There are some things that don’t make sense…
Doing research for high school, I came across so many history books that show the slaughter of young children, women and men in the name of Christianity. Yet one of the commandments is ‘Thou shalt not kill’… hmmm, does this not make sense to anyone else?
As well as this, during my research and through daily experiences, I kept coming across derogatory comments and statements about women… I’m not sure if anyone’s realised, but women are not ‘Satan’s spawn’… We were not sent to ‘tempt men into evil’, and we are definitely not ‘un-pure’ during our periods.
How is it that people can accept this as truth, and yet when they are met with love, and words that actually make sense, it sends them running? It doesn’t seem logical to me.
How it is that religion is able to get away with this and is seen as acceptable in society, but Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine have been hammered by the media for simply being love and showing the utmost care for others? They have not killed, or been discriminatory towards anyone.
The media seem to be worried about the fact that so many women attend these courses… but why? If ten ladies went to a cooking course to play with the fact that they are awesome cooks, no one would complain… So why is it that going to the courses to expand the fact that they themselves, as women, are amazing, is such a bad thing? Or is it just the fact that women are realising they need to love themselves more, and are then finding they deserve more love in return – and that the constant denigration by men/society is not acceptable, and men are becoming threatened?
Serge holds so much love for EVERYONE – man, woman, animal and vegetable. Maybe men are threatened and saddened by this… by the fact that they are not being their amazingness also, and seeing that amazingness in women. Maybe it’s hard to truly understand until we have connected to ourselves and have started to wonder how we have lived a life so disconnected, loveless and so lifeless that we didn’t notice all these things that don’t make sense.
It’s easy to recoil away from, and not truly accept, love. Most people are able to see this on a day-to-day basis – from the way people act if you open up and deeply care, they can shy away. Or the fact that so many have difficulty expressing the smallest ounce of kindness, or simply saying ‘I love you’ to someone they care about.
Is it possible that the thought of true love is confronting?
And what also doesn’t make sense… why is not going to bed late, not drinking, not doing drugs and not watching porn a bad thing? Any health specialist would condone this as a good thing, one for a healthy body.
I’d like to clear some things up, too…
I attend these courses simply because I KNOW there is so much more to the life that I live. I don’t go to these courses to pray, or to be a mindless sheep. I go there to learn, develop and unravel the love that is residing just inside me – and I now realise it is residing inside of every one of us. I’m not just referring to the amazing people that attend the courses, but to every amazing person. Even if they don’t know they are amazing yet – and yes, this means you, too!
Since I have found this amazing-ness, there is no going back for me. Yeah, people do think I’m a square at times because I go to bed early and eat/drink what works best for me, but I know I can feel super-awesome just by making super simple choices – and that makes sense to me.
