Sleaze, Sensationalism and Kate McClymont… Journalist or Professional Gossip?

I just read Vanessa McComb’s article – Kate McClymont cries ‘Cult’ in a Case of Journalism without Investigation – in response to what seemed to be a copy and paste article by Sydney Morning Herald investigative journalist Kate McClymont. This was the first I had heard of this article as I tend to avoid the corruption and sensationalism that typifies the media these days. When I read that the headline ‘Sleazy, millionaire, cult leader” had been tagged in a newsfeed to Serge Benhayon, founder of Universal Medicine and complementary Esoteric practitioner, my first and only thought was that they really had the wrong guy!

Kate McClymont cries ‘Cult’ in a Case of Journalism without Investigation

It was with considerable disbelief while online at work this past Monday, that I discovered the headline, “‘Sleazy’ millionaire ‘cult leader’” tagged in my newsfeed to a photo of someone I know very well to be anything but these defamatory and insulting words. Which for me instantly begs the question: what is it about the media today that it is so willing to print lies about someone without researching the facts?

Why is it that in the so called ‘investigative journalism’ industry there is an obvious and rather blatant ‘guilty until proven innocent’ attitude and approach by the very profession that journalists choose to serve their community with?

Esther Rockett is no Expert on Universal Medicine – A True Family Story about Universal Medicine and Parenting

Esther Rockett has been making false accusations about Universal Medicine across a huge range of topics with zero qualifications, experience or actual information and facts. Yes, Esther Rockett, self-appointed ‘child safety advocate’, ‘cult expert’, ‘health care activist’, and who also seemingly pegs herself as a ‘patient advocate’, ‘freelance writer’, ‘consultant on relationships, religion, social media, culture, the arts and human rights and justice’ – did I leave anything out??? Oh yes… ‘expert’ on child psychology and learning development as well as Universal Medicine parents and children.

Esther Rockett, self-appointed ‘child safety advocate’, ‘cult expert’, ‘health care activist’…

Regarding the latter, Esther Rockett has made baseless and meaningless accusations against the parenting practices of those who attend Universal Medicine events and choose to live the religion The Way of The Livingness. Esther Rockett has no qualifications or experience for her assertions about Universal Medicine students and their parenting, however, like in all other areas where Esther Rockett demonstrates her complete lack of expertise, this does not hold her back in her ridiculous commentary and completely false claims about what Universal Medicine presents.

A Letter to our Community about Abuse

Dear Community,

For the majority of my childhood, teen years and early adulthood, I grew up with abuse in my life. At the time I did not know it for the abuse it was because it was accepted in society as the norm.

The abuse I’m talking about is self-abuse and it is rife throughout society at present, in all age brackets.

I read Susie Williams’ letter to Esther Rockett and it took me back to when I was 15, nearly 20 years ago now. At first I felt it wasn’t so bad when I was 15 because there was no cutting and not many kids that I was aware of who were on anti-depressants, but the more I got pondering the more I realised there was more to uncover here.

The truth is that at first I didn’t want to admit how empty and self-harming my teen years were, and I didn’t want to see that at that time I didn’t have the same strength as Susie to step up and make my life different. I now see the harm of not admitting what was there, and that not being honest about what has truly gone on in my life would prevent me from fully appreciating what teens like Susie Williams are choosing and inspiring in others.

Just to give you a small intro to the abuse I have lived with… Continue reading “A Letter to our Community about Abuse”

Ex-Police Officer’s Life Turned around through Serge Benhayon: The Truth about the Lies of Esther Rockett & Lance Martin

INTRO: Serge Benhayon’s work has offered many hundreds of people a way of living joy-full and full lives, and ways of healing to deal with seemingly intractable health issues. Against this background of offering true support and a path to wellbeing, he has been mercilessly attacked by two individuals, Esther Rockett and Lance Martin, who have spread malicious lies about his work and life. If the public is left wondering what to believe in the miasma Rockett and Martin have spread about Serge Benhayon, Ray Karam provides a clear view through the pair’s malodour.

My Life Before and After Meeting Serge Benhayon

When I first met Serge Benhayon 6 years ago, I was a broken down ex-Police officer suffering a number of chronic physical and physiological conditions, as well as having lost any confidence that I could trust people. This was coupled with having an extremely sensitive radar for anything untoward and a hypersensitivity for anything criminal, or anything even with a hint of manipulation in it.

The Truth about Universal Medicine: Esther Rockett’s False Parallels with Scientology

INTRO: In this article on Universal Medicine and Scientology Liane Mandalis brings her usual power and grace to call to account the latest round of cyberbullying by Esther Rockett and Lance Martin. This is a breath of fresh air amidst another round of lies that in recent days has seen Esther Rockett attempt to exploit the plight of ex-Scientologists and capitalise on their current publicity by inventing false parallels between Universal Medicine and the Church of Scientology.

Truth has a gorgeous transparency to it, a quality that is reflected by all those who choose to walk with it. As it has done nothing wrong, it has nothing to hide. Truth moves on a steady course and is absolute in its every step. In stark contrast, lies need to move often to give the illusion of covering more ground. They also lack a solid foundation on which to stand, and so much like losing your footing in an earth tremor, shaky ground is a clear indication of something ‘big’ coming your way.

When you can’t find a hole in the truth, your next move is to attempt an ambush whereby you gather as many lies as you can in an effort to bury the truth beneath them. Of course, you will never bury what is true but what you can do is affect people’s perceptions of the truth by making your lies so outrageous and shocking that those who hear, without first having discerned for themselves what is true and what is not, will become so lost in reaction – outrage, indignation, horror, disgust etc. – that the truth will appear to be lost.
