Universal Medicine – A Philosophy Based on Free-Will

by Kylie Jackson, Goonellabah, Australia

Last night (12/10/12) I attended an Esoteric Medicine Presentation by Universal Medicine (held at Lennox Head). As a guest speaker, David Millikan deceitfully claimed that he would like the opportunity to speak to the group openly and ask any questions he had.

What was experienced after this point was something that completely shocked myself and everyone else in the room (except for those with cameras filming the setup). David had set up an ambush that denigrated and imposed upon us all.

I was deeply upset by the tone in which David spoke – he had clearly orchestrated this attack to get a story for a well-known television station. The aggressiveness of the camera people was sickening and disturbing. And it made me question whether this was really happening? And, in Australia, in 2012?

This display of dishonesty, ill intent, imposition and manipulation was disgusting – and should not be tolerated in any way – and, definitely should not be legal.

How can this bullying be allowed in the world? What gives one person the right to denigrate and attack the choices of others? Since when are people not allowed to have free will to feel and choose what is true for them?

I am still feeling quite shell-shocked this morning – like I’ve been hit by something. It made me feel as though I had to justify or prove my choice to be me, and justify what I know to be true.

It was the complete opposite of what I experience from those who know me – everyone in my life can see, and continually makes comments on the way in which I live, my calmness, my responsibility and the wellness they can see just by looking in my eyes.

Universal Medicine lives absolute integrity, love, responsibility and professionalism in every way. Why does this upset people like David Millikan? Possibly because Universal Medicine shows another way – a deeper level of harmony and responsibility that can be lived – and this arises the possibility that they too can be making different choices – freely so.

Universal Medicine has never asked anyone to ‘believe’ what it presents – it just presents. It presents and honours the free will of every man, woman and child to feel for themselves what is true.

We have the free will to live that choice, to be true to ourselves, to live in a way that is harmonious, responsible, joyful and loving – Will someone please remind David Millikan?

  1. What happened was a shameless abuse of power. Universal Medicine and its attendees are being villified for their beliefs. THIS IS SO WRONG.

  2. Clearly expressed Kylie. For me this is a confirmation of the harm we do when we don’t feel. This is the malice that lives in us when we are scared to feel the truth. Its lived in me – I have imposed on others too. What David Millikan has instigated is an attack, but I understand what has driven him there. Compared to Love it’s powerless.

  3. Yes that is the essence of it, free will making YOUR OWN choices and being responsible for them. That is the only way to live.

  4. IF SO MUCH DECEIT IS BEHIND GETTING THE NEWS, WHAT ARE WE BEING FED ON THE TV, IN THE NEWS PAPER AND OTHER MEDIA?

    So much media attention has been given to Alan Jones and his disrespect of the Prime Minster. Unfortunately Julia Gillard knew attacks came with the territory in her position so she has minders etc around her. Yet even she would never have expected the events she has had to tolerate since taking up her position in Government.

    This event orchestrated by David Millikan is even more insidious.

    Those present at the Universal Medicine presentation are everyday people who are living with utmost respect with both themselves, neighbours, colleagues and anyone they meet out in their lives. They would never expect to be attacked the way they were on Friday evening. This is NOT what one expects to happen in Australia which prides itself on being a free country…

    The footage will be used in a way to back up David Millikan’s ideas, however, if people in a church congregation, enjoying a school concert or attending local council meeting had been treated the same way, the footage would have resulted in similar expressions on people’s faces.

  5. I was not at the meeting (due to being located in the UK) but I am shocked that such an orchestrated attack could take place and I am disturbingly surprised at the level of deceipt in which it was carried out. Surely a Uniting Church Minister should represent what the title suggests and not lies, deceipt and disruption of people going about their own business in the loving way that they choose to be their way.

  6. Thank you Kylie. I was not at the event personally, but have nonetheless felt the attack on Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon and his family, and the Universal Medicine student body. The behaviour of David Millikan and his media crew is absolutely unacceptable, and in my opinion, is a clear display of bullying and an absolute abuse of power granted them by their association and position with a media organisation, and under the false premise of reporting truth – which was an absolute fabrication in this instance.

  7. I do not have to justify or defend who I am and my choices to anyone, especially David Millikan. I guess he thought that if he told us his titles, Church Minister, theologian with a PHD, author and expert used by the police that these would make a difference, mean something? But bad behaviour is bad behaviour no matter your title, experience, age or background. David Millikan displayed his true colours as he attempted to hide it all behind a length of titles and an air of arrogance.

