Best Night Out Ever!

by Zoe Sherrin B.Bus, B.Nat, Lismore Australia

Recently I attended The School of the Livingness/Universal Medicine end of year celebration. It was an amazing night of people coming together, having so much fun celebrating our-selves and each other.

There was a diverse array of performances, all special in their unique expression: from classical singing to ultra cool and funny rapping sisters, to an all male choir, plus other awesome singers, musicians, songwriters and presenters. Each performance so different, yet had the common thread of expressing their true self. As an audience member it allowed me to feel the freedom of expressing the truth of me. I had so much fun listening, sharing food and dancing. It felt great (and funny) to ‘strut’ my moves on the dance floor, to dance with no self- judgement or feeling that others were judging me.

The night was truly amazing and so different in feeling to “Christmas time” celebrations in which I have participated in the past (especially waking up clear the next day, with no regrets from alcohol-fuelled foolishness). I felt the freedom to just be who I am, no holding back, no judgements, not needing to please others or fit in – how glorious is that?… Certainly something to celebrate!

It was a beautiful night, and the thing is, it does not just last for one night – a peak at the end of the year. This joy in connecting with the world in such a loving way is part of our daily lives.

So I would like to say a big thank you to Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and me – for opening up to the possibility that life can be supportive and joyful in our modern world.

  1. For years I would look for any distraction I could think of, within reason, because I was dissatisfied with life. I didn’t know this was the cause at the time, but looking back I hated life, it seemed so meaningless to me. Now I’m back to the real me, I love life so much that I do not want to do or take anything that would disturb the feeling of deep satisfaction I live with now. Thank you Serge Benhayon for living in a way that reflected back to me the true beauty I was missing out on.

  2. The biggest fun is being who we are. No need to add anything else, as joy is and expands without effort, naturally so.

  3. I really enjoy the Universal Medicine celebrations! They are seriously a lot of fun, everyone connected to their essence and expressing their innate qualities together in an atmosphere of equality, integrity, brotherhood and love. I never used to feel safe at parties with alcohol and I always feel 100% safe at the Universal Medicine celebrations.

  4. When we are just left to be who we are, then this is an amazing feeling…Unfortunately this is a rare occurrence because of how much we are bombarded by the outside world continuously. But what I have experienced is that with the Universal Medicine events, it is like there is more space given to be yourself and the more you develop this relationship with yourself the stronger it becomes and the better you can withstand all the bombardments and not forget who you are. And of course then there are all the choices we make that will either support the same or not.

  5. Serge Benhayon certainly does open up a lot of possibilities, such as the fact that life can be supportive and joyful in our modern world. How refreshing and uplifting especially in our current world where there is so little to remind and encourage ourselves to be who we are, naturally so and joyfully so.

  6. I love the celebration events held by Universal Medicine. The music makes my heart jump, and my hips loose! THe room is full of people enjoying themselves without imposing or being imposed upon by others. Everybody should have events like that in their lives, to truly feel free to move.

    1. It’s true Viktoria, experiencing a Universal Medicine celebration would change so many people’s idea of how a celebration can be. At the moment we all do the same thing, alcohol, junk food, maybe drugs etc, and often sleeping it off over days afterwards. Just as we as individual people can offer a reflection of another way, so can a whole event.

      1. You know when you go into a club and everybody is looking to hook up with someone, men looking for their next pray & women for the next catch. We wear our sexy dresses & skirts, dance & show off our sexy moves, how flexible and wild we are – we seek attention, recognition, just an eye to gaze over at us and make us feel worthy. All of that at what expense? How do we feel afterwards? How worth it is it really to put ourselves through that?

  7. Agreed Zoe, and may I add that it put the “C” back in celebration; Clear and Connected, the “P” when we party with Prospering from Purpose and the “D” back in dancing, with Definitely Divine True Movement!

      1. Absolutely, as I feel we are not included in the normal ‘I’ or part ‘I’ which creates a separation or part-i-ing from our connection. This may be drug-induced or through an emotional situation, as they can all create a separation or only a part of the True ‘I’.

  8. “The night was truly amazing and so different in feeling to “Christmas time” celebrations in which I have participated in the past (especially waking up clear the next day, with no regrets from alcohol-fuelled foolishness).” I have found that the best nights I have had have all been free of alcohol, there is far more joy and fun to be had without alcohol because in every moment we are totally able to be ourselves.

  9. I loved this point Zoë “It was a beautiful night, and the thing is, it does not just last for one night – a peak at the end of the year. This joy in connecting with the world in such a loving way is part of our daily lives.” Because when we live the love that we are our life is no longer a rollercoaster with ups and downs it’s beautiful steady.

    1. Yes, this is a great point Sally and Zoe, living a steady life does not imply it is boring or mundane. Instead it is an ever deepening process and expansion of life when lived by the principles of the Ageless Wisdom through the practice of The Way of The Livingness.

