Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working, or is it the ultimate expression of love to potentially pop peoples’ bubble of pride and ask, “Could there be another way?“
I was certainly stuck in thinking life was ‘fine’. After all, it was a simple enough assessment to make. All I needed to do was to look around me and, as long as my life was like other people’s, my life must be fine. On bad days, I would look at people ‘doing it tough’ and that would also confirm my sense that I was okay. Generally speaking, this is what I also noticed other people around me doing.
The reality though, was that my life was anything but fine. I lived with poor sugar regulation, moodiness, back pain that would have me bedridden a couple of times a year, the sore neck, a highly functional but not overly caring marriage, a job I felt obliged to stay in to provide for the family, an expanding waist line, and the list goes on. But looking around me, everyone had some variation of these things going on, so even though I didn’t feel fine, I had resigned myself to believing that this was as good as it gets.
What is interesting is that I had trained as a Natural Therapist; I had completed post grad training in counselling and trained in many other modalities. What is interesting is that even when I compared myself to other people in a similar profession, they also had similar things going on. What is even more interesting is that we had all the knowledge, the training and the tools to ensure that life was more than ‘fine’.
In 2004, my wife dragged [yes, dragged] me along to the Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 1 Workshop presented by Serge Benhayon and run by Universal Medicine. By the end of that workshop I knew that something about the workshop was different but couldn’t put my finger on what it was. I would look around at the people presenting the course and those already working as practitioners and what I saw was something within them that was so vital, true, and yet unforced, that I could not but consider that there might be another way.
For the first time in my life, Universal Medicine presented me with another way to be with life. It was a way to step off the treadmill of what I should or shouldn’t do; a way to feel if what I was doing to myself (and others) was supportive or not.
This gift of simple choice was one of the most liberating tools I have found. It was to stop the spin of the world from spinning inside me.
Over the years, through my own choices, I have built a way of living that delivers a level of vitality that is not forced or derived from sugar, caffeine or any other stimulant.
I have a more honest connection with people than I’ve had before, I love the work that I do, earn more than I have done previously and I relate to my wife and family more deeply than before. So, after years of studying ‘holistic medicine’, the Universal Medicine modalities have been the first that have delivered a truly holistic result, without claiming that they do.
I live with such deep appreciation that Serge Benhayon cares for humanity more than his own popularity to ask the question,
“Could there be another way?”
The answer is undoubtedly YES and the evidence is the thousands of people like me from across the world that have made their own way of living and who are realising more and more that the answers were within us all along… we were just not asking the right question…
“Could there be another way?” The answer is undoubtedly YES.

Yes, how many people truly care for humanity more than their own popularity…I would say Serge Benhayon definitely loves humanity despite the horrible lies that are presented about him.
Thank you Joel, yes I relate to the kicking and screaming as my wife also dragged me along, and from that first workshop I also knew something was different, and it felt like I had returned home.
Love this, Joel, when when we look around we can choose to see what we see. We an look at people in distress and think, my God nobody is coping well with life – there must be another way. Or we could think, nobody is coping well with life, there’s only this way.
Comparison is a dangerous game because we can always find someone who is much worse off than ourselves, which can then cause us to think that where we are is just fine or even good, rather than to truly evaluate where we’re at.
Very wise Alexis, it is important that we look at our own plate first like they say where I come from – or in english – keep your eyes to yourself & keep walking.
Thank you Viktoria and adding to your sayings, keep you nose out of my business, or until you have walked all my steps in these shoes how do you know anything about me, so judge not.
Absolutely as soon as we go into judgement or comparison we are lost so thank you Alexis.
“Could there be another way?“ The Way of The Livingness is the way of truth.
“Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working”? All we need do is pick up a news paper and read the shocking situations taking place around our world as well as the lack of respect or regard for people in the way many of the articles are written, to know all is not well in our world. Then put on top of that the fact that millions are reading these news papers every day and we are not all considering that perhaps “the way we currently live is not working” to me proves that indeed “the way we currently live is TRULY not working”.
It is stating a fact when we say how we are currently living is not working, one just has to look at our young people, our schools and colleges to see the sad state of how things are.
“For the first time in my life, Universal Medicine presented me with another way to be with life. It was a way to step off the treadmill of what I should or shouldn’t do; a way to feel if what I was doing to myself (and others) was supportive or not.” And this is the beauty of Universal Medicine, as it asks nothing of you, only offers an opportunity to understand that there is another way to live – the choice is then all yours as to what you do wtih that.
To be truly free is simply to be aware of all the choices energetically speaking – every single one of them and not have any hidden, for in the end there are only 2 choices of energy: the energy that is from our deepest essence the core of who we are, or the energy that is not of this divine source. Once we are aware of these two, then we know we have a true choice and we are free – free to make the choice of one or the other. This is freedom. For one can be behind bars and yet feel more free than a man that walks the plains on earth, yet knows not the freedom of energetic choice.
“Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working” – there is no arrogance in this, just simply a realisation or the willingness to be honest and reassess the situation and then see what is there for us to unfold.
“So, after years of studying ‘holistic medicine’, the Universal Medicine modalities have been the first that have delivered a truly holistic result, without claiming that they do.” And this is just one of the many extraordinary qualities that make up the modalities of Universal Medicine, with their unassuming and very humble but unquestionably honest and simple approach towards true holisitic health.
