Unfounded Claims or Ageless Wisdom

Gina Dunlop’s article on Journalist Truth made me realise the threat any innovator faces. Visionaries throughout history (Galileo, Copernicus) or in modern times (Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela) seem bound to confront the established theorists of the day.

At each point the established theorists say, “if it’s not proven, it won’t work”. But what they are actually saying is, “we don’t understand what you’re saying”, “we don’t have the means to test it” or “we are threatened by what you are saying”.

Many of these innovators and visionaries continue their work, often in the face of untold pressure, until the weight of anecdotal evidence and eventually scientific evidence, become too great to ignore. Then, of course that work is ‘accepted’ and the ‘theorists’ line up behind it and vehemently defend, the next innovation.

It does appear strange how quickly ‘academics’ and ‘scientists’ circle the wagons to prevent new ideas from getting in. Surely that is contrary to the truest quest for learning (maybe it’s only knowledge they covet). Radioactive uranium was still radioactive before Geiger counters existed, scurvy existed before we understood the role of vitamin C, in fact we seemed to have reframed the reality that humanity is playing catch up trying to understand the world with the idea that we are continually on the edge of discovery.

What is curious about the teachings of Serge Benhayon and ‘The Way of The Livingness’ is not that they are radical, but that the teachings are not new. In fact they have been presented over and over again by people from different cultures across the world, across the centuries.

“Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.”Hippocrates (400bc)

Universal Medicine makes this current by suggesting how we live our life is our greatest form of medicine. Please Note: Universal Medicine (UniMed) doesn’t say ‘ONLY’ form of medicine but simply suggests that what we do every day has the biggest impact on how we are everyday.

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Christ; Luke 17:21)

Universal Medicine makes this current by suggesting that maybe Christ was onto something. Looking within, rather than look to another is something many have said in the past. Please Note: Universal Medicine doesn’t say, “the way to connect to your soul is to follow UniMed and everything they say.” Students are reminded time and time again, “words alone mean nothing, discern everything you hear, read by connecting to yourself, and feel what is being said.”

Which is similar to the Dalai Lama’s statement,

“The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s own reason and critical analysis.”

Then we move to personal responsibility.

“Man wretched Man, thou shalt be thought to know, who bears within himself the inborn cause of woe. Unhappy race! That never yet could tell, how near their good and happiness they dwell.” (Pythagoras, Golden Verses)

Universal Medicine makes this current by suggesting that we take responsibility for our choices, choose to express from our inner-heart and that through this we may find a joy, familiar, but not lived for a long time.

Could the scariest thing being presented by Universal Medicine be the realisation that all of us including priests, professors, inventors and other ‘brilliant minds’ have been looking for an answer for centuries and don’t want to admit that it has already been given to us, many times over? What if after all our searching, the answer has been right under our noses all along? (The answer is not Serge Benhayon or any Universal Medicine practitioner, the answer is all of us equally).

This could be a bitter pill to swallow for many of us, not to mention those that have accumulated a lot of power by having ‘expert knowledge’. Which might just explain why we seem to keep the focus on looking forward and dismiss suggestions to look within.

  1. This is such a powerful statement Joel, – “words alone mean nothing, discern everything you hear, read by connecting to yourself, and feel what is being said.”
    This is asking a person to tune into their body, and whether we like it or not, most of us can feel these feelings, when something isn’t ‘right’ and when something is ‘right’, we cannot deny it.

    Our lives’ aren’t based on science alone, there is something else that we tend to ignore and that is how we live and care for ourselves in our everyday livingness, is important.

    Whoever or however it is presented, comes with a choice, that is whether a person wishes to take heed or not, it is still a choice. These choices are there everyday, from the time we wake up, to the time we put our bodies to bed, there is still a choice in the matter. Simple.

  2. Haven’t humanity had enough of this pattern of attacking amazing people in history who, later in their life or after they died we start giving them credit for their contribution? About time we swallowed our pride and got over the initial discomfort and resistance and say ‘What if?’

  3. I loved reading the different quotes from everyone, yes over the ages we have always had the truth but alongside this is has been ignored, denied or bastardised. I feel you are right here ‘Could the scariest thing being presented by Universal Medicine be the realisation that all of us including priests, professors, inventors and other ‘brilliant minds’ have been looking for an answer for centuries and don’t want to admit that it has already been given to us, many times over? What if after all our searching, the answer has been right under our noses all along?’ Do we crave individuality more than true unity which first resides within and our connection with our essence and the divine. It is not hard it is easy, it is not complicated it is simple. We have been looking the other way for far too long for answers when we had them within all this time. May the truth shine so bright that no longer can we look the other way ✨

  4. It does expose the ridiculousness of our behaviours as we choose to resist or deny the reflection of truth offered to us time and time again throughout the ages, as you have illustrated. Our incessant indulgence in seeking identification and power in the world outside of us offers no true freedom and is clearly not working. Only through our connection to our essence, our Soul, the Kingdom within do we truly come to know what freedom truly is as we live governed not by any one’s rules but by our knowing of truth from within.

  5. As a race of human-beings it seems to me we are myopic, The teachings of the Ancient Wisdom have been around for thousands of years. The thread of these teachings has always been the same that we are Gods that have fallen by our own choice to explore creation into the world of our own making. Therefore is it possible that because we have created this way of living it is much more difficult to give up and let go because we have so much invested in it. So that when someone comes along to shake us from our self indulgence we get angry and retaliate?

