I write this in response to the recent media coverage focused on Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine through both the print and television media. This comes as a question – or series of – to those involved in the creation of these stories, and furthermore to all those involved in the media industry.
Why is it that our journalists today are not dedicated to looking at the real issues? Why are so many of the articles and segments we read and see based on sensationalised dramas, hearsay or gossip? We only need to look at the situation of the paparazzi to see how terribly ill the media industry has become.
I realise that there is a pressure to write the most interesting article, to sell the most papers or to receive the highest ratings, and drama certainly has proven itself a bestseller, but at what cost to those whom these mistruths are written about? Have you not considered the possibility that what we do to one, we do to all, and in line with this, is it not too much to ask that we bring integrity and respect to the table in all we do!
Moving on from this, it seems to me that we are missing the bigger picture, and certainly only a small minority are writing about it! As a journalist or reporter you are in a position that holds great influence. Whether it is a local paper, or the national or international news, your words are seen and felt by all, so why not start looking at the bigger picture? Why not start asking the questions that humanity continues to keep in the background? Questions such as:
- Why illness and disease is escalating out of control around us, whilst all forms of medicine struggle to keep up?
- Why infertility affects one in six couples in Australia alone?
- Why breast cancer is on the increase in every country around the globe, with the UK estimating 226,870 NEW cases in 2012!
- Why obesity is now a global epidemic and people are out of control with their eating habits?
- Why the global economy is in devastation with government leaders desperately trying to cover it up or fix it, and no one addressing the underlying cause of why this is happening?
- Why is the consumption of alcohol so widely accepted around the globe when science has proven it a poison to the human body and worse when our bodies actually tell us this each time we partake in a so called ‘big night’ aka the day after?
- Why are there still such extremes between wealth and poverty throughout the world regardless of all the effort that has been put into global charities and assistance?
- Why are there silent wars occurring between nations, within nations, between neighbours, within families and even within ourselves?
And to get even more personal…
- Why stimulants such as caffeine and sugar have become a global addiction with many of us unable to get through our working days without our daily cup of coffee or hit of chocolate?
- Why many rely on alcohol or drugs to deliver a good time, or to escape their emotional pains and issues?
- Why so many of us still choose to smoke cigarettes when we are all well aware of the devastating effects they have on our bodies?
- And why, when we can all feel on some level that the way we are living cannot be all that there is to this life, do we continue to defend it, and then attack those who offer something different? Is it possible that we are not in fact the intelligent race of beings we suppose ourselves to be?
Everybody seems to be skirting around the edges of these topics, Universal Medicine however does not. It is asking these questions, raising awareness, supporting individuals to be more real, more honest and more deeply loving and truth-full in life, starting with self, but in consideration of all humanity, and not just one or a group of us. If you enter into the recently created blog sites connected with Universal Medicine, you will get a taste of this. Real people, sharing their stories and feelings openly and honestly; now this is inspiring writing. Imagine these stories in your local or national papers, something real and tangible that people can connect with.
It is worth mentioning here that if we start to truly look at and be honest about how we are living as a race of beings – from the decline in global health, economics and lifestyle to our individual experience of life and what our bodies are showing us through illness and disease (from cancer and heart disease to the smallest of niggling aches and pains), one cannot deny the fact that there is a great need for change. The statistics are our living science – a science that we can no longer choose to ignore.
Universal Medicine presents this science; it doesn’t hide behind or push aside the reality of what is truly going on. It is an expression that was founded in the service of and for all humanity, and it has come at a time when the world is in great need of some true truth and love. Why has nobody grabbed on to this for a story – Is the welfare of humanity not at our highest consideration? Surely this is something to be considered newsworthy!
So I say to the media community – rather than write about a few people’s negative opinions and accusations regarding Universal Medicine (or anyone or thing for that matter), why not explore the philosophies presented here for yourselves? Seek out the real truths and present this in your papers, for it is you – the media – that has the authority and the means to reach the great many, a great many that are in need of your truth-full expression.
