The Key to The Mystery of ‘The Forgotten Fool’.
These words came to me one day when I was about 17 – I was sitting at a train station, waiting for a train. The words came seemingly out of nowhere; they came only once and very clearly. I heard them and I have never forgotten them.
The words had no significance to me at the time, though I knew they were important. They had no reference to any book I was reading, nor any movie or programme I had seen. These words were a message for me – that I knew, about what, I didn’t.
My whole life since then these words have been there, and I have known and felt that it was something of a riddle to life that I had to ‘de-code’.
For years nothing seemed to present anything of an answer to this ‘riddle’: though I wasn’t ‘actively’ searching, I just felt that the answer would come, perhaps unravel, in its right time. Nevertheless I was always curious, much so because of the strength and clarity of the message.
Over the last many years, as I began to study and to understand, embrace and live the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom (which Serge Benhayon has presented via the vehicle known as Universal Medicine), I knew that this was the answer, or at least that the answer was contained within these teachings.
However, ‘The Key’ had not yet revealed itself clearly… or maybe it had and I just hadn’t lived the Wisdom enough to get the revelation.
‘The Forgotten Fool’, I had begun to understand, was the human being living by the drive of the Spirit, rather than by the impulse of the Soul. The human being was the ‘Forgotten Fool’ because it had lost its way and forgotten its true origins – that of the One Soul; and a ‘Fool’ because it had been taken for a ride, and for a fool!
Hence the ‘Mystery’ was “how did we get there?” – what happened for us to break away from our truth, to be living a life that was not as it was originally intended, a life that was so complicated and at times meaningless?
‘The Mystery’ and ‘The Forgotten Fool’, these things I had started to understand well over the last twelve years, but the ‘de-coding’ was not complete without the understanding of what ‘The Key’ is.
I could safely say in general that the teachings of The Ageless Wisdom are the key, but I have known that I would not have ‘cracked the code’ until I had a definitive understanding of what ‘The Key’ actually is.
I could feel that how I am living now was releasing me to a great extent from living as one of ‘The Forgotten Fools’, but I am also aware that the unlocking of this message was not just for me, it was something to understand for all of humanity: so ‘The Key’ has to be something for everyone, not just for me.
Living with the understanding that there is a greater purpose for our being here, that all is not what it seems, that there are other levels of perception and sense awareness that we as a race have ignored for too long, I could feel that ‘The Key’ was somewhere in this.
We have ignored for a very long time the truth of what we innately have the ability to be aware of – we made that choice!
So how we go about reversing that choice is ‘The Key’.
If we were to live in a way that reverses that choice we would reveal ‘The Mystery’, and it would also expose ‘The Forgotten Fool’.
And so it finally revealed itself very clearly to me, as clearly as that first message, that ‘The Key’ is ‘The Livingness’.
And so twenty six years after receiving that message I have the answer, and like all things with the Ageless Wisdom – it is so simple.
‘The Key to The Mystery of The Forgotten Fool’ is ‘The Way of The Livingness’.

I had a similar experience Annette, I was walking past the local war memorial when I was either 11 or 12 and suddenly I thought would I know the second coming of the Christ? If that person were to walk past me would I recognise them or walk on by? It was something that stayed with me in the back of my mind. Many years later at the age of 50, I met Serge Benhayon and thankfully I have not walked past but slowly built my body so that I can accept the Christ energy that is saturating us all today.
So time is man-made and 26 years is part of the illusion. The message has always been there for us all that The Way of The Livingness is the key to return to the truth of who we are.
Living The way of The Livingness is the way forward, to return to truth, and the truth of who we are.
Yes, it is becoming very clear that we are the receivers of energy, we do not think, we only think we think! Serge Benhayon has been saying it for years but as the ‘forgotten fool’ I have chosen to be blind to it.
I love this message. We have been taken for a ride and a fool to break away from our Truth, our innate knowing. We know what Love is, we know what Joy is and we know that both come from being in connection with the rhythm of an order that is greater than our bodies. We have a choice in every moment to honour that rhythm or not.
It is The Livingness that activates the knowledge, and no amount of words of conviction or persuasion unlocks and releases the mystery nor the forgotten fool. When we find ourselves in a riddle of life we often go ‘How did we get here?’ Forgetfulness is a great disguise for irresponsibility. The ‘mystery’ is often rather mundane and ordinary when it is revealed.
The ageless wisdom holds so many keys, especially now the True written words expand our relationship with True Religion as is the presentations of The Way of The Livingness.
We have been so long lost in the spirit that we have forgotten our grandness and where we are truly from.
We have forgotten that we are magnificent and who we are in truth.
Yes, it is very simple – the way we live our lives determines who we are as people. Do we respect and care for ourselves and others, or do we just pretend. If we care for ourselves behind closed doors, when nobody can see, then it is very easy to care for others within the spotlight. If however, we don’t care for ourselves, we don’t care for those who don’t bring us anything, then when we pretend that we do, it’s obvious – it shows.
It’s such a fascinating story and resonates strongly with me, a divine message that drops in to be understood and unraveled at a later date. “The Key to The Mystery of ‘The Forgotten Fool’.” It sure is in the Livingness, the return to our divine origins (the Mystery), and the daily exposing of the Fool (the spirit) with our honesty, connection to and respect for our body, and our return to living the love we innately are. There is nothing foolish about love as it’s our greatest intelligence and our true nature. Anything less than love is absolutely foolish.
The beauty of The Way of the Livingness, is the continuous advance offered us. We’re given messages, signs and symbols to support us all the time, but the wisdom in the messages may elude us for some time and not be lived at all, until a precise moment comes when we’re ready to fully receive it. And when ready, it simply drops in. This always feels miraculous.
A mystery is but a truth veiled by no hand other than our own.
There are no mysteries in life; there is only truth and all that seeks to veil it.
Without awareness we walk veiled in darkness, unable to see truth.
Beautifully said Doug.
The more we accept and connect to our inner heart the more wisdom we have access too.
To connect to and live from our inner heart is the key, the livingness of this inner love in every thing we do, say, in every aspect of our lives.
The ageless widsom is what we miss the most because it’s what we come from. Not living with that in mind is causing us a lot of tension.
Many seek the code to the key of life to free them from inner imprisonment and pain. The Way of the Livingness is that key. It sets us free, placing us on a path of ever-unfolding awareness and wisdom that transforms our understanding of life making it purposeful and joyful.
Yes and it is SO simple! That is why we question it, because we have been convinced it has got to be hard because so many of us haven’t found it!
I love this sharing, for it shows how the soul speaks to us and even if we don’t get the meaning immediately as life unfolds and with right choices we’re given the code to the key of life and when we do we are truly blessed.
It is inspiring to realise how our Soul is always calling for us to listen, to be guided by its light and wisdom, even when we are not really wanting to listen or take notice. All the same it continues to offer us the opportunity to be moved by its divine quality in order to live the purpose of why we are born; to live the love we are together.
