I want to thank Universal Medicine for the weekend’s adventure that I experienced in Lennox Head (12th October 2012).
After much thought, I decided to attend some Universal Medicine workshops with my girlfriend to gain insight into her world; it is such a unique part of her life that I would like to learn more about it for myself. We went first to the Friday night discussion where I was warmly greeted and asked to fill in the required forms and pay the prescribed fees ($5 only) …No different to any of the other seminars I’ve attended over my life.
Serge Benhayon, the presenter, came on stage and announced that he had been having a discussion over the past month with a prominent Uniting Church Minister (a self-proclaimed cult expert), as it had become apparent that some sources were painting Serge in the light of a cult leader. The banter was easygoing between them, with the Minister being introduced as David Millikan; it was stated that they had had quite detailed discussions relating to Millikan’s belief that Serge’s group was not a cult.

David Millikan, your approach was so very wrong.
Most people have the ability of self-reflection or self-analysis to determine whether what they are doing has a sense of being right or wrong.
It seems that to gatecrash a Universal Medicine evening, lie to the host (Serge Benhayon) and attempt to incite reactions from those in attendance for a story, displays a complete lack of self-analysis. Such behaviour should be illegal! Continue reading “David Millikan: The Greatest Story Ever… Missed”

My friends and I were ambushed tonight (Friday 12th October 2012).
Once a month I choose to attend a presentation by Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon: I choose to go because I like what he has to say. I could have gone to watch a band with some friends… I could have stayed home and had a pizza and watched a movie. But I felt like going, because I like the people there and what Serge Benhayon has to say. Continue reading “David Millikan: I Could Have Stayed At Home And Had Pizza!”

Two thousand years ago a man from Nazareth was accused and put on trial for challenging the civil and religious order of the day.
On Friday evening, October 12, 2012 at Lennox Head Community Centre, a strangely similar series of events unfolded. Here we were, a group of citizens gathered together to listen to a man, Serge Benhayon, share an ancient message in the modern day. The message is not unlike that of Jesus’. It is a simple but profound message: that we have lost our way of love. The way back to love for our world, and ourselves, is first found ‘within’. If we learn to stop, feel and trust what really feels true, we will always make self-loving choices, which will reflect to make our world a more nurturing, equal and harmonious place.

On Friday night 12th October 2012, I attended a presentation by Serge Benhayon from Universal Medicine.
Prior to the presentation Serge introduced David Millikan to the audience. David is a Uniting Church minister and self-appointed cult expert, and we were told that David and Serge had previously discussed their philosophical viewpoints at length. Continue reading “David Millikan: A Man of God?”

Can it be possible in the year 2012 in Australia – a political democracy professing freedom of speech, that a Minister from the Uniting Church could walk into a Presentation about living a full, healthy and loving life and harass the gathered people and accuse them of being a cult? Yes, this did happen on October 12th at the Lennox Head Community Centre and I was there to witness it. Continue reading “David Millikan: Can It Be Possible?”

Why is it that in a country where bullying in schools and in the workplace is not acceptable, where domestic violence and abuse are not tolerated, and where assault and rape are chargeable offences, that the media, or individuals acting on behalf of a media organisation, can be allowed to bully and abuse without the same accountability?
In a country which prides itself on free speech, why is it that a man and an organisation who simply and consistently present another way of living – a way of living that is not harming to self or others, and that supports responsibility in taking care of the body – find themselves in the middle of a witch hunt?

Last night (12th October 2012) I went to a talk by Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine on the subject of Esoteric Medicine at Lennox Head Community Centre.
Serge invited an unscheduled guest, David Millikan, onto the stage. He had turned up on the night and asked if he might ask some questions of the audience about their experiences with Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. David introduced himself as a Uniting Church Minister with a degree in Theology: previously Millikan had been meeting and talking with Serge extensively and had stated that Universal Medicine did not fit the criteria for being a ‘cult’.

What happened on the night of Friday 12 October, 2012 when the press stormed a peaceful meeting at Lennox Head Community Centre, was awful. I arrived after a busy work week to come to what is always a lovely, relaxed talk in a safe, friendly environment.
Instead, when I walked in there were people with TV cameras standing on a couch trying to film members of the public who had paid to come for the talk. When I asked one of the press what was going on, they said they had come to “…film a silly meeting”, perhaps not realising I myself was coming to the meeting. It was rude and disrespectful, and discriminating against my, and others’ beliefs. Continue reading “DAVID MILLIKAN: That Was Bullying”

The recent actions of the Australian media, and namely David Millikan, when he orchestrated a military-style surprise attack with a well-known major news station on the Esoteric Medicine presentation by Serge Benhayon on Oct. 12th, struck me as a scene out of the history books – where many groups of people all over the world were persecuted for pursuing their own spiritual or religious beliefs (such as Catholics attacking Muslims during the Crusades, or the same rounding up and elimination of the Cathars).
