powerful experiences I have had with the Universal Medicine community over the past six years.
I even copied one post into my iPad notes and labeled it ‘To Read Every Day’! Because I felt so strongly that the writer had expressed a truth that resonated deeply for me too.
Over the years I have met local members of this community at various Universal Medicine events, but now I feel as if I know people from all over the world who I will probably never meet in person. But through their posts, they have trusted me by sharing their true selves.
As an unexpected result (of the media attention and the subsequent development of the student blogs) I now feel part of a huge caring community. So THANK you to all you beautiful bloggers!
