Universal Medicine & the Media: Why the Elephant is more Interesting than the Fly

by Marika Cominos, Wellbeing Business Owner, Melbourne Australia

There’s an old tale I’ve heard and it goes something like this:

‘Once there were four blind travellers who came across this ‘Big Thing’ in the jungle. One bent down, felt around, and said, ‘No sweat! It’s only some tree stumps’. Another felt the middle and said, ’It’s a wall – we can’t get around’. Another felt a swish against his face and said, ‘Hey! It’s a flying insect!’. The fourth reached up, got a fright, and yelled, ‘Run for your life – a snake!’

The ‘Big Thing’ was an elephant. One blind traveller felt its legs, one its side, one its tail, the other its trunk, and so came to a conclusion. Each told a different story about The ‘Big Thing’, and what we human beings seem to have, is just so many limited, biased, culturally and linguistically relative perspectives, ideals, beliefs, narratives and language about this ‘Big Thing’! Could it be possible that what we think and believe we see, is often tainted by what we want to see or want to believe?

So far, the things I have been reading in the media about Universal Medicine are mostly from the perspective of a few disgruntled men who are looking for someone to blame for their problems. It seems that the media are only listening to a persistent fly trying to annoy the Elephant. I am waiting for a journalist who will see the grandness of the Elephant that stands before them.

There are so many amazing stories of people who have made the most awesome health and well-being changes in their lives, inspired by the love and dedication of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. Why are we not reporting and celebrating this in mainstream media? One only needs to read the plethora of blogs here to be inspired and see what is really going on…

    • Stories that defy the odds
    • Stories of health and well-being turnarounds that really are quite miraculous, especially when you look at the statistics of illness and disease that are on the rise
    • Stories about real people making real changes
    • Stories about people who have the courage to speak openly and honestly about dark experiences of where they have come from… and the joys of where they are today
    • Stories of people claiming their awesomeness
    • Stories that touch the heart
    • Stories that are about love
    • Stories that everyone can relate to
    • Stories that inspire
    • Stories that are not make-believe but are REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES from people of all ages, race, religion, gender and occupations.
    • Stories that I feel humanity would want to hear about

I look forward to the day that the mainstream Media does some unbiased research on Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine to show the complete picture – the truth of what is really going on. I for one, amongst hundreds of others, have had profound changes to my health and well-being.

It could be one of the most profound discoveries on the topic of health and well-being ever found by journalism!

  1. It will be great when someone from mainstream media has the courage to stand up and express the truth no matter what.

  2. ‘Unbiased research’ – a rare thing in today’s world. All depends on who is funding it and what they want to prove. Cynical? Maybe, but there is so much corruption these days…….

  3. I know so many people who have made profound changes in their life, taking responsibility for their health and way of living. A great story to be told by a journalist who loves truth not lies.

  4. “Could it be possible that what we think and believe we see, is often tainted by what we want to see or want to believe?”
    I would say yes to this question based on what we have been brought up to believe, we are influenced by our siblings, parents, our circle of family, friends, school, universities. We absorb this cocktail of ideals, beliefs, pictures so that what we see and what we hear has to be tainted. When we then have an investment in this cocktail I don’t think we would take too kindly to someone coming up to us and pointing out that what we are drinking is actually poisoning us, because we don’t want to be caught out in the lie.

    1. Beautifully expressed Mary. The thing is that when someone who is out of those believes and investments comes up to freely express what we deeply know is true, some need to create a lie to not allow it to change their created world.. and that lie has consequences. Subscribing to that lie or not, is a choice, but no matter what we create to avoid it, truth always remains untouchable within us. Sooner or later it will be revealed again.

  5. The story about the elephant is a great analogy about how we all interpret life differently, with different perspectives and different outlooks… at the end of the day, in this story, the truth was that the ‘thing’ not being fully understood was the elephant. How much of life are we missing the full picture of, but all adamantly stating we know it, when it’s just a part that we are describing?

    1. I’ve always loved the elephant analogy. A lot depends on our perception and what we want to see / believe – the parts rather than the whole truth. There is thus a difference between ‘my’ truth, ‘your’ truth and The Truth.