  8. Yes Kylie, what you present is so true. I have lost count of the number of times I have heard Serge Benhayon whilst presenting say something to the effect of ‘this is just a presentation for you to listen to and feel for yourself’ or ‘you don’t have to agree with anything I say, this is simply something I have felt and or live’. The truth is you cannot but feel the love in what Serge presents and in how he conducts himself with each and every student, and non student (as we witnessed on Friday evening) regardless of their intention and or integrity. This we saw first hand in how he responded to and handled the cruel and demeaning way in which he was being publicly attacked by a man who approached him asking for a fair go, when that was indeed so far from what was given in return. I too was there on Friday evening and it was horrific to see and feel how people were affected by this man’s indecent behaviour towards a group of human beings. And the fact that this man was representing our media, is even more saddening! We have seen countless persecutions and witch hunts throughout history, to me this has been a modern day version that is unacceptable and this sought of behaviour needs to stop.

  9. Thank You Kylie for sharing your experience of that event which has left you and many many others feeling disturbed by a church minister called David Millikan who was being paid by a TV company. How disgusting that any human being can even think of self reward with no moral compass to stop and feel the absolute and utter harm that was caused in order to get a ‘story’. Filming anyone without permission is surely illegal or do TV stations have more power because a church minister is involved?
    Why is the media getting away with their abusive ways to get a story?

  10. Thank you Kylie. You ask a good question when you say ‘Why does this upset people like David Millikan? Possibly because Universal Medicine shows another way – a deeper level of harmony and responsibility that can be lived – and this arises the possibility that they too can be making different choices – freely so.’ I feel that that is the heart of this matter. Universal Medicine inspires others to take full responsibility for their lives and it is people like David Millikan that, possibly, are too afraid to take that level of responsibility so feel justified in attacking those that do.

    1. Very true Tim. Rather than take responsibility for their own choices, some prefer to attempt to bring down those who are making true choices as to how they live.

  11. Kylie I am sure people will look back and read what David Millikan setup to do and how he acted in somewhat amazement. The level of invasion to create fabricated lies is horrific. We hear about the genocides happening by the Church in the 1600-1800’s or in the 1990’s Rwanda – are David Millikans actions not very similar if not the same? What is great is that there are now articles and blogs for all the read, written at the time.

  12. True Kylie, “What gives one person the right to denigrate and attack the choices of others?” when, as you rightly put it, the choice of the others being attacked are all about living in a way that is harmonious, responsible, joyful and loving.

  13. Thank you Kylie for sharing your experience of this deeply violating event and I agree that the reason for this attack is likely to be because David Millikan is so challenged that ‘Universal Medicine shows another way – a deeper level of harmony and responsibility that can be lived – and this arises the possibility that they too can be making different choices – freely so.’ However nothing can justify abusing other innocent members of society in this way and I hope that one day he will take responsibility for his actions.

  14. Yes Kylie it is shocking beyond comprehension to have witnessed first hand humanly gone wrong. Especially when Universal Medicine students give no cause to question ill-intent or provoking behavior to others. You have experienced the actions of a disconnected man from his heart. A sold out soul.

  15. Yes it is shocking to have experienced first hand the actions of a disconnected man from his heart. A sold out soul in action. It is unthinkable that people make this behavior their business.

  16. Thank you Kylie for sharing how this disrepectful intrusion made you feel. A sentence that particularly resonates with me is “Universal Medicine has never asked anyone to ‘believe’ what it presents – it just presents. It presents and honours the free will of every man, woman and child to feel for themselves what is true.”

  17. Thank you Kylie for sharing your experience. The use of force to control anothers choices to avoid ones own choices is shocking. All Universal Medicine has done is show all how life need not be controlled in such a way, hardly worth such vile attacks but then it may be that Universal Medicine has been rocking some very arrogant boats. Without such a rocking we would all still be in the dark about these behaviours even existing so I say carry on rocking!

  18. Universal Medicine respects and honours every person’s choice to believe what they want and choose how they feel to live – who is David Millikan to say otherwise? He came across very arrogant whilst imposing both his perception and his agenda onto us, and in doing so dishonoured and disrespected every person who was there…. a very unpleasant experience indeed.

  19. I feel just by choosing to live and be the truth of who we are as you so beautifully do Kylie, we expose the behaviour displayed by David Millikan and cohorts for the deceitful and dishonourable acts that they are. I know that despite their best efforts nothing will ever stop me from choosing to live the love that I am and that can never be taken away.

  20. I have wondered since that night if David Millikan has ever paused to reconsider his actions and the abuse that he and others perpetrated. Regardless, one thing he I doubt he would have expected is the way many of those present haven’t cowered away but instead have spoken out and written about events on that night, calling him out for his total lack of integrity and utter disregard for the people attending. Thank you to those who were present for exposing what really happened that night and to the many hundreds of others who have made supportive comments on the various blog sites, all of which helps to rebalance what occurred.

