During the recent ‘Sacred Esoteric Healing – Level Three’ course presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, something occurred that I am compelled to put in writing, in a sense a contract with myself. Care to witness?
Working in a group with other students I was struck, literally like a bell, by another student’s singular expression of her unwavering relationship to the Truth of who she is. It was an amazingly transformative communication and, as love always is, oh so simple.
Later, at the start of a lunch-break, I was able to ask her more about what she described as her ‘rock’.
How great it is when someone is just fully who they really are. Nothing in the way, nothing modified, no self-consideration.
What ensued was a direct pointing back to me, which at that moment felt divine. I was able to get how I had been making a subtle separation between my life, the everyday livingness, and the divine. Not one, but two. Not God immanent, but a breath and more away.
Hah to that falsehood!

Very precious to read how we can allow to be inspired by others’ expression. This openness feels very humbling and restores the Brotherhood we all come from.
Returning to the vibration of the breath of God within us is to know who we are.
We are quite literally the breath of God, when we breathe in so does He and when we breathe out so does He.
Subtle separations lead to deviations that keep us off track for many lifetimes.
It’s very powerful to just be ourselves, for everyone involved. There are so many pictures and expectations on how we are supposed to be as women, men, friends, mothers, fathers… the list goes on, but how simple it is when we can just be ourselves.
That subtle separation, like a spectator’s gallery, that affords options of yes, and yes-but. I know that one. There is a character that likes to stand there soaking up the view, thinking there is a choice dependent on it, even though it can hear loud and clear the noise as its foothold keeps crumbling.
Love the wisdom you have shared Alan. We can all deepen in our Love of self first so we can then also deepen the relationship we have with God.
Adding to the discussion at dinner the other night, we discussed how God is our father and the Stars are our mother, wow! what a relationship we can have with these universal truths.
To deepen our love of self, along with deepening our relationship with God is a wise choice.
And at this level of understanding it is worthwhile sharing love offers others the space to also find a relationship with their own Soul and God, without any imposition.
Our interactions with one another can teach us so much – the wisdom shared from a dear friend or even a stranger can be life-changing. Sometimes we need that different perspective on life, sometimes we need to hear it in other words to realise, to understand, for things to click.
Communication through words is the final part of the communication. I can appreciate that what you have shared about what was verbally communicated was backed up by how you saw them move and be and therefore came with a livingness.
Ah absolutely! Often the same words can be said by two different people, but I can only hear it from the person who has integrity in their body. The other person who is preaching or trying to sound smart, loses my interest very fast.
Yep, having been that person who tried to always have the answer, it was very frustrating to not be listened to. Now I am clocking my needs and how I actually was not very good at listening! Then we know if we have something that could support or not, most importantly if they are asking for support or simply sharing a challenge.
So much of what is presented in life deviates us away from the truth, and assuredly we all can feel this is not working, and are there-fore looking for some answers or are completely lost from the drugs and abusive ways that have become normal, so when a divine revelation is found we miss the significance of that level of Truth.
I have been in many UM workshops with people from all across the world and it really is amazing when you see someone open up to a realisation or claim their truth solidly.
“How great it is when someone is just fully who they really are. Nothing in the way, nothing modified, no self-consideration.” Spending time with my niece who is 3 years old has been totally inspiring, she is right there with being exactly who she is, and gosh is it refreshing when someone is unashamedly expressing all the they are.
Life can be so simple when we connect to our essences because it just flows but when we compartmentalise we make life about individuality and not about True Relationships and Brotherhood.
We cannot separate who we are and where we come from, from what we do and how we are in life. When this is reflected to us from others, simply by them being and bringing all that they are into the moment, it is so super simple clear and simple that we wonder why we held back from living that way ourselves for so long, when it’s our natural way of being.
Opening the equation that brings us to the coalface of our divinity is as simple as a breath or two, as you have shared Alan.
Not only have I met amazing people through Universal Medicine but what I have come to learn is that we all have access to this very same wisdom and love if we so choose this for ourselves.
Another’s thruth-full expression can awaken and change our life, can support us see more clearly and set us free.
Set us free to see the truth, ‘I had been making a subtle separation between my life, the everyday livingness, and the divine. Not one, but two.’
‘I was struck, literally like a bell, by another student’s singular expression of her unwavering relationship to the Truth of who she is.’ I too have been stuck, literally like a bell, by observing those around me who had that greater sense of their purpose and a deep knowing of who they are… it inspired me to reflect on my own purpose and who I am… coming to an answer and a forever deepening of it, is a box of treasures.
It is always beautiful when we get a moment of clarity and we recognise something clearly in another as it gives us a great reflection to realise that we too can have the same connection if we choose.
It is always beautiful to have moments of clarity, moments of awareness.
Our elder brothers and the love we naturally are is but a breath away. It is only we who keep it out through our ignor-ance of the fact, which allow us to dwell for a moment longer in the false reality we call everyday life.
It is the ‘unwavering relationship to the Truth of who’ we feel empowered us to authorize ourselves to be the one who calls it from the rooftop: That we all are equally the Sons of God.