  10. “It was a beautiful night, and the thing is, it does not just last for one night – a peak at the end of the year. This joy in connecting with the world in such a loving way is part of our daily lives.” I agree Zoe, joy is a living way, as is being ourselves is, expressing our true qualities and letting those out -even when busting a dance move! The celebrations with Universal Medicine are so different as they are a celebration of all that we are and live and share with others.

  11. What is so wonderful too is that there is no alcohol no drugs, no overly stimulating food or drink at all and despite any beliefs to the contrary everyone has an amazingly joyful time and we wake up the next day feeling the same joy!

    1. So often parties are about letting loose – eating junk, reckless alcohol consumption, drugs, smokes, and not waking up feeling great at all!

  12. It is absolutely revolutionary to have the space to celebrate in a way that leaves you feeling wonderful not just at the time but the next day and all the days after that. How beautiful it is to appreciate this, knowing it is made possible by all the choices that lead up to the celebrated moment and that these choices then support us in all the moments afterward.

  13. I love these celebrations – I have been attending them since I was young and I have always felt so safe and cared for. Where else can you go and dance and have fun without any drugs or alcohol and know you are totally safe to look nice and dress up and get home in time for a good night’s sleep.

  14. It certainly becomes a moot point when re connect with our innermost and stop looking for entertainment as a source of joy. That does not mean we can’t enjoy music or dance etc as described here, it is just done without seeking to fill a need and cover the emptiness we may feel.

  15. The level of joy we feel in any situation, is in direct relationship to the love we choose to receive and express in our daily lives. Zoe, your best night out ever is a beautiful confirmation for you, of the loving choices you are making in your life.

  16. Celebrating with people who are committed to simply be themselves is wonderful as it frees up all those around them to do the same.

  17. Thank you Zoe, the celebrations with Universal Medicine bring even more of the true me out, instead of hiding it away with shyness as I did in the past. The joy of true celebration is everyone in their essence together.

  18. It is so refreshing to come together to celebrate and simply appreciate with each other with no need for anything other than being open to the connections we share. Nothing can compare to the joy, inspiration and enrichment that this brings.

  19. ” I felt the freedom to just be who I am, no holding back, no judgements, not needing to please others or fit in – how glorious is that?… Certainly something to celebrate! ” That’s for sure, even just living that is celebration.

  20. My first Universal Medicine end of year party I am pretty sure I stood on the sidelines watching everyone. But the more I bring love into my life the lighter, joyful and carefree I feel. These days I don’t bat an eyelid joining others on stage! In the past I would of needed a lot of liquid courage (re:vodka) to do such a thing.

    1. It’s amazing Leigh how life changes when we live from our essence. Now I have reconnected to myself, who I am naturally and how I am in the world is very different to some of the ways of how I lived in the past.

    2. I was the same. It took me a while to get used to celebrating in a true way. Now I see celebrations as an opportunity to reflect on my choices and the way I hold myself at celebratory events is always a reflection of how I have been living.

  21. it is so interesting to consider that every day will be the best ever as we are forever expanding to a greater awareness and responsibility and from appreciating that, we for sure every day will be our best day ever too.

    1. That’s right Nico, why wait for a few parties each year, the true joy of celebration can be there in the way we live and our constant evolution.

  22. I am glad that you point out that it is not about “one fun night” that is better than all other nights, but more about a lifestyle that is with us always. That being fun and light and free in our bodies is something that can happen every day. We can dance like nobody is watching, rap while we make dinner, sing in the shower and love every minute of it. We do not need to consume a depressant, such as alcohol in order to have a good time, that is one of the lies that is distorting our Nation, celebration is something children do without any substances, so the concept of us doing it too, is not actually that far fetched. Universal Medicine is leading the way with how to party!

  23. Zoe is it not wonderful to stop judging oneself and to meet people who are not judging either? “It felt great (and funny) to ‘strut’ my moves on the dance floor, to dance with no self-judgement or feeling that others were judging me.”

  24. Yes I agree, Zoe, there is nothing quite like being with others who are just being fully themselves. No bitching or gossiping, comparing or getting drunk to deal with the social awkwardness.

  25. The wonderful gatherings and celebrations that are held at some Universal Medicine events are possible simply because of the great joy in those attend. That joy can’t help but be felt on a giant scale!

  26. I love how the celebration wasn’t a peak and then you felt rubbish the next day but was a fun expression of joy that came with you into the next moment.

  27. There is nothing better than enjoying a celebration with a whole heap of friends, and then waking up the next day feeling as fresh and alive as you did the day before. I love being able to enjoy myself now in alcohol free environments where the people there aren’t trying to out perform each other. It’s actually the most natural thing in the world.