  21. This blog is the True version of how these stories come to be on TV on the current affairs type shows!
    Absolute bullying tactics were used and, sadly, I am certain that Universal Medicine is not the only organisation who has been subjected to these tactics to produce the smoke and mirrors stories that we as a society gobble up in desperation from our empty lives.
    Universal Medicine happens to be an organisation that has supported many people to turn their lives around from being miserable and unhealthy to living with a visible vitality, Joy and commitment to life and humanity.
    A sharp contrast to what is offered by much of the media.
    I know which business I will continue to support.

  22. Universal Medicine demonstrates a way, and supports all people to live according to their own free will, like no other organisation I have encountered.

  23. This is a great blog, a true expression of injustice that needs to be aired so that such types of media ambush have more chance of being called to account in the future, for the journalistic malpractice they truly are.

  24. Great post Kylie – “Universal Medicine lives absolute integrity, love, responsibility and professionalism in every way” I so agree – also with “Universal Medicine has never asked anyone to ‘believe’ what it presents – it just presents. It presents and honours the free will of every man, woman and child to feel for themselves what is true.” My experience exactly.

  25. Thank you Kylie for your clear account of the terrible events that occurred the night when David Millikan hijacked the Universal Medicine presentation and turned on the audience with cameras and false accusations. Unfortunately the media acts like they are above the law and can make their own rules, their actions are abusive and the time has come for the media to be held accountable for their harmful actions towards innocent people.

  26. Beautifully expressed Kylie, “Universal Medicine has never asked anyone to ‘belief’ what it presents – it just presents. It presents and honours the free will of every man, woman and child to feel for themselves what is true.” and from my association with Universal Medicine and it’s Practitioners it is most definitely the truth.

  27. People not causing any harm to others should not be made to justify or defend their choice to live how they choose to…. however those causing harm, like David Millikan and his crew did that night, should be held accountable for such abusive behaviour.

  28. There is something that stands out in this blog for me and that is the fact that no matter what happens – and this is ambush was a disgraceful ‘happening’ – the truth is the truth and will eternally be so. It seems to me that David Millikan in this instance was not so much upset by the Universal Medicine philosophy or teachings, but that he was under the influence of an entirely different ‘paymaster’, whose allure he was unable to resist. This had nothing to do with truth and everything to do with ‘fame, fortune’ and of course glamour. So we must make a choice about what we want in life. Do we choose to know truth, or do we allow the force of recognition to steer us off course for our few minutes of fame?

    1. Well said Richard, I couldn’t agree more. This will go down in history as an event without moral compass, when people exercising their free will by attending a presentation from Serge Benhayon were subjected to an unprovoked ‘attack” set up simply for the ‘shock horror’ sensationalism it would create and the money it would earn. As you say so wisely, “This had nothing to do with truth and everything to do with ‘fame, fortune’ and of course glamour”, but as we know, in the end truth will always prevail.

  29. Well said and very true Kylie, what Universal Medicine presents seems to challenge some people and then many hundreds of people have changed their lives through making choices that improve their health and well being. There is never any pressure or coercion of any sort, there has always been the free will to choose and be inspired by the teachings, or to walk away if it doesn’t suit you.

  30. Thank you Kylie. I heard about this awful incident from friends and I was left feeling horrified that something like this could happen in Australia. I have been kidding myself to believe that there is religious freedom here but there most certainly is not. It seems to me that the only religions with so called ‘freedom’ are established religions. Unfortunately many established religions have used their ‘freedom’ throughout the ages to justify things like pedophilia, murder, fraud and abuse on a grand scale.

    How horrendous it is that a religion that offers the world true love, responsibility and evolution is attacked.

  31. When someone attacks us for what we believe, the automatic reaction is to try to defend, but this just plays into the hands of the attacker. In our defensive position we can then be accused of having something to hide. The energy at play is very sneaky and manipulative.

  32. We live in a society where the free will and the choice of people are respected on the whole. This is part of the way of life in our society. Given this how is it that these sorts of things can happen? That someone can make allegations of a person or group of people and think that this is actually ok and acceptable. When it clearly is not.

  33. Well said Kylie Jackson. Respect for the rights of others completely and utterly thrown out the window, and bullying, deceptive tactics installed in its place. And this, orchestrated by a man who claims to be a ‘man of God’? I see none of God’s love, let alone respect for the rights of others in his actions whatsoever.
    So much was exposed on this occasion also, about the flagrant disrespect of people’s rights on the part of the media here – of our rights to gather to hear a presentation that meant a great deal to all in terms of the quality of how we live our everyday lives.