    1. Beautifully expressed Mary. Of course if we have invested in something, have identity because of what we have invested in, as well as pride, time, money and that we are ‘right, if someone came a long and said ‘that’s not it’ or ‘that’s a lie’, then because of the identity and individualism we have gained may get angry and retaliate. Being willing to be in our heart and let go of individualisation and ownership is very healing. It starts to free us up to feel what is true, something I have learnt and am learning over time.

  6. We seem to dislike anyone that comes along to rock our boat of a comfortable life we have made for ourselves.
    Isn’t there a saying there are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and change. You can’t avoid change, it’s mandatory, progress however is optional.
    We seem to be digging our heels in and saying no to change which is inevitable nothing is static the fact that the earth rotates around the sun is surely enough proof of this.

  7. The name of the game it is: ‘We know everything but we don’t want to admit it’ Then, the rules of the game are created to complicate what is simple.

  8. Our relationship with awareness is not an easy one. That is why, when someone who is more aware shares his/her awareness with others, this is not always welcome. The key is to normalize that awareness is always an asset for the all.

  9. “Man wretched Man, thou shalt be thought to know, who bears within himself the inborn cause of woe. Unhappy race! That never yet could tell, how near their good and happiness they dwell.” (Pythagoras, Golden Verses)
    Universal Medicine makes this current by suggesting that we take responsibility for our choices, choose to express from our inner-heart and that through this we may find a joy, familiar, but not lived for a long time”.
    The Ancient Wisdom Teachings presented by Serge Benhayon have inspired many changes in my life from personal choice to take more responsibility and deepen expression from within – the fiery light not lived for a long time is being re-membered and re-ignited.

  10. Over the past 9 years of attending Universal Medicine Presentations by its founder Serge Benhayon -all students are continuously reminded to discern, discern, discern the energy of everything first, including what we hear from Serge.
    “Students are reminded time and time again, “words alone mean nothing, discern everything you hear, read by connecting to yourself, and feel what is being said.”

  11. Responsibility love and true medicine from our bodies and how we live has been life changing and inspirational to myself and many thousands of others offered by Universal Medicine with the ageless wisdom and opening up my true life with purpose understanding and grace.

  12. It may be that we don’t value wisdom because we don’t apply it to the way we live and make changes. I’m sure in some ways we have held wisdom as knowledge, maybe even fought over the truth (especially to do with religion), but haven’t applied it to become our living way. Words can be used cheaply but when the truth of words become our living way they take on true meaning. Wisdom is really there to be lived.

  13. ‘Universal Medicine (UniMed) doesn’t say ‘ONLY’ form of medicine but simply suggests that what we do every day has the biggest impact on how we are everyday.’ Simple truth that makes absolute sense and we cannot deny, no one can but yet we can choose to look the other way and just continue with what we have invested in for so long.

  14. What if the role of a true scientist is to confirm what we already know instead of creating or finding something new? This would change the approach completely and make us all scientists of life.

  15. Terrific Joel. And what I feel strongly too is, it is not just those individuals who lie, manipulate and take control and our attention away from truth, but more the majority who sit back and watch it all. We are all equal in our all knowing of the truth of the origins of who we are and the universal truth, so sitting back and accepting the lies means humanity is complicit, and deliberately delaying knowing the inevitable – that creation is created, we are not meant to be here but instead meant to be focussing on how to truly evolve to coexist in harmony and with love.

  16. The Ageless Wisdom is aptly named because it does not date. It simply comes around and around every era through various vessels (prophets of truth/soulfully aligned people) until such a time that every man and woman awakens to the truth that he/she is not only a Son of God, but also a God him/herself.

  17. I love how understanding and observations bring another look at things:
    From “if it’s not proven, it won’t work” to “we don’t understand what you’re saying”, or “we are threatened by what you are saying”. From here you can have a completely different conversation to when you react to the first sentence.

  18. Without innovation and challenging ourselves to learn to expand our present awareness and intelligence we will not evolve, and what is worse we will be merely standing still constantly regurgitating what we already know .

  19. Ageless Wisdom has indeed always been there, and many messengers have given the wisdom that Serge Benhayon is sharing in our world today. All the answers to all our woes have always been there and we lived life after life in misery, although not everyone would agree with this. I only have to look at my own life and at the lives of so many others who are living what Serge shared to know that Universal Medicine is on to something, something big and very healthy, loving and joyful.

  20. Oh heavens what a blog! Each quote reminding us of how many others through history have shared with us the simplicity of how to live. Yet we are so busy searching for the next ‘enlightened’ moment that we totally miss it. Not so intelligent really – and yes – I reckon Universal Medicine might be onto something!!

  21. I was pondering on something similar today, if we had listened to Plato when he said “Eat to live, not live to eat”, we would not have the food addictions, obesity and everything else that is going on in the world of food. This simple saying is repeated by Serge Benhayon when presenting that food is simply a physical fuel for the body that is needed for our survival, that when we eat food we ought to feel for ourselves why we are going towards certain foods, is it because we want the nourishment, or is it because we want the numbing?

    1. A simple message that has been around for centuries, but our addictions always seem to over-ride what our bodies have been sharing. When we start to understand that our life can be taken back by re-connecting to our essence, the addictions are slowly and simply exposed and eliminated from our lives. And this is what Joel and Viktoria are sharing; we can choice a different way.

  22. It has been given to us many times over and over and yet still we are searching for something on the outside and have not truly grasped the value and wisdom that has been passed to us.
