We are bombarded by so called ‘role models’ in the media. These men and women have achieved some superiority or greatness in a particular avenue of life they have given focus to and excelled at. Yet often when we delve past the surface the entirety of their existence does not stack up, as other areas of their life suffer.
Growing up I yearned for a true role model, a person who was the real deal, who held the same integrity and quality in all aspects of their life and with no ‘put on’. Someone I could be inspired by. I knew the way people were living was not it but I did not know any other way.
I have known Serge Benhayon since 2003 and never once have I felt he was putting any of it on. Everything Serge presents he has lived. Serge has not held back with what has needed to be said, even if at times it has been tricky and I would say difficult.
When I have gone astray from honouring and truly caring for myself (and there have been many times), since knowing Serge he has been there; he has never once minced his words or dumbed them down for me. He has given them to me straight and it was always exactly what I needed to hear… without fail.
I have never once felt an ounce of judgment from Serge. This is remarkable in itself. For someone to tirelessly listen to all my ‘head talk’ yet be there fully with a loving tender presence, seemingly without any effort, is unheard of in everyday life – and remember I have known Serge for over 10 years. And I am only one of thousands.
At Universal Medicine courses or presentations Serge always has a queue of people wanting help or support with something. Serge, without fail, has time for everyone. He never rushes a moment with a person. He isn’t looking over your shoulder seeing how long the line is, but rather is focussed and gives his full undivided attention and presence to the person he is talking with. It is extremely hard to do; give it a try and you will know what I mean. When we are talking with another person are we actually truly there for them, or do we have a hidden agenda underneath, an agenda that wants something for us and if we don’t get this, we switch off and aren’t interested? I certainly have done this.
It is with the sheer amount of love Serge Benhayon holds for each and every one of us – that enables this unreserved dedication to humanity. This should be celebrated and something for us all to be inspired by. Serge Benhayon is no different to any of us: he has simply chosen a truer and fuller level of expression, one that serves humanity, not self.
I know there has been a lot defamation written in the media about Serge Benhayon, his family and Universal Medicine, but none of it has stuck and this in itself is testament to the integrity and truth Serge lives by. The media hungers for exposing stories but in this instance have missed out on the greatest story of them all – a man living lovingly and inspiring everyone he meets to be more of themselves and to be more naturally loving. This is nothing inherently special as we can all do it, and be the same, but it should be celebrated as very few among us are willing and choosing to do this.
