I met Serge Benhayon for the first time in June 2008 in London. My first impression, without having heard him speak, was one of simplicity and warmth. If I had been honest my true feeling was to never ever leave his side again.
I spent ten days in England that time for a couple of Universal Medicine workshops and courses. An amazing experience which would change the way I saw and understood life. This was mostly something I felt on a deeper level, not something my mind could understand at the time.
The first times I personally spoke to Serge Benhayon we did not have long conversations. Actually, for a long time I was not able to be close to him for more than a few minutes. But that was all okay, for Serge has the ability to say it all in only a few words, two if needed. The few words he said to me were “be love” and “just be all that you are”.
In the years after I never forgot these words. Somehow they were always there in the back of my mind. I can see now that I have been trying very hard to not feel who I truly am. This was before I met Serge, but I also continued to feel that way for quite some time after that event. I did not want to see the simplicity of what he teaches – to just be ourselves.
Today it is not clear what exactly happened that made me stop resisting, but I did.
Today I choose to come back to this precious beautiful being that is me, every time I get distracted.
Today somehow it’s just not possible, or at least too painful, to do or think anything that is not loving and supporting of me.
It all began with the words “Be Love” and I am finally allowing myself to be just that…
