Life: A Reality Check

by James Nicholson BNat, Somerset, UK

Why is it that it seems to take something major to happen to us, or someone close to us, to say something to stop us, to get us to look at how we are living? Depression rates are at an all time high, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, etc. are all now a common issue, whereas they used to be an exception. Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine have stepped out from the crowd and said, “hang on, surely this is not right, let’s look at the way we are living and live a life that we want” – and call for us to be part of a society we want to be a part of.

I know the mess I was in when I first met Serge, just over nine years ago. Whilst I am by no means perfect (far from it), the commitment to life and humanity which I now have has brought a whole new purpose to living my life. I have extremely loving and supportive friends, and have grown and developed into a man. I used to hide, cover up or deny my faults and imperfections, as I saw them as bad things I should be ashamed of. Now, I look at them and accept them, and if they do not support me, I let them go… at least, eventually I do!

I have learnt to express how I truly feel, rather than saying what I think the other person wants me to say. I am learning to express without any need of an outcome. I am not struggling to get through life or looking for my next crazy moment – which used to be alcohol, drugs or gambling. Instead, I am happy and content being me… and mostly look forward to the day ahead.

I could go on, but let’s stop and say: All of this as a result of one man stepping out from the crowd and presenting about living lovingly… how awesome is that and how lucky am I…?! Thank you to Serge Benhayon and to Universal Medicine for the ongoing love, support and inspiration.

  1. I would hate to think where my life would be now if I hadn’t meet Serge Benhayon 12 years ago, meeting him has had a profound impact on my life and I am now living a life I once only every dreamed of. Shedding the layers of hurt and sadness I once lived with has been an empowering experience that has allowed me the space to truly heal and to begin to live more of the true me.

  2. I celebrate every day that Serge Benhayon stepped out into the world and began presenting that there is another way to live, that life doesn’t have to be the struggle that we have made it, and that it can be consistently joyful and simple, free of the complication we insist on creating. Taking “a reality check” every now and looking at our life with total honesty is so very worth it, we simply need to make the choice to do so.

    1. I am with you Ingrid, in celebrating Serge Benhayon for presenting to us all through the way he lives, the Way of The Livingness, the potential we all have to live in connection to our Soul, as such our truth together.

  3. This is much stronger in me now, but again recently I had another example of needing to go further, ‘I have learnt to express how I truly feel, rather than saying what I think the other person wants me to say.’ A forever student.

  4. “one man stepping out from the crowd and presenting about living lovingly” and he, Serge Benhayon, is inspiring many others to take the step to choose the responsibility of a way of living that is loving and in true brotherhood with all.

  5. Good point James it is not often we come across a person who is willing to step out from the crowd and question what is going on. Serge Benhayon is doing just that. He is calling for us all to awaken from our slumber and look at the mess we have made of a life lived in escape and comfort.

  6. It is amazing to realise and feel how living in connection to the love we are within is far more enriching and fulfilling that the chase of happiness, contentment or relief all of which only keeps us hooked into needing more of the falsity and shallowness that it offers. And although the chase is over the journey of unfoldment to embodying more of who we are, our Soul, our magnificence, is awe-inspiring to which there is no end.

  7. With things like they are how important is it that we live true. This is one story similar to many, that we are more then just the physical people we are and that there is more to life on an ongoing basis. We can sit and accept the ups and downs that become an existence or we can truly connect and bring things together in a way that you walk life in place of being knocked around by it. There are many things I still don’t fully understand about life but one things I always come back to, how I live brings to me how things are. In other words if I don’t like what is before me then I know a part of that is coming from how I am moving and so part of bringing understanding would be for me to make a change.

  8. I can feel your appreciation of everything that Serge Benhayon has shared which has enables us to vastly improve our lives but more importantly has enabled us to see how we all need to work together for us to evolve as a species. Making life all about self has never worked and never will.

  9. In our desire to be the person we are, to connect and communicate with others, to shine in our lives, there will be many forces against us asking us not to shine, not to be joyful, not to just be ourselves. The wisdom Serge Benhayon presents equips us with what we need to turn those forces on their head and be all we are.

  10. The big changes I have made with the support of Universal Medicine have also happened relatively gently, that’s pretty amazing considering the amount of changes I have made. The changes themselves are quite simple but the pain or hurt related to past events is what can bring forth resistance or a challenge, but the opportunity to let that go and live without it is well worth it. Essentially it’s about becoming more loving with myself and others, and who would not want that?

  11. Life is forever asking us to wake up and as we awaken from one dream, life asks us again to wake up from the next and from the next and from the next. And on it goes until we no longer have to be born to wake up and instead elect to be born again to awaken our brothers who are still asleep to who they truly are.

  12. When we ‘hide, cover up or deny’ our ‘faults and imperfections’ and think of them as something to be ‘ashamed of’ we totally miss the fact that they are signposts for us to correct and heal our errant ways.

  13. So true James, and we are 6 years on from what you have shared with everything about the health and vitality in society and it is still sliding. When you see how many are “stepping out from the crowd and presenting about living lovingly” this should be studied so True role models can become common-place.

  14. Serge Benhayon has stepped out of the crowd, he is willing to reflect to humanity that there is a different way to live, and that all of our choices have consequences in one way or another, and affect not only us but all of us.