  34. Beautifully and warmly expressed Kylie. You can feel in your words ‘live and let live’. David Millikan would benefit from reading this, as well as all people in positions of power and leadership. As I read more and more I felt how as a society we should be living – our truth, allowing others the free will to choose what they will. The depth of imposition that goes on these days is brutal towards each other and our natural development of who we are and the cycle we live in. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

  35. People who are living responsible lives, being more open with themselves and others, being able to work more hours without feeling fatigued, not blaming others for what happens to them, committing to life and being aware, as much as they can, to what energy they choose… upsets some people. There is a strength in being honest when ‘our stuff’ is brought up, to admit that it is not the other person, group or community.

  36. That night David’s and his teams actions were absolute bullying. It was interesting to observe what these actions were designed to do- it was barbaric and total supremecy in thinking that one person can judge and condemn a group of people for their way of life. Totally ridiculous and arrogant.

  37. “Possibly because Universal Medicine shows another way – a deeper level of harmony and responsibility that can be lived – and this arises the possibility that they too can be making different choices – freely so.”
    The one and only way the atrocities of our world will change is when each of us realises, accepts and begins to live with the harmony and responsibility we all have.

  38. I really appreciate the fact that many people who were present for David Millikin’s ambush decided to write about their experience. We cannot stay silent about this atrocious behaviour.

  39. This disgraceful aggressive intrusion was a clear demonstration of how many in the world are determined to impose their beliefs on others. Universal Medicine does not impose its teachings on anyone and is a beacon of truth and harmony in the world.

  40. I love that you bring this back to the subject of free will. People in this country are lucky enough to be able to choose the Religion, sport, gym, food and place they want to live – just to name a few examples. I am a very head strong individual that has been known to play devil’s advocate in heated debates for most of my life. I have been attending and challenging Universal Medicine since I was 22 years old – I am 34 today, yes its my birthday! Some of these challenges have been loud and some have been private and something I test at home. I am not one to go along with anything, being known for my out spoken manner as a student at school, I am no different now in that respect. The big change has been I have never come across any teachings that are so solid, the words that are presented are secondary to the energy. So when someone talks on relationships, they do so from the experience of having a truly loving relationship. I always found school hypocritical but being a student of Universal Medicine has opened my mind to everything that is going on in the world, I feel like I am a more conscious and loving person, I have more understanding and intelligence to access thanks to treating my day and everything I do as a form of medicine.

    1. Great points Kylie and great comment Sarah! Where else do we find the truth both lived and presented? I have searched for years if not lifetimes so once I came across Universal Medicine I could feel it and knew this was something real . . . no hypocrisy to be found here . . . so I am now committed to being a student of life in the truest sense . . . and nobody can take that away from me.

      1. One day the science of The Livingness will be studied. To live ones words means the words hold a quality that is living and can be heard by the whole body, rather than just by the mind. I predict that this understanding will be a highly useful tool to help people to truly heal from drug and Alcohol abuse. I feel telling people that drugs and drinking are bad for them in a group therapy session and then ending the day with a glass of wine is a tad hypocritical, and from the prevalence of drugs and alcohol in our society, I think its safe to say our current methods have not been that successful. What I see in Universal Medicine is people having no issues with completely healing these things, the question society should be asking is how they are doing it?

  41. “We have the free will to live that choice, to be true to ourselves, to live in a way that is harmonious, responsible, joyful and loving – Will someone please remind David Millikan?” Beautiful Kylie, David Millikan is really missing out just as we all miss out if we are not in connection with ourselves.

  42. Free will brought us here, drive us here and will get us out of here as well. Free will is everything. Yet, not everybody is happy about the fact that some decide to live the future now. This is odd, though. The beauty of those living the future now because of that precise choice is extraordinary and undeniable. The attack and the fury is about that choice that the attackers have not chosen for themselves. Through the attack on others, they confirm their own unloving choices regarding themselves, ‘justified’, of course, in the name of the wellness of society and the danger of (inexistent) cults.

  43. Clearly there are a lot of people still shocked or dismayed from this experience with the media. I wonder what steps they have made to ‘make this right’. I mean considering there is a few people involved you would consider they would have possibly at least contacted some of them to check how they are. You see this type or style of reporting done and you possibly don’t think it’s a big deal. We are so use to seeing cameras in people personal life that maybe we have become a little immune to seeing them like this. I can see from reading and from experience how intrusive this quality of reporting is and I don’t wish this upon anyone, nor should it be allowed anymore. I think we can all stop from this point and ask what is the type of society we want from here forward and with that question actively put in place things to bring that society forward. For me I don’t want to see this style of thing again for anyone.
