I have Watched and am Now Inspired

by Sandhya Mistry, Brisbane, Australia

Today I was truly inspired by my partner of 26 years.

Over the past few months, I have watched while my partner and others have had to endure constant harassment on blog sites that a few disgruntled people who blame Universal Medicine for the break up of their relationships, have been writing on. They have blatantly told lies, have manipulated information to incite hatred, are constantly barraging them with insulting comments, and are now trying to ruin their professional reputations with completely unfounded allegations.

I have watched while she has been lied to by journalists to firstly obtain an interview, then be interviewed for up to an hour, to then only have one line manipulated to fit their story.

I have watched how the media have tried to threaten her with another false story to ruin her professional standing when she has objected to their behaviour.

I have watched while the media have portrayed women as being weak and unable to think for themselves, and being mindless followers of Universal Medicine’s founder Serge Benhayon, and tried to use my partner as an example of this.

I have watched the media and journalists tell lies about Serge Benhayon and his family, and label Universal Medicine and all who are associated with it a ‘cult’.

As I write I observe my partner’s reaction to everything that has happened. Even though there is a risk that her name, reputation, professional standing, family and business could be adversely affected, she does not change who she is and what she portrays to the world: she does not shy away from criticism or make herself inconspicuous, from fear of what the repercussions may be. Instead I see her stronger than ever before, more vocal in the truth of who she is, working tirelessly on her business which she now has even more passion for. I see her not be afraid of calling out what is not right with the media’s exploits and the trolling that is happening on these blog sites; and this is all done not with any anger or malice, but from the true love for humanity that she has.

So I am inspired! Inspired to be all of who I am, and not hide it away for my own self satisfaction or comfort. Inspired to call out when something is not right: for by saying nothing, I am condoning these lies or actions to be acceptable. Inspired to stand in my truth and allow the world to see this in all that I do.

  1. Thank you Sandhya for a truly inspiring blog, standing for truth in the face of all the lies and manipulation of truth takes so much strength and commitment on your partners part and an amazing reflection for you and us. I have started to step up and call things out that I feel are not truth, with no attachment, even if it does rock the boat at times.

  2. Sandhya I have to tell you that I am also inspired about your partner and about you – thank you so much for not holding back as with that you show the world that speaking up without reaction is something very needed to stopp such supremacy energy.

    1. There is so much love when one speaks up without reaction but from pure love, in the past I have been pulled up about being judgemental with so much love that I can barely put it in words. That was so healing and it helped me to really feel how bad that judgement was, to drop it and move on.

  3. It is hard to be under attack. If we add being under attack for something false, this is even worse. It may lead to all kinds of reactions. Yet, when you know that what is being attacked is something true that you hold dearly in your heart by people who are bothered by that truth because they do not wish to choose for themselves, things change. You understand the game and simply carry on.

    1. Beautifully said Eduardo. If we observe the energy that is directed at us without takeing it personally we get to see the bigger picture and there is no room for reactions.

  4. You can very practically feel your partners steadiness in your description, despite the onslaught, and how that has inspired you and I am sure many others. To show them that being that steady is not only possible, but what a positive effect it has on everything… super cool.

  5. Thank you Sandhya, and I am inspired by all you have shared. When we consistently stand up for what we know is the truth then the truth will be known by all.

  6. In this age of keyboard cowards it is easy for people to sit in the dark comfort of their offices and type abuse to people they have never even let alone know anything about. Which is why we need to clean up the internet so that it is a safe and supportive environment for not only children but adults too.

    1. Very spot on Brendan, because adults receive constant abuse from the internet too and its a shame because many of us don’t even talk about it, it’s swept under the rug, ignored and left for another to deal with.

    1. Spot on Kathleen – to hear what Sandhya has shared is super inspiring, and knowing too that behind every powerhouse of a person, lies another powerhouse of a person to support as a team!

  7. Sandhya this is a beautiful blog expressing your deep appreciation for your partner and all that she brings to this world – I absolutely agree with all you share here as I have also known your partner for many years and am always inspired and delighted as well by their amazingness and their choice to be who they truly are.

