A Letter to Kate McClymont, Sydney Morning Herald Journalist – By a Client of Universal Medicine

Dear Kate McClymont,

When I read the Sydney Morning Herald article recently penned by you about Serge Benhayon being a so-called ‘cult’ leader – ordered to open the books amongst a number of other accusatory insinuations – I was inspired. As I read on and grappled with the fact that you call yourself an ‘investigative journalist’ as well as an “incorrigible gossip” (1), I was inspired even more.

Mind over Matter

When I did a lot of Buddhist meditation in the past there was the saying “mind over matter.” As an example of “mind over matter” we would meditate for one or more hours – being guided through the meditation not to move any part of our body to the extent that my legs would go completely numb, and at the end of the meditation it would take 30 minutes or more before my legs could walk.

During the meditation it was evident that I was not the only one that found it hard to stay in the same position and not move, and the person leading the meditation would make the point about it being about mind over matter – in other words, if you focus on, for instance, a visualised point in your mind or you ‘followed’ your breath, you would at some point not notice the ‘matter’ – being that your legs had gone through pins and needles, to pain, to numbness.

What’s Happened to the Joy of Life?

Work is something of a dread for many of us. We generally see it as a box to tick and something that we must get through to get by in life. We sometimes even think of being in another job or position within the company or someplace else and convince ourselves that will bring back the spark to what we do. We may even seek to undertake jobs that we know in the past brought us some satisfaction, such as turning a hobby into a fulltime career: for some this seems to work well but unless we are living a fullness of joy in whatever we do, we seek reward and or satisfaction instead and then, are we living less than what we could in life?

Self-Care Proficiency – Do we need a Licence?

In life we have a number of proficiency licences, such as a driving licence, which demonstrates that we have reached a certain level of proficiency in handling and driving a vehicle. In having the licence there are certain rules of the road and road conduct that you agree to abide by, and when you don’t there can be further education, or even fines or other penalties.

Sea Shells and the Winds of Change

New Year visitors to the coast were noticeably absent from the streets – possibly melting in a corner somewhere, or indoors making use of the air conditioning systems. The red and yellow surf life-saving club flags were indicating no lifeguards on duty. The beaches were closed. The days before this one had been blisteringly hot with high oven-heat temperature and winds increasing – at times gusting to almost cyclonic conditions – blowing all that was not tied down across the streets and along the nearby foreshore. The tropical low system came in from the north, impacting much in its path. Continue reading “Sea Shells and the Winds of Change”

The Esoteric – our Divine and True Origins

There is so much about the Esoteric that many either don’t understand or recoil from when they hear this word mentioned. This is mainly due to this word having been bastardised and misused for centuries now, probably due to the fact that the church wanted to control the masses or stop any movement that would allow others to discover truth or a deeper connection to God.

In this blog I want to debunk the many myths and lies around the word Esoteric and share with you what the Esoteric has brought to my life. Continue reading “The Esoteric – our Divine and True Origins”
