I have to say Universal Medicine knows how to put on an end of year celebration, and Saturday’s was without a doubt the best one yet.
Not only did we get to move and groove to the oh so funky beats of Glorious Music, but several students took part in a concert for the rest of us. And while each performance was completely different, from the joyfully playful Juzzie Smith, the angelic Victoria Carter, the stylish and soulful men’s choir with Chris James, to the outrageously truthful Baldwin sisters, Rebecca and Sarah, and the deeply inspiring songs of Michael Benhayon, Emmalee Benhayon and Miranda Benhayon, you could feel the absolute dedication to life, humanity and true expression in each one.
I laughed, I cried, I clapped and cheered and I got up and sang along when we were invited to. It was an amazing feeling to be part of such a joyous celebration. I am incredibly inspired and had so much fun just being me. And all of this without alcohol or drugs, and best of all, no hangover!!!
The other wonderful part of this whole day was the knowledge that amongst this gathering of over 300 people, my 6 year-old son was completely safe even though he wasn’t sitting with me or with me on the dance floor. He’d found something far more interesting – the sound desk! He was just allowed to be himself as all the children are at Universal Medicine events. They are welcomed and as much a part of the celebrations as everyone else. No better way to describe this than as a true family.
To Serge Benhayon and the Universal Medicine team, a heartfelt thank you for your continued love and commitment to us all and for inspiring in me the ongoing development of joy, love and harmony in my life.