  8. My deepest respect for everyone who stands tall in the face of injustice, lies, ridicule, threat… in short, everything that is not honouring truth and behaving loveless to a fellow brother. It is such people that show us that we all can do it.

  9. Thank you Sandhya, you and your partner are very inspiring. We as a society have allowed the bullying minority to get away with an enormous amount of lies and harm for far too long such that often we have even lost touch with the truth. The only way out of this disgraceful situation is for each of us to stand up for love and truth as you have described, for nothing is of greater value.

  10. We all see so much every day, and we feel and sense a great deal that is not caring, supportive or full of Love. We can frame it as being accepting or tolerant of others, but holding back the truth of what we feel is actually poisonous to us and harmful to others. It’s crazy how we live believing it to be the other way around. When you consider how good it feels to get what you feel ‘off your chest’ and then see how much that goes on in our world we don’t speak up about, well no wonder our health and well-being is not that great. Thank you Sandhya for inspiring me to share what I feel, lovingly.

  11. Beautiful appreciation of your partner Sandhya. Expressing our appreciation especially to our loved ones as they can get left whether verbally or in writing is incredibly powerful. The appreciation doesn’t have to big but every time I express it from my body my whole being and the person I am expressing to expands… it is very beautiful.

  12. ‘Inspired to call out when something is not right: for by saying nothing, I am condoning these lies or actions to be acceptable.’ Mostly when lies are uttered either we react and speak out in emotion or we say nothing not wanting to get involved any further than necessary. To be able to stay very centred and stand tall expressing the truth in a loving way without compromise is an art that most of us need practise in and the world is asking for.

  13. It must be terrible to be manipulated and lied to by media to get the story/the angle they want. I don’t watch/ read the mainstream news anymore as I don’t believe what I see, there are so many agendas at play. To witness this with Universal Medicine is the most stark proof, something so caring and loving so bastardised into sensational lies.

  14. And that inspiration goes far and wide Sandhya,,. when someone has endured lies and accusations, and deliberate attempts to have their livelihood and reputation ruined, and they stand up tall to this the way your partner has, it is inspiring beyond measure. And from what I have seen and experienced, what comes back to us when we stand in the face of evil not cowering one iota, is an all-encompassing success that is underpinned by a joy that does not waiver – in essence, more, and then more and more love fills up our lives, as this is what we have claimed.

  15. Sandhya, this is beautiful – to stand for Truth no matter what when we know to the bone this very Truth is a testament to your partner and shows that there is not one ounce of a mindless follower here. In fact I know you partner, and if it were not for the seriousness of the allegations, this would actually be a hilarious statement – it could not be further from the truth. Your partner only ever makes a decision for herself and she does this with the grace and knowing that any decision she makes is going to affect all those around her and hence her absolute understanding of the responsibility that lies herein. This is something to be truly inspired by!

  16. We are here to be our true selves, to claim back our origin, our natural divine source. Not becoming a person, or posture or attitude that is expected. Just the connection to who we are will defeat the absolute evil we have allowed – to be all that we are not.

  17. That’s exactly it isn’t it, not looking across a line and seeing where everything else is and not standing up for what you feel is the truth because no one else is standing with you. At times there are things happening all around us that need us to not turn a blind eye too. What this article describes is exactly that as some may call this just an everyday experience and that’s the point. How do we allow this to continue? I don’t mean protests in the streets or picket lines but standing firm with every point you truly feel is off course and saying no in the way you live. So when someone you know or may not even know is bullied, harassed, intimidated and the list goes on where are we with it, do we just read the story or turn a blind eye? Or do we make a stand in our own lives to see the same thing happening around us and bring the truth to it? I know articles and things like this bring more to me to see and to say no on a different level.

  18. It is great to see the world as it is and not think it is not that bad and the media is meaning well, what has happened is truly not ok and how you and your partner dealt with it is very inspiring. I love the fact that “this is all done not with any anger or malice, but from the true love for humanity that she has.”, this makes a real difference because if we would be angry in the way we call out what is not true we are actually just adding to the fire, so to speak. We are then contributing to the same thing we don’t agree with. Expressing in the way we want the world to be, that is with love for us all, is the way forward.