Beautiful Alex. A power that resides within needs to be lived from the inside to the outer – our love is to share, especially in a world that lacks the deep love that we come from.
Forget ‘sons of’ we are the living body of God Himself.
Gorgeous that we are now claiming that we are all equally the sons of God.
Even just a silky, nearly transparent veil would still be a separation from the at-one-ment with God.
Absolutely. We are the consciousness of God and that is absolute.
Absolutely. We are the consciousness of God and that is absolute.
Our every-breath can reconnect us to our most divine aspect or essence.
I love it when suddenly something becomes very clear, a duh moment, why in earth did we not see that before? Once we recognise this, it is never forgotten.
Loved what you shared Alan, something for me to ponder on, as for sixty years of my life God has always been outside of me, not so the true God and the oneness we all belong to. Am I living as one or am I still living as two, a great question to ask.
I agree, I have always seen it as two, yet why? and if that was how it was, can I build a livingness that offers me a different experience?
The seperation makes us feeble, powerless and ineffective; in the Oneness, we realise and live our power.
Alan, this is such a simple sharing that if we lived would transform our lives but we like to have pockets in our lives and places that we put greater or lesser importance on.
‘Not one, but two. Not God immanent, but a breath and more away.’ – a falsehood that is very convincing the way life is lived and perceived by our five senses. I get the sense that only when we get to know ourselves first in at-one-ment with the Divine that the 5 senses no longer have a hold over us and thus we are not identified by and reduced to the human frame.
A soul-full account of our Livingness.
Indeed all is one and should be lived as one. The spirit has to surrender then in full, otherwise this separation remains.
Oh wow. I love such communications. Thank you for sharing the power of your insight.
These exquisite pearls of wisdom are a like a match offering us the possibility of re-igniting the awareness we might have closed off from, but non-the-less all hold within.
we put so much in between the light which we carry in the body and the light of God. So much that we think we are that what is in between. But it is not. We are light and love, not the drama’s, misery and the issues we create ourselves..
So true Sylvia we are in truth both the light and the love of God and yet we’re all stomping around on earth casting the darkest of shadows.
Ah the inspiration we can get from another by their sheer presence is beautiful and can be oh so stilling.
Beautifully claimed Alan.
In current life, we see everything as parts as a part of our life that is religion, a part that is our home life, a part that is our work life and so on. But what if we could bring them all together and live them all at the same time without boxing them into days, hours or minutes of our day.
Yes that is really powerful to consider and then experiment with. Everything is one, how we are and the quality we bring is all one and therefore we are at one with the divine we are from.
Great wake-up call Alan. The divinity should be one every moment, then life follows, so clear. Integrating divinity in our lives, or running it next to our lives, is just better our human life. Thank you.
How can we ever be foolish enough to think our purpose is to be individuals and seek to isolate ourselves in comfort and protection from each other when there is so much for us to be inspired by and learn together of the love we are within, the divine love that unifies us inescapably so, that which we are here to live.
Great observation Alan, and such inspiration. There is indeed no in between with the divine, the livingness and life. It is one, and should be lived as one. Otherwise we are trying to improve our life with the divine, a switching off and on.
‘Improving life’ will never work because we have gone down the wrong road. Heading back to where we came from and choosing not to see each other as competition and different may be a fresh approach we could work on in our own life.
” I had been making a subtle separation between my life, the everyday livingness, and the divine.” Great to read this today and reconsider my relationship with the divine. Thankyou Alan.
The beauty of oneness in action is an open invitation for further embracing the divine, our life and ourselves as one as well.
This is when you really know that communication is more than just words, but your entire livingness (way of life). We can lie in our words, but we can’t hide the truth our body is communicating, endlessly so.
I have read this a few times before but had to re-read it a quite few times again this time for me to really get this. Every time it felt like I was guessing what you were trying to convey in these words, and really, I have come to a point that it just had to be felt. Such is a power of reflection. Take it, or leave it. Be inspired, or not.
To be inspired by another and then to give ourselves the space to really feel as to why we are inspired and to take it to the next step as to what we could then change in our lives to be the inspiration we saw in another is a great thing … and something if I am honest I do not fully see through. Something for me to reflect on as to why.
What a reflection for you to feel Alan and a pivotal moment when we see something that we hadn’t seen before. As the clarity of this unfolds, how have we not noticed this before when it is right there to be felt?
Don’t you love it when you dismantle a falsehood? I sure do. It’s like a weight has been lifted and the subsequent feeling of liberation is glorious, and usually way overdue.
Many of us go through life not truly knowing who we are and I was one of them, I didn’t allow myself to acknowledge what I felt, my opinions were not my own, how I dressed and how I lived were not directly from me. That is changing now.
” I had been making a subtle separation between my life, the everyday livingness, and the divine.”
What a learning , its so wonderfull how simply this revelation was brought to you thank you for sharing Alan.
We belong to an infinite oneness but so often we live our lives in parts.
A oneness which is always waiting for us to come home, and just a breath away.
