As a child, the deeper aspect of life never occurred to me, purely because I simply lived it. Life and I were one and the same, we flowed together harmoniously; it was only when, at the age of about 9, that, when confronted with an emotionally challenging time, I jumped ship. I chose to separate from myself and in doing so, separated from life. I subsequently spent the next 35 years in a permanent state of mild tension, a tension that I did a masterful job of covering up by managing to assemble myself into what can only be described as a ‘comfortably happy state’.
‘Comfortably happy’, would be for most a very enviable way of being and yet, deep down I knew that it just wasn’t it. I had a sense of looking for something and yet was never quite sure quite what it was that I was looking for. I looked for this unnamed thing in some pretty strange places, I searched for it in extreme physical fitness, somehow believing that if my body was in what I perceived to be ‘pristine physical condition’ then it would eventually lead me to some mystical elevated state. I explored the world of drugs, believing that an altered state could potentially open a hidden trap door that I could then step through and ‘et voila’, a hitherto hidden world would suddenly be revealed. I also dived headlong into the world of spirituality, feeling finally that I had found what it was that I had been looking for. But alas, spirituality eventually fizzled out in the same way as all my other fruitless pursuits.
Feeling rather directionless and surrounded by an ever-growing amount of crumbling beliefs, I began attending the workshops held by Universal Medicine. Serge Benhayon was and still is the presenter and although I didn’t have any initial light bulb moments or feelings of ‘coming home’, I was none the less intrigued. So much so, that I have continued to attend workshops and presentations for the last 7 years. Over that time, I have come to realise much. What I now understand to be true is that Serge Benhayon is a person who, like the rest of us, dis-connected from life but unlike the rest of us, was able to systematically work his way back. Not only that, but once back, he turned around and came back to get the rest of us. He has subsequently dedicated himself to supporting every single one of us to make our way back to our natural connection with life. Serge Benhayon stands as a living reflection of what it looks and feels like to be one with life, he emanates the intrinsic qualities of life through his living way because he and life are one and the same.
What Serge has brought through is nothing short of extraordinary. He has mapped the way home, not in a haphazard or random way but in a meticulous and systematic way. A simple way that, when lived, will lead any single one of us (and all of us) back to where we began.
So, the crumbs that I have been trying to follow my whole life, that never lead me anywhere, have been replaced by a clearly lit path, one that Serge Benhayon has laid, one loving paver at a time. By following this path, I have found myself re-united once more with life and back in the arms of God.
