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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. “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)

    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.

  4. 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.”

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. ‘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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 .

  13. 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.

  14. 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!!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. The current way of intelligence and knowledge have a vested interest in protecting their own intelligence and knowledge. A protection racket to keep the status quo.

    1. Indeed through the practices of exclusion and elitism this protection racket seeks to distract us from living our natural wisdom and knowing of the inner heart.
