Serge Benhayon Helped Me Get Off The Merry-Go-Round

by Johanne Brown, Perth, Australia

I had always felt that there was more to life than what I was seeing – there just had to be. This ‘merry-go-round just can’t be it.

You live… work… retire… die… There had to be more than that, a purpose for being here, being a human being… this planet… the universe… The questions just got bigger and bigger and I didn’t know where to begin to start addressing them. All the while I would just get on with the day to day running of things; being mum to small children, working part time, wife, friend, etc.

I explored a few paths, read books and at times thought I had come to some understanding; but with time, these pursuits just fell short of something – yet I didn’t know exactly what that something was. I had a feeling that something else was yet to come along.

One day I was handed a leaflet about a Universal Medicine course. I remember, very carefully, studying the leaflet. To be honest, even some of the wording made me cautious, e.g. ‘Sacred’, ‘Truth,’ ‘Love’ – as these words are regularly thrown around, and we have all developed our own interpretations of their meaning.

However, stronger than this caution was the feeling to attend.

I remember, as vividly as if it were yesterday, at that first Universal Medicine course, the sense that I had ‘come home’. ‘I know this… but what is it I know?’, my brain was asking.

One can let the mind struggle with the terminology, concepts, the wanting to know precisely, to work it out, but nothing… nothing will ever override the feeling or sense of knowing that I felt. I could have denied it, doubted and rejected it, but that impression was palpable, a marker that could not be ignored, and I could not pretend it didn’t happen.

I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.

I was unconscious of the fact that this connection had really always been there, it was the connection to myself (love/soul) that was giving me the feeling that there was more to life than what I was seeing. What I innately knew on the inside was not being confirmed by the world we live in. Hence the disillusion of living ‘on the merry-go-round’ set in.

All the other books and the few courses I had attended had kept me in the search for something, but Universal Medicine just presented Me back to me. I had come home.

Imagine if you are making a cake: you have a mixing bowl and put all the ingredients into the bowl and mix. That’s what I was doing in life, mixing the ingredients but feeling that there was just one ingredient missing. Now I realise that the missing ingredient was my love in the mix.

Seven years later, I have attended many of Universal Medicine’s workshops. The understanding I have of myself, relationships and love continues to unfold: now life, with all of me in it, teaches me back.

Serge Benhayon never ever stands there and tells anyone what to do, eat or how to live. He presents and shares simple techniques, such as the Gentle Breath Meditation. You can take it or leave it, that’s the reality. It’s an insult to suggest that people who have been attending any Universal Medicine workshops are followers of some kind, because at the end of the day it is up to you.

  1. “It’s an insult to suggest that people who have been attending any Universal Medicine workshops are followers of some kind, because at the end of the day it is up to you.” And that is the beauty of the Ageless Wisdom, it brings you back to you, where no following of anything is required but the listening to our inner heart / wisdom.

  2. And having your cake and eating it too is when we all get the same place within that mix, this is the placement of brotherhood that is equal for all in true proportions therefore our own timing in the baking.

  3. Johanne this is so clear and powerful what you have shared about what Universal Medicine and Serge offer humanity – a return to the love they are within. And what a great line “I now understand that the sense or feeling that I had ‘come home’ was the connection that I had made to myself and my body, to the love that was inside me – a union between body and soul.” Beautifully expressed! Welcome home to yourself. ✨

  4. I cannot remember the countless times I have walked down the paths that offer
    ‘Sacred’, ‘Truth,’ ‘Love’ as you say Johanna these words are bandied around like sweets they are very tempting because we are all looking for the truth and true love, deep within us we know that something is not right something is missing … but how to find that missing bit?
    For me the missing bit was meeting Serge Benhayon; like thousands of people before me my questions have been finally answered and as I deepen my awareness to me and my surroundings more questions come up and the answers are provided and what’s more my body not my mind knows that what is presented holds the truth that I have been searching for. I have listened to my mind all of my life and I know now it has always led me astray I have made some very ill choices. Not any more, my mind has had it chance it has failed I will no longer listen to it. Since making that decision my life is slowly turning around and I feel so alive as my senses are not dulled but are tuning into the greater depth of life that is on offer to all of us.

  5. The best blessing that I have received in life came from Serge Benhayon who supported me to see how I had chosen a merry-go-round as my way of living. Once I became aware and could feel the craziness of this, I made the choice to jump off the merry-go-round. Now living my life as the true me with my feet flat on the ground is an ever deepening and joyful journey.

  6. Yes, I had the same feeling Johanne, I always felt there was something missing in my life and that ingredient was love, which makes life taste a whole lot sweeter without any cake in site!

  7. That is precisely the self-empowerment that is on offer through the presentations of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. Bringing awareness to the choices that we and only ourselves are making and why, allow us to discern as to whether we want to continue on the same trajectory or be honest with ourselves as to what is needed to change it. This can never come from another, for it is our relationship with our truth and love that only can guide us.

  8. “The understanding I have of myself, relationships and love continues to unfold: now life, with all of me in it, teaches me back.” This is the best way to go through life, fully with oneself and open to learn and understand.

  9. I agree with you Johanna when you say
    “It’s an insult to suggest that people who have been attending any Universal Medicine workshops are followers of some kind, because at the end of the day it is up to you.”
    I do wonder why it is that I’m called a follower but my friends who attend their local church are not followers?
    How can this be?

    1. Yes, very dear is beautifully said, coming home to oneself to then unfold with every step more the beauty and potential one holds, the light one is.

  10. So many of the students of Universal Medicine experienced the feeling of “coming home” when they attended their first presentation, and I am one of them. The feeling was like returning to something that was so familiar, something that I had always suspected was there waiting for me but always remained just out of reach, that was until I was offered the missing ingredient, love; true love that is, not the emotional love that we have been sold as being it but can’t be as true love contains not one ounce of emotion and is the key to finally getting off the crazy merry-go-round of life.

  11. When we seek outside ourselves for what lies within we enjoin the merry-go-round of modern day society that if we are honest with every passing year that just seems to get faster and faster.

    1. It is so true Suse, and it also seems that the faster is goes, the further away we also seem to be from the truth of all that we are seeking. The beautiful fact is that regardless of however far we wander or spin, that which lies within forever awaits our return without judgement or criticism, only open arms.

  12. So many people, if not everybody, have a sense that this isn’t it but it seems that comfort is far too great for some to really question and be open to another way of being. It really is up to every one of us whether, and when, to give true love a go.

  13. My first presentation with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine was in London, and I was so taken by the truth that I could feel that was being presented, I had to hear more and through that I have found that the life I was living was not fulfilling or full of joy as it is today, because now I know myself, and the love that I hold within.

  14. I remember so clearly that feeling of ‘coming home’ when I attended my first presentation by Serge Benhayon and rediscovering the true meaning of ‘love’.
